For many Americans the lack of opportunity has been an awesome reality. Economic deve lopment of our depressed areas and natural resources is important; development of our people is mandatory. Thiokol has grown in depth of knowledge and experience through early commitment of our total Corporate resources to America's socioeconomic struggle. Through an innovative social engineering system, Thiokol helps convert the unemployed to motivated taxpayers with a future. Our nation's growth will be greater tomorrow by creating employment today. sk·1 s ra·nino, Ed calion,a d ea e . _____ eI Program experience demonstrates Thiokol's unique capabilities Thiokol training programs are, for the most part, job placement-oriented. In some instances, such as the tenant management training program in Gulfport, Mississippi, jobs are not the end result. But regardless of the objective , all Thiokol training is based on the following principles: 1. Every trainee has individual capabilities and learning rates. 2. Each training program has unique objectives, trainee population , and organization structure. 3. Each training program is a complete system since it is an assembly of people and materials unified to meet a common goal. Programs, designed and conducted by application of syste ms anal ys is, provide individ ual ized instructi o n leading to specific objecti ves and invol vin g all components of the EDO training concept.

Courses currently being conducted in the various programs include read ing, mathematics, communication skills, personal development, high school equivalency (GED), and driver education vocational Training Training and Education The Components Thiokol vocational training prepares trainees for entry level positi ons within a cluster of job skills. Specific courses offered in each of Thiokol 's1 many programs are based on the projected manpower needs in those fields for the following ten years. Specific job positions provide the basis for organization and operation of the vocational training course. As a contingency, "step-off" achievement levels are built into each course to facilitate placement of trai nees who do not com plete the program. Individualized courses currently being offered in the various company programs include electronics assembly, weld ing , surveying, hospital services, clerical , baking, meatcutting, cooking, farm equipment operation, sheet metal processing, refrigeration, air conditioning , plastics patternmaking, plastics molding, plastics reinforcement, machine shop operation, and automotive services. • counseling and social Skills Counseling and social ski ll s developme nt are vital compone nts of Th iokol training .

Many others have gone back to high school or col lege; or have entered the armed services, for which they had not been educati o n ally qua lif ied be f ore train ing . Thiokol is placing more t han 250 men and women in productive jobs each month throug h its prog ram graduations and the operation of its job placement ce nters. Curric ula and objecti ves of each Thioko l v ocational tra ining program have been prepared to conform to the job descripti o ns found in th e Department o f Labor Dictionary of Occupational Titles.

The Operation was established April 1, 1966. Cu rrent trainee e nrol lment at Clearfield is 1,350, 200 of whom are designated as stu dents of t he Advanced Corpsman Institute for Para-Professi onal Train ing. Academic, basic educatio n, classes are geared to the vocati onal t rain ing e ntry level of each indi vidual and include read ing , mathematics, personal developme nt, language arts, and drive r ed ucation.

Avocational activities are co nd ucted d uring w ee kdays afte r classwork and on weekends and holidays. The average corpsman is enroll ed at the Ce nter for a peri od of eight to ten months. While the re, he earns $30 a month. The federal government sets aside an additional $50 a month to provi de the corpsman an adj ustment allowance betwee n the time he completes his train ing and until he earn s hi s first regu lar paycheck. More than 2,500 former unem ployables have completed the program and have taken jobs, gone back to high school, or gone into the armed forces. Many also have gone on to coll ege enrollment.

Advanced corpsman 1nsmu1e for Para-Professional Training A need tor well-trained para-professional recreation, teaching, and counsel ing assistants became evident early in the Clearfield Job Corps Program. This need, fo und to exist also throughout the ed ucation industry, led directly to establ ishm e nt of the Clearfield Advanced Corpsman Institute tor ParaProfessional Training. Teaching Technique Th ioko l's systems analysis techn ique couples social ski ll s developme nt with job-related skills train ing. Trainees are c hallenged to develop their potential by systematically looking inward, assessing their aspirations and goals, and experime nting with new behaviors. Simul ated interpersonal confronta6 tions typical of real-life situations force the trainees to react. These reactions then are reviewed for their effectiveness in coping with the situation . New reactions and patterns of behavior are ex plored and practiced . Thus , enrollees are involved in training that emphasizes creative ways of solving problems. This small, group-oriented program provides a supportive atmosphere in which both social skills exposure and theory are integrated . Such training techniques as microteaching, closed c irc uit te levision , and role playing are introduced to the Institute trainees. On-the-job exposure also offers them the oppo rtun ity to practice their newly developed ski ll s in public school c lassrooms and in other work situati ons. Awareness of se lf, concern tor others, and helping others lea rn to d eve lop their ow n potential are all f oca l points of th e training . Placement Several hundred corpsmen have completed the para-professional train ing at the Clearfi e ld Job Corps Ce nter. Approximately sixty-five percent of these young men graduated with high school diplomas or general equivalency certi ficates. Twenty perce nt of the graduates have gone on to college, while another fifteen percent complete mil itary obli gatio ns before resuming social services caree rs. Graduates from Thiokol 's Institute have been placed as counsel ing, personnel , teaching, and recreati o n aides in Job Corps, Peace Corps, VISTA programs, and in other projects and programs sponsored by the Office of Economic Opportunity. They also have accepted employment with t he Utah State Employment Commission, the Washington State Social Services Office, the New York State Board of Education, Thi okol 's GATE H ouse (Job Corps p l acement office), th e Dall as and St. Louis Em ployment Security.

This was one of the five "target" cities chosen to pilot-test the program that would provide jobs for individuals economically handicapped by inadequate education or other problems. Thiokol responded by acquiring two San Antonio businesses, Tex-Wood Cabinet Company and Empress . Brick Company, with which to establish its training-employment operation. Thiokol Texas produces kitchen cabinets and manufactures decorative ceramictile . The two operations have been relocated at a single 3-1 /2 acre plant site, where training and production efforts are proceeding.

Volunteers have been trained for service in Iran and Libya. The Thiokol training creates immediate and sustained trainee involvement, presents highly individualized instruction, gives the trainee the responsibility for his own learning , and provides him with an underlying methodology that serves to help relate and interrelate all aspects of training . Language training is based on an audi o-lingu al technique that also includes ro le playing , sit uational exe rcises, an d cultural simulation . Many of t he geographi cal reg io n and crosscultural studies also co nsist of role Thiokol 6UIIPOrl Tenant Management Irainino playing and situational exercises. In addition , the studies include group discussions or problem solving activitives involving the role, requirements, expectations, and problems of the Peace Corps volunteer in his job, his assigned country , and community . Training takes place in small group settings where learning is creative and participative. Interaction, self-analyses, evaluation of experiences, and problem solving behaviors of the group all stress the importance of each member's role as a resource . Each member compares his reaction to various experiences with the reactions of others of the group . He also gauges his understanding of material and concepts, ideas, and opinions with those of the other members.

