Druid Hills annexation survey and map of new city to be revealed

Leaders of the Druid Hills Civic Association are expecting results Monday of a neighborhood survey on annexation into Atlanta while leaders of an incorporation effort in north DeKalb County say they’ll release a map of their proposed boundaries on the same day.

A post on the Druid Hills organization’s website Thursday said there was “roughly equal support” for being annexed into Atlanta or remaining in unincorporated DeKalb County. The details of that vote will be reported to an association committee Monday, but the response to a third option is already clear, according to the post: residents “decisively” rejected being drawn into any new city, including one based around Lakeside High School and Briarcliff Road in north DeKalb.

A leader of that cityhood effort told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Sunday that the group will release a map of their proposed boundaries Monday. State lawmakers had given the advocates a Saturday deadline, but extended it.

DeKalb is awash in incorporation fervor, with movements also based around the Tucker community in north DeKalb and the Mall at Stonecrest in south DeKalb. Proponents of a City of South DeKalb will meet Monday at 6 p.m. at Clarkston library, 951 N. Indian Creek Drive, with more meetings Thursday and next week, according to their website.
