Therefore, a series of maps at 400 scale was prepared showing vacant land and zoning for use in the City's land use planning pro- ject. A copy of the data processing listing of parcel code numbers of vacant parcels, zoning and acreage data was delivered to Steve Schwartz of Cecil Alexander's office during the latter part of April; and; also during the latter part of April, Mr. Schwartz was given access to the 400 scale maps in the Planning Department showing these vacant parcels. These maps were copied and delivered to Mr. Alexander's office prior to May l. On June 28 at a meeting of the Planning and Development Committee, a map of vacant and "under-developed" land was shown in connection with the land use plan progress report. After this meeting, Malcolm Jones requested that a copy of this map showing zoning of vacant areas be provided to the Housing Resources Committee. This map was prepared by the Planning Department and delivered to Col. Jones. On July 6 this map and a preliminary analysis of areas zoned A-1 aad vacant was presented to the Housing Resources Committee. The analysis showed a total of 482 acres "zoned for apartments". The apparent discrepancy between this figure and the 802 acres shown in the data processing analysis can be explained by the fact that the maps used in both couputations, although similar, were not really comparable. The map used in the Housing Resources Committee analysis was at a4 scale of 2,000 feet to the inch and the maps used in the data process- ing analysis were at a scale of 400 feet to the inch. Due to the small maps at a scale of 2,000 feet to the inch, accurate measurement is difficult, and, additionally, only large parcels can be shown. At 400 scale, more accurate representation and measurement are possible. Therefore, upon receipt by the Planning Department of the committee request for additional data, further detailed maps at 400 scale were prepared showing only significant vacant tracts (4 acres and larger), so that a more detailed listing of vacant land could be made. A preliminary analysis has been made by the Planning Department of each significant tract, and the result of this analysis is presented in Appendix A to this memorandum, The maps used in the analysis are available in the Planning Department for detailed examination by interested parties.

Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman, Housinz Resoirces Committee Mr, Archer D. Smith, representing Mr. Charles L.

Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. Stewart Wight, member, Land Acquisition Panel Dean William S. Jackson, Chairman, Social Problems Panel Mr. Edward S. Simon, Vice-Chairman, Business Participation Panel Mr, Dale Clark, Chairman, Public Information Panel Mr. Malcolm D. Jones, Director Also present at the meeting were: Mr. William S. Holland, Executive Director, CACUR Mr. Lester A. Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and then called on Mr. Jones to present the current status report of the program, Mr. Jones stated that his office was in the process of retyping the lowe income housing inventory report but had only the summary ready for this meeting (Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented to Executive Group members). He explained that included in the inventory are apartment units beinz developed under conventional financing which do not cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a duplex and $15,000 for a single family house. He explained that the last page of the summary contains notes, some of which are especially significant. He explained that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on August 31, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on the whole we have lost ground in this program since the previous report two months ago. He then called attention to the extract from the CIP report pertaining to low-income housing recuirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder). He also pointed out that we are not really building low-cost housing in public housing but low-income housing. He also explained Item (a) on the agenda and the correspondin’; document in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertaining to available land suitably zoned for the low-income housing program. At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones' office was under- staffed to handle the statistical data recuired by the CIP and proposed that from here on out when someone goes to the Building Department for a permit we should try to set the Permit Desk to list what the rent on the units will be and number of bedrooms per unit; that there is no way we can require this legally; and that another thing that we need to do is to also go back to the developers now in the program and get more specific information on their plans. He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee for not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures being built are reasonably good and that his feelin::s are that a great deal more interest should be put in the lowest rental-purchase ranges; that we can get more in that price range from the prefabricated housing; that the carrying charges on these per month is important and we should find out what it is; that to meet the really tough part of the program means going to the City for additional help. He also asked for comments from members of the Committee. Mr. Clark said he would support asking for more help; that he also saw a news report for housing that wovld rent for 50 to $70 per month, uncer the Farmers Association program; that it is in DeKalb County, and is called City Line. Mr. Alexander stated that is a good start to zet lowecost housing in the counties. Another member stated that the Farmers Association prozram is also a part of the FHA program. Mr. Palmer inquired as to the definition of low-cost housing? . Mr. Jones replied that it is essentially a matter of interpretation, Mr. Alexander stated that is was from $0 to $55 per month, Mr. Palmer commented "And they want low-income housing built under private enterprise?" Mr. Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey development. Mr. Jones added “And even Rent Supplement", Mr. Alexander again proposed asking the City for a Clerk and developing a form for the Building Department to get filled out at the time permits are obtained anc stated that we will have to talk to Mr. Wofford about that. A motion was made that the matter be left in Mr. Jones! hands, Mr. Yates seconded it. The matter was dronoed there, Mr, Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zoning matters is not an open and shut case as to how to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as a extracurricular roll to assist the develovers in this program; that this has been cone in several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to go around looking at these sites to recommend those which we consider reasonable, Mr. Jones explained that this is what he and Mr. Gates have been attemoting to do; that they have been out with the s,onsors and actually looked at most of the sites and have only listed anc encouraged those which they felt were practical and desirable; that in a several instances they have discouraged sponsors from submittins sites which they felt were impracticable or unsuitable. Mr. Alexander continued that his feeling is that we should try to aid and assist the builders in this program but that we have no power to change what is going on and that we are having our pro»vosals turned down one by one for various reasons. He stated that the approach which he felt we should take is to issue a general statement about the housing program, its needs, and the shortaze of land that is now suitably zoned and to work toward getting a rezoning of the entire City, with due consideration for low-income housing needs; that as for working with the cevelopers we should be governed by what we see is acceptable to the Board of Aldermen and the Building Department in granting permits; and further to come to some conclusion about the problems. He stated that we should also help the developers arrange meetings with the Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone who wants to talk to them about deficiencies in Commnity Facilities related to the housing program, which in some instances have been legimate, such as parks, transportation, traffic, schools etc. He further stated that at the same time the urgency of this program has seemed to escape some people; that one thing which we also necd is to emphasize the requirement for additional low-income housing in the neighboring cities and countics and make it clear that we are not trying to create a haven here in Atlanta for the whole country to come to and move in on this program; that this may happen, but we should try to avoi:! it. He statcd that the CIP requirement is for replacement of houses and apartments that are unfit for human habitation. He then called upon Mr. Jones for comments. Mr. Jones stated he feels that it we do not take a position to actively sup»ort the cevelopers who have proposed good projects and which apnearg reasonable, he cid not know who would; that he was personally inclined to feel that we can do a service if we as a Committee take a »osition on such projects; that he does not think however that many areas will be built in the City which already have a surplus of community facilities; that he has hopec that we can supply facilities such as parks, schools, playgrounds etc. simultaneous with the development of the housing projects, by relying on other Agencies and other Departments}; that those details should be checked into carefully and coordination made to provide these services as adequately as we cam. He said that he felt personally that a statement from the Housing Resources Committee on each of the projects proposed for low-income housing would be helpful to the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee when they make their decisions. He pointed out cifficulties which we have had in getting sites approved up to that point and emlained that he and Mr. Gates (the Committee Consultant) have attempted to look at each proposed site but have been unable to follow through on all details such as checking on the adequacy of community facilities etc.; that in several instances he and Mr. Gates have discouraecd syonsors for this reason or that; such as ground too rough, facilities not available etc. and that as a result, several of the sites originally proposed have never come up for rezoning. He further stated that he was inclined to feel that on those provosals for Turnkey development that it would even be well for the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee to know whether or not the Housing Authority considered the sites as favorable and suitable. One member commented that perhaps the whole City needs to be rezoned. Mr. Alexander replied it seemed to him that we must create additional land through purchases for the city-wide approach; that when the individual developer cancs