Chiles Home at 435 Ashby Street, S.W. Invitational notice, list of those invited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy only of these minutes. Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by greeting and thank- ing all the members for attending the meeting. The Chairman then asked if the members would rather meet at different places such as Public Housing Projects, etc., than to meet at the same place every month. He explained that if meetings were held at other places, the meetings could be educational, There was general concurrence for holding some meetings at other places than the City Hall. The Chairman then called on some of the Chairmen of the cifferent Panels for reports on the activities of their Panels, He called first on Mrs. Dorothy Gibson, Chairman of the Social Aspects Panel, Mrs. Gibson stated that she made a telephone survey of five different organizations to find out their reaction as to the need for emergency housing. She called the Butler Street YMCA, Urban League, Atlanta Police Department and the Community Council, Mrs. Gibson also stated that she then called the Salvation Army to get their reaction. The Salvation Army stated that they do not “eel that there is much need for emergency housing; and that most of the Salvation Army Shelters are inadequately staffed and cannot provide any more shelters for cmergency cases, Mrs. Gibson stated that the Community Council recommended to its Executive Committee for emergency assistance on all needs. She then stated that the Salvation Army has an apartment type hotel, (four units) to rent at 44 Delta Place, N.E., near Euclid Ave, and Edgewood Avenue, but that the Salvation Army will not rent it out unless they have more staff and that they will not rent to just anybody. Tom Gibson, son of Mrs, Dorothy Gibson, was then called on by Mrs. Gibson to make a report in conjunction with Mrs, Gibson report. Page 2 Mr. Gibson made a report of a survey he had conducted of part ef the personnel of the J. Pi Stevens and Company. He reported that there were 269 houses and out of the total number there were 169 vacant and 100 still occupied, He stated that he visited 62 houses for questioning and that 33 of these were vacant. Eleven were occupied but heads of house- holds were not available; that he questioned 18 heads of households, As a result of the questioning, 45% did at that time have definite plans for new housing before the deadline of September 1, 1969; 37% had looked for new housing without success; 18% had not sought new housing; and that 0% were moving to public housing (only one man had even applied and said he received no answer). As for findiny jobs, 100% of the people in this area stated that J. P. Stevens had helped them to find new jobs and 11% said that Stevens had helped in finding new housing. There waS an average number of 2 children per house. The average rent for the houses in the J. P. Stevens property was $25.00, which had been taken directly from the individuals' paychecks, The Chairman then pointed out that the Veterans Administration 48 Hospital is vacant and the houses around the hospital that were the staff quarters are also vacant. He stated that a meeting was held July 16 with Mr. William Allison, Executive Administrator of ZOA, and Col. Malcolm D, Jones regarding this location, There is open land for play area that would make this place ideal for emergency housing. General Services Administration (GSA) and EOA are working together to find some way to fund this project so that it may be used as temporary emergency housing. Mr, Jones then commented on a telephone conversation he had received that day from Mr. Golden, Plant Manager of the J. P. Stevens and Company. Mr, Golden stated that the majority of people were simply staying and taking advantage of the free rent and utilities until the first of September. Mr. Golden did state that some of the Elderly and families with many children are having a hard time finding apartments that will take them. Mr, Golden Suggested that a Housing Assistance Office be set up to help these families in finding other places to live. He also stated that he would send notices around to thesepeople indicating place and location of this office. He would have a representative of the J. P. Stevens and Company to work with the City, EOA (presumably Mr. Hess's Office) and a representative of the Housing Authority; that he would like for this office to be set up on the 28th of July or no later than the first Monday in August, Page 3 The Chairman then called on Mx. Robert Watkins, Executive Director of the Greater “tlanta Housing Development Corporation, a nonprofit housing sponsor, to see if his Corporation can do any- thing about this situation. Mr. Watkins stated that the Junior Chamber of Commerce is working with him on this project and that they are trying to buy these homes, relocate them and rehabilitate them, The Chairman then asked Mr. Watkins if there is any practical way the houses could be moved to ancther site? Mr. Watkins stated he believed so. Mr. fugustus Sterne, Co-Chairman of the Housing Locations Panel, stated that the Committce should talk to Mr. Sd Harrison, Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. Les Persells, lxecutive Director of the Housing futhority and asked him if he could provide a representative from the Housing futhority to work with the J, P, Stevens project. Mz. Perselis stated that he could provide 2 or 3 people but it would be on a part-time basis because of a shortage in personnel, He then stated that he could provide a full-time employee for about $30.00 a day. The Chairman then called on Mr, Ed Benson to make a report for the Construction and Design Panel. Mr. Benson stated that Mr, Jim Wright and fir, A. T. Connell mage a presentation to his Pancl for a proposal for an Urban Design Study within the Model Citics area, The Construction and Design Panel was asked to endorse their request to the Model Cities Executive Board for funding of the proposed study. The Pancl did not feel that the proposal as presented was specific enough to warrant cndorsement, Mr. Benson stated that he and Mz. Frank Clarke, Gcorgia Tech, were requested to check further With Mr. Wright and Mr. Connell concerning the proposal. He stated that now they are satisficd that this is a worthwhile proposal and it is therefore the recommendation of the Construction and Design Panel that the Housing Resources Exccutive Committee cither endorse the proposal themselves or permit the Construction and Design Panel to endorse this preposai tc the Model Cities “xecutive Board. / motion was made, seconded and adopted that the Housing Resources Committee as a whole endorse the proposal by Mi.

