EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant MRS. ANN M. MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison The idea of management seminars for the concerned businessmen (or those affected by relocation) in these areas is an important idea. However, in light of the language of the people, I think it may be still too "highbrow 11 • It needs to be thoroughly oriented to the average businessmen in the area. It is folly to try to assume .t;:f,.:'i~! market potential or training for most of these businesses. Seminar classes should focus on business practice s such as bookkeeping and development of the neighborhood market. I would also sta t e that b esid es s imple busine ss skills , the definite stressing of awareness of agencies that can h e lp in the relocation and new facilities expenses. These agencies, public or private, should be more than advice givers . I believe that these businesses cannot survive the relocation move if not given financial help for they are pretty close to marginal status now. Concerning relocation -- relocation should be made as closely as possible and retransition should be made as quickly as possible so that to preclude the loss -of each business' narrow market. AU center should also keep an ongoing, free advisory agency for helping these people and Ehould encourage "rehabilitated" businessmen to help and contribute with their views and opinions. In summary, I think the project is useful for some redirection toward a short term approach to keeping these exi sting small er busine sses alive.

D EPARTM ENT O F COMMERCE �ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ATLANTA - MODEL CITIES PROGRAM The Regional Economic Development and Business Serwce.1Center Atlanta University The objective of this report is to provide Atlanta I s Model Cities officials with a working tool to assist in the planning for Economic Development activities in the Model Neighborhood Program Area. Rather than wait until the Center's work on this subject is complete, we have prepared a preliminary description of two ite ms : One is the various problems and conditions affecting the lives of business people in this area. this area. The other is the reactions of these business people in To what they feel, rightly or wrongly, are the conditions under which they live. A full understanding and empathy with what they face and what they feel is a prerequiste to improving current socio-economic resource and developing new ones. It is also neces - sary in order to plan effective for economic development in the area. The style of thi preliminary report, therefore, was deliberately chosen to communicate this under tanding. In order to facill t the use of socio-economic information use in other studies conducted by the Center at the same time , it was necessary to anticip te our final results. analy i This has been done through an of all our vailable local data and where necessary, an inter .. polation of thia data baaed on the results of re earch conducted elsewhere. �z The local data has been developed from three major sources. First, we held nearly fifty individual interviews with businessmen ope rating a business in the program area. During these interviews, the problems. attitudes, and reactions to exis ting services and conditions were investigated. The second source of data was developed through using graduate students attached to the Center's staff who spent a total of about sixteen (16) weeks primarily in the five different neighborhoods (one or two blocks in size ). Their work involved the use of informal and unstructured interviewing techniques as well as simply continous observation of day-to-day movements. This se c orld a p proach provided us with much more depth of understanding than could be obtained through more typical survey techniques. The third source of data is the available local stitistics on income, employment, family characteristics, health, and other factors. Most of the local data that we have thus far collected is from the program area. This area of approximately 3, 000 acres containing slightly less than 50, 000 residents is bound by the East Expre sway on the north, the Central of Georgia Railroad on the west, Atlanta and West Point Railroad on the south and east. The six communities of Grant Park, Summerhill, Mechanicsville, People town, Pittsburgh, and Adair Park compose the target area . Some of our investigations, howeve r, have been conducted in other areas of Atlanta. On the baeia of thb comparative information, we feel that, while there are �3 differences among different areas , most of the preliminary conclusions in this report are applicable to other low income areas of Atlanta. In the overall view of needs and assigning priorities to these needs, it is immediately evident that these represent problems of substantial magnitude for the marginal and sub-marginal businesses in the Model Cities Area. The provisions of the Model Cities Program, theoretically, created an ideal situation for the small entrepreneur in a relocation situation. At first glance, it would i\ppear that, by and large, these persons would be anxious to relocate in modern, well planned facilities; as opposed to the dilapidated, dingy and antiquated structures in which they presently operate. We have had an opportunity to converse with many of these businessmen, white and black, within the inner city, and the reaction has been less than pleasant anticipation. Many realize that their problem' is that of selective or captive patronage. This is coupled with the lack of managerial capacity to appeal to a tot 1 market. If they are required to move to a new location then they will for all practical puJr.poses, lose their patronage. Many further feel that if they are eventually moved back to th ir present location , they feel that the financial requirement necessary to acquire modern furnishings and fixtures would be prohibitive. Mo t �4 persons who have operated for some period of time are of the opinion that they would not be able to be more than marginal operators. The reasons given are age, financial resources , and lack of academic training . Attention to a report submitted by a consultant for the Regional Economic Development and Business Se rvice Center, indie cates similar findings as a result of a study conducted in a similar area. At this point the Center recommends the assigning of top priority in these cases and make the development of managerial training course an integral part of the transition period. It is felt that such a program would contribute immensely to assisting these persons enhance their managerial skills, as well as demonstrating the advantages of appealing to a total market. Even con idering those who would return to present sites, it would do much in improving the ability to render service in his given area. This is presently lacking in most of the small, individual pro- prietorhsips in the area. This could be done through the Center conducting manage rial eminara on campu seminar sit s and/or in the various communities. could be conducted and attendance requirement made of the reloc tion subsidy which the e persons would receive a of the Model Cities relocation provisions. The part a part �5 These seminars would serve to assist in making many of these persons aware of the various government programs available in easing the adjustment of relocation. The foregoing recommendation would consist of programming the general managerial needs of these neighborhood enterprises. This would include choosing and improving sites , exposure to the various marketing techniques useful to small business , raising of capital, record-keeping and personnel management. Program should be de- signed to include the above items , but not limited thereto. Coordination of such a program could be implemented by the Cen ... ter. Personnel could be selected from the School of Business of Atlanta University, as well as the cooperating universities in the Atl anta area. This would make for a comprehensive program of Economic Developme nt and Technical Assistance . It should be empha .. sized that these programs and seminars · would be geared to the level of academic preparation brought to the seminar by these entrepreneurs of the communities in question. This would be in oppostition to many pro- grams heretofore developed which would not lend themselves to meaningful participation by such persons due to limited academic or comm rcial preparation. It would be further recommended that the Center would use contact resources to encourage on-going industries to locat in these reas. would be well to empha ize that such indu tries would initially install lt �6 their own management personne l with efforts made to train and promote local personnel to these position in phases . The Center could initiate progra ms which would fa cilit ate the u p -. grading of t he l ocal pers onnel in the direction of fi r st ...line management . There could be further efforts , e nga ging t he s ou r c es of the C ent er, to seek out and determi ne the feasi bilit y of the expansi on a n d / or c r e a t i on of service industry enterprises t hat indicate a p o ssibility of succes s operat ing or based in these a r eas , but again, not limit ed to the respe ctive communities . There is an imme d iate need for the foregoing provisions . There could be immense benefits derived fr om such an undertaking , and i t is felt that from these a meaningful program of Economic Development could be designed for these communit ies wit h long - term implications . �October 10, 1969 Attorney James B.

