Dear Mr. Sheats:
Thank you for your letter of May 19 , 1969 regarding
the appraisal you have had made of the above p roperty.
Does the figure you quoted include both the City and
the County property or does it just pertain to the
latter?
Would you be good enough to send me a Xerox of Mr~ Dabney •s
complete appraisal and thank you again for your assistance,

Re: Adamsville Health Center
Dear Mr. Delius:
The above prop e rty was recently appraised by an M.A.I. appraiser
at $82,500.00, and the County has an o ffer from a private
citize n for $85,000.00.
However, the Commission instructed
this office to hold up any negotiation until the attitude of
the dity was ascertained.
The appraisal was made by Mr. John Dabne y, M.A.I., and is full
and compl ete, with nume rous comparables.
You are at lib e rty
to examin e same should you care to do so.
Our offer from the private citizen cannot be held op e n
indefinitely, and therefore we reques t a statement of the
City's desires as soon as practicable.
Yours v ery trul y,

A substantial offer has b een made for private use , with

While we will probably occupy the new Adamsville Health
Center by June , we are oblig~ted under the t erms of our
contract uith the State Health Department to continue use
of the old heal th center for public health purposes only
until the f all of next year, and we may find it necessary
to use the building even after that because many of our
programs are on the verge of major expausion.
We lrnow of yoUT need and interest r egarding additional
f acilities in this area, and we will bear them in mind if
we are able to rel ease the building i n the near futur e .

Since we c annot ge t State a d Federal frn1ds for ,my construction off Count y

the need of t he Co1.mty to keep ti t l e to as much parking and drive .-ray area
as practicable .
I am su e you ·1de rstand. t hat thi s i s a t entative proposal subj ect to approval of the County authoritie s , as well as the State and Fede ral agencies
i nvolved.
We appreciate th~ hel pf ul and coop~rative attitude you nnd Hr. Landers have

The COlmty is planning to expand the Ada11sville Heal th Center in or der to
meet the urgent needs of this growing community, but the presence of the
City Recreati on Center attached to th · existing health center buil ding makes
it somewhat difficult t o plan an adequate and e·"ficient additiono The County
i s also concerned about the effect this recreation center will have on parking facilities and futu re expansions which will undoubtedly be necessary.
On the other hand , I gather f rom conversations with you and your staff tha t
you find the recreation building and the situation in which you have to use it
f ar from ideal, and that the Ci ty too r ealizes the pressing ne ed for better
recreational facilities for this area.
In view of our mutual dissatisfaction with the present arrangements ancl our
need to plan better for the fut ure , the County would be interested in considering a proposal from you under which the City would give up the r ecreation center
in return for some other pr operty or consideration which you might find more
usef ul. We have in mind that ,..,hi.l e you ,·might not be ci.ble to relinquish use of
this building :unmediately, we :could work out some arrangement whereby the County
could s ecure clear title for the recreation building now in order to facilitate
the approval of a Federal grant for expanding the health center.
I regret that we cannot be more specifi c , but we obviousl y do not know your
needs, and I am sure you and your staff could come up with a much better proposed exchange than we could.
The pleasant relationships and close cooperation we have enjoyed with your Department in the past l eads me to believe that we can work out some agreement
which will be advantagoous to both the City and County o
/ 'I

Dear Jack:
In Re: Health Center and Recreation Building
at Delmar Lane and Brownlee Road, S. W.
This letter is in response to _your phone call and letter
of August 13, 1964, concerning the aboveo
As I understand the situa tion, under the "Plan of Improvement'r in 1952 the City of Atlanta assumed operation of the
Recreation Building and the County continued managing the Health
Center, all at ,the same locationo
Around the year 19L~9, according to the County, the entire parc e l of land was dedicated for public hea lth purpos es until 1969, in order to qualify for State and Federal fundso You
outlined that the County desires to expand the Health Center,
which would involve rededication for 20 yearso
It is my opinion that when the "Plan of Improvement'
took effect in 1952 that the City of Atlanta acquired fee simp l e
title to the property used by the Recreation Building subject to
any incumberances existing upon said property at the said timeo
It is my further op inion that the County do es not have
the legal right or authority to rededicate the recreation property
for an additional 20 years inasmuch as any interest the County
�Mro Jack Co Delius
Page 1f2
I
had in said property was extinguished by the Legislature under
the "Plan of Improvement 11
0
It is my further opinion that the City of Atlanta would
not have t9~ authority to dedicate park property for a period
of 20 years 'for public health purposeso
I trust that you will find the foregoing satisfactory~
Yours very truly,
Ferrin Yo Mathews