C TY OF A TLA TA DEPARTMENT of PARKS Office of General Manager Atlanta, Georgia 30303 October 30, 1967 JACK C, DELIUS GENERAL MANAGER Mr. Collier B. Gladin, Director Department of Planning City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia SUBJECT: Neighborhood Study for Northwest - Browntown Area Dear Collier: My staff and I have read with interest the preliminary study of community problems in the Northwest-Browntown Area of Atlanta. Havinq been asked to comment on the contents of this report, our observations regarding the problems, needs, and recommendations included in the report are set forth in this lette r. To beqin with, we would like to comment on the several references to Gun Club Park. Early in the report it is stated that Perry Home s has virtually no City recreati onal facilities and programs and v e ry limited access to those in other areas (Page 5). While the large Gun Club Park will serve a s a community park for the entirn study area, it was acq uire d primar ily to serve the r esidents of Pe1:ry Ho mes and i s located i mme d iately adj acent t o the Perry Homes Pr oject. Further, t he report make s several references t o Gun CJ. uh Park o e ing a n · inao.equ a t e and poorly d e v eloped park (l?a9es § , 6 ,10 & 11). T'h,~ report st:a 't;es t h at what h a s been bui;l..t: shews little a ppreci a tion for the p refer e nces o f the loca l re side nt s, t h a t plans s h ould b e d rawn up in s uch a ma nne r that the l ocal resident s can hav e a v o ice in sel e c ti n g the t y p es of f a cilities to be erect ed in the park (Pages 6 & 12) . Befo re c o nstruction began on any of the development of this par k , a master plan, which incl uded nearly every facility y ou would fi nd in a community p ark as wel l as a recreat i on building and s wimming pool , was completed. The rr.c1ster plan for Gu n Club was d i scu ssed o n two occasio ns with Perry Homes citizens and o ther area residents. (This is the procedure! followed prio r to development of any new park. ) The Perry Homes citizens asked for and endorse d tennis courts. The park will (Cont'd) ..,, no) ' I •I• V ,-;;r.:R01 1 1rl)f'•Y , I x 1 no 1 • 11,• y �... ,·, Mr. Gladin October 30, 1967 -2- include many facilities such as basketball-multi-use courts , (included in the present phase of construction now under way) which have not yet been built. For financial reasons, we must develop all new parks in stages over a period of years. In most cases, the first phase of development includes few facilities above ground that can be seen. Most of the money goes into preparation of the site, utilities, sewers, and underground storm drainage during the first phase of construction. The first phase of constrµction of Gun Club began on April 11, 1966, and was concluded in February 1967. This phase cost $83,4!56.00 and included the following items: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Clearing and grubbing Rough grading - West- area Utilities - water - sewers - lighting Drive and parking Sidewalks Two tennis courts Playgrounds Fencing and retaining walls Restrooms Storage buildings Concrete benches Landscaping - trees and shrubs Finished grading and grassing. On Auqust 4, 1967, construction began on phase two of development, estimated to cost $52,206.00, which includes the following items: A. In the South portion of the park 1. The remaining portion of the parking lot 2. The addition of landscaping 3. The multi-use court area 4. The play hill and related play area 5. The erection of playground equipment and structures B. In the North portion of the park 1. The day ~amp ing areaB and related parking 2. The grading and establishment of an athletic field with two baseball diamonds and a football field 3. Entrance drive and parking Phase two development, mile scheduled for completion in December, 1967, is running behind schedule due to technical problems but should be completed in early 1968 . This department recently received a windfall of $350,000 . 00 from the S1:ate to purchase park land and for capital improvements in exist:Lng parks. On July 26, 1967, the Aldermanic Parks Committee appro,red the allocation of $75,000.00 (the largest single allocation ' to any one park) for further development of Gun Club Park. Our original plans were to attempt to secure matching funds from the Federc1l Government and, if successful, build a major s ize swimming poo l c1nd bathhouse estimated to cost $ 150 , 000 . 00 . In the meantime, howE~v·or, a study group has been organized to prepare a park and recr ec1tion survey and plan for the entire city with projected needs ,' 11 x,~nol '"f' - - f (Co nt'd) ( xi- Ao \'"' (.ll•Y ; ( xi-Qo 1 ' ( ' l)" V �Mr. Gladin - 3'. - October 30, 1967 according to population trends, etc. through 1985. This comprehensive study is a joint effort of the Community Council, E.O.A., the Parks and Recreation Department, and the Planning Department. Staff personnel £rem each of these agencies are devoting considerable time to this project, which should be completed in late December, 1967. We have asked this group to study the Northwest area first and attempt to determine from the area residents their preference regarding the swimming pool or a community building. It should be emphasized that we only have $75,000.00 allocated and our regular community buildings, which do not include a gym and would not be adequate for the population, have been costing approximately $85,000.00. Feder~l assi st ance .i s not ava i lable for thG construction of a recreation building as such. In order to qualify for Federal assistance, a building would have to be a complete neighborhood facil:Lty offering various services other than recreation. Further, it should be pointed out that the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation is the only Federal agency that approves grants for swimming pools; and, B.O.R. funds allocated to the State of Georgia being rather limite d, we have no assurance of Federal a~iisistance in the construction of a pool. We welcome and solicit comments from citizens• group:3 in the Northwest - Browntown area concerning their preferences. In reqard to Center Hill Park, only $20,000.00 has been allocated; and, ,:1gain, we shall attempt to secure matching Federal funds. Center Hill Park, being an older park, has no design plan. We intend to develop a master plan for this park, including the improvements you have mentioned in the report. There are references throughout the study of the lack of recreational services in the public housing projects, to the insufficient distr:lbution of recreation leadership, and to insufficient recreation leadei~ship due to poor development of recreat i on facilities in general (Pages 5,6,10,11 & 12). This Department has realized for many y ears the need for recreation leadership in public housing projects and we have never been able to secure funds to pay salaries of recreation leaders in these projects. However, during the summers of 1966 and 1967 we were able to provide recrea t ion l ea d ershi p through our contract with E.O.A . in Perry Homes, Bowen Homes, and Gun Club P ark. We have provided recre ation leadershi p at Scott School for appr o ximately th irty years. On a number of occasions, we have ch ecko d out other schools in the area only to find that none are des i gned for other agency use . Several years ago we attempted to p r ovide r ecreation leadership at Whitaker School only to be asked t o leav e when the p r incipal at Whitaker School objected to our staff bei n g t h ere a nd even secur ed petitions f r om area residents demand i ng we wi1:hd r a w our progr am .

We sincerely appreciate the efforts that have gone into the NorthwestBrowntown area study and suggest that copies be sent to each member of the Parks Committee as well as the Park and Recreation Study Group.

Of course, it would be • I ideal if they were involved in long-range planning so that they could anticipate problems rather than respond to them as they occur. But due primarily to limited funds, the agencies are more or less compelled to respond pragmatically to community problems. The value of this report then is that it tends to make up for the lack of long-range planning for various city services. Through its assessment of ... community needs and its recommendations, it can be of invaluable assistance to public officials by pointing out what needs to be done to meet existing problems and foreseeing future needs in the Browntown Area. RECOMMENDATIONS In order to eliminate existing deficiencies and bring about orderly growth in the N. W. Browntown Area, it is recommended: '· Schools (1) That a vertical addition to Archer High which would increase its capacity to 2000 students be placed on a bond issue by Spring, 1968. (2) That an elementary school site be included for any new housing project_s approaching 300 units or more in size. (3) That planning be started now for the construction of a new high school in the area as population increase d~mands it. ( 4) That plans be started now for the construction of a junior h i gh school on the already acqu i red site located west of James Jackson Parkway as popu lat ion incr e a s e demands it. Parks and Re cre at ion (1) That a ,. r equest f or a neighbo rhood park fo r Linco ln Homes be p l a ced on the next bond i ssue. (2) \That the City find a means of paying all of the .personne l costs needed t o maint ain recreational services in Perry Romes. I ~ , ..: �-25- ! ' (3) That plans be started for securing funds to build a community club house and fully equip Gun Club Park as a community park. (4) That plans be started for the development of a community park to the west of J _ames Jackson Parkway as population increase demands it. (5) That plans be started for the development of at least one more neighborhood park in addition to the two already proposed for the area. (6) That the Parks Department be prepared to expand and improve upon existing parks and recreational facilities as population increase demands it. Sewers (1) That· the Sandy Creek Improvements Project be :i,nitiated as soon as possible in order to bring about the major solution to most of the sewage and flooding problems in the area. (2) That until the Sandy Creek Improvements Project is initiated whatever temporary solutions are feasible be implemented to alleviate sewage conditions before large new housing projects are constructed. (3) That a plan of action be developed to identify and aid the owners those homes which are too poorly situated near Proctor Creek for anything economically feasible to be done about their sewage and flooding problems. of Other Facilities (1) That a public transportation study be made to specify problems faced by residents in terms of access to library, health, and employment facilities and to recommend feasible alternatives for resolving the situation. (2) That the City make a conce ntrated effort to upgrade street and tr·a ff ic facilities in the area, including the ere ction of traf f ic facilities at needed inte rsections, the construction of street lights in unlighted residential areas, and the general maintenance of clean and well paved .streets. (3) That efforts b e made to attract to nearby industrial area s firms that · would genera t e employme nt opportunities fo r local residents. (4) That t he Cit y requ i r e that deve lope rs of any publ ic housing p r oj ect s i n in the area hire local residents first in recruiting workers • . General (1) That l ocal community groups es t abl ish t he nec essary organizational machinery to direct t heir complaints and requests to the appropriate public agencies and to fo llow through and s_ee that their complaints and requests are acted upon. -· �-26(2) That the public service agencies act upon complaints and requests from local community groups and give the groups a ~lear explanation if they are unable to meet a requested service. (3) That every effort be made to develop a healthier mixture of low and middle income housing types throughout the City so that public housing d does not become further overconcentrated in the Northwest Browntown. �t• .. ,· ..... MEMO Tom Shuttleworth ro: From: Peter Labrie and Tom Bane Subject: Rezoning of Northwest Bankhead site for 540 units of public housing We have examined various factors and issues concerning the rezon~~i of the Northwest Bankhead site for 540 units of 'turnkey' public housi~ 6 and have · come up with Che following findings and recom.nendations. Community Facilities and Services Needed According co our information on the NW area construction of the 540 units at the Bankhead site would probably generate the following needs in community facilities and services: ? (1) One (1) elementary school (2) One (1) neighborhood park (3) Public tran$portation improvements provi9ing efficient access to a library, connnunity park and shopping centers J (4) Book mobile to provide library service within the area (5) An increase in urgency to resolve high school problems of t he area. Construction of the public housing project would brin~ additional high school students into the area. This would probably increase the overcrowding at Archer or Fulton High Schools, but still not justify the construction of a new hi£h ? school, thereby further aggravating a deteriorating high scho~l situation. �- .. . ' -. . ·-- ' .. ' Prob l ems in Provision of Needed Facilities .1. nd Se rvic es One can also expect certain problems to be encountered in Qecting ? the needs listed above. 7 (1) These problems would probably include: Competition between the Il,:ml~l~ead an_d Browntown public housing sites for elementary school funds. as the following: next bond issue? 7 X both projects? (2) This brings up such que s t ions Is it too late to place the schools on t he Would there be enough funds for schools for If not, which project would come first? Reinforcement of already prevailing attitude among N'~ residents that their area is becoming a 'dumping ground' for public housing. More over, rezoning of the Bankhead site would undoubtedly make residents less prone to accept rezoning of the Browntown site. (3) Considerable difficulty in making necessary public transportatio.1 improvements. From the residents' point of view, efficieat bus service would be a dire need, but from the point of view of the bus line, which is privately owned, there would not be enough people in the project to make the improvements profita~le. Ad dition al Considerations In addition to the above problems there are some other highly si &nif- icant consideration which must be taken into account. (1) Construction of the Bankhead project would in fact contribut e to the current trend of an overconcentration of public hous ing in the NW area. This in turn would aggravate the develo? in.; social problems in the area, especially the feelings among the residents of social isolation and hostility toward city hall about �.... . . .... ...... -· , ' ... l'agc 3 being 'dumped ' into public housing pro j ects . in t he out!.ki rts ? of the city. · l' In fa~t, it may very well be that the benefits of erecting additional public housing projects in the N.,,/ will be outstripped by the costs of increased soc~al problems. (2) ~ t, I .> ,\i ·,V D ,\ {,' f~ ~f There is a lack of information on development plans for t he area surrounding the Bankhead site. Such factors as compa ta- J ' bility of nearby ind us tries, potentiality of an employment base , . 'J ' . vi,_~, possibility of a mixture in types of housing, etc. should be \~u..f' ~}' ,v. . . carefully examined before ~ decision is - made on rezoning t he ~.,. y· /'v site. Recommendation In light of the above findings it i~ our recorranendation that the Bankhead site not be considered for rezonin~ for publi~ housing until t he f ol~?wing conditions are met: (1) The stu dy on public housing is released which shows that e very effort is being made to distribute public housing throughout the city. (2) Preliminary provisions are made for meeting community faciliti.:~s and service needs: schools, parks, public transportation s e=vice, ' etc. 1,). . .1 ~G'I J~ vrl" . ~ui (3) More information exists on the potential and probable devclo? - ($ . ment of areas surrounding t he site.

