construction).
r. Ashley's telephone number is Atlanta,
Area Code 404, 522 ...9491. In y opinion this is one of th
best tracts in the City.

of the City is Mr. Harry Bel:for, Tel. Atl nta, Area Cod

Suggestions from Construction and Design Panel
Housing Resources Committee
William Beers , Chairman, Subcommittee of Panel
W. R. Woffo r ~-
I have s tudied the comments of your Construction and Design Panel relative
to the proposed revision of the City of Atlanta Building Code and furnish the
following information :
See. 101. The term 'building official' ia used in accordance with t:he National
Building Code. It must be remembered that the City of Atl anta Building Code
sets out regulations for construction of structures. Each of the cod
governing oth r phases of construction clearly define th building official's
r ponsibility in that phase . The Building Cod has no authority to des i nat
responsibility for other aetivities; i.e., electrical, plumbing and heating
and ventilating.
Sec . 107.2 Ail innovation of materials nd methods of assembly, when approved
by a nationally recognized tes ting laboratory , are imm diately accepted by the
Building Depar~cnt.
Th Building Cod Advisory Board i not authoriz d as an approv 1 a ncy
for e ch innovation. It does, however, have authority to hear appeals for use
of such approved innovation . If evidenc i furnished to insure th t
ner.,,
approved material and/ or m thod of assembly gives equal afety to met code
requirement. the Board my recommend to the Building Official that the propo l
b accept d.
In addition to thos at the Building Code Advi ory Board hearing
building in p ctor who will in pect the construction (authorized repr
oft e buildi
official) is concerned with r comm ndations of th Bo
is notified of the recommend tion 1n order that he c n effiaiently p
his duties.
It mu t b point d out that ach requ tie con id r
decisio
of th
uildin Code Advisory Board are not to b
prec dent or ne r gulations for building cou.itruction~ th
numbered c~rtif~c te would be of no purpose or value.

This do c ument wiil h a ve for r each i 11:; effect on not only housing

If Atln.nta ia to sta y c ompetitive with other cities i n this v ital

It does not seem to us that adopting the c ode now w i th the idea of

Dear Members:
Executive Group, HRC; and
~t;s1~i~o~iJi~~fosr
Low-Income Housing Coordinating Group
The July meeting of the Executive 9roup, HRC and the Low-Income Housing
Coordip~ting Group will be held July 17, . 1969 at 10:30. A.M. in the main
auditori~m of John O. · Chiles Homes, 435 Ashby Street, S.W. (Parking in
rear. Please do not park in numbered spaces).
As a special featui:efor this meeting we have scheduled a slide and
sound presentation explaining nwhat Is Public Housing". This should be a
very interesting and informative presentation.
Since the last HRC meeting, your Chair man has met with all of the
Panels which had not already been given specific assignments and has
suggested some pertinent items for study by the respective panels and
submission of reports, with recommendations to the HRC, for consideration
and action by the Executive Group as a whole.
It is anticipated that written reports from all Panels will be submitted to the . Executive Group within 30-60 days. Recommendations should
be definite, concise and specifically directed toward constructive positive
action by appropriate agencies.
Since this is an election year, and the future role of the Committee
after January 1 cannot be predicted at this time, the scope of recommendations by the several Panels for action should encompass primarily things
that can be done, or at least initiated, during the remainder of this
calendar year.
We hold hopes for worthwhile accomplishments by all Panels of the
Committee during the remainder of 1969, in the field of housing.
We trust that you will be able to meet with us on July 17. A return
address postal card is enclosed for your convenience in informing us
whether you plan to attend the July 17 meeting.
Sincerely,

