Sheltering Arms provides facilities for protective care, guidance and
training during the day for children-primarily of working mothers
of low income. These may be extended following investigation to
those having special needs.
Sheltering Arms is open Mondays through Fridays 7 a.m. to
6 p.m. The Nursery provides care for boys 2½ to 10 years of age
and for girls 2 ½ to 12 years of age.
The fee for day care at Sheltering Arms is based on individual
family income. Each family pays according to a fee attainable within
financial limits. Most choose to be as self-sustaining as possible. The
Social Worker assists the family in determining whether we are the
appropriate agency to meet their child care needs and in setting a
realistic fee for service.
�Sheltering Arms operates year round with a staff of director,
social worker, educational consultant, two center supervisors, sixteen teachers and assistants, a secretary-bookkeeper, two part-time
pediatricians and five maintenance personnel. D uring the summer
supply teachers are added to st aff.

Dear Members:
How could a year be so short and yet so full of problems and pleasures
for Sheltering Arms Association . If it were not for t he interest and
support of each of you my job would have been an ard uous one. This
you recall was the year in which we faced an operating defici t . However, friends came to our assistance and we will be able to maintain
our services of the highest quality because of t heir generosity. We
have 6,500 hours of volunteer service from yout h groups, garden
clubs, civic clubs and our own members. They provided an enriched
program for our boys and girls throughout the year.
The committees all did their jobs as assigned and I am indeed
grateful to each chairman for the work which you did to keep t he
agency operating at top efficiency. It would seem appropriate to
mention a few highlights even though each committee could not be
included in my brief report.
The Personnel Committee had a particularly busy year in
assisting the Executive Director in replacing eight key positions. In
each case we felt that we secured very well qualified persons to fill
the vacancies. The salary scales have been improved each time t he
budget has been presented to the Chest.
�The Building and Grounds Committee has spent time, talent
and funds on repairs and redecoration of Osgood Sanders Center and
Play Equipment needs were met at Dorothy Arkwright Center. The
Wayside Garden Club, Magnolia Garden Club and the Atlanta Junior
League have made substantial contributions for capital expenditures.
Social Work Advisory Committee assisted our new Social
Worker in orientation to the agency. They set up procedures for an
annual review of each client to set fees for service.
We are most careful to adhere to health and sanitation regulat ions and to serve adequate, well balanced meals which our Nutrition
Committee r.ecommends. Our clinics are operated by qualified Pediatricians and the Medical Committee carries out their suggestions.
The Finance Committee built and structured the operating
budget for providing service to the 350 different children in our care
last year . This was done at a cost of $2.40 per day per child. We are
justly proud of our economical operation of our two facilities. The
United Appeal is our chief source of income and we are indeed grateful for their understanding and support of our high quality of day
care services in t he community.
To serve as your President has been a source of great pleasure
to me and I do wish t o thank everyone who has made my year a
happy experience. I particularly enjoyed the privilege of working
with our fine Executive Director, Miss Margaret Colbert. Sheltering
Arms had a richer program because of the active interest of our
Board of Directors and the splendid service of our entire staff.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Harry L. Spring, Jr., President

Dear Alex:
V/e have rev i£wed the report "Stvdy 0csi~n for tho Central Atlanta Planning
Process" whic was prepared by Alon M . Voorhe es & As:;ociotes, Inc . for Central
Atlanta Progress, Inc . and the City Planning Department . Our foeling is t1ot
the approach sugges d by ' is report is much too exi'c nsive for th is sf'og~ of the
gc:-ne a d has one g laring weak , ess in tha t it proposes o form out a rea t por ion
of the re:;eorch to private c on:u ltiny firms . Our exper ience has been that it is


..uch more so isfactory to op2roach th is type of proje ct slowly, uti lizing the


rc~urccs of those who ore the most v itally c oncerned .
We propose tha~ the tech nical work b<J do .c by the planning staffs of tho City
Pionning Deportment and Central Atlanta Pro . ress, Inc . ond that the ir wor 1 l:e done
under the direction of and in cl o:ie coo)eration wi h a c omm ittee to be maJe up of
.,yself as chairman , three members of the Bocrd of Alderme n and three me.. b rs of t:1e
CAP Execu ive Boord . Th is committee would insure thot the interests of boti1 the
C ity at Iorgo and the in~erests of th.::i property owners and me rchants of the Ccntrol
Business Distr ict were well r\,;presented .
\Ve further propose that this corr.miUee m~ot several times with staff members
of the City Planning Department and CAP to aiscuis the objectives that should be
pur~uec..l in o study of ti,e Control Busines!> D htrict . We think thot the mambers of this
committee, as well as tile staff members , should hove a dGfinite and clear-cut k!Ga
of just what is to be accomplished by such p s~uc!y . We think it is at this point that
we con decide how much outside technical support will be necessary to enable us

