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 ·.·, ~ �

M., Wedne s day, October 8, 1969, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. Invitational notice, Agenda, list of those inv-ited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes. Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by explaining the preparation of, and filing by the City on September 19, 1969, an application for consideration by HUD for designation of Atlanta as a prototype housing site City, under 11 0peration Breakthrough 11 ; that two sites were proposed, i.e., a fragmented site in 3 portions in the Model Cities area and a 33. 6 acre composite site at the intersection of Carrol and Harvill Roads, N. W . . It was also explained that Atlanta had been omitted in the initial invitations by HUD and that a very short time was available in which to prepare and submit the application, after Atlanta was invited to do so. The Chairman complemented Urban East, Hou s ing Con s ultant Firm, which assembled the application, and other participants in preparation of the application, including Model Cities, Housing Authority, Planning Department, State Planning Bureau, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and Metropolit an Planning Com1nission. He also commented on favorable supporting endorsements submitted by a large number of Agencies, . business firms, religious groups and civic organizations. \ Schedule was announced as follows: July 11, 1969 Briefing Session {original - did not include Atlanta) September 19, 1969 Proposals Due October 3, 1969 HUD will complete preliminary site evaluation October 17, 1969 HUD inspection teams will complete site inspections November 28, 1969 HUD will announce selection of eight p r ototype sites �r Page Two January 1, 1970 Sites must be cleared and ready for developrnent March 1, 1970 Site improvements will begin June 1, 1970 First housing units will be shipped and installed July 1, 1970 Construct ion and testing period begins. HUD will control l and through leases, options to purchase and purchases. HUD will assume management control of the demonstration program. July 1, 1971 Housing units will be sold and occupied. Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment of the Housing Authority was then called upon to present the over all Neighborhood Development Program Proposed Activities for 1970. Mr. O penshaw summarized the propos e d overall program as shown in the attached (Encl. 1) and emphasized the proba ble neces s ity for cut back, as indicated in letter of S eptember 23, 1969, from Region III of HUD (attache d as part of Encl. 1). Mr . Opens haw th e n introduced Mr. Robe rt Barnett, Project Manager of the Vine City NDP project and Mrs. Dorothy Bolden, Vi ce-Chairman of the Vine City PAC (Project Area Committee ). Mr. Barnett very ably explained in detail the process used in developing the plan, through citizen participation (planning with citizens of the area rather than for them) and coordination with various agencies involved. He showed the current overall plan as approved by the PAC and the specific area marked out for execution in 1970. The overall plan includes: a 24- acre park, commercial area, garden type apartment s (no mor e than 2 story), town houses, singl e-family r es ide nces, and a community area (including a day care center). The proposed activities for the 1970 target area are shown in enclosure 1. Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Harry Adley, President of Adley and Associates and Mr. Fred Kerpel and M r. Lavern Parks, ass ocia t ed with Mr. Adley, C ons ultant s for the Edgewood NDP a rea. He also introduc e d Mr . Curtis Parrish, Project M a n ager , Edgewood NDP. Mr. Adley made an excellent color slide presentation of the development process and resulting plans of the Edgewood (formerly known as East Atlanta ) NDP area. See enclosure 1 for proposed activities for 1970. In order to conserve time , further dis cussion of proposed activities i n the NDP areas was concluded. I �Page Three The Chairman then asked Mr. Copen.shaw if there was anything the HRC could do to assist in preventing the drastic cut back in Atlanta I s anticipated Federal capital grant funds for 1970 ?; and called upon HRC members for comment. Motion was 1nad by Mr. Frank Clarke, seconded by Mr. Richard Harvey and after considerable discussion, was unanimously adopted that a letter be written to the Secretary of HUD, with copy to the Regional Administrator, pointing out the disastrous effects such a cut back would have on Atlanta I s current and future NDP activities and urging that every consideration possible be extended Atlanta in not reducing the Federal capital grant funds. (Copy of letter to Secretary Romney is attached, Encl. 3 ). The Chairman then called on reports from Panel Chairmen, starting with Mr. Frank J. Clarke, Chairman of the Construction and De sign Panel. Mr. Clarke presented a formal written rel?ort of his Panel, copy attached {Encl. 2), which includes: 1. His Panel's planned activities for the remainder of 1969; 2. A proposed letter for Mayo·r Allen to deliver to his successor recommending continuation of the HRC and the activities of the Construction and Design Panel; 3. A report developed in his office by an Urban Corps intern pertaining to Atlanta's Codes. Mr . . Clarke recommended that the report on codes be accepted by the HRC and copies transmitted to the Building Official and Chairman of the Building Committee, Board of Aldermen. The Chairman asked if there was any objections? As there was no objection from any member of the HRC, _this will be done. Courtesy copies of the report on codes had previously been presented to Mr. W. R. Wofford, Building Official, before presentation of the report to the Housing Resources Committee. Mr. "\'vofford, who had previously been invited to the meeting, responded unfavorably to the report on codes and specifically requested that certain members of his Department be permitted then to express their views and reactions to portions of the report which pertain to their special activities. The Chairman consented. Mr, Wofford then introduced the following members of his Department: Mr. W. A. Hewes, Senior Administrative Assistant, Mr. Norman Koplon, Structural Engineer, Mr. Wylie W. Mitchell, Chief Plumbing Inspector, Mr. E. F. (Red) Wise, Chief Electrical Inspector, Mr. W. H. Goodwin, Assistant Chief Electrical Inspector and Mr. Romer Pittman, Assistant Chief Plumbing Inspector. Mr. Koplon, Mr. Mitchell and Mr . Wise presented their views on the report. They were all hostile and negative in their comments and expressed strong .dissatisfactio n with the report, insofar as it pertained to their activities . �Page Four Mr. Archer Smith, Chairn1an of the L egal Panel, commented tha t he did not consider the report pertaining to the codes as criticism or condemnation of the Building D epartment , but r a ther in the nature of an inquiry for clarification to l ayme n. He a l s o asked Mr. Wofford that since the Atlanta Building Code is b ased on the Natio n al Building Code, with modifications p e rtaining to Atlanta, if a n index of the changes applicable to Atlanta only has been prepared, in order to provide quick determination of the Atlanta changes by builde r s and architects familiar with the National Building Code, without them h a ving to take hours of reading and comparison between the two, in order to d ete rmine what a r e the Atlanta changes .? Mr. Wofford replied that such has not b ee n prepar e d, but that changes can b e determined by comparison between the two codes. Mr. Alexander commented that if such a listing was available that it would be quite a convenience to architects and he presumed likewise to builders. Since it was past time to adjourn th e meeting, the Chairman announced tha t he would not call for additional Panel Reports nor complete the re1nainder of th e Agenda. One item of interest under Other Business {not taken up during the me eting) was announcement September 30 by the Housing Authority of the offering for bids of the fir st and thus far only tract of land in th e Model Cities area for redevelopment. The offering is for a 5. 43 ac re tra ct south of Atlanta Avenue, betwe e n Conna lly and Hill Streets, S. W. It is being offered on a fixed price basis, with design competition, for not less than 40, nor more than 50, .units of town houses. The meeting was adjourned at 12:10 P. M.

