Council for Quality Growth Announces John Williams CID Leadership Award Honoree

Bob Voyles, Principal of Seven Oaks, has been selected as the 2019 recipient of the John Williams CID Leadership Award.

Voyles will be honored at the Council for Quality Growth’s 10th Annual Community Improvement Recognition event on Wednesday, November 6 at Factory Atlanta in Chamblee.  The award recognizes those who have played an instrumental role in championing CIDs around the Metro Atlanta region through their vision, leadership, and dedication. Previous award recipients include: Governor Roy Barnes, Senator Johnny Isakson, Tad Leithead and Kerry Armstrong.

Voyles has dedicated over 20 years to advancing the mission of CIDs throughout the metro Atlanta region.  Council Members will recall that Voyles successfully advocated for the creation of the Perimeter Community Improvement District (PCID) in 1999. Voyles was instrumental in the expansion of PCID with the creation of a separate, adjacent CID called the Fulton Perimeter CID.  Under his visionary leadership, both CIDs became collectively known as the “Perimeter CIDs.” In the twenty years since 1999, Bob has served in various leadership capacities on the PCIDs’ Board of Directors. Currently, Bob serves on two CID Boards – Perimeter CIDs and Cumberland CID. Mostly recently, he played an instrumental role in the creation of the Chamblee-Doraville CID. The Council for Quality Growth is please to honor Bob Voyles for his lifetime of service to CIDs in the metro Atlanta region.

Another feature of the CID Recognition event will be paying tribute to all our region’s CIDs. Over 300 CID leaders, local and state elected officials, property owners will converge to highlight the 2019 achievements of Metro Atlanta’s 29 active CIDs. Sponsorships are now available for the 10th Annual CID Recognition event. For sponsorship and ticket information, please contact Director of Membership and Programs, Rebekah Babovic at
