Behold Brookhaven, Atlanta's Newest City

T-SPLOST sucked much of the air out of the overall political debate leading up to yesterday's election. But Dekalb County had a second highly-contentious issue on the ballot yesterday- a "Yes" or "No" vote on Brookhaven becoming its own city. "Yes" prevailed, and yet another largely affluent north side Atlanta community will be going off on its own. For those casually observing from the sidelines, the battle probably seemed familiar, given recurrent themes in the incorporation of Sandy Springs, Dunwoody and Johns Creek in recent years. For those just coming to the issue, the Brookhaven Patch has been all over the story from the beginning, their coverage is compiled here. [AJC | Brookhaven Patch]
