All you guys that are for it need to pool your money and build the Ball Park. If it was a win win thing you wouldn't need tax payers money to build it. People would be standing in line with their wallet open wanting a piece of the action. If the Braves thought it was a money maker they would fund the whole stadium. However, if we build it there is no guarantee that they will keep a team here.
It was reported this morning that the people who own the property where they want to put the stadium owns taxes over 100k. I bet his reality friends on the council is trying to help him out. Let’s wait a couple more years and the city can take the property for the taxes owned.
I have lived here all my life and I see money poured into the down town area like it was an old boat. It has not grown (other than bars) and it never will.
