Mr. J o ne s reiterated t he Railroad ' s position a s expre ssed one week earl i er on November 10; the acqui sit ion of l a nd, including a portion of Pittman Park, mus t be completed as soon as possible ; the re location of people wa s not a railro ad p roblem; the rai lroad would pay the fair market value f c, r a ll p r ope rty a cquired; and that any att empts to involve r e sidents and other public agenci e Si-'1aS urdes irable b e cause it would slow down the acquisi t i.- n p roc es s .

Model Cities maintained an opposit e po siti on : resident involvement in a ll phases of community development is the core of the Mode l Cities Program and mu st be maintained . The formulation of p l ans affecting residents of the Model Cities Area, without thei r involvemen t , iS contrary to guidelines set up by th~ Department of Housing and Urban Development. (HUD). Suggestions were also made that would get the Rai l road involved in formula- tin~ and financing a portion of the cost of �-7re loca ting people from the propos ed acquisition area i nto new hous i ng within the Model Cities Area . It was additional y recommended that this would be an excellent opportunity for Southern to b ecome involved in the developme nt. of t h e Pittsburgh community by devi sing waya t h at wou l d assis t in impeding the further deterioration of residential s tructures in the immediate vicinity of the railroa d. (Since the railroad is responsible for this d eterioration b y creating an undesirable residential n eighbo r hood to live i n, they should bear the r e sponsibility, rath er than the public a t l a rge , for preventing t his de t erioration. ) Mr. Jones said he would convey this portion to officia l s of t h e railroad. November 17 Mr. J. c. Johnson presented Southern ' s p l an to the Model Cities Board of Directors . (See minutes - Exhib it No. 2). The Board denounce d the plans and attitude of the rail road , particularly the secretive manner by which it planned and executed its program, and addit ional ly, their total disregard for involving residents and the Program staff. Finally the Board passed a resolution urging the Model Cities Executive Board to request the Southern Railroad to cease buying �-8-· prope rties until their actun l int e ntions a r e known. Novembl§r 18 Model Cit ies Exe cutive Board met and lis t ened to a presentation of Southern's plan by Jim Wright. Exhibit No. 3).

The opin i on said i n effec t, that the Ci ty ' .:, ownership and u se of Pit t man Pa rk was a superior governmental use which could not be acqu ired by the railroad t h rougl. its eminent domain power . Issues 1. Resident Involvement. Lack of a ny a.tt~mpt to solicit the involve- ment of residents in t he planning phase of this developm -·nt. This represents a flagrant violation of the requirements and intentions of the Model Cities P .ogra-m as e:itpres-:::;ed by Congress, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the City of Atlanta. If this is allev;ed to continue it will result in de s truct ion of the trust residents now have for the progr9-m as a means for improving �-9- the ir own neighborhoods . 'I'he re can b e no excepti ons fo r ex- c luding re ide nt involvement . 2. Acquis ition of a Portion of P,.t.tman Park. The Mode l Cities Plan identifies the Park as presently be ing below standards set up b y the Prog r am and by the City o f At lanta in it s Parks and Recreation Plan. This de ficie ncy is i n terms of acres, and in fac ilities by which people can en j y the park such a s basebal l diamonds , r e c r eation center, etc. '11 h e Plan a l so anticipate d acquiring th e entire Foy Brick Company in later stages o f the Program: t he use, of cou r se , would have b een a pa.rk a ddition. The r eas on for not propos ing ·1-he acquisition of a djace nt resident i a l property fo r eventua l p ark use was bec a us e the Pittsbur gh c ommunity , i n seve r a l meet i ngs , was again s t s uch a move . The re l at i ve l y goo d structu ral condi tions of these homes a n d t h e p r eservation o f s ocia l ties between n eighbo rs was more i mpo rtant t o th-3se people. Th e rai l road , on t h e other hand , has not con sidered these f acts. After acquisition, wh i ch includes 30 dwe ll i n g un i ts to be removed expressly for park expans i on a nd the Foy Brick Company, park acreage will increase about one acre. Th~s is one more acre t.han the ark now contains, meaning that it will continue to b e substandard. But more important, it means that any plan to bring it up to standards by increas ing its acreage in the future will m0an that additional homes will have to be acquired. �-10 conseque ntly, t h e Railroad has e very thing t o g a in and the Pitts burgh communit y h as ,z verything to los e - its p e opl e , it s homes, and the anticipa ion of enjoying a l a r g er p ark in t h e f ut ure . 3~ Oi sreqa r d f or the Future Developme n t of Pittsburg}~.

This include s t h e City's 1983 Land Use Pl a n , t h e City ' "' Park s an d Re cre a tion Plan, and Model Cit i es Program Pl ans for the are a . Th ese p lans represent a sub- stan t i al nu.'11ber of hou r s on the p a rt of the a g enc i es inv olved and the res i dents affected. The c o st o f preparing the s e d ocumen ts whi c h r e fl ects , i n th i s case , the d e sires a nd aspirat ions o f Mode l Citie s resi ·.ents is not a l i g h t con s ideration. It cannot be di s regarded . 'J'he Ra ilro ad claims i t s acquis i t i on of h omes t o provi d e itse lf with more yard faci l iti es i s j ustified for two reasons. F -' rs t , that the space is needed to accommodate the outpu t of Ge neral Motors; the intention is tha - more business (if this is actually the Ci'J.se ) wi 11 benefit the city as a whole in the long run. Thi s kind of think.'ng-egotistical, one-sided, narrow minded , a nd with the doll ar i n mind as the ult imate objective-is responsible for destroying central city neighborhoods throughout the countryft It is one of the reasons why Congress has found the n eed for a Model Cities Program. And natura11y it is completely oppos·te t h e short run1 coor iinated, and comprehensive approach of this Prograrn �-11- t owa rds i mproving t h e l i f e of peop le l i ving in the a rea and partic i pating in the Prog rrun .

The short run time period is unquestionably mo re critical to Pi t t sbu gh -esiden ts th an it i s to t h e ques tion abl e long run n ee ds of the Ci t-y, t 1,e Sou thern Rail r oad, and Gener a l Motors -in thi s instan ce. On th e second r e a s on, Southern believes it is doing- a serv i ce to · h e Ci ty b y r emoving s ubstandard structure s in the path of i t s p r opo sed yard facilities. If the struc ture s are s ub - standar d t o the d e gre e South ern claims, (a nd this is que stionable), t h en it is b ecau se of t h eir nearness t o t h e ra il.ro a d.

Who want s Th e people wh o c an affo r d t o l i ve on this resi d en t ial l y margina l and h ave extrem . d i ffi cult y in maintaining their homes beca u se o f t h ei r l ow income and t h e high cost of materials and labor u sed in home repa i rs. (B ecau se the homes are marginal doe s n't mc~an t he people are marginal o:r undesirable). It can be predicted with reasonable certainty t h at once the yar d is constructe d as presently planned , the adjacent buildings will deteriorate over the years. In a similar manner to the present situation, Southern ls laying the groundo10 rk for another claim when the need for additional yard fa.cili ties arises g that they are doing a service to the City by removing them. �-124. Res iden t Re locat i o n.

