Doraville Annexation Fails

Residents in the Cherokee Hills, Oakcliff Estates and Sequoyah Woods subdivisions overwhelmingly rejected a referendum to become part of Doraville.  Seventy-nine percent opposed the second annexation vote  – which would have boosted Doraville’s population by about 65 percent to 17,000 residents.

The November annexation vote failed by just 34 votes, but was marred by ballot problems, prompting the second vote.
