A pedestrian walkway, free of vehicle traffic, allows for safe access throughout the development. A community shopping center consisting of approximately 7,000 square feet form an integral part of this development concept which will provide the daily essentials for residents and the general community. In addition, an office building complex of approximately 3200 square feet, is incorporated in this community center, providing space for professional offices and convenient type stores and shops. A day nursery designed to accommodate preschool-age children of working mothers has been given special study and the result of this intensive investigation regarding the special needs of these children are reflected in our day-care center.

Hou ing Authority �CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION June 10, 1968 I I I I l !I ! Mr. Howard Openshaw Director of Redevelopment Atlanta Housing Authority 824 Hurt Building Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Openshaw: This is with reference to your letter of June 4, 1968 outlining several objections to our plans for the development of Parcels E-la and B-2. As I understand it, these objections represent the position both of your office and that of the City Planning Commission. I should like to take exception, first, to the second paragraph of your letter, which states in part that, "While certain elements of the original plan have been retained .... other features on which the development competition award was made have been eliminated, reducing the original extraordinary site plan proposal to the average run-of-the-mill development." That statement is unjustified as to the facts, and, if it is an expression of aesthetic judgement, not one with which we agree or respect. I I I Second, I should like to point out that your action in advising the Federal Housing Administration that our plans were not acceptable has resulted in their refusal t6 issue ready-to-go commitments. This may mean the loss, to . us and . to the City of Atlanta, of the 22l(d)(3) reservations for this project and, if 22l(d)(3) money is, as we are advised, exhausted, it may be some time before new reservations are obtained if we lose these. A far more advisable course for you to have followed (in terms of safeguarding the 22l(d)(3) reservations for this project) would have been to permit FHA to issue their commitments and in the period preceeding initial mortgage closing, work with us to achieve that which you feel is necessary. Your control of our going and our coming is so complete in every respect that with or without the commitment we cannot proceed into construction until you SUITE 2352 • NATIONAL BANK OF GEORGIA BUILDING • ATLANTA GEORGIA 30303 • TEL: 404/688-1415 -. ,'··. ~ i �• ! CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION Mr. Howard Openshaw June 10, 1968 I .I .i ,I Page - 2 - .I I ·I I are completely satisfied with our work. You chose, however, to pursue a course which places the project's development in . jeopardy .... a needless and disheartening risk and delay. i J Third, I should like to point out that we are no less interested than are you or any other City Agency concerned with this project, · in producing as superior a development as possible.· Our competition submission was not a pipe dream nor did we approach it on the basis of winning a beauty contest thinking to make it work later, as is often the case. I would imagine that we will be with this project long after most of the City officials concerned with it now have left the scene and its success, both as an investment and in the achievement of our social objectives, depends entirely upon its desirability to potential tenants. It was recognized publicly, by you and by us during the course of the competition, that detailed planning, architecture and fiscal analysis would require certain changes, but that the major concepts presented would be preserved. We have ! acted in . good faith in pursuing our work and those changes which I have been made, in practically every single, instance of concern to you, have related to four major factors: ' A. The severe cost restrictions governing the 22l(d)(3) program which have become even more severe over this past year by virtue of the money market and tremendous increases in construction costs. B. Detailed cost analysis of certain of our original development proposals (such as rental town housing in Parcel E-la and elements of site development) have proved to be economically infeasible in terms of their effect upon rentals. C. The need to provide the full number of units originally proposed when certain areas, upon detailed site planning, proved to be economically infeasible for development or, proved to contain conditions of which we were not advised (such as County ownership of certain lands within the proje c t area) • I I ' ' i .. ..... --- ....... . __ .... . -· - ~-::--: �CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION Mr. Howard Openshaw June 10, 1968 I .i Page - 3 - I D. The rentals and carrying charges which the housing market with which we are concerned can absorb. Lastly, _ I should like to point out that most of those elements of our work which you now question ·; have been known to your office and to the City Planning Commission for several months. It is baffling, to say the least, that at this late and critical date you choose to present your comments. Now, as to the substance of your letter, I shouH like to make the following brief observations which will be enforced by oral argument and graphic material presented at our meeting on June 11, 1968. I • I · J I As to your item (a), we do not agree that the geometric arrangement of buildings does not provide interesting and varied pedestrian spaces. The changes we have made in Parcel E-la with regard to buildings placement are not major. If you are making an aesthetic judgement, we agree that the original concept is better, but not that our revision does it great violence. Additionally, some study of our building placement would have indicated the extreme topographic conditions which account for many of our shifts in building _.location, conditions we originally felt able to resolve, but in the face of economics, could not. In this regard, I sh9uld point out that retaining walls were the first to go when the dollar situation became extreme and this fact mandated a shift in building, parking and driveway location . .I I! f I !I !: • I I J !I I As to your item (b), rental townhouses in Parcel E-la were ' eliminated solely for reasons of economy and FHA guidance here _: was quite convincing. They proved too costly to build and could not be absorbed by the rental market with which we are concerned . Eliminating townhouses eliminated the structured and disciplined flow of pedestrian traffic, but that function can be provided by strong and adequately designed pedestr i an pathways . - .. ., ·r : . ~ ·! �CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION Mr. Howard Openshaw June 10, 1968 Page - 4 i I II The original competition drawing did in fact show townhouses step up or down the grades. It was later recommended by your office and concurred in by us, that the B-2 site be converted to all co-op townhouses which more fully and economically served the market for townhouse occupancy. In addition, FHA requirements regarding percentage of grade around the E-la townhouses parking ·lots which served these steep townhouse had severe cost implications. Also, the cost of producing such a steep townhouse proved to be so high as to approach or exceed the maximum rentals under the 22l(d)(3) program as follows: • I i ·. i I I I i ,. I I I i: Tr:ee of Unit 2BR 3BR 2BR basement 3BR basement 4BR basement I Monthly Rent On E-1 Site $ 98 112 105 119 126 Monthly Charge On B-2 (co-o:e site) $ 81 98 96 109 119 • Note: Includes all ~tilities As to your item (c), we agree that the community plaza . was a major and highly desirable element of our original proposal. We eliminated it and distributed the functions elsewhere throughout the project in that a part of Parcel E-lb and all of E-lc cannot now be developed for housing due to certain facts not brought to our attention during the competition. We, therefore, sought to recapture some of the lost units by placing them on the community plaza site. However, we are quite willing to eliminate that housing and to reinstate the original community plaza proposal, but you must recognize that this will mean a net loss of approximately 40 dwelling units. I' !I I  ! Additionally, it should be noted here that the new centrally located community recreation area was not only approved by the Planning Commission and the full Board of Aldermen in our Community Unit Plan submission, but was also approved by the Atlanta Housing Authority. Similarily, the \ . ~r\ --- , �CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION Mr. Howard Openshaw June 10, 1968 I I . J Page - 5 I ! i l new church site location plan was forwarded to both the Housing Authority and Collier Gladdin's office on April 22, 1968 and no objection was raised at that time. As to your item (d), changes in relationship of peripheral drives and parking areas to the housing units they serve, were made necessary by detailed studies which could not have been performed during the competition and by other changes such as building location and elimination of retaining walls. However, not by any stretch of the imagination can we understand the charge that the basic concept and relationship of driveways and parking to housing units served, has been violated. As to the statement that a massive "sea of asphalt" parking area, remote from housing units is created, we point out that this is not the fact except perhaps in one instance. Even though the number of parking spaces has been increased to serve a larger number of housing units the parking solution in our proposal is superior to the original in many instances and in fact results in eliminating seas-of-parking. The statment that ,· parking areas are remote from housing units is absolutely unfounded. Except in two instances they are all in the same relationship as originally proposed and improved in many instances -- at FHA insistence. I ' As to your item (e), the concept of uninterrupted pedestrian streets is maintained. As a matter of fact, it is improved in both -Parcels E-la and B-2. Site plans showing the use of this particular street has been in jour possession since March. As a matter of fact, its utilization resulted as much from your suggestion that it be used and dedicated to the City so that approximately $30,000 in site improvement credits would accrue to the City, as it did from our desire to eliminate the cost of constructing additional roadway. 'I 'l , · ' '. ', As to your item (f), the pedestrian and vehicular traffic between Parcels B-2 and E- la will provide for controlled street crossing as originally proposed. I \ ... .. . . -·--.----\ ..... .,. .! . I ! ·- . • . •" .. ,.-. I ' . �~ . CEREX ATLANTA CORPORATION Mr. Howard Openshaw June 10, 1968 Page - 6 I, I As to your i _tem (g) , we have rethought the placement of church sites within building clusters in view of our meetings with church groups which established that the churches will attract members both from within and without the project area. · ·To place churches within the clustered areas would be to introduce large amounts of parking which we consider undesirable. As to your item (h), ·the geometric arrangement of Parcel B-2 not only does relate to topography, it is governed by topography. We do propose a cluster arrangement of buildings with much of the site open and existing ttees preserved. The statement that the entire site is covered with buildings and parking areas is completely unsupported by the facts and rather contentious. Coverage is approximately 20% for all buildings, roads and parking areas. The original plan proposed 331 dwelling units and 450 parking spaces. The present one proposes 250 dwelling units and 375 parking spaces -on the same acreage. I Very truly yours l.,;11~,A.,Nt}l,I143.215.248.55 I I DLR/sbs I ' cc : Mr .

