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

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

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

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

Smith, Chief Housing Inspecto:~ A Subject: Weekly lists of families certified for Pub l,i'c Housing. I. ,<, . Several days ago a system was instigated whereby we would receive weekly lists from A.H.A., and we would go out immediately to inspect the property unless we already had an active case in our files on the par ticular property. The first "batch" has been checked out and a list is attached, which gives a synopsis -by Housing Supervisor Eidson of rema rks as reported to him by th e Housing Inspectors; also of the a ction be ing taken. Attached is a copy of the ·A.H.A. lists fur~ished us. My observation is that it has generally resulted in very little gain for the effort involved as f ar as correcting housing conditions within the City. It also seems that just about anyone who wishes to live in Public Housing is eligible, if they say so! I am continuing to check out th e se lists for Housing Code violations as directed, and will report to you as they are checked out. JAS:lm Enclo s ure ATLANTA THE D OG WOO D CITY �

Before Atlanta can proceed with e:-,,.,-panded code enforcement and urban r enewal activities it must increase its lo·,ri n come hous in~ s t ock . In addit ion, an aff irmative relocation program f or Atlanta must include chanees in orJanization, procedures , and policies .appropriate to the findi ngs of Section One of t his report. Section One shows the need for a definite syst~~ of low-to-moderat e income housing planning which will provide replacement housing at t he time of disolacement. It also reveals the need for overall coordination of community development efforts; better record keeping and data use; improved timing of relocat ion counseling services and survey; improved use ofex:isting r elocation resour ces ; and an improved policy of local initiative in providing l ocal assi stance to displacees when such aid is not available through existing progr ams. The f ollowing recommendations have been devised to meet the needs outlined. T'ney are presented in t wo categories: (1) recommendations of an interim nature f or immediate act ion to alleviate the present low-income housine shortar;e, and (2 ) re commendations on orgnnization, procedure , and policies considered necessary for effe ct ive long ranee r elocation and r elocation housing planning. Recma~cndation 3 That a Housing Resources Bureau be established a s a major division within t he pr oposed Community Development Department r ecommended as a part of th e r e organization pl an of the "Government of the Ci t y of Atlanta - A Survey Report" by t he Public Administration Servi ce • );; ;; i: •;: ~:: + • :· . :~ .. . . ' .. �- - ------ C 2 It is the intent of t his re commendation that "Hous ing Plannine" be elevated to a posi tion never before a chieved i n Atlant a a s a highly technical entity with its own staff. Responsibili ty would be broadly bas ed and not narrowly confined to urban renewal obj ect ives. The major activity would be the plannine of housine resources t hrough research for all t ypes of displa cement and relocation needs; therefore, t his new t e chnical division could be called - for lack of a better name - "Housing Resources Bureau". The proposed Housing Resources Bureau shoul d have as its hea d an as s istant to the Community Development Department Director. It should be staffed with capable, inf ormed economic analysts and planner~ with demonstrated knowledge of t he housing i ndustry~ the community, and t he local housing market. This new governmental agency would have the following responsibilities: A. Research Maintain a continuous inventory of hous ing in the City of Atlanta by size of unit, whet her f or sale or rent, condition of unit, type of unit compared to signi fi cant rent/cost ranges, and specific location. In addition, the Housing Resources Bureau would retain sufficient data on the characteristics of t he low- income t o moder at e-income population and their housing locations and needs as ne cessary for a continual assessment of market potential. Although costly, t he r etention of such housing and population data would be an extremely valuable planning t ool f or both public and privat e interests . Futher more , thi s fun ction is seen as t he only pra ctical way definitive "client analyses" can be achieved to obtain the best pos sibl e housing balance in the area or to plan for maintaining that balance with t he cr iteria a ttached to the various exi s ting and proposed housine assistance progr ams . The Housing Resources Bureau would i dentify t he potential of us e of housing assis tance proerams in advance of all governmental community redevelopment projects. Th.rough cooperat i on with the appropriate agencies t he 11·Bureau 11 would program and initiate l oan, gr ant, or unit r es ervat i ons f or housing assistance at a time sufficient to assure such housing f acilities are "on t he ground" at the time people are displ aced by governmental projects . B. Public Inf ormation Periodically, r eports would be issued and di stributed t o realtors, devel- opers., banks, and concerned publi c or privat e agencies . These reports would i ndi cate existing housing imbalances determined by comparing the characteristics of the eY.is tine hous:in[.{ stock t otbe changine character of area ecomomy and population . .. �- - -- - - - - - ~-- - . J C. Technical Assistance The Bureau would be responsi bl e f or providing designated city agencies with inf ormati on on housing and populat i on chara cteri s tics necessary t o the major report f orms re quired in the administration of t heir programs with the Federal Government (Workable Proer am f orms , Survey and Planning Applications for urban renewal, public housing r eservation inf or mat ion, etc.). Such infor mati on would be of a desi gnated f ormat confined ; to housing and tenant character isti cs and provided at designated intervals. This responsibility would provide i mportant consistency and, hopefully , improve understanding and a ccuracy of su ch data. The Housing Resources Bureau would purposef ully solicit and encourage a s s is tance and support f rom area r ealt ors , developers, and the like, by offering special s ervices in defining and describing special housing market needs, and, where appropr i ate, applying information on the potential use of governmental assistance programs for low-to moderate-income housing markets. .. �

  • Text: [8sy7 CC~@1~~ J A zoning class in the graduate school of the i City Planning Department of Georgia Tech will begin work soon on a short-range plan designed to make zoning recommendations on vacant land in Southwest Atlanta. The recommendations will relate both to the reactions of the people in the neighborhoods concerned. and to city objectives, according to Tech Associate Professor Roger F . Rupnow. Rupnow says he hopes the class can get to work on the project around the first of April when a new quarter begins. The some 15 students, who are in Tech's twoyear City Planning graduate program. will, Rupnow hopes; generate their own program of work once they have been given the boundaries within which they are to work and have some knowledge of the zoning problems of the area. Then. these students will take their plan of work to the exe.cutive committee of the Federation of Southwest Clubs (FSC), explain it, and defend and modify it, if necessary. based on their conversation with the executive commit.tee. The boundaries laid out by FSC (the council made up of representatives o·r civic clubs on the south side, which is seeking both a short-range and long-range land-use plan for the area ) are Gordon Road on the north, Campbellton Road on the south, Donn_~lly Avenue on the east and Fulton Industrial Boulevard on the west. · Rupnow says the students will try to come up with a zoning plan for the entire area and. in arriving at this zoning plan. they hope to relate both the reactions of the people and to the city requirements. The class will v··1rk close1y with both ·groups. This is the first time such an approach has been used with a zoning class at Tech. and the plan came about through the Atlanta Urban League which has been working with both Tech and citizen groups in Sou thwest Atlanta. Ruonow sa id he wanted to emphasize to the public· that his class would be making recommendations- they are not empowered to go beyond this. And that the recommenda tions would possible include suggestions for amend. ing city zoning ordinances as well as suggestions for zoning in the southside. "We are going to try to come up with a plan tha t might be more specific than what now exists, " Rupnow said . The plan must be achieved during an 11-week period. the length of a quarter a t Tech. The City Pla nning Professor adm its this -is quite an undertaking. but he is optimistic that his students will be able to achieve it. "The students will be looking at the neighborhoods first hand." Rupnow said. " They will study them from the sense of land use and ·.vhat zoning ordinances permit in the areas under co nsidera tion." q A �

After days and nights of discussions and tireless blending of opinions, plans for action ·were unaminous ly agreed. rhe only logical conclusion was reached that (1) subsidized housing must be fair ly distributed t hroughout the city and, (2) tha t the only pol i tica l l y feas ibl e wa y to d o this was by a " package deal" simultaneously presented to Council by the Mayor and Atlanta Housing Authority with overwhelming community support.

And the committee voted unanimously at its second annual meeting to push again the so-called "package plan," which Imeans zoning for low-cost housing throughout all sections of the city simultaneously. ' Two -aldermanic committees asked the City Planning department to study the matter last August, but indirectly seemed to hope the matter would be forgotten.
