WHAT WE’RE ABOUT
The Tucker-Northlake Community Improvement District was originally formed in 2013 as the Tucker CID to generate revenue through self-taxation for economic development, transportation, and infrastructure projects.
Less than one year after the formation of the Tucker CID, a majority of the Northlake commercial business stakeholders joined the public-private partnership, which was then re-named the Tucker-Northlake CID.
The Tucker-Northlake Community Improvement District boundaries span the I-285/LaVista Road interchange in DeKalb County and extend from Lawrenceville Highway at Tucker Industrial Road, down Lawrenceville Highway to Montreal Road and LaVista Road, and through the Northlake business district. The entire area is roughly nine square miles.
