ALEXANDER, Chairman Housing Resources Committee MALCOLM D. JONES Housing Coord inator MEMORANDUM TO: Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr . Chief Administrative Officer Ple ase see attached copy (Encl. 1) of letter to Planning Director , dated September 25, 1969, (which is self explanatory) requesting assistance in providing material for inclusion in next revision of the Status Report on Atlanta's Low and Moderate Incom e Housing program. Also see attached copy of reply from the Planning Director , dated October 9, 1969 , (Encl. 2). Note that the reply from the Planning Director proposes certain studies related to housing to be initiated by the Planning D epartment. The desirability of these studies is not questioned. However he calls upon me for assistance in preparation of the studies, but does not agree to provide any of the information requested for the Housing Resources Committee for updating the Low and Moderate Income Housing Status Report. About two years ago, when I first requested a Statistical Clerk to keep up the Housing Status Report, I was inform ed by the Administrative Assistant that a new position of Planner for housing had just been authorized the Planning Department and that therefore the Housing Resourc e s Committee should obtain any needed research and statistical data from the Planajng Department. Consequently, I called upon the Planning D epartment then for similar information to that again requested in the attached letter (two years later) . As yet none of the information requested has been provided . I do not consider this deliberate , or unwillingness to cooperate, but rather a natu ral consequence of another Department being so overworked and preoccupied with numerous details on too many matters, to provide attention and detailed information to another office , for which that Department is not directly responsible. I predict that the situation will not improve materially . �I Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. October 31 , 1969 Page Two The information requested for HRC is essential to meaningful revisions of the Housing Status Report. In order for the City and its officials to have any concept of progress being made in the Low and Moderate Income Housing program , it is essential tha t a Housing Sta tus report be maintained a nd constantly r e vised by someone. N o office in the City, othe r tha n the Housing Resour ce s Committee, currently h a s this information. On the other hand, it is physically impossible for me (alone) to obtain the information needed, affect the appropriate u pdating of the report a nd a t the sam e time a ccomplish other e ss e ntial coordina ting and administra tive duties for w hich I a m r es ponsible.

  • Text: MINUTES Housing Resources Committee September 4, 1969 .. I I The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee was held 3:00 - 5:00 P. M., Thursday, September 4, 1969, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. This meeting was devoted exclusively to responses by candidates for Mayor to questions posed by members of the HRC pertaining to the respective . candidates' position on housing. Invit_a tions to candidates were issued by the Public Relations Panel, HRC, which sponsored the meeting. The scheduling of time of appearance, advance press releases and letters of appreciation to candidates after their appearance were all handled by the Chairman, Public Relations Panel. Copies of these, together with invitational notice, to HRC members, Agenda, with time indicated for each Candidate (Encl. 1) and other related documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes. Chairman Cecil Alexander was out of town and could not a ttend the meeting, so Mr. Richard Harvey, Chairman of the Public Relations Panel conducted the meeting. Chairmen of the respective Panels prepared and sent questions to the Housing Resources Committee Office a week before the meeting in order that the questions could b e provided each Candidate in a dvance so that the Committee would receive more comprehensive answers. Those questions were mailed to the respective candidates on August 29, 1969. Copies of the questions are attached to these minutes (Encl. 2 ). Each Candidate was given 10 minutes to express his views on housing, and a 10 minute question and answer period. During the question and answer phase, the Chairmen of the respective Panels asked the Candidates questions pertaining to their particular Panel interests. All Candidates wer e present except Mrs. Linda J enness, who was out of town that day. Mr. John V atava represented Mrs. Jenness. Formal opening statements by candidates Jennes s and Mas sell were submitted to the HRC and are attached to the file copy only of the minutes of this meeting. ·, �Page Two Alderman Millican' s opening statement attempted answers to as many of the written