Ott Non-Committal on Braves Stadium Plan – Government – East Cobb, GA Patch

While some of his colleagues were ecstatic about the prospects of an Atlanta Braves stadium being built near Cumberland Mall, Cobb Commissioner Bob Ott didn’t give any indication Thursday about where he stands.

Ott, an East Cobb Republican who represents the area around Interstates 285 and 75 where the proposed stadium would be built, said late Thursday he needs time to evaluate the details of the financing plan released earlier in the day by Cobb Commission Chairman Tim Lee.

Here’s the full text of Ott’s statement:

I am glad to see the proposed financial model has been released and is available for public review and comment at www.cobbcounty.orgMany of the residents in District 2 have emailed or called me with their concerns and comments regarding the proposed stadium and associated development. I appreciate their input and apologize for not answering all of the emails. Please know that your comments are being considered by me. 

I personally met with Mike Plant from the Braves management team this morning to discuss these concerns and issues. Among the many issues discussed were traffic, schools and financing for the project.  


Over the next couple of days, they will be providing more information and details concerning many of these issues. I will diligently review this proposal to make sure the best interest of Cobb taxpayers are protected.  

I want to thank the Braves for their interest in making Cobb County their new home.
