Tucker’s Mayor and City Council held a work session and meeting on Monday night, wrapping up their business for the month of November.
The evening was highlighted by a pair of land use cases. The first was an ordinance for a rezoning to allow a 63-unit detached single family residential development on 22.5 acres at the intersection of Midvale Road and Lavista Road. The second was for a SLUP and concurrent variance to allow a personal care home at 5002 Chamblee Tucker Road. Both issues were before Council on a first read, meaning they held public hearings, but no votes were cast.
A third land use case, a petition for two special land use permits (SLUPs) to allow fuel pumps and alcohol sales at 4246 Lavista Road, was granted a deferral to the Council meeting on December 9.
Council took action on two transportation-related items: school zone flashing lights and traffic signal detection. They voted unanimously to approve a contract with Paula F. Price Enterprises for $44,345 to install seven sets of flashing lights at Tucker Middle and Tucker High Schools. They also cast a unanimous vote to approve a contract with Sunbelt Traffic for $20,600 to install traffic signal detection at six locations on Mountain Industrial Boulevard.
The evening began with a work session, which saw the Council receive updates on the Downtown Master Plan, the City’s Emergency Preparedness plans and business license renewals. As with any work session, no votes or formal action were taken.
The next City Council meeting will be December 9 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