Although its purpose is new, it is a traditio nal form of governm ~nt institution establishecl to fin a nce public and quasi-public facilities. •· The rapid increase in the number of public benefi t corporations in urban ized sta tes like New York. during the past twenty years has parall eled the n eecl for increased capital construction ::;.t costs exceecling liniitations ·on public debt. Simila rly, New York City.'s fi scal lim itations, toge ther with its need for school constru ction, generatecl th e crea tion of_the Educational Construction Fund. The concept was clevelopecl by Lloyd K. Garrison while h e was President of the Boarc.!_ of Education. H e saw the public benefit corporation as an appropriate vehicle to serve both the City a nd th e school system. " ' ith a gra nt from the Tacon ic Foundation to underwrite- research and bill dra fting, he initiated th e action that subsequentl y " ·on the endorsement· of Governor R ockefeller a nd . J\fayor Lindsay and th e support of the L egislature during the 1966 session. The Fune! is h eadecl by the President of th<.: Board of Edu cation wl10 is designa ted by hJ\v :ts Chairman.

Fonr tru stees, appoin ted by the i\fayo r, serve term s se t in itia ll y at two, three, four or five yea rs. T h eir su ccessors will all ~erve for fi ve years. The present trustees bring to the d irecti on of the Fund's development and fin ance operillions a combi ned background in a ll areas essenti al to th e success of this n ew venture -education, housing, labor, commerce an d finance. 2 �l The ·Fund is expected to proYid e a substantial portion of the City's school .construction program from now on. .

The two portions of the combinecl-occupancy building will be d es ig ned and constructed as a singl e proj ect. The Fund's acti viti es generally start with a site designated by th e Board of Education for a ne\\· school. Th ey inclucle dcYeloping appropri a te con cepts for combined me of these sites, promoting deYeloper interest in undertaking construction, ancl coordinating with th e Board of Education durin g the desig n and cons~ruction of the school. Local School Boards will b e consul tccl, and all combined-occupancy structures will be appro\'ed b)' th e Board of Education as well as by th e Funcl, thu s assuring th a t the program directly serves the school system. The Fund hopes to a tt ra ct as spo nsors qu alifi ed person s and orga niza tion s interested in participa tin g m th e program , including community and other non-profit g roups. School sites already mrn ecl or b eing acquired by the City will be publicly adverti sed by the Fund if suitable for th e developm ent of combin ed-o ccupancy structures. Proposal s for th ese sites will b e invited from potenti a l sponsors and devel op ers. In addition to info'rm a ti o n describing th e site, th e Board of Education's r equirem ents for each sch ool will be made availabl e for the preparation of a proposal. Evalu a ti o n of the p ro p os al s will b e b ased on several criteri a, including th e comp a tibility of th e non-sch oo l use, th r in come t 0 h e derived th erefro m, and th e finan cial ability and experi ence of th e appli ca nts.

The developer will h ave full responsibility for th e construction of th e school as well as th e non-school_ portion of th e building. Although the three ma3or subcontrac tors (plumbing; heating, ventilating an cl a ir conditioning; electric work) will be selec ted by p ubli c bidding, as required by law, instead of by the inform al negot iation usual in priv':.t~ ,rnrk, th e winning bidders will be made responsible to th e genera l contractor or d eveloper.

H owever, th e provis:on assures at all tim es th e so lvency _o f the Fund and th e security of its bonds. D ebt service on the Fund's notes and bonds will be paid from income.

