When it rains the ditch overuns with water, the water therefore backs up into my bac~cdoor into my house an d my whole downstairs is then flooded with water. When this h appens I have to send my children to stay at my mother until we can get th e housF dry from the water. My baby has taken pneumonia fro 1!1 the lfi'ouse being flooded in the 18st rains. I have called the Sewage· and Park Depa.rtments concerning the problem, . but I have.go t no results fro m the departments. The ditch needs to be dug de~per or something so that the water will not' be overun with water during a rain. If ~u can give me any kind of help to ::.top the the wat e r from flooding my house I would Appreciate your hepp •. I feel that you will help me with my problem.

MORRISS MEMO TO: Ray A. Nixon - Director of Public Works FROM: Ken Lancaster ASST, CHIEF OF CONSTRUCTION As directed, an investigation was made at #555 East Anthony Street N. W. to determine if we could be of assistance in the solution of a flood problem. We found that storm water from the streets does not flow into this drain ditch, and, therefore, responsibility by this Department cannot be justified. However, there is a great volume of storm water flowing into this ditch from City property belonging to the Parks Departmens. I believe, it would relieve the problem of this ditch -overflowing onto this person's property if this water was intercepted and directed to Proctor Creek. · This could be accomplished by constructing a bunker at the top of the small ditch bank or by the grading of a small berm ditch parallel to the existing one.

Delius General Manager of Parks and Recreation Department of Parks Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Delius: Thia i1 in reply to your l etter of May 24, -addre&aad to the Regional Director of our Southeast Region, regarding the Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta. I think it would be reasonable to assume that the painting itself, as an object important in American history, could eventually be considered for inclusion on the National Register which is to be expanded under the provisions of Public Law 89- . 665, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. To be placed on the National Register and thus eligible for Federal matching grant-in-aid funds, the painting would have to be included in a statewide survey and historic preservation plan approved by the Secretary of the Interior. The Georgia His- · torical Commission has been designated by Governor Maddox as Georgia's official State liaison with the Department of the Interior in the administration of this act as it may relate to the State of Georgia. While Congressional action on the Department's appropriation for fiscal year 1968 has not been completed, it appears unlikely at this time that there will be any Federal matching grant-in-aid funds available under P.L. 89-665 during fiscal year 1968. We are enclosing a copy of the act and a copy of "Federal Financial Assistance Through the Secretary of the Interior for Historic Preservation" for your inf ormation. Sincerely yours, ~~ Ofa Rober t M. Utley Acting Chief, of Archeol ogy and Historic Preservation Enclosures 2 i., I I ! o,o..',\.-, / �

From June 9 through September 1 , 1967 , we had trained 153 classes whi ch had a total enrollment of 27 .6 chil ren . In addi tion , some 23 , 077 participated during " 1 lay eriods ow t a t fall is here we have removed the swimming poo s from their outdoor locations an already t~ree of the four have been installed in the basements of various schools where showers and drain ge are available and they will continue to be utili~ed through the school year . The structures sustain virtually no vand lism (several other cities had terrible experiences) and we fully expect to place them back in operation come next summer . Your don tion fortunately was sufficient enough to provide heaters to raise the water temperature so there ' s no problem there when cold weather sets in . · 11 • ~le don ' t really know how to estimate the life expectancy of the portable pools but we can certainly say with great deal of assurance that literally hundreds of thousands of children in the coming years will enjoy something that would not hav been possible had it not been for the generosity of the Rich Foundation .

Delius: The following recommendations are made for trees to be planted in the planters beside the Hurt and other buildings in downtO\-m Atlanta. These recommendations are based on the combined thinking of some of the top authorities in the south east and include s uch men as R.Ko Smith and Elmer Roth-U.S. Forest Service, John Nixon and 'l'roy Keeble - Georgia Forest Commission and several others. 1-Crape myrtl~ is the first choice. 2- -'.ora ine Locus t-about equal to the above o 3-Juniperus scopulorum (western red cedar). 4-Flowering Cra b Apple. 'de think tha t no one species should be planted entirely~ but have at l eo.st t wo or three and if t bis is followed we reco mmend the first three above. Flowering cra b i s a very attrac t ive tree, but we are wondering how people would react if the apples were to drop on t he side walk and make slippery spots when t hey were crushed. Hr. Joe Lance and I believe that if the city is to be involved in planting and . maintaining trees in planters or any other site on the stre =ts that great care be used in selecting, pl anting and tending to the trees. We recommend: 1-'.Tha t we select the s pe cific trees from the nursery that sells them. 2-That the tree roots be balled and burlap covered. 3-Tha t t he ·trees be nursery grown. 4-Tha t the soil placed in t he planters be good fria ble top soil and that ap~roximately 1/3 by volume be peat moss. 5-The trees be approximately 2 inch caliper at the base and at least 6 feet tallo I have contactad several nurseries and find that t ho se list ed in t he dir ectory are l argely dealers that obta in their stock from other areas, and none of them handle Juniperus s co pulorum. This tree ha s beautiful silver green foliage and woul d remain green all year. It would also be a nice tree to decorate for Christmas. It can be obtained through one or more of the nurseries, but all of them state that it is too late to ~yint them this late in t he season • ,~ Distribution: ,• . ' Signed _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ W. D.

'-ti e recognize that the survival of any tree that is · planted on the streets has much to contend with in the form of gas fumes from cars, changes in water available lack of space for the roots to spread, constant handling by the public etc. :•ie know that fsome of the seedlings will die regardless of how well they are tended, but if they are watered well and fertilized after being put in the planters the survival should be as good as can be expected under the conditions that v,ill exist. Inferior planting stock is expensive regardless of what the city of Atlanta pays !or itbeo~use survival is lese likely and tne s ame goes for t he c~e neede'1 in planting and oaring £or the treos Qfter they are planted.

