I live in Dekalb, and have had no issues dealing with the County offices here.

Roxboro Road is great. Any time you miss the slower pace of Lawrenceville, just head on over to Lenox Park and you'll feel fine.

Believe me, there's not much to not like about that area, except that you won't be able to buy as big of a house.

Where exactly are you living? Inside Lenox Park, the Park at East Paces, or one of those near Peachtree?

I miss that area. The only reason I moved to the suburbs was because I couldn't afford anything reasonable in that area. If I could afford a house in Lenox Park, it would be a no brainer for me.
I'm closer to Peachtree than Lenox Park.

Thanks so much for all the well wishes, they are greatly appreciated!

Ah, that's my neighborhood (I'm on the Peachtree side.) If you have noticed a large amount of sirens in the area, don't be surprised, but you will have to get used to it. There are a lot of assisted living homes and elderly condos near the Dekalb border. I'm not saying they are the reason, but they always seem to be going in that direction from the fire house under Phipps. On a usual day expect to hear a siren at least 5 times from dusk til dawn. On a bad day, I've heard it at least 2 dozen times.

Hopefully you're in the Fulton side of Lenox Park. If you're in Dekalb, you've got a whole different story.

Still, you're not going to pick a place to live based on having to get a drivers license or car tag every few years!
Agreed!

I usually drive to the office in north point whenever I have to renew my car registration. I attempted the downtown location one time... never again.

To the OP, congrats! You picked a great location.

To me that's the real advantage of living intown -- you have a tremendous array of options within a very short distance. For instance, if I'm understanding where you are, there are about three Krogers, two Publix's, a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Fresh Market and umpteen specialty grocers, farmers markets and wine shops within 2 miles.

maybe it's because i haven't had dealings with other counties, but when i moved from forsyth to fulton, it was a breath of fresh air to me. the people up at the DMV in forsyth county always had hour long waits, terrible service and terribly rude employees. in sandy springs, the DMV is like heaven compared to the one up in forsyth (i know the DMV is a state-run thing, so maybe it's just a fluke). but considering the dealings i've had with the tax commisioner and whatnot, fulton seems better to me than forsyth.
