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.
