  • Text: ' . Ofte the Mayow | ATLANTA, GEORGIA / dyi May 2 From Peggy Baker FORM 25-9 Dear Earl: Here is latest hot scoop from Save Sandy springs. It is rather haphazardly put together, but will probably cause us additional trouble. We will be on two more TV forums next weekend, and I guess we should probe this latest garbage and see if we should hit back on anything. Please look it over and mark in red or make marginal notes on anything you think especially harmful. I will not be around Tuesday, so if you will, please call Bill Parr, 521-0845, and he will pickup your copy with any comments you may have. Extra copy is for you, We still need something dzramatic to spring, but don't have anything definite in mind. Radio spots (which are good) will begin Wed. and we have some TV stuff working, on a documentary basis, pointing up Ss deficiences. Any suggestions will be appreciated. PB

  • Text: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Boulder Park Referendum May 11, 1966 The facts and figures in this booklet have been thoroughly checked and approved by the City of Atlanta. PREFACE In the referendum to be held May 11, 1966, the people of Boulder Park are being offered an opportunity to join the City of Atlanta and to help make a great city even greater, It will be the first time this question has been considered by the Boulder Park voters. This booklet contains questions and answers dealing with the main issues involved in the referendum. The information was compiled by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, with the full cooperation of the City of Atlanta. All the facts herein have been thoroughly checked by the City of Atlanta and their accuracy confirmed. CONTENTS Page Ad Valorem ‘Taxes: 24 inieeoe deadaes Sint oie ected as 1 A Comparison Of Taxes: 6 oie 6 6 seca ee pigs ewe ole ek dine lets 3 Representation in Local Government ..-.-.....--....-, 5 Growth and Zon ois. series oe ee le we a ea 6 Fire Protection and Fire Insurance .................. 8 Polite PORGHON. <0 c ec sce kee lee ee es Pb ech 5 8 ah 3 Sauiitation: Service waa ied ss eee ed aes ade Ma a 10 Water Service: a§ Tic Q. - SCHOOLS What changes would occur in the schools my children attend? What would be done about school bus transporation, since the Atlanta system does not have free transportation ? Several major differences would occur in the way of advantages: Kinder- gartens in the Atlanta system schools; a greater emphasis at the high school level on vocational programs, in addition to the college preparatory and general programs; and the benefit of more specialized programs and more technical specialists. In general, the curricula of the Atlanta system and the Fulton County system are similar, as are the personnel policies, overall operational procedures and financial structures. However, the salary schedules for teachers are somewhat higher in the Atlanta system. In general, Atlanta teachers are paid 8.9 per cent more than Fulton County teachers. Any teachers who become a part of the Atlanta School System would transfer directly to the city's pension plan without loss of any money or benefits. Atlanta and Fulton school officials agree that pension benefits of both systems are practically the same. A survey by the Atlanta School System showed that there are 380 pupils in the area included in the May 11 referendum -- 270 elementary school children and 110 in high school, Of these, 69 already are attending Atlanta schools: 54 elementary pupils in Fain, Oglethorpe, Stanton, Towns and West Haven schools, and 15 high school students in Harper, Turner and West Fulton schools. The remaining 216 elementary pupils attend East Point Elementary School, and the other 95 high school students attend South Fulton (in East Point), Thomas (in College Park) and Lakeshore (in College Park). A 14-room elementary school is under construction in the Boulder Park area and will be available for occupancy in September, 1966. School officials say it is possible this school could help relieve some of the overcrowding in adjacent schools, such as Fain and Towns, Additionally, two other sites in the area have been secured for future construction of an elementary school and a high school. As for the loss of bus transportation, officials say this problem would be dealt with right away. The Fulton County system provides free bus trans- portation for pupils who live further than 1-1/2 miles from school, and this expense is covered by local and state funds. On the other hand, the Atlanta Transit System provides bus transportation for Atlanta system pupils on routes determined by pupil need and with pupils paying as they ride. Robert Sommerville, president of Atlanta Transit System, has given assurance that school bus routes would be provided for pupils in areas joining the city. =1y= Q. SEWERS - Would there be any major changes in the system of sewer service? Would I be assessed any sewer charges before sewer service is extended to my home? If your home is already on a sewer line, or if you have a working septic tank, you probably would see no immediate changes that would affect you. Certainly, there would be no sewer assessment charged until sewer service is provided. The city already has made a preliminary study of the probable needs of the area, and it would undertake to make the necessary improve- ments and additions as soon as possible. However, your present situation would largely govern the effect on you and your home, For example, if your home already is served by a sewer line, you would see nothing different. You would continue receiving the service with no special charges or other changes, except where such might be applied city-wide. If your home is served by a working septic tank in good condition, then you would not be affected until a sewer line is extended to your street. Even when this occurred, you could be granted as long as six years to pay the