questions prepared by the respective Panels, as time would permit. Alderman Cook and Mr. Tate spoke from notes only and submitted no prepared opening statements for the record. ~ Questions asked respective candidates were in general selected from lists previously submitted to them and notes were taken by Panel Chairmen on questions asked. Replies were so numerous and involved and stenographic assistance so limited as to preclude recording in the minutes of specific questions asked · and answers given. In general, however, all candidates with the exception of Mrs. Jenness (represented by spokesman) appeared to be sympathetic with the low and moderate income housing program and offered to assist where practicable. From this standpoint, it is apparent that the meeting was beneficial and worthwhile. Newspaper comment on the meeting is attached to the file copy of the minutes. The meeting was adjourned at 5: 00 P. M. Respectfully submitted, ~d ~ .i2-<--<..nl--<.C.,. Malcolm D . .~ s Housing Coordinator me Encls: Agenda Questions by Respective Panels ·.·, ~ �

Invitational notice, list of those invited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy only of these minutes. The primary purpose of the mee ting was to consider a proposal made by William L. Moore for rezoning of a tract of land in Land Lot 30, 14 th Distric t (FF) (annexed to t he Cit y of Atlanta, December 1, 1968) for 700 units of cooperative Townhouses and 200 units of rental apartments, all to be financed under FHA Section 221 d(3). Chairman Alexander called the meeting to order and announced that before he took up the main item on the Agenda (consideration of a particular zoning proposal), he wished to discuss briefly some other matters. He then read a proposed letter to be sent to Representative Julian Bond (copy attached to the file copy of these minutes) supporting in principle Bond's Bill on the suspension of rent (through payment into an escrow account) on dwell i ngs certified by the Building Department as unfit f or human habitation. Seven (7) exceptions (changes) however were suggested as result of a poll of the entire membership of the HRC, the wesults of whic h were 26-for, 3-f or with reservations and 2-against. T h e Cha irma n then referred t o a requirement f or the HRC to submit by March 15 i ts pla n for the 1969 Summer Program in cert~in c e ntral core areas of the Ci ty. In t his connection , the Chairman emphasized the need f or: 1. An overall rezoning of the City to provide for the City 's future development needs , to include a dequate areas for low and medium income housing ; and 2. Establishment of some emergency housing to prov ide liv i ng accomod ations for special cases which repeatedly occur. The Chairman recognized Roger F . Rupnow, Assistant Professor of City Planning at Georgia Tech , who explained briefly a project which a group of his students proposed to undert~ke during the Spring quarter commencing about Aprill on s study preparing a plan for future development for the Southwest area of Atlanta. The plan is to be submitted to the City as a recommendation for consideration by the City in developing a plan for this area. �I 2 The students' group proposes to work closely with the residents of this area and with the City of Atlanta as to their wishes on existing zoning an~ future development needs, to include low and moderate income housing in the area. ,, Mr. Gladin, City Planning Director, informed the Committee that a group of civic organizations in the area, known as Federation of Southwest Clubs has requested preparation of a plan for the future development o f the Gouthwest area and had essentially as k ed the Zoning Committee for a moritorium on zoning changes in the area until such a pl an could be developed. Mr . Gladin further stated that this is impractical and cannot be done; that the Land Use Pl~n for the City, adopted by the Board of Aldermen about a year ago, is intenCed to f orm a ba sis for more detailed studies which are contemplated, but not yet developed. / The Chairman said that he felt the HRC should cooperate with the citizens of the area f or development of such a plan. That development of such plan should definitely provide for a reasonable amount of low and medium income housing in the general area and that a time limit should be established for development o f such a plan . ,· / A motion was then made by Mr . Archer Smith, and seconded by Mr. Bob Winn that the HRC go on record as being in full support of the following Resolution: " IBE XT RESOLVED, that the need for low-income housing b e given foremost consideration by the Fede ra tion of Southwest Clubs in its deliberations and studies as to the best use of zoning of the Southwest Atlanta land and further that a timeta ble b e established f or the compl etion of the plan . Further that the HRC offers its full as sist ance