RE: Model Cities Program Dear Mayor Allen: I am taking the liberty of writing to you at the suggestion of Governor Ellis Arnall to whom I wrote recently in connection with an item appearing in "Fleet Owner, July, 1969" concerning the 1Ocent shuttle bus service for the model cities area. I am enclosing an extra copy of this letter for Mr. Johnny Johnson, whom I understand is Director of Atlanta's Model Cities program and I am also sending a copy to Governor Arnall. In my Washington office I have the good fortune to represent the City of San Juan, where last November they elected a very energetic young lawyer, Carlos Romero Barcelo as Mayor. He is 36 years of age, a graduate of Yale University in 1953, and of the University of Puerto Rico Law School 1956. He inherited a very difficult situation with respect to his Model Cities program which had been commenced under the preceeding administration Which had failed to take care of many essential items. The program was in jepoardy when Mayor Romero took over but as of several weeks ago, he was assured by former Mayor Hyde of Fresno, now at HUD, that the program is going through satisfactorily. Coincidentally, the Federal Implementation Grant for San Juan is $7.1 million whereas I notice Atlanta's Model Cities Program is budgeted at $7.2 million. The principal reason for this inquiry to you, and through you to Director Johnny Johnson, is that San Juan has a very difficult transportation problem and the plan worked out in your city with respect to 10 cent shuttle bus service throughout the 3,000 acre model cities area might well be a Godsend. It is interesting to me to note that a mutual friend of Governor Arnall and mine, the late Wallace R. Burke, formerly of the Interstate Commerce Commission, suggested an almost identical plan to Mayor Romero in my presence in San Juan on 31 March,1969. Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. August 30, 1969 If it is not an imposition, and if Mr. Johnson, could send me data which would help me advise Mayor Romero along these lines, I would be indebted. Very truly yours, GMS, Jeuder/ Matthew J. Faerber c.c. Hon. Ellis Arnall Fulton Federal Building Atlanta, Ga. 30303

Aldridge, Jr. Director Community Improvement Program City Hall 68 Mitchell Street, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Aldridge: Subject: Project No. Ga. R-97(CRP) Community Renewal Program Approval of Housing Costs Study The Housing Costs Study for the Atlanta Community Improvement Program has been reviewed and found to be satisfactory. It is recommended that the Model Cities Agency be advised of the following: a. To consider the recommendations and conclusions contained in the Housing Costs Study in planning relocation resources, especially as they concern housing preferences, timing of development of resources, treatment of particular neighborhoods or sub-areas, the style and cost of housing and full utilization of HUD-assisted housing programs. b. To coordinate the Study recommendations with proposed NDP activities within the Model Cities Area. ec. To include in the Relocation Program for the Model Cities Area the matters included in paragraph a above, in addition to reviewing estimates of displacement found in the Study. d. Relative to housing resources proposed for relocation of residents in or from the Model Cities Area, displacement should not exceed the supply of new housing which can be assured of development within the same displacement period. In view of the experimental nature of the Model Cities effort and the recommendations in the Study to use all possible methods and programs to keep housing prices low, it may be necessary and desirable to show resources on a year-to-year basis with first year displacement limited to the resource supply for that year, allowing the time for development of innovative housing programs and in attaining necessary sponsorship on an open-ended basis. This would require assurance that displacement and resource supply will be reviewed annually with amended Relocation Programs provided to HUD for concurrence before displacement occurs.

