ACOG UNVEILS OLYMPIC VILLAGE PLANS
Published December 7, 1994
On Tuesday, ACOG unveiled details of the Olympic Village and Int'l Festival Area, a 250-acre complex calling it "a cross between summer camp and Disneyland without the rides." When the Games begin, athletes, coaches and officials will take up residence in the village carved out of Georgia Tech. "What Atlanta's village may lack in the postcard scenery of Barcelona's 1992 seaside compound, it will try to compensate for in sheer size, entertainment value and air conditioning." The village will offer an array of services, including a bowling alley, gift shop, billiards, post office, foreign exchange bank, video arcade, hair stylist, shopping mall and several McDonalds (Lyle Harris, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/7).
