Mr. Cecil A. Alexander
44 Broad Street, N.W.
Atlanta, Georgia
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.
As knowledgeable Atlantans, the· pane 1 wi 11 be asked to orient, inform,
advise~ and help direct the three-man team which will be in Atlanta from
March 31st through April 11th. In addition to myself, this team is composed
of Messrs. Elias B. Silverman and Charles R. Warren.
There will be two panel meetings, to each of which this letter of
appointment is an invitation, These meetings will be held at Georgi a State
_College on:
Wednesday, April 2nd, from Noon until about 3:00 P.M .