BOX 175) B47-OO34 B47-1112 September 9, 1969 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor , City of Atlanta Atlan t a , Georgia 30303 Dear Sir: May I acknowledge your letter of September 3 , 1969 for Judge Faerber who is in Puerto Rico on business until Thursday of this we e k. Your letter will have his attention and appreciation at that time. c~yrr:u:s~-w~ fw Secre t a ry to Matthew J. Fae rber �' I 123 Vanira Avenue, Southeast Atlanta, Georgia 30315 September 2, 1969 Dear Comrades: It is with deep regret that the program that was conceived for t he purpose of motivating more resident participation and training has taken on the pattern of not more, but a fewer number of residents taking part in the program. The possibilities of helping the cit i zens of the Model Cities connnunity grow in stature has been placed behind a painted wall by a few of the residents that were elected to serve without bias for the betterment of a total corrnnunity with funds funneled into the target area for that purpose. As of now the residents ha ve the chance to do for themselves a job that was long needed - to be able to think of expa ns ion areas and the correct way t o expand. It is within this structure I pray the Mode l Cities Mass Convention, Incorporated will operate in the future. The juvenile acts that are taking place in the operation of t he Board of Directors at this time can only l e ad to a state of dictatorship that .can impede the growth of any worthwhile organization. At t he t ime of t he e l ect ion f or offi cers of t he Mode l Cit i es Mass Convention , I ncorporat ed, I was e lected treasurer, but fi nd I cannot , nor ,·rill ~ot , a ssume the responsibility of t hat office U...'1der the conditions listed herein: 1. When advanced funds wer e received fr om EOA to t ake care of t he community workers payroll, t he Chairman of the Boar d , Deac on Pet ers , inst ructe d the secretary t o make the ba nk deposit, secure checks ~nd pa y off the workers. 2. The aforeme ntione d assi gnment was l ater delegated t o Mr . J ohn Hood ; a Board Member. 3. Mr. Hood st ate d that he was requeste d , but refused to pay from these monies the salary of a secretary that is not officially on t he payroll of Mode l Citi es Mass .Convention, Incorporated. �September 2, 1969 Page 2 All of these transactions took· place without the benefit of vouchers, drafts, etc., that would enable the treasurer to keep accurate records. Under the existing conditions the need for· a treasurer is nil. Therefore, before more valuable time is lost by the Board, certain guidelines should be studies and become a workable pattern. I recognize the fact that no individual or group can exist without making errors, and the experiences gained by such means should prove of value for future operations . I hold no animosity toward anyone in the organization and shall continue my support for the total program, but with the slovenly methods used to date, I have no alternative other than tender my resignation as treasurer effective innnediately.

General, Project Status, and Other Related Projects Under Coordination A.l. Administration A.l.a. The City of Atlanta and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development officially signed ·the $7.175 million supplemental funds contract May 20. Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. signed for Atlanta and Ed Baxter, Regional Administrator, signed for HUD. Present for the ceremony were Earl Metzger, Regional Model Cities Director, and Johnny c. Johnsor Atlanta Model Cities Director. A,l.B. On May 29, the City officially designated the Negro-owned Citizens Trust Company to be the officiaJ depository for supplemental funds. This represents the largest account ever e143.215.248.55:ished by the City of Atlanta in a Negro-owned Bank. A.l.c. Also on May 29, Model Cities signed its first delegate agency contract - with the Atlanta Transit System for a $205,000 intra-neighborhood ~us system. Mayor Allen, other political leaders, business leaders and news media representatives were given a tour of the bus route, which officially was to start June 4. A.l.d. Other priority contracts were scheduled to be signed during the coming reporting period. A.l.e. A comprehensive rev iew of a ll supplementallyfunded projects was completed by the Plans and Evaluation and Program Management Divisions. This review was designed and executed to assure that each project was pronP.,..1~ A.-:: :=:.:..... '1 and ad".\ressed itself r~ ~he ~pacific objective for which it was designed. In addition, pre- contract reviews were held with a specially- appointed review team from tha Model Cities Executive Board. A.lof. The Plans and Evaluation staff began formalizing a Resident Service Information System which would l �-2- permit Model Cities to serve more adequately each resident who comes into contact with any project in the program. The system would involve nonsupplemental-funded as well as supplemental-funded agencies. Contacts were made with p~ivate firms which might be capable of designing the system. A.2 . A.l.g. Also included in preparation for implementation was a comprehensive salary study regarding simil ar job classifications in the various components. The purpose of the study was to discover salary differences in positions which will require the same type of work. Wherever such