No. o May Lo, Ly0Yy HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE NOTES 21,032 units proposed did not materialize, of which 13,764 were included in the previcus report of Jan. 15, 1969, and 7,268 additional units are listed in this report, as Lost. (The majority of these losses was due to disapprovals of sites, a large portion of which were denials of zoning petitions.) 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 requirement on small scattered sites by both Conventional and Federal assisted financing. Also Public Housing in small projects, to include small developments on scattered sites is strongly: advocated, for future development. Proposed locations for low-income housing are coordinated through the Plan. Dept. for adequacy of Community Facilities, existing or proposed. Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Department for adequacy of school facilities. The Travelers Insurance Company financed 75 new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville Urban Renewal project area under the FHA 221 d(2) insured mortgage program. Equitable made $1,000,000 available to Atlanta Mortgage Brokerage Co. for financing low-cost homes at favorable rates, Interest is still increasing in development of home ownership housing. No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50 per month, although the London Towne Houses, a 221 d(3) co-op development now under construction, is approaching this, with its one bedroom unit selling at $69 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30-$50 per month rental-purchase range, which appears to have little chance of accomplishment, without substantial governmental subsidy. Prefab distributors and conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Codes difficulties, are currently erecting very few single-family houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for which there is a strong demand and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the City Limits. Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will cost the developer not more than $1,500 per unit. A 5,000 sq. £t. lot is considered ample for this type house which should reduce land costs by 33 1/3%; most houses in this price range are currently being erected in Atlanta on R-5 lots having a minimum size of 7,500 sq. ft. Imperial Homes of Griffin, Ga., manufacturers of pre-cut sectionalized frame houses, has developed a 24'x36', 3 bedroom & bath house designed to sell, to the occupant for $8,900 to go on his land; and is developing a 4 bedroom & bath house to sell similarly for about $9,000. National Homes of Lafayatte, Ind. is erecting 200 units of pre-built, 4 bedroom, bath and $ units in Chicago and is doing the site planning and landscaping. This firm was recently successful bidder, through design competition, for construction of 600 medium and low-income housing units on the Honor Farm #1 site. The nonprofit Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation is now in business. The CACUR'S nonprofit corporation to rehabilitate existing units under 221 (h) has completed its first group of 5 houses in Lindwood Park. Vanguard Housing Corp. has obtained FHA commitment for rehabilitation of 6 units under 221 (h). Morris Brown College is another such sponsor. North West Community Forum has also filed applications for 4 projects under 221 (h) Information is welcomed as to corrections, additions or deletions of material contained in this report.

  • Text: BEDFORD PINE AREA 1, What in your estimation, is the best or most feasible approach to the prodlan or housing displaced persons? Persons displaced by governmental action must be relocated within the general ‘confines of their immediate neighborhood. Displacement of families or persons outside their neighborhood disrupts family unity and creates untold social problems. Programs which will allow gradual demolition and replacement of housing rather than wholesale demolition of neighborhoods must be established. 2. What are your views concerning temporary relocateble housing? Pros and Cons I favor temporary relocatable housing. It will help prevent disruption of neighborhoods and families, Such temporary housing must not be allowed to develop into permanent undesirable, below code housing. ¥ * 3, What position does City Eall teke with regard to relocatable housing? Then specifically the type to be used in the Eedford Pine Froject. City hall proposed and encouraged the relocatable housing demonstration in Bedford-Pine and Model Cities, a. . b 4. Wheat role will the City volay with resard to this tenporary relocatable housing? See Number 3. Atlanta Housing Authority is the City's agent for administering the urban renewal and housing program. ~ =— 5. Whet plans does City Hall have in mind with regard to the Bedford Fine area? How do these plans differ from the actual plans? The actual plans as submitted by the Atlanta Housing Authority are the plans of the City since AHA is the City's agent for housing redevelopment. 6. Whet lone range goals and vnlans are projected for the area? 7; What in your estirotion, would benefit the area the most? What are their immediate needs? ; The immediate needs in the area are in the area of providing decent housing. Parks and schools have been developed and are in operation. Economic Opportunity programs must of necessity go hand-in-hand with the development of physical facilities. . 