The use of eminent doma i n, or the thr eat o f i t, wi ll not benefit these re l ocatees. ·rhey wi ll not b e e ligibl e f o r temporary h o u sing b e caus e none is available at this time . And they will not receive moving expenses and differential payments since they are not part of the NDP or part of an acquisition by a public �-13- agency wor1dng with the Mode l Cities Program. Again,. the people do not benefit and actually become the recipients . . I . , . of inequitable treatment as a r e sult of Southern's 1non-part1.c1.pa- ! tion in the Model Cities Program. 5. Acquiring Pittman Park b y the Power of Eminent Domain. Can I Southern Railroad-a public utility-exercise its delegated power c:>f eminent domain in the acquisition of 2.8 acres of Pittman ~ l?.ark? The question is important because its answer may detennine the ' s uccess or failure of Southern's venture. If the answer is ; "yes", then there is probably nothing constructive that Pittsburgh residents can do to pre vent the plans's completion. I If "no", .I t i en it m~y be possible to negotiate with the railroad ori the I i r ues a~ready rais e d-. 11.. \ tentative finding from the City Attorney's office indicates t ~ e railroad does not have the power in this case, (See Exhibit 'i Nr- ·4), •-,J I·' I ,.·· I .i . ' �-14.- Conclusions and Re commenda tion s It is clearly evident tha t the Southern Railroad is determined to fulfill its plans in the most expedient manner. The secrecy at whic h they acquired property and the concealment o f information regarding their intent ions until the last possible moment leaves c onsiderable doubt i n my mi1d a s to what public they rep resent. It is obviously not the 45,000 residents of Model Cities or the s.ooo in Pittsburgh . As with repre s e ntation, t h e ques tion of beneficiari e s is raised. Who benE:fits directly from expans ion of the existing facilities? Obvious ly the manag ement and stockholders of Southern Railroad and Gen eral Mo t ors enj oy the fru its o f thi s par ticul a r v enture . 'l'he Pitts b urgh c ommunity s u f f e rs for t hi s plan will b e to the ir d etri ment. This negative e ffe ct · s t h e ver'y s ought of s i t ua t i on Congre s s had in mind when i t e n act e d Mo de l Cit ie s l egis lation in 1966. The obj ect i ve of which was to sub st antially i mprove t h e environme n t i n s l um and blighted areas o f cities. Here we h Rv e a good exampl e o f h ow no~ to improve t h e environment ; t h e placement of a rai l r oad yard in a residential n eighborhood is unequivocally con trary to every known principle of envi ronmental h eal t h a nd safety; and social stability. Southern' s argu.i.-uents o f bus i ness need and city service do not justify the predict.able destruct i on of a neigr..borhood. Do these reasons take priority over the objectives of the Model Cities Program? Do they justify Southern's disregard for involving residents and public agencies who di}igent l y worked to establish plans �-15for creating a bette r place to live in? Do they justify side steppi ng a host of socia ., economic, a nd physical problems-- and creating more in the process-that this Program is committed to solving ? Maybe these questions p o int to the r al reason for Southern's secretive approach ! But th e plans are no..-1 pu.'blic and we f i nd ourselves with a set of fact s -and a challenge: ·Reve rsing the hi s torical process . the ra ' lroad aware of the prob l ems it is creating, Ivi.ake and ask them to j oin us in findi ng an acceptable s olution, for them a n d for the resident s of Pitts burgh. Thi s appr o a ch must be through negotiation. which is resident involvement. '11 h e 'I'he: prere quisit e of rang e to neg o iating is between no e x pansio n of yard f a cilitie s , to e x pans i o n of the fa c i l iti es with a n impro v e me nt to the surroun d ing area.

Only November 18, 1969 On Tuesd_(;!y,..,~November 4, Stan Martin of the Parks & Recreation Department informed Eric that Southern Railway was planning to acquire a portion of Pittman Park in_order to expand their storage facilities which are now located just to the east of McDaniel Srreet. -I Previous to this date, representatives of Southern Railway met with Mr. Charles Leftwich to explain their expansion plans. They told Mr. Leftwich that they wanted to acquire approximately 4.2 acres of l·he northern section of Pittman Pc1rk for the storage of railroad cars. In return they will purchase approximately 4.8 acres to the southeast of t·he park and give it to the Parks Department and build new facilities for any facilities which -they acquire. In addition to the park, Southern Railwo)' also plans to exptmd southwesterly into the Pittsburgh Neighborhood and will acquire 50 structures between McDaniel Street and Pittman Park. I On Wednesday, November 5, the day after Ston Martin informed Eric, Reinold Dersch of the Parks Departh1ent brought a map of the park and showed Eric and Bob Southern Railway's plans with regard to the park (but not Southern's complete plons). At this tim_e , Eric te!ephoned Jim Wright to inform him of what the Planning Department had learned. Eric requested that a meeting be held as soon as possible with representatives of Southern Railway, Model Cities, Parks and Recreation Department, Housing Authority and the Planning Deportment. This meeting was set by the Parks Deportment for the fol lowing Monday. On Mondo1 , November 10, a tneeting was held in the confercr,ce room of ~1e City Hal I Annex to discuss Southern Railway's plans.

