City Council Meets Monday

Agenda includes a survey of the city's trees, an update on an ongoing rewrite to city zoning codes and other topics. The Council has also scheduled an executive session meeting.

The City Council will begin its deliberations Monday on a host of issues, but start behind closed doors for an executive session at 6 p.m.

The council agenda for the executive session lists, as is typical, that it will meet behind closed doors "for the purposes of legal, real estate, and personnel discussions" without any specifics.

The regular meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. and includes an update from Steve Dush, Dunwoody community development director, on an ongoing overhaul of the city's zoning code.

The zoning code rewrite has been the subject of several meetings around the community in the last several months.

Howard Koontz, the city's arborist, will also update the city on a tree inventory that is planned to become a part of the city's comprehensive plan. The inventory notes tree stands, forested areas and invasive species in the city, according to the report.

There will also be a discussion of park rental fees, which are recommended to remain at $100 for events common to parks, such as family reunions.

The parks' department will also present a report on the city's involvement in a large scale-music festival at a park like Brook Run Park. The recommendation is to keep those type events in the hands of nonprofit organizations and other community organizations without direct city involvement.

The city council is also set to review its contracts with community partners that have ties to the city, such as the Dunwoody Nature Center and Stage Door Players.