Cl:.ayton R, Yates, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. J. A. Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. W.W. Gates, Consultant Also present were invited guests, including: w. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, Chamber o!' Commerce, Housing and Redevelopment Committee Mr, Len E. Sweat Jr,, Director of Governmental Liaison Mr. Ge'orge Planning Director, Collier Gladin, presided. Mr, Gladin stated that he and the members of his sta!f were very happy to have an opportunity to meet with the Housing Resources Committee and discuss mutual problem~, He stated that every effort.would be made in the future to work with the Housing Resources Committee. Mr. Gladin briefly explained the progress being made by his Department in produeing a new Land.Use map. He presented a map showing progress to date, but . explained that many changes would necessarily have to be made before the map is completed and approved by other city officials. Mr. Gladin also stated that coll8id~ration should be given to higher densities for low-income housing, including use of high rise. Mr, Pierce Mahoney of the Planning Department explained the proposed Land.Use map in detail and also exhibited a second map indieating projections to 1983. He stated that the locations of the proposed rapid transit •ystem stations have not been determined ·and this eould be one item that would involve possible changes, �- - - - - - --- 2 City Planner, J. C. Johnson distributed a list of possible sites for lowincome housing prepared by the Planning Department on October 23, 1967. He stated that in his opinion a package of 10 to 15 possible low-income housing sites distributed throughout the City should be submitted at one time for zoning consideration, rather than individual requests for each property. He stated that the package approach would hopefully aid in surmounting neighborhood and Feceral objections such as have been encountered in connection with individual parcel zoning. He explained that !fayor Iva., Allen's goal of 16,800 low-cost units in five years has been slo,re ·:. by obj e ctions of residents and the Federal government, high land costs and difficulty i n getting zo:ling changes. Johnson s ~id most of t he sites the plannsrs are considering aren't zoned for apartment units. Residents on nu.~erous occasions have appeared before the Aldermanic Zoning Committee to beat back requests for zoning changes that would permit low-cost housing in their neighborhoods. Mr. Johnson s2id that he hoped the Housing Resources Committee, the Citizens Advisory Committee on Urban Renewal, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Housing Committee or some similar group would pursue the package idea, develope it and sutmit it to the proper zoning authorities. He stat ed that the list distributed was incomplete and that probably a number of additional areas could be added. Mr. Johnson submitted a proposed development plan, using the old Ball Park s ite on Pence de Leon Avenue as an illustrat i on of how a site might be developed f or mixed uses including high rise apartments, shopping areas, etc. Mr . Gates , HRC Co:;,.rnittee Consult ant, provided :member s of the Pl anning Department with a list of 22 Proposed Sites, dated October 10, 1967, which owners or those having control, have voluntarily listed with the HRC for sale for use i n t he low-income Housing Program. Only 4 of these sites are zoned A-1 however. Mr. Cecil Alexander, Chairman of the Housing Resources Committee stated that there appears to be an excess of l and in the City presently zoned f or industrial use and suggest ed that study be given to det ermine if some of t his land should be released fo~ use as apartment sites. Mr. Alexander also stressed the urgent need for an overall Land-Use plan nhich would make additional apartment sites available. �\I 3 The meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m. Respectfully submitted, < ,-, . \ . .' ...;~.'-j~__/ ..jl!--~·-2 -Malcolm D.

Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and then cailed on Nr. Jones to present the current status report of the program. Mr. Jones stated. that his office was in the process of retyping the low.. income housing inventory report but had only the summary ready for this meeting (Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented to Executive Group members) . He explained that included in the inventory are apartment units bei~ developed under conventional financing which do not cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a du~lex and $1S,OOO for a single family house. He explained that the last page of the summary contains notes, ro me of which are especially significant •. He explained that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on August Jl, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on the whole we have lost ground in this program since the previous report two months ago. �2 He then called attention to the extract from the CIP report pertaining to low-income housing requirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder). He also pointed out that we are not rec1.lly building low-cost housins in public housing but low-income housing . He also explained Item 4(a) on the agenda and the corresponclin:; document in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertainj_ng to availahle land sui tabl)r zoned for the low-income housing program. At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones' office was understaffed to hancUe the statistical data required by the CIP and proposed that from here on out when someone GOes to the Building Department for a pennit we should try to r-;et the Per1rdt Desk to list what the rent on the units will be and number of bedrooms per unit; thc>.t there is no way we can require this legally; and that another thing that we need to clo is to <1lso go back to the developers now in the program and get more specific information on their plans. He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee for not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures bein5 built are reasonably r,ood and that his feelin: :s are that a great deal more interes t should be put in the lowest rental-purchase ranges ; that we can get more in that price range from the prefabricated housing; th2.t the carrying charges on these per month is important and we should find out what it is; that to meet the really tough part of the program misa.as going to the City for additional help. He also asked for comments f rom members of the Committee. Mr. Clark said he would sup::_Jort askin.:; f or more help; that he also saw a news report for housinr, that would rent for 1~50 to fi>70 per month, under the Farmers Association program; that it is in DeKalb County, and is called City Line. Mr. Alexander stated that is a good start to ~et low.cost housing in the counties. Another member stated that the Farmers Association pro,~ram is also a part of the FHA program. Mr. Palmer inquired as to the definition of low-cost housing? Mr . Jones replied that it is essentially a matter of interpretation, Mr. Alexander stated that is was from $0 to ~55 per month, Mr. Palmer commented 11 And they want low-income housine built under private enterprise?" Mr. Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey development. Mr. Jones added "And even Rent Supplement11 • �3 Mr. Alexander again proposed askin~ the City f or a Clerk and developing a form for the Building Department to get filled out at the t ime permits are obtained and. c tated that we will have to talk to Mr. Hoff ord about that. A motion was made that the matter be left in seconded it. The matter was drop'.:Jed there. M r. Jones' hands, ¥ir. Yates Mr. Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zon.i.ng matters is not an open ru1d shut case as to how to make 1~ecormnendations to the Boo.rd of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as a extracurricular roll to a ;,sist the developers in this progr am; t hat this has been done in several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to eo around lookin£s at these sites to r e commend those which we consider r easonable, Mr. -Jones explained thnt this is what he and Mr. Gates have been attem0tint; to do; that they have been out with the s-,Jonsors and actually looked at most of the aites and have only listed ancl encouraa;ed thos e which they felt were pr actical and desirable, t hat in a several instances they have di scoura~ed sponsors fr om submittinc: s ites which they f elt were i mpracticable or unsuitable . Hr. Alexander continued that his f eel inc i s that we should t ry t o aid and assist the builders in this progr am but that we have no power to chan;:;e what is going on and that we are hnvin s our pro_)osals turned down one by one f or various reasons. He stated that t he approach which he f elt we should truce i s to i ssue a gener al s tatement about t he housing progr am, i t s needs, and t he shorta~e of l and that is now suitabl y zoned and t o work toward gettin:s a rezoning of the entire City , with due consi derat ion f or low-income housing needs; t hat as for working wit h the developer s we should be governed by what we see i s a ccept able to the Board of Alder men and the Building De~artment i n· granting permits; and f ur ther to come to some conclusi on about t he probl ems. He s t at ed t hat we shoul d also hel p the developers arr ange meetings with the Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone 1>1ho 1-1ants t o talk to t hem about deficiencies in Communit y Facil ities r el ated t o t he housing program, which in some instances have been l oeimatc , such as parks, transportation, traffic, schools etc . He further stated. that at t he same time the ur,'sency of this program has seemed to es cape s ome ?eopl e; that one thi ng whi ch we also need is to emphasize the requirement f or additional l ow-income housing in the neighboring cities and countios and make it clear tha.t we are not trying to create a haven here in Atlanta for the whole country to come to and move in on this program; that this may happen, but we should t ry t o avail' it. He st ated that the CIP requirement is for replacement of houses and apartments that are unfit for human habitation • . He then called upon Mr . Jones for comments . Mr. Jones stated he feels tha t it wo do not take a position to actively sup:iort the cJ.evelopers who have proposed good projects and which ap~ear~ reasonable, he di d not know who would; that he was personally inclined to feel that we can do a service if we asa Committee take a -·JOsition on such proj ects; that he docs not think however that many ar ens will be built in the City which already have a surplus of cormnunity facilities; that he has hopec:_ that we can supµly facilities such as parks, nchools, pl aygrounds etc. simultaneous with the development of the housing proj e cts, by r elying on other Agencies and other Department s; �4 that those details should be chocked into carefully and coorc;ination made to provide these services as adequately as we ca1~. He said that he felt personally that a statement from the Housing rtesources Committee on each of the projects proposed f or low-income housing would be helpful to the Planning Boa;.~d and. the Zoning Committee when they make their decisions. He pointed out difficulties which we have had in gettine sites approved up to that point and e:;~)lained that he and Hr. Gates (the Committee Consultant) have attempted to look at each proposed site but have been unable to follow through on aJJ. details such as checking on the adequacy of community facilities etc.; that in several instances he and Hr. Gates have discourn:~ed sponsors for this reason or that; such as ground too rough, facilities not available etc. and that as a result, sever al of the sites originally proposed have nevP.r come up for rezonin~. He further stated tha,t he was inclined to feel that on those pronosals for Turnkey development that it would even be 1-roll for the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee -to know whether or not the Housing Authority considered the sites as favorable ~.nd suitable. One member commented that perhaps the whole City needs to be rezoned. Mr. Alexander replied it seemed to him that we must create additional land through purchases for the ci ty-·wide a pproach; that when the individual developer canes along, there should be a body looking to tho interest of the whole city and it ap;:>eared to him that these things have thus far been considered only by the Board of Aldermen; that he wonders whether this is doing the program the best service? He stated that consulting with the Planning Board is also very 1~uch in order, presumably. In referring to Item 4(a) on the agenda and the corresponding marked docU17lcnt in the fol der, Dr. Henderson inquired if this material is whc>.t his Committee had asked for? Mr. Jones s t at ed that this is l1hat the Planning Department pr ovided in r e:Jponse to his a zoning ma:9 of nnd a report of by Land Lot and p.'.lilel's request; thnt when ue got it, it crone in t wo f orms: the City with va cant land areas superimposed on it in orange; total land in tho various zoning cat aeories and vacant land Dis trict. Mr. Jones furth0r explained that the Planning fupartment is now making a co~prehensive Land-Use s tudy to go before the Board of Aldermen with s ome proposed chti.Il~es in the overall land-use of the City; that he felt the bes t thi n3 this Committee could do now is to cct its r e commendations presented to tho Planning and Development Committee; that we have a Joint Meeting scheduled for the 29th of Sept ember . Mr. Alexander then told Dr. Henderson that he s hould meet with Mr. Jones to go over the mat erial provided by the Planning Department, but that i n trying to resolve this thing we are s till short on l and and thos e two should cane up with a proposal , say in Sept ember, as to the number of a cres needed and its dis tribution. Dr . Henderson asked approximately how many a cres does tha t involve? �5 Mr . Jones replied that the maximum 0.ensity authorized f or garden type .::partments is 16 units per acre, but that the Housing Authority has been trying to hold that down to about 12 units per acre. Mr. Pcrsells stated that was correct; that 3, h, Qlld 5 bedroom units, which t he Housing Authority particularly ne eds, results in reduction of the density below 16 units per a cre. Mr. Jones explained we had one project which has been approved by FHA at 16 units per acre , but it is in an Urban Renewal project; that we had a developer recently dro~ a project becnusc he had bought the land expecting to develope it at the ma.xir.um authorized density of 16 units per acre and that in preliminary clis cussions, F"rlA suggested 10 uni ts per acre. Mr. Alexander stated that it is open to deb~te about how many total acres would be required.; that our exp8rience to date indicates that no more than 1/3 of the land appropriately zoned actually gets into the low-income housing program, due to turndovms by HUD, FHA, nei ghborhoods etc.; that to date only about 1/3 of the land zoned has found its way into this program. Mr. Alexander stated that there ap:1ears to be a need to r ezone the City at large; that there wer e 51 zoning petitions on the agenda recently for one r-.co ·::ing of the Planning Board. Mr . Jones expl ained that the current z oning was especially planned f or }ndus1;,ry; that many areas were original ly planned but never used as industrial, 1-;:C.- .ich development will not occur in the f orsecable futur e , and that the same c_pplies to much of the land now zoned residential ( singl e family development) t-:hereas tho immediate need of the City now i s for low-income multi-family housing. Mr. Persells e.xpl ained that the Housing Authority has gone back over the l anu to cons:i.der addit i onal parcels 1vhich could be used f or the low-income housing c~tegoriJ where chrin gcs seem to be reasonabl e . Mr. Alexander stat ed the builders have claimed that FHA procadurea were hol d.inc them up , that Atlanta is one of the City's in which FHA now clcims that it can process an application in l ess than 2 weeks; that this i s a change in nttitude , but the 221 d ( 3) proeram does not come within the direct line of FHA 1 s principal insuring policy. Mr . Alexa,~der asked Mr . Clark if the report prepared by Mr. Gat es on the accelerated procedure for multi-family processing by F1IA could be carried to the press (Item 6 on the agenda, with co-::iics in the folders ) Mr . Clark indicated that it would probably be better for this tY}Je of announcement to be made by the local FHA office rather than f r om this Committee. �6 Mr. Alexander then referred to Item 7 on the agenda pertaining to the proposal in the Rent Supplement program to require nonprofit sponsors to put up 5% equity (in effect a donation); that the reason the attempt to put this thine; in, is the theory that if nonprofit sponsors 2.re financially imo lved in the success of their project that they will have more permanent interest in it; that Urban AmGrica's feeling is, if this is done the Rent Supplement program will die before it gets nn opportunity to grow; and Urban America has suGgested that those interested send telegrams to their Senators and to Senator Warren Magnuson sugGesting th2.t this approach of requiring the 5% equity will defeat the purpose of the program; that what he would like to do is to eet an authorization from the Committee to sign a t 8l egram in support of this position and to urge cons ideration of this matter in the final preparation of the bill. A motion was made by Mr. Palmer, seconded and unanimously adopt ed asking Mr. Alexander to send. such telegrams to .:i.ppropriate Senators, Mr. Cl.:i.rk asked if the 5%o.onation Mr. Alexander stated that it i s nonprofit, s1Jonsor is not sup;iosed to 2.nd it is asking too much of him to Mr . Alexanuer also said that to give nonprofit projects one can borrow up is what you are competing with, in a is a known step or a new development. new; that the thinking is that the be get tin~ any profit back from the project put up 5%equity donation to the project. tho other sid0. of it is, that in 221 d (3) to a 102% of the project coat and this sense. Mr. Pers ells asked Mr. Alexander to explain the l02_;i . Mr. Alexander explained what the extra 2% takes care of. Mr. Alexander again asked for and received unanimous consent to r equest the City for a GI.erk for at least 3 months. Mr. Alexander then called for hrief reports from the Panel Chairmen. Legal Panel - Mr . Archer Smith made a very interes ting presentation of his case study and the significance of the She.ffer vs. City of Atlanta Housing Code Case, which he announced was coming up for hearing the next day. Constructi on and Design Panel - As no one was present to represent this panel, Mr. Alexander explained a proj e ct which that panel was working on involving Building Codes and a System s tudy. Finance and Nonprofit Funds Panel - Mr. Alexander explained that this panel is working on creation of a Honpr ofit Housing Development Corporntion, He also mentioned the favorable comment s made at the Urban America Seminar by a local banker pertaining to loans made through his bank to sponsors of nonprofit projects. �7 Business Participation Panel - Hr. Alexander cormnented briefly on his rec ent conference in Washington with Se.cretary Weaver and FHA Administrator, Braim.stein, pertaining to bringing "Big Business 11 into the low-income housing field. Public Information Panel - Mr •. Clark commented on the ill-fated Browntmm Road rezoning at tempt and to a nonprof it sponsor proj ect which is being promoted locally by the Interfaith Group of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Social Problems Panel - Daan Jackson explained that the avera::,;e annual income for Negroes in Atlanta is $3600 and that the number one question is the adequacy of the number of bedrooms in rent8l units . Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. David T. Edwar ds, sponsor of a rezoning petition f or an 18 acre site on the \I.Jest side of Atlanta , i'Jorth of Bakers Ferry Roacl , S. W. (LL 2h, 14th Dist. FF) to present his proposal ( one of three in Item 5 on the· agenda )~ Ytr. Edwards made a good and convincing presentation. From questions a ske d mid comments J11ade by some members of the Committee , the Cornmi ttee ai)poared receptive to Mr. Edwards I propos8l. Formal action by the Committee however was not called for by the Chairman to endorse this proj ect to the Zoning Committe e , as had previous ly been re ques ted by Mr. Edwards, as well a s similar requests from sponsors of t wo other projects which the Committe e had previously endorsed to the Planning Board.

