List of those invited, with attendance incµcated, is attached to the file copy of these minutes. Also attached to the file copy of these minutes are copies of invitational notices sent out for the meeting and the agenda used at the meeting. Chairman Alexar.der presided. Mr. Alexander opened the meeting by stating that there are two matters under consideration: (1) There is going to be a Conference on Equal Opportunity in Housing to be co-sponsored by the tlanta Federal Executive Board and other voluntary organizations. Twenty-five (25) organizations have signed up as cosponsors i.e. Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta, CACUR, Community Relations Commission, Interfaith Housing Corporation, Georgia Council of Human Relations and many others. He mentioned the fact that the Mayor is backing this conference . The primary purpose of this conference will be educational. This conference will seek to bring those of different backgrounds and viewpoints around the table to discuss the problems - to have Atlanta people talk to Atlanta people. Broad participation by organizations and individuals throughout Metropolitan area will be encouraged. He read to the Group the objectives contained in brochure passed out by :t'ir. Nat Welch at the March 12 preliminary meeting called by the Federal Executive Board. Mr . Alexander made a suggestion that the Housing Resources Committee might become a co-sponsor of the conference by lending their name as cosponsor without going on recor d as to how the Housing Resources Committe911 feels about the matter. Mr. Palmer made a motion that the HRC be a co-sponsor of the conference on Equal Opportunities in Housing on this basis; the motion was seconded and Committee voted on and approved the motion.. (2) Mr. Alexander then proposed that a Resolution be drawn up tc,.request that an Aldermanic Committee be established on Housing. He stated that a call should be made to either set up a separate Aldermanic Committee or to take �housing into an existing committee which would concentrate its efforts on the Low-income Housing Program. He stated that at present we have the Planning and Development Committee under Yir. Cook; however, housing is not one of their specific concerns. He said that he felt having an interested and responsive gr oup in the Aldermanic Board would be very beneficial to the program. Mr. Archer Smith made a motion that the Mayor be requested to set up a Committee f or, or refer to an existing committee, consideration of the ~lty 1 s Program on Low-income Housing. The motion was s econded and carried! Mr . Alexander t hen asked Hr. Collier Gladin to explain the Land Use Map and its effect 0 :1 the Low-income Housing Program. He mentioned that of some 54 sites bei ng consider ed for this program only 12 are consistant with the Land Use Map, Mr . Gl adin explai ned that the Land Use Map represents a distribution of our portion of the growth that we anticipate coming into the City by 1983. The acreage shown on the map is to absorb the anticipated growth of 150,000 people. This Plan should encourage greater density of housing and at same time protect single f amily r esidential areas. Parks and other s ervices are planned i n advance of all this growth. This Plan ser ves as a guide to housing, schools, parks and s ewer r equi r ements. He said this was not a zoning map; just a guide. He stat ed this plan does not indicat e rapid transit. Detailed changes will be made as they become necess~ y. He said the Mayor's statement that this Plan was a "policy guide on which we can build" is a good description. Mr . Alexander asked how many additional acres were for housing? Mr . Gladin didn 't have the answer available at the meeting. Mr. Alexander asked if an owner of pr operty came in and applied for rezoni ng wi thout a developer, what would happen? He asked if there was anything in the Ordinance that r equired t hey have to be ready to develop? Mr. Gl adin said that when a reques t i s received, it will be farmed out f or considerat i on. Recommendation of School Department and others concerned will be consi der ed . Mr . Jones asked if a proposal is br ought in f or rezoni ng a sit e and the t ype of development is cons istant with what is projected in 1983 on the Land Use Map, in g2ner al coul d t he developer anticipat e f avorable considerat i on by the Plannins Dep&rtr.~rmt and Zoning Commi ~t ee? Mr . Gladin r e~pondcd t hat the Planning Department will suppor t pr oposals along these lines ~ Mr. Alexander then sai d t hat being the case, when a developer comes in with a proj ect f or a s ite that i s in conformance with the Land Use Map and we think is a good pr oj ect he f elt the HRC should therefore support i t. �3 Mr . Winn asked what effect the Land Use Plan would have on the plans of 54 sites of which only 12 were in conformance with the plan . Mr. Alexander said it would probably hurt us. Mr. Jones said we would have to realign our plans, Mr. Gladin asked how many Rcres were in the 12 sites that were in conformance with the Land Use Plan, Mr. Jones said approximately 320 acres. Mr. Gladin said that maybe we should take a look at the number of units that have actually been built. He stated that many proj ects had been planned, but not actually built yet, and that some sites had also been turned down for reasons other than zoning, Yir. Palmer asked if the Land Use Plan shows sites in any instance that the Aldermanic Board has already turned down? (They are not indicated specifically as such.) Mr. Archer Smith said if there are particular projects in this general connection, that the HRC should send advocates to Aldermanie Board and Zoning Committee to support them. Mr. Smith also stated that he felt the HRC should act as advocate at the Zoning and Planning Commission levels for particular low-income housing pr ojects which conform to the 198J projections of the Land Use Map of the Planning Department of the City, Mr . Jones brought out the point that the HRC should not be required to suppor t all developments that are in conformance with the Land Use Map ; that proposalsmight not be appr opriate, Mr . Archer Smith then suggested that an addendum be added to the Resoluti on s tating that the res olution would not exclude the HRC f r om supporting proj ects that are not in conformance wi t h the Land Use Map. After considerable discussion, it was concl uded that t he Resolut ion not be amended, as this would t end t o weaken it. It was then decided and agreed t hat Mr. Alexander and Mr, Archer Smith would get together and draw up specific wording of a Resolution stating that the HRC would give its support to develophients of low-income housing by going before the Planning Board and Zoning Committee of the Aldermanic Boo.rd. The following is the Resolution developed. "Housing Resources Committee will support and advocate in each instanca before the Zoning Committee and the Aldermanic Board those appropriately planned development projects which conform to the 1983 Land Use Map of the City Planning Department, as