TUCKER, GA (May 13, 2014) — The Northlake Business District officially joined forces with Tucker Community Improvement District (CID) as the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners formally approved the Tucker Community Improvement District’s request to annex over 67 Northlake commercial properties. The expansion adds over $111 million in appraised property value. The new boundaries extend down Lavista, Henderson Mill, and Northlake Parkway through the Northlake shopping district and the Montreal industrial corridor.
“We exceeded our expansion goals,” said Tucker CID President Ann Rosenthal. “This new footprint will allow us to more rapidly revitalize this area so that it can be an economic bridge on the East Side.”
The Tucker CID formed only last year, but in that short time, the group has already improved the I-285-LaVista road gateway project. With the annexation of the Northlake commercial districts, two board seats will become open in early July in time to begin work on a master plan for revitalization. The board will also vote to change the name to the Tucker Northlake CID.
