The Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce is hosting a panel discussion at Dunwoody High School July 17 to provide Dunwoody residents with information about the upcoming transportation sales tax referendum.

The panel will include local traffic reporter Captain Herb Emory; Don Boyken, president of the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce; Bob Dallas, Dunwoody Planning Commission chairman and former Director of the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety; Michael Smith, Dunwoody Director of Public Works; and Ed Ellis, Managing Partner of engineering firm Kimley-Horn and Associates.

On July 31, voters will be asked whether they would like to institute a 1-cent sales tax, known commonly as T-SPLOST for transportation special local option sales tax, to fund regional transportation projects.

“What the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce is doing is educating Dunwoody citizens about the direct benefit they will experience here in Dunwoody with the transportation improvements made possible by the T-SPLOST,” Boyken said in a news release. “Importantly, this will give citizens of Dunwoody the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered by transportation experts who know Dunwoody.”

The event will be held in the auditorium of the high school and will include a reception from 6 to 7 p.m. and the panel discussion from 7 to 8 p.m.