Adamsville Health ·center
Dear Mr. Ivey:
This will acknowledge receipt of your letter of July 10 concernii.1g
the p~operty in Adamsville that is being used as a recreational
center wherein you ask for an opinion as to the rights of the Cicy
has in and to that certain tract of land in Land Lot 243 of the
14th District of Fulton County, Georgia~; that is cur rently being
used by the City Parks Depar tment for recreationa l purposes.
Section 4(a) of the 1951 Ga. Laws at page 3113 provides as
follows:
"The legal title . to all real property owned by Fulton County within
the corporate limits of the City of Atlanta as the same may be extended on
or after the dat e this Act is appr oved and assigned to or u sed in
conne ction wi th a parks and r e crea tional syst em on the dat e this Act
is approve d, shall on January 1, 1952 pass to the Lity of Atlant a
with all rights and appurtenances thereto and subject to all li e ns
and emcumbrances thereon~ unless conveyed by deed to said Cit y of
Atlant a a t an earlie r da teo If no e a rlier conve yanc e is ma de , t he

It would appear to me f r om the facts that you h av e fur nishe d t h a t this

no up-to-date and sanitary swinnning pool in this areao We know that
you know that all public pools that are not chlorinated in this city
have been or will be condemned by the Health Departmento We know of
no definite date set for closing these poolso
We do know from our personal survey that Mosley, Washington and
Maddox are in this condition, therefore, are condemned or should beo
As far as we can ascertain no plans are known to replace or update
these poolso
Now Anderson Park is in a state of development and this community is
proud of the progress made as o£ ' this dateo We also know that it was
too long a time before any improvement was made, and we feel that it
should be completed as soon as pos iibleo· We know that funds are
limited to some degreei but we also feel that a pool at Anderson Park
this year should be nlllllber one priority over all others, becaus e of
the unsanitary conditions of every pool in this complete areao
It was stated, factually or not, by a city official that Anderson
Park would have a pool and bath house completed this year (1969) by
the close of school and opening of city parkso The people of this
connnunity, especially the children and teenagers, are hopefully
looking forward to the completion and opening of this recreation
facilityo
�As stated in the newspapers and verbally to members of this

>: Dear Mrs. Smith:
.Thank you very much for your letter of February 24, 1969,_
which was received on March 6, 1969 regarding the need .·
,. for a swimming pool at Anderson Park. I address this
letter primarily to your since your name appeared first
f on the l e tter of petition and I am taking the liberty
of sending carbon cop ies to Messrs . Miller and Hart
~ since this office has addresses on these t wo gentlemen.
In addition, I am taking _the liberty of sending c arbon


copies of this letter along with copies of yours to


the members of the Park Committee of the Board of Aldermen


c,·

·:. and staff members of this department .
'
!. :
Out of the fifteen swimming pools currently operated by
the City of Atlanta, five of them do not meet modern
Fulton County Health Department specifications. These
,_. pools are Pi~dmoI)t, Maddox , Washington, Oakland City,
L and Mozley. Every conceivable attempt is made to maintain
rJ sufficient maximum hygenic standards in that . these five
~'.; mentioned pools are not pres·ently fi l t e red. Each and
1--: every one of them is scheduled for replacement in cur
-~ 15 year Park and Recreation Plan~

Fi We
particularly appreciated your kind rema rks concerning .
at Anderson Park and
location doe s nee d a
· swimming pool. However , a large percentage of the 1969
Park Improvement Budget has be en earmarked for Model
Cities and urban beautification. A total of some 32
different projects are listed which will~ we hope, be
comple ted in 1969. This will utilize every penny of
funds made ava ilable to thi s ·departme nt by ·_ the Boa rd of

When Mr. ·w. Z. Miller recently came before the Parks
Committee of the Board of Aldermen requesting that a
_.. . , ,. ~ swimming pool be built at the earliest possible time
.
/ at Anderson Park, several members of the Committee stated
that they would make an attempt or at least request additional capital improvement funds for this department
from the new bond issue authorized late las~ year. As
1 I understand it, a number of capital projects from all
twenty-odd departmeijts are being listed now and .priorities
will shortly be est~blished as to the utilization of
this bond money. It must cover sewers, streets, bridges,
etc.; not jgst parks.
A member of this department, Mr. Charles Devon of our
Park Engineering Division,- was present when a community
services coordinator stated at a meeting held in your
-community last year that plans did include a swimming
pool and bathhouse for Anderson Park to be completed
during 1969. Mr. Devon was completely shocked at this
statement and corrected the man immediately thereafter.
Not even the undersigned, as General Manager of Parks,
-has the authority to obligate the City of Atlanta · to ·· projects -where no funds exist.
Please be assured that I do have a definite personal
interest in the future growth of recreation facilities
for the · Dixie Hills area and in particular Anders-o n -Park.
You can indeed count on me to the extent that I am
allowed to construct new items within the capacity. of
available funds. ·

