Tucker, GA — The Tucker Planning Commission at its Feb. 18 meeting will hold a public hearing and first read of a special land use permit for a new bank.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. It will be conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To view the agenda for the Feb. 18 meeting, click here. For instructions about how to attend via Zoom, click here.

The SLUP would allow a CDC Federal Credit Union Branch with drive-through lanes and canopy at 4816 Briarcliff Road NE, for applicant Consultants and Builders Inc.

“The applicant, Consultants & Builders, Inc., has submitted a special land use permit request for two drive-through lanes on behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Federal Credit Union, who is proposing to open its first standalone branch on this site,” the staff report about the SLUP request says. “The CDC Federal Credit Union began in 1949 and serves citizens of DeKalb, Fulton, Gwinnett and those who work at over 100 companies around the state. This location would provide members with a physical location to be assisted. The development of the CDC Credit Union is part of the overall Northlake Mall redevelopment being done by ATR Corinth partners to revitalize the property and overall area.”

Staff recommends approval, with conditions.

“The proposed use is consistent with the comprehensive plan character area Regional Activity Center and the NL-1 (Northlake High-Intensity Commercial) zoning district,” the staff report says. “The proposed accessory drivethrough lanes would be complementary to the permitted credit union use and would enhance the Northlake area by developing a currently underutilized site and provide walkable connections to surrounding parcels. The proposed use also complies with all supplemental regulations in the zoning ordinance for drive-through facilities.”

The agenda also includes a review of a text amendment to the city’s zoning code.
