Atlanta, Georgia 30331 Dear Mr. Glover: Thank you very much for your letter of Mey 7, 1969 advising me that a golf starter at Piedmont Golf Course cursed you on May 6, 1969 for moving a ball in the rack so you could read what number was up next. I am immediately submitting your letter to Mr. Pierce Whitley, Assistant COneens Manager of Farks, for investigation. I will not, and do not, permit profanity on the part of our employees toward the citizens of this City. However, we have had constant problems with various golfers attempting to move up their ball in the rack at Piedmont Park, and I can well imagine on some occasions there might be excessive frustation on the part of the starter. Thank you again for calling this matter to my attention, and I am Cordially, Jack C.

  • Text: Minutes of Aldermanic Parks Meeting ; February 11, 1969 The regular monthly meeting of the Aldermanic Parks Committee was held Tuesday, February 11, 1969 at 2:00 P.M. in Committee Room No.2, City Hall. Present were Aldermen Charlie Leftwich, Chairman, Douglas L. Fowlkes, Vice Chairman, and G. Everett Millican. Also present were Messrs. Jack C. Delius, General Manager of Parks and Recreation, J.’ D. Chamblee, Parks Maintenance Superintendent, A. P. Brindley, Parks Engineer, Edwin Vaughn, Office Manager, Jim Davey, Golf Pro at Bobby Jones Golf Course, and Mr. Henry England, Foreman of Bobby Jones. Miss Virginia Carmichael, Director of Recreation, and Miss Jimmie Mims, Assistant Director of Recreation, were also present. Chairman Leftwich called the meeting to order and the minutes of the last regular meeting of January 14, 1969, as well as the minutes of a called meeting of February 3, 1969, were approved. Mr. Gene Hay, Public Links Committeeman for the United States Golf Association, appeared first before the Committee. He made a request on behalf of his organization that the City of Atlanta allow the use of one of the City's golf courses for the purpose of a City Public Links Championship playoff in 1969, with the City Champion from this competition to go to the National Competition, which would be held on June 17, 1969. Mr. Hay told the Committee this would necessitate closing whichever City golf course would be used for two days; one day would be for the Sectional Qualifying Rounds and one day for the Amateur Public Links Championship. Mr. Hay also asked that the greens fees be waived for those participating in the competition. Committee asked Mr. Hay if members of private clubs were eligible for this competition. Mr. Hay replied that they were not eligible and it was also mentioned that private clubs do have their own championships. Since the National Compe- tition is held June 17, it was thought the City Qualifying Rounds and Championship playoff should be held sometime in May or June prior to and well in advance of the National Competition. It was also mentioned that these two days should be weekdays. Mr. Hay was thanked for coming before the Committee and advised that it would be discussed further in Executive Session. Mr. Frank Cantrell, 4930 Roswell Road, Atlanta, Georgia appeared before the Committee to request permission to put on some rock and roll shows at the building that is presently occupied by Municipal Theater at Chastain Memorial Park. This is the building, it was explained, that Municipal Theater still owes a large balance on. Mr. Delius mentioned that Municipal Theater's General Manager, Mr. Chris Manos, had called his office on January 28, 1969, stating that their original debt had amounted to around $30,000.00 - that they had paid it down to $19,000.00 and would like a chance to finish paying this debt. If it developed that the lease with Municipal Theater was not renewed, it was stated that the Parks and Recreation Department nad great need on the buildings. Wr, Chamblee ssid tne Parke Denartment néziade additional storage apace at Chastain Memorial Park, and Miss Ga rinichac] stated that the Recreation Division could also make good use of the building if it became available. The Committee explained to Mr. Cantrell that many groups had requested use of the building but even if Municipal Theater vacates the building, it was not likely that any of these requests would be granted since the City has need of the building. Mr. Cantrell was thanked for appearing * fore the Committee and told he would be advised if the situation chs sed. . Next to appear before the Committee was Mr. Carl Flint, of 1346 Peach Valley Road, Atlanta, Georgia. It was explained that he had written to Alderman Leftwich concerning twenty to forty acres in front of his home. Mr. Delius mentioned that this acreage was actually Daniel Johnson Park. Mr. Flint explained that he had written in regard to keeping a horse on the land and that there were very few children of "park age" in the vicinity. He also stated that there was a sewer problem on the acreage, that he had "been killing larvae and skimmers...." Alderman Millican said we would have to check the sewage proble~: Chairman Leftwich suggested that Alderman Millican go by and ch . it and that he would also go by and look at it. Mr. Brindley told the Committee that he believed this land consisted of eight to twelve acres but that the boundaries were vague - that at one time the former Parks Manager, Mr. Simons, had tried to find the boundaries. Chairman Ieftwich stated that he would like for the Geseral Manager to check the deed and that we should try to find ju:c where the property lines are and look into reopening the development of this park. He also told Mr. Flint that the Park might be restricted to park use. Mr. Flint was thanked for coming to the meeting. At this time, Mr. Helius introuw'ced Mr. Edwin Vaughn, new Office Manager for the Parks Department, to the Committee, who wished him good luck in his new ‘ob. The General Manager informed the Committee that the Showmobile will be put to a new use for the public as a voting booth in an area known as Johnson Estates, . Mr. Delius told the Conmittee that a citizen, Mr. J. M. Ford, III, had complained sometime ago about an incident at the Bobby Jones Golf Course, and that it had been discussed with the Committee before. However, Alderman Cook wanted moire details on the incident and so the General Manager had askeu che Golf Pro, Mr. Davey, the Foreman, Mr. England, and any other employees they thought necessary, to attend today's meeting in order to discuss the incident. According to our information, Mr. Delius explained, this citizen was apparently told that he could not let his five-year-old son accompany him on the course, but later said he was advised if he would rent an electric golf cart that permission could be granted. The citizen was indignant since he felt that it would be as dangerous for his son to accompany him in a cart as it would be otherwise. Both Messrs. Davey and England reiterated what they had said in October (when the matter was first discussed), that they knew nothing whatsoever about the incident. However, the Golf Starter, who had come to the meeting, stated that he might have said something that was misunderstood. He said that he had told a citizen (who had been accompanied by a child) that he had heard of another solr cource nesr Marietta where sappsrently enildren could accompany adults on the course. He explained that he understood this was a semi-vrivate course. Alderman Millican stated that if anyone had talked rudely to the man or if anyone thought oe this had happened, that we write a letter of apology. However, the Committee reaffirmed its position on the regulations prohibiting non-players on the golf course. It was mentioned that in the past there had been many citizens who followed golfers, placing bets, etc. The fact that non-players also crowd the course, slowing down the game, as well as the element of danger in being hit with a golf ball, was discussed. The Committee Members asked Mr. Davey, the Golf Pro, if these regulations regarding non-players were posted in a prominent place in the clubhouse and Mr, Davey replied that they were. He also stated that many times a golfer will make all arrangements to play and that the children who accompany them will not appear until the golfer is ready to tee off, apparently having been kept in the golfer's automobile until he is ready to play. Apparently, this has been a problem for the employees at the golf courses who wish to carry out the rules without offending any citizens. It was decided that, if a citizen had been offended, a letter should be written to him apologizing for any rudeness, but that the regulations be adhered to. Committee thanked Messrs. Davey and England for coming to the meeting. Mr. Delius told the Committee he would like permission to request a resolution authorizing sick leave amounting to ten days over and above accumulated sick time in the instance of two Parks employees: Mr. Roger 0. Stroupe, Position Number 282, Equipment Operator I, and Mr. Cooper Landers, Position Number 479, Equipment Operator I. He explained that theyhad been faithful employees in the Parks Department and each had experienced a siege of sickness that had used all their sick leave. Committee granted request. The General Manager told the Committee that $6,000.00 additional funds were needed to solve the heating problem in the Reptile House and that Mr. Fred Shepherd, Building Inspector, had concurred in this. Committee authorized request. Dale Creek Park was discussed and the fact that there were very few records on it. Committee authorized a resolution for the City Attorney to have a title report made on this property fronting on the north- easterly side of Dale Creek Drive between Forest Ridge Drive and Collier Ridge Drive in order to determine the property lines. The General Manager told the Committee that the recreation programs the Parks and Recreation Department had attempted to have in the Morningside School area had apparently conflicted with the wishes of residents, including the principal, and that we had been told these citizens didn't want such activities as dances, etc., which would bring about "boy/girl relationships at such an early age," and that after reviewing the complaints with the Recreation staff, had moved the program to Garden Hills where we do have a building. It was thought that if the community should change its opinion, a meeting could be held with all parties involved to work out some type of suitable program. Mr. Delius informed the Committee that the Parks Engineer, Mr. Brindley, had now designed a historical marker for "The Battle of Ezra Church." Originally it had been planned for either Mozley or Anderson Park, but Mr. Delius said he had been told by Mr. Rembert, a former City Services Coordinator for the Dixie Hills area, that there were very strong feelings among young Negroes in that area against the placing of any Civil War markers in these parks. However, Mr., Delius said that he had been advised by Mr. Beverly DuBose that it might be possible to have a small part of Westview Cemetery for this marker and that it would be appropriate since this area was actually a part of the battle. Mr. Delius was asked to contact the proper people to see if this could be done. Mr. Delius presented a letter from Thompson and Hancock Architects regarding the proposed Cyclorama building. The letter stated that both architectural groups that had been selected to work on this project were now in agreement as to just how they would proceed and who would be in charge of the various phases. The letter stated that Mr. R. H. Thompson, of Thompson and Hancock, would be the Project Manager, while Mr. Bill Finch, of Finch, Alexander, Barnes, Rothchild, and Paschal Architects, would be the Project Architect. The letter stated that the work would be performed at 3033 Maple Drive, Atlanta, Georgia, and that the City would shortly receive another letter with further details. Committee asked Mr. Delius to request a similar letter from the firm of Finch, Alexander, Barnes, Rothchild, and Paschal Architects stating the same agreements as are stated in the letter from Thompson and Hancock. They also instructed Mr. Delius to ask Mr. Weis Snell, who at the present time is cleaning and restoring the foreground of the Cyclorama, to head up the moving of this ground work whenever the project is far enough along for this to be done, Committee discussed the White Alms House at Chastain Memorial Park and the fact that ballet is still being practiced there despite the condemnation of the building by the City Building Inspector. The General Manager was instructed to write a letter to the Fulton County Manager with copy to go to Mr. Bill Wofford, City Buiiding Inspector, reminding him that the City has condemned the building as being unsafe for such activity, and restating our position that it should be repaired or demolished. Aliso go on record that the City assumes no responsibility for any injuries that may be sustained due to such program. It was thought that the City could be placed in a very embarrassing position if someone should be injured here after the City has condemned ‘the building. The General Manager told the Committee he had received a request from Mr. Charles D. Hurt, Jr., a member of the Junior League of Atlanta, that the City consider converting the old Cyclorama building into a Children's Museum when the new building is finished to house the painting. A possible museum was discussed. The General Manager said he would like to see a new museum along with the new buildings Por the display of Civil War items annrovriate to the painting. Alderms Fowlkes asid it would depend on the cost and that we vould know wor whenaver the architects are able to give us an idea of what it will cost. Committee was of the opinion that it is too early to know what disposition will] be made of the old buildins, eens The Adamsville Health Center was discussed briefly. It was suggested that the’ General Manager might write to the County officials, telling them "the twenty years is up and the City could use the building". | The General Manager told the Committee he was very pleased with the new City Arborist, Mr. C. M. Alexander, and that the Arborist seems to be very tactful in approaching citizens and yet is protective of the trees as well. He stated that we now have the capacity to maintain trees that are planted for downtown beautification and would like to write to the Women's Chamber of Commerce regarding this. Committee was agreeable. Committee again'’discussed the building erected at Chastain Memorial Park by Municipal Theater. The General Manager was asked to determine the exact amount of indebtedness owed on the building by Municipal Theater - the original amount of the debt and how much has been paid, The Aldermen agreed that since Mr. Manos had expressed a strong wish to stay and pay off this debt, that this would probably be the right thing to do. But they voiced very strong opinions to the effect that if Municipal Theater were allowed to stay on in the building, a definite time limit should be set on when they would liquidate this indebtedness. They felt this should be one of the conditions - that perhaps a time limit of no more than five years be stipulated. Mr. Delius informed the Committee that in the meantime, the City Attorney had given the Department of Parks instructions not to allow anyone to do anything at all to the building, even to drive a nail, until this is settled. Mr. Delius mentioned an article that should be framed and put in the new Cyclorama Museum. He explained that this is an untitled piece of poetry written during the Civil War on the back of a Con- federate bill. It was suggested that it be sealed with a water proof plastic or finish by perhaps the Perma- Seal Plaque Company to preserve it. Committee agreed. The Committee went into Executive Session and the golf competition was discussed. Committee agreed to waive the greens fees for the entrants in this event. Mr. Delius told the Committee that Mr. Gene Hay had returned a check in the amount of $277.63 made payable to the City of Atlanta, which represented a refund from the grant of $800.00 made by the Citizens Park Advisory Committee for the Atlanta Golf Team participating in the National Amateur Public Links Championship, He requested permission to deposit this back into City funds. Committee had no objection to this. There being no further business, meeting was adjourned.

The intent was for the City of Atlanta to acquire the remainder of designated parcels of property and develop mini-parks or utilize the property as additions to now existing parks. The purpose of the plan was to better tie the freeway into the existing neighborhoods. The original idea ran into financial problems and could not be advanced, however, we feel the idea is sound and should be undertaken. After investigating the situation, we now find it possible for the State and Federal governments to acquire these parcels as whole takes and actually provide the landscaping of the designated areas as part of the project. The only obligation of the City of Atlanta would be the maintenance of these areas. To formalize the responsibilities in implementing this plan, a formal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the main- tenance of these areas will be required. Attached is one (1) set of prints outlining three (3) areas where joint _ development is proposed and they are as follows: 1. Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway between Virginia Avenue and Crestridge Drive. 2. Area east of freeway right-of-way and Greenland Drive bounded by Courtney Drive on south and Hillpine Drive on the north. 3. Area west of freeway right-of-way between intersection of BouEnney Drive and San Antonio Drive. : dade Coe Led JLo ldyg Ul e Page Two October 30, 1969 At present, no landscaping plans have been developed on these areas. This will be done along with the construction plans for the project and will be coordinated with your office. There may be other areas available for joint development, however, the location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans. If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will coordinate the development of these areas with your department. If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint development plan, please furnish this office with a statement of intent to maintain these areas at your earliest convenience. Revised right-of-way plans, which include the provision for these joint development areas have been submitted to the Bureau of Public Roads for approval. Your prompt reply to this request will be appreciated and will help maintain the overall schedule for completion of the project as presented at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing.

OF RECREATION DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION CITY HALL ANNEX ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 September 4, 1969 MEMORANDUM To: A. P. Brindley, Parks Engineer From: Jack C. Delius, General Manager of Parks & Recreation I am sorry to keep piling priorities on you, but this is very rush. On a confidential basis, the Mayor has been approached by a donor interested in giving the City $100,000.00. After wading through all the recommenda- tions that we have made and the i@limination of Conally Street playground since it is in Model Cities, George Berry would like for us to select three o& four playlots, determine approximately what it would cost us to buy them, and then figure up as quickly as possible some type of development, not as elaborate as the Astro-turf playgrounds in Savannah. You should check with Miss Mims as to the recommendations on the three or four playlots to be selected, being sure that none of them are in Model Cities. You should go to the Land Agent and get a rough appraisal on the value of the: lots as soon as possible.

OF RECREATION FROM: Stan Martin Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. SUBJECT: Letter Dated October 30, 1969, from State Highway Department of Georgia . Mr. Jack Delius has asked me to study the proposal from the State Highway Department and to advise you as to what action the City should take regarding the corres- pondence mentioned above. I apologize for the delay in answering your request. It was necessary to have our Parks Engineering staff and the Chairman of the Parks Committee review the proposal and make their recommendations. We are all in agreement that the City should participate in this project. Also, we approve the selection of properties to be included initially. Our department would like to have some influence in the landscaping plans and we would suggest tree planting designed for low maintenance at the present time. I have drafted a reply to Mr. Lewis Parker for your Signature which is enclosed. You are welcome to rewrite the letter if you wish to make any changes. Thank you for your continued assistance and support. STMJr:bf Fnelosures ec: ack Delius Dan Sweat

WHITLEY ' Chairman, Downtown Beautification Committee ASST. GEN. MANAGER 1 c f Atl t Sie chrpeth: Women's Chamber of Commerce o anta SETS. SEN: MANAGER 1101 Commerce Building ‘Din. OF RECREATION Atlanta, Georgia 30303 STANLEY T. MARTIN ADMIN. ASSISTANT Dear Mrs. Moore: It was certainly my pleasure meeting with you this past Friday to discuss the selection of trees to be used in the Downtown Beautification Program, along with the problems associated with this project. The success or failure of this vital project will certainly depend in great measure to the level of maintenance afforded these trees. The undersigned has felt all along that the Department of Parks had _the primary responsibility for maintaining the healthy growth and appearance of any plant material located _on public sidewalk areas in the downtown business core. However, because of an extreme limitation in budget and personnel, we have not been able to assume responsibility in the past. We have sort of limped along by requesting on an emergency basis a limited amount of overtime to pay our people, etc. Asa result, maintenance has not been systematic nor com- pletely sufficient. However, some months ago the City of Atlanta authorized me to employ the second City Parks horticulturist and the position has now been filled by Mr. Jan Bouwmans, originally from Holland. We have in the last few months been able to supply Mr. Bouwmans with a limited work crew and we have a modest budget for shrubbery and tree replacement throughout the City. Thus, it is my feeling that the City of Atlanta is now in the position to do proper maintenance and upkeep on all the downtown trees, be that whether they are planted in pots or placed in the ground. As an aside, we probably will experience continuing difficulties with some of the trees originally planted because they have become "pnotbound"”, etc. Mrs. Ann Palmer Moore February 12, 1969 Page 2 It appears that Mr. Alexander, our arborist, in cooperation with Mr. John Mixon, the Atlanta Metro Forester, have very carefully researched several types of trees that should do well in the downtown environment. In addition, Mr. Alexander has taken ‘a long hard look at the type of container we should use. If we in fact stick to the recommended variety of trees and use. the proper container, and fill it with a balanced mixture of good soil and moisture retention material, I have every reason to think we will have a successful tree program for the downtown core. In summary, the purpose of this letter is to state that the Department of Parks will assume responsibility for the maintenance and care of the trees located in the downtown area. We are particularly grateful to you for your many fine services, and I am Cordially, © Bh ck C.