T o : Mrs. Ann Moses From: Dan Sweat J{./ Subject: Attached memo on Downtown Trees Jack Delius is going to make another request for some overtime to provide maintenance for these trees. Even though it is the responsibility of the adjacent property owners, the fact is the trees are dying and the City is going to get the blame. Most of the original trees which were planted have been in about a year. The original ball and burlap treatment usually carries these trees for about the first year. Then as the roots break through the burlap they are on their own and this is what is occurring now. I think we should support Jack 1 s request for a few hundred dollars overtime and he can have his people take care of these trees. It is my opinion that the City might as well get geared up to maintain the trees for the great mass of adjoining property owners will never do it themselves.

C I TY OF A TLA_NTA DEPARTMENT of PARKS Office of General Manager Atlanta, Georgia 30303 April 19, 1967 JACK C , DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER Mr. William F. Wall, President Cascade Little League 1807 Willis Mill Road, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia l Dear Mr. Wall: I I- On April 11, 1967, a delegation appeared before the Aldermanic Parks Conu:nittee to vigorously protest the cutting off of a large corner of the Cascade Little League area thereby exluding the West Manor Elementary School section and prohibiting children in that section from participating in the Little League program this sunu:ner. We were told by this delegation that the area cut off is bounded by Utoy Creek from Lynhurst Drive west to Fairburn Road, south on Fairburn Road to Cascade Road, east to Veltre Circle and Falcon Drive, and north to Gordon Road. As the Conu:nittee understands it, the ostensible reason for the above was that population had increased above the 15,000 limit imposed by Little League requirements. However, the above mentioned delegation of citizens contended that, while a group of new apartments in the southeast corner of your Little League area were included within the new boundaries , their neighborhood was omitted for ethnic reasons. I I 1 While the Conu:nittee quickly assured those present that it had no control or jurisdiction over the Little League - that, as a matter of fact, the Little League is private in all respects - the Conu:nittee does feel that since we are affording you public facilities you should reevaluate carefully your action in light of the allegations that the cutting off of the area was brought about principally due to the area undergoing a degree of racial transition. The City of Atlanta is not and will not be a party to any attempt at segregated practices where public properties a r e involved. The Department of Parks is under a Federal court order to fully integrate all property.

Box 7432, Station C Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Mr. Sanders: It was my pleasure meeting with you and Mr. Bill Finch on Friday, April 14 to discuss the possibility of developing a master plan for the renovation of Piedmont Park and more particularly making provisions for certain facilities nece ssary for the successful continuation of the annual Arts Festival at Piedmont Park. It would be our pleasure to work with a group of architects and landscape architects in developing the best possible plan and design for the improvement of Piedmont Park. This department's planning staff is so over-loaded at the present time that we would welcome outside assistance; and, we would be able to defray costs of blueprinting, etc. I believe that a permanent performing arts area which would include a stage, dressing facilities, audience seating, lighting and control features, etc. would be a valuable addition to the park in that it could serve not only the Arts Festival but many other groups throughout the year. Just l e t us know when you would like to meet again and to discuss at length the development of a master plan and thanking you again for your continued interest and assistance, I am Cordially, J ack C.

DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER MEMORANDUM TO: Mr. Eric Harkness, Planning Department FROM: Jack Delius, Parks Department SUBJECT: Master plan for Piedmont Park - Urban beautification program The Parks Department is very excited about the possibility of having a master plan developed for Piedmont Park, using donated services and skills of private architects and landscapers in the Atlanta area. Your urban beautification plan could be used to its fullest extent for the restoration of Piedmont Park and at the same time we could provide badly needed facilities for the Arts Festival and other canmunity groups. In the past, there has been tremendous oposition on the part of the public to any major change to be made at Piedmont Park. It is felt that no additional structures should be placed in the park if it should in fact jeopardize the wooded area, etc. The existing swimming pool has been condemed (along with four others) by Fulton County Health Department and we are on borrowed time as far as its operation. I feel strongly that by blending the talents and opinions of several of our better designers in the City we can come up with a plan which will be acceptable to the general public and at the same time preserve the chdrm of Piedmont Park. I would like very much for you to attend any and all meetings to be called by Mr. Arthur Sanders, Bill Finch, Joe Perrin, etc. of the Arts Festival of Atlanta in reference to the park . We appreciate your efforts to date towards the urban beautification program and pledge you our full suppo r t a nd cooper ation. J CD: bjw cc : Hon.

Atlanta., Georgia 30309 GENERAL MANAGER / FORESTRY DIVISION E:ntomol ogl 1t' 1 Report Date _A-=-pr_-1_l_l_3_ - ,___ ·l_9_6_?_ __ Dear Mr, Deliue: Today I went to the home of Mrs. Beerien Moore-3648 Kingsboro Bd. N.E. where I found the following: 1-Sapsuckers have made many holes in the trunks of loblolly pines in 4 or 5 trees in her front yard~ No evidence of insect attack exists, and there is no danger that the trees will die from the sapsuckers work. The trees are mature, but should live for years. 2-0ak trees in the yard were found to be free of any serious problem-one tree appears to have be en struck by lightening some years ago, but the area is being enclosed b:,, wound tissue, and should live for years. 3-It seems that some self styled "tree expert 11 recently told Mrs. Moore that she should have her pine trees removed because they are filled with bugs that could emerge and kill the trees in neighbors yards. The same person also told her that her o:ik s are in danager of falling and need to be removed. I assured her that neit her is a likely thing. This points out the great need we have in Atlanta to have a tree ordinance that would provide supervision of these so called 11 tree experts". and preverit them from preying upon the uninformed public. We have had several reports about unfounded insect and disease problems given to property owners by the organization that contacted Y.irs. Moore as well as other groups. ~ Distribution: FORM 34. 2 2 d~~ &4ruUU- Signed W. D. Buchanan, Entomologist �April 14, 1967 Mrs . W. M .

