MEMORANDUM
GENERAL MANAGER
TO:
Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
FROM:
Jack C. Delius, General Manager of Parks and Recreation
The only park project presently on the drawing boards involving
any location in the downtown area is the complete renovation and
redevelopment of Pershing Point Park, located where Peachtree and
West Peachtree merge out near Brookwood Station.
This is an
extremely prominent location consisting of .335 acres plus or
minus. We have received numerous requests from citizens and
members of the Board of Aldermen for the complete restoration
of this important location. The Graduate Landscape Architectural
School of the University of Georgia presently is working on a
design and suggestions for its redevelopment. As you perhaps know,
it contains a granite monument to soldiers of World War I.
I have discussed with our four landscape architects what their
plans are for this park and what they think the University of
Georgia will suggest. It is felt tha.t the park should contain
at least a fountain, properly lighted, with possibly a piece of
statuary, along with complete new shrubs, sidewalks, benches , etc.
The architects feel that f or somewhere in the neighborhood of
$50,000 an absolute, first-class job could be done on this l ocation.
We have another minor project at Peachtree and Fifteenth , which
involves the replacement of the inadequate and very antiquated
small fountain with a new modern system, again properly lighted .
Also, for downtown, we are developing our tree planting pro gram .
However, our first s ugge s tion is Per shing Point. We particularly
appreciate your interest.

. - - Dear Mrs. Moore:
It was certainly my pleasure meeting with you this
past Friday to discuss the selection of trees to be
used in the Downtown Beautification Program, along
with the problems associated with this project.
The success or failure of this vital project will
certainly depend in great measure to the level of
maintenance afforded these trees.
The undersigned
has felt all along that the Department of Parks had
___ the primary responsibility for maintaining the healthy
growth and appearance of any plant material located
on public sidewalk areas in.the downtown business
core. However, because of an extreme limitation in
budget and personnel, we have not been able to assume
responsibility in the past. We have sort of limped
along by requesting on an emergency basis a limited
amount of overtime to pay our people, etc.
As a
result, maintenance has not been systematic nor completely sufficient.
However, some months ago the City of Atlanta authorized
me to employ the second City Parks horticulturist and
the position has now been filled by Mr. Jan Bouwmans,
originally from Holland. We have in the last few months
been able to supply Mr. Bouwmans with a limited work
crew and we have a modest budget for shrubbery and
tree replacement throughout the City. Thus, it is my
feeling that the City of Atlanta is now in the positio_n
to do proper maintenance and upkeep on all the do wntown
trees, be that whether they are plantid in pot s or
placed in the giound. As an aside, we probably will
experience continuing difficulties with some of the
trees orig inally planted because they have become
"potb ound", e t c .
�Mrs. Ann Palmer Moore
February 12, 1969
Page 2
It appears that Mr. Alexander, our arborist, in
cooperation with Mr. John Mixon, the Atlanta Metro
Forester, have very carefully researched several
types of trees that should do well in the downtown
environment.
In ~~dition, Mr. Alexander has taken
·a long hard look at the type of container we should
use.
If we in fact stick to the recommended variety
of trees and use the proper container, and fill it
with a balanced mixture of good soil and moisture
retention material, I have every reason to think we
will have a successful tree program for the downtown
core.
In summary, the purpose of this letter is to state
that the Department of Parks will assume responsibility
for the maintenance and care of the trees located
in the downtown area.
We are particularly grateful to you for your many
fine services, and I am ·

