l.
Atlanta Housing Authority would use the normal urban renewal procedure
through on and 'expe dited " basis. The schedule i s estimated on optimum
time intervals as are the other schedules.
2.
If the project puts in the basic streets and utilities, they would be
constructed at project cost which could be more than offset by Noncash Grant-in-Aid Credits.
J.
-The t wo major credits are for two schools: one at $1,000,000 - 100%
eligible and one at $2,000,000 - 10 to 50%eligible.
4.
Some comparatively small credits would be eligible from park, bridge,
ramp and other items probably in the range of $50-100,000.

�2.
Will Dlsposition be 221 (d)
(3), 202 , only?
a.
221 ( d) ( 3) development would prevent any private development
being fin anced by other FHA or conventional finance. This would
prev~,nt an extensive eco nomic mix in this new area. However ,
higl{ income families now occupy the Single Family Portion of the
Thomasville Project.
b.
To split the area between two programs will require definite
boundaries fo r each , so that ea ch can be appra i sed separately.
c.
221 ( d ) ( 3) would insure l ow and moderate income occupants·.
d.
221 (d) (3) would require special appra isal techniques (write down of l and price ).
e.
Commercial areas must be designated regardless of other
consideration for appra i sal purposes.
f.
I f public housing is involved ( this is at the present ruled out ),
this boundary would have to b e delineated. ( Turn key or conventional).
g.
Can the developer be non-profit , limited dividend , Co -op, or
other, or will it be limited to one .
�3. Who builds primary streets and utilities?
a.
For the developer to bui ld streets and utilities would increase
the cost per dwelling unit.
b.
221 ( d) (3) might affect the decisio ns .
c.
Approximat ely
months would be required for the City or Authority
to build the primary street system sufficiently to provide access .
However , construction can begin prior to advertising sale of land.
d.
A developer could build the streets at his rate of need but probably

no more r apidly than the City or the Authori ty . It would however,
force scheduling of construction to be tied to street construction
schedule ( acc e ss ). This may not be pertinent.
,.
e.
Authority constr uction of the streets would co st the City
approximat ely 1/3.
f.
Bridge credits would be affected.
g.
Cost of streets and utilities estimated at$

�4.
When should street loc ati ons be pinned down ( invol ves savi ng s of
approximat ely 1- 3½ months )?
a.

Dear Mayor Allen:
I am writing at the requ e st of Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., in reply to
your letter of May 31, 1968, regarding the progress of the above captioned
project. Please be advised that the Application-Project Mortgage Insurance
(FHA Form 2013) with preliminary plans and sp e cifications were submitted
to the Atla nta Insuring Offi c e of the Fed era l Housing Ad ministration this
morning, June 3, 19 68. The Federal Housing Administration has e x pressed
its eagernes s and willingness to e x p e dite th e processing of this case in
order to provide th is ne e ded housing at the earliest possible date .
A considera ble amount of time and effort has been e x p e nded by the
Ebe ne zer Ba ptist Church and its repres e ntative s to insure the deve lopm e nt
of a resid e ntia l community which e mbodies the most ad vance d thinking in
multifa mily liv i n g.
Our deve lopment plan provides for a high ris e buildin g con s isting of twe l v e
stories, pre s enting a pa norama vi e w of downtow n Atl a n ta , th e expre ss
ways and the spaciou s spl e ndor of the City . This i s the fir s t atte mpt to
de velop a high ri se cons tru c tion under Sectio n 2 2l(d) (3) of the Na tiona l
Housing Ac t i n th e City of Atlan ta . With the i ncreas ing a waren e s s of th e
ne e d for hi gh r:ise residenti a l faciliti es , it is i mpera t i ve tha t low to
modera te i ncome fam ilies , especia lly fa milies with out children , are pro vid ed for i n h i gh ri se constructio n in C entra l City. Larg er fam ili e s will
fi nd spacio us accommodation s in 2 , 3 or 4- bedroom s i ze u nits with the
3 and 4 bedroom units designed with 1 1/2 baths . All low rise units are
town houses and garden type, two -s tory wa l k-up apartments, w i th amp l e

play areas and enclosed patios. A pedestrian walkway, free of vehicle
traffic, allows for safe access throughout the development.
A community shopping center consisting of approximately 7,000 square
feet form an integral part of this development concept which will provide
the daily essentials for residents and the general community. In addition,
an office building complex of approximately 3200 square feet, is incorporated in this community center, providing space for professional
offices and convenient type stores and shops. A day nursery designed to
accommodate preschool-age children of working mothers has been given
special study and the result of this intensive investigation regarding the
special needs of these children are reflected in our day-care center. A
coin-operated laundry facility is also provided. Our development plan
utilizes open spaces and green belts in order to provide a character of
individuality and sense of pride and appreciation. The total 19 3 unit
complex will be served by central air conditioning and heating.
We feel that Martin Luther King, Jr. , Village will be an exciting and
important addition to the City of Atlanta and a major step forward in the
development of residential communities in urban areas.

