Please join Council member Carla Smith for the first meeting of the Turner Field Redevelopment Task Force on Wednesday, July 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the Old Council Chamber, 68 Mitchell Street – Atlanta City Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Councilwoman Smith, whose district includes Turner Field, sponsored legislation last year creating the task force to provide recommendations for residential, commercial, and transportation options for the property after the Atlanta Braves leave in 2017.
The task force is chaired by Smith and includes representatives from the City of Atlanta; Fulton County; the Atlanta Braves; and the neighborhood presidents of Summerhill, Mechanicsville, and Peoplestown.
“I am looking forward to getting started,” said Smith. “We will work diligently to offer recommendations that will produce a favorable outcome for the surrounding neighborhoods.”
The meeting is open to the public. Sitting is limited. For more information, please call Councilmember Smith’s office at (404) 330-6039.
