Atlanta, Georgia 30303



WILLIAM R. WOFFORD, P.E., R.A.

INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS March 4 1969
CHARLES M. SMITH, E.E. A
ASST. INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS



Mr. R. Earl Landers

Administrative Assistant to the Mayor
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Earl:

Since our conference with you, the City Attorney, Collier
Gladin and others I have not heard anything from Andrew Stevens,
the new owner of the Shaffer property located on Markham and
Haynes Streets and in the Lightening Area.

I am, therefore, confronted with doing something about the
conditions of housing in that area, since the courts have dismissed
our cases against Shaffer. The houses in question are located in
an industrial zone and, in my opinion, are beyond repair and should
be demolished. However, the City Attorney and the Courts have
ruled that we cannot require demolition.

Would you, therefore, advise me of what action I should take
in this matter. I feel that most of the houses should be cleared
but my hands are tied. The new owner has stated that he would
like to repair the houses but he has not made application for
permits.

Enclosed herewith are pictures of a couple of typical
houses he wishes to repair.

Very truly yours,

WRW:at - R. Wofford
Enc. .2 Building Official
