The primary purpose of this report is to bring
to the citizens of Atlanta a better concept of
Urban Renewal, why we have it, how it works,
who is responsible for it, what has been accomplished to date, principal needs for the future and
suggestions for accomplishing them.
The Urban Renewal Department performs four
major functions, the first and foremost of which is
prescribed in ordinance establishing the Department, adopted July 1, 1957 which states, "The
functions of this department shall be to study the
Urban Renewal requirements of the City of
Atlanta, to determine ways and means for their
accomplishment and to provide and facilitate
timely coordination and orderly development of
Urban Renewal plans, projects and other related
activities throughout the city . . . and to make
recommendations for facilitating progress on
Urban Renewal in the City of Atlanta... "
In carrying out this function the Urban Renewal
Department serves as the staff of the Urban
Renewal Committee of the Board of Aldermen
and performs the principal coordinating activities
on Urban Renewal matters with other Departments and Agencies. This work is performed by
the Director, Assistant Director, Rehabilitation
Specialist and Secretary.
The second function assigned this Department,
as of July 1, 195~, is enforcement of the Housing
and Slum Clearance Code of the City of Atlanta.
For this purpose the Department is now authorized a Chief Inspector, 8 Field Inspectors and 2
Clerks.
The third function is the city-wide responsibility
for providing relocation housing assistance for
families displaced by Governmental action, including expressway acquisition, and for issuance of
certificates of eligibility to displaced families for
purchase of FHA insured mortgage homes under
the 221 Program. A relocation Housing Officer
and Secretary perform this function.
1
�The fourth and most recently assigned function,
since August 1, 1960, is responsibility for enforcement of the City Ord;nance requiring that demolitions be accomplished within a prescribed time
limit after issuance of demolition permit and that
resulting debris, litter and rubble be removed from
the premises. This function is performed by tl1e
Environmental Improvement Division, in addition
to Housing Code enforcement.
The Urban Renewal Department, with advice
and assistance of other Departments, especially
the Planning Department, initiates and makes
recommendations to the Urban Renewal Committee of the Board of Aldermen for new Urban
Renewal Projects, reviews Urban Renewal Plans
for the Urban Renewal Committee and when
appropriate initiates changes in boundaries of
existing Projects.
Survey, planning and execution of the City's
current Urban Renewal Projects, after selection,
designation and adoption of the Projects by the
City, has been delegated by Ordinance to the
Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta, as the
City's Agent.
However, the establishment of broad policies
for operation of the entire Urban Renewal program and responsibility for insuring that they are
carried out is a duty and function of the City (the
Mayor and Board of Aldermen) executed through
its Urban Renewal Committee. This responsibility
should not and cannot be delegated.
II.
SUMMARY-EXISTING URBAN
RENEWAL PROJECTS:
Atlanta's five Urban Renewal Projects now
comprise 1303 acres, originally contained 2,971
substandard residential structures to be demolished, 1500 dwellings to be rehabilitated, will
require 4,545 families to move and after redevelopment will house 7,598 families in safe, decent
and sanitary standard housing ( a gain of 969
families) above the number that were in the areas
originally. The net project cost of the first five
projects will be roughly $27,000,000, of which
the local share is $9,000,000, with $18,000,000
being borne by the Federal Government.
Taxes ( city and county) derived from the areas
before the projects started was $160,000 annually;
after redevelopment is complete the value of
newly constructed taxable property in the areas
is conservatively estimated to be $125,000,000,
producing in real estate taxes alone $1,600,000
annually, an increase of ten fold.
The first three ( center of town) projects were
adopted in February, 1956, and the two outlying
projects, for relocation purposes, were adopted in
August, 1957. Final plans for Butler, RawsonWashington and Thomasville Projects were
approved July, 1959, and for University and
Rockdale June, 1960. Execution is considered to
have started in Butler, Rawson-Washington and
Thomasville Projects January 1, 1960, and in
University and Rockdale January 1, 1961. The
redevelopment phase is five years for all projects.
By year end 1961, some 2400 substandard
properties had been acquired by the Housing
Authority at an expenditure of $17,000,000.
70% of all parcels to be acquired, have been purchased or are under condemnation; all property
in the Thomasville Project had been acquired or
was in the process of condemnation; over 1,000
substandard structures had been demolished and
their occupants rehoused in standard dwellings;
431 dwelling units in the Urban Renewal Projects
had been brought up to standards required by the
Housing Code and 673 additional units were in the
process of being rehabilitated. Six parcels, consisting of 69.43 acres, or 7.5 % of the Urban
Renewal tracts, have already been sold for
redevelopment valued at $12,068,350. This
includes a $3,250,000, 21 story, luxury apartment building; a 1,000 pupil elementary school,
an 8 story Holiday Motel; 596 medium priced
rental apartment units; and 100 units of single
family 221 sales housing.
III.
PRINCIPAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF
THE URBAN RENEWAL
DEPARTMENT:
Housing Code Enforcement:
Of the local share, all but $1 ,500,000 in cash,
the total 1957 Urban Renewal Bond funds, is
being provided by non-cash grants in aid by other
departments for capital improvements which will
serve the areas. $4,500,000 of this amount is
being provided by the Board of Education in the
form of school construction.
In order to make the Housing Code felt
throughout the entire city, the E nvironmental
Improvement Division has devoted its efforts during 1961 primarily to the worst property in the
block or neighborhood basis. However, in addition to city-wide coverage, conservation areas in
salvagable, residential neighborhoods have now
been selected for concentrated effort in 1962 on a
house-by-house basis. This should result in substantial increased production during 1962.

Where no dates are indicated, figures pertain to
1961 operations only,
Figures in ( ) also included under other items.
/6 . Requires average of 6 inspections each
/4. Requires average of 4 inspections each .
/3. Requires average of 3 inspections eac h.
/2. Requires nv ernge of 2 inspection s each.
At year e nd, I nspecto rs were carrying an average
work load of approximately 225 uncompleted cases
each.
The above was accomplished with only 4 Inspectors in 1959 and 1960; in 1961 with 6-1/3
Inspectors; 8 Inspectors are now authorized.
The Better Housing Commission has considered 462 slow moving and difficult cases in an
effort to resolve them without court action; and
has authorized the placarding of 917 dwelling
units.
Relocation Housing:
During 1961, 620 certificates of eligibility (23
to Whites and 597 to Negroes) were issued by the
Relocation Housing Division to displaced families
for the purchase of FHA insured mortgage homes
built by private enterprise. A total of 3,210 certificates (306 to Whites and 2904 to Negroes)

have been issued under this program to date.
Since this program started in 1958, building permits have been issued for construction within the
City of Atlanta for 2,889 single family, 221
houses (1072 for Whites and 181 7 for Negroes) .
All but 100 of these have been completed and
all but 137 of the completed houses have been
sold and occupied. This program alone represents $29,000,000 in new construction in Atlanta.
Fight Blight:
During April, 1961, the Urban Renewal Department, with the assistance of other Departments
and agencies, promoted and spear-headed a very
successful city-wide FIGHT BLIGHT campaign.
This was closely tied in with and supported by
the Women's Chamber of Commerce in connection with its annual Clean Up, Paint Up, Fix Up
Campaign.
Exhibits:
During the week of August 21-26, 1961, this
Department participated with other City Departments in providing displays at Lenox Square for
the "Salute to Atlanta." The Department also had
a very substantial and informative Urban Renewal
display at the Southeastern Fair.
Recertification of Workable Program:
The Department prepared, with assistance of
material furnished by other Departments and
Agencies, Atlanta's annual report for Recertification of Progress in Community Improvement
(Workable Program). The principal comments
by the Federal Government in its Recertification of
the Workable Program (to January 1, 1963)
were:
(1) That progress in Housing Code enforcement
is good, but the City badly needs additional
Inspectors and suggestion was made that
building permit fees might be increased to
finance the cost of the Housing Code enforcement service; and
(2) That activities of the Citizens Advisory Com-
mittee for Urban Renewal be more comprehensive and positive in the role of actually
accomplishing community improvements.
5
�Apartment Improvement:
Inspection and upgrading major medium rental
apartment developments has been undertaken by
the Rehabilitation Specialist of the Department.
sponsored by the School Department primarily for
expansion of Howard High School. The Board of
Education has committed itself to defray all but
$17,500 of the cost of the local share of this
project.
Revision of Housing Code:
East Atlanta:
A comprehensive revision of the Housing Code
is currently being undertaken, designed to clarify
and strengthen certain provisions of the Code,
based on our 2½ years actual experience in Code
Enforcement.
An application is being prepared by the Housing Authority for a 110 acre Urban Renewal Project in East Atlanta in the Mayson A venueHardee Street area. About half of this project is
contemplated for rehabilitation. There is also
sufficient vacant land in this project to provide
location within the project for construction of
additional public housing units required, before
a,ny demolition takes place within the project area.

OTHER MAJOR URBAN RENEWAL


mlili'ORTS AND RELATED PROJECTS:


EH
Buttermilk Bottoms:
Bond Issue:
The 160 acre Buttermilk Bottoms tract has,
since November, 1960, been designated and
adopted by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen as
a future Urban Renewal Project. This area has
long been considered by many as Atlanta's future
Number 1 Urban Renewal Project.
West End:
A General Neighborhood Renewal Plan study
is underway in a 650 acre area of the "West End":
to be completed in June, 1962. It is anticipated
that a $1,500,000 Urban Renewal Project will
develop in at least 10% of the area being studied.
Transportation Plaza:
A Feasibility Study for future Urban Renewal
Projects is being made by the Planning Department in the 500 acre tract known as "Transportation Plaza," which includes the area between
Whitehall-Spring Streets and Northside Drive,
from McDaniel Street to North Avenue.
Georgia State College:
An Urban Renewal Project for expansion of
Georgia State College along Decatur Street, between Central Avenue and Piedmont Avenue, is
already definitely underway, with the entire local
share of the cost of the project being borne by
Georgia State College and the State Board of
Regents.
Since 1958 the Urban Renewal Department has
been working consistently for adoption of a Long
Range Program for future Urban Renewal Projects, has developed such a proposal for consideration by the Urban Renewal Committee and
is prepared to present and support the proposal
before the Bond Commission. This proposal is
for six year program, 1962-7, and, in addition
to the projects listed above, includes five other
badly needed projects. Two of these are proposed as "companion" projects to complement
others. The local share of this proposed six year
program amounts to $8,000,000. This includes a
$1 000 000 revolving fund for non-Federal-assisted projects. This amount is not excessive,
when compared with the needs of the City, and is
in keeping with the financial effort being made in
Urban Renewal by other cities of comparable size.
Relocation Housing:
Other developments in progress, not a direct ,
part of but closely related to ~rban R~newal, _are
the 650 unit Field Road Public Housmg Project
for Negroes and 250 units of high-rise Public
Reusing for Elderly (Whites) now underway on
Ashby Street, just. South . of the Joel Ch~ndler
Harris Public Housmg Project. Also commitment
has been made in the Eastern sector of the Butler
Street Urban Renewal Project for 200 units of
high - rise Public Housing for the Elderly
(Negroes) .
V.
Howard School:
CITIZENS PARTICIPATION:
Application has been prepared for submittal to
the Federal Government for a small Urban Project
The highlight of citizen participation during
1961 was the enthusiastic and effective part played
by neighborhood groups, business associations,
6
7
�trade organizations, clubs and individual citizens
in Atlanta's first FIGHT BLIGHT Campaign.
The Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal was particularly helpful in a clerical financial and. advisory capacity. Throughout the year
the A~tmg Dir~ctor of t~e _Citizens Advisory
CoIIlID.lttee published and distributed to its memb~r~hip a vef)'. informative weekly newsletter. The
Citizens Advisory Committee also provided for
publication of the 1960 Report of the Urban
R~newal Department, and has offered to publish
this report. It has also been very active through
!l1e cour~esy . of the :rrust Company of Georgia
m arrangmg informative talks and tours on Urban
Renewal for various citizen groups.
. The Chamber of Commerce has listed progress
Urban_ Renewal as one of its seven major objectives durmg 1962. The first edition of "Atlanta"
(January, 1962, edition), a publication sponsored
by the "Forward Atlanta" movement of the Chamber of Commerce, contained as its primary feature
an excellent article on Urban Renewal.
~
Th~ Central Atlanta Association and the newly
orgarnzed Uptown Association have both strongly
endorsed and adopted policy supporting Urban
Renewal.
The League of Women Voters published during
1961 a special edition of its "FACTS" pamphlet
devoted exclusively to Urban Renewal. Both
this organization and the Voters Guild prominently featured Urban Renewal in their educational campaigns for voters during the 1961 Primary and General Election. All local candidates
for re-election during the 1961 Mayor and Board
of Aldermen campaign endorsed and promised
support for Urban Renewal.
The local press, radio and television have consistently supported and assisted the Urban
Renewal Program.
VI.
SPECIAL NEEDS FOR THE FUTURE:
(a) According to the 19 60 census there are
40,000 dwelling units within the City 'of Atlanta
that are dilapidated or deteriorating. These represent areas of the City six times as extensive as
~ur ~urre?t ~rban Renewal Projects. It takes
little 1magmation to see the need for Housing Code
Enforcement and Urban Renewal clearance
projects in these areas.
advantage of capital improvements by other Departments for Urban Renewal credit purposes and
for controlling, or at least influencing, interim
developments in various critical areas of the City.
( c) Adequate provision for financing such a
program on a continuing basis is a must, if Urban
Renewal is to serve the purpose intended in
Atlanta, and which it is capable of doing, if given
adequate financial support. The City simply
carmot afford to fail to take advantage of the
opportunity now offered, through the Urban
Renewal Program, to rid itself of its extensive
festering slums.
( d) Future substantial Urban Renewal Projects
cannot be undertaken, however, without simultaneously providing for additional Public Housing
to accommodate those displaced families whose
income is too low to buy or rent standard dwelling
units in the open market.
( e) The adoption by the City of Minimum
Standards for existing commercial and industrial
properties, similar to those now in the Housing
Code for residential structures, is essential if we
are to eliminate slums and upgrade neighborhoods.
(f) Violations of the Housing Code are so
numerous and extensive, it is doubtful that material progress can be made in corrective measures
until the Courts adopt the policy of fining
offenders on first notice and summons for Housing Code violations, in much the same manner as
is now followed in Traffic Court for traffic violations.
(g) The Sanitary, Health and Fire Departments have been and can continue to contribute
tremendously to Environmental Improvement
throughout the City by assisting in enforcing clean
up of premises and removal of accumulations of
trash and litter from occupied properties and
vacant lots. This will, at the same time, improve
sanitary and health conditions and reduce fire
hazards.
(h) Improvement of apartment zoning regulations would greatly assist, from an Environmental
Improvement standpoint, prevention of future
slums, through new construction .
(b) A Long Range Program for future Urban
Renewal Projects, with some degree of acceptance
for future development, is essential to planning
areas for Housing Code Enforcement, taking full
(i) Greater restrictions and controls on operators of junk yards and salvage dumps throughout
the City is very much needed. A requirement for
screening existing establishments in this category
with a woven redwood fence, similar to that now
required for new establishments would be a
i
9
�tremendous benefit to the City in its Environmental Improvement effort.
(j) Thorough rehabilitation through Housing
Code enforcement is the backbone of the Citywide Urban Renewal effort. Increased emphasis
now on this phase, with additional Housing Code
Inspectors, is far cheaper and more practical for
the City than clearance and redevelopment later,
except in those areas which are already so badly
deteriorated that it is not economically feasible
to rehabilitate them.
wishes to acknowledge the valuable services and
consistent support given this Department and the
Urban Renewal Program by two former members
of the Urban Renewal Committee, Alderman Jesse
Draper and W. A . "Bill" Sims, who chose not to
stand for re-election in the 1961 political campaign.
(k) The need urgently exists for some appropriate incentives, probably tax concessions, to
encourage private enterprise to redevelop, at no
cost to the City, slum areas in accordance with
plans and appropriate controls established and
approved by the City.

turnover and to bring new interests into the Committee. Terms have been
proposed for 1, 2 or 3 year appointments, determined initially alphabetically.
In accordance with the foregoing premise, I wish to thank the old
members for their dedication to this important citizen function and for a job
well done; and to welcome the new members to the Committee. It is a pleasure

Dear Ivan:
Representatives of the IPA will present the Atlanta-Fulton
County Merger Study to the Joint Citizens Advisory Committee on
Tuesday, November 1S, 1969, at 10:00 a. m. in the Assembly Hall,
Sparks Hall, Georgia State University.
Since phase I of the Study is now complete and since phase 2,
which is informing the citizens of the Study and its recommendations,
s1Tu:@uld now begin, I plan to recommend the following at this meeting:
Since the task of advising the IPA officials with their study
has been basically completed, the Citizens Advisory Committee should
either be discharged and a new group named to implement phase 2 or
the present committee should be greatly increased in number.
(1)
(2) Since Georgia State h as become a University, and since the
University is in a period of unprecedented academic and physi-cal
growth, and since I serve as Vice President of the University,
Chairman of the Master Campus Planning Committee, and Chairman
of the Academic Growth Committee, I do not feel that I can give the
time necessary to the implementation of phase 2. The Chairman should
be able to give full time to the importatEi1i task of informing our d itizens
of the recommendations of this Study. Therefore, I feel that I must
resign as Chairman of the Joint Citizens Advisory Committee. I will
be happy to continue as a member of the committee.
It is always a pleasure to work with you
with you .
and to be associated

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Mr . George Berry
FROM:
Charles L. Davis
c9-
Reference is made to your memo of October 23, 1969, in which
you discuss the appropriation the City of Atlanta is making to
the Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal.
Along this line, I would like to advise that in either May or
June of this year I worked very closely with Mr. Noah Langdale
and Dean Alex Lacey who was then acting as Direct or of the
Committee regarding the current year's appropriation. It was
concluded at that time that there would be no funds requested
fr om the City in 1969 and that future appropriations would be
reduced fr om the $15,000 level to approximately $3 ,000 per year.
This reduction took into account the City furnishing an
Executive Director and the proper supporting clerical resources.
We have removed the 1969 appropriation and have earmarked the
1970 Budget Request to show a request of approximately $3,000
for the Citizens Advisory Committee f or Urban Renewal.

From:
George Berry
Subject:
CACUR
I know that you a.re aware that Colonel Malcolm Jones occupies one
of the AdminiMrative Coordinator positions in thi s office . Since he
and hi secretary will perform the function of the Citizens Advisory
Committee for Urban Renewal in the future , there will be no need
for the large annual contribution that has been made in the past. I
have talked with Colon 1 Jones in recent days , and he advises that
someone from his Board has discussed with you the possibility of
carrying forward the 1969 appropriation of $15 ,000 (which has never
been paid over) and, consequently, not making any new appropriation
for 1970. He tells me that you are ag:reeable to this procedure .

