Decatur annexation issues lack sponsor

Decatur City Manager Peggy Merriss said that potential annexation of two heavily commercial areas just outside city limits has apparently died quietly in the legislature. The city commission voted in December to pursue annexation of the Clairemont Avenue/North Decatur Road sector and the Suburban Plaza area off Church Street. But Merriss said the plan “never got a sponsor in the General Assembly.” She added that these areas have attracted multiple annexation proposals since the 1950s. BILL BANKS FOR THE AJC
