Dear Mayor Allen:
Thank you very much for your recent letter and I
appreciate the opportunity which you offer to visit
your city.
I plan to be out of the country on the dates of the
tour of Atlanta. However, sometime I hope to have
the chance to come to Atlanta to see the problems of
the inner city.

Dear Mr. Mayor:
I appreciate very much your good letter of
January 20, with respect to the program of visits to the large
inner city of America .
I am very interested in this invitation, but
I do not believe that I can take advantage of this opportunity to
visit your city .

Dear Members: Housing Resources Committee; and
Low-Income Housing Coordinating Group
MALCOLM D. JONES
Housing Coordinator
The September meeting of the Housing Resources Committee and the Low-Income
Housing Coordinating Group will be held Thursday, September 4, 3:00-5:00 P.M. in
Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall.
This is a full membership meeting of the HRC and it is hoped that all members
will attend.
This is a special meeting to which all the announced Candidates for Mayor have
been invited by the Public Relations Panel to meet with us to state their positions on
low-rent Public Housing and Federal assisted moderate income housing.
We suggest that each Panel Chairman of the HRC compile a list of several
questions for presentation to respective candidates. It would be well to specify which
questions are to be addressed to which candidates. Plea se get these lists of questions
into the Housing R e sources Committee Office by Thursda y, August 28 and we will
endeavor to get these questions to the respective candidates by August 30, in order
that we may receive more comprehensive answers from the candidates.
Other interesting developments, pertaining to Operation Break.through will also
be explained at this time.
This should be a very interesting meeting and we look forward to seeing each
of you on September 4.
Sincerely,

Housing Resources Committee
August 14, 1969
The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee was held
at 10: 30 A-. M., Thursday, August 14, 1969, in Committe e Room 2, Second Floor,
City Hall.
Invitational notice, list of those invited, with attendance of members and
guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy only
of the s e minutes.
Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by welcoming all members and
guests.
He then stated that Mr. Butler Henderson, member of the Business
Participation and Finance Panel has been designated to serve on the Citiz ens
Advisory Committe e of the H o using Authority and tha t h e is working with the
residents of all the low -income neighborhoods; and that he is also representing
the HRC in this capacity.
The first it en'1. on the Ag e nda w a s the r e port s from the P a n e ls on th e ir
1969 proposals and plans. The Chairman calle d fir s t on Mr. Ed B e nson of
the Constructi o n a nd D e s i gn P a nel.
Mr. Benson stated that the Construction and Design Panel on November
1st will pr esent a 90-Da y Report on implementing recommenda tions of the Eric
Hill and Associates Report in the Mode l Cities a rea. Som e o f the recomm e nda tions
a r e a s f ollows:
1.
Investigation of Code variances related to industrialized
housing systems.
2.
Recomm e nd Public R e l a tion s ac tivity.
The C h airman t hen calle d o n M rs. Do r o t hy Gib s on, Chairman of the
Social Aspects P a nel.
M rs. G ib s on s t ated t h a t the J . P. Steve n s and Company are doing quite
well on the plac e m e nt o f housing for t he remaining famil ies. She a l s o sta te d
tha t she att ende d a Schoo l M eeting and found ou t that the res id ent s of Perry
Home s do not want any more Public Housing units in this ar ea bec a us e the
s chools are to o crowded .
�Page Two
She also commented that most of the residents of some of the worst slum
areas in the City had rather stay and live in the terrible conditions of these
neighborhoods than to move into Public Housing.
Col. Malcolm Jones then added that on July 28th a small Housing
Assistance Office was established on the grounds of the Mill property. On
that pate, 48 families had not been relocated. To this date, 2 7 of those
families have been relocated. Of the remaining 21 families, 6 have been
approved for Public Housing or have ).ocated housing elsewhere. As of Friday,
August 8, only 15 families had not made plans for relocating.
The Chairman then called on Mr. Robert Watkins, Executive Director
of the Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation, and asked him if
his Corporation had found a way to buy and move these houses.
Mr. Watkins stated that he is working with the Atlanta Junior Chamber
of Commerce trying to find a suitable site for these houses to be moved.
The Chairman then asked Mr. Watkins if there was any specific date
that these houses had to be moved before they would be destroyed?
Mr. Watkins answered that the J. P. Stevens and Company would not
tear down the houses as long as his Corporation was looking for a place to
move these houses. He then stated that the Atlanta Junior Chamber of
Commerce had hired some real estate agents to help them select a suitable site.
Col. Jones then added that the J. P. Stevens and Company had set no
specific date to get these buildings moved, but the timing would have to be
reasonably soon.
Col. Jones stated that the Atlanta J. C. 's have an eye on Rockdale as
a possible site for relocating the J. P. Stevens and Company houses; that
Mr. Bill Ogan has approached Mr. Dave Rosen, who was awarded contract
for development of the Rockdale Urban Renewal project, in an effort to get
some of the Rockdale site. Also that the J. C. 's are looking at the area
just south of Rockdale on both sides of Grove Park Place as a possible site.
Land Agent records show this area is owned by the City of Atlanta (Construction
and Parks Department) and a parcel of about 8 acres which was deeded some
time ago by the City to Open Door Inc. for the purpose of constructing a
charitable home, which did not materialize.
The Chairman then called on Mr. Richard Harvey, Chairman of the
Public Relations Panel, to make a report of his Panel.

Mr. Harvey stated that letters had been sent to the Mayor Candidates to
meet with the full Committee on September 4th from 3:00-5:00 P . M . in Committee
Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall. Mr. Harvey stated that all of the Candidates
have accepted, except one. He further stated that the Candidates will hav e 10
minutes to present their views and a 10 minute question and answer period
The Chairman then sugg e sted tha t all of the Chai rmen of the diffe rent HRC
Panels should send their questions to the Housing Resources Committee Office
at least a week before the mee_ting so that the questions co~ld be sent to the
respective Candidates, in order to receive more comprehensive answers from
the Candidates.
The Cha irman the n calle d on Mr. Fr e ema n Hutton of the Lega l P a nel.
Mr. Freeman Hutton stated that his Panel was still working closely with
Mr. Pete Latimer, School Board Attorney, in attempting to get legislation
inacted which would permi t the School Board to lease school facilitie s which
might be built by d e velopers, in conne ction with Housing projects in orde r that
the housing a nd s chool fa ciliti es would be a v a ila bl e for u se at the same time.
He also stated that his Panel is still w or k ing on perfecting a propos a l
originally made by Lega l P a nel m ember, Mr. Cha rles L . Weltner, that a n
adequate Housin g s t a ff be e s tabli shed a s a separ a t e hous ing d e p a rtment to
provide the n e ces sary statistical, res earch and profe s s ional services n eeded
for Atla nta 's overall housing p r o gram.
The Chairman th e n called on Dr . Benja min E . Mays, Chairman of t h e
Housing Loca tions P a n e l, to pres e nt a Position P a per of his Panel to the

