Dear Mr. Alexander: .
This letter is to appoint you to the Atlanta panel" formed by the
Academy to function with respect to our research contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. . Enclosure 11 A11 is? copy of the
HUD announcement regarding this project.
The contract calls for us to study the critical decisional and
administrative aspects, primarily from the local point of view, of four HUDassisted urban programs: turnkey housing, inner-city open space, basic sewer
and water facilities grants, and non-profit sponsored new housing under Section 22l(d)(3)--a replacement for study of 22l(h). These programs will be
analysed from point of origin to point of impact in six (or seven) cities,
_·with Atlanta serving as the pilot study.
The . project will tie in with related HUD contracts awarded to the
National League of Cities to evolve a ~ystem of urban observatories (in addition to Atlanta, four other designated observatory cities are among those
cities which we have recommended to HUD for inclusion in our study), and to
Rutgers University to study ways of achieving a more effective state role in
· urban programs.
·
~
\
Dr. Morris W. Collins, Jr., Director of the Institute of Government,
University of Georgia, is convenor of the Atlanta panel. Other panelists are
listed on Enclosure nB 11 • One or two additional members may be appointed.

Dear Cecil:
On November 5, ·1966, the Moyor_'s Conference on Housing kicked off a badly ne·eded
program to stimulate the development of low and mode rate income housing in the Ci ty
of Atlanta. Our goals were ·based on the relocation needs of city reside nts who were
to be rehoused as a result of code e_nforcement, urban renewal, highway construction
and oth ~:- gove rnme ntal actions.
The Housing Resources Committee accepted the ·progrom's challenge of pushing the
development of 9,800 units during 1967 and 1968, and 16,800 units over the five
year period, 1967-1971. Much credit is due the HRC for the mome ntum it hos ge nerated
in stimulating the construction and planning of enough additional units to gre atly
re li-eve our immediote housing heeds. Your se cond annual mee ting re port ce rtainly contained
an optimistic analysis of the first two years of the program, as it clearly showed that
we are ahead of our projected goals.
But, hove our goals and needs, in fact, changed?
Since ·o ur housi ng program was be gun, se ve ral changes hav·e occurred which warran t
such a question and further examination. Three ve ry obvious change s in legislation have
been the Mode l Citie s Act of 1966, th e Fair Housing Act of 1968, and the Housing Act
of 1968. Pe rhaps othe r areas could be cite d, but e ach has probably had a conside rabl e
impact and bea ring on our original housing goals.
In that the Housing Resources Committee has asked this office for new instructions,
it is sugge sted that the following area s be investigated and action initiated during 1969:

I. The Planning Department has been instructed by th~ Planning and
Development Committee to conduct a total review and evaluation
of our housing efforts to date, along with a redefinition of total
housing needs by location, type, size and rentals and sales price
'
.
ranges.
HRC should be involved in th is matter and assist the Planning
Department in the development of the scope of this study and in
- - - - -obtaining · political acceptability and support. At present a
joint Atlanta - Fulton County housing study is being proposed.
Such a study should prove to be extremely beneficial to the next
- - administration.
2. Eric Hill and Associates has just completed its report for the
Model Neighborhood Program. This report contains much food for ·
thought in the area of lowering the costs of low-cost housing.
HRC should take the initiative ·and explore ways and means to
implement those pertinent recommend~tions deemed feasible on a
city-wide basis.
3. Conventional urban ·renewal projects, the Neighborhood Development
Program (ND P), and Model Cities Program can provide much needed
land for housing development and improvement purposes. In this
regard HRC can assume a very import~nt role.
· a. Explore alternative source.s of revenue for funding the
local share of the above programs and projects, and
b. Support the need to include highly critical areas-, such as
Plunkettown and Lightning, in the 1970 ND P application for
execution · purposes.
4. Outside of the boundaries of conventional urban renewal projects, the
Neighborhood Development Program and Mode I Cities Program, the
p'r ocurement and development of sites for housing can best be expected
- to come along by themselves because of the momentum generated in the
initial two years. If there is a need fo~ prodding here, it is in the direction
'of placing greater emphasis in outlying areas of the city on single-family
public housing and higher density public housing in close proximity to the
central core of the city. HRC can be most helpful in providing this type
of direction to city development, and

