DILLON WINSHIP, JR. �1965 Operating- Ixpendimres -1, 10, 26G.1G Sheltering Arms provides facilities for protective care, guidance and training during the day for children-primarily of working mothers of low income. These may be extended following investigation to those having special needs. Sheltering Arms is open Mondays through Fridays 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Nursery provides care for boys 2½ to 10 years of age and for girls 2 ½ to 12 years of age. The fee for day care at Sheltering Arms is based on individual family income. Each family pays according to a fee attainable within financial limits. Most choose to be as self-sustaining as possible. The Social Worker assists the family in determining whether we are the appropriate agency to meet their child care needs and in setting a realistic fee for service. �Sheltering Arms operates year round with a staff of director, social worker, educational consultant, two center supervisors, sixteen teachers and assistants, a secretary-bookkeeper, two part-time pediatricians and five maintenance personnel. D uring the summer supply teachers are added to st aff. M ISS MARGARET L . COLBERT . . . . . . . . . . Executive MRS. LOIS HANCOCK .. . ... ...... . Educati onal Consultant MRS.

Secretary-Bookkeeper �Presidents 1?..eporf- -19G5-1966 Dear Members: How could a year be so short and yet so full of problems and pleasures for Sheltering Arms Association . If it were not for t he interest and support of each of you my job would have been an ard uous one. This you recall was the year in which we faced an operating defici t . However, friends came to our assistance and we will be able to maintain our services of the highest quality because of t heir generosity. We have 6,500 hours of volunteer service from yout h groups, garden clubs, civic clubs and our own members. They provided an enriched program for our boys and girls throughout the year. The committees all did their jobs as assigned and I am indeed grateful to each chairman for the work which you did to keep t he agency operating at top efficiency. It would seem appropriate to mention a few highlights even though each committee could not be included in my brief report. The Personnel Committee had a particularly busy year in assisting the Executive Director in replacing eight key positions. In each case we felt that we secured very well qualified persons to fill the vacancies. The salary scales have been improved each time t he budget has been presented to the Chest. �The Building and Grounds Committee has spent time, talent and funds on repairs and redecoration of Osgood Sanders Center and Play Equipment needs were met at Dorothy Arkwright Center. The Wayside Garden Club, Magnolia Garden Club and the Atlanta Junior League have made substantial contributions for capital expenditures. Social Work Advisory Committee assisted our new Social Worker in orientation to the agency. They set up procedures for an annual review of each client to set fees for service. We are most careful to adhere to health and sanitation regulat ions and to serve adequate, well balanced meals which our Nutrition Committee r.ecommends. Our clinics are operated by qualified Pediatricians and the Medical Committee carries out their suggestions. The Finance Committee built and structured the operating budget for providing service to the 350 different children in our care last year . This was done at a cost of $2.40 per day per child. We are justly proud of our economical operation of our two facilities. The United Appeal is our chief source of income and we are indeed grateful for their understanding and support of our high quality of day care services in t he community. To serve as your President has been a source of great pleasure to me and I do wish t o thank everyone who has made my year a happy experience. I particularly enjoyed the privilege of working with our fine Executive Director, Miss Margaret Colbert. Sheltering Arms had a richer program because of the active interest of our Board of Directors and the splendid service of our entire staff. Sincerely, Mrs. Harry L.

GLAD I N, Dir ec tor December 20, 1967 Mr . Rodney Cook 34 10th Street, N . E. Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Rodney: This letter is in response to one sent by Senator Dan McIntyre to Mayor Allen about the traffic: problem in Buckhead . His major concern is the proposed implementation of the Buckhead loop by Fulton County. As you may remember the Buckh ad loop was conceived by this department and totally rejected by Buckheod . However, In passing the 163 Bond Issue, th people in Buckh ad convinced the County to include some prefects that, in ff ct, do begin creation of portions of the loop at a low r level of rvice, i.e., collectors rather than limited ace $S freeways, As th present time Bill McGeorge. of Fulton County Public Works is actively pushing for completion of the loop up to a point (Se I on Figure I) . He ha be n working with us on it and has a ked for our support which we are now pr par d to giv with som r servations and conditions. One r s rvotion is that the propos d north t rminus ot Wieuca Road will probably create more problems that it will solve. The loop shou Id be brought back into ochtr e Road or at I t to P achtr e Dunwoody (Se 2 on Figure 2) . The cond r aervation cone rns proposed widths which vary from two to thr e to four Ian s. Th rood should be a coll ctor with a uniform four Ian s · from beginning to nd. Th bridging of f-()56 north (North Fulton Expr ssway) should reflect this width. Last, but not least, our support is condltlonol on a full und rstanding of our complete position. This loop may h Ip Buckh ad•s interval circulatlon problem but that is about all. It is not soluti n to the Peachtr Road corrldot traffic pr I m which begins fn D Kalb County and ends south of ookwood St tion. (Se attach d r on Buckhead traffic probl m nd Figure 2, e clally No. 2). I y this to �Mr . Rodney Cook 2. December 20, 1967 attempt to establish priorities . The overall benefit to the total community is Iimited . Since capital improvement funds are in very short supply, they should be spent on pr iorities which are more urgent in nature and w ii I resu It in greater overall benefit . I am su re that you are aware the City is actively participating in and receiving data from the Atlanta Area Transportation Study . Up to now, this has been conducted\ \ mostly by technicians with little involvement by pol icy makers . Recently, a polrcy committee was formed of which the Mayor i a member . I sent you a short paper on this'for your consideration . The nature ~f the Buckhead problem, in fac t many of the traffic problems throughout the City, such as Campbellton Road , and the patchwork manner in which they a re being handled leads me to soy that some more log ical, comprehensive approach must be adopted by pol icy makers for considerfog our transportation problems. \I ,\ ,, . ,\' Sincerely, \ Collier B.

Several people have inquired about the proposed Buckhead Loop which would relieve the traffic on Peachtree north of the Roswell Road-Peachtree intersection. This loop was i ntended to connect the Lenox Square area with the Buckhead area without crowding the Peachtree road itself. With the new Phipps Center on the old Alexander property, the problem will be impossible unless something i s done. It is my understanding that the County has reconnnended a plan, but when your Planning Department was consulted no one could tell me of any definite progress in this area. I talked to Rodney Cook this morning and he was very opposed to the County plan, but in order to relieve the condition the city will have to come up with some counter plan. This problem is tooaccute t o remain unresolved. I have tried to talk to Collier Glad~en several times but have been unable to contact him, but it does appear to me that the City Planning Department should immediately tackle this problem and come up with a constructive workabl~ solution to the traffic problem in the Buckhead area. If I can do anything to help, please let me know. Sincerely, ~~ DaHf MacIntyre, III., Senator, 40th Distr i ct. DIM:ms V ~ , t.7~ ,/'>" ~ · (7() rr~ I (_,.,..,/'.

GLA DI N, Di recto r September 13, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO: Earl Landers FROM: Collier SUBJECT: City Bond Referendum (') 0...Y"\ "'-J JJ J This is, more or less, a follow-up of our brief conservation of a few days ago concerning this subject. I feel that some serious consideration should be given to the question of when would be the most advantageous time for Atlan ta to consider another general obli gation bond referendum? The funds from the last two bond issues are nearly exhausted, and the City ' s Capital Improvement Program reflects over $400 million dollars in unfunded capital improvement projects. The Planning Department can continue to prepare survey and planning applications, applications for code enforcement programs and updating of the Community Facilities Plan, however, we need some firm guide as to future financing of the se projects and facilities, plus we would like to make the Capital Improvements Program functional. There are several events that .we know will occur and others which are being considered, for example, the national elections in the fall of '68 and the city election in the fall of '69. The Transit Authority is considering, as I understand, a bond issue for financing a transit system in the fall of '68 (along with general election); the Atlanta School Board is considering another school bond issue in the Spring of '68. I am concerned that if consideration is not given soon that the right time may not be before 1970 - can we afford to wait that long? Your thought s on this matter would be e x tremely helpful. Also, I would like your opinion concerning the desirability of state legislation enabling the Mayor and Board of Aldermen to issue General Obligation Bonds without referendum, amount to be limited by State Legislature. Similar legislation has been passed for Fulton County which is awaiting approval by the voters as a constitutional amendment. jp �September 20, 1967 MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Collier Gladin From: R .

