Business owners angered at new Braves stadium parking plan

ATLANTA (AP) — Some business owners near the Atlanta Braves' new stadium in the suburbs say they've invested in improvements, and hoped to earn back part of the money by charging fans to use their parking spaces on game days.But they are now learning about an ordinance passed earlier this year that outlaws property owners within a half-mile of the stadium from charging for parking during games.The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/297Z0Xz) that the ordinance closes off potential revenue for dozens of businesses that own more than 10,000 private spaces — many of which could compete with the team for parking revenue.County officials say the law is necessary for public safety.The newspaper reports that for thousands of fans, the restriction could mean fewer parking options on game days.___Information from: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, http://www.ajc.com