Mr. Malcolm D. Jones
Executive Di rect or
Citi zens Advisory Comrnitte ~
for Urban Renewal
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dear Mr. Jones:
Mr. Persells h as asked me to reply to your letter of August 18, 1969
relative to the Executive Committee's concern over several features
of Atlanta's Urban Renewal Program . First, let me say that we share
the Committee's concern over the length of time required to clo se out
earlier projects. However, to imply that the length of time t aken to
clos e out proj e cts is due to an apparent lack of a ggressivene ss on the
part of the Authority is ludicrous. The ori ginal five urban renewal
projects h ave b een amended forty-two times, requiring an additional
eight million dollars from the Federal g overnmen t, and resulting in a
stadium, expansion of Georgia State Colle g e, addi tiona l land for schools,
parks, and nei ghborhood faciliti es , acquisition of commerci a l p r operties
on Georgia Avenue, a nd n umerous other improvements. The average leng th
of time involved in se curing Federal a pproval of an amendment has b een
twelve months, with severa l requiring thirty months.
A second major factor delaying project close - outs is the fundin g and
construction of non - cash g rants - in- aid. The Butler Stre et Project,
for example, could not be closed out earlier because the propos e d
school was not funded until the p assage of the 1968 bond issue , with
constru ction sta rting in August, 1 9 69.
Even after renewal land has been sold, many developers have e x perienced
delays caused b y the tight money market, high interest rates and
soaring costs.
Nonetheless, pro j ects are not clos ed out without special effort. Recently I established a special t ask force to identify and expe dite all
remaining activities to b e completed in the original projects.
Two of
these projects - Butler Street and Georgia State - have been completed
this year and are waiting final HUD audit.
I want to assure the Committee that the Authority recognizes its responsibility to proceed as
rapidly as possible to complete the early projects.
�-2I share the Committee's concern over its seemingly perfunctory role of
late. If it is to perform its function as outlined in the Aldermanic
resolution creating the Committee, ie., advise the Mayor and Board of
Aldermen and other public bodies concerned with Urban Renewal in the
City, then it seems to me that it must continue to review proposed
Urban Renewal activities formulated by the various project area committees
with an overview of the total needs of the City. The Committee's views
on pending redevelopment actions should be expressed to the Aldermanic
Planning and Redevelopment Committee, as did Bob S1.unmerville, former
Committee Chairman. The Authority will cooperate in any way possible
in assisting the Committee in carrying out its function of providing
guidance and direction to the City in the administration of its Urban
Renewal program.
The comments pertaining to the West End Urban Renewal Project are obviously personal expressions of frustrations shared by the Authority.
The West End Urban :ienewal Proje@t is now in its third year of execution and to date the Authority has acquired 516 parcels of land (87%),
relocated 457 families and 77 businesses (97%), demolished 354 str-..ictures
(74%), sold or put under agreement for sale 54 acres of land (55%), and
completed rehabilitation of 504 structures (22%). In addition, the
Authority has acquired and conveyed to the City 8.7 acres of land for
park development, and the 1.1 million dollar Dean Rusk Elementary School
has been completed. The redeveloper for the 15 acre enclosed mall
shopping center is presently securing leases, with construction scheduled
in 1970.
In spite of the progress made to date, there are three specific areas
in West End where progress has been delayed. The first is the seven
acra tract adjacent to the Pa rk Street Methodist Church. This area
involves a land use change and is included in an amendment submitted
to HUD on June 17, 1969. On September 23, HUD approved an Authority
request to proceed with a public hearing and local adoption of the
plan amendment pursuant to offering the land for sale for residential
re-use. The public hearing has been scheduled for October 17 before
the Planning and Development Committee.
A second area involves some twenty-four acres of land in the vicinity
of Lee and Oglethorpe, presently design a ted for office warehouse and
general office use. The West End Advisory Commit tee h a d previously
agreed that this area needed further study in light of the proposed
location of rapid transit in the area.
The third area involves the motel and residential uses on Oak Street,
between Ashby and Peeples Streets. The three acre motel site was on
the market for 18 months and no proposals were received. Five redevelopers submitted proposals for 76 dwelling units on par cel 19, but
the West End Advisory Committee recommended rej e ction of all proposals,
re-study of the site in conjunction with the motel tract, and re-offer
for sale. The status of the West End plan will be discussed with the
West End Advisory ·committee on October 1.
The Authority recogniz e s the urgency of proceeding as rapidly as possible
in each of the eight conventional urban renewal areas and five neighborhood development program areas in the City. I want to assure the Committee that Mr. Parsells and I have committed ourselves to this task
while making the program responsive to human needs.

Dear Mr. Howland:

I am returning herewith the records of the C1tizens Advisory Committee for Urban
Beneval and a statement of operations for the year ending December 31, 1968. This
statement was prepared from the ledger of the Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban
Renewal and other pertinent data in the files of the Citizens Advisory Committee.
SCOPE OF AUDIT
. .All deposit records in the ledger were traced to the bank statements and verified.
All checks issued during the period of January 1, 1968 and December 31, 1968 were
accounted for. All cancelled checks were compared to invoices and/or valid endorsements, the ledger footings and ledger posting were tested for accuracy. The bank
statements for the period under audit were reconciled and balanced. All tc:..:;;: returns
on the employees' salaries for the year 1967 were filed and all applicable truces were
paid thereon. The petty cash fund was not verified.
OPINION
In my opllUon, the ledger, system, and supporting information of the Citizens Advisory
.Committee for Urban Renewal are adequate and well kept for the period under audit.
However, we fe el that certain system changes should be made at your convenience. I
am enclosing a statement of operations for the year 1967 me.rked Schedul~ 11 A11 and "B",
--which sets forth the financial transactions for the period under audit.

Dear Committee Member:

Tis the .fortnight before Christmas
And all through our program
Many things will be stirring.
The point of taking such liberties with the famous poem is to say that our final
1968 full committee meeting will be held exactly two weeks before Christmas
on Wednesday, December 11 at 2p.m.in the Atlanta Room of the Citizens and
Southern National Bank.
We'll have a veritable Christmas stocking of a program, as follows:
1. Cary S. Hooks, FHA director for Georgia, will discuss new
programs provided by the 1968 national housing legislation.
Accompanying Mr. Hooke will be Ralph L. Johnston, chief
underwrit er and Kenneth Finn, construction ana lys t in charge of
221 H program. They will be glad to answer que stions.
2. Percy Hea rle, chairman and president of our nonprofit
subsidiary, will update us on our Robert L. Sommerville 221 H
project which ie nearing completion.
3. Vice c hairman and treasurer A. B. P adgett will report on
our financial situa tion.
4. Howar d Ope n s haw, Atlanta Housing Au thority redevelopment
directo r , will summarize 1968's urban renewal activity and give
us a p review of wha t is in prospect for 1969.
5. Jack Willingham, assistant dir ector of H UD's community

�MINUTES OF THE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE
FOR URBAN RENEVf AL
Directors Room
Trust Company of Georgia Building
Friday, November 21, 1969
The regular Executive Committee meeting was called to order promptly at
2:15 P. M. by Chairman Noah Langdale.
Those in attendance for the Executive Committee were: Messrs. A. B~
Padgett; Jack Carrollton (representing Mr . Bob Bivens); Henri Jova; Arth r Burks,
Jr. (representing Mr. William VanLandingham); William L. Calloway; Edgar
Schukraft; Joe C. Whitley and Miss Jean Cornn (representing Mr. Carlton Rochell);
for the Housing Authority: Mr. Howard Openshaw; and for the Atlanta Planning
Department: Mr. John Matthews. Three students from Georgia State University,
Carolyn B. Clemons, Nannette Evans and Don Akin also attended the meeting.
Agenda and copies of pertinent material used at the meeting are attached to
the file copy of these minutes.
Dr. Langdale opened the meeting by stating that Mayor-Elect Sam Mas sell
and Vice-Mayor Elect Maynard Jackson had been invited to the meeting, but due
to previous eng a g ements could not attend. Dr. Langdale stated that he was asked
by Mr. Masseii and Ivir. Jackson Lo expr e ss their app:.::- eciation fo-::: b e ing inv it e d to
the meeting and asked that they be invited to another meeting in the near future.
Dr. Langdale also thanked Mr. A . B. Padgett, Vice-Chairman of CACUR,
for his assistance in conducting the September and October meetings during his
illness, and commended Mr. Padgett for a job well done.
Dr. :...angdale then turned the meeting over to Malcolm Jones, Executive
Director, CACUR.
Mr. Jones stated that the Neighborhood Development Program (NDP) is a
new terminology for Urban Renewal and that NDP is in smaller increments than
Urban Renewal. He also stated that NDP applications are filed and funded annually,
on the basis of what can be accomplished each year .
Mr . Jones stated that if a City is to have a NDP program that it must have
an appro ve d Wo r k a ble Program; that the C i ty 1 s past, pr e sent and future ac t ivities
a r e taken into consideration before HUD will accept the applic a tion.
M r. Jones t hen c a lled on Mr . John Matthew s of the Atlanta Planni ng D e par tm e nt
t o c omm ent on the new HUD policy on New NDP P r ojects .
�-2-
Mr. Matthews stated substantially that about a month ago HUD announced
a nation-wide cutback of funds for the Neighborhocd Development Program. This
cutback in funds left Region III {includes Atlanta) with only $24, 000, 000 for 1970;
and that Miami-Dade is scheduled to receive about half of all funds for Region III,
thus leaving only $12,000,000 for the remaining five cities, including Atlanta; that
because of this cutback, HUD officials have only recently informed Atlanta it will
not permit any new NDP areas in the 1970 prog ram, which means that Plunkettown
and Lightning cannot be include d in the 1970 NDP, becuas e HUD will not accept
them. Mr. Matthews then stated that the Planning Department was not aware of
this "no new areas" policy until late last week. Copies of letter from Assistant
Regional Administrator for Renewal ·Assistance, Region III, stating the new policy,
was distributed and copy is attached to the file copy of these minutes.
Mr. Matthews also stated that the Planning Department had anticipated
improved public services and a planning assistance program in Plunkettown; and
that the initial effort was an Attitude Survey that was conducted in the area in early
August; that the main point of the operations planned for Plunkettown now is to
develop a NDP plan which will most effectively meet the needs of the residents.
However, the major constraint of the program is that the site on which Plunkettown
is located is considered {by the Planning Department) as unfit for re sidenti a l
redevelopment. This unfitness is due to the surrounding land use (industry and
the noise because of the airport); that for these reasons the area could not be
econon~ically develop e d for low-incon~e housing. Because of the noise generated
from the Airport, housing would have to be sqund proofed, but this would raise
constr·uction cost considerably , thus pricing out the present residents; that FHA
has stated that it could not insure houses in Plunkettown.
Because of the cutback in funds and the "no new areas" policy, only private
enterprise can develop housing on another site which can meet the needs of the
residents and give them an opportunity of moving together and preserving their
community.
He explained that HUD has deve loped a new program called the Interm
Assistance Program, which permits Federal assistance in several broad types of
activities designed as a "holding action 11 until an area can be reached by NDP.
The Planning Department was encouraged by Region III officials to develop such
a program in Plunkettown and, working closely with the residents 1 Planning
Committee, has developed such a program for the next year. Copies of the Interim
Assistance Program Synopsis were distributed to each member in attendance and
copy is attached to the file copy of these minutes.
Mr. M a tth e ws conclude d by saying tha t Lightning has not b e en ove rlooke d,
but b ec aus e of m a npow e r r estrictions, e fforts in Lightning have b een pha s e d a bout
four months behind Plunkettown.