along, there should be a body looking to the interest of the whole city and it apneared to him that these things have thus far been considered only by the Board of Aldermens that he wonders whether this is doing the program the best service? He stated that consulting with the Planning Board is also very much in order, presumably. In referring to Item (a) on the agenda and the corresponding marked document in the folder, Ur. Henderson inquired if this material is what his Committee had asked for? Mr. Jones stated that this is what the Planning Department provided in response to his panel's request; that when we got it, it came in two forms: a zoning man of the City with vacant land areas superimposed on it in oranges and a report of total land in the various zoning catagories and vacant land by Land Lot and District. Mr. Jones further explained that the Planning Department is now making a comprehensive Land-Use study to go before the Board of Aldermen with some proposed changes in the overall land-use of the City; that he felt the best thing this Committee could do now is to get its recommendations presented to the Planning and Development Committec; that we have s Joint Meeting scheduled for the 29th of September. Mr. Alexander then told Dr, Henderson that he should meet with Mr. Jones to go over the material provided by the Planning Department, but that in trying to resolve this thing we are still short on land and those two should came up with a proposal, say in September, as to the number of acres needed and its distribution. Dr. Henderson asked approximately how many acres does that involve? Mr. Jones replied that the maximum censity autnorized for garden type partments is 16 units per acre, but that the Housing Authority has been trying to hold that down to about 12 units per acre. Mr. Persells stated that was correct; that 3, , and 5 bedroom units, which the Housing Authority particularly needs, results in reduction of the density tolow 16 units per acre. Mr. Jones explained we had one project which has been approved by FHA at 16 units per acre, but it is in an Urban Renewal project; that we had a developer recently dropd a project because he had bourht the land expecting to develope it at the maximum authorized density of 16 units per acre and that in preliminary discussions, FHA suggested 10 units per acre. Mr. Alexander stated that it is open to debate about how many total acres would be required;-that our experience to date indicates that no more than 1/3 of the land appropriately zoned actually gets into the low-income housing program, due to turndowns by HUD, FHA, neighborhoods etc.; that to date only about 1/3 of the land zoned has found its way into this program. Mr. Alexander stated that there apvears to be a need to rezone the City at large; that there were 51 zoning petitions on the agenda recently for one neeving of the Planning Board. Mr. Jones explained that the current zoning was especially planned for industry; that many areas were originally planned but never used as industrial, which development will not occur in the forseeable future, and that the same applies to much of the land now zoned residential (single family development) whereas the immediate need of the City now is for low-income multi-family housing. Mr. Persells explained that the Housing Authority has gone back over the land to consider additional parcels which could be used for the low-income housing category where changes seem to be reasonable. * + * Mr. Alexander stated the builders have claimed that FHA procedures were holding them up; that Atlanta is one of the City's in which FHA now claims that it can process an application in less than 2 weeks; that this is a change in attitude, but the 221 d (3) program does not come within the direct line of FHA's principal insuring policy. Mr. Alexander asked Mr. Clark if the report prepared by Mr. Gates on the accelerated procedure for multi-family processing by FHA could be carried to the press (Item 6 on the agenda, with covies in the folders) Mr. Clark indicated that it would probably be better for this type of announcement to be made by the local FHA office rather than from this Committee. Mr. Alexander then referred to Item 7 on the agenda pertaining to the proposal in the Rent Supplement program to require nonprofit sponsors to put up 5% equity (in effect a donation); that the reason the attempt to put this thing in, is the theory that if nonprofit sponsors are financially inwl1ved in the success of their project that they will have more permanent interest in it; that Urban America's feeling is, if this is done the Rent Supplement program will die before it gets an opportunity to grow; and Urban America has suggested that those interested send telegrams to their Senators and to Senator Warren Magnuson sugeesting that this approach of requiring the 5% equity will defeat the purpose of the program; that what he would like to do is to get an authorization from the Committee to sign a telegram in support of this position and to urge consideration of this matter in the final preparation of the bill. A motion was made by Mr. Palmer, seconded ane unanimously adopted asking Mr. Alexander to send such telegrams to appropriate Senators. Mr. Clark asked if the 5% donation is a known step or a new development. Mr. Alexander stated that it is new; that the thinking is that the nonprofit sponsor is not suposed to be getting any profit back from the project ane it is asking too much of him to put up 5% equity donation to the project. Mr, Alexander also said that to give the other side of it is, that in 221 d (3) nonprofit projects one can borrow up to a 102% of the project cost and this is what you are competing with, in a sense. Mr. Persells asked Mr. Alexander to explain the 102%.. Mr. Alexander explained what the extra 2% takes care of.. + Fc * Mr. Alexander again asked for and received unanimous consent to request the City for a Glerk for at least 3 months. Mr. Alexander then called for brief reports from the Pancl Chairmen.- Legal Panel ~ Mr. Archer Smith made a very interesting presentation of his case study and the significance of the Shaffer vs. City of Atlanta Housing Code Case, which he announced was coming up for hearing the next day. Construction and Design Panel ~ As no one was present to represent this panel, Mr. Alexander explained a project which that panel was working on involving Building Codes and a System study.. Finance and Nonprofit Funds Panel - Mr. Alexander explained that this panel is working on creation of a Nonprofit Housing Development Corporation. He also mentioned the favorable comments made at the Urban America Seminar by a local banker pertaining to loans made through his bank to sponsors of nonprofit projects. Business Participation Panel - Mr. Alexander commented briefly on his recent conference in Washington with Secretary Weaver and FHA Administrator, Brownstein, pertaining to bringing "Big Business" into the low-income housing field. Public Information Panel ~ Mr. Clark commented on the ill-fated Browntormn Road rezoning attempt and to a nonprofit sponsor project which is being promoted locally by the Interfaith Group of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Social Problems Panel - Dean Jackson explained that the averaze annual income for Negroes in Atlanta is $3600 and that the number one question is the adequacy of the number of bedrooms in rental units. Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. David T. Edwards, sponsor of a rezoning petition for an 18 acre site on the West side of Atlanta, North of Bakers Ferry Road, S. W. (LL 2h, lth Dist. FF) to present his proposal (one of three in Item 5 on the agenda). Mr. Edwards made a2 good and convincing presentation; From questions asked. and comments made by some members of the Committee, the Committee anpeared receptive to Mr. Edwards! proposal. Formal action by the Committee however was not called for by the Chairman to endorse this project to the Zoning Committee, as had previously been requested by Mr. Edwards, as well as similar requests from sponsors of two other projects which the Committee had previously endorsed to the Planning Board. This was for reasons explained earlier in the mecting. Subscquently however, the Chairman of the Planning Board was requested to pass on to the Zoning Committce, with the Planning Boards! recommendations, a letter which had previously been written by the Committee to the Planning Board endorsing those two projects. The meeting was adjorned at 12 noon, _e + te EN Pb Lethe pate “ee Malcolm D.