This move affects only the Pittsbu rgh community where acqui s i t ion o f 15.2 acres of land is presently in progress; Southern is currently at tempt ing to negotiate t h e acquisition of 2.8 acres of Pittman Park bel onging to the City of Atlanta and part of the 15 . 2 acre site. Their reuse proposal calls for retention of 11.5 acres to be used for expansion of their exist ing yard facilities, while the remaining 3 .7 acres would be returned to the city for park use. The rail- road proposes to finance the cost of ' constructing the new park, including the replacement of a gymnasium, swimming pool, and tennis courts, all of which would be included in the initial 2.8 acre park acquisition. �- c.Thi s p l an r aises many i ssues and que s tio ns a ll of w~ich will hav e t o be answe red in the forthcoming we el:.s .

October 30 Southern ' s agents H. Robinson and C. R o McQueen met with AldE.'rman Charles Left.wich, Jack Delius, and Stan Martin to discuss the r ailroad's plan. The Pa.rks Departme nt was asked �-4- to determine the , feasibility . of a new park design that would exclude 2.8 acres I of the existing Pittman Park, but include I . the additional 3.7 acres !the railroad was willing to swap for the excluded portion. November 5 Southern's land agents met with the Atlanta Housing Authority to determine the type of relocation assistance available to occupants of home s within the acquisition area. Because of the unique nature of this request- a railroad a cquiring property under the powe r o f eminent domain in an urban renewal area within the Mode l Cities Program-the Authority a sked the regional office of the Renewal As s is t ance .Administr ation ( RRA) f o r a n op in i on. t h at RRA tentative ly d etermine d n.Q fina ncial assistance was available · under ex isti ng regulation s and contacte d t heir home office in Washing ton, D. c. for f u rth er de t e rmination.

Mr. J o ne s reiterated t he Railroad ' s position a s expre ssed one week earl i er on November 10; the acqui sit ion of l a nd, including a portion of Pittman Park, mus t be completed as soon as possible ; the re location of people wa s not a railro ad p roblem; the rai lroad would pay the fair market value f c, r a ll p r ope rty a cquired; and that any att empts to involve r e sidents and other public agenci e Si-'1aS urdes irable b e cause it would slow down the acquisi t i.- n p roc es s .

Model Cities maintained an opposit e po siti on : resident involvement in a ll phases of community development is the core of the Mode l Cities Program and mu st be maintained . The formulation of p l ans affecting residents of the Model Cities Area, without thei r involvemen t , iS contrary to guidelines set up by th~ Department of Housing and Urban Development. (HUD). Suggestions were also made that would get the Rai l road involved in formula- tin~ and financing a portion of the cost of �-7re loca ting people from the propos ed acquisition area i nto new hous i ng within the Model Cities Area . It was additional y recommended that this would be an excellent opportunity for Southern to b ecome involved in the developme nt. of t h e Pittsburgh community by devi sing waya t h at wou l d assis t in impeding the further deterioration of residential s tructures in the immediate vicinity of the railroa d. (Since the railroad is responsible for this d eterioration b y creating an undesirable residential n eighbo r hood to live i n, they should bear the r e sponsibility, rath er than the public a t l a rge , for preventing t his de t erioration. ) Mr. Jones said he would convey this portion to officia l s of t h e railroad. November 17 Mr. J. c. Johnson presented Southern ' s p l an to the Model Cities Board of Directors . (See minutes - Exhib it No. 2). The Board denounce d the plans and attitude of the rail road , particularly the secretive manner by which it planned and executed its program, and addit ional ly, their total disregard for involving residents and the Program staff. Finally the Board passed a resolution urging the Model Cities Executive Board to request the Southern Railroad to cease buying �-8-· prope rties until their actun l int e ntions a r e known. Novembl§r 18 Model Cit ies Exe cutive Board met and lis t ened to a presentation of Southern's plan by Jim Wright. Exhibit No. 3).

