List of municipalities in Georgia (U.S. state)

Jump to: navigation, search

As of May 2013, there were 536 incorporated municipalities in the U.S. state of Georgia. The municipalities are labelled cities or towns, although there is no legal difference between a city or town in Georgia.[citation needed].

Six municipalities listed below have merged with their counties to form consolidated city-counties.

  • Athens-Clarke County
  • Augusta-Richmond County
  • Columbus-Muscogee County
  • Cusseta-Chattahoochee County
  • Georgetown-Quitman County
  • Macon-Bibb County

Of these six, Athens-Clarke, Augusta-Richmond and Macon-Bibb Counties also have municipalities independent of the consolidated governments.

Payne City, a small city in Macon-Bibb County, is expected to ask the Macon-Bibb Legislative Delegation to take their charter and allow them to consolidate within Macon-Bibb County.

In two counties, Echols and Webster, existing municipalities were abolished, leaving only unified county governments comparable to the consolidated city-county governments listed above.

Two municipalities have been formed since the 2010 Census: Peachtree Corners in Gwinnett County, and Brookhaven in DeKalb County. As of February 2013, no official Census count or estimate of either town has been published.

  • The boundaries of Peachtree Corners[2] are nearly coterminous with the boundaries of zip code #30092.[3] The 2010 census population of this zip code was 31,704.[4]
  • The former Census Designated Place of North Atlanta, Georgia, is contained within the boundaries of Brookhaven. The 2010 census population of this CDP was 40,456.[4] A 2012 article on the vote to create Brookhaven claims an estimated population of 49,000, but with no source citation.[5]
