Mayor Reed: $14.5M offered to Mt. Vernon church for Falcons Stadium

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Kasim Reed will held a briefing on developments around the Falcons Stadium at 10 a.m.

The Atlanta Falcons want to build a new stadium on the south site located south of the Georgia Dome, but to do that, Mount Vernon must agree to a deal.

Mayor Kasim Reed said $14.5 million was offered to Mount Vernon church. That includes $6.2 from the state and $8.3 from the Atlanta Falcons.

If they vote it down, Reed will stand shoulder to shoulder with the Falcons and support the north site, but he believes south is the best site.
