GLENN DIRECTOR OF REDEVELOPMENT 624 HURT BUILDING GEORGE R. SANDER ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 TECHNICAL DIRECTOR JACKSON 3-6074 September 6, 1968 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Subject: Bedford Pine UR Redevelopment Project Dear Mayor Allen: As was stated in our Conference, this project area, sometimes called Buttermilk Bottoms, contains some of the worst housing in Atlanta. Much of the worst housing was removed in clearing the land for the relief sewer and the City Auditorium. The condition of the remainder has been ageravated by the long period of waiting for Federal approval to execute the Project. In an effort to give some relief, the following actions have been taken: (1) The Housing Code Department, working with our Project employees, have made and are making inspections of the buildings which appear to be in the worst condition. (2) As complaints are received from tenants; or representatives of tenants, the structures in which they live are also inspected. (3) The Housing Code Enforcement Department notifiesthe owner of the work which must be performed in order to correct those conditions which are an immediate threat to health or safety. Our Project employees go to the owners and attempt to persuade them to make the corrections immediately. This approach is achieving a large measure of success. (4) In those cases where the owner will not correct the conditions, the structure is placarded and the owner is asked to vacate the building and board it up. (5) In the cases of structures becoming vacant, the structures are immediately placarded so that they cannot be reoccupied, and the owner is required to board it up. All other vacant structures have been boarded up, and when evidence of someone breaking into the structure becomes apparent, the structures are reboarded. We believe that as a temporary measure the above procedure is working. A meeting of the Community Relations Commission to hear grievances was held last night, and no grievances related to this situation were voiced. The real solution, which should be achieved immediately, is for this Project to be in execution. Documents are pending in Washington awaiting approval. Mr. Hummel and his staff seem to be agonizing over a decision to proceed with approval due to the large amount of Federal Capital Grant required by the project. The City's one-third share of Net Project Cost appears to be in Sight due to the credits for the City Auditorium and the new C. W. Hill School. It seems to be the desire of the Federal Agency for this Project to be converted to the new Neighborhood Development Program. This would permit funding of the Federal and local shares on an annual basis, thus removing the need for a large Federal Grant reservation. Unfortunately, procedures for this conversion have not yet been written. We recommend and urge that this Project be converted to the Neighborhood Development Program within the next three to four months, particularly since the City's share is already available and established through the above mentioned improvements. It is important, however, that the Project, as now constituted, be approved without delay, with the conversion to take place later. We suggest that a letter similar to the suggested draft attached be mailed to Mr. Hummel over your signature. In addition to the letter, a personal telephone call from you to Mr. Hummel, pointing out that this is an area of acute racial tensions, and that approval is urgent, should be helpful. Sincerely yours, KE lie Lester H. Persells Associate Executive Director Enclosure

' I have recently made several tours of this area and find the structures in an extremely bad and often dangerous state of repair. In reviewing this with the City's Building Inspector, he has advised me of the practical difficulties that he has in requiring a property owner to make a substantial investment when it is anticipated that the property will soon be acquired as a result of urban renewal. The City already has expended over $1,600,000 of its own funds in this area to acquire street and sewer rights of way as well as properties of those persons who, if was felt, were suffering a severe hardship because of the impending urban renewal activity. It is now obvious that every resident and property owner in this area is suffering a hardship and the City Comptroller has advised me that, even if funds were available, there is considerable risk involved in advancing funds for any further acquisitions that are outside letter of consent areas. This is because of the rule that requires us to accept the amount we paid, or the appraised value, whichever is lower, at the time we eventually resell the property to the project. Iam cognizant of the fact that the combination of the original Buttermilk Bottoms, R-91, Project with the Bedford-Pine Project, R-101, Project, Mr. Baxter Page Two August 6, 1968 after we had received Part I approval on the original project, may have caused some problems and delays that might not otherwise have occurred.

Cook 3h - 10th St. N. E. Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Rodney: M. 8. SATTERFIELD EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND SECRETARY LESTER H. PERSELLS ASSOCIATE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR CARLTON GARRETT DIRECTOR OF FINANCE GILBERT H. BOGGS DIRECTOR OF HOUSING HOWARD OPENSHAW DIRECTOR OF REDEVELOPMENT GEORGE R. SANDER TECHNICAL DIRECTOR Your letter of October 11 concerning low-rent public housing and the approaches which you feel the Housing Authority should take have led to a restudy of the current situation and the future course of action with respect to the development of high and low-density housing. The overall objective for housing in Atlanta is contained in the Com- munity Improvement Program study as adopted by the Board of Aldermen. As restated by you, it is: "Place greater and intensified emphasis on creating higher density (high-rise} housing and preserving and promoting additional single family dwellings; garden type apartments must be de- ' emphasized in the future development and redevelopment of Atlanta." Our studies indicate, and we believe this to be implicit in the CIP Study, that housing for higher income families should be largely in high-rise and Single family structures, and that housing for low-income families should be largely in garden type apartments and high-rise for the elderly structures. Though we know of no study which indicates the extent of need and the degree of acceptability of high-rise structures by elderly low-income families in Atlanta, our experience, on the whole, has been favorable. The Housing Authority is, therefore, placing very considerable emphasis on this type of housing even though the Federal program is de-emphasizing elderly housing at the present. We referred your letter to the Regional Housing Assistance Office with a request for their comments. We are attaching a copy of their letter and a copy of HUD Circular of 9/18/68 which also relates to these matters. z Mr. Hanson's letter clearly states the position of the Federal Agency with respect to the low-income housing program. =? = Wehave also reviewed much of the literature concerning the development of plarmed communities and neighborhoods. In addition to this, we have discussed such developments with developers and planners of national and international stature. The general consensus is that a desirable neighborhood is one that contains a reasonable cross-section of family sizes and income groups. Our observation is that in Atlanta most of the privately developed housing con- Sists of one and two bedroom units, except for higher-income single family residences. There is apparently a very great need for a large number of 3, h & 5 bedroom units for lower income families. We have attached a listing of the low-rent public housing projects in Atlanta, giving data on apartmeris by bedroom size. Please note that the older projects included no four or five bedroom apartments, and were heavily weighted toward efficiency and one bedroom units. The more recent developments have been in- creasingly weighted toward apartments with a larger number of bedrooms. Your letter requested certain statistical information with respect to one and two person families. As of June 30, 1968, we were serving 2,345 one person families. Of these, 1,926 are elderly (62 years and over}, and the remainder consist of handicapped persons, widows or widowers whose spouses have deceased during their tenancy, and a very few single persons displaced by Urban Renewal or other governmental activities. In low-rent public housing are also 1,972 two person families, of which 202 are families having no minors and who are neither elderly nor disabled. We have included a listing showing the projects in which these two person families live. Because of the great demand for admission to low-rent public housing, which stays fully occupied with an average waiting list of approximately 1,500 applications, it is clear that the family sizes accommodated in low-rent housing is controlled by the size apartments which have been built, and, as mentioned above, the early program was heavily weighted toward the smaller size apartments. In the light of the foregoing, it would appear that the policies being followed by the Housing Authority in the construction of new low-rent public housing is the proper course of action, and, in the light of the current laws and regulations, achieves to the maximum degree possible the objectives which you advocate. With respect to the Bedford-Pine Project, GA. R-lO1, and the public housing presently planned for that project, we believe that full consideration has been given to the objectives outlined in your letter and to the objectives of the project as agreed in meetings with the project residents. We enclose an analysis of one and two person families now living in the Bedford Pine Project area. Our past experience indicates that most of the 148 in- dividuals will insist on being self-relocated for a variety of reasons such as contemplated marriage, illegal occupations, alcoholism. Most of the elderly and handicapped will probably move into public housing. Of the 223 two person families, most will be satisfactorily relocated by our staff, and it is our hope that most of those eligible for public housing will take advantage of their opportunity. It would appear that the public housing for the elderly planned for this area will accommodate all those who are likely to move in, and will leave a small surplus. The Project Advisory Committee, with whom this matter has been discussed, feels strongly that the very limited land area available for residential reuse should be devoted to housing which will serve the people living in the area. The 353 apartments, of which 1)9 will be for elderly, is designed to accomplish this. We are attaching a letter from the Project Advisory Committee stating their feelings in this matter. We recommend and urge that these 353 apartments be constructed in the apartment sizes presently planned. The constructive approach which you are taking to this matter is greatly appreciated, and we appreciate also the thoughtful and constructive policies which you and the Policy Committee present for the guidance of the Urban _ Renewal program.