  • Text: Position Paper HOUSING LOCATIONS PANEL Housing Resources Committee For families in the lowest income brackets, $3,000 and below, which is generally considered poverty level, low-rent Public Housing has to date been the only current means of providing standard housing. Other Federal assisted programs, such as the FHA 221 d(2) (Single-family home ownership); the 221 d(3) (Thus far the work horse of the multi-family low- income housing program); and the 235, 235 (j) and 236 programs authorized in the 1968 Housing Act, are all designed to provide standard housing for those families whose incomes are just above the Public Housing level but not sufficient to enable them to compete for standard housing in the private enterprise open market, as it is now constituted, Recent survey, conducted by a private group, showed that more than 80% of the existing and projected Public Housing units in the Atlanta Metropolitan area are located within the City of Atlanta. Furthermore, the FHA 221 d(3) moderate income housing program is prohibited by Federal law from going in any area that does not have a certified Workable Program. (None of the Counties in the Atlanta Metropolitan area have certified Workable Proueania, ) This restriction however does not apply to the FHA 235 or 236 moderate income housing programs authorized by the 1968 Housing Act. Since the metropolitan Seed outside the Atlanta City Limits provides job opportunities and employment for sucha large portion of the Atlanta Metropolitan population and constitutes the primary base for the growth of the Metropolitan area, it is only just and reasonable that low-rent Public Housing units and Federally Page Two assisted moderate income housing be more equitably distributed beyond the City Limits of Atlanta, @ At the present time, in Atlanta's current housing program, locations are needed for 2, 261 Public Housing units to meet reservations already requested by the City and saproved by the Housing Assistance Administration of HUD. Also, Federal reservations and sites are needed for an additional 1, 936 Public Housing units in order to meet the City's 5-year goal in this important category. Under existing Federal policies, the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta is authorized to produce (build, buy or lease) and operate Public Housing units ‘within 10 miles distance of Atlanta City Limits, provided the locations are not within the jurisdiction of another legally constituted Housing Authority and if the governing body of the administrative jurisdiction in which the developments are to be located consents and agrees to provide the necessary community facilities, Since the FHA 235 and 236 housing sToRaals do not require Workable Programs nor formal agreement by the local administrative bodies to provide community facilities, there is an opportunity under these programs for develop- ments to be located in almost any administrative jurisdiction within the Atlanta Metropolitan area, We, members of the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources Committee, believe that adequate physical sites exist (but not without serious problems as to availability), both within the City Limits of Atlanta and in the unincorporated areas of adjacent counties, to meet current and future low- income housing needs, without detriment to any group or neighborhood. However, Page Three many tests such as zoning, government agency approval, price, utilities, and availability must be passed, These tests greatly limit site acquisition. We also feel that not all future Public Housing units or Federally assisted moderate income housing should be located within the City of Atlanta. We eee feel that within the City of Atlanta, Public Housing should be dispersed and that Public Housing developments outside the City should be located near sources of employment for the occupants, in developments of not to exceed 200-300 units each, We also believe that home ownership for both moderate and low-income families should be encouraged, where ever possible and that private enterprise should continually be encouraged to produce needed housing in all categories, . We welcome all efforts to produce housing through private enterprise and hope that ways and means will be found to create housing through this traditional method, We further feel that Atlanta urgently needs a comprehensive ae. of the Zoning Ordinance and complete rezoning of the entire City (not done since 1954) in order to best meet the City's needs in many fields, to include adequate provision for low-income housing of all categories, Since residential construction is largely channeled cost-wise in economic strata, through requirements on minimum lot sizes authorized for respective Zoning Districts, thereby limiting upper brackets on construction costs which are practical for the various categories, it follows that apartment zoning might just as logically also have several categories, with some particular categories geared to low-rent Public Housing and to Federally assisted housing programs, suchas the FHA 221 d(3), 235 and 236, Page Four We therefore recommend and urge the following: a. Prompt mutual eouperahion and assistance of public bodies in the Atlanta Metropolitan area in providing adequate sites for low-income housing, including Public Housing, preferably in small developments not exceeding 200-300 units each, distributed throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan area and insofar as feasible, in eed hie prone to sources of employment for the occupants, That home ownership projects be sponsored and encouraged where ever possible for both moderate and low-income families. That private enterprise seek to enter the field of low-income housing. That a comprehensive review and rezoning of the entire City of Atlanta be made as soon as possible to meet the constantly expanding needs of the City; and That consideration be given to establishing separate apartment zoning categories for Federal assisted multi-family housing developments, That the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta actively seek appropriate locations, both within and outside the City Limits of Atlanta, with view to establishment and operation of Public Housng developments thereon in groups of not to exceed 200-300 units each, That the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources Committee meet and confer with County Commissioners of adjoining counties, encouragin) their cooperation and active participation in locating some low-rent Public Housing units and moderate income housing developments in appropriate locations within their respective jurisdiction.

I want to clarify that the amount of $24 million referred to in Mr. John T. Edmunds' letter of September 23 represents a tentative earmarking, based on estimates, of funds for second year NDP activities in the six cities in Region III presently involved in NDP. The actual amount cannot be determined until Congress has . completed action on HUD's Fiscal Year 1970 appropriations and the _ Fiscal Year 1970 funding levels for the Neighborhood Development ' Program have been established. Although our Department is firmly committed to the Neighborhood Development Program, it is anticipated that fund limitations will make it necessary to place controls on its management. The accompanying background paper explains these considerations in greater detail. Mr. Edmunds and his staff are working out guidelines for the allocation of funds within Region III when the Fiscal Year 1970 funding levels of the Neighborhood Development Program have been established. I suggest that you keep in touch with him with respect to future funding decisions concerning Atlanta's’ Neighborhood Development Program. Sincerely yours, ‘NE onda sss Secretary for Renewal Assistance

  • Text: MINUTES Housing Resources Committee October 8, 1969 . The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee was held at 10:30 A.M. , Wednesday, October 8, 1969, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. Invitational notice, Agenda, list of those invited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes, Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by explaining the preparation of, and filing by the City on September 19, 1969, an application for consideration by HUD for designation of Atlanta as a prototype housing site City, under ''Operation Breakthrough"; that two sites were proposed, i,e., a fragmented site in 3 portions in the Model Cities area and a 33.6 acre composite site at the intersection of Carrol and Harvill Roads, N.W. It was also explained that Atlanta had been omitted in the initial invitations by HUD and that a very short time was available in which to prepare and submit the application, after Atlanta was invited to do so, The Chairman complemented Urban East, Housing Consultant Firm, which assembled the application, and other participants in preparation of the application, including Model Cities, Housing Authority, Planning Department, State Planning Bureau, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and Metropolitan Planning Commission, He also commented on favorable supporting endorsements submitted by a large number of Agencies, business firms, religious groups and civic organizations, Schedule was announced as follows: July 11, 1969 Briefing Session (original - did not include Atlanta) September 19, 1969 Proposals Due October 3, 1969 HUD will complete preliminary site evaluation October 17, 1969 HUD inspection teams will complete site inspections November 28, 1969 HUD will announce selection of eight prototype sites Page Twe January 1, 1970 Sites must be cleared and ready for development March 1, 1970 Site improvements will begin June 1, 1970 ' First housing units will be shipped and installed July 1, 1970 Construction and testing period begins, HUD will control land through leases, options to purchase and purchases. HUD will assume management control of the demonstration program. July 1, 1971 Housing units will be sold and occupied, Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment of the Housing Authority was then called upon to present the overall Neighborhood Development Program Proposed Activities for 1970. Mr. Openshaw summarized the proposed overall program as shown in the attached (Encl. 1) and emphasized the probable necessity for cut back, as indicated in letter of September 23, 1969, from Region III of HUD (attached as part of Encl, 1). Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Robert Barnett, Project Manager of the Vine City NDP project and Mrs. Dorothy Bolden, Vice-Chairman of the Vine City PAC (Project Area Committee), Mr. Barnett very ably explained in detail the process used in developing the plan, through citizen participation (planning with citizens of the area rather than for them) and coordination with various agencies involved, He showed the current ‘overall plan as approved by the PAC and the specific area marked out for execution in 1970. The overall plan includes; a 24-acre park, commercial area, garden type apartments (no more than 2 story), town houses, single-family residences, anda community area (including a day care center), The proposed activities for the 1970 target area are shown in enclosure l. Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Harry Adley, President of Adley and Associates and Mr. Fred Kerpel and Mr, Lavern Parks, associated with Mr, Adley, Consultants for the Edgewood NDP area. He also introduced Mr. Curtis Parrish, Project Manager, Edgewood NDP. 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 | 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: i. 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 dissatisfactior 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.