It is not a comp rehensive p l an , bu t ·' moreso an assessment of the existing a nd f uture communit y need s brought ab out by the problems which the area is facing at t his par ticular point in it s development. It is hoped that the repo r t and 'its recommenda tions will g ive both residents and city officials a better sens e of direction in dealing with · the growth problems of the area. - ---·· BOUNDARIES -·· - The area referred to in this repo r t as t he Nor thwest Brmmto~m St udy Area is bounded by Perry Boulevar d on the north; the Louisville and Nashville Railway on the west; Bankhead Highway on the sout h; and Bolton and Nash Roads on the east. Included within these boundaries are t he Anti-Povert y Ta r get Areas H and I , and the residential commun ities of Carve r Hil ls , Ho l lywood Hi ll s , Lincoln Homes, Bolton Homes, Perry Homes, Scot t s Cros s ing , and Bowen Homes . HISTORY The Northwe st Browntown Area is part of the a rea wh i ch wa s annexed t o .... the City in 1952. At t he time of annexat ion i t was one of the rel a ively - ~ -~- . ·..--_ - ---· - undeveloped f ringe areas existing out side the City limi t s a nd cons isting primarily of s mall semi-rural communities . Howeve r, not long afte r a nnexa t ion residential growth i n t he area pro ceeded v ery rap i dly. Perry Home s, a l arge public housing pro jec t o f 1 , 000 unit s , was opened i n 19 55. Then other r e side ntial projects, l ar~cly in t he middle to low- i ncome range , f ollowed. Today t he are.:i cont ains ab out 17 , 00Q peop le and 4,425 housing units, of which 1 , 650 a re pub l i c and 2, 775 are p r ivate • ..,. -.· 1 �-2The re side nt ial growth ~~1i ch has occur r ed during the past 15 years i n Nort l:n;1cct Brow ntown h.:i..s generally been unplanned . Res identia l s ubdivisions have be en cons tructed without concommitant commun i t y fa cilities. The deve lo p- ment and improvement of schools, pa rks, and s ewer s have lagg ed behind r e s idential growth. The result is that today, despite t he built -up residential concentrations, the area still retains many characteristics of an undeveloped rural a r e a. One finds, for example, relatively dense concentrations of public hou sing units amidst large stretches of heavily wooded areas with unpaved roads and rough ·terrain. Most community facilities are eithe r opera ting av~r c a pacity or are still not sufficiently developed t o mee t populat i on needs. Even worse, residential growth occur ring in the are a is by no mcu ns s l owing down. Several new major housing projects and a ddi tions to exi st i ng housing totaling about 3,250 units are be ing consid e red for const r uc t io n . CIP estimates indic ate that the popula t i on of t he a r e a will doubl e i n abo ut 10 years and reach a total of about 40,000 peop l e by 1983. The dilemma facing Northwest Browntown is h?W to up - g r ade and i mprove a l ready deficient community facili ties i n l i ght of co nt inuing reside nti a l g rowth. Residents i n the area have b egun t o fa ce up to this d ilemma by organizing against f urther housing const ruction, p a rticularly public housing, unt i l more attention i s g iven by the Cit y t o scho ols, sewe rs , parks and at e r corr.rnunit y fac i lit ies and services. THE BROWNTOWN ZO NING I SSUE The most r ecent and impo r tant ef f o rt by res i dents t o p revent further publ ic hous i ng co nstru ct ion concerned the Brownt own. Zoning Issue. This ef f o rt stemmed from an app l i c at ion filed on June 29, 1967 t o change the zoning of a portion of property covering ab out 50 a cres and located north �of Brownto'Wll Road and west of Jar:1cs J.:i.ckson rarkuay. ~The application requested that the proper ty be changed from ~-1 (Light-Industr ial) to A- 1 (Apartments). The purpose of this rezoning was t o allow tL.C constru ct ion of 510 low-cost housing units under the turnkey program for public housing . Under this program the housing units would be developed privately o.nd then purchased by the Housing Author ity. A hearing on the zoning change was held .ugust 10 , 19 6 7, by the Zoning Committee of the Board o f Aldermen . At t hat ti~e they recomrr.ended adversely on the request for a change in zoning ue to comp laints by residents of the Browntown Area on grounds that curren school) park and s ewer facilities in the area are already inadequate and would be further over- burdened by the new development . Since no comprehens ive study had ever been made of Browntown's community p roblems , this study was initiated to help clarify and .assess those issues affecting it s f u ture deve lopment so that both residents nnd city officials might have a more effect ive framework f or dealing with its problens . APPROACH AND METHOD OF STUDY As c an be surmised from the above background information, this repor is merely a first st ep in provi ding orderly development of the Northwest :::- ~,: :,town Area. The approach is to focus on comrr~nity facilities and the attend u. communit y problems and needs arising from their utilizat ion. In surveying community needs the report d istinguishes both existing and future needs. Existing needs ref er to those it ems needing i mmediate atte ntion; while future needs refer to those estimated to develop in about 5-10 years , when the population is expected t o be about double its present size. �- -- I I - 4The approach taken for t hi s study cons i st ~d of t he f0llowi ng st ep s: 1. l identific ;:i.y ion of major cor.miun it y p r oblems b y City pl :rnnc r :; in ( conjunction with the s pec ial Pl ann ing Commi tt ee of 1 I - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - ~ ~ - - - he N.

Thus no attempt is made to analyze all the various r amific ations of these problems or to specify the existing and future community needs which they might generate. Instead attention was focused on only the most obvious and general needs in these areas. The Needs Include: (1) More Effective Communication Links Between Local Community Groups and Ci ty Services An investigation into several traffic and transportation problems r evealed the ne ed for stroneer co-.:cmunication links between local community groups a nd the various City agencies furnishing community services. For ex ample, note the following two cases: Lack of Traf fic Si gn.?.l at .Jacks on Parkway and Browntown Ro ad According to :the Traffic Engine e ring Depar tment a study wa s made of this i nt erse ction 5 or 6 years ago which revealed that no traf fic light wa s needed at the time. No complaint s had been received about the i nte rsec tion then, so the depart me nt had no way of knowing it was a troub l e s pot. However, upon request of the Planning Dep a rtment the Tr a ff ic Enginee r i ng Department will make a no t her s~udy of traffic condit ions at t he intersection, after which it can de termine what type of t raff ic f acility can best handle the contlitions. Poor Care of St r eets The Sanit at i on Div i sion of t he Co ns truc tion Department confirmed that it handle s the clear ing of rubbish fr om t he s treet, but that the trimming of gras s border i ng t he street s is a r e spons i b i l ity of the property owners. It fur the r s tat ed tha t it had a s hor t ag e of wo r kers to clean the streets s o that its men a re s pread thin Qv er t he City. However, if any community f e lt it had been neglected and wanted ·cleaning services f or its streets , the community should make a request to the Sanitation Div i sion and the request wi ll be acted upon. More Effe ctive Communicat i on Links \ The ~ain fact or unde rly ing bo t h of t he above traf f i c and Gt.~oet c8re problems is the need f or mo re effective communication links between l ocal �-16community groups and the City services. This may sound rather ·trite, but actually it has important implications for both the local groups and the City agencies. On the one hand, the local groups must establish the necessary organizational machinery to direct their complaints to the appropriate agencies · and to follow through to see that their complaints are acted upon. One the other hand, when a public agency receives a complaint or request from a community group it should act upon the, compl°aint and if unable to · do so, should give the community a clear explanation. Also, whenever possible the agencies should keep local communities informed of the various projects planned for the area. I II . I ! ii (2) - ······--···· .

Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman, Housing Resoirces Committee Mr. Archer D. Smith, representing Mr, Charles L. Weltner, Acting Chairman, _ Legal Panel Mr. Henry L. Hills, representing Mr. Lee Burge, Chairman, Finance and Non-Profit funds Panel Mr. John Wilson, member, Finance and Non-Profit Funds Panel Mr. Charles F. Palmer, representing Mr. Clarence D. Coleman, Chairman, Public Housing Panel Mr. F. C. Terrell, representing Mr, Wallace L. Lee, member, Land Acquisition Panel Dr. Vivian Henderson, Acting Chairman, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. J. A. Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. Stewart Wight, member, Land Acquisition Panel Dean William S. Jackson, Chairman, Social Problems Panel Mr. idward S, Simon, Vice-Chairman, Business Participation Panel Mr, Dale Clark, Chairman, Public Information Panel Mr. Malcolm D. Jones, Director Also present at the meeting were: Mr. William S. Holland, Executive Director, CACUR Mr. Lester A. Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and then called on Mr. Jones to present the current status report of the program, Mr. Jones stated that his office was in the process of retyping the lowe income housing inventory report but had only the summary ready for this meeting (Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented to Executive Group members). He explained that included in the inventory are apartment units being develoved under conventional financing which dco not cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a duvlex and $15,000 for a single family house. He explained that the last page of the summary contains notes, sme of which are especially significant. He explained that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on August 31, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on the whole we have lost ground in this program since the previous report two months agOs He then called attention to the extract from the CIP renort pertaining to low-income housing recuirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder). He also pointed out that we are not really building low=cost housing in public housing but low-income housing. He also explained Item (a) on the agenda and the correspondin’: document in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertaining to available land suitably zoned for the low-income housing program. At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones! office was under- staffed to handle the statistical data required by the CIP and proposed that from here on out when someone goes to the Building Vepartment for a permit we should try to set the Permit Desk to list what the rent on the units will be and number of bedrooms per unit; that there is no way we can require this legally; and that another thing that we need to do is to also go back to the developers now in the program and get more specific information on their plans, He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee for not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures being built are reasonably good and that his feelin:'s are that a great deal more interest should be put in the lowest rental-purchase ranges; that we can get more in that price range from the prefabricated housing; that the carrying charges on these per month is important and we should find out what it is; that to meet the really tough part of the program means going to the City for additional help. He also asked for comments from members of the Committee. Mr. Clark said he would support askin; for more help; that he also saw a news report for housing that wovld rent for $50 to 470 per month, uncer the farmers Association program; that it is in DeKalb County, and is called City Line, Mr. Alexander stated that is a good start to set lowecost housing in the counties. Another member stated that the Farmers Association prosram is also a part of the FHA program. Mr. Palmer inquired as to the definition of low-cost housing? Mr. Jones replied that it is essentially a matter of interpretation. Mr. Alexander stated that is was from $0 to $55 per month, Mr. Palmer commented "And they want low-income housing built under private enterprise?" Mr, Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey development. Mr, Jones added "And even Rent Supplement", Mr. Alexander again proposed askinz the Cit3- for a Clerk and developing a form for the Building Department to get filled out at the time permits are obtained anc stated that we will have to talk to Mr. Wofford about that. A motion was made that the matter be left in Mr. Jones' hands, Mr. Yates seconded it. The matter was dropved there. Mr, Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zoning matters is not an open and shut case as to how to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as a extracurricular roll to assist the develoners in this program; thet this has been cone in several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to fo around looking at these sites to recomniend those which we consider reasonable, Mr. Jones explained that this is what he and Mr. Gates have been attemoting to do; that they have been out with the s»onsors and actually looked at most of the sites and have only listed anc encourazed those which they felt were practical and desirable; that in a several instancos they have discouraced sponsors from submittins sites which they felt were impracticable or unsuitable. Mr. Alexander continued that his feeling is that we should try to aid and assist the builders in this program but that we have no power to change what is going on and that we are havinz our pro»osals turned down one by one for various reasons. He stated that the approach which he felt we should take is to issue a general statement about the housing program, its needs, and the shortagze of land that is now suitably zoned and to work toward getting a rezoning of the entire City, with due consideration for low-income housing needs; that as for working with the developers we should be governed by what we see is acceptable to the Board of Aldermen and the Building Department in granting permits; and further to come to some conclusion about the problems. He stated that we should also help the developers arrange meetings with the Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone who wants to talk to them about deficiencies in Community Facilities related to the housing program, which in some instances have been legimatc, such as parks, transportation, traffic, schools etc. He further stated that at the same time the urzency of this program has seemed to cscape some Deople; that one thing which we also need is to emphasize the requirement for additional low-income housing in the neighboring cities and countics and make it clear that we are not trying to create a haven here in Atlanta for the whole country to come to and move in on this program; that this may happen, but we should try to avoi' it. He stated that the CIP requirement is for replacement of houses and apartments that are unfit for human habitation, He then called upon Mr. Jones for comments. Mr. Jones stated he feels that it we do not take a position to actively suport the «‘evelopers who have proposed good projects anc which apnear§ reasonable, he cid not know who would; that he was personally inclined to feel that we can do a service if we as a Committee take a »osition on such projects; that he does not think however that many areas will be built in the City which already have a surdlus of community facilities; that he has hopec that we can supoly facilities such as parks, schools, playgrounds etc. simultaneous with the development of the housing projects, by relying on other Agencies and other Departmenis; that those details should be checked into carefully and coorcination made to provide these services as adequately as we cam. He said that he felt personally that a statement from the Housing resources Committee on each of the projects proposed for low-income housing would be helpful to the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee when they make their decisions. He pointed out difficulties which we have had in getting sites approved up to that point and explained that he and Mr. Gates (the Committee Consultant) have attempted to look at each proposed site but have been unable to follow through on all. details such as checking on the adequacy of community facilities etc.; that in several instances he and Mr. Gates have discoura'z;ed syonsors for this reason or that; such as ground too rough, facilities not available etc. and that as a result, several of the sites originally proposed have never come up for rezoning. He further stated that he was inclined to feel that on those proposals for Turnkey development that it would even be well for the Planning Board and the Zoning Committee to know whether or not the Housing Authority considered the sites as favorable and suitable. One member commented that perhaps the whole City needs to be rezoned. Mr. Alexander replied it seemed to him that we must create additional land through purchases for the city-wide approach; that when the individual developer comes along, there should be a body looking to the interest of the whole city and it apyeared to him that these things have thus far been considered only by the Board of Aldermen; that he wonders whether this is doing the program the best service? He stated that consulting with the Plaming Board is also very much in order, presumably. In referring to Item h(a) on the agenda and the corresponding marked document in the folder, Ur. Henderson inguired if this material is what his Committee had asked for? Mr. Jones stated that this is what the Planning Department provided in response to his panel's request; that when we got it, it came in two forms: a zoning man of the City with vacant land areas superimposed on it in orange; and a report of total land in the various zoning catagories and vacant land by Land Lot and District. Mr. Jones further explained that the Planning Department is now making a comprehensive Land-Use study to go before the Board of Aldermen with some proposed changes in the overall land-use of the City; that he felt the best thing this Committee could do now is to set its recommendations prescnted to the Planning and Development Committec; that we have a Joint Mecting scheduled for the 29th of September. Mr. Alexander then told Dr. Henderson that he should meet with Mr. Jones to go over the material provided by the Planning Department, but that in trying to resolve this thing we are still short on land and those two should come up with a proposal, say in September, as to the number of acres needed and its distribution, Dr. Henderson asked approximately how many acres does that involve? Mr. Jones replied that the maximum censity authorized for garden type apartments is 16 units per acre, but that the Housing Authority has been trying to hold that down to about 12 units per acre. Mr. Persells stated that was correct; that 3, lh, and 5 bedroom units, which the Housing Authority particularly needs, results in reduction of the density below 16 units per acre. Mr. Jones explained we had one »roject which has been approved by FHA at 16 units per acre, but it is in an Urban Renewal project; that we had a developer recently drov a project because he had bousht the land expecting to develone it at the maximum authorized density of 16 units per acre and that in preliminary discussions, FHA suggested 10 units per acre. Mr. Alexander stated that it is open to debate about how many total acres would be required; that our experience to date indicates that no more than 1/3 of the land appropriately zoned actually gets into the low-income housing program, due to turndowns by HUD, FHA, neighborhoods etc.; that to date only about 1/3 of the land zoned has found its way into this program. Mr. Alexander stated that there apvears to be a need to rezone the City at large; that there were 51 zoning petitions on the agenda recently for one rec ling of the Planning Board. Mr. Jones explained that the current zoning was especially planned for industry; that many areas were originally planned but never used as industrial, vhich development will not occur in the forsecable future, and that the same “pplies to much of the land now zoned residential (single family development) whereas the immediate need of the City now is for low-income multi-family housing, Mr. Persells explained that the Housing Authority has gone back over the land to consider additional parcels which could be used for the low-income housing category where chsngcs scem to be reasonable. * * * Mr, Alexander stated the builders have claimed that FHA procedures were holding them up; that Atlanta is one of the City's in which FHA now claims that it can process an application in less than 2 weeks; that this is a change in attitude, but the 221 d (3) program does not come within the direct line of FHA's principal insuring policy. Mr. Alexander asked Mr. Clark if the report prepared by Mr. Gates on the accelerated procedure for multi-family processing by FHA could be carried to the press (Item 6 on the agenda, with co»ies in the folders) Mr. Clark indicated that it would probably be better for this type of announcement to be made by the local FHA office rather than irom this Committee. Mr, Alexander then referred to Item 7 on the agenda pertaining to the proposal in the Rent Supplement program to require nonprofit sponsors to put up 5% equity (in effect a donation); that the reason the attempt to put this thing in, is the theory that if nonprofit sponsors are financially inw lved in the success of their project that they will have more permanent interest in it; that Urban America's feeling is, if this is done the Rent Supplement program will die before it gets an opportunity to grows; and Urban America has suggested that those interested send telegrams to their Senators and to Senator Warren Magnuson sugresting that this approach of reauiring the 5% equity will defeat the purpose of the program; that what he would like to do is to get an authorization from the Committee to sign a telegram in support of this position and to urge consideration of this matter in the final preparation of the bill, A motion was made by Mr. Palmer, seconded and¢ unanimously adopted asking Mr, Alexander to send such telegrams to appropriate Senators, Mr. Clark asked if the 5% donation is a know step or a new development. Mr. Alexander stated that it is new; that the thinking is that the nonprofit syonsor is not suposed to be gctting any profit back from the project and it is asking too much of him to put up 5% equity donation to the project. Mr. Alexander also said that to give the other side of it is, that in 221 d (3) nonprofit projects one can borrow up to a 102% of the project cost and this is what you are competing with, in a sense. Mr. Persells asked Mr. Alexander to explain the 102%. Mr. Alexander explained what the extra 2% takes care of. +t ci * Mr. Alexander again asked for and received unanimous consent to request the City for a Glerk for at least 3 months, Mr. Alexander then called for brief reports from the Pancl Chairmen. Legal Panel - Mr. Archer Smith made a very interesting presentation of his case study and the significance of the Shaffer vs. City of Atlanta Housing Code Case, which he announced was coming up for hearing the next day. Construction and Design Panel - As no one was present to represent this panel, Mr. Alexander explained a project which that panel was working on involving Building Codes and a System study. Finance and Nonprofit Funds Panel = Mr. Alexander explained that this panel is working on creation of a Nonprofit Housing Development Corporation, He also mentioned the favorable comments made at the Urban America Seminar by a local banker pertaining to loans made through his bank to sponsors of nonprofit projects. Business Participation Panel - Mr. Alexander commented briefly on his recent conference in Washington with Secretary Weaver and FHA Administrator, Brownstein, pertaining to bringing "Big Business" into the low-income housing field. Public Information Panel - Mr, Clark commented on the ill-fated Browntorn Road rezoning attempt and to a nonproiit sponsor project which is being promoted locally by the Interfaith Group of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Social Problems Panel - Dean Jackson explained that the averarze annual income for Negroes in Atlanta is $3600 and that the number one question is the adequacy of the number of bedrooms in rental units. Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. David T. Edwards, sponsor of a rezoning petition for an 18 acre site on the West side of Atlanta, North of Bakers Ferry Road, S. W. (LL 2), lth Dist. FF) to present his proposal (one of three in Item 5 on the agenda). Mr. Edwards made a good and convincing presentation. From questions asked and comments made by some members of the Committee, the Committee aopeared receptive to Mr. Edwards! proposal. Formal action by the Committee howover was not called for by the Chairman to endorse this project to the Zoning Committee, as had previously been requested by Mr, Edwards, as well as similar requests from sponsors of two other projects which the Committee had previously endorsed to the Planning Board. This was for reasons explained earlier in the mecting. Subsequently however, the Chairman of the Planning Boara was requested to pass on to the Zoning Committce, with the Planning Boards' recommendations, a letter which had previously been written by the Committee to the Planning Board endorsing those two projects. The meeting was adjorned at 12 noon, HS ethene Anasha poe Malcolm D.

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss with Mr. John Steinichen, Consultant City Planner and Committee Member of the Unitarian Universalist Congragation of Atlanta, the formation of an Atlanta area church-sponsored nonprofit housing corporation (Interfaith Housing Corporation). The attached material provides additional details pertaining to this proposal.

A few additional news media representatives are being extended an invitation to participate in this meeting and we hope that you can come.

