City of Briarcliff: feasibility study discussion [Dec 19]

from COBI:
The City of Briarcliff Initiative Public Meeting to Discuss City Feasibility Study Results

The City of Briarcliff Initiative has scheduled a public meeting to review the results of the Carl Vinson Institute  city feasibility studies on Thursday, December 19, 2013, 7:00 pm at Briarcliff United Methodist Church (4105 Briarcliff Rd. NE, Atlanta GA at the Shallowford Rd. intersection).  
The studies, conducted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia have confirmed that Briarcliff  would have an $8 million annual surplus under current conditions — making it the most financially feasible city plan proposed for Central DeKalb County. 
In an earlier interview, Allen Venet, the President of the City of Briarcliff Initiative reported that "An independent study has confirmed what so many in central DeKalb already knew -- that Briarcliff is positioned to be the most sensible city for central DeKalb. Our proposed city has a strong blend of residential, commercial and industrial areas. Our map is smart and does not abandon neighborhoods. We believe the members of this community deserve the chance to vote on Briarcliff as their city."
