Statement from Central Atlanta Progress on the Atlanta Braves

November 11,2013

Central Atlanta Progress (CAP) and its leadership are, of course, disappointed about the Atlanta Braves’ intention to move to Cobb County.  We strongly believe that the team belongs in the city of Atlanta and we are hopeful that the Braves and the City will develop a scenario that will keep them at Turner Field far beyond 2016.

The Braves have been an important part of the urban fabric of Atlanta for almost 50 years.  With the incredible change that is taking shape in the central city, we would like to see the Atlanta Braves continue to be a key part of the positive momentum.
