Mega-events such as the Olympic Games offer cities the opportunity to attract economic development and to market themselves on a global scale. Decisions made by business and public leaders as they prepared to host the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games resulted in the relocation of many public housing residents and in frustration among low-income neighborhoods as revitalization efforts failed to meet expectations. Some progress was made in housing development in downtown Atlanta as well as in neighborhoods closest to Olympic venues. However, as other cities compete to host similar events, they can learn from Atlanta's experience and provide better planning as well as more resources to redevelop their low-income neighborhoods.
