M., Friday, July 18, 1969. Committee members present: Rodney Cook, Chairman Q. V. Williamson Jack Summers John Flanigen Committee members absent: Gregory Griggs Charlie Leftwich George Cotsakis Hugh Pierce Edwin Sterne, ) Housing Authority Frank Etheridge ) The Chairman called the meeting to order and the following business was considered: 1. A. PUBLIC HEARING - ANNEXATION PETITION BY JULIUS SCHNEIDER MEDICAL FOUNDATION, INC., COLUMBUS UNION CONFERENCE ASSOCIATION OF SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST AND EUGENE A, ANDERSON. Charles Watkins, First National Bank Building, was present representing the three property owners involved. Two other persons were present in support of the annexation. There was no opposition. The staff presented a detailed report to each committee member present relative to this petition, certifying that it meets all requirements set forth by the State Enabling Legislation and applicable city ordinances, and recommended its approval. The property in question lies in Land Lot 29 of the I4th District of Fulton, formerly Fayette County, and involves 69.1 acres; of the total acreage, 46.6 acres is zoned A-1 apartments; I7 acres is zoned R-3 and a smaller C-1 tract lies in Fulton County. Mr. Gladin explained the city would be annexing this property under the zoning most closely related to the existing county zoning, which in this instance is practically identical to the county's. All city services to the area are available, or can be provided upon request (letters to this effect from the appropriate city departments are included in the report). In answer to questioning by Mr. Summers, Mr. Watkins stated the owners wish to come into the city for the services that are available and to make their land more marketable for housing and sale of apartments. Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Two The committee expressed its concern about a tract immediately to the north lying in unincorporated Fulton County which, upon approval of this annexation petition, would become landlocked and asked if it could be included along with this petition. Mr. Gladin explained this is one type of problem you incur in the petition route and it could not be legally included, but could be brought up at the next filing period in May, 1970. The committee felt this would be highly desirable and should be encouraged ai that time, Mr. Eugene Anderson, part-owner of the tract which would become landlocked, appeared speaking for himself and Mrs. Schneider, also part-owner, stating they would be willing to have their property annexed; that, however, he could not officially speak for Mr. Steinmetz, another owner, but Mr. Steinmetz had told him he would be willing to be annexed. In answer to questioning by Mr. Cook, Mr. Anderson stated the C-1 zoning approved by the county was done so as part of an overall Medical Complex proposal which subsequently fell through much to their regret and loss, and there is no commercial development in the area presently. There being no further discussion, the matter was referred to Executive Session. In Executive Session, upon unanimous vote, this petition was approved by the committee. KRREKEEEEEE 1. B. PUBLIC HEARING - ANNEXATION PETITION BY JOHN E. LIVADITIS - GARMON ROAD. There was no opposition present. A detailed report relative to this petition certifying its compliance with State Enabling Legislation and applicable city ordinances was presented to each committee member present and the staff recommended approval. The property lies in Land Lot I77 of the I7th District and is approximately 2 acres in size. Mr. Gladin stated the property is presently zoned R-1 (Residential) and would be annexed as R-1; that all services are available, or can be provided upon request (letfersto this effect are a part of the report). Mr. Livaditis was present along with his representative, Robert Smith. Mr. Smith acknowledged they were aware of the fact there are no existing sewers to the property and the present plans are to use two septic tanks, but they are hopeful of working out an easement agreement with the adjoining property owner to connect with an outfall a %, / ' Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Three sewer 150 feet from Mr. Livaditis' property line. Mr. Cook called to Mr. Smith's attention a letter in the report from the Public Works Department stating that sanitary sewer is not available for the property to be annexed on Garmon Road and would not be available until approved by the property owners along this section. Mr. Smith stated they realized securing the easement would be difficult but were still hopeful it could be worked out, and in the meantime, the septic tanks are an alternative. Mr. Smith stated Mr. Livaditis is ready to begin bricking the house and doesn't have any water; since thereis a charge to tap onto the water for property outside the city, he wanted to know if final approval of this petition by the Board of Aldermen would be expedited to relieve him from having to pay this charge. A check with the Water Department indicated that if this committee approves the annexation petition today, they would not charge Mr. Livaditis to tap onto the water prior to final approval of the petition. Messrs. Smith and Livaditis expressed their appreciation to the committee. The matter was then referred to Executive Session, and upon unanimous vote, this petition was approved by the committee. KEKKKEKEKKE o 2. STATUS OF RECERTIFICATION OF WORKABLE PROGRAM Pierce Mahony explained that the Planning staff is progressing rapidly toward completion of work for recertification of the Workable Program for a two-year period, rather than one year which has been approved in the