S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for Supplemental Funds. In attendance were: Dan Sweat, Director of Governmental Liaison, Chairman, Grant Review Board Collier Gladin, Planning Director, Member, Grant Review Board George Berry, Deputy Comptroller, Member, Grant Review Board Johnny Johnson, Director of Model Cities George Aldridge, City Planner Carl Paul, Deputy Director of Personnel Jay Fountain, Senior Accountant The Grant Review Board discussed with Mr. Johnson several major points of . concern, primarily procedures for approval by responsible City departments and agencies; administrative organization; .a nd personnel requirements. In view of the complexities of the Model Cities Program and the need for full understanding by all responsible City officials, the following concensus of the Grant Review Board membership is hereby presented: The Mod e l Cities Program as established by the President and Congress of the United States is perhaps the most comprehensive and optimistic grant-in-aid program ever offered to America's cities. The concept and intent of the Model Cities Program is good. It provides for th e legally responsible local governing authority to exercise its authority and influence in demonstrating bold new techniques of urban planning and development. It provides maximum opportunity for real involvement and participation by citizens of neighborhoods in the planning and execution of programs whic h effect their daily lives. �. . - Page Two And it promotes coordination among local, state and national agencies and departments of the limited resources which are available. The successful planning and e x ecution of a Model Cities Program can be a valuable experience for any city in its search for orderly and timely solutions · to its multitude of urban problems. Atlanta's City Demonstration Agency has attempted to meet the challenge and intent of the Model Cities legislation. Citizens of all six neighborhood areas encompassed by Atlanta's Model Cities Program were actively involved in organizing and planning for Model Cities more than a year in advance of the beginning of the City's formal planning stage. Local, state and federal public agencies and numerous private groups participated in the preparation of the required planning grant application. The Mayor and Board of Ald e rmen endorsed and supported the planning effort. The Model Cities planning staff worked long and hard to prepare the documents necessary for successful funding of the first year program. The final documents detail a bold and innovative plan of attack on the major problem areas in the Model Cities neighborhood. The Model Cities staff has made an admirable attempt to live up to the concep!: of the 1v!or:! ,,.l Cities . program. To a great e x t e nt they have met both the needs and wishes of the citizens of the area and the requirements of planning and administration of the City and federal gov ernments. l l ~ f l I I The Model Cities Program also places on all City depa rtments and agen cie s the requirement for cooperation, coordination and approval of program c ompone nts. The r e a r e indicatio n s that t h is requi rement has not been m e t . Wher e it h as n o t do n e so , each departme n t a n d age n c y i s obligate d to revi ew a nd pass on t he specific compon ents of the p r og r am w hich assig n s e x ec u t i on re s pons ibilit y to tha t d e p art ment . j . I t ! 1 iI Each committee of th e B o a r d of A ldermen s h oul d r e v i ew a nd a p prove / di s approve each progr a m component whi ch falls w i th i n t h e r e spon s ib ility a n d a uthority of the committee. I The Planning a n d Development Committee should e x erci s e its re s ponsibility for overall plann ing of the cit y by reviewing the Model Cities plan and making u ~----- - i �Page Three the determination as to the compatibility of the Model Cities Program with overall city plans. The Finance Committee should determine the financial feasibility of the program and the capability of the City to meet the requirements placed upon it by the program. The full Board of Aldermen should carefully consider the priorities involved in the Model Cities execution, its impact on the area served and the entire city as well. The Grant Review Board believes these approvals should be given before _Aldermanic sanction is granted. We feel that if the provisions of the Model Cities application are understood and accepted before final approval is granted a much stronger program will result. It should be understood that this is not intended as criticism of the planning grant document or the work of the Model Cities staff, but is an effort to gain full understanding and support of the strongest program in the best interest of all citizens of Atlanta. It is therefore recommended that the Mayor and Board of Aldermen require written acceptance or denial of each component of the Model Cities plan by the d epartments and agencies responsible for the exe cution of each component befor e final approval of the grant application is given.

EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant MRS. ANN M. MOSES, Executive Sec retary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Go•1crnmental Liaison Mr. Tom R. May President Lockheed-Georgia Company Marietta, Georgia Dear Tom: The City of Atlanta today was announced as America 1 s second city to receive a grant for execution of its Model Cities Program in 196 9. There are so many reasons why our city was able to submit and receive approval of its program ahead of the other major cities -- the support and concern of the residents of the area, the cooperation of public and private agencies in preparing the planning document, the help of the federal agencies and the cooperation and backing of the Board of Aldermen. Another significant and important reason for our success was the direct assistance we received from you and the Lockheed-Georgia Company. We have heard much talk about the involvement of private industry in the resolution of our urban problems. We have also heard expressed the need to provide for the transference of the technologies of modern private industry to our urban governments in order that these problems can be met. The involvement of Lockheed-Georgia in the planning and d evelopment of Atlanta 1 s ·Model Cities Planning document does - both. Without the expert professional and technical capability and the logistical support of Lockheed-Georgia, I think I can safely say that the city could not and would not have been able to complete and submit its planning grant request b e fore well into 1969. Particular thanks are due not only for the most cooperative manner in which the assistance was offered, but also for the personal abilities and interes t of the staff members p r ovided. �--· Page Two December 26, 1968 Mr. Tom May , Mr. Hugh Gordon and Mr. Oz Adams recognized and understood the value to the city of Lockheed's participation. Mr. Richard D. Henderson and Mr. Sheldon R. Dickstein were particularly effective in . scheduling and coordinating the overall Model Cities staff effort and providing, through their own technical proficiency,_ . a direction and organization which substantially contributed to the completeness and quality of the planning document and the · timeliness with which it was completed. Many other fine L9ckheed citizens .contributed 1n the preparation of graphics and printing of the final document. And, of course, your support and encoura&ement of everyone who had a hand in this effort was essential to its final high achievement. Again, my personal thanks to you and the Lockheed-Georgia Company for demonstrating the civic-minded attitude and sense of overall community responsibility which has long been associated m.th your fine company. Sincerely, Iv an Allen, IAJr:hdt Jr. ~ �

  • Text: CITY OF ATLANTA PLANNING DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL POSITION PAPER RELATION OF PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT TO MODEL CITIES EXECUTIVE BOARD AND STAFF -PROBLEM STATEMENT AND RECOMMENDATIONS- - Respe ctfully submitted , @~B~ Colli er B. G ladin Plan ning Dire ctor February 13, 1969 �The purpose of this paper is to identify certain problems which have arisen in the comprehensive planning process in Atlanta over the past year. The problem centers around a misunderstanding of the responsibilities of the Model Cities Program staff and Executive Board in relation to the responsibilities of Planning and Development Committee and its professional staff arm, the Planning Department. In November 196(, the Planning and Development Committee of the Board of Aldermen sponsored and recommended -- approva I of a resolution establishing the Mode I Cities Executive Board. This resolution was subsequently adopted by the Board and approved by the Mayor on November 20, 1967. The resolution specifically stated that 11 the Mode I Neighborhood Executive Board is hereby created for the purpose of administering the planning phase of (the Model Neighborhood) program. 11 · The Planning Department invested a great deal of time and effort both in preparing the Model Neighborhood Application and subsequently in assisting in developing the Model Neighborhood Plan . In fact, much of the material contained in all the Model Cities reports and applications originated and was refined in the Planning Department by its staff personnel. It was and still is our intention to work closely with the Model Cities staff in assuring the success �r -2of th is program. There appears now to be a lack of unde rstanding on the part of the Model Cities staff as to the role and responsibili ty of the Planning and Development Committee and !he Planning Department. The committee, using the department as its staff arm, is charged with the responsibility of reviewing all plans and programs concerned with urban growth, development, and redevelopment throughout the city. The Model Cities Program, on the other hand, is a special purpose six neighborhood demonstration