What a City of Tucker Can Do for You

Local control of the Tucker community by Tucker citizens

  • The Tucker community would take responsibility for managing services that have a direct bearing on Tucker’s economic development and growth, and that are currently provided by DeKalb County.

  • A locally elected City Council of our neighbors would represent Tucker residents and businesses in making decisions about quality of life matters such as planning and zoning, code enforcement and parks and recreation.

A fiscally responsible City start-up with room to grow

  • Building a solid foundation on services that Tucker citizens are already actively engaged in ensures a stable start-up for the City of Tucker. Parks and Recreation, Planning and Zoning, and Code Enforcement are key quality of life services that Tucker citizens have been partnering with DeKalb County on for years. This local experience and expertise focused at the City government level allows local control for effective accomplishments.

  • The Tucker community has repeatedly expressed its desire to be realistic in what it provides its citizens. After standing up a solid city, we can responsibly add services if the community chooses.

Full-time city officials dedicated to Tucker’s needs

  • As volunteers, we’ve always rolled up our sleeves and gotten things done, but imagine what we can do with full-time city officials dedicated to Tucker’s needs.

  • Any city will need to continue to work with DeKalb County for vital services like drinking water, and to ensure the county remains viable. Tucker has a strong working relationship with DeKalb and that will continue. Local control means we can focus on economic growth for the City of Tucker while working to ensure all of DeKalb County continues to prosper.
