In case you couldn't make Monday's City Council meeting, here's a brief rundown of what you missed:
The city hosted a Public Hearing starting at 5:30 specifically to gain resident input on plans by Globe Academy to re-locate to a campus on Northlake Pkwy. in Tucker. During their regular meeting, City Council voted to support the location of the school with the understanding that there is no city funding or taxpayer impact as a result of the project.
During the regular City Council Meeting the mayor honored local resident and pancreatic cancer survivor Merle Griffin with a proclamation declaring November 17 “Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day” in Tucker. Council then heard a presentation on Historical Preservation efforts in the city. They also voted to establish a temporary court in Clarkston funded under an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA), as well as approving an amended meeting calendar for 2017.
Developer Stephen Macauley made a presentation on his proposed 88-acre mixed use development “Nexus Tucker”, which would require re-zoning at the intersection of Hugh Howell Rd. and Mountain Industrial Blvd. That was followed by a public hearing where residents spoke out in favor and against the project. City Council will take up the issue and vote on it at their next scheduled meeting in December.
Council also did first reads on proposed ordinance changes pertaining to Sunday package sales and the Tucker Community Council. They finished by announcing that at the December meeting, Council will name a Chief Judge for the city of Tucker.
