The deterioration of the Central Business Districts of American cities cannot be allowed to destroy our economic, social and public values. S. 3282 offers the strong tool long needed to provide assistance to those charged with responsibilities for sound development and preservation of our central cities. Atlanta joins her great sister cities in urging prompt and positive action on this amendment and offers her support to your Sub-Committee in seeking full approval of this progressive legislation. Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor cc: Senator Richard Russell Senator Herman Talmadge Representative Charles L. Weltner Representative James A. Mackay Representative Robert G. Stephens, Jr. WA Scttefreek — Aut Mens’ Proll An Amendment To amend title I of the Housing Act of 1949 to authorize financial assistance for urban renewal projects involving the central business district of a community without regard to certain requirements otherwise applicable. That title I of the Housing Act of 1949 is amended by adding at the end thereof a new section as follows: "URBAN RENEWAL AREAS INVOLVING THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT OF A COMMUNITY "SEC. 118. (a) In any case where the governing body of a community determines (1) that there exists in the central business district of such community conditions which (A) impose severe public, economic, or social liabilities, (B) impair, arrest, or prevent the sound growth, development, or redevelopment of the community, or (C) constitute a serious and growing threat to the public health, safety, morals, and welfare of the community, and (2) that the undertaking of an urban renewal project in such district will alleviate or remove such conditions and promote the public welfare and the proper development of the community, the Administrator is authorized to extend financial assistance under this title for such project without regard to the requirements in section 110 with respect to the predominantly residential character or predominantly residential reuse of urban renewal areas. In contracting for any such project, the Administrator shall consider the need to plan for, and carry out undertakings with respect to, a sufficiently large area to accomplish the objectives of this title, and (i) the necessity for staging the project undertakings and activities on a functional rather than geographic basis, (ii) the provision of increased opportunities for effecting the relocation of displaced individuals and business con- cerns, and (iii) the greater amount of time that may be required for achieving such objectives through selective and coordinated action. Site improvements and supporting facilities which are peculiarly appropriate to the revitalization and renewal of the central business district of the community involved, when provided by a public body or entity, shall be eligible as part of gross proj- ect cost and as a local grant-in-aid in connection with any such urban renewal project. "(b) Upon approval by the Secretary and subject to such conditions as he may determine to be in the public interest, the local public agency may acquire structures situated in any urban renewal area approved for a project under subsection (a) which are determined to be of unusual significance for historical or other reasons, restore or rehabilitate them, and make available the restored or rehabilitated structures to any nonprofit corporation or association, or public body or agency, for purchase at fair value for nonproprietary uses in the public interest. "(c) As used in this section, the term 'central business district' means the administrative, commercial, financial, govern- mental, and cultural center of a community, including its support- ing service areas." Need for Special Legislation for the Revitalization of Central Business Districts By enacting appropriate legislation: ZL. Providing for planning and carrying out the revitalization of an entire central business district, to allow for staged renewal on a functional rather than a limited geographical basis, and to provide for greater opportunity for the relocation of individuals and businesses within the area. Encouraging preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historical and other significant structures. Recognizing that certain public facilities essential to the central business district should qualify as non-cash grants-in-aid. The Congress would permit cities to: As Plan for and guarantee the total revitalization of the central business district so that developers and investors will be encouraged to participate more readily, thus stimulating maximum participation by private enterprise with a minimum of public acquisition. Stage urban renewal action on a more efficient basis so as to reduce the time lag between demolition and reconstruction. Finance its urban renewal and other related activities on a more efficient and orderly basis. Increase job opportunities through the revitalization of the primary employment area. Strengthen the economic base of the community. Provide increased cultural opportunities for the community. March 23, 1966 URBAN RENEWAL AREAS INVOLVING CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICTS People live in urban areas because they seek the combined advantages which these areas can offer as compared to more sparsely settied areas. Such advantages include increased employment opportunities, good housing in attractive neighborhoods, adequate and economical transportation facil- ities, the cultural and social advantages offered by the great educational institutions located in such areas, and the ccnvenience and enjoyment of the varied facilities afforded by the central business district. It is the total urban "package," rather than any special element thereof, which is the magnet of attraction. It is therefore essential that any national legislation to assist cities in the renewal of their urban areas should permit effective