Atlanta, Georgia 30311 RE: Project Georgia R+90 West End Urban Redevelopment Area Parcel 90-3 940 Mathews Street, 3.W. Dear Mr. Arnold: Reference is made to your letter of August 28, 1967, to Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor, relative to the above captioned property, which is owned by your Mother, Mrs. Sarah H. Arnold. All property that is acquired by The Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta, is appraised by two well-qualified, independent appraisers and the prices paid are the ones established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. While it is true that we have to resort to condemnation of property at times, this action is not used to coerce property owners but is used for their protection. The law states that the condemning authority must pay just and adequate compensation as of _ the day of the taking and the courts have defined this as market value. In all cases we strive to treat owners equally and fairly in negotiation for the purchase of their property. I can assure you that the improvements that were made to the property were taken into consideration when the final appraisal was made. Our staff makes a eareful review and an inspection of each property before a price is established. COPY Mr. Jerry I. Arnold ~2- September 13, 1967 If we may be of further service to you in this matter, or if you wish to discuss the matter further, we will be most happy to talk with you. Very truly yours, M. B. Satterfield Executive Director ec: Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor Honorable Lester Maddox, Governor Honorable Herman Talmadge, Senator MBS: JTH: gg

  • Text: July 20, 1967 Mrs. Henry H. Ware, Jr. 404 Blackland Road, N. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30305 Dear Mrs. Ware: Mr. W. R. Wofford, Building Official of the City of Atlanta, has advised me that your property at the above locations is situated in the Bedford-Pine Urban Renewal Project area. Property located in approved Urban Renewal Project areas is under the jurisdiction of the Atlanta Housing Authority, the City's agent for redevelopment. A check with the Atlanta Housing Authority reveals that this project, which encompasses your property, is in the planning stage and funds for acquisition have not been approved by the Federal Government. However, the representatives of the Authority have stated that they anticipate acquiring the property in about a year. If you would like to make minor repairs and improvements in order to make the property rentable for this short period of time, you, as owner, have every right to do so, although the city will not require you to do so. If you desire further information, I suggest that you talk to Mr. Greenleaf (523-6074) of the Atlanta Housing Authority for guidance in this matter. Sincerely yours, ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor IAIr/br

April 26, 1967 Mr. R. Earl Landers Administrative Assistant Mayor's Office 68 Mitchell Street, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Landers: Thank you for taking the time yesterday to discuss the matter of utilizing a city facility or structure in our proposed Day Care Project. As I mentioned, the major function of Senior Citizen Services in the community is to survey the needs of older persons, work with other groups to improve services and to inaugurate new services when and where needed. All of our study and inquiry focuses atten- tion on the following need -- a plan of services to assist older persons who want to remain in their own home or apartment rather than move into an institu- tional facility, but who cannot safely do so without certain supportive and protective help. Senior Citizen Services is proposing to establish such a plan of services. One of the key elements in the plan is a Day Care Center where the partici- pants can receive personal care during the daytime, enjoy varied activities, eat a nourishing, well- balanced meal and in other ways be reinforced and supported in their desire to be independent persons rather than someone's burden. The proposal outlining this plan, which we are sub- mitting for funding under Title IV of the Older Americans Act, will be strengthened or weakened depending upon our ability to provide a physical facility as part of the local share of the cost of the project. We are turning to the city of Atlanta and to the Mayor's office for help with this problem and are hopeful that the city might be able to join with us to demonstrate a new and useful service. Best personal regards. Sincerely, Albert E. Horvath AEH:mr

