(List of orgéenizations and documents attached to file copy of these Minutes). Mr. Alexander then called upon the attending members of Supporting organizations to stand to be recognized. SAbout 159 people responded, Mr. iexander then introduced Mr, Denver Gray, Vice-@hairman of the Housing and jledevelopment Committee of the ftlanta Chamber of commerce, Mr. Gray steted that the Housing and Redevelopment Committee is the Chamber task force for dealing with all matters pertaining to housing in our community. This includes a number of areas: The Urban Renewal Program, Public Housing, Code Enforcement, and the many other government programs related tc housing; that the Committee's ultimate goal, condensed to a single phrase, is to help make available decent housing for all our people, He stated that the Chamber's position is that immediate steps Shovid be taken to adopt an updated Land Use Plan for the City of ftlanta, from which 2 new Zoning Ordinance could be evolved. Such a zoning plan, said the Chember, Should previde for adequate land for multi-family housing and open up land for increased density of housing in 211 quadrants of the City. Mv. flexander thea introduced Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman of the Housing Kesources Committee, Dr. Mays stated that the Jidgermen should update the District Zoning Map of the City and provide adequate locations for low-income housing requirements. He also stated that the peopie should be put in different sections of the City only where it is economically possible. Mr. Siexander then introduced Mes. 1 Glenn Parham, Jr. President Page 3 of the League of Women Voters, She stated that it would seen mandatory to zone areas in all quadrants of the City for different types of housing - low-rent, multi-family, etc. Without this dispersal, the burden becomes too great on certain areas - 25 regards schools, recreational facilities, shopping complexes, etc. With dispersal some residents would be better able to secure transportation to reach jobs in outlying areas. Sound planning and judicious zoning revisions are necessary for orderly growth, Delay in acting upon a new zoning pian will compound the problems. She urged that careful attention to be giva to design (beauty and living quality) - open Spaces and park land - supportive community services to reduce danger of isolation and in securing cooperation of both new and old residents. Mx. flexander then esiked for comments from the gifferenat organizations on the SRC proposal. lic, Otis Thorpe, ¥Fresident of the Empire Keal Estate Board said that the Empire Meal Estate Doard supports well planned and proper zoning to meet the housing needs of i.tlanta. We firmly believe that better housing generates more, jobs, cconomic growth, resulting in citizen participation in raising the standard of living of all Atiantans. We respectfully request your support cn this proposal, ir. sob FlLanigen, txecutive secretary, Atlanta Branch of the National /ssociation for isdvancement of Colored People (NAACP) stated that the ifACP feels that the West of ftlanta already has too many low-income housing units. He said that the NALCP dees not want ary more houSing units in the West erea, but perhaps in other sectors of the City, and wants assurance that additional develop- ments will not be approved ia the western part of the City until other sectors get their equitable share. liv. John Gteinichen, Jil, Chairman of Interfaith, Inc., stated that immediate steps should be talen by the City of ftlanta, through its Planning Department and the Board of Aidermen, to adopt an Updated Land Use Plan, and that a new Zoning Ordinance, based on the Land Use Plan, should be prepared for submission to the Board of fidermen at the earliest possible time. He also stated that equal recommendation should be given to the Zoning Text, because of the food plain and other considerations. liz. Milton C, Foster, President, Home Builders fssociation of Metropolitan /tlanta, Inc. stated that the Home Builders Association calls upon the Board of /idermen to move immediately toward Study, implementation and development of 2 modern ordinance of land use controls, giving due regard and priority to the necessity for increased and flexible density in all residential catagories, which will encourage the production of architectural types known aS multi-family buildings, town houses, row houses, and condominium home ownership of any or all of such properties, Page 4 Mr. Duane Beck, Executive Director of the Community Council of the Atlanta frea, inc. stated that the City of Atlanta should adopt immedietely an updated Land Use Plan and a new Zoning Ordinance, permitting the development of low-income housing on several sites in all quadrants of the City of Atlanta. Mr. George Rice, a private citizen, talked about the Railroad fvenue site. He said that he was in favor of developing this area, but that the area was more suitable to Single-family housing or garden type apartments rather than high-rise for the elderly. Mv. C. B. LeBev frem the Atlanta Real Estate Board stated that the ftlants Real Estate Board supports a new Zoning Ordinance for the City, which would update and acknowledge the tremendous changes that have occured since i9ff4, and which would stabilize land uses for the future; that it is not only essential but long overdue; that immediate steps should be taken by the City of ftlanta, through its Planning Department and Board of /idermen, to aGgopt an updated Land Use Plan, filderman }|.odney M. Cook then introduced Mr. Collier Gladin, Planning Director. He stated that 16,300 units re nmoeded for relocation; that the first year's housing needs have been met, but all the problems have not been soived. He also stated that Public Nousing resources needed to be increased. The proposed plan suggests ideas of continuing effots for dispersal fer the City and region around the City. He said that the i'ederal surplus land should be used for relocation of families; that timing of building of new housing units should coincide with the displace- ment of people because of Urban Renewal, roads, etc.; that the Planning Department is ready to assist and support the Housing Resources Committee in its effort. He stated that the Land Use Plan should be set up with an adequate amount of land that will meet the density of people in the next 15 years; that changing cf the Zoning District Map is a good sound planning principle, Go Mx, flexander recognized the presence cof both Co-chairmen ox the Housing Resources Committee, Dr. Ganford S. ftwood, President of Emory University and Dr, Benjamin E. Mays, President Emeritus of Morehouse College (who had already spoken). hidgerman G. Everett Millican questioned Mr. Alexander on Several points of the proposal and stated that enough housing units should be built to take care of displacement and gave his viewS on Several aspects of the program.

JONES Housing Coordinator MEMORANDUM TO: Mr, Dan E. Sweat, Jr, Chief Administrative Officer Please see attached copy (Encl, 1) of letter to Planning Director, dated September 25, 1969, (which is self explanatory) requesting assistance in providing material for inclusion in next revision of the Status Report on Atlanta's Low and Moderate Income Housing program. Also see attached copy of reply from the Planning Director, dated October 9, 1969, (Encl. 2). Note that the reply from the Planning Director proposes certain studies related to housing to be initiated by the Planning Department. The desirability of these studies is not questioned, However he calls upon me for assistance in preparation of the studies, but does not agree to provide any of the information requested for the Housing Resources Committee for updating the Low and Moderate Income Housing Status Report, About two years ago, when I first requested a Statistical Clerk to keep up the Housing Status Report, I was informed by the Administrative Assistant that a new position of Planner for housing had just been authorized the Planning Department and that therefore the Housing Resources Committee should obtain any needed research and statistical data from the Planning Department, Consequently, I called upon the Planning Department then for similar information to that again requested in the attached letter (two years later), As yet none of the information requested has been provided, I do not consider this deliberate, or unwillingness to cooperate, but rather a natural consequence of another Department being so overworked and preoccupied with numerous details on too many matters, to provide attention and detailed information to another office, for which that Department is not directly responsible, I predict that the situation will not improve materially, Mr. Dan E, Sweat, Jr. October 31, 1969 Page Two The information requested for HRC is essential to meaningful revisions of the Housing Status Report, In order for the City and its officials to have any concept of progress being made in the Low and Moderate Income Housing program, it is essential that a Housing Status report be maintained and constantly revised by someone. No office in the City, other than the Housing Resources Committee, currently has this information. On the other hand, it is physically impossible for me (alone) to obtain the information needed, affect the appropriate updating of the report and at the same time accomplish other essential coordinating and administrative duties for which Iam responsible. This is why, for over two years now, I have repeatedly requested assistance of a Statistical Clerk in this field, Mr. W. W. Gates, who as FHA oriented Housing Consultant to HRC one day per week, was very helpful. However, after working for over a year with no pay, he has discontinued serving, In the absence of other assistance, last summer I requested and obtained the services of an Urban Corps Intern, primarily to work on updating the Housing Status Report. However, he was more interested in changing the system than in obtaining the needed information, Consequently, much essential information pertaining to respective housing projects, such as bedroom composition, monthly rentals or purchase payments, utility costs and estimated time of completion of many projects has not yet been obtained, An additional effort this fall to obtain another Urban Corps Intern to assist in this field has not been successful. When I was initially approached by the Administrative Assistant with view to taking over the functions of Executive Director of the Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal, in addition to my other duties, I was informed that I would get an assistant, Last July, during Mr. Landers' last month of duty, he reiterated that he planned to provide me with an assistant who, could not only be charged with monitoring and revising the constantly changing Status Report on Low and Moderate Income Housing, but who would also be capable of assisting in coordinating other housing matters, such as promoting housing with builders, representing me in conferences and even on occasions, possibly conducting meetings on housing matters, Recent difficulties in adoption of a satisfactory workable Housing Code Enforcement Plan, preparation of the Breakthrough application, housing in Model Cities and proposed housing improvements in other NDP areas, appears to justify additional coordinating efforts in the housing field, In addition, such assistant should be capable and trained to take over my duties as Administrative Coordinator for Housing when I retire, Mr. Dan E, Sweat, Jr, October 31, 1969 Page Three Consequently, I recommend that provision be made in the 1970 Budget for an assistant, Respectfully, Wojcleelds _——— Malcolm D.

