Brookhaven Yes, an organization that promotes creation of a city of Brookhaven, plans to hold a public meeting on July 19 at Montgomery Elementary School to discuss the proposal.

Representatives of the cities of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Johns Creek will take part in the presentation to discuss the benefits of a city and city operations and to answer questions from the audience, Brookhaven Yes said.

The meeting beings at 7 p.m. at the school, located at 3995 Ashford-Dunwoody Road.

A similar meeting was held June 28 at Cross Keys High School.

Brookhaven voters will decide July 31 whether to create a new city in an area of north DeKalb County bounded by Chamblee, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Atlanta, the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport and a portion of I-85.