past. He stated there have been considerable revisions in the requirements of the program for recertification, making it much more difficult to put together and committing us to a much more solid approach. He commented briefly on some of the new aspects of the program, such as the housing and relocation element and the department's anticipated participation in the HUD 70! planning program. He explained a federal requirement for participation in the 70I program is that one portion of the planning studies be a housing study; further, the personnel situation throughout the city, especially in the technical and professional level, is getting serious and the Planning Department hopes to solve some of its problems by hiring temporary personnel on 70! planning programs who could moveinto permanent planning vacancies as they occur. He went on to say these new requirements, particularly housing planning for low and moderate income families, points up the critical need for the Urban Information System Minutes | Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Four | for the city, because of the various and sundry data which can be obtained from it on immediate notice, and he urged the committee's support in implementation of this system. He presented a draft of "Workable Program Five-Year Goals" and stated the city will be committed to these goals and emphasized the need to begin considering an advance two-year budget. Considerable discussion then ensued about the status of the Mayor's Housing Program. Colonel Jones of the Housing Resources Committee stated that the city is about halfway through the initial five-year program. He cited figures for the two and one-half year period, stating we have under construction and completed approximately 8,000 units, and we have in the pipeline more units than the original goal of 17,000. He stated, however, a lot of the units in planning are being lost because we do not have properly zoned locations to put them on. Mr. Cook asked on what basis units are classified as being in the "planning stage". Mr. Jones explained they are put in this category when a rezoning application is filed and a proposal is submitted; if the zoning is denied, they are taken out; that more zonings for this purpose have been denied than approved. He cited the loss of 21,000 units through recent rezoning denials. Mr. Cook stated this doesn't concur with figures he obtained from the Planning Department. Mr. Gladin explained the staff analysis referred to was done about a year ago and at that time the zoning approvals were running about 80-90%; that the staff is in the process of preparing an up-to-date analysis of the housing program. Mr. Cook asked for and was furnished with a copy of Mr. Jones' latest housing report. After a cursory examination, Mr. Cook expressed concem about the discrepancy in figures contained in the report and those stated orally by Colonel Jones. Being a member of the Zoning Committee, he stated he was tired of charges being made that the city's housing goals were not being met because of rezoning denials as he did not believe this to be the case, and he finds it very confusing and frustating to be unable to justify his position when he is unable to secure reliable statistics; that he would like statistics differentiating what percentage of the 8,000 units quoted by Colonel Jones is actually low and moderate income housing. Mr. Kennedy stated he had very strong reservations that this percentage was quite low, that as stated by Mr. Gladin, the Planning staff is in the process of analyzing the Housing Program for the last two and one-half years and he felt this report would produce the type statistics Mr. Cook is looking for. ) BOORUM & PEASE “ Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Five Mr. Gladin stated he realized the problems in working with the housing figures, and again this points up the need for good management procedures, which need to be standardized, and the Urban Information System for quick delivery of these statistics over a period of time. He also commented on the need for more emphasis on the city's total housing needs. Mr. Cook directed the staff to prepare a letter for his signature to Colonel Jones requesting clarification on the following: 1. Is the actual number of units under construction and completed for the last two and one-half years the 8,000 oral figure given by Colonel Jones, or the 12,000 figure in his report of May 15, 1969; 2. What percentage of this figure is for low and moderate income housing; 3. The method used for determining what is low and moderate income housing, the name of the projects and the number of units in each project. He stated that in looking at the May I5 report and oral figures by Colonel Jones, it would appear we are moving backwards and this prompted Mr. Flanigen to remark he had no doubt but what the program is "slipping". With additional reference to the housing question, Mr. Mahony stated that at the last meeting of the Housing Resources Committee, the Legal Panel discussed the need for establishing a Housing Planning Agency within the city government to relieve the Housing Resources Committee members who are presently spending an inordinate amount of time doing surveys and research in the field of housing. He stated the logical place for such a housing function would be in the Planning Department, particularly in light of the 7Ol planning program; that the staff would like the committee's support; and he presented a letter for Mr. Cook's signature as Chairman of the Planning and Development Committee supporting the department's position. Colonel Jones stated that the Legal Panel has been studying this matter, but they have not submitted