ROSS BARNETT Assistant Director May 10, 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: As you may be aware, the Georgia Hospital Association has entered a bid on land parcel D-10b of the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta for purpose of erecting a permanent headquarters building for the Association. This land, at the southwest corner of Houston Street and Piedmont Avenue, will provide a convenient central location for our services. As you know, we conduct a great many educational programs for the hospitals attended by administrators and boards of trustees of these institutions from every community in Georgia. The need for expansion of hospital and health facilities also explains the need for expansion of the services offered by our organization, a voluntary Associa- tion now in its 38th year of existence. In January the Association submitted a bid of $42,000 for the land along with a redevelopment proposal providing for a three-story building. We later, however, requested permission to reduce our immediate plan to a two-story building more in keeping with our needs and resources for the remainder of this decade. Our development plans are no less permanent. We simply desire, as does any voluntary association, to develop a headquarters facility in stages as the mem- bership grows and increases its investment in association services. The head- quarters building will be enlarged in future years to meet these needs. The Policy Committee of the Housing Authority, headed by Mr. Rodney M. Cook, meets this Friday, May 12, to reconsider our development proposal. Any recommendation in our behalf you might give to Mr. Cook's committee will be most appreciated. With \best wishes, I am ogan tive Director PRESIDENT: PRESIDENT - ELECT: TREASURER: W. DANIEL BARKER DEXTON R. WHITLEY Damon D. KING CRAWFORD W.

  • Text: May 5, 1967 Mr. Albert E. Horvath Executive Director Senior Citizen Services 719 Glenn Building Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Horvath: It was a pleasure meeting with you the other day and to receive your letter of April 26th outlining some of the major functions of the Senior Citizen Services to the community. At the time of our discussion, I was of the opinion that the physical facilities needed would be of a permanent nature. Yesterday afternoon in a conversation with George Heery, he pointed out that this was not necessarily true, and that you could probably utilize houses acquired by the Atlanta Housing Authority in connection with urban renewal projects on a temporary basis until such time as it was necessary for the houses to be denm- lished. With this in mind I have contacted Mr. Les Perseils, Director of Redevelopment, of the Atlanta Housing Authority and he assures me that the Housing Authority probably would have such facilities, and that they would be most happy to cooperate with you in any way. it is, therefore, suggested that you contact Mr, Perselis directly and see if the Housing Authority has facilities that might fit your needs, Sincerely yours, R. Earl Landers CC: Mr. George Heery Administrative Assistant

I appreciate your offer to have your Building Inspector look at the property described below, but I can tell you exactly what he will find - - three derelict old duplex dwellings, all empty except one unit ? ccupied by Willie Brooks at number 264, who has flowers and vegetables growing in his yard. The property recorded as 25 4- 256, 258- 260, and 264-266 Clifton Place N.E. was originally owned by my grandmother, willed to an aunt, and subsequently came into my possession in late 1966, after having been administered by a bank since June of 1962. During the bank's administration The Housing Authority indicated that area was to be condemned, so the bank made no repairs, and the tenants moved off. When the property came into my hands it had become a slum. I would like to rebuild, but I do not know what is my status. Do I own the property, or does The Housing Authority? And if The Housing Authority has jurisdiction over it, why cannot that agency pay the taxes ?

ATLANTA 18, GEOI\GIA June 2, 1967 c. Delius General Manager City Parks Department 901 City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Mr. Jack Dear Sir: Since January of this year efforts have been made to establish some per• w..anent program that would involve a majority of the people in this community in various activities that would channel their energies in a desirable direction. Because it was announced early in this year that no funds would be available in 1967 for this type of program, solicitation of volunteer workers was attempted. Some volunteers were secured and various activities are now being supervised by them. One out-of-town ministerial student worked with some basketball teams during the school year but has now returned to hi~ home in Pennsylvania. Among the present activities are softball, basketball, dramatics, art, Bible ~tud;r, eto. Additional euper'Vi1ory help could be uee4 wi1th eome ot the above, but the pressing need is for trained supervision of teen-agers. Some boys utilize the facilities of the George Washington Carver Boys Club; however, this still leaves the problem teens without adequate supervision. In view of more recent announcements regarding the availability of funds and the consequent development of recreational programs, it is most urgent that our area is not . over-looked. It is felt that this is a reasonable request iri that we are mairtly interested in assignment of personnel-to supervise the use of the existing facilities. The existing facilities include a large recreation field for softball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc. These facilities are open to the General Public. -~ xrr?o r· u r•y E RO l~r.o,.,Y ,._ �... ·, Mr. Jack C.