I do not argue with the HRC request. However , I believe that this function should be part of the on-going responsibility of the Planning Department. It would be a shame for us to have spent $ 750 , 000 on a Community Improvement Program and not have the capability of maintaining current data in a use able form after th e CIP project is finished . I think all of us are aware of the tremendous value of the various CIP reports. For the first time we have had information on housin~ including individual computerized information on each structure as well as projected requirements for the future. This information made it possible for us to launch the critically neede d housing program almost a .year before the complete report was finished . �Mr. Landers Page Two September 20, 1967 I am sure that we are going to find that we will be able to use the information and recommendations in other reports to implement timely action in other areas. However, unless we are able to record and document what action has been taking place and complete at least an annual review of progress with updating of our facts and figures, I am afraid the CIP will have missed its mark. I think that we also should give careful consideration as to exactly what we want the Housing Resources Committee to do - how big an operation you want to make out of it. I think the same thing holds true for every other quasi-governmental authority or agency that has been set up in the City, particularly the Atlanta Youth Council and the Community Relations Commission. It might be wise for a special committee of the Board of Aldermen to take a good look at these agencies before the budget is finalized this year. I do not mean to imply that they should be cut out or cut back. It might be decided that they are woefully underfinanced. My concern is that we all know exactly what the purpose of these agencies is and more importantly that those people who run these agencies know what the City expects of them and if we are going to continue the operation they should be given the tools with which to operate according to the wishes of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen .

Collier Gladin June 1, 1967 -2- in the United States t oday. They do not, unfortunately, reflect some of the thoughtful analysis contained in the body of the Design Report itself . Taking the points covered in the reconnnendations in the order of their appearance, we would make the following comments: (1) The statement of need "from the public and private leadership of Atlanta to a goal of a 11 designed city and to the progrom needed to achieve it" would certainly have the support of every Design Commission member. We do wish that more emphasis had been placed in the study on the development of such a progi-am. (2) The Con:anission ould agree that "Physical Design plans related to the Community Improvement Program must be carried out by the best professional designers available . 11 We would have appreciated some specific recommendations as to how this might be accomplished. For example.., believe that more us might be mad of design oo titions and we had hoped to see some discussion of whether and under what oiroumstanoes the consultant would support or oppose such procedures~ Also, some coneideration of an "awrds program" might have b en i:;rovided in the r port. (3) The Co isaion would probably support th id that stTh city must pr pal" and adopt o d sign ...growth strategy." Th r port, how r, is not too cl ar on what suoh a tr t ~ would con iet of or ho to achi ve it. (!.) (5) (6) Th Oommi s1on would most lik ly support th consul nts' reOonJm ndstiona th t de 1 n control n ed to be pro d "through stren th ning of the Subdivision and Zoni.Jlg Or-di• nc s" and prob bly that th Ci ic D sign C i sion n d to b trength n d lo, but r not too clear as to how thi 1 to b socompllshed. It would hlv. be n helpful if the Consultant could h v . prov1d d p cifie a ndm ts (in rough dr ft) for consider tion ot public offici 1 and Co is ion m bra. �Mr . Collier Gladin (7) Jme 1,. 1967 -3- The statement that "a formal design review procedure " is needed is confusing insofar as the Atlanta Civic Design Commission is serving such a function t the pr sent time. If the intent was to requir that all major private oonst ruet1on in the oity be made sub ct to suoh review, we wish it hed been stated more clearly. Under this circumstance,. we also would like t o see some consid ration of recommended limits and cut-off points fer review of private construction . (8 & 9) .Again, we wupport th r col!lmendations that a CED pl an and tree ordinance bed~ loped . e would have pref rr d to see th se itBms headipg this particular list b cause the bottom position does ap r tow ak n them. · In summary, 111e feel the report f lla short in the most important area--the are of recommendations . We are concerned both with the recommendations ctuslly pres nted and with those that were not. We beli th t the hand of public agenoiea cone rn d with d s i gn m t ters in the city would have been str ngthen d by l) a much stronger statem-nt of the case for a CBD plan; 2) a strong r commendation that a visu l survey nd design prQgram be dev loped and implement d with sp cific reco nd tions s to how this might be done, 3) a draft of pecific emendlll.ent to the subdivision ordin no, oning ordinance, build!ng cod , etc . ; 4) firm recommend tions for a tudy of the impact of ad valorem t xation on design; 5) r co nd tions for dev lopment of n incenti s program (swards or oth r) for encouraging good d sign; 6) reco endatio r arding wheth rand how deign c.om.pet1t1on might b mploy din th .turtheranc of good de ignJ 7) reoomm.endat1ona r g rding doption of ign ordinenc s 8) recomm nd tion r arding th d lopment of desi n plans tor speoU'io jor str et, e:xpr _s ys, r pid tran it st m nd public o n p c , and o forth. thinking 1 _ incorporated in thank yo for the opportunity- of renewt thi ri l. .. nr ti e, pl.ea e teel fr to 11 o u · for further ry truly yours, JO ph . • Perrin Cha1r J ' �CITY HALL ATLANTA, GA. 30303 Tel. 522-4463 Area Code 404 DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING COLLIER B. GLADIN, Director June 2, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO: Planning and Development Committee FROM: Planning Staff SUBJECT: Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2 with Candeub, Fleissig & Associates The Planning Staff has not been satisfied with the work of Candeub, Fleissig & Associates who have been responsible for the following studies: Planning, Fiscal, Economic Base/Marketability, Equal Opportunity in Housing and Design. Although this firm enjoys a national . reputation for its work in the field of planning and connnunity development, we have found their work to suffer in Atlanta for the following reasons: (1) Most of the interim and/or preliminary reports and memoranda submitted to date consists of a parroting back or rehash of locally available facts, statistics and data. Often the facts and information submitted to the consultant or generated and gathered by them have been either erroneously used or applied with little, if any, attempt made at verification prior to the incorporation in a report or memoranda. All of this appears to point to one or more of the following: inadequate research, local consultation, follow-up, and/or general negligence on the part of the consultant. (2) Based on the reports and memoranda submitted thus far, little if any attempt has been placed on analysis of the facts, their impli~ cations or consequences, or to relate one report to another. Few conclusions and recormnendations have been drawn . Where conclusions and reconnnendations have been drawn and set forth, it is difficult for the planning staff to see how, from whence, and on the basis of �Page 2 Notes and corrnnents on workshop session No. 2 what evidence, they were drawn. In short, the reader finds conclusions and recommendations drawn not predicated on facts or analysis of the facts. In reading the reports and memoranda, the planning staff has been constantly confronted by questions in his own mind of why, how and for what reasons - the answers to .which are not forthcoming by reading further. (3) In general, Items 1 and 2 apparently have led to the conclusion that many of the technical reports and memoranda could be applicable to any City USA. Most often the reader is left unconvinced that Atlanta is the City in question in each of the technical memoranda and reports. There is a general failure on the part of the consultant to relate what is being reported, discussed, concluded, or recommended with the physical, social, economic and political environment of Atlanta. The staff has employed every known tactic to encourage and to literally force improvement in the quality of their work. But, we have not seen any appreciable improvement which we would call satisfactory. Flat statements, sweeping generalizations, techniques, approaches, reconnnendations and assumptions made in today's meeting - all must be challenged by the staff and the Planning and Development Committee. The Program for Improvement Action being recommended by the consultant is heavily weighted toward physical improvement. This is probably the strongest part of the Program and basically represents materials provided the consultant by the Planning Department. The Program is weak, shallow, sketchy and in some respects not feasible on the social and fiscal facets. We have not seen much of th? economic materials to date and thus cannot comment. Consequently, the Planning Staff along with the Planning and De velopment Connni t tee should prod the consultant with the "Whys" , "Hows", and "Wher es" until we ge t satisfactory a nswer s and an accep t able Pr ogram for Improvement Action . �Page 3 Notes and comments on workshop session No.2 Set forth below are some examples of questions. These will give the committee some idea as the types of questions that should be asked the consultant: PHYSICAL --Shouldn't your recorrnnendations for renewal treatment cover the entire City, particularly those areas to the extreme North and Southwest which apparently have been omitted1 --What are the side effects 9n adjacent areas of renewal treatment in any given area? How is this overcome? --Define types of treatment; which renewal actions should be public, which private and in which areas? --How did you determine priorities and how can we best make use of this priority classification system on a continuing basis? --What is the value of your priority classification system to the Planning and Development Committee and how will it help us in making decisions for projects in various areas of the City? --What are the alternatives of your priority classification system? --What projections have been made on land needs ana resources for the future development of the City? What policy implications are involved? --How have you treated Rapid Transit and Interstate Highway Locations in this broad scale program? Should these facilities be planned to serve exi s t ing neighborhoods·, commercial and industrial areas or should neighborhoods, commercial and industrial areas conform to the physical locations of the se facilities? --What additional physical planning should the City become involved in as a follow up to your broad .scale program? --What is the reasoning of the consultant in determining the s cores assigned for each staging area? �Page 4 Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2 SOCIAL --What and how have social factors entered into your broad scale program? --What are Atlanta's socio/economic problems and how have you approached them in this program? --How do you go about getting citizen involvement in such a broad scale program? gram? How will th e citizens of Atlanta benefit from such a pro- How can we best convince them of the need fo r such a program assuming we are in agreeme~t with it? --How do social problems relate to physical problems and how can the approach to both best be coordinated? --What social costs, if any, are involved in such a large scale program? Are these social costs reflected in the overall program costs and how are they to be financed? ECONOMIC --Are your land use recommendations . based on market factors, purely suggestions for development, or a combination of these two? --What ar e the most potential markets for Atlanta, (Scientific research and other us e s for e xample) and how can Atlanta best accomodate them wi t hin t he existing City boundar ies? --Jobs , i ncr eas ing indivi dual i ncome , hous i ng and edu cation are the . - .ii<. City's mos t pr ess ing probl ems . Wha t approa ches ar e you r ecorrnnendi ng t owards re s olving thes e problems ? --How can the City implement s uch a br oad s cale program with the apparent housing shortage and fin ancial limitations which the City currently has? �Page 5 Notes and conunents on work shop session No. 2 --What is the relationship of the broad scale program to the City's overall capital needs? --What sources of revenu e (existing and potential) do you foresee the City using in financing its program? --What alternative methods of funding this program are available? What, if any, financial limitations must the City overcome in financing this program? What changes in and what additional state enabling legislation will be required?

