  • Text: January 29, 1969 MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD Conducted a meeting January 21, 1969, at 10:00 a.m. requested by Mr. J. W. Brown of Royai Knights re development of a housing project in Attended by: J. ¥. Brown, Royal Knights John Steinichen, Interfaith Collier Gladin, Planning Director Howard Openshaw, Housing Authority Hugh Peterson, King & Spalding Reece Cleghom, Atlanta Journal Paul Muldower, Architect Jim Robinson, Consultant, Urban East Carl Ware, Consultant, Urban East Brown stated that an appraiser, Ronald Curry, had recently provided him an estimated cost of $367,00 for about a 10-acre tract in the south- east corner of Vine City, Brown said this is too much money for the Royal Knights to handle, e@pecially on which to develop a housing project designed to rent for about $60 per unit per month; that the Urban East Consultants had advised him that it is possible to obtain Federal financial assistance on such a project in an Urban Renewal (NDP) project, for planning and advance land acquisition. Openshaw explained that th is possible, but the area involved must conform to overall plans for the larger area, now approved for Planning during 1969 in the NDP program; that general plans for the area s be developed by the Housing Authority by July 1, for submission to the Federal Government by October 1, for inclusion for action during the 1970 increment of NDP; and that he would develop such plans only with the participation of representative people in the aren. Gladin exph@ined the general planning implications of the Vine City area as relate to the NDP and the larger earea of NASH-BANS; that the NASH-BANS Committee had opposed the Vine City development being separate from the larger NDP overall development and that the final agreement with the City was that the NASH-BANS Committee would be kept informed of proposed developments in the smaller area of Vine City proper and that the planning thereof would be coordinated with the NASH-BANS Committee; but that NASH~BANS dees not necessarily possess a veto power. Brown responsed by insisting that Royal Knights and the Vine City Foundation are representative groups of Vine City; that sbout 2 years 2 Ae i Re | ee Tee MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD January 29, 1969 Page 2 have elasped since the original proposal; that during that tine nothing eoncrete has evolved for Vine City through the NASH-BANS organization. Brown further stated that the people of Vine City are tired of waiting for complete agreement of NASH-BANS aad they want to go shead now and get something accomplished on their own; that these groups were respousible for getting up the petition which lead to the inclusion of Vine City in the 1969 NDP and therefore they deserve recognition as legitimate representatives of people in the area. Brown also steted thet unless something positive gets started soon in Vine City that the pressures already there would become terrific and that very adverse consequences might develop; that he could easily get 100 or more persons daily to protest on the steps of City Hall and at Aldermanic Committee meetings but they preferred not to do this, but to sork with the City in a peaceful, domocratic and cooperative manner, as he is now proposing. Reece Cleghorn, who was representing his Church in the Vine City improveuent effort (and not as a Journal reporter), stated he had done considerable work over a period of time in the Vine City aren and thet he believes the Royal Knights, which is already incorporated as a nonprofit group, and the Vine City Foundation are as representative groups of the area as can be obtained. Jim Robinson stated that he had advised Brown that it is possible for ee oa eae aeseae representative groups in a NDP area for planning by PAC ( Project Activity Committee) and for sdvance land acquisition during the planning phase of 2 NDP project; that LPA letter Ne. 458 provides for this, but he adwited to me Inter that this document is rather vague and subject to various interpretetions. Peterson explained that the Housing Authority may delegate planning of a particular area to a neighborhood group but would have to retain responsibility fer it. Cleghorn asked who makes the actual decision as to the type of development to be carried out ~ the Housing Authority or someone dse? It wea explained that this rests in the finel analysis with the Board of Aldermen, following a Public Hea and subsequent concurrance of the Housing authority Board (s#ith the ne group involved, the Housing —_ che ahah and the Planning Department working cooperatively in developing p Steinchen advised that Interfeith is only interested in helping Vine City in development of a housing and neighborhood improvement program. eaeee seaeeneee See gece Se oo - $76,900 would be required to employ competent Planning and Housing Consultants te develop on ahie euuprohenaive plan for Vine City oné that this should be the first step in their objective. He emphasized however, that the people in the area, currently represented by Royal Knights and SS Se ee a a Vine City Foundation, whose Se ae = ere a a hl MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD January 29, 1969 Page 3 activities might combine, want to select the Consultants, hire them and work directly with them in carly development ofaaplan for the area. Jones encouraged further exploration by the Planning Department and Housing Authority of the feasibility of Brown's proposal. Openshaw agreed to schedule an exploratory meeting in the near future with appropriate HUD officials to determine whether what Brown is proposing can be done within the aisting framework of NDP and to endenver to ferret out the implications and mechanics involved. The meeting was adjourned in a cordial atmosphere. Malcolm D. Jones Housing Coordinator MDJ/mo ec: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. Cecil A. Alexander —— 1