The opin i on said i n effec t, that the Ci ty ' .:, ownership and u se of Pit t man Pa rk was a superior governmental use which could not be acqu ired by the railroad t h rougl. its eminent domain power . Issues 1. Resident Involvement. Lack of a ny a.tt~mpt to solicit the involve- ment of residents in t he planning phase of this developm -·nt. This represents a flagrant violation of the requirements and intentions of the Model Cities P .ogra-m as e:itpres-:::;ed by Congress, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the City of Atlanta. If this is allev;ed to continue it will result in de s truct ion of the trust residents now have for the progr9-m as a means for improving �-9- the ir own neighborhoods . 'I'he re can b e no excepti ons fo r ex- c luding re ide nt involvement . 2. Acquis ition of a Portion of P,.t.tman Park. The Mode l Cities Plan identifies the Park as presently be ing below standards set up b y the Prog r am and by the City o f At lanta in it s Parks and Recreation Plan. This de ficie ncy is i n terms of acres, and in fac ilities by which people can en j y the park such a s basebal l diamonds , r e c r eation center, etc. '11 h e Plan a l so anticipate d acquiring th e entire Foy Brick Company in later stages o f the Program: t he use, of cou r se , would have b een a pa.rk a ddition. The r eas on for not propos ing ·1-he acquisition of a djace nt resident i a l property fo r eventua l p ark use was bec a us e the Pittsbur gh c ommunity , i n seve r a l meet i ngs , was again s t s uch a move . The re l at i ve l y goo d structu ral condi tions of these homes a n d t h e p r eservation o f s ocia l ties between n eighbo rs was more i mpo rtant t o th-3se people. Th e rai l road , on t h e other hand , has not con sidered these f acts. After acquisition, wh i ch includes 30 dwe ll i n g un i ts to be removed expressly for park expans i on a nd the Foy Brick Company, park acreage will increase about one acre. Th~s is one more acre t.han the ark now contains, meaning that it will continue to b e substandard. But more important, it means that any plan to bring it up to standards by increas ing its acreage in the future will m0an that additional homes will have to be acquired. �-10 conseque ntly, t h e Railroad has e very thing t o g a in and the Pitts burgh communit y h as ,z verything to los e - its p e opl e , it s homes, and the anticipa ion of enjoying a l a r g er p ark in t h e f ut ure . 3~ Oi sreqa r d f or the Future Developme n t of Pittsburg}~.

This include s t h e City's 1983 Land Use Pl a n , t h e City ' "' Park s an d Re cre a tion Plan, and Model Cit i es Program Pl ans for the are a . Th ese p lans represent a sub- stan t i al nu.'11ber of hou r s on the p a rt of the a g enc i es inv olved and the res i dents affected. The c o st o f preparing the s e d ocumen ts whi c h r e fl ects , i n th i s case , the d e sires a nd aspirat ions o f Mode l Citie s resi ·.ents is not a l i g h t con s ideration. It cannot be di s regarded . 'J'he Ra ilro ad claims i t s acquis i t i on of h omes t o provi d e itse lf with more yard faci l iti es i s j ustified for two reasons. F -' rs t , that the space is needed to accommodate the outpu t of Ge neral Motors; the intention is tha - more business (if this is actually the Ci'J.se ) wi 11 benefit the city as a whole in the long run. Thi s kind of think.'ng-egotistical, one-sided, narrow minded , a nd with the doll ar i n mind as the ult imate objective-is responsible for destroying central city neighborhoods throughout the countryft It is one of the reasons why Congress has found the n eed for a Model Cities Program. And natura11y it is completely oppos·te t h e short run1 coor iinated, and comprehensive approach of this Prograrn �-11- t owa rds i mproving t h e l i f e of peop le l i ving in the a rea and partic i pating in the Prog rrun . I think that t his r eas on ing ic: i nv a lid within the boundaries of this Prog r am . The short run time period is unquestionably mo re critical to Pi t t sbu gh -esiden ts th an it i s to t h e ques tion abl e long run n ee ds of the Ci t-y, t 1,e Sou thern Rail r oad, and Gener a l Motors -in thi s instan ce. On th e second r e a s on, Southern believes it is doing- a serv i ce to · h e Ci ty b y r emoving s ubstandard structure s in the path of i t s p r opo sed yard facilities. If the struc ture s are s ub - standar d t o the d e gre e South ern claims, (a nd this is que stionable), t h en it is b ecau se of t h eir nearness t o t h e ra il.ro a d.

