Proposed City of Sharon Springs

For over a decade now, north Metro Atlanta has seen a slew of new cities emerge with the additions of Sandy Springs, Johns Creek and Milton. Some residents of the southeast portion of Forsyth County have been lobbying for years for the creation of their own city – Sharon Springs. After a ballot initiative was approved to give its residents a say in the issue on a referendum on the May 22 ballot, there has been a lot of back and forth on the pros and cons of incorporating as Forsyth County’s second city. Two of those potential residents, Brian Francis (pro) and Charlie Smith (con) join the show to discuss what they see as the pluses and minuses of incorporating.
