  • Text: CITY OF .ATLANT.A October 4, 1968 CITY HALL ATLANTA, GA. 30303 Tel. 522-4463 Area Code 404 !VAN ALLEN, JR., MAYOR • MEMORANDUM To: CECIL A. ALEXANDER. Chairman Housin g Resources Committee MALCOLM D. JONES Housing Coordinator Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison Reference is made to your Memo of September 20 and Bill Wofford's letter of September 12 to Mayor Allen pertaining to difficulties encountered in Housing Code enforcement in the Cooper-Glenn area. FHA has recently liberalized its policy by relaxing its requirements for mortgage insurance. This should help. A copy of the liber al ized policy is attached. The billion dollar commitment by the Insurance Industry to the President for purchase of mortgages in hard-core and previously uninsurable areas, should also assist somewhat in this field. However, insurance companies are still extremely reluctant to make the loans without FHA insured mortgages. The Housing Act of 1968 has liberalized the requirements for direct 3% Federal Loans, under Section 312 of the Act, and has increased maximum Federal Grants, under Section 115, for rehabilitation from $1,500 to $3,000 for needy home owners. However, both the Federal Loans and Grants are still limited to certain areas; these are: Urban Renewal areas, Code Enforcement areas, Neighborhood Development Pr ogram areas, Section 117 areas (which require little acquisition), Certified areas (See sub-par. (B)(i), Section 509) and the so-called "Fair P lan° areas (See Section 1211 of the Act and sub-par. (C)(i), Section 509). At present, it appears that the Cooper-Glenn area .. does not automa tically qualify under any of the above indicated Sections of the Act; and if sufficient improvement is made in the area through rehabilitation, this could still poss ibly prevent subsequent qualification of the area for an Urban Renewal Project. This has been confirmed by a Federal official. I have been advised by Mr. Phillip Johnson of the Rehabilitation Loans and Grants Branch of Renewal Assistance Administration of HUD, the mere fact that this or other areas are included in Atlanta's Model Cities area is insuff~cient within itself to enable property owners to qualify for assistance under the 1968 National Housing Act; that perhaps the simpliest and quickest means of qualifying the �Mr. Dan E . Sweat, Jr. October 4, 1968 Page 2 the Cooper-Glenn area, as well as other similar areas, for direct Federal Loans and Grants would be through the filing and Federal approval of an application for a "Certified" area; and further, that in order to qualify for direct 3% Federal Loans and Rehabilitation Grants, the property involved must be residential and owner-occupied; definite boundaries must be established for the area; the area must be eligible for Urban Renewal within a three (3) year period; and the City must demonstrate its ability to meet its share of the Urban Renewal costs within that length of time; and the Federal authorization will be limited to a l year's duration. A,,owner-occupied residential structure may comprise 1-4 units; the Federal Loans and Grants are 100%. However, administration of applications and follow through, except in Urban Renewal areas, must be borne 100% by City funds; and the individual applications must be processed by a City designated LPA and filed with the Rehabiliation Loans and Grants Branch of the Renewal Assistance Administration of HUD at 645 Peachtree. Even though the application for a Certified area may be approved by HUD, I have been informed that the Federal authorizat·ion for expenditures is still extremely limited and funds may not be a'\Eli.lable until additional funding by Congress. The "Fair Plan" to which reference is made in sub-par. (C)(i), Section 509 and Section 1211 of the Act (See "Fair Plan", page 83, Public Law 90-448) requires the passage by the State of Fair Act legisl a tion. To d ate, no State has passed such legislation and only one State : is .workipg on it. If and when the State passes the required Fair Act legislation, specific areas will not then have to qualify as "Certified" areas. It thus appears that the liberalization of extending the direct 3% F ederal Loans and increasing t _h e Federal Grants to $3 1 000 will not apply on a City wide basis (but will apply only within certain specif i ed areas discussed above); that it can only be ta k en advantage of on a city wid e ba s is when and after the State Fair Act ha s bee n enacted by the St a te Leg isl at ure. All of t he above has been derived f r om curr ent interpre tati ons of the Act b y those in HUD who have at tended speci al b r i e fing conferences in Washington on provisi ons o f the Ac t . It is still wi thou t interpreting administrativ e mater i al . To me, this a l l appears t o b o il d o wn to this: Federal Assistance in the form of Direct Loans and Rehabilitation Grants to owneroccupants of residential properties can only be obtained in Urban Renewal areas , Code Enforcement areas, Neighborhood Development Program areas, Certified areas, Section 117 areas and Fair Plan areas, only one type of which currently exists in Atlanta i.e. Urban Renewal areas. �Mr. Dan E . Sweat, Jr. October 4, 1968 Page 3 Furthermore, it is also quite clea r that Atlanta does not have enough time nor money to qualify all of its slum areas for Federa l assistance; and that it is a fallacy to deliberately hold in suspense any area which is in need of substantial residential improvement, whj}e hopefully waiting for e x tensive direct Federal assistance. I f we are to eliminate the slums and put ever y family in a d ecent, safe and sanitary dwel l ing, as the Mayor has indicated, in a 5-yea r period, or even within the next 10 years, in addition to such Federal Assistance as may become aw l able in any of the various type Federal approved areas which may be designated, the following steps are necess ary: A. The Hous ing Code and a p propr iate Sanitary Re g ul at ions will hav e to be rig orously enf orce d in a ll areas o f the City

Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. City of Atlanta Mayor Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: Re: Report Concerning Cooper-Glenn Area The Building Department Housing Code Division is making every effort to eliminate hazardous and unsafe conditions in the above area by making inspections and notifying the owners of requirements necessary to make structures safe and sanitary or to demolish the building.

