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."
