MARSHALL TECHNICAL ADVISORS Cc, BRON CLEVELAND PAUL MULDAWER EuizA PASCHAL August 5,1969 Mayor Ivan Allen, Chairman Model Cities Executive Beard City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: In a Model Cities Steering Committee meeting on July 31, 1969, a motion was carried to approve the Model Neighborhood, Inc. economic development program, pending written communications of information conveyed by a con- sultant at the meeting on the following two concerns; (1) expansion of MNI Board and (2) MNI Directorship. The following action was taken at a special Board meeting on July 30, 1969 of Model Neighborhood Inc. (1) MNI Board agreed to expand its Board to include more members with the stipulation that they be residents of the Model Cities area. Although the Board agrees in principle that the addition of professional businessmen on their Board would benefit the corporation, it disagreed with adding, specifically (5) "Black" businessmen because of the racial overtones of such an action. The Board also felt that sophisticated "out-side" business interest ( on the Board ) would not enhance the basic concept of self-help. The Board however, did agree that the Advisory Board would meet monthly in order to review the program progress and financial expenditures. This action was agreed Mayor Ivan Allen August 5, 1969 to by the Advisory Board. At an earlier Board meeting, there was re-election of officers. Mr. Joe Stallings was elected chair- man and Rev. Joel Marshall vice-chairman. The Board also ruled that no member of the staff could hold a position on the Board. All staff members have resigned from the Board. (2) The Board hired Mr. Samuel Cochran as Executive Director. Mr. Moody,to benefit the corporation, agreed to work ina line position. He is to receive a contract with specific duties as out- lined in a scope of services. The Model Cities Steering Committee voted to approve MNI's program upon receiving the above information in writing. The committee instructed MNI to forward this information on to the Executive Board via letter for your consideration.

