Project Focused on Sewer Fix

Personnel from DeKalb County’s Watershed Management are making much-needed improvements to county-maintained sewer infrastructure. The county is improving the lift station facility as well as the service lines along Mountain Industrial Boulevard between Hugh Howell Road and Tucker Industrial Road. This effort will correct system deficiencies that produce sewer overflows, which will limit property damage and health risks. Read more...

Construction Beginning for New Restaurant

There is another sign of progress along Mountain Industrial Boulevard. Crews recently demolished the former Shoney’s at the corner of Roger Marten Way, and work will soon begin for a new McDonald’s. The CID welcomes the addition as another business locates to our 'Incredible Corridor.'

Surveying Begins for Intersection Upgrades

Improvements are beginning at two key CID access points. The CID is funding design and surveying for turning radius improvements at the intersections of Flintstone Drive and Hugh Howell Road, as well as North Royal Atlanta Drive and Highway 29. These projects will minimize the potential for trucks and other traffic to hit curbs and drainage structures during turns. Read more...

CID Part of Proposed City of Tucker

State lawmakers recently approved proposed cityhood boundaries that would include the Stone Mountain CID as part of the new City of Tucker, should voters agree to incorporate their area.

Residents will likely vote this fall on the new city, which would account for almost all of the CID's territory. The proposed Tucker boundary extends south along both sides of Mountain Industrial Boulevard from the DeKalb County line to East Ponce De Leon Avenue. (Click link below to see complete maps.)

The proposed cities of Tucker and LaVista Hills were approved by the Georgia legislature on the 40th legislative day, and once signed by the Governor, will be voted on in November of 2015. A conference committee voted 5-1 to split a disputed area near Spaghetti Junction between the two cityhood movements: Tucker gets a Wal-Mart, QuikTrip and 50 residents, while LaVista Hills retained 1,500 residents.

The House approved LaVista Hills 112-52 and Tucker 131-33; the Senate passed LaVista Hills 36-8 and Tucker 43-4. The City of Stonecrest passed the Senate, but did not make it out of the House during the session. It will likely be brought back next year.

Maps of the proposed cities are available here.