8. Whet cormunication links does the City: have with the Bedford Pine Negro leadership? Bedford-Pine Negro leadership communicated with City Hall through the Bedford-Pine Urban Renewal Committee or Sub-Committee to the Citizens * Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal, . that by using these tenporary relocatable housing units it will help 9. Do you think ; t Encourege people to stay in the area? strengthen the neighborhood concept? Explain, Yes. People establish roots in an area and even though it might be sub- standard, it is home to them. iP me oc Tat y housing elsewhere in the future? If so What will be done with the units during the interin? a 10. Do you anticivete using the for what use and where? Yes in the Model Cities project. The redevelopment needs in this city are so great that there would always be a use for temporary housing units and there would be no interim period when these units would be allowed to stand vacant. nz churches and local stores in [4s ll, what type of relocation plans are there for retain the neignbornood? See Atlanta Housing Authority plans. \\ 12, Are you avare of any new proposals for the area, such as exgending the civic center or utilizine the area for comercial development purposes? What are City Halls views? How would you like to see the area developed? Expound. I am aware of no specific proposal for expanding the Civic Center or utilitizing the area for commercial development. The area should be primarily redeveloped for housing. We should not, however, deny the Atlanta area adequate civic facilities and the total needs of the city must be weighed with the needs of’the Bedford-Pine community in determining reuse. 13, what is the current status of the Bedford Pine project? See Atlanta Housing Authority. 14, Does the City plen to initiate any new types of low cost housing for the area? If so explain. See Atlanta Housing Authority. ait 15. What other agencies, on a local governmental level, are envolved in the planning ‘or development stages of this project? Atlanta Housing Authority and City Planning Department. + ’ s = Be L + 16, Whaat suggestions would you have for coping with the housing problem other than using the tenvorary relocatable housing? List alternatives, oo” . The Mayor's Housing Program sets forth specific goals and has provided for machinery to push housing plans. A copy of this program is attached.

  • Text: For Release: 3:00 P. M., Wednesday December 11, 1968 URBAN RENEWAL PROGRESS - 1968 REMARKS BY HOWARD OPENSHAW DIRECTOR OF REDEVELOPMENT FOR THE ATLANTA HOUSING AUTHORITY BEFORE THE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE FOR URBAN RENEWAL DECEMBER 11, 1968 In reporting to this Committee one year ago this month, I predicted that in 1968 construction totaling $26.2 million would be started on urban renewal land, including the start of construction of 1,68 dwelling units, a substantial increase over the previous year. I am happy to report that construction was actually started on improvements totaling $39.9 million, including the start of 1,033 dwelling units of which 88) dwelling units have been completed. This housing construction represents over four times the number of dwelling units started and 21 times the number of units completed the previous year. This is the first time in Atlanta's Urban Renewal Program history where housing coumtanotition exceeded the number of dwelling units demolished. I site this as a specific example of a con- scious effort on the part of the Housing Authority not only to demonstrate a . feasible relocation plan by siting the availability of housing for families being relocated by governmental action at rents people can afford - but actually to pro- vide sufficient housing for those families being displaced. This has not been the pattern of urban renewal in the past in this City or any other, a fault well taKen by critics of the Urban Renewal Program. It seems to me that we are clearly moving in the right direction. From the period December 1, 1967 to December 1, 1968, the Atlanta Housing Authority has acquired 285 parcels of land at a cost of $6.3 million. The Authority relocated 180 families, 77 individuals, and 55 business concerns from urban renewal areas, and provided housing assistance sto an additional 328 families and 98 individuals relocated as a result of other governmental action (i.e. Code Enforcement, State Highway, Board of Education, and airport expansion). During the past 12 months the Authority demolished 28) structures com- prising 8) dwelling units, and completed rehabilitation of 15) dwelling units. The Authority sold 31 parcels of land for $3.5 million and put under contract for sale an additional 21 parcels having a value of $2.6 million. Construction was begun on improvements totaling $39.9 million. These improvements include the start of 1,033 dwelling units, the Ira Hardin office building, an addition to the Marriott Motor Hotel, and improvements at Georgia State College and the Georgia Institute of Technology. Improvements totaling $11.2 million were completed in the past 12 months, including 