program primarily concerned with one tenth of the city's residents and less than five per cent of the city's area. For consistency sake, obviously the Planning and Development Committee should review the physical programs, plans and proposals developed by this agency for the Mode I Neighborhood ~rea as it wou Id review plans and programs of any othe r a rea of the city for conformance with ove rall city policy and goals . The Planning Department's conce rn is not control over the Model Citie s Program. Instead, the department is simply exercising those functions for whic h it is re sponsibl e a s staff a rm to the Planning and Deve lopme nt Committee and as se t forth in the Code of the City of Atlanta. The de partmen t, as a ge ne ral plann ing age ncy, must have the opportunity to re view plans . Whe n in the de partmen t's professi ona I judgment inadvisab le proposa ls ha ve bee n a dvoca ted tha t lac k a ny justifica tion in v iew of existing c ity policy , the n th e department must have the opportunity of repor t ing su ch si tuations with positive re comme nda t ions for improve me nt to the Planning and Deve lopme nt Committee �-3and eventually the Board of Aldermen. We had assumed at the beginning that conflicts could be resolved through a close inter-staff relationship between the city planning agency and the Mode I Cities agency. Unfortunately and frequently, because of conflict commu~ications have broken clown and th is has not been achieved. The source of conflict has been a disagreement over the necessary degree of conformity between Model City plans and programs and City overall goals and objectives. The Planning Department has attempted to explore and resolve this problem with the Model Cities staff. However, the Model Cities staff seems to interpret this action as a Planning Department attempt to run their program. An analysis of their lack of understanding indicates no apparent realization of the fact that the planning effort for a portion of the city should be coordinated with the city's overall planning effort. It is important to point out here that we are not attempting to stiffle the Model Cities Program or to prevent innovative approaches to problem solving. To take such a view ignores the fact that through the leadership and effort of the Planning Department, with much assistance from other agencies, Atlanta was awarded one of the first Mode I Cities Grants in the nation. Perhaps this whole misunderstanding is based on the Model Cities staff's perception of the Planning Department as a I ine department. Planning transcends traditional departmental lines, is a staff function, and established responsibilities as defined in the Code of the City of Atlanta must be met . One of HUD •s underlying goals for the Model Cities Program was to bring into clear focus �-4problems in governmenta I organization. The department has been we 11 aware of such problems in the Atlanta governmental system as witnessed in the PAS report, a product of the Cl P and pl_anning. Tho~gh that report found fault with the governmental system, it indicated that the present system has worked very well, primarily on the basis of mutual trust and cooperation. In order to avoid further conflicts it is imperative that such a cooperative atmosphere be es tab I ished. It is inadvisable that the alderman ic committee system be used at times and ignored at others, depending on which happens to serve one's purpose best at a particular time. It is difficult enough to make the system work now • The proposed approach being offered by the Model Cities Program (which is to ignore the aldermanic committee system) would invite chaos, unless a suitable and acceptable ove ral I reform is accomplished. The Planning and Development Committee ex pressed its concern over this problem in its meeti~g of January 17, 1969. Chairman Cook asked the Model Cities director several questions concerning the role of the Planning and Development Committee, other aldermanic committee s, and city departments i n the Model Cities Program . Mr. Johnson took the position that the Model Cities Execut ive Board would re port to the full Board of Ald e rmen through the tw o a ld ermanic membe rs of the Executive Board . Th is proce dure, in effe ct , bypasses the Planni ng a nd De ve lopm e nt Committe e a nd to a la rge extent ignores the alderma n ic standi ng c ommittee conc e pt under which the Atla nta City Government present ly o pe rates. In e ffect, the Mode l Cities area is thus �-5treated as a separate entity, apart from the total city. It offers no . opportunity for the Planning and Development Committee to review Model Cities plans and to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen concerning plan conformity with city general plans. Chairman Cook further indicated that the Planning Department had certain reservations about physical plans for the Model Cities area and a sked what role would be played by the Planning Department in further