Five residential properties along Woodcliff Drive and Briarcliff Road near Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Office Park in unincorporated DeKalb County are asking the Brookhaven City Council to annex their property.

The request from residents living in multi-family units and also two single-family homes meets the 60 percent threshold necessary for annexation, according to documents filed with the city.

Those wanting to be annexed by the city are residents of the Executive Park Apartments on Briarcliff Road, the Executive Park Condominiums on Executive Park Lane, the Executive Parkview Townhomes on Woodcliff Way and and two homes at 1705 and 1721 Woodcliff Drive NE. The annexation area is approximately 19 acres and includes some 200 people.

The five properties are adjacent to the southeastern most boundary of the city of Brookhaven. According to homeowner associations seeking the annexation, the request is “entirely citizen driven.” Property owners began looking into annexation by the city in 2014 and in August 2016 the residents voted and garnered the necessary 60 percent approval needed to request annexation. The request was officially made to the city last month.

The land is also near the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Office Park, which has stated its support for the annexation to the city.

The City Council voted in December 2014 to annex Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Executive Park to the city.

The City Council was presented the request at its Nov. 9 work session and a vote is expected in the near future.
