On the Nov. 6 general election ballot, there will be a referendum about extending the city of Chamblee's borders south to Clairmont Road and I-85. An area steering committee is holding a meeting regarding the referendum at Dresden Elementary School, 7 p.m. on Sept. 11.
The steering committee includes members of the Dresden East Civic Association, but also people from other neighborhoods that are not part of the DECA, and the committee is independent of the DECA itself. Appling Heights, Tanglewood, The Variations, Frontier Woods, Surrey Place, Clairmont Terrace, Wakefield Forest, Whispering Hills and Hill Crest are represented on the steering committee.
The area that would be annexed is designated in dark green on the second page of the attached pdf.
City of Chamblee and DeKalb County officials will be in attendance at the meeting.
With the city of Brookhaven taking shape, the area that could be annexed will be surrounded by cities--Doraville, Chamblee, Brookhaven and I-85--and could be an "unincorporated island" if annexation fails, as this website about the annexation reports.
There is more information about the referendum at this Facebook page. Another informative meeting will be held in October, too.