He said Nixon already is mov- ing toward ‘ ‘decentralization of government” and cited designa- tion of Atlanta as onc of 10 decision-making headquarters for regional federai offices as “one milestone” in that endea- vor. “Over many years,” said Boe, “this has been talked about.

Presumably he will have a slightly more receptive audience than among his stale chief ex- ecutive colleagues — bul not noticeably so.

Our cities are an assorted mixture of 22,- 600 corporations with half occu-- pving less than one-sauare mile of territory, with almest all’ claiming ability to solve each and every crisis on a local. basis.” MAYOR LUGAR suggested to the Jegislaters the Indi: anapolis move of taking “ihe hard road of structural reform to obtain unity.” Ne described Indianapolis as “a united city of 800,000 Ameri- cans oceupying almost 402- square miles of Marion Coun- ty.” He added: “We are rich and poor, black and white, oid and young work- ing together and tooled up ia do a great job of self-government al the local level wilh tax funds which we have generated. “We want our share of reve- nué froin the United States and: from the State of Indiana lo per- j form those functions which fed- feral and state authorities have | AETeed we could do best.” y | i '

This is a special meeting to which all the announced Candidates for Mayor have been invited by the Public Relations Panel to meet with us to state their positions on low-rent Public Housing and Federal assisted moderate income housing. We suggest that each Panel Chairman of the HRC compile a list of several questions for presentation to respective candidates. It would be well to specify which questions are to be addressed to which candidates. Plea se get these lists of questions into the Housing R e sources Committee Office by Thursda y, August 28 and we will endeavor to get these questions to the respective candidates by August 30, in order that we may receive more comprehensive answers from the candidates. Other interesting developments, pertaining to Operation Break.through will also be explained at this time. This should be a very interesting meeting and we look forward to seeing each of you on September 4. Sincerely, k /j!/t)4z~ Cecil A. Alex ander, Chairman Housing R e sources Committe e C AA / me �MINUTES Housing Resources Committee August 14, 1969 The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee was held at 10: 30 A-. M., Thursday, August 14, 1969, in Committe e Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. Invitational notice, list of those invited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy only of the s e minutes. Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by welcoming all members and guests. He then stated that Mr. Butler Henderson, member of the Business Participation and Finance Panel has been designated to serve on the Citiz ens Advisory Committe e of the H o using Authority and tha t h e is working with the residents of all the low -income neighborhoods; and that he is also representing the HRC in this capacity. The first it en'1. on the Ag e nda w a s the r e port s from the P a n e ls on th e ir 1969 proposals and plans. The Chairman calle d fir s t on Mr. Ed B e nson of the Constructi o n a nd D e s i gn P a nel. Mr. Benson stated that the Construction and Design Panel on November 1st will pr esent a 90-Da y Report on implementing recommenda tions of the Eric Hill and Associates Report in the Mode l Cities a rea. Som e o f the recomm e nda tions a r e a s f ollows: 1. Investigation of Code variances related to industrialized housing systems. 2. Recomm e nd Public R e l a tion s ac tivity. The C h airman t hen calle d o n M rs. Do r o t hy Gib s on, Chairman of the Social Aspects P a nel. M rs. G ib s on s t ated t h a t the J . P. Steve n s and Company are doing quite well on the plac e m e nt o f housing for t he remaining famil ies. She a l s o sta te d tha t she att ende d a Schoo l M eeting and found ou t that the res id ent s of Perry Home s do not want any more Public Housing units in this ar ea bec a us e the s chools are to o crowded . �Page Two She also commented that most of the residents of some of the worst slum areas in the City had rather stay and live in the terrible conditions of these neighborhoods than to move into Public Housing. Col. Malcolm Jones then added that on July 28th a small Housing Assistance Office was established on the grounds of the Mill property. On that pate, 48 families had not been relocated. To this date, 2 7 of those families have been relocated. Of the remaining 21 families, 6 have been approved for Public Housing or have ).ocated housing elsewhere. As of Friday, August 8, only 15 families had not made plans for relocating. The Chairman then called on Mr. Robert Watkins, Executive Director of the Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation, and asked him if his Corporation had found a way to buy and move these houses. Mr. Watkins stated that he is working with the Atlanta Junior Chamber of Commerce trying to find a suitable site for these houses to be moved. The Chairman then asked Mr. Watkins if there was any specific date that these houses had to be moved before they would be destroyed? Mr. Watkins answered that the J. P. Stevens and Company would not tear down the houses as long as his Corporation was looking for a place to move these houses. He then stated that the Atlanta Junior Chamber of Commerce had hired some real estate agents to help them select a suitable site. Col. Jones then added that the J. P. Stevens and Company had set no specific date to get these buildings moved, but the timing would have to be reasonably soon. Col. Jones stated that the Atlanta J. C. 's have an eye on Rockdale as a possible site for relocating the J. P. Stevens and Company houses; that Mr. Bill Ogan has approached Mr. Dave Rosen, who was awarded contract for development of the Rockdale Urban Renewal project, in an effort to get some of the Rockdale site. Also that the J. C. 's are looking at the area just south of Rockdale on both sides of Grove Park Place as a possible site. Land Agent records show this area is owned by the City of Atlanta (Construction and Parks Department) and a parcel of about 8 acres which was deeded some time ago by the City to Open Door Inc. for the purpose of constructing a charitable home, which did not materialize. The Chairman then called on Mr. Richard Harvey, Chairman of the Public Relations Panel, to make a report of his Panel. �l __.,.__ -' - .. . Page Three Mr. Harvey stated that letters had been sent to the Mayor Candidates to meet with the full Committee on September 4th from 3:00-5:00 P . M . in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. Mr. Harvey stated that all of the Candidates have accepted, except one. He further stated that the Candidates will hav e 10 minutes to present their views and a 10 minute question and answer period The Chairman then sugg e sted tha t all of the Chai rmen of the diffe rent HRC Panels should send their questions to the Housing Resources Committee Office at least a week before the mee_ting so that the questions co~ld be sent to the respective Candidates, in order to receive more comprehensive answers from the Candidates. The Cha irman the n calle d on Mr. Fr e ema n Hutton of the Lega l P a nel. Mr. Freeman Hutton stated that his Panel was still working closely with Mr. Pete Latimer, School Board Attorney, in attempting to get legislation inacted which would permi t the School Board to lease school facilitie s which might be built by d e velopers, in conne ction with Housing projects in orde r that the housing a nd s chool fa ciliti es would be a v a ila bl e for u se at the same time. He also stated that his Panel is still w or k ing on perfecting a propos a l originally made by Lega l P a nel m ember, Mr. Cha rles L .

The Chairman answered by stating that some of the land is owned by the residents who still live in these areas and that some of the land is owned by people who were residents in these areas but have moved out and have done nothing about their property. Dr. Mays stated some of the Emory Medical Students have set up a clinic in the Plunkettown area to try to help those people in every way that ·they can. He also stated that the people in Plunkettown are a little unreceptive, because they have been promised so much for so long and nothing has been done. Mr. Charles Stinson, Director of the Community Services, Atlanta Urban League, stated that 40% of the residents in Plunkettown do own their property; 20% own land, but do not live in the Plunkettown area; and that the majority of the residents want to leave the Plunkettown area. The Chairman then c a lle d on Mr. Jack Linville, Planning Department a nd Mr. Charle s Stinson, Director of the Community Se rvi ces, Atla nta U r b a n League , t o make a j oint b r i e fing of the Southwest A tlanta Zoni ng St udy pr epa r ed es s entially by G eo rgia T ech Planning Stude nt s under Profe ss or Rupnow , working with various citizens groups of the area, It was as su.med that the dominating influence g overning the study was the desire o f singl e-family home owne rs in the ar ea to limit a p a rtment developments and to keep out low-income housing. The plan as proposed made no specific provision for low-income housing d e velopm e nt, but provided for limited apa rtment developments along the northern periphery only and an extremely small amount of existing R-5 zoning , suita bl e f o r low - inc om e s ingle - f a mily hou s ing d e velopment. The plan further proposed tha t the two l argest apartm ent z one d tracts in this a r ea be rezoned for single-family (much of those areas under consid eration is not suitable for single-family development). Although the Housing Resources Committee had or iginally offered its services and assis t ance in the d evel opment of this project, this Committee was not called upon to participate in this project. The Chairman then discussed in some d etail Op eration Breakthrough expl aining the principal elements involved and incentives _b e ing offered by HUD to Cities which may be selected for Prototype housing sites and the general advantages of such selection. A staff paper prepared in the HRC Office pertaining the significant features involved was dist r ibuted to members of the Committee. (Encl. 3 ) �Page Five After considerable discussion, motion was made by Mr . Bob Watkins, seconded and unaminously adopted recommending that the City make application for a Prototype housing site and enter wholeheartedly into Operation Breakthrough.

HRC Staff Paper on Operation Breakthrough './ �Position Paper HOUSING LOCATIONS PANEL Housing Resources Committee For families in the lowest income brackets, $3,000 and below, which is . generally considered poverty level, low- rent Public Housing has to date been the only current means of providing standard housing. Other Federal assisted programs, such as the FHA 221 d(2) (Single--family home ownership); the 221 d(3) (Thus far the work horse of the multi-family lowincome housing program); and the 235, 235 (j) and 236 programs authorized in the 1968 Housing Act, are all designed to provide standard housing for those families whose incomes are just above the Public Housing level but not sufficient to enable them to compete for standard housing in the private enterprise open market, as it is now constituted. Recent surve y, conducted by a priva te group, showed that more than 80% of the existing and projected Public Housing units in the Atlanta Metropolitan area are located within the City of Atlanta. Furthermore, the FHA 221 d(3) moderate income hou sing program is prohibited by Federal l aw from going in any area that does not have a certified Workable Program. (None of the Counties in the Atlanta Metropolitan area have certified Wo rkable Programs. ) This restriction however does n ot apply to the FHA 235 or 236 moderate income h ou sing programs authorized by the 1968 Housing Act. Since the metropolitan area outside the Atlanta City Limits provides job opportunities and employment for such a l arge portion of the Atlanta M etropolitan population and constitutes the primary base for the growth of the Metropolitan area, it is only just and reasonable that low- rent Public Housing units and Federally �Page Two assisted moderate income housing be more equitably distributed beyond the City Limits of Atlanta. At the present time, in Atlanta's current housi_n g program, locations are needed for 2, 261 Public Housing units to meet reservations already requested by the City and approved by the Housing Assistance Administration of HUD. Also, Federal reservations and sites are needed for an additional l, 936 Public Housing units in order to meet the City's 5-year goal in this important category. Under existing Federal policies, the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta 1s authorized to produce {build, buy or lease) and operate Public Housing units ·within 10 miles distance of Atlanta City Limits, provided the locations are not within the jurisdiction of another legally constituted Housing Authority and if the governing body of the administrative jurisdiction in which the developments are to be located consents and agrees to provide the necessary community facilities, Since the FHA 235 and 236 housing programs do not require Workable Programs nor formal agreement by the local administrative bodies to provide community facilities, there is an opportunity under these programs for developments to be located in almost any administrative jurisdiction within the Atlanta Metropolitan area. We, members of the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources Committee, believe that adequate physical sites e xi st (but not without serious problems as to availability), both within the City Limits of Atlanta and in the unincorp o rated areas of adjacent counties, to meet current and future lowincome housing needs, without detriment to any group or neighborhood. However, �Page Three many tests such as zoning, government agency approval, price, utilities, and availability must be passed, These tests greatly limit site acquisition. We also feel that not all future Public Housing units or Federally assisted mpderate income housing should be located within the City of Atlanta. We further feel that within the City of Atlanta, Public Housing should ~e dispersed and that Public Housing developments outside the City should -be located near sources of employment for the occupants, in developments of not to exceed 200- 300 units each, We also believe that home ownership for both moderate and low-income families should be encouraged, where ever possible and that private enterprise should continually be encouraged to produce needed housing in all categories. We welcome all efforts to produce housing through private enterprise and hope that ways and means will be found to create housing throagh this traditional method. We further feel that Atlanta urgently needs a comprehensive review of the Zoning Ordinance and complete rezoning of the entire City {not done since 1954) in order to best meet the City's needs in many fields, to include adequate provision for low-income housing of all categories. Since residential construction is largely channeled cost-wise in economic strata, through requirements on minimum lot sizes authorized for respective Zoning Districts, thereby limiting upper brackets on construction costs which are · practical for the various categories, it follows that apartment zoning might just as logically also have several categories, with some particular categories geared to low-rent Public Housing and to Federally assisted housing programs , such as the FHA 221 d{3), 235 and 236. �Page Four We therefore recommend and urge the following: a. Prompt mutual cooperation and assistance of public bodies in the Atlanta Metropolitan area in providing adequate sites for low-income housing, including Public Housing, preferably in small developments not exceeding 200- 300 units each, distributed throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan area and insofar as feasible, in reasonable proximity to sources of employment for the occupants. b. That home ownership projects be sponsored and encouraged where ever possible for bqth moderate and low-income families. c. That private enterprise seek to enter the field of low-income housing. d. That a comprehensive review and rezoning of the entire City of Atlanta be made as soon as possible to meet the constantly expanding needs of the City; and That consideration be given to e.stablishing separate apartment zoning categories for Federal assisted multi-family housing developments. , e. That the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta actively seek appropriate locations, both within and outside the City Limits of Atlanta, with view to establishment and operation of Public Housmg developments thereon in groups of not to exceed 200-300 units each . f. That the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources Committee meet and confer with County Commissioners of adjoining counties, encouragin1 their cooperation and active participation in locating some low-rent Public Housing units and moderate income housing developments in appropriate location s within their re spective jurisdiction. �Page Five SIGNED: �I RESOLUTION by the Housing Resources Committee SU_P PORTING THE NEED FOR HIGHLY CRITICAL DEPRESSED P.,.REAS, INCLUDING LIGHTNING AND PLUNKETTOWN, IN THE NEXT NDP APPLICATION FOR EXECUTION IN 1970. WHEREAS, There are several highly critical and relatively limited depressed areas in Atlanta of extremely substanda rd housing, such as PLUNKETTOWN, LIGHTNING, HUFF ROAD and SPRING AVENUE, N. W.; and WHEREAS, The most appropriate and feasible approach toward elimination of the substandar d conditions in these a reas in clearance a nd redevelopm ent of these fl,reas through the NDP program; and WHEREAS, Potential non-cash grants-in-aid credits for the above stated areas are very limited; and WHEREAS, The substandard physical conditions in these areas are of such long standing with little real effort made i n the past to correct them; and _ . - WHEREAS, The City cannot e liminate its principal areas of sub standar d conditions and inferior dwellings until these area s have been brought u n der NDP treatment; and WHEREAS, The City of Atlanta has a surplus of approximately $2. 2 million in non-cash grants -in-aid credits in the Conventional Urban Renewal program. �NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Housing Resources Committee: a. That the Planning and Development Committee of the Board of Aldermen be and are hereby requested to include the specific areas listed above, in the City's NDP application for Execution in 1970; and b. That the Mayor and Board of Aldermen be and are hereby requested to approve the inclusion of these areas for Execution in the next NDP application of the City of Atlanta; and c. That although we encourage and appreciate the efforts of other neighborhoods to improve their areas through the NDP program, if we are to eliminate the war st slums in the City, additional an.d less deteriorated areas should not be placed in priority above the areas listed in this R es olution, for inclusion in the next NDP application for execution in 1970, but rather that special efforts be made to also include such worthy areas. d. That the Fede ral Government (HUD) be form a lly requested by th_e Mayor to authorize utilization of a reasonable portion of Atlanta's surplus credits in its conventional Urban Renewal progra m to help m eet the local s h a re of NDP activity i n the se particular areas. �. •.. . - • . :.. ·i - - · . -~ • •- - • • ~ .... _ T . .. ··---- -- . ,.