December 20, 1967
Mr . Rodney Cook
34 10th Street, N . E.
Atlanta, Georgia 30309
Dear Rodney:
This letter is in response to one sent by Senator Dan McIntyre to Mayor
Allen about the traffic: problem in Buckhead . His major concern is the proposed
implementation of the Buckhead loop by Fulton County. As you may remember
the Buckh ad loop was conceived by this department and totally rejected by
Buckheod . However, In passing the 163 Bond Issue, th people in Buckh ad convinced
the County to include some prefects that, in ff ct, do begin creation of portions
of the loop at a low r level of rvice, i.e., collectors rather than limited ace $S
freeways,
As th present time Bill McGeorge. of Fulton County Public Works is actively
pushing for completion of the loop up to a point (Se I on Figure I) . He ha be n
working with us on it and has a ked for our support which we are now pr par d to
giv with som r servations and conditions. One r s rvotion is that the propos d north
t rminus ot Wieuca Road will probably create more problems that it will solve. The
loop shou Id be brought back into ochtr e Road or at I t to P achtr e Dunwoody
(Se 2 on Figure 2) . The cond r aervation cone rns proposed widths which vary from
two to thr e to four Ian s. Th rood should be a coll ctor with a uniform four Ian s ·
from beginning to nd. Th bridging of f-()56 north (North Fulton Expr ssway) should
reflect this width.
Last, but not least, our support is condltlonol on a full und rstanding of our
complete position. This loop may h Ip Buckh ad•s interval circulatlon problem but
that is about all. It is not soluti n to the Peachtr Road corrldot traffic pr I m
which begins fn D Kalb County and ends south of ookwood St tion. (Se attach d
r on Buckhead traffic probl m nd Figure 2, e clally No. 2). I y this to
�Mr . Rodney Cook

attempt to establish priorities . The overall benefit to the total community is Iimited .
Since capital improvement funds are in very short supply, they should be spent on pr iorities
which are more urgent in nature and w ii I resu It in greater overall benefit .
I am su re that you are aware the City is actively participating in and receiving
data from the Atlanta Area Transportation Study . Up to now, this has been conducted\ \
mostly by technicians with little involvement by pol icy makers . Recently, a polrcy
committee was formed of which the Mayor i a member . I sent you a short paper on this'for your consideration .
The nature ~f the Buckhead problem, in fac t many of the traffic problems
throughout the City, such as Campbellton Road , and the patchwork manner in which they
a re being handled leads me to soy that some more log ical, comprehensive approach must
be adopted by pol icy makers for considerfog our transportation problems.

The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.,
Mayor, City of Atlanta,
City Hall,
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Ivan:
There is concern in the Buckhead area about the growing traffic problem on
Peachtree . Several people have inquired about the proposed Buckhead Loop
which would relieve the traffic on Peachtree north of the Roswell Road-Peachtree intersection.
This loop was i ntended to connect the Lenox Square area with the Buckhead
area without crowding the Peachtree road itself. With the new Phipps Center
on the old Alexander property, the problem will be impossible unless something i s done. It is my understanding that the County has reconnnended a
plan, but when your Planning Department was consulted no one could tell me
of any definite progress in this area.
I talked to Rodney Cook this morning and he was very opposed to the County
plan, but in order to relieve the condition the city will have to come up
with some counter plan. This problem is tooaccute t o remain unresolved. I
have tried to talk to Collier Glad~en several times but have been unable to
contact him, but it does appear to me that the City Planning Department
should immediately tackle this problem and come up with a constructive workabl~ solution to the traffic problem in the Buckhead area.
If I can do anything to help, please let me know.
Sincerely,
~~

FROM:
Collier
SUBJECT:
City Bond Referendum
(') 0...Y"\
"'-J JJ J
This is, more or less, a follow-up of our brief conservation of a
few days ago concerning this subject. I feel that some serious
consideration should be given to the question of when would be the
most advantageous time for Atlan ta to consider another general
obli gation bond referendum? The funds from the last two bond issues
are nearly exhausted, and the City ' s Capital Improvement Program
reflects over $400 million dollars in unfunded capital improvement
projects. The Planning Department can continue to prepare survey and
planning applications, applications for code enforcement programs and
updating of the Community Facilities Plan, however, we need some firm
guide as to future financing of the se projects and facilities, plus we
would like to make the Capital Improvements Program functional.
There are several events that .we know will occur and others which are
being considered, for example, the national elections in the fall of
'68 and the city election in the fall of '69. The Transit Authority
is considering, as I understand, a bond issue for financing a transit
system in the fall of '68 (along with general election); the Atlanta
School Board is considering another school bond issue in the Spring of
'68.
I am concerned that if consideration is not given soon that the right
time may not be before 1970 - can we afford to wait that long?
Your thought s on this matter would be e x tremely helpful. Also, I would
like your opinion concerning the desirability of state legislation enabling
the Mayor and Board of Aldermen to issue General Obligation Bonds without
referendum, amount to be limited by State Legislature. Similar legislation
has been passed for Fulton County which is awaiting approval by the voters
as a constitutional amendment.

Housing Resources Clerical Personnel
The correspondenc e from Cecil Ale x ander , Chairman of the Housing
Resources Committee, to Mayor Allen requesting an additional clerical
p e rsonnel be made available to the Housing Resources Committee for
the purpose of bringing the CIP data and statistics on low and moderate
income housing up-to-date points up the need for a fulltime City research
and information capability.
I do not argue with the HRC request. However , I believe that this
function should be part of the on-going responsibility of the Planning
Department.
It would be a shame for us to have spent $ 750 , 000 on a Community
Improvement Program and not have the capability of maintaining
current data in a use able form after th e CIP project is finished . I
think all of us are aware of the tremendous value of the various CIP
reports. For the first time we have had information on housin~
including individual computerized information on each structure as
well as projected requirements for the future.
This information made it possible for us to launch the critically neede d
housing program almost a .year before the complete report was finished .
�Mr. Landers
Page Two
September 20, 1967
I am sure that we are going to find that we will be able to use the
information and recommendations in other reports to implement
timely action in other areas.
However, unless we are able to record and document what action has
been taking place and complete at least an annual review of progress
with updating of our facts and figures, I am afraid the CIP will have
missed its mark.
I think that we also should give careful consideration as to exactly
what we want the Housing Resources Committee to do - how big an
operation you want to make out of it. I think the same thing holds
true for every other quasi-governmental authority or agency that
has been set up in the City, particularly the Atlanta Youth Council
and the Community Relations Commission.
It might be wise for a special committee of the Board of Aldermen
to take a good look at these agencies before the budget is finalized
this year. I do not mean to imply that they should be cut out or
cut back. It might be decided that they are woefully underfinanced.
My concern is that we all know exactly what the purpose of these
agencies is and more importantly that those people who run these
agencies know what the City expects of them and if we are going to
continue the operation they should be given the tools with which to
operate according to the wishes of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen .

Dear Mayor Allen:
I am sure you would be interested i n learning of the reactions of the
members of the Nash-Bans Coordinating Committee to the progress report
made by their selected r epresentatives who met with you in your offic e
on t he morni ng of September 13, 1967, at your invitation.
The extent to which the cooperative relationship being pl anned between
t he committee and representatives of t he departments of the City
Government havi ng responsibility for Urban Development to i nhance
the welfare of all the people l ivi ng in the area can be outstanding;
if the sentiments expre ssed become a functional reality.
There were two questions raised however , that the committee could
not answer : (1) 'Why the names of the total membership of the Nash- Bans
Committee which the special committee was authorized and instructed
to pre sent to you, did not appear i n the news release? It would helpful if you would advise us as to what circumstances could be indicated
that t he names were presented to and accepted by you.
(2) I n t he light of the agreement reached which provides that all
future developments in the Nash- Bans area would r epresent a cooperative
enterpri se i n which t here would be participation of representatives
of the nei ghborhood, this would suggest that at an earl y date a conference might be held with Mr o Rodney Cook, of t he city department of
Urban Renewal, Mr- . Collier Gladin, of City Planning and Dr. F.d.ward S.
Cook , of the Board of Education~ Through such a conference a complete
picture of the calculated developments in immediate contemplation may
be given. This , of cours , would include schools, parks, playgrounds
ets. It would also answer the quest ion as to the extent to which the
building of a school should take i nto consideration the overall plan of
development f or the Nash-Bans Area .
I f you f i nd yourself in agreement with what is being suggested it
would be appreciated i f you would give the persons at the top operative
levelsthe benefit of your reaction.

Dear Mr. Flanigen:
Since my return to ··' the City this week, I have reviewed the
Dari' Williams court case involving the property at Greenwich Street
and the Southwest Connector, which took place during my absence.
Although the ruling by the court was unfavorable to the City's
interest, I understand that the matter may be appealed by the City
within thirty days of that ruling. From discussing the matter briefly
with the City Attorney's office I find that they would be agreeable
to the appeal action and have some reason to feel that the City might
be successful in this effort.
Becaus e of the importance of this rezoning action upon the
We st End Urban Renewal Project Area and the influence of this use upon
other properties similarly · located along the Southwest Connector, I
would strongly urge that you and the Zoning Committee seriously
consider asking the City Attorney's office to appeal this recent court
action .
Thank you for your consideration of this r equest.
Yours truly ,

of m1d•eummer violence. Our p rtioul r ooncern is with unemployed teen•

hood improvement programs. Significantly. our big handic pis a laak of
recreational facilities in th area -- no awi i ng pools, no oommunity club
houses, no
CA nor YWCA, no library, no supervised reore tional tao111tiea.
hope, t hrough Project 00S, h~ ver, to adv rtise our needs nd enoour e
a little more effective oooper tion from City H 11.
Admittedly, the D partment of Pl nn1ng is not 1

The Alignment of th

Data1
October 5, 1964
Southwaat Connector-.-
During the month of September, 1964, Alderman Jack Summer• and a
representative of Fulton County Public Work• Department, Kr. McGeorge.
met with the reaidents of the neighborhood which ia generally located
in the Weatview Drive, Lawton· Street, and the L & N l&ilroed area to
diacusa the relocation of a new atreet connector.
The project in question ia the $1,700,000 Southwest Connector, a
1963 Fulton County Bond Project, which was for the conatruction of a n.ev
four lane connector between Cascade Road - Gordon load and the four lane
Marietta Boulevard. This included an interchange with the Waat Expresava7
which will relieve 1erioua traffic problema on Northaide Drive and the
entire vest aide of Atlanta.
·
,,
The general subject of Alderman Summers' meeting was that the home•
owners felt that this project, if developed as planned, would destroy
the neighborhood they had worked so hard to develop. They felt that the
other alternatives should be conaidered. Some of the suggestions were to
align this roadway with Ashby Street, another was to dev lop the roadway
either over the L & M lailroad or within the railroad right-of-way thereby
eliminating that eection of track. Still an.other suggestion vas to generally
follow along the vat aide of the L & N llailroa.d.

in the United States t oday. They do not, unfortunately, reflect some
of the thoughtful analysis contained in the body of the Design Report
itself .
Taking the points covered in the reconnnendations in the order
of their appearance, we would make the following comments:
(1)
The statement of need "from the public and private leadership
of Atlanta to a goal of a 11 designed city and to the progrom
needed to achieve it" would certainly have the support of
every Design Commission member. We do wish that more emphasis
had been placed in the study on the development of such a
progi-am.
(2)
The Con:anission ould agree that "Physical Design plans related
to the Community Improvement Program must be carried out by
the best professional designers available . 11 We would have
appreciated some specific recommendations as to how this
might be accomplished. For example..,
believe that more us
might be mad of design oo titions and we had hoped to see
some discussion of whether and under what oiroumstanoes the
consultant would support or oppose such procedures~ Also,
some coneideration of an "awrds program" might have b en
i:;rovided in the r port.
(3)
The Co
isaion would probably support th
id
that stTh
city must pr pal" and adopt o d sign ...growth strategy." Th
r port, how r, is not too cl ar on what suoh a tr t ~
would con iet of or ho to achi ve it.
(!.)
(5)
(6)
Th Oommi s1on would most lik ly support th consul nts'
reOonJm ndstiona th t de 1 n control n ed to be
pro d
"through stren th ning of the Subdivision and Zoni.Jlg Or-di•
nc s" and prob bly that th Ci ic D sign C i sion n d
to b
trength n d lo, but
r not too clear as to how
thi 1 to b socompllshed. It would hlv. be n helpful if
the Consultant could h v . prov1d d
p cifie a
ndm ts
(in rough dr ft) for consider tion ot public offici 1 and
Co is ion m bra.
�Mr . Collier Gladin
(7)
Jme 1,. 1967