The four also visited the of- fices of Representatives Fletch- er Thompson, Ben Blackburn, W. 5S. Stuckey Jr. and Phil Lan- drum. Talmadge told the women that he had voted last year to delay the freeze and is Inclined to do so again.

M., Thursday, September 4, 1969, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. This meeting was devoted exclusively to responses by candidates for Mayor to questions posed by members of the HRC pertaining to the respective . candidates' position on housing. Invitations to candidates were issued by the Public Relations Panel, HRC, which sponsored the meeting. The scheduling of time of appearance, advance press releases and letters of appreciation to candidates after their appearance were all handled by the Chairman, Public Relations Panel. Copies of these, together with invitational notice, to HRC members, Agenda, with time indicated for each Candidate (Encl. 1) and other related documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes, Chairman Cecil Alexander was out of town and could not attend the meeting, so Mr. Richard Harvey, Chairman of the Public Relations Panel conducted the meeting. Chairmen of the respective Panels prepared and sent questions to the Housing Resources Committee Office a week before the meeting in order that the questions could be provided each Candidate in advance so that the Committee would receive more comprehensive answers, Those questions were mailed to the respective candidates on August 29, 1969. Copies of the questions are attached to these minutes (Encl. 2). Each Candidate was given 10 minutes to express his views on housing, and a 10 minute question and answer period, During the question and answer phase, the Chairmen of the respective Panels asked the Candidates questions pertaining to their particular Panel interests. All Candidates were present except Mrs, Linda Jenness, who was out of town that day. Mr. John Vatava represented Mrs. Jenness. Formal opening statements by candidates Jenness and Massell were submitted to the HRC and are attached to the file copy only of the minutes of this meeting. Page Two Alderman Millican's opening statement attempted answers to as many of the written questions prepared by the respective Panels, as time would permit. Alderman Cook and Mr, Tate spoke from notes only and submitted no prepared opening statements for the record, Questions asked respective candidates were in general selected from lists previously submitted to them and notes were taken by Panel Chairmen on questions - asked, Replies were so numerous and involved and stenographic assistance so limited as to preclude recording in the minutes of specific questions asked and answers given. In general, however, all candidates with the exception of Mrs. Jenness (represented by spokesman) appeared to be sympathetic with the low and moderate income housing program and offered to assist where practicable. From this standpoint, it is apparent that the meeting was beneficial and worthwhile. Newspaper comment on the meeting is attached to the file copy of the minutes. The meeting was adjourned at 5:00 P.