Bill Finch is an old friend of mine whom I have known for
many years and for this reason I was delighted to know that
his firm has been retained by you to plan and make recommendations for the building to house the Cyclorama Battle Painting.
l
In this letter I have proposed and described the need for an
Orientation Room which will serve to prepare the visitor and
put his mind in a historic framework to better understand the
Painting when he sees it. With this background, the visitor
will riot think of the battle action on the Paintin~ consciously,
or sub-consciousl.Y,, as an isolated episode of the War Between _
the States, but rather as an integrated and dramatic development of Sherman's March to the Sea. The significance of this
battle can stand on its own feet, but when placed in a running
context of Sherman's Campaign, the visitor will have a far ·
better understanding and ~omprehension of it.
I am utterly delighted and pleased that steps are undertaken
to get the project started for a beautiful and efficient new
home for this rarest of Paintings.
If I can be of any help in an advisory capacity, I will be most
honored and pleased to serve.
Cordi ally,
WL,11.~

Re:

Before any co:nprehensive or intelligent plc.nning can be done, a Progr2...rn. must
be prepared. Horr:1:J.l l;f the Oimer prepares the Prozrat.i. T'nis is given to the Architect at the very start of the project and forms the basis for all future planning.
Since a Progr2.l7l. has not been prepared, we are in 2. position to help prepare this
Program.
The Progr21!1 should fully set forth but not be li'Tii ted to the follm-d.ng:
1.
All activities and functions to be carried out in building.
2.
Consideration of complete program for viewing of painting
to determine exact sequence of events and movement of
crowds.

Atmosphere and mood desired to be created in various areas,
4. Nature of 2.nd. list of a.1 1 items to be displayed in museum.
5. Circulation and functional r elationships.

Since this Program will be a joint effort between the O,mer and Archi tec ts, it

Dear Mr . Glover:
In further reference to your letter of May 7 and my
reply of May 9 , 1969 concerning an incident between
you and the golf star ter a t Pi edm:mt Golf Course on
May 6, I wish to advise you that the following infer~
rnation has been sUbrnitted by the Assistant General
Manager of P rks .
The golf starter states that he advised you at least
three, and probably four , times not to disturib the
balls in the ball rack and explained to you that it was
impossible to keep them strai ght if the general public
confused the arrangement, etc . According to the
starter, you did not remove just one bill, but seven
or eight, and then both you and the starter became
confus don which ball was first. Further , the golf
starter states that after you had i nor d his request
not to bother th ball rack thr e or four times th t
he became very angry and did, in fact , us the language
st t din your compl int.
While I can cert inly in no ·way defend the foul l ngu ge
used by the •starter in your presence , I must defend
his position in his having advised you th t th gen ral
public could not have access to the ball r ck in th t
it would r ult in confusion ov r who
ball was first ,
etc.
Thank you again for your p tron g , I am
Cordi lly,
Jack

Jack, the attached instance was reported to me
and I discussed it with Pete Cole and the
starter at Piedmont Park. The information from
the starter, as usual, was different from the
complaint by Mr. Glover.
According to our
starter, he advised Mr. Glover three or four
times to not disturb balls in ball rack that it was impossible for him to keep them
straight.
According to the starter Mr. Glover
did not remove just one ball but he removed
7 or 8 and they became contused on whose ball
was first.
Finally, after Mr. Glover ignored
the starter's request of 3 or 4 times, to stop
removing balls from rack, starter admitted that
he became very angry and used the language
Mr. Glover : quoted in his complaint.

Dear Mr. Glover:
Thank you very much for your letter of May 7, 1969
advising me that a golf star ter at Piedmont Golf
Course cursed you on May 6, 1969 for moving a ball
in the rack so you could read what number was up
next.
I am immediately submitting your letter to Mr . Pierce
Whitley, Assistant General Hanager of Farks, for
investigation.
I will not, and do not, permit profanity on the part
of o ur.employees toward the citi zens of this City.
However , we have had constant problems with variou s
golfers atte mpting to move up their ball in the rack
at Piedmont Park, a nd I can well imagine on some
occasions there might be excessive frustation on the
p art o f the starter.
Thank you again for calling this matter to rcy
attention, and I am

This acknowledges your letter concerning the Adamsville Health

I enclose a copy of the appraisal made by John W. Dabney, M.A.I.
The City has no interest in the land in question as it was
committed by covenant to the State and Federal governments as
a health center. It was bought with County Health Center money
·. and the funds resulting from the sale will be returned to that
source and available for health purposes.

