In either event, Se on ag pew Stehas oie cratatiens Loman aad To begin with, I have before me the contract between R & G Construction Company and the City of Atlanta dated November 25, 1968, which covers the subject matter of the letter. The contract is silent on the specific subject of the inquiry raised in the letter, although certain portions of the general conditions (paragraphs 11, 12, 17, 18, 20 and 22) support the proposition that the Contractor is entitled to no additional compensation. Inasmuch as there are no Georgia cases specifically on the point, we must refer to the general law to determine whether or not the facts set forth in the letter are sufficient to either (1) authorige the Contractor to take the position that there is an impossibility of performance of (2) to authorize additional compensation for the Contractor, To begin with, ". . . (1)t hae generally been deemed clear that any unprecedented flood or sudden inundation which no human power could stay and no foresight or prudence could anticipate is an ‘act of God.’ * 1 Am Jur 2d p. 680. Therefore, there is some question in my mind as to whether or not this is in fact an act of God, Im addition to the above general proposition of law, there is another legal proposition which I feel is presented in this case and which answers the question adversely as to the position of the Contractor. This proposition is as follows: “The question whether nonperformance is excused or the person who must bear the loss where parformance has been made more difficult or expensive by an act of God must be distinguished from the question whether nonper- formance is excused where performance is made impossible by such cause. Where an dnconditional contract is te do a thing which is poesible in itself, the nonperformance is not excused by an act of God, Performance of an express contract is not excused by the occurrence, after the contract was made, of an unforeseen event beyond the control of the contracting party except when the unfore- seen event renders performance of the contract impossible. Accordingly, even in a jurisdiction where an act of God may excuse the nonperformance of a contract, it must appear, to bring the case within that principle, that the thing to be done cannot by any means be accomplished." 1 Am Jur 2d p. 684. I am answering this question in a legal context; however, I feel that there might be some area here for equitable adjust- ment. To this end, I am requesting that you contact the architect, lay the problem before him and ask him what normally is done in similar circumstances, If I can be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please feel free to call upon me. I return herewith the contract above referred to, Very truly yours, Te Thomas F, Choyce Associate City Attorney TFC/ip ce: Jack C. Delius Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Enclosure

M, WILLIAMS See eeecinice snemeiaet Atlanta, Georgia 3033% MOREA rea se UnER DIRECTOR October 30, 1969 T-H85-1 (43 )PE & T-485-1(46)R/iT Fulton County Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor, City of Atlanta, City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Attention: Mr. Jack Delius General Manager of Parks Dear Mayor Allen: Over the period of the past year, we have had numerous meetings with representatives of the City of Atlanta in an attempt to utilize several areas adjacent to the above numbered project as joint development areas. The intent was for the City of Atlanta to acquire the remainder of designated parcels of property and develop mini~parks or utilize the property as additions to now existing parks. The purpose of the plan was to better tie the freeway into the existing neighborhoods. The original idea ran into financial problems and covld not be advanced, however, we feel the idea is sound and should be undertaken. After investigating the situation, we now find it possible for the State and Federal governments to acquire these parcels as whole takes and actually provide the landscaping of the designated areas as part of the project. The only obligation of the City of Atlanta would be the maintenance of these areas. To formalize the responsibilities in implementing this plan, a formal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the main- tenance of these areas will be required. Attached is one (1) set of prints outlining three (3) areas where joint development is proposed and they are as follows: 1. Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway between Virginia Avenue and Crestridge Drive. 2. Area east of freeway right-of-way and Greenland Drive bounded by Courtney Drive on south and Hillpine Drive on the north. 3. Area west of freeway right-of-wey between intersection of Courtney Drive and San Antonio Drive. Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Page Tio October 30, 1969 At present, no landscaping plans have been developed on these areas. This will be done along with the construction plans for the project and will be coordinated with your office. There may be other areas available for joint development, however, the location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans. If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will coordinate the development of these areas with your department. If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint development plan, please furnish this office with a statement of intent to maintain these areas at your earliest convenience. Revised right-of-way plans, which include the provision for these joint development areas have been submitted to the Bureau of Public Roads for approval. Your prompt reply to this request will be appreciated and will help maintain the overall schedule for completion of the project as presented at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing.