Mr. Jones then called on Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment
for the Atlanta Housing Authority to present Atlanta's revised overall NDP Program
for 1970.
Mr. Openshaw preceded his scheduled presentation of the revised NDP
program by commenting that some members of the Vine City Project Area
Committee (PAC) had insisted he inform the Citizens Advisory Committee that
Vine City PAC wants to designate its own representative on the CACUR; that the
Vine City representative currently serving on CACUR is not a member of the Vine
City Project Area Committee and therefore is not familiar with the program and
cannot adequately represent PAC.
(Editorial Note: The current Vine City representative is listed as a member
of PAC on brochure recently prepared and distribute by Vine City PAC, but is not
the Chairman of the Vine City PAC, who has previously been specifically requested
by name for appointment to CACUR. All cur r-e nt members of CACUR were nominated
by a Membership Committee, appointed by the Chairman, and have been individually
appointed by the Mayor. No group in the past has arbitraily selected its own
representative on CACUR.)
Mr. Openshaw then stated that only $24, 000, 000 have been allocated by HUD
for Region III, which includes Atlanta . Atlanta is scheduled to receive only about
$7,500,000. Mr. Op enshaw stated that Atla nta had asked for 20. 7 million do llars.
Mr. Openshaw stated that there are 26 scattered sites in Bedford-Pine which
the City is to acquire in 1970 and 50 properties to rehabilitate in 1970. He also stated
that Georgia Tech II area has to be cleared for extension of Georgia Tech during 1970.
There are 15 vacant parcels to be bought in the Model Cities area, but that in only 4
out of the 6 areas could the City currently buy the vacant land. (This is because of
protest by the Model Cities Housing Committee.) The completion of Ralph McGill
Elementary School and the Martin Luther King Middle School are included in the
Model Cities program for 1970. He continued that acquisition in the Georgia State
area has to be cut back to only three properties of the eight originally requested and
that one of these is in connection with construction of a viaduct by the City; that
Vine City cannot acquire nearly all the properties desired by its PAC Committee;
very little activity in Edgewood; and that only an Interim Assistance Program would
be undertaken in Plunkettown and Lightning.
Mr. Jones then called on Mr . A. B. Padgett to present a proposed Resolution
by the CACUR .
Mr. Padgett read the proposed Re solution informing the United State Departinent
of Housing and Urban Development of the extre1ne disappointment of this Comm.ittee
over announced cutback in Federal funding for the 1970 NDP; and pointing out the
disasterous effect such extensive cutback will have on Atlanta 's Neighborhood Development Program, Community Participation and Citizen Moral in the affe~ted areas.
Copies of this Resolution were distributed and a copy is attached to the file copy of
these minutes.
�-4-
Mr. Padgett made a motion that _this Resolution be adopted and sent to the
Secretary of HUD and the Regional Administrator, Region III, of HUD. Mr. Jack
Carrollton seconded the motion, which was unaminously adopted.
Mr. Jones then presented the Proposed Budget for 1970 of the CACUR. The
total proposed budget for 1970 amounted to $4,725.00. Copy is attached to· the file
copy of theses minutes.
Mr. Padgett explained that, because the salaries of the Executive Director
and the Secretary have now been absorbed by the City of Atlanta, as part of the
Mayor's Office, that by agreement, only $3, 000 is to be allocated from the City
of Atlanta, during 1970.
Upon assurance to the Chairman by the Executive Director, that action on
the Budget need not wait for a full membership meeting, a motion was made by
Mr. Padgett that the Proposed Budg et for 1970 be adopted. The motion was seconded
by Mr. Henri J ova and was unaminously adopted.
Mr. Jones stated th a t HUD is well plea s e d with the C i tiz e ns Advisory
Committee for Urban R e n e wal in its participa tion in Urban Renewal and NDP; tha t
its activity and recommendations have influenced major decisions in Atlanta's
participation in HUD assisted progr a ms. He stated also that HUD suggested the
Citizens . Advisory C omm i t t ee for U rban R enewal h ave a n a n 1e c h a n ge , in o rde r to
get away from the out dated limite d Urban R e n e wal c oncept a nd s o tha t th e Com mittee
could broa d e n it s sc ope to inc lude th e e ntir e s p e ctrum of Community Improve m e nt;
that a HUD official had suggested tha t consider a tion be given to changing the name
to "Citizens Advisory Committe e for Community Improvement" or perhaps simply
"Citizens Advisory Committee".
Mr. Jones c ontinue d that HUD h a s a n o ve r riding policy of insur ing citi ze n
p a rticipation i n it s p r o g r a m s a nd i ns i s t s tha t mac hinery be set up s o tha t mino ri t y

Chairman Langdale appointed Executive Committee member, W. L. Calloway,
as Chairman of an Ad Hoc Committee (additional members to be added later) to
consider a name change for CACUR.
Mr. Jones then introduced Mr. Walter Denero of the Model Cities staff to
present the Proposed Public Information System for Model Cities.
Mr. Denero stated that a Convention had been set-up in Model Cities to make
the citizens aware of the problems .involved in the Model Cities program. He stated
that a survey was taken of the residents in Model Cities and the results showed that
the people do want this type of project; and that most of the residents were aware
of Urban Renewal generally, but not familiar with many details involved in the NDP
and that his proposed system is designed to make them more aware of these details
and thereby better understand the entire program. Mr. Denero distributed a pamphlet
on the Model Cities area entitled 11 A Beginning". (Copy is attached to the file
copy of these minutes.)
(Time did not permit Mr. Jones announcing that the Committee had received
acknowledgement and thanks from the family of late CACUR member, Eugene Marcus
Martin, for the Resolution of condolences and sympathy passed by the CACUR at its
October meeting. )
The meeting v.1as adjourned at 3: 30 P . M.

Padgett.
The Chairm.an then returned conduct of the meeting to Vice Chairman
Mr. Padgett then called on Mr. Jim Wright of the Model Cities Staff to
explain the Model Cities Proposed Physical Development for 1969 and 1970.
Mr. Wright's presentation consisted primarily of a brochure, prepared in .
three components, which was passed out to those in attendance . The components
were: (a) Satisfactory Community Envirorun e nt; (b) Transporta tion; (c) Housing.
Each component consisted of intemization of proposed projects for 1970; Proposed
source of funding and brief statement as to purpose of each project but without any
explanation as to the extent of each project, specific timing or priorities. Mr.
Wright then offered to respond to q u estions. There were none.
Mr. Rich sugg e ste d tha t sinc e the pr e s e nta tion was on physic a l deve lopment
that an annotated map showing proposed projects and their specific location would
be helpful. Mr. Wright responded tha t he had such a map which any interested
person could look at after the meeting.
Since Sta te R e pres e nta tive John Hoo d, Cha irma n o f the Mode l C i ti es Hou s ing
Committe e, did not att e nd th e meeting , Mr. P a d ge tt a ske d Mr . Johnnie Johnson,
Director of Model Cities, to comment on the Model Cities Housing Committee views.

Area until it h as b een spe cific a lly a pprove d (a s to loc a tion,
typ e of structur es a nd s i z e) by the H ou s ing Committee .

Committee or i t s sub-committ ee to have the responsibility

Page Three
for working out a satisfactory relocation housing plan
and an offer for the sale and development of the C-4
site and other land in the Model Cities area. The
problem of relocation housing to be given the highest
priority so that other activities of the Atlanta Housing
Authority in the Model Cities area can be resumed as
quickly as possible.
Mr. Johnson stated that the Model Cities Housing Committee was prepared
to file an injunction against the Housing "Authority to stop activity until the Committee
views had been met.
Mr. Padgett then called on Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Authority to comment on and explain the consequences
resulting from the position taken by the Model Cities Housing Committee.
Mr. Opensh aw stated that on Octob er 16, the newly reactivated Model Cities
Housing Committee advised the Atlanta Housing Authority of three major concerns
of area residents, and requested that all NDP activities be stopped until satisfactory
solutions could be worked out . The three major concerns include: (1) Rehabilitation,
(2) Di sposition of project land, and (3) Relocation . Inasmuch as the Neighborhood
Development Program (NDP), which is urban renewal on an annual basis, was
designed to respond to the needs of area residents, to assist them in the physical
improvement of th e ir neighborhoods, th e Atlanta Housing Authority readily agreed
to stop all NDP acti v ities in the Model Cities Area in order to explore new alternatives
in the direction the program should take.
The Model Cities Housing Committee expressed serious concerns of
property owners unable to bring their properties up to the required Project
Rehabilitation Standards, a requirement to be eligible for Federal Financial
assistance. The 1968 Housing Act imposed income limitations on families eligible
for 3% direct rehabilitation loans. The Atlanta Housing Authority has agreed to
review the Project Rehabilitation Standards and the Federal regulations governing
rehabilitation procedures with a resident committee in order to arrive at a solution.
The Model Cities Housing Committee requested that the Atlanta Housing
Authority withdraw its invitation for the sale and development of Parcel C-4 in
Peoplestown, and to prepare documents requiring the redeveloper to come from the
Model Cities area.
Attorneys representing the Atlanta Housing Authority and
the Model Cities Mass Convention are in the process of preparing bid documents
restricting the sale of urban renewal l and in the Model Cities area to area residents
or organizations.
The third concern expressed by the Model Cities Housing Committee was the
complete rejection of the type of relocation housing units proposed by the Authority.
These units, designed by an architect to provide maximum li veabi lity within the
cost limitations and Federal guidelines, contained three bedrooms (two bedrooms
�Page Four
8 feet by 8 fe_et, one bedroom 10 feet by 12 feet). The Housing Committee indic ate d
that residents would rej ec t mobile ho1nes, and w ould insist on pre-fabricated modular
units. Mr. Openshaw indicated th at the Housing Act of 1949 as amended prohibits
the use of urban renew a l funds for the construction of structures, that HUD guidelines
specifically limit relocation housing units to mobile homes built on a chassis, without
permanent foundation, easily relocateable. Nonetheless the Housing Authority has
agreed to explore with a residents' committee a lternative solutions related to
temporary relocateable housing in the Model Cities Area.
Mr. Openshaw stated that a P o licy Committee, a Relocation Committee and
a Rehabilitation Committee, composed of repr es entatives of the Model Cities Agency,
the Atlanta Housing Authority and th e Mass Convention, Inc., have been appointe d
to seek solutions to the problems concerning rehabilitation, sale of l a nd, and relocation
in the Model Cities area, and to permit the Atla nta Housing Authority to resume the
1969 NDP acti vi ties voluntarily halte d on Octob e r 17.
Mr. Openshaw indicated that the two major problems confronting the Atla nta
Housing Authority, the implementing agency for carrying out the 1969 NDP plans for
the Model Cities area, . plans prepared by the Model Cities staff with complete resident
involvement, are:
1.
Conflict between the expressed desires of the residents and limitations
of Federal regulations.
2. The NDP plan for 1969 and also 1970 we re approved by neighborhood
residents as well as the Model Cities E xec utive Board without benefit
of the recently activated Model Citi es Housing Committee's stated
objectives. For example, the 1969 NDP plan for the Model Cities area
designated four sites for permanent housing requiring the r e location
. of 278 famili es , 77 individu a ls, and 10 business concerns, all to be
relocated before rede ve lopment could take place on the specific sites
invol ve d. To require mid- wa y through the cal endar year that acquisition
of land and relocation of families b e discontinu e d until suitable relocatable
housing is provide within the area is to introduce a valid c oncept, but
one that will prevent the Authority from completing the NDP plan within
the calendar year 1969. The 1970 NDP plans, prepared by four planning
consultants with involvement of residents of the six Model Cities
neighborhoods, require the relocation of 609 families during the calendar
year 1970, with no vacant land includ ed in the acquisition program, nor
funds for relocation housing. While the Housing Authority will make
available for occupancy during 1970 over 2, 650 d we lling units for families
of low and moderate income, these units are not loc ated w ithin the Model
Cities area, hence the Housing Authority is once again placed in an
impossible position of trying to carry out plans approved by the neighborhoods
in conformance with objectives recently expressed of the Model Cities
Housing Committee.
�Page Five
Mr. Openshaw indicated that the City's NDP application for 1970 is already
30 days overdue and that the application cannot be submitted to HUD until the situation
in Model Cities is resolved.
Mr. Openshaw stated that the stopping of all NDP activities in the Model Cities
area becomes all the more acute when we consider the f a ct that unencumbered funds
for cal~ndar year 19 6 9 must be return e d to W a shington for redistributed in the national
program, and that Atlanta has been advis e d that Fed e ral funds for the 1970 NDP have
been reduced to appro x imately 45. 9% of . the amount allocated for 1969.
Mr. Jones asked if any substantial delay in the relocation and acquisition of
sites in the Model Cities area wouldn't seriously jeopardize the City's "Bre a kthrough"
application for which sites in the Mod e l C i ties area h a d be e n offered as priority
prototype housing sites, to be cleared by January 1970? Mr. Open.shaw's r e ply was
that this is true.
Mr. Openshaw closed his comments with an optomistic note that h e hoped the
difficulty with the Model Cities Housing Committee would be resolved over the we e kend
and that activity in the Model Cities area could resume.
Mr. Johnni e Johnson wa s then give n a n opportunity to comment a gain for
Representative John Hood in rebutt a l of any of Mr . Openshaw' s remarks.
Mr. Johnson explained th a t h e thou g ht th e sit u a tion h a d arisen throu g h l a c k of
timely communication between a ll e lem e nts involved and e x pressed hopes of a compris e
solution soon .
Because of the time element involved, a more lengthy discussion w a s precluded.
Mr. Padgett then ask e d both Mr . Johnson and Mr. Openshaw what the CACUR
could do now to assist in resol v ing the matter? Both seemed to think tha t for the time
being it would be be st to await further d e velopments.
Col. Jones then presented Vice Cha irman Padg e tt with the Financial Statement
for the period September 30 to October 30, 1969, which was read to the Committee.
Col. Jones then read a Resolution e x pressing sympathy and condolences to the
family and business associates (Atlanta Life Insurance Company) of the late CACUR
member, E . M . Martin .
The Resolution w as una minously adopted and will be sent to the family and
busines s associa t es of the l a te E. M . Martin.

Mr. Rich suggested that since the presentation was on physical development
that an annotated map showing proposed projects and their specific location would

Since State Representative John Hood, Chairman of the Model Cities Housing
Committee, did not attend the meeting, Mr . Padgett asked Mr. Johnnie Johnson,
Director of Model Cities, to comment on the Model Cities Housing Committee views.
Mr. Johnson stated substantially that the Housing Committee of the Model
Citi es area had expressed desires that the Atlanta Housing Authority take the
following action immediately, so that th e Model Cities program can proceed in a
manner acceptable to the residents of Model Cities:
1.
That no relocation housing be brought into the Model Cities
Area until it has been specifically approved (as to lo cation,
type of structures and size ) by the Housing Committee.
2. That all activity of the Atlanta Housing Authority in the
Model Cities Area - including acquisition of property,
displacement of residents, and demolition of structuresexcept those activities in which the Atlanta Housing
Authority has a l egal obligation to proceed and from
which a release cannot be obtained, be immediately
stopped until the problem of relocation housing is resolved.
3 . That the October 1, 1969 , offering of the Atlanta Housing
Authority for the sale and development of the C-4 Peoplestown
site be immediately withdrawn.

Authority in the Model Cities area can be resumed as
quickly as possible.
Mr. Johnson stated that the Model Cities Housing Committee was · prepared
to file an injunction against the Housing Authority to stop activity until the Comrnittee
views had been met.
Mr. Padgett then called on Mr. Howard Openshaw , Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Authority to comment on and explain the consequences
resulting from the position taken by the Mode l Cities Housing Committee.
Mr. Openshaw stated that on October 16, the newly reactivated Model Cities
Housing Committee advised the Atlanta Housing Authority of three major concerns
of area residents, and requested that all NDP activities be stopped until satisfactory
solutions could be worked out. The three 1n a jor concerns include: (1) Rehabilitation,
(2) Disposition of project l a nd, and (3) Relocation. Inas much as the Neighborhood
Development Pro g ram (NDP), w hich is urban renew a l on an annual basis, was
designed to respond to the needs of area resid ents, to assist them in the physic a l
improvement of their neighborhoods, th e Atlanta Housing A uthority readily agr e ed
to stop all NDP activities in the Model Cities Area in orde r to explore new alternatives
in the direction the progr a m should take.
The Model Cities Housing Committee expressed serious concerns of
property owners unable to bring their properties up to the required Project
Rehabilitation Standa rds, a requirement to be eligible for Federal Financial
assistance. The 1968 Housing Act imposed income limita tions on families eligible
for 3% direct rehabilitation loans. The Atl ant a Housing Authority has agree d to
review the Project Rehabilitation Standards and the Federal regulations governing
rehabilitation procedures with a resident committee in order to arrive at a solution.
The Model Cities Housing Committee requested that the Atlanta Housing
Authority withdraw its invitation for the sale and development of Parcel C-4 in
Peoplestow n, and to prepare documents requiring the redeveloper to come from the
Model Cities area.
Attorneys representing the Atlanta Housing Authority and
the Model Cities Mass Convention are in the process of preparing bid documents
restricting the sale of urban renewal land in the Model Cities area to area residents
or organizations.
The third concern expressed by the Model Cities Housing Committee was the
complete rejection of the type of relocation housing units proposed by the Authority.
These units, designed by an architect to provide maximum liveability within the
cost limitations and Federal guidelines, contained three bedrooms (two bedrooms
�Page Four
8 feet by 8 feet, one bedroom 10 feet by 12 feet). The Housing Committee indicated
that_r esidents would reject mobile h01n es , and would insist on pre-fabricated modular
units. Mr. Openshaw indicated that the Housing Act of 1949 as amended prohibits
the use of urban renewal funds for the construction of structures , that HUD guidelines
specifically limit relocation housing units to mobile homes built on a chassis, without
permanent foundation, easily relocateable. Nonetheless the Housing Authority has
agreed to explore with a residents I com.mittee alternative solutions related to
temporary relocateable housing in the Model Cities Area.
Mr. Openshaw stated that a Polrcy Committee, a Relocation Committee and
a Rehabilitation Comm ittee, composed of representatives of the Model Cities Agency,
the Atlanta Hou s ing Authority and the Mass Conve ntion, Inc., have been appointed
to seek solutions to the proble ms concerning rehabilita tion, sale of l and, and relocation
in the Model Cities area, and to permit th e Atlanta Hou sing Authority to resume the
1969 NDP activities voluntarily halted on October 17.
Mr. Op enshaw indicated that the two major problems confronting the Atlanta
Housing Authority, the implementing age ncy for carrying out the 19 69 NDP plans for
the Mode l Cities area, plans pr e p a red by the Model Cities s taff with complete resident
inv ol vement, a re:
1.
Conflict b etween the expressed desires of the residents and limita tions
of Federal r egula tions .
2. The NDP plan for 196 9 a nd als o 1970 we r e ap proved by n e i g hbo rho:::Jd
residents as well as the Mode l Citie s Executive Boa rd without b enefit
of the rec e ntly activated Model Cities Hou sing Committe e I s stated
objectives. For exampl e, the 19 6 9 NDP plan for the Model Citie s area
designa ted four sites for p e rmanent hou s ing r e quiring the reloc ation
of 278 families, 77 individua l s , a nd 10 bu sine ss concerns , a ll to be
relo cat e d b e for e r e d eve lopm e nt c ould t a k e p l ace on th e s p ec ifi c s i t es
involve d. To r e quir e mid-way throu g h th e cal e ndar y e ar t h a t a c quisition
of land and reloc a tion of famili e s be dis co ntinu e d until suitable r e lo catabl e
housing is provide within the area is to introduce a valid concept, but
one that will prevent the Author ity from compl etin g the NDP p l a n within
the cal enda r y ear 1969. The 1970 NDP plans, prepared by four planning
consultants with involve ment of r e sident s of the six Mode l Citi e s
neighborhoods, requir e the re l o cation of 6 0 9 families during the cal e nda r
y ear 1970, with no vacant l and included in the ac quisiti o n program, nor
funds for relocation hou s ing. While the Housing Authority will make
avail abl e f or occupa ncy during 197 0 ove r 2, 65 0 dwe lling unit s for f a milies
of low and mode rate incom e , th e se units a r e not l ocate d within t h e Mode l

Hous i ng Committee .
�Page Five
Mr. Op enshaw indicated that the City's NDP application for 1970 is already
30' days overdue and that the application cannot be submitted to HUD until the situation
in Model Cities is resolved.
Mr. Openshaw stated that the stopping of a ll NDP activities in the Model Cities
area becomes all the more acute when we consider the fact that unencumbered funds
for calendar year 1969 must be returned to Washington for redistributed in the national
program, and that Atlanta has been advised that Federal funds for the 1970 NDP have
been reduced to approximate ly 45 . 9% .of the amount allocated for 1969.
Mr . Jones aske d if any substantial delay in the relocation and acquisition of
sites in the Model Cities area wouldn 1 t seriously jeopardize the C ity ' s 11 Breakthrough 11
application for which sites in the Model Cities area had been offered as priority
prototype housing sites, to be cleared by January 1970? Mr. Openshaw 1 s reply was
that this is true.
Mr. Op enshaw closed his comments with an optomistic note that he hoped the
difficulty with the Model Cities Housing Committee would be resolved over the weekend
and that activity in the Model Cities area could resume.
Mr. Johnnie Johnson was then g iven an opportunity to comment again for
Representative John Hood in rebuttal of any of Mr. Op enshaw 1 s remarks.
Mr. Johnson explained that he thought the situation had arisen through l a ck of
timely communication between· all elements involved and expressed hopes of a comprise
solution soon.
Bec ause of the time element involved, a more lengthy discussion was precluded.
Mr . Padgett then asked both Mr. Johnson and Mr. Op enshaw what the CACUR
could do now to assist in resolving the matter? Both seemed to think that for the time
being it would be be st to await further developments.
Col. Jones then presented Vice Chairman Padgett with the Financia l Statement
for the period September 30 to Octob er 30, 1969, which was read to the Committee.
Col. Jones then read a Resolution expressing sympathy and condolences to the
family and business associates (Atlanta Life Insurance Company) of the late CACUR
member, E. M. Martin.
The Resolution was unaminously adopted and will be sent to the family and
business associates of the late E. M. Martin.
The meeting wad adjourned at 3:15 P. M.

Atlant a , Ge orgia 30303
Dear Mr. Jones:
Mr. Parsells has asked me to repl y to y our l etter of Augu st 18 , 1969
r el at i ve to t h e Executive Committee's c oncern over several fe a tures
of At lanta's Urban Renewal Program . First, let me say that we share
t he Committee's c oncern over the length of t ime required to close out
earlier pro j e c ts. However, t o imply tha t the length of time t aken t o
cl ose out proj ects is due t o an apparent l a ck of aggres siveness on the
part of the Authority is ludicrous . The original five urban renewal
pr o je c ts have been amended f orty-two times, requi ring an additional
eight million dollars from the Federal government, and resulti ng in a
s t adium , expansi on of Georgia State Colle ge, additional land for s chools,
parks, and neighborhood faciliti e s, acquisition of commercial properties
on Ge orgia Avenue, and numerous other improvements. The average length
of time inv olved in securing Fede ral approval of an amendment has been
twelve months, with several requiring thirty months.
A se con d ma jor fa c t or delay ing proj ect close- outs is the funding and
cons t ruction of non-cash grants-in-aid. The Butler Street Project,
for example, c ould not be closed ou t earlier because the proposed
school was not funded until the passage of the 1968 bond issue, with
construction starting in August, 1969.
Even after renewal land has been sold , many developers have experienced
delays caused by the tight money market, high interest rates and
soaring costs.
Nonetheless, projects are not closed out without spe cial effort. Re cently I established a spacial task force to identify and expedite all
remaining activities to be completed in the original projects. Two of
these projects - Butler Street and Georgia State - have been completed
this year and are waiting fin al HUD audit. I want to assure the Committee that the Authority recognizes its respon sibility to proceed as
rapidly as possible to complete the e arly proj e cts.
Et? c/ Z
�- 2I share the Commi ttee ' s c once r n over its seemi ngly perfunctory r ole of
l ate. If it is to perform its fun c tion a s outline d in the Al de rman:i. c
r e solu ti on creating the Committee, ie., a dv ise the May or a n d Boa r d of
Aldermen and o t h er publi c bodi e s con cerne d with Urba n Renewal i n the
-City, t h en i t seems t o me that it must c ontinue to review pr opose d
Ur ban Renewal a ctiviti e s f or mul a ted by the vari ous proj e c t area commi t tees
with an ove rview of t h e to tal needs of the Ci ty. The Com.mittee's vi ews
on pend i n g redev e l opment a c t ions s hould b e express e d t o the Alde rman i c
Pl anning a nd Re development Committee, as did Bob Summerville ~ fo rme r
Commit tee Chairman. The Author ity wi l l co operate i n any way p os s i ble
in -ass i st i ng t he Committee in c arrying out i t s functi on of pr ov iding
guidan ce and direc ti on to the City in the a dministrati on of its Urb an

Invitational Notice, Agenda and other related Do cuments for the meeting
are attached to the file copy of these minutes.
Vice-Chairman Padgett opened the meeting by welcoming those present.
He then stated that the first item on the Agenda would be put off until Chairman
Langdale arrived. The second item on the Agenda was the presentation o f the
Vine City NDP plan. Mr. Padgett then introduced Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director
of Urban Redevelopment of the Atlanta Housing Authority.
Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Robert Barnett, Project Dir ector of
Vine City, to present the NDP plan.
Mr. Barnett first explained the georgraphical lo cation of Vine C ity. The
boundaries being: Northside Drive on the East, Simpson Road on the Nor th,
Griffin Street on the West and Hunter Street on the South. He also stated t hat there
are approximately 154 acres, with 900 families and 3, 500 individuals locat ed in the
Vine City area.
Mr . Barnett stated that the fir st thing s that were done in Vine C ity was
to form a local committeee known as the PAC or Proj e ct Area Committe to represent
�Page Two
the fnterests of the citizens of the Vine City Community. He stated that the PAC
holds meeting at least once a week (usually every Monday night), and that a survey
was made to collect facts on Vine City; such as population, family s i ze , amount
of income, heads of household, etc.
The survey showed that the average income
for the Vine City areas is $161. 00 a month, and that 76% of the property in the area
has ab~entee landlords and 24% is owner occupied. The survey also showed _that
the residents of the Vine City area wanted more shopping, transportation and
community facilities.
Mr . Barnett further stated that the target area for the 1970 NDP plan
has already been designated. The target area, which was shown by a map
presentation, has 122 structures (162 families), with 92 of these structures as
major deterior ation, 9 as a minor deterior ation and only 1 standard structure.
By map presentation, Mr. Barnett showed th e lay out for the 1970 NDP plan,
with a 24 acre p ark, commercial area , garden type a p artments , town houses
and single family residences.
Vice-Chairman Padgett thanked Mr . Barnett for his very informative
presentation on the Neighborhood D eve lopm ent Program for Vine City in 1970.
Mr. Op enshaw then introduced Mr. Curtis Parrish, Project Director
of the Edgewood area. In turn, Mr. Parrish introduced Mr. Harry Adley and
Mr. Albert Twiggs of Adley Associates to pre sent the Edgewood NDP plan for
1970.
Mr. Adley and Mr. Twiggs pres e nte d a slid e presentation of the g ood
and bad areas of the Edgewood project. Mr . Adley str esse d that the area of
Edgewood should be rehabilitated, not torn down. Four sections of the Edg ewood
area have tentatively been selected for activity to start in 1970. Sammye Coan
School is a good example of the type of environment Edgewood is working for
in its effort to develop a better Community. Mr. Adley agreed to provide the
Executive Director with a summary sheet on the Edgewood project statistics.
Mr. Padgett thanked Mr. Adley and Mr. Twiggs for a very fine presentation
of Edgewood. Becaus e of the time element involved, a fifteen minute presentation
was given on each NDP plan and a give minute question and answer period.
There was much discus sion on th e subj ect and value of rehabilitation and
the accusation that rehabilitation does not l ast, because the individuals do not
keep up their homes or property.
Vhie-Chairman Padgett the n stated that there was not enough time for a
detailed discussion on the merits of reha bilitation and suggested that the subject
of rehabilitation be put on the Agenda for the n ext meeting.
�Page Three
Mr. Padgett called on Mr. Openshaw to p resent the overall Neighborhood
Development Program for 1970 (copy attached, E nc l. 1). Attention of CACUR
members was particularly called to the enclosed copy of recent letter from the
Regional Office of HUD stating that HUD funding t o the Region III area is only
$24,000, 000; and that this is only 45. 9% of the am unt allocated for the first
year's activity for the six NDP programs now under way in Region III.
In response to question from the Executiv e Director, CACUR, as to
proposed activity in the portion of the Bedford-Pin e NDP area south of Forrest
Avenue. {This is where the bulk of the most dilapic.ated housing is located. )
Mr. Openshaw stated that no activity is planned i n that area for 1969- 70 except
acquisition of a few scattered dilapidated structur e s, requested by the Mayor.
Mr. P a dgett then called on Mr. Opensha w to respond to comments on
the West End Urban Renewal Project .previously s u bmitted by the Executive Committee ..
Mr. Openshaw read a letter addressed t o the Executive Director, explaining the delays in many of the Urban Renewal proje cts, including West End (Encl. 2).
After considerable_discussion pertaining to certa in aspects of the West
End project, the meeting was adjourned at 3:30 P~ M.
Financial state prepared by the Executiv e Director, was not presented
during the meeting, but was subsequently turned o ver to the Vice-Chairman.
In view of impe nding City elections , Item 1 on the Age nda , "Explana tion
of Proposed Reorganization of CACUR", was om i ted until a later date.

Dear Mr. Persells:
Subject:
Project No. Ga . A-2
Neighborhood Development Program
Second Year Activities
We have b een a dvis ed by Assistant Secretary Law rence M. Cox that
$24,000,000 has been established as t!'le amount availe.ble for the
second year 1 s activity of the six Neighborhood Developme nt Programs
now under way in Re gion III. This a1wunt of capital grant funds
equals l~5.9% of the amount .allocated for the first year's activity
for the s~x programs .
The Regional Office has the responsibility for dividing the amount
of $24,ooo ,ooo among the six progra1:1s . We intend to use other
criteria than merely multiplying last year 's alloca tions by 45.9%;
each city's needs, its record of perfor~ance, and its ability to
stretch some activities into a subsequent year will be considered.
We provide y·ou this information as a basis for your preparation of
the Nei ghborhood Development Program Application for 1970.
Sincerely yours,

Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dear Mr. Jones:
Mr. Parsells has asked me to reply to your letter of· August 18, 1969
relative to the Executive Committee's concern over several features
of Atlanta's Ur b a.n Rene wal Program . Fir s t , let me say that we share
the Committee 's concern over the leng th of ti me r equ i r ed to close out
earlier proj e cts. However, .to imply tha t the leng th of time taken to
close out projects is due to an apparent l a ck of aggressivene ss on the
part of the Authority is ludicrous . The original fi v e urban r enewal
projects have been a.mended fort y -two times , requi ri ng an additional
eight million dollars from the Fe deral g ove rnment, and resulting in a
stadium, expansion of Georgia State Colle g e , additional land for schools,
parks, and neighborhood facilities, acqui s ition of commerci al properties
on Georgia Avenue, and numerous other i mpr ovements. The average length
of time involved in securing Federal appr oval of an amendment has been
twelve months, with several requiring thirty months.
A second major factor delaying project close-outs is the funding and
construction of non-cash grants - in - aid. The Butler Street Project,
for example, could not be closed out earlier because the proposed
school was not funded until the passage of the 1968 bond issue, with
constr uction starting in August, 1969.
Even after renewal land has been sold, many developers have experienced
del ays caused by the tight money ma~ket, high interest rates and
s oa ring costs.
Nonethel ess, proj e c ts a r e not closed out with out s pec i al ef fo rt . Re cently I e sta blished a s pac ial tas k fo r ce t o iden t ify and expedi t e a ll .
remaining a ctivities to be c ompl e ted i n the ori ginal pro jec ts . Two of
theae pro j ects - Butler Street and , Ge orgia State - have been completed
this year and are waiting final HUD audit. I want to assure the Committee that the Authority r e cogniz e s its responsibility to proceed as
rapidly as possible to complete the early projects .
EP>c.l 2.
�-2I share the Connnittee's concern over its seemingly perfunctory role of
late. If it is to perform its fun c t ion as outlined in the Alde rmanic
resolution creating the Committe e, ie., advise the Mayor and Bo ard of
Aldermen and other public bodies conce r ned with Urban Renewal in the
City, then it seems to me tha t .it must continue to review proposed
Urban Renewal activities formulated by the various project area committees
with an overview of the total needs of the City. The Committee's views
on pending redevelopment actions should be expressed to the Alde rmanic
Planning and Redevelopment Committee, as did Bob Summerville, former
Committee Chairman. The Autho r ity will cooperate in any way poss t ble
in assisting the Committee in c arry ing out its function of providing
guidance and direction to the City in the administration of its Urban
Renewal program.
The comments pertaining to the West End Urban Renewal Project are obviously personal expressions of frustrations shared by the Authority.
The West End Urban Renewal Project is now in its third year of ex ecution and to date the Autho ri ty h as a cqui r ed 516 p a rcels of l and (87%),
relocated 457 familie s and 77 bus inesses (97%) , demolished 354 s t r uctures
(74%), sold or put under agre ement for sale 54 acres of land (55%), and ·
completed rehabilitation of 504 structures (22%). In addition, the
·
Authority h a s acquired and conveyed to the City 8.7 acres of land for
park development, and the 1.1 million dolla r Dean Rusk Elementary School
has been completed. The redevelope r for the 15 a cre enclosed mall
shopping center is pre s ently securing l eases, with cons truction s cheduled
in 1970.
In spite of the progress made to d a t e , the re a re three specific areas
in West End where progr e ss h a s been del ayed. The fir s t i s the seven
acre t r act a dj a cen t to the Pa rk Stree t Me thodis t Church. This area
involve s a l and u se change and is i n clude d in an amendment submi tte d
to HUD on June 17, 1969. On Se ptember 23, HUD &pproved an Autho r ity
request to procee d with a public h earing and loca l adoption of ~he
plan amendment pursuant to offering the land for s ale for resident ial
re-use. The public hearing h a s be e n s che duled for October 17 befor e
the Planning and Development Committee.
A second area involves some twenty-f our acre s of l and in the vicinity
of Lee and Oglethor pe, presently designated fo r of fice wa r e hous e a nd
general office use. The Wes t End Advisory Committee had prev iously
agreed tha t this area needed furthe r study in light of the proposed
location of rapid transit in the area.
The third area involves the motel and residential uses on Oak Street,
between As hby and Peeples Streets. The three a cre motel site was on
the market for 18 months and no propos als we re received. Five rede velopers submitted proposals for 76 dwelling units on pa rcel 19, but
the West End Advis ory Committee recommended rejection of all pr oposal s ,
r e - study of the site i n conjunction with the motel tra ct, and re- of fe r
fo r sale . The sta t u s of the West End plan will be di scu ss ed wi th t he
West End Adv isory Committ ee on Octobe r l.
The Authority recognizes t he u rgency of p roceeding as rapi dly as possible
in e a ch of the e ight conventional ·ur ban renewal areas and five neighborhood development program areas in t h e City. I want to assure the Committee that Mr. Parsells and I have commi tted ourselves to this task
while making the program responsive t o human needs.
�-3We pledge our con tinued cooperat i on to CACUR and others de v oted to
making Atlanta the great city it is destined to become .

Chairman Langd a le opened the meeting by welcoming those present.
The Chairman went to the second item on the agenda because Mr.
Bob Bivens was late to the meeting. Second on the program agenda was
a presentation by Mr. Frank Sheetz of Sheetz and Bradfield, Ar chitects,
on " What is Public Housing?"
The present a tion dealt mainly with small towns rather than l arge
cities, about the requirements that ar e set up that make a town or
city elligible for p u blic housing . The presentat ion als o gave the
numbe r of Housi ng Au t ho rities that are loc ate d in the southern part
of the United States~ whi ch are:

The Chairman thanked Mr. Sheetz for his pre~entation to the · Com~i~tee
and ask ed him ab out an example of Public Housing he used in his
presentation.
Mr. Sheetz stated that that particular project was the Bankhead
Project. This project has 500 units, including 4, 5 and 6 bedrooms
and cost from $16,800 to $18,000 per unit.
Mr. Edgar Schukraft congratulated Mr. Sheetz on his presentation and
stated that was the best presentation on Public Housing he h a d ever
seen and the best understood.
The Chairman then asked Mr. Sheetz if Atlanta is behind in Public
Housing?
�PAGE TWO
Mr. Sheetz commented · that this is really a policy matter, but
Atlanta is behind in Public Housing because of the many slum areas
that have not been cleared away.
The Chairman then called on Mr. Bob Bivens to make his report
to the Committee.
Mr. Bivens reported that he, Doris Lockerman and Mr. W. L.
Calloway had made a list of sug gested candidates for membership
of the Citizens Advis ory Committee for Urb a n Renewal. He further
stated that this list is not to be int erpreted as final or complete,
but rather as a work list to include both additions and deletions.
Mr. Bivens made a recommendation that the Chairma n review the entire
list of Committee a ppointees in light of n e wly defined Committee
purposes and functions and a ppo i nt an 8- 12 member Executive Committee
for assisting him in carrying out the mi ssion of the Committee.
Mr. Bivens then stated that CACUR n e eds a re-definition of purpose.
This Sub-Committee consists of hlr. Biv e ns, Dean Alex Lacy and Mr.
A. B. Padgett. hlr. Bivens st a ted that much of the success of
Atlanta's urban renewal activity is direc t ly attribut a ble to the
fine, active participation of a representative c r oss-section of
citizens who have helped g uide the prog ra m, ask qu e stions and provide
liaison with various sectors of the entire community.
He continued tha t over the past several yea rs, the approach of
urban renewal has c ha nged in ma ny ways, both nationally and locally:
1.
Greater emphasis is now b e ing plac e d on citize n
participa tion in the planning proc es s,
2.
Rehabilitation and upgrading are superseding
bulldozing and clearance,
3.
The new "Model Cities" program introduces a
bold new approach,
4.
The Ne i g hborhood De velopme nt Program (NOP)
represents a new, fast-moving approa ch capable
of accelerating the plann i n g and ·execution o f .
renewal activity to accomplish community goals •
. That b e c a use of thes e cha n g es, thi s is a good time to re~ d e fine
the mis s i on o f the cit ize ns ' or ga niza t i on, de termine th e me mb ers h ip
compos it i on n e c essar y to a ccomplis h s uch mission, and o rga n i z e the
committee to move for ward in facing the new cha llenges a head.
Mr . Bi vens a lso s t a ted th a t the Committ ee is not being approached
f o r ad v ice , b ut ra t her is beng informe d af t er p l ans ha v e alrea d y been
dev eloped and v ital d ecisions and c ommitment s made, and that in fact
t he Citizens Advis o r y Committee has become lar ge ly a "rubber stamp"
organization , in wh i c h t he i nte n t of Fed e ral req uirements i s not only
aborted, but al s o in wh i ch t he valuable res o urce of talent and mature
adyice is not brought _t o b ear on v ital renewal programs.
�PAGE THREE
If the Committee is to serve in the more constructive role,
then the following suggestions are recommended, and membership
c·onstituted accordingly:
1. That all plans by the Housing Authority, Model Cities
Group, Planning Department and others related to rehabilitation and
renewal be presented to the Citizens Advisory Committee or its
Executive Committee during the development and before approva l so
that the Committee may per f orm its functions of review and be ' in
position to advise, and so tha t t he Commi ttee can help sell the
programs through a real unders \a nding of the plans and their importance
to the City.
2. That the b usiness community continue its active
financial participation in the staff cos t s of this program, perhaps
to the extent of 1/3 of staff cos ts, with the City paying 2/3 of
such cost.
3. That the staff offices be housed in City Hall as close
to the Mayor and Assistant hlayor as possible.
4. For retirement purposes and o t her City benefits, that
the Executive Director be an employee of the City of Atlanta.

Because of the time element involved Mr. Bivens stated that the
Executive Committee should study the revised list of members (the
names that were passed out to each member of the Executive Committee),
so that names could be taken off or others added.
The Chairman agreed. to discuss this at the next Executive Comm'ittee
Meeting next month.
The Chairman stated that by 1972 all the money will be used up
out of the City funds to build housing (matching funds for NDP areas)
that the plan now used is that you must pay as you go.
Mr. Richard Rich stated that therefore money is ne eded before any
action can be taken. Discussion ensued between the Chairman and Mr.
Rich on clarification of the matter.
Mr. Edgar sc'hukra ft stated that he has been working on the West

committee to move forward in facing the new challenges ahead.
Mr. Bivens also stated that the Committee is not being approached
for advice, but rather is behg informed after plans have already been

those making such recommendations would not be revealed).
The Chairman then announced that the 2nd item on the ~riginal agenda (special
Committee Report by Mr. Bob Bivens) had been struck because of unavoidable
abs_ence from the City of Mr . Bivens. However, the Chairman called on Mr. A. B'.
�-2-
Padgett, member of the Committee and Vice-Chairman, CACUR to give a resume of
the Committee's work to-date.
Mr. Padgett reported that the Committee had met and considered a restatement
of purpose of CACUR, overall operational polic y , structured reorganiza,tion and
revision of the membership list ; and that the committee is w orking on a report
dealing with these matters for submission to t he entire membership of CACUR at
an early date.
.
Mr. Padgett mentioned briefly some of the thinking of the Committee on
reorganization and possibly recommendation for formation of some sub-committees ,
relating to special activitie s whi ch are being init ially considered. (Attached to
file copy of these minute s).
Mr. Padgett stated that tI:e Committee felt there should be no meeting during
July and August of the full membership and that by the September meeting the
Committee would have its full report in final form to submit to the overall Committee.
Mr. Rich poi nte d out that ther e app e ar e d to b e ov e r_laping r e spons ibilities
and some duplication of effort.
Mr. Padgett concurred and stated that of course ther e could, and probably
would, be some consolidati on ; that principal a c t ivities p e rtaining t o the ove rall
Urban Renewal P r o gram had b een i n itially lis t e d s o as n ot to overlook a ny i m portant
role.
The Chairman obtained agreement from the members not to meet in July and
August, but to hold E xe cutive Comm ittee m eeting s on ly during those mon t h s and
called upon the m emb e rshi p to subm it to the E xe cutive Dir ector recommendation s
f or i n clusion in the rev i s e d membe rshi p iis t.
M r. Schukraf t s t ate d that he would like to advi se on the reorganiz ati on of
CACUR . The Chairm_a n suggested that he meet w ith Mr . Bob Biv_ens _and M r . A . B.
Padge tt p rivatel y fo r this purpo s e . Mr. Padg ett a gr eed .
Mr. Jim W right , P hysic a l Pla n ner of M ode l C ities , was t hen called u p o n to
present his proposed M odel Cities Urban Design Plan. . He explained his proposal,
in which he was as s i s t e d b y Pr o fes so r " P at" C onnell of Ge o rg ia Te ch . The presentation was e s sentially a rather int ricate a nd vague p r op o s a l f o r d evelopment of
a design plan, rather t h an pre s entat i o n of plan itself, which has not yet been
initiated. (Note: After the meeting Mr. Wright then requested of Dean Lacy endorse ment of the proposal by CACUR.)

Mr. Schukraft stated that he was puzzled; that he wants to see action; that
if we are not careful, all the monies will be eaten up in planning and administration
before the action starts. He then inquired about the special buses now being
provided for the Model Cities area which go into West End with nobody riding th~m?
Mr. Johnny C. Johnson, Director of Model Cities, supplemented the explanation given by Mr. Wright, and explained quite effectively the purpose of the bus
route and the theory of othe r sociological problems which Model Cities is trying
to solve.
The Chairman stated that as he understands this, the proposal appears to be
one for developing a means for regulating and coordinating services and developments in the Model Cities area and an appeal for monies with which to provide
these functions; that much of the monies would apparently be provide d by suppl e mented funds of the Model Cities Program.
Mr. Charles Davis, Finance Director, was then called upon to rediscus s
his earlier report of April 22nd to the Committee pretaining to the cost and financial
problems of the Urban Renewal Program.
Mr . Davis reviewed the history of the Urban Renewal Program in Atlanta,
starting with the McDaniel Street Project, initiated in 1954, which was declared
unconstitutional, and the necessity to then obtain special enabling legislation to
make Urban Renewal constitutional in Georgia.
He then discussed the initial 3 Urban Renewal Projects adopted in 1955 and
B_o nd Issues floated with which to .pay the City's share (other than the sizable credits
for improvements in kind). He mentioned that the program has now expanded
to 10-12 projects, all of which have been slow to get into execution, usually about
5 years to get off the g round and anothe~ 5-10 years to exe cute.
He then explained the N eighborhood D evelopment Program (NDP) a pay -as you - go program in yearly increments (plan 1 year and execute the 2nd year, or
plan and execute the same year); that this ·~ecessltates ~maller projects and
requires good planning a·n d adequate funding.
·
Mr. Davis pointed out that by 1973 the City of Atlanta will require $7,000,000
to maintain present servic e l evels of the exis ting Url:>an Renewal Projects; that
new source of revenue will be required.
Mr. Davis then turned the presentation over to Mr . Fountain of his office,
who reviewed the financial report of his department, presented initially to
CACUR on April 22nd',portions of which have since been updated and revised. Copy
of Mr. Fountain's .report is atta~hed to the file copy of these minutes. · Following
are high lights of that report:
+
�-4-
For the 8 Urban Renew al Proj ects in E x ecuti on:
Net Project Costs
Local Non-Cash Grants -in-aid
Local Cash and Real Estate Credits
$60,000,000
20,000,000
1,000,000
Long delayed closin g out of these projects, has cost in interest charges alone
(include·d in the Net Project costs) $4. 5 million or 7 1/2 %.
Cash funds to defray local share c·osts came from 1957 and 1963 General
Obligation Bond Is sue totaling 3. 2 million of which currently $2 .1 million are
unincumb er ed.
Of this amount $1. 7 is expected to be needed for the Bedford - Pine 1970 NDP
project.
The $20,000,000 local grants -in - aid represent the eligible portion of
$29,000,000 local Capital Improvemen ts. 9 S. 2% of the City' s total share is
represented by non-cash contributions.
Problem Areas:
1.
Butler Stre e t Project - Middle School costing $2 million has been delaying closing of this project (now scheduled for contract in August 1969).
2.
a. Rawson-Washington Project - neighborhood Facilitie s Building costing
$1,000,000, only $150 , 000 of w hich will be an eligible credit.
b.
3.
Park costing $240,000 , $33 , 000 of which will be eligible.
Rockdale -
a.
b.
c.
Elementary school to cost $1. 5 million
Park costing $126 , 000
Two primary schools to cost $1 million each .
"The advent of .the Neighborhood Development Pr9gram has brought to an
end the period du r ing which the City could pledge an improvement and then w ait
until funding became available before completin g it . Under the terms of an NDP
a g r eement , the City must have completed or have under contract all non-cash g r ants in-aid pledged fo r that particular year or contribute the requi r ed amount in cash".
The l ocal s ha r e of p r esent NDP proj e cts a r e f unded fo r 1969 w i t h e xi sting
Public Impr ovem e nts a m oun t i ng to $10 . 6 million (including G e o r g i a Tech II a nd
Bedford-Pine ) .
The 1970 N D P in B edfor d -Pine , M odel C i t i es , E dg ewoo d and Vine City i s
expected to require $2. 7 millio n c as h + $ 2.3 million n on-c as h, both of which are
funded . However the s e include very little activity i n Edgewood and Vine City .
�-5-
If critical slum areas such as Plunkett Town and Lightening are included
in the 1970 NDP execution program, these areas will require a direct cash commitment on the part of the City, sirice no available non-cash credits are currently
planned for these areas. (Note : It is unfortunate that substantial potential credits
for the Techwood and Hunter Street viaducts were permitted to lapse).
·
The report continues:
"The City's problems in trying to develop a comprehensive Neighborhood
Development Program are basically caused by two factors :
1) The lack of current estimates of the cost to complete the total required
activities in each of the project areas.
The development of this information is presently being discussed by the
Planning Department, the Finance Department, the Atlanta Housing Authority and
Model Cities and hopefully the information can be developed before the end of this
year.
2) The fact that the City of Atlanta is approaching the point where we will no
longer be able to finance our Neighborhood Development Program with non-cash
grants -in-aid without supplementing them with a significant amount of cash.
As an example the estimated cost -f or completion of the proposed 5-year
NDP activities in the Model Cities area is $91 million. We presently have
approximately $4 .1 million in eligible non-cash grants -in-aid with proposed (not
funded) improvements totaling approximately $14 million for the period through
1975. This means that if we are to complete a significant portion of the redevelopment and rehabitation of the Model Cities area by the end of 1975 the City will have
had to come forth with between 3 and 4 million dollars a year starting in 1971
either in the form of additional non-cash items such as sewer separations or as
actual cash contributions. This is only the requirement for one NDP area".
.
.
.
Possible sources for additional funds include :
General Funds - already under pres sure .
G e n e r a l Obligation Bonds - app r ov e d f or
i ssue of $4 million annually ,
NOP General Obligation Bond Issue (as a possibility).
New Revenue sources with State approval such as payroll
with certain portions ear marked for NDP.
tax or sal es tax ,
�-6-
- The Chairman commented that this indicates. we should speed up the closing
out of exsisting projects and that new sources of revenue are needed.
Mr. Calloway put in a plea for additional parks in certain areas of the City.
The Executive Director read the financial statement, which was accepted
(filed)._
A preliminary draft budget was p.fesented by the Executive Director. The
Chairman announced the total which he said was quite modest and asked to have
the proposed budget reproduced for distribution at the next meeting.
The Chairman then reminded the members again to submit, in writing, any
suggestions they have for changes or improvements in the Urban Renewal Program,
to the Executive Director for consolidation and consideration at the next general
meeting in September. He stated that the originators of such comments would not
be revealed.
As there was no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 4:00 P.M.
Respectfully submitted,

HUD IMPRE SS ION OF CACUR has been expressed very favorably to your
E xecutive Dir ector by a HUD Official.
He stated that HUD is well ple a sed with the
Citi zens Advisor y Committee for Urban R e n ewa l in it s particip a tion in Urb a n Renewal
and NDP; that its ac ti v iti es and recommenda tion s h ave favor a bly influenced major
decision s in Atlanta I s participation in HUD assisted pro g rams.
H e suggested that
the Citi zens Advisor y Committee for Urban Ren ewal ha ve a n a 1ne change, in order
to get away from the out d ate d limited Urb a n Renewal concept and so that the
Committee could broaden its s cope to include the e ntir e sp ec trum of Community
Improvem ent and suggested th a t consideration be given to changing the n a 1ne to
"Citizens Advisory Committee for Community Improvement" or perhaps s imply
"Citizens Advisory Committee".
Chairman Langdale appointed Executive Committee
member, W. L. Calloway, as Chairman of an Ad Hoc Com1nitte e (additional members
to be add e d) to consider and report upon a name change for CACUR.
CITIZEN PARTICIPATION has been stressed by a local HUD official as an
over ridin g policy in its Federal assisted programs; that HUD insists that machinery
be set up so that minority group views c a n be heard and are considered, but that such
views are not to b e considered or used as a veto.
PROPOSED PUBLIC INFORMATION SYSTEM for Model Cities was briefly
pres ente d at the November 21 meeting by Father Walt e r Denero, a graduate of the
Unive rsity of G eorgia , who has spent_ several month s working in the Mode l Cities a rea.