a position report to Mr. Alexander and he does not know what type of report will be submitted if and when if is, and he felt any action by this committee on this matter would be premature at this time. Mr. Gladin stated the letter does not request any final action; that it merely makes a recommendation for the Housing Resources Committee to consider in making their recommendation. Colonel Jones stated he still felt the letter was in anticipation of something and premature. er Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Six Mr. Mahony commented that the Planning Department feels very strongly about this and consequently wanted to take a positive approach, rather than waiting for a proposal from the Housing Resources Committee and reacting. The committee unanimously approved the letter and Mr. Cook appended his signature thereto. Referring back to the status report on the Workable Program, Mr. Gladin stated the staff hopes to present the final draft to this committee July 28, 1969 for review, and will request committee approval at a meeting on August |, 1969; it will then be forwarded to the next meeting of the Board of Aldermen where, hopefully, it will be finally approved and hand delivered that same afternoon to HUD. This will give HUD ample review time prior to the October expiration date for last year's recertification. REEKEKKEEEE Mr. Mahony explained the City of Mountain View, Clayton County and the City of Atlanta have common problems in the Plunkettown area which require joint study and action to solve. The following Resolution to initiate such action was approved: - A RESOLUTION BY PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE WHEREAS, the City Planning Department is presently studying the Plunkettown neighborhood for inclusion in the Atlanta 1970 Neighborhood Development Program, and WHEREAS, the Plunkettown neighborhood extends south of the Atlanta City Limits into the City of Mountain View and Clayton County, and WHEREAS, Clayton County, Mountain View, and the City of Atlanta face common problems in this area. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of the City of Atlanta that Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. requests the Board of Commissioners of Clayton County and the Mayor and Council of the City of Mountain View to participate in a joint study designed to slove the problems of the Plunkettown neighborhood. The committee heard from Charles Stinson, President of the Federation of Southwest Clubs, a report on the first phase of the Southwest Community Study, being done for the Federation by graduate planning students from Georgia Tech. A copy of the first study phase was presented to each committee member present for information and no action was requested. REEKKEREEE R” ® 2fE i BOORUM & PEASE “ R” ®) EASE “Note x Pt Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Seven Mr. Gladin informed the committee members that the Sign Ordinance had been approved by the Zoning Committee and he anticipated submitting it to the full Board of Aldermen for approval Monday, July 21, 1969, and would like this committee's support at the Monday meeting. He further informed them we will be working toward recruiting personnel to implement the ordinance, that he has requested by letter that Mr. William H. Wofford, Building Official, and the Personnel Board prepare a joint study on such personnel needs. RREKEREKER Mr. Gladin stated he had received a communication from the BOND (Bass Organization for Neighborhood Development) Community requesting to appear before the committee to discuss being included in the 1970 NDP program; that he felt they should have this opportunity and he would like authorization to notify them to appear at the next meeting of the committee. In answer to Mr. Flanigen, Mr. Gladin stated the freeway ramp question in the BOND area had not been resolved, but there are continuing discussions with Ray Nixon and the State Highway Department on the matter and he felt it could be worked out. The committee concurred for the BOND group to appear at the next meeting. RREKEEEEEEE There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned. KRREKKREERESE Approved: Respectfully submitted: Rodney /Gook, Chairman Joanne Parks, Secretary

  • Text: ATTITUDE SURVEY OF THE RESIDENTS OF PLUNKETTOWN City of Atlanta Department of Planning August 11, 1969 This report presents the results of an attitude survey conducted among the people of the Atlanta section of Plunkettown by the City of Atlanta Department of Planning at the request of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. The purpose of this survey was to explore, on a broad base, the attitudes of the people toward living in Plunkettown versus living elsewhere, and to discover which aspects of life in Plunkettown the people consider to be major problems. The ultimate purpose of this report is to provide information concerning the people's desires toward remaining in Plunkettown to help the Board of Aldermen in making the decision as to whether or not an urban renewal project in Plunkettown will be a residential rehabilitation and rebuilding project. Interviews were conducted during the daytime hours on Friday, August 1, and Monday, August 4, and during the evening hours on Tues- day, August 5. The group of interviewers who conducted the survey included two members of the Planning Department staff and five summer interns from the Mayor's office. All interviewers were white. (A list of interviewers appears in Appendix A.) Methodology The survey was conducted through use of a door-to-door oral inter- view. An attempt was made to conduct at least one interview in each household. Contact was attempted at each household at