City of Brookhaven adds more acreage to Greenspace inventory
Brookhaven, GA, Oct. 10, 2017 – The City of Brookhaven’s greenspace inventory is now a bit larger.
At the Oct. 10 regular business meeting, the Brookhaven City Council unanimously approved the purchase of 2.7 acres of land at 1623 North Druid Hills Road, near Cross Keys High School. The purchase price for the parcels was $1.1 million.
“This acquisition gets us even closer to our goal of eight acres of greenspace per 1,000 residents, as outlined in our Master Plan,” said District 4 City Council Member Joe Gebbia. “Now that we have ownership of the property our Parks Director can begin the process of developing a specific parks plan with the help from the community. Our goal is to maximize the park's value to our residents. It's a great day for District 4 and I want to express my sincerest thanks to Georgia Power for working with Brookhaven and enabling us to preserve this natural resource for the benefit of our residents."

On the surface there can’t be two more polar opposites than incumbent Joe Gebbia and Dale Boone, squaring off for Brookhaven city council, District 4.
Gebbia was first elected as one of the city’s original council members in 2012, then re-elected to a full four-year term in 2013. According to his website he runs Health Matters Inc., an online natural goods wholesale business, the result of a decision to lead a healthier lifestyle 15 years ago.
Boone on the other hand, who ran for mayor last year and lost, once set a world record for eating 10 hot dogs in two minutes, 55 seconds.
Indeed, according to his Wikipedia entry, he holds a total 52 world records in competitive eating, including the consumption of 28 reindeer sausages in 12 minutes and 274 Russian dumplings in six minutes.
The entry adds, however, that outside of competitions, Boone reportedly adheres to a ‘strict diet’.
In the only other Brookhaven race, incumbent John Park is unopposed for city council, District 2. A graduate of Decatur High and Emory University, Park was initially elected in November 2014.
Brookhaven, GA, Aug 15, 2017 – On Aug 1 the Brookhaven Public Works Department received a $75,000 LMIG safety grant from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) on behalf of the City.
The Public Works Department is actively organizing and scheduling the LMIG grant projects, which should be completed by the end of 2017. Specific projects funded by the 2017 LMIG safety grant and City funds are provided in the table below.
Grant allocations are determined by a formula that considers the linear mileage of centerline road in a given jurisdiction as well as that area’s total population and compares them to the states total population and centerline miles. In Brookhaven’s case this resulted in a grant of $75,000, which represents 70 percent of the total project cost.
“The LMIG program provides tremendous opportunity for the City to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety throughout the City as well as allowing us to partner with the state and achieve a common goal, to enhance the efficiency and efficacy of our transportation infrastructure,” said Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst.