MEMORANDUM
TO:
CECIL A. ALE XANDER, Chairman
Housing Resources Committee
MALCOLM D. JONES
Housing Coordinator
Mr. R. Earl Landers
Administrative Assistant
On June 23, at request of Jim Parham, I attented a meeting in
his office with representatives of J.P. Stephens and Company.
Highlights of the meeting were as follows:
1. J.P. Stephens and Company expressed willingness to
cooperate fully with EOA, Cit.y of Atlanta or any other agency in
resolving the housing delima created by the Company's closing the
Exposition Cotton Mills and selling the property for redevelopment.
2. The Company denied lack of information to its people and
non-cooperative spirit in dealing with or answering queries of local
agencies.
3. 2,700 jobs from other firms were offered to the affected
employees after announcement was made of closing the Exposition
Cotton Mills. Some of these were accepted.
4. September 1, is the one and only date announced by the
Company as to when it would like for all of the houses to be
vacated.
5. The Company is still shootilg for this date, but does not
pre clude alternatives if justified.
6. Th e re are still 177 families occupying Company home s in
the a r ea.
7. The Company anticipates that a sizea ble numb er o f t h ese
will vacate during the 4 t h o f J ul y we e k-end.
8.
It was agreed by all concerne d tha t t h er e wi l l probably
be a residual group ( which cou l d be substantia l) of families which
will not move on their own initiative, for various reasons, some
of which may be legitimate and some may not. This is the group
that both EOA and the Company are concerned about and which could
bec ome a problem for the City.
�Page Two
9. It was apparent that no organization or Agency of or
in the City is currently geared to take on the responsibility of
assisting this group, since they are not being displaced by
Governmental Action; and the City has no agency to provide
relocation assistance in such situations. _Solution was sought
without much progress and appeared to be a stalemate.
10. _ I then proposed and so recommend t. ~-· the following, which
was enthusiastically received by all participants at the Conference.
a.
Effective July 15 through August, the Company
provide without cost a room(s) on the premises
to be set up as a relocation assistance office.
This office to be staffed by:
1.
A Company Representative
2.
EOA Representative(s)
3.
Housing Authority Representative(s)
(Relocation Worker(s)
4.
FHA foreclosure homes office be requested
to have informationa l material at this
office and a partime representative.
b.
All remaining families be informed (perhaps by
circular) of the existance of this Relocation
Ass:i:tance Office and encouraged to register their
family composition, ages and sexes, amount the
family is able or willing to pay, whether rental
or purchase housing is desired and preference as
to locations.
c.
The staff to record this information and then
actively attempt to relocate these families
in whatever type of housing that may be available,
particularly by private development.
d.
If some families are unable to pay advance rents,
make utility deposits and or hire drayaq,e to move,
that the staff attempt to get necessary assistance
through any source that may be available, including
welfare and charitable organizations and that
moving of household goods locally if necessary be done
by City owned trucks and Prison labor detail
(as was done once before in vacating a condemnedflooded - portion of Buttermilk Bottoms).
�Page Three
11. It was felt that the Housing Authority could justify its
participation in this venture on the theory that it would be checking
out these families which might be able to qualify for Public Housing,
but if this could not be done legally that the City of Atlanta contract
with the Housing Authority in a nominal amount (perhaps $1,000 only)
to perform this service, in order to make it legal.
I would suggest
that the Housing Authority, the Agency mos~ experienced in Relocation,
be placed in charge of this emergency operation. Both EOA and the
Company agreed to participate in such a project.
12. Unless something of this nature is done timely, I anticipate
that at the last minute the City may become embarrassed and critized
for not having foreseen the difficulty and done something about it.
13. I recommend that procedure, substantially as indicated above,
be effected commencing July 15 and continued until all of the families
have been satisfactorily relocated.
Sincerely,
/"2,~E:

groups, to parlil'ipate in all pha_.:,cs of the rc lat (·d !WO-ass isted renewal and hou si ng programs . The particul ar organizational mc:ins for community in\'Olu~ment is le ft to the di :oc retion of each community, but ihe community must demonstrate in its \lorkal.Jle Progra m ::; ubmi ;;_sion that it pro,·ides clear and direct a-ccess to deci s ion making, relevant and lim(dy information, and ncc·essary technical a:;;.:; islance to parti c ipating groups and individual s in programs
covered.
1. (a) Jdenlify lhe group s parti cipatin g in the 1-Il"D-n::=si s ted programs related lo the Workable Program and in
the community's program to expand the supply of low- and mod era te-income housing.
(1)
Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal (Encl. 1)
There are three major functions of the Citizen's Advisory
Committee for Urban Renewal which are directly related to Atlanta's
Workable Program and to the community's program to expand the supply
of low and moderate income housing:
--~·-- ·- ·- -·
-,
The first · of these three functi6ns, informational services,
constitutes a _dynamic informational cl~aring house operation based on
the receipt of general arid technical information from yarious speakers
at CACUR meetirrgs. This information is then passed on to a large · body
of community organizations and leaders.':-t hrough "The Renewer", the officiaJ
newsletter of CACUR. The July 19.68, newsletter related comments by
Cecil Alexander, Housing Resources Committee Chairman to CACUR· Executive
Committee, pointing out .t hat a "Real Need for Low Income Housing is Seen
in All Sections of Atlanta .• "
(~ontinued on page 18a.)
(b) Describe the type of groups (e.g. civic, neighborhood, hous ing) that are participating, and the constituency represented (e.g. poor, middle-class, ~egro, public hous ing residents).
Re 1 (a) above.
·
(1)
Generally selected from ~rominent leading citizens _in Atlanta,
both White and Negro, in business, education, religious and civic fields.
U. R. Project Committees - appointed by the Housing Authoritl
from residents, property ·owners and businessmen of the area.
PAC Committee - Residents of area, both White and Negro,
elected by citizens of the particular area.
West Erid Businessme~'s Association - Composed of prominent
businessmen in South-West Atlanta (mostly White) i~terested primarily
in the future of the West End Urban Renewal Project.

(Continued from 1. (a) on page 18)
Secondly, CACUR members act a s p r o gra m ana lysts by reviewing
and commenting on many of the existing a nd new progra ms which are of
interest to the Committee and the communi t y as a whole. Feedback
from the Committee to the City of Atlanta, Atlanta Housing Authority
and responsible federal agencies p r ovides an e x cellent opportunity
for these agencies to "feel the pulse" of the community.
The third function of CACUR which is of particular interest here
is citizen participa tio n . This function is overlapping in that it is
the one function universally inhe r ent in all committee efforts. Recently,
during an Aldermanic Planning and Development Committee meeting, one
Alderman pointed out a "stalemate" situation in the citizen p a rticipation
aspects of the NA SH-BANS (Vine City) nei g hborhood. The CACUR Director
volunteered the services of CACUR to help wi t h t hat probJem by establishing an associate advisory committee, as had been done in t wo past u r b a n
ren·e wal projectsa Since that time, CACUR members, especially President ·
Noah Langdale, Jr., have worked diligently to contribute to the develop ment of the PAC Committee in Vine City. These are but three major
functions of CACUR producing a host of activit i es related to the effective planning and development of a Work able Program and public and private
housing program aimed at creating a viable community.

Urban Observatory
The January 1, 1969 issue of the Atlanta Journal referred to the
Urban Observatory with headline reading"Atlanta: aiggest College Lab
in Georgia". That headline succinctly sums up the concept of the Urban
Observatory. The basic purpose of the Urban Observatory in Atlanta is
(Continued on page 18b.)
- 18a-
1
�(Continued from 1. (a) on page 18a.)
to liberate the academic resources of the city so that they may study
and analyze urban problems in such a way that their work can be of
direct value to the public officials of the metropolitan area. The
Observatory is designed to foster a partnership between the public
officials of the metropolitan area, especially the Mayor of Atlanta,
and local colleges and universities. This kind of a partnership can
provide a tremendous potential to meet the serious problems of Atlanta
with innovative and practical approaches to solutions. The guidance
for the Urban Observatory will come from an advisory council which is
made up of public officials representing the various governments in
the metropolitan area.
This council will be especially responsible
for the progress of the Observatory. The two major administrative
positions in the Observatory organization consist of the Director of
the Urban Observatory to be housed in the Urban Life Department at
Georgia State College, and City Urban Observatory Coordinator to be
hous.ed in the office of the Mayor of Atlanta.
One of the basic
functional aspects of the Urban Observatory concept is research. Two
priority research and development programs for the Observatory during
its first year of operation will be housin g and citizen participation
in community projects.
It was the opinion of those responsible for
the operation of the Observatories, located in six cities throughout
the United States, that citizen participation is a key issue in the
development of sound co~munity rehabilitation programs. The research
for the Observatory will be conducted by the faculties of the participating schools.
Inter-university research teams, interdisciplinary in
makeup, will use dynamic data banks to facilitate and expedite their
research. The Observatory concept may well be the key to unlock that
door which has too long held back insights into the solution of major
urban problems.