Some combined-occupa ncy structures ,rill probably be built to meet the City's social needs clc'spite their inab ility to produce enoi.1gh income to pay all 0£ the debt service - those providing rnodcrat;-rent housing, for example. In these instances, school rentals will be no high er than the annual cost of a comparable new school. The Fund h as been designed for considerable fl exibility in its operations. Because a wide variety 0£ commel-cial, public, social and residential uses can be accommod a ted in combined-occupancy buildings, many sections of the City offer appropria te si tes. Combined use is adaptable to small structures thc1.t can blend into existing, cohesive communities. Jt is also applicable on a la rge scale to major redevelopm ent areas, including urban renewal and l\Iodel Cities projects.

This program is. designed as an experimental project to develop new methods of pi"oviding low cost housing. The program itself is divided into two phases -- the first taking five weeks during which time the experimental program must be developed with respect to specific cities with recommendations submitted to HUD by June 15, 1968. The second phase calls for implementation of the experimental program with construction commencing on individual . _ . _ _ ___proje_c;~s q ~ aLch J .,__19.69~pp:r:.oaches .whi.ch-are .developed in these experimental projects will provide new building products, components, systems or total buildings which will meet the needs of the city residents · at a low cost. It ·is obvious that successful approaches have an opportun ity of be i ng implemented widely in model cities and throughout the country. In fact, the program is directly related to Presid ent Johnson' s objective of 6,000, 000 new or rehabilitated federally as siste d h ousing units for lower income farnilies. The approach to this project is t o analyze the various cities to determine their needs and their ability t o h ost different social and technical experin~e ntal approaches to housing. Simultaneously; we are looking to industry for new dev elopments in terms of produ c ts or procedures which will meet the needs of people fo r low cost hous·ing quickely. We are, therefore, soliciting comp anies such as yours throughout the country to determine whether or not there are appropri3.te building systems , materials and construction ideilS which you would like to have us consid er for use in the individual e x periments.

Honorable Iva_~ Allen, Jr. ¥.ayor of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear ·Mayor Allen: I want to take this opportunity to i~orm you of what I believe is a lllost exciting experiment in building new housing for low- and moderateincome families within the Inner-City. Within the ne:x-t several weeks, a prime contractor, most likely a joint venture of several firms, will be selected. by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. T'nis prime contractor will be expected to supervise and manage a variety of low-cost housing experiments in perhaps as many as 20 cities, most of which now have Mod.el Cities grants. These experiments -will be carried out only in cities which are -willing to cooperate in the development of innovative techniques aimed at generating a higher level of housing construction for low-income families. !l1he prime contractor will seek out, study and evaluate new design, construction and management techniques and systems, as well as materials and components to be used in the e.A-periments. Based on analysis and. after consultation with city officials and such interested private groups as l~bor unions, neighborhood organizations, builders, architects, sponsors and educators, the contractor wlll determine the kind_of housing to be built in a specific neighborhood. T'ne goal of the overall experiment is to obtain more housing value for each dollar spent in the development of good city housing for low-income families, and to identify the obstacles to building such housing. Where such housing is to be built within a designated model neighborhood, the experiment "1ill be carried out in the context of the Model Cities planning and program implementation process. In any case, it seems essential that the groups mentioned above be consulted if this bold experiment is to work. Following the selection of the prime contractor, HUD 'Will work wl th him to select cities which seem ,to have the capacity and willingness to carr y out an e:x-perimental project for low-income housing. The Departinent will be committing not only substantial research funds in this effort, but also t ens of millions of dollars o~ . program f'unds from several program soUTces. �- 7 • 2 With the :full cooperation of all who become involved in this experiment to better the nation's housing, and to make government more responsive to the most pressing housing needs, I believe that this can be a most . significant step toward meeting the goal of a decent home in a suitable living environment f'or every· American family. / Sincerely yours, .. • 1 . .

