As 4t seems nather odd that this gentkeman would wait through the months of JuLy, August and September before he advised us that he had not received his membership cand, we hesitated to fonward him another one, Mn, Granger has promised to forward us the cancelled check, at which time we wih be happy to give him a membership card and make up the time he Lost due to some error or misunderstanding, This type thing has happened before in this department and we have found that the individual coukd not produce a source of prook of his ever having purchased a membership. Therekore, we must have evidence before we can 4545ue memberships.

When this happens I have to send my children to stey at my mother un- til we can get the house dry from the water. My baby hes taken pneu- monia from the House being flooded in the lest rains. Dear Sir, I have called the Sewage: end Park Depertments concerning the problen, but I have got no results from the departments. The ditch needs to be gue deeper or something so that the water will not be overun with water during a rain. If wou can give me any kind of help to stop the the water from flood- ing my house I would Appreciate your hehp.. I feel that you will help me with my problem. Sincerely yours, eke ee Hg

RESPESS ASST. CHIEF OF CONSTRUCTION RAY A. NIXON Chief of Construction ROBERT H. MORRISS MEMO ASST. CHIEF OF CONSTRUCTION : TO: Ray A. Nixon = Director of Public Works FROM: Ken Lancaster As directed, an investigation was made at #555 East Anthony Street "N. W. to determine if we could be of assistance in the solution of a flood problem. We found that storm water from the streets does not flow into this drain ditch, and, therefore, responsibility by this Department can- not be justified. However, there is a great volume of storm water flowing into this ditch from City property belonging to the Parks Department. I believe, it would relieve the problem of this ditch overflowing onto this person's property if this water was intercepted and directed to Proctor Creek. This could be accomplished by constructing a bunker at the top of the small ditch bank or by the grading of a small berm ditch parallel to the existing one. RKL/pae ATLANTA THE DOGWOOD CITY

Oe A— ; UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR NATIONAL PARK SERVICE WASHINGTON, D.C. 20240 IN REPLY REFER TO: H30-HH June 6, 1967 . Mr. Jack C. Delius General Manager of Parks and Recreation Department of Parks Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Delius: This is in reply to your letter of May 24,. addressed to the Regional Director of our Southeast Region, regarding the Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta. I think it would be reasonable to assume that the painting itself, as an object important in American history, could eventually be considered for inclusion on the National Register which is to be expanded under the provisions of Public Law 89-. 665, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. To be placed on the National Register and thus eligible for Federal matching grant-in-aid funds, the painting would have to be included in a statewide survey and historic preservation plan approved by the Secretary of the Interior. The Georgia His-: torical Commission has been designated by Governor Maddox as Georgia's official State liaison with the Department of the Interior in the administration of this act as it may relate to the State of Georgia. While Congressional action on the Department's appropriation for fiscal year 1968 has not been completed, it appears unlikely at this time that there will be any Federal matching grant-in-aid funds available under P.L. 89-665 during fiscal year 1968. We are enclosing a copy of the act and a copy of "Federal Financial Assistance Through the Secretary of the Interior for Historic Preservation" for your information. i Sincerely yours, lt. lee Robert M. Utley Acting Chief, Office of Archeology and Historie Preservation Enclosures 2

Rich Rich's, Inc. 45 Broad Street Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Rich: I would like to give you a brief report on the outstanding suctess of the portable swimming pools your foundation was gracious enough to provide to the City of Atlanta. From June 9 through September 1, 1967, we hed trained 153 classes which had a total enrollment of 2796 children. In addition, some 23,077 participated during "play periods". Now that fall is here we have removed the swinming pools from their outdoor locations and already three of the four have been installed in the basements of various schools where showers and drainage are available and they will continue to be utilized through the school year. The structures sustain virtually no vandalism (several other cities had terrible experiences) and we fully expect to place them back in operation come next summer. Your donation fortunately was sufficient enough to provide heaters to raise the water temperature so there's no problem there when cold weather sets in. We don't really know how to estimate the life expectancy of the portable pools but we can certainly say with a great deal of assurance that literally hundreds of thousands of children in the coming years will enjoy something that would not have been possible had it not been for the generosity of the Rich Foundation, Sincerely, Jack C, Delius General Manager of Parks and Recreation JCDi1g CC: Honorable Ivan Allen, a