Mr. Howard Openshaw
Director of Redevelopment
Atlanta Housing Authority
824 Hurt Building
Atlanta, Georgia
30303
Dear Mr. Openshaw:
This is with reference to your letter of June 4, 1968
outlining several objections to our plans for the development of Parcels E-la and B-2. As I understand it, these
objections represent the position both of your office and
that of the City Planning Commission.
I should like to take exception, first, to the second
paragraph of your letter, which states in part that, "While
certain elements of the original plan have been retained ....
other features on which the development competition award
was made have been eliminated, reducing the original extraordinary site plan proposal to the average run-of-the-mill
development." That statement is unjustified as to the facts,
and, if it is an expression of aesthetic judgement, not one
with which we agree or respect.
I
I
I
Second, I should like to point out that your action in
advising the Federal Housing Administration that our plans
were not acceptable has resulted in their refusal t6 issue
ready-to-go commitments. This may mean the loss, to . us and
. to the City of Atlanta, of the 22l(d)(3) reservations for
this project and, if 22l(d)(3) money is, as we are advised,
exhausted, it may be some time before new reservations are
obtained if we lose these.
A far more advisable course for you to have followed
(in terms of safeguarding the 22l(d)(3) reservations for
this project) would have been to permit FHA to issue their
commitments and in the period preceeding initial mortgage
closing, work with us to achieve that which you feel is
necessary. Your control of our going and our coming is
so complete in every respect that with or without the
commitment we cannot proceed into construction until you

are completely satisfied with our work. You chose, however,
to pursue a course which places the project's development
in . jeopardy .... a needless and disheartening risk and delay.
i
J
Third, I should like to point out that we are no less
interested than are you or any other City Agency concerned
with this project, · in producing as superior a development as
possible.· Our competition submission was not a pipe dream nor
did we approach it on the basis of winning a beauty contest
thinking to make it work later, as is often the case.
I would
imagine that we will be with this project long after most of
the City officials concerned with it now have left the scene
and its success, both as an investment and in the achievement
of our social objectives, depends entirely upon its desirability
to potential tenants.
It was recognized publicly, by you and by us during the
course of the competition, that detailed planning, architecture
and fiscal analysis would require certain changes, but that
the major concepts presented would be preserved. We have
!
acted in . good faith in pursuing our work and those changes which
I
have been made, in practically every single, instance of concern
to you, have related to four major factors:
'
A.
The severe cost restrictions governing the 22l(d)(3)
program which have become even more severe over this
past year by virtue of the money market and tremendous
increases in construction costs.
B.
Detailed cost analysis of certain of our original
development proposals (such as rental town housing
in Parcel E-la and elements of site development)
have proved to be economically infeasible in terms
of their effect upon rentals.
C.
The need to provide the full number of units
originally proposed when certain areas, upon
detailed site planning, proved to be economically
infeasible for development or, proved to contain
conditions of which we were not advised
(such
as County ownership of certain lands within the
proje c t area) •

D.
The rentals and carrying charges which the housing
market with which we are concerned can absorb.
Lastly, _ I should like to point out that most of those
elements of our work which you now question ·; have been known
to your office and to the City Planning Commission for several
months.
It is baffling, to say the least, that at this late
and critical date you choose to present your comments.
Now, as to the substance of your letter, I shouH like
to make the following brief observations which will be enforced
by oral argument and graphic material presented at our meeting
on June 11, 1968.
I
• I
· J
I
As to your item (a), we do not agree that the geometric
arrangement of buildings does not provide interesting and
varied pedestrian spaces. The changes we have made in
Parcel E-la with regard to buildings placement are not major.
If you are making an aesthetic judgement, we agree that the
original concept is better, but not that our revision does
it great violence. Additionally, some study of our building
placement would have indicated the extreme topographic conditions which account for many of our shifts in building
_.location, conditions we originally felt able to resolve, but
in the face of economics, could not.
In this regard, I sh9uld
point out that retaining walls were the first to go when the
dollar situation became extreme and this fact mandated a shift
in building, parking and driveway location .

