Promotional Video: "Project Yellowball"
The final, edited version of this video has been removed from YouTube since our site went up. We obtained this raw, unedited version from a concerned citizen. In the original, edited version Mayor Lori Henry explicitly states, "we've kept it fairly tight under wraps", "I have not had a single naysayer" and "everyone that hears about it is just so excited."

"Stone Mountain tried this after the 96 Olympics, now all that's left is a field full of rubble because they couldn't make a tennis center viable. To try the same thing across town while demolishing a public asset in the form of multi use green space that is already bringing in economic impact for Roswell is simply nonsensical!"
MIKE CASTELLE - via change.org petition
"The traffic on Old Alabama (only a 2 lane road) and Holcomb Bridge would be unbearable. The destruction of a well used and much loved nature area is unfathomable when there are other locations that might serve this ... I cannot imagine that this facility would be used at its capacity. I would think most courts would stand unused and a waste of valuable natural space. This is a lofty dream that will have a negative instead of positive impact on the area."
