The Druid Hills Civic Association would like to thank neighborhood residents for taking the time to complete its survey regarding annexation and cityhood. There was a high overall response rate which indicates the seriousness with which we all view this issue. The DHCA also thanks respondents for their appreciative comments.
The survey shows significantly greater and roughly equal support for the options of annexation to the City of Atlanta and remaining in unincorporated DeKalb County, with respondents decisively rejecting the option of being included in any new city. Druid Hills residents cited schools, taxes, services, preserving the historic district, and remaining in the same jurisdiction as Emory University as the main factors in their choices.
Further analysis is needed and will be forthcoming as soon as possible.
Thank you for your participation.