Whether or not the entire City should be rezoned, and if so, whether they would employ the 1983 Land Use Plan as their basic guide? 2. Their position on package zoning, i.e., disbursing public housing units throughout all quadrants of the City, and, in particular, whether each candidate would favor public housing in the ward in which they presently reside, if land could be located that was feasible in cost, and if the requisite community facilities were available? 3. ~ Should the· City undertake to construct public housing units with public funds to · provide for its poor, and do they feel that priva te enterprise is capable and willing to meet this need, should the City not continue the fostering of public housing? 4. Does a public housing unit of the caliber of the John 0. Chiles Project on Ashby Street lower or improve prqperty values and the standards of the community, if it were placed in (a) a slum neighborhood; (b) a lower middle class neighborhood; (c) a middle class neighborhood; (d) an upper class neighborhood? 5. Do you feel that the Atlanta School Bo a rd should be given the right, and should exercise the right, to lease school buildings from a private developer in order to provide the requisit e cornmunity facilities in a l a rge public housing project, as opposed to the present system of having to a cquire the land in fee simple before being able to use it for school purposes? 6. Do you feel that the present Housing Resources Committee, consisting of one staff man, one secretary, with the Chairman and the rest of the Committee being engag e d in private enterprise, should be abolished, e x panded, or diminished? 7. What is your position on the proposal that a separate housing department be created for the City with a department head holding equal dignity with other departments, a full time staff, and sufficiert secretarial assistance? 8. What would be your position on a specific grievance procedure relative to eviction and discipline in Atlanta Housing Authority projects? .·, 1 �

S. Depart:ment of Housing and Urban Development. 1 T. F. Rogers, Director of HUD' s Office of Urban Technology and Research, .announced the award of a $100,000 contract to the American Society for Public Administration. The project will study · severa l of HUD' s programs in terms of their operation in a number of se lected cities. . I l Mr. Rogers noted that "it is on~ of HUD' s prime responsibilities to insure that states, cities and localities use its assistance programs to maximu m advantage. The conclusions of this study are expected to aid both HUD and the cities in improving the results of such Federal programs as public housing, urban renewal., water and sewer facilitie s, and open space. 11 The National Academy o f Public Administration, working with its parent organization, the America n Society for Public Administration, will establish a national panel and individual city panels to conduct the study. These panels will develop a pattern describing the activities related to the admini stration o f each program surveyed in a city, and analyze the principal local c ritica l decisions and actions. The · panel members will include member s of the Academy a nd residents of each city to be surveyed who are knowledgeable in public administration matters. - more- • I !I I �• -2- . HUD- No. 69-0008 . Among the questions t o be studied will be the local reaction to the initiation o f a pro gram ; the nature of Federal, State and lo cal initiative ; how t he problem t o be solved wa s perceived by various groups within the community ; whether s killed personnel were available to carry out t he program, and what the performance rate and effectivene ss has been in the light o f local circumstances. When the individual city studies are completed, the results will be assessed on a national scale and general conclusions drawn.

Our Department has taken an active interest in housing in the past few years and will continue to do so in the ful'ure in view of new Workable Program requirements concerning housing. During the ne_x t few months, we will attempt to accomplish the following work tasks: 1. _2. To establish clear standards by which to judge whether new housing serves low, moderate or upper-income families. I think.we all agree that there ore problems with the standards we are presently using; however, we are wel I aware that the standards were hastily estobl ished. After establishing the above standards, we will attempt to evaluate all housing permitted within the past 2 1/2 years and to provide you with an analysis of this information. We will be attempting to establish a format which will meet HUD Workable Program guidelines for future reporting and also serve City heads. 3. After completion of items one and two, our staff will begin the design of a city- wide housing study, �Mr. Malcolm Jones October 9, 1969 Page 2 . Mrs. Sally Pickett is the Planning Department sl"aff member who has primary responsibility for these tasks.