Dear Sir: I heard over radio a few days ago about so mucn crime is committed here and it is much over tne country. I believe you said many small town hogrs come to Ga.'s largest cities and most of all Atlanta. Also you spoke of sex perverts coming to Piedmont Park. That last is not new to me. I heard of it 14 years ago. Seen some evidence of it. Last Thursday I went to Piedmont park from a place a few blocks away and while walking a young , fellow about 20 passed me carrying a towel@ and 1 though he must intend going i n swmiing when surely the pg1l is not open ntil a few weeks later. I was going to see the annual art ext. I am 71 and dont walk fast and after reaching the perk @ rested awhile when walking down by the lake I met the boy coming back and talzed to him. He said he and two other boys about his age went in swimming in part of the lake which is agoeinst the law to swim in any time and the 3 went in entirely naked and the other 2 were still in. However I think they got out and may have been two long haird hippies orlLookea like it but were dressed. A micdled aged friend of mine told me today he went with his young niece and her little son Sunday and they saw e youbng men naked. One got ina _ swin and he may have been Partly covered with his twwell. it was shocking ofcourse they had been swimming in the lake. Two lawws broken. Swimmi in lake and being naked, I vought a Great Speakled Bird mag. from a handsome young fellow with long hair and he told me Atlanta now had housey of entirely nude parties ofcourse for both sexes.

Parker State Highway Urban Engineer State Highway Department of Georgia No. 2 Capitol Square Atlanta, Georgia 30334 SUBJECT: I-485-1(43)PE & I-485- 1(06) RWW Fulton County Dear Mr. Parker: Thank you for your letter of October 30, 1969. We are delighted to have the opportunity to cooperate with the State and Federal governments in providing park areas along I-485 in the City of Atlanta. The Atlanta Parks Department is prepared to assume responsibility for the maintenance of the areas designated in your letter. Mr. Jack Delius, General Manager of Parks, has asked only that his landscape architects be allowed to review and possibly influence the landscaping plans for these properties. The Parks Department staff has suggested these areas be developed with tree planting schemes that woulda require very little maintenance, We hope that you will go further in acquiring a greater number of partial takes of smaller size assuming the Bureau of Public Roads will approve an expansion of this program. The Parks Department recognizes the possible benefits to the neighborhoods involved and is willing and anxious to assume responsibility for pat eeneenanee of additional smaller sections along T-405. Mr. Jack Delius will ask the Parks Committee to introduce a resolution to the Board of Aldermen on December 1, 1969, which would authorize a formal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the maintenance of the designated areas as well as other possible areas. Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr. ee: Jack Delius Charlie Leftwich Buddy Fowlkes : Everett Millican Dan Sweat Rodney Cook Collier Gladin Cecil Turner Emory Parrish Richard Freeman Joe E.

Atlanta, Georgia 30331 Dear Mr. Glover: In further reference to your letter of May 7 and my reply of May 9, 1969 concerning an incident between you and the golf starter at Piedmont Golf Course on May 6, I wish to advise you that the following infor- mation has been submitted by the Assistant General Manager of Parks. The golf starter states that he advised you at least three, and probably four, times not to disturb the balls in the ball rack and explained to you that it was impossible to keep them straight if the general public confused the arrangement, etc. According to the starter, you did not remove just one ball, but seven or eight, and then both you and the starter became confused on which ball was first. Further, the golf starter states that after you had ignored his request not to bother the ball rack three or four times that he became very angry and did, in fact, use the language stated in your complaint. While i can certainly in no wey defend the foul language used by the starter in your presence, I must defend his position in his having advised you that the general public could not have access to the ball rack in that it would result in confusion over whose ball was first, etc, Thank you again for your psetronage, I am Cordially, Jack C.

