Comprehensive Land Use Plan

The Comprehensive Land Use Plan is the preeminent legal document guiding future development in Dunwoody. The Comprehensive Land Use Plan provides the city with a roadmap on long-range policy direction for land use, transportation, economic development, housing, public facilities, inter-governmental agreements along with its natural and cultural resources.

The Comprehensive Plan articulates the community vision for the 20-year planning period and provides policy that guides land-use decision-making and future growth in a community.  


Throughout the creation of the Comprehensive Plan, the city designated several character areas with specific land use and other character features. Each of the character areas is discussed in the Comprehensive Plan.  The detailed reports and supplemental data from the Community Assessment are included in the Technical Addendum.


Following the finalization of the Comprehensive Plan, the City embarked on a Master Planning process for the Dunwoody Village and Georgetown.