  • Text: April 12, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO; Mr, Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman Housing Resources Committee During the past several weeks I have become increasingly concerned over progress (or perhaps lack of it) being made in getting many of our proposed low cost housing projects off the ground. Very few have actually made it, thus far. Recently at least eight (8) developers have talked with me seriously about it. They are be- coming quite apprehensive about the success of the program, unless some of the current obstacles and roadblocks are removed and several have suggested withdrawing from the program entirely, The summary report on problem areas, recently prepared for the Executive Group meeting of the Housing Resources Committee, April 16, tends te bring the problems into sharp focus, Of legitimate proposals which have already been made, #900 units are in jeopardy. The principal problems are the following: l. Difficulty for developers in obtaining suitable land at prices which make development of low cost housing economically feasible, 2. Constant opposition by single family home owners to apartment and co-op developments anywhere in the general area in which they live. 3. Limitation on availability of sites considered “excellent” by FHA; and FHA's extreme conservatism on approving sites in proximity to other approved sites, for fear of glutting the market in such areas. 4%, Reluctance of the Planning Department to support necessary re- zoning in certain areas for which general plans have been made or are contemplated for other types of development in the future. 5. Opposition by NAACP and local Negro officials in HUD to construction of additional low cost housing in areas which they consider occupied predominately by Negroes, The effect of this is being also reflected in FHA. This has reached a very serious and critical stage and is extremely detrementai to the program. 6. Difficulty, politically, because of neighborheed objections to get rezoning of avallabie sites fer low cost housing. Mr. Cecil A. Alexander Page 2, One barometer of the seriousness of the problem is indicated by the decreasing number of housing units permitted in Atlanta in recent years: 1963 = 91293: 1964 + 3629; 1965 - 2656; 1966 = 2382 Still another problem is the difficulty, with current facilities, in keeping up with the program and timely foliow through on all proposed developments. On February 20, we had 59 known proposals. Today we have 70 and the number is increasing. It is virtually impossible under our present system for one person, myself, to timely follow up on all projects as closely as is desirable or essential to insure their successful execution. Furthermore, our Committee Panels have not thus far proven very productive. Keeping contact with them is awviaogy job within itself. aomcam ing Consequently, as the program progresses I am becoming more and more conscious of the necessity for a change in procedures; and suggest the following: A. An all out effort be made to resolve the current difficulty with HUD, promoted by the NAACP. I do not see how the City can afford to lose on this issue, and I doubt that it can be satisfactorily resolved at the local level, but will require strong representations from the Mayor directeto Washington. B. Implement John Cherry's initial suggestion of setting up teams of key people (Realtor, Financier, Site Planner, Architect, Builder and when appropriate, a Nonprofit Sponser)., This is perhaps the most practical approach to this complex problem. Each team could thus be given a specific assignment of a certain number of units to produce. Ten such teams with assignments of 500 units each seems appropriate to start with. This would produce 5,000 units (or one year's goal for the program), Such procedure would also permit a pyramiding of administration through the Housing Resources Committee, in as much as we could then deal with only one selected individual (Captain) of each team. This would also automatically broaden the base of responsibility and effort among the several key people on each team, rather than leaving it all to individual developers. Other developers, of course, would not be discouraged, and more time would be available for lending assistance and advice to them when needed. C. Initiate concrete steps toward creation of a Housing Development Corporation, with adequate funds, and with mission similar to the one in Philadelphia. D, Also, an educational program should be conducted for City officials (Board of Aldermen and Planning Board) to thoroughly acquaint them as to needs for housing and advantages of the program; and with the general public, explaining how the people themselves can help rather than hinder the program. The latter should preferably be done through lay groups. The Board of Aldermen should be specifically briefed on the preblems confronting the Housing Resources Committee in accomplishment of its mission and their whole hearted cooperation and suppert where needed, should be solicited. E. A series of clear talking, straight from the shoulder, newspaper, TV, and radio presentations are needed as to requirements and obstacles that need to be over= come. This is very much in order now. (A typical example ef this need was illustrated in the Zoning Committee hearing April 6, (#2-67+33-G) in which petition to rezone a 20-acre tract off Browns Mill Read from N-1 to A-1, to permit construction of 264 units Mr. Cecil A. Alexander Page 3. of 221 d (3) co-op sales housing was denied, over ruling the Joing Planning Board recommendation, because people in the general neighborhood apparently did not under- stand what was proposed and about a dozen people from the area appeared in opposition at the hearing. This opposition killed the rezoning and may cause the death of the project). . F. Rezoning is needed of substantial tracts of vacant Industrial and low density Residential land to higher density Residential, with certain portions ear marked for low cost housing. In this connection, major policy decisions are necessary as to which is to have preference; continuation of existing zoning in anticipation of future development, which may never materialize, or making suitable locations available now to meet the City's urgent need for low cost housing. In this connection, three specific plans, Collier Heights, Boulder Park and the Peyton Road area, all perhaps well conceived at the time they were prepared, constitute the majority of the open land area in the western part of the City and most ef it is currently reserved for single family development at very low density. The current needs of the City for higher density development, requires a reconsideration and evaluation of those plans. The R-4 Zoning in the bulk of the Seventh Ward, much of it open land, is another example. Recommend the precedures proposed in A - F above be placed in effect as soon as possible.

City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen, I am writing this letter to you as one of the developers for the proposed low rent turnkey housing for your city and at the suggestion of Mr. Cecil Alexander with whom I have discussed our problem or stalemate as it now appears. So that you might be able to more clearly uiew our position I will attempt to give you a brief background: We and our real estate agents spent many hours and days scouring Atlanta for the best possible sites from September to November 1966, and we finally narrowed our findings to two; one of which is the Skipper and Harwell Road site. In early November we presented same to the Atlanta Housing Authority who together with the Regional Housing Authority gave us approval for same per copy of letter enclosed of November 21, 1966. I also wish to call to your attention the fact that the regional officials together with the project planner from HAA and two officials from Washington visited this site and all expressed their approval of same. Therefore, based on this approval, we proceeded to hire the firm of Good and Goodstein, Architects, Knoxville, Tennessee, who have been the Archi- tects for fifteen to twenty Low Rent Housing Projects in the past five years, and therefore are cognizant of the requirements and procedures of Low Rent Housing. The Architects, The Atlanta Housing Authority officials, the Regional Authority officials and ourselves have had many meetings during the past five and one half months in order to be able to present our preliminary proposal which we did on March 30, 1967. We have all worked together without any knowledge of there being any objection to the proposed location. We have spent between $30,000.00 and $35,000.00 in actual costs because we were assured that the property was approved by everyone concerned and we have designed what we believe to be excellent apartments costing nearly $20,000.00 per unit.

I am glad to see your interest in housing, as it is a very important factor in current living in metropolitan areas. However, housing responsibility. in Atlanta, as in many other American cities, for all practical purposes, currently is limited to the boundaries of the City Limits.

Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Mr, Archer D. Smith, representing Mr. Charles L. Weltner, Acting Chairman, Legal Panel Mr. Henry L. Hills, representing Mr. Lee Burge, Chairman, Finance and Non-Profit funds Panel Mr. John Wilson, member, Finance and Non-Profit Funds Panel Mr. Charles F. Palmer, representing Mr. Clarence 0. Coleman, Chairman, Public Housing Panel Mr. F. C. Terrell, representing Mr. Wallace L. Lee, member, Land Acquisition Panel Dr. Vivian Henderson, Acting Chairman, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. J. A. Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. Stewart Wight, member, Land Acquisition Panel Dean William S. Jackson, Chairman, Social Problems Panel Mr. Edward S. Simon, Vice-Chairman, Business Participation Panel Mr, Dale Clark, Chairman, Public Information Panel Mr. Malcolm D. Jones, Director Also present at the meeting were: Mr. William S. Holland, Executive Director, CACUR Mr. Lester A. Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and then called on Mr. Jones to present the current status report of the program, Mr. Jones stated that his office was in the process of retyping the lowe income housing inventory report but had onli the summary ready for this meeting (Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented to Executive Group members), He explained that included in the inventory are apertment units being develoved under conventional financing which cdo not cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a duplex and $15,000 for a single family house. He explained that the last page of the summary contains notes, sme of which are especially significant. He explained that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on August 31, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on the whole we have lost ground in this program since the previous report two months ago. He then called attention to the extract from the CIP revort pertaining to low-income housing recuirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder). He also pointed out that we are not really building lowecost housine in public housing but low-income housing. He also explained Item (a) on the agenda and the correspondin:; document in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertaining to available land suitably zoned for the low-income housing program. At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones' office was under- staffed to handle the statistical data required by the CIP and proposed that from here on out when someone goes to the Building Department for a permit we should try to get the Permit Desk to list what the rent on the units will be and number of bedrooms per unit; that there is no way we can require this legally; and that another thing that we need to do is to also go back to the developers now in the program and get more specific information on their plans. He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee for not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures being built ~ are reasonably good and that his feclin:'s are that a great deal more interest should be put in the lowest rental-purchase ranges; that we can get more in that price range from the prefabricated housing; that the carrying charges on these per month is important anc we should find out what it is; that to meet the really tough part of the program means going to the City for additional help. He also asked for comments from members of the Committee. Mr. Clark said he would support askin; for more help; that he also saw a news report for housing that wovld rent for $50 to $70 per month, under the Farmers Association program; that it is in DeKalb County, and is called City Line. Mr. Alexander stated that is a good start to zet lowecost housing in the counties. Another member stated that the Farmers Association prozram is also a part of the FHA program. Mr. Palmer inquired as to the definition of low-cost housing? Mr. Jones replied that it is essentially a matter of interpretation, Mr. Alexander stated that is was from $0 to $55 per month, Mr. Palmer commented "And they want low-income housing built uncer private enterprise?" Mr. Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey development. Mr. Jones added "And even Rent Supplement", Mr. Alexander again proposed asking the City for a Clerk and developing a form for the Building Department to get filled out at the time permits are obtained anc stated that we will have to talk to Mr. Wofford about that. A motion was made that the matter be left in Mr, Jones' hands, Nr. Yates seconded it. The matter was drop»ed there. Mr. Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zoning matters is not an open and shut case as to how to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as a extracurricular roll to assist the develovers in this program; that this has been done in © several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to fo around looking at these sites to recommend those which we consider reasonable, Mr. Jones explained that this is what he and Mr. Gates have been attemmting to do; that they have been out with the s»xonsors and actually looked at most of the sites and have only listed anc encouraged those which they felt were practical and desirable; that in a several instances they have discouraged sponsors from submittins sites which they felt were impracticable or unsuitable. Mr. Alexander continued that his feeling is that we should try to aid and assist the builders in this program but that we have no power to chanze what is going on and that we are having our pro»osals turned down one by one for various reasons. He stated that the approach which he felt we should take is to issue a general statement about the housing program, its needs, and the shortage of land that is now suitably zoned and to work toward getting a rezoning of the entire City, with due consideration for low-income housing needs; that as for working with the developers we should be governed by what we see is acceptable to the Board of Aldermen and the Building Department in granting permits; and further to come to some conclusion about the problems. He stated that we should also help the developers arrange meetings with the Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone who wants to talk to them about deficiencies in Community Facilities related to the housing program, which in some instances have been legimate, such as parks, transportation, traffic, schools etc. He further stated that at the same time the urgency of this program has seemed to escape some »eople; that one thing which we also need is to emphasize the requirement for additional low-income housing in the neighboring cities and countics and make it clear that we are not trying to create a haven here in Atlanta for the whole country to come to and move in on this programs; that this may happen, but we should try to avoi' it. He stated that the CIP requirement is for replacement of houses and avartmenits that are unfit for human habitation. He then called upon Mr. Jones for comments. Mr. Jones stated he feels that it we do not take a position to actively support the cevelopers who have proposed good projects and which appear reasonable, he cid not know who would; that he was personally inclined to feel that we can do a service if we as a Committee take a »osition on such projects; that he does not think however that many areas will be built in the City which already have a surplus of community facilities; that he has hopec that we can supply facilities such as parks, schools, playgrounds etc. simultaneous with the development of the housing projects, by relying on other Agencies and other Departments; that those details should be checked into carefully and coor

