Atlanta Falcons Respond To Atlanta City Council Vote Today

ATLANTA, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following an affirmative vote today by the Atlanta City Council extending the city's Hotel-Motel Tax and approving agreements related to a new multi-purpose stadium in Atlanta, Atlanta Falcons Owner & Chairman Arthur M. Blank issued the following statement:

"We are grateful for the Council's vote of support today.  I would like to thank Council Finance Committee Chairwoman Moore and Council President Mitchell on their leadership in ensuring that this was a transparent process.

"The agreements approved today represent the fruits of more than two years of collaborative discussions leading to a solution that serves the best interests of all involved, including the neighborhoods surrounding the new stadium. The actions taken today are also a critical step toward the completion of final agreements necessary to move the new stadium project forward.

"The city of Atlanta and state of Georgia have a history of building strong public-private partnerships in areas that contribute to economic development.  This project is no exception.  We appreciate the spirit of collaboration demonstrated by the Mayor's office, Atlanta City Council, Invest Atlanta, Georgia World Congress Center Authority and numerous community leaders in advancing a project that will benefit the city, region and state for many years to come.

"The Atlanta Falcons are proud to represent this fine city and state, and we look forward to continuing to work together, as well as being a significant contributor to the new stadium."
