CRAFT DIRECTOR OF FINANCE VICE CHAIRMAR GILBERT H, BOGGS DIRECTOR OF HOUSING HOWARD OPENSHAW DIRECTOR OF REDEVELOPMENT J. B. BLAYTON FRANK G. ETHORIDGE GEORGE R. SANDER TECHNICAL DIRECTOR JACK F. GLENN 824 KURT BUILDING ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 JACKSON 3-5074 July 23, 1969 Mr. Charles L. Davis Director of Finance City of Atlanta City Hall - 68 Mitchell St. S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Davis: The Atlanta Housing Authority has for a long time been eager to have the City Parks Department supply recreation leadership to residents in public housing projects. In our conferences with representatives of the Parks Department, it develops that they are equally eager to supply these services to the citizens of Atlanta who live in public housing. From these conferences,it appears that the only reason that such services are not supplied to these citizens is that a definition of city services has been made that prevents City funds from being expended for this purpose. As you know, the Atlanta Housing Authority is prevented from supplying face to face leadership by Federal regulations. It appears that these citizens of Atlanta are prevented from receiving full city services simply by virtue of where they live. It is ovr hope that this situation can be. corrected at the earliest possible date since the Atlanta Housing Authority, in contrast to most other property owners,has outdoor and indoor space which can be made available for recreation purposes at no or little cost to the city. I would be grateful if you would call this to the attention of the necessary individuals so that a favorable ruling can be obtained. Sincerely yours CED. Tle Lester H. Persells Executive Director LHP: sd cc: Honorable Ivan Allen, Mayor Je. Dan E. Sweat, Jr., Governmental Liaison Mr. James W. Mills, Asst. Reg. Admin. HAA, HUD Mr. Milton G.

Atlanta, Georgia 30316 Dear Mr.Griggs: Recently you asked Mr. Openshaw for information concerning the property bounded by Georgia Avenue, Capitol Avenue, Bass Street, and Washington Street. Approximately a half of this area is in the Rawson-Washington Urban Renewal Project, and the other half is in the 1969 clearance area in the Model Cities portion of the Neighborhood Development Program. If the Rawson-Washington Project is to close before December 31, 1969, the sale of this land would take place through two simultaneous offerings. Under the present approved land use, the land can only be used for commercial, and would be offered in such a way that a Developer could mythe entire area with Crew Street to be closed, or buy either or both blocks to keep Crew Street open. Under the Model Cities Land Use Plan, the block bounded by Crew, Georgia, Capitol, and Bass is designated for park use, which is, of course, public. If this portion of the area were to be used for public purposes, amendments to each of the two Programs would be necessary. In any event, the land would have to be appraised by two competent appraisers, with a price to be concurred in by the Renewal Assistance Administration. The appraisals would be the same for either commercial or public use, because property to be sold for public purposes must be appraised at its highest and best alternate use. We have not, of course, had appraisals made. Based on our experience, our Real Estate people estimate that the price per sq. foot would not be less than $3.00 or more than $5.00. Land for commercial uses mist be sold under competitive procedures. land for public purposes, how= ever, can be sold without advertising. If the land were used as a park, the price of the land would be eligible as a non-cash grant-in=-aid credit to the extent that the park served and supported the Project. If it were used for office space, no credit would be available. If part were used for one purpose ape and part for another, the above provisions would apply. If the area were to be a Park with temporary use for office space, the matter would have to be negotiated with the Renewal Assistance Administration, and probably receive Washington concurrence or approval. It is my hope that this will clarify the questions you have. If not, please let me know and we will try to provide further information. Sincerely yours, . wo - a ; ? = it fo he ket ei a Lester H.

Your summary wf what urban renewal is accomplishing in Atlanta ard some of the problems it is encountering is most helpful in my project on the his- tory of the program. I also appreciate the discussions I had with Mr. Sweat, Col. Jones, and Mr. Satterfield and other staff of the Housing Authority. I have just fin- ished converting my notes to tape and find that these discussions, together with the written materials furnished me, give me a current and comprehensive view of the Atlanta urban renewal program. Anyone who has been to Atlantaat different times over the last quarter century, as I have, cannot fail to be impressed by the tremendous progress that has been made in both the city's physical and social development. The primzry role that you have assigned to urban renewal is therefore most gratifying. This is particularly so in view of the attacks which have been leveled against the program in the last several years. The most recent is the chapter, "From Slum Clearance to Urban Renewal," in the report of the National Commission on Urban Problems, which has just been released. I understand that this chapter was written personaily by Senator Paul Dougias, chairman of the Commission. Unfortunately Senator Douglas's attack is based in large part on a distorted and inaccurate version of the legislative history of the program. My conclusion is based on the opinions of others who participated in this history, my observations over two decades of close participation in the legislative and policy devel- opment of the program, and the review of events leading to the original enactment in 1949 which I have just concluded as part of my project. Programs like that in Atlanta ani the support they have fran the community are undoubtedly better answers to that kind of criticism than any attempts I or others can make to straighten out the record. So I wish you and your associates continued success in your new efforts which have just been announced.

The only Limitation is budgetary for the Parks Department and facilities (park space, recreational buildings) etc that are provided by the Authority when one of the projects are constructed, About three years ago, the ity had a contract with Senior Citizens Services, Inc. for such programs in the three high rise buildings for the elderly. They have recreational facilities in these buildings. We should have recreational programs in the housing projects. There is really only one reason whay we don't: money.
