C o x ~ As you kno~, the Youth Council and several other agencies submitted a Rodent Control Proposal to DHEW. The proposal. was submitted t,y E.O.A. The City's Sanitary Department and several other agencies will be co-sponsors. We thought at the time that the Rodent Control Funds would have been appropriJted. It was passed by the House, but not by the Senate. It looks pretty dim to me that special rodent money will be availe~le. However, I do understand that HEW has some funds tnat it might make available for some special project. The request is that you do whatever you can to help us get this project funded. Since this was to have been a part of the YOP effort, the Vice President, as well as Senator Talmadg e might be helpful here. E x - O Fn c 1o ~C H 1EF' O F' P O L ICE, H E RB E RT T .

That closer coordination between educationaand recreation prograns be undertaken. RECREATION There are approximately 500,000 children and youth in Greater Atlanta. Most of these were seeking ways to spend their suoner leisure tine. Unfortunately, the lack of recreational and informal educational programs was most acute in the poverty c0Dr.1unitiesc Realizing the great need and shortage of wholesooe recreat~onal activities yea r round, the various parks, the public schools and libra rie~, the art groups, the EOA Heighborhood Service Centers, the CoCJDunity Chest Agencies, and sever al youth groups planned approxioately 6 0 pr ojects ~ The se pr ojects coobine seve:;:al recreation, and education and eoployoen t o Many of thes e wer e youth oana ged and operated. The City of Atlanta Parks and Recreation and School Departoents, EOA, United Appeal, and several other a gencies carried the oajor responsibilities for the recreationa l prograo in the target a reas o The activ ities of these prograns varied. The r e were several priva tely""s ponsored r ecreationa l projectD. These included caop ing activitie s by the Boy Scouts, Canp Fire Girls, YMCA, YWCA, and the Bethleheo Centers. The nuober of youth served in the various caoping prograos are as follows: Day Caop Resident Cao2 AGENCY 1968 1967 1960 1967 Metropoli t an YMCA Butler Street YMCA Me tropol itan YWCA Boy Scouts Sa lva tion Arny Girl Scouts Canp Fire Girl s Wesley Hooe Atlant a Parks Depart o.ent G:1.rl s Club Boys Club Grady Girl's Club Total 681 434 Hl5 868 54 431 8072. 893~ 4440 _. 457 4010 180 754 429 200 646 70 533 - 12612 765 754 690 79 2143 430 140 1645 51 700 624 740 121 200 1463 311 150 1319 112 -900 1002 7597 7042 A significant part of the recreation prosrao is the fact that it enployed approxtoately 1,300 youth to work in various pr.ograns and activities. The Atlanta Parks and Recreation Departoent has served approxioately 525,000 youth (tu1·nstile count) in suooer recreational opportunities. In addition , a large nuober of youth have received recreational opportunities thro~gh the vurious schoo l activities . In this respect, the public agencies have far exceeded any efforts at any tine in the past in their various recreational prograos and activities. Usually, the ultioate success of any prograo depends upon the concern and �14 involvement of private groups and organizations. The vari~us pr ivate org~i-~ zations and· agencies in 4tlanta have significantly contributed to the overall suoner recreational effort.,. Many of these agencies have pr,ovided resources over and above normal expectation3.

Many other 'd onations were mde to this aspect of the Youth Opportunity Progr8c for which cash value is difficult to deterninate. These donations are listed in another part of this report. The recreational aspect of the Youth Opportunity Progran has far exceeded any previous ef£<1rts. The Parks and Recreation Departoent, EOA and United A~peal agencies have provided outstanding participation and eupport~ Scee probleos did arise, however, and the following reconmendations a.re aiced at �I' 16 preventing thera in the future; I 1.

That funds be made available to the Recreation Departoent at the first of the Year'. SPECIAL DONATIONS The fact that the regular projects and prograas in the 1960 Youth Opportunity Prograo have operated so effectively nay be due to the various dona~ tions and contributions oade for the sunoer effort by private citizens, bus~ inesses and civic organizations and groups and federal agencies. The Federal Executive Board donated 3,000 envelopes and postage for use in the Back-to-School Project. $15,000 was donated by the Coca Cola Company, the Coca Cola Bo~t ling Coo• pany, and a private citizen for the purchase of the Show Mobile.

MOSES , Execut ive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR ., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM T ·o: Mayor I van Allen, Jr. From: Subject: Dan Sweat ~ City of Atlanta participation in federal programs to combat crime and delin quency The Omnibus Crime C ontrol and Safe Streets Act an d the Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Control Act of 1968 are two recently enacted federal g rant-in-aid statutes whic h offer real promise of assistance to the City of Atlanta. With the emphasis on law and order in the platforms of the national political parties, it is evident that full funding of these acts a s w ell as additional federal tools in this area will be forthcoming. In order to fully participate, it will be necessary for the City of Atlanta to develop comprehensive and realistic plans for training, research and operational planning for riot prevention and control. There is also demonstration money which might b e used very effectively if we have the means to use it. The attached p ro posal which w ould reorganize the Atlanta Childr en and Yo uth Services Council illustrates the need for some car eful consideration of Atlanta's immediate and future needs in the planning and development of programs to prevent and combat crime and delinquency. In view of this, the following points are suggested: 1. No action be taken at this time on the proposed amendments to the resolution creating the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council. �Mayor Allen Page Two August 26 , 1968 2. Serious consideration be given to merging the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council with the Metropolitan Atlanta Cornrnission on Crime and Delinquency. The ACYSC might be the youth or delinquency arm of the Crime Commission. 3. The Crime G_ommission be designated as our planning agency for the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act and the Juvenile Delinquency Act. 4. Whatever the organizational structure, the Youth and Juvenile Delinquency programs should provide for the involvement of young people in the planning and execution of the program. The policy board should be composed entirely of people under 30 years of age. 5. The Crime Cornrnission should be recognized and supported by the City and the counties of Metropolitan Atlanta. 6. It is recornrnended that the Mayor ask the Chairmen of the Crime C o mmission and the Youth Council to discuss a possible merger of the two organizations at an early date in order that we get full advantage of the federal legislation.

The proposal. was submitted t,y E.O.A. The City's Sanitary Department and several other agencies will be co-sponsors. We thought at the time that the Rodent Control Funds would have been appropriJted. It was passed by the House, but not by the Senate. It looks pretty dim to me that special rodent money will be availe~le. However, I do understand that HEW has some funds tnat it might make available for some special project. The request is that you do whatever you can to help us get this project funded. Since this was to have been a part of the YOP effort, the Vice President, as well as Senator Talmadg e might be helpful here. E x - O Fn c 1o ~C H 1EF' O F' P O L ICE, H E RB E RT T .

The Crime Commission be,-designated as our planning agency for the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act and the Juvenile Delinquency Act. 4. Whatever the organizational structure, the Youth and Juvenile Delinquency programs should provide for the involvement of young people in the planning and execution of the program. The policy board should be composed entirely of people under 30 years of age. 5. The Crime Commission should be recognized and supported by the City and the counties c:if Metropolitan Atlanta. 6. It is recommended that the Mayor ask the Chairmen of the Crime Commis s ion and the Youth Council to discuss a possible merger of the two organizations at an early rlate in order that we get full advantage of the federal legislation.