least three times: morning, afternoon, and evening. In all, interviews were con- ducted in eighty-two households, or 85% of all households. The interview questionnaire contained two basic types cf questions, The first type asked for factual information such as place of work, travel time to work, number of persons in the household, and ownership of property. The second asked attitudinal questions about the desira- bility of Plunkettown as a place to live as compared to other places. General Results The factual results of the survey show that: 1. The workers who live in Plunkettown have an average reported travel time to work of twenty minutes by car; and that over half (26 of 41) work within two miles of Plunkettown, 2. Thirty-eight per cent (38%) of the present housing is over- crowded, having one or more persons per room, 3. Of the eighty-two households surveyed, thirty-two (39%) owned their houses while the remaining fifty (61%) are renters. The results: 1. as 3. Ten of the interviewed families own property other than that upon which they are living. Six own other property in Plunkettown. Four others own property in Clayton County, Northwest Fulton County, East Point, and East Atlanta. These four owners reported plans to build new homes on this property. Forty-two of the eighty~two interviews were conducted during aircraft peak traffic periods. These forty-two interviews lasted an average of seventeen minutes and were interrupted an average of seven times for an average of eighty-one seconds per interview, e.g, 84 of the interview time was lost due to aircraft noise. attitudinal results of the survey show the following major A majority of interviewees would prefer living elsewhere to living in Plunkettown as it is presently constituted. (See Question 11.) A majority of the interviewees consider aircraft noise, a problem which cannot be fully solved, to be a major problem to living in Plunkettown. (See Questions 10a, 15, and 17b.) There appears to be a desire among some of the interviewees to move together to a "New Plunkettown". At this point in time, fully reliable attitudes on this issue cannot be expected as the people do not now have a real opportunity to consider this choice. (See Questions 12 and the "Many of my friends live here" response in 17a.) If they were to move, there is a definite desire among the interviewees to remain in an outlying area, as opposed to downtown, where they can occupy single family type houses. (See Questions 12a and 13.) Detailed Results This section presents the complete interview form and the tabu- lated results for each question asked.

General Instructions, 1. This is a general guide for conducting a house-to-house survey in the Plunkettown neighborhood. Make sure that all questions included are answered; however, if a respondant refuses to answer any questions, go on to the next item on your questionnaire. Record reason for no response if possible. You may include other questions; record them as well as the interviewee's answer. 2. Please record all answers as accurately and carefully as pos- sible. 3. Let the interview continue if the interviewee wishes to talk. However, one hour should, in most cases, be the maximum time re- guired for the interview. 4. Record the date of the interview, the time at which the interview begins and is completed, and the total amount of time the interview lasts, Record the number of times the interview is interrupted by aireraft noise, and the approximate length of such interruptions, B. Introduction. The following general introduction should be used in the interview situation: "Hello, my name is - IL represent the City of Atlanta (show your identification card). The Mayor and Board of Aldermen are concerned about the people living in Plunkettown. Many different suggestions have been made about what the people of Plunket- town want from the City. However, we feel that it is necessary to talk directly to the people of Plunkettown. For the next few days we will be talking with all Plunkettown residents and asking them questions to help us find out exactly what the people want. Could you please take a few minutes to answer these questions? If subject refuses to participate in the interview, try to find out why. If he indicates he is too busy, try to make an appointment to inter- view him at another date. If he has another reason, try again to get the interview. However, if he absolutely refuses, do not persist. Record a response and, if possible, the reason. If more than one member of a household wants to participate in the interview session, record their responses separately. Each interview record should contain the responses of one person only. However, if this is not possible, indicate that responses came from two or more people. Remember that the main purpose is to get answers to the basic questions contained in our questionnaire. Lf the interviewee has questions to ask of you, try to delay this discussion until the end of the formal interview. DO NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to answer questions of which you are unsure. The purpose of this inter- view is to find out what che people in Plunkettown think and want. If people ask questions you cannet answer, refer them to Mr. Johnny Robinson or George Aldridge. (You will have a supply of their personal cards to pass out to everyone.) Cc. Close Close the interview by answering any questions you can, and by thanking the interviewee for his cooperation. State again that if he has any additional questions he should call Mr. Johnny Robinson or Mr. George Aldridge. Also, if he has any additional comments, attempt to record them on the answer sheet. (Give Mr. Aldridge's and Mr. Rob- inson's cards.)