As to your item (b), rental townhouses in Parcel E-la were '
eliminated solely for reasons of economy and FHA guidance here _:
was quite convincing. They proved too costly to build and
could not be absorbed by the rental market with which we
are concerned . Eliminating townhouses eliminated the structured
and disciplined flow of pedestrian traffic, but that function
can be provided by strong and adequately designed pedestr i an
pathways .

The original competition drawing did in fact show
townhouses step up or down the grades.
It was later
recommended by your office and concurred in by us, that
the B-2 site be converted to all co-op townhouses which
more fully and economically served the market for townhouse
occupancy.
In addition, FHA requirements regarding percentage of grade around the E-la townhouses parking ·lots
which served these steep townhouse had severe cost implications.
Also, the cost of producing such a steep townhouse
proved to be so high as to approach or exceed the maximum
rentals under the 22l(d)(3) program as follows:

As to your item (c), we agree that the community plaza
. was a major and highly desirable element of our original
proposal. We eliminated it and distributed the functions
elsewhere throughout the project in that a part of Parcel
E-lb and all of E-lc cannot now be developed for housing due
to certain facts not brought to our attention during the
competition. We, therefore, sought to recapture some of the
lost units by placing them on the community plaza site.
However, we are quite willing to eliminate that housing and
to reinstate the original community plaza proposal, but you
must recognize that this will mean a net loss of approximately
40 dwelling units.

Additionally, it should be noted here that the new
centrally located community recreation area was not only
approved by the Planning Commission and the full Board of
Aldermen in our Community Unit Plan submission, but was also
approved by the Atlanta Housing Authority.

new church site location plan was forwarded to both the
Housing Authority and Collier Gladdin's office on April
22, 1968 and no objection was raised at that time.
As to your item (d), changes in relationship of peripheral
drives and parking areas to the housing units they serve, were
made necessary by detailed studies which could not have been
performed during the competition and by other changes such
as building location and elimination of retaining walls.
However, not by any stretch of the imagination can we understand the charge that the basic concept and relationship of
driveways and parking to housing units served, has been violated.
As to the statement that a massive "sea of asphalt" parking
area, remote from housing units is created, we point out that
this is not the fact except perhaps in one instance.
Even
though the number of parking spaces has been increased to serve
a larger number of housing units the parking solution in our
proposal is superior to the original in many instances and in
fact results in eliminating seas-of-parking. The statment that ,·
parking areas are remote from housing units is absolutely
unfounded.
Except in two instances they are all in the same
relationship as originally proposed and improved in many
instances -- at FHA insistence.
I '
As to your item (e), the concept of uninterrupted pedestrian streets is maintained.
As a matter of fact, it is
improved in both -Parcels E-la and B-2.
Site plans showing
the use of this particular street has been in jour possession
since March.
As a matter of fact, its utilization resulted
as much from your suggestion that it be used and dedicated
to the City so that approximately $30,000 in site improvement
credits would accrue to the City, as it did from our desire to
eliminate the cost of constructing additional roadway.
'I
'l
,
·
' '.
',
As to your item (f), the pedestrian and vehicular traffic
between Parcels B-2 and E- la will provide for controlled
street crossing as originally proposed.

As to your i _tem (g) , we have rethought the placement of
church sites within building clusters in view of our meetings
with church groups which established that the churches will
attract members both from within and without the project area. ·
·To place churches within the clustered areas would be to introduce large amounts of parking which we consider undesirable.
As to your item (h), ·the geometric arrangement of Parcel
B-2 not only does relate to topography, it is governed by
topography. We do propose a cluster arrangement of buildings
with much of the site open and existing ttees preserved.
The statement that the entire site is covered with buildings
and parking areas is completely unsupported by the facts
and rather contentious. Coverage is approximately 20% for
all buildings, roads and parking areas. The original plan
proposed 331 dwelling units and 450 parking spaces. The present
one proposes 250 dwelling units and 375 parking spaces -on the same acreage.

