Residents of south Fulton County voted overwhelmingly in favor of forming a new city — Residents of Chattahoochee Hill Country in the southwester corner of the county passed with 83 percent approval. The municipality will have fewer than 3,000 people scattered over 33,000 rural acres. While a governing structure has not been decided for CHC its highly possible that they will follow in the footsteps of Sandy Springs, Johns Creek and Milton and choose a largely privately operated city.
