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 Commun~ty .
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 t heir 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 ur ging that all elected repre s entat ive s be invit e d to be a par t of the temporary corrnni t tee a s
well as certain other individuals whose relation to t he area you
may n ot be aware of . I would also hop e that the elected member s
of the citizen s advisory committee for the Nash- EOA ar e a hav e
a l r eady t hought of . For your i n fo r mation I am attachin g t he
en clo s ed lis t which include s such i n dividua ls as I h ave been
able to t h ink of .
Some of the s e names may have a l rea dy be en i nc l uded in
your thinking . The poin t I wish t o make i s that th e initial
mee ting where possib ilities ar e pr es ented for community consideration should include e stab l ished leadership on the basis of
e l e ction whether in governmental positions or in neighborhood
service organizations.
