Residents frustrated with Fort McPherson development plans

ATLANTA (AP) — Residents near Fort McPherson say they're frustrated about what they view as a lack of progress in redeveloping the massive military base.

The Atlanta City Council this month approved spending an additional $1.3 million to help keep the Fort Mac Local Redevelopment Authority going.

WABE Radio reports that one part of the base — the former forces command building — will be the new home for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Atlanta offices.

Board members say they're still negotiating with developer Stephen Macauley. He had a plan to develop the remaining 144 acres (58 ha) of the site, but the project has stalled.