There are only 90-10 acres of vacant land in the city and few large housing developments, but many of 16-32 units. The Greatcr Hartford area consists of 29 separate municipalities or communities of which only four have approved Workable Prozrams. The corooration has developed a pre-processed reusuable package for assistance and guidance of developers. This packaze has basic designs for two and three bedroom units. %2,00C to $3,000 per project is usually sufficient to test proposed project's practibility. The corporation has not gone deeply into rehabilitation. It has thus far rehabilitated two units under 221 d (3) and purchased 12 group units. 221 (h) has not been popular because cannot find suitable areas in which to work. The Greater Hartford Housing Development fund, Inc. is svonsored by the Hartford Chamber of Commerce. Funds to finance the corporation were obtained from 26 of the major firms in the area in the sum of $1,500,000 ($700,000 in cash and the balance in commitments.) These funds were obtained through personal solicitation as loans from life insurance companies, banks and major industries. The corporation is nonprofit, organized to lend seed money on a revolving basis and to provide technical skill on a consulting basic to sponsors of rental units for low-income families. Efforts however are not limited to nonprofit organiz«tions. Specific After the corporation was organized arrangements were made to borrow on a maximum line of credit of $700,000, secured by 10 year notes, with interest up to 6 percent, payable asavailable. Only $350,000 of this amount has been actually drawn to date. In lieu of interest, surplus is returned to lenders, as funds are accumulated as authorized by the directors, in lump sum amounts. Uses The Housing Jevelopment Fuid, Inc. operates in the capital region including Hartford and five of the surrounding suburbs. The revolving fund is used primarily for: 1. Seed money loans to other local nonorofit rrounps. 2. Land banking--accunulating land for future development for low-cost housing. To be resold at no mark up. 3.

