At the public hearing which t he Commiss ion held in the SummerhillPeoplest own and the ~echanicsville-Pittsburg areas, we were asked to
help plan one meeting for the whole model neighborhood area where
all the various questions about housing might be brought up and
discussed and answered as they relate to each other.
For example, i f there is to be no lessening o f code enforcement
during the year' s planning period, where will people b e relocated?
Are there relocation re s ou rces within the area? Will the sched uling of improvements in streets, etc., be delayed until the year 1 s
planning is done, or will that continue without regard to th e model
planning? Etc., Etc.

February 16, 1967
Atlanta, Georgia
The first public hearing of the Community Relations Commission of the City
of Atlanta was held February 16, 1967 , at 7:30 p.m. in the Aldermanic Chambers
of the City Hall.
Mr. Irving Kaler, Chairman of the Commission, presided. Other Commission
members p:r'esent were: Mr. T. M. Alexander, Mrs .Sara Baker, Miss Helen Bullard,
Mr. Robert Dobbs, Mr. A. L. Feldman , the Rev. J. L. Griggs, Mr. Joseph Haas,
Mr. Al Kuettner, Mrs. F. W. Patterson, Rabbi Jacob M. Rothschild, Mr. M. O. Ryan,
Mrs. Mary Stephens, the Rev. Samuel Williams.
Mr. Kaler recognized Aldermen George Cotsakis, J.M. Flanigen, Charles Leftwich,
G. Everett Millican, Hugh Pierce, Jack Summers, Q. V. Williamson, and Senator
Leroy Johnson and Representative John Hood. Mr. Kaler thanked them for their
interest and support.
Mr. Bennie T. Smith, of the Grass Roots Council , and Senator Dan McIntyre sent
letters expressing their regret at being unable to attend the hearing and
assuring the Commission of their interest and support.
Mr . Kaler stated this hearing was the first of a series of hearings planned to
afford the citizens of Atlanta a place to seek help with their problems and to
voice their complaints or grievances.
The chairman then introduced Mrs. Eliza Paschall, who has been appointed by the
Commission to serve as its Executive Director. Mrs. Paschall read the list
of persons who had expressed a desire to be heard and asked that all speakers
leave their names and telephone numbers for future conferences. Mrs. Paschall
stated that her office would begin the following day on checking into all
complaints and that all matters brought before the Commission would be thoroughly
The meeting was then turned over to the Reverend Samuel Williams, who conducted
the hearing. Mr. Williams stated that a series of neighborhood hearings would
be held and that meetings would be held with all City department heads to
discuss problems or complaints presented at these hearings.
Mr. Williams expressed his gratification at the interest shown by the large
number of persons, approximately 250, attending the hearing. All persons
wishing to address the Commission were asked to limit their remarks to three
minutes in order that all might be heard.
�MRS. HENRY TOOMBS, 2871 Normandy Drive, N. W.
Mrs. Toombs expressed the feeling that Fulton County and the City of Atlanta
are neglecting an opportunity to meet the needs of many of our people by
failing to part i ci pate in the Food Stamp program of the U. S. Department of
Agriculture. Mrs. Toombs explained the operation of the program, in which
68 Georgia counties are participating , and reiterated her belief that the
City and County should i mplement all programs designed to meet the needs
of segments of our community.
MR. WILLIAMS. JACKSON, Dean of School of Social Work, Atlanta University
Dean Jackson expressed his pleasure in the formation of the Commission and
his hope that the Commission could be helpful in seeing that all services
of the community are made available to all people. Dean Jackson feels that
despite progress in the availability of public services resulting from
civil rights legislation, the services of many private agencies are still not
available to all citizens. As a case in point, he read a letter from a
woman who has experienced difficulty in finding nursing care for her aged
mother. She stated Hillhaven had taken her application, promising to notify
her when a vacancy occurred, but she has heard nothing further. Upon
making application to Highview, she was told that Highview had never admitted
a Negro applicant , but might have to accept Negroes at a later date to comply
with Federal laws .
MR . ARTHUR BARHAM, West End, (Bush Mountain) Student at Clark College
Mr . Barham stated he was concerned over an incident in which several
Negro youths were threatened by white youths with a pistol. Mr . Bar ham
s aid a case was made against the white youths , but the case ha s been pendi ng
i n court si nce J anuary 25. Al t hough Mr . Ba rham conceded there wer e legal
reasons for the t wo postponement s of the case , never theless he felt i t
i mposed a ha rdshi p on students t o have to get out of school so many times .
Mr. Barham also cont ended t hat t he police and other per sons in the city
seemed more anxious to obtain informat ion regarding gangs in the neighbor hood
t han t o concl ude t his spec i f i c case . Asked i f he would coopera te with the
Commiss ion in an i nvest i gat i on of potent ial gang warfare , Mr . Bar ham said
he would cooperate, but r ep eated hi s asser tions that he actual ly knows very
little of any gang act ivity .
THE REVEREND AMOS HOLMES, 1035 Simp son Street, N. W.,Vice President of the Atlanta
Chapter of NAACP, Chairman, Housing Committee of NAACP
Mr. Holmes stated the City should concern itself with an up to date citywide
zoning plan. The City is still using the 1956 zoning format, which is now
inadequate for the growth of the City. Mr. Holmes feels zoning policies
should be geared to meet the needs of the City and its citizens and should
be free from citizen pressure or commercial domination. If the city is
to eliminate ghettos and provide housing for all its citizens, planning must
be done on a citywide rather than a sectional basis.

