Fulton County Backs Down, Schedules Vote on Approving College Park Annexation

The skirmish over annexation between Fulton County and the City of College Park has ended.

Fulton County Commissioners are scheduled to withdraw their objection to College Park annexing 225.128 acres of land along Roosevelt Highway and Naturally Fresh Boulevard in south Fulton County.

The County Commission vote, which comes after the College Park City Council annexed the property at its 17 March 2015 meeting, is expected to take place 1 April 2015.

Staff in the Fulton County Planning and Community Services Department could not find a valid reason to object to College Park annexing the 225.128 acres.

The land, valued at $33,818,800, is outlined in red below:
