On Monday, January 12, 2015, James Touchton, Director of Policy and Government Affairs for the Council, spoke on behalf of the development industry at the Dunwoody City Council meeting. The Council voiced its concern regarding the proposed amendments to the Dunwoody City Code Ordinances.
The Council has numerous specific concerns about the above referenced proposed code changes. Some inhibit investment in quality economic development, others create an onerous burden to property owners, and in several instances exceeds requirements by state law.
The Council for Quality Growth routinely works with local governments around the Metro Region on code changes such as these in a roundtable atmosphere, which produces results for local governments, the community and the industry. Touchton respectfully requested the opportunity to further the discussion on the proposed changes to work with Mayor and City Council, as well as staff to work with land owners and the development industry in order to address these concerns.
