UNFI NISHED BUSINESS: AHA Review Mr. Perrin stated that Messrs. Baldwin and Dodd have submitted a report on behalf of the ACDC to the Atlanta Housing Authority concerning the , review of redevelopers proposals for the Rawson-V1a shington Stre-et Urban Redevelopment Area. After eiving an informal rundown on the report, Mr. Dodd suggested the feasibility of AHA considering the utilization of consultants on a retainer basis, not to diminish the role of other reviews, but to provide a more complete review. He feels this would be economically feasible because the amount of the cost involved in relation to the total cost would be modest. Mr. Perrin suggested that Mr. Dodd present at the next meeting of ACDC a report to AHA recommending how revie ws could be improved.

Portfolios will be available to members who appear at the mee ting of the Parks Committee. �- 3 Tree Ordinance Mr . Perrin stated he received a letter from Mayor Allen thanking ACDC for its letter of endorsement for the proposed Tree Ordinance. The ordinance will be up for a hearing shortly, at which time th e Commission will be notifi e d.

Pe rrin stated that he and hle ssrs, Baldwin and Gould had met with Me ssrs. Schukraft and McClure of the West End Businessmen's Association, conc e rning the propos e d ordinanc e to ban "for sale sign on residential prop er ty. At Mr. Pe rrin's requ est, Mr. Baldwi n gave a brief report of the meet ing. Mr, Baldwin added that the committee ge nerally feel~ this question involve s social and e conomic problems, and go e s beyond th e Co mmis sion's area of responsibility. It was d e cided that at th e next AC DC meeting, a sub-committee be established to deve lope criteria for a proposed overall sign ordinanc e. "Terminus II Project Hr. Muldawer stated that Hrs, Montgomery of the At lanta Junior League has informed him that the Le agu e plans to involve its e lf in this projec t. As the city is looking for a plac e to relocate the Cyclora ma, Mr. Muldawer feels it would b e useful to have a study ma de of the fea~ibility of locating the Cyclorama as a focal point in the pr opos ed "underground" developme nt. NEW BUSINESS; Members agreed that in the near future a meeting should be se t asid e for the ACDC to take a position re rapid transit.

October 24, 1966 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: Please accept my apologies for missing the meeting between you and the Atlanta Civic -Design Commission committee to study the potential of the 11 Atlanta Underground", fo r which I feel so strongly. I had been looking forward to seeing you and expressing my ideas on the project, but communication became confused when the original meeting date was changed. I believe the restoration and reactivation of this area will help make Atlanta one of the unique and excit ing urban are a s in the country . It can : 1. Provide a historic area, which At lanta is lacking . Philade lphia's Independence Mall gene rates $400 , 000 , 000 a year 2. Give the city a tou rist a t traction se cond to none . St. Louis has "Gasligh t Square " Chi cago has "Old Town " New O rlea ns has t he "Lat in Quarter" Los Ange Ie s has "Ports O Ca 11 " Nash vii le has II Printe r 's A ll e y 11 3. Provide a n exc iting, a ll- weather e nte rta inment and restaurant c enter fo r loca l businessmen a s wel I as tourists . It is convenient to down town, inc lud ing Rich 's, First Nationa l Bank, Georgia State Col lege , the G overnmenta l Center, the Stadium , and motels in the But ler Street area . It will support conven t ion faci lit ies It can have an unique atmosphere day or nig ht �Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. October 24, 1966 Page 2 The Underground could be transformed into a place of fantasy and excitement offering a wide variety and choice of activities. There could be restaurants, saloons, night clubs, gift shops, gourmet shops, antique shops, one-of-a-kind shops, studios, galleries and sma II theatres. There cou Id be a complete restoration of the Victorian store fronts and interiors, horsedrawn surries, gas Iights, cobblestone streets, pol icemen in old-time costumes, an old-time steam engine on the tracks could be used as a restaurant, and more . The city can assist in: supporting the idea, taking action to declare this area a historic area, thus controlling design, including the area as part of the city beautification program and possible urban renewal program. The city could provide public improvements in order to spark private enterprise to do the . bulk of the development. After Reece Cleghorn's editorial was published, we received a rash of calls and letters, including individuals who wanted to invest in this project. Enclosed is some correspondence indicating the interest already gene rated. We fee l that this project would be good fo r the ci ty fi nancially as well as image wise . It has g rea t popula r appeal and could be accomplished relatively inexpensively and in a short pe riod of time . We hope you will give this idea your full consideration and support. furthe r assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call .

These may be extended following investigation to those having special needs. Sheltering Arms is open Mondays through Fridays 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Nursery provides care for boys 2½ to 10 years of age and for girls 2 ½ to 12 years of age. The fee for day care at Sheltering Arms is based on individual family income. Each family pays according to a fee attainable within financial limits. Most choose to be as self-sustaining as possible. The Social Worker assists the family in determining whether we are the appropriate agency to meet their child care needs and in setting a realistic fee for service. �Sheltering Arms operates year round with a staff of director, social worker, educational consultant, two center supervisors, sixteen teachers and assistants, a secretary-bookkeeper, two part-time pediatricians and five maintenance personnel.

If it were not for t he interest and support of each of you my job would have been an ard uous one. This you recall was the year in which we faced an operating defici t . However, friends came to our assistance and we will be able to maintain our services of the highest quality because of t heir generosity. We have 6,500 hours of volunteer service from yout h groups, garden clubs, civic clubs and our own members. They provided an enriched program for our boys and girls throughout the year. The committees all did their jobs as assigned and I am indeed grateful to each chairman for the work which you did to keep t he agency operating at top efficiency. It would seem appropriate to mention a few highlights even though each committee could not be included in my brief report. The Personnel Committee had a particularly busy year in assisting the Executive Director in replacing eight key positions. In each case we felt that we secured very well qualified persons to fill the vacancies. The salary scales have been improved each time t he budget has been presented to the Chest. �The Building and Grounds Committee has spent time, talent and funds on repairs and redecoration of Osgood Sanders Center and Play Equipment needs were met at Dorothy Arkwright Center. The Wayside Garden Club, Magnolia Garden Club and the Atlanta Junior League have made substantial contributions for capital expenditures. Social Work Advisory Committee assisted our new Social Worker in orientation to the agency. They set up procedures for an annual review of each client to set fees for service. We are most careful to adhere to health and sanitation regulat ions and to serve adequate, well balanced meals which our Nutrition Committee r.ecommends. Our clinics are operated by qualified Pediatricians and the Medical Committee carries out their suggestions. The Finance Committee built and structured the operating budget for providing service to the 350 different children in our care last year . This was done at a cost of $2.40 per day per child. We are justly proud of our economical operation of our two facilities. The United Appeal is our chief source of income and we are indeed grateful for their understanding and support of our high quality of day care services in t he community. To serve as your President has been a source of great pleasure to me and I do wish t o thank everyone who has made my year a happy experience. I particularly enjoyed the privilege of working with our fine Executive Director, Miss Margaret Colbert. Sheltering Arms had a richer program because of the active interest of our Board of Directors and the splendid service of our entire staff. Sincerely, Mrs. Harry L.