Ho At the conclusion of Mr. Hirshson's talk, Mr. Alexander then introduced Mr. Tom Lord, Assistant Director Nonprofit Housing Center,Urban America, Ince, which orgarization sponsored and underwrote Mr. Hirshson's trip to Atlanta. Mr. Lord explained that Urban America is a national, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., an is decicatec to improving housing for low-income people in the nation's cities. The Nonprofit Housing Center of Urban America provides technical assistance to nonprofit sponsors of lower income housing anc helps communities organize revolving funds and nonprofit housing development corporations. The Center is financed by the Ford Foundation, the Episcopal, Methodist, United Presbyterian and United Church of Christ churches. Urban America does not ooerate on a fee basis and always endeavors to keep local people involved. It attempts to adapt to local conditions and assist in bringing public and private interests together in a joint action to secure inprovement in housing for low income people. He also announced that Mr. W. W. Gates, Consultant to the Housing Yesources Committee, is Urban America's representative in Atlanta. Other Items As time was growing short, Mr. Alexander then asked Mr. Jones to siimodly pass out to the members of the Committee (without comment) a self-explanator, report dated August 9, 1967 (Encl. 1) prepared by the Housing Resources Committee staff pertaining to the "Preliminary Report (from the Planning vepartment)--Amount of Vacant Land in the City by Zoning District," dated July 21, 1967. Also attached was a comparison, prepared by the Housing Resources Committee staff, between the Analysis by HiC of the Zoniny Map previously provided the ERC by the Planning Department and the tabulations contained in Ap»vendix to July 21 Memorancum from the Planning Jepartment. Time did not permit detailed considcration anc ciscussion in the meetings of this report which was designed to serve as a basis for conclusions and recommendations of the Housing xesourcces Committee for its proposed mec ting in the near future with the Planning and Jevelopmont Committee of the Board of Aldermen. Mr. Alexander then amnouncec that the Housine :iesources Committee had been requested by respective developers of three rather large tracts to support them before the Joint Planning Board and the Zoning Committee of the Boara of Aldermen to get those properties re=-zoned to A-l. Mr. Alexander called upon Mr. Jones to explain each site to the Committee. Mr. Jones pointed out the locations of the three sites on the map and explained the proposed development of cach. (Two with plats and tentative site layouts). After Mr, Jones' presentation of the three »roposals, Mr. Alexander called upon Mrs, Xernona Clayton, American Friends Service Committee, for comment on any of the proposals and whether they would complicate the work being done in the southwest arca by SWAP. Mrs. Clayton explained SWAP's purpose and operation in the Beacher—Cascade—iest Gordon Road and Fairburn Road area south to Sewell Road. She offered no objection to any of the proposed projects. Site No. 1. 51 acre tract north of Brownville Road between Jackson Parkway and Bolton oad, now zoned M=1, proposed by “hitting-Turner Construction Co, for Turnkey Gevelopment for Public Heusing. This tract has been tentatively approved by the Housin: Authority and HUD and favorable action already rocommanded by the Plannins Board.

Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for adequacy of school facilities. The Foundation for Cooperative Housing, which developed Eastwych Village and Cambridge Square (both in DeKalb County), now has full time representative in Atlanta and is seeking clients. They are sponsoring the 200 unit London Towne Houses development in Atlanta (Item F-5). In view of difficulties encountered in zming-and getting other approvals on sites vroposed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that the low-income housing program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial portion of the program on small scattered sites. Thus far, 86 single family houses (Item F-12) and 1,665 units in duplexes and relatively small apartment developments, under conventional financing, are in this category. No proposal has yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50.00 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30.00 = $50.00 per month-rental purchase range. Attorney Blackwell in Decatur has proposed a concrete 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,000 sq. ft. house which he clains can sell for $6,000, plus land costs, incl. heating and air conditioning equipment. . National Homes Corp. of Lafayette, Inc. placed on the market Feb. 1, 1967, a 800 ~ 900 S.F. (0.S. dimensions) 3 bedroom, prefabricated, preassembled panel, single family house plus a 96 S.F. (I.S. dimensions) storage building manufactured by Arrow Metal Products Corp, to sell under FHA 221 (d) (2). Price includes plumbing, electrical, heating unit, stove & refrigerator, House can be completely assembled in 85 man hours; 53 of these (with conventional plumbing) are being erected (pre-sold) in the Thomasville Urban Renewal Area. Approx. 800 sq. ft. house is priced at $12,200, 900 sq. ft. house is priced at $12,600, Adrian Homes Corp. has proposed a prefab to retail for about $7,500 plus land, foundation, closing and possibly tapving fees (See Item C-10 for others), Saul Gray is a partner in a Corporation which owns 280 new units off Bankhead at Elbridge St., which he wants to sell, + a potential development on the site for 512 additional units. Area is already zoned A-l. Rehabilitation by Housing Code Division of Building Department on Boulevard in Bedford-Pine U. R. Project (apsroximately 700 units involved) commenced February 1. The U. R. project is still in survey and planning stage. A list is available in Housinz Resources Committee office of 103 units on Boulevard which the owners stated they wish to sell, rather than rehabilitate. This list has been made available to the H.A. and to a National concern interested in developing a Rehabilitation Demonstration project in that area. Ralph L. Dickey of Atlanta has proposed a non-profit revolving fund enterprise to acquire substandard housing, renovate it and resell, primarily through private enterprise.