disc:r.ep:mcic s were found, the appropriate agencies were asked to review their salary scales. A.l.h. In accordance with a HUD request, Model Cities submitted an overall survey regarding in-house and on-loan administrative personnel. The study includ ec salary scales, recruiting pract ices, and types of positions . HUD h ad requeste d such action to compare similarities and differences among the various Model Cities programs throughout the nation. A.l.i. Concentrated work continued on planning for the t e nagency multi- pur pose cente r scheduled to be c omplete < by July 15. Commodore Corporation of Omaha, Nebrask, was the low b i dder for the modular-constructed, 20,000 sq. ft. facility. The contract with Commod oi i s e x pected t o b e s i gned during t he c oming repor t ing period. The contract with the Atl anta Housing Authority for t h e l and is also expected to b , s igned dur ing t h e corning r epor tin g p eriod. Social Services A.2°a. HEW initiated a signoff system whereby any of its future projects affecting 5 00/4 of the Model Cit i es area residents would require a certificate of approval from the Model Cities Director. A.2obo Several meetings were held with the ten agencies wnich will be housed in the temporary multi-purpose facil~tyo · Among the major results were establishment of an operating committee to oversee the quality of services to residents and the resolving �-3- of various adminis trative matters (decentralizing phone service~ system f or paying utility bills,etc~ ), The Committee will include agency r e presentative s and re~Jdents. A.2.c. With the Work Incentive Program (WIN) scheduled to begin L"1 July, Model Citie s established a WIN program 'l'ask For c e for the Model Cities are a. This ·Task Force will include repre s e ntative s fr om the State Department of F~mily and Children Se rvice s (DFCS)° , Fulton County .DFCS , Georgia State Employment Service, Senior Citizens , and Model Cities . Its purpose will be to develop means of coordin ating whatever services ar~ needed to make WIN successful(day care, e t c.). A.2.d. Several meetings were held t o discuss the problem of hunger. The participants were convened by federal HEW officials and i n cluded representatives of federal and local agenc ies. Subsequently and as a result of the meetings, Model Cities convened a meeting of several community-based agencies at which a U.S. De partment o f Agriculture off ici al explained the new Food For C11i ldre n program. As a result of · that mee t ing, s ome c ornrnuni t:;;"- based agencies actually fi led applications f or t he p r ogr am. A.2 .e. Representative s from the Wa.,;1 ington and Regiona l office s of HEv1 's Social Rehabilitati0n Serv ice met in an all-day briefing s e ssion with Model Ci ties staff members. Thelr purpose s were to learn how the various Model Cities p roposals r e lated to their particular work and to study Model Cities needs. A.2.f. Severa.l meetings were held with the Fulton County DFCS, and Senior Citizens in developing a protec tive services project for senior citizens. A.2.g. Contacts were made with the Board of Education to develop a training program for senior citizen s . This program would train senior citizens who would be working in the Model Cities progr am and person s who would be· working with the senior citizens. �- 4- A.2.h. The proposal by the Fulton County DFCS for Housing Aid to the aged was submitted to and reviewed by Washington federal officials. The program would coordinate information flow on housing for senior citizens and would also emphasize social services . A.2.i . . The he a lth component project entitled Health, .--• Education and Services was not favorably considered by HEW's r egiona l Technical Review Commi ttee . This project, which was for $1.3 million of the total $2 . 9 million health component budget,is considered vital to the over all program. It would provide pre-pai d health care, family outreach workers and dental serv ices . A.2.j. At least partially because of the unfavorable review on the above project, three other projects will probably b e temporarily delayed• 1"hese projects are the Health Facility building, the Group Practice Project a nd the Multi-phasic Screening Center. The latter two projects would have been housed in the Health Facility. Model Cities officials felt tha t without the Health, Education and Ser vice s Pr oject, t he other three proj ects c ould n o t f ully achieve their objectives. A. 2.k. The Family P lannin g Clinic project was still being considered by HEW's Children's Bureau and was expected t o be funded when some r elatively minor matters were resolved . A.2.1. Favor able response was also expected from HEW's Social Rehabilitation Service regarding the pr o pos ed Me nta l Re t ardation Workshop project. A.2.m. The menta l He a lth Plann er pro ject wa s still under in-house review. A.2.n. The Preventive Dental Care Project was rewritten prior to first submission. being A.2.o. Georgia State College was funded by HEW to train the e i ghteen residents on the twenty- five-membe r �-5- Better Health Corpotation Board. The Board, incorporated in January, also has seven professionals. A.2.p . .