  • Text: Sf aye Aliana Lourie “Covers Dixie Like the Dew” Since 1883 Jack Tarver, President Jack Spalding, Editor * EDITORIALS Low-Cost Housing Gap THE HOUSING Resources Committee heard Thursday that Mayor Ivan Allen's five- ~ year, low-cost housing goal of 16,800 replace- _Ment units by 1971 was sure of being met. This is encouraging. ‘But the goal, unfortunately, falls far be- low the mammoth commitment needed if city leaders are determined to wipe out the ter- rible slum conditions that breed violence and volatile resentment. Noting this, the HRC voted unanimously at its second annual meeting to endorse and push for approval of the zoning ‘‘package plan” designed to pave the way for low-cost housing throughout all sections of the city - simultaneously. Is this too much to expect? The answer apparently has been yes— judging by the silent reception the plan has received from the aldermanie Planning and Development Committee and the Zoning Com- mittee since it was received for study last ' August. Both committees were to seek information from the Planning Department. Now, more than four months later, Planning Department Director Collier Gladin has reported no sub- stantial progress has been made to implement ~ the package plan. HRC Chairman Cecil Alexander put the need for the package plan in proper perspec- tive last August. “It's like this,’ he told the _aldermen, “either we house the poor or we have within our midst, if not in this~ genera- tion, then certainly in the next, an alienated people ready to grasp by force what-we would _not provide when there was yet time.” The true indication of the meager success in providing adequate low-cost housing units so far in Atlanta comes from a statement released by the Atlanta Housing Authority Wednesday. For the first time in Atlanta urban renewal history, said the AHA, housing construction in 1968 exceeded the number of units demolished. Tn other words, Atlanta has virtually been standing still, if not going backwards, in at-- tacking its low-cost problem in recent vears. Therefore, it is not surprising to count the number of responsible community organi- zations supporting the package plan. They include the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, the Community Council of the Atlanta Area Inc., Central Ailanta Progress Inc., the Wom- en’s Chamber of Commerce, the League of 2-A DECEMBER 14, 1968 Women Voters, the Christian Council of Met- ropolitan Atlanta, Inc., and the Metropolitan Atlanta Conference on Housing. It is time that the conscience of the com- munity be heard,

  • Text: WSB TELEVISION X TE WHITE COLUMNS ON PEACHTREE CHANNEL 2, ATLANTA, GA. 30309 Mi 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 rotten 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 push. At the end 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 for 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 purchased at $30 to $50 per month. Of all the units built or started since 1966, private enterprise has not been able to build anything to rent or sell for less than $60 a month. That is not to say that private builders have not tried. They have done a fine job. But the high cost of land and labor and zoning problems have effectively prevented the building of truly low cost housing. That means that our government, which is another way of saying you and I, is apparently the only Samaritan who can change the life of a boy like this. # # # COX BROADCASTING CORPORATION stations: WSB AM-FM-TV, Atlanta @® WHIO AM-FM-TV, Dayton @ WSOC AM-FM.-TV, Charlotte WIOD AM-FM, Miami e KTVU, San Francisco-Ookland ° WIIC-TV, Pittsburgh

Mr. Cotsakis commented on revision of the Building Codes for the City of Atlanta, particularly to allow experimental housing to be built in the Model Cities area. He said that if any one had any chnges of the Building Codes which they desired be made, that they should bring proposals for specific changes to the attention of the Building Committee, Mr, Alexander then called on Malcolm Jones to semment on the accomplishments of the Housing Resources Committee, Mr. Jones said that November 15, 1968, mayked the completion ef the first two years’ activity of the Housing Resources Committee in its effort to promete and accelerate the Loweincome Housing Program in Atlanta, for which the goal was 16,800 low and medium income housing units during a five year period (1967-71), announced by the Mayor in his Housing Conference establishing the HRC on November 15, 1966, He then stated that tho fivo. yoar goal is new in the pipeline and that the current status of the lew and medium income housing program shews: Conpleted 3,217 units Under Construction 6,278 units In Planning 7,337 units In Sight Leos units Total This slightly exceeds (by 32 units) the 5 year geal of 16,800 units and is only 305 units shorxt, in the first two categories, of the agticipated need for 9,800 units during the first two years of the program. Page 2 He also stated that the Housing Resources Committee has accomplished; 1. 2-6 10, il, 12. 13, Promotion of low and medium income housing and coordination of efforts in this field, Establishment of the Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation to assist local non- profit housing corporations, Acceptance by the Federal Government of use of prefabricated relocateable units as temporary relocation housing.