Units under lease (65 units, Murphy Apts.; 1:8 units, Tennessean Commons; 31 units, Sims Maddox's Apts. at Capitol and Vinara, require rehabilitation; 18 units on Darzan Place.) Negotiations under way for leasing 51 additional units. : ~ Total Potential De td ta e I. Je PS o HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE October 30, 1967 NOTES Uni-structure - Daniel W. Gaskin; Magnolia Corporations - David S. Wolff; and Mod (Knox Mobile Homes), W. F. Silmore, are all very much interested in installing prefab mobile homes in Atlanta as manufactured. They have thus far been prevented from doing so because of local Code requirements. These still appear to be the best possibility for getting low-cost single family homes in Atlanta. No interest in this field has been show by private enterorise through conventional Construction. Southern Stress-Plus, Inc. - John D. Johnson recently exhibited at Lenox Square a patented panel (assembled on site) prefab house to sell, installed on purchasers lot, as follows: 1 BRm = $5,000.00; 2 Bam ~ $5,800.00; 3 BRm - $6,600.00. Proposed locations for low cost housing are being coordinated with the Planning Dept., for adequacy of Communtiy Facilities, existing or proposed. Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for adequacy of school facilities, The Foundation for Cooperative Housing, which developed Eastwych Village and Cambridge Square (both in DeKalb County), are sponsoring the 200 unit London Town House development in Atlanta (Item F-5), In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and setting other avprovals on sites proposed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that the low-income housing program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial vortion of the program on small scattered sites. Thus far, 555 single family houses (Item F-12) and 2,)));0 units in duplexes and relatively small apartment developments, all under conventionel financing, are in this category. No proposal has yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50.00 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30.00 - $50.00 per month-rental purchase range. Attorney Blackwell in Decatur has proposed a concrete 3bedroom, 1 bath, 1,000 sq. ft. house which he claims can sell for $6,000, plus land costs, incl. heating and air conditioning equipment, National Homes Corp. of Lafayette, Inc. placed on the market Feb. 1, 1967, a 800 - 900 S.F. (0.S. dimensions) 3 bedroom, prefabricated, >reassembled panel, single family house plus a 96 S.F. (1.S. dimensions) storage building manufactured by Arrow Metal Products Corp, to sell under FHA 221 d (2). Price includes plumbing, electrical, heating units, stove % refrigerator, House can_be completely assembled in &5 man hours; 53 of these (with conventional plunbing) are being erected (prexsuld) in the Thomasville Urban Renewal Area. Apvrox. 800 sq. ft. house is priced at $12,200, 900 sq. ft. house is priced at $12,600. Adrian Homes Corp. has proposed a prefab to retail for about $7,500 plus land, foundation, closing and possibly tapping fees (See Item C-10 for others). Saul Gray is one of five partners in ea Corporation which owns 280 new units off Bankhead at Elbridge St., which he wants to sell, + a potential development on the site for 512 additional units, Area is already zoned A~l. Rehabilitation by Housing Code Division of Building Department on Boulevard in Bedford-Pine U. R. Project (aporoximately 700 wits involved) commenced February 1. The U. R. project is still in survey and planning stage. A list is available in Housing Resources Committee office of 103 units on Boulevard which the owners stated they wish to sell, rather than rehabilitate. This list has been made available to the H.A. and toa National concern interested in developing a Rehabilitation Demonstration project in that area. Ralph L. Dickey of Atlanta has proposed a non-profit revolving fund enterprise to acquire substandard housing, renovate it and resell, primarily through private enterprise, CACUR recently decided to form a non-profit corporation to rehabilitate existing units under 221 (h). Morris Brown College is another such sponsor, . Information is welcomed as to changes, additions or deletions in material contained in this report. (Call 522-63, Ext. 30).

The City to expedite applications for its future proposed Urban Renewal Projects in order to make additional land available for low-income housing, but _to execute redevelopment of such project areas on a section-by-section basis only, in order to minimize displacement at any one time. Plunkettown and East Atlanta would provide excellent locations, although Plunkettown has previously been considered primarily for industrial development. Effort should be made to provide for extension of low-income housing development in Plunkettown, southward into Clayton county. where the major portion of the area needing renewal already lies. 6. Establish policy that determined effort be made to. locate some low-income . housing in each Ward of the City, recognizing that the bulk of such housing will of necessity have to go in areas where land is available at prices which make {itoxcone housing development economically feasible.

The following members were present: Mr, Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee Mr. F, C, Terrell, representing Mr. Wallace L. Lee, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr, Clayton R, Yates, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. J, A. Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel Mr. W. W. Gates, Consultant Also present were invited guests, including: Mr. George W. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, Chamber of Commerce, Housing and Redevelopment Committee Mr, Dan E. Sweat Jr,, Director of Governmental Liaison Planning Director, Collier Gladin, presided, Mr, Gladin stated that he and the members of his staff were very happy to have an opportunity to meet with the Housing Resources Committee and discuss mutual problems. He stated that every effort would be made in the future to work with the Housing Resources Committee. Mr, Gladin briefly explained the progress being made by his Department in preodueing a new LandeUse map, He presented a map showing progress to date, but explained that many changes would necessarily have to be made before the map is completed and approved by other city officials, Mr, Gladin also stated that consideration should be given to higher densities fer low-income housing, including use of high rise. Mr, Pierce Mahoney of the Planning Department explained the proposed LandsUse map in detail and also exhibited a second map indieating projections to 1983. He stated that the locations of the proposed rapid transit system stations have not been determined and this could be one item that would involve possible changes. City Planner, J. C. Johnson distributed a list of possible sites for low- income housing prepared by the Planning Department on October 23, 1967. He stated that in his opinion a package of 10 to 15 possible low-income housing sites distributed throughout the City should be submitted at one time for zoning consideration, rather than individual requests for each property. He stated that the package approach would hopefully aid in surmounting neighborhood and Feceral objections such as have been encountered in connection with individual parcel zoning. He explained that Mayor Ivan Allen's goal of 16,800 low-cost units in five years has been slowe!: by objections of residents and the Federal government, high land costs and difficulty in getting zoning changes. Johnson s-id most of the sites the planners are considering aren't zoned for apartment units. Residents on numerous occasicns have appeared before the Aldermanic Zoning Committee to beat back requests for zoning changes that would permit low-cost housing in their neighborhoods. Mr. Johnson ssid that he hoped the Housing Resources Committee, the Citizens Advisory Committee on Urban Renowsal, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Housing Committee or some similar group would pursue the package idea, develope it and submit it to the proper zoning authorities. He stated that the list distributed was incomplete and that probably a number of additional areas could be added. Mr, Johnson submitte? a proposed development plan, using the old Ball Park site on Pence de Leon Avenve as an illustration of how a site might be developed for mixed uses including high rise apartments, shopping areas, etc. Mr. Gates, HRC Committee Consultant, provided members of the Planning Department with a list of 22 Proposed Sites, dated October 10, 1967, which owners or those having control, have voluntarily listed with the HRC for sale for use in the low-income Housing Program. Only ) of these sites are zoned A-1 however. Mr. Cecil Alexander, Chairman of the Housing Resources Committee stated that there appears to be an excess of land in the City presently zoned for industrial use and suggested that study be given to determine if some of this land should be released for use as apartment sites. Mr. Alexander also stressed the urgent need for an overall Land-Use plan which would make additional apartment sites available. The meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m. Respectfully submitted, tie OO EE cys SF TS ROL Malcolm D. Jones ¢ ¢ Supervisor of Inspection Services Encls: Invitational Notice.
