The future of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was debated last night in front of the City Council's Executive Committee. A resolution filed by one member would save the stadium from the "wrecking ball" after the Olympics in order to "respect its history and because it could still serve the city as a soccer and track facility and marketplace." But ACOG's Dir of Government Relations Greg Pridgeon said ACOG "remains committed to paying off the debt" on the stadium and tearing it down. The County Recreation Authority also favors demolition. Although keeping the stadium is "unlikely," Braves President Stan Kasten would not rule it out (Michelle Hiskey, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/7).