REPORT OF THE MASS CONVENTION STEERING COMMITTEE In the absence of Deacon Peters, the Chairman asked other members of the Steering Committee if they wanted ta:,make a report. Mr. Whi tiey then stated that he wanted to call t o the a t tention of the Board that there is a lot of unrest in the Steering Committee and that he thinks it would be a good idea for the Review Committee to review all the action taken by the Steering committee. Mr. Hood explained that some discrepancies have occured in the Steering Committee and attributed these discrepancies to the failure of the Steering Committee to hire an Executive Director of Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc., to take care of some of the duties that Deacon Peters has had to perform as chairman of the Steering Committee. He said that as soon �~ as an Executive Director is . hired, the business of the Steering Committee and the Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc., will run smoothly. Tbe Mayor then said that the did not think _i t will be necessary to do any checking into the Steering Committee at this time. Mr. Newberry pointed out that some of the S~~ering Committee mem- bers think that the Steering Committee should see and check all contracts before the Executive Board passes on them. Mr. Millican stated that the Steering Committee could recieve a list of contracts passed , but that they should not be~given a copy of the actual contracts. Mr. Johnson pointed out that all membe~s of the Steering Committee had received a copy of the Project Descriptions and that this information should be filtered down. Mr. Hood agreed that the Steering Committee should go through the .~ oject Descriptions and raise any questions thatt they might have as a result of the review in their meeti~gs.

