Final!:_y, a word about administration .
Citizen
Committee
Recommend that the functions of Housing Resourc es Committee and
Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal be combined.
Perhaps in a Citizens Committee for Urban Solutions.
That a Director of Urban Solutions with an a d e qua t e staff b e set up .
Alde rmen
That an Aldermanic Committee, charg e d with proble ms of housing, be set u p.
It is urg e d finally tha t low incom e housing, in sofar as possible b e
d einstitutionaliz ed.
Tha t it b e available throughout th e city in as small
concentration a.s possible.
That those, who occupy if b ecome members of the tota l community - not
separate enclaves.
�P age 4
I know that the new administration is dedicated to solving the
housing problems - Although I am forced to return to my practice, there
are many better qualified than I to carry on at the citizen's leve l.
I urge
the new administration to capitalize on this great as set to the city - the
concerned people who have served on the· Housing R esources Con1.mittee.