The Planning Department is very interested in supporting Sheltering Arms and other social oriented agencies in the selection of sites to best serve this growing community. As you know, the Community Council is responsible for the coordination of social planning activities, thereby providing the City with one agency who knows the goals and activities of all the community organizations. This enables us to select sites which will allow the least chance of service overlap. I will furnish you with site proposals just as soon as possible. CG/jp �CITY OF .ATLAN :A CITY HALL ATLANTA.

Delius: The following recommendations are made for trees to be planted in the planters beside the Hurt and other buildings in downtO\-m Atlanta. These recommendations are based on the combined thinking of some of the top authorities in the south east and include s uch men as R.Ko Smith and Elmer Roth-U.S. Forest Service, John Nixon and 'l'roy Keeble - Georgia Forest Commission and several others. 1-Crape myrtl~ is the first choice. 2- -'.ora ine Locus t-about equal to the above o 3-Juniperus scopulorum (western red cedar). 4-Flowering Cra b Apple. 'de think tha t no one species should be planted entirely~ but have at l eo.st t wo or three and if t bis is followed we reco mmend the first three above. Flowering cra b i s a very attrac t ive tree, but we are wondering how people would react if the apples were to drop on t he side walk and make slippery spots when t hey were crushed. Hr. Joe Lance and I believe that if the city is to be involved in planting and . maintaining trees in planters or any other site on the stre =ts that great care be used in selecting, pl anting and tending to the trees. We recommend: 1-'.Tha t we select the s pe cific trees from the nursery that sells them. 2-That the tree roots be balled and burlap covered. 3-Tha t t he ·trees be nursery grown. 4-Tha t the soil placed in t he planters be good fria ble top soil and that ap~roximately 1/3 by volume be peat moss. 5-The trees be approximately 2 inch caliper at the base and at least 6 feet tallo I have contactad several nurseries and find that t ho se list ed in t he dir ectory are l argely dealers that obta in their stock from other areas, and none of them handle Juniperus s co pulorum. This tree ha s beautiful silver green foliage and woul d remain green all year. It would also be a nice tree to decorate for Christmas. It can be obtained through one or more of the nurseries, but all of them state that it is too late to ~yint them this late in t he season • ,~ Distribution: ,• . ' Signed _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ W. D.

'-ti e recognize that the survival of any tree that is · planted on the streets has much to contend with in the form of gas fumes from cars, changes in water available lack of space for the roots to spread, constant handling by the public etc. :•ie know that fsome of the seedlings will die regardless of how well they are tended, but if they are watered well and fertilized after being put in the planters the survival should be as good as can be expected under the conditions that v,ill exist. Inferior planting stock is expensive regardless of what the city of Atlanta pays !or itbeo~use survival is lese likely and tne s ame goes for t he c~e neede'1 in planting and oaring £or the treos Qfter they are planted.

T o : Mrs. Ann Moses From: Dan Sweat J{./ Subject: Attached memo on Downtown Trees Jack Delius is going to make another request for some overtime to provide maintenance for these trees. Even though it is the responsibility of the adjacent property owners, the fact is the trees are dying and the City is going to get the blame. Most of the original trees which were planted have been in about a year. The original ball and burlap treatment usually carries these trees for about the first year. Then as the roots break through the burlap they are on their own and this is what is occurring now. I think we should support Jack 1 s request for a few hundred dollars overtime and he can have his people take care of these trees. It is my opinion that the City might as well get geared up to maintain the trees for the great mass of adjoining property owners will never do it themselves.

Wall, President Cascade Little League 1807 Willis Mill Road, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia l Dear Mr. Wall: I I- On April 11, 1967, a delegation appeared before the Aldermanic Parks Conu:nittee to vigorously protest the cutting off of a large corner of the Cascade Little League area thereby exluding the West Manor Elementary School section and prohibiting children in that section from participating in the Little League program this sunu:ner. We were told by this delegation that the area cut off is bounded by Utoy Creek from Lynhurst Drive west to Fairburn Road, south on Fairburn Road to Cascade Road, east to Veltre Circle and Falcon Drive, and north to Gordon Road. As the Conu:nittee understands it, the ostensible reason for the above was that population had increased above the 15,000 limit imposed by Little League requirements. However, the above mentioned delegation of citizens contended that, while a group of new apartments in the southeast corner of your Little League area were included within the new boundaries , their neighborhood was omitted for ethnic reasons. I I 1 While the Conu:nittee quickly assured those present that it had no control or jurisdiction over the Little League - that, as a matter of fact, the Little League is private in all respects - the Conu:nittee does feel that since we are affording you public facilities you should reevaluate carefully your action in light of the allegations that the cutting off of the area was brought about principally due to the area undergoing a degree of racial transition. The City of Atlanta is not and will not be a party to any attempt at segregated practices where public properties a r e involved. The Department of Parks is under a Federal court order to fully integrate all property. We therefore reconu:nend, suggest and urge that you make such arrangements as are necessary to br ing the area set fo r th above back into the Little League progr am. t r uly you r s, c.~ eneral Manage r of Parks and Recreation JCD:bjw cc: All Members of the Aldermanic Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. '-Mr .

Box 7432, Station C Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Mr. Sanders: It was my pleasure meeting with you and Mr. Bill Finch on Friday, April 14 to discuss the possibility of developing a master plan for the renovation of Piedmont Park and more particularly making provisions for certain facilities nece ssary for the successful continuation of the annual Arts Festival at Piedmont Park. It would be our pleasure to work with a group of architects and landscape architects in developing the best possible plan and design for the improvement of Piedmont Park. This department's planning staff is so over-loaded at the present time that we would welcome outside assistance; and, we would be able to defray costs of blueprinting, etc. I believe that a permanent performing arts area which would include a stage, dressing facilities, audience seating, lighting and control features, etc. would be a valuable addition to the park in that it could serve not only the Arts Festival but many other groups throughout the year. Just l e t us know when you would like to meet again and to discuss at length the development of a master plan and thanking you again for your continued interest and assistance, I am Cordially, J ack C.

DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER MEMORANDUM TO: Mr. Eric Harkness, Planning Department FROM: Jack Delius, Parks Department SUBJECT: Master plan for Piedmont Park - Urban beautification program The Parks Department is very excited about the possibility of having a master plan developed for Piedmont Park, using donated services and skills of private architects and landscapers in the Atlanta area. Your urban beautification plan could be used to its fullest extent for the restoration of Piedmont Park and at the same time we could provide badly needed facilities for the Arts Festival and other canmunity groups. In the past, there has been tremendous oposition on the part of the public to any major change to be made at Piedmont Park. It is felt that no additional structures should be placed in the park if it should in fact jeopardize the wooded area, etc. The existing swimming pool has been condemed (along with four others) by Fulton County Health Department and we are on borrowed time as far as its operation. I feel strongly that by blending the talents and opinions of several of our better designers in the City we can come up with a plan which will be acceptable to the general public and at the same time preserve the chdrm of Piedmont Park. I would like very much for you to attend any and all meetings to be called by Mr. Arthur Sanders, Bill Finch, Joe Perrin, etc. of the Arts Festival of Atlanta in reference to the park . We appreciate your efforts to date towards the urban beautification program and pledge you our full suppo r t a nd cooper ation. J CD: bjw cc : Hon.

N.E. where I found the following: 1-Sapsuckers have made many holes in the trunks of loblolly pines in 4 or 5 trees in her front yard~ No evidence of insect attack exists, and there is no danger that the trees will die from the sapsuckers work. The trees are mature, but should live for years. 2-0ak trees in the yard were found to be free of any serious problem-one tree appears to have be en struck by lightening some years ago, but the area is being enclosed b:,, wound tissue, and should live for years. 3-It seems that some self styled "tree expert 11 recently told Mrs. Moore that she should have her pine trees removed because they are filled with bugs that could emerge and kill the trees in neighbors yards. The same person also told her that her o:ik s are in danager of falling and need to be removed. I assured her that neit her is a likely thing. This points out the great need we have in Atlanta to have a tree ordinance that would provide supervision of these so called 11 tree experts". and preverit them from preying upon the uninformed public. We have had several reports about unfounded insect and disease problems given to property owners by the organization that contacted Y.irs. Moore as well as other groups. ~ Distribution: FORM 34. 2 2 d~~ &4ruUU- Signed W. D. Buchanan, Entomologist �April 14, 1967 Mrs . W. M .

