From the Lakeside City Alliance >>
The Lakeside and Briarcliff cityhood groups announced today their full merger — under the new name LaVista Hills. You may find the full media announcement and also the link to the City of LaVista Hills interactive map on our website here: lavistahillsyes.com The new map that Lakeside and Briarcliff have agreed to reflects considerable input from neighborhoods outside the perimeter and along the proposed southern boundaries, as well as businesses around Northlake and I-285.
Unfortunately a three-party agreement with the Tucker 2015 cityhood movement was not achieved: “We have made multiple offers to the Tucker cityhood movement and we’re still hopefull we can reach an agreement on the boundaries,” said Allen Venet (formerly of the City of Briarcliff Initiative). “After merging the vision of Lakeside and Briarcliff, and presenting neighborhood survey and petition preference input to Tucker, we are disappointed that the groups were unable to reach an agreement by the November 15th deadline.” In the coming weeks the combined group will continue work towards readying LaVista Hills for the 2015 legislative session.