Chairman Cecil h. Alexander presided. Mr. Alexander opened the meeting by asking Mr. Archer Smith to give the Committee a report on school construction. Mr. Smith presented the following two proposals: (1) Approach the State School Building Authority about them leasing school buildings and then sub-leasing them to the City. The State could lease the premises from the developer for 30/40 years and turn them over to the City of Atlanta on a sub-lease basis. It would take a political decision by the State to re-vamp procedures to allow this. One advantage to this proposal would be that it would apply to all school systems if they so desire. (This was considered perhaps the simplest course of action.) (2) Have a local constitutional amendment passed allowing the City School Board to enter into leases on a long term basis. This local amendment would be the more solid way and the local amendment would be easier to pass. Mr. Alexander asked if the School Board had been approached to see which course of action they would prefer? Mr. Smith stated that they had not, officially, but the School Board would probably go along with either method. Mr. Jones suggested that the Committee authorize the Legal Panel to contact the School Board and see which they would prefer and then pursue that course. P. motion was made, seconded and adopted that the Legal Panel be so authorized. Mr. John Chapman appeared before the Committee to discuss a proposal for building low-income housing. He said housing for the lowest income families would probably need to be financed by the Federal government; that housing for medium income families could be financed through private corporations. He was suggesting dwelling units with rent range ~of $70-$80-$90 for 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms respectively. He proposed forming a limited profit corporation, the members of which would each put up a certain amount of front money, with the intent of building developments which would produce 4-5% profit, instead of the customery 1415% profit. He proposed using private conventional financing �2 entirely, with no connection with Federal assisted programs. He advised he would try to contact several private corporations about putting up money at a reasonable rate of interest and that if he got enough response from private corporations that this could be done, he would inform the Committee of the reaction he re~eived from this idea. Mr. Alexander commented on and referred to an article by Vincent T. Burke, in the Los fl nge.les Times, March 18, 1968, relating how certain Negro families in Washington had been assisted by a tiny non-profit "Home Buyers" group in obtaining home ownership without any assistance from Federal programs or organizations. (Copy of the article is attached to the file copy of these minutes.) Mr. Persells reported to the Committee on the Honor Farm No. 1 Site proposed concept. He presented a map showing approximately 120 acres between the Federal Penitentiary and the Thomasville Urba n Renewal Project that the Federal government proposes to turn over to the City for urban improvement, including housing. He explained that the portion of the property to be developed for housing and related commercial could be either turned over directly by HUD to developers, turned over to the ~ity to put out for bids, or go to Atlanta Housing Authority for development through process of Urba n Renewal. /1 meeting of the Alderma nic Planning and Development Committee is to be held to consider what should be done. Mr . Persells also advised that a new park area is to be developed and an Elementary School and a "Middle School" are to be constructed in the area. The question was asked about how housing could be developed in the shortest length of time. Mr . Persells responded we would be unable to start building until a street and sewer system was begun; that is the biggest delay. It was suggested that the land could be sold to a developer and he could put in the stree t syst em simultaneous with the housing d e velopme nt. Two choice s were rec ommended: (1) The City or d e velopers could go in and put in the street and utilities at their expense o f about $270 ,000. 00 . (2) Have streets put in by the Housing Author ity as an Urban Redevelopment expense. Mr. Persells explained that from;.d'financial standpoint and time element, the most favorable sollution would be to have the Housing Authority put in the street and sewer system at Urban Redevelopment expense, because the schools would have to be built any way, and the City would receive credit for the schools which would more than pay for the expense of putting streets and sewers in and that they could be put in while the developers were getting their plans approved by the Federal government. �3 Mr. Persells advised that topographical maps and surveys had already been made. He also reported that there was a small triangle of land the Federal government doesn't own; stated there were some title difficulties and the only sure way and quickest ~a y to get clear title to the property would be condemnation proceedings throu~h the Urban Renewa l process. The Land to be developed for housing and related. co~mercial is to be offered for sale on May 27, 1968, to developers, with proposals c~lled for. Additi onal land, 17 single-family lots, is to be added to the Thomasville Urban Renewal Site for sale, with ground breaking between May 2 0-28. Appr oximately 50 acres of the 120 acre tr a ct o f land wc ~ lci be available for housing. Mr . Archer Snith , ma de a moti on that a formal resolution be drawn up that the Housinc Re sources Committee goes on record as urging t h e support o f the New-Town-In -Town project concept condit i oned up on n s ub s t ant i a l porti on of the project to be developed for lowest-incoc e housing. If this condition is not met, then the Housi ng Res o urces Comn ittee goes on record as opposed to the pr oject a s presently planned. Motion was seconded and unanimously adopted , with instructions that copies go to the Housing Authority, Ma yo r Ivan Allen, J r ., Members of the Board of Aldermen and to Mr . Ba xter, o f HUD. Mr . How land nnnounced that the CACUR non-profit housing development corpora t ion has now selected five units f or rehabilitation u nder 221 (h) and expected to have them under way Viithi n 60 days . Mr. Alexande r then a sked Mr . Jones to explain a proposal he had been working on f o r accelerated low-income housing development in the Model Cities ar ea. Mr . Jones explained the concept a nd stated that a de vel opment team was very anxious to get a tract of about 10 acres f-eir an experimental housing dev elopment to start this summer. He read a letter just received by the Mayor from Mr. H. Ra lph Taylor, Assistant Secre t ary , HUD, propos ing a HUD sponsored experiment a l housing pr o j e ct in Mode l Cities area in selected cities to be carr ied o ut by a prime contractor to be selected by HUD; and inquiring if P. tlanta desired to cooperate? Mr. Jones expl ained tha t t his tied indirectly with the proposal he has been working on; that b ec aus e of multiple ownerships, it is virtunl ly icpossibl e f or private deve lopers to acquire land in the ~odel Cities area for this purpose; that therefore he has studied the ar ea and looked at certain sites, with others·, including a representative of Model Cities, and has _ selected two tentative sit es, having badly dilapidated housing which will in al l probability be de~olished any way, and has marked these on a map for consider a tion of the Model Cities staff. �4 Mr. Jones proposed "advanced land acquisition" to be requested in the Model Cities area on such a site to be sleeted so they would get started on construction of approximately a 10 acre site as soon as possible. A_ motion was made, seconded and adopted that the Housing Resources Committee recommends that a suitable site be selected in the Model Cities are~ for accelerated development of low-income housing (preferably under the experimental housing concept) and that application be made to HUD for ·authority to acquire the . site under the "advance land acquisition" procedures; that copies be provided the Planning and Development Commmittee, Mayor and Board of Al dermen and HUD. Mr. Persells stated that he concurred and that the Housing Authority would go·1n · soon with a request that the entire Model Cities area be placed under a GNRP so that this could be done as part of an Urban Re newal Pr oject within the Model Cities area. He requested support of t he HRC to the Planning and Development Committee, the Mayor and Board of Al dermen and to HUD on that proposal so that the "advance land acquisition" could be legally implemented. The Committee agreed to support the GNRP proposal for this purpose. Mr. Alexander informed the Committ ee of ground-brea ki ng on the first Turnkey Housing project in Atl anta on Hollywood Road, N. W. at 2 :00 p.m. on May 9 , 1968. All wer e i nv i ted; that May o r Ivan Allen , Jr., would offic ially break the ground for the 202-ttnit development. Copies o f the announcement, prepared by the Housing Authority were d istributed. It ½as announced that the report from the Ad Hoc Committee on Low-income Housing Analysis will not be ready and that it would be discussed at a later date. Mr . Alexande r an nounced that a conference wi ll be held May 29th at the Dink le r all day, consisting o f debates and discussions on legal aspects, employment, workshops, etc., on equal opportun it y in housing. Mr . Alexander exp la ined briefly the progres s made on Package Zoning. Question ·was asked if a f o rmal resolution has been adopted by the HRC Executive Committee on the proposed Package Zoning Plan . The Committee was advised that such resolution had already been adopted supporting this plan. Mr. ftlexander also stated it is anticipated that the plan would receive the support of numerous civic and business organizations and radio and television. Mr. Alexander read a Press Release from HUD announcing authorization of trailers (mobile homes) for temporary housing in Urban nedevelopment pr~jects. �5 Mr . Alexander also commented on the necessity for positive action soon for improvement in the NASH-BANS area, through Urban Renewal or otherwise. The meeting adjourned at 12:00 noon.