�MR. ROBERT W. HAVER, 430 Lynhurst Drive, S. W., Southwest Atlanta for Progress
Association, Cascade Heights Area
Mr. Haver described the work of his organization, which is concerned with
preserving their community on a balanced integrated basis. The special
concern of this group is that white people do not move out as Negroes
move in, thus creating a racial imbalance in the schools and community as
a whole. Mr. Haver stated that while the use of percentages in governing
human relations is undesirable, the community nevertheless feels it is
important for the present to try to maintain a 50-50 balance of white and
Negro families to give their children an opportunity to grow up in a truly
integrated situation. A series of community forums will be held at Holy
Family Hospital, beginning March 9, to discuss ways of stabilizing the
community. Mr. Haver asked for the moral support and encouragement of
the Commission in their efforts. Mr. Williams expressed the pleasure of
the Commission in learning of the work of this group and pledged the full
assistance and support of the Commission.
HR. CHARLES CLARK, Southwest Atlanta
Mr. Clark stated a Negro real estate dealer had tried to procure housing
for him in a white neighborhood and alleged many prospective sellers had
stated they were afraid of the reaction of their neighbors if they sold to
a Negro family.
Mr. Kuettner said he would be interested in receiving reports on any real
estate agent who will not handle sales because of the race of the client.
Mr. Clark was asked to appear before the Commission at a later date to give
his story in full detail.
MR. JAMES ~1ARSHALL, JR., 392 Rock Street, S. W. Block 13 near Incinerator
Mr . Marshall stated there are no recreation areas in this section; the
houses are unfit f or human habitation; there is only one paved street in
the area; garbage and litter from demolished houses is not picked up.
Mr. Dobbs asked if there was any plan for including this area in an Urban
Renewal project. Mr . Marshall said he knows nothing of such plans. He
also stated that the Sanitary Department is very slow in responding to calls
to pick up trash.
Rabbi Rothschild stated this area is high on the priority list of communities
whose problems will receive special attention.
MRS. ALVENIA DAVIS, 449 Markham Street, S. W., speaking for residents ·of
Markham area
Mrs. Davis stated that several houses unfit for habitation have not been
demolished, although some have been unoccupied for more than one year.
She feels these houses are dangerous and are a breeding place for crime and
Page 3
Mrs. Davis also alleged that the housing code is not impartially enfor ced,
contending that persons who own many houses receive more lenient treatment.
that the owner of only one or two houses. Asked who owned the substandard
houses still being occupied, Mrs. Davis stated Joe Schaffer was the owner.
MRS. HAMBRICK , Walker Street School Council
Mrs. Hambrick stated the residents of this area protest the continued use
of the Walker Street School buil ding, which is old and in substandard
condition. The residents want the school building replaced and feel the
transfer of children to this school should be discontinued. Mr. Kuettner
asked if the problem had been discussed with the Board of Education.
Mrs . Hambrick said members of t he community had met with Dr. Letson and .had
been told tha t work has been done on the building recently and that plans
for replaci ng this school were not included in the r ecent school bond issue.
MR. GLENN GLEATON , _1035 Garibaldi Street, S. W.
Mr. Gleaton asked what the responsibility of the City is in regard to the
individual homeowner whose property is bei ng damaged by leaking sewers or
overflowing drains. Mr . Dobbs stated that new homes were inspected by t he
Ci ty and the Building Ins pector should not clear houses which had inadequate
sewer or drainage systems. Mr. Gleaton replied that he had complai ned t o
the City of the damage to the foundat i on of his house and had been told t he
house was too close to the ground. No further help on the matter was off er ed
by the Ci ty.
MRS. SALLIE BILLI NGSLEY, Pittsburgh Civi c League
Mrs. Billingsl ey comp l ained of poor police pr otection in this area. Many
r obberies have occurred, but the police have not appeared very interested
in the matter. There are ver y few str eet lights. Teenagers are hanging out
in vacant houses. Mr. Williams sta t ed tha t Alderman Charles Leftwich ha s
discussed the problems of this community with the Police Department and
every ef fort wi l l be made to provi de better pat r ol s ervice, especia lly at
night .
MR. HERNANDEZ, Southeast Atlanta , close to Blair Village (Gilbert Heights Ar ea )
Mr . Henandez asked what can be done about unscr upulous real esta te dealers
who attempt to buy houses thr ough scare tac t ics, s uch a s t el ling homeowners
that the section will be t urned over to Negroes or tha t it is going to be
