Just as several metro cities have done recently, the City of Dunwoody has turned its eye to take a close look at affordable housing. At recent retreat of the Mayor and Council, the Council voted to create a task force to study workforce housing, but there was some strong opposition, including the Mayor.
While it has not been decided who will serve on this task force or when it will begin, what is known is that the task force will look at ideas that have come about in Sandy Springs, Brookhaven and other nearby municipalities.
The Mayor and other Council members expressed their concern that this proposal could lead to government public housing complexes. However, Councilmember Lynn Deutsch quickly pointed out that was not what this proposal was about. She stressed that it was to help police officers, teachers, firefighters, nurses, etc.
