Atlanta officials are nearing an agreement on a deal to use rental car taxes to finance improvements near the proposed new arena for the Hawks (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/25)....Loudoun County, VA, will unveil a plan tonight for a "sprawling" sports and entertainment complex near Dulles Int'l Airport as the competition "intensifies" among four Northern VA counties vying to be home to a new ballpark. Regions have until May 15 to submit bids to the VA Baseball Stadium Authority (WASHINGTON POST, 4/25)....Maneuvering of the city of New York and the Yankees over a new stadium on Manhattan's West Side is profiled in the current NEW YORK magazine. Craig Horowitz writes Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's intent was to send a "clear pro-sports, pro- business message," but that was not a "strong opening position for negotiations" since the city seemed to be bidding "against itself." Giuliani "hasn't played the game well thus far, thought he hasn't lost it. Yet" (NEW YORK, 4/29 issue).
