RE: Adequate School Facilities-
Greenbriar area


Plans of the Atlanta Board of Education assure adequate school facilities

in this area to accommodate the developments of the Continental Development
Corporation. The site for the Continental Colony elementary school was in-
cluded in the original development plans of the corporation. and the Board
decided upon this site at the urging of the corporation. This site was

sold to the Board of Education at cost. The school is architecturally de-
signed to accommodate the addition of eight classrooms to the north without
interfering with the overall operation or design. This school was established
in this area to accommodate children living on the east side of the perimeter
highway. Approximately 50% of the present enrollment comes from the west
side of the perimeter highway, an area to be served by the new Ben Hill school
and a school to be located in the Brentwood sub-division, a site established
in the overall land plan of this sub-division.

It can be readily seen that the Atlanta Board of Education is cognizant of
the development in this area and appropriate plans have been developed to
assure the orderly construction of adequate school facilities to accommodate
the anticipated growth. The corporation has. always endeavored to advise the
school authorities of its plans in this area and they have acted accordingly.
Surveys of apartment complexes of similar character and complexion of the
ones we propose readily indicate an extremely small percentage of school age
