The Marietta Daily Journal – Panel advances bond with new

MARIETTA — The City Council took the first step toward increasing an originally proposed $35 million redevelopment bond to $68 million Wednesday, allocating the increase to the Franklin Road corridor.

The council’s Economic/Community Development Committee, comprised of council members Johnny Sinclair, Anthony Coleman and Chairman Grif Chalfant, voted 2-1 to advance the $68 million bond proposal to the full City Council for approval July 10.

Coleman dissented, saying he wanted to stay at the $35 million amount because the project could “blow up in the city’s face.”
