Can Anyone Explain THIS??

Wonder if these homes, found on Zillow.com, were factored into "The Lakeside Plan."

Would you pay that much for a home that is apparently on the easement of someone else's front yard?
They have full descriptions.  They just are not physically there.



Looking to move to a certain school attendance zone so you can get the best education possible in DeKalb County, the worst large metropolitan county for education in one of the lowest ranked states for education in the country?  If you answered yes, then you are exactly the kind of person who needs one of these beauties:

How about 1944 Silvastone Dr # 0, Decatur, GA 30033, 4 beds 2.5 baths-- sqft


FACTS  

Single Family

  • Built in 1960
Of course we don't know how this home existed on this street in 1960 when all the others around it were built in 1966 or later.   Maybe this WAS the one room school room where the kiddos used to go?  Either way, it is a steal at $321,000 and you never worry about lawn care because you don't actually own anything.  Your home exists on an imaginary lot between two existing homes, right on their front lawn!  Sounds cozy!  Don't forget the "-- sqft."

Not right for you?  Then how about:  3330 Briarlake Rd, Decatur, GA 30033,  2 beds 2 baths

This 1,500 square foot single family home has 2 bedrooms and 2.0 bathrooms. It is located at 3330 Briarlake Rd Decatur, Georgia.

What the last home didn't have in terms of  lot size, this home makes up for.    15.5 acres and built in 1863.

FACTS
Single Family
Built in 1863 
Cooling: Central

Lot: 15.5 acres
We could go on and on, but you can just look at Zillow.

Welcome to Smoke Rise, Soon to be Tucker, GA

The driving force behind the city of Tucker has been the leadership within the community known as "Smoke Rise, GA."  Smoke Rise residents currently have addresses that say "Stone Mountain, GA" and many of them worked hard in order to create a separate identity for themselves, petitioning the U.S. Post Office to change their official name to "Smoke Rise."  While the Post Office did not agree to change the official name, they did agree to allow "Smoke Rise" as a recognized alternative to "Stone Mountain" that could be used interchangeably as long as it accompanied their 30087 zip code.

It is important to note that these residents did not ask the Post Office to recognize their use of "Tucker" as an acceptable alternative.  They asked to be called "Smoke Rise."

It appears that zip codes and address labels are important to them, just as our Tucker zip code is important to us.  And, while we do understand that Smoke Rise…

Tucker Behaving Badly

Newly elected Tucker Mayor Frank Auman (center) and four council-members were sworn in to their positions on March 8 at Tucker High School.  The council members represented exactly 2 of the 3 districts.  Despite the fact that they were not bound by any particular charter requirement to do so, they decided to move forward without the conclusion of District 2's election, which was held over by the need for a runoff.

When met with objections, they promptly began holding meetings anyway.  And they hired staff members, specifically lawyers, more specifically lawyers who are experts in election laws and understanding the charter. 

The seats for District 2 were decided in a runoff election March 29. And April 1, the results were deemed finalized by the Elections Supervisor in DeKalb County.  A separate swearing in ceremony was held at Tucker Recreation Center for them.

When Auman was elected mayor, he said his first goal is to build a foundation for the city.

Tucker Township? A Vision or a Pipe Dream?

Who drew this map?  We are not really sure.  We stumbled upon it recently while looking for Tucker election results. We do, however, think this map, called "Tucker Township" actually shows a good compromise between Tucker and Lavista Hills that could have worked well for everyone.   It offers a great way to share the Northlake area commercial tax revenue.  So, why didn't anyone suggest something like this  prior to putting forth competing bills in the 2013 and 2014 legislative sessions?  And, why is Tucker's city still being allowed to move forward when it has been called "unconstitutional" by even the legislators who supported it?
Limited services government in the form of a new city is something that the Georgia constitution does not allow, apparently.  But, unless citizens decide to fight the creation of Tucker or Peachtree Corners, two of such limited cities are going to continue operating until someone tells them that they cannot.