The statement that "a formal design review procedure " is
needed is confusing insofar as the Atlanta Civic Design
Commission is serving such a function t the pr sent time.
If the intent was to requir that all major private oonst ruet1on in the oity be made sub ct to suoh review, we wish it
hed been stated more clearly. Under this circumstance,. we
also would like t o see some consid ration of recommended
limits and cut-off points fer review of private construction .
(8 & 9) .Again, we wupport th r col!lmendations that a CED pl an and
tree ordinance bed~ loped .
e would have pref rr d to see th se
itBms headipg this particular list b cause the bottom position
does ap r tow ak n them.
·
In summary, 111e feel the report f lla short in the most important
area--the are of recommendations . We are concerned both with the
recommendations ctuslly pres nted and with those that were not. We
beli
th t the hand of public agenoiea cone rn d with d s i gn m t ters

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Planning and Development Committee
FROM:
Planning Staff
SUBJECT:
Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2 with
Candeub, Fleissig & Associates
The Planning Staff has not been satisfied with the work of Candeub,
Fleissig & Associates who have been responsible for the following
studies:
Planning, Fiscal, Economic Base/Marketability, Equal
Opportunity in Housing and Design.
Although this firm enjoys a national .
reputation for its work in the field of planning and connnunity development,
we have found their work to suffer in Atlanta for the following reasons:
(1) Most of the interim and/or preliminary reports and memoranda
submitted to date consists of a parroting back or rehash of locally
available facts, statistics and data. Often the facts and information submitted to the consultant or generated and gathered by them
have been either erroneously used or applied with little, if any,
attempt made at verification prior to the incorporation in a report or
memoranda. All of this appears to point to one or more of the following:
inadequate research, local consultation, follow-up, and/or general
negligence on the part of the consultant.
(2) Based on the reports and memoranda submitted thus far, little
if any attempt has been placed on analysis of the facts, their impli~
cations or consequences, or to relate one report to another. Few
conclusions and recormnendations have been drawn . Where conclusions
and reconnnendations have been drawn and set forth, it is difficult
for the planning staff to see how, from whence, and on the basis of
�Page 2
Notes and corrnnents on workshop session No. 2
what evidence, they were drawn. In short, the reader finds conclusions and recommendations drawn not predicated on facts or analysis
of the facts. In reading the reports and memoranda, the planning staff
has been constantly confronted by questions in his own mind of why,
how and for what reasons - the answers to .which are not forthcoming by
reading further.
(3) In general, Items 1 and 2 apparently have led to the conclusion
that many of the technical reports and memoranda could be applicable
to any City USA. Most often the reader is left unconvinced that
Atlanta is the City in question in each of the technical memoranda and
reports. There is a general failure on the part of the consultant
to relate what is being reported, discussed, concluded, or recommended
with the physical, social, economic and political environment of
Atlanta.
The staff has employed every known tactic to encourage and to literally
force improvement in the quality of their work.
But, we have not seen
any appreciable improvement which we would call satisfactory.
Flat statements, sweeping generalizations, techniques, approaches,
reconnnendations and assumptions made in today's meeting - all must be
challenged by the staff and the Planning and Development Committee.
The Program for Improvement Action being recommended by the consultant
is heavily weighted toward physical improvement.
This is probably the
strongest part of the Program and basically represents materials provided
the consultant by the Planning Department.
The Program is weak, shallow,
sketchy and in some respects not feasible on the social and fiscal facets.
We have not seen much of th? economic materials to date and thus cannot
comment.
Consequently, the Planning Staff along with the Planning and
De velopment Connni t tee should prod the consultant with the "Whys" , "Hows",
and "Wher es" until we ge t satisfactory a nswer s and an accep t able Pr ogram
for Improvement Action .
�Page 3
Notes and comments on workshop session No.2
Set forth below are some examples of questions.
These will give the
committee some idea as the types of questions that should be asked the
consultant:
PHYSICAL
--Shouldn't your recorrnnendations for renewal treatment cover the
