Committee Room #1: Henry Bowden Jimmy Little Charles Davis Ray Nixon Chief Hildebrand Dr. Jacobs Jack Delius Collier Gladin Superintendent Beerman Captain Marler Stafford Graydon Dr. Letson Charlie Henson Don Gaines Paul Weir Curtis Driskell Earl Landers �. MINUTES OF MEETING ON SANDY SPRINGS CITIZENS AND SOUTHERN BANK BUILDING 10:00 A. M., JANUARY 4, 1966 Present were: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. George Ivey, Jr. Sandy Springs Earl Landers, Administrative Assistant to M;:tyor Frank Love, Sandy Springs Rep. Jack Etheridge, Chairman, Fulton County delegation Milton F a rris, Atlanta Board of Aldermen Ferrin Y. Matthews, Office of City Attorney Hollis Cobb, Sandy Springs F. M. (Buddy) Griffin, Sandy Springs George Vandernort, Sandy Springs Curtis H. Driskell, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce r Introductory rema~ks by Mayor Allen opened the meeting. He commented on the land area, population density, urban services, special problems and other factors involved in the possible inclusion of the three areas of Sandy Springs -- A, B, and C -- as part of the city. He cited the lower density of popula tion in Areas B and C and said extending certain services to Area C would be particularly expensive to the city. Sandy Springs r epresentatives expre ssed the unanimous feeling that the entire area defined as Sandy Springs should be included in any annexation effort if it is to b e succe ssful . Inclusion of a ny less would b e short-sighted, they said, for s everal reasons : 1. About 7 5 per cent of the ar ea not now develop ed is alr eady planned fo r development, and more planning is being done all the time . 2. Population is increasing in Areas B and C at a r ate equal to, or ahead of, Area A . Some of the fine st new home s a r e being built in Areas B and C . 3. The Chattahoochee River , whic h bounds Sandy Spr ings on the west and north, would s erve a s a natural boundary and better t han an a rbitrar y line set on another basis . 4 . Psychol ogically, taking part of the area and l eaving the rest outside the city would create a "no-man ' s l and" and possibly would damage the community closeness presently felt by Sandy Springs resi dents . It was b r ought out that Sandy Springs residents would feel l e s s harmonious wit h Roswell , whe r e some Sandy Springs children would go to school if only part of the a r ea joined t he city . Di s cus s ion of taxes and s ervic e charge s fo llowed . Mr. Farris sugge sted that the applicable information on several hundred homes be run through computer machine s to arrive at the exact taxes and service charges for t hese homes if lo cated �Page 2 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs, January 4, 1966 in Sandy Springs or if located inside the city limits. He said enough representative examples should be prepared that any Sandy Springs resident could find a case closely similar to his own situation. The idea met enthusiastic approval, and Mr. Farris said he would proceed with it. Mr. Ivey brought up a num.ber of points of interest or concern to Sandy Springs residents, which he said were the main issues about which citizens had approached him. Eaph point was discussed in turn, as follows: -- Tax assessors board -- Could Sandy Springs be offered a representative on the Joint City-County Board of Tax Assessors? It was agreed that the area, iI a part of the city, would actually be better represented on the board, since the board presently has two members from the city and one from the county. Mayor Allen said he didn't think it feasible or possible to name a new member from a specific area. -- Library board:- If Sandy Springs joined the city as a new ward, would the area automatically g~t a representative on the Library Board? If a new ward, this would be automatic for one library board member , one school board member and two aldermen. Mayor Allen pointed out, though, that Sandy Springs has only about 24, 000 residents, whereas some 500, 000 people make up the present eight city wards, an average of about 62, 000 per ward. He said some ward realignment probably would be necessary . Mr. Matthews said a proposed annexation act already drawn, at the request of Rep. -ele ct Rodney Cook, defines Sandy Springs as a new ward and specifically calls for a special election to name two aldermen and one school board member for the ward, to be voted on only by the residents of the area concerned. -- Zoning and lic enses : What would be the effect of the transition to city zoning requirements, and could Sandy Springs be assured representation on the Joint Zoning Board ? ( Mayor Allen said the city would carry out a "status quo" position; that - - -1s;- it-would-not-a:ttempttoalterzoning already · ~ approved or business licenses already issued. A business license in effect would continue and would come up for renewal as usual, unless the licensee should lose the privilege for cause. Mr. Farris said naming an alderman from a specific area to the Aldermanic Zoning Committee is not done. It was agreed, though, that possibly an understanding could be reached about the appointment of a Sandy Springs resident to the Joint Zoning Board . -- Police protection and precinct stations: Would the citjr assure Sandy Springs of a precinct station? Mr. Farris said two·-way radio communications and other modern facilities are doing away with the precinct station concept instead of creating new stations . It �.. Page 3 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs, January 4, 1966 was brought out that Sandy Springs people seem to think a precinct station would increase their protection, and it was agreed that the question is one which should be answered in publicity about the proposed referendum. About six hours of the 24, there are no policemen on duty in Sandy Springs under present arrangements, the mayor was told. Mayor Allen commented on the overall need for additional police protection throughout the city. The city presently has about 1. 