GLADIN, Director January 10, 1969 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City of Atlanta a ) City Hall ) Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: In developing a new Housing Code Compliance Program the Plan epartment and Building Department are convinced that a city-wide field survey of housing’ - conditions must be conducted in the second quarter of 1969. A new survey is the only way to obtain the information necessary to establish the level of accomplishment of the original Housing Code Compliance Program and to develop realistic priorities for housing code inspections for the next several years, No accurate or complete information has been maintained on housing condition changes within the city since the 1965 Community Improvement Program Survey, and an efficient, new program cannot be developed from obsolete management information. Both the Building Department and Planning Department believe the proposed survey will facilitate the development of a more effective Housing Code Compliance Program. In short, there is no other way to quantitatively and qualitatively measure the level of accomplishment of the first five year Housing Code Compliance Program, to wit: which areas have been stabilized; which areas have regressed; which areas are continuing to decline and for what reasons; which areas require more constant surveillance than that provided to this point; how can we more effectively apply our personnel and what additional personnel will be required to halt slum and blight development and spread, etc. Who should undertake the proposed survey? For several reasons, the two Departments feel that Housing Code Inspectors are ideally suited to conduct the necessary field survey: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -2- January 10, 1969 The original five year inspection program has been accomplished ahead of schedule. All of the original inspections have been completed. What remains are uncomplied cases which can be assigned to the Sector Inspectors, plus handling city-wide inspections on a complaint basis. Thus, the Concentrated Area Inspectors would be in a logical position wherein they could begin immediate preparations for the proposed field survey. . The proposed field survey must be initiated in the next few months. HUD requirements on the Workable Program provide for a Housing Code Compliance Program. The Workable Program must be recertified in September, 1969 and current information is essential to its preparation. Since the survey will take at least three months to complete, actual field work must begin by the first of March at the very latest to be of greatest use. Consequently, time being a major factor we must use those personnel most familiar with the type of information being sought. . The inspectors are better qualified than anyone else in the city to conduct a Housing Conditions Survey. They have inspected the city's houses for five years; they know what to look for and can be quickly trained in survey techniques because of their background in housing terminology, conditions and experience in meeting the public. The inspectors will be required to furnish continuous information to keep the survey data updated. In other words, their observations during the course of later inspections will be fed back into the central record keeping system to keep the housing conditions statistics current. The experience they will gain while conducting the survey will be invaluable training for this future role, and The inspectors will gain valuable familiarity with all areas of the city during the survey which will be of use to them at a later date when they are making inspections and attempting to obtain compliances. Since the present program is running ahead of schedule relative to original inspections, it is recommended that extensive time and manpower be devoted to uncomplied cases in order to gain more lasting compliances prior to initiating any new program. As soon as the field survey techniques and policies are developed, ten of the inspectors would be assigned to the survey. This would leave the other ten inspectors to concentrate on obtaining compliances and to cover city-wide inspections on a complaint basis, The ten Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -3- January 10, 1969 inspectors on the survey team can completely cover the city in three to four months, enabling the Planning Department to use this information in developing a new Housing Code Compliance Program. In turn, the new Housing Code Compliance Program can be incorporated into the 1969 Workable Program, A more complete and detailed explanation of the contents of this letter is contained in "Housing Code Compliance Program: Interim Proposal, 1969." Background material is contained in "The Housing Code Compliance Program: Background and Present Situation (Problems and Recommendations for Action)." Both of these are products of departmental staff and attached hereto. We seek your endorsement of this proposal. If further explanation or additional information is required we will be pleased to meet with you at your convenience. Sincerely, CM. POWs Collier B. Gladin Planning Director ~Btebimsies Te.

SMITH , INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS CHIEF HOUSING CODE INSPECTOR ELMER H. MOON, E.E., P.E. ASST. INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS Memorandum for File From: Mr. J. A. Smith, Chief Inspector Friday afternoon at 2:00 P.M. Mr. Wofford asked me to attend a meeting with him. At the meeting were the Mayor, Mr. Sterns, Mr. Gladin and Mr. Openshaw. The meeting was called because of the letter from Mr. Wofford to Mr. Landers requesting advice as to whe- ther the Building Department should mail notices to owners to com- plete repairs to structures, residential structures located within the Markham-Haynes and Lightning Areas, It was pointed out that this would probably be and conflict with the zoning in the area. In the discussion that followed, it was decided that the proper method to follow would be for us to proceed with mailing the notices to the owners for full code com- pliance and then when owners came in to obtain permits, they would be informed of the need for obtaining a variance in zoning to allow repairs to be made. At this time, owners would be referred to Mr. Gladin who would set up a meeting before the Zoning Variance Commit- tee with no charge to be paid by the owners. Then, after the Vari- ance Committee agreed for the repairs to be made, then the Building Official would be clear to issue permit for said repairs. We are planning to proceed with the mailing of notices to gen- eral owners throughout these areas and in the case of Mr. Andrew Stephens, who is one of the major owners in the area, we plan to take a slightly different approach. Mr. Stephens last Thursday advised me that he was anticipating a loan from Mills B. Lane, C & S Bank, to proceed with the repair of probably every other structure which was owned by Mr. Stephens. He indicated that a definite plan might be submitted to Mr. Wofford for permits to be issued on these properties judged suitable for repairs by him during the week beginning March 17th. In view of this, both Mr. Wofford and myself felt that it might be well to hold Mr. Stephen's notices in the office at least until the latter part of the week of the 17th to see if plans are submitted for permits issuance. If this does not take place, I plan to contact Mr. Stephens and ask that he come by the office or that I be allowed to meet with him at his convenience to serve the notices of repairs to him in person and possibly discuss an amicable method of reaching a successful conclusion to our problems in this area. ATLANTA THE DOGWOOD CITY sere eet BoE In rehabilitation areas other than those of the current action year, the City Building Department will participate in response to compliants or undertake investigation based on any information that indicates a need for early inspection. New Housing Code cases will be undertaken in accordance with Department personnel capability and on a full code compliance basis. Demolition Policy - Model Neighborhood Area The Atlanta Housing Authority is fully responsible for demolition activities in NDP current year clearance action areas. When emergency situations occur necessitating prompt action on particular structures in the clearance areas, the City Building Department will become involved by referral from the Atlanta Housing Authority. In demolition areas other than those of current year action areas, the Building Department will become involved only on a compliant basis. Full code compliance will be effected with the exception . that generally no installation of additional equipment or facilities will be required. A possible exception will arise if it is deter- mined that the failure to install additional equipment may result in immediate jeopardy to the health, safety on general welfare of inhabitants in a structure. “Assistance in the determination of — this exception may be requested from a “technical board" to be developed in conjunction with the Model Cities Housing Center and NDP Project Office. Staff It has been further concluded that if at all possible the Model Cities Program should provide some code enforcement staff to supplement the limited personnel resources of the Building Department in the Model Neighborhood Area.

