About Brookhaven: Metro Atlanta’s youngest city has wasted little time launching into local improvements. The West DeKalb city is in the midst of solidifying road and sidewalk improvement plans and recently hired a firm to conduct an audit of zoning regulations and designations within its borders. It also recently signed an intergovernmental agreement to switch its emergency dispatch service away from DeKalb County to the Chattahoochee River 911 Authority, a firm which currently provides dispatch to Sandy Springs, Johns Creek and Dunwoody.
