Cityhood / Annexation Info Sessions – 1st up – Atlanta

Happy New Year!  Hope all enjoyed a safe and fun holiday season.  As most of you probably know, the subcommittee of the Georgia House Governmental Affairs committee did finalize the border between the proposed cities of LaVista Hills and Tucker.  Both sides got some of what they wanted, but many think it is fair to say that both sides were disappointed.  The committee did NOT draw a final line between the proposed area of annexation for the city of Atlanta and the proposed city of LaVista Hills.  This task is being left up to the respective organizers to “work it out.”  As a reminder, LaVista Park is currently included in BOTH maps.

LaVista Park is joining with nearby neighborhood associations in Merry Hills and North Druid Hills (and perhaps others) to host a series of meetings with representatives of the competing cities and proposed cities.  The first meeting is with representatives of Together in Atlanta, the group spearheading the annexation into Atlanta of the attendance zones of Brair Vista and Fernbank Elementary schools.  (An area which includes Emory University and North Druid Hills High School).  A meeting with the LaVista Hills organizers will be scheduled and announced in the next few days. Subsequently, meetings will hopefully be announced with Brookhaven and DeKalb County.

The meeting with the Atlanta group will be on Wednesday, January 7, 7:30 PM at Young Israel, 2056 LaVista Road (at Houston Mill).

If you want to know more about what changes might occur if LaVista Park were to be annexed into Atlanta, please plan to attend this meeting.

For the LVPCA Board,

Steve Richards, President

P.S.  It is looking like a meeting with LaVista Hills will be on January 11.  A Confirmation will be posted to this site in the next few days.
