We Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. { Mayor of the City of Atlanta an Dear Mayor Allen: The best current estimate of the initiation of execution activities in the Bedford-Pine Urban Redevelopment Project is approximately Novem- ber 1, 1967. Your letter of January 2) calls our attention to the problems which have been experienced in the Boulevard area between Forrest Avenue and North Avenue. Because of the length of time before execution activities can begin, we agree that it would be helpful to initiate strict housing code enforcement along both sides of Boulevard from Forrest Avenue all the way to Ponce de Leon. Such action would be in keeping with the Urban Redevelopment Plan for the area. Since some structures fronting on Boulevard are in such condition as to be uneconomical to rehabilitate or constitute non-conforming land uses, our staff should consult with the Housing Code Enforcements staff in order to avoid requiring owners to demolish structures which the Plan will propose for acquisition. It should be clearly understood that owners of structures in the Bedford-Pine Project area will not be eligible for the special forms of Federal assistance until a loan and grant contract has been executed. These special forms of assistance are Section 312 low-interest rate loans and Section 220 FHA insured rehabilitation loans. It is ovr hope that housing code enforcement action will be in- strumental in alleviating some of the more serious problems in this area. Very truly yours, “yy LJ / Oy DL ype ha M. B. Satterfield / Executive Director’

  • Text: ee February 1, 1967 Mr. C. O. Emmerich Administrator Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. 101 Marietta Street, N. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Charlie: Attached is a copy of a memorandum to Mr. William Wofford, Building Official, Mr. Wofford informs me that initiation of Housing Code enforcement will begin today. We realize that such comprehensive enforcement of the Code will produce some problems for many of the residents who might be forced to relocate should it be necessary to order the demolition of structures which are so deteriorated that they cannot be brought up to Code standards. The emergency housing assistance program conducted by EOA and the Atlanta Housing Authority the last four months in 1966 provided much needed help to more than 140 families who were forced to relocate because of eviction by landlords or as a result of Code enforcement. I hope that EOA will be able to provide the same service to residents of the Boulevard area, Mr. Johnny Robinson, Community Development Coordinator of my office, has been in contact with your East Central EOA staff and also with the Beflford-Pine Urban Renewal Project office. He will be available to assist your people in seeing that the needs of the families in this area are met. ? TE 7 oe See Mr. Emmerich Page Two February 1, 1967 We will appreciate anything you might be able to do along these lines. Sincerely yours, | Ivan Allen, Jr. | Mayor IlAdr:fy Enclosure (1)

  • Text: January 24, 1967 Mr. M. B. Satterfield Executive Director Atlanta Housing Authority 824 Hurt Building Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Satterfield: As you recall, last September we experienced serious disorders along Boulevard between Forrest Avenue and North Avenue. The people participating in these disorders and other Boulevard citizens who were not directly involved pointed to dilapidated and unsanitary housing conditions, over-crowding and high rents as among the most serious problems which helped to create the conditions which generated the disturbances. The City is anxious to proceed with a comprehensive Housing Code Compliance program along this street. We feel that through intensive enforcement of our housing codes we can make a substantial impact on the improvement of living conditions in this area. Since Boulevard falls within the proposed Bedford+Pine Urban Redevelopment Project we are anxious not to institute any programs contrary to the urban redevelopment plan for the area. Would strict enforcement of the housing code along both sides of Boulevard between Forrest Avenue and North Avenue or Ponce de Leon be in conflict with the urban redevelopment plan for rehabilitation of structures in this area? Sincerely yours, ‘ Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor ac i i a I oo = ee m SR et

Las has written to the powers in HUD attempting to get a letter of consent on the project and a policy ruling which would allow the Loan and Grant Program to be in effect prior to initiation of execution of the project under the letter of consent, We don't think this has ever been done before but if we are successful in getting this authority and establishment of eligibility, we will be able to lick one of the main problems which will constantly arise in an area such as this where we try to do Code Enforcement in a planned Urban Renewal area.

EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant MRS. ANN M. MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. William R. Wofford fa From: Ivan Allen, Jr. Subject: Housing Code Enforcement - Boulevard As you recall, last September the shooting of two Negro youths by a white man on Boulevard touched off several days of serious disorders in that area from Forrest Avenue to Ponce de Leon Avenue. : Although the disorders were projected by the shooting incident, : conditions in the area were such that the possibility of such an explosion occurring had been present for some time. The main problems pointed out by residents of the area were primarily centered around housing conditions including over- crowdedness, high rents, roaches and rats, and other sanitation factors, Since the September incident we have made some progress toward better garbage and trash collection, enforcement of health measures, and elimination of major criticisms in the area of traffic safety. There has also been much planning in the area of providing for recreational programs. However, the major problem still existing is one which can only be solved by strict enforcement of the Housing Code. Therefore, Mr. Wofford Page Two January 30, 1967 I am requesting that your department immediately initiate compre- hensive Housing Code-inspections along both sides of Boulevard from Forrest Avenue to Ponce de Leon and that property owners by. required to comply with the City's codes. You may be assured of full cooperation of my office, the Housing Authority, EOA and other agencies concerned with elimination of unfit housing conditions and relocation of residents into standard dwellings. Please inform me as to how soon you can initiate inspections along this street and the anticipated length of time which will be required to complete such code enforcement, IAJSr:fy

Mr. Wofford informs me that initiation of Housing Code enforcement will begin today. We realize that such comprehensive enforcement of the Code will produce some problems for many of the residents who might be forced to relocate should it be necessary to order the demolition of structures which are so deteriorated that they cannot be brought up to Code standards. The emergency housing assistance program conducted by the Housing Authority and EOA the last four months of 1966 provided much needed help to more than 140 families who were forced to relocate because of eviction by landlords or as a result of Code enforcement. I hope that the Housing Authority will be able to provide the same services to residents of the Boulevard area. Mr. Johnny Robinson, Community Development Coordinator of my office, has been in contact with your Befiford-Pine Urban Renewal Project staff and also with the East Central EOA office.

Re Wofford | o. / I am returning the annual report of 1966 which reflects the disposition of the Housing Code Court activities as prepared by the Prosecutor, Mrs. Dusthimer, This report emphasizes two pertinent facts, one being that the City did not lose one case in the Housing Court and that an increasing number of cases has been represented by qualified counsel. I am also attaching the annual report for 1966 as prepared by the Codes Compliance Officer which is comprehensive in scope, and reveals that many more properties were referred to the Codes Compliance Officer in 1966 than in any previous year. It reflects the fact that a definite trend has been established to organize a movement to defeat the present Code. It also points out the need for a complete revision of the present Housing Code which is now in the final stages of preparation and should be ready to present for adoption in the near future. There are some minor differences in the figures shown in the two above reports, but in general they are the same. I would like to have this report returned when you have finished with it.

In accordance with the "In Rem" ordinance we must give public notice and after 90 days from the date of the public hearing we can proceed to demolish the house and place a lien against the property. We are finding our "In Rem" proceedings very productive. Following the July hearing 9 of the 23 buildings involved were demolished before the 90-day limit expired; from the August hearing, 9 were demolished; from the September hearing, 21 and from the October hearing, 19 - 59 buildings out of a total of 129 that were notified and on which public hearings were held, We are proceeding now to award contracts for demolition of those houses where owners have failed to demolish the building involved, IS Seas ATLANTA THE DOGWOOD CITY

