On Tuesday, February 10th, PAHL hosted a community meeting to help South DeKalb residents become informed on the cityhood process and impacts. Cityhood in South DeKalb, 101 brought State Representative Karla Drenner and Senator Elena Parent in front of about 90 residents to deliver some straightforward information on cityhood. Residents are gathering information so that they can make informed choices and respond intelligently to Greenhaven and other city proposals and annexations.
Residents gave a nearly unanimous “YES” when asked if they wanted to follow up the meeting with a panel discussion on cityhood in March. Plans for the panel discussion (Cityhood in South DeKalb, 201) are underway. Panel invitees include representatives from DeKalb Strong and Concerned Citizens for Cityhood South DeKalb (CCCSD).
