  • Text: HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE Need for Additional Information on Low-income Housing Projects; and Justification for Statistical Clerk 1. This is the only office in the City currently geared to obtain and record information on all low and medium income housing projects. The current list consists of 144 major projects (small ones are combined) and the list is constantly increasing. Many additional projects, previously carried in the “In Planning" and “Being Considered" categories, have been dropped by the way side. . 2. This office has arranged for, and regularly receives, periodic reports on these projects from the following: Building Division (Permits and Completions) Housing Code Division (Rehabilitations and Demolitions, through Housing Code Enforcement) Housing Authority on Public Housing (Turnkey, Conventional and Leasing Programs) Urban Renewal Project Managers (Rehabilitation in Urban Renewal Projects); and FHA (on FHA insured mortgage projects) 3. None of these reports, however, provide information on bedroom breakdown, rentals or sales prices, or estimated dates of completion. This additional information can only be obtained through direct contacts with the builders or owners. Current staff does not permit such contacts and gathering of this essential information. 4. This office is constantly being called upon, however, to furnish such updated information on individual projects and is frequently embarrassed by not being able to provide it, except on a very few projects. 5. For the program to be meaningful, and most helpful to those concerned, information on these details is essential and should be main- tained and be readily available sowéwhere. 6. Some examples of calls frequently received for this information are; from the School Department and Telephone Company, for coordination in planning (Both have stated that this information is particularly helpful to them in planning facilities to serve the projeds the time they are completed); from City and other governmental officials for inclusion in speeches, reports, etc.; from other Departments and Civic agencies for development of plans; and last but not least in importance, from the general public interested in locating in the various projects. 7. Another very essential reason for this infommation is to determine the validity of various projecte as to appropriateness for in@lusion in the low and medium income —* progran.

ALEXANDER, Chairman Housing Resources Committee Dear Members: Executive Group, HRC; and MALCOLM D. JONES Housing Coordinator Low-Income Housing Coordinating Group The July meeting of the Executive Group, HRC and the Low-Income Housing Coordinating Group will be held July 17, 1969 at 10:30 A.M. in the main auditorium of John O. Chiles Homes, 435 Ashby Street, S.W. (Parking in rear. Please do not park in numbered spaces). As a special featurefor this meeting we have scheduled a slide and sound presentation explaining "What Is Public Housing". This Should be a very interesting and informative presentation. Since the last HRC meeting, your Chairman has met with all of the Panels which had not already been given specific assignments and has suggested some pertinent items for study by the respective panels and submission of reports, with recommendations to the HRC, for consideration and action by the Executive Group as a whole, It is anticipated that written reports from all Panels will be sub- mitted to the Executive Group within 30-60 days. Recommendations should be definite, concise and specifically directed toward constructive positive action by appropriate agencies. Since this is an election year, and the future role of the Committee after January 1 cannot be predicted at this time, the scope of recommend- ations by the several Panels for action should encompass primarily things that can be done, or at least initiated, during the remainder of this calendar year. We hold hopes for worthwhile accomplishments by all Panels of the Committee during the remainder of 1969, in the field of housing. We trust that you will be able to meet with us on July 17. A return address postal card is enclosed for your convenience in informing us whether you plan to attend the July 17 meeting. Sincerely, 5 Pry gl ea ty = Aje toi 2 Malcolm D.

The Planning Department was attempting to get the two Aldermanic Committees to indicate how far the 1970 NDP Program should go and specifically whether Lightning, Plunkettown and possibly other areas should be included; and if so, what provisions the City proposes to make to support the program financially. I threw a bomb shell into the discussion by stating that the HRC proposes to support the incliusicn of both Lightning and Plunkettown in the NDP application, for execution in 1970, Both the Planning Department and Housing Authority representatives appeared horrified and at first said that I must mean "for planning purposes only" in 1970; and that the first year should be for planning only for execution to start the following year. When I insisted that I meant for planning and execution both to take place, or at least start, in 1970 they finally admitted that this is possible, if the staffs are made large enough. There is no good reason that I can see why Plunkettown and Lightning should require a year for planning only, especially since a Feasibility Study at the cost of some $15,000 has already been conducted by the Planning Department in Lightning. \1f the plans are kept simple, as they should be, I can see no reason for waiting another full year before going into execution on either area. Mr. Cecil A. Alexander June 16, 1969 Page Two After the meeting, Collier insisted to me that both you and I were on the mailing list and had been informed of that meeting and of the Agenda, I checked with Collier's secretary ami found that you had not been on the list nor furnished notice of the meeting and that the copy which I should have gotten was sent to CACUR.

The areas 69C3 and 69C5T21 are, in my opinion, the most practical areas for low-income housing development this year and area 69C2 would be my second choice.

This year, Mr. Robinson Stated, there will be four permanent City Service Coordinators to work in these difforent areas.

These Interns will be under the supervision of the City Service Coordinators to help familiarize themselves with the problems of the low-income areas, Chairman Alexander asked Mr. Robinson where the Interns come from? Mr. Robinson answered that the Interns from the Federal Government are people who are out of school that are getting training and crientiation to work in some form of the Federal Government, He also stated that the Urban Corps Interns are people in school who are working in the summer and plan to work in City Goverment, Business Communities and other Institutions after they finish school. Page Three The Chairman asked Mr. Robinson what changes have been made in the Summer Program as comparison to last summer?