I still feel that July 1st is too late to complete this project particularly due to the fact that we will be in the midst of our most busy season. I managed to inspect the building every weekend and sometimes find it difficult to determine that any work has been done. I strongly urge that you fulfill your contract with the City of Atlanta by completing this building as rapidly as possible and I am assured by the Architects involved, Tucker and Howell, that they have in no way delayed making decisions on changes, modifications, etc.; and, from their statements in writing, I assume that they are presently not holding any decisions that would delay you proceeding with the project.

The Bill has now been signed into law by Governor Maddox. There has been some speculation in the press and elsewhere regarding the intentions of the Fulton County Commission in this matter, and we are issuing this statement to clarify our position. It is not the intention of the Fulton County Commission to establish and operate a comprehensive program of supervised recreation under the sole jurisdiction of the County government. We believe that the best interests of all c iti zens will be served if duplication of services between the City of Atla nta and Fulton C ounty a re ke pt to a minimum , c onsi ste nt alwa ys with good ope ration. �1 , m:il / -- A ,H ~,J ' \....i \ .1. ._-10.:,1 ~31 \OU JX 0tJ3 X .,__ rI I I -2- It is our purpose to provide park and recreational services as follows: 1. The County will try to provide suitable neighborhood parks and playgrounds in the unincorporated area of Fulton County, including ball fields, picnic ar:eas and playground equipment. We recently submitted an application for Federal assistance in the purchase and development of neighborhood and _ community parks. 2. The Commission has also recently approved a long-range com.:. prehensive plan for the purchase and development of large tracts of open space suitable for future use as regional parks and recreational areas. It is our intention to implement this plan as rapidly as funds, including State and/or Federal grants, are available. 3. We do not plan an elaborate supervised recreational program. A possible exception will be the limited program at Hammond Drive Park in Sandy Springs where the County has already requested the City of Atlanta to plan and submit a proposal for the operation of this facility when completed. 4. It is our intention to cooperate fully with the six municipalities in Fulton County having populations less than 5,000 people, in accordance with the Constitutional Amendments approved by the voters of Fulton County last November. This amendment permits the County government to provide not more than one -half the cost (not to exceed $5,000 . 00 for each municipality) of the annual cost of recreational programs within these municipalities. General guidelines for these programs are being developed in cooperation with the municipalities which have requested same. I �-~- . . U ...---- ·-·-········-······--·· A.JO~ / OtJ:3Xj ·as--··· -3- 5. The physical development of parks and playgrounds will be handled by the Department of Public Works with the assistance of the Department of Planning. The advisability of contractual arrangements with the City of Atlanta for the operation of recreational programs will be explored in each instance, as in the case of Hammond Drive Park. Where the cost is acceptable and the particular operation most efficient, we will request the City to provide services. The Commission is aware of the county-wide need for improved recreation and park facilities and services. We are attempting to meet these needs in an orderly and economical fashion within the framework of applicable laws. The newly enacted statute will provide greater flexibility, especially in the outlying communities where there are few recreational facilities of any sort. The Commission has no intention of frustrating or violating the basic objectives of the Plan of Improvement, namely, that duplication of services between Atlanta and Fulton County should be kept to a minimum. We heartily support this objective and are doing all in our power to provide services necessary to our citizens, with a minimum of cost and duplication . FULTON COUN'IY COMMISSION Jas. H .

LOKEY THOMAS F, CHOYCE JAMES B, PILCHER ASSOCIATE CITY ATTORNEYS Mr. Jack C. Delius General Manager Department of Parks and Recreation City Hall Annex Atlanta, Georgia ROBERT A, HARRIS HENRY M, MURFF CL.AIMS ATTORNEYS Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your letter of January 26, 1967 in which you advised me that you received a letter from Mr. John H. Gress, dated January 16, 1967. You then go on to quote the letter and end up by requesting an opinion from me as to the contents of the letter and such other germane documents and consequences I find necessary to investigate in the premises. To begin with, Mr. Gress is correct when he states that the original deed of conveyance from G. V. Gress to the City of Atlanta did make a recitation such as the one he alludes to in his letter. More specifically, the recitation is made in a deed of conveyance, dated April 14, 1898, between Mr. Gress and the City of Atlanta, and reads in part as follows: "It is understood and agreed that the said picture shall be used for the benefit of the whole people, and shall be kept open the year round, subject to reasonable rules and regulations, and that only a nominal entrance fee shall be charged, not to exceed ten (10) cents for each person, an d that t h e said bui ldi ng shall bear an app r opriat e sign indicating t he battle which the painting repr esent s, and a l so that i t was pres en ted to the City of Atlanta by the aforesaid party o f .the first part." 'I . • �d,,.o~ aJ______ \~ - Page 2 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 I have a photostatic copy of this deed in the event you require further inspection. With respect to the deed itself and besides the provision above quoted, the deed is what is referred to as "honest on its face", that is, we have no reason to doubt the validity of the instrument nor should we doubt its validity. Also, I am of the opinion that not only a nominal c<;: msideration was given for the picture (stated to be One ($1. 00) Dollar in the deed), but also that the additional consideration is sufficient to give rise to the theory of a deed of gift which was duly accepted by the City of Atlanta, With this in mind, the first question that poses itself is whether or not Mr. John H. Gress, who purports to be the "only living heir" of G. V. Gress, has the right to bring about a forfeiture of the picture in question. I am assuming that the portion of the letter from Mr. Gress that he is the only living heir of G. V. Gress is correct. With this as an assumption, I am of the legal opinion that no one, including Mr. John H. Gress, has the right to create a forfeiture such as he envisages in his letter. My basis for this opinion is found in the case of City of Atlanta vs. Jones, et al, 135 Ga. 376 (1910). at page 379, wherein it was in part held: "The language of the deed constituted a covenant, rather than a condition subsequent. Where an owner of land conveys it to a city, and states in the deed that it is to be used for a specified purpose, he may have such an interest as to prevent its sale or diversion from that purpose to others, or perhaps he may have an action of covenant. But such language a lone does not create a conditi on subsequent, on breach of wh ich a f orfeiture r e sul t s and the or iginal owner may recover the land . Devlin on Deeds (2d ed . ), 978 and notes; Warvel le on Rea l Property (2d ed . ) , § 317 ; Thompson v. Hart, 133 Ga. 540 (66 S. E~ 27 0) . It may be thought by many laymen that such language creates a condition subsequent, but it is well settled in law that it does not do so. If parties desire that a forfeiture shall result, or that an estate shall terminate because of the breach of a covenant or failure to use ·." �A d tl : 1 ' - '- \OtJ J Xj - .- - -- - ----------- Lil9_~~ -. ------ ··· -····-····-··- . 143.215.248.55 -- --- . ------ .·---J---- --.:-~J3J£i.- Page 3 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 the property for the purpose mentioned in the deed, they should so state." It is my opinion also that there is no language with respect to that portion of the deed dealing with the nominal fee which would give rise to a forfeiture inasmuch as no reversionary provision is contained in that portion of the deed. We now have disposed of the easy part of the opinion. The hard part is, what consequences, if any, arise from the City of Atlanta's maintaining the current admission price to see the Cyclorama? Once again, we refer to the language in City of Atlanta vs. Jones, et al, wherein it was in part held that the grantor " ••• may have an action of covenant." There is very little law with respect to a breach of covenant in Georgia and it is necessary for me to refer to other legal precedents to determine what the consequences of a breach of covenant are under these circumstances. With this as a background, I am of the opinion that the ordinary remedy for breach of a covenant is by an action at law for damages. (20 Am Jur 2d 589). However, in a proper case, equity will sufficiently enforce covenants or grant an injunction to restrain their violation. (Ibid.). Therefore, I am of the opinion without more, as will more fully be hereinafter set forth, that a proper party might bring an action against us to enjoin us from charging the fee we are now charging. The next question which addresses itself to us is: are proper parties to enforce the covenant?" "Who Pl ease bear in mind that the language of the above quo ted port i on of t he deed sta tes, " • • . the .said picture shall be u sed fo r the benefit of the whole people, and shall be k ep t open the year round, ••• and t hat only a nominal entrance fee shall be charged, not to exce ed ten (10) cents -f or each person ••.• " With this in mind, I am of the opinion that this is the type of a �-···- -----·· / AdOO,-----J .. ·' ,,·11e ) f - -- ~w ,OU 3 X ' •. Page 4 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2il/67 situation which pennits a third party to enforce a promise made for his benefit, and a covenant made for the sole benefit of a class of persons not parties to it may be availed of by an individual of that class. (20 _Am J~A92). In other words, we have a third party beneficiary contract which can be maintained in the name of any person who constitutes not only a citizen of Atlanta, or Fulton County, or the United States, but anybody in the world; which, being a rather large class, is, in my opinion, a beneficiary of the Cyclorama. Therefore, I am of the opinion that an injunction could be maintained by anybody in the world to enforce the covenant as written. I do not know exactly how long we have charged more than a ten cent admission fee to the Cyclorama. I trust that you will use your good office to detennine when this practice began. This factual detennination by you is very important in the . light of the next portion of this opinion. Although we have a technical breach of a covenant, as set forth above, I am of the opinion that the doctrine of estoppel is applicable to the situation here involved with respect to the enforcement of covenants. By this I mean that a person, or a class of persons, may be estopped by conduct from asserting a right to enforce a covenant. (20 Am Jur 2d 590). By this I mean that if we could satisfy a Court of Law that the beneficiaries of this covenant, by their inaction, acquiesced in the charge of more than a dime, this would act as estoppel to prevent them from enforcing the covenant. While acquiescence is spoken of as estoppel, strictly speaking, it is no more than a part of estoppel. By this I mean that I am inclined to believe that a Court of Law would prevent anybody from initiating an injunction against us because the entire class of beneficiaries had acquiesced to increased charges. Legally speaking, no set time is necessary to constitute estoppel such as we have in this case ; rather, it would be that amount of time which induced us to a c t to our det r i ment. It i s my thought that ten years would be sufficient, although I am reluctant to detenni ne what a Court would detennine t o be sufficient. t' · = . �'- ,,u . .> U \~ -~ - - -- ----· -- ______ l../143.215.248.55 -·-- ·- . . ···-··-·--· ··· ···--L-,!143.215.248.55..J . . .._______,___,.. . ,___, . . ·-· -···- · ···~ .·,~-}( . ~ J~ · • ,. c. Page 5 Mr. Jack C. Delius 2/1/67 I know that this has been a lengthy opinion and one on which you will probably need further elaboration; however, for the purpose of recapitulation, my opinion is as follows: (1) There are no words in the deed which would give rise to a forfeiture; (2) A suit might be filed against the City of Atlanta praying an injunction be granted to prevent the further breach of the covenant by any person; (3) In the event such a suit is filed seeking an injunction, I am of the opinion that we could plead estoppel in this case due to the acquiescence by the general public from asserting the breach of the cov.enant at the time of its breach.

