The following major changes ere recommended;

A. Policy and Procedure Guide
1, Goals
Addition of a new gosl of review and re-evaluation in anticipation

of oa need for basic changes in the program in 1968 and afterwards.
Observation from HUD and Atlenta's experience have indicated that

it will be necessary to repeat our rehabilitation effort in areas
previously covered several years ago. This feature is also
vecosmended for inclusion as a factor to be considered in determining
priorities. (Addition of F to Section L)

Orgenization and Administration

Changes in organizetion and administration are recommended to

reflect personnel additions in 1967. The Mayor's public statement

in favor of these increases provides the basis upon which the changes
were considered. (General changes as they apply throughout Section III).

Area Housing Code Compliance Policies

The abandonment of the specific objective of once « month sector
ter Inspector is recommended. Present heavy case
load requires this change. However, the objective is partially reached
the inspector in the course of handling his usual case load,