assistance to be made available for the renewal of any blighted or deteriorated sections of an urban community so that any such section can be redeveloped to provide any one or more of such desired and needed advantages. To a large extent, our present national urban renewal legislation recognizes this principle. In areas of specialized need, such as mass transportation and such as colleges, universities and hospitals in or near urban renewal areas, it recognizes that the standards applied must be different from those applied in residential area projects. In the case of central business districts, however, this is not the situation. This could be corrected by granting the necessary flexibility to provide, in the case of central business district areas, the varied procedures and treatment required to provide effective assistance for the renewal of such areas. It is to be remembered in respect of the national urban renewal pro- gram that the capital grant "write down" is extended to the community to enable it to provide, by proper redevelopment, the advantages its citizens need. The benefit is to the whole community, not to any particular redeveloper, be he a private entrepreneur providing housing, a medical institution providing hospital facilities, a college or university pro- viding any one or more of the wide range of facilities such an institution must provide, or a department store building a new structure as a part of the community effort to revitalize its central business district. The total community benefits by the better housing provided through the redevelopment of one residential area, just as the total community bene- fits by the revitalization of a central business district through the redevelopment of its deteriorated parts.

At that time, however, I will consider it carefully, bearing in mind your position. It was a pleasure to hear from you and whenever I may be of service, do not hesitate to call on me. With warm personal regards, I am Sincerely,

  • Text: Need for Special Legislation for the Revitalization of Central Business Districts By enacting appropriate legislation: ZL. Providing for planning and carrying out the revitalization of an entire central business district, to allow for staged renewal on a functional rather than a limited geographical basis, and to provide for greater opportunity for the relocation of individuals and businesses within the area. Encouraging preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historical and other significant structures. Recognizing that certain public facilities essential to the central business district should qualify as non-cash grants-in-aid. The Congress would permit cities to: As Plan for and guarantee the total revitalization of the central business district so that developers and investors will be encouraged to participate more readily, thus stimulating maximum participation by private enterprise with a minimum of public acquisition. Stage urban renewal action on a more efficient basis so as to reduce the time lag between demolition and reconstruction. Finance its urban renewal and other related activities on a more efficient and orderly basis. Increase job opportunities through the revitalization of the primary employment area. Strengthen the economic base of the community. Provide increased cultural opportunities for the community. March 23, 1966 URBAN RENEWAL AREAS INVOLVING CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICTS People live in urban areas because they seek the combined advantages which these areas can offer as compared to more sparsely settied areas. Such advantages include increased employment opportunities, good housing in attractive neighborhoods, adequate and economical transportation facil- ities, the cultural and social advantages offered by the great educational institutions located in such areas, and the ccnvenience and enjoyment of the varied facilities afforded by the central business district. It is the total urban "package," rather than any special element thereof, which is the magnet of attraction. It is therefore essential that any national legislation to assist cities in the renewal of their urban areas should permit effective assistance to be made available for the renewal of any blighted or deteriorated sections of an urban community so that any such section can be redeveloped to provide any one or more of such desired and needed advantages. To a large extent, our present national urban renewal legislation recognizes this principle. In areas of specialized need, such as mass transportation and such as colleges, universities and hospitals in or near urban renewal areas, it recognizes that the standards applied must be different from those applied in residential area projects. In the case of central business districts, however, this is not the situation. This could be corrected by granting the necessary flexibility to provide, in the case of central business district areas, the varied procedures and treatment required to provide effective assistance for the renewal of such areas. It is to be remembered in respect of the national urban renewal pro- gram that the capital grant "write down" is extended to the community to enable it to provide, by proper redevelopment, the advantages its citizens need. The benefit is to the whole community, not to any particular redeveloper, be he a private entrepreneur providing housing, a medical institution providing hospital facilities, a college or university pro- viding any one or more of the wide range of facilities such an institution must provide, or a department store building a new structure as a part of the community effort to revitalize its central business district. The total community benefits by the better housing provided through the redevelopment of one residential area, just as the total community bene- fits by the revitalization of a central business district through the redevelopment of its deteriorated parts.