it _Presently exists or is hereafter a~rnded,»-· �4 Mr. Pclmer asked for a list for Mr. Clarence CQleman by March 20 of major proj:scts that hact--been. .turned down already by Zoning Committee or Aldermanic Board, but which now might be desirable in view of the Land Use Mnp, Mr. Jones sru.d he could give him a partial list by that date. Mr. Alexander asked about this npproach in terms of the Turnkey Program.Mr. Persells said it might be a means of finding more land for development for this program. He stated th2t consideration should be given by builders to what sorts of people will live in the housing; that developers may determine whether they could mnke more money building for low-income or high income people as both types of housing are needed in Atlanta. However, he suggested that zoning should be on basis of appropriateness of the area to meet the long term requirements of the City as to location, density, schools, parks, etc., and not on the basis of what kind of people will occupy the units; that when we reach the point of zoning on plans for future utilization of the land, rather than on who is to use or live there, we would be much better off. Mr. Alexander asked Mr~ Persolls if this Land Use Map was going to be used by the Housing Authority as a guide? Mr. Persells indicated that it had been us ed; however, the Housing Authority does not turn down a project simply because it does not conform to the Map. Mr. Alexander then discussed the role of the Housing Authority further. He stated that we are ahead on the 221 program and Rehabilitation phas e , but behind about 2500 units on Turnkey and Public Housing. Mr. Bystry asked if HUD had checked any of these areas for Public Housing? Mr . Gladin stat ed thct the City is r equired to maintain a Land Use Plan under the Workable Program. The problems are finding more sites and get ting t hem zoned; that turnk ey proj ects must go through HUD in getting appr ovnls. Mr . Alexander asked from the developer s point of view for the pros n.nd cons of Turnkey ver sus the 221 program. He asked if the 221 program w~s more appealing to developers than the Turnkey program. Mr. W. L. Moore said getting l ruid zoned f or Publ ic Housi ng is more difficult .· Mr. Alexander asked about economix ( a mixture of Public Housing.,. 221 d ( 3)., and single frunily dwellings) t o be developed in one area, Mr. Persells said the Housing Authority preferred to have that kind of mixture. However, each program would require separate mortgages and separate approvals and that it would be a complicated process, Mr. Bystry said t.his might delay the program, ., �5 Mr. Alexander stated that much stronger support would be likely if particularly large tracts were developed under the 221 program with only a smaller portion of the tract for public use. Mr. Noorc stated that the biggest problem wa s the high cost of land in Atlante! and the difficulty of financing l and under the 221 d (3) program and; secondly getting the land zoned. He f elt that this type financing (interim construction lonns a t reasonable interest rates) might be encouraged by this Committee . He also suggest ed that perhaps banks and other financing institutions might be encouraged to set aside a certain amount or percent of their money for fin ancing of low-income hous ing. He mentioned the fact tha t insurance compani e s ar c nc:iw participatL:g in fi nan cing of this type. Mr. Alexender said that most of the l arge banks in Atlanta are repres ented on this Committee . He stated that perh~ps the Business Participation Panel could do something about encouraging this type of financing. Yir. Alexander then welcomed Mr. Richard Ce cil, who was r epres enting Mr. William C. Bartholomay, Prosident of the Atlanta Braves, and newGst member of the Business Participa tion Panel; and Mr. Robert C. Hatkins, newest member of the Construction and Design Panel. Mr. Al exander praised th§ persistant efforts of the developers in the face of so many problems and roadblocks. He stated that the City of Atlanta owes the developers a great debt for their contribution to this program. Demi Jackson brought up the ques tion "Who is r esponsible for physical s tructures in terms of r e creational or social needs in a housing development? Is this the responsibility of the developer?" Mr. Alexander stated that on the National scene, the Community is responsible. Mr. Jones expl ained th.:it in Public Housing pr oj e cts , Federal regulntions require certain consideration be given to open space and recreational faciliti es . He pointed out that t hi s wa s also given consideration by the Planning Department in regards to zoning; that the Planning Board its elf has turned down projects tha t did not provide enough spa ce or recreational facilities. He stated that the social elements were being given more consideration today than ever before. Mr. Alexander commented that there is c gap tn social services to be performed in low income housing proj e cts and suggested that the Community Council and non-profit groups such ns Interfaith may fill tho gap of social planning. He asked for a report from Dean Jackson's Committee Fl.S to proposals for social planning in low income housing. YJr. Palmer mentioned that there was t l,000 set aside to see how practical it would be to bring available recreational activitie s to Senior Citizens • . �6 Mr. Alexander stated that according to our figures, Public Housing is running behind schedule and asked for any suggestions that might be helpful. Nr. Persells said this .-ms definitely not because of lack of interest on the part of developers, but the difficulty of obtaining a piece of land to present that is properly zoned. He stated that a project should not be selfcontninod, but be part of a whole community; that recreational facilities should be available to entire neighborhoods. Mr. Alexander announced that he would appoint a Comnri.ttee of three to study the "Analysis of Atlanta's Low-income Housing Program," dated February 7, 1968, which would make· a report of recommendations back to the Executive Group. Mr. Alexander mentioned that package rezoning is still under consideration. He stated that one of the problems is so much land in this area that could be developed in this program that might receive favorable recommendation by HUD, but be politically opposed by others. · Mr. Moore asked if there was any way to subsidize, such as limited dividend? Mr. Alexander stated that John Steinichen of Interfaith was looking for proposals. Mr. Palmer asked if anyone had tried to get the land in the Southwest quadrant that is artificially overzoned industrial, rezoned for a more reasonable price? Mr. Moore stated tha t on one particular site, Mr. Shuttleworth would probably recommend multi-family. The price on this land has come up to industrial, He also stated that in certain Wards, 221 d ()) houses are not allowed because of opposition from Aldermen in those Wards• Meeting adjourned a t 11:30 a.m, Respectfully SUbmitted, a-lA-'"~14~~-~:..U..rl2_./ Malcolm D.