Worked with Model Cities" staff in establishing its rehabilitation program and in site selection for experimental housing, Pointed out to City officials the necessity for the principle that site selection for low-income housing should include a planning function and responsibility. Page 3 Mr. Jones then stated the six requests which were made to the Planning and Development Committee and the Zoning Committee in Special Meeting on August 2, 1968: 1. Asked the Mayor to deSignate either an existing committee or appoint a new committee of the Board of Aldermen to assume a responsibility in the field of low-income housing. 2. Revision of the Building Codes for the City of Atlanta, particularly to allow experimental housing to be built in the Model Cities area, 3.

Adoption of a revised district zoning map based on the new Land Use map to include adequate areas for low-income housing. Mr, Jones then pointed out results to date of the above indicated requests, Mr. Aiexander then called on Mr. W. W. Gates, Consultant to the Committee, to discuss the Implications of the 1968 Housing Act. Mr. Gates opened by stating that the National Housing Act was passed by Congress on August 1, 1968, that the legislation provides the tools f£:incentives and success in meeting the national cbjective will large depend on: Sponsor interest Availability of land at a reasonable price The mortgage money market Municipal cooperation Funding by the Congress in 1969 » Building code and zoning restrictions Qo ® GD! ir. Gates then dascussed four sections of the Act: Section 238, Section 237, Section 236 and Section 235. Section 238: Establishes a new fpecial Risk Insurance Fund which permits the Federal Housing Administration to assume Page 4 higher mortgage insurance risks in connection with both location and credit charachteristics that were unacceptable under the mutual mortgage insurance fund, section 237: Provides, on an experimental basis, FHA mortgage insurance to finance home ownership for low income families who wouid not qualify under normal credit standards. é Section 236: The tenant under this program will pay 25% of his famils © income and HUD will pay the difference between the amount collected and the amount of the rent. Limited to families whose incomes are not in excess of 135% of initial admission leveis of public housing. section 235: This section places heavy emphasis on home ownership and provides that if the purchaser of a new home or 2 living unit in a condomimium will pay at least 20% of the family's income and HUD will pay the balance of the monthly mortgage payments. Mr. Gates ciosed his discussion by stating that “The impact of this bill on housing should be tremendous. The tools are available as never before." Mr. Alexander then discussed Future Direction of the Committees. He said that the Committee requests that the Mayor and Board of Aldermen give consideration to these proposals and advise us accordingly in a revised statement of mission for the Committee; 1. All bodies concerned with housing review the present and continuing need for low income housing. 2. Eliminate existing slums and provide housing as needed in the area for those who wish to remain there. 3. Place housing near jobs and public facilities in the City of Atlanta and throughout the metropolitan area. 4, Continue efforts to promote innovative low-income housing construction in Atlanta. 5. Continue to aid efforts to eliminate social problems connected with housing. 6. Further involve the business community in the housing program. 7. Assist nonprofit groups and developers in their efforts to obtain land and construct housing. Page 5 8. Promote and explain the new general housing act and the fair housing act. 9. Consider national and local legislation usefull to the housing program. 19. Assist in the stabilization of existing neighborhoods and encourage the construction of middle and upper income residential developments in the City of Atlanta, ll. Attempt to involve persons in the slums in the business side of demolition, rehabilitation or erecting new units. 12. Continue efforts to sell the need for low-income housing to the people of metropolitan Atlanta. Mr. Alexander then discussed Unfinished Susiness,. Some of the phases of the initial program which are not finished are: Ll. Completion of projects now in planning. 2. Legislation pending that will allow the city to lease schcols to be built by developers simultaneously with housing projects, except in urban renewal areas. 3. Investigation of preblems relating to code restrictions of innovative building. 4. Activation of Board for the Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation, 5. Obtaining of additional sites in areas where low-income housing is needed, Mr. Alexander made a closing statement thanking the staff, members of the committee, Federal Agencies, Atlanta Housing Authority, Planning Department, Building Department, Public Works Department, members of the Board of Aldermen, Mayor Allen ancg the members of the Press, Radic and TV Organizations for their cccoperaticn and assistance. Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. Charles F. Palmer, member of the Public Housing Panel of the Committee, to discuss a Resclution the Panel had prepared. Mr. Palmer stated that the only logical conclusion reached is that €1) subsidized housing must be fairly distriduted throughout the city and, (2) that the only politically feasible way to do this is by a "package deal" simultaneously presented to Council by the Mayor and Atlanta Housing Authority with Page 6 overwhelming community support. He stated that the opion of the sub-committee is that it is not too late to resubmit those rejected zoning applications through the "package plan" on a simultaneous basis to meet the city's needs for subsidized housing and that the Mayor, the Board of Aldermen and the Atlanta Housing Authority should proceed to do so forthwith. Mr. Palmer then stated that if the same energy, zeal and leadership of our "power-structure" and city officials that was mobilized to build our dazzling stadium, luxury apartments and magnificent hotels and office buildings in our urban redevelop- ment areas had been applied to providing subsidized housing for those who were bulldozed out of slums to make room for these majestic structures, the goal cf public housing which our Mayor proclaimed sc long ago would now be nearly reached. Then, aS spokesman for the Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Public Housing and on the sub-comnittee's behalf, moved 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, The Resolution was duel seconded and the Chairman called for discussion, Mr. Alexander then suggested that since this was included in the requests made on Augusut 2, 1968, te the Zoning Committee and the Planning and Development Committee of the Board of Aldermen and had been referred to the Planning Department, the Committee should first address the Planning Department as to current status of the proposal. Mr. Palmer declined the suggestion and asked for a formal vote on the motion to adopt the Resolution. It was adopted unanimously. Mr. Alexander then showed the Committee slides that were taken of the slums as they exist today in certain areas of the City, particularly Lightening, and as a contrast the new low-income replacement housing developments such as: Wheat Street Gardens, College Plaza, Allen Temple, McDaniel Street apartments for the Elderly, Hollywood Read Project, Bankhead Highway, Friedship Gardens, Thomasville J.R. Project and the London Towne Houses. Mr. William Howland then commented on the five houses in Linwood Park which have been rehabilitrted by CACUR under the 221 (h) program. The Chairman then called on Mr, Dan Sweat, Director of Governmental Liaison, for comments, Page 7 Mr, Sweat stated that the statistics released by Col. Jones and the Committee were impressive and that the influence of the Committee's success was not confined to Atlanta's housing program alone but has alse been felt at the national level and that housing experts from over the country have commented on the Atlanta approach and on the excellent program of the Housing Resources Committee, He stated that his fccling is that the story behind the statistics is where the real meaning of this Committee and the Housing Program is to be found. He said that the work cof the Committee has made all the city aware of the desperate need for decent housing for the less fortunate, less affluent citizens of Atlanta; that it has helped bridge the gap of creditability between the City - the institution - the power structure and a very large and important segment of our community, and most important, this program started the City out on a new direction so long needed. He stated thet the Aldermen understood this need when they refused to pass Urban Renewal Survey and Plannim applications until the housing relocation needs were met. The Mayor realized the need when he called the Housing Conference and established this committee and it was obvious that the private business leadership recognized it when, the members of the Housing Resources Committee, responded as has been done, Mr, Sweat then pointed out that the resultant changes are reflected in a report given by Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment of the Housing Authority, at the last CACUR meeting. Mr. Openshaw pointed out that of the 10,033 units begun in urban renewal projects in 1968, 884 units have been completed whish is Z1 times the number of housing completed the previous year in urban renewal areas. During the same period, only 484 units were demolished in urban renewal areas. So, for the first ‘time in the history of Atlanta's urban renewal program, more housing units were completed in urban renewal areas than were demolished, Mr. Sweat concluded by saying, "We have finally turned the corner in our urban redevelopment program and are headed in a new direction so long sought." Mr. Archer D. Smith, Ifi, Chairman of the Legal Panel, made a warning statement that we-are deluding ourselves if we take the figures presented and quit working; that we have got to be realistic and get behind the package zoning plan. Upon inquiry from the Chairman, Mr. Jones confirmed that sites for all of the 7,337 units shown as In Planning, have not yet been rezoned. Page 8 In reference to the figures pertaining to Public Housing, contained in the Summary of Status Report (Encl. 2, Second Annual Report), attention is called to the fact that although the 5,476 units shown as Completed, Under Construction and In Planning categories, fall short by 4,100 units of the 5 year goal, it is however within 110 units of the 2 year goal of 5,586 Public Housing units announced in the Mayor's Housing Conference, November 15, 1966, The meeting adjourned 11:30 aa, Respectfully submitted, ? ivabenbrnrgty POA Malcolm D. n Housing Coordinator MC Encls: Resolution by Public Housing Sub-Committee Article, Atlanta Constitution, December 13, 1968 Editorial, Atlanta Journal, December 14, 1968 Editorial, Atlanta Constitution, December 16, 1968 An Official Opinion of WSB-Radio/Atlanta, Dec, 22, 1968 Editorial, WSB-TV, January 2, 1969, Editorial, WSS3-TV, January 3, 1969

