Braves' wishlist for Turner Field development included limits on nearby restaurants, 8,600-car parking deck

So what did the Atlanta Braves want from the city to stay at Turner Field? According to documents obtained from Mayor Kasim Reed's office, the team's executives wanted to split the cost of stadium renovation costs between the city, county and Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority, get out from under AFCRA's oversight and deal with City Hall directly, and manage parking.

The team also wanted a list of requirements on whatever development was selected to transform the mammoth parking lot across the street from The Ted. Among them: a parking deck that could accommodate 8,600 cars, a ban on certain types of businesses "that may be offensive or vulgar to the community or Braves' fans," and limits on the number and location of fine-dining restaurants and sports bars. It'd also prohibit certain advertisements promoting competitors of the Braves' exclusive sponsors.

Oh, and "ANLBC" stands for "Atlanta National League Baseball Club."
