The Georgia Dome in Downtown will be demolished by fall 2017 to make way for parking for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium,  according to WABE. Leaders of the team now building the Atlanta Falcons’ new home say they’re close to choosing a demolition contractor for the Georgia Dome next door to the new stadium site.

The Georgia Department of Education has released 2016 Milestone results for EOC (End of Course) and EOG (End of Grade) achievement levels. You can see the results for Atlanta Public Schools at this link.

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has signed a letter of intent for approximately 50,000 square feet of space at Peachtree Center in Downtown. ARC, the official planning and intergovernmental coordination agency for the 10-county Atlanta region, will relocate its approximately 200 employees to Peachtree Center, taking occupancy next summer. In addition to two and a half floors of office space, ARC will lease about 9,000 square feet of conference and community meeting space.