Mr. Bruce Gruber, a representative of Interfaith, asked if all the area
in areas such as Plunkettown, etc~ were owned by the residents of these areas.
The Chairman answered by stating that some of the land is owned by the
residents who still live in these areas and that some of the land is owned by
people who were residents in these areas but have moved out and have done
nothing about their property.
Dr. Mays stated some of the Emory Medical Students have set up a clinic
in the Plunkettown area to try to help those people in every way that ·they can.
He also stated that the people in Plunkettown are a little unreceptive, because
they have been promised so much for so long and nothing has been done.
Mr. Charles Stinson, Director of the Community Services, Atlanta Urban
League, stated that 40% of the residents in Plunkettown do own their property;
20% own land, but do not live in the Plunkettown area; and that the majority of
the residents want to leave the Plunkettown area.
The Chairman then c a lle d on Mr. Jack Linville, Planning Department a nd
Mr. Charle s Stinson, Director of the Community Se rvi ces, Atla nta U r b a n League ,
t o make a j oint b r i e fing of the Southwest A tlanta Zoni ng St udy pr epa r ed es s entially
by G eo rgia T ech Planning Stude nt s under Profe ss or Rupnow , working with
various citizens groups of the area,
It was as su.med that the dominating influence g overning the study was the
desire o f singl e-family home owne rs in the ar ea to limit a p a rtment developments
and to keep out low-income housing. The plan as proposed made no specific
provision for low-income housing d e velopm e nt, but provided for limited apa rtment
developments along the northern periphery only and an extremely small amount
of existing R-5 zoning , suita bl e f o r low - inc om e s ingle - f a mily hou s ing d e velopment.
The plan further proposed tha t the two l argest apartm ent z one d tracts in this a r ea
be rezoned for single-family (much of those areas under consid eration is not
suitable for single-family development). Although the Housing Resources Committee
had or iginally offered its services and assis t ance in the d evel opment of this project,
this Committee was not called upon to participate in this project.
The Chairman then discussed in some d etail Op eration Breakthrough expl aining the principal elements involved and incentives _b e ing offered by HUD to Cities
which may be selected for Prototype housing sites and the general advantages of
such selection.
A staff paper prepared in the HRC Office pertaining the significant features
involved was dist r ibuted to members of the Committee. (Encl. 3 )
�Page Five
After considerable discussion, motion was made by Mr . Bob Watkins,
seconded and unaminously adopted recommending that the City make application
for a Prototype housing site and enter wholeheartedly into Operation Breakthrough.
The meeting was adjourned at 12: 00 P. M.

�Position Paper
HOUSING LOCATIONS PANEL
Housing Resources Committee
For families in the lowest income brackets, $3,000 and below, which is
.
generally considered poverty level, low- rent Public Housing has to date been the
only current means of providing standard housing.
Other Federal assisted programs, such as the FHA 221 d(2) (Single--family
home ownership); the 221 d(3) (Thus far the work horse of the multi-family lowincome housing program); and the 235, 235 (j) and 236 programs authorized in the
1968 Housing Act, are all designed to provide standard housing for those families
whose incomes are just above the Public Housing level but not sufficient to enable
them to compete for standard housing in the private enterprise open market, as it
is now constituted.
Recent surve y, conducted by a priva te group, showed that more than 80%
of the existing and projected Public Housing units in the Atlanta Metropolitan
area are located within the City of Atlanta.
Furthermore, the FHA 221 d(3)
moderate income hou sing program is prohibited by Federal l aw from going in any
area that does not have a certified Workable Program.
(None of the Counties
in the Atlanta Metropolitan area have certified Wo rkable Programs. ) This
restriction however does n ot apply to the FHA 235 or 236 moderate income h ou sing
programs authorized by the 1968 Housing Act.
Since the metropolitan area outside the Atlanta City Limits provides job
opportunities and employment for such a l arge portion of the Atlanta M etropolitan
population and constitutes the primary base for the growth of the Metropolitan area,
it is only just and reasonable that low- rent Public Housing units and Federally
�Page Two
assisted moderate income housing be more equitably distributed beyond the City
Limits of Atlanta.
At the present time, in Atlanta's current housi_n g program, locations are
needed for 2, 261 Public Housing units to meet reservations already requested by
the City and approved by the Housing Assistance Administration of HUD.
Also,
Federal reservations and sites are needed for an additional l, 936 Public Housing
units in order to meet the City's 5-year goal in this important category.
Under existing Federal policies, the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta
1s authorized to produce {build, buy or lease) and operate Public Housing units
·within 10 miles distance of Atlanta City Limits, provided the locations are not
within the jurisdiction of another legally constituted Housing Authority and if the
governing body of the administrative jurisdiction in which the developments are to
be located consents and agrees to provide the necessary community facilities,
Since the FHA 235 and 236 housing programs do not require Workable
Programs nor formal agreement by the local administrative bodies to provide
community facilities, there is an opportunity under these programs for developments to be located in almost any administrative jurisdiction within the Atlanta
Metropolitan area.
We, members of the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources
Committee, believe that adequate physical sites e xi st (but not without serious
problems as to availability), both within the City Limits of Atlanta and in the
unincorp o rated areas of adjacent counties, to meet current and future lowincome housing needs, without detriment to any group or neighborhood. However,
�Page Three
many tests such as zoning, government agency approval, price, utilities, and
availability must be passed,
These tests greatly limit site acquisition.
We
also feel that not all future Public Housing units or Federally assisted mpderate
income housing should be located within the City of Atlanta.
We further feel that within the City of Atlanta, Public Housing should ~e
dispersed and that Public Housing developments outside the City should -be located
near sources of employment for the occupants, in developments of not to exceed
200- 300 units each,
We also believe that home ownership for both moderate and low-income
families should be encouraged, where ever possible and that private enterprise
should continually be encouraged to produce needed housing in all categories.
We welcome all efforts to produce housing through private enterprise and hope
that ways and means will be found to create housing throagh this traditional method.
We further feel that Atlanta urgently needs a comprehensive review of the
Zoning Ordinance and complete rezoning of the entire City {not done since 1954)
in order to best meet the City's needs in many fields, to include adequate provision
for low-income housing of all categories.
Since residential construction is largely channeled cost-wise in economic
strata, through requirements on minimum lot sizes authorized for respective
Zoning Districts, thereby limiting upper brackets on construction costs which are
· practical for the various categories, it follows that apartment zoning might just
as logically also have several categories, with some particular categories geared
to low-rent Public Housing and to Federally assisted housing programs , such as
the FHA 221 d{3), 235 and 236.
�Page Four
We therefore recommend and urge the following:
a.
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.
That home ownership projects be sponsored and encouraged where
ever possible for bqth moderate and low-income families.
c.
That private enterprise seek to enter the field of low-income housing.
d.
That a comprehensive review and rezoning of the entire City of Atlanta
be made as soon as possible to meet the constantly expanding needs
of the City; and
That consideration be given to e.stablishing separate apartment zoning
categories for Federal assisted multi-family housing developments.
, e.
That the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta actively seek
appropriate locations, both within and outside the City Limits of Atlanta,
with view to establishment and operation of Public Housmg developments
thereon in groups of not to exceed 200-300 units each .
f.
That the Housing Locations Panel of the Housing Resources Committee
meet and confer with County Commissioners of adjoining counties, encouragin1
their cooperation and active participation in locating some low-rent
Public Housing units and moderate income housing developments in
appropriate location s within their re spective jurisdiction.

RESOLUTION
by the
Housing Resources Committee
SU_P PORTING THE NEED FOR HIGHLY CRITICAL DEPRESSED P.,.REAS,
INCLUDING LIGHTNING AND PLUNKETTOWN, IN THE NEXT NDP APPLICATION
FOR EXECUTION IN 1970.
WHEREAS, There are several highly critical and relatively limited depressed
areas in Atlanta of extremely substanda rd housing, such as PLUNKETTOWN,
LIGHTNING, HUFF ROAD and SPRING AVENUE, N. W.; and
WHEREAS, The most appropriate and feasible approach toward elimination
of the substandar d conditions in these a reas in clearance a nd redevelopm ent
of these fl,reas through the NDP program; and
WHEREAS, Potential non-cash grants-in-aid credits for the above stated
areas are very limited; and
WHEREAS, The substandard physical conditions in these areas are of
such long standing with little real effort made i n the past to correct them; and
_ . - WHEREAS, The City cannot e liminate its principal areas of sub standar d
conditions and inferior dwellings until these area s have been brought u n der
NDP treatment; and
WHEREAS, The City of Atlanta has a surplus of approximately $2. 2
million in non-cash grants -in-aid credits in the Conventional Urban Renewal
program.
�NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Housing Resources
Committee:
a.
That the Planning and Development Committee of the Board of
Aldermen be and are hereby requested to include the specific
areas listed above, in the City's NDP application for Execution
in 1970; and
b.
That the Mayor and Board of Aldermen be and are hereby
requested to approve the inclusion of these areas for Execution
in the next NDP application of the City of Atlanta; and
c.
That although we encourage and appreciate the efforts of other
neighborhoods to improve their areas through the NDP program,
if we are to eliminate the war st slums in the City, additional
an.d less deteriorated areas should not be placed in priority
above the areas listed in this R es olution, for inclusion in the
next NDP application for execution in 1970, but rather that
special efforts be made to also include such worthy areas.
d.
That the Fede ral Government (HUD) be form a lly requested by
th_e Mayor to authorize utilization of a reasonable portion of
Atlanta's surplus credits in its conventional Urban Renewal
progra m to help m eet the local s h a re of NDP activity i n the se
particular areas.

HOUSING RESOURCES COMlvlITTEE
August 5, 1969
Subject:
·-~1
Operation Breakthrough
INFORMATIONAL DATA
This is a HUD sponsored housing project designed to create a working
partnership of Federal, State and local go_vermnents, labor, industry, the
.,
financial community, hon~e builders and consu1ners.
One prototype site is to be selected in each HUD Region (possibly two
in two Regions).
Prototype sites 1nay be proposed by State, County or City Officials,
housing authorities, private developers or financial institutions.
However,
proposals must be endorsed and supported by appropriate elected officials ·•.
Proposals (involving considerable d e tail) must be submitted to HUD,
Washington, D. C., by September 19, 1969.
Design and development contracts will be awarded to those submitting
the -best and most promising proposals.
Developments are to be planned and managed by HUD and will include
mixed type housing for use by mixed economic levels and with racial integration.
.
!
Sites may vary from 5-30 acres, wi.th expe.ct~tio~ _of developme~t of.
I
up to 100 units.
The following are some of the more pertinent requirements:
a.
W_illingness to adjust codes as necessary and to accept building
and land. use concepts developed in Ope ration Breakthrough.
�. .......,_ . - : . -~--- ......
b,
That necessary services and facilities arc available or readily
ace es sible,
c,
Arrangements for bringing the land under federal control and
management,
d. :
Overall site planning will be perform cd by a planning organization ·
selected by HUD.
e.
,
Arrangements for eventual disposition of the tract and prototype
'
housing after prototype perio~.
f.
Considerable detailed specific data is required to be submitted
with the proposal.
Particular advantages to cities and progra1ns available to be used in support
of the Breakthrough are shown in attached.
(Enclosures 1 and 2, )
COMMENT
It appears that this is perhaps the best means of obtaining local
demonstration of housing innovations, techniques, materials, methods of construction
arid experimentation in overcoming unneces sar y code restraints.
li Atlanta could be selected as one of the prototype sites, it would serve
to keep the City . in its
already respected
position
of leadership in

.field,
.
It would be very appropriate and helpful if one of the leading banks or
Building and Loan Associations in Atlanta would sp onsor this program and file
application for a Regional Prototype site.
However, in view of the short time
available for filing application and the many innovative approaches involved in the
proje_ct, it will probably be more practical for it to be undertaken by an existing
public organiz a tion , s_uch as the Housing Authority.

Atlanta is at this moment on the verge of a major breakthrough in
construction of low and mod rate income housi ng - perhaps the best opportunity
we have had yet. If successfully pursued, within a very short time Atlanta
could probably obtain £irm commitments for all the low and moderate income
housing it ill need in the next 5 years and thus maintain it ascendency and
1 adership in the hou ing fi ld.
ff we pass up thi
opportunity now . we will oon b p ed by and
m jor n tional and local developer will concentr te on citie in which they
can readily obtain suitable land site • appropriate zoning and land co t
which .th y can live with.

A very helpful and practical interim procedure, would be for the Greater
Atlanta Housing Development Corporation to buy now and bank suitable tracts of
land for later disposition to nonp:rofit and or prof.i t motivated devel opers !or
eventual construction of low and moderate income housing.
The opportunity seems to be available now .

Dale Shapiro
Urban Systems Research and Engineering, Inc.
20 State Street
Boston, Massachusetts
This organization is following up on recommendations contained in the
Kaiser report pertaining to certain ten ta ti ve ·locations listed in the Model ·cities
area. This firm is interested primarily in obtaining sites through Public bodies
for low-rise housing development and would like to obtain a suitable site in
Atlanta Model Cities area.

Miss Marion Morris and Mr. Robert J. Corietta
Field Operations

Urban Systems Development Corporation (USDC)
Crystal Plaza Building 1
2001 Jefferson Davis Highway
Arlington, Virginia 22202
This firm is interested in obtaining a suitable Industrial site (about 10
acres) i n Atlanta for erection of a modular housing plant; also interested in
obtaining apartment zoned land for erection of town-houses; also single family.
This firm is understood to be a subsidary of Westinghouse.

Alan L. Hoffman, Chief Exe cu ti ve Officer
National Housing Council
Suite 403, Plaza One Bui~ding
One Main Plaza East
· Norfolk, Virginia 23510
See attached news article, from the Times Herald, Newport ~ews,
Virginia, July 22, 1969. Mr. Hoffman has informed me that his Group has a
commitment to HUD to produce 25, 000 housing units and frankly admitted that
they are looking for cities which will cooperate with them in making suitable
sites available, obtaining a ppropriate zonings and reasonable cooperation on
C odes. They are inte re ste d primarily in apartments both low and high-rise .
He reports little enthusiasm or encouragement from the Housing Authority .

Attorneys and Counselors
Suite 900, 1025 Connecticut Avenue, N . W.
Washington, D. C. 20036
This organization was authorized by the 1968 Housing Act and is just now
getting organized for business. This corporation expects to have firm commitments by October this year of $50, 000, 000 w hich it proposes to invest, in
partnership with substantial local building inte rests, in major cities {including
Atlanta) for low and moderate income housing developments, including the
Rent Supplement program.
5.
Breakthrough - A HUD sponsored and subsidized prototype project.
This project proposes selection of at least one prototype housing site
in each Region of HUD {possibly 2 sites in 2 of the Regions) and is designed to
create a working partnership of Federal, State and local gover_n ments, labor,
industry, the financial community, home builders and consumers.
Proposals for participation in the program may be made by local city
officials, housing authorities or sponsored by private developers or financial
institutions, but must be endorsed and supported by the appropriate elected
officials - Governor, Mayor or County Commissioners. Applications must be
submitted to HUD by September 19 and require quite involved administrative
details. Suitable sites must be made available, (5 - 30 acres to accomodate up
to 100 units), agreement to place under Federal control and management,
make necessary adjustments in codes and arrangements made for eventual d i sposition of the tract and prototype housing.
In view of Atlanta's w idely publicized leadership in the low and moderate
income field, it w ould appea r desirable for the City to make application
(pe r haps th r ough the Housing Author i ty) for one of these Regional Prot oty pe s i tes .