entire City, particularly those areas to the extreme North and
Southwest which apparently have been omitted1
--What are the side effects 9n adjacent areas of renewal treatment in
any given area?
How is this overcome?
--Define types of treatment; which renewal actions should be public,
which private and in which areas?
--How did you determine priorities and how can we best make use of
this priority classification
system on a continuing basis?
--What is the value of your priority classification system to the
Planning and Development Committee and how will it help us in
making decisions for projects in various areas of the City?
--What are the alternatives of your priority classification system?
--What projections have been made on land needs ana resources for the
future development of the City?
What policy implications are involved?
--How have you treated Rapid Transit and Interstate Highway Locations
in this broad scale program?
Should these facilities be planned to
serve exi s t ing neighborhoods·, commercial and industrial areas or
should neighborhoods, commercial and industrial areas conform to the
physical locations
of the se facilities?
--What additional physical planning should the City become involved
in as a follow up to your broad .scale program?
--What is the reasoning of the consultant in determining the s cores
assigned for each staging area?
�Page 4
Notes and comments on workshop session No. 2
SOCIAL
--What and how have social factors entered into your broad scale program?
--What are Atlanta's socio/economic problems and how have you approached
them in this program?
--How do you go about getting citizen involvement in such a broad scale
program?
gram?
How will th e citizens of Atlanta benefit from such a pro-
How can we best convince them of the need fo r such a program
assuming we are in agreeme~t with it?
--How do social problems relate to physical problems and how can the
approach to both best be coordinated?
--What social costs, if any, are involved in such a large scale
program?
Are these social costs reflected in the overall program
costs and how are they to be financed?
ECONOMIC
--Are your land use recommendations . based on market factors, purely
suggestions for development, or a combination of these two?
--What ar e the most potential markets for Atlanta, (Scientific research
and other us e s for e xample) and how can Atlanta best accomodate them
wi t hin t he existing City boundar ies?
--Jobs , i ncr eas ing indivi dual i ncome , hous i ng and edu cation are the
. - .ii<.
City's mos t pr ess ing probl ems .
Wha t approa ches ar e you r ecorrnnendi ng
t owards re s olving thes e problems ?
--How can the City implement s uch a br oad s cale program with the
apparent housing shortage and fin ancial limitations which the
City currently has?
�Page 5
Notes and conunents on work shop session No. 2
--What is the relationship of the broad scale program to the City's
overall capital needs?
--What sources of revenu e (existing and potential) do you foresee
the City using in financing its program?
--What alternative methods of funding this program are available?
What, if any, financial limitations must the City overcome in
financing this program?
What changes in and what additional state
enabling legislation will be required?
GOVERNMENTAL
--How do you foresee the City managing and coordinating this
broad scale program?
Who should be responsible for administering
it and coordinating it?
--What staffing arrang ements will be required at the sector and/or
the staging area level?
What will the administrative costs be?
- - What, if any, other cities have tried this broad scale program
approach?
What administrative arrangements did they make ?
GENERAL
--What i s t he logic behind or why the need for a broad scale ur ban
renewal program i n At lanta?
-~
--How should the City go- about implement i ng such a br oad sca l e program?
--What policy determinations (phys i c a l , so ci a l & economic) should t he
Mayor and Board of Ald e rmen cons i der in light of the future development and redevelopment of the City?
�Page 6
Notes and comments on workshop session No.2
--In your opinion is the broad scale program practical and feasible?
--How does the City go about up-dating your broad scale program?
--What recommendations have you made for the City to carry forward
what you have done in each of the studies on a continuing basis?
--What are the consequences of undertaking such a large scale program
and what are the alternatives?
--Are the time periods being recommended, i.e., 1967-1970, 1971-1975,
1976-1983 realistic?
Do you expect the City to accomplish the
recommended actions of the first time period (1967-1970) on time?
Would it not be more realistic to revise these time periods to say
begin in 1970 instead of 1967?

