TO: Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
FROM: Grace T. Hamilton
I am glad to know about the planned meeting for the
proposed neighborhood improvements in the Nash-Bans Community.
I expect to attend the meeting on June 6th and am anxious to
help in any way possible on the "temporary committee" looking
toward the community organization of the area.
It occurred to me that there is asplendid opportunity
in this instance to assemble initially a group of citizens who
because of their long time relation to the are either through
residence or because of economic and social interests in the
area, together with elected representatives from all levels of
government, to cooperatively consider what is in the best inte-
rest of the community and the city as a whole.
I am therefore strongly urging that all elected repre-
sentatives be invited to be a part of the temporary committee as
well as certain other individuals whose relation to the area you
may not be aware of. I would also hope that the elected members
of the citizens advisory committee for the Nash-EOA area have
already thought of. For your information I am attaching the
enclosed list which includes such individuals as I have been
able to think of.
Some of these names may have already been included in
your thinking. The point I wish to make is that the initial
meeting where possibilities are presented for community consi-
deration should include established leadership on the basis of
election whether in governmental positions or in neighborhood
