Delivering on the Promise of Brookhaven

We’ve accomplished a lot together to make Brookhaven better, including building world-class parks, increasing our greenspaces, paving most of our roads and ensuring efficient City services – all while reducing taxes.

HERE ARE A FEW HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR PROGRESS:

Increased city parks and greenspaces by 15%

Enhanced all city parks with new facilities & features

Paved more than 13 miles of roads

Improved stormwater infrastructure

Achieved safest city in DeKalb County ranking

Increased our tree canopy by 1.9%

Made road improvements at key intersections

Installed more than 13,900 feet of sidewalks

Kept lowest millage rate in DeKalb County

Let’s build on our successes and continue addressing our challenges to fully realize Brookhaven’s vision as a haven of greenspaces nestled inside our urban landscape, a city of thought leaders, and a community with character.

ON NOVEMBER 5TH, I ASK FOR YOUR VOTE TO CONTINUE WORKING TOGETHER TO:

Increase greenspace

Improve parks

Achieve balanced growth

Maintain our Triple-A bond rating

Realize a walkable, bike-able community

Perfect weather at the Brookhaven Arts Festival today. Our son, Jack, donated one of his old bikes to Free Bikes 4 Kidz through the Brookhaven Bike Alliance. It was great to see so many friends and neighbors enjoying the festival today. #BrookhavenGA #ThisIsOurHome ... See MoreSee Less
