State Rep. Rahn Mayo to host Greenhaven cityhood forum
Supporters of creating a new south DeKalb County city of Greenhaven will meet on Sept. 23 at an event hosted by state Rep. Rahn Mayo, D-Decatur.
The forum will take place at the Community Achievement Center located at 4522 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur, GA, 30034. It begins at 7 p.m.
The forum is being organized by Concerned Citizens for Cityhood of South DeKalb, Inc.
According to a press release, “The forum will present varying viewpoints on forming a city and there will be a panel discussion to address questions about the proposed city of Greenhaven.”
The Greenhaven cityhood question is not on the ballot Nov. 3. Unlike the proposed cities of Tucker and LaVista Hills, Greenhaven’s enabling legislation didn’t make it out of the General Assembly this year.
The proposed city would have a population of 300,000, making it Georgia’s second-largest city. It would include everything in DeKalb south of U.S. 78 up to I-285, excluding a proposed city of Stonecrest, and everything south of Memorial Drive on the other side of 285.