To date , t he Department has s ent out notices effecti ng one hundred and sevent y- seven structures consisting of approxima tely four hundred living units. Fort y- seven buildings have been complied by rehabilitation and thirt y -five have been demolished. Thirteen owners have been in court and e i ght y- one bui ldings are currently being repaired.

Winn SUBJECT: Luncheon Meeting of the Construction and Design Panel, Housing Resources Committee, September 24, 1968, on the Georgia Tech Campus. Those present were Vice Chai:nnan Moreland Smith, Mr. Cecil Alexander , Colonel Malcolm Jones , Mr. He:nnan Rus sell, Mr . Henry Alexander, Mr . Robert C. Watki ns , and Mr. D. P. Elliott. The following guests were also present: Mr. Malcolm Little, Director of City Planning, Georgia _Tech; Mr. Johnny Johnson, Dir ector of Model Cities Program, City of Atlanta; Mr . James Wright, Physical Planning Coordinator, · Mqdel Cities Program, City of Atlanta; and Mr. Wayne Moore , Metropolitan Planning Commission. Reverend John A. Middleton, Mr. James Moore and Dr. E. D. Harrison could not be present. Dr. Harris on was r epres ent ed by Mr . Bob Winn. Mr. Smith presided and called on Colonel Jones to review the status of the Housing Resources Committee and to state Chairman Alexander's recent charge to the Construction and Design Panel. Colonel Jones stated that as of now some 3,000 housing units have been completed and 5,000 are under construction which relate,. to t he Committge ' g ~hargg ! A lax-ge m1mber of uni ts are now i n planning and Col onel Jones f eels some 6,000 of these may r each t he const ructi on stage . Colonel J ones stated they were hoping to analyze the program and future charges to the Housing Resources Committee with Mayor Allen within a few days. Colonel Jones a l s o commented on a joint meeting of the Housing Resourc es Committ ee with t he Board of Alderm~n ' s Planni ng and Development and Building Committees . The bui ld i ng cod es of Atlanta were considered and Mr . Woffor d, Build i ng Officia l, was present . Mr . Wof fo r c felt that th e codes of t he City of Atlanta were sufficient to meet the needs that exist. v The Housing Res ources Committee has suggested that exceptions be made to the codes f or specific needs . Mr . Wofford request ed spec i f ic r ecommendations for changes or exceptions to t he code be made r ather t han charges unsubstantiated by documentation . Accordingly, the Con~truction and Des i gn Panel is now charged with examini ng t he code s i tuat ion , and with working with contractors , devel oper s and others to draft these r ecommendat i ons and remain in communicat i on with a l l c oncerned regar ding t his work. Mr. Cecil Alexander, Chairman of t he Housing Res ources Comm itt ee, stated that he felt the Model Cities Program i s the key s t one of our ef fort s and that he feels a major r eason we ha ve not as yet been chosen by HUD for experimental housing i s because our codes ar e not liber a l enough. He noted t hat a series of studies ha ve been made by the Metropolitan Planning C0;nmission and t hat Mr. Moore ( pres ,~i~t at t his meeting ) is willing to help on t his most t echnical s ubject. Mr . Alexander i el t that all we can do v is to .spot specif i c deficiencies and to make r ecommennRt ions ; t hat we cannot r ewrite t he codes . He suggested the fo::.-1owing: (1 ) a r ev i •·w• of code studies already performed ; ( 2) communications with prefabricated hous i ng manufacturers as t o th e ir experi ences concerning codes; ( 3) communications with HUD concerning t hei r requirements; ( 4) communications with the bu ilding inspectors, plumbing inspectors, electrical inspectors and so f orth. Mr. Johnny Johnson, Director of the_ Mod el Cities Program for t he City of Atl anta, stated that he felt a need to create and i nnovate in housing is E;:JSPl icit in t he Model Cities -Program requirements. He feels t hat a part of the problemmight well be in �-2- Vthe interpretation of the existing codes rather than in the cod~ itself in many cases. He feels that the Model Cities Program should be able to do some things which are different and that they need support for these. They will seek: to receive some freedom through the Mayor's Office, Board of Aldermen and the Building Inspector's Office to innovate with new techniques and new materials. i Mr. Johnson noted that demonstration cities have not yet been named by HUD and that if Atlanta is .1J9.med we must be ready to take advantage of 1this program. His office has engaged 'tric Hill & Company to make a study of