testing plans for the area. Mr. Johnson stated that he felt the physical plans for 1969 required no change. Here lies the crux of the problem. Mr. Cook stated that the Planning Department was responsibl e for all planning activitie s throughout the city, therefore, the Planning and Development Committee has the responsibility to review and evaluate physical plans develope d for the Model Cities area. This pape r deals with a confrontation in res ponsibilitie s be twee n th e Model Cities staff and Executive Board, the Planning De partment and Planning and De ve lopment Committee of th e Board of Alde rm e n. We strongly suspe ct that th e fundam e ntal probl e ms a nd issu es involved he re could spread. Thus, other confrontations could de ve lop be twee n other de partme nts and their a lde rmanic committees and the Mode l Citie s staff and Exe cutive Board . In this li gh t, we o ffe r the fo llow ing recomme ndat io ns: The a dopt ion of a formal re view proce dure by th e Board of Aldermen tha t is consiste nt with the existi ng a ldermanic committee system is warran ted. In oth e r words, e very reso lu tion , ordi nance , e tc . , wh e n introdu ce d into the Board �-6of Aldermen meeting, must be referred to a standing committee of the Board of Aldermen unless such a rule of procedure is waived by majority vote of the full Board of Aldermen. A time limit on the period of review by the standing committee of the Board of Aldermen could be specified. As with all issues concerning the city, the matter will eventually be resolved on its merits by the full Board of Aldermen. The value of such formal review procedure by the Board of Aldermen should be fairly apparent. It keeps the appropriate aldermanic committees and department staffs informed of proposals and offers an opportunity for reviewing, making recommendations and achieving coordination. As mentioned earlier, to ignore the aldermanic committee system is to invite chaos, unless a suitable and acceptable overal I reform is accomplished. A second alternative approach to the current situation would be to immediately move toward es tab I ish ing a Department of Administration in the Mayor's Office as recommended by the PAS Report. Such a department would include the following functions: Planning, Budgeting and Manageme nt, Personnel, Public Information, and Data Processing. The Model Cities Program, with its innovative approaches and demonstrations, would serve as a testing vehicle for administrative and technical purposes and would be responsibl e· to th e Mayor and Board of Aldermen through the Department of Administration. �- EXHIBITS �.

  • Text: » I 0 INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND Section 10 (a) of _the Demonst~ation and Metropolitan Development · Act of 1966 requires the Model Cities to provide "maximum opportunities for employing residents of the area in all phases of the p rogram and enlarged opportunities for work and training," and to develop programs which will result in "marked progress in reducing u nderemployment and enforced idleness." In a letter to City Demonstration agencies, the Department of ' Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has outlined specific requirement s for implementation of this provision. The City o f Atlanta, as City Demonstration Agency (CDA) for the Atlanta Mo del Cities Program, has been approved for a grant o f more than seven million dollars for t he current program year. The HUD employme nt requirements are applicable to the Atlanta CDA and all other agenc ies participating in the Atlanta Model Citie s Pr ogram. At prese nt, there are thir ty-three ( 33 ) such agencies in a dd i tion to the CDA. Exi s t ing local pol icy on Model Cities e mp l oyme nt is conta ined in a res oluti on approved by the Model Cit ies Executive Commit tee and adopted by the Mayor and Boa r d of Al dermen of the City of Atlan ta. While more lim ited in scope t han the HUD re qui rements, the resolution provides that "a ffir mative action be taken to insure that residents of the Model Neighborhood Area ar e given max imum opportunity for training and employment, " and tha t "The Mode l Cities Program and �" -2 - its contracting agencies be encouraged to develop compre he nsi ve s y stems for progressivel y t raining a n d upgrading workers at all levels .... " The present need is for a c omprehensive employment program wh ich will fulfill the HUD requirements, as well as those set forth in the Executive Committee and Aldermanic resolutions. II . DEFINITION AND SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT William Grant Te r ry Associates (WGTA) proposes to develop for the CDA and its contracting agencies a comprehensive employment -1 per sonnel management program which will comply with the requirements des c r ibed above. We fu rthe r pr op o se to develop and recommend the necessary a dministrative machinery for coordinating, implementing, monitoring , e valuating, rep or ting and enforcing the policies and procedures included in this program, and to provide technical assistance and tra ining to make possible a dynamic ongoing p rogram after termination of our servic es . The project will emphasize r ap idly-achievab le goals which incorporate invo lvement of the contracting agencies and Model Citie s area residents, with the work perf ormed in three phas e s during a six-month period. III. WORK TO BE PERFORMED A. PHASE ONE - Anal y sis and Development (four months) �- 3- Du r i ng the i nitia l phase of the proj e ct, WGTA proposes to provide the following services: 1. Analyze and evaluate the existing personnel policies and practices of the CDA and contracting agencies. This will include a review of hiring, training, promotion and grievance procedures. The immediate goal will be to identify and eliminate impediments to employment and upgrading of the disadvantaged. 2. Analyze and revise job classifications for the 350 to 400 • job clas ses now in use , reducing their number to a minimum, providing program-wide standardization, and eliminating inconsistencies, duplication, overlap and conflicts_ 3. Analyze salary schedules and develop a standardized guide t o job pric i ng. 4. De ve l op a standard procedure for processing job orders. 5. Develop a prototype personnel management system for the CDA and contracting agencies, plus broad minimum guide lines within which agencies may submit their own policies to fit individua l circumstances. a. Items covered will include recruitment and selection, position and compensation, employee benefits, work schedules, in-service and cross service training, career development, performance evaluation, employee-management relations and nondiscrimination policies. �- 4» b. Specia l attent ion will be given to opportunities for upward mobility through cross-service promotion and the transferability of qualifications and credits for experience among the agencies involved. 6. Develop internal and external communication systems to: a. Inform employees of promotion , training and other advancement opportunities in their own and other agencies. b. Inform Model Cities area residents of employment • opportunities generated by the program. 7. Develop a system for reviewing and amending the employment program and for resolving disagreements. The emphasis will be on procedures to enable area residents, including those employe.d in the program, to: 8. a. Review policies and programs. b. Negotiate for adjustments. c. Participate in resolution of disagreements. Identify the relationships link ing the employment program with o ther supportive programs and services of the overall Model Cities Program, and recommend appropriate adjust ments in these relationships. 9. Devel op a plan for applying the HUD employment require ments to all construction and rehabilitation work in the Model Cities area. This will include : �- 5» a. Recommendat i on s for trades uni o n parti c ipa ti o n a nd/o r a l t er nat i ve me t h o ds o f a ssu r ing i mpr oved employ ment o pportunities f o r t h e disadvantaged. b. Desi gn of a recruiting a nd training program to p re pa re area residents for work on construction a nd re habilitation projects. c. Pr o jec t i o n of tradesmen nee d ed. d. Devel o pme nt and recommendation o f policies g i v ing preference in all construction and r~ h a bilitati o n wor k to Mo d e l Neighborhoodbased contractors, designe r s, planne r s, arch i tects a nd surv e y ors, and/ o r those empl oy i ng si g nificant numbers of a rea r esidents . B. PHA SE TWO - Pr es en t a ti o n and Ad opti on ( on e month) The s econd pha s e of t h e p r ojec t will b e devote d to p r esentation o f t h e e mpl oyment p l a n to the ap p r opr i a t e b od i es and agencies fo r their revi e w, a me n d men t and adoption . Committee resolution, Ame ndme n t of the Exe cu tive i f ap p r opr i ate, a l so wil l be sche duled in this ph ase. WGTA's role during the sec o nd phase will be to prov i de technical assistance to the CDA in the orientat i on, presentation, c l arification , discussion and revision involved in the a pproval and adoption proce ss. Technical assistance will also be provided to the contracting agencies for establishment of goals and commitments. While scheduled for �- 6- o ne mo nth , · the actua l dur at ion of this phase ma y be l o nger or shorter, depending on time necessary for meetings, etc. C. PHASE THREE - Implementation (one mo nth) The third and final phase of the project provides for implementat i o n o f t he program developed during phase one and approved during p hase two. It is during this period that the necessary administrative machinery will be put into operation to implement, enforce, evaluate a nd report o n the empi oyment program. During this phase, the role of WGTA will be to serve in the ' capacity of trainers and technical advisors, and to provide liaison between the CDA and the contracting agencies. �ATTACHMENT 1 