Hizzoner Mayor Reed announced a deal has been reached with Friendship Baptist Church, one of the two churches blocking the new
and completely unnecessary Falcons stadium.
“I am pleased with the solid progress on the construction of a new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons in the heart of our city,” said Mayor Reed. “Most important of all, we have kept our promise to treat the members of Friendship Baptist Church with dignity and respect and reach an agreement that is fair and reasonable for all parties. With both the south and north site as possible locations for the new stadium, factors such as transportation, neighborhood impact, and infrastructure needs can be better weighed and balanced.”
Now only Mount Vernon Baptist Church must agree to negotiations for the proposed south site to move forward.