·,,_ll,," .. . ,) · ' , ;; / ~:: -.;J. ime prevention, major emphasis was in : developing the best possible relationship with every known criminal justice agency working in the area and/or that will have an impact on the area. Contacts included the Atlanta Police Depar t ment, the Fulton county Juvenile Court, Fulton County Probation Department, Fulton County 2arole District Office, State Board of Pardons and Parole , State Division of Children and Youth, State Board ' of Corrections , National Council on Crime and Delinquency, etc. A .2.q. Meetings were held with members of the residents' c rime prevention committees and with members of the profess jn~ ~l-Tech r. ical AdviBory Committee. The 1969 crime prevention plan was introduced and discussed at the meetings, and t he committees were asked to make input for 1969 implementation and · 1970_ planning. A.2.r. The Cr i me Prevention Planner did detailed work in p r eparation for implementation of the crime data compi lation project. This project, the planner f elt, should be one of the fi r st to be implemented in his program be cause it is so interrelated with all aspects of his 1969 program and with future planning. Most of t he negot iations were arranged with the Atlanta Board of Education regarding the ~un~rous educational projects which will receive supple mental funds in 1969 (Total supp lemental funds: $ 2 ,.159,00). F i nal d~tails w !re expected to be worked out in t he coming report ing period. A planning committee was formed to work on key issues which will be involved in the proposed educational complex. Included on the committee are r~presentatives of the Board of Education, Model Cities , residents, consultants, the Housing Authority, and the City Planning Department . The need for more land or a cutback in the program we r e two issues which were fa c ing the committee. �-6- A.2.u. Three meetings were held with regional federal officials, Model Cities officials and Board of Education officials. Discussions centered on new or existing possible funding resources. From these meetings, the Board of Education and Model Cities proceeded on devel oping proposals for money available throught the 11 Talent Search" project. �-7A. 3. Physical Planning A cooperative agr eement was developed between Model Cities, the Atl a nta Housing Authority and the Ci ty Housing · Code Inspection Division regarding propert i es inside and outside 1969 clear ance and rehabil itation areas. Basically , in 1969 Rehabilitation Areas, the Housing Authority will obtain a list of structures which have met city code enforcement standards in recent years. Owners whose properties cur rently mee t the standards will have the option of either taking advantage of possible gr a n ts or loans under the Housing Authority's r ehabilitation program to meet project standards or continuing to maintain structures in compliance with the City Housing Code. A.3.c. In future-designated rehabi litat ion areas other than those o f 1969, t he Housing Code Divis i on will participate on a c omplaint basis only. A .3.d. The Housing Authority will be fully responsible for demo lition activities in 1969 clearance act i on areas. A.3.e. In future-clearance areas the Housing Code Division will become involved only on a complaint basis, Generally, no new equipment installation will be required unless the residents' health or safety would be a factor without such work. A.3.f. The Housing Authority, the City Building Department and Model Cities developed policies and procedures for i nspecting and approving new prefab housing. A.3.g. Model Cities worked with the Georgia State Employment Service {GSES) to plan a construction training program for residents. It would be administered through the Model Cities Housing Center. A.3.h. Meetings were held with representat ives of the Citizens and Southern National Bank regarding their possible assistance in ~taking money and technical assistance available for housing rehabilitation and construction (See Economic Development Section.). �-8- A.3.i. A cooperative agreement was arranged with the City Planning Department which will allow Model Cities to receive adv ance notice of all Model Cities area zoning requests. The advance notice will allow Model Ci ties to review and comment on these important matter s . A.3.j. Discussions were held with representatives of t he Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation. The purpose wa s to persuade the Corporation to provide seed monies and technical assistance in HUD'~ 2 35 and 236 h ousing construction p rograms and in 235 ~J rehabiliat i on p ro jects . The Corporation is a private-non-profit group sponsored by Atlanta Businessmen . A.3.k. The Housing Authority, -!:he Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation and Model Cities agreed to explore the feasibility of relocating existing house s wh i ch are in the path o f the present Atlanta Airport construction program. A.3.1. Model Cities began rev iewing an Urban Design Framework Pr opos al for the areas. The Proposal was developed by a team of professionals. A.3.m. Model Cities worked with the Hous ing Authority in developing a project management control system for the Authority ' s Neighborhood Development Program (NDP) • A.3 .n. Pittsburgh neighborhood businessmen discussed with Model Cities how they could become involved in building businesses in renewa l areas and in becoming active in other areas of the Model Cities Program. A . 