The Bill has now been signed into law by Governor Maddox. There has been some speculation in the press and elsewhere regarding the intentions of the Fulton County Commission in this matter, and we are issuing this statement to clarify our position. It is not the intention of the Fulton County Commission to establish and operate a comprehensive program of supervised recreation under the sole jurisdiction of the County government. We believe that the best interests of all c iti zens will be served if duplication of services between the City of Atla nta and Fulton C ounty a re ke pt to a minimum , c onsi ste nt alwa ys with good ope ration. �1 , m:il / -- A ,H ~,J ' \....i \ .1. ._-10.:,1 ~31 \OU JX 0tJ3 X .,__ rI I I -2- It is our purpose to provide park and recreational services as follows: 1. The County will try to provide suitable neighborhood parks and playgrounds in the unincorporated area of Fulton County, including ball fields, picnic ar:eas and playground equipment. We recently submitted an application for Federal assistance in the purchase and development of neighborhood and _ community parks. 2. The Commission has also recently approved a long-range com.:. prehensive plan for the purchase and development of large tracts of open space suitable for future use as regional parks and recreational areas. It is our intention to implement this plan as rapidly as funds, including State and/or Federal grants, are available. 3. We do not plan an elaborate supervised recreational program. A possible exception will be the limited program at Hammond Drive Park in Sandy Springs where the County has already requested the City of Atlanta to plan and submit a proposal for the operation of this facility when completed. 4. It is our intention to cooperate fully with the six municipalities in Fulton County having populations less than 5,000 people, in accordance with the Constitutional Amendments approved by the voters of Fulton County last November. This amendment permits the County government to provide not more than one -half the cost (not to exceed $5,000 . 00 for each municipality) of the annual cost of recreational programs within these municipalities. General guidelines for these programs are being developed in cooperation with the municipalities which have requested same. I �-~- . . U ...---- ·-·-········-······--·· A.JO~ / OtJ:3Xj ·as--··· -3- 5. The physical development of parks and playgrounds will be handled by the Department of Public Works with the assistance of the Department of Planning. The advisability of contractual arrangements with the City of Atlanta for the operation of recreational programs will be explored in each instance, as in the case of Hammond Drive Park. Where the cost is acceptable and the particular operation most efficient, we will request the City to provide services. The Commission is aware of the county-wide need for improved recreation and park facilities and services. We are attempting to meet these needs in an orderly and economical fashion within the framework of applicable laws. The newly enacted statute will provide greater flexibility, especially in the outlying communities where there are few recreational facilities of any sort. The Commission has no intention of frustrating or violating the basic objectives of the Plan of Improvement, namely, that duplication of services between Atlanta and Fulton County should be kept to a minimum. We heartily support this objective and are doing all in our power to provide services necessary to our citizens, with a minimum of cost and duplication . FULTON COUN'IY COMMISSION Jas. H .

LOKEY THOMAS F, CHOYCE JAMES B, PILCHER ASSOCIATE CITY ATTORNEYS Mr. Jack C. Delius General Manager Department of Parks and Recreation City Hall Annex Atlanta, Georgia ROBERT A, HARRIS HENRY M, MURFF CL.AIMS ATTORNEYS Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your letter of January 26, 1967 in which you advised me that you received a letter from Mr. John H. Gress, dated January 16, 1967. You then go on to quote the letter and end up by requesting an opinion from me as to the contents of the letter and such other germane documents and consequences I find necessary to investigate in the premises. To begin with, Mr. Gress is correct when he states that the original deed of conveyance from G. V. Gress to the City of Atlanta did make a recitation such as the one he alludes to in his letter. More specifically, the recitation is made in a deed of conveyance, dated April 14, 1898, between Mr. Gress and the City of Atlanta, and reads in part as follows: "It is understood and agreed that the said picture shall be used for the benefit of the whole people, and shall be kept open the year round, subject to reasonable rules and regulations, and that only a nominal entrance fee shall be charged, not to exceed ten (10) cents for each person, an d that t h e said bui ldi ng shall bear an app r opriat e sign indicating t he battle which the painting repr esent s, and a l so that i t was pres en ted to the City of Atlanta by the aforesaid party o f .the first part." 'I . • �d,,.o~ aJ______ \~ - Page 2 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 I have a photostatic copy of this deed in the event you require further inspection. With respect to the deed itself and besides the provision above quoted, the deed is what is referred to as "honest on its face", that is, we have no reason to doubt the validity of the instrument nor should we doubt its validity. Also, I am of the opinion that not only a nominal c<;: msideration was given for the picture (stated to be One ($1. 00) Dollar in the deed), but also that the additional consideration is sufficient to give rise to the theory of a deed of gift which was duly accepted by the City of Atlanta, With this in mind, the first question that poses itself is whether or not Mr. John H. Gress, who purports to be the "only living heir" of G. V. Gress, has the right to bring about a forfeiture of the picture in question. I am assuming that the portion of the letter from Mr. Gress that he is the only living heir of G. V. Gress is correct. With this as an assumption, I am of the legal opinion that no one, including Mr. John H. Gress, has the right to create a forfeiture such as he envisages in his letter. My basis for this opinion is found in the case of City of Atlanta vs. Jones, et al, 135 Ga. 376 (1910). at page 379, wherein it was in part held: "The language of the deed constituted a covenant, rather than a condition subsequent. Where an owner of land conveys it to a city, and states in the deed that it is to be used for a specified purpose, he may have such an interest as to prevent its sale or diversion from that purpose to others, or perhaps he may have an action of covenant. But such language a lone does not create a conditi on subsequent, on breach of wh ich a f orfeiture r e sul t s and the or iginal owner may recover the land . Devlin on Deeds (2d ed . ), 978 and notes; Warvel le on Rea l Property (2d ed . ) , § 317 ; Thompson v. Hart, 133 Ga. 540 (66 S. E~ 27 0) . It may be thought by many laymen that such language creates a condition subsequent, but it is well settled in law that it does not do so. If parties desire that a forfeiture shall result, or that an estate shall terminate because of the breach of a covenant or failure to use ·." �A d tl : 1 ' - '- \OtJ J Xj - .- - -- - ----------- Lil9_~~ -. ------ ··· -····-····-··- . 143.215.248.55 -- --- . ------ .·---J---- --.:-~J3J£i.- Page 3 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 the property for the purpose mentioned in the deed, they should so state." It is my opinion also that there is no language with respect to that portion of the deed dealing with the nominal fee which would give rise to a forfeiture inasmuch as no reversionary provision is contained in that portion of the deed. We now have disposed of the easy part of the opinion. The hard part is, what consequences, if any, arise from the City of Atlanta's maintaining the current admission price to see the Cyclorama? Once again, we refer to the language in City of Atlanta vs. Jones, et al, wherein it was in part held that the grantor " ••• may have an action of covenant." There is very little law with respect to a breach of covenant in Georgia and it is necessary for me to refer to other legal precedents to determine what the consequences of a breach of covenant are under these circumstances. With this as a background, I am of the opinion that the ordinary remedy for breach of a covenant is by an action at law for damages. (20 Am Jur 2d 589). However, in a proper case, equity will sufficiently enforce covenants or grant an injunction to restrain their violation. (Ibid.). Therefore, I am of the opinion without more, as will more fully be hereinafter set forth, that a proper party might bring an action against us to enjoin us from charging the fee we are now charging. The next question which addresses itself to us is: are proper parties to enforce the covenant?" "Who Pl ease bear in mind that the language of the above quo ted port i on of t he deed sta tes, " • • . the .said picture shall be u sed fo r the benefit of the whole people, and shall be k ep t open the year round, ••• and t hat only a nominal entrance fee shall be charged, not to exce ed ten (10) cents -f or each person ••.• " With this in mind, I am of the opinion that this is the type of a �-···- -----·· / AdOO,-----J .. ·' ,,·11e ) f - -- ~w ,OU 3 X ' •. Page 4 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2il/67 situation which pennits a third party to enforce a promise made for his benefit, and a covenant made for the sole benefit of a class of persons not parties to it may be availed of by an individual of that class. (20 _Am J~A92). In other words, we have a third party beneficiary contract which can be maintained in the name of any person who constitutes not only a citizen of Atlanta, or Fulton County, or the United States, but anybody in the world; which, being a rather large class, is, in my opinion, a beneficiary of the Cyclorama. Therefore, I am of the opinion that an injunction could be maintained by anybody in the world to enforce the covenant as written. I do not know exactly how long we have charged more than a ten cent admission fee to the Cyclorama. I trust that you will use your good office to detennine when this practice began. This factual detennination by you is very important in the . light of the next portion of this opinion. Although we have a technical breach of a covenant, as set forth above, I am of the opinion that the doctrine of estoppel is applicable to the situation here involved with respect to the enforcement of covenants. By this I mean that a person, or a class of persons, may be estopped by conduct from asserting a right to enforce a covenant. (20 Am Jur 2d 590). By this I mean that if we could satisfy a Court of Law that the beneficiaries of this covenant, by their inaction, acquiesced in the charge of more than a dime, this would act as estoppel to prevent them from enforcing the covenant. While acquiescence is spoken of as estoppel, strictly speaking, it is no more than a part of estoppel. By this I mean that I am inclined to believe that a Court of Law would prevent anybody from initiating an injunction against us because the entire class of beneficiaries had acquiesced to increased charges. Legally speaking, no set time is necessary to constitute estoppel such as we have in this case ; rather, it would be that amount of time which induced us to a c t to our det r i ment. It i s my thought that ten years would be sufficient, although I am reluctant to detenni ne what a Court would detennine t o be sufficient. t' · = . �'- ,,u . .> U \~ -~ - - -- ----· -- ______ l../143.215.248.55 -·-- ·- . . ···-··-·--· ··· ···--L-,!143.215.248.55..J . . .._______,___,.. . ,___, . . ·-· -···- · ···~ .·,~-}( . ~ J~ · • ,. c. Page 5 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 I know that this has been a lengthy opinion and one on which you will probably need further elaboration; however, for the purpose of recapitulation, my opinion is as follows: (1) There are no words in the deed which would give rise to a forfeiture; (2) A suit might be filed against the City of Atlanta praying an injunction be granted to prevent the further breach of the covenant by any person; (3) In the event such a suit is filed seeking an injunction, I am of the opinion that we could plead estoppel in this case due to the acquiescence by the general public from asserting the breach of the cov.enant at the time of its breach.