In addition, it sets forth an interim set of standards effective March 2, 1967. These interim standards are being established to provide an orderly and equitable transition from the present code requirements of the Workable Frogram to those effective on September 2, 1967, Any community which does not now meet the revised requirements should understand the minimum standards for approval and their effective dates, under both the interim standards and those required under the amended Section 101(c), While Section 30l(a) of the 1964 Act cites only a requirement for the adoption and enforcement of a housing code; building, plumbing, electrical and fire prevention codes are equally pertinent to the intended purposes of this Section, Under the language of Section 101(a) of the Housing Act of 1949, as amended, which cites ",,.. the adoption, modernization, administration and enforcement of housing, zoning, building and other local laws, codes and regulations,...." as a major element in the development of "....positive programs ,.. for preventing the spread or recurrence in the community of slums and blighted areas, ... encouraging housing cost reductions ... and the elimi- nation of restrictive practices which unnecessarily increase housing costs"; and under the general authority of Section 101l(c), the adoption and enforcement, in concert, of all five ‘basic codes has heretofore been a part of Workable Program policy. Therefore, the requirements with respect to_the adoption and enforcement of the housing code will apply also to the adoption and enforcement of building, plumbing, electrical, and fire prevention codes. ; INTERIM STANDARDS FOR CODES AND ORDINANCES ELEMENT .® In anticipation of the September 2, 1967, effective date of the amend- ment, at which time adequate codes must have been in effect for at least 6 months, and in order to provide for an order nd equitable transition from the present code adoption and code enforcement requirements under the Workable Yrogram, applicable present requirements are revised as follows, effective March. 2, 1967: For initial certification. Application for initial certifica- tion of a Workable Program will not be accepted for processing by HUD Regional Offices unless the locality (1) has in effect, building, plumbing, electrical, housing, and fire prevention codes deemed adequate by the Secretary, and (2) is enforcing (or commits itself to enforce without delay) the building, plumbing, electrical and fire prevention codes, and has in- itiated (or commits itself to initiate without delay) an interim housing code compliance program, including the devel- opment of a planned, systematic, comprehensive community-wide housing code compliance program, For first recertification. Applications for first recertification ot a Workable Program will not be accepted for processing by HUD Regional Offices unless the locality (1) has in effect building, plumbing, electrical, and fire prevention codes deemed acceptable by the Secretary, and submits acceptable evidence that it has retained sufficient trained staff to effectively administer these codes, and (2) has in effect a housing code deemed adequate by the Secretary, and submits acceptable evidence that it has been conducting an effective interim housing code compliance program, including the development of a planned, systematic, comprehensive, long-range housing code compliance program, For second and subsequent recertifications, No change in applicable present requirements, REQUIREMENTS TO BECOME EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 2, 1967 For initial certification. Applications for initial certification will not be accepted for processing by HUD Regional Offices unless the locality (1) has had in effect for at least 6 months (or will have had by the expected certification date} building, plumbing, electrical, housing, and fire prevention codes deemed adequate by the Secretary, (2) submits acceptable evidence that it has init- iated an interim housing code compliance program}; and (3) submits acceptable evidence that it has established an appropriate adminis- trative organization, which can effectively carry out code enforce- ment activities. For first recertification. Applications for_first recertification will not be accepted for processing by HUD Regional Officgs unless the locality (1) has had in effect, for at least six months (or will have had by the expected recertification date) building, plumbing, electrical, housing, and fire prevention codes deemed adequate by the Secretary, (2) submits with its application acceptable evidence that it has in existence an effective pro- gram for enforcement of its building, plumbing, electrical, and fire prevention codes, including an adequate budget, sufficient trained staff, and an appropriate system of forms, records, and reporting so as to make the program operative, (3) submits with its application acceptable evidence that it has been conducting a successful interim housing code compliance program, including the establishment of an appropriate system of forms, records, and reporting and the employment of an adequate staff for in- spections, record-keeping, and compliance actions to make the program operative, and (4) has prepared, adopted, and submitted a planned, systematic, area-by-area, community-wide, compre- hensive, long-range housing code compliance program designed to secure compliance with the provisions of the adopted housing code within a reasonable number of years and to maintain all residential properties up to the minimum housing standards established in