I disagree with all of the recent decisions to create new cities. To me, this is a racist decision and will only worsen the plight of those less wealthy in the counties surrounding these cities by forcing the burden of providing services on those that can least afford it.

Since I'm not a moneyed backer of the bill's sponsor, I'm voiceless in this process. It makes absolutely no sense that my house, which has been in our family for over fifty years and is in the heart of Chamblee, should be a part of this power play.

I do not oppose the formation of the new city. I strongly oppose the use of the name "Brookhaven."

Thanks for adding your voice.

The recent formation of the City of Dunwoody effectively forces a historically African American community to be placed under super majority white governance through annexation into a super majority white city Dunwoody, Chamblee, or now Brookhaven under HB636.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was put in place and extended under President George Bush another 25 years to prevent just such actions by the Georgia legislature.
HB 636 should not even be considered. And without a ban of city annexations in Dekalb county and a return of equivalent services to the minorities living in unincorporated north Dekalb, the City of Dunwoody should be dissolved.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I live in the DECA neighborhoods and this city development will take the business parcels typically associated with our neighborhoods. We need those businesses so that we can be viable when we attempt to join another city, such as Chamblee. I have no problem with the development of Brookhaven as a city, I just feel that it needs to be done carefully and with consideration to all of the surrounding communities that would be impacted.

Home values will plummet when students of Montgomery, that have historically attended the magnet school Chamblee in the City of Chamblee, will have to attend the crappy Cross Keys High School many miles away.

The estimates on park maintenance are not even close. Roswell was used in the study but Roswell does not have two large lakes. every 20 years they require dredging at a min cost of $4 million. The next dredge will be needed in 4 years for Murphy Candler.

The historically majority black community of Lynwood Park existed prior to the residential community called Brookhaven. Inclusion of the historically black Lynwood Park community in the majority white City of Brookhaven requires federal DOJ approval under the Voters Rights Act and Civil Rights Act.
