Hopefully they'll put it in an area that's not nearly as athletic and explosive.

I don't live in the city of Atlanta (but I am a proud ITP resident), but I recognize that taxes on taxis and hotel rooms have an impact, however minor, on me. That impact isn't that great, however.

the video is on but all they are doing is standing around doing nothing. It would be nice to wait until they are ready to announce their information before activating the video.

From the ajc article I gathered that they are sticking with the plan to stay in the same general area.

They're investing a lot of money in some of those areas that are already on their way to being gentrified. This could be a good thing.

People ITP aren't getting tax raped either. The two hundred million that the city is contributing is coming from the hotel/motel tax.

The terms to be announced today also call for an equal opportunity plan that will ensure at least 31 percent participation in design and construction by women and minority business enterprises.


There goes some under the table money from Mayor Reed.