the modifications necessary. in the codes of Atlanta to implement Model City Programs. A cqpy of their findings will be provided to the Panel. ' Mr. Jim Wright of the Model Cities Program stated that so far the study by Eric ijill & Company has suggested three criteria for codes: (1) they should be based on performance as much as possible; (2) there should be as few specific restrictions as ppssible, and; (3) an "or equal" clause should be inserted whenever specifics are made a part of the code. He noted that these standards will be necessary to prop·e rly administer the Model Cities Program. Mr. Wright believes that New York City has such a code and possibly the City of Chicago also. Mr. Johnson stated that some 7,000 housing units in the Model Cities area are --,. substandard. Thus, six or seven thousand new units will be needed in the next several years in an area which comprises only 4% of Atlanta's land area· just to relocate these residents. Mr. Moore, of the Metropoli~ an Planning Commission, felt that writing codes is unnecessary and impossible. He stated that there are four model codes and that regardless of claims, the Atlanta code is not the same as national codes. He stated that they vary considerably and that the plumbing code in particular is far from any national code and that most prov isions in it are arbitrary. These differences should be easy to detect and he feels the Plumbing Inspection Department should be required to justify the requirements which vary from National Standards. Mr. Moore suggested that to make a quick step a recommendation should be made to go to one of the model codes because there is no provision in the plumbing code, for example, for ammendment except by action of the Board of Aldermen on each specific point. - -:: ~ ~ 1' ~ tJ Mr. Moore suggested that the Panel try to get the Southern Standard Code accepte~ and noted that the administrative offices for this code provide for profess ional evaluation of new method s. Mr. Malcolm Little stated that the Southern Code is better --t than the National Codes because the latter are not revised often and the Southern Code is. ~ Mr. Alexander commented on the experience .of National Homes in th e Thomasville Urban Renewal Area in seeking wa ivers or exceptions to the code. Basically two houses were to be built as demons tration units. One deficiency was that there were not enough electrical outlets. Another is that plastic waste lines and preassembled copper supply lines and fiberglass tubs and backsplashes were not in accordance with the code ·• . The preassembled copper and plastic lines were fought because "plumbers should not be working in a factory, but outside where it is healthier." He noted, however, that the Building Inspection and Electrical Inspection units have both said that they would send inspectors to a factory at the expense of the manufacturer. The Plumbing Inspection Department so far has not agreed to send inspectors to a factory if the factory is located outside of the City of Atlanta. �-3- Mr. Alexander proposed we consider the slogan "Model Codes for Model Cities." Colonel Jones noted that HUD has started on some experimental construct ion projects on low-cost housing units. One is at Ashburn, Georgia, and one is in Pinellas County, Florida. One deals with low-cost single family units and the other with "golden age" units for the elderly. The following steps were decided to be neces sary by the Panel: 1. 2• 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Coordinate efforts of the Panel with the Model Cities Program. the Southern Building Code idea for implementation in Atlanta. Pursue the National Electr ical Code (Southern Code does not have Electrical Code) for implementation in Atlanta. Contact National Homes and other manufacturers concerning their experiences with codes here and elsewhere. Contact major manufacturer s who would be involved and get their views and enlist their support if possible. Contact Mr. Wof ford and ot her members of t he Building Inspection Department; Keep them inf or med. Try to enlist t hem. Follow up with Mr. Moore concerning the efforts of the Metropolitan Planning Commission in coordination with the Panel. .Pursue Mr. Johns on noted that the Model Cities Program· in Atlanta· is'hoping to build a multi-unit condominium which is des i gned to meet the Sout her n Code Standards as well as other projects in Atlanta by Mar h of 1969,as demonstration units. He noted that i t will be necessary to pr ovi de housing f or any r esidents displaced while construction is going on. ~ . .