88) dwelling units. Several other activities during this period should be noted. The Housing Authority received Federal authorization to provide 60 relocatable housing units in the Bedford-Pine Area. This was the first authorized use of relocatable housing units on urban renewal land in the country, and was in direct response to a committment made by the City to residents of the Bedford-Pine Community that only those areas ready for redevelopment would be cleared, and that every effort would be made to permit the maximum number of families to remain in the area - even while permanent housing was being constructed. Site improvements for these units is now underway, and we hope that the first relocatable housing units will be in place and ready for occupancy before the end of the year. A second item of note was the development competition by the Housing Authority of the 96 acres of Federal surplus land, forneviy U. S. Penetentiary property, made available to the City by President Johnson in December, 1967, to help meet critical urban needs. The national competition consisted of the design of an entire community, including housing for families of low and moderate income, schools, parks and shopping facilities - a community designed to encourage a harmonious social and economic mix. Five redeveloper's proposals were received and submitted for review and evaluation by a jury of five nationally recognized professionals experienced in housing development (the first time a professional jury was employed to judge improvements on urban renewal land in Atlanta). On Monday of this week, the Mayor- announced that the Atlanta Housing Authority had selected the National Homes Corporation of Lafayette, Indiana to develop the Federal surplus land. The National Homes proposal contains 600 units of housing for families of low and moderate income, shopping facilities, a 6566 center, two elementary school sites, a middle school site, and a six acre park. The redeveloper's improvements are estimated to cost $8.7 million. A third significant activity during this period was the preparation of a Neighborhood Development Program application outlining the City's urban renewal activities to be undertaken in 1969. The Neighborhood Development Program authorized by the Housing Act of 1968, is a program of urban renewal action now. The program was developed: (1) to permit planning and execution activities to be undertaken concurrently, i.e. to permit rehabilitation, clearance and redevelopment to be undertaken in specific areas, even while planning is still underway; (2) to more quickly respond to the critical urban needs of the Cities by accelerating provisions of public facilities and services; and (3) to facilitate a more effective programming and budgeting of urban renewal activities on an annual cash-needs basis, i.e. the Federal government and the City providing funds annually for urban renewal activities to be carried out in specific areas of the City. The City's Neighborhood Development Program application, filed with the Federal government on December 6, for the period January 1 through December 31, 1969 includes execution activities in three areas: Bedford-Pine, Georgia Tech II, and Model Cities, and planning activities in East Atlanta and Vine City. The application #3 = requests a Federal grant in the amount of $2.3 million. The City's share is made up of completed non-cash grants-in-aid in the amount of $10.8 million. Looking ahead to 1969, the Atlanta Housing Authority will continue its ‘urban renewal activities in 8 existing projects and begin planning and execution activities in the five areas included in the City's Neighborhood Development Program. These urban renewal activities encoripass 5,700 acres of the City - a sizable task indeed. In addition, the Authority estimates that construction will be started on improvements totaling $59.7 million on urban renewal land in 1969. These improve- ments include 1,037 dwelling units, the Butler Street elementary school (which will _ permit the Authority to close out Atlanta's first urban renewal project), the stadium motel, elementary schools in Rockdale and Thomasville, improvements at Georgia State College and Georgia Tech, and the enclosed mall shopping center in West End. As we stand on the threshold of a new day, a new year, Atlanta shares the same fate as every major City in America. How can the poor be lifted from poverty? What fate befalls our Cities? In our affluent society, it is unthinkable that millions of Americans remain ill-housed; that affluent whites continue fleeing to the suburbs, leaving our urban core to the poor and the black; that spreading slums and blight are leading us not to decay but destruction, while in many cities, officials remain insensitive to the plight of the pegple. The bell continues to toll. Time is running out. We will survive only as we succeed in responding to the desperate needs of our people, in terms of pro- viding opportunities for housing, education, and employment; in terms of improving the quality of urban life; in terms of lifting the hopes and aspirations of the poor and the depressed; in terms of involving people in their destiny. As we face a new year, this is our choice, our opportunity, our challenge.