One prototype site is to be selected in each HUD Region (possibly two in two Regions). Prototype sites 1nay be proposed by State, County or City Officials, housing authorities, private developers or financial institutions. However, proposals must be endorsed and supported by appropriate elected officials ·•. Proposals (involving considerable d e tail) must be submitted to HUD, Washington, D. C., by September 19, 1969. Design and development contracts will be awarded to those submitting the -best and most promising proposals. Developments are to be planned and managed by HUD and will include mixed type housing for use by mixed economic levels and with racial integration. . ! Sites may vary from 5-30 acres, wi.th expe.ct~tio~ _of developme~t of. I up to 100 units. The following are some of the more pertinent requirements: a.

Considerable detailed specific data is required to be submitted with the proposal. Particular advantages to cities and progra1ns available to be used in support of the Breakthrough are shown in attached. (Enclosures 1 and 2, ) COMMENT It appears that this is perhaps the best means of obtaining local demonstration of housing innovations, techniques, materials, methods of construction arid experimentation in overcoming unneces sar y code restraints. li Atlanta could be selected as one of the prototype sites, it would serve to keep the City . in its already respected position of leadership in the.. housing . . . ·. . . .field, . It would be very appropriate and helpful if one of the leading banks or Building and Loan Associations in Atlanta would sp onsor this program and file application for a Regional Prototype site.

Mr. Hoffman has informed me that his Group has a commitment to HUD to produce 25, 000 housing units and frankly admitted that they are looking for cities which will cooperate with them in making suitable sites available, obtaining a ppropriate zonings and reasonable cooperation on C odes.

Breakthrough - A HUD sponsored and subsidized prototype project. This project proposes selection of at least one prototype housing site in each Region of HUD {possibly 2 sites in 2 of the Regions) and is designed to create a working partnership of Federal, State and local gover_n ments, labor, industry, the financial community, home builders and consumers. Proposals for participation in the program may be made by local city officials, housing authorities or sponsored by private developers or financial institutions, but must be endorsed and supported by the appropriate elected officials - Governor, Mayor or County Commissioners. Applications must be submitted to HUD by September 19 and require quite involved administrative details. Suitable sites must be made available, (5 - 30 acres to accomodate up to 100 units), agreement to place under Federal control and management, make necessary adjustments in codes and arrangements made for eventual d i sposition of the tract and prototype housing. In view of Atlanta's w idely publicized leadership in the low and moderate income field, it w ould appea r desirable for the City to make application (pe r haps th r ough the Housing Author i ty) for one of these Regional Prot oty pe s i tes . 6.

For your information I have tendered my resignation as Chairman of the Housing Re sources Committee to the Mayor elect so he can plan accordingly . My reason is that my position has exc luded our firm from taking any housing commissions. Our failure in recent months to obtain other type s of commissions, which we anticipated might be ours, and the contraction in general in building has made it imperative that we seek work in the housing field. I also turned down the Governor ' s request to serve on his committee. It has been a really rewarding experience to serve as your Chairman. Your contribution in the field of housing will be one of the hall marks of your admini stration and I am happy that I had a role in it. It has been a gr e at eight years and as Pericles time was known as the "Golden Age of Athens", y our time will, I am sure, become the "Golden Age of At lanta". With warmest regards. Since<~ Cecil A.

The actual amount cannot be determined until Congress has completed action on HUD's Fiscal Year 1970 appropriations and the Fiscal Year 1970 funding levels for the Neighborhood· Development .Program have been established. •,1: ,{ ' , ..: ' Although our Department is firmly committed to the Neighborhood Development Program, it is anticipated that fund limitations will make it necessary to place controls on its management.

About 300 cities have submitted, or a re on the verge of submitting, NDP applica tions.

W. It was also expl a ined that Atlanta h ad been omitted in the initial invitations by HUD and that a very short time was available in which to prepare and submit the applicati_o n, after Atlanta was invited to do so. The Chairman complemented Urban East, Housing Consultant Firm, which assembled the a pplication, and other participants in preparation of the application, including Model Cities, Housing Authority, Planning Departme nt, State Planning Bureau, Atla nta Chamber of Commerce and M etropolita n Planning Commission.

