Executive Director
Atlanta Housing Authority
824 Hurt Building
Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Satt:

Attached is a copy of a memorandum to Mr. William Wofford,
Building Official. Mr. Wofford informs me that initiation of
Housing Code enforcement will begin today.

We realize that such comprehensive enforcement of the Code

will produce some problems for many of the residents who might
be forced to relocate should it be necessary to order the demolition
of structures which are so deteriorated that they cannot be brought
up to Code standards.

The emergency housing assistance program conducted by the
Housing Authority and EOA the last four months of 1966 provided
much needed help to more than 140 families who were forced to
relocate because of eviction by landlords or as a result of Code
enforcement. I hope that the Housing Authority will be able to
provide the same services to residents of the Boulevard area.

Mr. Johnny Robinson, Community Development Coordinator

of my office, has been in contact with your Befiford-Pine Urban
Renewal Project staff and also with the East Central EOA office.
He will be available to assist your people in seeing that the
needs of the families in this area are met,

Mr. Satterfield

We will appreciate anything you might be able to do along these

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