  • Text: ATTITUDE SURVEY OF THE RESIDENTS OF LIGHTNING City of Atlanta Department of Planning November 13, 1969 This report deals with the results of an attitude survey conducted in Lightning. The section of Atlanta known as Lightning is bounded by Northside Drive, Hunter Street, and Simpson Street. Lightning is zoned for industrial use, This survey was conducted by the City of Atlanta Planning Department upon the request of the citizens of Lightning. The citizens voiced their support for this survey or a community meeting held Tuesday, October 14, 1969, The Lightning attitude survey was conducted for several reasons. First of all, the questionnaire is aimed at securing two basic types of information. The first group of questions, one through nine, deal with the attainment of factual information, such as the number of persons in each household, The second group of questions, ten through seventeen, explore the attitudes of the people toward living in Lightning and the problems involved. In addition to securing information, a second purpose of this survey is to let the citizens of Lightning know that the City of Atlanta is con- cerned and interested in their problems. A third purpose of the Lightning survey is to get both the citizens of Lightning and the City of Atlanta to start thinking about the short and long range problems of this area, This includes the exposure of short range problems that can perhaps be solved in the near future, with the people of Lightning and the city working together. The survey was conducted Tuesday, October 28, 1969 through Thursday, October 30, on a door-to-door verbal interview basis. Twelve interviewers, black and white, were used to conduct the survey: One City Planning Department employee, two City Planning Department interns, one Model Cities employee, and eight HUD interns. (A list of interviewers appears in appendix A). They interviewed a total of 105 households, which is 77% of the total number of households in Lightning. Contact at each household was attempted at least three times: Morning, afternoon, and evening. General Results The factual results of the survey show that: 1. Forty-four per cent (44%) of the respondents live in housing which is overcrowded, having one or more persons per room, 2. Of the 105 households surveyed, eighty-one per cent (81%) rented their residences and the remaining nineteen per cent (19%) were home-owners, Seventy-five per cent (75%) of the renters and eighty per cent (80%) of the homeowners stated that they could not afford to pay more for housing. 3. Seventy-four of the interviewers, or seventy per cent (70%) were unemployed, due to disability, retirement, household responsibility or simple lack of ability to find work, 4, The average length of residence in Lightning of the respondents was nineteen years, with a range of 1,5 months to sixty-six years, 5. The average age of the respondents was 52.4 years, with a range of twelve to eighty-two years.

