Seams the spend doctors are at work with the Braves Research. I just received a telephone survey that was extremely slanted toward the Stadium. The survey stated the transportation plan had already been designed and paid for. Really, GDOT didn’t know about it. Do they really think we are so stupid? Survey stated no additional taxes. Wait, you are moving money from a parks bond to the stadium, which is against the law since you didn’t list the Stadium as a project in the bond, where will that lost parks money come from? The politicians in Cobb want a feather in their cap and need a boot in their butt. The research is out there; publicly funded stadiums make money for the wealthy owners and do very little for the people that funded it. If a bunch of millionaire/billionaires want a new stadium, let them pay for it. When people elect people that have filed bankruptcy to control their money, they should expect to lose theirs as well.

Although CCT bus lines service the area, the lack of frequency in the evening hours needs to be addressed. You can't have one bus an hour when people are ready to leave after the game. There also needs to be more weekend service, and service hours on Route 15 to Windy Hill and Powers Ferry ought to be extended so fans along that route can transfer either to the Braves circulator bus (if it will extend that far) or to CCT Route 50.

Great for Cobb and Great for Atlanta. The new area is perfect and good for busines
