Attached is a copy of the summary recommendations of the President's
Commission on Civil Disorders.

It is imperative that the City of Atlanta not take this historic report
lightly. We must carefully review every recommendation and take

whatever action is necessary to improve and protect the lives of all
our citizens.

I am asking each of you to make a thorough analysis of the sections of
the report which fall within your area of operation. You are requested
to prepare a detailed course of action outlinjmg those steps you intend to
take on all recommendations which apply in the City of Atlanta.

Most of you were involved last year in the development and executivn
of a special program of coordination of city services during the
summer months. The results of that program were highly favorable.

It is imperative that we continue and expand the City Services
Program and discuss what specific actions we should take on
the Commission's report.

I am asking that you meet with me Tuesday, March 19, at 2:30 p.m.
in Committee Room 2, City Hall. At that time we will review what
actions are being taken to prevent civil disorders in Atlanta.

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