5. In 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 devise
end implement ways and means ..through which one slum ~tructure
would be demolished for each new low-cost housing unit created.
Unless this is done immediately, the same slums will be with us
indefinitely.
I would hope that the Housing Resources Committee would delve into these
ore as as soon as possible. As you are we II aware, I w ii I not seek another term
as Mayor. I would, therefore, like to take this opportunity to thank each of
you individually and collectively for the tremendous public service you have
rendered and for your continued support during 1969.
Sincerely yours,
M~en, Jr.

The Chairman commented on recent press release by HUD announcing selection
of eight cities across the nation as prototype housing sites for 11 0peratio_n Breakthrough".
The selection did not include Atlanta, which had file-cl an application with HUD, but did
include Macon and Memphis.
�Page Two

of the School of Archite cture who had undertaken a d e sign project for low-income
housing development of a two block are a. in Mode-1 Cities, under Oper a tion Breakthrough.
Three dimensional models of their proposals were on display in the B a llroom and made
a very interesting feature of the meeting and valuable contribution to the meeting .
At the conclusion of Mr. Clarke's remarks, Mr. Grady F. Edwards, Vice
President , Marketing, Atlanta Gas Light Co·mpany, made a presentation of a facsimile
of an automatic gass char-grille awarded by the Gas Light Company (including complete
ins_tallation) to the two Georgia Tech Architectur a l students d e clar e d winners of the

These were George Young and Jay Harp. P.rofessor Joseph
Smith of the School of Architecture 'of Georgia Tech, who sponsored the project, was
also present and was recognized.
The Chairm a n then called on Mr, Dan E. Sweat, Chief Administr a tive Officer
of the Mayor I s Office, for comments .
Mr. Sweat recalled the creation of the Housing Resources Committee at the
Mayor's Housing Conferenc_e , November 15, 196 6 , the need for creating such a
Committee to promote and coordina te local efforts in the low -incom e housing fi e ld and

�MINUTES
Housing Resources Committee
Septern.ber 4, 1969
The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee was
held 3:00 - 5:00 P. M., Thursday, September 4, 1969, in Committee Room 2,
Second Floor, City Hall.
This meeting was devoted exclusively to responses by candidates for
Mayor to questions posed by members of the HRC pertaining to the respective
candidates' position on housing. Invitations to candidates were issued by the
Public Relations Panel, HRC, which sponsored the meeting.
The scheduling of time of appearance, advance press releases and
letters of appreciation to candidates after their appearance were all handled by
the Chairman, Public Relations Panel. Copies of these, together with invitational
notice, to HRC members, Agenda, with time indicated for each Candidate (Encl. 1)
and other related documents are attached to the file copy of these minutes.
Chairman C ecil Alexander was out of town and could not attend the
meeting, so Mr. Richard Harvey, Chairman of the Public Relations Panel conducted
the meeting.
Chairmen of the respective Panels prepared and sent questions to the
Housing Resources Committee O ffice a week before the meeting in order that the
questions could be provided each Candidate in advance so that the Committee
would receive more comprehensive answers. Those questions were mailed to
the respective candidates on August 29, 1969. Copies of the questions are attached
to these minutes (Encl. 2).
Each Candidate was given 10 minutes to express his views on housing,
and a 10 minute question and answer period.
During the question and answer phase, the Chairmen of the respective
Panels asked the Candidates questions pertaining to their particular Panel interests.
All Candidates were present except Mrs. Linda Jenness, who was out
of town that day. Mr. John Vatava represented Mrs. Jenness.
Formal opening statements by candidates Jenness and Mas sell were
submitted to the HRC and are attached to the file copy only of the minutes of this
meeting.

