GL A DI N , Di r ec tor July 22, 1968 Mr. Dan Sweat Director of Governmental Liaison Mayor's Office City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: We have reviewed Section 413 11 Low and Moderate Income Housing in Residential Urban Renewal Areas" as it appears in the Report of the House Banking and Currency Committee on the 11 Housing and Urban Development Act Of 1968, II It is our understanding that the Atlanta Housing Authority has also reviewed these materials and expressed concern about restraints which said section might impose, namely, an economic diversification of housing units and possible conflicts between local and national goals impeding achievement of the highest and best use of land. In that we share these same feelings we shall not reiterate them here . Instead we would like to offer some suggestions which we feel might strengthen this section, while at the same time offering some alternatives to those cities to be affected by it. The suggestions are : (I ) Let the 20% provision as currently written in the law remain as it is, but add the requirement of a locally developed low to moderate income housing program outside of u rba n renewal are a s . Such a loc a lly developed program could be sub jected to rev iew as necessary by the Secretary of HUD in much the same way a s th e Wo rka ble Program for Communi ty Improveme nt (WPFCI ) . �Mr. Dan Sweat 2. July 22, 1968 (2) Use the 50% requirement, but state it somewhat differently. It should be restated to the effect that, if possible, 50% or more low to moderate income housing units should be developed in predominantly residential reuse projects to rehouse those families and individuals originally displaced. If this requirement is found to be in conflict with local goals, the City shal I then create or cause to be created in other areas of the city that percentage of units not attained within the urban renewal project area, or (3) Use the 50% or more requirement, but enhance its use. Congress might give thought to creating inducements or incentives to cities applying themselves towards the end of creating low to moderate income housing units. For example, in those urban renewal projects (predominantly residential) wherein 50% or more of the units are designed for low to moderate income housing, it would be desirable to accomplish economic diversity, and a cohesive"planned community" (including but not limited to commercial areas, community centers, schools, parks and other residential amenities). The proposals should be imaginative and innovative, but practical and economically feasible, They would be subjected to the normal review by the Secretary of HUD, but upon acceptance wou Id be eligible for 80/20 or 90/10 financing in lieu of the standard I/3rd 2/3rds arrangement . Thank you for the oppostunity of commenting on these materials. Sincerely yours, ~ Collier B. Gladin Planning Director C BG/ jp �

The Offering is an invitation to bid on a development competition e~compassing approximately 96 acres of Federal Surplus L~hd lying in two parcels designated BB-·l and CC-1. The Offering states that proposals will be ope!"1ed September 5, 1968. The opening date is hereby changed to OCTOBER 24, 1968 at 10:00 A. M. at the offices of the Atlanta Housing Authorityi 824 Hurt Building, Atlanta, Georgia, 30303. ! / f • ( . The Housing Act of 1968 contains provisions which propospective Redevelopers may wish to use in this competition. It is anticipated· that most of the pertine r1t detail s concerning this Act, and particularly Sections 235 and 236, will be knm·m within the next few weeks. It is anticipated also that the supplemental Appropriations Act, funding tha new Sections, will be passed on or before October 1.

However, if public housing, either Turn-key or preferably Leased, is co~sidered necessary, it s})ould not exceed 50% of the -300 dwellings. Our analysis of the low-rent public housing situ-} at ion in Atlar.ta, as it concerns high-rise for ? elderly, leads 1.J.s t:o the conclusion t~1at this _ type of public housing would not be acceptable in this development.. We do not, however, rule out high-rise for one and two person families financed through other programs. I I iI I I ?