Interest is still increasing in development of home-owner- ship housing. In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family develop- ments, it is apparent that the Low-income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial portion of the requirement on small scattered sites by both Conventional and Federal assisted financing. Also Public liousing in small projects, to include small developments on scattered sites is strongly advocated, for future developrient, No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50 per month, although the London Towne Houses, a 221 d(3) co-op development now under construction, is approaching this, with its one bedroom unit selling at $69 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30-%50 per month rental- purchase vange, which appears to have little chance of accomplishment, with substantial ‘governmental subsidy. Prefab distributors and cenventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Codes, difficulties are currently erecting very few single-family houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for which there iss i strong demand and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the City Limits, Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will not cost the developer more than $1,500. per unit.

"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 rotten 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 push. At the’end 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 for 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 purchased at $30 to $50 per month. Of all the units built or started since 1966, private enterprise has not been able to build anything to rent or sell for less than $60 a month. That is not to say that private builders have not tried. They have done a fine job. But the high cost of land and labor and zoning problems have effectively prevented the building of truly low cost housing. That means that our government, which is another way of saying you and I, is apparently the only Samaritan who can change the life of a boy like this. tit } COX BROADCASTING CORPORATION stations; WSB AM-FM-TV, Atlonta @ WHIO AM-FM-TV, Dayton @ WSOC AM-FM-TV, Charlotte WIOD AM-FM, Miami ° KTVU, Son Francisco-Oakland e WIIC-TV, Pittsburgh

Invitational notice, list of, those invited, with attendance of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy only of these minutes, The primary purpose of the meeting was to consider a proposal made by William L. Moore for rezoning of a tract of land in Land Lot 30, 14th District (FF) (annexed to the City of Atlanta, December 1, 1968) for 700 units of cooperative Townhouses and 200 units of rental apartments, ail to be financed under FHA Section 221 d(3). Chairman Alexander called the meeting to order and announced that before he took up the main item on the Agenda (consideration of a particular zoning proposal), he wished to discuss briefly some other matters, He then read a proposed letter to be sent to Representative Julian Bond (copy attached to the file copy of these minutes) supporting in principle Bond's Bill on the suspension of rent (through payment into an escrow account) on dwellings certified by the Building Department as unfit for human habitation, Seven (7) exceptions (changes) however were suggested as result of a poll of the entire membership of the HRC, the wesults of which were 26-for, 3-for with reservations and 2-against, The Chairman then referred to a requirement for the HRC to submit by March 15 its plan for the 1969 Summer Program in certain central core areas of the City. In this connection, the Chairman emphasized the need for: 1. An overall rezoning of the City to provide for the City's future development needs, to include adequate areas for low and medium income housing; and 2. Establishment of some emergency housing to provide living accomodations for special cases which repeatedly occur. The Chairman recognized Roger F. Rupnow, Assistant Professor of City Planning at Georgia Yech, who explained briefly a project which a group of his students proposed to undertake during the Spring quarter commencing about April 1 on a study preparing a plan for future development for the Southwest area of Atlanta. The plan is to be submitted to the City as a recommendation for consideration by the City in developing a plan for this area. The students’ group proposes to work closely with the residents of this area and with the City of Atlanta as to their wishes on existing zoning and future development needs, to include low and moderate income housing in the area, Mr. Gladin, City Planning Director, informed the Committee that a group of civic organizations in the area, known as Federation of Southwest Clubs has requested preparation of a Plan for the future development of the Southwest area and had essentially asked the Zoning Committee for a moritorium On zoning changes in the area until such a plan could be developed. Mr. Gladin further stated that this is impractical and cannot be done; that the Land Use Plan for the City, adopted by the Board of Aldermen about a year ago, is intended to form a basis for more detailed studies which are contemplated, but not yet developed. The Chairman said that he felt the HRC should cooperate with the citizens of the area for development of such a plan, That development of such plan should definitely provide for a reasonable amount of low and medium income housing in the general area and that a time limit should be established for development of such a plan. A motion was then made by Mr. Archer Smith, and seconded by Mr. Bob Winn that the HRC go on record as being in full support of the following Resolution: "BE IT RESOLVED, that the need for low-income housing be given foremost consideration by the Federation of Southwest Clubs in its deliberations and studies as to the best use of zoning of the southwest Atlanta land and further that a time- table be established for the completion of the Plan. Further that the HRC offers its full assistance to the Federation of Southwest Clubs in preparation of its plan.” After brief discussion, the Resolution was adopted without any dissenting votes, The Chairman then introduced Mr. W. L. Moore, Developer, and Mr. Nicholas Berryman, Promoter, to present their proposal. These enatlenen together presented a proposal for rezoning a large tract of land on both sides of Kimberly Road, S.W. - LL 30, 14th District (FF) - which was annexed to the City last. Dccombcr,. “The proposed development (copy of plat attached to file copy) consisted of 700 units of sales housing for which 90% of the units in any phase of the development must be pre=sold from pre=built samples before FHA commitment is approved for that phase; also 200 units of rental apartments; all 900 units under FHA 221 d(3); furthermore, development of 40-50 single-family houses on an adjacent tract to the north, which would not require rezoning. A school site of 9* acres on the south side of the project has already been negotiated with the School Board for construction of an elementary school to serve the project and adjoining area, It was also pointed out that the School Board has plans for a high school just north of the project. It was also explained that the plan provides for only two entrances and exits off Kimberly Road to the Townhouse portion of the development, with no through traffic, but all on interior streets and that the complete development would be accomplished over a five-year period, It was pointed out that the proposed development has been favorably recommended by the Atlanta-Fulton County Joint Planning Board. Mr. Gladin stated that the proposed location apparently has or will have adequate community facilities, The Chairman pointed out that currently the HRC is seeking new direction as to its future role and mission and that if the HRC should formally endorse this project now, which is in the same general area of a somewhat similar proposal which was alge strongly opposed by citizens of the area and denied by the Board of Aldermen about 3 weeks ago, that this might be premature and which prebably would be considered as in opposition to or in conflict with recent proposals for preparation of a plan for development of the entire Southwest area and therefore might do more harm than good in cbtaining approval of proposed rezoning. The Chairman also pointed out that due to a previous comnit- ment which he, as Vice-Chairman of A.R.M.P.C., hed made to the Federation of Southwest Clubs to support their request for preparation of an overall plan for the area, he felt that he should divorce himself from the issue and turned the meeting over to Mr. Archer Smith, a member of the Executive Committee, Mr. Smith ruled that since only 4 cut of 9 members of the Executive Committee were actually present, (a fifth had attended the meeting earlier, but had left), that a quorum did not exist and that therefore action could net be taken cither for or against the proposal. In response to queries from several members of the Committee as to certain necded changes in organization and new direction for future action and emphasis by the Committee, the Chairman advised that such is being considered but as yet he was not in position to do anything definite in this respect; that the Committee now has in the pipeline sufficient units to meet the ERC 2-year goal of 9,800 units and the 5-year goal of 16,3800 units, except for Public Housing; that it appears, for the time being, this is perhaps the only field in which the Committee should work aggres- sively. Motion was made, seconded and after some discussion was adopted that the HRC invite the Maycr to meet with the Committee in a Special Meeting in the near future to discuss the current basic purpose and future direction of the Committee. Mr. Watkins announced to the Committee that under FHA 221 d(3) or 236 that 20% of the units in any development may come under Rent Supplement, thus providing for some variation in economic status of the occupants, Mr. Archer Smith made a motion which was seconded and carried that T.U.F.F. and representatives of the Housing Authority be invited to appear before the HRC to discuss their views, policies and concerns. In view of the fact that the HRC Executive Committee did not have a quorum available for official transaction of business, no action was taken on the Resolution, The Meeting was adjourned at 12:10 p.m, Respectfully submitted, Fi'vucn is ot fe rent ane Malcolm D.