Who want s Th e people wh o c an affo r d t o l i ve on this resi d en t ial l y margina l and h ave extrem . d i ffi cult y in maintaining their homes beca u se o f t h ei r l ow income and t h e high cost of materials and labor u sed in home repa i rs. (B ecau se the homes are marginal doe s n't mc~an t he people are marginal o:r undesirable). It can be predicted with reasonable certainty t h at once the yar d is constructe d as presently planned , the adjacent buildings will deteriorate over the years. In a similar manner to the present situation, Southern ls laying the groundo10 rk for another claim when the need for additional yard fa.cili ties arises g that they are doing a service to the City by removing them. �-124. Res iden t Re locat i o n. The Mo de l Cities Pr.O:Jram has cont inua l l y maintai ne d tha t residents will be given the op portunity t o remain in t hei r ne ighborho od in t h e event t1ey had t o b e r e loc ated.

The use of eminent doma i n, or the thr eat o f i t, wi ll not benefit these re l ocatees. ·rhey wi ll not b e e ligibl e f o r temporary h o u sing b e caus e none is available at this time . And they will not receive moving expenses and differential payments since they are not part of the NDP or part of an acquisition by a public �-13- agency wor1dng with the Mode l Cities Program. Again,. the people do not benefit and actually become the recipients . . I . , . of inequitable treatment as a r e sult of Southern's 1non-part1.c1.pa- ! tion in the Model Cities Program. 5. Acquiring Pittman Park b y the Power of Eminent Domain. Can I Southern Railroad-a public utility-exercise its delegated power c:>f eminent domain in the acquisition of 2.8 acres of Pittman ~ l?.ark? The question is important because its answer may detennine the ' s uccess or failure of Southern's venture. If the answer is ; "yes", then there is probably nothing constructive that Pittsburgh residents can do to pre vent the plans's completion. I If "no", .I t i en it m~y be possible to negotiate with the railroad ori the I i r ues a~ready rais e d-. 11.. \ tentative finding from the City Attorney's office indicates t ~ e railroad does not have the power in this case, (See Exhibit 'i Nr- ·4), •-,J I·' I ,.·· I .i . ' �-14.- Conclusions and Re commenda tion s It is clearly evident tha t the Southern Railroad is determined to fulfill its plans in the most expedient manner. The secrecy at whic h they acquired property and the concealment o f information regarding their intent ions until the last possible moment leaves c onsiderable doubt i n my mi1d a s to what public they rep resent. It is obviously not the 45,000 residents of Model Cities or the s.ooo in Pittsburgh . As with repre s e ntation, t h e ques tion of beneficiari e s is raised. Who benE:fits directly from expans ion of the existing facilities? Obvious ly the manag ement and stockholders of Southern Railroad and Gen eral Mo t ors enj oy the fru its o f thi s par ticul a r v enture . 'l'he Pitts b urgh c ommunity s u f f e rs for t hi s plan will b e to the ir d etri ment. This negative e ffe ct · s t h e ver'y s ought of s i t ua t i on Congre s s had in mind when i t e n act e d Mo de l Cit ie s l egis lation in 1966. The obj ect i ve of which was to sub st antially i mprove t h e environme n t i n s l um and blighted areas o f cities. Here we h Rv e a good exampl e o f h ow no~ to improve t h e environment ; t h e placement of a rai l r oad yard in a residential n eighborhood is unequivocally con trary to every known principle of envi ronmental h eal t h a nd safety; and social stability. Southern' s argu.i.-uents o f bus i ness need and city service do not justify the predict.able destruct i on of a neigr..borhood. Do these reasons take priority over the objectives of the Model Cities Program? Do they justify Southern's disregard for involving residents and public agencies who di}igent l y worked to establish plans �-15for creating a bette r place to live in? Do they justify side steppi ng a host of socia ., economic, a nd physical problems-- and creating more in the process-that this Program is committed to solving ? Maybe these questions p o int to the r al reason for Southern's secretive approach ! But th e plans are no..-1 pu.'blic and we f i nd ourselves with a set of fact s -and a challenge: ·Reve rsing the hi s torical process . the ra ' lroad aware of the prob l ems it is creating, Ivi.ake and ask them to j oin us in findi ng an acceptable s olution, for them a n d for the resident s of Pitts burgh. Thi s appr o a ch must be through negotiation. which is resident involvement. '11 h e 'I'he: prere quisit e of rang e to neg o iating is between no e x pansio n of yard f a cilitie s , to e x pans i o n of the fa c i l iti es with a n impro v e me nt to the surroun d ing area. These i mprov ements wou l d c on s ist o f high quality buf f e r i ng b etween t h e yards and r e sidential p r operty; a park that i s up to c ity standards in tenns o f land and fa cilities ; a n underpass a t McDaniel Strc~et ~ an adequate .rel ocat i on p rogra..'1\ for t h e peopl e to be displ-3.ced ini::::luding the opport un ity t o rema in in th is area ; and an adequately des igned street system to serve the unu sual pattern that would result if the yard were b u ilt. Thi s endeavor would have to be high ly coordinated and thoroughly managed. Resident involvement must be solicited and channeled into the direction that would insure ma,"{imum impact on negotiations. �-16 - Pub:L i c re l a t i ons mu s t b e mobi l ized and p r epa red f or t he c onfront a tions t hat wi ll occur.

