My point remains the same... what do "we" in this area have in comparison? Here is a description from the Better Homes and Gardens real estate website about Sandy Springs: "Sandy Springs is home to over 8,000 business and the headquarters of more Fortune 500 companies than anywhere in the State including Atlanta. "The city's largest business district is the Roswell Road corridor and Perimeter Center (although Perimeter Mall itself lies in adjacent DeKalb County)."

8,000 businesses? HQ to more Fortune 100s than the city of Atlanta or anywhere else in the state? Sure, sounds great to be Sandy Springs, but we're not. So, how does Briarcliff (or Lakeside) propose to mimic them if the money simply isn't there?

Cheryl, sales tax does not go to the city. It goes to the county.

FYI, is Sandy Springs owns the portion of the Perimeter Center surrounding the mall and Dunwoody owns the mall, then that is even more reason for Tucker to maintain claims to our property in the 30084 zip code. It's apparently more valuable!

Fran, commercial property taxes are based on the value of the property and that is based on how much revenue it generates.
