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.

He stated that a copy of the proposed ordinance will be sent to members of the Commission . Mr. Harris was requested to review the ordinance and present opinions and suggestions at the next ACDC meeting. Mr. Muldawer suggested that the proposed ordinance also be sent to art associations, civic clubs, and universities for their comment and support befor e it is submitted to the Board of Aldermen. Mr. Harris requested t,ha t before the n ext meeting of the ACDC members be thin king of other intere sted parties who may want to receive a copy of the ordinance.

Ferst announced that a letter has been received from Jack Delius, Par ks Manag er, invitin g the ACDC to appear at the next meeting of the Parks Committee on June 13 to make its presentation in this regard. Member s were urged to attend this meeting. Mrs. Ferst added t~t she had written and received information from Mr. James J. Hayes, Director of Information of the Bicycle Institution of A~crica. 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. Mr. Perrin suggested that at least 2 members of the Commission, and particularly one from the Landscape Architecture category, represent ACDC at the hearing. "For Sale " Signs Hr. 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 .
