Dunwoody City Council to Discuss Georgetown Land Transfer

The council on Monday is expected to discuss a transfer of the "PVC-farm" property to the Urban Redevelopment Agency.

The Dunwoody City Council meets Monday to discuss a transfer of the city-owned 'PVC Farm' at 4000 Dunwoody Park Drive to the newly formed Urban Redevelopment Agency.

The land is projected to be the first phase of "Project Renaissance," a 35-acre redevelopment in the city's eastern gateway that the city has partnered with John Wieland Homes and Neighborhood to develop.

The transfer will include a refinancing of the PVC farm with PNC Bank, according to city documents.

The redevelopment project is envisioned to include both the PVC-farm property and a 19-acre property across North Shallowford Road that the city has an option to purchase.

The project is expected to include 106 homes built by John Wieland, about 12 acres in parks and a 2-mile multi-use trail.

Also on the agenda Monday is the hiring of a landscape-architect consultant for designing parks on the properties. The council is expected to be presented with the winning bidder to design the parks concept at a meeting later this month.

The council is also expected to hear about progress on the city's effort to put up new signs across various areas of the city. Signs for the city's eight parks are expected to be built in November for about $41,500.

The council will also hear a presentation on the 2011 comprehensive financial report and an ways to strengthen the city's auditing of its financial statements.

The regular meeting of the council starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
