Dunwoody City Council Monday to discuss "Project Rennaisance" project

The first is whether to enter into a development agreement with John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, the city's selected bidder for the project. The second is whether the the city should buy the first three acres of a 19-acre property that used to house Emory Hospital. The land would be in the second phase of development for Wieland.