torn down for an Urban Renewal proj ect . Mr . Hernandez stated t here is no
racial trouble in the area , but real est ate deal ers a re constantly sta rting
rumors that the property will be condemned by the City to build apartments.
In answer to an inquiry as to the real estate companies involved, Mr.
Hernandez stated tha t Bickers, State Realty, and Collins Realtors were among
t hose engaging in thi s practice.
Page 4
�MR. HERNANDEZ (Continued)
Asked if he had called any of the Urban Renewal agencies, Mr. Hernandez
replied that he had not talked to anyone in those agencies, but he could
not wait for this. He feels the City should investigate immediately, as
many of the people in the community may be panicked into selling their homes.
Mr. Hernandez was asked to meet with the Commission at a later date to
provide specific names and additional facts.
MR. OTIS COCHRAN, 230 Walnut Street, N. W., Vice-Chairman, Advisory Board,
Nash-Washington EOA, Member of the Board of Directors of
the Atlanta Council on Human Relations. (Vine City)
Mr. Cochran stated the City should investigate cases of discrimination
in employment practiced by many of the firms and contractors with whom
the City is doing business. He stated that a group of consultants engaged
by the City to make a study of equal employment opportunities actually
practices complete discrimination against Negroes in their own hiring
Mr. Cochran also addressed the Commission on the problem of recreational
facilities in the Vine City area. Mr. Cochran stated that a full time,
long-range program should be established rather than relying on emergency
measures to solve crises.
MR. JOE LEWIS HEADSPETH, 575 Magnolia Street , N. W. (Vine City)
Mr. Headspeth, with two other teenage residents of this area, appeared
with Mr. Cochran to protest the closing of their recreation center at
141 Walnut Street. Mr. Dobbs stated that because of a reduction in EOA
funds, the center had to be closed becaused funds for recreation technicians
were cut off . Mr. Headspeth turned over to the Commission a petition from
residents of the area requesting that the center be reopened.
Alderman Millican stated that there has been a 30% cut in Federal funds
available for EOA , but the City is working to provide the same service
to this area as was available last year.
Mr. Headspeth stated that he and his friends felt very strongly about this
matter and that if it were necessary demonstrate in the streets to spotlight
their problem, they would do so.
MRS. LOUISE WHATLEY, Pryor Road (Carver Homes)
Mrs. Whatley protested the lack of recreational facilities in this housing
project in which approximately 4,000 children have no place to play.
Open space which could be used for football and baseball fields is available,
but the Housing Authority will not permit them to use it.
Page 5
Mrs. Whatley also protested the managment's practice of doubling and
tripling charges for repairs according to the number of repairs requested
in one year. She stated repairs were often made without the occupant ' s
knowledge or request. Tenants have been charged as much as $36 for
repairing a screen door and have been charged $5 because their children
played on the grass. Mrs. Whatley said a receipt was given for the charge,
which is paid at the same time as the rent , but the receipt does not
specify what the charge covered and the tenants do not know where the money
goes. She said complaints had been made to Mr. Howard Ball at the Housing
Authority, but his attitude was that the complainants represented only a
minority of the tenants.
In reply to a question about a tenant's organization, Mrs. Whatley said they
did have a Tenant's Association, but it is more or less run by the management.
Mrs. Whatley also complained that the tenants are treated with discourtesy
or disdain by the management.
MRS. CHARITY MURRAY, 76 Hilliard Street, Apt. 612, Grady Homes Apartments
Mrs. Murray stated that a woman living in an apartment across the hall
from her had fired a pistol, narrowly missing her grandaughter. A case
was made against the woman and she was bound over to Fulton County Court ,
but both the defendant and Mrs. Murray had been told to vacate their
apartments by letter from Mr. Carl Brown, manager of Grady Homes. Mrs.
Murray stated she went to Legal Aid Society, but they could not help her,
Mrs. Baker asked if any charge had been made against Mrs. Murray. She
said no charge was made against her. Mr. Williams stated that an investigation
would be made.
MR. DON CROWLEY, Edgewood Area , East Atlanta
Mr. Cr owley stated that large numbers of people have migrated into this
area and there is an acut e need of recreational facilities. The citizens
of this area want supervised recrea tional facilities f or their children.
MR. LORENZO JOHNSON, 1583 First Street, President of the Wesley Homes Tenants
Mr. Johnson stated the apartments are unsanitary, unfit for human habitation,