Alderman Millican' s opening statement attempted answers to as many
of the written questions prepared by the respective Panels, as time would permit.
Alderman Cook and Mr. Tate spoke from notes only and submitted no prepared
opening statements for the record.
Questions asked respective candidate_s were in general selected from lists
previously submitted to them and notes were taken by Panel Chairmen on questions
asked. Replies were so numerous and involved and stenographic assistance so
limited as to preclude recording in the minutes of specific questions asked and
answers given. In general, however, all candidates with the exception of Mrs.
Jenness (represented by spokesman) appeared to be sympathetic with the low and
moderate income housing program and offered to assist where practicable. From
this standpoint, it is apparent that the meeting was beneficial and worthwhile.
Newspaper comment on the meeting is attached to the file copy of the
minutes.
The meeting was adjourned at 5:00 P. M.
Respectfully submitted,

Questions by Housing Locations Panel
Housing Resources Committee
1.
(a)
Would you support prompt mutual cooperation and assistance
of public bodies in the Atlanta Metropolitan area in providing
adequate sites for low-income housing, including Public
Housing, preferably in small developments not exceeding
200-300 units each, distributed throughout the Atlanta
Metropolitan area and insofar as feasible, in reasonable
proximity to sources of employment for the occupants?
{b)
How would you propose going about getting this done?
2. Would you support a comprehensive review and rezoning of the
entire City of Atlanta to be made as soon as possible to meet
the constantly expanding needs of the City?
3. What is your feeling about establishing a separate apartment
zoning category for Federal assisted multi-family housing
developments ?
4. Would you advocate that the Housing Authority of the City
of Atlanta actively seek appropriate locations, both within
and outside the City Limits of Atla nta, with view to establishment and operation of Public Housing developments thereon
in groups of not to exceed 200-300 units each?

Questions by Construction and Design Panel
Housing Resources Co_m mittee
To All Candiates:
1. Do you favor and will work toward a single Building Inspector
with authority over all building trade inspectors? Will you
insist upon this being carried out?
2. Will you support the effort to get low and medium housing
built in the neighboring suburba n areas?
3. Would you encourage the Building Inspector to give positive
consideration to innovations?
4. Would you favor an Appeals Board be given a uthority to
override decisions of the Building Inspector?
, ·.-,
�Questions by Legal Panel
Housing Resources Committee
1.
Whether or not the entire City should be rezoned, and if so, whether they would
employ the 1983 Land Use Plan as their basic guide?
2.
Their position on package zoning, i.e., disbursing public housing units throughout all quadrants of the City, and, in particular, whether each candidate would
favor public housing in the ward in which they presently reside, if land could be
located that was feasible in cost, and if the requisite community facilities were
available?
3.
Should the City undertake to construct public housing units with public funds to
provide for its poor, and do they feel that private enterprise is capable and
willing to meet this need, should the City not continue the fostering of public
housing?
4.
Does a public housing unit of the caliber of the John 0. Chiles Project on Ashby
Street lower or improve pr'?perty values and the standards of the community, if it
were placed in (a) a slum neighborhood; (b) a lower middle class neighborhood;
(c) a middle class neighborhood; (d) an upper class neighborhood?
5.
Do you feel that the Atlanta School Bo a rd should be given the right, and should
exercise the right, to lease school buildings from a private developer in order
to provide the r e quisit e community facilities in a large public housing project,
as opposed to the present system of having to acquire the land in fee simple
before being able to use it for school purposes?
6.
Do you feel that the present Housing Resources Committee, consisting of one
staff man, one secretary, with the Chairman and the rest of the Committee
being engaged in private enterprise, should be abolished, expanded, or
diminished?
7.
What is you:v position on the proposal tha t a separate housing department be
created for the City with a department head holding equal dignity with other
departments, a full time staff, and sufficiert secretarial assistance?
8.
What would be your position on a specific grievance procedure relative to
eviction and discipline in Atlanta Housing Authority projects?

