I bet Simpson folks are squirming. Apts would totally mess up their demographics and ruin their white middle class rosters . Why is it that Peachtree is overcrowded with almost 1700 kids and trailers and Simpson is under capacity?

The property is zoned for Simpson.

Because redistricting doesn't happen overnight.

They voted to buy it. Get out your check books. Let's say there are 22,000 voters and 11,000 households. To buy the said property for $10-12 million and build a city hall for say $30-40 million how much is each household responsible?
