Dunwoody's bond referendum gives voters the power to decide if the City of Dunwoody can issue bonds to invest in major City projects and improvements. Bond financing would be used for capital projects to build or improve physical assets like facilities and infrastructure that will be used by our community for many years into the future.

Such approval shall also constitute an approval of the increase in the City’s current millage cap of 3.04 only to the extent necessary to repay the bonds."

PROPERTY TAX IMPACTS

The bonds would be paid off over 20 years. Based on preliminary 2023 digest numbers and conservative market rates, the typical home in Dunwoody ($500,000 value frozen at $400,000), would pay an extra $157.36 a year at a rate of 1.049 mills if the bond is approved. This would represent 2.3% of the total tax bill.
