Now that Mayor Kasim Reed and the City of Atlanta have substantial skin in the new Falcons stadium game, in the form of a potential $200 million in bonds, the Saporta Report has analyzed the deal and concluded the city should use its leverage to benefit as much as possible. For instance, surplus hotel-motel taxes could pay for infrastructure fixes around the new roost. Writes Saporta: "The city also could work with GWCCA to make sure that the area around the new stadium, including the site of the current Georgia Dome, contribute as much to the urban experience as possible."