Mass meetings called of residents and property owners of
areas affected and applicable programs are explained. Nominating
committees are usually appointed and subsequent meetings held to _
elect representatives.
In so~e in~tatices, such as Model Cities,
regular conventi·ons h~ve b~en held.
In other areas for example,
Vine City, coordination and progress has been virtually impossible
until most recently, due to disruptive practices of habitual
protestors, some of whom reside outside the area, but who have
deliberately tried to disrupt all meetings and pr~hibit any progress •.

affected and. invit-ing· ·their ideas, suggestions and active participation.
Typical example ot efforts being made to provide information ~nd
technical ass>i.stance through the local PAC ·orgranization is· illustrated
in attached pamphlets, "Edgewood in Jt'c tion" and 0 Bedford-Pine Community
Newsletter" (Encl. 6). Typical efforts -being made to inform other
interested groups on Urban Renewal, through special tours and
presentations, is illu~trated by attached communication, (En6i. 7) •
In addition, the fu~l membership of the Citizens Advisory
Commi tte·e · for Urban Renewal meets quarterly and the Executive Cammi ttee

4. Describe the nature and range of issues relating to the applicable programs with which particip:iting groups

All phases and activites of Model Cities, with special effort•
not to make decisions on any phase of the numerous activities, without
first presenting the matters to neighborhood committees and getting
·
action of the Executive Board. This is highly democratic but is time
consuming a nd does not promote speed and efficiency in accomplishment.

for citizen participation in the various elements of Urban Renewal.
(Continued from 4. on page 20)
In Urban Rene wal Projects and NDP areas, recommendations of
local representative groups are habitually sought and considered
in most policy determinations.
In zoning matters pertaining to many HUD assisted programs
and projects the majority voice of citizens of the area is normally
adhered to, so much so that rezoning to accomodate HUD assisted
housing projects has been severly curtailed, to the extent of
seriously threatening a ccomplishments of the low income housing
program, to meet current and future needs.

(a) The requirement in HUD's letter of October 15, 1968,
to Mayor Allen indicating certain deficiencies for cor rectio n during
the recertification period , under Citiz en Participation, that

MALCOLM D. JONES
Housing Coordinator
Dear Members, Housing Resources Committee; and
Low-income Housing Coordinating Group:
I wish to express my appreciation to you for the good attendance
and participation at the Housing Resources Committee reorganization
meeting on May 8, at which Mayor Allen honored us by his presence
and gave us his views on some new approaches for activities of the
Committee during the remainder of 1969.
Our next meeting will be held Thursday, June 12, in Committee
Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall at 10:30 A.M.
Special tasks have already been assigned to three of our working
Panels and I anticipate making specific assignments to the remaining
Panels at our June meeting.
The national trend toward production of low-income housing in
the near future, as currently being emphasized by the Nixon
Administration, is mass production of prefabricated or modular housing
to reduce the costs of components and the overall structure, as well
as cut down on construction time.
I hope that each of you will keep Atlanta's future housing needs
in the forefront of your day- to-day activities and deliberations and
will not hesitate to advise your Panel Chairman or myself of a ny
thoughts or ideas which you may have for improving our housing program
and ways and means for reducing costs to the ultimate consumer.
Please circle June 12 on your calendar and plan to attend and
participate in discussion with us on that date and give us the
benefit of your ideas.
A self-addressed return postal card is enclosed for your
convenience in letting us know whether you plan to attend.
Sincerely,
Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman

HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE
Report
COMPLAINT
On April 18, Mr. Albert N. Cowan made the following complaint
to this office.
His brother, Robert H. Cowan, of Jacksonville, Florida, owns
a residential structure (Cowan Family .Home) located at 1043 Stewart
Avenue,
s.w.,
in the Adair Park portion of Model Cities area; that
Robert H. Cowan was required by the City of Atlanta (Building Department Housing Code Division) during 1967 to bring this structure up to
Housing Code standards and spent $6,600 on the project; that the
work was done by a Mr. G. J. Carruth, a White Minister, who also
professed to be a Contractor.
Mr. Cowan continued that recently bis brother was called into
the Housing Authority Reha bilitation Office at 530 McDaniel Street ,
S.W. and told that additional work needs to be done on his house
which will cost an additional estimated $7, 000; that he may obtain
a 3% direct Federal loan with up to a 20-year mortgage and has 60
days in which to comply.
Mr . Albert Cowan also said that his brother is 76 years old and
does not want to place a new 20-year mortgage on this property, even
if it is at 3% interest.
(Estimated cost is approximately $5.55
per. month, per $1,000 ) ; that he lets his sister, Miss Pearl Cowan,
live there free and Miss Pearl Cowan rents rooms (I understand as
a livelihood which is her principal source of income and support);
that the house is liveable and basically sound; that no major damage
or vandalism has occurred to the property since it was brought up
�-2-
to Housing Code standards by the City in 1967; that the owner,
Robert H. Cowan, is willing to make additional minor repairs
occassioned by fair, wear and tear during the past 2 years, but does
not feel that he should be required to spend now an additional
$7,000, after having spent $6,600 in 1967 to meet City requirements,
which were designated, inspected and work accepted by the City's
official representatives.
FINDINGS
Check with the Housing Code Division reveals that on February
9, 1967, a Housing Code case was initiated against this property in
connection with a house-by-house inspection in a designated concentrated Housing Code Enforcement area; that a building permit for
repair of this structure was taken out 4-24-67 by G. J. Carruth,
Contractor, in amount of $4,100; that the work was complied 6-9-67
by the Housing Code Division and certificate issued for 3 units, with
existing facilities (copy of Housing Code record attached, Encl. 1).
Mr. Cowan maintains that his brother paid $6,600 to the contractor
and presumes that the extra $2,500 above permit cost was the contractor's
profit .
He also states that the contractor procured floor tile for
one of the rooms but did not install it, which he promised to do
later, but never did.
Check with the Housing Authority Rehabilitation Office for Model
Cities at 530 McDaniel Street,
s.w.,
reveals that on Apr il 22, 1969,
that office issued Mr. Robe rt H. Cowan an itemized list of "Violations"
which also stated that all work to be done shall comply with
specifications set forth in "Invitations to Bid" and .. Minimum Property
Standards for Urban Renewal Rehabilitation" and that the property be
reduced to two units (copy attached, Enclo 2).
�-3The Housing Authority Inspector's estimate of the cost of this
work was originally $7,000 but was later reduced to $6,000 as result
of conference between the owner and inspector.
This is essentially what has happened:
A.
Model Cities has designated this portion of the
Adair Park area for rehabilitation in 1969,
although it was included in a concentrated Housing
Code Enforcement program conducted in the
same area on a house-by-house basis in 1967.
B.
Model Cities has accepted Urban Renewal
Project Rehabil::itation Standards, essentially
as used in West End, i.e., "Property
Rehabilitation Standards, Model Cities Urban
Renewal Redevelopment Area", based on HUD
Pamphl e t PG-50, " Rehabilitation Guide for
Res idential Pr operties ".
These Urban Renewal
Rehabilitation standa r ds wer e prepared by the HUD
Regional Sta f f .
C.
The HUD Gu i d e is r e a sonable a nd p ermits
consid er able f lexibility in local applic at ion.
Howev er, the st a nd ard s p r epar ed by the Housing
Authority and appr oved by HUD includ e

considerable local interpretation of the HUD
Guide and, as was explained to me by the
Housing Authority Rehabilitation Inspector,
are intended to essentially
�-4rebuild properties, rather than just repair
them, and is designed to place them in
essentially new house condition, presumably
free from additional maintena,n ce for the next
15 years, thus placing them in . a category very
similar to housing rebuilt for resale under the
FHA 221 (h) program.
D.
No consideration has been given to the City's
previous rehabilitation efforts in this area
under the Housing Code.
Zoning requirements
for the area have been taken literally from
the Zoning Map, with no allowances made for
previously approved use of specific structures.
E.
No consideration is given to legal non-conforming uses in the area, authorized by the Zoning
Ordinance.
F.
Although most of the Model Cities' requirements
are reasonable and would be desirable if no
other improvement efforts bad been made on the
property recently, some of the requirements
however appear impractical, particularly for
rental property.
Examples in this particular
case are:
1.
Requiring resanding and refinishing
of perfectly solid wooden floors throughout.
2.
Removal of good fencing, desired to be
retained by the owner as a means of protection.
�-53.
Removal of serviceable electric switch
in hallway entrance to the bathroom and
re-installing same switch inside the
bathroom.
COMMENT
The Model Cities Rehabilitation Standards as such, are unenforceable.
If owners fail to comply voluntarily , the Housing Authority
has no other course open than to turn the case over tb the City to
effect compliance.
At this point (and this is quite important) the
City will require, and the Courts will enforce, only complicance with
the City of Atlanta's Housing Code.
This is one reason why on October 18, 1968, in Memorandum to
Mayor Allen I recommended:
"That rehabilitation in the Model Cities area
be accomplished
by the City, rather than by the Housing Authority, utilizing both
the City and Housing Authority Inspectors.
This is believed to be
the most feasible procedure in view of the extent of current trained
staffs available and should produce the fastest results • • • •

