Will They Stay or Will They Go? (DeKalb's Plan for 285 and L'ville Highway and the Extended Stay Hotels)
Two and a half years ago, concerned neighbors began meeting about our issues with the motels at 285 & Lawrenceville Highway. We reached out to County leaders and have met with them a number of times.
Dekalb County sought a technical assistance grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission to study the area and make recommendations for next steps. It has been a very difficult process, and we have often felt discouraged, but we have persisted. We have not seen any of the recommendations for this grant, so we have no idea what to expect.
DeKalb County is ready to share their overall findings/recommendations with all of us. An Open House Meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, June 2nd, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Rehoboth Baptist Church.
It is tremendously important that we have a good turnout for this meeting. They need to see that we still have a high level of concern and engagement. Please share with your neighbors.
