Tucker’s Mayor and City Council held their final May meeting on Tuesday, casting votes on land use and a host of other issues.
Council unanimously approved a special land use permit (SLUP) to allow for a massage establishment at 1505 Lilburn Stone Mountain Road. They also granted a SLUP for a child day care facility at 1940 Idlewood Road. Additionally, they okayed an amendment to the nuisance code that gives the City more enforcement tools to deal with structures in violation of building codes, as well as an amendment to the alcohol ordinance that will allow licensed caterers to sell alcohol off-premises for catered functions.
Council then voted to approve several items in relation to Parks and Recreation, including:
- an ordinance approving a 10-year lease with the Tucker Football League for use of Fitzgerald Field
- a $298,316 contract with F.H. Paschen to replace of all athletic field fencing in Henderson and Cofer Parks
- a $58,432 contract with F.H. Paschen to remodel a bathroom at Tucker Recreation Center, bringing it up to ADA standards
- a $63,929 contract with F.H. Paschen to renovate the kitchen at Tucker Recreation Center
The other major items of the night had to do with transportation. Council voted to authorize a contract for $162,710 with Construction 57 to install seven pedestrian-activated flashing beacon crosswalks around the City. They also received an update on the Strategic Transportation Master Plan. The document, which outlines $200 million in projects over the next two decades, will be folded into the City’s Comprehensive Plan upon its anticipated adoption later in the summer.
The next City Council meeting will be Monday June 10 at 6:45 p.m. at the City Council Chamber (4228 First Avenue).
