ATLANTA MAYOR HOPEFUL HAWKS LOCATE NEW ARENA DOWNTOWN
Published June 22, 1995
Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell is "optimistic" the Hawks will build their new arena downtown and spark a "renaissance" in the area, according to Maria Sapota and Henry Unger of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Sapota and Unger report the city put together an "excellent package" for Turner executives to review. William Shaw, head of the Hawks Arena Task Force: "We continue to work optimistically with the mayor's office. They have worked very hard on this." The Task Force is expected to make a presentation to Hawks Owner/TBS Chair Ted Turner soon, perhaps as early as next week (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/22).