We propose a new playlot on Hardee Street at Aberdeen (Blue Heaven) as well as a playlot at Perry Blvd. and Lively St., N.W. (Perry Homes) and anohter playlot for Haynes and Foundry Sts. (Lighting). We deeply appreciate Mr. Rich's offer and we shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth. But, if it would be possible, we would appreciate having the funds donated for supplies, milk for the children that come to the playlots, equipment, and the expense for renting busses for transportation to-the swimming pools, Stone Mountain, Mathis Dairies, the State Capitol, etc. Of course, you have already advised me that Mr. Rich is interested only in equipment. We appreciate this very much. We estimate a cost of $ 2900. to equip.•.t . :bhe existing lots as outlined above.

I don't believe the Parlrn Department and the Board of Aldermen has acted in good faith toward the citizens living in Perry Homes. Scottscrossing, Carver~-lollywood Hills, Lincoln :-Iomas and the Bankhead Road area. Funds for the Gun Club Park !3ite were approved three years ago and additional Federal funds have been approved for Parks construction. however. there are only four (4) finished Tennis Courts on this site. I am sure Parks Director. Jack Delius and members of the Board of Aldermen are aware of the fact t~at over fifty-seven (57%) percent of the population in these communities a:::e below the age of eigh·i :een. Atlanta was able to build a Ctadium in one year. but it has re~uired three years to build four (l:.) Tennis Courts on a Park ~it:e which will serve a predominate Negro populadon. The Gun Club site would be adjacent to the huge Perry Homes Housing P=oject. The Citizens of these conmunities would appreciate a personal investigation by the Mayor concerning the reason for the serious delay in completing thic Vei'7 important public facility.

At that time, we were advised that the painting could possibly fall in the next four or five years. Already, two years of that time has passed. The City of Atlanta has not reached a decision on whether to remodel the e x isting building or replace it .with a new one and, if the latter course is followed~ where the new location should be. The undersigned is o f the opinion that a new building is needed and that it should be placed in Grant Park. Based on preliminary figures supplied to us by an architectural firm, plus the cost rendered to us by the art experts, Charles Davis has computed that it would take $3 ,. 000 , 000 to adequately f inance a new structure. Alderman Leftwich and I wish to urge the City that if a futur e bond issue is off ered to the public that one o f the high priority items to be funds necessary f or the restoration o f the painting and the proper housing o f it .

Dietl ein : Along with a numbe r of other peop le, I have received a Xerox copy o f y o ur report of February 8, 1967, dealing with the Zoo at Grant Pa r k. I appreciate you r o pinion s and concl u s io n s and f e el c e rt ain that when I select a Zoo Direc t o r that y our repor t wi l l serve as valuable ba c kground inf o rmat ion on some corre c t ive a ction whi ch may be needed. The undersigned is rela t i v e l y new i n h is j ob , h a ving become General Manager in March o f 1964; at a time when a ll o f the major zoo buildings were completed or substantially underway. I immediate ly began to request a Zoo Directo r and , as you may know, I have only recently met with succ ess when the p o sitio n was created by the City effective January 1, 19 67 . We were disappointed at the pay range; h owever, we will make every effo rt to select the most q u alified individu al f o r thi s most vi t al po s ition. I have written Dr. Reed, along with thirty o r f o rty o ther Zoo Directors, asking and advising him to pass along to any o f his interested staff the application for Zoo Director. It may be that one o f y ou gentlemen may be interested i n this position and I trust that I might hear further from you. I am r eluctant to make any change in the Zoo until I have an individ ual in charge si nce I am an admi nist rator o f eleven divisions of Ci ty g overnment and c ertainly do not profe ss to be a spec ialist in hort iculture , z oology, f ore stry, recreation, e tc. A Zoo Di rector will be able to organize and operate the Zoo to s e rve recrea tion, preservation, conservation and education. After considerable thought, and t~usting tha t you will a ccept my rema rks in the same context which I accepted your report, I would l i ke to c omment on your conclusions r eached on Page 3, paragraph 3 in referen c e to the Reptile House. Fir st of all , we are not remodel ing the Reptile House. It would take several �Mr. Donald R. Dietlein Page Two pages to des c ribe to y ou t he d if fi culties involved in the cages o f this building but basically the facts are these. The same Ar ch i tect designed t he Reptile House as did the Primate and Feline Buildings. About the time the Reptile House wa s nearing completi on, we noti ced a strong irritant in the air which caused one 1 s eye s to wa ter and a burning of the throat. It smelled like f o rmaldehyde t o me b ut we engaged a toxicologist at the Communi cabl e Disease Ce nter in At lanta to verify this. The next problem was of course what was causing the formaldehyde. We employed a wood technician, a Dr. James Rice at the University o f Georgia. Dr. Rice has spe nt most of his academic career working with particle and chip board. The cages were made of particle b o ard and it was a n atura l thing for Dr. Rice to investigate the proble~s encountered with thi s material. About this time, the c ages began t o s we ll and b loat and materials which we re one inch thi c k expanded t o l ½ inches. The d ime nsional intergrity of the c ages simply coll apsed. We refus ed to open the building to the general publi c in that, in the opinion of our legal counsel, to do so woul d be evide nce o f acceptance of the building. The Archite ct blamed the builder, the builder blamed the Architect, and the subcontractor bl a med the supprer. We have had several dozen meeti ngs over this problem and have called in e x perts in several fields. The end re sult is that we are replacing the cages with o ne s built o f fiber glass to be enclosed in an exterior grade plastic impregnated plywood . I can assure you t hat so much money is involved and the legal entanglement is so compli cated, that as Director of this department I would not be so f oolish as to allow a lay curator" carte blanche" privileges to reorganize and remodel a $38 0 ,0 00 building. I do n 1 t have that type of authori ty - thank g oodness - and don 't desire it. Cage replacement is being supervised by the City's Building Inspector, Law Department, and this depart ment. 11 11 Now as t o the statement that the Curator is a lay curator o r amateur. This reflects on the Civil Serv ice department of the City of Atlanta in that Mr. Dobbs sco red the highest among the approx i mately 16 app lica n ts f or the job. The test was conducted by a doctor of veterinary medicine, a PhD wi th his doctorates in Zoology (Reptiles ), and a c linical psychologist trained in testing. Of the 16 appli ca nts, seve ral had Ma sters Degrees but no practic a l e x perience . Mr. Dobbs is y oung and has only a high schoo l d iploma . However , he s eems to hold his own wi t h people in si milar positions a nd has made quite an impressive re cord f or the s h o r t time he has been in Atlanta. He is complete ly dedica ted to his work, was reared in a zoological environment since h i s pa r e nts are in the business, and has in eve,ry way attempted to be p ro fe s s ional as far as I . am personally co ncerned. He plans to ente r e vening college in the near future. Of course, re too received a copy of your repo r t and, to say the least, your remarks tha t he was a "lay CuDator" were cruel, e x cessive, unne c essary , a nd completely inaccurate. The damage is done, the word is out a n d I can only ·say that it is a surprise to me that three gent l e men r epresenting the National Zoological Park would make such a cap r ici ous remark without thoroughly investigating �Hr . Donald R. Dietlein Page Three the ba ckg round of the circumstances of the building and the qualifi ca t ions of the Curator. You have, in all fairness, been given some erroneous information. As t o Page 4 , paragraph 7, I am at a complete loss as to how you determ ined that there is a need to improve the cooperation bet ween the Zoo and educational system that controls the ·-science room in the Primate House. I believe you made your inspection on a Saturday and therefore would nd:have had an opportunity to meet the Te a cher assigned to the science room. I have contacted the instructor and she is at a complete loss to know exactly what y ou are talking about. She also wo~ders as to where there is a lack of cooperation between the Zoo and the educational system. She suggested that possibly that it may be at a higher echelon since it certainly does not exist at her level. I have co nta cted the Superintendent of Schools and he too is at a loss. Need less to say, vast improvements can be made in the utilization o f the Zoo as an educat±onal tool and as soon as we have a qual ified Director one of his duties will be to develop a complete educational program. I think it is worth noting that at the co nvent ion held at Houston, Texas :·.two years ago, the AAZPA recomme n ded our educational system as a guide and we were flooded with q uesti onnaires from interested zoos who wanted to include a science room in their zoological complex. Again, in all fairness to you, I believe you have been given some erroneous information. The individual who is distributing your report transmits it with a cover l etter stating that the three of y9u are very brilliant men. I am sure this is the case or you wouldn't be ·a ssociated with our . nati onal zoo if you were not top notch. I hope you are also m<=n enough to apologize to our Curator of Reptiles, and retract y our statement concerning the blank check approach to 'remodeli ng" the Reptile Building.

