PERSONAL P

Mr. X. L. Pellioer,
St. Augustine National Bank,
St. Augustine, Florida.

Dear Xs

We talked yesterday about getting something started on
restoration in St. Augustine. Just to put something down in
writing, I an suggesting a program something like this

1.) Use $15,000, of the $45,000 state allotment,
to make repairs to the Llaibias House, Library,
and Spanish Treasury. $5,000 for each building.

2.) Secure legislative approval in the next legis-
lature for a revision of the restoration aot
which will permit use of this fund for planning
and land acquisition. (The bill at present, as
I understand it, limits expenditure of the
$45,000 to restoration work.)

3.) when legislative authority has been enacted,
set aside say, $20,000, of this amount for
the development of the best possible plan
for historic St. Augustine. Secure a na-
tionally-known planner, such as Harland
Bartholomew of St. Louis, A. D. Taylor of
Cleveland, or an organization having the
broad experience to produce a real solution
to the St. Augustine problem, which is of
national significance. Such a plan should
consist of a general analysis of the entire
city, with specific studies in considerable














detail of the area within the fortified lines.
The plan should include the details of restora-
tion, as well as utilities, traffic, parks and
plantings, zoning, eto.; so as to define ob-
jectives clearly and record the specifications
for doing the job right. An analysis of the
Carnegie and other studies oould be done under
this same state allotment as a prerequisite of
planning.

4.) On the basis of this plan, a definite estimate
could be oaloulated and Federal, State and
local funds raised for the project.
