I'm not thrilled with unincorporated DeKalb, but I feel the same way about CoA (the hell no part).

On the public school front--you have a system where middle and upper income famlies are increasingly participating in the system, versus one where that appears to not be the case.

Is Emory exempt from property taxes and sales taxes?

If so how would their annexation affect the city of Atlanta budget?

A lot of the stuff at Emory is retail and apartments. So I wouldn't think any of that would be tax-exempt. And the rest of the area is all wealthy SFH which would generate a lot of property tax.

Annexing the Druid Hills area + Emory would add probably at least 20,000 residents to the city. Which I think would put the city over the half million population mark.

Overall, I like this and I think it makes sense.

The article says that the Emory proposal does not include Dekalb schools, but I imagine schools would be affected--if nothing else, I would expect some affluent neigborhoods (and possibly their schools) would leave with Emory. Also, I wonder if Fernbank and the CDC might bolt as well?

However, Emory itself is probably exempt from property or sales taxes.

Would the city have to provide municipal services to them or would that come from DeKalb county or Emory itself?

As I read the article in the OP, the neighborhoods around Emory may or may not be included.

I would think the Unviersity campus is exempt from property taxes, but development like Emory Point and Emory Village would have to pay.

I get the impression DHHS and DHMS gets a higher % of those than Grady HS and Inman MS do.

Yes, but only if they are included. Are Emory Point and Emory village part of the campus?

According to the OP, the proposal is for Emory University only at this point. It'll be up to the surrounding areas whether they want to come in.

I remember reading a couple of years ago that 3 properties on Briarcliff separated Emory from city of Atlanta so that they would have to get those properties to agree before they were adjacent and eligible to join. They also have their Briarcliff campus which is separate and not adjacent to any of the city of Atlanta, although with the Edmund Park annexation, they are pretty close to the city limits.