Other Businesa �A RESOLUTION The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, through the work of the Chamber's Housing and Redevelopment Committee, has supported vigorously from the outset the efforts of the Mayor's Housing Resources Committee to relieve the city's shortage of housing for low income families. As a result of its investigation of this problem, the Housing and Redevelopment Committee delivered to this Board in August, 1967 a report entitled "The Low-Rent Housing Gap in Atlanta," which included specific information underlining the critical nature of the housing need. This Board was informed by the report that the process of rezoning land suitable and feasible for multi-family, low-rent housing appears to be the single most difficult obstacle in the task of providing, during a five-year period, some 16,800 units of the type hoµsing required. The Board also was made aware that available vacant land is scarce within the City of Atlanta for any use , and outlying areas have not seen fit to qualify for programs which allow construction of federally-insured housing of the type which would help meet the current need. · A resolution by this Board in September , 1967 urged immediate steps by the City of Atlanta Planning Department and the Board of Aldermen to adopt an updated • land use plan, from which a new zoning ordinance could be evolved . The resolution further declared: " ... Any new zoning plan adopted by the City of Atlanta should make provision for adequate land for multi-family housing and open up land for increased density of housing in all quadrants of the city, in order to serve the best interests of a changing and progressive City of Atlanta." Since that time, diligent study has been given by the Atlanta Chamber of Comm erce to a proposed "package zoning plan, " the purpose of which would be to rezone simultaneously several sites of land throughout the city for development in public housi ng . Be it resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors reiterates its position in support of dispersing multi-family housing to all quadrants of the city. iff'()weve1- ;-n-eithe1 • thts"'Boai'd"'fl QUS~cl R-ede V ~l.bi,flB'iffi,a,1;-4ee beJJ.a sir.able feasi:bi h-e: -rd.r~mtai ehamb·EIDrot-.<:,; pro.iii ·te:s 0 And be it fur ther resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Director s supports the principle of the package z oning proposal as an approach well wor th considering toward the efforts to alleviate this serious problem in our community.

EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant MRS. ANN M. MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison From: Mal colm D. Jones Considerable thought and effort has gone into development of the attached Analysis of Atlanta 's Low-income Housing Program. From experience gained during the f irst year of the program, I am convinced that current policy and procedures are inadequate to meet requirements of the program; and if the program is to succeed, some changes will have to be made. The attached Analysis proposes adoption of ten (10) changes from current pro cedure, none of whi ch ~ rash or radical, and I believe that each of the recommended changes would make a worthwhile contribution to the overall eff ort. I would like for this Analysis to be considered by you, the Mayor and the Housing Resources Committee (I have a copy for both Cecil Alexander and the Mayor). I intend to suggest to Cecil that this Analysis be taken up with the Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committee and, if f avorably considered, that a formal recommendation for its implementation be made by the Committee to the Mayor. Sincerely, Mal colm D. Jones Housing Coordinator Encl: Analysis �HOUSING RESOUR CES COMMITTEE February 7, 1968 An Analysi e of Atlanta ' s Low-income Hous ine Program and Proposed Procedures for Its Improvement Although the most recent report (copy attached) of the Housing Resources Committee on t he status of the Low-income Housing Program shows good progress t o dat e , the cream has already been skimmed· from the initial potential and prospects f or the future of the program look extremely dim. This analysis is lengthy but is justified by the gravity of the current s ituation and the necessity for adequately explaining each of the features proposed herein. There is no need to dwell here on the major problem areas involved such as neighborhood objections, zoning, Federal policy, funding, etc., as we all are quite familiar with them. The resulting effect however is very disturbing. Substantial land promoters, developers, and builders on _whom we must rely for actual developments are losing interest in the proeram and are directing their major efforts elsewhere. and in other fields not involved with the difficulties encountered locally in attempted production of low-income housing. Without their continued active participation it will be extremely difficult to meet the alre ady established goals for the program (and it 'now appears that even t hese goals may not be adequate ). Our policy to date has been to follow prevailing established procedures by depending on the land promoters and developers to select the sites, take options on the land, attempt to get it rezoned if require~ and then develop the site. This procedure places t he entire initiative on private enterprise and l eaves in their hands primary responsibility for overcoming neighborhood objections and pol itical resistan ce. work. This is good, if it works, but f r equently i t does not This also habitually places the City in a vulnerable defensive and embar- rassing position, if the efforts of ·private enterprise do 'not succeed, and discourases other developers. if This is happenin~ entirely too of ten for continuation of a healthy progressive program which is sorely needed in Atlanta. �2 Instance after instance can be cited where the above has occurred. Some of the more prominent specific cases which have suffered or failed under this policy are: Browntown, Butler Street YMCA, Sewell Road, Browns Mill Road, Empire Drive., Golfview, Wilson Mill Road, East Lake #2 and Wellswood Apartments sites. (The last one was considered under the leasing progTam.) In fact, most of the 8,266 units proposed, which did not materialize (see Note A of Low-income Housing Invento:::-y Report of January 15) can be attribu:ted to strong objections from one or more groups under our current private enterprise sponsored, hit or miss, development procedure. The availability of land, one of the critical elements, which can be obtained at prices developers can afford to pay and still make a profit from their venture, is rapidly becoming a vital issue within the City limits of Atlanta. This factor a],one is primarily responsible for the lack of current development in single family sales housing for •low and moderate income families, although there is a great demand and substantial market for this category of housing in Atlanta. The rapid growth of the City and phenomenal rate of new construction is fast limiting the desirable sites on which low-income housing can be located in Atlanta, from both an economic and public relations standpoint. It is evident that in the past the procedure of letting nature take its course by depending entirely on private enterprise to initiate propos ed locations for lowincome housing and then carry the ball on obtaining the necessary approvals and zoning changes, is not adequate to insure success of the Low-income Housing Program • .. This is particularly true of Turnkey sites for Public Housing. A few specific examples clearly illustrate this: (a) Attempted rezoning of the Browntown site for 450 units under the Turnkey program has been delayed until July 1, 1968 for further consideration at that time as to positive provisions for the timely construction