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR. , Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison On May 8 and again on May 24 and 25 a team of consultants from ABT A s sociates and Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall from Cambridge, Massachusetts, under contract with HUD, conducted a survey of Atlanta, as one of 25 cities, in interest of Experimental Housing, preferably in Model Cities areas, or at least in close proximity to Model Cities areas. Similar surveys were being conducted simultaneously by two other consultant teams, each assigned 25 additional cities, as Phase I of HUD 1 s special E x perimental Housing program. The mission of the team is to report to HUD by June 15, 1968, its recommendations of cities and specific projects in those cities for HUD to invest $60, 000, 000 during a two year period on Experimental Housing projects, to get underway as soon as possible, and in any event by Spring, 1969, at the latest. Phase II (development) of the program is to be carried out by a prime contractor to be selected by HUD. On May 6, Mayor Allen responded to a letter from Mr . Ralph H . Taylor, A s sistant Secretary of HUD, stating that Atlanta is interested in the E x p e rime ntal Housing program; offered to cooperate with it ; and reque ste d that Atlanta be inc2.uded in the list of cities to be selected for this project. It is comte mplate d that the r esults of thes e e x perimental proj e cts in s e lect ed cities will guide the direction fo r dev e lopme n t, th ro u gh HUD , o f t he P re s i d e n t 's p r ogram for 6 , 000 , 000 low - in c ome dwelling unit s over a ten -ye a r pe r iod , fo r whi c h the S e nate recently app r o ved 5 b i ll i on dollar s . �Mr. Sweat Page T wo June 7, 1968 I escorted members of the survey team about the city on both visits and assisted in arranging interviews for them with various City officials and prominent businessmen in Atlanta. I have a list of most of those with whom they talked and notes on some of the interviews. I feel that the team accomplished as much as could reasonably be expected during such a short period and that its members were generally pleased with what they learned about conditions in Atlanta and progress being made in the low-income housing program here. With respect to Model Cities, Mr. Johnson informed them that no specific site for new housing had yet been selected in the Model Cities area and that he was reluctant to even suggest a site, until such had been cleared with the Model Cities Executive Board. In response to queries from the team as to when this could be done, Mr. Johnson further e x plained that if policy determination is made at top City level, he thbught he could present the matter to his E xe cutive Board and obtain its approval within a couple of days or so . M r . Johnson w a s d efinite that such site should rtot b e ae uh• d and d e v e lope d thr ou h th - Hous 'ng Author ity und r no rmal Ur ban Ren wal processes ; that to do so would require so m u c h time and be inv olved so much in F ederal red tape, he thought the entire idea might as well be abandoned. D u ring discussion with Mr. Gladin, Mr. Gladin told the c onsultant s that a ny site to b e s e l ected for accelerated advance acquisition would have to be in the Cooper -Glenn area, as that area is slated to be the first Urban R enewal project in the Model Cities area. I personally disagree with the theory that the first experimental housin g proj ect in Model Cities should be in the Coope r - Glenn area. I feel that a more centr a lly lo cated and prominently situated s ite could and should be selected and obtained through some form of advance acquisition ; and that this would give a greater boost to Model Cities and benefit the C ity as a whole more than selection of a site in the Cooper-Glenn area for this purpose. �Mr. Sweat Page Three June 7, 1968 Since Model Cities is to be developed under direct superv1s10n of the Mayor and the City of Atlanta and not as a super Urban Renewal area; and due to the interest and pressure which HUD is now directing to experimental housing, I am of the opinion that authority could be obtained from HUD for early acquisition of almost any reasonable site which the City might designate in the Model Cities area. I feel that (1) approximately a four block area (about 10 acres) centered on the intersection of Connally Place and Crumley Street, S. E. or (2 ) a similar size area centered on the intersection of Reed and Love Streets, S. E. , would provide a suitable location for early acquisition for experimental housing and would cause a minimum of displacement (which will eventually have to be done any way ). This is not likely to be done , however, without specific guidance and direction from the 1\/rayor's Office. Both of the locations indicated above have been shown to and discussed with Jim Wright of the Model Cities staff and their location marked on a map turned over to him. In this connection I call your attention to marked portions {page 3 and 4 ) of the attached copy of Minutes of the Housing Resources Executive Committee meeting of May 2, 1968. I recomme nd that the Model Cities staff be direct e d to c ause s e l e ction soon of a site for housing (preferably experimental) and that formal request be made as soon as possible to HUD to authorize such acquisition, subject to eventual application of such Federal financial assistance as might e ventually apply in the Model Citie s area.

