The Commission initially goes in to hear the complaints of TO: Mayor Allen and the Board of Aldermen MR.

In many is. <<. cases, CRC has been able to report corrective action taken ere ‘fy by City Departments and other agencies (note Supplement ' "A" for responses this week to complaints at Perry Homes), Town Hall meetings have been held since March in the following communities: Blair Village, Grant Park, Mechan- icsville, Perry Homes, University Homes and Edgewood- Kirkwood, | This report tabulates the frequency of complaints registered -.in the initial meetings. The frequency of complaints is not _ in itself conclusive evidence of the gravity of problems faced “7 by Atlanta. ° The purpose of this memorandum is to make recommendations 5 on problems the Commission has been unable to resolve. Far and away the most frequent complaint received was the need for more and better recreational facilities. Twenty-six sgh -complaints were received on this subject compared with ie eight each on police and garbage service. Twenty-four a complaints on recreation dealt with the need for more swim- ee ming pools, more play lots for tots, and programs for teen- ee ‘ agers. Two complaints had to do with lack of services by ° a Page 2 Summary of Complaints Community Chest agencies in the disadvantaged areas, The Commission would like to recommend four areas for improving this situation: 1. The Parks Department capital improvement budget of approximately $350,000 is grossly inadequate. This -- sum can easily be expended to build one new park; but this $350,000 has to be spread over 65 parks. For example, a modern swimming pool costs approximately teens senian Srertiee E220 O00. + be City of Atlanta needs to give serious consideration to a multi-million dollar bond issue for .. improvement and expansion of its Parks system. It should be pointed out that the Parks Department is operating 80 play lots of which 40 are staffed. These are constructed and maintained principally from Federal | Poverty Funds. If these funds are reduced, this would . throw an immediate and substantial burden on this City. ~—"—~2.-~Emphasis should be placed on expanding and improving - a: play lots for tots and neighborhood parks in such com- munities as Mechanicsville, Summerhill, Fulton Village, Blue Heaven, Bowen Homes, Perry Homes and Grant + Park area. Parks need to be in walking distance of these citizens where possible; ghetto families have very poor transportation. Improved transportation in disad- vantaged areas will help broaden recreational opportu- nities. Better utilization must be made of school-playgrounds “and facilities. This requires more cooperation between . the Atlanta School Board and the Parks Department. 4. With the costs of construction and real estate spiraling, . Atlanta has to make better use of school facilities for recreation. The need is pressing for improved recreation in public “housing. The Atlanta Housing Authority can build recre- --ational buildings. The City should urge action here by the Authority. The Board of Aldermen has offered to pay 50% of the costs of operating recreational programs in public housing if the Authority would do likewise. Under Federal law, AHA can not do so. Therefore, the City must accept its responsibility here in as muchas ' it has assumed responsibility in providing other services in public housing, A major burden for improving recreation in the City rests with the Parks Department. Churches have been remiss in developing recreational programs Page a ‘ F Summary of Complaints need to step up their programs in disadvantaged areas and to guard against serving just the middle class. The Atlanta Children's and Youth Services Council has done an outstanding job in coordinating and promoting volunteer services and warrants continous support. Complaints about the Atlanta Police Department were eight in number....... seven dealing with the need for greater protection and quicker, response and ---——one-about segregation in the department. Four suggestions were made by citizens for improving police services; 1. More foot-patrolmen in areas of high crime, 2. Quicker switchboard answering at headquarters. 3. Complete desegration of the Police Department. --—-4, - Improved street lighting in areas of high crime. This has sharply reduced crime in some American cities. . if Atlanta is to cope with its rising crime rate, citizens must share this responsibility with the Police Department. The Atlanta Police Department must be givena dequate funds for operations, salaries, training and research, Atlanta citizens have a strong responsibility to report crimes and to serve as witnesses where needed, _Garbage service also ranked second in number of complaints. The Commission "received six complaints on the quality and frequency of garbage colléction and -----—two complaints on garbage being strewn over premises. The Commission held a special meeting in June with the Director of the Public Works Department and the Director of the Sanitary Service to inform them of these facts and to make recommendations. The Public Works Committee of the Board of Aldermen needs to take further steps to mechanize garbage collection and to increase the ee “———pay of sanitary workers and to elevate the dignity of the job. Citizens need to. show more appreciation for the men who perform this important public service. -A serious complaint heard at Town Hall meetings during the spring dealt with the failure of the City to remove junk cars. The responsibility for removing junk cars on private property rests with the Sanitary Department and on streets with the Police Department. In the last few weeks both departments have moved forward with aggressive programs for coping with this nagging problem. Other complaints received by the Commission are listed below in the frequency in which received: 7 complaints......on sewers and drainage--5 on flooded streets and 2 on dirty sewers and smelly creeks. 5 complaints, ss. lack of jobs for youth.