Questions by the Social Aspects Panel
Housing Resources Committee
To All Candiates:
1,
Do you see a need for emergency housing in Atlanta; and if
so, do you see this as a responsibility of City Government?
2, In what positive ways would you work to insure Fair Housing
in Atlanta?
3, Since Low-income Housing units are intended as replacements
. for slum dwellings, but yet slums still exist; what ideas do


you have for eventually eliminating slum pockets in Atlanta?


4. How can the Mayor's Office work with the Atlanta Housing
Authority to obtain better social services for families and
senior citizens in Public Housing?

�MODERATE AND UPPER INCOME IN-TOWN HOUSING
Housing Resources Committee
POSSIBLE QUESTIO:--JS COWERNING Ha.JSING DEVELOPt-ENT IN ATLJINTA
I.
t-llch enphasis, effort and expense has been placed on
low-incorre housing developnent in /!Jrerica's larger cities
and, as you know, Atlanta is a leader in this field.
How-
ever, many people arc concerned that, unless sone comparable errphasis is placed on the problem of middle to upper
incon-e housing, the city will eventually be inhabited primarily by the poor.
What are your views as to what generally
nust be done to hot only stem the flow of middle to upper
income groups out of the city, but also to attract those who
have already left to return?
II.
Many people feel that it would be senseless to initiate any
large scale housing program designed to encourage middle to
upper incorre groups to renain in the city until the crirre
problem in Atlanta is alleviated.
Do you feel that this is
indeed a significant factor in this problem and if so, what
do you think generally rrust be done about it?

�Questions by Public Relations Panel
Housing Resources Committee
1.
What is your attitude toward low-income housing?
2.
What do you see as the future for low-income housing in the
Atlanta area?
3.
What steps should be taken, if any, to reconcile the management
points of view expressed by the Atlanta Housing Authority and
TUFF (Tenants United For Freedom); i.e., how do you feel
about self determination in the operation of housing units?
4.
Much has been said about the need for single family lowincome housing - - how would this be financed and where would
it be built?
5.
What is your attitude toward the present zoning law?
it be changed - - if so, how?
6.
What is your attitude toward the present building code?
it be changed - - if so, how?

HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE
Aug. 15, 1969
NOTES
A.There are 3,572 units known to be Being Considered, plus several sites on which the number of units has not been
set( there are approximately 1000 units in this category). 21,979 units Did Not Materialize, of which 21,032 were
included .in the previous Summary of May 15, 1969, and 947 additional uni ts are listed in this report as Lost.
(The majority of these losses were due to disapprovals of sites, a large portion of which were denials of
zoning petitions . ).1,246 units originally listed have been dropped from totals in this report, because of too high rentals.
B.In view of the difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multifamily developments, it is apparent that the Low-Income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers
and Builders providing a substantial portion of the requirements on small scattered sites by both Conventional
and Federal assisted financing. Also Public Housing in small projects, to include small developments on scattered
sites is strongly advocated, for future development.
C.No proposal has yet been made for the construction of units(even efficiencies) to rent or s e ll for as
per mo. although the London Towne Houses, a 22l(d) 3 Co-op development now approaching completion, is
with its one bedroom unit selling at 69 dollars a mo. The City's greatest need is the $30-$50 per Mo.
purchase range, which appears to have little chance of accomplishment, without substantial government
low as $50
near this
rentalsubsidy.
D.Prefab distributors and conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Cod es
difficulties, are currently erecting very few single-family houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for wh ic h
there is a strong demand and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the Ci ty
Li mits. Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will cost the developer not mor e than $1,500 p er
unit. A 5,000 sq. f 't. lot is considered ample for this type house which should reduce land costs by 33 1/3%; most houses in
this price range are currently being erected in Atlanta on R-5 lots having a minimum size of 7,500 sq. ft.
E.The nonprofit Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation is now in business. The CACUR's nonprofit corporation to
rehabilitate existing units. under 221 (h) has completed its first group of 5 houses in Lindwood Park. Vanguard Housing Corp.
has obtained FHA commitment for rehabilitation of 6 units under 221 (h).
F.Informat i on is welcomed as to corrections, addi~ions or deletions of material contained in this report.

