Once the application form has been completed, an applicant shall be given a number which indicates his chronalogd cal place on the waiting list for the size apartment mecessary for his family, unless on the face of the application the family is ineligible because of excess income or is ineligible because the applicant lives in decent housing and pays a rent he can afford.

The Authority may verify income by communicating with an applicant's employers, with the Department of Family and Children's Services, or with other income sources. (a) If the Authority determines that despite the statement given on the application form the person or family is ineligible for public housing because of excess income or no need, the family must be notified in writing within 30 days following the date of the application of their ineligibility and the detailed reasons for it. If the household unit is held to be ineligible and wishes to challenge this determination, a hearing shall be afforded. This hearing shall comply with the provisions of Part III hereof. An applicant who demands a hearing may not be removed from the waiting list until the Hearing Panel determines the question of eligibility. (b) Any applicant not notified that he is ineligible within 30 days after the date of the application is deemed to be eligible, and thereafter the Authority may not challenge his eligibility unless there is a substantial change in the income of the family or the composition of the household unit, or the Authority can demonstrate that the applicant has moved to decent housing at a rent he can afford.

  • Text: We do not consider it necessary or desirable for the County to set Gp an Authority for low-cost housing, as the Atlanta Housing Authority already has the right to acquire land, build and operate low-cost housing within an area extending 10 miles peyond the City limits of Atlanta. Low-cost housing should be built near public transportation, publicly-supported hospitals and health facilities, and where, water, sewers and police protection are available. The Commissioners deplore the Mayor's lack of knowledge of the County's massive programs to aid the unfortunate. 42% of Fulton County's income is spent on County-wide welfare, health, hospitalization, juveniles, etc.; although 86% of those who benefit from this are residents of the City. 82% of the County's income is from property tax. We have no other source of any consequence. For the Mayor to say that we do not recognize our responsi- bility is simply a misstatement of the facts. (For the sake of clarity on this important issue we respectfully request our entire statement be used.) Walter M. Mitchell, Chairman ‘Jas. H. Aldredge, Vice-~chairman Charlie Brown # #

I was glad to see that you had the chance to stop by. From all we have heard, it was successful in every respect. Your ideas and assistance from the beginning were very helpful, and we certainly are appreciative. Jack Delius was very cooperative and the Showmobile worked out very well. Also, Superintendent Royal with the Police Traffic Division worked with us in handling traffic problems in the area in an efficient manner. The Atlanta Jaycees and myself appreciate your assistance in help- ing make the Political Rally a success. You may be interested to know that some film from the Rally was shown on the NBC Today Show on October 7. We, of course, were very glad to hear this. Thanks again, and if we can work with you in any way in the future, please let us know. Cordiatly. // [iba Alfred K. Barr Research Manager da

Approved by HAA March 17, 1969 (Included in this figure). Total Public Housing Potential *Figures in ( ) in this column are included in figure above not in ( ). May LO, LyOY 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. ft. 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 nost feasible approach to the jp; 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. 7 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 relocatable 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 Bedford Pine Project. City hall proposed and encouraged the relocatable housing demonstration in Bedford-Pine and Model Cities. ‘, t 4, What role will the City voley with regard to this tenporary relocatable nousing? See Number 3. Atlanta Housing Authority is the City's agent for administering the urban renewal and housing program, ~ 5. Wnet plens 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 long range goals and nlans are projected for the area? 7. What in your ectinotion, would benefit the area the most? What are their irased ia needs? e Cc 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. . e ’ 1 8. Whet cormunication links does the City have with the beat erd Pine Neuro 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. 9. Do you think that by using these temporary relocatable housing units it will help strengthen the neighborhood concept? Encourage people to svay in the area? Explain. Yes.

ANN M, 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 TAJr:fy ec: Mr. Edward Baxter
