Georgia Senate Rules Committee

Contact the Georgia Senate Today!

Martha Pacini and Carl Lange – February 6, 2014
Politics are moving very rapidly and yesterday’s inclusion of Victoria Estates and surrounding neighborhoods into the proposed Lakeside City boundaries came as a surprise to opponents. Senate Bill 270 is being reviewed now by the Georgia Senate Rules Committee before being sent to the Senate floor for a vote. COVE has remained engaged at the Capitol and the addition of Victoria Estates and surrounding neighborhoods was made with no transparency including any communication to our neighborhood by the Lakeside Initiative. If you wish to voice your opinion, it is imperative that you contact the committee members this morning!

Proposed City of Lakeside Includes Victoria Estates

Pat Killingsworth and Erika Birg – February 6, 2014

Senate Bill 270, for the proposed City of Lakeside, was passed by the State and Local Government Committee (SLGO) yesterday by a narrow margin. The bill was not on the published committee agenda, and it was only yesterday morning that opponents of the bill learned that it would be considered. The approved map shows Victoria Estates and surrounding areas being included in Lakeside. Based on yesterday’s activities, we expect it to be passed through the Rules Committee and sent to the Senate floor for a vote in short order. COVE continues to monitor activities closely for any updates, including any explanation as to the last minute inclusion of Victoria Estates in the proposed city boundaries.
