All city services to the area are available, or can be provided upon req uest (letters to this effe ct from the appropriate city departments are included in the report) . In answer to que stioning by Mr. Summer~, Mr. Watkins stated the owners wish to come into the c ity for the services that are ava il ab le and to make their land more marketable for housing and sa le of apmtments. !l. c::i-< , . ., "'-::: 1:!. ...

I 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 at that time. Mr. Eugene Anderson, part-owner of the tract which would become appeared speaking for himself and Mrs. Schneider, also part-owner, be willing to have their property annexed; that, however, he could for Mr. Steinmetz, another owner, but Mr. Steinmetz had told him to be annexed. landlocked, stating they would not officially speak he would be willing 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 fel I_ 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. 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 Le gislation and app licabl e city ordinances was presented to ea ch committee member pre sent and the staff recommended approva l . The property li es in Land Lot 177 of the 17th District and is approximately 2 acres in si z e. Mr. G ladi n stated the property is presently zoned R- 1 (Reside ntial) a nd would be annexed as R-1; that all services are available, or can be provided upon request (lettersto this e ffect are a part of the report). (- ,, Mr. Li vaditis was present a long with his representative, Robert Smith . Mr . Smith acknowledged the y were aware of the fact there a re no existing sewers to the property and . the present plans are to use two septic tanks, but the y are hopeful of working out an easement agreement with the adjoi ning property owner to connect with an outfall �Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page Three sewer 150 feet from Mr. Livaditis 1 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 there is a charge to tap onto the water fo r 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 De partment indicated that if this committee approves the annexation peti t ion 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 refe rred to Executive Session, and upon unanimous vote, this petition was approved by the committee. 2. STATUS OF RECERTIFICATION OF WORKABLE PROGRAM Pie rce Mahon y explaine d tha t the Planning staff is progressing rapidly toward completion of work fo r recerti fi ca t ion of the Wo rka ble Prog ram for a two- ye a r period, ra t he r than one ye a r which has been approve d in the past . He stated the re have bee n considerable revisi ons in the req uire me nts of the p rog ram fo r recert ification, mak ing it much more diffic ul t to pu t toge ther a nd committi ng us to a much more sol id app roach . He comme nted brie fl y on some o f the new aspe c ts of the progra m, such a s the housing and re loca ti on element and the departme nt's antici pa ted part icipa tio n in the HUD 701 p la nning p rog ra m. He explained a federa l requireme nt fo r particip ati o n in the 701 progra m is that one portion of the p lanning studies be a housing study; further, the person ne l situation throughout the city , especia lly in the te ch nica l and p rofe ssiona l leve l', is getting' serious and the Planning Department ho pe s to so lve some o f its prob lem s by hiring tempo rary personnel on 701 planning programs w ho coul d move into permanent planning vacancies as they occu r. He went on to say these new requirements, particularly housing planning fo r low and moderate income families, points up the critical need for the Urban Information System �c. 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 II and stated the city wi II 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 sta ted, however, a lot of !re 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". C·. .• 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 state d this doesn't concur with figures he obtained from the Planning Department. Mr. Gladin explained the staff analysis referre d to was done about a ye ar ago and at that time the zoning approvals were running about 80-90%; that the staff is in the process of p reparing an up-to- date analysis o{ the housing program . Mr. Cook ds ked for and was furnished with a copy of Mr. Jones' late st housing report. Afte r a cu rsory examination, Mr . Cook expressed conce rn ab out the disc repancy in fi g ures contai ned in the repo rt and those sta ted ora lly by Colone l J ones. Being a me mbe r of the Zoning Committee, he state d he was tired of charges being made that the ci ty's housing goa ls we re not be ing me t because of rez oning de nial s as he did not be li e ve this to be the case, a nd he finds it very confusing and frustating to be unable to justify his positi on whe n he is unabl e to secure re li ab le statis tics; that he would Iike statisti cs differen ti a ting wha t pe rce ntage of the 8,000 uni ts quoted by Colone l J ones is ac tually low and moderate income housi ng . Mr. Kennedy stated he ha d ve ry strong rese rvations that this perce ntage was q uite low , that as stated by Mr. G ladi n , the Plann ing staff is in the process of ana lyz ing the Housing Program for the la st two and one- ha lf years a nd he fe lt this report would produce the type statistics Mr. Cook is looking for. C. �( _ 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: l. 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 15 report and oral figures by Colonel Jones, it would appear we a re moving backwards and this prompted Mr. Flanigen to remark he had no doubt but what the program is "slipping". _p.?) ~ it: it 1to.