RE: Masonry Structure at :
1821 West Anderson Avenue, S.W.

Dear Mr. Inmon:

It has come to my attention that you have not vacated or complied
the above building. I had understood from the inspector who has talked
with you that it was your intention to vacate this structure and to
bring it into full compliance with the code before it was reoccupied. An
inspection on June 12, 1968, at the above mentioned address revealed that
there were seven major structures on the property. One of these is new
and is in full compliance. Two of these which were extremely dilapidated
have since then been demolished. Three other frame structures which are
dilapidated are standing vacant. This masonry building was the only old
facility in use. In its present condition it constitutes a hazard to
health and safety. (1) As the housekeeping, particularly in the storage
areas, provides a constant fire hazard and a breeding place for rats and
other vermin, (2) The floors under the kitchen and in the bathrooms are
decayed, have sunk and are in danger of collapse. (3) There is puddling
of water in the bathrooms which cause a most unsanitary condition. (4) The
steps at the side exit are unusable and must be replaced.

Unless this building is made safe it would be my duty under Section

106.1(a) of the City of Atlanta Building Code to direct that it be taken
down and removed immediately. The purpose of this letter is to give you:

1, “A written notice that the butlding is deemed unsafe with a
statement of the particulars in which the building is unsafe.

2. Amn order requiring the same to be made safe or:removed as required
under Section 106.2(a) of the City of Atlanta Building Code.
