Stop the onslaught of auto-related businesses

We have been asking DeKalb County to achieve the vision of the Greater Hidden Hills Overlay District.  That vision is to make our business environment more diverse, attractive and prosperous.  Tycore Auto Services should NOT be granted a Special Land Use Permit to do major auto repair at 5361 Covington Highway. Within one mile of this address, there are 19 auto-related businesses. Within three miles, there are 183. Voice your opinion here, and we’ll send the results to our commissioners.  They say they haven’t heard from the community, so let them know your opinion!

We need diversity of businesses because we cannot get the services and products we need in our own community.  In the retail trade, food & drink areas alone, we lost $20 million in spending within 1 mile of this address, $86 million within three miles.  These are dollars spent outside of our community because the need is not met here.  (all data from ESRI, Nov. 2018)
