Unofficial results from Georgia's primary elections show that voters have approved what will soon become Georgia's newest city.

Election results from the Georgia Secretary of State's Office show that more than 54 percent of voters on Tuesday approved creation of Brookhaven, just northeast of Atlanta.

With all 12 precincts reporting results, the vote was 5,939 to 4,928.

Officials say it will be the largest city in DeKalb County and will likely be Georgia's 16th largest city.

The decision follows the creation of several other new cities in the Atlanta metro area, including Sandy Springs, Milton, Johns Creek and Chattahoochee Hills in Fulton County.
