Report: No Consensus on Cityhood in Sagamore Hills, North Briarcliff
Some residents say they don't want to be annexed into other cities, according to one resident.
When it comes to incorporation in communities like Sagamore Hills, North Briarcliff and Druid Hills, nothing's been decided yet.
And there isn't unified momentum to move things forward either, according to a report this week in The Champion Newspaper.
From the story:
Ray Johnson, who lives in unincorporated north Decatur off Druid Hills Road, said right now there doesn’t seem to be a real consensus among the residents about which direction to go into.
“They are very concerned about what may happen, future annexation, and they don’t seem to have any consensus at the moment,” Johnson said.
Johnson said one of the concerns residents have is that central DeKalb will be left out of the “cityhood movement.”
“The other concern is that they’ll be annexed into a city that they don’t want to be annexed into,” he said. “Johnson said there are concerns that Brookhaven may expand I think there is a plan that maybe next year or the year after they intend to annex across east of I-85.”
