Emory University isn't taking a position on the cityhood and annexation debate in Druid Hills – yet.
"Emory is carefully studying all of the options and will closely examine
the data from the analysis currently underway to determine the impact
each option would have on the institution," said Betty Willis, senior
associate vice president for government and community affairs, in a Monday report published by the university. "We have
not taken a position yet on anything being proposed, and will share
information to keep folks informed as we learn more."
Druid Hills discussed last week the prospect of becoming part of a proposed City of Briarcliff, annexing into the City of Atlanta or staying put in unincorporated DeKalb County. The City of Briarcliff Initiative has included Druid Hills (and Emory) in its proposed city currently being studied by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. The city would stretch from Druid Hills north to Spaghetti Junction and east to I-285.
