Tucker’s City Council voted 6-1 Monday night to approve a rezoning that will allow for the construction of a 24-single family home development in the southwest part of the City. The project, being developed by Ardent Companies, will be located on the north side of Lawrenceville Highway at Henderson Drive.
A second development, which would currently place 54 townhomes on the south side of Lawrenceville Highway at Bishop Drive, was granted a deferral on a 5-2 vote. The deferral was requested by developer Ardent Companies with the goal of working with the City Council to refine their plans. A first read on this project is scheduled for April 9 with a second read and vote anticipated on April 23.
Council then held a public hearing on amendments to the City’s zoning ordinance. Those amendments would impact measures such as density bonuses and fundamentally change the definition of the RSM zoning district. They are scheduled for an April 9 second read and vote.
Earlier in the meeting, Council voted unanimously to approve an annexation petition by a group of property owners along E. Ponce de Leon Ave. The annexation brings Graphics Packaging and Eagle Rock into the City effective April 1.
The Mayor and Council also formally welcomed new Tucker High School Principal Dr. Eric Parker. Dr. Parker returns to assume the reins at Tucker High 24 years after he graduated from the school.
The next scheduled City Council meeting is Monday April 9 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
