Mayor of Atlanta

Mr. William Maynard

AATS Policy Committee
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Mayor Allen and Mr. Maynard:

Thank you for your letter supporting and endorsing the Center
City Transportation Program. We believe that this program
offers the promise of initiating action and that it can imple-
ment solutions to the problems of transportation in the heart
of urban areas. We also believe that the Federal Government
can help most effectively by working in partnership with the
cities and industry, and your letter would indicate that such
a partnership is possible in Atlanta.

As you know, the Phase I work of the Arthur D. Little team has
been completed. We are now reviewing their recommendations and
plans for Phase II and hope to make a final decision on the
next step in the project very soon.

I appreciate Atlanta's enthusiastic and energetic support for

the program. During the briefings on the Phase I effort,

Collier Gladen and Robert Bivens were most effective in proposing
various means for integrating the Center City Transportation
Program and Atlanta's ongoing transportation development programs.

You may be assured that I shall give every consideration to a
role for Atlanta in this program as it continues.