investment protected. He stated that signs saying the property was zoned
for business extend on Memorial Drive from the Expressway ramp to East Lake

Thank you for your letter o f Febr uary 22, 1967 re ga rding a

Unfortunately I ha ve not had the pleasure of meeting the complainant; nor do I recall any inci dent referred too in her co mplaint .
For your informa tion Hi ghview does not operate under Hill-Bu rto n
funds . Original cons tructi on, however, was fina nced partly with funds
secured under the Hill-Burton Ac t.
Highview has no rules regarding admissi on of patients wh ich ex clude admission of negroes .
Highview has fulfilled all requireme nts of the Department of Health,
Education and We lfare, as set forth under Title VI and has so advertised
in the community news media, by le tter to the county governments of Fu l ton and DeKalb, and ora l ly to all others interested .
Neither the undersi gned nor any member of the Highview s taff has
ever, with my knowledge, mad e any s ta teme nts to anyone whi ch would be
contrary to the Highview board's expre ssed admission policies.
Highview does not have on ha nd any requests for admission o f a ne gr o

Some Facts About Admission To
--·-------- --·---------
Highview Nursing Home
2800 Springdale Raed S. W.
At lanta, Georgia 30315
· Highview Nursing Home is a privately operated, non profit philanthropy,
governed by a self-perpetuating board of directors. (It is not under the
direction of county officers ) . Service is limited to bona-fide re s idents
of Fulton County and, to a le sser degree , DeKa lb County. Application
for admission is made direc t ly to the administrator's office at the home.
It is not necessary to have the endorsement of recommendation of friends
or public officials. Acceptance of a patient is determined entirely on
the basis of eligibility, need and ava ilability of space.
Application is made on forms provided by Highview, one of which is a
me<lical report and diagnosis to be made by the applicant's physicia n.
Medical examination and judgement is required in order to determihe
whether Highview can pr operly serve the patient.
Because this community doe s not ha~e adequate nursing home facilities,
there is a considerable waiting list for a dmission to Highview, and
acceptance is usually slow. Critical circums tances surrounding a patient
are considered. Often it i s best a patient be placed in any nursi ng ho~e
where space is availab le, pending a vacancy a t Highview; and thi~ wil l
not lose the patient' s priority for Highview admiss ion.
Ot h er f actors a ffec ti ng admis s ion: Some patie nts floors are restri c ted
to WQme p , § Orne tQ men; and a va ca ncy on t he men ' s wa r g wi l l not prov i de
a bed for a woman on the waiting li st . Some spa ce i ~ appropriate onl y
for the care of amaulatory patients. About two-thirds of th e space at
Highview is devo~s to patients whose financia l circumstances require as si s tanc e from public welfare sources ; and t his rati o is mai ntained in
considering all applications. Also the r atio between DeKalb and Fulton
r e sident s is maintained .
The officers of Highview are concerned that the service s of t he Home be
made available to the community in equitable fashi on . Our sole object is
to serve those who need this ca re. However , our maximum capacity is only
.a fraction of the total need, a nd it is impossib le to admit many who wish
to enter here. Our most unhapp y task is to de ny those for whom we ca nnot find space.