We have requested the fountain supplier to expedite the shipment o f the mechanism that goes in the basin. Delivery is being quoted to us from 4 to 6 weeks. I think it would be advisable to h a ve the park completely planted, the fountain in operation, and the plaque installed before having a formal dedication. The Parks Committee has not decid~d on a name for the tri angle but we are referring to it in our resolutions and in our d e partmental f iles as the Pie dmont and Harris Triangle.

DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER Mr. Charles L. Davis Comptroller City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Re: EOA's Recreation Funds Dear Charles: 1-..s you know by nm,r , Economic OJ:portuni ty tlant: slashed from their budget appropriation all funds rtaining to Recreation and therefore cancelled as of December 31, 1966 the three separate and distinct contracts under which this department of City Government carried out specialized recreation programs. These programs were namely the Neighborhood Playlot l ·rogram, Summer Recreation and Job Opportunity for Youth (Operation Champ), and recreation for senior high rise apartment dwellers. It is the opinion of the undersigned and Mis s Carmichael that the neighborhood playlot program takes priority over the t wo other projects. This opinion is one shared in by Mayor Allen. The number of playlots continues to grow as we attempt to meet the needs and demands of citizens in deprived areas. It is anticipated that Ne will shortly have a total of twenty-one neighborhood playlots, t,m of ,,'lhich involve the renting of dwellings for a year-round type operation. Since the cancellation of EOA funds, we have continued operating a few of these playlots on a part-time b asis, good •;reather permitting. The hasic expense involved is one of salaries and the rather substantial expense of renting outdoor toilets. Salaries are being charged to account 780C, Extra Help, Umpires, etc. and the renting of the portable john s is being charged to 771C. Account 780C does not contain sufficient appropriations to carry on a full time summer program at these twenty-one locations.

All other wish to advise you of all the expense that we can think of that will be encountered in the operation of these twenty- one locations. Therefore, the following is our basic and minimum requirements for the successful operation of the neighborhood playlots for the summer of 1 9 67. 'i !e �Mr. Charles L. Davis Page Three Playlots, 1967 Summer only Salaries •Je anticipate operating full time, six days a ,.reek, from 9 a.m. - 12 and 1 - 7 p.m., from Thursday, June 1 thru Monday, Labor Day, September 4. This is a ninety-six calendar day or eighty-two work day program. '::e will staff each playlot vrith at least one Community Recreation Leader making Range 34, $15.70 per eight hour day, $1. 9 6 per hour o l-.li Recreation Leaders ·will b e under the direction of a Recreation Supervisor making Range 45, $24.95 per eight hour day, $3.12 per hour. The Supervisor will work a total of 5 4 hours per week. As the above list indicates, there are approximately twenty-one playlots to operate. Of these, a total of fourteen are existing and seven are under development or the land is in the process of being leased. Each lot will have supervision for a total of nine hours per day, fifty-four hours per week, or eighty-two work days for a total of 738 hours. A total for all lots of 1 4 ,760 man hours of Community Recreation Leaders time, amounting to $38,929 .60; plus the Supervisors time amounting to $2,302.56 for a grand Recreation salary total expense of $31.232.16. (830C) Presently, four men each are ,_,rork ing thirty-two hours per pay period doing clean- up and maintenance work on the existing playlots . This fo ur man crew consists o f a Fark Foreman II, (2) Labor Foremen II, and (1) Laborer. They are paid straight ove rti me on the basis of a Park Foreman II, Equipment Operator I, Labor Foreman II, and one Laborer's pay. I ,..,ould suggest this arrangement be maintained since most personnel declined to work overtime and these individuals are willing to work. Park Foreman II earn $3.53 per hour; the Equipment Operator I is paid $1.88 per hour; Labor Foreman II is paid $2033 per hour; and the Laborer is paid $1.5~ per hour. These men will be involved in approximately ten pay periods at 32 hours per pay period times $9.23 per hour for a total of $1,453.60. {Maintenance is a twelve month item - this figure is just for the summer) Thus, total Recreation and Maintenance salary cost will be $32,686.00. 1 r.-J e will keep as many . Recreation positions vacant as possible during the winter months, thus hoping to accrue approximately $32,000 to hire additional Community Recreation Leaders as needed, in unnumbered positions, plus limited maintenance expense, during this summero �Hr. Charles L . Davis Page Four J:.uto l.llov-rance: The Supervisor ·will draw $50 per month car allo1 ,rance. A total car allowance will be for ~6 calendar days times $1.66 per day for a total of $15~.3 6 . Transportation: Last year ·we spent approximately $-1600 on transportation in the playlot program alone not counting "Operation Champ" . This year the Park s Jepartment's thirty passenger (for kids) bus will be used to the maximum. Children 1_.1ill be carried to (1) Cyclorama, Zoo, and special lecture by herpetologist; (2) State Capital, City Hall; (3) Greenhouses, Training Center, lecture on insects b y ~r.

" The above appears to solve the problem of summer operations but leaves unansi:,r ered the long and beautiful fall and spring days - and for that matter some ,.,rinter days - uhen the playlots should be operated. In addition, it appears \·1e will have t,,.,o houses rented which ,.-.rill operate the year-round as Recreation Centers in conjunction ,..-Tith the playlot program. ~Je must .:irrive at some solution as how to fund the salary, supply and rental - utility expenses involved. I 1 ·1ould hope that we i:muld not have to cut back existing and regular services in order to carry out this vital program. �Mr. Charles L.

I agree substantially with the report but Mr. Leftwich, the undersigned, and Steve Dobbs all take exceptions to the remarks made concerning Steve's qualifications. He is certainly not a "lay Curator" but is a professional in every sense of the word. Also, we take exception to the remark that we have given anyone a blank check to remodel the Reptile House.

DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER MEMORANDUM TO: Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr. FROM: Jack D9lius Thank you for your memorandum of February 22 concerning the cleanliness of the Children's Zoo at Grant Park. You are absolutely right that the area does become untidy particularly on the weekend. I propose the following corrective me a sures. The addition of about ten to. twelve tra sh receptacles strategically placed within the area ; a prisoner or extra zoo att e ndant to constantly police the general area ; the h i r ing o f a b ui ldi ng cleaner who will constantly clean the restrooms in the Children' s Zoo a s well as the other b uil d ings at Gr ant P ark . As t o the short-cutt ing across the grass and through the shrubbery, we have tr ied chain fences, sign s, e x tra shrubs, e tc. I've come to t h e conclusion that the smartest thing to do where pract ica l a nd whe re esthetics will not be injured is t o actu a lly pave the p ath s the way people are walki ng. This is being d o ne in the deve lopment of a lot o f our modern p arks and so we propose t o try i t o n a limited bas i s o f the Children's Zoo and then go i nto it ful ly if it prove s practical.