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison The Honorable George Romney Secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Secretary: In November, 1966, we began in Atlanta a concentrated effort to stimulate the development of 16, 800 units of low and moderate income housing to provide safe and sanitary shelter for thousands of less fortunate citizens, This effort, called ''The Mayor's Housing Resources Program!" was supported by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, private banks, developers, churches, civic groups and individual citizens at all levels. This program has produced results. As of this date, 21, 013 of the five year goal of 16, 800 units have been completed, are under construction, or in planning, The most recent status report is attached for your information, Within the next few weeks, the single most significant development generated by our programs will be placed under construction. It is the East Lake Meadows turnkey project, which is the largest turnkey public housing development in America with comprehensive community facilities. Because of the significance of this undertaking and because it embodies so many of the aspects of community housing action which you so magnificently support, all of us in Atlanta - City Hall, the builders, our housing officials, and citizens in general - feel that we want to share the beginning of this project with you. Secretary Romney Page Two July 25, 1969 “ I have been asked to issue you an official invitation from all of us to inaugurate construction of this most important housing development for poor people. If your schedule will permit you to come to Atlanta in the next few weeks after August 21, we shall schedule the ceremonies for your convenience. It would also give us the opportunity to show you some of the operational components of Atlanta's Model Cities program. Highlights in the development of the East Lake Meadows Project will give you some idea of its importance not only in relation to the solution of urban problems of Atlanta but perhaps in other cities. The land on which this project is located was once a golf course owned by prominent conservative businessmen in Atlanta, They sold it to the March Company, a private development company, and supported difficult rezoning in an area which had hitherto had no public housing. City officials, local Housing Authority, and the Regional Housing Authority, together with local business people, civic groups, communications media, were all involved. The project includes 800 living units, 150 for elderly, shopping center, community and health facilities, city park, recreation areas and the dedication of school sites, An example of community support involves the four leading banks in Atlanta who formed a consortium to finance the interim construction costs in an effort to assist in the solution of Atlanta's housing problems for its low-income citizens. This develop- ment represents the highest type of cooperation among city, business, government interagency planning and implementation - a model community effort, Your presence here on this occasion, therefore, would serve to give strength to the solution of the many difficult problems we still face in Atlanta and to spotlight one of the landmark public housing developments in America. Those of us who are faced with the community level problems of leadership are thankful that you are in the crucial position at HUD. Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor iAJr:fy cc: Mr. Edward Baxter

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison The Honorable George Romney Secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Secretary: In November, 1966, we began in Atlanta a concentrated effort to stimulate the development of 16, 800 units of low and moderate income housing to provide safe and sanitary shelter for thousands of less fortunate citizens, This effort, called ''The Mayor's Housing Resources Program" was supported by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, private banks, developers, churches, civic groups and individual citizens at all levels. . This program has produced results. As of this date, 21, 013 of the five year goal of 16, 800 units have been completed, are under construction, or in planning. The most recent status report is attached for your information, Within the next few weeks, the single most significant development generated by our programs will be placed under construction, It is the East Lake Meadows turnkey project, which is the largest turnkey public housing development in America with comprehensive community facilities. Because of the significance of this undertaking and because it embodies so many of the aspects of