Fixing the Fountain


You undoubtedly have noticed when the fountain in Emory Village Plaza has not been operating. This was not due to faulty fountain mechanical;  it was a problem with the water source, which comes from an underground well located behind the fountain. Recently the Emory Village Alliance approved the removal and replacement of the well pump.

Thanks to DeKalb County for funding the cost of the pump replacement. We were able to decrease the electrical demand of the pump by reducing the horsepower needed to draw well water for irrigation and fountain make up water. Ken Waller of Waller Well & Pump Service, and his crew did an excellent job!

Mapping the Village Potential

It’s been 11 years since the DeKalb County commissioners unanimously approved the Emory Village Alliance’s zoning overlay and design guidelines, thus setting a new direction for Emory Village – one that would create a community commercial center that is economically viable and in the best long-term interests of Druid Hills residents, Emory Village and Emory University.

The map shows the Emory Village Regulating Plan from 2007 that identifies the boundary limits of the Emory Village Overlay District. It also shows historic structures and allowed building heights for new development or renovation projects.  One of the unique elements is the potential for a path along Peavine Creek.