  • Text: An Amendment To amend title I of the Housing Act of 1949 to authorize financial assistance for urban renewal projects involving the central business district of a community without regard to certain requirements otherwise applicable. That title I of the Housing Act of 1949 is amended by adding at the end thereof a new section as follows: "URBAN RENEWAL AREAS INVOLVING THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT OF A COMMUNITY "SEC. 118. (a) In any case where the governing body of a community determines (1) that there exists in the central business district of such community conditions which (A) impose severe public, economic, or social liabilities, (B) impair, arrest, or prevent the sound growth, development, or redevelopment of the community, or (C) constitute a serious and growing threat to the public health, safety, morals, and welfare of the community, and (2) that the undertaking of an urban renewal project in such district will alleviate or remove such conditions and promote the public welfare and the proper development of the community, the Administrator is authorized to extend financial assistance under this title for such project without regard to the requirements in section 110 with respect to the predominantly residential character or predominantly residential reuse of urban renewal areas. In contracting for any such project, the Administrator shall consider the need to plan for, and carry out undertakings with respect to, a sufficiently large area to accomplish the objectives of this title, and (i) the necessity for staging the project undertakings and activities on a functional rather than geographic basis, (ii) the provision of increased opportunities for effecting the relocation of displaced individuals and business con- cerns, and (iii) the greater amount of time that may be required for achieving such objectives through selective and coordinated action. Site improvements and supporting facilities which are peculiarly appropriate to the revitalization and renewal of the central business district of the community involved, when provided by a public body or entity, shall be eligible as part of gross proj- ect cost and as a local grant-in-aid in connection with any such urban renewal project. "(b) Upon approval by the Secretary and subject to such conditions as he may determine to be in the public interest, the local public agency may acquire structures situated in any urban renewal area approved for a project under subsection (a) which are determined to be of unusual significance for historical or other reasons, restore or rehabilitate them, and make available the restored or rehabilitated structures to any nonprofit corporation or association, or public body or agency, for purchase at fair value for nonproprietary uses in the public interest. "(c) As used in this section, the term 'central business district' means the administrative, commercial, financial, govern- mental, and cultural center of a community, including its support- ing service areas."

  • Text: Special Legislation for the Revitalization of Central Business Districts The central business districts which constitute the cultural and economic hearts of cities, the principal tax resources, and the principal sources of employment in most communities, are. facing increasingly serious problems of decay and congestion. The renewal and revitalization of downtowns require a special approach and treatment not available or possible under existing law, regula- tions, and procedures. In order to enable a city to undertake comprehensive programs to strengthen the ability of its central business district to function effectively, new legislation is required which will: 1. Recognize that the health of commercial, industrial, and cultural functions of central business districts is essential to a well balanced community. 2. Permit the Secretary to qualify site improvements and supporting facilities as part of the gross project cost and as local grants-in-aid. 3. Allow for the acquisition and rehabilitation of historical properties in such areas. 4. Permit waiver of residential requirements in renew- ing central business districts. Revitalization of central business districts made possible by the attached amendment will: 1. Strengthen the tax base of cities. 2. Permit the use of the increased local tax resources to more nearly meet the educational, social welfare, recreational, and cultural needs of the people. 3. Improve the economic health of cities. 4. Increase employment opportunities for unskilled and semi-skilled in central business districts where the greatest potential for such employment exists now and will exist even more so as revitalization is accomplished. This proposed legislation was introduced in the 88th Congress as H.R. 6431 and as a part of S. 2031, and was endorsed by: United States Conference of Mayors National League of Cities Joint Council on Housing and Urban Development National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials National Housing Conference March 25, 1966
