Deadline Looms For Falcons Stadium Petition
William Perry of Common Cause Georgia said Thursday the group continues to gather signatures ahead of Saturday's deadline but knows it will need a "miracle to get over the top."
Perry says the group knew it was a longshot to gather 35,000 signatures in 60 days to qualify for the November ballot, but it's been worth the effort.
State and city officials have signed off on the $1 billion stadium project that includes an estimated $200 million in public bonds.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has said the stadium is an important project to create jobs and revitalize neighborhoods.