5 policemen for every 1, 000 population, he said, and the rest of the metropolitan area has a much lower ratio. -- Fire protection: What would happen when Sandy Springs joined the city in the way of ne w fire stations, etc. ? Mayor Allen said the Southeastern Underwriters would conduct a survey to determine the needs in Sandy Springs, and their recommendations would have to be followed for Atlanta to maintain its Class III rating. Sandy Springs presently has a Class VI rating. Preliminary investigation by the city shows the need for three new fire stations, one of which would replace the existing station, Mayor Allen said. However, the survey by the Southeastern Underwriters would be controlling . He a ssured Sandy Springs repre s entatives that the city would not r isk loss of its Class III rating. ·' -- School transportation: Sandy Springs would gain kindergartens in its public schools, but how many school children would lose their school bus transportation? Mr. Farris com m ented that it i s apparent the city and county school systems will be consolidated. But he said the Atlanta Transit System could work out a program of bus t ransportation for the students affected, t he same as the company conduct s for the City of Atlanta system . Pupils pay to ride these buses . -- Teacher benefits : Sandy Springs teachers a r e wondering where they would stand on their retirement programs, etc., if annexation occurs. Mr . Landers s aid the Pl an of Impr ovement spells out b eyond a doubt t hat benefits , including r etirem ent, follow an employee from one system to a nother . It was agreed, however , tha t this que s tion should be a ns wered for the te acher s and that Mr. A. D. Jones of the local s chool teacher s organization would be the logi cal man to handle that issue. -- School desegregation: Is any appreciabl e school desegregation likely to fo llow annexation? About 30 Negro c hildren from Sandy Springs are presently being transported to one school, and there has been no desegregation. All the children live in a rundown s e ction, and most probably would attend the Guy Webb Elementary School, if desegregation occur red. Mayor Allen said the city system has faced up to its responsibilities and that its policies, already in practice , would be continued throughout the city system. �Page 4 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs January 4, 1966 He said he hoped the matter would not be an issue, but that if it became one, it would be met forthrightly. -- Sewerage, water and garbage: Sewer service, in particular, is limited at present. Is there any way those residents without sewers, and where no .sewers are immediately planned, could be relieved of sewer charges? What would happen with water service and sanitation service? Mayor Al.len said there would definitely be no sewer charges for anyone not using sewers, and there would be none until the service is used. He and Mr. Farris explained the city's revolving fund for sewers, which is used to construct sewers and then replenished by assessments on residents who tap on to the line. Those who don't tap on don't pay a dime. residents. Water charges (minimum bill) would be cut in half for Sandy Springs This would be mostly a "plus" factor favoring the residents. Garbage pickup schedules would be improved, rubbish collections added and sanitation charge s reduced. It was agreed that the schedule of pickups should be stressed in publicity and particulars spelled out for the homeowner and the commercial user. -- Streets, sidewalks and street lights: What changes would occur in these areas, particularly sidewalks near schools? Property owners can petition for sidewalks and be assessed by front footage , the Mayor and Mr. Landers explained, but the city can move in without petition to construct sidewalks and assess property owners, if necessary for safety. The city builds sidewalks in front of schools at city expense. To meet city standards, about 1, 350 lights would be needed on arterial streets and about 2, 800 in residential neighborhoods, Mayor Allen said. Some $9, 000 annually is being spent in Sandy Springs now for street lighting; addition of those improvements would jump the cost to about $181, 000 annually after five years . -- Liquor stores: Sandy Springs presently has only three liquor store s, the maximum possible under county requirements . What would happen because of the difference in county and city requirements ? Mayor Allen said this is a point which should be met with purely business arguments. After some discussion, it was agreed this probably would not be a serious issue in the referendum. The Mayor asked Mr. Driskell to serve as temporary secretary of the group and to work with Mr. Farris in compiling memoranda on (a) all available data regarding the boundary question and (b) answers to all questions brought up at this meeting, plus others that arise. �I-· .• Page 5 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs January 4, 1966 Mayor Allen said he did not want to rush into the boundary question until further study. He said he didn 1 t know whether he could, in good conscience, commit the city to the financial burden attached to including the entire area and requested several days to consider the matter. After further brief discussion, the meeting was adjourned. Respectfully submitted, Curtis H.