Mr. Adley made an excellent color slide presentation of the development process and resulting plans of the Edgewood (formerly known as East Atlanta) NDP area, See enclosure 1 for proposed activities for 1970. In order to conserve time, further discussion of proposed activities in the NDP areas was concluded, Page Three The Chairman then asked Mr, Copenshaw if there was anything the HRC could do to assist in preventing the drastic cut back in Atlanta's anticipated Federal capital grant funds for 1970?; and called upon HRC members for comment, Motion was made by Mr. Frank Clarke, seconded by Mr. Richard Harvey and after considerable discussion, was unanimously adopted that a letter be written to the Secretary of HUD, with copy to the Regional Administrator, pointing out the disastrous effects such a cut back would have on Atlanta's current and future NDP activities and urging that every consideration possible be extended Atlanta in not reducing the Federal capital grant funds. (Copy of letter to Secretary Romney is attached, Encl. 3). The Chairman then called on reports from Panel Chairmen, starting with Mr. Frank J. Clarke, Chairman of the Construction and Design Panel. Mr. Clarke presented a formal written report of his Panel, copy attached (Encl. 2), which includes: 1, His Panel's planned activities for the remainder of 1969; 2. A proposed letter for Mayor Allen to deliver to his successor recommending continuation of the HRC and the activities of the Construction and Design Panel; 3. A report developed in his office by an Urban Corps intern pertaining to Atlanta's Codes, Mr. Clarke recommended that the report on codes be accepted by the HRC and copies transmitted to the Building Official and Chairman of the Building Committee, Board of Aldermen. The Chairman asked if there was any objections? As there was no objection from any member of the HRC, this will be done, Courtesy copies of the report on codes had previously been presented to Mr. W. R. Wofford, Building Official, before presentation of the report to the Housing Resources Committee, Mr. Wofford, who had previously been invited to the meeting, responded unfavorably to the report on codes and specifically requested that certain members of his Department be permitted then to express their views and reactions to portions of the report which pertain to their special activities. The Chairman consented, Mr. Wofford then introduced the following members of his Department: Mr. W. A. Hewes, Senior Administrative Assistant, Mr. Norman Koplon, Structural Engineer, Mr. Wylie W. Mitchell, Chief Plumbing Inspector, Mr. E. F. (Red) Wise, Chief Electrical Inspector, Mr. W. H. Goodwin, Assistant Chief Electrical Inspector and Mr. Romer Pittman, Assistant Chief Plumbing Inspector, Mr. Koplon, Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Wise presented their views on the report. They were all hostile and negative in their comments and expressed strong dissatisfaction with the report, insofar as it pertained to their activities. Page Four Mr. Archer Smith, Chairman of the Legal Panel, commented that he did not consider the report pertaining to the codes as criticism or condemnation of the Building Department, but rather in the nature of an inquiry for clarification to laymen. He also asked Mr. Wofford that since the Atlanta Building Code is based on the National Building Code, with modifications pertaining to Atlanta, if an index of the changes applicable to Atlanta only has been prepared, in order to provide quick determination of the Atlanta changes by builders and architects familiar with the National Building Code, without them having to take hours of reading and comparison between the two, in order to determine what are the Atlanta changes? Mr. Wofford replied that such has not been prepared, but that changes can be determined by comparison between the two codes, Mr. Alexander commented that if such a listing was available that it would be quite a convenience to architects and he presumed likewise to builders. Since it was past time to adjourn the meeting, the Chairman announced that he would not call for additional Panel Reports nor complete the remainder of the Agenda. One item of interest under Other Business (not taken up during the meeting) was announcement September 30 by the Housing Authority of the offering for bids of the first and thus far only tract of land in the Model Cities area for redevelopment. The offering is for a 5.43 acre tract south of Atlanta Avenue, between Connally and Hill Streets, S. W. It is being offered on a fixed price basis, with design competition, for not less than 40, nor more than 50, units of town houses, The meeting was adjourned at 12:10 P. M.

