(CBS ATLANTA) If all goes according to plan, the Atlanta Falcons and the city of Atlanta will break ground on a new stadium next April.

Wednesday, the team brass, the stadium designer and city officials met with the public to discuss the impact of the project.

The meeting touched on a whole host of issues about how the new stadium will impact the city of Atlanta – everything from jobs, to communities and schools, but the one thing that may have rubbed some of the Falcons faithful the wrong way are personal seat licenses.

Some season ticket holders said they may not return to the new stadium in 2017 if ticket prices, thanks to personal seat license agreements, are too high. Some fans fear those licenses could start at $10,000.

“I pay like $1,300 for my three seats I have up behind the goal post now, but $10,000 will be outrageous. I like being a season ticket holder, but it goes past $10,000 to be a season ticket holder, I guess I won’t be a season ticket holder,” said one fan.