Hirshson, Executive irector, Greater Hartford Housin; Jevelopment “und Inc. lir. Hirshson was the guest speaker anc presented a very interesting impromptu report on his experiences in the formation and operation of Hartford's Non-profit Housing Vevelopment Corp. The followins is some of what Mr. Nirshson had to say: General Hartford consists of 18 square miles, has a population of 160,000 and needs 6,000 low-income dwelling units, of which 5,000 are now substandard. There are only 90-10. acres of vacant land in the city and few large housing developments, but many of 16-32 units. The Greatcr Hartford area consists of 29 separate municipalities or communities of which only four have approved Workable Prozrams. The corooration has developed a pre-processed reusuable package for assistance and guidance of developers. This packase has basic designs for two and three bedroom units. $2,00C to $3,000 per project is usually sufficient to test proposed project's practibility. The corporation has not gone deeply into rehabilitation. It has thus far rehabilitated two units under 221 d (3) and purchased 12 zroup units. 221 (h) has not been popular because cannot find suitable areas in which to work. The Greater Hartford Housing Develonment Func, Inc. is sponsored by the Hartford Chamber of Commerce. Funds to finance the corvoration were obtained from 26 of the major firms in the erea in the sum of $1,500,000 ($700,000 in cash and the balance in commitments.) These funds were obtained through personal solicitationas loans from life insurance companies, banks and major industries. The corporation is nonprofit, organized to lend seed money on a revolvins basis anc to provide technical skill on a consulting basic to sponsors of rental units for low-income families. Efforts however are not limited to nonprofit organizetions. Specific After the corporation was organizcd arrangements were made to borrow on a maximum line of credit of $700,000, secured by 10 year notes, with interest up to 6 percent, payable asavailable. Only $350,000 of this amount has been actually drawn to date. In lieu of interest, surplus is returned to lenders, as funds are accumulated as authorized by the directors, in lump sum amounts. Uses The Housing Jevelopment Fuid, Inc. operates in the capital region including Hartford and five of the surrounding suburbs. The revolvinz fund is used primarily for: 1. Seed money loans to other local nonprofit croups. 2. Land banking--accumulating land for future development for low-cost housing.

In Connecticut, the State has a loan fund to supply sced money to nonprofit sponsors in form of loans and grants. 2. Rehabilitated homes are most suitable for housing large families. 3. Land held in land bank is subject to usual taxes, Administratisn Staff consists of two men (Mr. Hirshson, Executive Director, who is the outside contact mans; and his assistant who is the inside administration man) and a secretary. HH At the conclusion of Mr. Hirshson's talk, Mr. Alexander then introduced Mr. Tom Lord, Assistant Director Nonprofit Housing Center,Urban America, Inc., which organization sponsored and underwrote Mr. ifirshson's trip to itlanta.

He also announced that Mr. W. W. Gates, Consultant to the Housing %esources Committee, is Urban America's representative in Atlanta.

  • Text: Jlozey Aden HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE Room 120), City Hall August 2h, 1967 Mr. Ivery Simmons, President Simmons Construction Company 629 F Street, Ne We Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Simmons: Your letter of August 8, 1967 to Mayor Ivan Allen has been referred to this Committee. We appreciate your interest in being willing to participate in rehabilitation of substandard residential property in depressed neighborhoods, particularly your proposal to hire unskilled and unemployed people living in these areas. Atlanta is anticipating going into the execution phase soon on our large Bedford-Pine Urban Renewal. project and hope to be selected as one of the cities to participate in the Model City's program with an area of approximately 3,000 acres. These projects have not yet been funded. We anticipate considerable rehabilitation in each of these areas, however most of it will be done by the existing property owners with Federal assistance in the form of grants and low interest loans. Title to these properties will in general remain with the present owners. There are other large areas in the City, however, with considerable substandard property, both residential and commercial, with a considerable number of individual structures being condemmed under the housing code. In the opinion of this Committee these areas offer excellent opportunity for improvement under the 221 (h) rehabilitation program by nonprofit organizations or under the Builder- Seller provisions of the 221 d (3) program. If you should be interested in coming to Atlanta to look over the situation firsthand with view te possible participation in our rehabilitation needs, I shall be glad to arrange an appointment at a time that will be mutually agreeable. Very truly yours, Malcolm D. Jones Supervisor of Inspection Services MDJ/s11.

  • Text: August 9, 1967 HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE Comparison of July 5 Analysis by HRC from Zoning Map and Appendix to July 21 Memo. from Planning Department Zoning Map was revised April 31, 1957. Appendix was compiled as of January 1966. As can be seen, discrepencies exist in both land lots and acreages between the Zoning Map Analysis and the Appendix, This may be accounted for by zoning changes and_new developments which have taken place since the compilation shown in the Appendix. However, this reduces the dependency which can be placed now on the compilation of figures showm in the Appendix. See Summary at end of the attached Comparative Tabulations for acreages already committed; turned down or rejected; and planned for other uses. Vacant areas zoned A-L (understood to be generally for a specifically planned development) and A=2 (not generally accepted locally as suitable for low-cost housing, except for the Elderly) have not been generally included in this comparison. The vacant land in both categories is relatively small however » | CONCLUSION: in any event, from the attached comparison, it is quite obvious that the land currently zoned A-1 is both inadequate in quantity and unequitably distributed throughout the City to meet requirements of the low-income housing program. 7. : = * 2 A 7} + el of : a, ie oe Encls Comparative Tabulations NCAR ap Ee i f Ty Taw, as Malcolm D.