  • Text: MEMO From: Eric Hill Associctes To: Collier Gladin . a EXPANDED MEANS TO LOWER COST HOUSING . ha It is increasingly apparent that the 1948, 1987, end particulerly the 1983 Housing Act ecles r * more flexibility in how housing for low to modarate income families can be provided with easier assimilation into the community. As the f orthcoming Model Cities study "Lowering the Cost of Low-Cost Housing" will show, however, taking proper cdvaniage of this flexibility will also require more technical monitoring of needs and more inieragency coordination. The poor will continue to migrate into Atlanta. They cannot be stopsed. The community should reatize that a responsible position recognizes a need beyond mere corrective action. New programs demand of special study. innovation from older methods o doiag things cnd this should be the subject o Our recent study reveals that agencies and people of the city have tended to think about the housing probiem in outdated terms. This is fully understandable because of rapid charges taking place in the programs of housing assistance and the rules governing that assistance. Thinking of Lt cee cs "projec , direct administrative control are unnecessary. Other restraints to ective invelvement o e enterprise ond to choices of their involvement and to sterotyzed administration erocedures are being removed. This tendency has not been understood and has added to the confusion on sucn important matters as the controversial "Package Housing Plan.” £ roy t resgonse.

These advantages do not aceme naturally but must be geared to procedural and policy changes detailed in a special report. A short Jist of cotentic! advantages over older ways cre: Fuel, gre * . ‘ : a I. The means to construct substantially more publically subsidized housing on many sccttered ~ gmall sites (ona lot, two lots, tes elther vacant or cleared for use) with few restrictions on butlding type and density. Such housing may be traditional, single-family, town-_ houses, garden apartments, or any type best suited for assimilction into the neighborhood. Public housing itself (although less subsidized programs are available) can assume new form.. Management and maintenance problems can be “farmed out" through such programs as the Leased Housing Program, Rent Supplement, and Turnkey II and III. 2, Various programs of housing assistance can be mixed within the same multi-family structure, whether 221d(3), a private cooperative, 235, leased housing, traditional financing, or a combination of programs. Management administrative approaches must be worked out but they have been demonstrated successfully. 3. New assistance programs encourage worthy goals such as transition from renter to owner even among the lowest income groups in lowest cost tenant responsibility, pride, choice, job training, and improved design with variety. 4. New technology is encouraged with less constraints of local builders, mortage bankers, management, and unnecesscrily restrictive standards. Real incentives for business sector involvement are being developed. a. ‘More equitable reimoursement policies for disolacees have been made possible. We have a choice.

