On Monday, Oct. 14, Diana Wheeler, the City of Peachtree Corners Community Development Director, will be our guest, to speak and present information related to the Georgia Redevelopment Powers Act O.C.G.A. 36-44-1 that will be on the November ballot for the Citizens of Peachtree Corners to consider.
The meeting will be held from 7:30 - 9 p.m. at Christ the King Church, 5575 Peachtree Parkway, in the Fellowship Hall.
We are also very fortunate to have Ms. Sharon Gay with McKenna, Long & Aldridge, LLP join us. Ms. Gay is recognized as a key player in pioneering the use of tax allocation district financing in Georgia. She has worked with local governments and developers throughout the state to create tax allocation districts to provide funds for community redevelopment.
During the 2008 session of the Georgia General Assembly, she coordinated the lobbying effort to obtain passage of a constitutional amendment to restore the ability of local school districts to participate in tax allocation districts. That amendment was approved by Georgia voters in the November 2008 election.
After the Powerpoint presentation, a Question and Answer session will follow to discuss this topic.
