What suggestions would you guys think would better suit the area?
There actually was a lake that abutted the Lakeside High School property, hence the name; it was drained years ago. Echo Lake, down the street, still remains.
Briarcliff doesn't really work for me, either. The origin of the road's name resides in Druid Hills (the Briarcliff Estate) and is nowhere near the boundaries of the proposed city.
What about Oak Grove? An historic community that forms the core of what is being proposed.

I like Oak Grove better too. I am sure there are some oak groves still in the area. Seems silly to name a city fo a lake (probably more like a big pond...) that doesn't even exist anymore. There is the forgotton town in Clayton named Lake City that also doesn't have a lake anymore.

How about LaVista? or Briarlake? There are several things in the area named Briarlake, gives homage to both Lakeside and Briarcliff.

Actually any of the names of neighborhoods.... Sagamore Hills, Toco Hills etc would be better than Lakeside. Toco Hills makes me think of the height of 50s and 60s kitsch.... mid century modern, bright, garsih store fronts, big finned cars... not that any of that was ever there, just the sound of it give that impression. The more I think about it, the more I like it.

I was thinking this when I proposed, but I wasn't sure! Thanks!

Yes--I withdraw Briarcliff, GA as the proposed name.


How about...

Oak Grove, GA?
Vista Grove, GA?

I vote for Oak Grove.

Lakeside sounds too much like an office park.
