Druid Hills may seek annexation by the city of Atlanta

Druid Hills, for those who don’t know, is an area of unincorporated Dekalb County just north of the easternmost parts of Atlanta and the westernmost parts of Decatur. It has a large tax base, healthy businesses, and one large university whose hospital is known for its treatment of ebola patients. And all of this may soon be part of Atlanta should some local citizens get their way…

From Jim Galloway,

It would be the most extensive expansion of Atlanta’s boundaries in decades, and could significantly change the city’s political dynamics. On the opposite side, loss of the area could be a tremendous loss of prestige and financial wherewithal for DeKalb.

Below please find the map of the proposed annexation. We’ll have a deeper dive on what this means tomorrow morning. Tease!