I have turned to the Atlanta Area Community Council for support
on proposed site locations, as we would normally do with a request
from a civic agency.
The Planning Department is very interested in supporting Sheltering
Arms and other social oriented agencies in the selection of sites
to best serve this growing community. As you know, the Community
Council is responsible for the coordination of social planning
activities, thereby providing the City with one agency who knows
the goals and activities of all the community organizations. This
enables us to select sites which will allow the least chance of
service overlap. I will furnish you with site proposals just as soon
as possible.

MEMORANDU_
FROM:
Planning Staff
TO:
Mayor Ivan Allen, - Jr. and Alderman Rodney M. Cook
SUBJECT:
Background material on Equal Opportunity in Housing Study
.In securing the Federal Grant Funds for the undertaking of the Community
Improvement Program one of the conditions was the preparation of an Equal
Opportunity in Housing Study.
The following fedE;ral guidelines established
the scope and content of such~ study.
1.
"Survey and analysis of the existing patterns of residence of Negroes
and other minority groups in the community, including an appraisal
of the extent to which the pattern is the result of discrimination.
The survey and analysis shall include considerations of the quality
of housing and of related community facilities and services available to minority groups, in relation to the quality of housing and
related community facilities and services available in the conmrunity
at large."
·
2.
"Development of an affirmative program to expand the housing opportunities available to minority groups in t h e community, including
increases in the quantity and improvement in the quality of available housing, and to eliminate discriminatory barriers obstructing
open access to housing. The affirmative program shall include
consideration of how both federally assisted and other programs
of housing improvement can be used to attain these objectives."
Essentially the Equal Opportunity in Housing Report meets the federal guidelines
and requirements for such a study as a part of the COIIDnunity Improvement Program.
Our disagreement revolves around the following :
�-2~
. 1.
Conformity
for such a
Fleissig &
the report
to and interpretation of the requirements · of the contract
study executed between the City of Atlanta and Candeub,
Associates, dated May 6, 1965. The City questi9ns whether
meets sections lb, Ild{l) and 11(2) of the contract.
2.
Crediting the City for what has been done during the Allen Administration in the way of improving public services and facilities serving
Negro areas, and
3.
Reliance on the interview technique as a means of drawing conclusions
on public services and facilities without checking and testing the
validity of the information thus obtained prior to its incorporation
in the report.
Each of the above points are discussed below:
1.
Conformity to and interpretation of contract.
The Consultant appears to have met most of the requirements of the
contract with the following notable exceptions:
Section lb of the contract reads as follows:
"The Consultant shall determine the adequacy of connnunity facilities
and services in areas in which Negroes lives, (such as schools,
parks, playgrounds, public housing, libraries, streets, utilities,
sewers, and services from data supplied to the Consultant by the
Local Staff). Adequacy shall be determined by applying nationally
recognized standards of adequacy and service as modified by
established local standards and shall include appraisals of intensity of use, variety and scope of services provided, and public
attitude toward such facilities and services. For the latter
purpose, interviews with informed sources in the Negro COlillllunity
and in various appropriate professional associations will be
used to secure their reactions to the adequacy of these facilities.n
The phrase, "adequacy shall be determined by applying nationally
recognized standards of adequacy and service as modified by established
local standar ds ••• " was a problem for the reviewers.
.,
in the report that this was done?
What proof exists
This is not apparent in reading the
text of the report, its appendices or methodology.
Were comparable
statistics of cities of Atlanta's size available in so far as the
provision of public services and f acilities?
compare with these cities?
If so, how did Atlanta
�-3Section IId(l) of the contract reads as follows:
"The consultant shall: 1) Appraise factors which are conducive
to the establisli.ment of an atmosphere of equal opportunity and those
factors which create a negative atmosphere to the establishment of
equal opportunity through selective interviews of representative
neighborhood leadership, businessmen, realtors, and residents in
selected neighborhoods of contrasting ethnic and economic composition."
·
Where in the text or the appendices of the report does a treatment
of this exist?
Such a treatment would entail, we would think, an .
identification, appraisal, and findings of both positive and negative
factors related to an atmosphere for establishing equal opportunity in
housing.
According to Section IId(2) of the contract, the consultant
was to have made such findings.
This is extremely important and should
be the crux or basis of the program recommendations.
The tenor of
the program recommendations contained in Part II of the report,
essentially requires and demands the existance of a "favorable
environment".
If this interpretation is correct, the consultant
has apparently found some positive factors that exist which are
conducive to the establishment of an atmosphere of equal opportunity.
But , the reviewers could not find any discussion of such a "favorable
. environment.. or positive factors in the report.
Apparently, the sole
bas i s for t he program r econnnendations appear s in t he Introduction
to the r epor t.
It r eads as follows :
"Increas ing res i dent ial segr egation, dilapidation of non-white
rental units and accompanyi ng soci al pr oblems are h i ghly i mportant t o , but not pecul i ar t o At lant a . St a ti s tical fi ndings
coupled with intervi ew res ults i ndic ate that the City needs a
strong program in equal opportunity in h,;:ms ing ••• "
Section IIe(l) and (2) of the contra ct r e ad as follows:
"The Consultant shall develop specific recommendations based both
on experience in other cities and on the findings regarding
_ community attitudes. These .recommendations will pertain to:
�-4.,
.
1) general community attitudes and programs to deal with equal
opportunity in housing and to reduce or eliminate friction and
tension; 2) small area development and programs particularly
applicable for areas for renewal to deal with softening of attitudes
with respect to equal opportunity.
The key words in these three clauses of the contract are the
development of specific recommendations.
In reading the reconnnendations
contained in Section II there are few specific recommendations.
A
considerable number of the recommendations are extremely general,
vague and to some extent useless.
Examples of specif ic recommendations
are:
"The City support legislation at the federal and state levels to
prohibit discrimination in the sale or rental of housing on the
basis of race, creed or national origin. If action in this area
is not forthcoming at the federal or state l evel, it is r ecommended
that the city adopt local fair housing legislation."
"The City adopt an anti-"block-busting" ordinance which would make
it illegal to employ panic-inducing tactics to promote a rapid
turnover in housing occupancy."
"It is recommended tha t the Community Relations Commission be given
the responsibility and adequate staff and budget to carry out the
city's program for the achievement of equal opportunity in housing."
Examples of general, vague and to some extent useless recommendations
