Dunwoody seeking community input on Perimeter Center improvements

City of Dunwoody officials will host the first “Open House for Edge City 2.0,” March 24 from 6 – 8 p.m. at 400 Perimeter Center Terrace; city officials said all who work and live in Dunwoody are invited.

Edge City is a joint effort between Dunwoody officials and the Perimeter Community Improvement District. City officials said the project will focus on bringing new life to Perimeter Center with greenspace, mobility enhancements, and similar features. The website states the plan will also focus on transportation improvements and will compare case studies to other perimeter cities. Additional information about the project and about future events is available at: www.dunwoodyedge.com.

Dunwoody officials said the project involves evaluating and understanding Perimeter Center’s current land use, development patterns, transportation network, surrounding cultural and natural resources, demographics, economics, and the needs and wishes of the community.

A news release states the Edge City project is being carried out in coordination with a consultant team led by Pond & Company. At the end of researching and developing multiple visions for the future of the Perimeter Market, Pond & Company will provide city officials and their partners with an roadmap for the next 20 years.

City officials said the open house is a drop-in event that is part of a community-wide visioning project that will focus on the future of Dunwoody’s Perimeter Center.

“Public engagement is a critical part of this planning process,” said Dunwoody Economic Development Director Michael Starling. “We want everyone to play a role in creating a blueprint to manage and guide growth in Perimeter Center.”

According to Edge City’s website, the project will define the preferred future of the area based on collective input from elected officials, Dekalb board members of Perimeter Community Improvement District, major property owners, governmental partners, and other community members.