S.W., ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30313 February 14, 1969 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: It is with deepest concern that this complaint is forwarded to you. A person can suffer just so much bureaucratic Pponeeeon before something has to be done. I am attaching a copy of a letter recieved by us around the first of the year. This is based on an ordinance adopted by the aldermanic board and approved by you on December 16 and December 18 respectively. This particular amended section of the code is not practical to perform or to enforce, this seems to be entirely harassment of the citizens of this city who use gas, and for any plumber or person involved in connecting of appliances. If this section of the code is retained it will be necessary for us and I am sure, Many other contractors, to discontinue the practice of connecting heaters, gas dryers or gas ranges. The performance of work under the conditions ‘of the amendment would be prohibitive for us and for our customers. When citizens want their work done we will have to tell them that the City of Atlanta Government has made it impossible for' us to perform such work, we will send them a copy of your ordinance and advise them to take "their case to the source oe the oppressive legislation. We would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this with you and to explain the impossible situation that this presents. Very. truly ypurs, 7b, LLL, ; Jack W. Crissey, ge IWC :DS Enc. a a rs See >...

Nixon Paul Weir FROM: W. R. Wofford ge lee’ In July, 1966, in accordance with a memorandum from Mr. Landers we established a policy of holding plans in the Building Department for a three~day period so that they could be reviewed by a representative of your department who would come to the Building Department each morning for that purpose. Gentlemen: Moat of you are sending a representative to the department as previously arranged. However, the three day waiting period frequently seems to pass without a representative from some departments reviewing plans on file. When this happens, we are requiring the contractor to contact your office and secure approval from you. Some of the contractors have objected to being sent to various other City departments, particularly those located in the City Halil Annex, since they claim this is an inconvenience to them, if you are not now sending a representative te the Building Department each morning to check plane on file, I wish you would do so; otherwise, I shall be compelied to issue a building permit where the plang have remained on file for a period of more than three days and the contractor requests approval. ec..Mr. R.

Jordon, Housing Code Inspector of W-5 sector, City of Atlanta, did on 6-6-69 go to a dwelling located at 1542 Pineview Ter., S.W. I inspected this dwelling, except for the terrace apt. and 3 rooms of the front apt. The occupants were away, and talked with Mr. & Mrs. B. Gober, Mrs. Sheldon and the postman for this route. When I approached the house I met Mrs. Sheldon, I asked for Mr. Gober and she directed me to their apt. After knocking on the Gober's door and being asked to come in, I entered. Mr. & Mrs. Gober then immediately started a string of complaints after I introduced myself. The complaints included the Police Dept., the Parks Dept., the Postmaster General and the Post Office in general, the State Patrol, the Traffic Engineering Dept., and others including near neighbors. After listening to these people for about 25 minutes and completing my inspection, I came to the conclusion that I had just been listening to two people that should be under a mental health program. After leaving the Gobers, I went to the front of the house to talk with Mrs. Sheldon and inspect the front apt. Mrs. Sheldon let me into her bedroom which was clean and tidy, except for a small area of plaster that had been loosened by rain water. This room was satisfactory. She explained that she would rather not show me the rest of the apt. until Mrs. McCutcheon, the owner, returned. Mrs. Sheldon informed me that Mr. Gover had been using abusive and threatening language laced with profanity at almost every chance. She had revealed this also to Mr. Joe Lame of the Parks Dept., and Mr. George Timbert of the Traffic Engineering Dept. While talking with Mrs. Sheldon the postman of this route came by and offered additional information. It seems that Mr. Gober wanted his mail put in a box he had mounted on the head of the stairs to this apt. (This the Department forbids). So he went down te the post office and cursed out everyone he could find down there and getting no satisfaction wrote to the Postmaster General and the President. These statements increased my belief that here were two mental cases. This dwelling hae been recently painted inside and out and a 100 amp. electric gervice installed, will refer to electrical division for check, 4 The above is a true account of my findings at 1542 Pineview Terrace on 6-6-69, Otis FP.