BEAN r// / -ANNING ENGINEER MEMORANDUM )lf/ 1 coLLIER 8, GLADIN CHIEF PLANNER To: Ivan Allen, Jr •. From: Date: Collier B. Gladin Subject: December 9, 1965 Sandy Springs Annexation 1. Attached is a brief discussion of facilities and services, ex~sting and needed if the Sandy Springs area is-\;8:nnexed as well: as sane other pertinent infoqnation. Land Use is ·indicated on the map of North Fulton County. Area · "A" is 1965 data; "B" and "C" are 1961 data. 2. Sandy Springs is primarily residential area of low density development where many Urban services are now provided by the City of Atlanta under contract with Fulton County. The City performs these services on a non-profit basis with the exception of water revenues. 3. On a dollar and cents basis; it will cost Atlanta considerable money to annex Sandy Springs. The existing level of services will have to be improved, and if this area beco·mes a part of the City wate ,: rates will have to be reduced, resulting in a substantial loss of r~venue. As a general rule, taxes on residential properties are not adequate to offset the cost of Urban services performed for them. 4. Annexation of Sandy Springs would give Atlanta an elongated shape, roughly similar to that of Fulton County, stretching nineteen miles from the City Hall to Roswell on the north and ten miles to bt!yond Ben Hill in the Southwest. If Fulton County industrial area and the great sout~1est corporation properties are ever taken in t he City, the Southwest distance becomes fourteen miles. These d i stances and the shape will present problems in administration , access, and communication. Ideally a circular shape of eight to ten u iles would be much more economical for the traxpayer and easier to ~dminister • . An Atlanta shaped like this would have at least 200, 000 more people and eighty square miles more territory, most . of which would be already densely developed with a variety of land uses which wo uld complement .and support a desirable level of Urban ser vices ancl fa ci lities . 5.

It is possible that federal funds may be available up to 50% .for both acquisition and development. No estimate is made at this time of the need for neighborhood parks and playgrounds.

This area is designated as a sanitary district and homeowners are taxed by Fulton County for this service. Businesses are charged on a sliding scale up to $1,000 for collection. Needs If the area is annexed, some improvement would be necessary over the present level of sanitary service. A sanitary landfill andl e. bulldozer would have to be acquired and a bulldozer operator provided. There would be two additional garbage trucks needed with crews if the area north of Dalryrne Road (Area Band C) is included. To serve Area A two street sweepers and six trash trucks with crews will be ne eded. Areas Band C will require one sweeper and three trash trucks . An additional animal truck will be needed in the event of any annexa-~ t ion in the area. / ·, 12- 7- 65 ~. �Sandy Springs Area Annexation Sewer Division, Construction Department - Bob Morriss Existing Facilities Area A The basic system of trunks and treatment plants are in existence as this area is served within the Nancy Creek drainage ba sin.

M. SATURDAY The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Saturday declared its support of an ex ension of the Atlanta city limit s to include all or part of the North Fulton County area of Sandy Springs . In a r esolution setting out its position, the Board said it is apparent that the inclusion of Sandy Spr ings as par t of the city would be of mutual benefit to that community and t he City of Atlanta. The Board said such a move should be based on a favorable expression on the par t of the residents involved . It recommended that the residents of Sandy Springs be given t he oppor t unity in a refer endum during 1966 to express their preference on whe her t heir area should become part of the city. The Boa r d rs esolution was announced by Pollard Turman, outgo_ing president of t he Atlanta Chamber. The Chambe r Board urged that Sandy Spr ings citizens consider all aspects of the question, par icula r ly t he advantages to be gained by residents of the area, a nd tha t they accep he oppor tunity to join the city . "Undue delay in giving this matter borough and complete consideration would be detrimental to the best interest of bot h h e Sandy Springs area and the City of Atlanta," the Board added. Cited in t he resolution as a dvantages to Sa ndy Springs residents by joining the city were a n impr oved l evel of ur ban services , such as sewers , sanitation services , a nd fir e pr otection; a ddition of kinder gartens to the public schools; parks and r ecr eat iona l facilities , and others . · Additionally , t he Board sa id, Sandy Springs re sidents would be able to participate in t he affair s of the city , around which m a ny of their activities and int erests a r e center e d, by voting on officials and programs undertaken by the city . The actual increase in cost to residents for impr oved services and other a dvantages would be moder a te , the Boa rd said. Although the ad valorem taxes on homes would be higher , this would be partially offset by reduced service charges and lower fi r e insurance rates , once fir e p r otection facilities had been upgraded to City of Atla nta s tandards . Ba sed on t he la test a vailable information, the Boar d found that the owner of a typi cal s ingle --fami y frame residence , with a value of $20 , 000 and located on a 100- foo t lot , would pa y only a.bout $38 . 00 mor e annually . Taxes a nd service c ha r ge s would be about $64 " 00 highe r but fi r e insur ance r ates some $26 . 