This effort, call ed The Mayor 's Ho u s i n~ Resou rces Pro g ra1n" was
suppo r ted by the U . S . Departrnent of Eoush1g a.tid U:tban Developn-.le:nt,
. private banks, devel opers, c hur c hes , civic gr o ups and individual
citizens at a ll levels .
This program has produced res ults. As of this d ate , 21, 01 3 of the
five year goal of 16, 800 w1its have been complete df are u nder
const ruction, or in planning . The m o st re c ent status report is
attached for your information.
Within the next few weeks , the single most signiHci.nt devel o pment
generated by our programs will b e plac e d under construction. It is
the East Lake Meadows turnkey proj ect, w hich is the largest turnkey
public housing developm.ent in Ameri c a with comprehe n sive c omm.unity
facilities.
Be c ause of the significance of this unde rtaking and be c ause it embodies
so m a ny of the aspects of corrrmunity h ousing a c tion \vhich you so
magnificently support , all of us in Atlanta - City Hall, the builders,
our housing offici a ls, and citizens in general - fee l that we want to share
the beginning of this proj ect with you.

Dear Cecil:
REC EtVED
AUG 1 9 1969
lflNCH. ALEXAr!DER, BARNES,
ROTHSCHI LD & PASCHAL
ATLANTA, GEORGIA
The purpose of this letter is to tender my resignation as
a member of the Housing Restudy Panel of the Housing Resources
Committee. It is my opinion that my continued affiliation
cannot serve any useful purpose and because of this, I
should make way for someone who can be more constructive.
Because of my heavy travel schedule and matters of corporate
business which have constantly required more attention, I
asked William Bohn o f our CBC Corporate Staff to participate
in Housing Resources Committee activities in my name.
This Mr. Bohn did over a period of almost two years and from
what I reviewed worked effectively with Mr. Palmer, Mr. Coleman
and other members of the community who were interested in one
ob jective - - that of improving housing for those Atlantans
in sub- economic circumstances.
Through their efforts and with the outstanding help of Mr.
Johnson and the City Planning Department, a rather comprehensive plan of public housing distribution and construction
was developed.
I reviewed this plan here at White Columns
and WSB Radio and Television did severa l e ditoria ls in support
o f the concept - - the most important fa ction of this effort
was to develop more public housing quickly for Atlanta ' s poor.
In 1968 through Al Bows, this gained the support of the
Executive Committee of the Atlanta Cha mber o f Commerce as
we ll as several of Atlanta's significant social action groups.

For many reasons, some of which we are all aware, we have
not moved far enough fast enough in the public housing area
and the above plan is still pretty muc_h on dead center.
I know of the re-organization of the Housing Resources
Committee and the Restudy Panel. I have read the minutes
of recent meetings , since re-organization, and have passed
them on to Mr. Bohn f or his information.
We are both of the opinion that Atlanta is dangerously
marking time in our need for more public housing. The
time for postponing studies and "restudy " has past and I
hope we will be able to move forward with conviction soon.
Best personal regards.
ly yours,

Dear Members, Housing Resources Co~mittee; 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 any
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
convenie nce in letting us know whether you plan to attend.
Sincerely,

