City of Atlanta
Dear Mayor Allen:
As you may be aware, the Georgia Hospital Association has entered a bid on land
parcel D-10b of the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta for purpose of
erecting a permanent headquarters building for the Association.
This land, at the southwest corner of Houston Street and Piedmont Avenue, will
provide a convenient central location for our services. As you know, we conduct
a great many educational programs for the hospitals attended by administrators
and boards of trustees of these institutions from every community in Georgia.
The need for expansion of hospital and health facilities also explains the need
for expansion of the services offered by our organization, a voluntary Associa-
tion now in its 38th year of existence.
In January the Association submitted a bid of $42,000 for the land along with a
redevelopment proposal providing for a three-story building. We later, however,
requested permission to reduce our immediate plan to a two-story building more
in keeping with our needs and resources for the remainder of this decade.
Our development plans are no less permanent. We simply desire, as does any
voluntary association, to develop a headquarters facility in stages as the mem-
bership grows and increases its investment in association services. The head-
quarters building will be enlarged in future years to meet these needs.
The Policy Committee of the Housing Authority, headed by Mr. Rodney M. Cook,
meets this Friday, May 12, to reconsider our development proposal.
Any recommendation in our behalf you might give to Mr. Cook's committee will be
With \best wishes, I am