The Jury is being supplied with the same information as that supplied to prospective Redevelopers. This Jury will review all proposals and will select the successful proposal to recommend to the Housing Authority Board of Commissioners for the award. (4) It should be apparent from the foregoing that the criteria for judging the proposals will be based solely on the written information which has been supplied both to the prospective Redevelopers and to the Jury. The types of questions, therefore, that our staff is prepare d to answer relate to the methods of submitting proposals rather than to the contents of the• propo_sals. r·· Sincerely yours, MBS:hcn . .. $H EET Z A N D B~ ,\D rrE LO '" . .' ....._-., I Al1ctlll

E ., P.E. ASST. INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS ? 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 eliminat e 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 . We have not insisted upon full comp liance with the Housing Code in the above area inasmuchas most of the prope rty is slated for acquisition and demolition under the Model Cities Program . , To date, the Department has sent out notices effecting one hundred and seventy-seven structures consisting of approximately four hundred living units. Forty-seven buildings have been comp lied by rehabi litation and thirty-five have been demolished. Thirteen owners have been in court and eighty-one buildings are current ly being repaired. Housing Code enforcement in the above area has been most difficult because: (a) Delay in approval of funds for the acquisition of properties by the Housing Authority for the purchase of a school and park site located east of Whitehall Terrace, S. W. (b) Property owners and residents of the area are aware of future Model Cities plan and feel that their property may be acquired and that rehabilitation might cause them an undue expenditu re which they may not later recover if the property is acquired. �II ~· , ' . " . ,- ! Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. - 2 - September 12, 1968 (c) Lending institutions are reluctant to lend money in the above disadvantaged area for home improvement purposes. (d) Insurance policies have been canceled on structures because of the possibility of civil disturbances. We _.are continuing to make every effort to improve the above area. By riding through this section many vacant lots where buildings have been demolished can be seen and improvements in housing is progressing under the handicaps mentioned above. Some bad housing is being demolished to make way for future connnercial projects. Very truly yours, W.R. Wofford Building Official WRW:gs . �

Mr. Alexander commented on the tour with CACUR in the slum areas. He said that they rode buses and then walked on through the areas. He stated that he still wanted Mr. Jones and Mr . Parham to plan their trip to the different slum area$.• �3 Mr. Alexa nder stated that the Zoning Manu al, as it r e lates to the Building Code, needs to be changed to permit struc tura l changes in r e sidential b uildings c l as s ified as non-confor mi n g use, in order tha t such d wellings may be improved to meet full req uirement s o f the Housing Code.

Jones stated that the site in Cobb County is½ mile south of Ba nkhead Highway, about 1 mil e west of the River ; that it is on a paved road , lays well and~~ water; sewer will soon be avail~ble and the price of land is reasona ble . The owners propos e that this land t , used for Turnkey program; 152 units on 17 acresn The land is already zoned for a pa rtments. �4 Mr. Persells stated that the City of Atlanta's low-income housing program calls for 16,800 housing units and that it is contended by some that more people are coming in from rural areas, rather than the people already in Atlanta using the housing and that thus, we are not taking care of our own people in the slum areas; that priority should go to the people of Atlanta first. Mr. Persells stated that the number of people who come to Atlanta f or low-income housing is very low; that of those applications rejected since November 1967 1 141 did not meet the residential requirements; that the time of application applies to priority for public housing; that it is on a first come first served basis (other considerations permitting). Mr. Jones commented that ~lthough the percentage of rejections may be low f or those who do not meet residential requirements, however, that 141 rejections since November 1967, that did not meet residential requirements, is significant and should be made known to the Aldermen. Mr. Jim Parhm said that the Committee should start buildi~g up the area outside the City Limits in the big Metropolitan Area to meet this problem of people coming fr om the rural areas who need to live in low-income housing. As there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at 11:05 a .m. Respectfully submitted, .._ rJi ..~ .-... ....~ _ . . , Malcolm D.

I believe , however, that certain provisions of the new Housing A ct will allow us to overc ome some of the problems with enforcing the code in areas which might become future urban re n wal projects . I believe the new H ousing A c t will llow us to go ahead with code enforc ment without jeopardizing any urban renewal credits and will now lso allow applic tion of the loan and grant p rogram.
