These items are now high on the long to-do list of Braves executives working on the team’s planned move to Cobb County:
- Tour sports facilities around the country to collect stadium design ideas.

- Hire a lead architect for the stadium.
- Negotiate contracts with Cobb County more detailed than the approved memorandum of understanding.