are:
"It is recommended that the city utilize federal assistance availabl e to ci t i es through the Department of Housing and Urban Development t o cover part of the cost of a c oncentrated code enf or cement
program in des ignated areas of the city . n
"It is recommended that t he city re-evaluate its housing code and
other codes t o make sur e t hat they pr ovi de adequa t e t ools for improving existing hous ing. "
"It is recommended that the city move, under the Federal Demonstration
Cities ;program to improve selected areas on a massive scale."
"It is recommended that all city departments examine their activities and levels of service to determine if they serve adequately
each residential area regardless of racial occupancy. Programs
to correct deficiencies and inequalities should be prepared and
implemented."
�-s"It is recommended that housing for mixed occupancy be encouraged
in outlying areas so that population shifts to the suburbs, if any,
will be racially balanced. 11
nit is recommended that the city prepare and implement a formal
program to more actively accomodate in-migrants."
2.
Crediting the City for what has been done.
The Report uses the statistical technique of comparing public
services and facilities serving Negro areas to those serving the
entire City.
Although this technique provides an absolute comparison,
it does create a false impression and a negative connotation that
nothing is or has been done to improve the situation found to exist.
This technique combines what has been done in the ancient past to
what has been or is being done in the immediate present with no
differentiation between the two.
Such a statistical technique makes
the current administration look exceedingly blameful, when in fact
the current administration has made great strides in these areas.
Public services and facilities have been improved and subsequent
administrations &iould be encouraged to follow its example.
Although,
the contract does not specifically require the consultant to provide
this credit to the City, it is deemed advisable and desirable in order
t o dispell t he f a lse image created.
To
il lus t rat e stat isti cal technique mentioned above t he following
discuss i on appear s i n t he appendices, (Section III , page 11), under
Parks and Recreati on. ,
.,
"Community parks in t he city contai ned a t ot al of 287 . 9 acr es .
Of this total 34.1 per cent ( 98 .2 acres) are l ocated in ar eas
in which Negroes live. Thi s indicates that 43.6 perc ent of the
population of the City of Atlanta has only 34.1 percent of the
parks space available in their neighborhoods. Another me thod
of stating thi s deficiency i s that there i s one acr e of community
park space available for every 1,753 peopl e in the city as a
whole but only one acre for every 2,240 persons in neighborhoods
in which Negroes live •
.
�-6..
-
The parks classified as neighborhood parks contain 216.2 acres
in the whole city of which 41.7 percent of 90.1 acres are located
in areas in which Negroes live. This category of park space comes
closest to providing space equivalent to population ratios.
Green spaces in the Negro residential areas are the mose inadequate of all three park categories analyzed. Of the total 88.3
acres in this category, only 10.3 percent (9.1 acres) are located
in Negro residential areas. To indicate this vast difference
another way, the city-wide average is one acre per 5,717 people
whereas in the Negro residential areas there is only one acre
per 24,296 people."
In the Summary of Interviews the following statements appear,
(Section III, pages 14 and 15):
"One interviewee _covered the entire range of responses relative
to parks recieved in all interviews in this brief statement:
'Park services are woefully inadequate. Fifteen years ago there
was only one (Negro) park for the whole city. The parks we have
now are poorly maintained. The programs that are given are pretty
good, but there's a need for more programmed recreation . The
city promised to build about seven parks in the last bond issue;
none were built'
These remarks were all repeated in one or more other interviews.
All indicated that Negroes thought conditions were better in
all- white neighborhoods."
This illustrates a damaging statement which was not verified or
substantiated , particularly when the facts of the last five years
or more are that :
1.
Presently there are a total of 13 playlots in the City .
Twe l ve of th ese are in Negro areas .
2.
Twenty- one playlot s ar e planned; 20 of these are for Negr o
area s .
3.
Since Sep tember, 1964, twenty~two ma jor park pr oj ec t s have
been initi ated. Ten of t he t went y-two are clear l y i n Negro
neighb orhood s with t he remai ning twelve categoriz ed as general s ervice type f aci l ities , such as t he Grant Park Chi l dren's Zoo .
4.
The City has purchas ed 14 new park sites in the las t 2 years;
7 of these ar e clearly in Negro neighborhoods.
In relation to schools, the Report recommends, (page 12) that :
�-7"The City take immediate steps to improve the educational programs
and facilities serving Negro residential areas and to bring them
up to the level of white areas."
Yet the facts indicate that within the last 5 years or more that:
1.
Eighteen schools have either been built, or have undergone
modernization and/or enlargement of facilities. The latter
would consist of new classrooms, gymnasiums, etc. These schools
primarily serve Negro areas.
2.
Seven schools are currently under construction which would
primarily serve Negro areas. If the new school at Grant Park
which will have a ratio of about 50% white and 50% Negro
were included this would br ing the total to eight.
The abov e are intended as examples only, but should serve to
give the consultant some idea of the type of credit that the City
is due.
3.
Reliance on Interview Technique
The use of interviews was made a part of the contract as a means
of securing local comments and criticisms of facilities and services
provided to Negro areas in the City.
As a part of this effort,
the consultant did invite CACUR to suggest the names of knowledgeable
individuals whom they might consider for inclusion in such interviews.
But, to our knowledge, the City has never seen and been provided the
whole and official list of those interviewed, what was asked, what
was s a id , or how the r esults may have been used by t he consul t ant
in t hi s report.
As the interview technique has been us ed in this r eport the f ollowing
observations are made:
1.
The names of the persons interviewed are not listed in the
Appendix.
2.
The Consultant apparently has taken verbatim the responses
which were derived in the course of the interviews as repre-
�-8senting absolute .factual information. Obviously, the results
of the interviews contained in the report represent slanted
and damaging statements which could have been heard in any
section of the City - White or Negro. Yet, nowhere did the
report attempt to verify the validity of the comments obtained
through the interview technique.
3.
The information generated by the interview technique has been
used in some instances as a basis for program recommendations
(as set forth in Part II of the text of the report). Since
no attempt was made to verify these comments, responses from
the interviews can be taken for no more than heresay information. Yet, it is this information which provides the basis
for some of the program recommendations.
It would have been more appropriate had the Consultant attempted
to extend the scope of his interviews to include responses, replies,
and/or reactions from the officials and agencies being criticized.
Such an expanded technique would have given a much broader and fairer
presentation of the two or more viewpoints, while at the same time
such a technique would not have precluded the Consultant from making
a judgement between which of the two or more viewpoints was more
factual.