of essential community facilities, one of which is an Elementary School to be built on the project to serve i t and another anticipated low-income housing proj eC} in the same general area . In anticipation of the rezoning it was understood that the School Department would place this school in top priority on its proposed bond issue for the Spring of 1968. However, since the r ezoning last fall did not go throueh when expected and has been definitely delayed until at least July 1968, the School Department has now changed its priorities so as to accommodate those projects which are already' definitely approved, under cons truction or where plans for early �3 development are actually pro6Tessine satisfactorily. Department's position is justified and understandable. This chanee in the School However, as far as this' particular school is concerned, it does not bring the Browntown site any nearer to fruition. It is also likely that plans for improved sewer facilities for this area will not have a~ high priority as would have been the case, if the proposed zoning had already been approved. (b) A similar situation also applies to the Butler Street YMCA site on Hollywood Road in the same general area and which is equally dependent on the proposed Elementary School discussed above and improved sewer faciliti es. (c) The Sewell Road project is a typical example of an excellently planned and designed Turnkey project for Public Housing which was well located and adequately isolated and screened, but which went "by the board" as a result of pressure of public opinion from the neighborhood. (d) Another instance is the requested rezoning for a proposed 221 d (3) project on an excellent site on Wilson Mill Road,. immediately across from a developed City park, and where other adequate community fac~lities exist. It received an adverse recommendation from the Planning Board, supported by a recommendation of the Planning staff, because of anticipated objection from residents of the neighborhood. (e) One well known out of town developer, highly recommended by FHA, after having to give up three proposed developments in DeKalb County because of DeKalb's lapse of its Workable Program, subsequently filed applications with FHA for three substantial projects -in Atlanta under the 221 d (3) program. applications were later withdrawn. All three It is understood that two were withdrawn because of neighborhood resentment, which he experienced early, and anticipated rezoning difficulties. The third proposed project, for which the site was already zo~ed appropriately, was given up primarily because of high land costs and partially _because of anti cipated neighborhood resentment, plus economic problems encountered in trying to design and develop a creditable proj e ct which would overcome the other difficulties. The foregoing are typical illustrations why previous us ed and long established procedure is not working adequately for the Low-income Housing Program. The success of this program is as important to the future well being of Atlanta as the School, Sewer, Traffic, or Parks programs and should be approached with the same considerate deliberation and coordinated planning as has been found necess ary and which is currently being pursued in other City programs. �4 After careful consideration of the foregoing factors and based on experience with low- income housinp, i n Atlanta f or s everal years, i t appear3 that some new pr ocedures are practical and would be helpful. However, dilligent effort will continue t o be made under the current procedure, until it is changed. Recommend that the followinc additional procedures be adopted as soon as pos sible: 1. Written recommendation from the Mayor to the local Director of F1iA that t he maximum limits for FHA mortgage insurance under the 221 d (2) program in the Atlanta area be increased from the current $12,500 to $15,000; to compensate for .increased cost of land and construction since the present ceiling was established several years ago. (This should provide additional flexibility and incentive to builders to construct and market single family sales housing in Atlanta under the 221 d (2) program. Acti vi t:r in this field has been quite dormant since the Low-income Housine Program started. It is one of the most needed categories, for which there is a strong demand and adequate market. Home o,mership should be encouraged when- ever possible, as it is one of the most stabilizing factors for low and moderate income families). 2. To supplement the above, adopt an additional Single Family Dwelling Zoning District in Atlanta, to permit erection of dwellings havine a minimum of 720 square feet floor area, on minimum size lots of S,000 square feet and with minimum f rontgage of so•. Similar proposals have been previously made to the Administrative Assistant and to the Director of Planningw (This would permit an increase of 50%in house f or which the currently applicable R-5 current density of the 221 vari ety zoning district requires ·7, 500 square feet of lot area, 810 square feet minimum floor area and a minimum frontgage of 60 1 • This additional zoning• district would provide ample land area for houses in this category and i n the price range of the 221 d (2) program). J. Request HUD to modify its current FHA policy by per mitting mort gage i nsurance under its FHA 221 insured mortga ge proerarn in areas which do not now have certi fied Workable Programs, when Sl.lch developments will serve to alleviate unsatisfactory and overcrowded housing condi t i ons in areas such a s Atlant a which do have certi fied Workable Programs in ef fect. (Although t he purpose of the current restrictive Federal policy in those areas was well intenti oned and expected to s erve as an _.incentive to t hose areas t o es t ablish �5 Workable Programs, the actual r esul ts have boomer anged by excluding cons truction under this type financi ng fr om nei ghbor ing areas (which inci dentally are apparently desirous of having it excluded) and thereby placing incr eased low-income housing burdens on comrrrunities , such as Atlanta, which do have Workable ProGrams). 4. Modi fy the current Zonin g Ordinance to permit structural changes in non-conforming residential dwellings in other zoning districts, when ne ce::,sary in order to meet requi r ements of the Housing Code. 'lj·, (This is no't permi tted now and serves to perpetuate unsatis f actory and substandard hous ing conditions in many areas of the City, which :i.n the past have been premat urely zoned for uses other than residential and which will probably continue to be so used f or the foreseeable future. In many of these areas improvement i s stagnating because of the f act that existing residential buildings cannot be s tructurally altered and if demolished another can not be built in its place , plus the past difficul y of obtaining financing in these areas for housing improvements, due partially to the zoning restrictions, and of the problem of private enterprise in assembling tracts in thes~ areas of sufficient size and price to justify substantial development). 5. As a companion measure to the above, eliminate from the Housing Code Enforcement Map and Policy and Procedur e Guide all so called 11 Clearance - Code Enforcement 11 Area classification and place all of these areas in top priority for strict Housing Code Enf'orcement on a house-by-house basis, except where formal application has been submitted for a Federal assisted project for th e area or other planned development is eminent.