Long-term plan sought for Georgia Dome

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA - The Georgia World Congress Center Authority is trying to determine what to do with the Georgia Dome.

The authority agreed on Tuesday to pay Populous architects of Kansas City $145,000 to propose a master plan for the Dome, the home of the Atlanta Falcons since 1992. The results could be available by early spring.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank has said he wants a new stadium when the bonds sold to build the dome are paid off.

Dan Graveline, executive director of the Congress Center, told board members the study would look at the merits of renovating the dome or building a new stadium.

Populous, which specializes in sports arenas, looked at the Dome's future in a study it conducted for the authority last year that examined the entire campus.

The owners can pay players

The owners can pay players millions of dollars to run, kick, or throw a ball but the the taxpayers have to foot the bill to provide them a place to work? Hey, taxpayers paying for others' service? Sounds familiar.

Everybody on here that works

Everybody on here that works are in the wrong jobs. Start business that "study" things for municipalities, and then soak them for money. Most of the work will be done by a $20,000/yr employee sitting at a computer anyway. And they've already done one study, now here comes another.
