On Tuesday, Stockbridge City Council passed a resolution opposing the creation of a new city that would be called Eagles Landing. Stockbridge officials said there's little information about the city that justifies its formation.
The proposed city of Eagle’s Landing would have about 18,000 residents in a 12 square-mile area sandwiched between Stockbridge and McDonough, the county seat. It would be comprised of 13 subdivisions including Eagle’s Landing Country Club, a 740-home, 24-hole golf course enclave whose residents include numerous celebrities, athletes, physicians, attorneys and other well-to-do professionals. Piedmont Henry Hospital and Jodeco South, a proposed $300 million live-work-play complex would be within the city limits, organizers say.