HORVATH Thank you for taking the time yesterday to discuss the matter of utilizing a city facility or structure in our proposed Day Care Project. EXEC UT IVE D I RECT O R As I mentioned, the major function of Senior Citizen Services in the community is to survey the needs of older persons, work with other groups to improve services and to inaugurate new services when and where needed. All of our study and inquiry focuses attention on the following need -- a plan of services to assist older persons who want to remain in their own home or apartment rather than move into an institutional facility, but who cannot safely do so without certain supportive and protective help. Senior Citizen Services is proposing to establish such a plan of services . One of the key elements in the plan is a Day Care Center where the partici pants can receive personal care during the daytime , enjoy varied activities , eat a nourishing , well balanced meal and in other ways be reinforced and suppo r ted in their desi r e to be independent pe r sons r athe r than someone ' s burden .

C. Dear Sir: Thank you for your letter of February 9, 1967, which arrived in my absence from the city. I am glad to have this opportunity to supplement and clarify the facts surrounding the report by the Comptroller General to the Congress, a copy of which you sent me. As I am sure you know, the function of the General Accounting Office is to investigate the policies, procedures and performance of Federal agencies and not to conduct fiscal audits on local housing authorities. In this instance the General Accounting Office was reviewing the PHA policy on investments of funds held by housing authorities. Fiscal audits of all housing authorities are conducted by auditors of the PHA (now the HA.A) it self. The requirements of the PHA for the period covered were that there should be a forecast made quarterly to determine cash operating needs for that quarter, and to schedule the retention of ready cash for the purpose of meeting these needs. This requirement was being fully complied with for the entire period. The basis for that policy is found in the Annual Contributions Cont;ract between the Atlanta Housing Authority and the PHA, Section 202, Paragraph E of Part II: 11 If at any time the Local Authority has monies on deposit in the General Fund in excess of the p rudent ly estimated~ for the next 90 days, such excess funds shall be invested, etc . 11 The fiscal audits conducted by FHA for the period 1960 thr ough 1963 investigated our investments and found no fault . The PHA audito r in 1963, however, pointed out that the Atlanta Housing Author ity had $10 , 000 of oper ating funds , not ex cess funds, on deposit i n t hr ee dormant bank a ccounts which could have been i nvested . This was done . I n r etrospect, after GAO had r aised the question , FHA took t h e position that their auditor s had been too c onservativ e in pr evi ou s yeat's. r. ,... �. ;- ' _:.: ,: . 1.. -· l~J · AdOO.' \ " The Honorable Fletcher Thompson February 17, 1967 -2- Reference to this will be found on Page 24 of the GAO Report in Appendix No. II. In the 1964 audit, which was conducted after GAO had visited us, the PHA audit recommended use of a method outlined in the Local Housing Authority Handbook. This suggested method was not available to us for the first 3 1/4 years of the report period. Furthermore, even after receiving it we were using a 60-day projection period instead of the 90 days required, and felt that our years of experience provided an equally sound and accurate basis for cash requirement estimates as did the guidelines. We disagree with the General Accounting estimates as to how much might have been earned on additional interest revenue during the 12 months ended May 31, 1964. Balances on hand fluctuate sharply so that the average cash balance is no index of the continuing opportunity to invest funds. A large number of separate accounts is involved. Dates of large payments are sometimes deferred for good reason. However, when looking back at what had occurred in previous months, the GAO was able to cite as a possibility a narrow margin between cash on hand and estimated needs. More importantly, to achieve the narrow margin which the GAO achieved, could. not be done in advance without very frequent reviews requiring a large increase in the amount of employee time required, and the increased interest earnings would be gross, and not net, savings. r While the GAO estimated that an earning of $12,000 could have been made, an audit by PHA immediately afterward came up with a smaller figure. It was our estimate at that time that the net saving, taking into consideration employee time and other overhead, would be a smaller portion of the $12,000 and, in fact, might be virtually offsetting. At any rate, as you will see from our remarks on pages 26, 27 and 28 that we went far beyond the guidelines proposed by the Management Manual';! and adopted a regular semi-m6nthly review, plus individual reviews when large funds were received between semi-monthly reviews. This was done prior to September 9, 1965. Shortly thereafter we went to regular weekly reviews, a practice which we suggested to PHA be made national policy. Although PHA did not accept our suggestion in that form, we understand that this is being recommended and u s ed widely. We in the Authority were surprised and disappointed that both Atlanta newspapers released the story without giving us an opportunity to respond and that the story, which was filed from Washington, appeared to have overlooked the material contained in Appendix III of the r eport itself, which if carefully read throws a somewhat different light on the report. Please let us know if there is any additional information which you wish. Sincer ely, MBS: dm 1 ~~z:~ ~ ~l.J.J M. B. Satt erfi e l r' Exe cutive Dir e l \, I ' 1ou~ 1 r. br �.

