Turner Field Community Benefit Coalition Mission Statement

Summerhill, Peoplestown, Mechanicsville, and Pittsburg

We seek to obtain a binding legal agreement between developers, the city, Georgia State University, surrounding neighborhoods, and other shareholders involved in the redevelopment of Turner Field and surrounding areas.

We have brought together organizations and residents across our neighborhoods and the region to advocate for inclusive planning, transparent development, and community benefits.

The coalition seeks :

The Coalition will work with the City of Atlanta to support the Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) planning study to reimagine the entire Turner Field Stadium area and surrounding neighborhoods.

The Coalition will call upon the City of Atlanta, Fulton County, and the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority to define and agree to a competitive and transparent process to identify and select a developer for the Turner Field Stadium area.

The Coalition will negotiate directly with the developer for specific community outcomes that should result from the redevelopment project. Together we have the power to make sure this major development meets the needs of our communities today and in the future.