STAFF COST AND ESTIMATE As stated in the proposal, we propose to complete this project within six months of its. inception. This will require a greater concentration of professional consultants than would be required i f t h e t i me for completion could be extended. We envision essential- ly three (3) full-time personnel. Our special billing rate for Federally funded programs is $100 per d ay per man. Your atte r, tion is invited to Section III, "Work To Be Performed" " on pages 2, 3, 4, and 5 of our proposal. You will observe that ex tensive vi s itation in the 33 contracting a g encies will be mand a tory. Fur t hermore, considerable time will be required in job evaluation and t he wr iting o f job descriptions. The developme nt of plans and systems wil l requi r e s u ffi cient rese a rch in or der to acquire t he s p ecific designs necess a ry to assure feasibility. Our f ee f or the complete project will be $39,000. This is a n all- inclu sive q u ota t ion f o r pro ~essiona l con s ul ting a nd research time, s ecretar i a l and other cle r ica l costs, d e sig n and re production of for ms, questionnaires , e t c . The fee does not i nclude t h e cost of printing and art work, since t h e volume of such work will be determined by Model Ci tie s . We render our bills monthly during an assignment. We shall appreciate a n opportunity for further discussion of this subject. �

  • Text: December 17 , 1969 MEMORANDUM To: Mayor-Elect Massell From: Dan Sweat Subject: Model Cities Program This memorandum is provided for your general information so that you will be aware of the administrative situation in i-egard to the Mod.el Cities Program a it is now established. Technically, the Model Citi s Program i8 a part of the Mayor's Office. Its budget, I.or example, is und r the administration of the Mayor , although Mayor Allen has delegated the r spon ibility for approving the disbursement of project funds to the Model Cities Dit ctor. This organizational structur was established in accordance with the Mod 1 Cities Act th t r quir d the program to be a "Mayo:r ' s Program". Th me act, howev :r, r quired broad citizen participation in the program. In att mpting to r coricil this r quir :rnent with Atlanta's committ system, it wa decided that the Executive Board of th program. would b chaired by the Mayor and would have on it two Ald rmen in addition to cltiz ns and oth r of£icial • It was furth r d cided that all re olution arid official action r quired fortl:he program would come from the E:gecutive Board to the appropriate Ald rmanic Committee but, becau e th M yor and two member 0£ the Alderma:nic Board re on the Ex c:utive Board, the other Ald . :rm n would not have to be overly concern d with th detail of th program and could act on th recomme:n• dation of the Ex ·cuUv Board With confidence. Thi ituation has er ated som · problems in determining th M yor' xactrrol in the administration of th program. Notwith tandin the f d r l governm nt' poeition th t the pro :r m l8 th r pon ibUity of the M yoi.-, our Boar-d of Ald i-m n must, of couJP , giv it anction to th d y to d y ctivitl und r oui, ay~tem. Furth l', th citi on �Memorandum Page Two December 1 7, 1969 participation requirement must be met. This brings up the question of who can make administrative decisions; the Mayor, the Executive Board, or the Board of Aldermen. At present, the Model Cities Director feels that he is on the staff of the Mayor, but decisions concerning bis program are officially made by the Executive Board. Further, the Board of Aldermen should not normally question actions made by the Executive Boa.r d if they are within the context of the approved program. Even less clear and of some concern to me is the exact role that the Mayor ' s Staff is to play in the Model Cities Program. The Director has made it clear in the past that he feels that it is his position that he answer Birectly to the. Executive Board and specially to the Chairman, the Mayor. This is only important in that you understand and approve this arrangement so thatyyou will not expect that the staff has any responsibilities in this regard. This is not a problem that requir s imm.ediate action. but it is one that obviously needs some direction. Hopefully. this will provide you with om information so that you can be prepared to deal with it after the fir t of the ye r. DS:ja �

The concepts of (a) coordination , (b) program management , (c) planning , (d) monitoring and (e) evaluation are all basic staff functions when viewed separately , as any one of them is applied to an organization chart . A. B. 2. Because e ach has as an objective to : (1) Formulate policy for others to adopt (2) Make major decisions (3) Provide staff support to delegate agencies (4) Provide planning support to delegate agencies (5) Management of support act:dvities Because neither has direct operation or administrative re sponsibility within its area . Our total responsibility is to act in a staff role to the decis i on makers . A. Ex ecuti ve Bo ard B. Mayor and Bo ard o f Al derme n 3. The Dire cto r is chief s t aff a dvisor to t he Mayor and Exe cutive Bo ard. 4. All functions o f the Model Cit i e s staff, i. e . (a) p lanning and evaluatio n , (b ) program manageme n t, a nd (c) a dminist ration should be considered as s taff functions t o t h e Executive Board , the Mayor and the Board o f Aldermen through the Director. 5. All staff divisions should be organized on a pure functional basis , using the Functional Teamwork Concept. Thus achieving : (1) clear authority and responsibility for each group of f unctions �2 (2) higher level of efficiency and ~utput within each group of functions (3) relative simplistic organizational structure which eliminates duplication and conflicts (4) proper balance among and between functional groups. 6. A practical organizational system requires a natural division of responsibility and then demands that each function coordinate and cooperate with each other function in a team effort aimed at achieving the total program objectives and concepts. 7. TQe Director , after having delegated effective control over each function, is freed from piddling day to day responsibilitjes and is able to concentrate on assuring that team work between the functions takes place and to devote more time to other progr.am responsibilit;i:es . THE NEW ORGANIZATION STRUCTURE WOULD ASSURE THAT : 1. Ail functional division heads would have authority and decisionmaking power in their own functional area. 2. There is a logical seque nce of decisions . 3. (1) The overall program policy and decisions are made by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen as recommended by the Ex ecutive Board of wnich the Mayor is Chairman . (2) The Executive Director is responsible for making p rogram and policy recommendations to the Execut ive Board and the Mayor . (3) Each functional Directo r is responsible f o r making program and poltcy:recommendations to the Executive Director. (4) Each component head is responsible for making recommendations within his own functional area. Each level would have its appropriate role and the authority to accomplish its own tasks as dictated by policy from the next highest level. �3 4. There is moreover the fundamental recognition that teamwork between functions is a necessary element in a comprehensive prcgram. BRE~~'J)OWN OF BASIC FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES 1. 2. 3.

Two- lane collectors, as referred to in th is analysis, are 60 foot right-of-way, with 40 foot pavement as set forth in the City of Atlanta Revised Street Cross Sections. (b) Berckele Street and Middle Street between McDaniel Street and Coleman Street were constructed in approximate I y 1968, to relieve a drainage problem. It is, therefore, desirable, if possible, to r:rointain th is street as part of the "redevelopment plan. 1969 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems. 1970 Clearance - Additional setback should be re9uired for the widening of Rockweli Street. 1970 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems. Long.,-Range Plans Adair Park I. Major Thoroughfares (a) The existing city strret classification does not recognize Allene-Lowndes Street as a collector. (b) Allene-Lowndes Street sho-1 Id not be classified as a collector, since it is one block east of Murphy Street, which is classified as a collector and prov ides access to the same land . (c) The relocation of the intersection of Allene Street and Lillian Avenue �is desirable and eliminates a dangerous interse ction. The extension of All e ne Street nortb of Lillia n Avenue provides only a slight increase in access to the area and would mainly serve the park, which has adequa te access without the extension, i.e., we recommehd relocation of Allene Street from Pearce Street to Lillian Avenue, as shown but not from Lillian to Lowndes. 2. Minor Streets - Preliminary review indicates all changes desirable. Pittsburgh I. Major Thoroughfares (a) If Rockwell and Fletcher Streets are improved to collector standards, it will not be necessary for Mary or Arthur to be improved to these standards. (b) A grade-separation at McDaniel Street, and the railroad , is desirabl ~ and feasible as an underpass . This will affect adjacent land use and needs additional study. (c) Consideration shou Id be given to the widening of University on the north if additional right of way is not availab le from post offi ce site on south si_d e to provide for four lane arterial. (d) Developing McDanie I Street and Hubbard Street into one-way pairs between Gardner Street and Fletcher Street was mentioned by the consultant and has some merit, particularly since it would allow the two stree ts to take on collector status without cl e aring existing comme rcial on McDanie l. 2 . Minor Streets (a) Bender and We lch Stree t a c cess to Shelton- Ste phens Stre e t sh ould not be a !lowe d . The se stree ts should