to the Federation of Southwest Clubs in preparati on o f its plan ." After brief discussion, the Res o lution was ad opted withou t any dissenting voteGo The Ch3irman then introduced Mr . w. L. Moore , Developer, and Mr. Nicholas Berryman, Promote~ to present their proposal . These C3 Ct~Gn~ n together presented a proposal for rezoning a large tract of land on both sides of Kimberly Road, S.W. - LL 30, 14th District (FF) - which w2s annexed to the City last. f'n rr:,~o r ~ ·· The proposed development (copy of plat attached to file copy) consisted of 700 units of sales housing for which 90% of the units in any phase of the development must be pre-sold from pre-built samples before FHA commitment is approved for that phase; also 200 units of rental apartments; all 900 units under FHA 221 d(3); furthermore, development of 40-50 single-family houses on an adjacent tract to the north, which would not require rezoning. �3 A school site of 9t acres on the south side of the project has already been negotiated with t he School Board for construction of an elementary school to serve t he project and adjoining area. It was also pointed out that the School Board has plans for a high school just north of the project. It was also explained that the plan provides for only two ent r ances and exits off Kimberly Road to the Townhouse portion of the development, with no through traffic, but all on interior streets and that the complete development would be accomplished over a five-year period. It was pointed out t hat the prop osed development has been f avorably recommended b y t he At l ant a - Fulton County Joint Planning Board. Mr. Gl adin stated that the proposed l ocation apparently has or will have adequate communi ty facilities. The Chairman p ointed out that c urrently the HRC is seek ing new direction as to i ts future ro le a nd mission a n d that if the HRC should forma l l y endorse t h is pro ject now, whicb is in the s~me ge nera l a rea o f a some wha t s imi l ar prop osal which ~o a aloe ~t r o ngl y opposed by citizens of the area a nd de n ied by the Board of Al dermen a b out 3 weeks ago, that this might b e prema ture and which probably wou ld b e cons i dered as i n opposition t o o r in conflict with recent propos als for pre parat i on o f a pla n for development of the entire Southwest area a nd the r e fore might d o more harm t han good i n obta ining approval of propose d rezoning. The Chairman also point e d out that due to a previous commitment wh ic h ha, a s Vi ce-Cha i r ma n o f A. R. M. P.c., h nd made to the Federa t i o n of Sou thwest Clubs to s upport their r equ est fo r prepara tion o f an ove r a l l pla n f or t he are a , he f e l t that he should divorc e himself fr om t he iss ue a nd t ur ne d the meet ing over to Mr . ArcheT Smith , a member of t he Execut ive Commi t tee . Mr . Smith ruled tha t since o nl y 4 ou t o f 9 members o f the Execu t ive Committee were actually present, ( a fif t h ha d attended the meeting earlie r , but had left ), that a quo rum did no t exist and that therefore action coald not be ta ken either for or agains t the proposal . In response to q ueries from several members o f t he Committee as to certain neGded chanees in organization and new direction for future ac tion and emphasis by the Committee , the Chairman ~dvised that such is being considered but as yet he was not in position to do anything definite in this respect; that the Committee now has in the pipeline sufficient units to meet the r-mc 2-year goa l of 9 , 800 units and the 5-year goal of 16 , 800 units, except for Public Housing ; that it appears, for the t ime being, this is perhaps the only field in wh ich the Committee should work aggressively. Motion was made , seconded and after some discussion w~s adopted that the HRC invite the Mayor to meet with the Committee �4 / in a Special Meeting in the near future to discuss the current basic purp o se and future direction of the Committee . Mr . Watkins anno unced to the Committee that under FHA 221 d ( 3) or 236 that 20% · of the units in any development may c ome under Rent Supplement , thus pro viding for some variati o n in economic status of the occupants . Mr . Archer Smith made a motion which was seconded and carried that T . U. F . F . and representatives of the Housing Authority be invited to appear before the HRC to discuss their views , policies and concerns . In view of the fact that the ,dRC Exec u tive Committee did not have a quorum available for official transaction of business, no action was ta ken on the Resolution.

The Housing Authority has request d~ and the Building Departm nt has agreed , that requests for reloc tion b more specific tbatr they have b en in th past in order to provide better understanding as to by relocation is nooessary and detei'mination as to· when it should be accomplished. · r .

I m inclined to gr e with the Building_ Department in this respect, but have requeated the Building Depar·t ment in making its :requests to th~ Housing Au bority for r ·e location to be as specific as pr ctical . In general, relocation consists of two categories , i . e ., f milies living in Urban Ren al proj ects and those living outside of Urban Ree al projects . The Housing Authority is authorized to provide fin ncial relocation ssistance to f milies residin in Urban Rene al areas . These families also get number one pr iority for Public Housing . The Housing Authority claims that this presents no major proble, but that the principal delaying factor in reloc ation of fa iliea residing outside of Urb n Rene al projects is finanoial in btlity of tbe families to provide funds for drayaga , utility eter deposits and first month ' rent . Tbes families g t second priority for PubliQ Housing, if requir d to move because of Housing Code En1orcement nd third priority , if moving of tbeir own volition . However , the Housing Authority hos no funds for providing the inl;ial financial ass1stano required for th last two categories and consequently , fr uently, w ks' ands times even months elaspe b fore the f ilies involved re able to - ccu ulate enough cash ith which to meet these in1t1 l reloc tion expen s.

  • Text: AN OFFICIAL OPINION OF rr.!fr.trJJ rw 1m fYi "f kiJ RADIO/ATLANTA 1601 WEST PEACHTREE ST., N.E. \•JSB VI Hf POI NT THE NEED FOR MORE SUBSIDIZED HOUSING 11 11 by Elmo Ellis, General Manager Broadcast Sunday, December 22, 1968 Novelist Jan Struther once v1rote: "A city is greater than its bricks and mortar; it is greater than tov,er or palace, church or hall; a city's as great as the little people that live there." We agree wit~ the sentiment expressed in these lines, but if we expect the little people to prove their greatness, aren't we duty bound to ask ourselves, what kind of living quarters are we providing for them? Many families in Atlanta are living in decrepit apartments and rat-infested slum housing. Their so-called homes are unfit for raising children. They lend themselves more often to serving as breeding places for discontent, disease and crime. While we have replaced some of these hovels and shacks, and expect to meet the Mayor's quota of 16,800 replacement units by 1971, we aren't providing nearly enough low and middle-income housing. And we aren't subsidizing the building of such units in enough different places in the city. Clarence Coleman of the Housing Resources Committee of Atlanta headed a team that studied this matter thoroughly. Its members concluded that (1) subsidized housing must be fairly distributed through the city; and (2) the only politically feasible way to do this is by a package deal , which designates some ten areas located in various sections, north, south, east and west, all of which are suitable for housing development. 11 11 The plan isn't nev,1, but its never been given a vote of approval by the Board of Alder~n .. If they would say yes, housing development could move ahead in a v,Jay to make 1969 a oanher year for Atlanta. Our city has · proved its ability to redesign our skyline viith magnificent new office buildings, hotels, luxury apartments and shooping complexes. This same kind of vision and energetic leadership is sorely needed in the building of adequate subsidized housing. · Besides eradicating substandard d1·1ellings and bringing ne1·1 sunlight into thousands of lives, such an enlightened effort on a massive, city-~·Jide scale could oerhaps do more than any other thing to promote social and economic stability and stimulate peaceful progress throughout our community. A great many business, professional and church leaders are solidly behind this program. A number of our top civic organizations are enthusiastically supporting it. What we need now is a resounding expression of approval from the vast majority of our local citizens. If we make it clear and convincing that we, the people of Atlanta, are behind this package propos al--and we earnestly want to see subsidize housing distributed throughout the city--then v-ie wi 11 improve vastly the chances that our Housing Authority and our Aldermen will hear and give this program the green light. # # ~ . .,\(,J~ ' co, " 0AOCASnNG co" ow,oN "o"o"" WIOD w ,a ' "·"' ·"· ""'o • Al,\.F/,1 , Mi omi o WHIO AM -FM -TV, Do yton e KTVU, Son Froncisco- Ook lond WSOC AM-FM -TV, Ch orlolle · o WIIC-T\ ', Pill,burgh �

  • Text: DRAFT Mro Cecil A. Alexander, Chairma n Housing Resources Committee Finch, Alexander, Barnes, Rot hschild and Paschal 10th Floor Standard Feder a l Building 44 Broad Street, NoW. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Cecil: It i s with r egr et that I was unable to attend the Second Annual Meeting of the Housing Resources Committee on December 12, 1968. However, I have r eceived and read with interest the Committee's report and wis h to thank the Housing Resources Committee for a job well done. I note t hat although our initial replacement goals of low and medium i ncome housing are in the pipeline, those figures do not take into consideration interim growth of the City, formation of new families and any in-migration which may occur. These factors will undoubtedly increase our requirements in the low-income housing field. Also, it is necess a ry to follow through after units get in the "pipeline" to i nsure completion when they are most needed. I note in the "FUTURE DIRECTION" portion of the Committee's report that you request consideration by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of the proposals numera ted therein and a revised statement of mission for the Committee . I t is my unders tanding that copies of the Committee's report have been provided all members of the Board of Aldermen and I feel sure will r eceive s ympathetic consideration. With respect to revised mission, as we are all sadly aware, in spite of our efforts and accomplishments to date f i eld , there s till exist in the low-income housing several sizable slum pockets in the City 0 Until these can be eliminated, through the Neighborhood Development Progr a m, or otherwise by private enterprise, I want the Committ t e to remain i n tact and work aggressively toward our ultimate goal of providing a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling unit for all of our cit ize ns. To t his end I suggest that your Committee concentrate on the f ollowing ~ 1. Endeavor to get low-income housing developed near sources of employment for the occupants. 2. Encour age and cooperate in development of low a nd medium income housing in unincorporated areas of ad joining Counties . �Mro Cecil A. Alexander Page 2 January 3. Stlive for elimination of slum pockets within the City, through inclusion of such areas in future annual increments of the Neighborhood Development Program and or by other meanso 4. Assist, where feasible, in rehabilitation of appropriate structures in all areas of the City, especially in the gray areas approaching 5. Encourage development of medium and high priced housing within the City. 6. Continue to encourage the development of advanced building methods in the areas of low income housing. 7o Direct your attention to the social problems involved in low income families and neighborhoods in changing patternso In addition, I suggest that a joint study of the housing needs of the City be conducted by the Atlanta Housing Authority, the City Planning Department and the Housing Resources Committee to determine the true extent of Atlanta's needs. It is my understanding that AoRoM.PoCo is conducting a survey of housing needs in the metropolitan area and it is suggested that you call upon them for assistanceo ' Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor �

ALEXANDER, Chairm an Housing Resources Committee Dear Members: Executive Group, HRC; and ~t;s1~i~o~iJi~~fosr Low-Income Housing Coordinating Group The July meeting of the Executive 9roup, HRC and the Low-Income Housing Coordip~ting Group will be held July 17, . 1969 at 10:30. A.M. in the main auditori~m of John O. · Chiles Homes, 435 Ashby Street, S.W. (Parking in rear. Please do not park in numbered spaces). As a special featui:efor this meeting we have scheduled a slide and sound presentation explaining nwhat Is Public Housing". This should be a very interesting and informative presentation. Since the last HRC meeting, your Chair man has met with all of the Panels which had not already been given specific assignments and has suggested some pertinent items for study by the respective panels and submission of reports, with recommendations to the HRC, for consideration and action by the Executive Group as a whole. It is anticipated that written reports from all Panels will be submitted to the . Executive Group within 30-60 days. Recommendations should be definite, concise and specifically directed toward constructive positive action by appropriate agencies. Since this is an election year, and the future role of the Committee after January 1 cannot be predicted at this time, the scope of recommendations by the several Panels for action should encompass primarily things that can be done, or at least initiated, during the remainder of this calendar year. We hold hopes for worthwhile accomplishments by all Panels of the Committee during the remainder of 1969, in the field of housing. We trust that you will be able to meet with us on July 17. A return address postal card is enclosed for your convenience in informing us whether you plan to attend the July 17 meeting. Sincerely, .--ii!, 7 )--;Jd c...c~"v._ \,...f_ ~::i---=Malcolm D.