community housing action which you so magnificently support, all of us in Atlanta - City Hall, the builders, our housing officials, and citizens in general - feel that we want to share the beginning of this project with you. Secretary Romney Page Two July 25, 1969 “ I have been asked to issue you an official invitation from all of us to inaugurate construction of this most important housing development for poor people. If your schedule will permit you to come to Atlanta in the next few weeks after August 21, we shall schedule the ceremonies for your convenience. It would also give us the opportunity to show you some of the operational components of Atlanta's Model Cities program. Highlights in the development of the East Lake Meadows Project will give you some idea of its importance not only in relation to the gohatioan of urban problems of Atlanta but perhaps in other cities, The land on which this project is located was once a golf course owned by prominent conservative businessmen in Atlanta. They sold it to the March Company, a private development company, and supported difficult rezoning in an area which had hitherto had no public housing. City officials, local Housing Authority, and the Regional Housing Authority, together with local business people, civic groups, communications media, were all involved. The project includes 800 living units, 150 for elderly, shopping center, community and health facilities, city park, recreation areas and the dedication of school sites. An example of community support involves the four leading banks in Atlanta who formed a consortium to finance the interim construction costs in an effort to assist in the solution of Atlanta's housing problems for its low-income citizens. This develop- ment represents the highest type of cooperation among city, business, government interagency planning and implementation - a model community effort. Your presence here on this occasion, therefore, would serve to give strength to the solution of the many difficult problems we still face in Atlanta and to spotlight one of the landmark public housing developments in America. Those of us who are faced with the community level problems of leadership are thankful that you are in the crucial position at HUD.

M. B. Satterfield, AHA direc- tor, wrote EOA to ask that fund- ing be delayed until an investiga- tion could be made into activi- ‘ties of Legal Aid which Satter- ‘field called a ‘disruptive Influ- ence on the public housing pro- gram and serves only to cause , friction in the community.” | The board of directors of EOA, on the recommendation of member Jesse Hill, approved the $326,695 budget—$271,939 in federal funds. “It is inappropriate not to move ahead,” board Chairman Boisfeuillet Jones said. He said he would “honor the complaint to the extent of looking into its merits.” Robert Dobbs, another board member, also urged the request for funds, despite the AHA let- ter. “The housing authority ought to look at itself. It has some problems itself.” Jones said he had received an anonymous call several months ago about Michael Padnos, director of Legal Aid. Jones said the caller threatened Jones un- less he got rid of Padnos. “That’s the last I heard of it,” Jones said with a laugh. Satterfield’s letter said that the AHA was withholding ‘‘en- dorsement of this application at this time, pending clarification of certain actions taken by Legal Aid which affect the At- lanta Housing Authority and the community.” Satterfield’s letter said Pad- nos had made “serious general allegations concerning Atlanta Housing Authority policy and 12-14-68 A.c, conduct of activities.’’ But, the letter said, when called on for specific facts behind the allega- tions, ‘‘Legal Aid has refused to furnish such facts ... That re- fusal can be documented.” Padnos’ objections generally were that the AHA operates “arbitrarily.” He said he re- fused to give names of those]. complaining because of the law- yer-client relationship. Jones explained that the AHA had been informed of the appli- eation for legal services, but solely because they were. an in- terested party, not a holder of a veto. KIDNEY PANIED SIGNATS Gr" qi pi nh G (t Ri pa dr The SOA board also approved the Head Start program, which includes a request for $516,649 in reation, as DAN SWE 7 one federal funds, and_summer rec- including $620,000 in federal junds. :