2800 Springdale Road S . W.
Atlanta) Qeor gia 30315
Highview is intended to be a nursing ~
of limit ed means .
f or infirm aged men and women
Infirm is intended to mean that the person should have immediately avail ab le nursing care and medical attention of the degree u sually assoc iated
with a nursing home, but not t o the degree which normally requires the
s ervite of a genera l hospital or a chr onic-disease hospital; and a degree
of infirmity which requires more than simp le custodial c are .
Aged is inte nded to mean a person who is in the sixtieth year of life or
older . This age shall not be consid ered a rule abso lute if the capacity of
the h ome is not filled by persons of this minimum age .
Limited Means is intended to mean persons who do not have avai lable (owned
in their ~ r i g h t, or through kin who will a ccept fina ncia l respons ibility)
financial resources suffic ient to pay f or the ir care in the usua l privately
operated nursing h ome or home for the aged . A specific dollar-value on
r esource s is intenti onally omitted .
Patients• shal l be considered under three classifications- Class A she.11 be those patients who are entirely dependent upon public or
private agencies or charities for t heir care and live lihood.
Class B shall be those patients wh o have some fi nancial resources (se lf
kin) , but who require assistance from public or private agencies
for their care a nd livelihood.


Class C shall be those patients who have financial resour ces (self owned
or fro; kin) sufficient to pay cost of care and livelihood at this home,
but not sufficient to purchase care and livelihood at the usual private ly
operated nursing home.
Priority : First consideration will be given to Clas s~ patients. It is in
the publ:i.c interes t that services also be extended to the other two group s,
for it is wise to encourage persons to rely on their own resources. Under
this premise, next priority will be given to Class Ji patients. Bu t it is
not in tended to exclude all Class f patients in the exercise of the above
two preference s.
Exc lusions: This home is not prepared to care for persons with acute
psychiatric complaints, or with infectious or contagious diseases, or with
tuberculosis. Such patients will not be knowingly admi tted; and if the
condition develops or becomes known after admiss ion, it is expected that
~ ,10 ._1..,J
0::1 . !).,
the patient will be promptly removed .
The Medical Director (or the
Administrat or, if the Medical Director cannot . readily act) shall have
full power to judge and t oe.c t upon such matters .
MEDICAL REPORT: Prior to admission, a wr itten medical report and

E:~ all :
This will answer the fi rst part of your letter of February 22nd
rega _ding the condition of the sewer reported by Mrs . Nannie McCormick
of 1 l:-3 Oakmont Drive, N. W.
1-it's . 1cCormick is a schoo 1 teacher and v."e have had some trouble
COi.1tacting he ; however, our Mr . Ken Lanca s ter has contacted Mrs .
~1cCo_o·· ck concerning the sewer odor and inefficie ncy of sewers in the
mldo D~ ive and Argyle Drive area of Lincoln Homes . We believe the
silt d posits that have accumulated in these lines i s the trouble
and we have instructed our construction super intendent to flush and
drag t.ese lines . After the completion of this work, i f the sewers
are stil operating inefficiently , we will initiate a program of
s udy to determine what is necessary to allev iate the sanitary sewer
pro l c~s in this area.
In response to the statement by Mrs . McCormick concerning the
drowning of a child in Proctor Creek last year, I would like to bring
it to t he ir a ttention with your Community Relations Commission that
t':ie property owners in this area are responsible for fencing the
czeck in the ir back yard, as most of the property runs to the center
of the creek and is the responsibility of the abutting property owncar
it would be up to them for the safety of their children and for
t .eir neighbors children in connection with the flooding of Proctor
Creek in heavy rains that they fence their backyards to protect the
children . This is not a responsibility nor a function of any
govern:nental agency.
Yours truly ,