~1 ' w if) ~ w n. With additi anal 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 Commi t te e membe rs who are present ly spending an inord inate amount of time doing su rveys and research in the field of housing . He stated the logical place for such a housing function would be in the Planning Depa rtment, particularly in light of the 701 planning p rogram; that the staff would like the committe e's support; and he prese nted a le tter for Mr. Cook 's signa tu re as Chai rman of the Planning and De ve lopmen t Commi ttee supporting the department's position . Colone l Jo ne s sta ted tha t the Legal Panel has been studying this matter, but the y have no t subm itted a posi tion report to Mr . Ale xander a nd he does not kn ow what type of report w il I be subm it te d if and whe n it is, and he felt any action by t his committee on this matter would be pre mature a t t his ti me . ~ ~ ~ Q:: 0 0 c·-~ C!) M r. Gladin stated the letter does not request an y fina l a ction; tha t it mere ly makes a recommendation for the Ho using Re sou rces Committee t o consider in making their recommendation. Colonel Jones stated he sti II felt the letter was in anticipation of something and prematu re. �Minutes Planning and Development Committee July 18, 1969 - Page · Six Mr. Mahony commented that the Planning Deportment fee Is very strong Iy 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 I, 1969; it will then be forwarded to the ne x t 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. *** *** ** 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 COMM!

  • Text: ATTITUDE SURVEY OF THE P-ESIDENTS OF LIGHTNING City of Atlanta Dep artment 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 Lightn ing know that the City of Atlanta is concerned 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, bl a ci: end wh it e , ~e r e us e t o cond uc t t .c su . cy : One City Pla nning Department employee, two City Planning Department int erns, 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 Re sult s 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 certt (80%) of the homeowners stated that they could not afford to pay more for housing. �- 2 - 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-two7 years. The attitudinal results of the survey show the following major findings: 1. The majority of interviewees (85%) like living in Lightning. However, of the ninety-eight respondents saying whether they would like c o live elsewhere (See question 12), fifty-three per cent (53%) answered affirmatively, with the remaining fortyseven per cent (47%) preferring to remain in Lightning. 2. Ninety-one out of the 105 interviewees feel like they are members of the Lightning community and belong with the people there. 3. Housing was the most frequently-mentioned problem in Lightning, with fifty-two per cent (52%) of the respondents listing it. (See question 13).

  • Text: 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: THE KENTUCKY YOUTH CONFERENCE The Kentucky Youth Conference was begun in 1967 by former Attorney General Robert Matthews to seek among the young people of Kentucky the leadership necessary to curb Kentucky's juvenile delinquency problem . In 1966 Kentucky got, for the first time, a roughly accurate look at its juvenile delinquency problem. In that year, the Attorney General's Office, in cooperation with the Department of Child Welfare, developed a voluntary and uniform juvenile offense reporting system . They found the over-all picture bleak, showing little end in sight to the rising tide of juvenile crime in the state of Kentucky. The Kentucky Youth Conference was designed to do something about this problem. It is based on the theory that y oung people, if given the opportunity, can themselves develop solutions to the problem of juvenile delinquency; that their energy, insight, and imagination cannot be overlooked; and that they should seize the l eadership in dealing with this problem. These concepts of the Conference became a reality in August of 1967 and again in August of 1968 when more than 800 high school age people from a ll parts of Kentucky gathered at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond to ask themselves what they could do about juvenile crime in their local communities. Their discussions, s timulated by exce llent speakers, programs , and the most comprehensive data on juvenile crime available , sparked many ideas for local projects . Youth Conference delegates have organized a teen jury in Henderson; a three - county Central T een Council in northern Kentucky involving county judges and police judges ; a youth employm e nt servic e in Versailles which, in its first year of operation, found jobs for s ome e ighty young people in the area; a nd a Boyd County program which has involved pre-teen children of indigent parents in the area in picnics and horseback riding . Many such programs throughout the Commonwe alth have met with such great success , unprece d e nted c ommunity interes t a nd widespread s upport tha t the annual Conferen ce will now remain a perm a n e nt ins titution in Ke ntucky. l �Delegates to the Conference have been sponsored in the past by more than twenty thousand Kentuckians representing corporations, labor unions, civic clubs, schools, and church organizations. These groups, along with various other foundations and youth organizations interested in the development of Kentucky youth and the prevention of juvenile delinquency, lend financial support to the Conference efforts. The Kentucky Youth Conference is now sponsored by the privately financed, non-profit Kentucky Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Youth Development Foundation of Louisville, Kentucky and has begun a Sustaining Member Program intended to broaden its financial base, while giving Kentuckians a chance to participate in its efforts in an important and essential way. Throughout the entire state businesses, organizations and individuals recognize and support the tremendous potential of the Kentucky Youth Conference, and of Kentucky young people, to mobilize the resources of the state in effective combat against juvenile delinquency and to explore new areas of constructive citizenship for the young.

