The Dunwoody City Council revisited an old debate with a discussion about installing a crosswalk at Tilly Mill Road and Stonington Drive.

At the council’s April 9 meeting, Dunwoody Public Works Director Michael Smith said the crosswalk would cost about $30,000 to build.

Residents of the Dunwoody North subdivision first requested that the city install a crosswalk in the area about a year ago. But council members have been divided about building the crosswalk because the intersection is just over the city’s border with Doraville.

Councilman Terry Nall said he thinks funding for the project should be split between Dunwoody and the city of Doraville or DeKalb County.

“I just think there’s a can of worms we get into if we spend taxpayer dollars outside the city of Dunwoody,” Nall said.

But Councilman Doug Thompson said the street’s position on the city border makes it a unique situation.

“This is clearly a project that helps our citizens,” he said.

Mayor Mike Davis said he would speak with the mayor of Doraville in an effort to share the cost of the project.
