Notes from the December Annexation Update/ CHCA Community Meeting, 12-15-2014

CHCA: Notes from the December Annexation Update - CHCA Community Meeting, 12-15-2014

Residents of Clairmont Heights met on Monday, 12-15-2014, to receive updated information about neighborhood options related to annexation issues and to ask questions of elected officials and school system personnel who attended. Our goal was to provide our neighbors with a snapshot of the current state of affairs before the GA legislative session opens in January, 2015.

The attached presentation [see attachments below] reviewed the current state of affairs, after which we heard from our CHCA liaisons to each of the annexation or city-creation efforts that could potentially include Clairmont Heights: LaVista Hills, Decatur, and Atlanta. We hope to provide a summary of the Q&A session in the very near future.

LaVista Hills: CHCA is NOT on this map, consistent with our survey wishes. LVH also excludes Medlock Park.

Decatur: The mayor and council declined to review any petitions (including the CHCA petition) and plans to move ahead with its map. The Decatur map excludes our residential neighborhood but includes important commercial properties near us ("Area A") that could reasonably impact service access to and from Druid Hills. CHCA continues to monitor this situation.

Atlanta: Almost all parts of the CHCA area are on the map created by Together In Atlanta. Mayor Kasim Reed has indicated support. The plan requires significant challenges related to the restructuring of our local schools.

The CHCA Board encourages all residents to share their opinions with us and with your local elected officials.

from: Odette Diaz Schuler:

Clairmont Heights Neighbors:

Inspired by Oak Grove and Leafmore’s efforts, we want to have an official Clairmont Heights Trash Guys Appreciation Days.

DeKalb County Schools releases annexation report

Decaturish:  One of the questions raised by a proposal to annex three DeKalb County Schools into the city of Atlanta is what it would do to the students at the other schools that feed into it.

The proposal from Together In Atlanta would call for a referendum on annexing the neighborhoods around Briar Vista Elementary, Fernbank Elementary and Druid Hills High schools into Atlanta. They are three of seven schools in the Druid Hills High cluster. The proposal also encompasses Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control.  [READ MORE]

"Decatur releases updated annexation plan"

Decaturish: "Decatur releases updated annexation plan"

The city of Decatur has just released its revised annexation master plan.

Preliminary estimates of the areas under consideration show they would deliver $5 million in tax revenue and providing services to these areas would cost $4.2 million in year five. In the first year, the annexed areas would generate $4.6 million in revenue and cost the $4 million in expenses.    [READ MORE]