Re: Adamsville Health Center
Dear Mr. Delius:
The Health Department informs me that the above building has
been the subject of severe vandalism. A fire was built in the
property over the weekend and only prompt action by the Fire
Department prevented a loss.
It would be advisable for the City to make a decision in the
mat.t er as soon as possible, if the improvements on the building
are to be preserved.
I think I informed you that we have a
very attractive offer insofar as the price is ·concerned. However,
the terms of payment are extended.

Dear Earl:
This acknowledges your letter of June 17. I do not wish to
commit the County to accept half of the appraised value of the
Adamsville Health Center.
This should be worked out as all of
us want the City to have the property.
The County Commission authorized you and the City to make such
inspection, appraisal, and other uses of the property as you
deem necessary. We should keep in mind that the property
should b e protected at all times against vandalism, and I am
sure the City will cooperate.
With kindest personal regards, I am

instructed them that if necessary, he should leave home earlier
because of the convention of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Upon talking with Mr. Monroe, it is his thought that we are not
having adequate participation to warrant running the bus.
Mr. Monroe says that Miss Carmichael had made him promise
not _t 9 cancel the transportation until she returned from her
vacation. He would rather wait until he hears from her, and
I will give her this information upon her return on Monday.
Mr. Monroe also informed me that our driver received a ticket

Dear Mayor Allen:
The Atlanta Jay cees plan to sponsor and conduct a "political rally "
October 3, 1969 between 12:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. in Plaza Park for all
candidates for mayor, vice mayor and alderman. While we seek participation in this event of the vice mayor candidate(s) and aldermanic candidates,
the principal emphasis will be for those officially announced candidates
that would like very much to b e yo ur successor in office.
This event will be promoted as the last chance to publicly speak with
the mayoralty candidates and ask them questions. It will primarily be a
question and answer forum. Also, we plan to promote the importance to
the Atlanta Area of this election with particular accentuation of the individual's responsibility to his city government.
We, in the Atla nta Jaycees, are acutely aware of our civic responsibility and want to work actively towards improving the social and
governmen tal environment in which we live. We seek constructive involvement in the affairs of government an d through this "politica l rally" we
hope to stress the importance of this years mayor's race. By exposing
the general public to the candidates we feel as if we will be serving
our city by encouraging more citizens to vote, and hopefully for the candidate that can best serve Atlanta, as you have so ably done during the
past eight years Mayor Al l en.
I am chairman of the Jaycee's Political Rally Committee, and responsible for the "rally" I have been discussing . I would like very
much to have the opportunity to discuss with you at your convenience
this affair for the mayoralty election, and also a governmental liason
effort that our Governmental Affairs Committee is in the process of organizing . Your thoughts and ideas would be very valuable to us May or
Allen, and we solicit them .

RE:
Proposed Play l ots
Dear George:
In my r ece nt lett er to you I was somewhat concerned as to
the possible land acquisition costs for three playlot sites .
In the past few days I have unc overed two pieces of property
that could very well be developed into usefu l and attractive
playlots. One is a property already dedicated to the Parks
Department in the West End Urban Renewal area locat ed at White
Street and Rose Circle . The other is located in the Lincoln
Homes area which would be dedicated to th e City if d e v e lopment wa s ass ured . Thus, no l and costs wo uld b e involved, a nd
if spare funds were left over after development, maybe a less
expe n s ive p r operty could be boug ht s uch a s the Peoples Street
property, tentat ively appra i sed at $6,000.00.
We h ave a lready
received requests to develop the first two as they would serve
heavily populated ne i ghb orhoo d s .
As I previously mentioned , we would endeavor to d es i g n and
cons truct the play l ots to serve as models for a future citywide playlot construction program, including s uch i tems as
landscaping, hard s urface courts, li g hting, as wel l as protective walls or low f encin g where p lay l ots abut streets.
We are real ly anxi o u s to design and build some playlots wh e r e
we are not hamstrung for lac k of f und s.
May I hav e yo ur opi ni on con cerning the above.