That the Hous.ng Code standards be recommended for use as the
Rehabil i tation Standards in the Model Cities area
e

•"
Also o n October 31 , 1968, in Memorandum to the Director of Model
Cities , I s t a ted:
"Also, I feel v er y s t r o ng ly t h at o ne s et o f r ehabi lit at ion
standards only f o r t he entire Mode l Cities shou l d b e es t ablished for
execution by both the Housing Authority and the Ci ty; and that initial
notices to property owners to rehabilitate their dwellings to meet
�-6-
required standards should be issued in the name of the City of Atlanta,
regardless of who or under whose jurisdiction the actual processing
and execution is accomplished.
This is to provide the legal require-
ments necessary to invoke the Police Powers of the City, if necessary,
at a later date to insure compliance.
This -will avoid encountering
extensive time delays later and costly repetition of efforts in
processing rehabilitation notices originally issued by the Housing
Authority Inspectors, but which may eventually have to be turned over
to the City to enforce in order
to obtain compliance
••••"
Comparison of Federal Pamphlet PG-50 "Rehabilitation Guide for
Residential Properties" and the City Housing Code standards reveals
that they are quite similar and not sufficiently far apart to justify
two sets of standards for rehabilitation of residential properties
within the same area, simultaneous or in quick succession, as in this
instance. ·
However, two sets of standards do currently exist and probably
won't be changed now, in view of HUD's · already approval of the Urban
Renewal.Rehabilitation standards.
In general, little fault can be
found with the Urban Renewal Rehabilitation requirements, and the
procedure for effecting them provides assistance and controls which
are definitely helpful.
See'General Conditions - Bids and Proposal -
Construction Contract" (Encl. 3).
Therefore adoption of proposed
procedure by the City in the Model Cities area appears appropriate and
desirable, in fairness to . property owners, while at the same time
attempting to meet the objectives of Model Cities for improvements
" above and beyond" required Housing Code standards.
�-7-
EFFECTS AND RE SULTS
A tour of the Adair Park Neighborhood (Stewart Avenue West),
where the City Housing Code was enforced on a house-by-house basis
just t wo years ago, reveals a very neat an~ well-kept neighborhood.
With fe w exceptions, this area is definitely a credit to the Housing
Code Enforcement efforts and to the City of Atlanta in general.
If
all of Atlanta was in as good condition of maintenance and general
up-keep as this area is now, there would be no problem.
There are
probably several hundred decent, safe and sanitary residential
structures in this general area in good sound livable condition that
are, or will be, effected in a very similar manner to Mr. Cowan's
property.
Wi t h all of the much worse housing in so many portions o f the
Mod el Ci ties area, which badly needs r ehabili t a t ion, i t is unfor t u n at e
that a p o r t i o n o f this exc el lent a re a whic h was jus t brought u p t o
Housing Code requirements wi thin t he p a st tw o years, h a s been selec ted
for Urban Renewal Rehabili t ati o n during 1 969.
This see ms a misuse
of effort and waste of money, both p ri v a t e a nd pub l i c .
I f the City is to have the support of property owners in a n y
ne i ghbor hood, and this it must have for suc c ess of rehabilitation
eff o rts , thes e people, their pocketbooks and pre vious improvement
efforts must be g iv en app ropr iat e consideration .
PROPOSED PROCEDURE
A.
That owners in the Model Cities rehabilitation areas be
informed of Model Cities s t andards and provided with
lists of specific improv ements needed to meet these
standards.
Also that they be advised of the special
benefits and free services such as 3% interest,
20- year mortgage rehabilitation
�-8-
loan, free architectural advice, competent direct
supervision over work being done and -withholding
payment to the contractors until work has been
completed and accepted as satisfactory; and to offer
these benefits to the owners if they wish to take
idvantage of them.
B.
At the same time however, inform the owners that
all of these improvements, although desirable, are
not mandatory or enforceable, but that the Housing
Code requirements are.
C.
Then give each owner .the opportunity to decide which
course he desires to follow.
Unless this is done openingly and above board, many property owners,
through ignorance of the law and or fear of getting entangled with
City Hall, will commit themselves to larger expenditures than are
necessary or that they desire or are financially able to carry out,
thus envoking actual hardship.
While the rebuilding concept, as opposed to repair, is costly
to the property owners in Adair Park, which is basically a substantial
upper-middle cla ss neighborhood where most of the structures are
basically sound and well-kept, the current policy will be particularly
costly and difficult for the less affluent property owners in areas
such as Summerhill , Mechanicsvi lle and Pittsburgh where the structures
are poorer built initially and in much worse state of maintenance.
This proposed procedure has been discussed with, and would have
the support of, the Chief Housing Code Inspector, Building Department
and the Supervisor, Housing Authority, Model Cities Rehabilitation
�-9-
Office, 530 McDaniel Street, S.W.
Unless procedure substantially as indicated above is adopted,
the entire rehabilitation effort in the Model Cities area is very
l~kely to eventually result as a serious detriment to success of the
program and to the goodwill and support of the housing improvement
programs of the City in general and of Model Cities area in particular.
RECOMMENDATION
Therefore, I recommend and strongly urge that the above indicated
procedure be adopted in this particular case and in similar situations
in all NDP areas, in fairness and justice to all concerned.

