New Boundaries for City of Brookhaven to Exclude PDK

Final city limits for proposed Brookhaven cuts out reliever airport

There have been concerns about the proposed boundaries of the City of Brookhaven almost completely surrounding the existing City of Chamblee. 

To alleviate these concerns, the final city boundaries that will be proposed in the city charter will exclude the southern half of .  The northern half of PDK Airport is already in the City of Chamblee.  Click here to view the final city limits in a PDF document.

DeKalb County officials have convinced me that there is no real benefit to having PDK in the city limits.  The county and the FAA control the airport.  The City of Brookhaven would exercise no control over it.  Commercial properties located directly across Clairmont Road from the Ashford Park and Drew Valley neighborhoods are proposed to remain within the city limits. The exclusion of the airport has a negligible impact on the viability of the proposed city.

What about those who live across the street in Ashford park? I see you have removed the airport but now those who live on Jefferson street are no longer in the Brookhaven city proposal? Shouldn't all of ashford park be included?

It is funny to see responses saying that the Plaza Fiesta parcell is being considered to be the entrance to Ashford Park and Drew Valley considering that the rear of the property is facing these neighborhoods while the front of this shopping center is facing DECA. And when I last checked the USPS website, Plaza Fiesta's official mailing address is 4166 Buford Hwy 30345, NOT Clairmont Rd 30319.

I agree, It is funny to see the response from @William saying that the Plaza Fiesta parcell is being considered to be the entrance to Ashford Park and Drew Valley considering that the rear of the property is facing these neighborhoods while the front of this shopping center is facing DECA.

"It is funny to see responses saying that the Plaza Fiesta parcell is being considered to be the entrance to Ashford Park and Drew Valley... I don't think it funny at all for reasons far greater than any zip code.