Mr. Nicholas Berryman
Adams-Cates Company, Realtors
Has a 21 acre site, zoned· A-1; off South Expressway just south of the
Vocational School which he applied to the Housing Authority last May for
commitment for Public Housing . He claims that the Housing Authority has
shown little or no interest and only about 3 weeks ago asked the Planning
Department for an opinion and availability of City Services. July 29, Mr.
Berryman requested assistance of this office in_getting a reply to the Housing
Authority from the Planning Department.
Also, Mr. Berryman is involved in the annexation to _the City of the
site West of Kimberly Road, opposite the Seventh Day Adventists' property,
and has applied to the Housing Authority for commitments for Public Housing.
This property is zoned Apartments, Residential and small amount of
Commercial. The prospective developers do not propose to ask for rezoning,
but are willing to develop as is, and fq.rthermore to build a pumping station
at their expense and dedicate it to the City, to lift the sewage over Kimberly
Road to existing out fall sewer; or to contribute $100. 00 per unit to the City
to help pay for sewer facilities.

Mr. W. L. Moore, Attorney and Builder

This local organization is currently seriously trying to obtain a suitable
tract of land on which to relocated some 320, or portion thereof, single-family
houses now on the J . P. Stevens and Company property, which_ are avaUable
{or relocation and rehabilitating under FHA programs. · These houses are
basically sound, range from 1 bedroom 0 -to· 4 bedrooms and can be obtained
from the J. P. Stevens and Company for practically nothing.

John Hancock Building
Tel. 522-9491
This local firm has an exclusive on a 33. 6 acre tract at the intersection
of Carroll Road and Harvill Road, N. W. , which they are offering for sale. This
property is adjacent to a recently acquired elementary school site, has access
to sewer and lies beautifully. It's current zoning is M-1 {the extent of which is
for in excesi;; of industrial use needs in this general area in the foreseeable
future).
This property is in a racially mixed area, and would provide an ideal
location for a prototype housing site under operation breakthrough, which
development should have a strong influence on stabilizing this area.

Operation Breakthroug h
INFORMATIONAL DAT A
This is a HUD sponsored housing project designed to create a working
partnership of Federal, State and loca l governments, l a bo r , industry, the
financial community, home builders and consu1ners.
One prototype site is to b e selected in each HUD Reg ion (pas sibly two
in two R egions ).
Prototype sites may be proposed by State , County or City Officials,
housing authorities, private deve lopers or financial institutions.
However,
propo sal s must be endorsed and support ed by appropriate e le cte d officials.
Proposals (involving considerable detail ) must be subrµitted to HUD,
Washingto n , D. C., by September 19, 1969.
D es ign and development contracts will be awarded to those submitting
· the best and most promising proposals.
D eve lopm ents are to b e planned and managed by HUD and will include
mixed typ e housing for use by mixed economic l eve ls and with racial integration.
!
Sites may vary fr om 5- 3 0 acres, · with expectation of development of
up to 100 units.
The following are some of the more pertinent requirements:
a.
Willingness to adjust codes as necessary and to accept building
and land use concepts develop e d in Opera tion Breakthrough.
�b.
That necessary services and facilities are available or readily
accessible.
c.
Arrangements for bringing the land under federal control and
management.
d.
Overall site planning will be performed by a planning organization
selected by HUD.
e.
Arrangements for eventual disposition of the tract and prototype
housing after prototype period.
f.
Considerable detailed specific data is required to be submitted
with the proposal.
Particular advantages to cities and programs available to be used m support
of the Breakthrough are shown in attached.
(Enclosures 1 and 2.)
COMMENT
It appears that this is perhaps the best means of obtaining local
demonstration of housing innovations, techniques, materials, methods of construction
and experimentation in overcoming unnecessary code restraints.
If Atlanta could be selected as one of the prototype sites, it would serve
to .keep .the City in its already respected position of leadership .in the housing
field.
.
It would be very appropriate and helpful if one of the leading banks or
Building and Loan Associations in Atlanta would sponsor this program and file
application for a Regional Prototype site.
However, in view of the short time
available for filing application and the many innovative approaches involved in the
project, it will probably be more practical for it to be undertaken by an e xi sting
public organization, such as the Housing Authority .

HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE
July 17, 1969
The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee
~a s held at 10:30 A.M., Thursday, July 17, 1969, in the main
auditorium of the John O. Chiles Home at 435 Ashby Street, S.W.
Invitational notice, 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 and thanking all the members for attending the oeeting.
The ChairQan then asked if the members would rather meet
at different places such as Public Housing Projects, etc., than
to meet at the same plnce every month.
He explained th~t if
meetings were held at other places, the meetings could be
educational. There was general concurrence for holding some
meetings at other places than the City Hall.
The Chairman then called on some of the Chnirmen of the
dif ferent Panels for reports on the activities of their Panels.
He called first on Mrs. Dorothy Gibson, Chairman of the Social
Aspects Panel.
Mrs. Gibson stated that she made n telephone survey of five
d i f ferent organizations to find out their reaction as to the need
f or emergency housing. She called the Butler Street YMCA, Urban
Lea gue, Atlanta P olice Department and the Community Council.
Mrs . Gibson a lso st a t e d that sh e then called the Salvation Army
t o get thei r r eact i on. The Snlvation Army stated that they do not
feel th a t the re is much need fo r emergency housing; and that most
o~ th e Sa lv a t i on Army Shelters are i nadequately staffed a nd c a nnot
pr o vid e a ny mo r e shelters for eme rgency cases.

Thank you for your letter of November 11th and although

Dear Ivan:
We thought you might be interested in the enclo sed from the
Department of Housing and Urban Development.
For your information I have tendered my resignation as Chairman
of the Housing Re sources Committee to the Mayor elect so he can
plan accordingly . My reason is that my position has exc luded
our firm from taking any housing commissions. Our failure in
recent months to obtain other type s of commissions, which we
anticipated might be ours, and the contraction in general in
building has made it imperative that we seek work in the housing
field. I also turned down the Governor ' s request to serve on
his committee.
It has been a really rewarding experience to serve as your
Chairman. Your contribution in the field of housing will be
one of the hall marks of your admini stration and I am happy that
I had a role in it.
It has been a gr e at eight years and as Pericles time was known as
the "Golden Age of Athens", y our time will, I am sure, become the
"Golden Age of At lanta".
With warmest regards.

Dear Mr. Alexander:

(NDP).

I want to clarify that the amount of $24 million referred to in
Mr. John T. Edmunds' letter of September 23 represents a tentative
earmarking, based on estimates, of funds for second year NOP
activiti~s in the six cities in Region III presently involved in
NDP. The actual amount cannot be determined until Congress has
completed action on HUD's Fiscal Year 1970 appropriations and the
Fiscal Year 1970 funding levels for the Neighborhood· Development
.Program have been established.


•,1:

,{ ' , ..:


'
Although our Department is firmly committed to the Neighborhood
Development Program, it is anticipated that fund limitations will
make it necessary to place controls on its management. The
accompanying background paper explains these considerations in
greater detail.
Mr. Edmunds and his staff are working out guidelines for the
allocation of funds within ·Region III when the Fiscal Year 1970
funding levels of the Neighborhood Development Program have been
established. I suggest that you keep in touch with him with
respect to future funding decisions concerning Atlanta's
Neighbor hood Deve lopment Program.
yours,

A BACKGROUND PAPER
ON THE
NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM_ (NDP)
The Problem
The Neighborhood Development Program (NDP), which ~-, as
- launched under the last Administra tion upon pa ss a g e of- the 1968
Housing Act, has generated a d emand for funds which far exceeds
the money tha t can be mad e ava ila bl e for the prog r a m.
--
Approxima tely 1,200 communities are presently participating
or have applications pending in the urban renewal program, of
which NDP is a part. About 300 cities have submitted, or a re
on the verge of submitting, NDP applica tions. The estimated
requ e st s for funds fro m the s e 300 citi e s for this year threat en,
and by 1971 would cl early exceed, the tota l amount of money
·availabl e for the e n t ire prog r a m, ev en if no ren ewa l a ctiviti e s
are funded in any of the other 900 non-NDP communities.
!,.
In part, the large d emand for NDP st ems from the f a ct
that whe n the prog r a m was l aunched a nd the citi e s wer e e ncouraged
. to fil e a pplica tion s, they we r e g ive n no limitat ions, nor wer e
the y give n r eason to think the ir full funding ex pecta tion s wo uld
not b e approv ed.
This Administra tion h a s thus been confront ed with a
pres e nt a nd pot e ntia l dema nd for NDP which ha s mad e it es sen t i a l
to impo se ma nageme nt c ontrol s on NDP funding .
The Adminis t rati on ' s Pos it ion
The Adm_i nistra tion firml y support s the NDP c onc e p t. The
prog r a m i s a va luab l e a nd f l exi b l e t oo l t o aid ci t i es in
achi eving the ir r e n ewa l obj e c t i ves . The NDP is d e s ign ed to
make it po s sib l e to take r a pid a c tio n o n u r gen t ne ed s a nd to
t ake immedi a t e a dva ntage of .a va i l a b l ~ d ev e l o pment opportuni t i es
wi t h in the bounda r i es of on e or mo r e r enewa l proj e ct a r eas i n
a give n community.

The imposition of controls a t this time is nece ssary
becaus e the Departme nt has no ri ght and no intention of
starting--as some have advocat e d--a large r progr a m than can
be fund e d, with a hope or wish that Congres s will ma ke th e
kind of rapid and ma j o r cha nge in r e newal funding l eve ls that
would be r e quire d.
Moreover, the Administrati o n has . a dee p s e nse of r e sponsibility
to the r e side nts of progra~ - are as to avoid any furth e r pe rpetu~fion
of fals e expe ctati o ns _a nd promi ses which, ba s e d on _the facts
known today, ha ve littl e or no ho pe of fulfillm e nt. This is a
practice which has unde rst a ndably embitt e r e d many ne ighbo rh ood

a consequence it placed hard and fast limitations on the pr og ram
in Dec embe r 1968, in order to avoid an esca lation of hopes and
expectations that likely could no t be fund e d. This r e sult e d
in th~ fun~ing of only 35 citi e s in FY 69.
Nature of th e Compet ing De mand
To help unde rstand th e probl e m facing th e De par tme nt at
the pres e nt time , it is ne c e ssary to look at how the funds
available in 1969 were actually spe nt:
Neede d incr eases for on-going r e newa l
projects that were started in pri o r
years, and ha ~e incurre d increa s es in
land and deve lopme nt costs above the
original estimates:
$409 mi 11 ion
Approval of new projects in cities
which have previou s ly participat e d
in the program as we ll as in communities
seeking assistance for the first time:
$465 milli on
Appro~a l of such r e lat e d programs as
code enforcement, demo lition, int e rim
assist a nc e in blight e d ar ea s, certifi e d
areas, and th e Communit y Re ne wal Program :
$105 milli o n
Approval ot 1st year NDP ac tion program
in 35 citi e s.
(Re preserits th e ne t amount
of fund s fr om the FY 1969 appropriations.
In addition, th e 1st . yea r NDP action program s
for these citi e s utiliz e d $210 million,
which the crti e s e l ect e d to transfe r for
that purpo se from funds al r ea dy und e r
contrac t or r e serva tion.)
$100 million (ne t)
. The above breakdown indicat e s th e nature and dime ns ion.of
the competing dc mc1;nd for th e r e ne wa l dollar. While th e
Departme nt plan s to introduc e policies and prac tic e s t ha t will
reduc e th e amount r e quire d for incr ease s for on - going projects ,
this will ne ces sa rily be a g r adua l process that wi ll not
releas e signifi ca nt s um s of mo ne y for oth e r purposes in the
immediat e futur e . With r es pe ct to th e other compone nt s in th e
o verall br eakdown, t h e rates indica t e d abov e a r c like ly to
remain approxima tely th e same , so long as NDP r emain s a n
optional rath e r th a n a ma nda t o r y a ppr C1.:1c h for th e citi es .
�4
Congress established NDP as an optional program , a nd this
Administration int e nds to preserve that free choice , without
pres suring or coe rcing any community into ado pting one approach
over anothe r.
The Dema nd f or NDP Funds
In addition to the problem caus e d by all the compe ting
demands for r e newal funds, the NDP its e lf ha s unl eashe d a
rapidly e scalating demand for funds, which this year thr~at e ns,
· and by 1971 wo uld cl early consume all availabl e funds, l eaving
nothing for the 900 non-NDP communiti e s.
The following table shows the projected demand f o r NDP
fund s . It do es not include any estimat e of de mand for any
communiti es beyond the 322 which have already submitt e d, or are

Housing Resources Committee
October 8, 1969
The regular 1nonthly meeting of the Housing Resources Com1nittee wa s held at
10:30 A. M., Wednesday , October 8, 1969, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City
Hall.
Invitational notice, Agenda, list of those invited, with attendance of members
and guests indicated, and other related documents are attached to the file copy of
these minutes.
Chairman Alexander opened the meeting by explaining the preparation of, and
filing by the City on September 19, 1969, an appiication for consideration by HUD for
designation of Atlanta as a prototype housing site City, under 11 0peration Breakthrough 11 ;
that two sites were proposed, i.e., a fragmented site in 3 portions in the Model Ci.ties
area and a 33. 6 acre composite site at the intersection of Carrol and Har v ill Roads, N. W.
It was also expl a ined that Atlanta h ad been omitted in the initial invitations by
HUD and that a very short time was available in which to prepare and submit the
applicati_o n, after Atlanta was invited to do so. The Chairman complemented Urban
East, Housing Consultant Firm, which assembled the a pplication, and other participants
in preparation of the application, including Model Cities, Housing Authority, Planning
Departme nt, State Planning Bureau, Atla nta Chamber of Commerce and M etropolita n
Planning Commission. He also_ commented on favora ble supporting endorsements
submitted by a large number of Agencies, business firms, religious groups and civic
organizations.

Mr. Howard Open shaw, Director of Redevelopment of the Housing Authority was
then called upon to present the overall Neighborhood Development Program_ Proposed
Activities for 1970.
Mr. Openshaw summarized the proposed overall program as shown in the attached
(Encl. 1) and emphasized the probable necessity for cut back, as indicated in letter of
September 23, 1969, from Region III of HUD (attached as part of Encl. 1) .
Mr . O penshaw then introdu ced Mr. Robert Barnett, Project Manager of the
Vine City NDP project and Mrs. Dorothy Bolden, Vice-Chairman of the Vine City PAC
(Project Ar.ea Committee).
Mr. Barnett very ably explained in detail the process used in developing the
plan, through citizen participation (planning with citizens of the area rather than
for them) and coordination with various agencies involved. He showed the current
over all plan as approved by the PAC and the specific area marked out for execution
in 1970. The overall plan includes: a 24-acre park, commercial area, garden type
apartments (no more than 2 story), town houses, single-family residences, and a
community area (including a day care center). The proposed activities for the 1970
target area are shown in enclosure 1.
Mr. Openshaw then introduced Mr. Harry Adley, President of Adley and Associates
and Mr. Fred Kerpel and Mr. Lavern Parks, associated with Mr. Adley, Consultants
for the Edgewood NDP area. He also introduced Mr. Curtis Parrish, Project Manager,
Edgewood NDP . ·
Mr. Adley made an excellent color slide presentation of the development process
and resulting plans of the Edgewood (formerly known as East Atlanta) NDP area. See
enclosure l for proposed activities for 1970.
In order to conserve time, further discussion of proposed activities in the NDP
areas was concluded.