Reorganizational Meeting
Housing Resources Committee
May 8, 1969
The Reorganizational Meeting o~ the Housing Resources Committee
was held at 10:00 A.M., Thursday, May 8, 1969, in Committee Room 2,
Second Floor, City Hall. Members of the Low-Income Housing
Coordinating Group was also invited.
Invitational notices, l ist of those invited, with attendance
of members and guests indicated, and other related documents are
attached to the file copy only of these minutes.
Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by greeting the new
members and thanking all the members for attending t h e meeting.
The Chairman then introduced Mayor Allen.
Mayor Allen opened his r e mark s b y congratulating the Committee
on its many accomplishments in eliminating slums in Atlanta and
providing better housing conditions. He praised recent accomplishments in Public Housing and stated that the City of Atlanta requires
more Public Housing to meet the needs of its lowest income people.
Mayor Allen stated that more a nd more o f the City's slums are
b e ing clea r ed away, but there are still too many slum pockets left
ove r the Ci ty, a nd that the standards ·o f the Housing Code are be i ng
constantly increased. He said that he would like to see for every
new housing development, a slum pocket in the City b e cleared
a way. He stated that the Federal Government is helping with the
pr ob l em of hous ing, beca use the City does not h a ve enough revenue
t o support or f ina nce the se projects. Ma yor Allen particula r ly
pra i sed the Housi ng Authori ty for i ts a s s ist a nce , coopera t i on and
abi lity t o cope wi t h the low-income hous i ng situa t i on in Atla nt a .
Ma yor Alle n a lso stated that so far this year the Building
Permits (pr i "Qlri ly f or I ndus tr ia l a nd Commeric a l c ons truct i o n ) ha ve
inc r e a sed about 50% above l as t yea r, wh ich was a record year .
Ma yor Alle n t hen we nt on t o expl a in t he l e t t er he wr ot e to
Chair man Alexander on April 3 , 1969, giving new dir ection to the
Ho using Resources Commit tee.
Mayo r Allen s t ated that severa l chang es h ave occ urred in
leg i slation , whic h are the Model Ci ties Ac t o f 1 9 66 , the Fair
Housing Act of 1966 and the Housing Act of 1968 that have c hanged
the housi ng goa ls and needs o f t he Ci ty of Atlant a.
He then stated t h a t since t he Housing Besources Committee
has asked his offic e f o r new ins t ruc t ions , he suggested that the
following areas be investigated and action initiated during 196 9:
�Page 2
1.
The Planni ng Department has b een i nstructed
by the Planning and Devel opment Committee o f
the Boar d o f Ald e rmen t o c onduct a total review
~nd evaluation of our housing ef~ o rts to date ,
along with a redefinition o f total hous ing
needs by location, type, size and rentals and
sa les price ranges .
Mayor hllen said th a t the HRC should be involved in this matter
and assist the Pla nn i ng Department in the devel opment of the scope
of this study and in obtai ning political acceptability and support .
At present a j o int Atlanta-Fult o n County Housing study is being
p r oposed.
2.
Eri c Hi ll and bs sociates has just c ompleted
i ts r eport for the Model Ne i ghbo r hood Pr og ram .
This report contains muc h f ood f or thought in
the area o f lowering the costs of low-income
housing.
HRC sh o uld ta k e the i nitiative and