Post Office Box 11748 Atlanta, Georgia 30305 Dear Mr. Anderton: Thank you very much for your letter of April i7, 1969 concerning the butler-type steel building erected in Chastain Memorial Park by Municipal Theater, Inc. under a lease agreement of three years which expired September 15, 1967. I particularly appreciate your timely correspondence and assure you it is the desire of this department, and I feel that I speak for the Parks Committee, to renew the lease on this structure provided the City has assurance that the unpaid balance against this structure of $17,500.00 be settled in some acceptable manner so as to preclude liens against the structure, etc. The original lease provided that at the end of the leased period the structure would become the property of the City of Atlanta. However, it is certainly not our intention to attempt to utilize the building for desperately needed storage and maintenance space unless, of course, your organization has no further need for it. We will 811 work with you in providing what we hope to be a successful 1969 Summer Season. I will ask the Associate City Attorney, Mr. Thomas F. Choyce, to proceed to prepare a resolution to be introduced to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen on May 5, 1969, which will renew the lease for an additional three years. As I understand it, the present law is such that we are not allowed to lease beyond this period of time except at Grant and Piedmont Parks.

Delius, General Manager Atlanta Gity Parks City Hall Annex Atlanta, Georgia SUBJECT: Theatre of the Stars Building in Chastain Park. Dear Mr. Delius: As you are aware both the "Theatre Under The Sters" and the "Municipal Theatre! no longer exist. Jn place of these.two theatres is the newly chartered and duly organized "Theatre of the Stars, Inc.", which will be the future sunmer and winter.theatre. The 1969 suxmer . shows will be held in the new Civic Auditorium, and the opening show will be on July &, 1969. The new "Theatre of the Stars" is presently operating out of the old Municipal Theatre building in Chastain Park. This building was erected on Chastain Park property, under a lease agreement of three (3) years with the City of Atlanta, which expired on September 15, 1967. Under the lease agreement, it is renewable "upon such terms and conditions as thé Mayor may desire", ‘ In order to constuct this building, a note for $32,500.00 was negotiated by the Municipal Theatre with the Citizens and Southern Yational Bank. Presently there is an unpaid balance of $17,500,00-~ no payments, due to the defunct condition of the Municipal Theatre, have been made since December, 1958. I am presently discussing this indebtedness with the 0. & 5S. Bank and will also discuss it with the Board of Trustees of the Theatre of the Stars at their May meeting. Unless we can maintain the usage of this building it will be impossible to present the 1969 summer shows. Will you therefore discuss this with the proper city authorities and secure a lease extension? Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Miss Kelley: Thank you for your letter of November 26th. On November 28th the undersigned, along with the Assistant General Manager of Parke, the Senior Administrative Assistant for Federal Aid, end the City Arborist visited the above location, It was the consensus of opinion that limited Park personnel and equipment could not be diverted from areas already assigned as our responsibiiity to take on additional responsibilities involving property not in ownership by the Depertment of Parks. Furthermore, the elevation of the above site is such that the mere planting of ass, ete, would not enhance the general ares in that from street 11 it would be virtually unnoticed except at the far end of the property. Finally, it was immediately evident to the inspection team that if temporary beautification were attempted on this large tract of land, we would have no recourse other than to continue the practice throughout the entire Stone Mountain Freeway project. I only wish that we had sufficient available manpower to temporarily beautify this location, Beautification is our business, but I say to 700 ee Eanes Sate Bee ae.

Williams School/Bowen Homes area. I am immediately Mr. Joe Gentry, of our Parks Engineering Division, and Mr. Marvin Billups, Recreation Supervisor for your area of the City, to contact you personally and discuss in depth the location, design, equipment, etc. of a playliot. Aftex several years the City has finally secured title to a park site adjacent to the Bowen Homes, which is presently known as the Field Road Park Site.