April 15, 1968 IN REPLY REFER TO: 3CP Mr. Wayne Moore, Jr. Coordinator Metropolitan Atlanta Council of Local Governments 900 Glenn Building Atlante, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Moore: Subject: Urban Planning Assistance Program Funding One Areawide Planning Agency per Metropolitan Area This office is in receipt of notification from our Washington office that it is the present departmental policy to support only one areawide agency per metropolitan area. The reasons why grants should not be made to two agencies, as is the case in the Atlanta metropolitan area, as set forth by the Washington office are: 1. Lack of necessity. There is no distinction in the 701 Program between Organizations of Public Officials and metropolitan planning commissions with regard to eligible work. Although Section 701(g) and Planning Agency Letter #50 emphasize coordination of governmental regulations and services, such studies were eligible before the enactment of 701(g). 2. Value to the community of a single areawide agency. Having one ereawide agency responsible for developing and coordinating multi- jurisdictional plans, programs and policies on all fronts - social, physical, economic, health, administrative, etc., - is of ultimate benefit to the community. It reduces confusion on the part of elected officials and the people as to where this responsibility rests, and it reduces divisive competition between agencies. Specific 7Ol-assisted work items can be subcontracted to other agencies, but the legal responsibility should lie with the central agency. 3. Conservation of scarce people and dollars. There is a serious shortage of competent public administrators and high-level professional people to fill top staff positions on these agencies. HUD should avoid generating unnecessary additional demand for such personnel. Also, grant funds are scarce. Again, we should avoid creating unnecessary additional demand. hk. Federal policy or coordination in mlti-jurisdictional sreas. The multiplicity of federal and state assistance programs to urban areas requires that these programs be coordinated eat the metropolitan or regional level. President Johnson has called for such coordination, and the Bureau of the Budget has laid out guidelines in Circular A-80. it is unlikely that funding two areawide agencies in the same area through 701 would be in the spirit of these executive proncuncements. 5. Conflicting plans and programs, Dual agencies provide no mechanism for resolving inconsistent plans and programs which likely will be developed by each agency. A policy of dual grants opens the door for serious disputes in the future over the proper role of each agency. We heve been advised also not to accept further applications from two areawide egencies in the same metropolitan area without clearance of such action with the Washington office. It is our interpretation of the information et hand and from discussions with Washington office personnel that the department does not discourage the ereation of two areawide agencies, but that, in the future, it will receive and fund applications from only one such agency. We understand that one areawide agency may file an application for the work program of the second- agency and contract the work back to it. in view of the current relationship existing between Metropolitan Atlanta Council of Local Governments and Atlanta Region Metropolitan Planning Commission, consideration should be given eat an early date as to the future organizational arrangements for submittal of ae administration of UPA applications, We will be pleased to meet with representatives of both agencies as may be required, Sincerely yours, J : i | Th /] {/ Hs, J oa hs ity) (fit td (KS LY [Ut =e dif x, Frederick smith’ Assistant Regional Administrator Program Coordination and Services Division

C. 20410 2 2a30 we OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR RENEWAL AND HOUSING ASSISTANCE TO: Local Authorities Regional Administrators Assistant Regional Administrators for Housing Assistance FROM: Don Hummel mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm memes SUBJECT: Families With Children to be Located in Low-Rise Buildings The Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (Section 15(11)) specifies that "except in the case of housing predominantly for the elderly, ... , the Secretary shall not approve high-rise elevator projects for families with children unless he makes a determination that there is no practical alternative." This prohibition applies to projects placed under Annual Contributions Contract on or after August 1, 1968. It does not apply to a project in this category if the Regional Administrator makes a finding that, prior to August 1, 1968, development of the project had reached a stage which would make it impractical to require the Local Authority to change its housing program. Pending experience with the above-cited provision of the statute, the following policies are established to assure compliance with the legislation: 1. Dwellings for families with children shall be provided in structures which do not exceed three stories in height. 2. Projects proposed for families with children shall be designed not to exceed a net dwelling density of 45 per acre nor a net building coverage in excess of 35 percent. The Regional Administrator shall make the required finding as to whether there is "no practical alternative" under Section 15(11) at the earliest stage. Such a finding may be made under the following circumstances: (Cont'd) a. Compliance with the limitation at the selected site would result in room costs exceeding the statutory limits, and there are no other acceptable sites available, or b. Current land value of the site proposed and the going construction cost produce an average development cost per family dwelling which is unacceptably high in comparison with current costs of sale or rental housing for family dwellings of the same size and character in other resi- dential neighborhoods within the local area, and other sites cannot be obtained, or c. The housing is being leased by the Local Authority for family occupancy on a short-term basis, and there is no housing available which satisfies the policies established above for family dwellings. A finding of "no practical alternative" on the basis of any other circum- stances requires the approval of the Assistant Secretary for Renewal and Housing Assistance. In those instances where the Regional Administrator makes a finding pursuant to the provisions of this Circular, a statement setting forth the basis for such finding shall accompany the Annual Contributions Contract list submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Renewal and Housing Assistance.

