Dear Hr . Davls:
The Atlant a Housing Author ity has for a long t ime been eag0r t o have the
City Parks Depart.ment supply r ecreati on l eadership to r esidents i n publ ic
housi ng pr oject s. In our confer ences with r epresentatives of t he Parks
Department, it develop s t hat they are equally eager t o supply these s ervices
t o t he citizens of Atl anta 1-1ho live in public housing.
'
From these con.ferences,it appears t hat t he only reason that such servi ces
are not supplied to t hese citizens is that· a -definition-of city- ser vices --has been made t hat prevent s City f unds f rom bei ng expended fo r t h.i.s purpose .
As you know, the At l anta Housing Author ity is prevent ed f r om supplying
f ace to f a ce l eadershi p by Federal r egulat i ons . It appears that t hese
ci 'i:;izens of Atlant a are pr evented f r om receiving full city s e rvices s imply
by virt ue of where t hey l i ve . It i s our hope t hat thi s situation can be
.
corrected a t the earliest possible date since the At lanta Housing Authority,
i n cont r ast to most other pr operty 01-mers , has outdoor and indoor space ·
which can be made available for recreation purpopes a t no or l itt le cost to
the city .
I would be grat eful if you would call t his to t he attention of t he necessary
individuals so t hat a f avorabl e ruling can be obt ained .
