“Six years ago today, on Dec. 1, 2008, the wonderful place we know as Dunwoody officially became a city,” Councilman Terry Nall wrote on his social media and sent to city staff, the mayor and fellow council members. “Happy Birthday!  Let’s keep making it A Better Dunwoody.”

The rest of Nall’s announcement as follows:

“When we relocated to Atlanta in 1998, I noticed something about Dunwoody was very special – near magical.  It was outwardly evident that someone or various groups invested much time and attention into creating and preserving the look, feel, heart, and soul of the then-unincorporated Dunwoody.  Since then, I’ve come to know many of the persons and multiple groups involved with those efforts.”

“The incorporation efforts that culminated in our becoming an official city six years ago on Dec. 1, 2008, provided us with the legal entity and responsibility to continue building on our unique heritage and culture.  As an elected official, I am committed to preserving the heart and soul of the Dunwoody we’ve all known over these past years.  Today’s anniversary of our incorporation served as yet another reminder of that responsibility.”