The Chairman then asked Mr. Copenshaw if there was anything the HRC could
do to assist in preventing the drastic cut back in Atlanta's anticipated Federal capital
grant funds for 1970 ?; and called upon HRC members for comment. Motion was made
by Mr. Frank Clarke, seconded by Mr . Richard H a rvey and after conside rable discussion,
was unanimously adopted that a letter be written to the Secretary of HUD, with copy to the
Regional Administrator, pointing out the disastrous effects such a cut back would have
on Atlanta's current and future NDP activities and u1:ging that every consideration possible
oe extended Atlanta in not reducing the Federal capital grant funds. (Copy of letter
to Secretary Romney is attached, Encl. 3 ).
The Chairman then called on reports f_rom Panel Chairmen, starting with Mr.
Frank J. Clarke, Chairman of the Construction and Design Panel.
Mr. Clarke presented a formal written rerort of his Panel, copy attached (Encl.
2), which includes:
1.
His Panel's planned activities for the remainder of 1969;
2.
A proposed letter for Mayor Allen to deliver to his successor
recommending continuation of the HRC and the activities of the
Construction and D e sign Panel;
3.
A report developed in his office by an Urban Corps intern pertaining
to Atlanta's Codes.
Mr. Clarke re c ommended that the report on codes be a ccepted by the HRC a nd
copie s transmitte d to the Building Offici a l a nd Cha irman of the Building Committee ,
Board of Alderm e n. The Cha irman aske d if there was a ny objections? As there w a s
no objection from any member of the HRC, this will be done.
Courtesy copies of the report on codes had previously been presented to Mr.
W. R. Wofford, Building Official, before presentation of the report to the Housing
Resources Committee.
Mr. Wofford, who had previously been invited to the meeting, responded
unfavorably to the report on codes and specifically requested t h a t c e rt a in m e mbe r s of
his Department be permitte d then to express the ir vie ws and reactions to portions of
the r e port whi c h pertain to the ir specia l a ctivitie s. The Cha irm a n c onse nted.
Mr . Wofford then introduced the following members of his Department: Mr. W.
A. H e wes, Senior Administrative Assistant, Mr. Norman Koplon, Structural Eng ine er,
Mr . Wylie W. Mitc hell, Chie f Plumbin g Inspecto r , Mr. E . F . (Red) Wis e , Chief
E l e ctrical Inspec tor, Mr. W . H . Go o dw in, A ssi s t ant Chief Electri cal Ins pecto r a nd
M r. Romer Pittman, Assis t ant C hief P lumbing Inspecto r .
M r. Koplon, 1\.1 r . Mitc hell and Mr. Wi se pr e sented the ir view s on t he r epo r t .
T he y were a ll h os tile and n egative i n the ir comments and e x presse d s trong d i s satisfactior
with the report, i nsofar as it p ert aine d to their ac ti v itie s .
�Page Fou.,:
Mr. Archer Smith, Chairman of the L egal Panel, commented that he did not
consider the report pertaining to the codes as criticism or condemnation of the
Building D epartment, but rather in the nature of an inquiry for clarification to l aymen.
He also asked Mr. Wofford that since the Atlanta Building Code is based on the National
Building Code, with modifications pertaining to Atlanta, if an index of the changes
applicable to Atlanta only has been prepared, in order to provide quick determination
of the Atlanta changes by builders and architects familiar with the National Building
Code, without them having to take hours of reading and comparison between the two,
in order to determine what are the Atlanta changes .? Mr. Wofford replied that such
has not_been prepared, but that changes can be determined by comparison between
the two codes.
Mr. Alexander commented that if such a listing was available that it would be
quite a convenience to architects and he presumed likew ise to builders.

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 units 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 ?pparent 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 ~nd conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Cod es
difficulties, are currently erecting very few single-fam~ly 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
Limits. Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will cost the developer not more than $1,500 per
unit. A 5,000 sq. ft. 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.
h as obtained FHA commitment for rehabilitation of 6 units under 221 (h).
F.Information is welcomed as to corrections, adai~ions or deletions of material contained in this report.

Attached is report of my investigation and
recommendation re complaint received recently
in this office on repeat rehabilitation being
required by Model Cities on a residential
structure which was rehabilitated in 1967 under
the Housing Code.
You asked that I look into this particular
case carefully since there are probably several
hundred other properties in the Model Cities
area in similar circumstances.
This report is more lengthy and detailed
than I would have liked. However, this was
necessary in order to present the entire
picture of a matter which I think is very
important from the standpoint of ~he City and
which deserves serious con&i~erationo

Re:
Attached Correspondence
Due to the fact that several of the West
End Ministers, ·c itizen organizations and SWAP
all contended they were not opposed to Public
Housing, but to such a large number of low~income
families concentrated in one area, Cecil
Alexander suggested to Ham Douglas (attorney
for the ill fated Sewell Rd. Project, which
then consistedr of about 85 acres proposed for
650 apartment units under Turnkey) that he
believed it was worthwhile trying again for a ~
housing development of mixed type structures and
for mixed economic: · status. (See Item DNM-1
in HRC status report of HRC Low-income Housing
Status Report of January 15, 1968). This appears
to be the outgrowth of that suggestion.
Frankly, I do not believe another project,
all under Turnkey, would be any more successful
in this location than the first one, as it
would of necessity be occupied by people all
of whom would be in the low-income group. A
mixed program development on this location would
have a much better chance of success.
Although single family houses can legally
be developed under Turnkey, the 18,000 sq. ft.
lots proposed for this purpose is simple not
practical. The majority of the area is now
zoned R-5, minimum requirement for which is
F ORM 25- 15

lots consisting of 7,500 sq. ft. For Turnkey
development the minimum lot size for singlefamily houses could appropriately be reduced
to s,ooonsq. ft., instead of being increased
to 18,000 sq. ft.
If single-family houses should be developed,
appropriate for a 18,000 sq. ft. lot, they would
not qualify for Public Housing and would not be
successful in the sub-division with Turnkey
apartments and duplexes, whereas less pretentious
houses and lot size might be.
In summary, I feel that there is
justification for reconsideration of this site
for a multi-program housing development, but
not as a 100% Turnkey project.

Atlanta Housing Authority
808 Hurt Building
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mr. Boggs:
I would like to propose to the Atlanta Housing Authority that you reconsider a possible "turn-key" site, with the general concept of a subdivision
development for Land Lot 245 of the 14th District of Fulton County. As
you will recall, this is the same area of the Sewell Road Project of last
fall where we were turned down on our application for A-1 zoning, primar ily due to the efforts of S.W.A.P.
However, we believe that we can control some 130 plus acres and using the
present zoning could deve lop a "turn- key sub-division" which would include
approx imately 130 multi-family garden units; approxima tely 300 units of
two-family "duplex " units and some place in the neighborhood of 125 single
family residenc es (18,000 square foot lots). Our initial concept would
also allow for a schoo l site and park site in the overall development
scheme, the school site to be offered at residential price to the schoo l
board and the park site o f approximit ~ ly 8 acres to be donat e d at $1.00
to the Parks Department.
We are awaiting your reaction to this general idea before we technically
tie up the land and employ a professional land planner. It would b e our
general concept to deve lop this in approx ima t e ly three stages, with some
of each size and type units develop e d in each st age.
Please let me hear from you concerning this possibility and I realize
that any comme nt on your part would b e compl e tely .inofficial.

