Last night North Fulton residents convened at Alpharetta city hall to learn about and discuss a proposed MARTA extension from the North Springs station to Windward Parkway. Miscommunication about the start time required MARTA project manager Janide Sidifall to give two back-to-back presentations, in which she emphasized that the initiative was in the "early scoping" phase—the first step in a six-to-twelve-year process—and nothing is set in stone, including federal funding.

In the midst of this season's roller-coaster ride, some may have forgotten about the team's new stadium in Cobb County set to open in 2017.
