Dear Hr. Moore:
A Housing Resources Committee is being established in At.lanta to
work closely with and as an adjunct to the Mayor's Office in a
special effort to provide through private enterprise, non-profit
organizations and public housing sufficient housing units for all
those in low and medium income brackets in Atlanta to be housed
iu decent, safe and sanitary housing and to eliminate existing
slums in our city.
Sub-committees of the Housing Resources Comnittee will soon be
appointed in various fields of endeavor to serve on the Committee
for accomplishing this momentous objective.
You have been nominated to serve with several others on the
Public Information Sub-Committee. It is anticipated that at its
first meeting each Sub-Committee will elect its own Chairman,
who will also be the Sub-Committee's representative on the
Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committee as a whole.
It is also expected that each Sub-Committee, in addition to
supplying "know how" in its particular field, will also be
influential at a ll level s to gain acceptance for and promotion
of the program and would s e lect at least two young men from
firms which can afford to devote part of their time for intensive
work with the Sub-Committee.
It would also be helpful if each Sub-Committee could form an
advisory panel of people active in the field of housing who would

Honorable Jack Summers ~ Chairman
Public Wo r ks Committee N tunbe r 1
Board of Aldermen
C ity of Atlanta.
C ity Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
De r Alde 1"man Swnm.e r s :
Th U. S ~ Bureau of Public Roads has re ques te d that the Mayor
and Bo rd oi Alde rmen concur in the State H ighway Department
of Georgia recommended location of Inte r s tate Route 485 (1· 485 ),
Line ' 'B" .
You re well aw re of all the rgurnents in support of and in
oppo ition to the location of this road along th route recommended
well as other routes which were thoroughly invostlg t d nd
consid red.
I am confid nt the Highw y Department concern d its lf not only
with the engineering requisites, but with all th other £ ctors
to minimi~e re idential di loc tion
d conununity di org i z tion.
The C Lty of Atl t cannot afford furth e r dcl y i n seeing thi project
started. Be ide the critical need of 1-485 for the relief 0£ northlde Atlanta traffic cong stion, th approv 1 of sev ral oth r
major highway projects for th benefit of Atl nta motorist ls
contingent upon th con truction of 1-485.
The construction of th t portion of F-0S6 from
ol I-485 n ar M rian Ro d to th junction of th
D v lopm.ent Hi hw y t the Circumfer ntial
dir ctly dep nd nt upon th
pprov 1 ol I-485.

gained on the above numbered project, this section would probably
lose Federal Participation a n d revert to the local goverrunental
bodies to complete . There would be some question as to whether
F-056 south of 1-485 would ever be constructed, particularly the
section within the Circumferential Route (I-285 ), if I - 485 is not
approved.
The improvement of the Northeast Freeway (I-85) which consists of
widening to six lanes from the interchange with I-485 near Cheshire
Bridge Road to the C i rcumferential Route (I-285) would be long
delayed if not stoppt ;- : entirely if I-485 is not approved.
The possibility 0£ F-120, the ea terly extension of Lakewood
A venue, becoming a traveling reality is dependent upon the
approval of l-485 .
I, therefore, recommend that the Board of Aldermen adopt the
attached resolution concurring in Line 11 B 11 of I,..485 and that
we urge the State Highway Department to give top priority to it
completion.
S i11cerely,