Dear George:
Miss Jimmie Mims, Recreation Division, has furnished a list of
eight playlot sites that would be suitable for permanent development.
These sites were selected from the standpoint of good past
participation as well as potential attractiveness and ease of
development.
I have visited all of the sites and selected what I considered
the bes t four. The four sites were then referred to the Land
Agent for a rough cost appraisal which amounts to a total of
$69,000.00 (The Angier and Parkway site had to be discarded as
it is in an urban renewal area.)
It would appear to me that the above pos sib l e cost for land
acquisition doesn't leave enough for development costs and I
would pre fer to keep exp loring for sui table sites that might be
bought for a lower price.
Our design criteria would be to incorporate modern, colorful
play e quipme nt that would invite heavy participation by the
childre n.
George, please advise about the land purchases.
Sincere ly ,

I am sorry to keep piling priorities on you, but this is

approached by a donor interest ed in g i v in g the City
$100 , 000 . 00 . After wading through all the re commendat ions that we have made and the iQJ. imination of Conally

Berry would like for us to select thre e o~ four playlots,
det ermi ne approximately what it would cost us to buy
them, and then figure up as quitkl~ as po ssib l e some
type of deve lopment, not as elaborate as the Astra-turf
play gro unds in Savanna h.
You should check wit h Miss
Mims as to the recommendations on the thr ee or four
playlots to be selected, b e in g sure that none of them
a ~e in Model Cities. You should go to the Land Agent
and get a rough appraisal on the v a lue of the , lots as
soon as possible. You should get your staff together
and make rec ommendat ions as to how the se playlots should
be permanently improve d.
Finally, remember that the total bud~et for a0qui~j.tion

Attent~on:
Mr. Jack Delius
General M3.nager of Parks
Dear M3.yor Allen:
Over the period of the past year, we have had numerous meetings with
representatives of the City of Atlanta in an attempt to utilize several
areas adjacent to the above numbered project as joint development areas.
The intent was f or the City of Atlanta t o acquire the remainder of
designated parcels of property and develop mini-parks or utilize the
property as additions to now existing parks. The purpose of the plan
was to better tie the freeway into the existing neighborhoods.
The original idea ran into financial problems and could not be advanced,
however, we feel the idea is sound and should be undertaken. After
investigating the situation, we now find it possible for the State and
Federal governments to acquire these parcels as whole takes and actually
provide the landscaping of the designated areas as part of the project.
The only obligation of the City of Atlanta would be the maintenance of
t hese ar eas . To formalize the responsibi litie s in implementing this
plan, a f ormal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the maint enance of these areas will be required.
Attached is one (1) set of prints outlining three (3) areas where joint
devel opment i s proposed and they are as follows :
1.
Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway between Virginia
Avenue and Cr estridge Drive.
2.
Area ea st of f r eeway r i ght - of-way and Gr eenland Dr ive bounded by
Courtney Drive on south and Hillpi ne Drive on the north •.
3. Area west of freeway right -of:-way between intersection of Courtney
Drive and San Antonio Drive . _.
�Pae;e THO
October 30, 1969 /'
At present, no landscapinG plans pave been developed on these areas.
'I'his will be done alon15 with the construction plans for the project and
will be coordinated with your office.
Tnere rray" be other areas available for joint development, however, the
location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans~
If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will
coordinate the develupme nt of these areas with your department.
If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint
development plan, please furnish this office with a statement of intent
to maintain these areas at your earliest convenience.
Revised right-of-way plans, which include the provision for th ese joint
development areas have been submitted to the· Bureau of Public Roads for
appr oval.
Your prompt reply to this request will be appreciated and will help
maint ain the overall schedule for· completion of the project as presented
at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing.
Yours very truly ,