I have had a number of people complain to me about the cleanliness of the Children' s Zoo at Grant Park. From personal observation, I would say that it is maintained not on an unclean basis, but an untidy basis. I think perhaps some of the untidiness is brought about by the he vy density of traffic on certain days , plus the fact that in many instances they are short-cutting across the grass and through the sh•ubbery, rather than staying on the walks . I would ugge t that you eonsid r a simple single tr n of link chain to prevent people from walking across certain areas. S condly, that you in titute a con tant clean-up, pick•up service in the e particular areas to be certain that there are never any ign of untidine such as cigarette butts, gum wrapper , paper, etc. lAJr:am �February 10, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO Jack Delius FROM Ivan Allen, Jr . I have a note that the Parks Committee asked that I receive a portion of the minutes held on January 10th. Please instruct the Parks Committee that I am to receive the complete minutes from each meeting. IAJr:am �January 10, 1967 The regular monthly meeting of the Aldermanic Parks Committee was held January 10, 1967, at 2:00 P.M. in Committee Room #2 , City Hall. Present were Messrs. Buddy Fowlkes , Q. V. Williamson, and Everett Milli can. Also present were Messrs. Jack C. Delius, Stan Mar tin, F. W. Boswell, J. D. Chamblee and Thomas F. Choyce, Associate City Attorney. The minutes o f the previous meeting were approved. 4 Mr. Choyce advised the Committee that Mr~ Henry L . Bow.den, City Attorney, had turned over to him the matter o f the loco~otive, which wa s originally placed at Southeastern Fair Grounds by the Parks Department. He further advised that, legally, the locomo tive still b-elongs to the City of Atlanta. Mr. Millic an made a motion that the City claim its title to the train and a sk the Atlanta and West Point Railroad to find a suitable location for temporary storage. Mr. Millican added that the Parks Departmen t shou ld contact the Southwestern Corporation to see if the train may be placed as an exhibit in Six Flags Over Georgia, the City at all times retaining title to the locomotive. Mr. Williamson seconded the motion which was duly carried. Mr. Choyce also informed the Committee that the Parks Department does, in fact, have the right by virtue o f dedi cation to use for park p ;.1rposes the triangular parcel of p rope rty at Tremont Drive. Mr. Choyce stated that he had obtained a deposition from ~arie Coney, who stated in part that, when she was sold treproperty that she n ow owns, she was told that this triangular piece of property was to be used for a park for the children in the neighborhoo d . She furthe r stated that she had lived there since 1949 and had always tho'..1ght of this property as being a park. A Mr. Bennett, who sold the property to Marie Coney, has said that he would also be wil ling to give a deposition. The Com..~ittee directed Mr. Delius to obtain an accurate survey of the property before a final decision as to its use is made. · Mr. Delius presented a resolution to pay Mrs. Josephine Davis, Recreation Leader, an employee of the departm,ent since 19 46, time lost due to illn~ss, in addition to her accumulated sick time, not to exceed sixty days beginning December l, 1966. This resolution was a pproved by the Committee. Mr. Delius presented a letter from Mr . s. A. Furlong, dated Janua ry 1, 1967, requesting that retirees be allowed to play golf at a reduced rate of . 75¢. The Committee took no action on this request and asked that the letter be filed. M:i: - . De liu s advised the Commi ttee that he had received a note from ~r. Tom Bradley, Evangelist, thanking him f or his 1966 park pass and ask ing that the pass be renewed for 1967. The Committee denied this request. �L. .. ,.._..,_ .. ···- ·- --- - ---- - Page Two Mr. Delius reiterated the fact that all EOA funds for recreation have bee n cut off as of December 31, 1966. Mr. Delius f urther explained that we have been opera ting under three different contracts with EOA funds - senior high rise program, neighborhood playlot program, and sum~er recreation program (Operation Champ). Mr . Delius stated that EOA has now asked that the City assume their recreation programs. Mr. Delius inform3d the Committee that it would be impossible for the Parks and Recreation Department to continue to carry on the three programs we have operated i n the past on City funds alone without curtailing other existing recreation programs. He stated that the senior high rise program already has been terminated. Mr. Millican directed Mr. Delius to write a letter to Mr . Charles Davis, City Comptroller, with copies to the Mayor and all members of the Finance Committee, setting forth in itemized form the expenses involved in continuin-J these pro9rams, st ressing the fact that these activities will have to be curtailed unless financial help is fo~thcoming, and asking for their direction in this matter. · 1 There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting was adjourned.

These programs were namely the Nei ghborhood Playlot frogram, Summer Recreation and Job Opportunity for Youth (Operation Champ), and recreation for senior high rise apartment dwellers. It is the opinion of the undersigned and Miss Carmichael that the neighborhood playlot program takes priority over the two other projects. This opinion is one shared in b y Mayor Allen . The number of playlots continues to grow as we attempt to meet the needs and demands of citi zen s in deprived areas . It is anticipated that we wi ll shortly have a total of twenty- one neighborhood playlots, tNo of ,,,hich involve the renting of dwellings for a year-round type operation. Si nce the cancellation of EOA funds, ,..,.e have continued operating a few of t h ese play lots on a part -time basis , good ;reather permitting. The ba si c expense involved is one of salaries and the rather substantial expense of renting outdoor toilets. Salari e s a re being charged to account 780C, Extra Help, Umpires, etc. and the renting of the portable johns is being charged to 771C. Account 780C does not contain sufficient appropriations to carry on a full time summer program at these twenty-one locations. 1 For your information, the following playlots either exist or are under construction or in the negotiating stage; �Mr. Charles L.

I would like to suggest to the Atlanta Civic Design Commission that you recommend an appropriate display area in the chambers for the many portraits of former mayors which are now hanging _ on the first floor and in some of the committee rooms. May I also suggest that consideration be given to the renovation of these portraits, which may not be artistically well done in your opinion, but are an important part of the city's history. Further thought may also be given to having portraits commissioned of those mayor's not presently painted. I would appreciate receiving your views on these subjects. IAJr:am

  • Text: HISTORIC HOUSE MUSEUM CORPORATION Post Office Box 1 Atlanta Georgia 30301 March 4 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen Jr Mayor, City Hall Atlanta Ga Dear Mayor Allen: Thank you for your kind inquiry of January 24 regarding the property at 327 St Paul Avenue S E. This is the L P. G¥ant home. At the time it was built about 1850 it was near the center of 3,000 acres owned by COlonel Grant. This was approximately the same area which you propose to renew. We apologize for delaying reply, but we had hoped to have a pérsonal interview. Since this has not been convenient, we send this letter so that you can move ahead with any plans you have in connection with the renewalyproject. When the historians told you that this is an important house in Atlanta's history they may not have told you the most important event in the histpry of this landmark. This event was Margaret Mitchell and her book "Gone with the Wind". The full story of Margaret Mitchell's association with this house probably will not be told until I publish my "FOrbidden Blography of Margaret Mitchell" which cannot be published in the lifetime of Stephens Vitchell, the writer's brother. Tye true story depicts her brother and her husband as rascals. They conspired with others and seized control of her fortune.:She was frustrated in her own plans to restore the Grant House and make # it a public museum. If she had completed her planS Atlanta would have received a cherished mementog’ of the author provided by the writer herself, a true memorial. Oakland Cemetery, the site of Fulton Bag,and of course Gpant Park were once part of the land attached to the present house. The house is of brick and fieldstone, and structurally sound despite its appearance, Margaret Mytchell and I purchased the property 27 years ago to prevent it being converted into tenements. Our original restoration plans included purchase of 14 frame dwellings in the same block, razing them and using the entire block for gardens and parking area. The 14 houses are on small lots and probably could be bought for an average of gm $5,000 each. We placed title in Historic HOuse \WUseum Corporation which under its charter and under Georgia law is taxfree. Assistant City Attorney Charles Murphy, however, very stubbornly required us to pay taxes until we recently went into court and put the Tax Com-issioner under a restraining order, This attitude on the part of the City had prejudiced us against any negotiations with the city, but we will not hola this against you, We are delighted to learn that at least someone in the city has interest in preserving a landmark. We had thought the only interest the Ojty had was in the possible tax revenue. (more ) HISTORIC HOUSE MUSEUM CORPORATION Post Office Box 1 Atlanta Georgia 30301 (2) Our bre uct oe against the City also stems from Mayor Hartsfield's administration. Mr Hartsfield wanted to operate a Gfant House museum in connection with G,ant Park Cychorama. & big oak ip, front of the Grant House shows on the disfant horizon in the pai ing. HOwever, Mir Hartsfield disrupted neggffiations when he hinted that he would take the property by condemnation. Ve do not wish to show the interior of the house until we can remove our 10,000-volume library and other belongings. We nsed 12 months for moving, but we will start immediately. We recently refused an offer of $40,000 because the buyers intended to convert the hpuse into apartments, We always have held the property for regoOration and preservation. We have refused to rent it for fear tenants would damage it. The house occupies a lot 100 by 240 feet, extending through the block from St Paul to Orleans Street. T4e lot is about one third of the block in area. Ip you care to buy the property sight unseen and within the next 60 QeyS we would be willing to: 1. ACcept $40,000. 2. Throw in suitable antique furniture which we value at $20,000. 30 prep our claim for $1,600 back taxes and dismiss the present litigation. In our efforts to preserve the house we have passed up $75,000 in pOssible rents. Any funds which we derive from sardine property would be used for restoration and preservation of other landmarks. Tf you wish to go into other details, please write and we will call for appointment. We do not have a telephone. With cordial good wishes HISTORIC HOUSE MUSEUM CORRBORAZION Boyd Bugene aylorY Trust