Atlanta, Georgia 30303 u Dear Mayor Allen: · We, the members of a special committee of the Executive Board of the Model Cities Program, in an attempt to satisfactorily resolve the Model Neighborhood, Incorporated contract, wish to make the followin g report: The committee met on Tuesday, August 11, 1969, innnediately following the meeting of the Executive Board. We reviewed the correspondence between Model Neighborhood, Incorporated and your office. We concluded that two areas of concern in regard to the proposed contract are: 1. Adequate staffing, and 2. A Board of Directors of Model Ne i ghborhood Incorporated that is fully capable of exe cutin g the contract successfully. We believe, a letter to you dated August 5 , 1969, from Mr. Joe Stalling, Chairman of the Board of Model Neighb orhood, Incorporated, proposes a staffing pattern which can assure the satisfactory administration of the contract. In regard to strengthening the Board of Directors of Model Neighborhood, Incorporated, your special committee met with that Board in session on Tuesday afternoon, August 11, 1969. During this meeting, the following persons were approved as additional Board Members pending acceptance: Mr. Herman Russe ll, Mr. James Johns on, Mr. Ira Jackson , Rev. D. D. Dunbar and Mr. Samuel Mills . As signments were made to contact these persons t o secure their agreement to serve. I h ave reques ted the Chairman of the Board of Model Cities, Incorporated to furnish the special connnittee the reconstituted list of members of the Board of Dire ctors as soon as it is feasible. the basis of these developments, the special committee is requesting tha t the Executive Board of Model Cities, Incorporated be reconvened on On President Treasurer Board of T rustees J AMES A.

Johnson Executive Director Model Neighborhood Program 565 Hill Street, S.E . Atlanta, Georgia 30312 Dear Johnny: This note follows our phone conversation of Monday, August 12th in which I suggested that the Model Neighborhood Program a pp ropriate $6,000 to Model Neighborhood, Inc. and withhold $6,000 for Model Neighborhood, Inc. and o ther con tingencies. I recommend that the $6,000 appropriation be made at the earliest possible date so that Model Neighborhood, Inc. may continue to tie up the land while finding tenants for the shopping center. Our conversations with Scott Rutherford of EDA have led us to the following points: 1. If the city provides Model Neighborhood, Inc. (MN I) with an appropriation, such action will indicate to EDA that . the City approves of what MNI is attempting to do and how they are doing it; 2. The appropriation would then allow EDA to deal direct ly with MNI for additional and future funding; 3. Such additional or f uture funding from EDA would allow MNI to .1 hire a full-time pl a nner to get on wi t h the work of finding .tenants and allocating space and �Mr. Johnny C. Johnson August 13, 1968 Page 2 costs; .2 provide a sense of organization to MN I; .3 and allow for future program and/or project planning. Braun Cleveland of Eric Hill Associates and I plan to put toge t her a formal app lication to EDA in the near future. The application would incorp orate the Model Neighborhood Program's appropriation into MN I's overall program. Your immediate attention to this matter would be gratefully appreciated. With best wishes, Yours truly, Thoma s K. Corish Research Associate . TKC/rp cc: Mr. Dan Sweat �

His main objective in coming to Atlanta was to inv estigate Model Neighborhood, Inc. to see if there was any way that E oD.A. could be of assistance. In doing this he checked with me and the rest of the "team" to see what we were doing with Moody's project. Upon learning that we hadn't done anything about it other than to keep it under a watchful eye, he asked if we had offe red our services .

MEMBERS EZZARD August 5,1969 Mayor Ivan Allen, Chairman Model Cities Executive Board City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: In a Model Cities Steering Committee meeting on July 31, 1969, a motion was carried to approve the Model Neighborhood, Inc. economic development program, pending written communications of information conveyed by a consultant at the meeting on the following two concerns; (1) expansion of MNI Board and (2) MNI Directorship. The following action was taken at a special Board meeting on July 30, 1969 of Model Neighborhood Inc. (1) MNI Board agreed to expand its Board to include more members with the stipulation that they be residents of the Model Cities area. Although the Board agrees in principle that the addition of professional businessmen on their Board would benefit the corporation, it disagreed with adding, specifically (5) "Black" businessmen because of the racial overtones of such an action . The Board also felt that sophisticated "out-side" business interest ( on the Board) would not enhance the basic concept of self- help . The Board however , did agree that the Advisory Board would meet monthly in o rder to review the program progress and financial e x penditures . This action was agreed �Mayor Ivan Allen August 5, 1969 . to by the Advisory Board. At an earlier Board meeting, there was re-election of officers. Mr. Joe Stallings was elected chairman and Rev. Joel Marshall vice-chairman. The Board also ruled that no member of the staff could hold a position on the Board. All staff members have resigned from the Board. (2) The Board hired Mr. Samuel Cochran as Executive Director. Mr. Moody,to benefit the corporation, agreed to work in a line position. He is to receive a contract with specific duties as outlined in a scope of services. The Model Cities Steering Committee voted to approve MNI's program upon receiving the above information in , writing. The committee instructed MNI to forward this information on to the Executive Board via letter for your consideration. cc Executive Board Steering Committee J. Johnson J. Culp J. Hicks R. Lyle D.
