Dear Mr. Boggs:
I would like to propose to the Atianta Housing Authority that you recon-
sider a possible "turn-key" site, with the general concept of a subdivision
development for Land Lot 245 of the 14th District of Fulton County. As
you will recall, this is the same area of the Sewell Road Project of last
fall where we were turned down on our application for A-1 zoning, primar-
ily due to the efforts of S.W.A.P.
However, we believe that we can control some 130 plus acres and using the
present zoning could develop a "turn-key sub-division" which would include
approximately 130 multi-family garden units; approximately 300 units of
two-family "duplex" units and some place in the neighborhood of 125 single
family residences (18,000 square foot lots). Our initial concept would
also allow for a school site and park site in the overall development
scheme, the school site to be offered at residential price to the school
board and the park site of approximately 8 acres to be donated at $1.00
to the Parks Department.
We are awaiting your reaction to this general idea before we technically
tie up the land and employ a professionali land planner. It would be our
general concept to develop this in approximately three stages, with some
of each size and type units developed in each stage.
Please let me hear from you concerning this possibility and 1 realize
that any comment on your part would be completely unofficial.
Yours very truly, A
