Let us Vote for Greenhaven, It's our Right!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Please join Imagine Greenhaven Inc. along with hundreds of thousands of Dekalb county residents in urging the Georgia General Assembly to approve a referendum for the citizens of central and south DeKalb County to vote on the proposed City of Greenhaven.

We believe that residents in central and southern DeKalb should have the same right everyone else in DeKalb County has had – the opportunity to vote on whether they want a city. For 5 years, Greenhaven organizers have met all the requirements put forth by the Georgia State Legislature.  Residents in proposed Greenhaven are the only residents in DeKalb County that have not had the opportunity to vote even once on whether they want a city. All the other proposed cities in DeKalb that met the requirements were approved.  We believe the residents of central and south DeKalb should not be denied the right to vote!

The proposed city of Greenhaven represents 40% of the total population in DeKalb county, is commercially underdeveloped, has consistently lower housing values, and has fewer amenities when compared to its northern counterpart.  The residents of central and southern DeKalb deserve more localized attention to our community needs and expectations.

We sign this petition because we want the right to self-determination. We sign this petition because we want to be treated like everyone else in DeKalb County who was given the right to vote on cityhood.  We sign this petition because WE WANT TO BE ALLOWED TO VOTE on our future.

 

The Greenhaven Team is the organizer of this petition.  They support the right of citizens in central and southern DeKalb County to vote on cityhood.
