Over 37 property owners seek annexation into city
City council
Dawsonville Mayor and City Council
At least 37 annexation requests will be brought before the Dawsonville City Council after the council voted in January to waive fees for island annexations for 60 days. The city later decided to extend the waiver to include other annexations. Islands are unincorporated property surrounded by the city limits but not part of the city. In July, there were 72 islands in the Gold Creek subdivision alone, and many residents of the subdivision, who had been trying to annex into the city since February of 2017, were incensed by the council’s decision in July to instate an annexation fee in addition to making changes to the rezoning fee schedule.