MEf.TL 'i1 September 12, 1967 The Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committee met at 10: 00 a.m., September 12, 1967, in Conn'littee Room t12, City Hall. The following members were present: Mr. Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman, Housin~ Resow-ccs Committee Mr. Archer D.

Simon, Vice-Chairman, Business Participation Panel Mr. Dale Clark, Chairman, Public Information Panel Mr. Malcolm D. Jones, Director Also present at the meeting were: Mr. William S. Holland, Executive Director, CACUR · Mr.· Lester A. Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and then called on Mr . Jones to present the current status report of the program. Mr. Jones stated that his office was in the process of retyping the low• income housing inventory report but had only the summary ready for this meeting (Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented to Executive Group members). He explained that included in the inventory are apartment units bei~ developed under conventional financing which tlo not cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a du)lex and $1S,OOO for a single family house. He eA-plainecl that the last page of the summary contains notes, s:, me of which are especially significant. He explained that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on August 31, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on the whole we hnve lost ground in this program since the previous report two months ago. �2 He then called attention to the extract from the CIP report pertaining to low-income housing requirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder). He also pointed out t hat we are not really building low-cost housing in public housing but low-income housing . He also explained Item 4(a) on the a genda and the correspondin:; document in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertaining to available land suitably zoned for the low-income housing program. At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones' office was understaff ed to handle the statistical data required by the CIP and proposed that f rom here on out when someone GOes to the Building Department for a permit we should try to r,et the Per1ut Desk to list what the rent on the units will be and number of bedrooms per unit; th2.t ther e is no way we can require this legally; and that another thing that we need to clo is to also go back to the developers now in_ the program and get more specific information on their plans. He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee f or not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures beins built are reasonably r;ood and that his fe elin::s ar e that a gr eat deal more int eres t should be put in the lowest r ental-purchase ran~es ; that we can get more in that price r ange f rom the prefabricat ed housing; th2.t the carrying charges on these per month i s important and we should find out what it is; that to meet the r eally tough part of the program m6ans going to the City for additional hel p . He als o asked for comments f rom members of the Coilll'ilittee. Mr . Clnrk s ai d he would sup~'.)ort a s k in,~ f or more help; that he als o s aw a news repor t f or housing t hat woul d r ent f or $50 t o ~>70 per month, under the Farmers Associa tion program; t hat i t i s in DeKalb County , and is called City Line . Mr . Alexander stated that is a good start to ~et low.cost housing in the counties . Another member stat ed that the Farmers Association pro,::ram is als o a part of the FHA program. ~.lr . PaJ.mcr inquired as to the def init ion of low-cost hous ing, . Mr. Jone s replied that it i s essentially a matter of interpr et a t i on , Mr. Alexander st ated tha t is was from $0 to ~55 per mont h . Mr. Palmer cormnent ed "And t hey want l ow- i ncome housi ne built under privat e enterprise?" Mr. Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey development. Mr. Jones added 11 And even Rent Supplement". �3 Mr. Alexander again pro_p osed askin(~ the City f or a Clerk and developing a form for the- Building Department to get fille d out at the time permits are obtained and. ctated that we will have to talk to Mr. Wofford about that. A motion was made that the matter be lef t in Mr. Jones' hands , Y.tr. Yates seconded it.- The matter was dropqed there. Mr, Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zoning matters is not an open and shut case as to how to make reconnnendations to the Boo.rd of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as n extracurricular roll to a 1,sist the developers in this progrrun; t hat this has been done i n several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to co around looking at these s ites to r e commend. thos e which we cons ider reasonable. Mr. Jones explained. that this is what he and Mr. Gates have been atteml)ting to do; that they have been out with the s-,:)Onsors and actually looked at most of tho sites anc.t have only listed and. encouraged thos e which they felt were pr actical and desirable, t hat in a several ins tances they have di scourai cd sponsors f rom submittin0 s ites which they f elt were impr~cticable or unsuitable . Hr. Alexander continued t hat hie feel :LnG i s that we s hould t ry t o ai d and assist the builder s i n this progr am but that we hnve no p or"'7er t o cha116 e what is going on and that we a.r e hnvin:~ our pr o )Osal s turned down one by one f or various reasons. He stated that the approach which he felt we s hould t ake i s to issue a general s t at ement about t he housing progr am, i t s needs, and the shor t a~e of land. that is now suitabl y zoneG and t o work towar d gettin;-~ a rezoning of the ent ire City, with due consideration f or l ow-i n come housing needs; that as for working with t he developers we should be governed by what wo sec is a cceptabl e t o the Board of Aldermen and t ho Building De~art ment i n granting permits; and fur ther t o come to some conclusion about the problems. He stated that we should also hel p the developers arrange meetings with the Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone who want s to talk to them about deficiencies in Community Facil ities relat ed t o t he housing program, which in some instances have been lcgimat c , such as parks , transportation, traffic, schools etc. He further stated that at t he same time the ur 6ency of this program has seemed to es cape some ;)eople; that one thing which we also need is to emphasize the requirement for additional low-income housing in the neighboring cities and counties and make it clear that we are not trying to creat e a haven here in Atlanta for the whol e country to come to and move in on t his program; tha t this may happen, but we should try t o avoi,1. it. He stated that the CIP requirement is for repl acement of houses and apartments that are unfit for human habitation. He then called upon Mr. Jones for comments. Mr. Jones stated he feels t hat it we do not take a position to actively sup::iort the c:'.evelopers who have proposedgood projects and which apIJear~ reasonable, he di d not know who would; that he was personally inclined to fe el that we can do a service if we 'as'"a Committee take a ')Osition on such proj ects; that he docs not think however t hat mnny are;is will be built in the City which already have a surplus of community facilities; that he has hopec. that we can sup;)ly facilities such as parks, schools, playgrounds etc. simultaneous with the development of the housing pr oj ects, by r elying on other Agencies and other Department s ; �4 that those deta.ils should be checked into carefully and coordination made to provide these services as adequately as we ca1i . · He said th2.t he felt personally that a statement from the Housing itesources Cammi ttee on each of the proj ects proposed f or low-income housing would be helpful to the Planning Boa:.· d and. the Zoning Committee when they make their decisions. He pointed out difficulties which we have had in gettine sites approved up to that point and ffi~)lainecl that he and Hr. Gates (the Committee Consultant) have attempted to look at each proposed site but have been unable to follow through on all details such a s checking on the adequacy of community facilities etc.; that in several instances he and Mr. Gates have discourni~ed s ponsors for this reason or that; such as ground too rough, facilities not availabl e etc. and that as a result, sever al of the sites originally propos ed have nev8r come up for rezoning. · He further stated that he was inclined to feel that on those prooosals for Turnkey development that it would ev2n be W:?11 for the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee to know whether or not the Housing Authority considered the sites as favor able and suitabl e . One member commented that perhaps the whole City needs to be rezoned. Mr. Alexander replied it seemed to him that we must create additional land through purchases for the city - wide avproa ch; that when the indivi dual developer canes along, there s hould be a body looking to the interest of the whole city and it ap;)eared to him that these things have thus far been consider ed only by the Board of Aldermen; that he wonders whether t his is doing the program the best service? He stat ed that consulting with the Planning Board is als o v cr.J much in order, presumably . In r eferring to Item 4(a) on the agenda and the corresponding marked doc1.ll7lent in the fol der, Dr . Hender s on inquired i f this material i s wha t his Committee had asked for ? tvlr. Jones s t ated that this is Phat the Planning Department pr ovided i n response to hi s panel' s request; th.it when i.e got it, it came in t wo f orms: a zoni ng map of the Cit~, wi th vacant lancl ar eas super impos ed on it i n orange; and a re,ort of total l and in tho various zoni ng cat aeories and vacant l and by Land Lot and Dis t ri ct. Mr . Jones f urther expl ained t hat t he Planning fupart ment i s now maki ng a comprehensive Land-Use s tudy to go before the Board of Aldermen with come propos ed changes in t he overall land-use of the Cit y; t hat he fel t the best thin:; t his Cammi ttee coul d do now is to 1.:;ct its r 0, commendat i ons presented t o the Planning and Development Commit tee; that we have a Joi nt Meeting scheduled for the 29th of September. Mr. Alexander then told Dr . Henderson that hes hould meet with Mr. Jones to go over the material provided by the Planning Department, but that in trying to resolve this thing we are still short on land and t hose two should cane up with a proposal, say in September, as to the number of acres needed and its distribution. Dr. Henderson asked approximately how many acres does that involve? �5 Mr. Jones replied that the maximwn ci.ensity authorized for garden type ,:·.partments is 16 units per acre, but that the Housing Authority has been tr,fing to hold that down to about 12 units per acre. Mr. Pcrsells stated that was corre ct; that 3, h, and 5 bedroom units, which the Hous ing Author ity particularly needs, r esults in r eduction of the density tclow 16 units per a cre. Mr. Jones explained we had one proj ect which has been approved by FHA at 16 units per acre , but it is in nn Urban Renewal project; that we had a developer recently drop a project bec~use he had bought the land expecting to develope it at the maxinum authorized dens ity of 16 units per a cre and that i n preliminary discussions, FHA suggested 10 units per acre. Mr. Alexander s t ated that it is open to debat e about how many total acres would be required.; -that our experience to dat e indi cates that no more than 1/3 of t he l and appropriately zoned actually gets into the low-income housing program, due to turnd.mms by HUD, FHA, nei ghborhoods etc. ; that to date only about 1/3 of the land zoned has found its way into this program. Mr. Alexander stated that there ap) ears to be a need to rezone the City at large ; that there wer e 51 zoning petitions on the agenda recently for one ';.ec':-i ng of the Planning Board. V.tr . Jones expl ained that the current z anin5 wa s especially planned for indus try; that many areas wer e orieinall y pl anned but never us ed as industrial, 1-,:-D.ch development will not occur in the f orsceable futur e , and that the same applies to much of t he land now zoned r esidential ( s ingl e fam ily development) whereas t ho immediat e need of the City now i s f or low-income multi-family housing. Mr. Persell s expl ained that the Housing Author i ty has gone ba ck over the lani es in the folders) Mr. Clark indicated that it would probably be better for this type of announcement to be made by the local FHA office rather than f rom this Committee. �6 Mr. Alexander then referred to Item 7 on the agenda pertaining to the proposal in the fl.ent Supplement program to require nonprofit sponsors to put up 5%equity (in effect a donation); that the reason the attempt to put this thing in, is the theOI'iJ that if nonprofit sponsors 2re financially inm lved in the success of their project that they will hD.ve more permanent interest in it; that Urban AmGrica's feeling is, if this is done the Rent Supplement program will die before it gets an opportunity to grow; and Urban America has suGgested that those interested send telegrams to their Senators and to Senator Warren Magnuson sugGesting tlkct this approach of re~uiring the 5% equity will defeat the purpose of the program; that what he would like to do is to eet an authorization from the Committee to sign a t 8l egram in support of this position and to urge cons idercJ.tion of this matter in the final preparation of the bill. A motion was made by Mr .. Palmer, s econded and unanimously c1.dopt ed asking Mr. Alexander to sen<.J. such telogrruns to appropriate Sen<'..tors. · Mr. Clark asked if the .5%o.onation i s a known step or a new development. Mr. Alexander s t at ed that it i s nonprofit, spons or i s not sup-: iosed to and it is asking too much of him to Mr. Alexancler also s aid that to gi ve nonprof it proj e cts one can borrow up is what you are compe ting with, in a new; that t he thinking i s tha t t he be gct t in~ any prof it back f rom t he proj e c.t put up 5%equity ~onation to the proj e ct. · the other si d.P. of it is, that in 221 d (3) to a 102% of the proj ect coat and this sense .