Subject: I II Sollthern Railway's Planned Expansion of Storage Faciliti -?s in the 1 Pittsburgh Neighborhood · O,\TE Distribute [] Hold 0 0 0 Filo _Info. Only November 18, 1969 On Tuesd_(;!y,..,~November 4, Stan Martin of the Parks & Recreation Department informed Eric that Southern Railway was planning to acquire a portion of Pittman Park in_order to expand their storage facilities which are now located just to the east of McDaniel Srreet. -I Previous to this date, representatives of Southern Railway met with Mr. Charles Leftwich to explain their expansion plans. They told Mr. Leftwich that they wanted to acquire approximately 4.2 acres of l·he northern section of Pittman Pc1rk for the storage of railroad cars. In return they will purchase approximately 4.8 acres to the southeast of t·he park and give it to the Parks Department and build new facilities for any facilities which -they acquire. In addition to the park, Southern Railwo)' also plans to exptmd southwesterly into the Pittsburgh Neighborhood and will acquire 50 structures between McDaniel Street and Pittman Park. I On Wednesday, November 5, the day after Ston Martin informed Eric, Reinold Dersch of the Parks Departh1ent brought a map of the park and showed Eric and Bob Southern Railway's plans with regard to the park (but not Southern's complete plons). At this tim_e , Eric te!ephoned Jim Wright to inform him of what the Planning Department had learned. Eric requested that a meeting be held as soon as possible with representatives of Southern Railway, Model Cities, Parks and Recreation Department, Housing Authority and the Planning Deportment. This meeting was set by the Parks Deportment for the fol lowing Monday. On Mondo1 , November 10, a tneeting was held in the confercr,ce room of ~1e City Hal I Annex to discuss Southern Railway's plans. People attending the meeting included: Howard Grigsby ., Housing Authority Lou Orosz & Jim Wright - Model Cities Jimmy Mimms, Virginia Carmichael, Betty Yarborough, Molly Waggoner , Recreation Stoff A.

Oglesby - Sout·hern Railwoy At this meeting Reinold Dersch of the Parks and Re creation De partment discussed the Roi !way's plan, the e ffect on Pittman Pork, and some solutions to th is problem. The lond that Southern Railway wishe s to give the Parks De partment in rel·urn for what they purchase incl udes a porl·ion of t·he bri ck yord east of the present Perk and the block bounded by De levoti Street , Fortress Ave nue , Fle tcher Street and West Avenue . Th is bfock coni·a ins 30 structu res (resi dentiol). The greate st concern of the Parks and Recreation De partme nt is that the pork proposed by Southe rn Railway would be long ond fai rly narrow. ihe block w ith 30 structures is qu ite isolated from the majority o f Pittsburgh res idents and th ere fore, the resulting park wou ld not well serve the residents. These probl ems we re discussed and then the Re crea tion Sta ff membe rs left.

