SBD/7/Facilities Venues


     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).
