from the continuing " grass roots" meetings and the leadership

same time other groups representing the substantial home owners
in the area will be involved . Mrs . Brayboy suggested Rev.
Marcus Williams of the Antioch Church and Rev . Brodnax of the
Pilgram Church as sources.
It should be emphasized that the application for an urban
renewal project does not require a plan and that the planning
will be done over the next six months with advice from the
people of the area .
IV. Mr . Gladin also suggested that it will be@ecessary to assure
the Aldermen that relocation of families to be displaced should be
considered. It was suggested that a means of temporary housing and relocation in the neighborhood should be worked out . Cecil Alexander
will discuss this with the Housing Authority.
V. It was emphasized that while awaiting physical change every effort
should be made to accelerate social-services in the slum areas. It wil l
take approximately a year to process the application for urban renewal.
VI. The new school was discussed with emphasis on its total approach
to problems of the area.
The total thrust of the discussion was to move toward submission of the
"Nash-Bans" area for urban renewal and to involve t he pe ople of the area
in the process.
