State Requirements

Incorporating in the State of Georgia is a legislative process. It requires the following steps:

  • A bill announcing the intent to incorporate must be filed during a regular legislative session
  • A Feasibility Study must be conducted at the expense of the citizens proposing the city
  • During the following regular legislative session, the bill to incorporate must be debated and approved by both the house and the senate
  • Once approved, the Governor must sign the bill

A referendum vote of the citizens affected by the incorporation is typically added to a General Election or Special Election in which the citizens of the proposed city can all vote.

If the referendum passes with a simple majority, the city is created and can begin operations.
