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.

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

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