( Although some modification was made during 1967 in Housing Code Enforcement policy, t he current policy in these areas of which there are many in the City, for pract ical purposes is still essentially one of containment, in that Code .Enforcement in t hese areas consists of: (a) Pl a card where warranted and seek demolition (b) Cor r ect hazzards (c) Reduce overcrowding (d ) Vacate unfit units (e) Clean up premises . Under existing policy, there is _no specif ic requir ement or priori ty i n t hese areas , which contai n much of the wors t housing i n t he City, for bri neing all dwelling units into strict compliance with the Housine Code .) �6 (Furthermore, the theory of clearing such areas throueh Housing Code Enforcement is a fallacy and is a long drawn out, impracticable as well as unprofitable procedure, in that the Housing Code is not, and never was intended to be, a punitive or clearance weapon, but rather a tool to encourage, improvement and with which to maintain good standard housing conditions throughout the entire City. . The so called \ "Clearance-Code Enforcement" areas are extremely difficult to operate in and have been generally neglected in interest of obtaining more compliances in less difficult areas where violations are less serious and compliance is much easier to obtain. Early improvement of substandard conditions in existing housing in these worst areas would materially relieve the long range burden on the Housing Resources Committee of providing adequate new standard units for many low-income families, for which the existing housing in many instances in these areas could be made adequate.) (The financial burden or even hardship, on the owners ' of these properties for bringing them in ' to compliance with the Hou~ing Code would be no greater than it is now and has been in other areas of the City, where the Code is being strictly enforced on a house-by-house basis.) 6. Modify existing local building codes to permit erection of prefab residential construction, to incluae preassembled plumbing, electrical, and heat facilities, when it has been-determined that the materials and workmanship are satisfactory and can be inspected during assembly at the factory. (The application of assembly line procedures and techniques to mass production of low-income housing is as essential today as the assembly line procedure has been - to the automobile, major elect.;rical appliances, prefabricated kitchen cabinets and other similar products, if we are going to meet the current day.' s needs in low-income housing.) 7. Encourage prompt formation of a Non-profit Housing Development Corporation, I having a city-wide scope of operation, to assist development of low-income housing. Such a corporation could provide much needed seed money on a loan basis to local neighborhood non-profi t sponsors; bank land f or future low-income housing projects; and lend technical and other assistance in promotion of low-income housing developments. (The formation of such a corporation ·i s well under way through the efforts of the Finance and Non-profit Funds Panel of the Housins Resources Committee . Thia corporation ia much needed in Atlanta now. A revolvins fund in the nei ghborhood �7 of 1-1½ million dollars could probably be procured through loans of perhaps ten year durat ion from Private Enterpris e at low interest rates, with principal re-' payable as available. This money would serve to finance activities of the Corporation on a r evolvi ng basis, in a manner similar to procedure which is being success.fully used in Hartford, Connecticut and several other cities.) 8. And almost l ast but not least, recorrrrnend that suitable sites be carefully selected j ointly by the Housing Resources Committee and the Planning Department, in all f our geographical quadrants of the City (not necessarily· equal dist ribution) sufficient in number and size to bring the current Low-income Housing Program up to 20,000 units; that each of these sites be earmarked for Public Housing under t he Turnkey or conventional program, housing under the FHA 221 insured mortgage program or conventionally financed similar priced construction; and that special effort be made to rezone these sites simultaneously in one package; with the help of wide-spread, well placed and care.fully selected public support and on the conditi on that low-income housing will eventually be constructed on these sites when adequate community facilities will be available. The plan should include several areas f or a reasonable number of single family sales houses. ( It is believed t hat this approach can be successful, if careful a t t ention is given to selecting sites which will serve the intended purpose, but which are most l i kely to be the least controversial (omitting those which are obviously likely to arouse strong community resentment). This procedure has recent ly been r esorted to in New Orleans f or Public Housing , after s i te s electi on by private enterprise f ailed. This would spread the locations- and not concentrate the bulk of such housing on two or three sites which are likely to be particularly controversial, and on which it would not be wise to concentrate l arge numbers of low-income f amilies , even {f appropriate zoning could be obtained.) (There are suff ic1ent sites in the former category. Many of these sites , if appropriat ely developed, would excell ently serve the needs of low-income .famil ies and at the same time would 'materially improve the areas involved. In sever al instances t hese are areas in which l ow-income famil~es already r eside and will probably continue t o do so for a l ong time , but i n which current densities can be increased and the environment improved .) (Still, other areas to be consi dered should be those located where nice well planned low-income housing devel opments would improve the area, shoul d pr omote a mininrum of cri ticism from the res idents of the communit y and l ocat ions that are not l ikely to be developed in the near future for bet ter or higher use . �8 In some instances however , this will require modification of current policies and thinking of some planners as to zoning classifications for such locations, by permitting a mixture of uses in the general areas involved rather than continuation of all single family Residential or all Industrial or Cornmerciai as the case may be.) 9. When the proposed reZPning of suggested sites is accomplished, then concentrate on coordination of all Departments and Agencies involved in planning for the proposed developments to provide necessary Community facilities ~imultaneously with scheduled development of the low-income housing. This is possible and offers the best opportunity for getting what is needed in the nature of Community Facilities at the time it is needed to serve the proposed developments. Two good examples of where such coordination efforts have recently worked successfully are: (a) The arrangements made for extension of Cleveland Avenue to serve the proposed Golfview development project; and (b) The compromise recently worked out satisfactorily between the developers and the Water Pollution Control Division for sewer service at an extremely early date for the proposed Bankhead Highway Turnkey project. 10. In order to speed up development on land in Urban Renewal projects sold to developers, recommend that the period allowed between award on bids and beginning of actual construction be reduced from the current permissive time of one year. · It appears that 6-9 months should be ample. (Examples of disturbing delay are the Ebenezer Baptist Church project and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the Rockdale project; whereas planning for the Friendship Baptist Church pr0ject is much further along, which illustrates that others could do likewise.) All of the above explained procedures are believed to be feasible and if adopted should insure completion of the established goals in the Low-income Housing Program within the time alloted and with a minimum of difficulty and disagreement between I those involved in accomplishing the Program.