Dear Mr. Delius,
Attach_e d is the findings for camper cost
at Resident and Wilderness camps.
I do not believe it shows a true picture
of cost, because we had to take the totals on an
average of campers - as you know our camp has a
maximum of 40 campers per session and this was
filled most of the time. However this being our
second year of operation, I feel that we have improved on attendance over the first year. It takes
some time to educate the parents to let their
youngsters leave home for a week at the time.
I do feel that this ·y ear we will have the
maximum each week and that we will have a
waiting list for area's to participate in our camping
program.
If I can be of further service to you, please
do not hesitate to call on me.
Sincerely,

Thank you for the copy of your letter to the Militacy Ai~craft
Storage and Disposition Center (MASDC ) , Davis Monthan AFB,
Arizona 85707. Please note the enclosed letter £~om MASDC and
the brochure provided by the Center on deeaUed instructions
for the acquisition, disassembly, and transportation of a
donated USAF aircraft.
Regarding the F-86F series aircraft which Colonel R. P. Colline
identifies in his letter as being available in Arizona, I believe
that you would find this single•engine jet fighter suitable for a
playground . Also, Since the G orgi Air National G1,1 rd at Dobbins
AFB previously operated the F-86D aircraft, their maintenance peronnel should be able to as 1st tn the bandllng of n P·86F. Thie
led$ to considering the Georsta Air Natton 1 Guard, namely the
116th Military Airlift Wing (ANG) to llow Brig dier G ner, l
Thompson time to -rrango for use of ANG · irlift foi this civic
proj ct . The Stat of Ge rgt.a, as well as the City of Atlanta,
hould rec iYe f~vorable publicity long with Geo~gia Tech in
this overall proj ct.
I am enclo~tng
copy of thi · letter which you _y want to provt.d
to Mr. Dan sweat in his cap city -as Director of Govetl\lllental Liai on
for the City of Atl nt4.

Attention:
Mr. Ferrin Y. Mathews, Assistant City Attorney
· Mr. Thoma s F. Choyce, Associate City Attorney
Dear Ferrin and Tom:
This letter conce rns a problem we are having with Fulton County
involving ce rtain County and City property known as the Adamsville
Health/Recreation Center, and also land now owned by Fulton County
(and sometime s referred to as the "Nelson prop erty") a djacent to
Bagley Pa rk in the Northeast s e ction of our City; fina lly, as pa rt
.of the ove r a ll pa ckage , thi s l e tter a lso c·o'nc e rns an undeve loped
park site in Northwes t At l anta , known as the Sandy Creek Park Site .
The latte r is adjacent to the Fulton County Airport.
Let me s ay at the onset tha t the Pa rks Committe e is aware tha t
Mr. Choyce is th e Atto r ney assign ed to the Parks Dep artment, but
the y f eel s ince cons i derabl e amount o f r esearch a pparently was done
by Mr . Ma thews in r endering a de c is ion concerni ng Adamsvill e , that
this l e tte r should b e addressed to both of you gentl emen.
I am enclo sin g Xe rox copie s of the ent ire Adams ville, Bagley, and
Sandy Creek Pa rk files. I have a sk e d my s e cre t a ry to place these
copies in chr ono log ica l order and, to f ur the r simplify th e ma tter, I
have a ttemp t ed to ext ract f rom the Adamsvill e f il e a ll the pertinent
inf ormation as to wh o said wha t, an d wh en , It i s inc lude d as an
enclosur e to this l e tte r.
To summari ze the Adamsville Health/Re c reation Center s itua tion, th ere

