Dear Charlie:

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 EOA
and the Atlanta Housing Authority the last four months in 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 EOA will be able to
provide the same service to residents of the Boulevard area,

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

Mr. Emmerich

Sincerely yours,
