Senators Sally Harrell and Elena Parent introduced SB 507 on March 12, 2020 to incorporate the city of Vista Grove. Vista Grove Initiative (VGI) is thankful for their leadership in recognizing that there is interest in incorporation throughout our community and that recent annexations by the cities of Brookhaven and Tucker make the conversation more pressing. These legislators also believe Vista Grove's plan to partner with DeKalb Co. for the provision of police services is a critical show of cooperation with the county.
The city borders of SB 507 are different from the original borders proposed by VGI. The sponsoring legislators, with support from Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver and input from colleagues, deliberated exhaustively for some time to devise a map as closely resembling the VGI proposal as possible, while also considering input they have received from constituents, our neighbors and civic leaders. Recognizing that no border will satisfy all, they took the information available to them, collaborated on borders, and presented VGI with a revised map. That map will be circulated once the bill is uploaded to the legislative site.