Delius, General Manager ‘Department of Parks City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 , Re: A Building to House the Atlanta Cyclorama Dear Jack: Before any comprehensive or intelligent plenning can be done, a Progrem must be prepared. Wormelly the Owmer prepares the Program. This is given to the Archi- tect at the very start of the project and forms the basis for all future planning. Since a Program has not been prepared, we are in 2 position to help prepare this Program. z The Program should fully set forth but not be limited to the following: 1. AI1 activities and functions to be carried out in building. 2. Consideration of complete program for viewing of painting to determine exact sequence of events and movement of crowds. 3. Atmosphere and mood desired to be created in various areas. h. Nature of and list of all items to be displayed in museum. 5. Circulation and functional relationships. 6. Speciel effects desired. 7. Growd movement and handling. 8. Location of building. 9, Relationship to other buildings end sites in park. 10. Orientation of building. © ll. General psychology of building and setting. vw Mr. Jack Delius, General Manager February 18, 1969 Page 2 12. Desirable number of people to be accommodated in each area. 13. Quality and size of concessions. : 1. Pid vate offices. 15. Special electronic control of program. 16. Climatic control. 17. Special fire safety equipment and precautions, 18. Security sequirements. | 19. Special surfaces and treatments. 20, Temporary handling of Cyclorama, painting and foreground. 21. Requirements of restoration building. 22. Permanent mounting of Cyclorama painting. 23. Relationship with restoration artists. 2). Service area desired. 25. Storage and utility requirements, 26. Parking, public and private. 27. Loading requirements. 28, Extent of landscaping. 29. Special consideration for handicapped. 30. Fallout shelter consideration. 31. Decisions concerning special sehanibahta. Since this Progrem will be a joint effort between the Owner and Architects, it logically follows that much time and cooperation will be required of all parties concerned, ; It is difficuit to estimate the time required to prepare this Program due to the uniqueness of the project; however, we feel thet this could be accomplished in - one month's time of concentrated effort. In order for % personnel toward kee; ent to take maximum advantage of their oim epir t perform this service on an hou 1 b the Program Development down, we propose to y basis, Since only the Principals from the tio Mr. Jack Delius, General Manager February 18, 1969 Page 3 architectural firms would be involved, the hourly rate would be $12.00 times a factor of 2.75 to cover overhead and profit. Should the Program take longer than anticipated, we further propose to guarantee a maximum charge of $7,500.00. After the Program is written and approved and we have signed the contract for the normal architectural work, then we propose to credit one-half of any funds paid on the Program toward payment of the regular architectural fee, Sine certain consultants will be involved and should be so stated in the Architectural Contract, we plan to draw up the Architectural Contract after the Program is written. We would like to inmediately start work as soon as this is approved, All we need is your approval on the enclosed copy of this letter. Yours very truly, THE CYCLORAMA ARCHITECTS Pid H, Sep Romulus H.

Bill Finch is an old friend of mine whom I have known for many years and for this reason I was delighted to know that his firm has been retained by you to plan and make recommend- ations for the building to house the Cyclorama Battle Painting. In this letter I have proposed and described the need for an Orientation Room which will serve to prepare the visitor and put his mind in a historic framework to better understand the Painting when he sees it. With this background, the visitor will not think of the battle action on the Painting, consciously, or sub-consciously, as an isolated episode of the War Between the States, but rather as an integrated and dramatic develop- ment of Sherman's March to the Sea. The significance of this battle can stand on its own feet, but when placed in a running context of Sherman's Campaign, the visitor will have a far better understanding and comprehension of it. I am utterly delighted and pleased that steps are undertaken to get the project started for a beautiful and efficient new home for this rarest of Paintings. If I can be of any help in an advisory capacity, I will be most honored and pleased to serve. Cordially, ( rt. = casa Wilbur G. Kurtz, Jr.:mn
