DHCA Opposes Decatur Annexation Plan
The DHCA is opposed to any city annexation proposal that includes a significant amount of commercial property while excluding the surrounding residential area, thereby reducing the tax base needed to support that residential area. We are especially concerned that the proposed Decatur annexation includes the commercial intersection of North Decatur and Clairmont Roads. This area adjoins Druid Hills and is the primary neighborhood retail district for Druid Hills and the surrounding area. The Medlock Area Neighborhood Association (http://www.medlockpark.org/2015/01/petition-to-oppose-city-of-decaturs.html) and Clairmont Heights Civic Association also have registered opposition to Decatur’s annexation plan.