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
This morning I heard a rumor that the 800 unit East Lake
No. 2 Public Housing project is in difficulty. I immediately
called Gilbert Boggs in the Housing Authority who confirmed
the report.
According to Gilbert, a Letter of Intent had been issued
on the project to be produced for a given price and that now
the Developer claims that the escalation of cost, particularly
interest, makes it impossible to produce the project at the
price stated in the Letter of Intent and has asked for more
money.
HUD has apparently taken the position that the Letter
of Intent is equivalent to a contract and will not up the
price. The difference in price I understand is about
$1,000,000 or $1,250 per unit.
It appears that the Developer proposed to use a patented
pre-stressed concrete slab panel type of construction and the
patent holder has raised Its previous estimate disproportionately.
The Developer is currently attempting to revise the plans
to use a different type of construction, which may not be any
cheaper, since costs have risen recently in all fields since
the original commitment.
Thought you should know about this. Gilbert Boggs has
agreed to keep me informed of further developments.
Sincerely,
~J~

Reorganizational Meeting
Housing Resources Committee
May 8, 1969
The Reorganizational Meeting of 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, list 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 the meeting.
The Chairman then introduced Mayor Allen.
Mayor Allen opened his remarks by 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 and more of the City's slums are
being cleared away, but there are still too many slum pockets left
over the City, and that the standards of the Housing Code are being
constantly increased. He said that he would like to see for every
new housing development, a slum podket in the City be cleared
away. He stated that the Federal Government is helping with the
problem of housing, because the City does not have enough revenue
to support or finance these projects. Mayor Allen particularly
praised the Housing Authority for its assistance, cooperation and
ability to cope wi th the low- i ncome housing situation in Atlanta.
Mayor Allen also stated that so far this year the Building
Permits (pr i ai rily for Industrial and Commerical construction) have
i nc r e a sed about 50% abov e l a st year, which was a record year.
Mayor Al l en then went on to explain the letter h e wrot e to
Chairma n Alexa nd er on April 3, 1969, giv i ng new di r ection to the
Ho us ing Re s ources Commi ttee.
May o r Allen stated that seve ral changes have o ccurred in
l e gisl ation, which ar e the Mode l Citie s Ac t o f 1966, the Fair
Housing Act of 1966 and the Housing Act of 1968 that have changed
the housing goals and needs o f t h e City of Atlanta.
He then stated that since the Housing illesources Committee
has asked his offic e for new instructions, he suggested that the
following areas be investigated and action initiated during 1969:
�Page 2
1.
The Planning Department has been instructed
by the Planning and Dev elopment Committee of
the Board of Aldermen to conduct a total review
and evaluation o f our housing efforts to date,
along with a redefinition of total housing
needs by location, type, size and rentals and
sales price ranges.
Mayor Allen said thot the HRC should be involved in this matter
and assist the Pla nning Depa rtment in the development of the scope
of this study and in ob ta i ning political acceptability and suppor t.
At present a joint Atlanta-Fulton County Housing study is being
proposed.
2.
Eric Hil l and bssociates has just c ompleted
its report for the Model Neighborhood Program.
This repo r t contains muc h food for thought in
the area o f lowering the costs of low-income
housing.
HRC should ta k e the i nitiative and
explore ways and me ans to implement those
pertinent recommendations deemed f easible on
a c ity -wide basis.
3.
Conve n tional urban r enewal projects, the
Neighborhood Devel opQent Pr ogram and Model
Cities Pr og ram can provide muc h needed land for
housing de v elopment and improvement purposes.
In this r egard the HRC can assume a v ery
important r ole.
4.
Outs ide o f the boundaries of conventiona l
urban rene wal projects, the Ne ighborhood
Development Pr ogram and Model Cities Pr og ram ,
the pr oc urement and development of sites fo r
housing can bes t be expected to c ome al ong by
themselves b ecause o f the momentum ge nerat ed
i n the initial t~ o years .
If there is a need
f o r prodding here, it is in the direction o f
placing greater emphasis in outlying are~s o f
the City o n single-family, publ ic housing and
higher density public housi ng in close proximity
to the centr81 core of the C i t y.
HRC c an be
most helpful in providing this type of direc tion
to city development, and
5.
Xn general, the new housing units which have
been developed were intended as replacement
housing for slum properties . Yet, slums
still exist.
Xn the future, HRC should seek
to de v ise and implement ways and means through
which one slum structure would be demolished
�Page 3
for each new low-cost housing unit created.
Unless this is done immediately , the same
slums will be with us indefinitely .
Mayor Allen stated that low-income housing usually impr oves
the neighborhood after it has been developed. He stated that he
does not belie v e that large tracts of land are going to be zoned
this year ( because of impending po l itical elections) in h esidential
areas for low-income housing.
Pr oba b ly the land surrounding already existing hou sing developments can be expanded and some
new developments, perhaps in the outlying areas .
Mr . Alexander agreed with Ma yor Allen on the elimination of
slums in the At lant a area and empha s ized the imp o rt a nce o f the
Mayor's rol e i n the overall program .
Mr. Alexander then commented on the Br o ad Functions set up
for the Committee (copies distributed and with file copy only of