This area covers 277 acres of land and originally contained 356 residential structures, 67% of which were substandard, that housed 402 families. The area was marked by unpaved streets, dilapidated structures, lack of park and playground facilities, overcrowded school, and inadequate utilities. Since entering a Loan and Grant Contract with the Federa l Government on July 10, 1959, the Atlanta Housing Authority has completed acquisition of 453 parcels of land, relocated 283 families, 26 individuals, and 19 businesses, and demolished 302 structures. . The Authority has compl eted contracts for roads, sidewalks, and sewers • In addition,the Authority has sold 314 single-family lots, on which 222 dwelling units have been complet ed , and construction started on 92 units, 69 lots r ema in to be sold. 350 public housing units are pr oposed north of McDonough Road . Bids for the construction of these units will be let on March 1, 1968, with an estimated completion date of construction in September, 1970. The urban renewal plan also propos es six church site s and a 10-acre commercial tract. The Thoma sville Urban Renewal Area is fast becoming 3 madel residential neighbor hood, with paved streets, sidewa l ks , fine home~ , parks und er development, new el ement ary schools .o2oe.i, and provision for chur ches and a shopping center. The Federa l Government has recently announc ed that approximately 95 acres of land will be given to the City to provid e additi.onal housing for f amil i es of low and mode r ate income.

Gladin Department of Planning City Hall Atlanta, Gergia Dear Collier: The progress with the package plan has been good and I congratulate you, Johnny and your staff on the work. I would like to point out that one of the areas selected is, in my opinion, so very controversial that it will endanger the entire concept . This i s the ball park site . It seems to me that no public housmng per se should be included in this area - that it should be a mix of commercial, some 221 D-3 and conventionally financed. The placement of the 221 D-3 should be carefully arranged so that they will be buffered from the surrounding residential area. As you know there has been a strong effort to maintain the residential patterns north of Ponce de Leon · and this proposal will fly in the face of the most strenuous opposition. Please give this your consideration. Sincerely , _Cecil A. Alexander vb cc: .

The following invited participants attended the meeting: Mr. Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman Alderman John M. Flanigen, Chairman, Zoning Committee Mr. Collier B. Gladin, Director of Planning Mr. Howard Op)enshaw, Director of Redevelopment, Housing Authority, representing Mr. Lester A. Persells Mr. Gilbert Boggs, Direc~or of Public Housing, Housing Authority, representing Mr. Edwin L. Sterne Mr. Ralph Johnson, Chief Underwriter, FHA, representing Mr. John A. Thigpen Mr. Robert L. Sommerville, Olairman, CACUR Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr., Director of Governmental Liaison Alderman Rodney M. Cook, Chairman, Planning and Development Committee, Mr. Jim Crawford, Chairman, Atlanta-.F 'ulton County Joint Planning Board, and Dr. Vivian Henderson, Acting Chairman, Land Acquisition Panel, Housing Resources Committee, did not attend. Additional guests included Mr. William S. Howland, Executive Director, Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal, Mr. Al Roland,- Chief Appraiser, FHA, and several members of the press. Chairman Alexander presided. Mr. Alexander opened the meeting by explaining its general purpose i.e. to provide an opportunity for key individuals involved with low-income housing in the City to get together, compare notes, and exchange ideas with view to accomplishing more effective coordination. He advised that over all prospects are good for finalizing establishment of a City of Atlanta non-profit Housing Development Corporation, being sponsored by Mr. Lee Burge's committee, which, am0ng other things, might: �2 (1) Provide seed money to local neighborhood non-profit organizations. (2) Bank land for future low-income housing developments. (3) Assist in sustaining neighborhoods; and (4) Although officially limited to housing activities within the City limits, we hope eventually to involve the metropolitan area. Mr. Alexander then told about a non-profit organization that had recently formed, called Interfaith Inc., consisting of Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian and Unitarian churches, in which John Steinichen is the moving force. He urged that this group be given full cooperation by all concerned with low-income housing. Mr. Alexander then referred to the ten point s he had specifically mentioned at the December 14, Annual Meeting of the Housing Resources c.ommittee (included in the minutes) and announced that the Housing Resources Committee is interested in ~etting housing in all sections of the City. He then proceeded to raise a variety of points for discussion and called upon various participants for their views and comments on specific items. The discussion which followed was healthy and tended to pinpoint sane of the under-lying features which contribute to the difficulty encountered in meeting the City's goals for low-income housing, These all seemed to stem from the following factors, which evolved as the essence of the meeting: (a) Lack of any one body or individual empcn,ered to make top level policy decisions essential to the program and to see that they are carried out effectively, (The structural organization of the City, in this as in other fields, appears to be the primary cause. ) (b) Breakdown in communications and inadequate coordination of efforts of various Departments and Agencies involved in the program for carrying out a general plan to meet a specific time schedule , (c) The necessity for establishment of definite time schedules for matt ers essential to the low-income housing program~ For example: establishment of supporting community facilities; .wditional proposed Urban Renewal Projects; initiation of devel,opment of some units in areas already known to require l~i:QCOme housing, such as in Vine City and the Model Qi.ties area, even though . complete requirements and all specific locati~ .may not yet be determined. �3, Mr. Gladin was called upon to comment on the Model Cities Project. He discussed how his Department is trying to tie in housing requirements for five years with the Bedford-Pine and Model Cities areas; that exact housing r equirements for the Model Cities area are not yet known; that planning funds in the amount of $172,000 have been made available, whereas $500,000 was requested; that new housing in the Model Cities area is several years off, with the possible exception of the