Name that city!

The communities of Lakeside and Briarcliff are teaming up to form one big city, but what should it be called?

Briarlake? Lavista? Lavista Hills? Briarton? Briar Vista?

Those are the choices in an online survey of residents in the north-central area of DeKalb County that could be incorporated next year.

Lakeside and Briarcliff have been working together since this summer after their divided efforts earlier this year led to neither community winning cityhood.

This time, they’re collaborating on a map that could be presented to the Georgia Legislature for consideration in January.
