Your copy of the new Lakeside-Tucker map


State Rep. Scott Holcomb, D-Atlanta, has done everyone in DeKalb County a favor by pushing out the above new map negotiated between supporters of the proposed cities of Lakeside and Tucker. Click on the image to enlarge.

The cityhood bills have been stopped, given that the above chartage was a surprise to lawmakers on Wednesday. But dead legislation has a history of Lazarus-like revivals – so pay attention.

Writes Holcomb:

Some constituents have asked whether Livsey Elementary is in the proposed city of Lakeside or Tucker.  Based on our reading of the map, the school would be in the proposed city of Tucker, across Livsey Road from the Livsey precinct.  Those who live in that precinct would be in the city of Lakeside, however.
