Briarside? Lakecliff? And What About Tucker? | WABE 90.1 FM

The proponents for two proposed new cities in DeKalb County are joining forces. Advocates for potential cities called Briarcliff and Lakeside have agreed to try to agree on a map for a single city.

As Mary Kay Woodworth, head of the group now called “Lakeside-YES,” put it: “We’re dating. We’re not engaged” We’re not married. But we’re getting along well.”

They are getting along well enough to agree central DeKalb can accommodate two new cities but likely not three. According to Briarcliff proponent Allen Venet, “There just is not enough tax base to do that very easily. He added, “You could potentially create one mega-city, but that would I think would be difficult to govern. So in between those two, clearly you can create two cities, and so that is the goal I think that everybody has. The question is exactly where exactly should the lines be.”