Primary among other basic issues yet to be resolved is the need to reexamine the procedures, resources, Informal organiza- tions and:formal organizations involved in: - ; . s a; Matching needs of disslaced families with their financial, space and locational require- ments. Relocation housing meeting these requirements should be available at the time of displacement. Inherently, these matters need to be handled on a case by casa basis. . B b, Monitoring needs for housing assistance program use beyond tne immediate requirements for relocation housing serving families displaced by governmental action. The success of this technical job could be an important poost in economic activity as well as in im- proving the quality of the overall housing stock, Cs Providing assistance to developers and to potential clients in the use of new and expanded housing programs. Requirements for new Federal housing assistance programs cre more complex and the implications of new technology in planning their use are also more complex. A formalized greater degree of coordination behyeen the Planning Department, the Housing Authority, the Regional Office of =, HHA, developers, ard clients will be required if meximum program use is to be realized.

JONES MEMORANDUM Housing Coordinator TO: Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. ; Director of Governmental Liaison Action on rezoning petitions recently, such as Sewell Road, Kimberly Road, Brownlee Road and Brownstown Road (still pending) for low-income housing projects has been most discouraging, but is understandable, This has convinced me that we are not going to get needed Sites approved in the forseeable future unless we resort to different procedures, Also, I am convinced that it is not good for the City to repeatedly create such extensive hostility in substantial residential neighborhoods by continuing to attempt rezoning of areas for apartments when the cards are clearly stacked to loose. There must be more practical methods that could be employed, I suggest: 1. Utilization of existing slum areas, through NDP, for new developments of low-income housing, particularly Public Housing. This would create little or no opposition from residential neighborhoods, or otherwise, except perhaps the Planners, who consistently oppose legalizing housing in many such areas thru changes in actual or planned zoning. I refer specifically to portions of Lightning, Huff Road, a substantial area off old Marietta Road in the vicinity of Spring Avenue, Plunkettown and others. We must be practical and adjust some previous theortical concepts to meet the exigencies of the actual situations in which we currently find ourselves, Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr. February 7, 1969 Page 2 2.6 4. Se Utilization of certain City-owned properties, not now being profitably utilized, such as portions of Lakewood Park property, Federal Prison Farm and certain other smaller, but suitable tracts within the City, There are several not now being profitably utilized. Adoption of an all out campaign to encourage and pursuade County Commissioners in adjoining unincorporated areas to agree to construction and support of Public Housing and or other low-income housing projects within their respective jurisdictions, close to Atlanta. Obtain authentic statistical data as to (a) How long occupants of Public Housing have resided within the City Limits of Atlanta; (b) Where they came from to Atlanta; (c) Why did they come to Atlanta; (d) How long have they been in Public Housing? Selection by the Planning Department of ample areas for Public Housing and provide for appropriate zoning thereof, in connection with a City-wide re-analysis of Zoning. Since we have 9 classifications of Residential zoning, which definitely stratify construction economically; and 5 classifications of Commercial, I can see no logical reason why we should not further stratify Apartment Zoning and perhaps have a special category for Public Housing. As I see it, the above steps areasential to successful pursuit of the low-income housing program in Atlanta. I would welcome your opinion on the above and or other ideas for practical solution of the dilemma, MDJ/me Sincerely, Fa ples Malcolm D. Jones Housing Coordinator cc: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. Mr, Cecil A. Alexander

  • Text: WSB TELEVISION . (4 WAAL WHITE COLUMNS ON PEACHTREE CHANNEL 2, ATLANTA, GA. 30309 Vv LEW AN EDITORIAL OPINION ........ January 3, 1969 VIEWPOINT - An official expression 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 pro- gram 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? - a Here is what WSB Television considers some key recommen- dations: The Federal Housing Act of 1968 allows the FHA to make some loans for home ownerships at one per cent interest: But there's not enough money for this project - or for many of the other housing programs. Congress must see the crisis - and vote the money. Building codes must be updated to allow for new, more economical assembly-line building techniques and materials. Building trade unions must stop discriminating and starthelping to train more workmen. _ Private enterprise must be able to build truly low cost housing at a profit. Senator Robert xennedys suggestions for tax benefits offer the best hope for that. (more) COM BROADCASTING CORPORATION stations: WSB AM-FM-TV, Atlanta @ WHIO AM-FM-TV, Doyton © WSOC AM-FM-TV, Charlotte WIOD AM-FM, Miami ° KTVU, Son Francisco-Oakland 6 WIIC-TV, Pittsburgh 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 free- ways there would be a minimum of 2,700 acres of expressway right- of-way within the city of Atlanta. Already there's plenty of parking available every rush hour. tit
