This memorandum contains a recommendation in paragraph 4 for your approval. 2. When the West Parking Lot was originally laid out, part of the area was earmarked as a heliport in the event we had need for one. We are now planning to install additional lights In the West Lot for the protection of ou employees who park there after dark, particularly in the winter months. "This lighting will be much "re effective and less expensive if poles can be erected in the parking area itself rather than only around the perimeter, this will eliminate the use of the lot as a heliport. ;PI 3. To date we have only used the lot for one test ell cpter la Ading and are informed that because of the nearby high tension electric line bringing power to the Headquarters Building the area would not be approved by the Federal Aviation Agency as an official heliport. 4. As noted on the attached memorandum from General Cabell, dated 5 December 1961, the Director questioned at that time the need for a hell- porrg In view of the expense that would be involved in relocating the power line, make the area acceptable to the FAA and the immediate need for im- pro#l lighting, we recommend that our plan for using the West Lot as a helirt be given up. If a heliport is required at some later date, we believe that gpother more suitable areea could be fwd for this purpose. 4 m w Attachment: Memo dtd 5 Dec 61 to Mr. McCone fr Glen.
