Decatur Considers Annexing Suburban Plaza & Emory Commons

As reported on the website and in the AJC, the city of Decatur will soon take up a discussion of whether or not to annex land between Church Street and Scott Boulevard, down to North Decatur Road. They will also be looking at annexing the rest of the area between Scott Boulevard and North Decatur, bounded by Clairmont Rd and Landover Dr. This will remove valuable commercial property from the DeKalb County tax roll and also remove DeKalb County from having any oversight over Selig's proposed redevelopment of Suburban Plaza into a mixed-used project.