GLAD I N, Dir ec tor December 20, 1967 Mr . Rodney Cook 34 10th Street, N . E. Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Rodney: This letter is in response to one sent by Senator Dan McIntyre to Mayor Allen about the traffic: problem in Buckhead . His major concern is the proposed implementation of the Buckhead loop by Fulton County. As you may remember the Buckh ad loop was conceived by this department and totally rejected by Buckheod . However, In passing the 163 Bond Issue, th people in Buckh ad convinced the County to include some prefects that, in ff ct, do begin creation of portions of the loop at a low r level of rvice, i.e., collectors rather than limited ace $S freeways, As th present time Bill McGeorge. of Fulton County Public Works is actively pushing for completion of the loop up to a point (Se I on Figure I) . He ha be n working with us on it and has a ked for our support which we are now pr par d to giv with som r servations and conditions. One r s rvotion is that the propos d north t rminus ot Wieuca Road will probably create more problems that it will solve. The loop shou Id be brought back into ochtr e Road or at I t to P achtr e Dunwoody (Se 2 on Figure 2) . The cond r aervation cone rns proposed widths which vary from two to thr e to four Ian s. Th rood should be a coll ctor with a uniform four Ian s · from beginning to nd. Th bridging of f-()56 north (North Fulton Expr ssway) should reflect this width. Last, but not least, our support is condltlonol on a full und rstanding of our complete position. This loop may h Ip Buckh ad•s interval circulatlon problem but that is about all. It is not soluti n to the Peachtr Road corrldot traffic pr I m which begins fn D Kalb County and ends south of ookwood St tion. (Se attach d r on Buckhead traffic probl m nd Figure 2, e clally No. 2). I y this to �Mr . Rodney Cook 2. December 20, 1967 attempt to establish priorities . The overall benefit to the total community is Iimited . Since capital improvement funds are in very short supply, they should be spent on pr iorities which are more urgent in nature and w ii I resu It in greater overall benefit . I am su re that you are aware the City is actively participating in and receiving data from the Atlanta Area Transportation Study . Up to now, this has been conducted\ \ mostly by technicians with little involvement by pol icy makers . Recently, a polrcy committee was formed of which the Mayor i a member . I sent you a short paper on this'for your consideration . The nature ~f the Buckhead problem, in fac t many of the traffic problems throughout the City, such as Campbellton Road , and the patchwork manner in which they a re being handled leads me to soy that some more log ical, comprehensive approach must be adopted by pol icy makers for considerfog our transportation problems. \I ,\ ,, . ,\' Sincerely, \ Collier B.

Several people have inquired about the proposed Buckhead Loop which would relieve the traffic on Peachtree north of the Roswell Road-Peachtree intersection. This loop was i ntended to connect the Lenox Square area with the Buckhead area without crowding the Peachtree road itself. With the new Phipps Center on the old Alexander property, the problem will be impossible unless something i s done. It is my understanding that the County has reconnnended a plan, but when your Planning Department was consulted no one could tell me of any definite progress in this area. I talked to Rodney Cook this morning and he was very opposed to the County plan, but in order to relieve the condition the city will have to come up with some counter plan. This problem is tooaccute t o remain unresolved. I have tried to talk to Collier Glad~en several times but have been unable to contact him, but it does appear to me that the City Planning Department should immediately tackle this problem and come up with a constructive workabl~ solution to the traffic problem in the Buckhead area. If I can do anything to help, please let me know. Sincerely, ~~ DaHf MacIntyre, III., Senator, 40th Distr i ct. DIM:ms V ~ , t.7~ ,/'>" ~ · (7() rr~ I (_,.,..,/'.

GLA DI N, Di recto r September 13, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO: Earl Landers FROM: Collier SUBJECT: City Bond Referendum (') 0...Y"\ "'-J JJ J This is, more or less, a follow-up of our brief conservation of a few days ago concerning this subject. I feel that some serious consideration should be given to the question of when would be the most advantageous time for Atlan ta to consider another general obli gation bond referendum? The funds from the last two bond issues are nearly exhausted, and the City ' s Capital Improvement Program reflects over $400 million dollars in unfunded capital improvement projects. The Planning Department can continue to prepare survey and planning applications, applications for code enforcement programs and updating of the Community Facilities Plan, however, we need some firm guide as to future financing of the se projects and facilities, plus we would like to make the Capital Improvements Program functional. There are several events that .we know will occur and others which are being considered, for example, the national elections in the fall of '68 and the city election in the fall of '69. The Transit Authority is considering, as I understand, a bond issue for financing a transit system in the fall of '68 (along with general election); the Atlanta School Board is considering another school bond issue in the Spring of '68. I am concerned that if consideration is not given soon that the right time may not be before 1970 - can we afford to wait that long? Your thought s on this matter would be e x tremely helpful. Also, I would like your opinion concerning the desirability of state legislation enabling the Mayor and Board of Aldermen to issue General Obligation Bonds without referendum, amount to be limited by State Legislature. Similar legislation has been passed for Fulton County which is awaiting approval by the voters as a constitutional amendment. jp �September 20, 1967 MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Collier Gladin From: R .