This case is making a mockery of the Housing Code_and
"In Rem" Orelin nee of the City of Atlanta . I as personally
involved in enforcement procedures against these properties,
as Director of Urban Re ewal , during the period of 1961-64 .
Subsequently, as Supervisor of Inspection Services in the
Building Department, I discussed this case at length personally
with Judge Whitman of the Fulton County Su ior Court and with
r . Robert H. Cleveland, receiver for the executors of the
Estate of rs . E. c. Johnson, deceased .
I recommend that these properties be personally inspected
by any one involved with this c se and that the best legal
talent available be utilized in an 11 out effort to resolve
this case in behalf of the City .

Dear Satt:
Of the several categories of low-income housing to meet the
City's five year goal, Public Housing, including Turnkey
development, is the category in which we are currently most
behind.
Locating suitable sites for this type development is extr eme ly
difficult and experienc e to date indicates that we cannot afford
to leave most of this problem up to the hopeful developers.
In order to speed up construction of the Public Housing units
which we have reserved, I would like for the Housing Authority
to assume responsibility for development, by the Housing
Authority itself (old method), of 1, 000 units of our current
reservations, in addition to the Public Housing units currently
planned for the existing Thomasville Urban Renewal project,
the Bedford - Pine Urban Renewal project and Honor Farm No . 1
site.
We will endeavor to assist you in every way feasible 1n
obtaining suitable sites for these additional units.
Sincerely yours,
Ivan Allen, Jr.

P.S. 126 AND HlGHBRIDGE HOUSE - This facility, the first in the
Fund's program, combines an elemen tary school for 1,4 11 children with 400
apartments for micldlc-incorne families in the Bronx.

The Fune! is the ·first agcn~y of its kind
111
the country authorizecl to fin ance
public schools in combinecl-occu1:iancy structures. Although its purpose is new,
it is a traditio nal form of governm ~nt institution establishecl to fin a nce public
and quasi-public facilities.
•·
The rapid increase in the number of public benefi t corporations in urban ized
sta tes like New York. during the past twenty years has parall eled the n eecl for
increased capital construction ::;.t costs exceecling liniitations ·on public debt.
Simila rly, New York City.'s fi scal lim itations, toge ther with its need for school
constru ction, generatecl th e crea tion of_the Educational Construction Fund.
The concept was clevelopecl by Lloyd K. Garrison while h e was President of
the Boarc.!_ of Education. H e saw the public benefit corporation as an appropriate
vehicle to serve both the City a nd th e school system. " ' ith a gra nt from the
Tacon ic Foundation to underwrite- research and bill dra fting, he initiated th e
action that subsequentl y " ·on the endorsement· of Governor R ockefeller a nd .
J\fayor Lindsay and th e support of the L egislature during the 1966 session.
The Fune! is h eadecl by the President of th<.: Board of Edu cation wl10 is designa ted by hJ\v :ts Chairman. Four additio nal m embers of th e Boarcl of Educaticn, appointed by the Presidcn, , serve th e Fund during their terms o[ office
on the Boa rd. Fonr tru stees, appoin ted by the i\fayo r, serve term s se t in itia ll y at
two, three, four or five yea rs. T h eir su ccessors will all ~erve for fi ve years.
The present trustees bring to the d irecti on of the Fund's development and
fin ance operillions a combi ned background in a ll areas essenti al to th e success
of this n ew venture -education, housing, labor, commerce an d finance.

The two portions of the combinecl-occupancy building will be d es ig ned and
constructed as a singl e proj ect.
The Fund's acti viti es generally start with a site designated by th e Board of
Education for a ne\\· school. Th ey inclucle dcYeloping appropri a te con cepts
for combined me of these sites, promoting deYeloper interest in undertaking
construction, ancl coordinating with th e Board of Education durin g the desig n
and cons~ruction of the school. Local School Boards will b e consul tccl, and all
combined-occupancy structures will be appro\'ed b)' th e Board of Education
as well as by th e Funcl, thu s assuring th a t the program directly serves the
school system.
The Fund hopes to a tt ra ct as spo nsors qu alifi ed person s and orga niza tion s
interested in participa tin g m th e program , including community and other
non-profit g roups.
School sites already mrn ecl or b eing acquired by the City will be publicly
adverti sed by the Fund if suitable for th e developm ent of combin ed-o ccupancy
structures. Proposal s for th ese sites will b e invited from potenti a l sponsors and
devel op ers. In addition to info'rm a ti o n describing th e site, th e Board of Education's r equirem ents for each sch ool will be made availabl e for the preparation
of a proposal.
Evalu a ti o n of the p ro p os al s will b e b ased on several criteri a, including th e
comp a tibility of th e non-sch oo l use, th r in come t 0 h e derived th erefro m, and
th e finan cial ability and experi ence of th e appli ca nts.