The regular montly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee and Low-income Housing Coordinating Group was held in Committee Room 2, City Hall, at 10:00 a.m~ Thursday, P-pril 11, 1968. Copies of invitational notices, agenda, list of those invited and attending and reference documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes. The following Panels of the Housing Resources Committee were not represented at the meeting: Legal, Public Housing, Social Problems 3nd Public Information. Chairman f.lexander Presided. In opening the meeting Mr. Alexander referred to the objectives of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and complimented Dr. Benjamin E . Mays, Co-Chairman of the Housing Resources Committee>on his e u logy address at the funeral of Dr. King. Mr. 1\lexander then expressed the appreciation of the Committee for the support it is receiving in the Chamber of Commerce and called upon Mr . Curtis Driskell of the Chamber's staff who read a Resolution a dopted by the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce l\pril 10, 1968 supporting proposed package zoning approa ch for obt aining sites for low-income housing. Mr . t lex ander then made referenc to a new assignment for the La nd Comm it tee, as indicated on the a genda, and explained i nter p r e tat ion by the Director of Pl a nn i ng on u ti lization o f the Ci ty's re c e n t l y a dop t ed La nd Use Pl a n, a s r elat e s t o Lo w- income housing . He the n called upo n Mr . Jones to comment on the Comm i ttee' s suppor t o n t wo r e ce n t zon i ng petitions . Mr . Jones e xp l a ined that t he Exe cut i v e Comm i tt ee o n March 14, 1968 authorized tr.e Ho usi ng Res o ur c e s Comm i tte e to support rezoning requests in c o nnecti o n appropriately planned development projects which c o nforM to the 1983 Land e Use Map and that consequently recent zoning petitions for a 15 acre tract on Jonesboro Road, S.E. for a Turnkey project and f o r a 99 acre tract (East Lake Golf Course No . 2) for a multiplicity of housing development types under Turnkey and 221 d (3) had both been supported by this Committee in letters to members of the Zoning Committee from Chairman Alexander and stated that Mr. Plexander appeared personally in support of both projects before the Zoning Committee at the Public Hearing! *hat the former site is consistent with ·the Land Use Plan and the latter is consistent with the Planning Director's interpretation of intended �-2use of the Land Use Plan; that both sites already have the essential Community Facilities or evidence that such will be provided simultaneously with the proposed development; and that both sites have been approved by the Housing Authority and have tentative approval of HUD; that action taken by the Zoning Committee was to Deny rezoning of the former site and to Defer action on ~he latter site. Mr. ~lexander proposed a meeting with representatives from the School Board, Planning Department and otbers ~affected such as Planning and Development Committee and Planning Board, Housing ~uthority and Citizenry to consider ways and means for taking zon~ng out of politics. Mr. P. lexander called for special report from the Legal Panel on School Construction by Developers in low-income housing projects. ~s the Legal Pa nel was not represented at the meeting the report was postponed. At this time the Chairman recognized and wel9omed Mr. Cary Hooks, newly appointed Director of FHA for Georgia. Mr. Hooks. responded with assurance of FH~ 's contined cooperation in the low-in income housing program and gave a brief report on 221 d (3) projects in Metropolit a n ft tlanta as follows: J.;352 Units 11 Completed 13 Unde r Construction 972 " 5 Commi tme nts Is s ue d 704 II 1 Appl ~.ca tion in process 300 " .Applic at ion 1,043 " 7 Pre limi na St age He a lso c omme nt ed on pr ogress being made i n t he Appa laci a n Progr am, wh i ch cover s the a rea Carrol ton- Rome-Dalton in Georg i a .

Dr. Sidney L. Da vis, Cha i r man of the Housing f. ppea1s · eoard, was called upon for c ommen t s. He e xplaine d t he urgent need for some sources of assistance in dire hardship cases for bringing dwelling units up to standards required b y the Housing Code; that to date all efforts in this direction have been unsuccessful and that the Housing Code Division has about 500 cases in this category~ �-3- Mr. T. M. JH exander, Sr., member of the Housing J\ppeals Board, confirmed and expanded on Dr. Davis' comments. He pointed out particularly the need for some City controls over µnscrupulous, fly-by-night contractors who are not required by the City or State to meet any performance qualifications and who constantly victimize unfortunate low-income property owners. Mayor Allen responded by stating that he has only recently called upon the Better Business Bureau to be on the outlook for this kind of so called Home Improvement Contractor and to expose the unscrupulous ones. Mayor Allen then made reference to the Civil Rights Act recently approved by Cpngress and to his request to the City Attorney for report on its implication to Atlanta. He suggested that the Housing Resources Committee call upon the Board of Aldermen for: (1) Establishment of a City-wide Relocation Service in Atlanta;and (2) Re-evaluation of Zoning for the entire City, with view to providing, thru zoning, adequate space for necessary housing. He also pointed out tha t this may require some changes in the Land Use Plan. Subsequently, motion was made by Mr . Winn, seconded by Dr. Mays and adopted unanimously that the Housing Resources Committee sup p o r t the program proposed by Ma yor P llen. Mr . n lex a nder a nnounced that implementation of the Housing Re sour ces Comm i t tee's a c t ion wo u ld be r efe rr ed to one o f the Sta nding Pa ne l s o r that a n Ad Hoc Committee would be appoint ed t o carr y it out. Mr. P lexa nder t hen r e ferr e d b a c k t o comme nt made b y Dr . Davis and Mr. T. M. Al e xa nd er , Sr . a nd announced that he wo uld refer t o the Legal Panel t he ma tte r o f : ( 1) Ext e nd ing the cove r age o f g ran t s f o r Cod e En1orc e me nt in Hardship c as e s. (2 ) fd o ption of Code Enf o rcement 8reas, which we should try to get designated in Atlanta. Dr. Mays said there should be a call made for Federal legislation to make funds available to help code enforcement in hardship cases. Dr. Henderson commented on EOA Grants of up $2,000.00, but which he concluded ~re apparently limited to rural areas. �-4Mr. Alexander made a suggestion that Foundations in Atlanta might provide some help and made inquiry if requirements for selection of Code Enforcement areas had been simplified; apparently they have not. Mr. f lexander then announced a special meeting for Wednesday, May 17 of principals concerned with view to determining legal implications and ways of establishing some local Code Enforcement areas whereby needy owners could qualify to receive Federal grants and loans, now authorized for Urban Renewal areas only in Atlanta. Mr. Williams. Howland reported that CACUR has experienced considerable difficulty in locating suitable properties for rehab i litation under Section 221 (h) particularly in respect to the high prices being asked for existing properties in need of major repairs and the schepticism of owners in disposing of their properties to a non-profit corporation with expectation of buying them back again after rehabilitation. Mr. Plexander announced his intention of setting up a series of Panel meetings to reorient members and establish more specific assignments and objectives. Announcement was made of the qousing Development Corporation status, i.e., incorporation has taken place; office set aside for i ts use in the Firs t Nat i onal Ba nk Building; funds have been made a va ilable; admini strative support is to come from CAP initially; now look f or a Director . The meeting adjourned at 11~05 a.m. Encls: Resolution by Chamber of Commerc e Invitatio nal notices and lists of those invited and attending (with file copy only ) �A RESOLUTION The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Direcfors, through the work of the Chamber's Housing ann 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 pr~blem, the Housing and Redevelopment Committee delivered to this Board in August, 1967 a report entitled "The Low..:.Rent Housing Gap in Atlanta," which ir.cluded 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 housing required. The Bo·a rd 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 m ulti-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. 11 . Since that time, diligent study has been given by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce to a proposed "package zoning plan, 11 the purpose of which would be to rezone simultaneously several s ites of l and thr oughout the city for development in public housing. Be it resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commer ce Board of Directors reiterates its position in support of dispersing multi-fam ily housing to all quadrants of the city. And be it further resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors supports the pr inciple of the package zoning proposal as an approach well worth considering toward the efforts to alleviate this serious problem in our community.

