The Lakeside City Alliance (LCA) is a non-profit organization comprised of neighbors in North DeKalb County who are studying whether the formation of a new city is both necessary and feasible to provide local control to our community. 

We have completed the following steps towards the LCA’s goals:

  1. We have provided information to the community about the proposed city and study;
  2. We have had a “placeholder” bill for the City of Lakeside introduced in the General Assembly;
  3. We have commissioned a feasibility study with the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute, which will determine the economic feasibility of the proposed city.
  4. The feasibility study was released November 20, 2013, showing that a city of Lakeside is feasible without an increase in property taxes.