Dear Mrs. Paschall:
This is in answer to part of your letter of February 22, 1967
calling to our attention the unpaved block of Crumbley Street between
Whitehall Terrace and Ira Str~et.
For your information, the only way this street can be paved at
present is for the o~mers of 51'7. of° the property frontage signing a
petition requesting paving and agreeing to pay for same.
Iara sure you are aware of this section being included in the
Urban Rcnetral area, and I am sure that something will be done in this
area within the next year or so.
l n regard to the unsanitary conditions and compost pile at the
rear of this area, we will refer this matter to the Sanitary Department 1
of which Mr~. S. W. Graydon is the Sanitary Engineer.
Itoping this is the information which you desire, I am,

At the public hearing held on February 16 by the new Community Relations
Commission, a del egation of young people from the Vine City area presented
a petition wit h 202 signatures and a strong plea for help in keeping in
operation the Recreation Center at 141 Walnut Street, staffed by Mr.
Eddi e Murphey, who I understand has been paid by EOA funds .
I kno , the.t you are aware of the need in this area and of the urgeney
of this request, and also that you are familiar with any resources beyond
the immediate budget of your department. Is there any fay in which the
Commission can be of help 1n obt ai ning &dditional help , for example , through
the Federal Executive Board, which I understand is interested in youth
programs in Atlanta? Also , I have heard from a representative of the
Trinity Presbyterian Church, who was at the hearing and thinks a group
of churches might be able to help with salary for a recreation worker.
I have urged her (Mrs . F. Levering Neely) to contact you and work with
your department to formulate any plane .
Thie was one ot the most urgent needs brought to the Commission and I
would like to be able to make some report abo·.i.t it at the Cotlllllission
meeting on Friday, February 24, 1967 at 1:30 o' clock P • •

Dear Mr. Nixon:
I have written to you about one of the matter s brought befo re the Comml.ll1-ity
Rela tions Commi ssion at the February 16 meeting,
Another matt er which as f ar as we can t ell should be r eferred to you i s th
condition reported by Mrs . Nannie McCormick of 1843 Oalanont Dr., N. W.
McCormick, who i s a public s chool t eacher , s t a t ed tha t the drainage in the
area is so bad that it is often i .mpossible for r esidents to use their
ba thtubs or washing machines and the odor from the sewer s becomes almost
unbearable .
Mrs . McCormick al so expressed the concern of the neighborhood over an open
cree , where l ast summer a child drowned , and 1hieh i s a cons t ant s our 0 o of
anxi ty to the parents in the area. They would welcome assi s t ance in
l essening the danger.
le have had also
reque::;t from ~omeone who
meeting but who telephoned t he fol l owing :
as not able to a ttend the
I would liko to see t he bl ock paved b tween Whit ehall Terrace nd Ira
St reet on Crumbley St ree t. There ha been five generations in t his spot
of land on Crumbley Street and the str0et has never ever been paved. I
would like very much if we could get it pavod . I . ark at night and on
the hot summer nights it io just terriblc--tho dust i s horriblo . I t'
worse in th aumm r than in t he winter, but tho arune probleI:1 xist in
the wint er , with the dus t ~nd all . In the you can not sit on thv
front porch because the dust drives you inside . The sanitary conditions
ar also b
in this are . In the tear of Cruobley Street there i s a
regular co po3t pil with odds and nds And food . You can aee this
scene on 11 three street . There have be n n w apartments built in
this area , but th dwell ers do not care about t e look of the plao evidently. Thy foel if it look
ood on the inside for e t the re t of
the s t r et. Th ae place would be much cleaner i f t hey had a oaretak r.
I understand you have to have a p rcont
of re ident~ to complain
bout this typ of condition, but aino th oe ap rtmente h v b~ n built,
I do not st nd a chance in gettin anything done about this slum condition.
My queation is, wh t can be done?
