  • Text: And Hopeful Mayor Ivan Allen of Atlanta has handed Washington the first fresh idea to emerge from ~ the smoke pall covering Detroit and the other devastated cities. Most suggestions for repairing the splintering society of the slums have been old stuff. And the antipoverty pro- grams as presently constituted have not yet succeeded, obviously, in generating much community cohesion among the poor. How. then, can programs grow out of the slums—instead of being pressed onto them—so the poor can develop a stake in their community that will hopefully discourage them from burning it down? _ Allen’s suggestion was simple, expensive, but promising. The three great needs of the urban poor are jobs, housing and education, he reasoned. Supply the first two and education can follow. So why not create jobs by building housing? * * . Set up a three-to-five-year crash program, he said. Recognize that rebuilding of the slums is of the highest national priority, so pour $20 to $30 billion of federal money per year into the job and get it done. . Tear down the slums of urban America and build back decent low-cost housing. Everybody—not just the poor—will gain by this salvage of the cities. Make it a provision of contracts with the builders that a reasonable percentage of the men they hire must be the slum dwellers themselves. Thus provide jobs (or training, and then jobs) for the jobless poor while also providing housing. Like most good ideas, Allen's proposal has the virtue of di- rectness and simplicity. It would work, if there were a national will to make it work. Certainly the nation wants something done by now; whether this Congress is bold enough to move decisively is another question. * * 7 Yet the mayor at least said something new. And he said it Monday in Washington, which is a place that needs to hear some- thing new and hopeful. The President's mix of urban programs meets some needs; but a centerpiece project of such dimension as Allen proposes should appeal to him. In the meantime, Atlanta’s low-cost housing efforts must go on. And the Ebenezer Baptist Church, of which the Martin Luther Kings, father and son, are pastors, has joined the Rev. Sam Williams’ Friendship Baptist and the Rev. William Holmes Bor- ders’ Wheat Street Baptist in setting an example that white churches might note. They formed a non-profit corporation, put up some seed money, and qualified under the federal 221-d-3 housing program to contract for the building of $1.8 million worth of de- cent, Jow-cost housing on the site of a former slum, utilizing fed- eral mortagage money at half the interest drawn by commercial loans. To the hundreds of slum poor who will be able to move into clean rooms at rents beginning at $55, this is Christianity in action.

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Earl Landers From: Dan Sweat Attached is a copy of a report prepared for Mayor Allen showing scheduled improvements or activities in four low- income areas of the city this summer, Three of these areas are encompassed within the four target areas we have selected for the proposed pilot project to coordinate city services. The City Services Coordination program would include Kirkwood, Edgewood and several other identifiable neighborhoods adjacent to or near the areas covered in the attached Mayor's report. In order that we proceed with planning and programming of the pilot project, the following recommendations are submitted. 1. Four positions should be created on a temporary basis for the period June 1 - September 1 to serve as city services coordinators in the Office of the Mayor. These coordinators would be on the salary range of Inspection Department area supervisors. They would be housed in EOA neighborhood service centers within each target neighborhood. For the proposed organizational chart see Attachment A. Mr. Landers Page Two April 25, 1967 2. The city services coordinators would be responsible for identification of city service problem areas within their target neighborhoods and for communication of these problems to the proper city department or agency. They would be familiar with community groups as well as city departments and the services they offer. 3. The overall objective would be to identify problems and take remedial action before these problems generate unnecessary trouble within the area. 4, They would be under the coordination of Johnny Robinson from the Mayor's Office. 5. Each coordinator should be provided with one clerical worker. EOA has agreed to provide some neighborhood aides to assist in identification of problems and investigation of complaints. EQOA will also provide space for a maximum of four housing code inspectors who will also be able to bring to the attention of the city services coordinators unfavorable conditions which exist and which should be corrected. 6. In communicating this proposed project to the depart- ment heads, it should be stressed that there is no intention that the city services coordinators would direct any department or departmental personnel to take any action. Once a problem is brought to the attention of the department it is up to the department to determine whether or not such action is justified and should be taken. In those cases where budgetary restrictions or legal restrictions prevent action from being taken, the city services coordinator will communicate messages to the community concerned with the problem, I would recommend approval of this project at the earliest possible date in order that we might be able to select very carefully the Mr. Landers Page Three April 25, 1967 four coordinators for this summer's program, Also we would need time to prepare complaint forms, informational material and briefing material for the coordinators and their staff assistants.

APPROPRIATIONS ATLANTA, GA. 30314 SECRETARY Sus-CoMMITTEE (HYGIENE & SANITATION) NursinG Homes & HOMES FoR AGED EDUCATION HYGIENE & SANITATION Sus-ComMMITTEE SEDUCATION) OMMON SCHOOLS House of Representatives Howse Chamber Atlanta ‘ June 2, 1967 TO: Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr. FROM: Grace T. Hamilton I am glad to know about the planned meeting for the proposed neighborhood improvements in the Nash-Bans Community. I expect to attend the meeting on June 6th and am anxious to help in any way possible on the "temporary committee" looking toward the community organization of the area. It occurred to me that there is asplendid opportunity in this instance to assemble initially a group of citizens who because of their long time relation to the are either through residence or because of economic and social interests in the area, together with elected representatives from all levels of government, to cooperatively consider what is in the best inte- rest of the community and the city as a whole. I am therefore strongly urging that all elected repre- sentatives be invited to be a part of the temporary committee as well as certain other individuals whose relation to the area you may not be aware of. I would also hope that the elected members of the citizens advisory committee for the Nash-EOA area have already thought of. For your information I am attaching the enclosed list which includes such individuals as I have been able to think of. Some of these names may have already been included in your thinking. The point I wish to make is that the initial meeting where possibilities are presented for community consi- deration should include established leadership on the basis of election whether in governmental positions or in neighborhood service organizations.