Baxter Regional Administrator Departm.ent of Housing and Urban Development 645 Peachtree-Sev nth Building Atlanta, Georgia 30323 Dear Mr. Baxter: With this letter I transmit an explanation of the need to convert open-space p rk l nd in the Thomasville Urb n Renewal Project, GA R-22 , to single family use. Enclosed re original and two copies of the docementation required by P ge 7 of Chapter 5 of th 11 0pen ..$pace Land Program Guide. 11 l wUl appr ci te you giving urgent considetation to this ction so that we may me t the May 20 target d te for: beginning construction of the fir t unit on the Fed r 1 Pd on urplus prop rty. Sincer ly your , lv n All n, Jr. Mayo, IAJr:fy Enclo ur s �Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. - 2 - April 25, 1968 Bec ause of the in novative cha r a cter of our operation. we are desirous of proving our case in an urban etting as contrasted with the usual s ubdivision effort . To accomplish a cost reduction in a rural area is not ae significant as to accomplish the same savings in the heart of a city like Atl a nta . These are dnys of careful experimentation in everything having to do with human relation -• and we mean to perform a s ignificant social service in the process of making the revolutionary changes tn construction techniques that will mass produce the dwelling units. m s ur _ t h t r aiul tion s r e q u ir e a co m pe titive setting tor the d lsposi -. but, by the same token, the F d eral Government . as ;you know. i s almos t desperately anxlou1:, to s ee I tion of th F g r l p n\t nu t y land , cost savings accomplished that will make it possible for low and middle income people to afford new homes without the onus of ma sive financial ub idy. This we propose to do and for this reason we earnestly requ st the privilege of using the Honor Farm land in the massive experiment for which we are now tooling up. ~e are lookin& at various factory sites for rent inside the Atlanta clty limits and , naturally, are anxious that the land we will u e for the actual subdivision will be ln close proximity. The nature of the manufacturing process will not require a great many already trained people. This works another advantage for the urban setting . 'We will be able to glve un s killed workers the modest training n cessary to manufactur and fabricate the components . As we see it then, our program for us ing the Honor Farm Land will provide three immediate benefits. First. lt will enlarge the housing inventory at very rea .:.· onable cost to the tenant and to "whatever agency is charged with subsidizing the tenant rent or µurchas . Second, it will provide employment for ignificant numb r of eemi-~killed and un skilled people in Atlanta . Third. the experimentation will natur Uy have geogr 1Jhic significance s o that my favorlt city can be known as having continued in its cours e of leadership with r ard to national urban problems. ¼e are already lnto the basic s ite desigi,J, 111 propose single famUy and multi-f mily detached unlt in addition to a modest highrlse for the eld rly and whatever shoppini center would be feasible. We will utlllz our fttreglass materials and techniques in all of the con truction in whatever degree the rticula.r s tructure makes possible. �Mayo r Ivan Allen, Jr . - 3 - April 25, l968 \t\lth such a program, the first question is al ways 1 'wh n? " . The machinery with which we will rnanuft-.cture our -,rototype m odels is a lready asse1nbled md win be sbl p ed to Atlanta as soon as we hove the factory s ite ready. The la r ger machinery will be µurchased and brought into operation as needed . We a re counting our time in weeks and will produce upwa r · E, of five hundred housing units during our t esting. Vie will an~lously a -wait the outcome of Tuesday' s meeting, and wUl consider lt a µr lvllege to ork with your people in the service of the citizens of Atlanta . Richard L. Fullerton RLF*jl cc: ~r.

COSTA �GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY ATLANTA . GEORGIA 30332 OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT April 17, 1968 Mr. Cecil Alexander Chairman Housing Resources Committee City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Alexander: I am writing in response to your requ est for an evaluation of the presentation made to the Construction and Design Subcommittee of the Housing Resources Committee by Mr. McNamara on Tuesday, March 26. You will recall tha-'c this was a presentation of a new concept for the fabrication of residential units. This concept involved p:uring on site, by use of vacuum forms, concrete elements of a standardized nature which would become elements of multi-family residential buildings. The standardized elements could be varied from job to job and from unit to unit in such a way as to make them adaptable to the needs of various sites and architectural plans. It is my opinion, as Chainnan of the Construct ion and Design Subcommittee, and that of those with whom I have talked who were present at this slide presentation, that the conc·ept is a good one but that it is at this point in time only a conc ept and not a proven plan. It is my opinion that Mr. McNamar a should find a developer who is willing to develop this idea on an actual building project involving a number of multi-family units . If such a developer can be f ound, this may well be an excellent concept to utilize in the model city program as it does r epresent one innovation i n the field of attempting to provide low income housing . The model city program should be considered because of a n ecessity for r equiring a reasonable sized t ra ct of land in order to build enough units to analyze the validity of Mr . McNamara 1 s proposed technique. It i s, after all, an experimental project and one which is yet to be proven in the field. There are many possible applications of pre-fabricated elements within these units which should be explored, but which may be restricted at this time by va_rious codes. If max_·. :Jm saving is to be attained in this kind of project, the use of prefabricated fixtures and materials ~ust be allowed subject to carefully drawn requirements. �Mr. Cecil Alexander page 2. In summary, it is our belief that this is a good concept but that it is only a concept at this time and that it does require actual· construction of a number of units in order to properly evaluate the technique on any objective basis. Sincerely yours, Edwin D. Harrison President EDH:lhs cc: Colonel Malcolm Jones/ Mr. Moreland Smith Mr. Bob Winn • �5 ;( /l. 1'0 u;-J(i c>c·.

