Avondale Estates calls special work session to discuss annexation, stormwater

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt January 28, 2016

The Avondale Estates City Commission has called a special work session to discuss annexation and storm water issues.

A copy of the agenda can be found here. The Feb. 1 meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at Avondale Estates City Hall, located at 21 N Avondale Rd.

There is currently not an information packet attached to the agenda. The city recently received the results of a feasibility study about annexation.

Currently the city is considering a map includes commercial properties in the Rio Circle area, and residential areas along Rockbridge Road, as well as the former Avondale High School and the American Legion. The proposed annexation would nearly double the city’s current population, adding about 2,500 residents.

The Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia used two methods to study the viability of two proposed annexation areas. The estimates provided by CVI shows that annexation area No. 1 would generate between $260,000 and $300,000 in revenue over expenditures. Study area No. 2 would generate between $822,000 and $842,000 in revenue over expenditures.