the community, together with an estimated budget to carry out the program as planned and scheduled. Subsequent recertifications will depend largely on (1) the actions taken by the community to keep its codes up to date, (2) the main- tenance of an effective enforcement organization and program for administration of all codes, and (3) the success of the community in making reasonable progress in meeting the schedules established in its long-range housing code compliance program. (Note: Revisions and adjustments may be made in the long-range housing code compliance program as circumstances may require, so long as they do not limit enforcement or extend the compliance schedules and staffing commitments. Such adjustments should be based upon an annual evaluation of progress as related to the established long-range goals, taking into account all proposals affecting local housing conditions and the availability of standard housing in the community.) The material under the following headings further defines and explains the criteria for acceptable adoption and enforcement of codes under the Workable Program: HOUSING CODE~-CRITERIA FOR ADOPTION : To be deemed adequate by the Secretary, a housing code must (1) be the latest published edition of one of the nationally recognized fliodel housing codes or (2) be a State or locally developed housing code which contains technical and administrative provisions that are reasonably comparable to those in the latest published editions of the model codes, and (3) contain the following provisions, whether or not these are provided for in the model code adopted or used as a guide: (2) Be fully applicable, from the date of its adoption, to all y 8p} > i > housing in the community, regardless of when or under what code such housing was originally constructed, (b) Require a fully equipped bath and toilet facility for every dwelling unit. (c) Provide for an adequate means of egress, (d) Provide for an effective administrative and appeals procedure. OTHER CODES--CRITERIA FOR ADOPTION Adoption of the latest published edition of the nationally recognized model buiiding, plumbing, electrical, and fire prevention codes, without revision or modification except for minor administrative adjustments, will be deemed adequate by the Secretary. Adoption of a State or locally developed building, plumbing, elec- trical, or fire-prevention code which contains technical and administrative provisions reasonably comparable to those contained in the latest published editions of the nationally recognized model ‘codes may also, upon review and analysis, be deemed adequate by the Secretary, except that no such code will be deemed acceptable which contains deviations, or revisions which are unreasonably incompatible with the standards established by the model codes, or which contains deviations or restrictive practices so numerous or of such magnitude as to materially and unreasonably increase the cost of construction or rehabilitation. The provisions of these codes shall also become effective from the date of adoption, INTERIM HOUSING CODE COMPLIANCE PROGRAM The details of an acceptable interim housing code compliance progran, as referred to above, are set forth in Guidelines G-9, "Housing Code Compliance During the First Year Following Adoption of the Housing Code." ~ A PLANNED AND SYSTEMATIC PROGRAM OF HOUSING CODE COMPLIANCE * The details of a planned and systematic program of housing code com- pliance, as referred to above, are set forth in Program Guide No. 1, "Answers on Codes and Ordinances", and Guidelines G-8, "Systematic Housing Code Compliance," CODE ENFORCEMENT IN RELATION TO PLANNED FEDERAL-ALD PROGRAMS In establishing its long-range compliance program, each community should give consideration to its long-range plans for utilizing the Federal housing and urban renewal aids in the affected areas, However, these aids to be used in combination with, rather than as substitutes for, an local enforcement program, The use of the Federal aids may re- re an intensification of the local enforcement program in order to assure a sufficient supply of standard replacement housing for persons ° temporarily displaced from project areas. It is important that the local enforcement program include surveillance over areas scheduled for future urban renewal treatment in order to correct conditions that are hazardous or injurious to health and welfare and to prevent further deterioration L i] pending the actual start of project execution. WORKABLE PROGRAM ELEMENTS RELATED TO CODE ENFORCEMENT Although specific requirements are not being changed at this time or other elements of a Workable Program, localities (particularly those in early stages of code enforcement programs) should bear in mind that the effectiveness of any local housing code enforcement program will require . olid community support; coordinated social, family, and welfare services to families in need of such services, and a well-organized relocation service, including a program for seeing that adequate relocation housing is available, Therefore, in order to meet the new code requirements, a community may have to step up its timing of other activities under the Workable Program. e i + WH © et rh DOCUMENTATION The above elements of an effective program of codes adoption and enforcement should be carefully and fully documented in appropriate sections oi the application for Workable Program certification or recertification (HUD Form H-1081, H-1082, H-1083, or H-1084 as appropriate) and in the neces- sary exhibits to accompany the Form, tt # # G-11, 11/66
