Atlanta leaders voting on money for Falcons stadium neighborhoods

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Monday, $30 million is at stake as the Atlanta City Council votes on an important part of the new Falcons stadium.

That money will be used to help three communities near the site of the new stadium, English Avenue, Vine city and Castleberry Hill.

They were all promised financial help when the Georgia Dome was first built.

The areas received more than $100 million in community improvement grants, but Councilman Michael Bond says promises of development failed and those neighborhoods have struggled to recover.

Bond says nearly all of that money went down the drain and he's vowing to not let that happen again.