I apologize for the delay in answering your request.
It was necessary to have our Parks Engineering staff

Also, we approve the selection of
prop erties to be included initially.
Our department

plans and we would sugges t tree planting designed for

I have draft ed a reply to Mr . Lewis Parker for your

Attention :
Mr . J a ck Delius
General ~nnager o f Parks
Dear Yayor Allen:
Over the period of the past y ear , we have had numerous meetings with
representat ives of the City of Atlanta in an attempt to utilize several
area s adjacent to the above numbered project as joint development areas .
The intent was for the City of Atlanta to acquire the r ern.ai nder of
designated parcels of property and develop mini-parks or utilize the
property as additions to nrn·r exi sti ng parks. The purpose of the plan
was to bett er tie the f reeway i nto the existing neighborhoods .
·
The origi nal idea ran into fina ncial problems and ·couJ_d not be e,dvanc ed ,
however, we feel t he idea is sound and should be u..riderte.ken . After
investigating the sit uation , we now find it possible fo1~ the State and
Federal governments to a cquire these parcels as whole t akes and actually
provide the l andscapi ng of the designated areas as part of the project.
The only obligat ion of the City of Atlanta would be the rrai ntenance of
these areas. To forrn.alize the respons i bilities i n :Lnwl ementing this
plan , a forJ:11.al agreement from the City of Atlanta to undert ake the maintenance of these a1·eas will be required.
Attached is one (1) set of pri nts outliniri.g three (3) areas where joint
development . is proposed and they are as follows:
1.
Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway bet\'reen . Virginia
Avenue and Crestridge Drive.
2.
Area east of freeway right-of-way and Greenland Drive bounded by
Courtney Drive on south and Hillpine Drive on the north.
3. Area west of freeway right-of-way between intersection of Courtney
Drive and San Antonio Drive.
�Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Page Ti·TO
October 30, 1969
At present, no landscaping plans have been developed on these a,reas.
This will be done along with the construction plans for the project and
will be coordinated with your office.
Ther-e rr,ay be other areas available for joint development, however, the
location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans.
If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will
coordinate the de,velopment of these areas with your department.
If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint
development plan, plea se fu:cnish this office with a statement of intent
to maintain these area s at your earliest convenience.
Revised right--of-w-ay plans, which include the provision for these joint
development area s have been submitted to the Bureau of Public Roads for
approval .
Your prompt reply to this request will be apprecia,ted and will help
maintain the overa,11 schedule for completion of tre project a,s pre sented
at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing .

�many groups had r e qu es t e d u se of the building but even i f Municip a l
Theater vacates th e building , it was not l i ke ly tha t any of th es e
r equ e sts would b e g rant e d since the City has n eed of the building .
Mr . Can tr e ll was ~hanked for appea ri ng ' for e th e Committee and told
he would b e advised if the situation c:; .ged .
Ne x t to appear b e fore the Committ ee was Mr . Carl Fl i nt , of 1346
Peach Val l ey Road , Atlanta , Georgia .
It was explained tha t h e had
writte n to Alderman Left wich concerning t wenty to forty acres in
front of his home . Mr . De lius mentioned that this acreage was
actually Pan iel Johnson Pa rk . Mr . Flint explained that h e had written
in regard to keeping a hors e on th e l an d and that th e r e were very
few children of "p ark age 11 in the vicinity.
He a l so stated that
th e re was a sewer probl em on th e ac r eage , tha t h e had. 11b een kill i ng
larvae and skimmers .... " Ald e rman Millican said we would have to
check the sewage problP~ · Chairman Leftwich suggested that Alderman
Mil l ican go by and ch, _ i t and tha t he would a lso go by and look
at it . · Mr . Brindley told the Committ ee tha t h e believed this l a nd
consist e d of e i ght to t we lv e acres but that th e boundaries were
vag u e - tha t a t O!1e time th e former Parks Manager , Mr . Simons, h a d
tried to find th s bounda ri es .
Chairman Lef t wich stated that h e would
like for the Ge~e r a l Manager to check th e deed and tha t we should
try to fin d ju ~ c whe r e th s prop e rty lines ar e and look i n to r eopeni pg
th e d eve lop ment of thi s park . He a l so told Mr . Flint tha t th e Park
mi g ht b e r es trict e d to park u se . Mr . Flint was thanke d for coming
to the mee ting.
At thi s time , Mr . 1~e lius introc. ·r~ed Mr . Edwin Vaughn, new Office
Manager for the Pa r ks Depa ~tment, to th e Committ ee , who wished
him g ood luck in his ne w ~ob .
Th e General Manager i nformed t he Commi tt ee tha t th e Showmob il e will
be put to a new use for the public as a vo ti ng booth in an a r ea known
as John son Est a t es .
Mr. Delius told th e Con~vriitt ee t ha t a citizen, Mr . J. M. Ford, III,
h ad complained s omet l ~~ ago about an inc id ent a t th e Bobby Jones
Golf Cours e , and tha t it had be en di sc ussed with th e Committe e before.
However, Alderman Cook wan t e d mo L·c ~2ta i l s on th e i nc id en t and s o
th e General Manager had aske ~ ~he Golf Pro, Mr . Davey, th e For eman,
Mr . England , and any other employees they thought necessary, to attend
to day's meeting i n order to discuss the incident . According to our
information, Mr. De l ius explained, this c iti z en was apparent l y told
that h e could not l et hi s fiv e - year -old son accompany him on th e
cour se, but l ater said he was advised if h e would r en t an e l ec tri c
golf cart that permission could be granted.
The citizen was indignant
sinc e he felt t hat it woul d b e as dang e rous for his son to acc omp any
him in a c art as it would b e otherwise.
Bo th Messrs . Davey and England
reit e r a t ed wha t they had said in October (when t he matter was first
d i s cus se d), that they knew nothing whatsoever about th e incid e nt.
Howe ve r, th e Go lf Starter, who had come to th e me e ting, stated that
· he might hav e said something tha t was mi sunders tood.
He said that
h e had told a ci ti zen (who h ad b een a c c o mp an i e d by a child) t hat he
had heard of another golf course near f.Iar j_e tt a where a.pparently
childr en could accon~any adults on t~e course . He explain e d that
he understood this was a semi -pri vate c ourse.
Alder1nan Millican
stated that if anyone h ad t alke d rudely to the man or if anyo ne t h ough t
-

