Dunwoody city officials plan to meet with builders, contractors, homeowners and residents Oct. 29 to talk about the changes in the city’s newly adopted zoning and land development codes.

Dunwoody City Council adopted the new codes Oct. 14. The new codes were developed over 22 months of public meetings in what Dunwoody officials have described as an effort to make the city’s zoning and development regulations represent the needs and wishes of city residents. The city’s previous rules were copies from the DeKalb County regulations in place when the city opened for business five years ago.

Staff members from the city’s Community Development Department and representatives from the Council for Quality Growth would be on hand Tuesday, Oct. 29, “to provide clarity, details and information on the new code,” city officials said in a press release Oct. 23.

The city said participants may submit questions in advance by emailing Planning Coordinator Christie Mager at christie.mager@dunwoodyga.gov .

The meeting is scheduled to last from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the City Council Chambers at Dunwoody City Hall, 41 Perimeter Center East.
