DEKALB NEWS: Tucker's look at cityhood still in early stage

"Communities in DeKalb County that are considering incorporation won't get it this year.

State lawmakers have put the brakes on the growing drive to create new cities such as Dunwoody and a new Milton County, at least for this session.

Last week, the House Government Affairs Committee adopted rules under which it will take two legislative sessions for any such bill to clear the General Assembly.

In DeKalb County, the Tucker community may also attempt to form its own government. And it could become a successful city if Northlake Mall is within its borders. That was the finding of a preliminary study of the idea of incorporating the north DeKalb community of about 30,000 people." ...

"Tucker already has a main street, a downtown and a ZIP code - three signature elements of a city. Of 99 communities in metro Atlanta, Tucker ranked seventh in population and 25th in per capita income, according to an ad hoc committee studying incorporation."  Read more online:  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Thursday, February 1, 2007, Charles Yoo, Chandler Brown

NEIGHBORHOOD OF THE WEEK: Henderson Mill area
Strong schools, housing variety induce some who moved to come back

"Apartments, condos, townhouses, older brick ranches and new luxury homes mix easily in the neighborhoods off Henderson Mill Road in DeKalb's Northlake area. You'll also find stories ranging from tales of growing up here when it was pasture to recollections of moving in recently, eager to start a new chapter with a young family."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sunday, December 12, 2004, Laura Raines

SPOTLIGHT ON . . . Tucker
Community in DeKalb strives to control strong development, maintain small-town traditions 

"Atlanta real estate watchers have predicted that Tucker could become the next Brookhaven or Decatur, and the real estate market in the area has been steadily heating up" ... "Civic groups watch zoning carefully as land around Tucker and Clarkston is a hot commodity. Small, upscale neighborhoods and townhouses that appeal to young professionals, families and empty nesters are beginning to rise, and most sell quickly."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sunday, September 11, 2005, Laura Raines

DEKALB . . . Community aims to blend progress, charm
Tucker's turn for a makeover

"Tucker is striving to remake itself - not so much to be bigger, just better.

 

While their neighbors in Dunwoody and Doraville contemplate goals like cityhood or annexation, folks in the unincorporated north DeKalb community between I-85 and the Stone Mountain Freeway are focused on more basic matters: better schools, sidewalks, a place to walk the dog.

 

A loose assortment of civic leaders, businessmen and several residents are working on several fronts to improve the community of about 35,000 residents while retaining its old-town charm."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Thursday, February 2, 2006, Charles Yoo
