Win or Waste? SPA hosts Stadium Debate
As part of the annual celebration of World Town Planning Day, Georgia Tech’s Student Planning Association hosted a panel discussion on 5 November about the proposals for a new Atlanta Falcons stadium. The student group invited Representative Mike Dudgeon (R), Representative Rashard Taylor (D), Reverend Anthony Motley, and Georgia Tech's Dr. Benjamin Flowers to present the concerns and promote the opportunities that a partially tax-payer funded project could bring the city. Each speaker advocated for their positions through individual presentations and an audience question and answer session. Endorsed by the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), World Town Planning Day advances public and professional interest in planning throughout 30 countries around globe each November.