proposed Stadium site; that we have always had to wait until we could get into an area before any actual new housing could be built; that if we could get someone interested in the Stadium site , four decks of parking could be built between Capitol and Frazier Streets, South of Fulton, and development of a platform for housing above this; that the Zoning Committee has suggested that applications for re-zoning in the Model Cities area be held up for six months; that "we" are trying to work out Housing Code enforcement policy in the area during the next six months; that the planning stage covers twelve months from November 15, 1967; that a r evised work program proposal is being considered today; that the next deadline is May 1 for determining of types of treatment needed; the time from then to September 15 will be devoted to detailing (application due in to HUD t hen); HUD to review by October 15; that November 1 is the deadline for utilization of the first year's allocation of planning funds; that we should have an indication by the first of March of what our first year's development allocation will be; that initial development should be in areas similar to Hill Street and Grant Park that are substantial and which are not likely to change very much; that citizen participation is being emphasized; that citizens shouldn't feel that a plan has already been developed before they have a chance t o indicate their desires. Mr . Alexander expressed hope that there will be a positive effor t mad~ in accordance with t he plans developed by t he proj e ct Executive Committ ee, to invit e developer s to s ee the land that i s to be used for apartments, etc. Mr. Alexander then explained the proposal of attempting to locate Turnkey developments in s everal areas of the City and express ed hope that t he Hous i ng Author ity woul d make a posi tive effor t toward l ocating some of t he Publ ic Housing required. Mr. Gladin s t at ed that his Department is t rying t o come up with a pr oposal of perhaps t en sites f or Turnkey t o mee t our total r equirements and on which to get allo cations for the r emainder of the five - year progr am. He pointed out t hat we need a package proposal f or getting our total r equirements . Mr. Boggs stated that Public Housing may be pla ced in Ur ban Renewal projects, in t hose areas which the Hous i ng Authority owns the l and. Mr. J ones stated t ha t i n order t o get start ed earl y on additional housing in the Model Cities area we could a s sume that there is need for some Public Housing in the area and that perhaps some areas could be selected �now and started on, even if we do not yet know the total requirements; that it can be anticipated when so many people are to be dislocated, a certain percentage of them would need Public Housing. Mr. Alexander stated that there is apparently little use being made of Limited Dividend. Mr. Johnson said FHA has several projects under construction and others being considered. He cited Gartrell Court, College Plaz~, and Park West 1, 2, and 3, as examples. He also stated that there is a $32 million unused allotment in the Rent Supplement program plus $10 million additional and also. a $1 billion fund has been allocated by insurance companies for Rent Supplement and similar loans; that s everal Rent Supplements are under consideration in the area (one is in Marietta and four in Metropolitan Atlanta). One Atlanta Rent Supplement project is now under construction. Mr. Johnson said that FHA will consider row-type housing under 221 d (2) mortgages, if separate real estate entities exist. With respect to a suggestion that 11 Economix11 be used, Mr. Sommerville said he feels that "Econ.omix" will not work except in certain residential areas. Mr. Jones stated that an example of what he thought would work is townhouses which might be built in certain r esidential areas and cited as an example a 12-14 a cre tract in r ear of existing single family houses constructed on very deep lots in an R-5 area, on which he sugges t ed townhouses might be built; and that there are many other similar areas in the City which are not now serving any useful purpose and might be developed in this manner. Mr. Johnson said this is what he was talking about when he mentioned that FHA would insure row-housing under 221d (2) ; that the two main probl ems are getting the neighbors to agree to apartments being built and getting the land re-zoned for higher density.• Mr. Alexander asked if FHA foreclosure properties could be obtained and whether t he Housing Authorities could .run ads for such? Mr. Boggs said this could be don0 , but hasn't been tried here, that the Housing Authority is negotiating for l easing; 162 units have already been leased and that an additional 175 units are about to be leased. Mr. Alexander s t ated t hat some way should be set up whereby the developers could build public facilities such as schools, outfall s ewers, etc,., if needed to serve proposed developments, and lease them to the City until such time as the City is in a position to acquire them.• �s Mr. Sommerville comtnented that School Superintendent Letson said this is not legal in Georgia. Mr. Alexander stated that if this a good approach, perhaps the Georgia law should be modified; that if neighborhoods and cities could become interested in getting schools built , inadequate schools would not be a problem when new housing developments are built. Mr. Alexander expressed a desire for the School Department to be repres ented at the next meeting. Ya-, Jones advised that Dr. Womack of the School Department gets a copy of the Low-income Housing Inventory r eports every 60 days, but the problem is that by the time the propos ed locations get on the report, if the f acilities are not already provided for, it is usually too late. Mr . Sommerville asked if Georgia school funds could not be ~sed? The answer was not readily availableMr . Alexander s aid that Federal funds may be available for leases in t hese s ituations, as an e couragement to builders , and have been used i n other parts of the country; that the School Department would eventual ly buy the s cho.o ls • Mr . Alexander then asked wher e Vine City now stands in terms of the ef f ort t p ge t the Vine City Urban Re newal Project under way and if funds are avai lable ? Mr. Gladin said t hey have or ganized a communi ty group r ecogniz ed by the City. A r epor t i s being made by the City along with the group ; t hat an Ur ban Renewal Project is required to all eviat e problems in the Vine Ci t y area; t hat the s chool whi ch is under development there would give the City the l argest capital improvement credit to be used in meeting the City's one-third share of' t he cost of an Ur ban Renewal Pr oject; t .h at we have