Dear Earl:
I have re ceived a letter from Robert Weaver concerning the
Department of Housing and Urb an Deve lopment 's sponsorship of a
conference on the theme "Design in Urban Transportation". This
is to be held in Wa shington at the Statler Hilton Hotel on May
22 , 1967.
The conference is designed to inform government offi cials ,
architects, engineers and planners concerned with the development of
urban transportation in order to explore the important role that
transportation design plays, not only in shaping our cities, but in
making them more attractive places in which to live and work.
As you know, I have been very concerned about the lack of inv9lvement
of Atlanta government officials in transit planning so far . In that
Atlanta will be detailing its transit facilities between now and the
spring of 1968 and voting a bond issue to develop this system possibly in
the spring of 1969 , I feel that a tremendous amount of work is on top
of us no t - now five or ten years away.
For this reason, I feel that this conference could be very beneficial
to the Chairman of the Planning and Development Conunittee, Alderman Cook,
and myself. I have discussed this with Rodney and he feels as I do; he
can also make this time available.
I would like to request approval for the two of us to attend
this conference,

On December 22, the Zoning Committee sent forwa rd to the Boa rd
of Alde rmen a recommendation fo r approval as amended from C- 1 to A- 1. The
Board, howeve r , on a dv ice from the City Attorney, felt that the petition should
be reheard by the Zoning Committee fo r A- 1 Apa rtments .
The pe t it ion was reheard by the Zoning Committee on March 9, 1967,
bu t the pe t it ion was deferre d fo r further study a nd no a c t ion has been ta ken by
the Commi ttee .
Th e staff fe e ls that the z oni ng change is just ifi a b le fo r the follow in g
reasons:
1 . Access to the tract is from Simpson Ro ad - a major stree t.
2 . The tract is adjo ined to the west by the new high sch oo l site
fronting on Hightower Roa d; by Li ncoln Me moria l Ce me tery
on the west; and is across the stree t from the cemete ry and
a club to the north . A c ul de sac of singl e -fami ly homes
backs o n the tract from the south and a 25 1 wooded buffer
has been recommended fo r thei r protection .
It is the feeling of the staff that these su rroundi ng institutional
uses offer a great se nse of open space to the proposed developme nt while prote cting the qrea from future high density development .

location for housing to the Housing Resources Committee ,
4. Adequate utilities are availabl e to the site .

Jv'LEHORANDUM
TO:
Mayor Iva n Allen, J r .
FROM:
Collier Gl adin
SUBJECT: Mode l Citi es Propos al
It has occurred t o me that the Federal Government may announce the
awarding of a Model Ci ties Planning Grant to Atlanta during the
ea rly part o f June, with most offi ci als o f the City o f Atlanta, and
particularly the affected dep artmen t heads, knowing little, if any ,
of the deta ils of the c ity's Hodel Neighborhood prop o sal. Since the
whole earted and enthusiastic cooperation of many of the ci ty's
department heads wil l be required in co nducting this tremendous and
most complex program, I feel that a meeti ng o f department heads
should be called f o r the specific pu rp ose of explaining this program
to them, prior to it s b eing officially announced by Washing ton . I
feel that this meeting should be set f or Tuesday, May 22, or at least
no later than Tuesday, May 29 , and that you should convey to t he
departme nt heads the importance and magnitude of this program. The
Planning Department is willing to dev elop a slide presentation t o
help in explaining it to them .
Two other matters co ncerning our Mod e l Ci ties Program also deserve
attention. One is the possibility o f pro c eeding with the establishment
of the Model Neighborhood ·Exe cutive Board which, as you will remen.ber,
is the govern ing board for the Mode l -~ighb orhood Program and consists
of the Mayor , two aldermen , Chairman o f the Fulton County Coll'mission,
President of the Atlanta Board of Education, one rep res ent ative from
State Government , appointed by the Governor, and one representat ive
from the private sector, app oi nted by the other member s. I f e 1 ~h at
it would be wise t o have this Board functioning and apprised o f th e Mo d~ l
Neighborhood Program and its dutie s by the t i rne the announceme nt is
made of the grant . In addition , I feel that it is imperative t ha t
a Project Director be lined up by the time the grant is announced.

We have fsarned wi th gr eat i nterest that s ome thought i s boing
given to the construct ion of a permanent stage in P iedmont Park
to be use d by the annual Ar ts Festi vaJ, and vari ous pe rforming
gr oups i n Atl anta.
TI1e Atlanta Ci vi c Ballet ardently supports s~ch an endeavor, for
we are we ll aware of the l imited facilit i es available to all of
the performing arts in our communitya
A more expanded scheduls
of dance programs would be possiblG with s uch a faci lityi particularly in the aroa of special performances for young people.
For over 25 years the At lante Ci vic Ba l let has presented a special
series of Saturday afternoon matinees for elementary schoolchildren,
usi ng high school auditori ums; at an admission charge of on ly 60¢•
We feel ·that, in t his area alone, much could be accompl ishe_d wi t h
a facil ity which would ba avai la bl ~ to us at no cost, or for a vary
nominal fe e.
Arrangements for the use of high school auditor iums
are not a lwa ys easy to mako, and the time availabl e in them is
very lim ited.
Eve n with the construction of a new city auditori um, and the theater
a nd au ditori um in the Cultural Center, facilities wi II be extremoly
limited, and r ental charges would be out of the Guestion for performances of the type mentioned a bove. ~The Atlanta Civic Bal Jet feels
that it would be able to use to good advantage an add it ional perfor•

Dear Eric and Jack :
I write on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Greater
Atlanta Arts Council to urge the development of plans for the design
and construction of an outdoor performing facility in Piedmont Park.
The Council believe s that such a facility is sorely needed to meet a
multiplicity of community ne eds , s ome of which are as follows:
(1) Primary and secondary school musical (band, orchestra l and
choral) concerts
(2) Children's theatre and dance presentations
(3) Atlanta Art s Festival performing arts events
(4) Pol i t ical r allies
(5) Other community acti vi ties of interest which have access
t o no other stage f acility
(6) College productions by Atlanta area colleges.
Events which could be presented here would be very attractive to vast
number s of Atlanta citiz ens because of t he informal outdoor s etting .
This has been demonstrated by the event s presented for t he l ast dozen
years by Ar ts Fest i val productions.
The Council h opes t hat you may look fa vora bly ·on this request
and we would be most happy to assist in the promotion and development
of this project if you feel that it would be useful.
Cordia lly yours,
Perrin

For that reason we ur ge you to take this matter
under advisement in considering plans for a Park
Redevelopment.
If the City of Atlanta could locate a permanent
facility for the per f ormin g a'rts in Piedmont Park
a better quality of programs could be a ssured.
