ATLANTA- Centennial Olympic Park officials say the economy has improved enough to start looking forward to new projects.  But first, they need funding sources--about $25 million worth.  

In Friday's Atlanta Business Chronicle renderings of the park's future projects will be unveiled.  There are scenes of improved walkways, landscaping and entrances.  The most dramatic change will be the closure of Andrew Young International Boulevard where it runs through the park.  

"We just want to enhance the park experience so we're never at the point where we say, 'I wish we would have done this,'" said Joe Skopitz, the Park's Assistant General Manager.   "We want to be ahead of that curve."

Skopitz said the renderings are basically a well-planned wish list.  They compiled them through visitor surveys and input.  The timeline for their completion will depend on where the funding comes from.  

He said shooting for a 2020 completion year would be a realistic goal.