expl o r e ways and means t o implement those
pertinent recommendati ons deeoed feasible on
a city-wide bas i s .
3.
Conv e n tional urban r enewal pr o jects, the
Neighb o rh ood Development Pr o gram a nd Model
Cities Pr ogram can provide much needed land f o r
housing de v elopme nt and impr o v ement purposes.
In this r ega rd the HRC can a ss u me a v e ry
ir.ipo rtan t r ole.
4.
Ou ts id e o f the boundaries o f conventiona l
urban renewal projects, the Ne ighborhood
Dev elopment Pr o gram and Model Cities Pr og ram,
the pr oc urer.ient and d evelopment o f sites fo r
housing can best be expected to c ome along by
themse l ves because o f the momentum g enerat ed
in the in i tial two years.
If there is a need
for prodding here, it is in the direction of
placing greater emphasis in outlying are~s of
the City on single-fami ly, p ubli c housing and
higher density public h o using in close proximity
to the central core of the C i ty.
HR C can be
most helpful in providing this type of direc tion
to city de v elopment , and
5.
I n general , the new housing units which have
been developed were intended as replacement
housing for slum properties . Yet, slums
still exist.
In the future , HRC should seek
to de v ise and implement ways and means through
which one slum structure would be deraolished
�•
Page 3
for each new low-cost housing unit created.
Unless this is done i mmediately, the same
slums will be with us indefi nitely.
_Mayor Allen stated that low-income housing usually impr oves
the neighborhood after it has bee n developed.
He stated that he
does not believe that large trac_ts of land are going to l;)e zoned
this year (beca u se of impending po lit ical elections) in hesidential
areas for low-income housing.
Probably the land sur rounding
already existing hou sing developments can be expanded and some
new developments, perhaps in the outly ing area s.
Mr ~ Alexander agreed with Mayor Allen on the elimination of
slums in the At la nta area and emphasized the importance of the
Mayor's rol e in the overall program .
Mr . Alexander then commented on the Broad Functions set up
for the Committee (copies distributed and with file copy only of
these mnutes).
He explained the functions of the Business
P3rticipati o n and Finance P anel, Construction and Design Panel ;
the newly organized Housing Locations, newly organ ized Housing
Re study, Legal, newly o rganized r,~oderate and Upper Inc ome Kn Town Housing , Public Relati o ns 2nd Social Aspects Panels o f the
Comm i ttee.
At this point, Mr . Archer D. Smith , III , Chairman of the
Legal Panel , asked Mayor .!Hlen if his new direction letter to
the Chairman meant that the Housing Resources Committee should
discontinue its previous efforts in promoting sites for low and
medium income housing and assisting develop~r8 by supporting
rezoning of certain proposed tracts considered appr opriate for
this purpose.
Mayor Allen responded that he did not intend to restrict
activities of the HRC in any of its efforts in providing lowincome housing; that his letter to Mr. Alexander was intended
to re-define and provide direction for new additional efforts
by the Committee.
Mr. Alexander then intr od uced Mr . M. B. Satterfield, retiring
Executive Direct o r of the Housing Authority .
He praised Mr.
Satterfield for his excellent contribution to the housing situation