�this had happened, that we write a l etter of apology . However, the
Committee reaffirmed its position on the regulations prohibiting
non-players on the go lf course .
It was mentioned that i n the past
there had been many citizens who followed golfers, placing bets,
etc.
Th1e fact that non-players also crowd the course, slowing down
the game, as 0e ll as the element of danger in being hit with a
golf ball, was discussed . The Committee Members asked Mr . Davey,
the Golf Pro, if th ese regulations regarding non - players were posted
in a promine nit place in the clubhouse and Mr . Davey replied that
t hey were.
He also stated that many times a golfer will make all
arrangements to play and that th e children who accompany them will
not appear until the golfer is ready to te e off, apparently having
been kept in the golfer's automobile until he is ready to play.
Apparently, thi s has been a problem for the employees at th e golf
courses who wish to carry out the rules without offending any
citizens.
It was decided that , if a citizen had been offended,
a letter should be written to him apologizing for any rudeness,
but that th e regulations be adhered to.
Committee thanked Messrs .
Davey and England for coming to the meeting .
Mr . Delius told the Committee he would like permission to request
a resolution authorizing s ic k leave amounting to ten days over and
above acc ui:nul ated sick time in the instance of two Parks employees :
Mr . Roger 0 . Stroup e , Position Number 282, Equipme nt Op e rator I,
and Mr . Cooper Landers, Position Number L~7 9, Equipment Opera tor I.
He explained that theyhad b e en faithful emp loye es in the Parks
Department and each had experienced a siege of sickness that had
used all their sick leave .
Committee granted r e quest .
The General Manager told the Committ ee that $6,000 .00 additional
fund s were ne e ded to solve the h ea ting problem in the Reptile
House and that Mr. Fred Shepherd , Bui ldi ng Inspector , had concurred
in this.
Committee authorized request.
Dale Creek Park was discussed and the fact that there were very few
records on it. Committee authorized a resolution for the City Attorney
to hav e a titl e report made on this prop e rty fronting on the north easterly side of Dale Creek Drive between Fores t Ridge Drive and
Collier Ridge Drive in order to determine the property lines.
The General Manager told the Committee that the recr ea tion programs
the Parks and Recreat ion Depar t men t had attempted to hav e in the
Morningside School area had apparently conflicted with the wishes
of resid ent s, including the principal, and that we had b een told
th ese citizens didn't wan t such activities as dance s , e tc., which
would bring about "boy/girl relationships at such an early age,"
and that after reviewing th e complaints with the Recreation staff,
had moved the program to Garden Hills where we do hav e a building.
It was though t that if th e commun ity should change it s opinion, a
mee ting could be held with all parties involv ed to work out some type
of suitab l e program.

�The Adamsville Health Center was discussed briefly.
It was suggested
that the ' General 'Manage r mi ght write to the County officials, telling
them "the twe nty years is up and the City could use the bui lding 11 •

The General Manager told the Committee he was very pleased with the
new City Arborist, Mr . C. M. Alexand er , and that the Arbori st seems
to be v~ry t actful in approaching citizens and yet is protective
of the trees as well . He stated that we now have the capac i ty to
maintafn tre es that are planted for downtown beautification and would
like to write to the Women ' s Chamber of Commerce regarding thi s .
Committ ee was agreeab l e .
Committee again · discussed the building erected at Chastain Memorial
Park by Municipa l Theater .
The General Manage r was asked to determine
the exact amount of indebtedness owed on the building by Muni cipal
Theater - the original amount of the debt and how much has been paid .
The Aldermen agreed that since Mr . Manos had exp r essed a strong wi sh
to stay and pay off this d e bt, that this would probably be ihe right
thing to do . But the y vo ic ed very strong opinions to the effect
that if Municipal Thea ter were a llowed to stay on in the building ,
a definite time limit should be set on when th ey would liquidate this
indebt e dness .
They felt this should b e one of the conditions - that
p erhaps a time limit of no more than five y ears b e stipulated . Mr .
De lius informe d the Committee that in the meantime , the City Attorney
had g iven th e Department of Pa rks in structions not to a llow anyone
to do anything at all to the building , even to drive a nail, until
this i s settled .
Mr. De lius mentione d an article that should b e frame d and put in
the n ew Cyclorama Museum . He explain e d that thi s is an untitl ed
pi e ce of po e try written during the Civil War on the back of a Confederate bill .
It was suggested that it be sealed with a water
proof plastic or finish by perhaps the Perma - Seal Plaque Company
to pres erve it.
Committee agree d .
The Committee we nt into Exe cutive Session and the golf comp e tition
was di s cus sed .
Commi tt ee agree d to waive the greens fe es for th e

Mr . De lius told the Committ ee that Mr .
Gene Hay had r e turned a check in the amount of $277,63 made payable
to the City of Atlanta , which r epre se nted a refund from the grant
of $800 . 00 mad e by the Citizens Park Advisory Committ ee for th e