0 0 lower . December 31 1965 �A RESOLUTION ATLANTA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BOARD OF DIRECTORS The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has long been vitally concer ned with the orderly and intelligent growth of the City of Atlanta, recognizing full well the city 's role and responsibilities as the heart of a great and growing metropolitan area . The Board recognizes furt her that the growth and progress of the entire five-county area have been, and will be in the future, directly related to the wellbeing and continued healthy growth of the city itself. The needs of the city and of the surrounding metropolitan area -- economic, educational , cultural, recreational and others -- have been given attentive study by the Atlanta Chamber, and its utmost efforts have been devoted to insuring that those needs are met to the benefit and best possible advantage of all citizens. As with other needs and problems, the Atlanta Chamber has studied and weighed carefully the benefits inherent in the orderly extension of the city's boundaries to include as part of the city certain areas adjacent to the present boundaries, and where a substantial number of citizens already have expressed a desire for the opportunity to become part of the city . More specifically, the Atlanta Chamber has studied the feasibility of extending t he city's boundaries , provided there is a favorable expression on the part of the r esidents involved, to include some portion or all of the unincorporated area of North Fulton County known as Sandy Springs. The findings of the Board of Directors on this matter are as follows: 1. Sandy Springs is an area of some forty square miles and is primarily of r esidential development, where some 24, 000 citizens reside . A large portion of these citizens earn their livelihood at jobs within the city of Atlanta, depend on the city for many of their urban services, and avail themselves of city facilities and other advantages offered by their proximity to a metropolitan center. 2 . In spite of their contributions in other ways to the progress of the city and t heir dependence on the city for many things, the residents of Sandy Springs are unable to participate in the affairs of the city by helping to select city officials or by voting on programs undertaken by the city, around which most of their activities and interests are centered. 3. The urban services provided to the residents of Sandy Springs, rendered for the most part by t he City of Atlanta on a contract basis, are not of the same high level as similar services rendered to residents of the corporate city. Even so, some of t hese services of necessity cost more for the Sandy Springs resident than a resident of t he City of Atlanta . The City o.f Atlanta recefves no ad valorem taxes from Sandy Spr ings r esidents , or from any other residents outside present city boundaries. �- 2 - 4. Inclusion of any portion, or the entire area of Sandy Springs as part of the city would result in considerable initial expense to the city because of the necessity of improving the existing level of services to the area, particularly in the extension of sewer service to some areas and in the upgrading of fire protection and sanitation service . A substantial loss of revenue would be incurred by the city because of a subsequent reduction in water rates to these residents. The city's collections of .a d valorem taxes within the area would not be nearly adequate to offset the increased costs of providing improved urban services. 5. In addition to improved urban services, Sandy Springs residents would realize other benefits, such as the addition of kindergartens to their schools, parks and recreational facilities, and others. 6. The actual increase in cost to Sandy Springs residents for these improved services would be moderate. A higher rate of ad valorem taxes would be partly offset by reduced service charges, and further offset by a reduction in fire insurance rates, once the fire protection facilities of the area had been upgraded to the standards of the City of Atlanta. (EXAMPLE : Based on the latest information available to us today, a typical Sandy Springs single-family frame residence, with a market value of $20, 000 and located on a 100-foot lot, would cost its owner only about $38. 00 more annually, or about $3. 00 per month, if located inside the City of Atlanta. Total taxes and service charges on this home would be $64. 00 higher but fire insurance rates about $26. 00 lower.) 7. The primary benefit to the city from addition of the area would be realized not in tax dollars , but in the contributions of the Sandy Springs citizens to the growth and progress of the city by their active participation in city affairs. It is apparent to this Board that the inclusion of Sandy Springs as a part of the City of Atlanta would be of mutual benefit to the residents of Sandy Springs and the city. Although the change would be of significant cost to the city through the necessity of improved services to the area, the Board feels that this is a responsibility which the city should be willing to undertake. Therefore, the Board of Directors recommends that the residents of Sa~dy Springs be given the opportunity, in a referendum during 1966, to express their preference on whether their area should become a part of the City of Atlanta. This referendum should be duly called by legislation introduced by the Fulton County delegation to the Georgia General Assembly. The Board further strongly recommends that residents of Sandy Springs give this matter attentive thought, considering all aspects of the question, including those set out above, and that they accept the opportunity to join the City of Atlanta. This Boar d is firmly of the opinion thll.t undue delay in giving this matter thorough and complete consideration would be detrimental to the best interest of both the Sandy Springs area and the City of Atlanta .

