Background & Neighborhood Affiliation

As you probably know, the unincorporated areas of north-central DeKalb County that include our neighborhoods are still the subject of discussion and debate about future governmental structures.
 
Depending on the exact location of a neighborhood, its possible futures might involve:
  • being part of a newly-formed city,
  • remaining an unincorporated part of DeKalb County,
  • annexing into an existing DeKalb city, or
  • annexing into the City of Atlanta.
The purpose of this survey is to gather input from citizens, residents and property-owners in unincorporated neighborhoods, where multiple future visions intersect. It was created by the Mason Mill Civic Association and the Citizens of Victoria Estates, and made available to other unincorporated neighborhoods in our area (which explains the breadth of options for some questions).
 
Our objective is to help provide the planners and decision makers with better information about the hopes, concerns and general preferences of the people who would be affected by these visions.
 
Your responses do not represent a commitment by you, nor do they create any obligation for your neighborhood leaders. This is information and advisory only.
 
Our pledges to you:
1. We will not share any information that could be identified with any individual respondent, to protect everyone's anonymity and encourage directness and candor in responses.
2. We will share all aggregate information and all comments publicly, without bias toward/against any of these futures.
 
This survey contains 18 questions, plus some space at the end for you to add comments of your own. It should take only 5-10 minutes to complete.
 
Thank you for taking the time to provide your input!