You have rendered a legal opinion stating that we do own half the
property, and your opinion has been substantiated by a legal opinion
rendered to Mr. Paul Ivey by Mr. Ralph Jenkins, of your office. The
County Attorney ha s advised me that he is in the process of selling
this property to a priva te individual for its recently appraised
value of $85,000.00 if we don't make up our minds quickly as to what
we intend to do about buying it ourselves. He made it clear that his
position is the City has no int e rest in the property. However,
shortly before Mr. Earl Landers' retirement, Mr. Landers contacted
the County Attorney and apparently worked out an agreement where the
City would have to pay for only half the appraised value. You will
note, among the Xerox copies attached, my copy of Mr. Landers' letter
to Mr. Harold Sheats.
Problem No. 2 involved a small parcel of land adjacent to Bagley Park,
which for years we thought belonged to the City of Atlanta • . Some time
ago, prior to discovering who really owned th e land, my department installed a numb e r of white-way poles which.lie on the property by a
. matter of a few inches. By the time we discovered tha t we did not own
the land, Fulton County let it be known that they were going to widen
Pharr Ro a d. Mr. Paul Ivey, our Land Agent, r e ached an agreement with
the County whereby the County would buy this private property, generally
known as the "Ne lson property," and would take off the front of it tha t
which they need e d for the widening of Pharr Road, then would transf er
this property to the City of Atl anta at the ir net cost. In turn, the
City ~ould tran s fer to the County the front a ge of Bagley Pa rk, also
needed for the wide ning of Pharr Ro a d. The n e t results of this transaction would be that th e City of Atlant a would pay to Fulton County
app"ro x ima t e ly $2,500.00. Ever since 1964 Mr. Ivey has be en making
repeated efforts to get Fulton County to go ah ead and prepare a deed to
transfer the "Ne lson property" to the City. Mr. Ivey has let it be
known that the City is r ea dy to buy th e property; However, Mr. Ivey
reports that h e has been put off on nume rou s occasion s by variou s r e pre·sentative s of the County. The County h a s now cont a ct ed Mr. Ivey and is
asking, nWhy in the world doesn't the City go ahe a d and buy it, :i and
have now plac e d the value at $3,500.00. The County's representative
says that the land is now worth that amount and, if we wish to buy it,
that is what it is going to cost us.
Thrown into this is a small and rather minor situation where the County
desires to acqui r e fro m the City what we call the Sanely Creek Park Site
in Northwe st Atl ant a . The County ne ed s the l a nd to expand th e ir cl ear
zone fo r th e Fulton County Airport. We are perfectly willing to accommo dat e Fulton Coun ty in s e lling them Sandy Cre ek Par k Site at th e appra is ed
value so that they might exp and th e runways . The prop e rty wa s dee de d to
the City of Atl ant a with a numb er of r es trictions and ea s ements and is
in the flood pl a i ns ; there f ore we wou l d not be lo s ing any p ar ticul arly
v a lua bl e p i ece o f park pr ope rty .

What the City of Atlanta would like to do is to purcha s e from Fulton
County their half of the Adamsville/Health Recreation property for
app;oximately $42,500.00, to pay them appro x imately $2,500.00 for
the "Nelson property" adjacent to Bagley Park, and to sell the County
the Sandy Creek Park Site for its Apprais ed value. What the County
apparently proposes to do is to sell the City Adamsville for $85,000.00,
the "Nelson property" for $3,500.00, and to pay the City the exa ct
appraisal for the Sandy Creek Park Site property.
It is the opinion of the Parks Committee of the Board ·of Aldermen that
every possible effort h as been made to settle the above in a friendly
and fair manner and we wish to do nothing whatsoever that would disrupt
friendly relations between our sister government. However, the Parks
Committee apparently has grown quite weary of the discussions and
problems arising from these transactions and has instructed me to proceed to turn the ma tter over to you to be settled from the legal standpoint,
Alderman Leftwich has expressed a willingness on his part to go with
you to Fulton County and attempt to settle this ma tter; however the
Parks Commi tt ee is so disguste d with the whole affair that they would
be perfectly happy to let the courts de cide the Adamsville and Bagley
situation. App a r ently, at this point, we are unde r no legal comp ulsion
to sell th e Sandy Creek Park Sit e to Fulton County .although possibly
they h ~ve the right of cond emna tion in the expansion of the ir public
airport.
I know both of you gentlemen are busy and so we particularly appreciate
your assistance, and I am
\;°"dially,

I doubt if th survey being cond cted on the location
of the Cyclor ma i of very much value in deciding the
question we
d in mind.
I al o doubt very much if a vi itor to Atlanta on either
vacation or business could give a valuable opinion
to
heth r th Cyclor m should be located in Gr nt Park or
do ntown.
A more m aaingtul Ul"Vey would be on the number of
pe le who visit Atlanta on bu ineea, p rticu rly convention •
meetings, etc. ,, ho actually visit the Cyclor
, and if it
ere located downtown would it attract ddition I visitor •
It may be extremely diffic lt nd e.xpen iv to ob in this

Thank you very much for your recent letter to Mayor Ivan Allen , Jr .,

I , too , sincerely appreciate your bringing this matter to my
attention and you may rest assured a full investigation is under
way regarding the use of the ord "nigger0 twice in the presence
of out- of .... town guests and tourists ttending the cyclor ama lecture .
You are certainly right that there is a definit e 1 ck of sophistic tion and culture on the part of some of the cyclorama lecturers .
I h sitate tom ke this dmission , but it is a fact and one th th
been vividly brought to the attention of the City for many ye rs .
On one occ sion when av cancy xisted t th Cyclorama , the Personnel
Department somehow failed to list the s lary in th

ho do write us is that

that the cycloram is one place t hat most all v i sitors to Atlanta

impression or to injure the rapport we know an out- of-towner