S. Depa r tme nt of Hous ing and Ur b a n Deve l wed from the Trust Company of Georgia and require some sort of quarterly payment. We understand that these payments are being met from the proceeds of the $6,000.00 granted to the organization through EDA in 1968. The proposal conditioned the sale of the property on Model Neighborhood, Inc. being able to secure a loan for the balance which in turn necessitates securing commitments from a sufficient number of tenants to make the venture economically feasible. Mr. Vrooman states that there have been many conferences with Mr . Moody over the past year in an attempt to assist his organization in meeting this condition but, while Mr. Moody and his associates have app eare d confident and · determined, these commitments have not been obtained as yet. �July 1, 1969 Memo to Dan Sweat, Jr. Page Two The written proposal that was drawn up for this proposed sale does not have a time period written in which places any time limit on when this commitment must be met. Further, the way Mr. Vrooman interprets the document, the $10,800.00 is refundable if Model Neighborhood, Inc. does not consumate the sale. As a matte:i; of fact, there seems to be some confusion at the Housing Authority as to what the $10,800.00 is because the Authority has never deposited the check even though it was received a year ago. Mr. Vrooman states that at the last conference that was held with Mr. Moody a few weeks ago, he stated that it looked like it would be about six (6) months before the transaction could be consumated. Very truly yours, Ge0rge Berry GB:p �DEPARTME NT OFFICE OF THE A SS I STANT SECRET A R Y FOR MODEL CITIES AND GO V E R N M ENT A L REL A TIONS Ho1;.orable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 IN REPL Y R ErE R TO : JUN 1 1 1969 Dear Hayor Allen: In his press conference of April 28, 1969, _~ecr etary Romney made the following statement: ·I "The 10% population restriction on the size of the target neighborhoods will be dropped . . . . [T]his 0 ' • • . does not mean that the program will be ex pand ed city wide within each city. Its purpose will rema in tha t of focusing r esources on pa rti~ula rly pe e r a n~ blighted neighborhoods, but local officials will be given greater latitude in drawing progr am boundaries that conform to local conditions. " The Secretary's comments have been given widely differing interpretations in newspapers and periodicals around the country . In order to avoid any confusion I would like to ex pand a bit on the Secretary's remarks. Cities are certainly not required to ex pand their model ne i ghborhood boundaries. They will be permitted to do so in order to remove arbit r ary geographic limit a tions that pr event logi cal and effective program dev e lopment. For exampl e , in one city a sma ll geographic area was eliminated from the model ne i ghborhood in order to meet the popula tion limit a tion. This area i s contiguous to the model neighborhood, is a bli ghted area, with ess e ntially the same kind of population mix a s the model n eighbor hood , a nd contains onl y a few thousand residents . Ex pans ion to includ e t his contiguous area would not materially aff ect the ca pa city of t his city to mount a progr am tha t will have subs tantia l impa c t on the neighbo rhood pr oblems. This r epresents an ar tif icia l constrain t wh ich may be r emov ed, i f the c i t y seeks to init ia t e such a c ha nge , �2 Any addition to the model neighborhood must still meet all statutory requirements. The additional area must be a blighted one. The program for the expanded area must meet all the statutory criteria, including the requirement that the program achieve a substantial impact on the neighborhood's problems. No additional supplemental funds will be available for the expanded areas. For most first round cities, this means that new projects or extended projects in the new areas would depend on funds from . o_ther than Hodel Cities supplemental grant funds. All cities may find it difficult to assure the program impact required by the statute if the model neighborhood is greatly expanded unless substantial additional resources are available. In most situations, however, as CDA's develop their capabilities to plan, coordinate, and evaluate the program in their first target area, much benefit could be derived from expanding these activities of the CDA to those resources and programs presently going into poverty areas of the city other than the present model neighborhood. This expanding role of the CDA as the program continues would enable the cities to be in a position to better utilize additional resources in the futur e a s they may become ava ilable . Any request for area expansion should set forth the reas ons the refore and demonstrate that the city has the capa city to administer the program in the expa nded a reas in accordance with the for egoing considerations.