3.o. It was agreed to submit design plans to the City's Civic Design Commission. ,A. 3 .p. The nation's first deleqate agency contract was signed with the Atlanta Transit System for initiation of the intra-neighborhood bus system. (See Administration Section.) A.3.q. As of the end of the reporting period, the Atlanta Housing Authority had completed approximately 85% of its rehabilitation area i n spection work. A total of 25 grants had been made , ranging from �-9- $2,800 to $3,000. The total figure for all the grants was $73,576 . Housing Authority Officials said numerous persons in · the area were not qualifying for the gra.nts because of the $3,000 yearly gross-income limitations Eight to ten grantees had completed their rehabilitation work as of the end of the reporting period. A.4. A . 3.r. Regarding loans, between 50 and 60 were being processed for possibl e activation after July 5. Loan applications in the region had been terminated for the 1%8-69 fiscal year, but HUD officials indicated that sufficient monies would be available in the approaching fiscal year. In all; some 150 loan applicat ions had been filed, althoughmany of the applicants were e xpe cted to have yearly gross incomes exceeding the maximum ($8,400 for a family of seven ). A. 3. s . Housing Authority o ffi cials initiated action designed to i n form members of the U .S. Congress that the gross income loan limitations were too low. A congressional act in 1968 had established the limits on any NOP pro ject begun after August 1968. The a ct did not, however , affect previouslyapproved Urban Renewal efforts . Therefore, in the n earby West End Urban Renewal area, there are no i ncome limitations. A.3.;t. In clearance activit ies , 4- parcels had been acquired of the 378 parcels sched uled for 1969 acquisitions. Appraisa ls of. approximately 800/4 of the 378 parcels had been made. Most parcels were e x p ect e d to be acquired within approximately 3 months . A.3.u. Four consultants were hired by the Housing Author ity to work with residents in preparing the land-use plan and a 1970 Neighborhood Development Plan. By the end of the reporting period, two communities had met with their consultants. Economic Development {Employment and Industrial-Commercial Development} A~4.a. Intensive recruiting was curtailed during most of the reporting period because of the delay in ·funding. �-10- .--- -- However, the May 20 Atlanta-Model Cities - HUD supplemental-fund contract signing was to result in much g re ater a ctivity during the coming reporting period a It was d e cided that the Economic Opportunity Atlanta Neighborhood Center Manpower Units would conduct the call-in and referral work for the program. A.4.b. Atlanta Model Cities fa iled to convince the U .S . Labor Department and HUD that federal training f u nds should b e used to train residents in power sewing machine operations. The significanc;e of HUD's inabi lity to fund this pro j ect was that it would almos t be impossible to assist several companies which h ad expressed previous intere_st in locat i ng o r expanding their operations in the are a. Hundre ds o f res ident-filled j obs would have been involved. A.4.c. Southland Engineers and Surveyors Corporation decided to apply f o r an MA-5 contract under the National Al liance of Businessmen's program. The appli c a tion would be for fi v e app licants to be trained as rodmen. If accepted, i t was expected to be signed in early June. A.4.d. Discussions were held with Army/Navy recruiters to respond to their questions relative to the Department of Defense's lowering enlistment standards for ghetto r esidents. A.4. e- 'P. meeting was h eld with Church's Golden Fried Chicken to d e termine the feasibility of its establishing t wo s tores in the Model Cities area. _Each store would e mploy as many as eight to ten residents . Fu ture meetin g s were to be held when plans were more definiteo A.4 .f. Model Neighborhood, Inc ., a resident, non-profit development corp oration, received a grant from the Economic Development Administration for approximately $87,000o The money would be u sed to provide technical assistance to new businesses, t? identify and develop businesses which would be owned and managed by .MNI, to help develop manufacturing facilities in the area, to provide technical assistance to neighborhood groups seeking to establish local deve~opment corporat i ons, etc. �-1 1- A.4.g. In add i tion, MNI req uested $35 , 000 in supplemental funds from Mod el Ci ties . The money requested would be used t o supple ment its programs listed above. A.4.h. MNI had previo u s ly been given an EDA g r ant of $6,000 through Mod el Cit i e s a nd the City of Atlanta. Most o f those f u nds had b e en used to b e gin initial developmen t o f a shoppin g center . MNI a lso had developed a s e wing ma chin e operation in the area. It employs appr oxima tely 13 women . A . 