  • Text: i TAR A OIT ATA ro VROCASSING PROCEDURES The Turnkey program was started by KUD on an experimental basis in January of 1966. Its basic purpose is to permit better utilization of the means and knowledge of private enterprise in er oductik public housing. Under the Turnkey method, a developer or builder who owns a site or an option, or can obtain one, may submit, in response to an invitation from a Local Housing Authority (LHA), a proposal to build housing ... for low income families. If the developer's proposal is acceptable to the LHA and HUD, the LHA will enter into a Contract of Sale under which the LHA agrees to purchase the completed development. “This contract will be backed up by the financial assistance commitment of the United States oz America, acting through HUD, to the LHA, and it will enable the developer to secure commercial construction financing in his usual way. At the National level, responsibility for this program is under the Assistant Secretary for Renewal and Housing Assistance of HUD. Program responsibility is further delegated to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Housing Assistance, the Head of the Housing Assistance Administration. The urnkey Program is administered by the Director of the Production Division. ‘There are three program managers within this Division. who serve as liaison officers between the HUD Regions and Headquarters for this and other public housing programs adunistered by HUD. At the Local level, there are generally only two participants: The Local Housing koeneeity and the private developer. The LHA's vary in powers and structure:as they are established under the authority of Stace egislation. \ The Tucnkey method encompasses only. the construction phase of a low rent housing project. It has no direct bearing on the initial application mace by.a community for low rent housing or -the management and operation of a low rent housing project. rey The processing steps outlined below for a.turnkey project follow the approval by HUD of a LHA's application for a low rent housing program: a1 decision to construct proposed low rent - If not already versed in the application of the Turnkey method, the LHA consults with regional officiais, obtains sufficient information equirements and procedures, and decides to pEecers by that method. 3. The LHA may request a preliminary loan from HUD to cover turnkey exp 3; if approved by HUD, a loan contract is negotiated between HUD and the LHA. 4. The LHA invites proposals from private developers for participation in a ‘Turnkey project. This must be done by public advertisement stating type of project desired, number of units, and other details of the proposed project. The notice also must specify the federal requirements that must be complied with. "od 5. ‘The private developer(s) submits 3 copies of a proposal in response to the. LHA's solicitation. ‘ ; i 6. The LHA sends two copies of all the proposals received to the Regional Housing Assistance Office (HAO). 7. The LHA and HAO evaluate the proposals and come to a mutual agreement of the developer to be chosen. This involves, among other things, site evaluations made by the HAO Realty Officer. 8. The LHA notifies the developer of his tentative selection by letter. 9. The LHA contracts for two independent appeaisets of the site. 10. A Feasibility Conference is held in the HAO with the following participants: the LHA representatives, the developer, his architect and other associates, and HAO stafiz. This conference has three primary purposes: ony ( ) to negotiate the purchase price of the land; (2) to discuss project design and HUD requirements; (3) to set dates for: (a) submission and review in the HAO of the drawings and other dates reguired f of Intent; (b) a Negotiation Conference; (ce) execution of the Letter of Intent; (d) submission and review by LEA and HAO of working drawings and specifications; and te) execution of Contract of Sale. ii. After the Feasibility Conference has been held and an understanding reached, the developer proceeds with the preparation of the material required for the Negotiation Conference. 12. The developer submits his preliminary plans which are reviewed by the LHA and HAO. The plans are discussed with the developer and. his architect and any necessary changes are made.. 13.

As you will note, the Inventory of projects has many blank spaces, which were intended for insertion of certain data, which the limited facilities and staff of this office have precluded obtaining the desired information necessary to complete the forms.

  • Text: Questions by Legal Panel Housing Resources Committee Whether or not the entire City should be rezoned, and if so, whether they would employ the 1983 Land Use Plan as their basic guide? Their position on package zoning, i.e., disbursing public housing units through- out all quadrants of the City, and, in particular, whether each candidate would favor public housing in the ward in which they presently reside, if land could be located that was feasible in cost, and if the requisite community facilities were available? Should the City undertake to construct public housing units with public funds to provide for its poor, and do they feel that private enterprise is capable and willing to meet this need, should the City not continue the fostering of public housing ? Does a public housing unit of the caliber of the John O, Chiles Project on Ashby Street lower or improve property values and the standards of the community, if it were placed in (a) a slum neighborhood; (b) a lower middle class neighborhood; (c) a middle class neighborhood; (d) an upper class neighborhood? Do you feel that the Atlanta School Board should be given the right, and should exercise the right, to lease school buildings from a private developer in order to provide the requisite community facilities in a large public housing project, as opposed to the present system of having to acquire the land in fee simple before heing able to use it for school purposes ? Do you feel that the present Housing Resources Committee, consisting of one staff man, one secretary, with the Chairman and the rest of the Committee being engaged in private enterprise, should be abolished, expanded, or diminished? What is your position on the proposal that a separate housing department be created for the City with a department head holding equal dignity with other departments, a full time staff, and sufficiert secretarial assistance? What would be your position on a specific grievance procedure relative to eviction and discipline in Atlanta Housing Authority projects?