DEPUTY COMPTROLLER September 12, 1968 Mr..Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Director Governmental Liaison City Hall Dear Dan: We have reviewed the amended application for the Rockdale Urban Redevelopment Project R-21 which was approved by the Board of Aldermen on September 3, 1968. Basically, we are in agreement with the proposed amendment, however, there are certain factors we feel should be taken into consideration and brought to light at this time. This amendment results in additional cost to the City of Atlanta of $169,369.00. Of this amount $102,960.00 is attributable to increases in administrative costs ($30,360) and interests on temporary loans ($72,600). The major portion of the increases are due solely to the extension of the project execution period by 36 months. It is our understanding that this extension in the project execution period principally results from the reluctance of the FHA to approve the release of construction funds over a short period of time. They apparently have some doubt about the eco- nomic feasibility of this type of project and believe that by staging the project some degree of the risk can be removed. However, Since this extension results in an increase in Federal Government costs of more than $200,000.00 in addition to the $169,000.00 increase in the City's share, it would seem apparent that a reduction in the period of this extension would benefit all parties involved. Perhaps proper channeling of this cost information might result in a review of the risk supposedly involved and a prompter release of funds. September 12, 1968 Page 2 We are in no way objecting to the project amendment and realize that there are certain Local Grant-in-Aids that might also delay completion of the project. However, a shortening of the project by even 12 to 24 months should result in substantial savings while still allowing a reasonable period for completion. Any assistance you can give us in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Very truly yours, Ob wt. £8 Charles L. Davis Comptroller CLD: es

Parham Executive Administrator December 9, 1968 Mr. M. B. Satterfield Executive Director Atlanta Housing Authority 824 Hurt Building Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Satterfield: We wish to thank you for sending representatives to the meeting of the Central Citizens Advisory Committee of EOA on November 19. The meeting was very helpful to us and creating improved understanding of some of the policies of the Housing Authorities. At that meeting, representatives of the Regional Office of HUD, Housing Assistance Section, read to the group from a "circular" dated 3/22/68 which was trarsmitted to local Housing Authorities from Washington HUD (Mr. Don Hummel) in regard to "social goals for public housing." Mr. Hummel indicated that as a matter of national policy, urgent and major social objectives included: More attention to resident's dignity, privacy, and personal safety. Special attention should be given to the elimi- nation of unnecessary rules and regula- tions. Leadership to achieve better and more coordinated social services for project tenants. Increased training and employment of ten- ants in project management. The development of equitable systems for handling grievances. Greatly expanded participation of tenants in project management affairs and programs j designed to strengthen the self-sufficiency of tenants. Mr. M. B. Satterfield Page two December 9, 1968 Mr. Hummel's directive indicated that national and regional offices of HUD ~ should give attention to these matters, but stated that "it is the local Housing Authorities who will make the goals a reality. It is they who mist examine their own operations and make the changes called for by their findings." He recommended immediate review of the following: The raising of income limits where they have substantially fallen behind changes in the comnunity. The liberalizing of the definition of income with the respect to the income of minors. The adjusting of rental policies and require- ments for the examination of tenants to mini- mize the difference between public housing and normal real estate practices. The use of the statutory authority to con- tinue in occupancy an over-income family when it is unable to find good housing in a suitable neighborhood. The liberalizing of regulations limiting the number of employees who may live ina project. The adoption of a simple and equitable lease. The simplification of rules and regulations. The provision of adequate meacures for safety and security of tenants. The adoption of procedures where tenants, either individually or in a group, may a be given a hearing on questions relating to Authority policies and practices, either in general, or in relation to an individual or family. The upgrading of levels of maintenance and the appearance of buildings and grounds with the maximum tenant participation and, where possible, tenant employmant. Mr. M. Page three December 9, 1968 B. Satterfield Among other things Mr. Hummel also suggested that local Housing Authorities: Develop a two way communication with tenants concerning basic policy; afford the tenants full opportunity to organize, including the provision of meeting rooms and access to tenant lists and bulletin boards. Give residents the opportunity to parti- cipate in the determination of management policies and practices, subject to géneral principles of HAA, such as rental and occu- pancy policies; rules and regulations; charges for breakage and damage; eviction policies, etc. The Central Citizens Advisory Committee would like to ask what action the Atlanta Housing Athority has taken or contemplates taking, to comply with the recommendations of Mr. Hummel. We are especially interested in the points Listed above and would appreciate a reply, if possible, by December 17, 1968, the date of our next meeting.

Much of the worst housing was removed in clearing the land for the relief sewer and the City Auditorium. The condition of the remainder has been aggravated by the long period of waiting for Federal approval to execute the Project. In an effort to give some relief, the following actions have been taken: (1) The Housing Code Department, working with our Project employees, have made and are making inspections of the buildings which appear to be in the worst condition. (2) As complaints are received from tenants,or representatives of tenants, the structures in which they live are also inspected. (3) The Housing Code Enforcement Department notifiesthe owner of the work which must be performed in order to correct those conditions which are an immediate threat to health or safety. Our Project employees go to the owners and attempt to persuade them to make the corrections immediately. This approach is achieving a large measure of success. (4) In those cases where the owner will not correct the conditions, the structure is placarded and the ower is asked to vacate the building and board it up. COPY adhe are immediately plasarded so that they cannot be reoccupied, ami the omer is required to board it up. structures have been boarded up, and when evidence of saneone breaking into the structure becomes apparent, the structures (5) In the cases of atructures becaming vacant, the structures are reboarded, 3 eg proceed wi by the en » is for this Project to required appears to C.