The Foundation for Cooperative Housing, which developed Eastwych Village and Cambridge Square (both in DeKalb County), now has full time representative in Atlanta and is seeking clients. They are sponsoring the 200 unit London Towne Houses development in Atlanta (Item F-5). D. In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that the low-income housing program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders .providing a substantial portion of the program on small scattered ·sites. Thus far., 486 single family houses (Item F-12) and 1,665 units in duplexes and relatively small apar~ment developments, under conventional financing., are in this category. E. No proposal has yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50o00 per month. greatest need is in the $30.00 - $50.00 per monta:.rental purchase range.

The Great er Hartford area consists of 29 separate municipalities or communities of which only f our have approved Workable Pro[;rams. The corporation has developed a pre-processed reusuable package for assistance and guidan ce of developers. This p:1ckar:;e has basic designs for two and three !)edroJm units. ~2,00(' to $3,000 per project is usually sufficient to test proposed. project's practibility . The corporation has not gone deepl y into rehabilitation .

Appendix was compiled as of January 1966. As can be seen, discrepencies exist in both land lots and acreages between the Zoning Map Analysis and the Ap~endix. This may be accounted for by zoning changes and _new· developments which have taken place since the compilation shown in the Appendix. However, this reduces the dependency which can be placed now on the compilation of figures sho-~m in the Appendix. See Summary at end of the attached Comparative Tabulations for acrea;:;es already committed; turned dovm or rejected; and planned for otner us es . Vacant areas zoned A-L (understood to be generally f or a specifically planned development) and A-2 (not generally accepted locally as suitable for low-cost housing, except for the Elderly) have not been generally included in this comparison. The vacant land in both categories is relatively small however. CONCLUSION: In a:ny event, from the attached comparison, it is quite obvious that the land currently zonac A-1 is both inadequate in quantity and U.!equitably distributed throughout the City to meet requirements of the low-income housing progra111.

A copy of the data processing listing of parcel code numbers of vacant parcels, zoning and acreage data was delivered to Steve Schwartz of Cecil Alexander's office during the latter part of April; and, also during the latter part of April, Mr. Schwartz was given access to the 400 scale maps in the Planning Department showing these vacant parcels. These maps were copied and delivered to Mr. Alexander's office prio to May l. On June 28 at a meeting of the Planning and Development Committee, ne of vacant and “under-developed” land was shown in connection vith the land use plan progress report. After this meeting, Malcoin fe) fo = Jones requested that a copy of this map showing zoning of vacant areas be provided to the Housing Resources Committee. This map was prepared by the Planning Department and delivered to Col. Jones. On July 6 this map and a preliminary analysis of areas zoned A-1 and vacant was presented to the Housing Resources Committee. The analysis showed a total of 482 acres "zoned for apartments". The apparent discrepancy between this figure and the §02 acres shown in the data processing analysis can be explained by the fact that the maps used in both couputations, although similar, were not really comparable. The map used in the Housing Resources Committee analysis was at a scale of 2,000 feet to the inch and the maps used in the data process- ing analysis were at a scale of 400 feet to the inch. Due to the small maps at a scale of 2,000 feet to the inch, accurate measurement is difficult, and, additionally, only large parcels can be shown. At 400 scale, more accurate representation and measurement are possible. Therefore, upon receipt by the Planning Department of the committee request for additional data, further detailed maps at 400 scale were prepared showing only significant vacant tracts (4 acres and larger), so that a more detailed listing of vacant land could be made. A preliminary analysis has been made by the Planning Department of each signif ESCANS tract, and the result of this analysis is presented in Appendix A to this memorandum. The maps used in the analysis are available in the Planning Department for detailed examination by interested parties. > The Planning Department agrees that the housing problem in Atlaata is one of the major problems facing the City at this time, and recommends MEMORANDUM July 21, 1967 Y 9 Page 3 hat the joint meeting of the Planning and Development Comnittee and the Housing Resources Gomnittee which has been requested be held as soon as possible. At this mecting and at other subsequent meet- gs, the City's housing policy should be examined. For example, gnificant policy decision must be made on whether the low rent using to be constructed should be of the garden apartment--medium ensity--outlying location type or whether high rise-high density- ntral area housing should be considered. Another problem is the licy of relocation in urban renewal and other treatment activ iould the displaced families and individuals be relocated in ¢ eneral area of the project or should attempts be made to relocate 2m in outlying areas? These are only a few items on which policy cisions are necessary in order to insure that the low-cost housing rogram meets the goals set for it at each of the critical time hases over the next several years. mM of op Qo Bs c Se oO 2 - rt B) ey oe eee er aie ro wed wr ow tm } oO Oo S'S
