Fulton County and the city of South Fulton have reached a deal on the sale of Wolf Creek Amphitheater, following a legal battle over the music venue.

Fulton Commission Chairman Robb Pitts announced Wednesday night that the county is willing to sell for about $1 million.

For this to become reality, Pitts needs to convince the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to agree to the deal, and South Fulton Mayor Bill Edwards needs to do the same with the South Fulton City Council.

Edwards was not immediately available for comment Wednesday night.

South Fulton sued the county for control of several county-owned amenities, including two arts centers, libraries, a shooting range and the amphitheater.

Pitts told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday night that the deal could lay to rest all issues of transferring county facilities after South Fulton became a city in 2017.

The arts centers were transferred over to South Fulton at the turn of the year. And it was previously determined that the libraries would stay with the county.

As part of the deal announced Wednesday night, the county will retain ownership of Tom Lowe Shooting Grounds, which was the 1996 Summer Olympics shooting range.

If the deal is approved by both sides, the lawsuit will be dropped, Pitts told the AJC on Wednesday night.

“This is a huge step forward,” he said.