Proposals are to be opened in the office of the Atlanta Housing Authority on July 19, 1967, at 10:00 A.M.

URBAN REDEVELOPMENT PROTECTS THE FUTURE OF YOUR INVESTMENT In any Urban Redevelopment Area, no pro- posal can receive consideration that con- templates an unpermitted use. This assures good neighbors and permanence of values. All proposals must include a statement by the redeveloper showing financial responsi- bility and capability to successfully complete the proposed improvements set forth in pre- liminary drawings and a narrative descrip- tion. These are carefully considered before a determination is made as to which pro- posal is to be accepted. The Agency will accept such proposal, if any, as it deems to be in the public interest and in furtherance of the purposes of the Georgia Redevelop- ment Law; however, no proposal for pur- chase at a price less than the established minimum price will be considered. In evalu- ating the proposals, the Agency will consider the proposed price to be paid for the land; the compatibility of the proposed develop- ment to other existing and planned improve- ments in the area; the excellence of the pro- posed design and the quality of the overall planning of the proposed development; and the size of the proposed development, par- ticularly as it relates to effect on the tax digest. These tracts are in a protected area —this is fundamental to the whole basic concept of Urban Redevelopment. Ask about tracts in other Atlanta Urban Redevelopment Areas,

Rosen and Associates. Our inability to understand the basis of decision stem from the following cirewmstances and/or facts. 1. Your action to pass a resolution to waive irregularities in the Rosen proposal, was within the discretionary powers of the authority and was st in the invitation for bids. However, to exercise this power should have been limited to a situation where there were no other quali- fied proposals submitted, Further, to exercise this power in this instance shows partiality and discrimination against the other biders. Every Re- developer was aware of the bid requirements and should have been required to fully comply. Those that did not comply should have been disqualified from competition. 2. Some city officials stated that “to give the contract for Rockdale to the "Negro" group would have meant outsiders wouldn't have bid on the cme res because most professional advice favored the “White” group's take exception to this type of thinking. In the firet place, the ied. And since our plan was second best, (in your opinion) it should have received the contract on Rockdale. Secondly, how are you ever wong ny encourage locat participation under the circumstances of in- 4, If your lawyers were of the opinion that it was important to open the bids on Rockdale in room 824 because the invitation for bid called fortthis action, then they should also share our opinion that every other requirement of th&t document be complied with. Gentlemen, the words competitive bid means to give all interested parties the same opportunities to comply with the rules and then judge them im- partially.

Mr. Waller of your office, with whom I have recently talked, confirmed the fact that one of our representatives (since I am a taxpayer) made the colossal error of mentioning to some of the tenants at this address that he was there to appraise the property which would eventually be turned over to some city sreleet, Since that time, the tenants have eee teat ta and I have now a vacant 12-unit apartment building in an area that is high in vandalism. I am paying my taxes and my insurance as prescribed by law. Please tell me to whom I can appeal in an attempt to arrive at some act of justice involving this piece of property. y experience with the Atlanta Housing Authority, through the years, has been most gratifying and fair; and I am sure that somewhere in the inte mental structure of the city some mistake has been made. roximately three years ago I = hone casas ie the city, through its many tors, to to staedard” citing specific improvements to . anée. ty seat of which was between three and five thousand dollars. Mark you, this investment is hardly three years old. W. B. Satterfield Two / It may be that the best I can expect to receive from this letter is a very courteous, sorrowful reply such as given me by Mr. Waller; but I certainly think you should be acquainted with the facts listed above. I am taking the liberty of sending a copy of this to Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr., because I feel that there are many people with a common experience. Sincerely yours, R, C.
