The Georgia House of Representatives passed a measure Wednesday that would allow residents to vote on creating the city of LaVista Hills, according to the AJC. The House also approved Tucker’s bid for cityhood.

Both pieces of legislation will now go to the Senate for further consideration. If approved, voters would decide on whether to incorporate the cities during a November election.

  1. But I see that the map that went through the House is not the map that LHY is showing around.

    I don’t know how they get away all the time with not telling the truth about what they’re doing. This has been the strategy ever since the beginning of Lakeside city. Transparent, my rear!

    Those folks deserve the trash can.

    1. I don’t really know. There was a lot of discussion at the Hearing about correcting the map, and then an amendment. That was the only thing that was discussed at the hearing. The approval was preordained, but I don’t have any idea what the change was.

      I was told that the approved map only went south to N Druid Hills, and included the CHOA property that was annexed to Brookhaven some time ago.

      I’m really curious.
