Dunwoody signals support for music hall

In a split vote, Dunwoody City Council recently agreed to provide moral support for relocating the state’s Music Hall of Fame to the city.

Councilman Danny Ross has led the city’s push to land the music hall, traveling to its current home in Macon and rounding up supporters.

The council vote does not offer any money to attract the museum. Councilmembers John Heneghan and Denis Shortal voted against the resolution, in part because of concerns about financing down the road.

The state cut its funding earlier this year, leading the hall’s authority to shop for a new home. In addition to Dunwoody and another site in Macon, Albany, Athens Dahlonega, and Woodstock have expressed an interest in the museum.