Mr. Howard Open shaw, Director of Redevelopment of the Housing Authority was then called upon to present the overall Neighborhood Development Program_ Proposed Activities for 1970. Mr. Openshaw summarized the proposed overall program as shown in the attached (Encl. 1) and emphasized the probable necessity for cut back, as indicated in letter of September 23, 1969, from Region III of HUD (attached as part of Encl. 1) . Mr . O penshaw then introdu ced Mr. Robert Barnett, Project Manager of the Vine City NDP project and Mrs. Dorothy Bolden, Vice-Chairman of the Vine City PAC (Project Ar.ea Committee). Mr. Barnett very ably explained in detail the process used in developing the plan, through citizen participation (planning with citizens of the area rather than for them) and coordination with various agencies involved. He showed the current over all plan as approved by the PAC and the specific area marked out for execution in 1970. The overall plan includes: a 24-acre park, commercial area, garden type apartments (no more than 2 story), town houses, single-family residences, and a community area (including a day care center). The proposed activities for the 1970 target area are shown in enclosure 1. Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Harry Adley, President of Adley and Associates and Mr. Fred Kerpel and Mr. Lavern Parks, associated with Mr. Adley, Consultants for the Edgewood NDP area. He also introduced Mr. Curtis Parrish, Project Manager, Edgewood NDP . · 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 l for proposed activities for 1970. In order to conserve time, further discussion of proposed activities in the NDP areas was concluded. I �I,.~--.. . ,....__,,_ 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 H a rvey and after conside rable 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 u1:ging that every consideration possible oe 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 f_rom Panel Chairmen, starting with Mr. Frank J. Clarke, Chairman of the Construction and Design Panel. Mr. Clarke presented a formal written rerort 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 D e sign Panel; 3. A report developed in his office by an Urban Corps intern pertaining to Atlanta's Codes. Mr. Clarke re c ommended that the report on codes be a ccepted by the HRC a nd copie s transmitte d to the Building Offici a l a nd Cha irman of the Building Committee , Board of Alderm e n. The Cha irman aske d if there was a ny objections? As there w a s 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 t h a t c e rt a in m e mbe r s of his Department be permitte d then to express the ir vie ws and reactions to portions of the r e port whi c h pertain to the ir specia l a ctivitie s. The Cha irm a n c onse nted. Mr . Wofford then introduced the following members of his Department: Mr. W. A. H e wes, Senior Administrative Assistant, Mr. Norman Koplon, Structural Eng ine er, Mr . Wylie W. Mitc hell, Chie f Plumbin g Inspecto r , Mr. E . F . (Red) Wis e , Chief E l e ctrical Inspec tor, Mr. W . H . Go o dw in, A ssi s t ant Chief Electri cal Ins pecto r a nd M r.

T he y were a ll h os tile and n egative i n the ir comments and e x presse d s trong d i s satisfactior with the report, i nsofar as it p ert aine d to their ac ti v itie s . �Page Fou.,: Mr. Archer Smith, Chairman of the L egal Panel, commented that he did not consider the report pertaining to the codes as criticism or condemnation of the Building D epartment, but rather in the nature of an inquiry for clarification to l aymen. 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 likew ise to builders. Since it was past time to adjourn the meeting, the Chairman announced that he would not call for additional P ane l Reports nor co1nplete 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 fir st and thus far only tract of land in the Model Cities area for redevelopment. The offer ing 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.

HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE Aug. 15, 1969 NOTES A.There are 3,572 units known to be Being Considered, plus several sites on which the number of units has not been set( there are approximately 1000 units in this category). 21,979 units Did Not Materialize, of which 21,032 were included .in the previous Summary of May 15, 1969, and 947 additional units are listed in this report as Lost. (The majority of these losses were due to disapprovals of sites, a large portion of which were denials of zoning petitions . ).1,246 units originally listed have been dropped from totals in this report,- because of too high rentals. B.In view of the difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multifamily developments, it is ?pparent that the Low-Income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial portion of the requirements 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. C.No proposal has yet been made for the construction of units(even efficiencies) to rent or s e ll for as per mo. although the London Towne Houses, a 22l(d) 3 Co-op development now approaching completion, is with its one bedroom unit selling at 69 dollars a mo. The City's greatest need is the $30-$50 per Mo. purchase range, which appears to have little chance of accomplishment, without substantial government low as $50 near this rentalsubsidy. . D.Prefab distributors ~nd conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Cod es difficulties, are currently erecting very few single-fam~ly houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for wh ic h there is a strong demand and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the Ci ty 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. E . 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. h as obtained FHA commitment for rehabilitation of 6 units under 221 (h).

Jones Re: Gilbert Gardens - Ralph Pass ' s letter of June 7, 1968, in response to Mayor Allen ' s letter of May 31, 1968 . Gentlemen: Concerning the status of above-named project, the estimates have not been approved by HUD and therefore·the developer's price of $4,028,775 is still only a tentative figure and subject to change . Assuming that approval is imminent, we must then request additional money from HUD to cover revised charges due to changes after the letter of intent . In view of these facts it is improbable that a contract will be signed by June 17, 1968. Sincerely, John R. Garner Assistant Technical Director JRG:gk co: i,4. Dan i. Sweat, Jr., Director of Governmental Liaison ?.fr. Ralph P. Pass, Jr. �HOUSING RESOURCES COMMI TTEE Oc tober 8 , 1969 Item: Pr oposeq Neighborhood Devel opment Program for 1970. Mr. Howard Openshawp Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Auth~ orityp outlined Atlanta's proposed Nei ghb6rhood Dev.elopment Program for 1970. The Program contains eight neighborhoods: Be dford - Pine GA. Tech II Model Citi es Edgewood Vi ne City Lightning Plunket town GA. State New Areas Maps and stati st ical summary indic a ting the proposed acti on program in individual areas was discuss e d. In summary, the 1970 ND? Program proposes the acquisition of 922 parc e ls of l and, relocation of 1392 families and individuals, demoli t ion of 922 structures, rehab i litation of 830 structures and disp osition of 116 acres of l and. As a hous ing r e source for families displaced in the 1970 program, the Housing Authority wi ll compl e t9 and h ave ready for occupancy 2033 public housing units and 650 dwe lling units for fam ilie s of low and modera te income. The gross proj e ct cost of the 1970 NDP program is 27.4 milli on dollars. The fede ral capital grant requested is 20.7 million, the local share is 8.5 million, 7.3 million include s non -cash grants-in-aid to be provide d by the City and 1.2 million in cash tojbe provided by the Board of Regents . Following HUD approva l of additi on section 112 cre dits of 1.1 million dol l ars, the ca s h re qui red by the Boa rd of Regents will be reduce d to $165,880. On September 23, 1969 , the Department of Hous ing and Urban De velopme nt a dvised the Atl anta Housing Author ity that $24, 000,000 h a s been established as the amount ava ilable ·for the 1970 activity o f the six Nei ghborhood Developmen t Programs now underway in Region I II .