I 00 10 1_1_ 12 �ATTITUDE SURVEY OF THE RE SIDENTS OF PLUNKETTOWN City of At l anta Dep artment of Pl anning Augus t 11 , 1969 �- This report presents the results of an attitude survey conducted among the people of the Atlanta section of Plunkettown by the City of Atlanta Department of Planning at the request of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen . The purpose of this survey was to explore, on a broad base, the atti tudes of the people toward living in Plunke ttown versus living elsewhere, and to discover which aspects of life in Plunkettown the people consider to be major problems . The ultimate purpose of this report is to provide information concerning the people ' s desires toward r emai ning in Plunket town to help the Board of Aldermen in making the dec ision as to whether or not an urban renewal project in Plunkettown will be a residential rehabilitation and rebuilding project. Interviews were conducted during the daytime hours on Friday, August 1 , and Monday , August 4, and during the evening hours on Tuesda y, August 5. The group of interviewers who conducted the survey included t wo members of the Planning Department staff and five summer i nterns from the Mayor ' s office . All interviewers were white . (A list of int erviewers appears in Appendix A.) Methodology The survey was c onducted through use of a door -to-door ora l interview . An attempt was made t o conduct at le as t one interview in each household. Contact was attempted at each household at leas t three times : morning , afternoon , and evening. In all, interviews were conducted in eighty-two hous eholds , or 85% of all households. The interview questionnaire contained two basic types of questions . The first type asked f or factu al information such as place of work, travel time to work, number of persons in the household, and ownership of property . The second asked atti tud inal questions about the desirability of Plunket town as a place to live as compared to other places. General Reoults The factual resul ts of the survey show that: 1. The workers who live in Plunkettown have an average reported t ravel time to work of twenty minutes by car; and that over half ( 26 of 41) work within two miles of Plunkettown. 2. Thirty-eight per cent (38%) of the present housing is overcrowded, having one or more persons per room. 3. Of the eighty-two households surveyed, thirty-two (39%) owned their houses while the remaining fifty (61%) are renters. �- 2 - 4. Ten of the interviewed f ami lies own property other than th at upon whi.ch they are living . Six ow-n other property in Plunkettown . four others own property in Cl ayt on County, lorthwest Fulton County, East Point, a nd Eas t Atlanta . These four owners reported plans to build new homes on this property . 5. Forty-two of the eighty-two interviews were conducted during aircra ft peak tra ffic periods . These forty-a~o interviews l asted an average of seventeen minutes and were interrupted an average of seven times for an average of eighty-one seconds per interview, e.g 8% of the interview time was lost due to aircraft noise. 0 The attitudinal results of the survey show the following ma j or results: 1. A majority of interviewees woul d prefer l iving e l sewher e to living in Plunket town as it is presently constituted . (See Question 11.) 2. A ma jority of the interviewees consider aircraft noise, a problem which canno t be fully solved, to be a ma jor probl em to living in Plunke ttown . (See Questions 10a, 15 , and 17b.) 3. There appears to be a desire among some o f the interviewees to move together to a " New Plunkettown". At this point in time , fully reli able attitudes on this issue c annot be expected as the people do not now h ave a real opportunity to consider this choice . (See Questions 12 and the "Many of my friends live here" response in 17 a .) 4. If they were to move, there is a definite desir e among the interviewees to remain in an outlying area, as opposed to downtown , where they c an occupy single family type houses. ( See Questions 12a and 13.) Det ailed Results This section presents the complete interview form and the tabul ated results for each question asked.

  • Text: ’ FUNDING OF URBAN RENEWAL AND NETGHBORROOD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PROJECTS APRIL 29, 1969° \ ' The City of Atlanta is presently engaged in eight Urban Renewal Projects and five Neighborhood Development Program Projects (3 in execution, 2 in planning only). These projects are funded jointly by the City and the Federal Government. The funding scdawenest calls for a contribution . equal to one»third of the Net Project costs from the City with the re+ maining two»thirds being supplied by the Federal Government. The City's share may be in the form of cash contributions or non-cash grants-in-aid, these grants-in-aid are demolition and removal work, project or site improvements, public and supporting facilities, and others such as eredits from construction of public housings. At present, the eight Urban Renewal projects presently in execution are summarized as follows: 4 Net Project Costs $60 million! Local Non-Cash Grants-In-Aid 20 million : Local Cash and Real Estate Credits 1 million This points very emphatically to the fact that our present Urban Renewal program has been financed almost completely through the use of non-cash grants-in-aid, The results of this policy can be seen in the long delays encountered os the closing out of these projects, some of which date back into the 1950's, The cash used for these projects has come from money set aside in the 1957 