The development authority meeting was rescheduled for Tuesday evening, after the groundbreaking near Camp Creek Parkway and I-85 was supposed to happen. Kelli Colter, a College Park spokesperson, said the city would proceed with its plans for the 5,000-capacity multipurpose arena once the bonds had been validated. No date has been scheduled.
John Duke, the resident who challenged the bond issuance, said he hoped his complaint would delay the process long enough that the arena’s approval would have to come back before city council. Duke said he thought some members of the council had reconsidered their support for it.
Roderick Gay, the lone “no” vote when the arena was approved, said he thought there was less support now for a project he said does not make financial sense.
About a dozen residents came to court Friday, opposed to the arena project.