  • Text: MINUTES HOUSING RESOURCES EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AND LOW-INCOME HOUSING COORDINATING GROUP MEETING May 2, 1968 The regular montly meeting of the Housing Coordinating Group and Housing Resources Committee Executive Group was held in Corr.mittee Room 2, City Hall, May 2, 1968, at 10:00 a.m. Copies of the invitational notices, agenda, record of those attending and reference documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes. Chairc3 u Cecil n. Alexznder presided. Mr. Alexander opec ?1 the nceting by asking Mr. Archer Smith to give the Committee a report on school construction. Mr. Smith presented the following two proposals: (1) Approach the Sta te Sc hool Building Authority about them leasing school buildings and then sub-leasing them to the City. The State could lease the premises from the developer for 30/40 years and turn then o er to the City of Atlanta on a sub-lease basis. It would take a political decision by the State to re-vamp procedures to allow this. One advantage to this proposal would be that it would apply to all school systems if they so desire. (This was considered perhaps the simplest course of action.) {2) Have a local constitutional amendment passed allowing the City Sc hool Board to enter into leases on a long term basis. This loc a l ~~end~ent would be the more solid way and the local a~endment would be easier to pass. Mr. Alexander asked if the School Board had been approached to see which course of action they would prefer? Mr. Smith stated that they had not, officially, but the School Board would probably go a long with either method. Mr . Jones suggested that the Committee authorize the Legal Panel to contact the School Bo ard and see which they would prefer a nd then pursue that course. A motion was made , seconded a nd adopted that the Legal Panel be so authorized. Mr. John Ch~p~an appe~red before the Committee to discuss a proposal for buildinr. l ow-income housing. He said housing for the lowest inco~e families would pro~ably need to be financed by the Federal govern~ent; that housing for medium income families could be financed through private corporations. He was suggesting dwelling units with rent ra nge~of $70-$80-$90 for 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms respectively. He proposed forming a limited profit corporation, the mer.!bers of which would eac h put up a certain amount of front money, with the intent of building developments which would produce 4-5% profit, instead of the customery 1415% profit. He proposed using private conventional financing �2 entirely, with no connection with Federal assisted programs. He adv~sed he would try to contact several private corporations about putting up money a t a reasonable rate of interest and that if he got enough response from private corporations that this could be done, he would inform the Committee of the reaction he received from this idea. Mr. Alexander con mented on and referred to an article by Vincent T. Burke, in the Los n ngeles Times, March 18, 1968, relating how certain Negro families in Washington had been assisted by a tiny non-profit "Home Buyers" group in obtaining home ownership witho ut ~ny a ssistance from Federal programs or organi~a tior.s. (Cc r y o f the article is attached to the file copy of the~e ~i nutes.) Mr. Pers e l ls re p0r tec.i t o the Con:::1i ttee on the Honor Farm No. 1 Site proposed con ce pt . He presented a map showing approximately 120 acres bet ween the Federal Penitentiary and the Thomasville Ur b a n Re nc~ a l Project t ha t the Federal government proposes to tur n over t o t~e City f o r urban improvement, including hous ing . He expln i ned tha t the portion of the property to be developed f o r hous il-:g and rela ted cmnmercial could be either turned over directly oy HUD to developers, turned over to the City to put ou for bids, or go to Atlanta Housing Authority for develop~ ent through process of Ur ban Renewal. fl meeting of the Al d erma nic P l2 n ning and Development Committee is to be held to cons id er wh a t should b e done. Mr. Persells also advised that a n ew p~ r k ar e a i s to be develope d and an El e mentary School and a " Middle School" ar e to be constructed in the area. The question wa s a sked a b out how housing could be developed in the shortest le ngth of time. Mr. Persells responded we would b e una ble to st ar t b uilding unt i l a stre et and sewer system was b e g un; t hat i s the biggest d ela y. I t wa s sugge sted that the l a nd could be s old t o a developer a nd h e could put in the stree t system simult aneous wi t h t he h o us i ng d e v e lopme nt. Tw o cho i c es we r e recommend e d : (1) The Ci t y o r d e velopers could g o in a nd p ut in the street and ut i lities at their e xpe ns e o f about $270 ,000. 