Hills School in Bedford- Pine Urban Renewal Area; a park site in the Western portion of the Rawson-Washington Urban Renewal Area; and, a park site in the Rockdale Urban Renewal project. Our best information from the City Comptroller is that these park sites must be purchased and are part of the overall Urban Renewal projects for the respective areas of the City. The rather limited funds that are left after the purchase of these properties have been very carefully allocated to a number of urgent projects on the southside, westside, and northeast side of our City. The suggested priority list of projects has been submitted to the Park Committee of the Board of Aldermen and, through the City Comptroller to the Finance Committee of the Board of Aldermen. We expect to have a called meeting of the Parks Committee in a few days after the members have had time to review and digest the project list. Regarding your request to meet with me on Tuesday, July 25, I would certainly be glad to meet with you but I think it would be best for you to discuss your requests with the Parks Committee of the Board of Aldermen since they have the final say-so on priorities, etc., pertaining to Park and Recreation facilities. You may care to correspond with Alderman Charlie Leftwich, the Chairman of our Committee and, of course, Alderman Williamson, (Cont'd) XERO {xero!

October 10, 1967 Mr. Jack Delius Department of Parks and Recreation City Hall City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Delius: I have today forwarded to Mr. Sam Wilhoit of AzTec Films a copy of my master tape of the current Cyclorama narration. I passed on to him your suggestions that the long introduction be removed from the front of the tape with a view toward placing them at the end, if at all. I am sure he will be in touch. I have a perfect master so there is no problem about reproducing copies as long as you continue to utilize thisparticular narration. Of course, as with the original script, production and music, there is no charge on my part. I would hope that eventually an entirely new presentation could be produced. That old painting should be given the benefit of the advanced state of the art of audioanimatronics with stereo music and automatic lighting to draw more of those Yankee dollars through the turnstiles. I might even do the job myself for a lifetime pass to come back and see it every now and then. Best to you all in that great adopted city of mine.

The Committee directed that we bring this matter up for a formal decision at the regular : meeting scheduled for August 15, 1967 at 2:00 p.m. in Committee Room No. 2 of the City Hall. Members of the Committee further asked that I correspond with you and invite you to attend this meeting in the event that you would like to express an opinion on the best location for the Cyclorama. If it should be inconvenient for you to attend on August 15 and you would care to write the undersigned, it would be my pleasure to_ present your views and opinions to the Aldermen. We particularly - appreciate your continued interest in the Cyclorama which is — obviously our most valuable physical historical possession and trusting you can attend on August 15, I am ' ; Jack C.

