ATLANTA (AP) - Voters in metro Atlanta have approved the creation of Georgia’s newest city of Tucker, but rejected a proposal to create a second city of LaVista Hills.

DeKalb County voters decided the referendums during voting Tuesday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/1RsiMt7) that preliminary election results showed overwhelming support for Tucker but a narrow defeat for LaVista Hills.

Tucker, on the north side of the county just north and east of Atlanta, will have a population of about 33,300. It has been an unincorporated community for more than 120 years.

Had voters approved of LaVista Hills, it would have more than 67,446 residents.
