City Council Wrap Up – April 8, 2024

PlaqueThe first meeting of April convened on April 8 at 7 p.m. with six members in attendance and an excused absence for Councilmember Cara Schroeder. The Livsey Elementary School Science Olympiad Team lead the Pledge of Allegiance followed by a presentation from the Tucker Civic Association for the City’s lifetime designation as an Age-Friendly City.

The City Manager distributed the first draft of the Fiscal Year ‘25 Budget, and staff then presented an update on SPLOST I and II. The Mayor Council heard three second reads and public hearings including a SLUP, a major zoning modification and a text amendment:

  • SLUP-24-0001 with a modified condition for a three bathroom requirement, to allow for a personal care home was approved 6-0.
  • A major modification to zoning on Fellowship Road to allow for a compounding pharmacy was approved 6-0.
  • The proposed text amendment to change the allowed density, width and height in the downtown corridor was amended twice by Council. Neither amendment passed and the text amendment was ultimately denied with a 6-0 vote.

In new business, the Mayor and Council voted 6-0 to accept 0.41 acres from Georgia Department of Transportation on Lawrenceville Highway and to award the contract for the City Standard Guidebook to TSW. They then voted 6-0 to defer the contract award for the Montreal Road sidewalk design and 6-0 to approve the contract for right of way acquisition along Mountain Industrial Boulevard.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:36 p.m. without Executive Session.