4 .i . The Mode l Cit i e s Economic Development staff studied t he p roblems of a r e s ident busine sswoman to gain an ins igh t i n to some common obstacles fac i ng many a r ea business pe ople . The woman's main problems c o n c erned relocation o f h er customers because of urban renewa l a n d unco o r d i n ated efforts b y public a g encies. A.4. j . Techn i c al assist ance was give n to the JohnsonFluker Candy Company on -var i ous employer p rograms offered by the Ge orgia Stat e Emp loyment Se rvice . A.4.k. An important meeting wa s held with a rep re s ent a tive of Stokes and Wood Consultant fir m of Washington, D . C.; and HUD representatives. The pr i mary purpose was to e~plain the firm ' s agreement with the U.S. ~ Department of -l.,p.bor to promo te union involvement in the Model Cities Program. It appeared that local unions in Atlanta do not desire to recruit individuals who have no experience in t he building trades. A.4.1. Attempts to receive b ids for the leasing o f two jobmobiles resulted only i.n the possibility that three companies might submi t bids. The main reasons for lack of definite bid submittals appeared to be the cancel l ation clause after one year, high insurance risk, and low resa le value. The jobmobile was still scheduled to be one of the first 1969 employment projects. �A.5. State Participation A.5.a. Model Cities continued to keep various State departments i n formed as to its plans . Especially active during thi s reporting period was the Georgia State Employment Service. GSES continued ·to supply one coordinator, one planner, and three other staff members. Mod el Cities was expected to reimburse GSES for pers onnel e x penses this year. B. Data Collection B.l.a. There was a delay in releasing preliminary reports on the important 10,000-interviewee surve y being conducted b y the U . S. Department of Labor ' s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Atlanta's survey is being conducted in the area served by the Concentrated Employment Program (CEP) and in more affluent sect i ons . B . l . b. Or iginally, a general r e por t was to have been released in Ma rch . By t h e end of the reporting period, BLS o ff icials sai d the earl i est a p r e liminary repor t would be released would be in or after August. The final rep or t , which wi ll contain more specific information, was not expected to b e released b efo re December o r the first part of 1 97 0. B.l . c. All interviews were expected to be completed by June 30. c. Proble ms c.1. The major p roblem concerned the many scheduling adjustments made necessary by the delay in funding prior to the May 20 contract signing. Delegate agencies were required in some instances to change significantly their scheduled milestones. In at least one instance, a consultant told Model Cities officials that he might not be able to begin his project because he had had to place his manpower and machines on another project. �-13- II. c.2. Another major problem resulted in the refusal by HUD and the U.S. Department of Labor to allocate monies for the training of sewing machine operators. (See industrial <'levelopment section.) C.3. Labor unions did little to ensure that they will significantly assist ghetto res~dents to obtain union membership . (See industrial-commercial section.) C.4. A third major problem was the prohibition against granting any rehabilitat ion l oan s to any · family uni t ear ning more than a maximum of $8,400 a y e ar. Many needy familie s were not mee t ing the min i mum income limitat ion s a s of the e nd o f t he r eporting period . (See Physical Services Section.) ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE A. Policy and . Advi s ory Gr oups A.l . a. B. No changes were made on the Executive Board, the highest p o licy-making g roup i n the program. Howeve r , negotiat i on s began with s ome potent i al new member s t o t h e Technical Ad visory Bo ard , a gr ou p comp o sed of pub lic a n d p rivate exp erts in variou s dis c i plines . The new me mber s would f unc tion as a dvisor s t o the Plans a nd Evaluation staff. Staff B. l .a.

R-97(CRP) Community Renewal Program Approval of Housing Cost s Study The Housing Costs Study for the Atlanta Community Improvement Program has been reviewed and found to be satisfactory. It is recommended that the Model Cities Agency be advised of the following : a. To consider the recommenda tions and conclusions contained in the Housing Cos ts Study in planning relocation resources, especially as they concern housing p r ef erences, timi ng of development of resources, treatment of particular neighborhoods or sub-areas, the style and cost of housing and full utilization of HUD-assisted housing programs. b. To coordinate the Study recommendat ions with proposed NDP activities within the Model Cities Area. c. To include in the Relocation Program for the Model Cities Area the matters included in paragraph a ab ove, in addition to reviewing estLuates of displacement found in the Study. d. Relative to housing resources proposed for relocation of residents in or from the Model Cities Area, displacement should not exceed the supply of new housing which can be assured of development within the same displacement period. In view of the experimental nature of t he Model Cities effort and the . recommendations in the Study to use all possible methods and programs to keep housing prices low, it may be necessary and desirable to show resources on a year-to-year basis with first year displacement limited to the resource supply for that �2 year, allowing the time for development of innovative housing programs and in attaining necessary sponsorship on an open-ended basis. This would require assurance that displa cement and resource supply will be reviewed annually wi t h ame nded Relocation Programs provided to HUD for concurrence before displa cement occurs.