Definition of Needs
Wesley Centers for many years have offered some supplementary recreational
services in each of its neighborhoods in order to meet more individualized
,needs. In assessing our services over a period of two years, we find that
the needs in each of our neighbor hoods have increased, The resulting verbal
. --· demands for additional recreational services are surpassing our ability ·to
meet them; since our primar y unit of se rvice is to the s mall club group, and
our staff's orientation and training is rarely, if ever, in the field of
recreation.
We feel that reacreational service s are needed and that we ca n and should ·
help, but realistically we cannot do it alone and continue to do justice
to our other program needs.
Program Plan
Purpose: To improve and expand the recreational services in each of the
service areas (Price Service Area, Capit ol Home s Area, and Mechanicsville)
1 •. To offer more opportunities for pa rticipation through a variety of

of the units; and assume some responsibility for the evaluation of
service s a nd worker pe rfo nnance.
4. Progr e.m planning with staff in hannony with the philosophy and
policie s of both Wesle y Centers a nd City Re creation .
5, Act as the agency in se ttling disputes which a re a gency relat ed .
6. Insur e t hat a ny pe rson who comes can be se rved i n harmony with the
-1lopen door" policy of City Recreation.
7 , Assure tha t t he staff's di r ect obligations to City Recreation a r e

Mayor of At l anta
Mr. J ack c. De l i us,
General Manager of Parks
Gentlemen:
Pursuant t o a request of Mr. Jack C. Del ius, General Manager of Parks and
Recreation, I have made inquiry with res pect t o the status of a prop building
which was used by Municipal Theatre, Inc. during the summer theater seasons
1965 through 1967 at Chastain Municipa l Amphitheater. You will recall that
Municipal Theatre used the facilities of Chastain Memorial Amphitheater free
and their only monitary obligation, if it could even be called this, was to
place a prop building at the rear of the Theater and turn the prop building
over to the City of Atlanta at the expiration of the lease or any extensions
thereof.
As of this date, Municipal Theatre is still using the prop building, although
the leas e has expired. It was with respect to this facet of the situation that
Mr. Delius requested me to direct my inquiry. I contacted c ounsel for the now
defunct Municipal Theatre, Inc. who had a gentleman by the name of Mr. Roland
B. Anderton conta ct me. Mr. Anderton told me over the telephone that he
represented the successor gr oup to Municipal Theatre, Inc. The following
constitutes a substance of my telephone conversation with Mr. Anderton: After
Mr. Anderton set forth who he was, he to ld me that he did r epresent the
succ essor group to Municipal Theatre, Inc. He told me that Mr. Dillard
Munford had a meeting with Mayor Allen and Mr. Milton Farris, Chairman of the
Finance Committee, with respect to the successor group. Various financial
arrangements were discussed with Mayor Allen and Mr. Farris to determine what
could be done to have good theater in Atlanta this summer at the Civic Center.
An arrangement was entered into with the City, with Mayor Allen and Mr. Farris
acting as the City's repres entatives, whereby the Civic Center would be used
this sunnner on what would in all probability be a reduced rate, said rate being
predicated upon the proceeds of the successor group. Mr. Anderton went on to
tell me two things that I feel are especially remarkable with respect to the
situation concerning the prop building. The first was that if we take action
�Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mr. Jack C. Delius
Page 2
April 9, 1969
to deny them use of the prop building, there would, in all probability, be
no theater in the Civic Center for the summer season 1969. Second, he also
told me that somewhere floating around in the back of his mind was a side
agreement which I assume would modify the lease agreement above set forth
whereby the City had given an additional ten year's use on the prop building.
The above constitutes what I feel is remarkable with respect to the conversation I had with Mr. Anderton. I certainly do not purport to be able to bind
the City in any respect and the primary purpose of this is, I assure you, for
information purposes and also to request of you two gentlemen such direction
to me as may be proper under the circumstances with respect to a disposition
concerning the prop building.
Should either of you have any questions with respect to the situation, please
feel free to call upon me.
Incidentally, Mr. Anderton asked for a copy of the original lease agreement
between Municipal Theatre, Inc. and the City of Atlanta and! forwarded the
same to him by transmittal of this date • .
With my kindest regards to you both, I am