conne ct into Humphries Stree t , whic h prov ides access to She lton- Ste phe ns Street, or some o ther solu tion . (b) The stree ts east of McDan ie l Stree t and north of G a rdner Stree t should be a ba ndone d , a nd pri va te access shou Id be prc·1ided to the a d jacent high densi ty reside ntia l . (c) If condition of struc tu re s warrant c le arance, Cohe n Street be twe en We lch Street and Col eman Stree t , Middle Street between Beryl Street and Humphries Street, and Hubbard Street between Roc kwe 11 �Street and Gardner Street should be abandoned. If these streets are abandoned, it will allow for the accumulation of larger parcels for proposed land use while adequate access is maintained. (d} Access into University Avenue from the north should be limited (close Welch, Sims, Ira , etc. ) and remaining access should align with exits and entrances to the post office. (e) West Avenue should not intersect with University Avenue due to its position relative to the freeway ramps. Problem of industry would need study. (f} The Fortress Avenue railroad crossing should be maintained and signals shou Id be considered. (g) Traffic Engineering wou Id Iike the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Street improved on the northeast corner. We are in agreement with the classification and treatment of streets in the above areas unless commented upon. The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs additional study in relationship to the clearance or non-clearance of adjacent land. �

  • Text: . -- .:.'" ._ LAND USE SUMMER HI LL-PEOPLESTOWN 1970 Activity Areas (a) Activity areas appear acceptable except for the following item: It has not been firmly resolved that the area slated for clearance west of Martin Street shou Id be the site for the primary school. A decision on this school site and on the location of the adjacent park will be forthcoming shortly. (b) 1970 clearance for school west of Martin Street sti II not firmly decided. Future Uses l. Boyton Street in Peoplestown is currently an unimproved, very narrow street. If th is street is paved and widened to two lanes, it wi II be impossible to obtain a buffer south of Boyton Street as shown on the map. Such a buffer could only be obtained if the city condemned part of the land south of Boyton Street, which is now used as a lumber yard. 2. West of Capitol Avenue and south of Haygood Avenue are several commercial establishments. This area is shown as high density residential. a more appropriate use wou Id be neighborhood commercial. j l It appears that 3. The buffer north of Pope Street and south of the proposed road between Pope Street and Pulliam Street will be difficult to maintain and is too small to provide recreation facilities. Controls may be imposed when the land is redeveloped to require proper shielding from t~e industrial areas. Other proposed buffers and scenic malls or corridors are shown on the plan. 4 . Park adjacent to E. P. Johnson Elementary School does not meet neighborhood standards. l 5 . There is a large amount of neighborhood commercial shown just north and south of Georgia Avenue . This shou Id be changed to general commercial. 6. If Ormond Street is continued east and west , the pa rk shown west of Fraser Street wi ll be elim inated . Deletion of the park does not a ppear to be se ri ous be cause it is so c lose to the park on Crew Street and the proposed pa rk a t Li ttle a nd Marti n Stree ts . �. ---~-- ·-~ -"' ' ' ... 7. The proposed scenic corridor to the stadium and downtown starting at Love and Crew Streets and extending along the right-of-way of Crew Street to Georgia Avenue would eliminate all the trees along the street if a view of the stadium and sky Iine is the desired effect. • 8. The recently constructed Southside Comprehensive Health Center is located at 1039 Ridge Avenue. The center offers preventive health services to all age groups. This site is now shown on the map as industrial and should be public. Carefu I consideration shou Id be made as to the type of uses to be located near the center. It may be necessary to impose a buffer between the center and other uses to insure the proper climate for the health center. 9. Land use immediately east and south of the stadium needs further study. It is recommended that no plan changes be made in this area until a detailed study can be accomplished and approved. �

  • Text: .. ·· - :... LAND USE GRANT PARK The Sydney-Glenwood one-way pair poses land use problems for the north end of Grant Park. It will be difficult to maintain the area between the one-way pairs as desirable residential and pressure will be strong to turn the narrow strip between Glenwood and the Freeway into commercial. All these factors will be detrimental to the neighborhood. Careful study should be given to extending Fulton Street from Connally as a four-lane twoway collector immediately adiacent to the Freeway and connecting to Glenwood with a grade separation at Boulevard. �
