Mike Plant filled the Post 5 open seat on the seven-person board that had been previously held by Trey Parrish. He represented the Maryland-based company that sold the property to the Braves in January for the purposes on building a new stadium and mixed-use development.
On its Facebook page Friday, the CCID posted:
The CID board elected Atlanta Braves Executive Vice
President Mike Plant yesterday to fill its vacant position. The Braves are now
one of the largest land owners in the Cumberland area with 82 acres. Through
this position, the Braves will have the opportunity to work with the rest of
the board to make critical public infrastructure improvements that will benefit
the entire Cumberland community.
Like Plant, the other members of the board represent large property owners within the Cumberland area. The CID is a self-taxing district that allows businesses to invest in roads, trails, beautification, and other infrastructure projects that improve their property values as well as the community.