only about three years left in whi ch to take credi t f or thi s f acilit y, Mr. Alexander expres sed t he opi nion that t he City needs a t ime-table to get rid of the worst areas throughout t he City. Mr. Gladin admitted that the Nash-Bans Project is dragging; t hat SO% of his staff will soon go to the Model Cities Project; that the Planning and Development Committee should come back and ask the citizens what they want, or tell them that they should be willing to go along with an Urban Renewal plan to be developed by the Ci:t,y. Mr. Alexander then asked if this did not essentially resolve itself to responsibility of Mr-t Cook's Committee? Mr~ Gladin agreed that it did. �6 - Mr. Flanigen then asked why is there so much delay on all Urban Renewal Projects? Mr~ Gladin explained that delay in the Vine City area was caused by an attempt to involve people in the community; that we are waiting for them to docide what they want. Mr~ Alexander again emphasized the necessity for deadlines in planning and stated that he felt the City should move on its principal proposed projects in accordance with a time schedule; that it is well to involve people in the area, but they should be given a time limit for coming up with their proposals and if they did not meet that schedule, the City should go ahead and develop -plans and submit its own plan for the Urban Renewal Project; that if we are to eliminate slums, at some point the City must move into its worst areas, Mr. Boggs said authorizations by City government for Public Housing b another problem; and that federal funds can now only be used in an areaif there is housing and employment for the poor. Mr, Oppenshaw said that Federal funds are limited and that timing of submittal of projocJ;_ npplic~tion8 is all.inPortn.nt; that every Urbe.n RenewaJ. Project in Atlanta has been amended and that takes additional time. He then quoted figures as to the number of Public Housing units under construction and planned for Urban Renewal Projects, Mr. Johnson said that the Rockdale project now has an FHA commitment for 600 units; that FHA has reviewed the ( Central) Methodist Church plan md is ready to approve it; that the Ebenezer Church program is dragging; that according to the Housing Resources Committee Annual Report, the FHA 221 program is the furtherest advanced in meeting the City 's goals. Mr, Jones confirmed this. The question was raised about the slowness in getting housing started on some of the Renewal land sites. Mr. Oppenshaw said he had recently written to Mr. Rosen about this with respect to t he Rockdale Project. Mr. Alexander agreed to write a letter to Mr. Robinson about the Ebenezer Church project and also Mr. Rosen. Mr. Alexander proposed a Workshop t;, which developers and involved groups would be invited, to explain how we suggest developing this program, what we have available, etc. and that key Department Heads should also be invited. Ha asked for opinions as to this idea. Mr. Jones responded that he thought this might be very benificial. �7 In summary, the necessityfor over-all decision making; timing; and authority and res ponsibility for following through to get things done was the essence of the meeting.

The HJlC observed that almost all urban renewal land on which low-cost housing might be built already has been committed. Most other sites zoned for rnull.i-family use already are be ing used fo r that pu rpose or are prohibitively expensive . And yet there is reasonably priced vacant land in the city. It 1s zoned for other purposes, howeve r. This i.ndicrtt.es ," said HRC's annu al report, "that the bulk of remaining land needed for the program will have lo depend on rezoning of appropriate tracts for this purpose." • And there's the nib. Aldermen have been notably reluctant to rezone for housing for the poor-unless the site were in someone else's ward. In its repor t, the Housing Resources Commi ttee out! ined a broad-spectrum attack on sl ums, utilizing "turnkey," 22l and other privately developed projects; vigorous rehabilitation programs, leasing of privately owned bu tld ings by the Atlanta Housing Authority, add itional urban renewal, and close intergovernmental cooperation. A key and controversial recommendation ~: �January 17, 1968 MEMORANDU11 FOR RECORD Pursuant to instructions this date from Mayor Allen, I called a me eting at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon between representatives of the Developers of the Bankhead Turnkey site, their architects, the Housing Authority and the Water Pollution Control Division in an eff ort to resolve the sewer problem. pertaining to this site which was raised in a letter of January 12, 1968 to Mayor Allen .f'rom Sheetz and Bradfield, architects for the project. The following attended the meeting: :Vir. Jack Jones, Hr. McLauren and Mr. W. D. McGrath, H. L. Gobel Construction Company, Greensboro, N.C., Mr. Richard H. Bradfield, A.I.A., and Hr. Hatt Welsh, Sheetz and Bradfield Architects, Inc., Mr. M. B. Satter.field, Housing Authority, Mr. Robert H. i-Torriss and Mr. Raymond Adair, Water Pollution. Control Division. After explaining the purpose of the meeting (to try to arrive at a mutually acceptable plan for resolving the sewer problem in connection with this project) Mr . Morriss was called upon to present a proposal which he had made pertaining to this matter substantially as contained in his memorandum January 16, 1968 to Mayor Allen. Mr. Morriss also explained several other details related to this project involving requir ements of his Division. Mr. Morriss also explained that his proposal is subject to approval by the Public Works Cormnittee of the Board of Aldermen, but that the City's portion of the cost involved would come within his budget and that he had no reason to believe that it would not be approved by the Public Works Committee. I then asked Mr. Bradfield, Mr. Jones and Mr. Satterfield separately i f they were agreeable to the proposal presented by Mr. Morriss. They all said t hey were and agreed to work closely with :Vir. Morriss' Division in developing the preliminary and final plans (in so far as the Water Pollution Control Division is concerned) for the project. Mr . Bradfield asked for confirmation in writing from Mr. Morriss of his proposal and inquired when could he get such. Mr . Morriss replied t hat he would provide Hr. Bradfield with a written statement of his proposal, including a sketch of t he area 1whi ch was used during t he mee ting 1 and that he would get this out t omorrow. He also agreed t o provide me with a copy.

It tentatively approved an increase from $1,500 to $3,000 in the maximum renabilitation grant for lowincome home owners, compared with an increase to $2,500 as proposed by the Administration and approved by the Senate.