00 . (2 ) Have streets put in b y the Housin g Autho r ity as an Urban RedevelopEent expense. Mr . Pars ells expl~inod that fro~~fi n a ncial sta nd poi nt and time eleme nt , the il03w f avorable sollution would be to have the Housing Authori . y put i n the street Gnd sewer system at Urban Redevelopment expeLse , b e c a use the schools would have to be built any way, and the City ~ould receiv e credit for the schools which would more than pay for the expense of putting streets and sewers in and that they could be put in while the developers were getting their plans approved by the Federal government. �r 3 Mr. Persells advised that topographical maps and surveys had already been made. He also reported that there was a small triangle of land the Federal government doesn't own; stated there were some title difficulties and the only sure way and quickest way to get clear title to the property would be condemnation proceedings through the Urban Re newal process. The Land to be developed for housing and related commercial is to be offered for sale on May 27, 1968, to developers, with proposals called for. Additional land, 17 single-family lots, is to be added to the Thomasville Urban Renewal Site for sale, with ground breaking between May 20-28. Approximately 50 acres of the 120 acre tract of land would be available for housing. Mr. Archer Smith, made a motion that a formal resolution be drawn up that the Housing Resources Committee goes on record as urging the support of the New-Town-In-Town project concept conditioned upon a substantial portion of the project to be developed for lowest-income housing. If this condition is not met, then the Housing Resour ces Committee goes on record as opposed to the project as presently planned. Motion was seconded and unanimously adopted, with instructions that copies go to the Housing Authority, Mayr Ivan Al len, Jr., Members of the Board of Aldermen and to Mr. Baxter, of HUD . Mr . Howland announced that the CACUR non-profit housing development corporation has now selected five units for rehabilitation under 221 (h) and expected to have them under way within 60 days. Mr . Alexander then a s ked Mr . Jones to explain a proposal he had been working on for accelerated low-income housing development in the Model Cities area. Mr. Jones explained the concept and stated that a development team was very anxious to get a tract of about 10 acres f ..cfr an experimental housing development to stzrrt this summer. He read a letter just received by the Mayor from Mr. H. Ra lph Taylor, Assistant Secretary, HUD, proposing a HUD sponsored experimental · housing project in Model Cities area in selected cities to be carried out by a pri~e contractor to be selected by HUD; and inquiring if P.tla nta desired to cooperate? Mr. Jones eKplained that this tied ind irec tly with the proposal he has been working on; that because of multiple ownerships, it is virtually impossible for private dev elopers to acquire land in the Mode l Cities area for this purpose; that therefore he has studied the area and looked at certain sites, with others~ including a representative of Model Cities, and has selected two tentative sites, having badly dilapidated housing which will in all probability be demolished any way, and has marked these on a map for consideration of the Model Cities staff. �I 4 Mr. Jones proposed "advanced land acquisition" to be requested in the Model Cities area on such a site to be sleeted so they would get started on construction of approximately a 10 acre site as soon as possible. A motion was made, seconded and adopted that the Housing Resources Committee recommends that a su i table site be selected in the Model Cities area f or accelerated development of low-income housing (preferably under the experimental housing concept) and that application be made to HUD for authority to acquire the site under the "advance land acquisition" procedures; that copies be provided the Planning and Development Commmittee, Mayor and Board of Aldermen and HUD. Mr. Persells stated that he concurred and that the Housing Authority would go·in·soon with a request that the entire Model Cities area be placed under a GNRP so that this could be done as part of an Urban Renewa l Project within the Model Cities area. He requested support of the HRC to the Planning and Development Committee, the Mayor and Board of Aldermen and to HUD on that proposal so that the "advance land acquisition" could be legally implemented. The Committee agreed to support the GNRP proposal for this purpose. • Mr. P:lexander informed the Committee of g r ound-breaking on the first Turnke y Housing project in Atlanta on Hollywood Road, N.W. at 2 :00 p.m. on May 9 , 1968. All were invited ; that Mayo r Ivan Allen , Jr., would o ffi c ially break the ground for the 202-ttnit development. Copies o f the announcement , prepared by the . Housing Authori t y were distributed. It was announced that the report fr om the Ad Hoc Committee on Low-inc ome Housing Analysis will not be ready and that it would be discussed at a later da~e. Mr . Plexander announced that a confe r ence will be held May 29th at the Dinkler all day , consisting o f debates and discussions on legal aspects, employment, workshops, etc., on equal opportunity in housing.

