Mayor Auman COVID UpdateAt the City Council meeting on December 14, Mayor Auman presented updated information about COVID.
Hugh Howell MarketplaceToday was an exciting day for Tucker’s future, as we broke ground on Hugh Howell Marketplace at the site of the old Sears distribution center on the corner of Hugh Howell and Mountain Industrial. The developer, Branch Properties, is investing $25 million in the project, which will be home to a state of the art Publix, and a range of other stores, restaurants and amenities themed around healthy living. With the arrival of the new Smoke Rise Elementary School, the relocation of Tucker’s own Crespac, and significant traffic improvements in the corridor, this once-blighted area will soon be a vibrant destination for Tucker’s citizens.
It’s a significant investment and vote of confidence in Tucker’s future, and I want to thank and congratulate everyone for their dedication and commitment to getting it all done right through the COVID pandemic. It’s been a great example of government supporting business to produce results for our city, planning and building for the future despite the many obstacles. As a result, we will not be standing flat-footed when we emerge from the present crisis, but will instead hit the ground running toward our future.