I am in full greement with your approach . you are aware, I have taken a firm positixm ag inst the creation of anoth r national organization. l feel s you do, that a trong USCM/NLC committee, recognized by the organization, would be the beet approach. A Some of th feder 1 aid coordinator in the pa t have worked with NLC nd/or USCM on various committee and h ve had ome voic in the formul tion of the national policy of the two groups . However. with the tremendou · growth in th numb r nd xp rti e of the coordin tore, it ie obviou that they mu t be given bigge-r rol~ a roup. I upport your p:ropoe 1.

Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: In view of our inability to influence the format of the meeting of Intergovernmental or Federal Aid Coordinators set for November 30 in San Diego and the prospect of a talk session November 13 in Washington, I feel that it is urgent that a proposal be formulated that can be discussed with the NLC/USCM staff on November 13 and presented for discussion and adoption November 30. I have attached a proposal. I would like to call you in a f ew days to hear your reaction or discuss any alternate package you may have already formulated. I feel some frustration that our initial efforts have apparently become bogged down within the NLC/USCM staff, but I also conclude that the potential of a mechanism f or us to speak as one voice to the FEDS, or NLC/USCM, may be worthy of some additional effort. Larry R. Coons Assistant to the Ci ty Administrator LRC :ma Encl. �Inglewood Proposal It seems to me that the question to be resolved is whether or not the NLC/USCM is willing to give staff support to a section or division of Intergovernmental Coordinators in the field of federal aid for the purpose of facilitating exchange· of information on a continuing basis and organizing workshops to assist interested persons to become informed about new programs and changes in existing programs. If such is true, it is proposed that the initial format of such a grouping within the joint NLC/USCM program would be an open roster with efforts made to identify the individual who is most directly concerned for the liaison with federal officials in the submission and review of applications. In addition to the dissemination of information among these people, the purpose of such workshops and meetings will be to help make existing or new programs more workable at the level of implementation. I n order to provide continuity and f acili t a t e r esponse on urgent issue s, an Intergovernmental Coordinators committee would be formed to provide a repre sentative and an alternate f rom ea ch of the f ederal regions . The de l egat e and alt e rna t e would be sel e cte d at a duly called meeting or election of the representatives on the NLC / USCM r oster of fe deral aid coordinato r s from each region or, i f such repres entati ves are not so named, to be appointed f r om the region by the committee which is so formed. A chairman would be elected by the committee to serve as spokesman �and convener of all meetings. The committee would advise the staff on workshop attendance and request interim meetings with pertinent federal and other representatives to cover topics of concern. The function of forming such a grouping is not to establish a new professional organization, but to identify a mechanism by which intergovernmental or federal aid coordinators can identify within the framework of the NLC/USCM. Such mechanism is also hoped to provide a vehicle for intergovernmental or federal aid coordinators to speak with a semblance of unity in reacting to staff proposals and making recommendations on federal programs. �

In return th ey will purch ase o pprox imo tely -4 . 8 ocres to the southeast of t·he park and give it to the Parks De partme nt a nd buil d new fa c il ities for any fa ciliti es whi ch th ey acquire .

The lend that Southern Roi lwoy ..wishes to give the Parks Department in rel·urn fo r wha!· they purchase includes a porl'ion of the brick yard eas t of t-he presen t Park and the block bounded by De levon Street, Fortress Avenue, Fletcher Street and West Avenue. ih is bl"'ock c;onl·ains 30 structures (residentiol). The greotest concern of the Porks and Recreation Department is that the po.rk proposed by Southern Railway would be long ond fairly narrow. The bloc k with 30 structures is quii"e iso lated from the majority of Pittsbu rgh resid ents and th erefore, the resulting pork would not well serve the residents. These problems were discussed and t-h en the Recreation Staff members le ft. Mr. Mc Queen, represent in g the Roi Iway, then presented Southern Roi lway•s entire plan to th e remai_ning membe rs. The tota l plan extends from /vkDaniel Stree t on the west to Fortre ss Stree t on th e easl'. Fifty structure s would be acquired west of th e park cmd thirty structures would be acquired for the new Pittman Park, for a totol of 80 structures (oll resident ial).