C. 20410 OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY IN REPLY REFER TO: FOR DEMONSTRATIONS AND INTERGOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS APR 2 2 1968 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: I want to take this opportunity to inform you of what I believe is a most exciting experiment in building new housing for low- and moderateincome families within the Inner-City. Within the next several weeks, a prime contractor, most likely a joint venture of several firms, will be selected by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Th.is prime contractor will be expected to supervise and manage a variety of low-cost housing experiments in perhaps as many as 20 cities, most of which now have Model Cities grants. These experiments will be carried out only in cities which are wiling to cooperate in the development of innovative techniques aimed at generating a higher level of housing construction for low-income families. The prime contractor will seek out, study and evaluate new design, construction and management techniques and systems, as well as materials and components to be used in the experiments. Based on analysis and after consultation with city o:rficials and such interested private groups as l~bor unions, neighborhood organizations, builders, architects, sponsors and educators, the contractor will determine the kind of housing to be built in a specific neighborhood. The goal of the overall experiment is to obtain more housing value for each dollar spent in the development of good city housing for low-income families, and to identify the obstacles to building such housing. Where such housing is to be built within a designated model neighborhood, the experiment v.i.11 be carried out in the context of the Mod.el Cities planning and program implementation process. In any case, it seems essential that the groups mentioned above be consulted if this bold experiment is to work. Following the selection of the prime contractor, HUD will work with him to select cities which seem to have the capacity and willingness to carry out an experimental project for low-incane housing. The Department will be committing not on1y substantial research :f'unds in this effort, but also tens of millions of dollars of program funds from several program sources. �2 With the f'ull cooperation of' all who become involved in this experiment to better the nation's housing, and to make government more responsive to the most pressing housing needs, I believe that this can be a most significant step toward meeting the goal of' a decent home in a suitable living enviromnent for every American family. Sincerely yours, H. Ralph Taylor Assistant Secretary • �

Atlanta, Georgia 30318 Dear Mr. Dobbs: As the time draws nearer for the next zoning hearing in July on the Browntown public housing, i-c is worthwhile at this point to determine the progres s which the City has made in improving community facilities in the N. W. Perry Homes area. This letter lists specific improvements designated for this year by the Parks and Construction Departments. The various i mp rovements include: Parks 1) Development of Gun Club Park This includes $200,000 from the Parks Improvement Fund for the construction of a recreation building, bathhouse, and swinnning pool at the Gun Club Park site. 2) Redevelopment of Center Hill Park $40,000 has been allocated from the Parks Depart ment's St ate Aide funds for the general redevelopment of Center Hill Park. The improvements will include: site preparation and drainage, driveway and parking spacesy paved court area, a children's area, and the relighting of the existing ball field. Sewers 3) Expansion of Hollywood Road .Lift St ation This expansion will allow fo r increased population development along Proctor Creek. �Mr. Robert Dobbs 4) Page 2 March 4, 1968 ~ellwood Sanitary Re lief Sewer This project includes the construction of a sanitary outfall sewer from Ashby to Proctor Creek to relieve the existing overload of ,the Bellwood Sanitary sewer. Regarding the school situa tion, as of this date the Board of Educa tion has made no plans for a spring bond issue. From what I can gather they -are expecting some bond money to be generated by the stat e legislature in November. Of course, the e:>tpansion of Archer High School is a first priority item as soon as the bond money is acquired by the School Department. As you probably know, I am working with the N. W. Perry Homes Neighborhood Center on improvements in the scheduling and routing of buses. If there are any other matters which you feel deserve our attention, please let me know.• Sincerely yours, Peter Labrie PL/cm Enclosures �
