New renderings of the completed Falcons stadium have been posted showing the outdoor plaza, underground parking and street views. Construction continues on the site next door to the Georgia Dome in Downtown despite a lawsuit filed by neighboring residents, which is being considered by the Georgia Supreme Court Residents who live near the stadium site, and the current Georgia Dome, say more money needs to be spent on the urban renewal of the neighborhoods. A ruling isn’t expected until March. See more renderings at this link.

MARTA will begin expanding into Clayton County, the first new county to add MARTA since the agency began operating in Fulton and DeKalb in 1971, as early as March. According to the AJC, Clayton voters approved a sales tax increase yesterday from seven to eight percent to fund the transit service. Full bus service will begin in 2016 and money will be set aside for future rail service.