Re:
Gilbert Gardens - Ralph Pass ' s
letter of June 7, 1968, in response
to Mayor Allen ' s letter of May 31, 1968 .
Gentlemen:
Concerning the status of above-named project, the estimates have
not been approved by HUD and therefore·the developer's price of $4,028,775
is still only a tentative figure and subject to change . Assuming that
approval is imminent, we must then request additional money from HUD
to cover revised charges due to changes after the letter of intent .
In view of these facts it is improbable that a contract will be signed
by June 17, 1968.

Pr oposeq Neighborhood Devel opment Program for 1970.
Mr. Howard Openshawp Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Auth~

The Program contains eight neighborhoods:

New Areas


Maps and stati st ical summary indic a ting the proposed acti on program in individual areas was discuss e d. In summary, the 1970 ND? Program proposes the
acquisition of 922 parc e ls of l and, relocation of 1392 families and individuals, demoli t ion of 922 structures, rehab i litation of 830 structures and
disp osition of 116 acres of l and.
As a hous ing r e source for families displaced in the 1970 program, the Housing Authority wi ll compl e t9 and h ave ready for occupancy 2033 public housing
units and 650 dwe lling units for fam ilie s of low and modera te income.
The gross proj e ct cost of the 1970 NDP program is 27.4 milli on dollars. The
fede ral capital grant requested is 20.7 million, the local share is 8.5
million, 7.3 million include s non -cash grants-in-aid to be provide d by the
City and 1.2 million in cash tojbe provided by the Board of Regents . Following HUD approva l of additi on section 112 cre dits of 1.1 million dol l ars,
the ca s h re qui red by the Boa rd of Regents will be reduce d to $165,880.
On September 23, 1969 , the Department of Hous ing and Urban De velopme nt a dvised the Atl anta Housing Author ity that $24, 000,000 h a s been established
as the amount ava ilable ·for the 1970 activity o f the six Nei ghborhood Developmen t Programs now underway in Region I II . Thi s represents 45.9% of
the federal capital grant f unds available in the Region for 1969.
The Regional office of HUD will allocate the available funds for 1970 NDP
activities on the basis of each City's needs 9 its record of performance,
and its ability to postpone some ac tiviti es until a subsequent year.

Mr. Cecil Alexander, Chairman
Hous i ng Resources Coimni ttee
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dear Mr. Alexander :
At i t s l ast meeting on September 24 the panel adopt ed the fol l owing plan
for ·i ts act i vities b etween October and January . The p lan is based on the assumption that the winner of the mayoralty election wi l l want to continue Mayor
Allen ' s work to improve housing in the city. Wherever possible the plan includes only short t erm goals which are close to realization because the possib ility exists that the committee will not continue. It will be manifestly
unfair to r aise the hopes of clients and then be unable to complete the work _
whi ch was started .
Code s and· Code Restrictions
·D
The study of specific points in existing codn~ should continue. Mr . Thomas
Gib son, an Urb an Corps intern, completed a brief survey of the contents of the
codes during the summer . His report has been transmitted to the chairman . In
the opinion of this panel, his findin gs are typical of the probJ.ems which the
codes present to small builders in Atlanta . The panel recommends that his report be accept ed by the HRC and transmitted to Mr . Wofford for action. The
panel is aware that Mr . Gibson was not a technical specialist in codes, but his
findings are based on a literal reading of the codes, something which must be
done if the codes are to be interpreted individually by ea ch building inspector.
The Atlanta Housing Authority is planning the purchase and installation of
2~-0 mobile homes which will have be en manufactured in compliance with the city
codes. The use of these units represents a major departure for the city and one
that may signal a breakthrough in the ac cept ance of modular construction. The
panel plans to monitor the use of these mobile homes.
The Plumbing Advisory Board has agreed to a trial of pastic piping in drain,
waste and vent applicat ions in a single family home in the city. The panel i_s
interested in observing the reaction of the public to the progressive action of
the Plumbing Advisory Board. It wishes to commend the board for being receptive
to technical advances . It also reminds the users of this innovation that it is
- incumbent upon them to establish the consumer acceptance of this product now
that -the board has taken action to make its use acceptable.

New Methods and Materials for Construction
The panel wishes to recognize the efforts of Urban East particularly those
of Mr, Edward Benson and the volunteer staff from the various city, county and
state agencies ,-1hich made it possible for the city to prepare a proposal under
Op@rati.Gn BreakthrGugh.
The panel is alsG aware gf twg p:i;-;i,v=;i,te prgr,oo o,li; vilLLch ·
offer. interesting possibilities for the de sign and construction of housing in
the city if they are funded by Hl.JD. The panel plans to remain abreast of Operation Breakthrough a nd advise the city- of ways in which it can benefit from that
program . .
Housing in the Model Cities
The panel notes with approval the decision of Mr. Johnson to limit further
studies of area problems and emphasize the construction of housing within the
funding now available. After conversation with local home builders, the panel
has determined that relatively little residential building is underwa y in the
city. Thi s mea ns that the construction capabilities of these contractors are
avail able for use in the Mode l Cities. Conversely, most of the construct ion is
in apartment houses which require other skills. Therefore, the panel recommends
that the Mode l Cities staff concentr ate on getting individua l town house, patio
house and low rise construction start ed in the near future whil e contra cting
companies are open for competitive bidding to ensure fair u se of the available
funds.
The· panel remai ns interested in the early :ilnpl ementation of' the a rmature
study as a means of controlling the expenditure of available funds. However, the
erection of homes should not be deferred until completion of this study. It is
regretable that funding was not ava ilable at an earlier date but it is imperative
that the study be completed as soon a s possible , even though it is during the
erection of some units rec ommended by the Eric Hill study. If its services are
needed, the panel ·will a s sist the Model Ci ties in the selection of de signs or
construction methods suitable for the area.
In summary , the panel recommends that the work of the Housing Resources
Committee be continued by the next administration. A pr oposed letter f or Mayor ·
Allen to deliver to his suc cessor on th i s point is attached. In the interim
between election and the completion of Mayor Allen's term, the committee should
reappraise its charges and recommend those to be considered f or continuation under
the new mayor.

�.. -Dear Mr.
As you know, our city ha s a l arge and growing demand for housing for all i ncome
groups.
I am aware of the needs of all of the citizens for adequate housing at a
price proportional to their ability to pay.
My
pTogram to increase the supply of
housing- with this goal in mind is just now bearing fruit o I most earne stly recommend its continuance under your admini stTation.
The Housing Re sources- Cornmitt ee, made up of many volunteers who have uns elfishly
given me their time and effor t, ha s been my met hod of keepi ng track of progr e ss in
the hou s ing prograrn.
Since many of the members of the cormnittee are fr ee of politica l
bia s, I have f ound it useful to have them investigate and report t o me on matters too
politica l ly de licate for my per s ona l intervention.
t echnique for a ccomplishing these de licate t asks
lose.
The commi t t ee ha s developed a
that I woul d hate t o see the city
I s t rongly recommend that you consi der continuing thi s method of operating
when this t ype of problem ar i ses.
But, specifica lly , I r e commend that the cit y continue t o b e r e ceptive to new
i deas in des i gn and construction of houses so t hat we may benefit f r om the technology
whi ch is ava ilab l e from many sources . We have architects and engineers on t he
committee who can advis e you imparti a lly on t hese mat t ers.
The problem of codes and
r est r ict i ve t rade pract ices has been minimi zed in Atlanta , but we are still t roubled
by t he lack of uniformit y between our codes and t hos e of surrounding areas,
This
often prevents us fr om obta ining maximum participation in hous ing contract s b ecause
the cont ractors who mi ght b id ar e unfamiliar with or won ' t work with Atlanta codes .
I am satis fie d t hat Mr . Wofford,once he has a firm hand on hi s sta ff of building
inspect ors,will be able to a ss i st y ou in relieving thi s problem .
It is not nearly
as s evere now as it would be in a period of frantic pome building l i ke that which has
occurred i n other administrations .