  • Text: ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ATLANTA - MODEL CITIES PROGRAM The Regional Economic Development and Business Service:Center Atlanta University The objective of this report is to provide Atlanta's Model Cities officials with a working tool to assist in the planning for Economic Development activities in the Model Neighborhood Program Area. Rather than wait until the Center's work on this subject is complete, we have prepared a preliminary description of two items: One is the various problems and conditions affecting the lives of business people in this area. The other is the reactions of these business people in this area. To what they feel, rightly or wrongly, are the conditions under which they live. A full understanding and empathy with what they face and what they feel is a prerequiste to improving current socioeeconomic resources and developing new ones. It is also neces- sary in order to plan effective for economic development in the area. The style of this preliminary report, therefore, was deliberately chosen to communicate this understanding. In order to faciliate the use of socio-economic information use in other studies conducted by the Center at the same time, it was neces- sary to anticipate our final results. This has been done through an analysis of all our available local data and where necessary, an inter- polation of this data based on the results of research conducted elsewhere. The local data has been developed from three major sources, First, we held nearly fifty individual interviews with businessmen operating a business in the program area. During these interviews, the problems, attitudes, and reactions to existing services and con- ditions were investigated. The second source of data was developed through using graduate students attached to the Center's staff who spent a total of about sixteen (16) weeks primarily in the five different neighborhoods (one or two blocks in size), Their work involved the use of informal and unstructured interviewing techniques as well as simply continous observation of day-to-day movements, This secorid approach provided us with much more depth of understanding than could be obtained through more typical survey techniques. The third source of data is the available local stitistics on income, employment, family characteristics, health, and other factors. Most of the local data that we have thus far collected is from the program area. This area of approximately 3, 000 acres containing slightly less than 50,000 residents is bound by the East Expressway on the north, the Central of Georgia Railroad on the west, Atlanta and West Point Railroad on the south and east. The six communities of Grant Park, Summerhill, Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, and Adair Park compose the target area. Some of our investigations, however, have been conducted in other areas of Atlanta. On the basis of this comparative information, we feel that, while there are a EA EE eg a differences among different areas, most of the preliminary conclusions in this report are applicable to other low income areas of Atlanta. In the overall view of needs and assigning priorities to these needs, it is immediately evident that these represent problems of substantial magnitude for the marginal and sub-marginal businesses in the Model Cities Area, The provisions of the Model Cities Program, theoretically, created an ideal situation for the small entrepreneur ina relocation situation, At first glance, it would appear that, by and large, these persons would be anxious to relocate in modern, well planned facilities; as opposed to the dilapidated, dingy and antiquated structures in which they presently operate. We have had an opportunity to converse with many of these business-~- men, white and black, within the inner city, and the reaction has been less than pleasant anticipation. Many realize that their problem is that of selective or captive patronage. This is coupled with the lack of managerial capacity to appeal to a total market, If they are required to move to a new location then they will for all practical purposes, lose their patronage. Many further feel that if they are eventually moved back to their present locations, they feel that the financial requirement necessary to acquire modern furnishings and fixtures would be prohibitive. Most persons who have operated for some period of time are of the opinion that they would not be able to be more than marginal operators. The reasons given are age, financial resources, and lack of academic training. Attention to a report submitted by a consultant for the Regional Economic Development and Business Service Center, indis cates similar findings as a result of a study conducted in a similar area. At this point the Center recommends the assigning of top priority in these cases and make the development of managerial training course an integral part of the transition period. It is felt that such a program would contribute immensely to assisting these persons enhance their managerial skills, as well as demonstrating the advantages of appeal- ing to a total market. Even considering those who would return to present sites, it would do much in improving the ability to render service in his given area. This is presently lacking rm most of the small, individual pro- prietorhsips in the area. This could be done through the Center conducting managerial seminars on campus sites and/or in the various communities. These seminars could be conducted and attendance requirement made a part of the relocation subsidy which these persons would receive as a part of the Model Cities relocation provisions. ase ea These seminars would serve to assist in making many of these persons aware of the various government programs available in easing the adjustment of relocation. The foregoing recommendation would consist of programming the general managerial needs of these neighborhood enterprises. This would include choosing and improving sites, exposure to the various marketing techniques useful to small business, raising of capital, ) record-keeping and personnel management. Program should be de- signed to include the above items, but not limited thereto, Coordination of such a program could be implemented by the Cane ter. Personnel could be selected from the School of Business of Atlanta University, as well as the cooperating universities in the Atlanta area. This would make for a comprehensive program of Economic Development and Technical Assistance, It should be empha- sized that these programs and seminars would be geared to the level of academic preparation brought to the seminar by these entrepreneurs of the communities in question. This would be in oppostition to many pro- grams heretofore developed which would not lend themselves to mean- ingful participation by such persons due to limited academic or commercial preparation. It would be further recommended that the Center would use contact resources to encourage on-going industries to locate in these areas. It would be well to emphasize that such industries would initially install ae MR a a Pd sh ae SA NGS RIT RN PO ST ME ia Se ST ee te SF ae — their own management personnel with efforts made to train and promote local personnel to these position in phases, The Center could initiate programs which would facilitate the rath grading of the local personnel in the direction of first-line management. There could be further efforts, engaging the sources of the Center, to seek out and determine the feasibility of the expansion and/or creation of service industry enterprises that indicate a possibility of success operating or based in these areas, but again, not limited to the respece- tive communities. There is an immediate need for the foregoing provisions. There could be immense benefits derived from such an undertaking, and it is felt that from these a meaningful program of Economic Development could be designed for these communities with long-term implications.

The $72,000 mentioned in the material is OEO money to be made available for residents of Model Cities to receive technical assistance and training. An OEO-HUD agreement requires that EOA, Model Cities, and the City of Atlanta jointly select an accountable community group to receive the contract for these monies. The group that has been selected is the Steering Committee of the Model Cities Mass Convention. This group has a firm basis for democratic selection and participation in the Model Cities community and can be held accountable by the residents through the annual election process. \ Sincerely yours, rs ~ f ye 1 1 CA ASS T.

It seems as if the younger minds are more alert than some of the not so young onese The class is doing a Social Sciences Project on Summerhill, but the questions asked, were related to the entire Model Cities Area. Some of the areas the young people touched upon were; How did the area look twenty years ago and how will it look twenty years from today? Were there any famous and well known people living in the area and are there any living here now? Will the Area be res- tored to it's once stately residential status? Where do areca residents shop for food and clothing? These and many other avenues of thinking were discussed. This makes me wonder Area residents that if our children are so concerned about our Area, then should'nt we be? We should make plans, along with Model Cities to assure our children that their dreams about the Arca are not fruitless. We as parents and residents, should let the Model Citics planners know what "WE" want for our- selves and our children. We should nake demands and not back down until we are assured that we have been heard. We should so concern and involve ourselves, that we will not go un-noticed.Just because most of the We must above all do this with respect and dignity.

  • Text: MEMORANDUM To; Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. From: Dan Sweat Subject: Edward Moody Following is a list of events concerning Edward Moody and the develop- ment cf Medel Neighborhood, Inc. Le imoody was permanently employed by the Parks Department as a Community Recreation Leader on September 26, 1966. His salary was $340.90 a month. He was dismissed on May 24, 1967. He was dismissed because of conflict with the staff with which he was - working. He was reassigned to another community center but walked off the job. He was subsequently dismissed. He was employed again by the City on March 5, 1968, as a Community Worker on the Model Cities staff. His salary was $240.00 a month. He was dismissed on May 14, 1968, for failure to follow directions, On January 18, 1968, the group known as Model Neighborhood, Inc. (which was in its third year of existence) became a chartered non- profit organization, after being advised to do so in order to be eligible for federal grants, foundation funds and seed money from different agencies to finance its programs and projects. Edward Moody is ks and Bron Cleveland and Robert W. Waymer are consultants. Mayor Allen Page Two . July 4, DS :fy 1, 1969 On October 22, 1968, Mr. Moody received a letter from Johnny Johnson informing him that his corporation, Model Neighborhood, Inc., would receive $6,000 from the City of Atlanta's Model Cities Program, It was an EDA grant for economic development in the Model Neighborhood Area. This money was approved by the Model Cities Executive Board, the Board of Aldermen and the Mayor. In May 1968 MNI was granted a $10, 800 loan from the Trust Company of Georgia to obtain an option on Atlanta Housing Authority property at Georgia Avenue and McDaniel Street. See attached memo from George Berry. Economic Development Aciministration grant - totaling $121, 750 of which 86, 780 is a federal cash contribution and 35,000 comes from the City of Atlanta (Technical Assistance Grant Project No. 04-6-09154) - was given upon a strong recommendation of the Atlanta City Demonstration Agency (check their letter to EDA of January 27, 1969). Responsibilities of the corporation; 1, Outreach program - providing technical assistance to primarily minority entrepreneurs ; 2. Planning and development of a shopping center or similar faciliti: 2 in the Model Cities Area. The EDA grant was approved on May 13, 1969, by Robert A. Podesta for a 12 month period. Atlanta CDA approval influenced this decision heavily. The Small Business Administration approved a $50, 000 loan to MNI in June 1969 (last week) to be used in the development and operation of the MNI manufacturing plant. The manufacturing plant is located on Georgia Avenue and produces women's casual apparel. The Steering Committee of the Mass Ccnvention met Tuesday, June 24, 1969, and voted 7 - 0 against the MNI grant request for $35,000 Model Cities supplemental funds to match the EDA grant. Two members abstained, six were absent.

ANN M, MOSES, Executive Secretary July 1, 1969 DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Dan Sweat, Jr. From: George Berry Subject: Status of Sale of Shopping Center Site by Atlanta Housing Authority to Model Neighborhood, Inc. At your request, I have talked with Philip Vrooman, Disposition Officer of the Atlanta Housing Authority for a rundown on the status of this transaction, It seems that this is considered a very unusual transaction as far as the Housing Authority is concerned. The initial proposition was made without the benefit of a written proposal and after the proposed sale had been announced publicly, the Housing Authority personnel assisted the Model Neighborhood, Inc. in preparing a proposal that would satisfy the require- ments of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The written proposal is dated May 22, 1968. It proposes to buy the two parcels involved for a total of $216,500.00. When-the sale was first proposed, Model Neighbor- hood, Inc. paid over to the Housing Authority $10,800.00. These funds were borrowed from the Trust Company of Georgia and require some sort of quarterly payment, We understand that these payments are being met from the proceeds of the $6, 000.00 granted to the organization through EDA in 1968. The proposal conditioned the sale of the property on Model Neighborhood, Inc. being able to secure a loan for the balance which in turn necessitates securing commitments from a sufficient number of tenants to make the venture economi- cally feasible. Mr. Vrooman states that there have been many conferences with Mr. Moody over the past year in an attempt to assist his organization in meeting this condition but, while Mr. Moody and his associates have appeared confident and determined, these commitments have not been obtained as yet. July 1, 1969 Memo to Dan Sweat, Jr. Page Two The written proposal that was drawn up for this proposed sale does not have a time period written in which places any time limit cn when this commitment must be met, Further, the way Mr. Vrooman interprets the document, the $10, 800.00 is refundable if Model Neighborhood, Inc. does not consumate the sale. Asa matter of fact, there seems to be some confusion at the Housing Authority as to what the $10,800.00 is because the Authority has never deposited the check even though it was received a year ago. Mr. Vrooman states that at the last conference that was held with Mr. Moody a few weeks ago, he stated that it looked like it would be about six (6) months before the transaction could be consumated. Very truly yours, neorge Berry GB:p