ANN M. MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR ., Director of Governme ntal Li aison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Earl Landers From: Subject: Dan Sweat ~ Housing Resources Clerical Personnel The correspondenc e from Cecil Ale x ander , Chairman of the Housing Resources Committee, to Mayor Allen requesting an additional clerical p e rsonnel be made available to the Housing Resources Committee for the purpose of bringing the CIP data and statistics on low and moderate income housing up-to-date points up the need for a fulltime City research and information capability. I do not argue with the HRC request. However , I believe that this function should be part of the on-going responsibility of the Planning Department. It would be a shame for us to have spent $ 750 , 000 on a Community Improvement Program and not have the capability of maintaining current data in a use able form after th e CIP project is finished . I think all of us are aware of the tremendous value of the various CIP reports. For the first time we have had information on housin~ including individual computerized information on each structure as well as projected requirements for the future. This information made it possible for us to launch the critically neede d housing program almost a .year before the complete report was finished . �Mr. Landers Page Two September 20, 1967 I am sure that we are going to find that we will be able to use the information and recommendations in other reports to implement timely action in other areas. However, unless we are able to record and document what action has been taking place and complete at least an annual review of progress with updating of our facts and figures, I am afraid the CIP will have missed its mark. I think that we also should give careful consideration as to exactly what we want the Housing Resources Committee to do - how big an operation you want to make out of it. I think the same thing holds true for every other quasi-governmental authority or agency that has been set up in the City, particularly the Atlanta Youth Council and the Community Relations Commission. It might be wise for a special committee of the Board of Aldermen to take a good look at these agencies before the budget is finalized this year. I do not mean to imply that they should be cut out or cut back. It might be decided that they are woefully underfinanced. My concern is that we all know exactly what the purpose of these agencies is and more importantly that those people who run these agencies know what the City expects of them and if we are going to continue the operation they should be given the tools with which to operate according to the wishes of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen .

Collier Gladin June 1, 1967 -2- in the United States t oday. They do not, unfortunately, reflect some of the thoughtful analysis contained in the body of the Design Report itself . Taking the points covered in the reconnnendations in the order of their appearance, we would make the following comments: (1) The statement of need "from the public and private leadership of Atlanta to a goal of a 11 designed city and to the progrom needed to achieve it" would certainly have the support of every Design Commission member. We do wish that more emphasis had been placed in the study on the development of such a progi-am. (2) The Con:anission ould agree that "Physical Design plans related to the Community Improvement Program must be carried out by the best professional designers available . 11 We would have appreciated some specific recommendations as to how this might be accomplished. For example.., believe that more us might be mad of design oo titions and we had hoped to see some discussion of whether and under what oiroumstanoes the consultant would support or oppose such procedures~ Also, some coneideration of an "awrds program" might have b en i:;rovided in the r port. (3) The Co isaion would probably support th id that stTh city must pr pal" and adopt o d sign ...growth strategy." Th r port, how r, is not too cl ar on what suoh a tr t ~ would con iet of or ho to achi ve it. (!.) (5) (6) Th Oommi s1on would most lik ly support th consul nts' reOonJm ndstiona th t de 1 n control n ed to be pro d "through stren th ning of the Subdivision and Zoni.Jlg Or-di• nc s" and prob bly that th Ci ic D sign C i sion n d to b trength n d lo, but r not too clear as to how thi 1 to b socompllshed. It would hlv. be n helpful if the Consultant could h v . prov1d d p cifie a ndm ts (in rough dr ft) for consider tion ot public offici 1 and Co is ion m bra. �Mr . Collier Gladin (7) Jme 1,. 1967 -3- The statement that "a formal design review procedure " is needed is confusing insofar as the Atlanta Civic Design Commission is serving such a function t the pr sent time. If the intent was to requir that all major private oonst ruet1on in the oity be made sub ct to suoh review, we wish it hed been stated more clearly. Under this circumstance,. we also would like t o see some consid ration of recommended limits and cut-off points fer review of private construction . (8 & 9) .Again, we wupport th r col!lmendations that a CED pl an and tree ordinance bed~ loped . e would have pref rr d to see th se itBms headipg this particular list b cause the bottom position does ap r tow ak n them. · In summary, 111e feel the report f lla short in the most important area--the are of recommendations . We are concerned both with the recommendations ctuslly pres nted and with those that were not. We beli th t the hand of public agenoiea cone rn d with d s i gn m t ters in the city would have been str ngthen d by l) a much stronger statem-nt of the case for a CBD plan; 2) a strong r commendation that a visu l survey nd design prQgram be dev loped and implement d with sp cific reco nd tions s to how this might be done, 3) a draft of pecific emendlll.ent to the subdivision ordin no, oning ordinance, build!ng cod , etc . ; 4) firm recommend tions for a tudy of the impact of ad valorem t xation on design; 5) r co nd tions for dev lopment of n incenti s program (swards or oth r) for encouraging good d sign; 6) reco endatio r arding wheth rand how deign c.om.pet1t1on might b mploy din th .turtheranc of good de ignJ 7) reoomm.endat1ona r g rding doption of ign ordinenc s 8) recomm nd tion r arding th d lopment of desi n plans tor speoU'io jor str et, e:xpr _s ys, r pid tran it st m nd public o n p c , and o forth. thinking 1 _ incorporated in thank yo for the opportunity- of renewt thi ri l. .. nr ti e, pl.ea e teel fr to 11 o u · for further ry truly yours, JO ph . • Perrin Cha1r J ' �CITY HALL ATLANTA, GA. 30303 Tel. 522-4463 Area Code 404 DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING COLLIER B. GLADIN, Director June 2, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO: Planning and Development Committee FROM: Planning Staff SUBJECT: Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2 with Candeub, Fleissig & Associates The Planning Staff has not been satisfied with the work of Candeub, Fleissig & Associates who have been responsible for the following studies: Planning, Fiscal, Economic Base/Marketability, Equal Opportunity in Housing and Design. Although this firm enjoys a national . reputation for its work in the field of planning and connnunity development, we have found their work to suffer in Atlanta for the following reasons: (1) Most of the interim and/or preliminary reports and memoranda submitted to date consists of a parroting back or rehash of locally available facts, statistics and data. Often the facts and information submitted to the consultant or generated and gathered by them have been either erroneously used or applied with little, if any, attempt made at verification prior to the incorporation in a report or memoranda. All of this appears to point to one or more of the following: inadequate research, local consultation, follow-up, and/or general negligence on the part of the consultant. (2) Based on the reports and memoranda submitted thus far, little if any attempt has been placed on analysis of the facts, their impli~ cations or consequences, or to relate one report to another. Few conclusions and recormnendations have been drawn . Where conclusions and