The challenge will happen during a July 7 court hearing for the $397 million bond issuance. Pellegrino admits the odds are not good for CGT on July 7. If they fail, however, further action will be considered.
Another problem being reported by CL: the Braves were going to rent parking spaces from local businesses but many are balking at the impact that would have to their tenants. Some parking areas are three miles away.
It will be interesting to see if the Braves can get this stadium built by 2017. If they don’t, the Turner Field land will almost assuredly have been sold by then and development will have begun. That would leave the Braves without a stadium and stuck with a mayor who has shown no sympathy for their plight.
