A spokeswoman for the Braves said they will work with the county to provide appropriate pedestrian access.
It is unclear how much the improvements would cost, or who will pay for them. Braves spokeswoman Beth Marshall declined to “speculate on the financial arrangement” because it is “undetermined at this time what improvements are required.”
GRTA staff recommended that the project be approved, on the condition that those improvements be made. They also recommended several other improvements related to road connectivity, parking and vehicle access to the site.
GRTA’s final decision on whether to approve the project is expected to be announced on June 18.
Cobb County still has final say over the approval of a project. Cobb officials say they will develop a pedestrian safety plan upon completion of the site design and parking locations.
The stadium is set to open in time for the spring 2017 season.