  • Text: HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE October 8, 1969 Item: Proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970. Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Auth- ority, outlined Atlanta's proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970. The Program contains eight neighborhoods: _. Bedford-Pine GA. Tech Ii Model Cities Edgewood Vine City *Lightning #Plunkettown “GA. State *New Areas Maps and statistical summary indicating the proposed action program in in- dividual areas was discussed. In summary, the 1970 NDP Program proposes the acquisition of 922 parcels of land, relocation of 1392 families and indiv- iduals, demolition of 922 structures, rehabilitation of 830 structures and disposition of 116 acres of land. As a housing resource for families displaced in the 1970 program, the Hous- ing Authority will complets and have ready for occupancy 2033 public housing units and 650 dwelling units for families of low and moderate income. The gross project cost of the 1970 NDP program is 27.l, million dollars. The federal capital grant requested is 20.7 million, the local share is 8.5 million, 7.3 million includes non-cash grants-in-aid to be provided by the City and 1.2 million in cash tojbe provided by the Board of Regents. Fol- lowing HUD approval of addition section 112 credits of 1.1 million dollars, the cash required by the Board of Regents will be reduced to $165,880. On September 23, 1969, the Department of Housing and Urban Development ad- vised the Atlanta Housing Authority that $2,000,000 has been established as the amount available for the 1970 activity of the six Neighborhood De- velopment Programs now underway in Region III. This represents 5.9% of the federal capital grant funds available in the Region for 1969. The Regional office of HUD will allocats the available funds for 1970 NDP activities on the basis of each City's needs, its record of performance, and its ability to postpone some activities until a subsequent year.

Our Department has taken an active interest in housing in the pasf few years and will continue to do so in the future in view of new Workable Program requirements concerning housing. During the next few months, we will attempt to accomplish the following work tasks; 1. To establish clear standards by which to judge whether new housing serves low, moderate or upper-income families. | think we all agree that there are problems with the standards we are presently using; however, we are well aware that the standards were hastily established. 4 2. After establishing the above standards, we will attempt to evaluate all housing permitted within the past 2 1/2 years and to provide you oa with an analysis of this information. We will be attempting to establish a format which will meet HUD Workable Program guide- lines for future reporting and also serve City heads. 3. After completion of items ‘one and two, our staff will begin the design of a city-wide housing study. fn ef, 2 Mr. Malcolm Jones October 9, 1969 Page 2 Mrs. Sally Pickett is the Planning Department staff member who has primary responsibility for these tasks. | am sure she will be asking for your assistance and | hope we can count on you for help in this work.

Livie Hill] Associates is perhaps the best housing, planning consultant fiem I know and there is little containcd in the attached proposal with which 1 disagree, However, it seems somewhat ine appropriate to initiate another major study whon we have not yot been able to implement the recomaendations of the previous study, although we aro fully aware of the major factors which are stiil holding up implementation of the px eeooe SLUG « the following are some of the more inportant of these cy? @.e The number ono problem of course is getting Bite approvals, be Other dixficulties which have net been adequatoly corrected and zor which specific reconnendations were nade formally by the Housing Resources Committee to the Zoning and “Planning ang Development Comaittees of the Board of Aldernen, August 2, 1968, includes 3. “Revision of the Ordinance governing non-conforming use of land to allow structural changes in improving dwoliting units to meet yeduiremonts of the Housing Code." tite Cecil A. Alexander u invy 24, 1969 : 4. “Accelerate the Urban Renewal progras particularly in the NASH-BANS, Vine City and other areas outside the Ucdel Cities area." This being only partially implenented now.) 6. “Adoption of a revised district soning hap based on the new Land Use map, to include adcguate areas for low-incowe houlnes." : There are sevoral related docunents which have a direct bearing on this matter. Le Be de The more pertinent of these ares The Second Annual Roport (FUTURE DIRECTION Section) which spelicd out certain recomnend= ations for Zuture course of action for the housing progran aod called for a revised Statenent of nission from the Mayer for the Comittee. Copy of draft preposed (2-10-65) for revised mission is attached (Encl. 2). It contained, among other things, suggestion that a joint study of the housing needs of the City be conducted by the Housing Authority, Planning Department and the Housing Resources Comittee. Such study might substitute for, or be absorbed in, the proposed study by Eric Hill Asseciates. Sone suggestions fox a more practical approach to solving the Icwe-income housing problems are contained in Memo to Dan Sweat, February 11, 1969, copy attached (Encl. 3). Proposal for specific housing and related activities Zor tho recently approved Urban Observatory are contained in Memo to Mr. Sweat, October 31, 1968, copy attached (Encl. 4). It is doubtful however, that ali of the proposed activities can be assuned by the Urban Cbservatory, certainly not initially. The Housing Coordinator has repeatedly pointed cout the need for, and requested the services of, a Statistical Clerk to keep un-toedate and periodically reproduce the Low-Income Housing Inventory Report. That important report cannot be kept current, through existing facilitics of the Housing Resources Committee office. Just recently, as frequently, ir. Cecil A.