In any case, however, such use is uthorized as is fairly within the term of the dedication and reasonably serves to fit the property for enjoyment by the public in the mann r contemplated . The dedicator is presumed to have intended the property to be used by the public, within the limitation of the dedication, in such way as will be most convenient and comfortable and according to not only the properties nd us ges known at th time .o f the dedication, but also to those justifi d by lapse of tie nd chang of conditions .

So also, legislative power to authorize a city to lease a part of a park, where the public right to the free use of the land lea ed is not prevented, has been recognized . And a lease of state lands devoted to park purposes my be sustained as consistent with the dedication of the 1 nd to public use. The authority of a municipality to enter into valid lease of park lands is sometimes expressly authorized by statut • The validity of a lease by the city has b en sustained where it will result in further nee of the public use. The v lidity of a leas by th inhabit nts of a town of 'common 1 nd 1 not granted into private ownership nor needed for public purposes h s al o been sustain d. "As regard the income from lea e of land cquir d for a public p rk, the rul h b en decl . r d th t uch income mu t b d voted to public u e ." 39 Am Jur 810 1 811. �Page 3 Mr . Jack C. Delius 3/ 24 / 67 (2) "When land is dedicated for a special and · limited use, use for any other purpose is unauthorized . Whether a particular use amounts to a diversion from that for which the dedication was made depends on the cir cumstances of the dedication and the intention of the dedicator, and is therefore largely a question of fact . In any case, however, such use is authorized as is fairly within the terms of the dedication and reasonably serves to fit the property for enjoyment by the public in the manner contemplated . The dedicator is presumed to have intended the property to be used by the public, within the limitations of the dedication , in such way as will be most convenient and comfortable and according to not only the properties and usages known at the time of the dedication, but also to those justified by lapse of time and change of conditions . " "'v'.'.' 23 Am Jur 57, 58 . (3) "The municip l use nd control of public parks may be subject to restrictions contained in the gr nt of the l and therefor. Wh r don tion or dedic tion of tr ct of land is made to a municip 1 corpor tion olely for a public p rk, the muni~ip lity c nnot u e it for purposes incon istent with the purposes of such grant . " Vol . 10 1 McQuillin on The Law of Municip l Corporations, 172. port Th Geo r gia 1 w with r spect to the gen r l probl com• with the general law nd c n b wmn•riz d follow: �Page 4 Mr . Jack C. Delius 3/24/67 "Property dedicated to a public use may by the dedicatee be put to all customary uses within the definit ion of the use . Any use which is in• consistent, or which substantially and materially interferes, with the use of the property for the particular purpose to which it was dedicated, will constitute a misuser or diversion; and while under the general rule a misuser or diversion of the property for any purpose other than the one designated will not work a reversion of the property freed from the easement to the owner of the dominant fee, equity will, on the petition of proper parties,· enjoin such misusei: or diversion . " Brown v. City of East Point, 148 Ga . 85 8 hn . 3. Now to answer the specific question posed by you . Under the Bill itself, we can , for a period not to exceed four year nd for a valu ble consideration, lease the subject property with the following reservation: origi (l) We can lease to a public entity for public u e not inconsistent with the original dedication; (2) We c nnot lease to a private entity for private use bee u e of the inconsist ncy; (3) We cannot lea e to a public entity for priv te use bee u e of th incon istency; nd (4) W c n le s to a private entity for public u not inconsi tent with the dedication. The d die tion in this inst nee 1 th.a t which Mr. Gr lly t forth in the deed of gift wh reby the Cyclor �Page 5 Mr . Jack C. Delius 3/ 24/67 was to be opened to the general public .

Until we have the land in hand - and I have urged the Land Agent to proceed with all possible speed - we can't really give Mr. Rich any locations or equipment needs. However, we do need the following equipment for existing playlots: 373 Thurmond (Lightning) ---- Utility pole, lights and reflectors, outdoor electrical receptacle. Gillham Park (Blue Heaven) --- Utility _po.le, lights and reflectors, outdoor electrical receptacle. Haygood and Crew (Summer Hill) ---- Utility Pole , lights and reflectors, outdoor electrical receptacle and water fountain. 255 Dodd Avenue (Rented house f or recreation) ---- Pool table, electric water fountain, outdoor water fountain.

We are attempting to locate land on Bender St., S.W. near the Candler Warehouse. The Land Agent is also trying to locate land in Plunkett Town which is in extreme southeast Atlanta near the Airport. We propose a new playlot on Hardee Street at Aberdeen (Blue Heaven) as well as a playlot at Perry Blvd. and Lively St., N.W. (Perry Homes) and anohter playlot for Haynes and Foundry Sts. (Lighting). We deeply appreciate Mr. Rich's offer and we shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth. But, if it would be possible, we would appreciate having the funds donated for supplies, milk for the children that come to the playlots, equipment, and the expense for renting busses for transportation to-the swimming pools, Stone Mountain, Mathis Dairies, the State Capitol, etc. Of course, you have already advised me that Mr. Rich is interested only in equipment. We appreciate this very much. We estimate a cost of $ 2900. to equip.•.t . :bhe existing lots as outlined above. If we are successful ~in leasing six additional playlots, it would cost us roughly $800 per lot to grade, equip, install lighting and water fountain. JCD:bjw �March 15, 1967 Hr. B.ich rd H.