  • Text: MINUTES OF MEETING ON SANDY SPRINGS CITIZENS AND SOUTHERN BANK BUILDING 10:00 A.M., JANUARY 4, 1966 Present were: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. : George Ivey, Jr. Sandy Springs Earl Landers, Administrative Frank Love, Sandy Springs Assistant to Mayor Rep. Jack Etheridge, Chairman, Fulton County delegation Milton Farris, Atlanta Board Hollis Cobb, Sandy Springs . F. M. (Buddy) Griffin, Sandy Springs George Vandernort, Sandy Springs of Aldermen Curtis H. Driskell, Atlanta Ferrin Y. Matthews, Office of Chamber. of Commerce City Attorney Introductory remarks by Mayor Allen opened the meeting. He commented on the land area, population density, urban services, special problems and other factors involved in the possible inclusion of the three areas of Sandy Springs -- A, B, and C -- as part of the city. He cited the lower density of population in Areas B and C and said extending certain services to Area C would be particularly expensive to the city. Sandy Springs representatives expressed the unanimous feeling that the entire area defined as Sandy Springs should be included in any annexation effort if it is to be successful. Inclusion of any less would be short-sighted, they said, for several reasons: 1. About 75 per cent of the area not now developed is already planned for development, and more planning is being done all the time. 2. Population is increasing in Areas B and C ata rate equal to, or ahead of, Area A. Some of the finest new homes are being built in Areas B and C. 3. The Chattahoochee River, which bounds Sandy Springs on the west and north, would serve as a natural boundary and better than an arbitrary line set on another basis. 4. Psychologically, taking part of the area and leaving the rest outside the city would create a "no-man's land" and possibly would damage the community closeness presently felt by Sandy Springs residents. It was brought out that Sandy Springs residents would feel less harmonious with Roswell, where some Sandy Springs children would go to school if only part of the area joined the city. Discussion of taxes and service charges followed. Mr. Farris suggested that the applicable information on several hundred homes be run through computer machines to arrive at the exact taxes and service charges for these homes if located Page 2 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs, January 4, 1966 in Sandy Springs or if located inside the city limits. He said enough representative examples should be prepared that any Sandy Springs resident could find a case closely similar to his own situation. The idea met enthusiastic approval, and Mr. Farris said he would proceed with it. * Mr. Ivey brought up a number of points of interest or concern to Sandy Springs residents, which he said were the main issues about which citizens nad approached him, Each point was discussed in turn, as follows: -- Tax assessors board -- Could Sandy Springs be offered a representative on the Joint City-County Board of Tax Assessors? It was agreed that the area, it a part of the city, would actually be better represented on the board, since the board presently has two members from the city and one from the county. Mayor Allen said he didn't think it feasible or possible to name a new member from a specific area. -- Library board; If Sandy Springs joined the city as a new ward, would the area automatically geta representative on the Library Board? If a new ward, this would be automatic for one library board member, one school board member and two aldermen. Mayor Allen pointed out, though, that Sandy Springs has only about 24, 000 residents, whereas some 500, 000 people make up the present eight city wards, an average of about 62,000 per ward. He said some ward realignment probably would be necessary. Mr. Matthews said a proposed annexation act already drawn, at the request of Rep.-elect Rodney Cook, defines Sandy Springs as a new ward and specifically calls for a special election to name two aldermen and one school board member for the ward, to be voted on only by the residents of the area concerned. -- Zoning and licenses: What would be the effect of the transition to city zoning requirements, and could Sandy Springs be assured representation on the Joint Zoning Board ? se Mayor Allen said the city would carry out a Een gun" position; Phat . is, it-would- not-attempt to alfer-zoning already appyewed=o imoss=licenses=rireak approved or business licenses already issued. A business idenas in effect would continue and would come up for renewal as usual, unless the licensee should lose the privilege for cause. Mr. Farris said naming an alderman from a specific area to the Aldermanic Zoning Committee is not done. It was agreed, though, that possibly an understanding could be reached about the appointment of a Sandy Springs resident to the Joint Zoning Board. -- Police protection and precinct stations: Would the city assure Sandy Springs of a precinct station? Mr. Farris said two-way radio communications and other modern facilities are doing away with the precinct station concept instead of creating new stations. It Page 3 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs, January 4, 1966 was brought out that Sandy Springs people seem to think a precinct station would increase their protection, and it was agreed that the question is one which should be answered in publicity about the proposed referendum. About six hours of the 24, there are no policemen on duty in Sandy Springs under present arrangements, the mayor was told. Mayor Allen commented on the overall need for additional police protection throughout the city. The city presently has about 1.5 policemen for every 1,000 population, he said, and the rest of the metropolitan area has a much lower ratio. -- Fire protection: What would happen when Sandy Springs joined the city in the way of new fire stations, etc. ? Mayor Allen said the Southeastern Underwriters would conduct a survey to determine the needs in Sandy Springs, and their recommendations would have to be followed for Atlanta to maintain its Class Il rating. Sandy Springs presently has a Class Vi rating. Preliminary investigation by the city shows the need for three new fire stations, one of which would replace the existing station, Mayor Allen said. However, the survey by the Southeastern Underwriters would be controlling. He assured Sandy Springs representatives that the city would not risk loss of its Class Ill rating. ? -- School transportation: Sandy Springs would gain kindergartens in its public schools, but how many school children would lose their school bus trans- portation? Mr. Farris commented that it is apparent the city and county school systems will be consolidated. But he said the Atlanta Transit System could work out a program of bus transportation for the students affected, the same as the company conducts for the City of Atlanta system. Pupils pay to ride these buses. -- Teacher benefits: Sandy Springs teachers are wondering where they would stand on their retirement programs, etc., if annexation occurs. Mr. Landers said the Plan of Improvement spells out beyond a doubt that benefits, including retirement, follow an employee from one system to another. It was agreed, however, that this question should be answered for the teachers and that Mr. A. D. Jones of the local school teachers organization would be the logical man to handle that issue. -- School desegregation: Is any appreciable school desegregation likely to follow annexation? About 30 Negro children from Sandy Springs are presently being transported to one school, and there has been no desegregation. All the children live in a rundown section, and most probably would attend the Guy Webb Elementary School, if desegregation occurred. Mayor Allen said the city system has faced up to its responsibilities and that its policies, already in practice, would be continued throughout the city system. Page 4 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs January 4, 1966 He said he hoped the matter would not be an issue, but that if it became one, it would be met forthrightly. -- Sewerage, water and garbage: Sewer service, in particular, is limited at present, Is there any way those residents without sewers, and where no sewers are immediately planned, could be relieved of sewer charges? What would happen with water service and sanitation service ? Mayor Allen said there would definitely be no sewer charges for anyone not using sewers, and there would be none until the service is used. He and Mr. Farris explained the city's revolving fund for sewers, which is used to construct sewers and then replenished by assessments on residents who tap on to the line. Those who don't tap on don't pay a dime. Water charges (minimum bill) would be cut in half for Sandy Springs residents. This would be mosily a "plus" factor favoring the residents. Garbage pickup schedules would be improved, rubbish collections added and sanitation charges reduced. It was agreed that the schedule of pickups should be stressed in publicity and particulars spelled out for the homeowner and the commercial user. ~- Streets, sidewalks and street lights: What changes would occur in these areas, particularly sidewalks near schools? Property owners can petition for sidewalks and be assessed by front footage, the Mayor and Mr. Landers explained, but the city can move in without petition to construct sidewalks and assess property owners, if necessary for safety. The city builds sidewalks in front of schools at city expense. To meet city standards, about 1, 350 lights would be needed on arterial streets and about 2, 800 in residential neighborhoods, Mayor Allen said. Some $9, 000 annually is being spent in Sandy Springs now for street lighting; addition of those improvements would jump the cost to about $181, 000 annually after five years. -- Liquor stores: Sandy Springs presently has only three liquor stores, the maximum possible under county requirements, What would happen because of the difference in county and city requirements ? Mayor Allen said this is a point which should be met with purely business arguments, After some discussion, it was agreed this probably would not be a serious issue in the referendum. The Mayor asked Mr. Driskell to serve as temporary secretary of the group and to work with Mr. Farris in compiling memoranda on (a) all available data regarding the boundary question and (b) answers to all questions brought up at this meeting, plus others that arise. wt So gg ee Page 5 Minutes of Meeting on Sandy Springs January 4, 1966 Mayor Allen said he did not want to rush into the boundary question until further study. He said he didn't know whether he could, in good conscience, commit the city to the financial burden attached to including the entire area and requested several days to consider the matter. After further brief discussion, the meeting was adjourned. Respecifully submitted, Curtis H. Driskell Acting Secretary

Both the City School | System and the County School System have some shortage of high school facilities on the north side. Needs - If Sandy Springs is annexed, the annexation should extend far enough north to include the North Springs High School and the Morgan Falls Hisihentady School. To do this, a suitable boundary would be the power line running east and west along the north side of Land Lots 21, 31, 75 and 85. The Atlanta School Department favors the annexation of Sandy Springs. te 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Parks Department - A. P. Brindley Existing Facilities - Needs - None. One community park between twelve (12) and thirty (30) acres. Estimated cost nf land, $250,000 (25 acres at $10,000 an acre). Development of this park would cost from $200,000 to $300,000. It is possible that federal funds may be available up to 50% for both acquisition and development. No estimate is made at this time of the need for neighborhood parks and playgrounds. If the Community park is acquired and developed some additional personnel will be necessary to carry on the recreation program. 