The Concerned Citizens for Cityhood of South DeKalb Inc. (CCCSD) is launching a new push to establish Greenhaven as a city under Dr. Kathryn Rice, who has returned to chair the organization.
Rice founded CCCSD in 2014 to propose and gain approval for a new city in South DeKalb: Greenhaven. Forming an organization is one of the informal requirements of the Georgia State House of Representatives.
Rice left CCCSD in May 2016 to help start the Greenhaven Business Alliance Inc. (GBA), an organization formed to promote the economic development potential of South DeKalb through research, business attraction and investment, and the development of public-private partnerships.
“I am passionate about economic development. But when I saw that after four years of promoting Greenhaven and three years of meeting all the requirements for having a bill in the Georgia Assembly, that we were still being denied the right to a vote by the people, I felt the need to come back to CCCSD to help get Greenhaven approved,” said Rice.
Rice said CCCSD will begin promoting Greenhaven through public meetings, articles and signs. For more information or to receive updates, visit www.Greenhaven-GA.org.