  • Text: September 18, 1969 ont To: Mr. Johnny Johnson se wr MEMORANDUM From: Dan E,. Sweat, Jr. Subject: Acministrative Procedures We have had several discussions in the past concerning the exact admini- strative relationship that the Model Cities organization should have in relationship to the Mayor's Office and the balance of the City organization. This whole discussion is, of course, complicated by the special organization required by the federal government such as the Executive Board and the other citizen participation organizations. There seems to be no doubt on the federal level and in the mind of the general public however, that the administration of the Model Cities Program is a responsibility of the Mayor's Office of the various cities. To date, we have tacitly recognized this and, technically, the administrative procedures have established the organization as a division of the Mayor's Office. In actual practice, however, you have functioned as a department head and your organization has, in effect, been treated as a separate department of the City. We have been fortunate and your staff is to be commended in that we have had relatively good communications and cooperation even though our lines of administrative authority have not always been explicit. Even so, some confusion has existed among the various agencies and departments of the City. Mayor Allen has discussed this overall question with me several times and most recently has directed me to meet with you and develop procedures which will have the effect of bringing Model Cities into the direct admini-+ strative line of authority of the Mayor's Office.

  • Text: — 123 Vanira Avenue, Southeast . Atlanta, Georgia 30315 September 2, 1%9 Dear Comrades: It is with deep regret that the program that was conceived for the purpose of motivating more resident participation and training has taken on the pattern of not more, but a fewer number of residents taking part in the program. The possibilities of helping the citizens of the Model Cities comunity grow in stature has been placed behind a painted wall by a few of the residents that were elected to serve without bias for the better- ment of a total community with funds funneled into the target area for that purpose. As of now the residents have the chance to do for themselves a job that was long needed - to be able to think of expansion areas and the correct way to expand. It is within this structure I pray the Model Cities Mass Convention, Incorporated will operate in the future. The juvenile acts that are taking place in the operation of the Board of Directors at this time can only lead to a state of dictatorship that can impede the growth of any worthwhile organization. At the time of the election for officers of the Model Cities Mass Convention, Incorporated, I was elected treasurer, but find I cannot, nor will not, assume the responsibility of that office under the conditions listed herein: 1. When advanced funds were received from EOA to take care of the community workers payroll, the Chairman of the Board, Deacon Peters, instructed the secretary to make the bank deposit, secure checks and pay off the workers. 2. The aforementioned assignment was later delegated to Mr. John Hood; a Board Member. 3. Mr. Hood stated that he was requested, but refused to pay fram these monies the salary of a secretary that is not officially on the payroll of Model Cities Mass Convention, Incorporated. 7 September 2, 1969 Page 2 All of these transactions took place without the benefit of vouchers, drafts, etc., that would enable the treasurer to keep accurate records. Under the existing conditions the need for a treasurer is nil. There- fore, before more valuable time is lost by the Board, certain guidelines should be studies and become a workable pattern. I recognize the fact that no individual or group can exist without making errors, and the experiences gained by such means should prove of value for future operations. I hold no animosity toward anyone in the organization and shall con- tinue my support for the total program, but with the slovenly methods used to date, I have no alternative other than tender my resignation as treasurer effective immediately. Respectfully, ) Vb flere, K CL Laces (Mrs.) Martha L. Weems = CC: Deacon lewis Peters, Chairman, Board of Directors Mr. Johnny Johnson, Director, Model Cities . Mr. William W.