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Sanitary Service - Mr. Roy Wood - Sanitary Department Existing Service - Garbage sollestion is presently performed by the City under contract with the County for residence in the area north to Abernathy Road. This area is designated as a sanitary district and homeowners are taxed by Fulton County for this service. Businesses are charged on a sliding scale up to $1,000 for collection. Needs - If the area is annexed, some improvement would be necessary over the present level of sanitary service. A sanitary landfill andia bulldozer would have to be acquired and a balidoser operator provided. There would be two additional garbage trucks needed with crews if the area north of Dalryrne Road (Area B and C) is included. To serve Area A two street sweepers and six trash trucks with crews will be needed. Areas B and C will require one sweeper and three trash trucks. An additional animal truck will be needed in the event of any annexa~ tion in the area. f 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Sewer Division, Construction Department - Bob Morriss Existing Facilities - Area A - The basic system of trunks and treatment plants are in existence as this area is served within the Nancy Creek drainage basin. Area B - Area Developed areas are served by the Marsh Creek treatment plant and trunk. Undeveloped areas presently do not have sewers or treatment available. C- Consists of many small drainage basins of 500 acres or less. Served only by septic tanks. Needed Facilities <- Area Area A- The problem here is the development of laterals and outfalls, however, very little difficulty or excessive expense is antici- pated in the long run. Be For the developed areas, the need for outfalls and laterals exists to some extent but does not present a major difficulty. No treatment facilities are available at present for undeveloped areas, however, it is anticipated that when necessary sewage Shirt hs 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Sewer Division, Continued could be pumped to a Fulton County plant on the north side of the Chattahoochee River. Area C - The treatment of sewage in this area presents nothing but problems due to the rough topography.- The only probable solution is a low density of development with septic tanks. General Comment - The annexation of Areas A and B would facilitate a comprehensive approach by the City to the sewer problems of the area and the surrounding metropolitan area also. - 12-7-65 ty» at ( Sandy Springs Area Annexation Police Department - Chief Jenkins Existing Facilities - The Atlanta Police Department under contract with Fulton County now serves the entire area in question enforcing State laws, Needs - In the event of annexation, City Ordinances would come into effect, which might require additional personnel. If the shebtace system were to be established, this area would need a precinct station, otherwise, existing facilities would suffice. Distance from City Hall and Police Station to center of Sandy Springs is approximately 13 miles; to the Chattahoochee, 19 miles. 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Fire Department ~ Chief Hildebrand Existing Facilities - One station--substandard--which is not well located. Two existing engines which need replacement. Service now provided by City under contract. Needs (Approximate) - 3 new stations--one of which would be a replacement for existing one. 1 new engine and ladder truck. Replace two existing engines. Hire 28 additional men, 3 supervisors and 1 batallion chief. General - In the final analysis, a survey would have to be made by the South- eastern Fire Underwriters. We would have to follow their recommen- dations to maintain our Class III rating; therefore, the above is subject to revision. The Underwriters would not undertake this study until annexation became a reality. 12-27-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Building Inspectors Department - Mr. Moon > Existing Service - Fulton County presently administers construction codes in the area and issues building permits. i Needs - Upon annexation by the City, the Building Inspectors Department estimates and two and perhaps three new building inspectors would be necessary because of the large area (approximately 40 square miles) and distance from the City Hall. An additional plumbing’ and electrical inspector would also be required. 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Library - Mrs. Soul.....Extension Service Existing Facilities - The City of Atlanta operates a branch library for Fulton County in Sandy Springs. There are also two bookmobiles that serve the area. Service now provided by City under contract. Needs - The area is adequately served and there would be no immediate need to increase the level of service. « 12-7-65 Sandy Springs Area Annexation Street Lights - George Timbert - Traffic Engineers Department Existing Facilities - Needed Fulton County presently provides ninety high level illumination street lights on portions of the twenty-seven miles of arterial strects. One hundred and twelve lights are provided on residential streets. All are of the meecacy vapor type. Cost to the county is approximately $9,000 annually. There are eight traffic signals now in operation. To bring the area up to the desirable standard which is being strived for, but not yet reached in the present City, would cost approximately $181,000 annually at the end of five years. On this basis, approximately 1350 street light units suitable for arterials or 2800 units suitable for residential streets would be installed. Street signs and marking would cost approxinetely $12,000 annually. The need for additional traffic signals has not been determined. / Sandy Springs Area Annexation Hospitals - Mr. Taylor.....Community Council of Atlanta Area, Inc. Existing Facilities - None. Needs - A hospital is needed to serve this area and North DeKalb, Western Gwinnett and all of north Fulton County as well. The hospital should have a minimum of 150 beds and 200 is the recommended figure. Northside Hospital Association has acquired a very convenient site — at the intersection of I[-285 and Peachtree-Dunwoody Road, however, money appears to be a problem. The development of the old V. A. Hospital site on Peachtree Road for a hospital is a possibility and such a facility could serve Sandy Springs fairly well. by 12-7-65
