AJC asks for opinions on City of Dunwoody

AJC, Northside, 11/19/06

Tell us what you think: Should Dunwoody incorporate?

From the story:
Dunwoody residents alone should not get to decide how many police officers patrol their streets or how properties in the community get developed. In fact, no local community in DeKalb should be able to break away from County Commission control and make such decisions.

That's the official position adopted by the Board of Commissioners on Tuesday ("DeKalb board opposes cityhood moves," AJC Metro, Nov. 15, reporter D.L. Bennett).

The community of about 40,000 has debated incorporation for about a year, following the lead of Fulton's Sandy Springs, Milton and Johns Creek.

State Sen. Dan Weber (R-Dunwoody) said he wasn't surprised by the commission's vote, saying the board fears losing control.

Weber wants to have a measure before Dunwoody voters in June.

Should Dunwoody incorporate? If so, why? If not, why? We've asked the question in the past, but opinions seem to go back and forth on the issue.