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. R. Earl Landers = \ From: Dan Sweat Subject: Review of Code Enforcement Policy in Model Cities Area Attached is a copy of a memorandum from Jim Wright to me spelling out the revised policy of the Atlanta Housing Authority and the City's Housing Code Division in the Model Cities area. This came about as a result of problems being called to our attention in the Adair Park Area where the city had-completed a house by house rehabilitation program within the last few years. You might recall at the time we were discussing the Model Cities Program with residents of that area, they were very much concerned with housing code activity which was going on at that time. We assured them we would not place them in double jeopardy when the Model Cities Program started. There were indications that we were doing this by requiring the same property owners to bring their property in line with the new code standards of the Atlanta Housing Authority under the Model Cities Program. This revised policy was adopted.after a meeting in my office with officials of the Housing Authority, the Building Department and Model Cities. DS :fy cc: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. Mr. Johnny Robinson

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this program is to build- the capacity of Medel Cities residents in _te respond knowledgeably and effectively to the requirements of the Model Cities Program by establishing responsible neighborhood organizations se that they can assess their problems and can work effectively with city government and other local institutions in the planning, execution and evaluative of pregrams, It is our understanding that the Modet Cities Administration and OEO wili join in this project as part of an effort to build effective and responsible community participation and to make available funds and assistance to model neighborhood groups in both First and second roundcities,. Two major objectives of the program are: * 1. To provide citizens with a diversity of exoeritence and capability in local institutional planning, program implementation and program evaluation. 2. To foster maximun feasible intepration of organization and function by CAA and CDA neighborhood groups and to plan and move toward the eventual consolidation of resident participation organizations covering the model neighborhood area. Inherent jn making their training, ‘echnical assistance, and planning funds available is the assumption by OFO and HUD that citizens have a - major role to play in both the Community Action Program and the Model Cities Program. Further, both O£O'’s and HUD's philosophy wracknowledges the right of people affected by public programs to have access to and influence on the process by which decisions about their lives are made; --accepts that many of the best intentioned officials and technicians are often, by their training, experiences, and life-styles, unfamiliar with or even insensitive to the problems and aspirations of model neighborhood residents; therefore, resident ideas and priorities can result in more relevant, sensitive, and effective plans and programs; ~-recognizes that the process of participation makes it possible for those citizens formerly outside the system to learn how it functions and how to make it function in their interest-and that dhe peveeee makes it possible for residents to strengthen existing skills and to develop the kind of new skills needed for effective abeduenstilp beyond as well as within the Model Cities Program. in light of the above and in order to overcome these problems, OEO and HUD are encouraging CAA's, CDA's and the neighborhood groups to test this technical assistance strategy through the use of these funds. Funds allocated to neighborhood groups under these grants may be used to provide planning, training and technical assistance services to neighborhood residents tricluding but not limtted to the Following: ay 1. Full-time staff for neighborhood groups to pian and develop services under these programe. °2,. Wormal training prograns for neighborhood resident groups and staff, 7 oo Collection and dissemination of rvelevant information about Model ‘Cities and related programs to ncighborhood residents, 4a Retaining consultants. {iowyers, community organizers, planners, programmatic spectalists, etc.) to advise on substantive programs and planning. 5.4. To develop and carry out citizen evaluation of the Model Cities and all other planning activities that affect the neighborhood, 6. A portion of grant funds may be used by netghborhood groups to contract directiy with oreanizations eof their own choosing which are regularly efgaged in providing TATA, T1, PROCESS PRIOR TO WORK PROGRAW I. The CAA and CDA will discuss this program. (delete remainder of sentence, ) 2, They will discuss their commitment for the next twelve months of funds for training and technical ‘assistance services Lo neighborhood groups. 3. adn : Designation of neighborhood groups to plan the program and receive funds by the CAA and CDA. The neighborhood group with assistance acceptable to it from the CAA and CDA will decide what training and Lanbntcel assistance they require for the dauedo geen of the proposal for neighborhood group support Funds. If this assistance is not available in the city, the CAA and CDA will make every effort to obtain it. We hope OEO and the other Federal, state and local agencies swelaead in the Model Cities Program will make it available to the neighborhood group ~- assistance which is acceptable to the group. If the neighborhood group or groups feel that promised training and technical assistance is not being received or is inadequate, we, the CAA and CDA will use our good offices to remedy the situation. III. Work Program, Ls The neighborhood group with the above technical assistance will prepare a formal written application. They wil) also prepare a summary of that application for circulation to residents of the model neighborhood. seek the interim board and/or membership of the neighborhood group has approved the application it should be submitted through the CAA and CDA to OFO and a copy sent to HUD.
