Dunwoody is generally considered to be the northern tip of DeKalb County, bounded by the Fulton County line on the north and west, Interstate 285 on the south, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard on the southeast, and Gwinnett County on the northeast. Officially, the CDP extends only to the county line in the north; however, many residents of the narrow panhandle of Sandy Springs consider themselves a part of Dunwoody. Although it claimed its right to self-determination in its own political battle to incorporate, once Sandy Springs became a city in late 2005, it removed street sign toppers in the panhandle area that had "Dunwoody" on them. This narrow strip was originally part of DeKalb, but was then ceded to Milton, which later merged into Fulton.

Movement for incorporation

In early 2006, a study was conducted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government of the University of Georgia, to determine how feasible it would be to incorporate Dunwoody as a city. Critics claim that incorporation of Dunwoody, as in the incorporation of Sandy Springs in 2005, would take away a great deal of tax revenue from the rest of the county, leading to shortages of services, tax increases, or both for everyone else in the county, as has happened in Fulton. Citizens for Dunwoody, Inc. is the non-profit advocacy group begun by Senator Dan Weber to promote the effort. The CVI study can be read on their website.

The bill for incorporation was withdrawn from the Georgia General Assembly in 2006 for further study, but was presented again in early 2007, where it passed only the lower house. In 2008, the bill of incorporation was re-introduced by Senator Weber, and due to increased pressure, passed in the senate as well as the house.
