TUCKER, Ga (October 19, 2016) – Tucker is embarking on development of the City’s first Comprehensive Plan.  The Plan will define the vision for the future of Tucker, establish community goals and prioritize steps for achieving goals.  Topics to be considered are broad including land use, natural and historic resources, economic development, housing and parks and recreation.

The Comprehensive Planning process will incorporate a collaborative, nine-month engagement of the community that will result in a blueprint for achieving the desired future for Tucker.  To kick off the project, city leaders are inviting the public to join community forums on Thursday November 17, 2016 and on December 15, 2016.

“When we began as a city, we adopted many of DeKalb County’s ordinances to make sure we had zoning in place.  Now it’s time to hear what residents, business owners and community organizations want the City to focus on in the years ahead.  We want a robust involvement of the community that generates a unified vision for the future of Tucker,” said Mayor Frank Auman.

The first phase of the planning process begins with the Visioning Workshop and the Civic Discussion public meetings that will provide civic leaders, residents, business owners, and other interested groups the opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the future of Tucker.
