Earlier this week, State Rep. Pat Gardner, D-Atlanta, floated two City of Atlanta annexation maps to the General Assembly’s Fulton County delegation. The two pieces of legislation, HB 586 and HB 587, are likely to come up for a discussion as the legislative session draws to an end.  Because the bills are considered local legislation, they’re not bound by the Crossover Day deadlines. 

The first bill, HB 586, covers North Druid Hills.

The other, HB 587, covers south Fulton.