Renlizing the lecal Administration's desire to reduce rather than add Departments and in order to avoid appearances of onpire building, I have thus far refrained from recommendins establishnent of 2 Housing Bureau or Department. However, aithough a good start has been made in housing, I feel that wo have barely scratched the uxrfaee of the overall housing needs cf the City during the next 20 years; and that this preblen can bost be attnckod through an inerease in, and elevation of, Housing Resources facilities, Perhaps the tine has now come when we should seriousiy consider expansion of such facilities and follow the recommendations of the CiP by establishing & Suall Housing Bureau or Department. In summary, the proposal of Fric Hill Associates is in general practical. However, I cannot seo ang particular advantage of such additionnl study at this time, unless there is, or will be, ample organization and political structure for implementation of its findings. This dees not exist new aud should be a prerequisite to initiation of such a major new study. Recommendation (if made} for such organization and political structure should, in my opinion, criginate with the Housing Resources Conmittee,. Mr. Cecil A.

  • Text: HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE October 8, 1969 The Honorable George Romney Secretary of the United State Devartment of Housing and Urban Development Washington, D. Cy Dear Mr. Secretary: On October 8, 1969, at request of this Committee, a presentation was made to the Committee by a representative of the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta (the City's Agent for carrying out the Urban Renewal Program) on proposed activitica for 1970 in the City's Neighborhood Development Program. Copy of summary is attached (Encl. 1) This proposed program includes rather extensive activities in the five existing NDP areas and also minimum acquisition in three additional arcas, Two of these, i.e., Lightning and Plunkettown are very depressed residential areas, which this Committee has been strongly promoting for acquisition commencing in 13970, in order to rid the City of these specific pockets of very dilapidated residential slums. The City has made a major effort in developing this proposed program and is prepared to meet the local share of the Net Project Cost, as indicated in the attached. However, letter recently received from Region UI of HUD (capy attached) indicates a drastic cut back in the anticipated Federal capital grant funds with which to finance the Federal share of Atlanta's proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970. This would mean a severe blow to Atlanta's 1970 NDP program and great disappointment to the Froject Area Committees (PACs) and other citizens of the areas involved, with whom the Housing Authority, * the City Planning Cepartment and this Committee have been working closely for so long. A drastic cut back now in proposed activities would be disastrous to morale and neighborhood aspirations, Bacl, 3 The Honerable George Romney October 8, 19693 . Page 2 Atlanta has previously established an enviable reputation for Urban Renewal and NDP accomplishment and can be depended upon to continue to do a creditable job in this respect, The Housing Resources Committee itself was created by Mayor Allen in November 1966 to prornote, coordinate and expedite the City's low and moderate income housing program. To date it has accomplished creditable results, as evidenced by the attached Summary - Status of Accelerated Low-Income Housing Program (Encl. 2). Therefore on behalf of, and in accordance with formal unanimous action by the Executive Group, Housing Resources Committee, lurge that every consideration be given by your office to maintaining Federal capital grant funds to be allocated to Atlanta in support of the 1970 NDP program at or as near as possible to the proposed Net Project Cost of the 27.4 million dollara. Sincerely, Gecil A. Alexander, Chairman Housing Resources Committee CAA/me Encle: 1. Summary, Atlanta's Proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970. 2. Summary - Status of Accelerated Low-Income Housing Program. cc: Mr. Edward H. Baxter Regional Administrator Region lll, HUD 7
