Cityhood

Cityhood is an ongoing issue impacting LaVista Park.  The LVPCA board has been actively following the developments and speaking to our elected officials and the people involved in new cities and annexation efforts.

Cityhood Town Halls

Come join us at one of the Town Halls listed for a discussion with your neighbors on our cityhood/annexation initiative. A number of factors have changed since the LaVista Hills vote in 2015 that could change how you view this situation. Be sure you have all the facts to make an informed decision.

Cityhood Comparison Information

We have provided some information on key comparisons for you to review below. The four points that we thought most important are:

  1. Police response times are significantly faster in Brookhaven. 
  2. The lowest property tax rate is Brookhaven (a new city is unknown). 
  3. The schools would change with a move to Atlanta but stay the same with a new city or Brookhaven. 
  4. The senior exemption on taxes is greatly reduced in Atlanta but remains almost the same in Brookhaven. Look at the comparison table document or reach out to President@lavistapark.org for specific questions.

No matter what option might eventually be chosen, people could still use Atlanta as their mailing address as postal codes do not align with city boundaries.
