Brookhaven Yes, an organization promoting creation of a new city of Brookhaven, has announced plans to hold a “town hall” meeting on June 28 to discuss the operation of the proposed new city.

Representatives of the cities of Decatur, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Johns Creek will attend to answer questions on city operations, Brookhaven Yes said in an announcement June 21.

“Residents within the proposed city of Brookhaven will have opportunities to have their questions answered regarding how the new city will operate, address the major issues that have been discussed (taxes, revenue, expenses,  police, local government) and gain a better understanding of the benefits of cityhood,” the organization said in the announcement.

The meeting is planned for June 28 at Cross Keys High School, 1626 Druid Hills Road. It is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

Brookhaven residents are to vote July 31 on whether to start the proposed new city in the area of DeKalb County bordered roughly by the cities of Chamblee, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Atlanta and portions of I-85 and DeKalb-Peachtree Airport.