SUPPLEMENT "A" The follow-up meeting in the Northwest Perry Homes area was held on July 22, The CRC was able to report the following positive actions on complaints registered by the citizens: 1, Transportation--the CRC met with Mx. William Maynard, President of the Atlanta Transit Company, to encourage the extension of the Perry Boulevard Bus to Hollywood Road.

  • Text: From: Community Relations Commission Lae 121 Memorial Drive, SW Atlanta, Georgia 30303 For Release, Thursday, September 25, 11:00 A.M. BEN HILL LEADERS DEPLORE VANDALISM Mager - a ae: Je Made ae. et es Pe A group of Ben Hill church, school, business and community leaders released a statement today expressing their "shock and shame" at an act of vandalism directed against a Negro family recently who moved on an all white street in this southwest - Atlanta community. . The McMichael family purchased a home on Kimberly Road and moved into it in late August. Vandals hit once breaking windows and hit again some three days later, . The McMichael's elected to move and their money was refunded by the real estate © \ agent who sold the property. ~ The statement by the group of Ben Hill leaders continued: “We know the spirit. of this community. We believe that the good people of Ben Hill and surrounding communities want their moral support placed behind the movement for fairness in housing and equality in education. We encourage that every effort be made by the Atlanta Police Department to apprehend the offender so that justice will prevail and respect for the law be strengthened in event that a similar situation should face us again. We believe that man, his person and his personality, is sacred and that property rights must be respected and that unless we can come to this point of view, none of us are safe." This statement represented the first collective effort of censure from that community. The group met at the Ben Hill Methodist Church with the yf ° Atlanta Community Relations Commission acting as the convener. . Among those participating in the meeting were: Rev. L. Clyde Allen, Bill Atchison, Ernest R. Bennett, Rev. Ww. Cc, Bowen, Kenneth R. Drane, Milton Se Earnest, John Geren, Rev. William Geren, Mrs. Thelma Heath, James R, Lemon, Walker McKnight, Charles L. Moates, Dr. Harmon D. Moore, H. Jack Smith, Ghavies Stinson, Jr., Ray Terry, Jr., Cecil M. Thornton, ingadon Wade, Thomas G. Ward, Nat Welch, Rev. Paul F, Wohlgemuthand Cy Young. @ =)

Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: The February meeting of the Community Relations Commission was held this past Friday, February 28th, anda substantial portion of the meeting was taken up with discus- sion of the so-called “welfare payments freeze." There was a great amount of confusion as to just exactly what was involved in the "freeze." However, it appears that the federal government presently plans to restrict welfare grants to the states beginning July 1, 1969, which would in turn cause some reduction in the payments to individual recipients. It was the strong consensus of the Community Relations Commission that any reduction in the individual welfare payments - particularly in the summer month of July - would increase unrest and the possibility for general trouble in the community. It is clear that the whole question of the "freeze" needs to be studied and clarified, and I have asked the staff of the Commission to undertake such a study. I have also talked with Dan Sweat this morning who is also studying the matter. Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. March 3, 1969 Page Two If the problem exists as it now appears, the Commission will be available to assist you in any way in attacking the problem. Sincerely, Community Relations mmission BA: jmb ce: Reverend Sam Williams cc: Mr. Nat Welch cc: Mr. Dan Sweat