The Youth Council, at its September meeting, decided that the Drug Education Project in the 14th Street area was an item which required further study by the Council and the Interagency Committee on Alcohol and Drugs before it could commit wholeheartedly to it. As you know, Lewis Dinkins has been trying to find some space in that community for housing a clinic sta rted last summer, a nd to date, has been unable to do so. We will certainly continue these efforts. Also, Lewis contacted Fulton County Health Department in efforts to ascertain resources which they had a vailable for drug educa tion and found tha t they were not substantial, to s ay the least . _After considerable discussion, the Youth Council Boa rd decided that any drug educ a tion a ctivity should be , a t present, under the juris diction of the Interagency Committee on Alcohol and Drugs which was c r eated in cooper ation with your organization . AN AGENCY OF THE CITY OF ATLANTA �-2- Because of its broader scope, the Interagancy Cormnittee, should consider how such an education project could be handled. For example: 1. What sources should be used for statements about drugs? 2. Which authorities should be considered correct? 3. Can statements be made? When · these preliminary decisions and guidelines are set by the Interagency Cormnittee, the Youth Council will be in a better position to set a course pf effective coordinati6n and action for these youth.

Summary �GENERAL INTRODUCTION In 1968, The City of Atlanta, Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., The Community Chest and several other private and public agencies and organizations sponsored a Youth Opportunity Program. More than 65 agencies and •rganizations participated in this program (See Attachment 1). The overall objectives cf the Youth Opportunity Program are to provide needed services to the poor, unemployed, socially retarded, culturally deprived and academically delinquent youth in the Metropolitan Atlanta Area. The majer efforts of the Youth Opportunity Program are aimed at eliminating these conditinns. Through the outstanding efforts and accomplishments of EOA, The City of Atlanta, The FEB, The Community Chest and several other agencies and organizations, the 1968 YOP yie lded the foll owing: 1. 14,990 youth attended sunnner school; 2. 3,000 youth received special remedial aid; 3. 1,400 youth received special tutorial help ; 4. 2,500 youth were contacted and urged to return to school ; 5. 1,500 youth participated in enrichment programs ; 6. 5,000 youth participated in Fine Arts prcgrams and activities ; 7. 525,000 youth par ticipated in Recreational Programs ; 8. 1,100 federa l employees volunteered to hel p in the YOP; 9. 20,000 youth participated in camping activities ; 10. Private businesses donated $237,000 in cash, equipment or services to the YOP. Although the 1968 YOP wa s a general succe ss, some gaps and omissions did oc cur. These were identifie d as follows : �-21. Recreation activities for youth ages 16-21 were virtually non-existent; 2. Ge nerally, no programs operated on week-ends; 3. Several agencies and organizations did not fulfill their employment commitments for poor youth; 4. Coordination and communication between some agencies were generally lacking; 5. The location of programs was widespread. However, areas such :1s Capitol Homes, Blair Village, Hentown, StewartLakewood, Cabbagetown, Mill Village, Knight Park, Adamsville, Mechanicsville, Peopletown, Joyland, Blue Heaven, Bush Mountain and Bass received little or no program input; 6. Resident camping opportunities for poor youth were woefully lacking ; 7. The more attractive and de sirable special eve nts resources were not enough to meet the need; 8. Tr ansportation remained a serious and difficult problem to deal with. The s e we r e the major problems which occurre d during the 1968 YOP. �PL..:\NNING 1969 In December, 1968, Vice President Hubert llumphrey sent a telegram to Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. i :::.r:!ic c. tin:: that federal funds will be provided to the City of Atlanta for YOP Planning. Mayor Allen promptly designated the Youth Council as the agency responsible for coordination of the Metropolitan Youth Opportunity Program. In addition, Mayor /,llen appointed Mr. Clarence Elsas, Chairman of the 1969 Youth Opportunity Program. t,_ chart of the Metropolitan Youth Opportunity Council is attached. The major agencies involved in the 1969 YOP Planning are EOL., The City of Atlanta , The Community Chest, The Feder al Executive Board, The Georgia State Employment Servoce, The Na tional Alliance of Bus i nessmen, The Atlanta f.rt s hlliance, Fulton County Government, DeKa lb County Government, The Community Chest Agencies , WAOK Radio Sta t ion , WSB Radio Station, The Georgia Arts Commiss i on, The DeKalb County He a lth Department, The Chr i stian Council , Li ller, Battle, Nea l and Lindsey, The Chamber of Commer ce, The Junior Chamber of Comr.1erce, The Atlanta Pol i ce Department , Mor ehouse Co llege, The nt l ant a Ur ban League , Emor y University , Atlanta Unive rsi t y , The At lant a Youth Congre ss , The Of f i ce of Government a l Lai son, The Metr opolitan Cornniss i ou on Crime and Delinquency , The At l anta Chi l dren and Youth Service s Couns il. A Technica l Executive Committee was created to assist and direct the overall Youth Opportunity Program Pl anning. Major decisions made by the Technical Executive Committee are as follows: 1. That the Atlanta Pub l ic Schools will concentrate on educational programs, and not be responsible for operating special recreational programs; �-!,..- 2. Tho.t the /1.tlanta Public Schools will make their facilities available to any group wishing to utilize them provided such group assurae full responsibility for custodial and administrative costs; 3. That the Public Schools will indicate in early spring, those schools where summer programs will be located; ~-. That the Parks and Recreation Department will indicate in early spring where surmner programs will be located; 5. That the Parks and Recreation Department will submit a listing of desirable school facilities which they might utilize; 6. That EOf, provide a listing of locations and programs which comm rmmity residents indicate are more desirable; 7. That the Chest agencies provide the Technical Executive Cornmittee with a listinr; of programs which will be operai::ed with summer funds, as well as, a listing of summer prograras and locations which will be operated on their regular budget; 8. That the Georgia State Employment Service be respons i ble for most YOP employment screening, processing and recruitment; 9. That the Georgia State Employment Service locate the Summer Youth Opportunity Center by Harch 15. (136 Marietta Street) Planning fo r the 1969 YOP centers around the implementation of t he above recommendations in addition to regular and ongoing activi ties. In late 1968, EO~ be ga n holding planning meetings i n al l of the ECA neighborhood service centers. At these meetings, residents and youth of the EOn service ar eas made valuable suggestions concerning the types, locations , and hours of operation of summer pro gr ams i n the i r neighborhoods. The suggestions of ne ighbor hood re s i dents provided a va l uab le guide f or YOP planning . These mee t i ngs we r e planne d and implemented by Mr. Duke Harris on, Recreation Coordinator, EO~ . Based on the recommendations abov e, a s wel l as sug8es tions by residents and youth, the Executive Technica l Committee set the following priorities: �-51. Employment a. b. 2.

In order to prevent the scarcity of camping opportunities for poor youth from reoccuring in 1969, a Camping Sub-Committee was created in January, 1969 to deal with the problem of resident camping opportunities and cnmperships for poor youth. The camping sub-committee has sent camping questionnaires to all groups which operate resident and/or day camps. The purpose of the question- naire is to find out how agencies utilize their camps and camperships to benefit poor youth. Several of the agencies have indicated that they will provide camping opportunities for poor youth.