M., Wednesday December 11, 1968 I URBAN RENEWAL PROGRESS - 1968 REMARKS BY HOWARD OPENSHAW DIRECTOR OF REDEVELOPMENT FOR THE ATLANTA HOUSING AUTHORITY BEFORE THE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE FOR URBAN RENEWAL DECEMBER 11, 1968 �In reporting to this Committee one year ago this month, I predicted that in 1968 cons truction totaling $26.2 million would be started on urban renewal land, i ncluding the start of const ruction of 1,468 dwelling units, a subst antial increase over the previous year . I am happy to r eport that construction wa s ~ct ual y §tart §d on 1mprovement g t otali ng $39 ,9 mi lli.on, including the st art of ,. 1,033 dwelli ng ·units of which 884 dwelling units have been compl et ed. This housing construct ion r e pr e sents over fo ur t imes t he number of dwelling unit ~ started and 21 times t he number of units compl eted t he previ ous year . This i s t he first time in Atlanta 's Urban Renewal Program history wher e hous ing construction exceeded the number of dwelling uni t s demolished. I site this as a specif ic exampl e of a con- scious ef for t on the par t of the Housi ng Authority not only to demonstrat e a fe asibl e reloc ation plan by sj ting the availabilit y of housing fo r f amilies being reloca ted by governmental ac tion at r ents peopl e c an affo rd - but actually t o provide sufficient housing f or those f amil ies being di splaced . This has not been the pat t ern of urban r enewal in t he pa st in t hi s City or any other, a f ault well t aken by crit ic s of the Urban Renewal Program . It seems to me t hat we are clearly moving in the r ight di rection. From t he period Dec ember 1, 1967 t o December 1, 1968, t he Atlant a Hous i ng Authori t y has acquired 285 parcels of l and at a cost of $6. J million . Authority r eloc at ed 180 f ami lies , 77 individual s , and The 55 bus i ness concerns f rom urban renewal ar eas , and provided hous i ng assi st ance ·to an addit io nal 328 f amil i e s and 98 indi viduals r el ocat ed a s a r esult of other governmental acti on (i .e . Code Enforc ement, Stat e Hi ghway, Board of Educ at i on, and airport expa nsi on ) . During the past 12 mont hs the Authority demol ished 284 s t r uctures comprising 484 dwelling units , and compl et ed r ehabi lit ation of 154 dwel l ing units . - 1 - �The Authority sold 31 parcels of land for $3.5 million and put under contract for sale an additional 21 parcels having a value of $ 2.6 million. I Construction was begun on improvements totaling $39.9 million. These tmprovements include the star~ of 1,033 dwelling units, the Ira Hardin office building, an addition to :the Marriott Motor Hotel, and improvements at Georgia State College and the Georgia Institute of Technology. Improvements totaling $11.2 million were completed in the past 12 months, including 884 dwelling units. Several other activities during this period should be noted. The Housing Authority received Federal authorization to provide 60 relocatable housing units in the Bedford-Pine Area. This was the first authorized use of relocatable housing units on urban renewal land in the country, and was in direct respons e to a corrnnittment made by the City to residents of the Bedford-Pine Community that only those areas ready for rede velopment would be cleared, and that every effort would be made to permit the maximum number of f amilie s to remain in the area - even while permanent housing was being constructed. Site improvements fo r these units is now underway, and we ho pe that the first relocatable housing units will be in place and ready for occupancy befo re the end of the ye ar. A seco nd item of note wa s the development compe tit io n by the Housing Author ity of t he 96 acres of Federal surplus l and, fo rmerly U. S. Penete nt i ary pro perty, made ava ilabl e to the Cit y by President Jo hnson i n December , 1967, to help meet cr i t ic al urban needs . The natio na l competition consisted of the design of an entire community, i nc l uding housing f or f amilies of l ow and moderate i ncome, school s, parks and shopping fac i lities - a community designed to encourage a - 2 - �harmonious social and economic mix . Five r edevelo per 's proposals were r eceived and submitted f or r eview and evaluation by a jury of five nationally reco gnized professionals experienced in housing development (the first time a professional - jury was employed to j udge improvements on urban renewal land in Atlanta). On Monday of this week, t he Mayor- announced that the Atlanta Housi ng Authority had selected the National Home s .Corporation of Lafayette, Indiana to develop the Federal. surplus l and. The National Homes propo sal contains 600 units of housing for familie s of low and moder ate income , shoppi ng f acilitie s, a town center, t wo elementary s chool sites , a middle s chool site , and a six acre park . The redeveloper's improvements are est imated to cost $8,7 million. A third signific ant act ivity during this period wa s the preparation of a Nei ghborhood Devel opment Program appl i c ation out