C ode 4 04 September 30, 1969 Mr. Cecil Alexander, Chairman Hous i ng Resources Coimni ttee City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Alexander : At i t s l ast meeting on September 24 the panel adopt ed the fol l owing plan for ·i ts act i vities b etween October and January . The p lan is based on the assumption that the winner of the mayoralty election wi l l want to continue Mayor Allen ' s work to improve housing in the city. Wherever possible the plan includes only short t erm goals which are close to realization because the possib ility exists that the committee will not continue. It will be manifestly unfair to r aise the hopes of clients and then be unable to complete the work _ whi ch was started . Code s and· Code Restrictions ·D The study of specific points in existing codn~ should continue. Mr . Thomas Gib son, an Urb an Corps intern, completed a brief survey of the contents of the codes during the summer . His report has been transmitted to the chairman . In the opinion of this panel, his findin gs are typical of the probJ.ems which the codes present to small builders in Atlanta . The panel recommends that his report be accept ed by the HRC and transmitted to Mr . Wofford for action. The panel is aware that Mr . Gibson was not a technical specialist in codes, but his findings are based on a literal reading of the codes, something which must be done if the codes are to be interpreted individually by ea ch building inspector. The Atlanta Housing Authority is planning the purchase and installation of 2~-0 mobile homes which will have be en manufactured in compliance with the city codes. The use of these units represents a major departure for the city and one that may signal a breakthrough in the ac cept ance of modular construction. The panel plans to monitor the use of these mobile homes. The Plumbing Advisory Board has agreed to a trial of pastic piping in drain, waste and vent applicat ions in a single family home in the city. The panel i_s interested in observing the reaction of the public to the progressive action of the Plumbing Advisory Board. It wishes to commend the board for being receptive to technical advances . It also reminds the users of this innovation that it is - incumbent upon them to establish the consumer acceptance of this product now that -the board has taken action to make its use acceptable. 000000 Enc l. 2 �-. '·' Mr. Cecil Alexander Page 2 September 30, 1969 New Methods and Materials for Construction The panel wishes to recognize the efforts of Urban East particularly those of Mr, Edward Benson and the volunteer staff from the various city, county and state agencies ,-1hich made it possible for the city to prepare a proposal under Op@rati.Gn BreakthrGugh. The panel is alsG aware gf twg p:i;-;i,v=;i,te prgr,oo o,li; vilLLch · offer. interesting possibilities for the de sign and construction of housing in the city if they are funded by Hl.JD. The panel plans to remain abreast of Operation Breakthrough a nd advise the city- of ways in which it can benefit from that program . . Housing in the Model Cities The panel notes with approval the decision of Mr. Johnson to limit further studies of area problems and emphasize the construction of housing within the funding now available. After conversation with local home builders, the panel has determined that relatively little residential building is underwa y in the city. Thi s mea ns that the construction capabilities of these contractors are avail able for use in the Mode l Cities. Conversely, most of the construct ion is in apartment houses which require other skills. Therefore, the panel recommends that the Mode l Cities staff concentr ate on getting individua l town house, patio house and low rise construction start ed in the near future whil e contra cting companies are open for competitive bidding to ensure fair u se of the available funds. The· panel remai ns interested in the early :ilnpl ementation of' the a rmature study as a means of controlling the expenditure of available funds. However, the erection of homes should not be deferred until completion of this study. It is regretable that funding was not ava ilable at an earlier date but it is imperative that the study be completed as soon a s possible , even though it is during the erection of some units rec ommended by the Eric Hill study. If its services are needed, the panel ·will a s sist the Model Ci ties in the selection of de signs or construction methods suitable for the area. In summary , the panel recommends that the work of the Housing Resources Committee be continued by the next administration. A pr oposed letter f or Mayor · Allen to deliver to his suc cessor on th i s point is attached. In the interim between election and the completion of Mayor Allen's term, the committee should reappraise its charges and recommend those to be considered f or continuation under the new mayor. Chairman, For the Pa nel FJC:cp lndu1truil D evel o pment Divi oion Engi oo eriog E xperime nt S tation • Georgia ln , titute of Te ch nology �.. -Dear Mr. As you know, our city ha s a l arge and growing demand for housing for all i ncome groups. I am aware of the needs of all of the citizens for adequate housing at a price proportional to their ability to pay. My pTogram to increase the supply of housing- with this goal in mind is just now bearing fruit o I most earne stly recommend its continuance under your admini stTation. The Housing Re sources- Cornmitt ee, made up of many volunteers who have uns elfishly given me their time and effor t, ha s been my met hod of keepi ng track of progr e ss in the hou s ing prograrn. Since many of the members of the cormnittee are fr ee of politica l bia s, I have f ound it useful to have them investigate and report t o me on matters too politica l ly de licate for my per s ona l intervention. t echnique for a ccomplishing these de licate t asks lose. The commi t t ee ha s developed a that I woul d hate t o see the city I s t rongly recommend that you consi der continuing thi s method of operating when this t ype of problem ar i ses. But, specifica lly , I r e commend that the cit y continue t o b e r e ceptive to new i deas in des i gn and construction of houses so t hat we may benefit f r om the technology whi ch is ava ilab l e from many sources . We have architects and engineers on t he committee who can advis e you imparti a lly on t hese mat t ers. The problem of codes and r est r ict i ve t rade pract ices has been minimi zed in Atlanta , but we are still t roubled by t he lack of uniformit y between our codes and t hos e of surrounding areas, This often prevents us fr om obta ining maximum participation in hous ing contract s b ecause the cont ractors who mi ght b id ar e unfamiliar with or won ' t work with Atlanta codes . I am satis fie d t hat Mr . Wofford,once he has a firm hand on hi s sta ff of building inspect ors,will be able to a ss i st y ou in relieving thi s problem . It is not nearly as s evere now as it would be in a period of frantic pome building l i ke that which has occurred i n other administrations . �- 2 - The Model Cities program must move ahea d faster than it is presently goin g . You have an experienc ed staff in th e Mod e l Citi e s program and I recommend tha t you insist on performa nce from it. Ma ny studies h ave been on the area's needs. It is essential that action be t a ken now to s a tisfy th em. Atlanta Housing Authority ha s received a great deal of criticism, much of it from people who are unaware of the total job which the authority has done. The use of relocatabl e homes in Bedford - Pine a nd the .pl anned use of mobile home s to further ea s e the sho r tage of lqw income housing durin g redevelopme nt are but two of the id e as which- typify the work of th i s group. I recommend th a t you continue to urge them to consid e r new idea s on speeding up the job of providing a decent home to everyone under t h e i r jurisdiction. I have enjoyed the opportuni t y of crea ting a bett er environme nt for our citizens. Wh e n I loo k a t an ar ea li ke Thomas ville and con trast it with Cabb age- town I c annot help bu t f eel tha t we ar e on right track. All we ne ed is mo r e s p eed. Even t h ough I s ha ll be out of off i c e , I do n 't e xpe ct t o stop b e i ng conc erned for our c iti z ens . If th er e i s any i n which I c a n be o f a s s is tanc e t o you in providing be tter hous ing , pl eas e fee l f ree t o c a ll up on me. Sinc erely , Ivan Al len �-. In 1922 the Se c retary of Commerce Herbert Hoover reported to Con gr ess th a t conflicting and an tiqu a t ed buil ding codes we r e substantially incre asing buil ding cost s in the Uni ted Stat~s. h a s yet to be so l ved . Forty-seven years l a t er this problem -·· In t his natio n , where efficient productive investment t is t he key to economic growth, we s ee outdated l aws robbing us of their effic iency . No industry feels this more than building constr uction, our l arges t ·,-:.. activity r e quir ing private investment funds. And oo area is more hurt by thi s tha n a r ap idly growing, rapidly urbanizing area such as Atlanta. Arch a ic bu ild ing codes c an rob each homeowner of hundr eds of doll ars that could othe rwise b·e- used for productive investment. When this is added to the thousands waste d on public bu ild i ngs , fin a nced by the taxp~yers, it is -seen th at millions o f investment dol l ars are drained away from the building ma rke t throu gh restrictive building px- nctices . This means that fewer families are a ble to move into new homes and bu s ine ss are discouraged from making bui l d ing investme nts. It is seen t h en ·ch a t obso l ete building cod es c a n form a dr a g on the e conomic d eve lopment o f a community.

The several hundred doll a rs additional ·cost t o build a home in a poorly coded jurisd i ct i on me ans, to ma ny f amilie s, th e d ifference be twe en a new house a nd remaining in a rat in f ested slum. The numerous u rb a n renewa l proj ects with i n Atlanta whe r e publ i c fu nds are sp e nt to make adequate building codes even mo r e important . Our ci ty has five different cod e s: Bui ld i ng , Plumbing , Electrical, Housing,and Heat ing and Ve n t ilating which will be discus se d on det ail. BU ILDING The buil ding divis i on has patt erned its cod e after the National Building Cod e . This cod e is wri t t e n and r ecowme nde d primarily br the National Boa rd of Fire Underwrit e rs and it s ba sic conc ern is s a fty. Very little attention is paid t o innova tive mate r i a ls or advanc e s in technology.

Th ey apply only to building within. the c;i,ty l_.imits . CODES OUTSIDE OF ATLANTA J us t outs ide of the ci ty limi t s t here i s a multipl i ci ty of codes. The Ful ton County Code f or example, app lies to all areas i n Fulton County which a r e not a l s o in an incorporated c i t y such as At l anta or Roswel l. In -DeKalb County on t h e other h and, the i r code applies t o all un inc orpora t ed areas and to s evera l incorpora t ed ci ties who h ave ch osen to use t he county c ode. There are even several ci ties who use the c ount y codes for bui l di ng and heating, fo r example , and the i i own city c odes for p l umbing and electri c ity . This pres ents a ve r y serious problem. Many builders serve t h e entire fiv e county me tropol it an area a nd are t hus fac ed with many dif fer e n t codes . To solve the problem of applying different specifications f or each building e r ected they h ave devised a c omp osite area c ode. This c ode cont a ins the strictest provision on each poin t i n the v arious area codes. any house will meet t he requirements of any code in any area . I n t h is way As i s easily s een , this i nvolves a great dea l of wasted t i me and money, and a better h ouse.is not necessari l y the resu l t. RESTRI CTIVE TRADE PRACTICES Unfortunate ly, Atlanta ' s onl y code pr oblems are not as a result o f other l ocal codes. In spite of recent revision, there can be found numerous faults in any of Atl anta 's codes. By a fault, I mean a stipulation which adds cost to a house without any improvement. These problems will be discussed with respect to the individual codes to which they app ly. �.. - 3 - PLUNBING Consid ering the present t echno logy in the ~rade , the At l a nta Plumb ing Code appear s to be over ly r estrictive i n only two basi c areas , ..-:_; concer ns plastic dr a in , waste and vent pipe . The first The use of this pipe i s cur- rently under consideration by the plumbing advis ory board and will h opefu l ly be permitted in t h e near f uture, plumbing t ree s. The s econd area concerns prefabricated Though the code nevet s pecifically proh ibits these tree s, it does require th at a ll plumbing to be done by authodzed At-l an ta Plumbers. Since mos t of the prefabricated trees are manufactured outside of the cit ~ it is virtua lly impossib l e f or th em to c omply with this provi sion. ~ . Another restrictive rule re qu ires that al l plumbing be left exposed for inspection on the site, Th is means that a prefabricated wall, which 'can greatly r edu ce costs, canno t be used because the plumbing would be inclosed within it. The problems lie in these areas then: a) Plastic drain, waste , and vent p~pe is not considered. b) Not allowing even r ough assemblff ou tside of the ci ty. c) No special provisions for inspection of prefabricated walls . ELECTRICAL Far fewer objections are voiced on the El ectrical Code th an either the building or the plumbing codes. The objec t ions that are encou;tered concern the necessity of putting washing machines and drye rs on separate circuits, and by the same token, diswashers and garbage di sposers mus t also be separ ated. The only other objection concerned the prohibition of underground feeder and branch circuits. The objections on the Electrical Code were then: a) Inability to put washing machines and ~ryers on the. s ame circuit. b) Inabi lity to put dishwashers and garb age disposers on the same circuit. c) Illegality of underground feeder and branch circ u its. BUILDING At this time the Atlanta Building Code exists in two forms, the 1961 edition and its several ammendments and the totally revised edition which will go into effect on January 1,· 1970. This revised edition contains many provisions that the local builders have requested and is consequently quite �• .' - 4 - up t o date . There are however, . t wo glaring items that seemed to have been ove rlooked. The first conc erns the spacing of trusses. Prefabricated roof ' trusses h ave become a grea t cost reducing factor in house construction , and the genera lly a cc ep ted spacing is t we n ty- f our inches, The Atl anta code, apparently failing to recognize the wide spriad use of these t r usses, refers to them by their individual components, that is, rafters and joists . The code cites exampl es where r afters may be pl a ced twenty-four inches apart but the greatest sp acing for a joipt is sixteen inches, ricated truss es to be sp aced at sixteen inches. roof sheathing. "',_ Thus requir(ng prefab- The other problem concerns The nat ionally accep ted thickness for roof sheati_ing is 3/8 inch, whereas the Atlanta Code specifies 5 / 8 inch, It is in these t wo areas, then, that the problem iie: -.. a) Sixteen instead of twen ty-four inch spacing for prefabricated roof trusses. b) 5/ 8 inch instead of 3/ 8 inch roof 5hoathing, Another very important problem which exis ts in all of Atlanta ' s codes is requiring all of the labor to be performed by craftsmen licensed in Atlanta. This great i y limits the amount of pref::.abrication done in fa ctories outs ide of Atlanta even ·.:·.though prefabrication c an substantially lower the cost of a house. For example, bathroom assemb li es can be mass produced, not unlike an automobile, on an assembly line, These units, including l avatories , water closets , showers, tubs and electrical connections are then transported to the building site by truck. When the unit is installed in the house it is v irtua lly impossible to tell that it was not built in the conventional manner, yet the cost is substantially lower. nique. At l anta's codes do not permit this tech- Since the plumbing and electrical work was qot done within the city limits and by licensed Atlanta craftsmen, the unit is prohibited. It seems that if the unit were built according to a nationa l standard . that it should be allowed. By inspection at the factory it could be determineJthat the unit would be every bit as safe .and durable as a bathroom assembled on the site. Safety and durability are intended to be the major considerations of a building code. �• ..

  • Text: Finch Alexander Barnes Rothschild & Paschal Cecil A, Alexander, F.A.LA. November 11, 1969 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Ivan: We thought you might be interested in the enclosed from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. For your information I have tendered my resignation as Chairman of the Housing Resources Committee to the Mayor elect so he can plan accordingly. My reason is that my position has excluded our firm from taking any housing commissions. Our failure in recent months to obtain other types of commissions, which we anticipated might be ours, and the contraction in general in building has made it imperative that we seek work in the housing field. I also turned down the Governor's request to serve on his committee. It has been a really rewarding experience to serve as your Chairman. Your contribution in the field of housing will be one of the hall marks of your administration and I am happy that I had a role in it. It has been a great eight years and as Pericles time was known as the "Golden Age of Athens", your time will, I am sure, become the "Golden Age of Atlanta". With warmest regards. Sincerely, Cea!
