Dear Mayor Allen:
As you may be aware, the Georgia Ho spital Association has enter ed a bid on land
parcel D-lOb 0£ the Housing Authority 0£ the City 0£ Atlant a f or purpos e of
erecting a permanent headquarters building f o r the Association.
This land, at the s outhwest corner 0£ Houston Street and Piedmont Av_enue, will
provide a convenient central l oca tion £or our services. As you know, we conduct
a great many e ducational progr ams £or the h ospitals atten ded by administrators
and boards 0£ tr ustees 0£ thes e 1nstitutions from every community in Georgia.
The need for expansion o f hospital and health facilities also e.><;plains the need
for expansion of the services offered by our organization, a voluntary Association 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 £or 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 as·s ociation, to develop a . headquarters facility in stages as the membership grows and increases its investment in association services. The headquarters building will be enlarged in future years to meet these needs.
The Policy Committee 0£ the Hou s ing Autho r i ty , head ed by Mr . Rodney M. Cook,
meets this Friday, May 12, to reconsider our development proposal.
Any recommen dation in our behalf you might give to Mr. Cook's committee will be
most appreciated.
