ATLANTA TRIES TO KEEP HAWKS FROM SOARING NORTH
Published September 26, 1994
The city of Atlanta has yet to propose a plan for a new arena for the Hawks. This comes four months after the city "vowed to wage a spirited campaign" to keep the team from moving to a state-of-the art arena in the north suburbs. Although Mayor Campbell set up a special city/Fulton County task force to form a proposal, discussions between the Hawks and the council have been "infrequent." Hawks VP Lee Douglas said they have "a lot of activity going on" and that there have been talks with IHL Atlanta Knights owner Richard Adler about a possible joint venture in Alpharetta. The Hawks have been looking at several proposals for an arena/ amphitheater complex at several suburban areas, and two downtown sites (Ailene Voisin, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/24).