reconnnendations have been drawn and set forth, it is difficult for the planning staff to see how, from whence, and on the basis of �Page 2 Notes and corrnnents on workshop session No. 2 what evidence, they were drawn. In short, the reader finds conclusions and recommendations drawn not predicated on facts or analysis of the facts. In reading the reports and memoranda, the planning staff has been constantly confronted by questions in his own mind of why, how and for what reasons - the answers to .which are not forthcoming by reading further. (3) In general, Items 1 and 2 apparently have led to the conclusion that many of the technical reports and memoranda could be applicable to any City USA. Most often the reader is left unconvinced that Atlanta is the City in question in each of the technical memoranda and reports. There is a general failure on the part of the consultant to relate what is being reported, discussed, concluded, or recommended with the physical, social, economic and political environment of Atlanta. The staff has employed every known tactic to encourage and to literally force improvement in the quality of their work. But, we have not seen any appreciable improvement which we would call satisfactory. Flat statements, sweeping generalizations, techniques, approaches, reconnnendations and assumptions made in today's meeting - all must be challenged by the staff and the Planning and Development Committee. The Program for Improvement Action being recommended by the consultant is heavily weighted toward physical improvement. This is probably the strongest part of the Program and basically represents materials provided the consultant by the Planning Department. The Program is weak, shallow, sketchy and in some respects not feasible on the social and fiscal facets. We have not seen much of th? economic materials to date and thus cannot comment. Consequently, the Planning Staff along with the Planning and De velopment Connni t tee should prod the consultant with the "Whys" , "Hows", and "Wher es" until we ge t satisfactory a nswer s and an accep t able Pr ogram for Improvement Action . �Page 3 Notes and comments on workshop session No.2 Set forth below are some examples of questions. These will give the committee some idea as the types of questions that should be asked the consultant: PHYSICAL --Shouldn't your recorrnnendations for renewal treatment cover the entire City, particularly those areas to the extreme North and Southwest which apparently have been omitted1 --What are the side effects 9n adjacent areas of renewal treatment in any given area? How is this overcome? --Define types of treatment; which renewal actions should be public, which private and in which areas? --How did you determine priorities and how can we best make use of this priority classification system on a continuing basis? --What is the value of your priority classification system to the Planning and Development Committee and how will it help us in making decisions for projects in various areas of the City? --What are the alternatives of your priority classification system? --What projections have been made on land needs ana resources for the future development of the City? What policy implications are involved? --How have you treated Rapid Transit and Interstate Highway Locations in this broad scale program? Should these facilities be planned to serve exi s t ing neighborhoods·, commercial and industrial areas or should neighborhoods, commercial and industrial areas conform to the physical locations of the se facilities? --What additional physical planning should the City become involved in as a follow up to your broad .scale program? --What is the reasoning of the consultant in determining the s cores assigned for each staging area? �Page 4 Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2 SOCIAL --What and how have social factors entered into your broad scale program? --What are Atlanta's socio/economic problems and how have you approached them in this program? --How do you go about getting citizen involvement in such a broad scale program? gram? How will th e citizens of Atlanta benefit from such a pro- How can we best convince them of the need fo r such a program assuming we are in agreeme~t with it? --How do social problems relate to physical problems and how can the approach to both best be coordinated? --What social costs, if any, are involved in such a large scale program? Are these social costs reflected in the overall program costs and how are they to be financed? ECONOMIC --Are your land use recommendations . based on market factors, purely suggestions for development, or a combination of these two? --What ar e the most potential markets for Atlanta, (Scientific research and other us e s for e xample) and how can Atlanta best accomodate them wi t hin t he existing City boundar ies? --Jobs , i ncr eas ing indivi dual i ncome , hous i ng and edu cation are the . - .ii<.

The Planning Department is very interested in supporting Sheltering Arms and other social oriented agencies in the selection of sites to best serve this growing community. As you know, the Community Council is responsible for the coordination of social planning activities, thereby providing the City with one agency who knows the goals and activities of all the community organizations. This enables us to select sites which will allow the least chance of service overlap. I will furnish you with site proposals just as soon as possible. CG/jp �CITY OF .ATLAN :A CITY HALL ATLANTA.