  • Text: April 2, 1969 Mr. William H. Boone, Jr. 3775 Gordon Road, Apt D-5 Atlanta, Georgia 30331 Dear Mr. Boone: In reply to your questionnaire regarding the Community Relations Commission, I hope the following information will assist in your Ce ~. tial ae ee ee = Se i er studies at Atlanta University: i. What factors caused the city to create the CRC. ...? This was a decision made by the Board of Aldermen to provide a coordinating agency to work with various community | problems. What do you view as the job of the CRC. . .. .? Attached is a copy of the Ordinance establishing the Commission which outlines the duties and responsibilities. Was the CRC created primarily to work in black neighborhoods. . ? It was created primarily to work in solving the pewblems of Atlanta's disadvantaged citizens, both white and black. How can the CRC best serve the people of Atlanta? By fulfilling its responsibilities as outlined in the Ordinance, and by providing Atlanta citizens with factual information concerning racial issues and working to eliminate some of the existing misconceptions and myths. Should it take an active role in changing racial patterms . . .? The CHC is one of many organizations working to end the ghetto | on the basis of race, creed, color or national origin. rf et SS ee Mr. 13, 14, 2 We AUR ee ee Te : ee eee. en ee eS William H. Boone, Jr. How do you feel the CRC is being accepted in the affluent white community? There seems to be an increasing interest and support of the CRC from the fiffluent white community. Many people throughout Atlanta are finding the Commission to be a valuable agent in bringing about social change and equal opportunity for all citizens through peaceful and responsible means. Hopefully, this increasing interest will lead to the involvment of more Atlanta citizens in the efforts of the CRC. What were your feelings toward Mrs. Paschall as director of the CRC? Based on the unanimous recommendation of the Commission members, I appointed Mrs. Paschall as its director, as I felt the Commission deserved my full support. Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. oe 4

MAYOR OF ATLANTA CONCERNING THE ATLANTA COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION What factors caused the city to create the CRC ? How much influence did the riots in other cities or the 196), Civil Rights Act have in convincing the city to establish the CRC ? What do you view as the job of the CRC ? Is it just a sounding board ? Was the CRC created primarily to work in the black neighborhoods of the city ? How, in your view, can the CRC best serve the people of Atlanta ? Should the CRC take an active role in changing the racial patterns of the city ? Do you believe the CRC can be the prime agent in getting the school board to fully integrate the Atlanta public schools ? Can the CRC do anything to speed integration of Atlanta's neighborhoods-- which would relieve the back pressure of housing in black areas ? At present the CRC has no powers outside of holding hearings and investigation should the CRC be given additional powers ? Atlanta is very heterogeneous in its makup.e How do you make the CRC member- ship reflect, as near as possible, the diverse segments of the city ? What do you consider when you select a CRC member--what is your criteria beyond the ordinance's adult resident clause ? In the past the CRC had to struggle to get an increase in its bidget, in 1966, only $30,000, in 1967 $35,000, however this year the Finance Committee gave the CRG a sizable increase in its budget without dissenting voices--why ? As late as 1961 it has been reported that you did not favor an official human relations council(excluding the coordinating committee you created which had no official status) why did you change your view in 1966 ? How do you feel the CRC is being accepted in the affluent white comnunity ? What were your feelings toward Mrs. Paschal as director of the CRC ?

Atlanta, Georgia Dear Hobie: Again I want to thank you for such a wonderful compliment after the Pillsbury luncheon. Sometimes luck is with us, We had been trying for weeks to get in touch with the Branch Manager of Burger King in connection with the Workshop on Black Business Opportunities scheduled for February 20th. Asa result of our luncheon conversation, Jim MecLamore (and his branch manager) came to City Hall on Wednesday and spent well over an hour with Nat Welch of the Community Relations Commission, going over plans for the workshop and specifics of how Burger King could move ahead of other franchise companies. I think it will be most rewarding. Iam enclosing a copy of the Workshop program for your information. lam sure the papers will cover it, but if you are interested in attending it, I will see that you will have a special invitation. Most sincerely, Mrs. Ann M. Moses Enclosure