and 1963 General Obligation Bond Issues and totaling $3.2 million, There« fore, we have, at present, $2.1 million of unencumbered funds available from this source, Of this amount, $1.7 is presently expected to be needed 2 . lof this amount $4.5 million or 74% has been incurred as interest charges, to meet the cash requirements of the Beaford-Pine Neighborhood Development Program Project in 1979. The non-cash contributions of $20 million are the eligible portion of total expenditures totaling about $29 million and have some of the following forms. School : $11.4 million Section 1072 & Special Credits 1.3 million Streets 4.7 million Parks «7 million Water Improvement «6 million Sewer Improvements 66 million Special Facilities «3 million Traffic Improvements . el million Other e3 million $20.0 million Some of the problems encountered because of the use of non-cash contribu- tions (94.8% of total city funding) as the City's source of funding Urban Renewal activities are: ie Butler Street A. Middle School with a total estimated cost of $2 million has been delaying the close of this project, but should be under contract by August of 1969, —_ 2. Rawson ~ Washington og he. fetghbostond Facilities, Building with a total estimated cost of $1 million of which $150,0CO will be an eligible project cost. This project is at present unfunded with the only possible source of funds being through Model Cities, It is presently plannedfor the City to purchase the land from the Housing Authority and hold this until a determination is made Iroedits resultine from the construction of Public Housing. regarding the use of Model Cities funds, B. Park with an estimated cost of $240,000 of which $33,000 will be eligible costs, No source of cancine is presently ascertainable, 3. Rockdale A. Elementary School with an estimated cost of $1.5 million and . expected to be under contract by August of 1969, ; B. An expansion of the existing elementary school with an esti- mated cost of $700,000 and at present unfunded. C. Park with an estimated cost of $75,000 which is also presently unfunded. 4. Thomasville 5 A. Elementary school with $1.5 million estimated cost and ex« pected to be under contract by August, 1969. Be park with estimated cost of $126,000 which is at present unfunded. | Cc, Tw primary schools with $1 million estimated total cost and a middle school with an estimated cost of $2 million are un- funded and no source is seen until at least June of 1971. The advent of the Neighborhood Development Program has brought to an end the period during which the City could pledge an improvement and then wait ert funding became available before completing it. Under the terms of an NDP agreement, the City must have completed or have under contract all non-cash grants-in-aid pledged for that particular year or contribute the required amount in cash. Our present MDP projects were funded for 1969 from already existing improve~ ments or supporting facilities amounting to a total City committment of $10.8 million. This supports a total Neighborhood Development Program of $32.4 million. The 1970 progrem is expected to have the following City requirements; Cash | Non-Cash Bedford-Pine $1.7 million $ .2 million fodel Cities 1.5 million 1.3 million Edgewood . el willion «2 million : Vine City _2k million o2 million $3.4 million $1.9 million This would support a total program of $19.9 million and would increase greatly if the Edgewood and Vine City projects were expanded to a signi- ficant level of activity. This means that to support the fairly light level of activity projected for 1970, the City will need approximately $1.7 willion. If any new areas are added or the level of activity increased this would increase from $2.5 to $4.0 million for 1970, The possible sources of funds include; 1. General Funds ~ This murce is already under considerable pressure and — no relief is presently anvierpaded, 2, The G. 0. Bonds already approved, for issue in the ananne of $4 million annually. The financing of Neighborhood Development Programs finm these bonds wevld requixe the use of almost this entire amount every year and could very likely become embroiled in legal tangles, 3, Another possibility is a special Neighborheod Development Progran General Obligation Bond Issue of $10 + $20 million in 1970 with another - issue 4 or 5 years later or the obtaining of voter approval to issue G. 0. Bonds for this purpose in the amount of $3-5 million per year, Fh This appreach is naturally subject to ‘ims of the public, and, there+ fore, of uncertain dependability. 4, Pex thaps the best mathod would be through the obtaining of a new revenue ales tax or a payroll tax of which a 0 source, by state approval, such as a certain portion would be earmarked for Neighborhoal Development Programs, Of course in the pursuit of a new source of revenue we are at loggerheads with the state and may not be able to obtain a satisfactory revenue source, Regardless of the method you favor in obtaining the neeced funds, it is QD jiperative, if the City of Atlanta is to maintain its progressive image anc to continue its diamatic development, that a source be found; because the continuation of a sig gnificent program of restoration and rehablitation of the central core of Atlanta is a vital element in the continued evolution of our City.

The Workable Program requires clear evidence that the community provides and continues to expand, opportunities for citizens, especially those who are poor and members of minority groups, to participate in all phases of the related HUD-assisted renewal and housing pro- grams.

