Legislators to meet cityhood groups

1/3/2014, 6 a.m.

Four DeKalb groups pursuing cityhood have been invited to attend a pre-session meeting with the DeKalb County Delegation on Jan. 9.

House and Senate Delegation members will hear from the Lakeside City Alliance, the City of Briarcliff Initiative, the City of Tucker Initiative and the Stonecrest City Alliance.

The 10 a.m. meeting takes place in Room 606 at the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, 18 Capitol Square S.W. in downtown Atlanta.

Rep. Howard Mosby, the delegation’s chairman, said the groups will present the results of their feasibility studies.

Lakeside, Briarcliff and Tucker released their studies, which show that their proposed cities are feasible.

Stonecrest Alliance President Jason Lary said this week that he had not yet received his study, but it is widely rumored that the study was returned and it found the proposed city of Stonecrest is not feasible.

Placeholders bills have been filed for all four proposed cities.