will be governccl by th e public interest.
Eventually, om1ership of the site and the school portion of the combinedoccupancy structure reverts to the qity. Air ri ghts to the non-school portion
will be leased or sold to the developer.
.
The developer will h ave full responsibility for th e construction of th e school
as well as th e non-school_ portion of th e building. Although the three ma3or
subcontrac tors (plumbing; heating, ventilating an cl a ir conditioning; electric
work) will be selec ted by p ubli c bidding, as required by law, instead of by
the inform al negot iation usual in priv':.t~ ,rnrk, th e winning bidders will be
made responsible to th e genera l contractor or d eveloper. The major ach·antage
of a single construction contract has thu s been preserved by establishing a,
singl e responsibility for the timely and satisfactory comple tion of th e w'ork.

The Fund's bonds are expec ted to be hi ghly m a rk etabl e at a fav orable rate
becau se of an unu sual security feature I~ additi o n to a capital reserve fund
cover _debt service for any succeeding year on all outsta nding bonds, as is
customary for public ben efit corporatio ns, th e law authorizes a first li en on
to
State aid to New York City for th e support of th e public school system. A
call on State aid would be mad e only in th e improbable event th at the capi tal
reserve fund shoul d at some time be insuflicicn t to meet debt service and the
· City did not rcpl enisl1 it to the amount requi red. H owever, th e provis:on
assures at all tim es th e so lvency _o f the Fund and th e security of its bonds.
D ebt service on the Fund's notes and bonds will be paid from income.
There w ill b e three sources:
I. Paymen ts for th e sale or lease of air rights
The Fund will rece iYc fro m t!1e devel oper an annu al payment, based on
fair m arke t value, for th e sale or lease of ~he ai r rights over the s::hool.
2. Pay m ents in lieu of taxes
Instead of paying real estate taxes to th e City, th e developer will m ak e
equivalent payments to th e Fund for a p eri od_ of time not less th an th e p eriod
of th e serial bonds issued to fin ance site a nd construction costs of th e school.
3. R en(a ls for th e sch oo ls
This paym ent is expected to be nominal for th e majori ty of schools bui lt
111
combined-occupancy stru ct ures. vVhcnever th e income from th e di sposition o f
air rights an cl payincnts equi valent to real es tate taxes are sufficien t to coyer
d eb t service an d the Fund·s admin istra tive costs, th ere will be no need for
additional incom e. School renta ls will be req uired onl y for th ose structu res
tha t cannot mate suffi cient p aym ents to cover debt servi ce, such as tax-exempt
public faci li ti es and certa in kinds of non-profit housing.
· The bonds to be issu ed by the Fund arc lim ited to 40-ycar maturities, and
the notes to 5-ycar m a tu riti es. Th ey a re lega l investm ents for all organi za ti o ns
authorized to buy th e Sta te's bond s or other obliga tions, such as public bodies,
trust and msura n c;e compan ie., , b a nks and fiduciari es.

�.l..- ...

The major ponion of the program. is expected to provide new schools at
liule or no cost to the City. i\Jost residential and commercial structures are
SI a year. Some
.
will even yield a surplus, which can be used for the construction of additional
expected to yield enough income to p ermit_ a school rental of
schools or turn ::"cl over to the City.
Some combined-occupa ncy structures ,rill probably be built to meet the City's
social needs clc'spite their inab ility to produce enoi.1gh income to pay all 0£
the debt service - those providing rnodcrat;-rent housing, for example. In these
instances, school rentals will be no high er than the annual cost of a comparable new school.
The Fund h as been designed for considerable fl exibility in its operations.
Because a wide variety 0£ commel-cial, public, social and residential uses can
be accommod a ted in combined-occupancy buildings, many sections of the City
offer appropria te si tes. Combined use is adaptable to small structures thc1.t
can blend into existing, cohesive communities. Jt is also applicable on a la rge
scale to major redevelopm ent areas, including urban renewal and l\Iodel Cities
projects. It can b ecome on e of tne City's imponant plann ing tools during the
n ext d ecade to create econom ic, social :rnd pl:ys:ca l renewd while carrying
out its prime pu rpose of creating additional sch ools.

