New stadium plan full of holes says Heather Alhadeff (CRP '00) and Prof. Dobbins

The talk about creating a new Atlanta Falcons stadium that does repeat the mistakes of the Georgia Dome and engages the surrounding communities has been mostly lip service according to Heather Alhadeff (MCP '00) and Professor Mike Dobbins of Georgia Tech's School of City and Regional Planning. “As a planner, it’s hard to understand why we in Atlanta still favor parking lots over beautiful urban places,” said Alhadeff. Proposals for a parking overlay district, additional surface parking, and the elimination of segments of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive or Mitchell Street to accommodate the stadium are being studied by Dobbins' planning studio.
