News Nearby: Another DeKalb Community To Study Cityhood

The Lakeside City Alliance will study the feasibility of a city focused on the high school's attendance zone.

Will the Lakeside High School area and its 50,000 residents form a new city?

The newly formed Lakeside City Alliance wants to study the question. 

The nonprofit, chaired by Northlake-area resident Mary Kay Woodworth, will hold its first public meeting at Lakeside High on Feb. 13. It released a statement Wednesday that said the study area would "be bounded roughly by Interstate 85 to the west, Clairmont Road to the south, Chamblee-Tucker Road to the east and Pleasantdale Road to the north."

The Alliance wants area residents to have more "local control of police services, parks and zoning.”

The group plans a series of public meetings to introduce the map of its proposed boundaries.

To become a city, the state legislature would need to approve the idea and then residents would have to vote in favor of it.