assessment which is always made for this service. If sewer service were brought to your neighborhood for the first time -- this is always by petition of the residents -- then your property would be assessed on a front-footage basis for the sewer line in front of your property. This assessment is set by law at $3.50 per front foot. The connection to your home from the sewer line, if the line were laid on a street that is already paved, would be between $80 and $120, And again, if you already have a satis- factory septic tank, you could be allowed up to six years to pay the assessment. This policy exists in the case of already existing residences and does not apply to vacant property, however. -13- STREET LIGHTS AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS Q. - Would the city provide street lights in my neighborhood right away ? What would be done about traffic signals ? A. - Asa general policy, the City of Atlanta provides street lights in areas as requested by the residents, and it has kept up with demands since the 1952 Plan of Improvement. No wholesale program of street light installation is anticipated in any part of the city, because of budget limitations. In other words, a neighborhood that has not expressed a positive desire for this service need not fear that street lights would be forced on them. However, the city, through its Traffic Engineering Department, has been at- tentive to the requests of those who do want lights and is currently right on schedule in meeting these demands. Additionally, a program of upgrading street lights on major thoroughfares is in progress to bring these facilities up to the latest recommended standards. A preliminary survey in the Boulder Park area has shown that some 18 street lights are currently in use, all on local streets. The estimated needs for arterial streets include 80 lights, which, obviously, could not be installed all at once. The estimated needs for local streets are for some 221 additional lights, which would be undertaken by the city on the basis of requests by the residents. In general, the city installs traffic signals at intersections where traffic conditions satisfy the "warrants" set out by uniform national standards, as adopted and prescribed by the Georgia Highway Department. However, Atlanta citizens on occasion have shown a desire for and have provided the necessary funds to have signals installed at some intersections where the "warrants" are not fully met. This can be accomplished at intersections where signals are a help to traffic movement and a con- venience to the citizens. No traffic signals are now in service in the Boulder Park area, but one new signal may be needed in the next two to three years, according to the city survey. STREETS AND SIDEWALKS Q. - What could Boulder Park expect in the way of street and sidewalk improvements, now and in the future? How can we get sidewalks or streets paved, and how much would it cost? A. - A survey by the City of Atlanta Department of Construction found two streets in the Boulder Park area in "below average" condition -- Fairburn Road and part of Boulder Park Drive. Both of these will require resurfacing in the very near future, the Construction Department said. The city has pledged to assign a high priority to these projects. The other streets in the area are in "good" or "average" condition and will not require immediate work. Paving of streets and sidewalks in the City of Atlanta, with two exceptions, requires a petition signed by more than 50 per cent of the property owners involved. Property owners are assessed for the cost of the paving on a front-footage basis. The average assessment for sidewalks in residential areas (six-foot sidewalks) is about $2.60 per front foot, and property owners are allowed up to four years to pay. Charges for street paving vary with the size of the project, but the assessment generally is between $6.50 and $7.50 per front foot for paving and curbing. Property owners are allowed up to 10 years to pay the assessments for street paving and up to four years to pay for curbing. The two exceptions to the petition method are for sidewalks which are deemed necessary for reasons of safety, and for sidewalks in front of schools. If a sidewalk is required for public safety, the city may put one in without being petitioned and then assess property owners on a front-footage basis. Sidewalks in front of schools are built at city expense, with no petition required. In line with its policy on school sidewalks, the City of Atlanta would move as quickly as possible to install sidewalks in front of the new elementary school now under construction in the Boulder Park area. ={5-

FACT: If Sandy Springs became a part of Atlanta, it would receive the full-service police protection given a heavily populated urban area, instead of its present rural police service. This expanded protection would include: * patrolmen on duty in the business district * motorcycle patro|men on traffic and patrol duty * unlimited services and facilities of Atlanta’s Juvenile Crime Prevention Squad and special Detective Department * increased radio patrol service” *This increased service follows the present trend toward mobility in police protection via two-way patrol! cars. In accordance with the trend, no additional precinct stations are planned for the city, nor would they be planned for Sandy Springs at present. FACT: Atlanta now has about 1.5 uniformed policemen for every 1,000 population and hopes to increase that ratio, giving more protection to the entire city. Compare this ratio with only .5 per 1,000 in Sandy Springs. FACT: At present, the only laws enforceable in Sandy Springs ore state laws, most of them designed to cover rural areas. Violators of state laws are turned over to the Fulton County sheriff for trial ina state court. If Sandy Springs joined Atlanta, city ordinances as well as state laws would be enforced as they now are in Atlanta. FIRE PROTECTION... FACT: Atlanta has a Class3 fire protection rating which compares favorably with other cities of similar size. This means city fire protection is good, based on number and lacation of fire stations, ample water supply in all areas, and number of men and engines. It also means fire insurance rates in the Atlanta area are considerably lower than in Sandy Springs, since fire premiums are based on the rating of the district. FACT: Sandy Springs has two different fire ratings, neither of which is equal to Atlanta’s. Class 6 rating covers the area south of Dalrymple Road, which is the fire district . . . and Class 10 covers the area outside the fire district. FACT: Sandy Springs’ present fire ratings mean... * higher fire insurance rates * less adequate fire protection Sandy Springs’ fire protection is furnished by one fire station equipped with one fully manned engine company, plus another fully manned engine .company operating out of a city fire sta- tion on Northside Drive. Emergency back-up assistance is available from the Northside Drive Station and a station in Buckhead. Fire protection for the Sandy Springs fire district is furnished under a contract with Atlanta, for which residents of the fire district pay a 4.5 mill tox. FACT: A preliminary study of Sandy Springs indicates the following would be required to bring the area up to Class 3 standards permanently: * 3 new fire stations * replacement of 2 existing engines * 1] new engine and 1 new ladder truck * approximately 35 additional men FACT: Atlanta's good fire protection rating depends on maintenance of top quality fire fighting facilities throughout the city. Once Sandy Springs joined Atlanta, the city would have to bring the Sandy Springs area up to Class 3 requirements . .. or jeopordize the excellent rating now enjoyed by the entire city. FACT: Fire prevention as well as protection would be improved if Sandy Springs joined Atlanta. * At present, the county has no fire inspectors. Once Sandy Springs joined Atlanta, it would have the services of city fire inspectors and fire investigators, including arson specialists (or investigators) . . . plus the benefits of Atlanta's fire prevention program. At the pre- sent time, arson investigation in the Sandy Springs fire district is accomplished through the State Fire Marshal's office. * High standards of training and supervision within the city would also be contributing factors toward fire prevention and protection. * In case of serious emergency, Sandy Springs would have the back-up protection of the entire city fire department, not only its own local fire fighting facilities. eo Oo 4 GOOD FIRE and POLICE PROTECTION ARE BASIC COMMUNITY and FAMILY NEEDS. SANDY SPRINGS MUST NOT SETTLE FOR LESS THAN THE BEST IN THESE IMPORTANT AREAS.

  • Text: WILLIAM 8B. HARTSFIELD ATTORNEY AT LAW STANDARD FEDERAL SAVINGS BLDG. ATLANTA, GA. MAYOR EMERITUS cITY OF ATLANTA Mr. R. Earl Landers Administrative Assistant City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Earl: I have yours of the 14th. with reference to annexation. The Act passed in 1966 would, in my opinion, enable Atlanta to annex contiguous land in DeKalb County. In the areas of North Atlanta and Druid Hills, there are many people who would come into Atlanta if given the opportunity, however, DeKalb County would probably not like to lose water customers, and I think it would take some skillful negotiations on the part of the City. However, since the stakes involve control of some $700,000,000.00 worth of city facilities, plus the good name of the South's greatest city, I think such high stakes would warrant an intensive campaign to bring these people in - however arduous it might be. The Bill states that it is cumulative, which means that you could still rely on the old Plan of Improvement Act of 1951 when annexing Fulton County. It is much simpler except you must annex by contiguous land lots, Another vague section of the 1966 Bill requires that the area be conti- guous with the present city limits for at least 1/8 of the areas' aggre- gate external boundary. I presume this could easily be met in the case of Druid Hills and North Atlanta, although to me it is rather vague, and, of course, bright-eyed lawyers on the other side would subject every step of such procedure to microscopic inspection. Why could not the city detail several people, without fanfare or publicity, to these two areas and also to the land lot adjacent to Atlanta in the Sandy Springs area for the purpose of securing signatures. Of course, it is up to you to decide whether you want to use the 1951 law in Sandy Springs and the 1966 law in DeKalb, or whether you wish to use the 1966 law in both counties. The future stakes are high and well worth the effort. If you will listen to me, however, any advance publicity will simply result in the officials WILLIAM B. HARTSFIELD ATTORNEY AT LAW STANDARD FEDERAL SAVINGS BLDG. ATLANTA, GA. MAYOR EMERITUS cITY OF ATLANTA involved raising a public hullaballoo to prevent citizens from signing and you will then get nowhere. If it is done quietly by explaining the facts to each citizen and getting his signature, I think you would have a reasonable chance of success. Yours truly, A Spratt eks ti’ iat B. eres wbh/ctb P, S. In the case of the land lot adjacent to Sandy Springs, they already voted for annexation, and most of the parents want to send their children to Dykes School,

  • Text: TAXES FACT: Property taxes would be higher inside the city, but the increase would be largely offset by reductions in water bills, sanitation service charges, and fire insurance. Net modest total increase in taxes. All property result: a assessments in the city and county are made by the Joint Board of Assessors in accordance with the formula established in 1956. The following actual examples are from a random survey of Sandy Springs Homes.

The major part of the increase in property taxes would be recovered through income tax deductions. FACT: The City of Atlanta has a Class 3 fire rating, reflecting its high quality fire fighting facilities. Sandy Springs, with less fire protection, is rated Class 6. Since the cost of fire insurance is based in part on the rating of the district, premiums would be reduced if Sandy Springs became part of Atlanta. The following figures are for the same homes used in the examples above, assuming these are all brick veneer homes which receive the lowest insurance rates. Premiumcosts cover straight fire insurance only. Value of Class 3 Annual Class 6 Annual Home Fire Insurance Fire Insurance Premium Premium 1. $16,360 $20.00 $29.00 ll. 28,160 30.00 46.00 Il. =-43,000 44.00 67.00 Taking into consideration increased property taxes, reduced water and sanitation bills, re- duced fire insurance premiums, the home owners in the examples above would pay the following additional amounts annually if Sandy Springs joined Atlanta: I. $17.10 il. 29.78 Il. 77.12 These figures do not take into consideration deductions allowed on state and federal income tax returns. ooo INCREASED FIRE ond POLICE PROTECTION; BETTER ZONING; CHEAPER WATER, SANITATION and FIRE INSURANCE; EXPANDED SCHOOL FACILITIES.

  • Text: GET the FACTS On... ; A ah Ly _™ er i : é REPRESENTATION IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT FACT: The Sandy Springs Area is governed by three county commissioners who represent the entire county and not any particular section. At present, none of the commissioners resides in the Sandy Springs Area. The Fulton County School Board is not elected but is appointed by the Grand Jury. FACT: If the Sandy Springs Area joins Atlanta, it will enter the City as the new Ninth Ward, Represen- tation would include 2 Aldermen, 1 member of the Board of Education . . . . all elected by Ninth Ward voters in an election in November, 1967... . all residing in the Ninth Ward. FACT: Beginning with the 1969 city election, these representatives would be elected by city-wide vote. However, candidates would still have to be residents of the wards they represent. In other words, Sandy Springs representatives would have to be Sandy Springs residents. FACT: Since Sandy Springs has a far smaller population than any other city Ward, its proportionate repre- sentation would be greater than that of other Wards. For this reason, Ward realignment would be a future probability. But Sandy Springs people still would have representatives from their own section of the City FACT: At present, Sandy Springs residents are unable to participate in election of city officials or on programs undertaken by the city, although they are directly affected in many ways by the results of these elections. Upon coming into the city Sandy Springs residents would be able to vote in elections involving city offices and city issues. FACT: Sandy Springs would also be represented on various city boards, Through appointment of its aldermen to various aldermanic committees, in- cluding zoning, it would have a voice in matters concerning Sandy Springs specifically, and the city as a whole. In addition, citizens of Sandy Springs also would have an opportunity to serve on various appointed committees and commissions. FACT: A high percentage of Sandy Springs residents earn their livelihood in the City of Atlanta, They depend on Atlanta for many services, and use many city facilities. Therefore, it seems reason- able that they should have a voice in the govern- ment of Atlanta. At present, they do not. ¢¢¢@ @ + SANDY SPRINGS RESIDENTS ARE DIRECTLY AFFECTED BY ATLANTA’S CITY GOVERNMENT. BUT THEY CANNOT EXPRESS THEIR OPINIONS ON THE ISSUES INVOLVED.