He explained the functions o f the Business

the newly organized Housing LoJations , newly organ ized Bousing
1rnst u dy, Legal, newly o rganized Moderate and Upper Income InTown Ho using, P ublic Relations 2nd Social Aspect s P2nels of the
Comm i ttee.
At this point, Mr . Ar cher D. Sm i th, III , Chairman of the
Legal Pa nel, as k ed Mayor hllen if his new direction letter to
the Chairman meant that the Housing Resources Committee should
discontin u e i ts previous efforts in promoting sites for low and
medium income housing and assisting de v elopc r8 by ~upporting
rezon i ng of certain proposed tracts considered appropriate for
this p u rpose.
Ma yor Alle n responded that he did not intend to restrict
activities of the HRC in a ny of its efforts in providing lowincome hous i ng; th a t h i s l e tter to Mr . Al ex a nder wa s intended
to re-defi n e and prov ide d i r ection for new ad ditional efforts

Dear Ivan:
In response to your letter of instructions of April
3, 1969, the Housing Resources Committee has been reorganized
and several of the Panels are progressing nicely in their
work.
One of the key documents you requested our Committee
to work on has been most difficult to obtain. This is the
report, "Lowering The Cost of Housing", prepared by Eric
Hill and Associates for the Model Cities Program.
After talking with the staff of the Planning Department, the Model Cities Staff and the Consultant, it appears
that the study was completed, sometime in March 1969 and has
not yet been printed. We have been advised from time to time
that it was in the process of being reproduced. However, we
are also told that no specific authorization to print the
report has yet been issued.
The Construction and Design Panel of HRC is having
its study of this report considerably delayed, in waiting
for copies of the report.
The printing of this report is apparently the
responsibility of the Model Cities Program. Consequently,
we are asking your assistance as Chairman of the Executive
Board to expedite the delivery of this report to us in order
that we might proceed with the charge you have given us for
1969.
Sincere!~~

Dear Mr. Alexander:
Thank you so much for sending me a copy of your
Housing Resources Committee report. The need
for better housing on a large scale remains one
of the priority items of unfinished business on
our national agenda. The progress that you are
making in Atlanta should serve as an inspiration
to municipalities throughout the nation.
Your invitation to speak to "Resurgens" was indeed
flattering . As much as I would like to meet with
your group, however, unfortunately my schedule
makes it impossible to consider at this time.
But
I shall certainly keep it in mind, should the opportunity to accept present itself in the future.
With kinde st regards,
Sincerely,
�Finch Alexander Barnes Rothschild & Paschal

Dear Ivan:
I thought you would be interested in John Ottley ' s reactions.
After working out with the Braves (they gave me my r elease) I
stopped in Miami and Jacksonville to get a first hand rundown
on their metropolitan governments . Very soon I am going to
Nashville and Toronto to do the same research there.
Last week I spent an afternoon reviewing some ideas with Phil
Hammer and it was very useful.