lining the Ci t y ' s ur ban renewal activitie s to be undertaken in 1969 . The Neighborhood Development Pr ogram author i zed by t he Housing Act of 1968, is a program of urban renewal action now. The program wa s developed : (1) to permit pl anning and executio n activi t ies t o be undertaken concµr rentl y , i. e . to permi t r ehabi litation, clearance and redevelopment to be undert aken i n spec i f ic area s , even while planning i s still underway ; ( 2) to mor e quickly r espond to the critical ur ban needs of t he Cities by accel erat i ng provi si ons of publi c fa ciliti es and s ervices; and ( 3 ) to fa ci litate a more effect ive pro gramming and budgeting of urban r enewal activit i e s on an annual cash- needs ba sis , i. e . the Feder al government and the City provi ding funds annually f or ur ban r enewal activities to be c arried out in specific areas of t he Ci ty. The City ' s Nei ghborhood Devel opment Program applicati on, f i l ed with the Federal government on December 6, for the peri od J anuary 1 t hrough December 31 , 1969 includes executi on acti vities in t hree areas : Bedford-Pi ne , Georgia Tech I I, and Model Ci tie s , and planni ng activities in East Atlant a and Vine City . - 3 - The appl ication �requests a Federal grant in the amount of $24.3 million. The City's share is made up of completed non-cash grants-in-aid in the amount of $10.8 million. Looking ahead to 1969, the Atlanta Housing Authority will continue its · urban renewal activities in 8 existing projects and begin planning and execution activities in the five are a s included in the City's Neighborhood Development Program. These urban renewal activities encompass 5,700 acres of the City - a sizable task indeed. In addition, the Authority estimates that construction will be started on improvements to taling $59.7 million on urban renewal land in 1969. These improve- ments include 1,037 dwelling units, the Butler Street elementary school (which will permit the Authority t o close out Atlanta's first urban renewal project), t he stadium motel, elementar y schools in Roc kdale and Thoma sville , improvements at Geo rgia State College and Georgia Tech, and the enclosed mall shopping c enter in We st End.

Dear Mr. Secretary: In November, 1966, we began in Atlanta a concentrated effort to stimulate the development of 16, 800 units of low and moderate income housing to provide safe and sanitary shelter for thousands of less fortunate citizens. This effort, called ''The Mayor's Housing Resources Program!" was supported by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, private banks, developers, churches, civic groups and individual citizens at all levels. This program has produced results. As of this date, 21, 013 of the five year goal of 16, 800 units have been completed, are under construction, or in planning. The most recent status report is attached for your information. Within the next few weeks, the single most significant development generated by our programs will be placed under construction, It is the East Lake Meadows turnkey project, which is the largest turnkey public housing development in America with comprehensive community facilities, Because of the significance of this undertaking and because it embodies so many of the aspects of community housing action which you so magnificently support, all of us in Atlanta - City Hall, the builders, our housing officials, and citizens in general - feel that we want to share the beginning of this project with you.

The Atlanta Housing Re- sources Committee voted Thurs- day to urge the Community Chest of Metropolitan Atlanta Ine. to provide funds for emer- gency temporary housing for displaced persons. And the committee, headed by architect Cecil Alexander and including citizens appointed by the mayor, decided to explore the problem itself on a priority basis. The Community Chest’s exec- ufive committee meets Friday to act on requests of member agencies. HRC members noted that the | Salvation Army provides emer- gency housing for men and women, but not families. The housing group expressed Specific concern for the some 300 families that are to be dis- placed from housing owned by the J: P. Stevens & Co. Inc. plant, which has closed down. Various groups such as the Atlanta Real Estate Board, the Atlanta Housing Authority and the Community Relations Com- mission have been approached by Economie Opportunity At- lanta in order to find assistance, but so far in vain. The plant is on Marietta ireet, near Ashby Street and the families are to be displaced late this summer. The HRC also voted to invite all the candidaies for mayor to a future meeting to give views on providing heusing for the low-income families, Col.
