  • Text: January 24, 1967 Mr . M . B. Satterfield Exec utive Director Atlanta Housing Authority 824 Hu:rt Building Atlanta , Georgia 30303 Dear Mr . Satterfieldi As you recall , last September we experienced serious disorders along Boulevard betwe n Forrest Avenue and North Avenue . The people participating in these disorders and other Boulevard citizens who were not directly involved pointed to dilapidated and unsanitary ho-u sing conditions, over .. crowding and high rents as among th most serious problem which helped to create the conditions which generated the disturb nces. The City is anxious to proceed with a comprehensive Housing Code Compliance program along this street. We feel that through intensive enforcement of our housing codes we c n make a substantial impact on the improvement of living conditions in this rea. Since Boulevard fall within the proposed Bedford .. Pine Urban Redevelopment Project we ar-e anxious not to institute any programs contrary to the urban red velopment plan for th area. Would trict en£orcement of the housing cod long both sides of Boul vard between Forr t Av nue and North Avenue or Ponce d Leon be in conflict with the urban redevelopment plan for reh bUitation of tructure in this r ? Sincer ly yours, Iv n Allen, J~. Mayor �

  • Text: February 2, 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the City of Atlanta City Hall 68 Mitchell Street, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: The best current estimate of the initiation of execution activities in the Bed.ford-Pine Urban Redevelopment Project is approximately November 1, 1967. Your l etter of January 24 calls our attention to the problems which have been experienced. in the Boulevard. area between Forrest Avenue and. North Avenue. Because of the length of time before execution activities can begin, we agree that it would. be helpful to initiate strict housing code enforcement along both sides of Boulevard. from Forrest Avenue all the way to Ponce de Leon. Such action would. be in keeping with the Urban Redevelopment Plan for the area. Since some structures fronting on Boulevard. are in such condition as to be uneconomical to rehabilitate or constitute non-conforming land. uses, our staff should. consult with the Housing Code Enforcements s taff in order to avoid. requi r ing owners to demolish structures which the Plan will propose for acquisition. It should. be clearly understood. that owners of s tructures Bedford-Pine Project area will not be eli gible for the special of Federal assistance until a loan and. grant contract has been These special forms of assistance are Section 312 low-interest loans and. Section 220 FHA insured. rehabilitation loans. in the f orms executed.. rate It is our hope that housi ng code enforcement action will be ins trumental in alleviating some of the more serious problems in thi s area. Very truly yours, Executive Directo �

ASST, I NSPECTOR OF BU ILD I NGS MEMORANDUM TO FROM • R. Earl L:~~:rs f W.R.Wof~ I am returning the annual report of 1966 which reflects the disposition of the Housing Code Court activities as prepared by the Prosecutor, Mrs. Dusthimer. This report emphasizes two pertinent facts, one being that the City did not lose one case in the H~using Court and that an increasing number of cases has been represented by qualified counsel. I am also attaching the annual report for 1966 as prepared by the Codes Compliance Officer which is comprehensive in scope, and reveals that many more properties were referred to the Codes Compliance Officer in 1966 than in any previous year. It reflects the fact that a definite trend has been established to organize a movement to defeat the present Code. It also points out the need for a complete revision of the present Housing Code which is now in the final stages of preparation and should be ready to present for adoption in the near future. There are some minor differences in the figures shown in the two above reports, but in general they are the same. I would like to have this report returned when you have finished with it.

MOSES, Executive Secretary DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mr. William R. Wofford From: Ivan Allen·, Jr. Subj e ct: Housing Code Enforc ement - Boulevard As you r e call, last S eptember the shooting of two Negro youths by a white man on Boulevard touched off several days of serious disorders in that area from Forrest Av enue to Ponce de Leon Avenue. Although the disorders were proj ected by the shooting incident, conditions in the area were such that the possibility of such an explosion occurring had been present f or some time. The main problems pointe d out by r es idents of the area were primarily centered around housing conditions including ov er crowdedness, high rents, roaches and rats, and other sanitation factors. Since the September incident we hav e made some progress toward better g arb a ge and trash collection, enforcement of health m e asures, and e limination of major criticisms in the area of traffic safety. There has also been much planning in the area of providing for recreational programs. Howe '('er, the major problem still existing is one which can only b e s olv e d b y s t r i c t e nforc e m ent of the H ousin g Code. Ther e fore, �• Mr. Wofford Page T w o January 30, 1967 I am r e ques ting that your department imme diate ly initiate comprehensive Housing Cod e-.insp e ctions along both sides of Boulevard fro1n Forr e st Avenue to Ponc e de L eon and that property owners by r e quired to comply with th e City's codes . You m ay b e assured of full coop e ration of my· office, the Housing Authority, EOA and other agenci e s conc erne d with elimination of unfit housing conditions and relocation of residents into standard dwellings. Pl ea se inform me as to how soon you can initiate inspections along this stre e t and the anticipated l ength of time which will be required to complete such code enforcement. IAJr:fy �
