Item: Proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970.

Mr. Howard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Auth-
ority, outlined Atlanta's proposed Neighborhood Development Program for 1970.
The Program contains eight neighborhoods:


GA. Tech Ii

Model Cities


Vine City
“GA. State *New Areas

Maps and statistical summary indicating the proposed action program in in-
dividual areas was discussed. In summary, the 1970 NDP Program proposes the
acquisition of 922 parcels of land, relocation of 1392 families and indiv-
iduals, demolition of 922 structures, rehabilitation of 830 structures and
disposition of 116 acres of land.

As a housing resource for families displaced in the 1970 program, the Hous-
ing Authority will complets and have ready for occupancy 2033 public housing
units and 650 dwelling units for families of low and moderate income.

The gross project cost of the 1970 NDP program is 27.l, million dollars. The
federal capital grant requested is 20.7 million, the local share is 8.5
million, 7.3 million includes non-cash grants-in-aid to be provided by the
City and 1.2 million in cash tojbe provided by the Board of Regents. Fol-
lowing HUD approval of addition section 112 credits of 1.1 million dollars,
the cash required by the Board of Regents will be reduced to $165,880.

On September 23, 1969, the Department of Housing and Urban Development ad-
vised the Atlanta Housing Authority that $2,000,000 has been established
as the amount available for the 1970 activity of the six Neighborhood De-
velopment Programs now underway in Region III. This represents 5.9% of
the federal capital grant funds available in the Region for 1969.

The Regional office of HUD will allocats the available funds for 1970 NDP
activities on the basis of each City's needs, its record of performance,
and its ability to postpone some activities until a subsequent year.
