65 Georgia Avenue, S. E.

August 1, 1966

The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Sir:

We, the members of the Citizens Neighborhood Advisory Council
of the Summerhill-Mechanicsville area, are deeply concerned
about the recent demonstrations reflecting the need for more
recreational facilities. We believe that the recommendations
proposed by the citizens group convened by Mr. Bennie Smith on
Thursday, the 27th of July would be effective steps toward
removing the causes of an unrest.

We, therefore, go on record in support of the following:

I. That the Mayor and Board of Aldermen be urged to
appoint a Human Relations Commission, with power
and a paid staff, for the purpose of acting upon
matters which need attention in neighborhoods and that
"erass roots" representation be included in the

II. That all leaders be asked to use their influence
to suspend demonstrations until the Mayor and
Board of Aldermen could act on the recommendation,
Monday, August 1, 1966.

Very truly yours,

Fee OHO (6 us)