Earl Landers, Administrative Assistant to the Mayor XERO Sx RO vet ’ Ao eee ga CO’ aay ee ed COPY gg ee _ Bae July 26, 1967 A Called Meeting of the Aldermanic Parks Committee was held on Wednesday, July 26, 1967 at 2:00 p.m. in the Conference Room of the City Hall Annex. Present were Aldermen Charlie Leftwich, Buddy Fowlkes, Q. V. Williamson, and G. Everett Millican. Also present was Mr. R. Earl Lander, Administrative Assistant to the Mayor, Mr. Charles L,. Davis, City Comptroller, Mr. Woody Underwood of the Comptroller's Staff, Mr. Eric Harkness of the Planning Department, and Messrs. Jack C. Delius, Stan Martin, A. P. Brindley, and Stan Ayer, of the Parks Department. Chairman Leftwich stated that the primary purpose of the called meeting was to discuss the recent allocation of some $350,000 by the Finance Committee to the Department of Parks for emergency—type activities in the Parks Department. Mr. Leftwich explained that the funds were °° allocated only for capital improvements, etc. and were not intended to be for operating costs and other everyday items. Mr. Leftwich distributed a preliminary list of priorities drawn up by the Park Staff. A considerable discussion took place by members of the Park Committee as to just how priorities should be established and the best ways to spend the fund. It was unanimously agreed that whenever and wherever possible the money should be utilized for projects qualifying under 50% aid assistance from the Federal government through either the Land and Water Conservation Act or the Open Space Program. Although additional park lands are desperately needed and should be purchased while still available, it was generally felt by the Committee that the funds should be spent on Parks already purchased and owned by the City of Atlanta so that these facilities might be placed in service at the earliest possible date. The City Comptroller has pointed out that the City of Atlanta is officially committed to the purchase in the immediate future of an Urban Renewal Park Site in the Western portion of the Rawson- Washington Urban Renewal Area and a park site adjacent to the W. C. Hills School in the Bedford-Pine Urban Renewal Area. Other urban renewal park sites were considered too far off in the future to commit funds at the present time. Alderman Williamson felt that the Peyton Road Project should be deferred at this time since it is ina middle class community and not a disadvantaged area. The General Manager pointed out that Peyton Road was the only park site purchased under the 1963 Bond Program that had received no development or allocation of funds and while in principle the majority of the funds should go to disadvantaged areas of the City, some development should start on the Peyton Road Site. Alderman Fowlkes expressed an opinion that all the funds should be used for development, an opinion generally expressed by the General Manager. Alderman Millican stated that one of the best ways to use the money would be to light ball fields for night-time use. The following list was finally decided upon and received the unanimous approval of the Parks Committee: (Cont 'd) KERO! [xXERO *FRO! cory | corny trey = = =< —= — fr 3.

TOTALS 700,000 350,900 350,009 The last item on the proposed budget, number 11, concerns the purchase of additional park land throughout the City. Alderman Leftwich and other members of the Committee expressed an opinion that in the event that estimates of construction were too low on some of the other projects that item 11 in part at least could be diverted to make up deficits. Stan Martin, Parks Administrative Assistant, has already requested the City Planning Department to make a survey to determine where additional parks lands are needed. Mr. Martin has already requested Mr. Collier Gladin, the City Planning Engineer, to up date the 1961 Park Plan. ‘The General Manager was directed to forward immediately to the Finance Committee of the Board of Aldermen the above suggested allocation of the $350,000. ee -RO) ixcro - XERO XE XERO | Fe E5GC} /copyr jCOPY | ™ - _ ms ee a —_ The General Manager then requested the Chairman of the Parks Committee to take up the discussion of the proposed location of the new Cyclorama if and when it is constructed. Mr. Delius feels that the Cyclorama should remain in Grant Park since it is located on the fringe of the actual Battle of Atlanta which the Cyclorama depicts, has been in the park for some eighty years, is internationally advertised as being in Grant Park, and is adjacent to ample parking, the zoo, and Fort Walker. All members of the Committee agreed that the best location for the Cyclorama was for it to remain in Grant Park. Mr. Delius explained that there was some feeling among certain individuals that if the Cyclorama is rebuilt it be located in a downtown area possibly adjacent to the auditorium where it would be immediately accessible to tourist traffic, etc. The Chairman of the Parks Committee suggested that at the next Park Committee meeting on August 15, 1967, that the matter be formally voted upon but that in the meantime Mr. Delius should contact all those individuals who have expressed an interest in where the new Cyclorama should be located and invite them to come before the August 15th meeting. The Committee agreed that any and everything should be done possible within the capacity of our present finances to begin study towards the renovation of the painting proper and the construction of the new Cyclorama building. Mr. Charles Davis, City Comptroller, suggested to the Committee and the Parks Department that work should begin immediately on applications for matching Federal funds relative to the above mentioned $350,000 and that in addition, applications should be submitted for the purchase of park lands in the norther portion of the West End Urban Renewal Area and in the Rockdale Urban Renewal Area. In the case of the latter project, originally only one park site was suggested for Rockdale; however, there appears to be three park sites now with two being donated and one having to be purchased by the City. Mr. Davis said that somehow or other funds would be made available for a park in the northern portion of the West End Urban Renewal project and in the Rockdale Urban Renewal Project. Being no further business, the meeting adjourned. Se _ ~ - xERO | XERO XERO | Oory 'CcoPY jCOPy | = = SS = Le ey = = —— = . - xERO! COPY re