  • Text: DESIGN CRITERIA Atlanta Civic Design Commission This design criteria is a guide by which the Atlanta Civic Design Commission can objectively and analytically review the urban design merits of a proposed architectural project. It is a tool both for the reviewers and the architect submitting work. Hopefully, this review process will encourage architects, other design professionals and developers to better relate their individual projects to the overall urban environment. l. How ae does this project. relate to the man on foot? Does the relation of the building to the street and to adjacent buildings create meaningful pedestrian spaces - plazas, squares, courts, atriums? Are the exterior spaces pleasant in all seasons? Is there a feeling of enclosure? Is there shade in summer and protection from icy blasts in winter? Are there a variety of spaces - intimate as well as large ones? Are a rich variety of experiences perceived when moving through the space - events, focal points and surprises? Is everything seen at one glance or does the pic-— ture unfold as one circulates through? Does the landscape archi-- tecture bring the space more to human scale? Does this project separate pedestrian from automobile traffic? Does the building provide to the pedestrian a real sense of entranzc~ clear and identifiable gateways, a place td reflect? does this project relate to man in automobile? Is there a clear and identifiable automobile entrance? Does tho entrance's architectural form express entrance or is a sign necessary? Is the walk from parking safe, eventful and human? Is the entrance from the parking side designed as an important entrance? Is the parking area a sea of asphalt carried to the street or is it broken up by landscaping, changes of levels or other devices? Are the edges of the parking area landscaped or screened? On parking decks, does natural light penetrate lower levels? What is the quality of artificial lighting on parking decks? Are number and location of curb cuts - egress/ingress points - detrimental to traffic flow? How does the top of a parking deck appear from taller buildings? How does this project relate to contiguous environment, to the general neighborhood, and to the city as a whole? ae b. Does it have respect for adjacent buildings? Does it harmonize or contrast? If it contrasts, does its use justify this degree of importance (such as a municipal, civic, religious building, or an outstanding institution) ? If it relates by harmonizing, does it echo similar materials, colors, textures, rhythms (structural bays, solids to voids, window groupings), similar proportion, similar details such as arches, cornices, corbeling, string courses, brick coursings and jointing? Does it have respect for its neighbors or does it scream out "look at me", Is it quietly sophisticated, understated, or is it ostentatious and showy. What kinds of "humanization" factors are present? Does the building make an aesthetic and functional contribution to the city? What is the quality of its landscape architecture? What is the quality of art, sculpture, murals or reliefs? What is the quality of the exterior lighting? What is the quality of the street furniture, graphics and heraldry? What kind of "street life" will this project generate? Be b. Will its uses create life and activity as many hours a day as possible? Will its uses look out on the street and will it be visually open from the: sidewalk? Does its use generate an intensely and diversely used area? Oo. What architectural character does the project have? a. Is it expressive of its use? b. Is there a feeling of permaneney? ec. Will it age gracefully? d. that is the main idea, its design concept, its philosophical base? What new statements does it make? e. Is it an honest expression of our region's culture, climate, technology? ff, See 1.a., dey @. 7. Is the building in an important Urban Design area as established by the visual survey?

  • Text: MINUTES ATLANTA CIVIC DESIGN COMMISSION SEPTEMBER 22, 1966 The regular meeting of the Atlanta Civic Design Commission was held Thursday, September 22, at 2 p.m., in Committee Room #4, City Hall, with the following members present: Chairman Sam‘tl Inman Cooper, Vice- Chairman Joseph $8. Perrin, Mrs. Alvin M. Ferst Secretary; Messrs. Paul Muldawer Harry J. Baldwin Julian Harris. James H. Dodd, John C. Gould, and Mrs. Edith Henderson. Guests were: Messrs. Edgar E. Schukraft and Eric Harkness. Minutes of the September 8 meeting were approved. Chairman Cooper read to the Commission correspondence between Mr. Frank G. Ethridge and Mayor Ivan Allen regarding a commemorative in Atlanta to the Honorable Dean Rusk, Secretary of State. Mayor Allen referred this matter to ACDC with the request that it render a decision as to a proper location for the proposed commemorative. The Chairman read a letter from the Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal regarding its third quarterly meeting, and gave a brief mmary of the meeting of the Urban Beautification Program which he attended on September 15. Mr. John Gould, ACDC's official contact with the Planning Department on the Urban Beautification Program related his meeting with Mr. Eric Harkness for a progress report of the Beautification Program. With the concurrence of the Commission, Mr. Gould stated he will invite Mr. Ellsworth Doresky, Community Planner with the Housing and Urban Development, to meet with the Commission, A report was given by Mr. Muldawer, chairman of the committee handling the development of the "old city" area under Alabama Street and hereafter referred to as the "Terminus Committee." He stated that Mr. Eric Harkness had found no problems that would effect the underground | development as far as the City is concerned. Mr. Muldawer further stated that after discussing this proposed development with Mr. Reese Cleghorn of the Atlanta Journal, the latter had written an editorial on the "under ground city", which was published in the Journal on September 21 This article was passed around to members present for their review. Mr. Muldawer stated that he had on this date received several telephone calls in favor of the idea. Mr. Perrin stated that he would like to see this developed By private enterprise, if possible, and feels that Mr. Jim Townsend should be pursued for sketches to arouse public interest. Messrs. Muldawer and Perrin will arrange to meet with Messrs. Townsend and Daniel of the Atlanta Magazine for said sketches. In pursuance with the Mayor's request, the Commission discussed possible locations for the Dean Rusk commemorative. It was brought out that since Mr. Rusk had attended the Lee Street Elementary School and Boys High, these sites might tie in for a possible location. Dedicating the "Ugly Triangle" to Mr. Rusk was also suggested. The Chairman was re- quested to write the Mayor on behalf of ACDC favorably to the commemorative, but without committing itself to a location at the present time. -3- The Chairman introduced to the Commission Mr. Edgar E. Schukraft. hada of the Urban Renewal Committee for the West End Project. Mr. Schukraft and the Commission reviewed the developments in the West End ReeWAT Project, which was started in 1956, and a publication dealing with it was distributed. Upon Mr. Schukraft's request for the Commission's opinions, it was suggested that the development of a design criteria would be a good idea for West End. ACcDC feels that there could be improve- ments made generally that would have a total effect over the area, rather than block after block of rehabilitation. In regard to the Rusk commemorative, Mr. Schukraft stated that the Lee Street Elementary School is being moved to a new location. and a shopping center will be erected on the old school site He urged the Commission to consider the shopping center mall for the location of the memorial. On behalf of ACDC, the Chairman thanked Mr. Schukraft for his appearance before the Commission, Mr. Eric Harkness was welcomed to the meeting. At this point, the Commission discussed the lack of submissions of architectural plans for review, as requested in the Commission's letter of last June. Mr. Baldwin made the motion for the Chairman to write the City department heads and urge their cooperation in submitting plans in their preliminary stages. The motion was unanimously carried. The meeting was adjourned at 4 p.m. Ann Butler Recording Secretary

I had been looking forward to seeing you and expressing my ideas on the project, but communication became confused when the original meeting date was changed. | believe the restoration and reactivation of this area will help make Atlanta one of the unique and exciting urban areas in the country. It can: 4 Provide a historic area, which Atlanta is lacking. - Philadelphia's Independence Mall generates $400,000,000 a year 2. Give the city a tourist attraction second to none. - St. Louis has "Gaslight Square" - Chicago has "Old Town" - New Orleans has the "Latin Quarter" - Los Angeles has "Ports O Call" - Nashville has "Printer's Alley" 3. Provide an exciting, all-weather entertainment and restaurant center for local businessmen as well as tourists. = It is convenient to downtown, including Rich's, First National Bank, Georgia State College, the Governmental Center, the Stadium, and motels in the Butler Street area. - lt will support convention facilities - It can have an unique atmosphere day or night Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. October 24, 1966 Page 2 The Underground could be transformed into a place of fantasy and excitement offering a wide variety and choice of activities. There could be restaurants, saloons, night clubs, gift shops, gourmet shops, antique shops, one-of-a-kind shops, studios, galleries and small theatres. There could be a complete restoration of the Victorian store fronts and interiors, horsedrawn surries, gas lights, cobblestone streets, policemen in old-time cos- tumes, an old-time steam engine on the tracks could be used as a restaurant, and more. The city can assist in: = supporting the idea, - taking action to declare this area a historic area, thus controlling design, - including the area as part of the city beautification program and possible urban renewal program. The city could provide public improvements in order to spark private enterprise to do the bulk of the development. After Reece Cleghorn's editorial was published, we received a rash of calls and letters, including individuals who wanted to invest in this project. Enclosed is some correspon- dence indicating the interest already generated. We feel that this project would be good for the city financially as well as image wise. It has great popular appeal and could be accomplished relatively inexpensively and in a short period of time. We hope you will give this idea your full consideration and support. If | can be of any further assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call. Sincerely, aud Paul Muldawer Chairman, Terminus Committee Atlanta Civic Design Commission PM:nm Encl.
