How appropriate to share the results of the Tucker feasibility study in downtown Tucker! Love thatRead More the proposed Tucker already has a city center where these events can be held and the community can gather.

Cheryl: I am very familiar with both the Tucker map and the Lakeside map, as I am included in both.Read More I'm also a realist and understand there were many challenges in putting a Tucker map together, such as the unincorporated island issue which is particularly problematic for Tucker given the proximity to the Gwinnett county border. Also I would guess they felt inclined to be at least somewhat comparable in size and tax base to the COBI and Lakeside efforts so they could compete for approval in the legislature down the road. Who defines the "traditional borders for Tucker" Cheryl? You? Since when does a post office zip code determine the makeup of a community? I live in Wembley Forest. My family and I spend a lot of time in Tucker, shop and eat, have a lot of friends, and love the events that have grown on Main Street in the last few years. But I'm not part of Tucker because I don't have a Tucker zip-code? Let's assume you're the Cheryl Miller that lives on Samaria Trail (quick google search). If so, you are 2.2 miles from the Local 7, and I'm 2.3 miles. But you're Tucker and I'm not? Do see how absurd that sounds? As for their 'plan', I've seen you criticize Lakeside for already having a plan and not taking community input, now you're going to criticize TT for not having a 'plan' and taking input? You can't have it both ways, Cheryl. It's obvious that you are anti-cityhood, and that's certainly your right to have that opinion. The point of my original post is that all you're doing is criticizing everyone for everything just to muddy the waters and see what sticks, trying to induce paranoia instead of having a reasoned conversation about the topic.

Way too much time and effort is being spent trying to reason with Cheryl Miller. I see very fewRead More people supporting her position, yet quite a few people trying to reason with her. It can't be done and IS unproductive . So to move to a positive note, I just went to the most recent Tucker 2014 meeting -- my third. Each time I get more convinced that incorporating as a city is the right move for the Tucker community, as Wayne and Brian have pointed out. Tucker has been a community for 120 years, and to preserve that identity, the best path forward is to incorporate. Dekalb County government has not served the best interests of our area, and in my opinion, a more decentralized, local government has a better chance of doing so. The map is drawn pretty close to traditional Tucker lines. Nothing will be perfect. I support Tucker 2014, and I think that the legislature will find the proposal a reasonable one. If that happens, then we can all vote on it.

Why is it that the strongest supporters of the Tucker 2014 group are those who find themselves inRead More "both maps" as mentioned above?

What's Tucker night all about?
Sonja Szubski October 19, 2013 at 08:46 am
Hi Ms. Darden, Tucker Nights are similar to the school spirit nights that restaurants sponsor. ThoseRead More that want to help out our cause, eat some good food, and support a local business, eat dinner and a portion of their sales is donated to Tucker's advocacy effort. We have had about 5 to date and all were very successful. Would love to see you on the 22nd.
Molly Darden October 19, 2013 at 09:10 am
Thank you, Ms. Szubski; it sounds like an excellent custom!
