Woodland Hills Cityhood Survey Results

Woodland Hills Cityhood
Survey Results

 

Survey Says: Yes, Woodland Hills Is Interested In Joining A City

According to a survey initiated by the Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association earlier this month, 79% of the participants responded that they would prefer to join a city, either be annexed by the City of Atlanta or a new Dekalb city.Annexation into the City of Atlanta was strongly favored, coming in at 67.5% of first place votes, followed by 18% for unincorporated Dekalb and the new Dekalb city with 14.5% of votes. Respondents cited that taxes and schools were the primary drivers in their decisions. Priorities ranked as follows:

  • Taxes 36.5%
  • Schools 35.9%
  • Infrastructure 14.7%
  • Police 10.9%
  • Zoning 1.9%

Many residents expressed concern that the senior exemptions in the city of Atlanta are far inferior to that of Dekalb County. While others cited that keeping the school community intact was of the utmost importance.

Moving forward, it is our goal to engage in discussion with the City of Atlanta and the surrounding communities to further explore all options.

WHNA Cityhood Discussions

 

Residents, 

We have a lot to discuss, and a lot to consider.  Please plan on coming to one of our meetings over the next few weeks. 

Our series of “small group discussion” meetings to discuss the Pro’s and Con’s of each option START TONIGHT. 

Prepare for the meetings by downloading the Atlanta Lakeside-Briarcliff City Comparison Chart.  Compare side by side options of Unincorporated Dekalb, City of Briarcliff/Lakeside, or City of Atlanta.

These meetings will be from 7-9 PM.  They are for Woodland Hills residents only.  Please be respectful that these residents have graciously invited us into their homes to discuss a very important topic. 

  • Oct 19th:  Tom and Wendi Combes’s House: Woodland Hills Dr
  • Oct 22nd:  Ellen Diss’s House:  Briar Vista Terrace
  • Oct 23rd:  Jeremy and Jen Mador’s House:  Arnold Ave
  • Oct 28th:  Brad and Hilary Grulke’s House: Country Ln NE

Refer to WHNA Listserv Emails for addresses & additional details.

We will also be hosting a large group meeting that will be open to all.

  • Oct 29th:  Location TBD Time:  7-9 PM.

Following these meetings, we will be sending a survey to all of our residents. 

There is a true urgency to this.  We will likely see neighborhoods making decisions about this byNovember 15th

The three options on the table are:  

  1. Remain a part of unincorporated DeKalb
  2. Become a part of the Lakeside/Briarcliff City Alliance
  3. Become a part of the city of Atlanta

Making this decision is not a simple one.  Woodland Hills isn’t the only neighborhood making this decision, and the decisions other neighborhoods make, will affect us. 

Over the next few weeks
Please, plan to attend one of these meetings.  Come to one of these meetings and get a understanding of what our decision will mean to our future.

 

Thank you,The Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association
