IN REPLY REFER To:

Code 3RF
Mr. George L. Aldridge, Jr.
Director
Community Improvement Program
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Mr. Aldridge:

Subject: Project No. Ga. R-97(CRP)
Community Renewal Program
Approval of Housing Costs Study

The Housing Costs Study for the Atlanta Community Improvement Program
has been reviewed and found to be satisfactory.

It is recommended that the Model Cities Agency be advised of the
following:

a. To consider the recommendations and conclusions contained in

the Housing Costs Study in planning relocation resources, especially
as they concern housing preferences, timing of development of
resources, treatment of particular neighborhoods or sub-areas, the
style and cost of housing and full utilization of HUD-assisted
housing programs.

b. To coordinate the Study recommendations with proposed NDP activities
within the Model Cities Area.

ec. To include in the Relocation Program for the Model Cities Area
the matters included in paragraph a above, in addition to reviewing
estimates of displacement found in the Study.

d. Relative to housing resources proposed for relocation of residents
in or from the Model Cities Area, displacement should not exceed the
supply of new housing which can be assured of development within the
same displacement period. In view of the experimental nature of the
Model Cities effort and the recommendations in the Study to use all
possible methods and programs to keep housing prices low, it may be
necessary and desirable to show resources on a year-to-year basis
with first year displacement limited to the resource supply for that
year, allowing the time for development of innovative housing programs
and in attaining necessary sponsorship on an open-ended basis. This
would require assurance that displacement and resource supply will be
reviewed annually with amended Relocation Programs provided to HUD
for concurrence before displacement occurs.

Sincerely yours,
