Kind of Shocking, Isn’t It

Sometimes a fixation about today, or about history, makes people forget about the future.  There are two serious possibilities about the future of La Vista Road and Tucker.

In version B, there might be another small sign on the side of the road, with an arrow pointing toward Tucker and the words “Tucker - 2 miles”.

There’s a chance to make Briarcliff and Tucker front and center on I-285, with both of our names on a series of exits, from Chamblee-Tucker to the Stone Mountain Expressway.


And then there’s the alternative.

Ahhh, another gust of hyperbole from COBI's favorite son, Herman! But you have to acknowledge that even the Federal Government recognizes the fact that, no matter how you exit I-285 to Lavista Road, you will ALWAYS be in Tucker. That is as true today as it will be 20 years from now. I think you should put your new Interstate road signs leading to the bountiful City of Briarcliff on all those exits off I-85, which you will be sharing with Chamblee and Brookhaven. And we should probably save 'Fran Millar Memorial Boulevard' for that one block stretch in front of his house - in Dunwoody.

Kinda true--I was trying to figure out where the one sign you'd place should be when Lakeside won the state AAAA Soccer championship a few years ago. I decided Shallowford at I-85. The thing is, I really believe most Lakeside and Briarcliff folks would've preferred it there rather than at Northlake. Reason being--people inside the Perimeter haven't shown any love for the Lavista/I-285 area for 20 years, going on 25. They have spat on it, complained about it and held their nose while driving by--if they ever drove by...and its not just about retail. Nowwwww...everyone wants it.

Yes, the federal government deeply cares about us, and is typically right.