Jr., Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: I am writing with reference to the Gun Club Park Site located near Gun Club Drive, N.W., and the total lack of recreational facilities in the Northwest Perry Homes Area of Atlanta. I don't believe the Parlrn Department and the Board of Aldermen has acted in good faith toward the citizens living in Perry Homes. Scottscrossing, Carver~-lollywood Hills, Lincoln :-Iomas and the Bankhead Road area. Funds for the Gun Club Park !3ite were approved three years ago and additional Federal funds have been approved for Parks construction. however. there are only four (4) finished Tennis Courts on this site. I am sure Parks Director. Jack Delius and members of the Board of Aldermen are aware of the fact t~at over fifty-seven (57%) percent of the population in these communities a:::e below the age of eigh·i :een. Atlanta was able to build a Ctadium in one year. but it has re~uired three years to build four (l:.) Tennis Courts on a Park ~it:e which will serve a predominate Negro populadon. The Gun Club site would be adjacent to the huge Perry Homes Housing P=oject. The Citizens of these conmunities would appreciate a personal investigation by the Mayor concerning the reason for the serious delay in completing thic Vei'7 important public facility.

Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta Atlanta ,. Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Allen: Some months ago we employed two experts to evaluate the canvas painting of the Cyclorama of The Battle of Atlanta. At that time, we were advised that the painting could possibly fall in the next four or five years. Already, two years of that time has passed. The City of Atlanta has not reached a decision on whether to remodel the e x isting building or replace it .with a new one and, if the latter course is followed~ where the new location should be. The undersigned is o f the opinion that a new building is needed and that it should be placed in Grant Park. Based on preliminary figures supplied to us by an architectural firm, plus the cost rendered to us by the art experts, Charles Davis has computed that it would take $3 ,. 000 , 000 to adequately f inance a new structure. Alderman Leftwich and I wish to urge the City that if a futur e bond issue is off ered to the public that one o f the high priority items to be funds necessary f or the restoration o f the painting and the proper housing o f it .

Dietl ein : Along with a numbe r of other peop le, I have received a Xerox copy o f y o ur report of February 8, 1967, dealing with the Zoo at Grant Pa r k. I appreciate you r o pinion s and concl u s io n s and f e el c e rt ain that when I select a Zoo Direc t o r that y our repor t wi l l serve as valuable ba c kground inf o rmat ion on some corre c t ive a ction whi ch may be needed. The undersigned is rela t i v e l y new i n h is j ob , h a ving become General Manager in March o f 1964; at a time when a ll o f the major zoo buildings were completed or substantially underway. I immediate ly began to request a Zoo Directo r and , as you may know, I have only recently met with succ ess when the p o sitio n was created by the City effective January 1, 19 67 . We were disappointed at the pay range; h owever, we will make every effo rt to select the most q u alified individu al f o r thi s most vi t al po s ition. I have written Dr. Reed, along with thirty o r f o rty o ther Zoo Directors, asking and advising him to pass along to any o f his interested staff the application for Zoo Director. It may be that one o f y ou gentlemen may be interested i n this position and I trust that I might hear further from you. I am r eluctant to make any change in the Zoo until I have an individ ual in charge si nce I am an admi nist rator o f eleven divisions of Ci ty g overnment and c ertainly do not profe ss to be a spec ialist in hort iculture , z oology, f ore stry, recreation, e tc. A Zoo Di rector will be able to organize and operate the Zoo to s e rve recrea tion, preservation, conservation and education. After considerable thought, and t~usting tha t you will a ccept my rema rks in the same context which I accepted your report, I would l i ke to c omment on your conclusions r eached on Page 3, paragraph 3 in referen c e to the Reptile House. Fir st of all , we are not remodel ing the Reptile House. It would take several �Mr. Donald R. Dietlein Page Two pages to des c ribe to y ou t he d if fi culties involved in the cages o f this building but basically the facts are these. The same Ar ch i tect designed t he Reptile House as did the Primate and Feline Buildings. About the time the Reptile House wa s nearing completi on, we noti ced a strong irritant in the air which caused one 1 s eye s to wa ter and a burning of the throat. It smelled like f o rmaldehyde t o me b ut we engaged a toxicologist at the Communi cabl e Disease Ce nter in At lanta to verify this. The next problem was of course what was causing the formaldehyde. We employed a wood technician, a Dr. James Rice at the University o f Georgia. Dr. Rice has spe nt most of his academic career working with particle and chip board. The cages were made of particle b o ard and it was a n atura l thing for Dr. Rice to investigate the proble~s encountered with thi s material. About this time, the c ages began t o s we ll and b loat and materials which we re one inch thi c k expanded t o l ½ inches. The d ime nsional intergrity of the c ages simply coll apsed. We refus ed to open the building to the general publi c in that, in the opinion of our legal counsel, to do so woul d be evide nce o f acceptance of the building. The Archite ct blamed the builder, the builder blamed the Architect, and the subcontractor bl a med the supprer. We have had several dozen meeti ngs over this problem and have called in e x perts in several fields. The end re sult is that we are replacing the cages with o ne s built o f fiber glass to be enclosed in an exterior grade plastic impregnated plywood . I can assure you t hat so much money is involved and the legal entanglement is so compli cated, that as Director of this department I would not be so f oolish as to allow a lay curator" carte blanche" privileges to reorganize and remodel a $38 0 ,0 00 building. I do n 1 t have that type of authori ty - thank g oodness - and don 't desire it. Cage replacement is being supervised by the City's Building Inspector, Law Department, and this depart ment. 11 11 Now as t o the statement that the Curator is a lay curator o r amateur. This reflects on the Civil Serv ice department of the City of Atlanta in that Mr. Dobbs sco red the highest among the approx i mately 16 app lica n ts f or the job. The test was conducted by a doctor of veterinary medicine, a PhD wi th his doctorates in Zoology (Reptiles ), and a c linical psychologist trained in testing. Of the 16 appli ca nts, seve ral had Ma sters Degrees but no practic a l e x perience . Mr. Dobbs is y oung and has only a high schoo l d iploma . However , he s eems to hold his own wi t h people in si milar positions a nd has made quite an impressive re cord f or the s h o r t time he has been in Atlanta. He is complete ly dedica ted to his work, was reared in a zoological environment since h i s pa r e nts are in the business, and has in eve,ry way attempted to be p ro fe s s ional as far as I . am personally co ncerned. He plans to ente r e vening college in the near future. Of course, re too received a copy of your repo r t and, to say the least, your remarks tha t he was a "lay CuDator" were cruel, e x cessive, unne c essary , a nd completely inaccurate. The damage is done, the word is out a n d I can only ·say that it is a surprise to me that three gent l e men r epresenting the National Zoological Park would make such a cap r ici ous remark without thoroughly investigating �Hr . Donald R. Dietlein Page Three the ba ckg round of the circumstances of the building and the qualifi ca t ions of the Curator. You have, in all fairness, been given some erroneous information. As t o Page 4 , paragraph 7, I am at a complete loss as to how you determ ined that there is a need to improve the cooperation bet ween the Zoo and educational system that controls the ·-science room in the Primate House. I believe you made your inspection on a Saturday and therefore would nd:have had an opportunity to meet the Te a cher assigned to the science room. I have contacted the instructor and she is at a complete loss to know exactly what y ou are talking about. She also wo~ders as to where there is a lack of cooperation between the Zoo and the educational system. She suggested that possibly that it may be at a higher echelon since it certainly does not exist at her level. I have co nta cted the Superintendent of Schools and he too is at a loss. Need less to say, vast improvements can be made in the utilization o f the Zoo as an educat±onal tool and as soon as we have a qual ified Director one of his duties will be to develop a complete educational program. I think it is worth noting that at the co nvent ion held at Houston, Texas :·.two years ago, the AAZPA recomme n ded our educational system as a guide and we were flooded with q uesti onnaires from interested zoos who wanted to include a science room in their zoological complex. Again, in all fairness to you, I believe you have been given some erroneous information. The individual who is distributing your report transmits it with a cover l etter stating that the three of y9u are very brilliant men. I am sure this is the case or you wouldn't be ·a ssociated with our . nati onal zoo if you were not top notch. I hope you are also m<=n enough to apologize to our Curator of Reptiles, and retract y our statement concerning the blank check approach to 'remodeli ng" the Reptile Building.

DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER Mr. Charles L. Davis Comptroller City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Re: EOA's Recreation Funds Dear Charles: 1-..s you know by nm,r , Economic OJ:portuni ty tlant: slashed from their budget appropriation all funds rtaining to Recreation and therefore cancelled as of December 31, 1966 the three separate and distinct contracts under which this department of City Government carried out specialized recreation programs. These programs were namely the Neighborhood Playlot l ·rogram, Summer Recreation and Job Opportunity for Youth (Operation Champ), and recreation for senior high rise apartment dwellers. It is the opinion of the undersigned and Mis s Carmichael that the neighborhood playlot program takes priority over the t wo other projects. This opinion is one shared in by Mayor Allen. The number of playlots continues to grow as we attempt to meet the needs and demands of citizens in deprived areas. It is anticipated that Ne will shortly have a total of twenty-one neighborhood playlots, t,m of ,,'lhich involve the renting of dwellings for a year-round type operation. Since the cancellation of EOA funds, we have continued operating a few of these playlots on a part-time b asis, good •;reather permitting. The hasic expense involved is one of salaries and the rather substantial expense of renting outdoor toilets. Salaries are being charged to account 780C, Extra Help, Umpires, etc. and the renting of the portable john s is being charged to 771C. Account 780C does not contain sufficient appropriations to carry on a full time summer program at these twenty-one locations. For your information, the following playlots either exist or are under construction or in the negotiating stage; A �Mr. Charles L. Davis Page Tl-TO 1. Rhodes St. Between Sunset D Vine (Vine City) 2.

The Supervisor will work a total of 5 4 hours per week. As the above list indicates, there are approximately twenty-one playlots to operate. Of these, a total of fourteen are existing and seven are under development or the land is in the process of being leased. Each lot will have supervision for a total of nine hours per day, fifty-four hours per week, or eighty-two work days for a total of 738 hours. A total for all lots of 1 4 ,760 man hours of Community Recreation Leaders time, amounting to $38,929 .60; plus the Supervisors time amounting to $2,302.56 for a grand Recreation salary total expense of $31.232.16. (830C) Presently, four men each are ,_,rork ing thirty-two hours per pay period doing clean- up and maintenance work on the existing playlots . This fo ur man crew consists o f a Fark Foreman II, (2) Labor Foremen II, and (1) Laborer. They are paid straight ove rti me on the basis of a Park Foreman II, Equipment Operator I, Labor Foreman II, and one Laborer's pay. I ,..,ould suggest this arrangement be maintained since most personnel declined to work overtime and these individuals are willing to work. Park Foreman II earn $3.53 per hour; the Equipment Operator I is paid $1.88 per hour; Labor Foreman II is paid $2033 per hour; and the Laborer is paid $1.5~ per hour. These men will be involved in approximately ten pay periods at 32 hours per pay period times $9.23 per hour for a total of $1,453.60. {Maintenance is a twelve month item - this figure is just for the summer) Thus, total Recreation and Maintenance salary cost will be $32,686.00. 1 r.-J e will keep as many .

" The above appears to solve the problem of summer operations but leaves unansi:,r ered the long and beautiful fall and spring days - and for that matter some ,.,rinter days - uhen the playlots should be operated.

I have had a number of people complain to me about the cleanliness of the Children' s Zoo at Grant Park. From personal observation, I would say that it is maintained not on an unclean basis, but an untidy basis. I think perhaps some of the untidiness is brought about by the he vy density of traffic on certain days , plus the fact that in many instances they are short-cutting across the grass and through the sh•ubbery, rather than staying on the walks . I would ugge t that you eonsid r a simple single tr n of link chain to prevent people from walking across certain areas. S condly, that you in titute a con tant clean-up, pick•up service in the e particular areas to be certain that there are never any ign of untidine such as cigarette butts, gum wrapper , paper, etc. lAJr:am �February 10, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO Jack Delius FROM Ivan Allen, Jr . I have a note that the Parks Committee asked that I receive a portion of the minutes held on January 10th. Please instruct the Parks Committee that I am to receive the complete minutes from each meeting. IAJr:am �January 10, 1967 The regular monthly meeting of the Aldermanic Parks Committee was held January 10, 1967, at 2:00 P.M. in Committee Room #2 , City Hall. Present were Messrs. Buddy Fowlkes , Q. V. Williamson, and Everett Milli can. Also present were Messrs. Jack C. Delius, Stan Mar tin, F. W. Boswell, J. D. Chamblee and Thomas F. Choyce, Associate City Attorney. The minutes o f the previous meeting were approved. 4 Mr. Choyce advised the Committee that Mr~ Henry L . Bow.den, City Attorney, had turned over to him the matter o f the loco~otive, which wa s originally placed at Southeastern Fair Grounds by the Parks Department. He further advised that, legally, the locomo tive still b-elongs to the City of Atlanta. Mr. Millic an made a motion that the City claim its title to the train and a sk the Atlanta and West Point Railroad to find a suitable location for temporary storage. Mr. Millican added that the Parks Departmen t shou ld contact the Southwestern Corporation to see if the train may be placed as an exhibit in Six Flags Over Georgia, the City at all times retaining title to the locomotive. Mr. Williamson seconded the motion which was duly carried. Mr. Choyce also informed the Committee that the Parks Department does, in fact, have the right by virtue o f dedi cation to use for park p ;.1rposes the triangular parcel of p rope rty at Tremont Drive. Mr. Choyce stated that he had obtained a deposition from ~arie Coney, who stated in part that, when she was sold treproperty that she n ow owns, she was told that this triangular piece of property was to be used for a park for the children in the neighborhoo d . She furthe r stated that she had lived there since 1949 and had always tho'..1ght of this property as being a park. A Mr. Bennett, who sold the property to Marie Coney, has said that he would also be wil ling to give a deposition. The Com..~ittee directed Mr. Delius to obtain an accurate survey of the property before a final decision as to its use is made. · Mr. Delius presented a resolution to pay Mrs. Josephine Davis, Recreation Leader, an employee of the departm,ent since 19 46, time lost due to illn~ss, in addition to her accumulated sick time, not to exceed sixty days beginning December l, 1966. This resolution was a pproved by the Committee. Mr. Delius presented a letter from Mr . s. A. Furlong, dated Janua ry 1, 1967, requesting that retirees be allowed to play golf at a reduced rate of . 75¢. The Committee took no action on this request and asked that the letter be filed. M:i: - . De liu s advised the Commi ttee that he had received a note from ~r. Tom Bradley, Evangelist, thanking him f or his 1966 park pass and ask ing that the pass be renewed for 1967. The Committee denied this request. �L. .. ,.._..,_ .. ···- ·- --- - ---- - Page Two Mr. Delius reiterated the fact that all EOA funds for recreation have bee n cut off as of December 31, 1966. Mr. Delius f urther explained that we have been opera ting under three different contracts with EOA funds - senior high rise program, neighborhood playlot program, and sum~er recreation program (Operation Champ). Mr . Delius stated that EOA has now asked that the City assume their recreation programs. Mr. Delius inform3d the Committee that it would be impossible for the Parks and Recreation Department to continue to carry on the three programs we have operated i n the past on City funds alone without curtailing other existing recreation programs. He stated that the senior high rise program already has been terminated. Mr. Millican directed Mr. Delius to write a letter to Mr . Charles Davis, City Comptroller, with copies to the Mayor and all members of the Finance Committee, setting forth in itemized form the expenses involved in continuin-J these pro9rams, st ressing the fact that these activities will have to be curtailed unless financial help is fo~thcoming, and asking for their direction in this matter. · 1 There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting was adjourned.

DELIUS GENERA L MANAGER Mr. Charles L . .:Javis Comptroller City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Re: EOl'. 1 s Recreation Funds Dear Charles: l--.s you know by now , Economic Or;portuni ty Atlanta has had slashed from their budget appropriation all funds pertaining to Recreation and therefore cancelled as of December 31, 1966 the three separate and distinct contracts under whi ch this department of City Government carried out specialized recreation programs. These programs were namely the Nei ghborhood Playlot frogram, Summer Recreation and Job Opportunity for Youth (Operation Champ), and recreation for senior high rise apartment dwellers. It is the opinion of the undersigned and Miss Carmichael that the neighborhood playlot program takes priority over the two other projects. This opinion is one shared in b y Mayor Allen . The number of playlots continues to grow as we attempt to meet the needs and demands of citi zen s in deprived areas . It is anticipated that we wi ll shortly have a total of twenty- one neighborhood playlots, tNo of ,,,hich involve the renting of dwellings for a year-round type operation. Si nce the cancellation of EOA funds, ,..,.e have continued operating a few of t h ese play lots on a part -time basis , good ;reather permitting. The ba si c expense involved is one of salaries and the rather substantial expense of renting outdoor toilets. Salari e s a re being charged to account 780C, Extra Help, Umpires, etc. and the renting of the portable johns is being charged to 771C. Account 780C does not contain sufficient appropriations to carry on a full time summer program at these twenty-one locations. 1 For your information, the following playlots either exist or are under construction or in the negotiating stage; �Mr. Charles L.
