2/26/14 – BREAKING NEWS: SB 270, sponsored by Senator Fran Millar, passed in Senate today.
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:
- We have provided information to the community about the proposed city and study;
- We have had a “placeholder” bill for the City of Lakeside introduced in the General Assembly;
- 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.
- The feasibility study was released November 20, 2013, showing that a city of Lakeside is feasible without an increase in property taxes.
- We will present our cityhood effort – SB270 – to the Georgia General Assembly in January 2014 for consideration.
- The Senate has passed SB270.
- The House will take up SB 270 this week.
- Upon a positive vote by the General Assembly, the residents within the proposed city boundaries will vote for cityhood in May 2014.