  • Text: May 12, 1969 MEMORANDUM TO: Henry L. Bowden, City Attorney James B. Henderson, Special Associate City Attorney IN RE: Mrs. E. S. Hope, Mrs. Millie Walker, Mrs. Vernie J. Jacobs, Complainants -- Department of Planning Reference is made to a mimeograph-type letter dated April 16, 1969 from complainants, a copy of which was directed to the Mayor and to Alderman Griggs. In accordance with the Mayor's referral of this matter to Mr. Gladin and the request of Alderman Griggs, an investi- gation of the matter was conducted with the following results. I conferred with Mr. Collier B. Gladin, Director, and Mr. Thompson H. Shuttleworth, Zoning Administrator, both of the Planning Depart- ment, relative to this matter and they furnished the following in- formation. A zoning petition was filed April 25, 1968 by Lewis Cenker for re- zoning of property on Brownlee Road. The first public hearing in the matter was set for June 6, 1968 before the Zoning Committee, at which time the matter was deferred for revised site plans by the petitioner. The deferment was until November 7, 1968. Subsequently the petition was denied by the Board of Aldermen on November 18, 1968, as the plans were not available. The matter was again initiated by the Zoning Com- mittee on December 31, 1968, after the petitioner's attorney indicated he would have the plans ready and a public hearing was scheduled for February 6, 1969. The case, more specifically described as Zoning Case No. Z-68-225-C, was postponed on February 6, 1969 by the Aldermanic Zoning Committee at the request of the community and the developer to provide an oppor- tunity for discussion of the issue. The petition was to be deferred for a period of 60 days and it was announced that the public hearing would be held on April 10, 1969. A meeting between community residents and the developer was scheduled to be held in the Planning Department office on Monday, March 31, 1969, however, this meeting was cancelled as the City Hall was closed in tribute to the late President Eisenhower. The Planning Department staff did not bring the case before the Zoning Committee on April 10th, since the March 3lst meeting had been can- celled. However, when area residents appeared at the hearing on April 10th, Mr. Shuttleworth had the case file brought from the Planning Department to the Aldermanic Chamber. Mr. Shuttleworth advised that through an error on his part, the case was not actually scheduled for hearing on April 10th. In the course of the meeting on April 10th, area residents were offered several options in considering the case. The Committee offered to hear from the residents at that time and the developer at a later time, or, second, to hear from residents and the developer at a later mutually agreeable time. Neither option appeared agreeable to community resi- dents. They were, however, permitted to speak in opposition to the petition and were assured another opportunity to speak when the developer came to present his case. Page Two Mr. Gladin and Mr. Shuttleworth expressed regret for any inconvenience they may have caused community residents in this misunderstanding over the hearing date for the zoning petition. They are strongly of the opinion, however, that members of the planning staff have made every possible effort to work with the community in discussing the issues in this case and will continue to do so. As a matter of information, the Atlanta-Fulton County Joint Planning Board has recommended approval of this zoning petition. The Planning Department staff also recommends approval in that the proposed use conforms with the Atlanta Land Use Plan, which has been adopted by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. Also of possible interest, it was reported that Mr. Cenker, the peti- tioner in this matter, has agreed to hold in abeyance any further action in this matter pending a Georgia Tech Land Use Study. As a result of prior telephonic arrangements with Mrs. Jacobs, she and Mrs. Walker appeared at my office to discuss this matter on the morning of May 8, 1969. They explained that Mrs. Hope had planned to be present but was unable to keep the appointment. It was their opinion that Mrs. Hope would have no information of value in addition to that information in their possession. At my request, Mr. Henry M. Murff, of the Law Department, attended this conference. After lengthy discussion of the case at hand, the law as applied to zoning and the administrative handling of zoning matters were ex- plained in detail to Mrs. Jacobs and Mrs. Walker. Page Three The handling of the case at hand by the Planning Department and committees involved also was explained in detail to these ladies. The contents of referenced letter of April 16, 1969 were reviewed with the ladies, at which time they stated they had no information whatso- ever which would indicate any wrongdoing on the part of any employee, official or elected representative of the City of Atlanta. Mrs. Jacobs and Mrs. Walker were more specifically questioned in regard to Paragraph 16 of referenced letter "16. Are persons desiring favorable rulings on rezoning petitions required to pay a fee under the table and off the record to elected officials or paid City Hall staffers?" Mrs. Jacobs and Mrs. Walker advise they have no information to sub- stantiate any possible inference of wrongdoing in the above quoted paragraph. In view of the above information, it would appear that no further action is warranted at this time. Page Four