  • Text: June 4, 1969 Mr. Joseph H. Riggs Director of Graduate Studies in Speech Chairman, Poverty Study Committee Memphis State University School of Arts and Sciences Memphis, Tennessee 38111 Dear Mr. Riggs: Your letter of May 29, 1969, to Mayor Allen, expressing your interest in hunger, medical care and housing as well as procedures and actions taken by Atlanta in getting Federal grants, has been turned over to me for reply. To begin with, let me say that Mayor Allen recognized early the importance of Federal funds in solving many of our’ ‘local problems and the necessity for designating some one to ferret out the requirements, applicable programs and regulations pertaining to Federal assistance in the various fields and in coordinating efforts in obtaining such assistance. So, in April 1966 Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr., then Associate Administrator for Administration, Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., was employed for this purpose and appointed Director of ‘Governmental Liaison in the Mayor's office. His work in this capacity has been tremendous and as 2 result, Atlanta has been very fortunate in securing allocations of Federal funds both in grants and in funding of joint Federal~City participation projects. Rather than attempt to spell out details pertaining to the many Federal participation programs in which Atlanta is engaged, enclosed are several comprehensive documents which explain quite fully Atlanta's approaches and accomplishments in this effort. Two of these sre: Coordinating Federal Aid in Atlanta, experience report 107 City Hell and Neighborhood Residents the Atlanta Approach, experience report 110 el Mr. Joseph H. Riggs June 4, 1969 Page Two Both of these documents have been published and widely distributed by the Community Relations Service, U.8S. Conference of Mayors. In addition, I am enclosing copy of a recent address by Mr. Sweat at the University of Kansas and an updated document prepared by EOA in Atlanta (a directory of EOA programs). Both of these documents provide considerable background information and material on Atlanta's programs. A data sheet pertaining to Atlanta's Commodity Foods Distribution Center and the activities resulting from this facility is also enclosed for your information. It provides a reasonable picture of local efforts being made in food distribution to the poor and needy. With respect to low-income housing, I refer you first to the comment on "The Mayor's Housing Resources Program" contained in Mr. Sweat's University of Kansas address (copy enclosed; see Page Ten). In addition, I am enclosing the following documents pertaining to Atlanta’s current low and moderate income housing program: Mayor Allen's Address at the Mayor's Housing Conference, November 15, 1966 Announcement of Appointments, same time Functions of the Housing Resources Committee Membership List and Organization of the Housing Resources Committee Minutes of Second Annual Meeting, HRC, December 12, 1968 Summary - Status of Accelerated Low- Income Housing Program, January 15, 1969 I trust that the enclosed material is adequate and will be helpful to you in your work in Memphis.

  • Text: July 30, 1969 Mr. James R. Caldwell Housing Intern The Lauderdale Crockett Economic Opportunity Corporation P.O. Box 379 Ripley, Tennessee 38063 Dear Mr. Caldwell: Mr. Dan Sweat has asked me to reply to your letter to him of July 24, concerning funds for a self-help program in rural housing. Your objective is not an easy one and most experienced builders tend to shy away from self-help programs. Those who are willing to participate in such programs generally agree that it is not practical to attempt to utilize more than about 10-15% of the labor force as self-help. We have had very little actual experience in this field here in Atlanta, although it has been considered in a number of instances, The most successful approach that I know of in coping with the situation in which you are interested is through the Farmers Home Administration. We looked into this some time ago and I am enclosing copy of a memorandum I prepared on the matter at that time. It may be helpful to you. A very successful project under this program is being developed in the Ellenwood community in south DeKalb County, Georgia. The builder is Lincoln Jones, a Negro carpenter, who has quite a substantial development going on land he originally owned, His address is 4480 Sims Road, Ellenwood, Decatur, Georgia, Tel. Atlanta, Area Code 404, 241-3537. Other programs under the 1968 National Housing Act which may offer some solutions to your problem are the FHA 235 and 235 (j) programs which are designed to provide single family home ownership. These programs do not require a Workable Program as does the FHA 221 d(3) program and may Mr. James R. Caldwell July 30, 1969 Page Two apply in rural areas as well as in urban areas. Your State FHA office can provide you with detailed information on both of these programs. Trusting that the above may be of some help to you.

The paper was first analyzed by the Housing Coordinator and then assigned, along with the analysis, (Encl. 2) to the Business Participation and Finance Panel of this Committee for study and report back to the Housing Resources Committee. _ At the June 12 meeting, the Housing Resources Committee as a whole received and unaminously adopted the report of the Business Participation and Finance Panel, which was as follows: "The Committee accepted Col. Jones' analysis of the draft position paper establishing the National Urban Coalition's role in housing and added the following recommendations: 1. Greater emphasis should be placed on producing single-family or condominium houses for the middle-income Negroes, These to be in the price range of $20,000.00 to $30,000,00, 2. The major thrust should be for home ownership rather than rental housing. 3. City Governments should cause the necessary steps to be taken to qualify their citizens, who are not in an Urban Renewal area, for grants and/or loans (Sec. 312) to rehabilitate houses thet are now below code requirements, and where the owners have insufficient resources to make the necessary repairs. a Mr. John W.
