Tucker’s Mayor and City Council held their final May meeting on Tuesday night, casting votes on a pair of land use petitions.
The first petition was for a rezoning and concurrent variances for townhomes at Ashbrooke Trace. The variances sought to reduce streetscape requirements, reduce lot widths and alter the standards for garages. Council approved the project unanimously.
The second petition was for a special land use permit (SLUP) for a home-based business with customer contact at 1387 Wenlock Edge Cove. The applicant was seeking permission to host a recording studio inside the home. Council approved the SLUP, again on a unanimous vote.