The Model Cities program must move ahea d faster than it is presently goin g .
You have an experienc ed staff in th e Mod e l Citi e s program and I recommend tha t
you insist on performa nce from it.
Ma ny studies h ave been on the area's needs.
It is essential that action be t a ken now to s a tisfy th em.
Atlanta Housing Authority ha s received a great deal of criticism, much of
it from people who are unaware of the total job which the authority has done.
The use of relocatabl e homes in Bedford - Pine a nd the .pl anned use of mobile home s
to further ea s e the sho r tage of lqw income housing durin g redevelopme nt are but
two of the id e as which- typify the work of th i s group.
I recommend th a t you
continue to urge them to consid e r new idea s on speeding up the job of providing
a decent home to everyone under t h e i r jurisdiction.
I have enjoyed the opportuni t y of crea ting a bett er environme nt for our
citizens.
Wh e n I loo k a t an ar ea li ke Thomas ville and con trast it with Cabb age-
town I c annot help bu t f eel tha t we ar e on right track. All we ne ed is mo r e s p eed.
Even t h ough I s ha ll be out of off i c e , I do n 't e xpe ct t o stop b e i ng conc erned
for our c iti z ens .
If th er e i s any i n which I c a n be o f a s s is tanc e t o you in
providing be tter hous ing , pl eas e fee l f ree t o c a ll up on me.

PLUNBING
Consid ering the present t echno logy in the ~rade , the At l a nta Plumb ing
Code appear s to be over ly r estrictive i n only two basi c areas ,
..-:_;
concer ns plastic dr a in , waste and vent pipe .
The first
The use of this pipe i s cur-
rently under consideration by the plumbing advis ory board and will h opefu l ly
be permitted in t h e near f uture,
plumbing t ree s.
The s econd area concerns prefabricated
Though the code nevet s pecifically proh ibits these tree s,
it does require th at a ll plumbing to be done by authodzed At-l an ta Plumbers.
Since mos t of the prefabricated trees are manufactured outside of the cit ~
it is virtua lly impossib l e f or th em to c omply with this provi sion.
~ .
Another
restrictive rule re qu ires that al l plumbing be left exposed for inspection
on the site,
Th is means that a prefabricated wall, which 'can greatly r edu ce
costs, canno t be used because the plumbing would be inclosed within it.
The
problems lie in these areas then:
a)
Plastic drain, waste , and vent p~pe is not considered.
b)
Not allowing even r ough assemblff ou tside of the ci ty.
c)
No special provisions for inspection of prefabricated walls .
ELECTRICAL
Far fewer objections are voiced on the El ectrical Code th an either the
building or the plumbing codes.
The objec t ions that are encou;tered concern
the necessity of putting washing machines and drye rs on separate circuits,
and by the same token, diswashers and garbage di sposers mus t also be separ ated.
The only other objection concerned the prohibition of underground feeder and
branch circuits.
The objections on the Electrical Code were then:
a)
Inability to put washing machines and ~ryers on the.
s ame circuit.
b)
Inabi lity to put dishwashers and garb age disposers
on the same circuit.
c)
Illegality of underground feeder and branch circ u its.
BUILDING
At this time the Atlanta Building Code exists in two forms, the 1961
edition and its several ammendments and the totally revised edition which
will go into effect on January 1,· 1970.
This revised edition contains many
provisions that the local builders have requested and is consequently quite

up t o date .
There are however, . t wo glaring items that seemed to have been
ove rlooked.
The first conc erns the spacing of trusses.
Prefabricated roof
'
trusses h ave become a grea t cost reducing factor in house construction , and
the genera lly a cc ep ted spacing is t we n ty- f our inches,
The Atl anta code,
apparently failing to recognize the wide spriad use of
these t r usses, refers
to them by their individual components, that is, rafters and joists .
The
code cites exampl es where r afters may be pl a ced twenty-four inches apart but
the greatest sp acing for a joipt is sixteen inches,
ricated truss es to be sp aced at sixteen inches.
roof sheathing.
"',_
Thus requir(ng prefab-
The other problem concerns
The nat ionally accep ted thickness for roof sheati_ing is 3/8
inch, whereas the Atlanta Code specifies 5 / 8 inch,
It is in these t wo areas,
then, that the problem iie:


-..


a)
Sixteen instead of twen ty-four inch spacing for prefabricated roof trusses.
b)
5/ 8 inch instead of 3/ 8 inch roof 5hoathing,
Another very important problem which exis ts in all of Atlanta ' s codes
is requiring all of the labor to be performed by craftsmen licensed in
Atlanta.
This great i y limits the amount of pref::.abrication done in fa ctories
outs ide of Atlanta even ·.:·.though prefabrication c an substantially lower the
cost of a house.
For example, bathroom assemb li es can be mass produced, not
unlike an automobile, on an assembly line,
These units, including l avatories ,
water closets , showers, tubs and electrical connections are then transported
to the building site by truck.
When the unit is installed in the house it is
v irtua lly impossible to tell that it was not built in the conventional manner,
yet the cost is substantially lower.
nique.
At l anta's codes do not permit this tech-
Since the plumbing and electrical work was qot done within the city
limits and by licensed Atlanta craftsmen, the unit is prohibited.
It seems
that if the unit were built according to a nationa l standard . that it should
be allowed.
By inspection at the factory it could be determineJthat the unit
would be every bit as safe .and durable as a bathroom assembled on the site.
Safety and durability are intended to be the major considerations of a building
code.

o! Housing and Urban Development
Waahington., D. Cc
Deai· Mr. Sec retary:
On October 8, 1969, at request o f th s Commitlee, a presentation w as
made to the Committee by a representative of the Houaing Authority of the City
of Atlanta (the City's Agent for <.:ar rying out the Urban. Renewal Prog1·am) on
proponed activities for 1'}70 in the City's Neighborhood Dcveloprn.ent Program.
Copy of S\.trnma1·y ia att<lched (Encl. l).
Thia proposed program includes rather extensive a ctivities in the
five exioting NDP areas and also minimum acquisition in three additional a1:e::as.
Two of these , i.e. Lightning and Plunkettown are ve r y depressed residential
a1·ea.u, which. this C omrnittce h:is been strongly promoting for acquisition
commencing in B70. in order to 1·id the City of these specific pockets of very
dilapidated residential slums .
0
The City has made a major effort in developing thls proposed program
and ia prepared to meet the local share of lhc Net Project Coot, as indicated i11
the attached.
However, letter recently received from Region III of HUD (copy
attached) indicates a draa~ic cut back in the anticipated Federal c apital grant
funds with which to fin.a.nee the Federal ohare of Atlanta's proposed Neighborhood
Development Program for 1970. This would mean a s evere blow to Atlanta 1 D
1970 NDP program and great di sappointment to the Project Area Committees
(PACs) and other citizena of the area.a involved, with \.vhom the Housing Authority,
- the Citr Planning Department and this Committee have been working closely for
so long. A drastic cut back now in proposed activitie s would be disastrous to
morale and neighbo1·hood aspi rations.
