I say "this" Council, but then again, maybe not. This "can" could get kicked down the same "PP" and end up being a nice
What's the new Council to do? I know! Invoke a 2 week quiet period! Nah, that's already been done and done so well it appears to have been extended for a month, as most folks I know haven't heard anything from the
I predict that soon lawns all over this fine City will be sprouting signs proclaiming, "Save Hallowed Intersections & Trees" (SH!T)! Well, they'll have to come up with some other catchy acronym cause I've just copyrighted this one!
On Council's agenda Monday night are two transportation items, one of which is quickly being picked up on most folks radar - the proposed intersection expansion on Mt. Vernon Rd at Womack / Manhasset Rd.
Council - pay attention to what the engineers and traffic studies (you know that science and math stuff) tell you. Focus on what this community needs now, in 10 years from now, and longer. Or, you can do what your gut tells you to do, right?! It's safe to kick that can down the "PP" just like the Womack / Vermack intersection non-decision.
I would hate to see this important process be impacted by personal political concerns for election / re-election. But I wasn't born yesterday and can see some on council are too concerned that the election is only 10 weeks away, and the others just 2 short years away. And I know they don't want to have Save Hallowed Intersections & Trees all over them! So, pay close attention to how each council member maneuvers down this tricky path. Will it be fight for what they truly believe is right for the community, or flight by kicking the can further down the road.
So, what happens if nothing is done? Well, if nothing is done I guarantee we'll end up with Save Hallowed Intersections & Trees all over all of us. Didn't we become a City because we felt our interests weren't being addressed in Decatur? Now we have the power and the local focus to do the right thing for the 12 square miles that is Dunwoody. So, just do it!
I'm Just Sayin' - Dunwoody City Council, follow the science and the math and you'll find the answer key!