The erant may be made only to rehabilitate the property to the extent that the Secretar.y determines necessary to make it meet reasonable underwriting standards imposed by the statewide plan, The Secretary of Rehabilitation loans 'rhe rehabilitation loan program has been broadened in the same manner as the rehabilitation grant program with respect to properties located outside urban renewal and code enforcem:nt areas and those found to be uninsurable. ( The amount authorized t o be appropriated for each fiscal year is increased from $100 million to ~150 million ru1d the program is extended to June 30, 1973 (in lieu of the previous expiration date of October 1, 1969). Eligibility for residential rehabilitati on loans is limited to persons whose annual income is within the locally applicable income limits for the section 221 (d) (3) below-market interest rate program. Limit on LPA rehabilitation in urban renewal areas The previous limits on the acquisition and rehabilitation of residential properties by local rene wal agencies are r e moved. Under prior law, an LPA could acqu:!.re and rehabilitate for demonstration purpos es no more than 100 units or 5 perc ent of the total residential units in en urban renewal area, whichever is lesser. Dis osition of ro ert, for low and moderate income housintL_ Land in an urban renewal area is authorized to be leased i n addition to being sold as previously provided) for low or moderate income housing at a price consistent with the use for that purpose. A builder is permitted to purchase the land at the write-down price for low or moderate income sales housing. Under this provision land can also be made available at the write-down price for housing assisted under the 221(h) program, and the new interest reduction payment programs authorized by the Act for homeownership and multifamily housing. Grants for low and moderate income housi ng in open land projects Grants are authorized for open land urban renewal projects where the land is to be disposed of for low and moderate incomP. housing. Previously, open land projects were not eligible for grants. The grant may be for �14 two-thirds of the differenc e between the proceeds from any land dicpoaed of at its value for low or moderate income housing and the proceeds which would have been realized if the land had been disposed of at its fair value without regard to its special use. Demolition grants - rat harborar:es The Demolition Grant Program is expanded to permit grants for the demolition of structures which are rat harborages or potential rat harborages. Use of air rights sites for educational facilities Air-rights urban renewal projects, and the construction of necessary foundations and platforms in any type project, are authorized for the development of educational facilities. As in the case of industrial development, an air-rights project and the construction of foundations and platforms would only be available for educational facilities if the area is unsuitable for low or moderate income housing purposes. Low and moderate income housing in residential urban renewal areas A majority of the total number of housing units in a community's (__ residential urban renewal projects which receive Federal recognition after August 1, 1968 must be for low and moderate income families or individuals, with at least 2~ of such total for low income · families or individuals. The Secretary may waive the 20i requirement to the extent that the units are not needed in the community. Workable program requirements in case of Indian tribes An additional period of time, until January 1, 1970, is provided for Indian tribes, bands, or nations to adopt and carry out minimum standards housing codes for workable program certification. · Interim assistance for blighted areas The Secretary of HUD is authorized to contract to make grants aggregating up to $15 million a year to cities or counties to assist them in taking interim steps to alleviate harmful conditions in slum or blighted areas of communities which are planned for substantial clearance, rehabilitation, or federally assisted code enforcement in the near future, but which need ~ome immediate public action until permanent action can be taken . The Secretary is required to encourage employment of unemployed or under-employed residents of an assisted area in carrying out the activities to be assisted.

TITLE J;I - LR PAN PROP~RTY PROTECTION AND REIN.stRArJCE _T itle XI enacts the "Urban Property Protection and Rernsurance Act of 1968." ( Under this Act the Secretary of HI.JD is authorized to provide private .insurers with reinsurance against losses resulting from riots or civil disorders. The sale of reinsurance is limited to those insurers that cooperate with State insurance authorities in developin~ statewide plans to assure fair access to insurance requirements, called FAIR plans. Reinsurance may only be provided in States which have such plans. FAIB plans may vary among the States, but all plans must satisfy minimum statutory criteria. The principal requirement is that no risk can te written at the surcharged rate or denied covera~e unless there has teen an inspection of the property and a determi nation made that it does not meet reasonable underwriting standards at the applicable premium. Additional requirements relate to the procedures to be followed with respect to inspections, the provision of reasonable notice to property owners of cancellation or nonrenewal of policies, and the formation of an all-industry facility which will place the insurance in the r egu lar market. S1; ch •'AIR Plans are to be administered under the supervi sion of the State insurance auth ority. As a condition for providing reinsurance in a State, the Secretary can require additional programs to make property insurance available without regard to environmental hazards. Reinsurance is offere d in standards lines of property insurance coverage and can be pr ovid ed ·immediately followin g enactment by means of a binder agreement, which expires aft er 90 days unl es s sooner replaced by a reinsurance contract. Premium rates and the terms and conditions of reinsurance contracts are to be uniform throughout the country. The premiums for the fi rst year must provide sufficient income to cover a level of riot losses in excess of the amount of insured riot losses in 1967. �21 A .~ 1.at,p ir: 1'(!:Jt·~n· t: Lo a:-st, rr.r. .J. nnrtiori of t,hr. :u . :-.t•,s rr :in::i : rr·d r;; Lhf: Secn,t-.:i:·y 1d t,hh1 'l /£';-tr ·:' r l-:;i !,!i n r:lr.~:r. n:· i k; n1•:d. n .f'! l: !r· lr:r·i;.]:1',iw"? se ~r- i on. fhc ceil:i rw ori t.bn share 1-: ill h! c;~ o · ·.1.,. rrr·r ,,r t,~.- i: r: 1 r;"Jr.c,·.· rrc"? n:i 1 ms, r..J.rrir ·u in 1.lir: :jt:lt,r. on rr-h:st ·!'f'd ljr:r. ~; c, I' nror " rl,.' j n!:'t i r:1r:c n . ~-L.cr. sharirw 1-!i. 11 onl, h ,• r rrit j rc:rl j J' r r. instir,..,cJ .! o:::sr:s cxc,·rcl r remi!:rnr-: raid f or nd.r:s tr,1r iCf: b;.· i1s1 : r;i1 1CP. cor.,r-ad r f in that.

  • Text: April 22, 1968 Memorandwn To: Mayor Allen Dan E. Sweat, Jr. I;: a.,..___ Director of Governmental Liaison From: Attached are two memorandwns dated April 18 and April 19 respectively, prepared by Malcolm Jones, re the Honor Farm No. l site and containing some specific recommendations for getting housing development started there soon. Collier, 1alcolm and I have discussed the at t ached and I believe are in general agreement except possibly Malcolm's recommendation that the 24 acre portion of the site, currently desi gnated for a Junior Hi gh School-Communit y Center development, be converted to additional low-income housing. It appears too early yet to mal<:e such determination. The urgency f or starting development on the 15 single-family lots is to meet Federal insistance for ground breaking in May on at least a token development for low-income housing. (Tb.is would pl ace Atlanta first on actual utilization of Federal dedicated sites for low-income housing) . The concensus of opinion now seems to be to assume that development will not be thru the Urban R~newal process. If you concur in this at this t i.Iiie, the following steps should be taken immediately to get the ball rolling: a. A~k the Housing Authority to get a stor y or advertisement in the newspapers not later than April 28, alerting interested developers �Page 2 Memorandum To: Mayor Allen April 22, 1968 that proposals will be called for soon and as close to May 1, 1968 as possible, for submittal within 30 days. b. Request the Housing Authority to prepax·e package invitations, containing essential material, to interes t ed developers as soon as possible (with target date of May 1) for ~ubmittal of proposals within 30 days; for starting construction within 6 months after the award; and for completing construction within 2 years from starting date. c. 15 Plan for review of proposals and selection of developer within days after submittal of proposals.

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 �

  • Text: TO: The Housing Resources Committee of Atlanta FROM: Sub-Committee on Public Housing During the last year the Sub-Committee on Public Housing held numberless meetings with many community leaders and visited a great many acceptable sites for projects. After days and nights of discussions and tireless blending of opinions, plans for action were unaminously agreed. rhe only logical conclusion was reached that (1) subsidized housing must be fairly distributed throughout the city and, (2) that the only politically feasible way to do this was by a "package deal" simultaneously presented to Council by the Mayor and Atlanta Housing Authority with overwhelming community support. Our full Committee, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, the Ma yor ' s Citizens Advisory Committee, church organizations and many others approved and endorsed such procedure. But when submitted to the Housing Authority the Authority stated it hadn't studied the plan, failed to approve or disapprov~but instea d proceeded with the single shot approach which had failed before. The r esult wa s continuing turn downs of rezoning by the Aldermanic zoning powers . . I t is the opinion of the Sub ~Committee on Public Housing t hat i t is not too late to resubmit those rejected z on i ng appl i c a tions t hr ough the "pack age plan" on a simultaneous b a sis t o mee t th e city ' s n eeds for subsid ized hous i ng an d that the Mayor , the Board of Alderman and th e Atlanta Housing Author ity shoul d proceed to do so forthwith . If the same energy, zea l and l ead er s hip of our " power structure" and c i ty offi c ia ls t h at was mobil ized to bu i ld our dazzling stadium, luxu~y apartments and magn i ficent h otel s and office buildings in our urb a n redevelopment a r eas had been applied with equal energy, zeal and lea d ership to providing subsidized housing for those who were bu l ldozed out of slums to make room for these majestic structures, the goal of public housing our Mayor publicly proc l aimed so long ago would now be nearly reached. �. -2. ; We have done wonders for the rich. Now, let us do wonders for the poor! Therefore, as Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Public Housing and on its behalf, I move that our full Committee does now reaffirm its position on "package rezoning", and calls upon its fellow organizations of the city and those responsible for its implementation to cooperate to put it into effect.

  • Text: I r w ISIO WHITE COLUMNS ON PEACHTREE CHANNEL 2, ATLANTA, GA. 30309 AN EDITORIAL OPINION •.• •• ••• January 2, 1969 VIEWPOINT An official expression of the editorial opinion of the management of WSB Television. "Who is my neighbor?" If you live in Atlanta, here's a modern day answer to that 2,000 year old question. These are your neighbors. Some live in these homes because they are lazy; some because they don't know any better; but most because there is simply no other place to live in this city of a million. For too long, most of us have passed by our slum neighbors on the other side of the road. But the good Samaritans are among us today, too. In 1966, Mayor Allen set a goal - almost 17,000 new housing units in the next five years. It was a modest goal actually aimed only at keeping us about even in the fight against rotte n housing. Since then, Atlanta architect Cecil Alexander has sacrificed much of his own profit-making time as a non-paid chairman of the Mayor's Housing Resources Committee. And Malcolm Jones, a retired Army Colonel, has been the full-time working head of the big housing pus h. At the · e nd of the first two years, the program is amazingly "on schedule". Except in one important area: The city is 4,000 units behind in the goal rJr public housing. Behind in the very area where the need is greatest, where this family must live --in new units that can be rented or purchase d at $30 to $50 per month. Of all the units built or started since 19 66, private enterprise has not b~en able to build anything to re nt o r sell for l ess than $60 a month. That i s not to s a y tha t priv a t e builders have not tried. They have done a fine job. But the high co st of l and and labor and zoning problems have effectively prevented the building of tr~ly low co st housing. That me ans that our gove rnme nt , which is anothe r way of say ing -you a nd I , i s appare ntly the only Samaritan who can change the life of a boy like this.

  • Text: WHITE COLUMNS ON PEACHTREE CHANNEL 2, ATLANTA, GA. 30309 AN EDITORIAL OPINION .... . .. . January 3, 1969 VIEWPOINT - An official e x pression of the editorial opinion of the management of WSB Television. American Builder Magazines' Centennial issue asked a hard question: "Who really give a damn about housing?" And answers: · "Not the cities - they're headed for a decade of failure. "Not the suburbs - they couldn't care less." "Not the rural areas - everyone's leaving them." "Not the power structure - all they do is talk, talk, talk." Then the magazine recognizes Atlanta as one of the few oasis in a desert of apathy. Because Mayor Allen, Dan Sweat, Cecil Alexander and Malcolm Jones have pushed us far ahead of other cities. But still not far enough. Even the Mayor's crash program falls short of help in the area of the greatest need: units that will rent or sell for $30 to $50 a month. So what can be done? Here is what WSB Television considers some key recommendations: The Federal Housing Act some loans for home ownerships at there's not enough money for this other housing programs. Congress the money. of 1968 allows the FHA to make one per cent interest! But project - or for many of the must see the crisis - and vote Building ·codes must be updated to allow for new, more economical assembly-line building techniques and materials. Building trade unions must stop discriminating and start.helping to train mo~e · workmen. _ Private enterprise must b~ able to build truly low cost housing at a profit. Senator Robert Kennedys suggestions for t ax benefits offer the best hope for that. (more) COX BROADCASTING CORPORATION stotion1: WSB AM-FM-TV, Atlonto • · WIOD AM-FM, Mioml e WHIO AM-FM -TV, Doyton • WSOC AM -FM-TV, Charlotte KTVU, Son Fronci1co •Ooklcnd • WIIC-TV, Pittsburgh �r What private enterprise so far has not built in Atlanta, must then be built as public housing. And some of this public housing can be built in present slum pockets even in Northside Atlanta. One of the most difficult problems in Atlanta is to find land at a reasonable price zoned for apartments. WSB Television suggests the expressways. That's right the expressways! Not on the pavement during rush hour traffic. But in the air space over the freeways! Not only is it possible to build housing over the expressways but it has been done in other cities. The land is already.owned by the government. And the government encourages use of the valuable air space for such necessary urban projects as housing. Incidentally, for rapid transit, too. Without the expressways, only 200 to 400 acres inside Atlanta are zoned for apartments. With the air space over the freeways there would be a minimum of 2,700 acres of expressway rightof-way within the city of Atlanta. Already there's plenty of parking available e very rush hour. �
