The city of Dunwoody is seeking input on its proposed updates to its comprehensive transportation plan via the web and comments can be made through Friday, July 7.

The mayor and City Council is September approved spending $68,000 to hire Pond & Co. to come up with the updated plan.

The city’s transportation plan was originally developed in 2009.  Since this time, efforts on several of the prioritized projects have begun and some have been completed. The primary purpose of the five-year update is to review and refresh the recommended project list and work program as well as explore enhancements to plan components such as pedestrian and bicycling facilities, according to city officials.
