One hundred miles or one hour away, Macon sits south of Atlanta. Macon is stated as having its own metropolitan area, and in no shape form or fashion is considered an Atlanta suburb. Yes there are many commuters that go from here to Atlanta everyday, but this does not NECCESSARILY mean Macon is an Atlanta suburb. As Atlanta continues to stretch south and Macon north some people and organizations are starting to think Macon is an Atlanta suburb. Organizations like the (SCL) South Coast League of Professional Baseball (Minor League Baseball Organization, with teams like the Macon Music, and South Georgia Peanuts).

Well in a statement to the local Macon news station 13WMAZ, SCL stated that I quote "The League has announced that the League Headquaters will be moved from the current location in Conyers Georgia to the Atlanta suburb of Macon, they later went on to say "Locationg the League Offices in Macon allows us the opportunity to remain in the suburban metro Atlanta area while utlitzing historic Luther Williams Field as a base for league activities". Macon is not a suburb by assocation.

The way I see it, Macon`s reputation cant be hurt any more than it already is by being associated with Atlanta.