Atlanta, Georgia ·
Gentlemen:
Building Systems Development, Inc. has been awarded Prime Contract
No. H97 l by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
to develop the "In-City Experimental Housing Research and Development
.Program" for 25 model cities . . This program is. designed as an experimental project to develop new methods of pi"oviding low cost housing.
The program itself is divided into two phases -- the first taking five
weeks during which time the experimental program must be developed
with respect to specific cities with recommendations submitted to HUD
by June 15, 1968. The second phase calls for implementation of the
experimental program with construction commencing on individual
.
_ . _ _ ___proje_c;~s q ~ aLch J .,__19.69~pp:r:.oaches .whi.ch-are .developed in these
experimental projects will provide new building products, components,
systems or total buildings which will meet the needs of the city residents
· at a low cost.
It ·is obvious that successful approaches have an opportun ity of be i ng
implemented widely in model cities and throughout the country. In
fact, the program is directly related to Presid ent Johnson' s objective
of 6,000, 000 new or rehabilitated federally as siste d h ousing units for
lower income farnilies. The approach to this project is t o analyze the
various cities to determine their needs and their ability t o h ost different
social and technical experin~e ntal approaches to housing. Simultaneously;
we are looking to industry for new dev elopments in terms of produ c ts or
procedures which will meet the needs of people fo r low cost hous·ing
quickely.
We are, therefore, soliciting comp anies such as yours throughout
the country to determine whether or not there are appropri3.te building
systems , materials and construction ideilS which you would like to have
us consid er for use in the individual e x periments. If you wish to be
considered in this regard we would welcome receiving notice imm ediate ly
\

and desire full information on the product ideas and infoi:mation you
~ave in mind. We would be pleased to have the opportunity to evaluate
this information and assess the way in which various ideas of different
companies can be combined to P1eet the objective.


---All .information you submit to us .will be considered to have been submitted in respon.s e to this inquiry, will be ·submitted by us to the United


.States Government as infor~ation developed by us as a ;-esult of the
research and studies conducted under the above-mentioned Prime
- Gontra·ct No. H97 l, . and will be subject to and ·governed by the provisions
of Article V "Publication" and Article VI II Patents" of the Prime Contract.
Copies of Articles V and VI are enclosed. Your submission of information
to us will constitute your agreement with us to this effect.
During this period that we are preparing the Phase I report, preliminary
to submitting this report to HUD for the Phase 2 contract, we desire
V
that any work that we do to incorporate your material into an experimental
.--:-p rogram be considered confidential by you until the submission is made
to HUD.
- - ~l"-f_ you have information relating to other manufacturers with whom your
products are comp atible, we would also appr e ciate receiving this information. We specifi c ally desire complete inforrpation within a week,
including drawings, test data if any, photographs, and experience on
any precedents whe re i n the products you are suggesting w ere used. We
are interested in w h ether you have had experience wi t h or will require
code or zoning var i ances in order to use your p a rticular ideas, and
whether it is anticipated that there may be any problems with regard
to jurisdictional d is put es among installing building trades unions . Included as Attachment 2 is a list of the 25 model cities which we are
considering and a n y specific experience in these citi es wo'uld be of.
considerable interest .
The e x perimental p r ogram calls fo r the construction of perhaps 10 to
200 d w elling units in e a, ch city with the possibility of building substanti ally
more if it -..vill benefit the e x perim e nt . We would be interested t o receive
information on th e co s t of your compone n ts in the nearest mod e l city to
y our plant for 10, 20, 50, l 00 1 200, 500 or l, 000 d we lling uni t s. The
actu a l proj e cts w ifl be financed through e x isting fed e ral pro g rams . ·som e
m o nies w ill b e a v ail a bl e for e x p e ri men t a l cos ts . These w ill b e alloc ate d
on a cost benef i t basis.

We also need information regarding the number of units which you estimate
would be required using your material, product or system to approach the
point of optimum efficiency .
The. information on your products, systems or dwelling .units should also
-:-d ei.-C::r1be methods a11d tinie for installation and general procedures that
may be required at the building site.
Your interest in terms of distribution of products should be indicated
whether it be on a national basis or not . If there are specific cities in
which you have had e x p e rienc e work ing in the past and in which you would
like to work speci~icalJ.y
the forthcoming experimental program, please
indicate which one.s they are.

Urgently request your support on the Jonesboro Road site and East Lake
Golf Course No. 2 site as a vital part of the city's housing program.
You will recall that at the public hearing on East Lake No. 2 there
was no dpposition expressed except in the form of two persons
who asked questions regarding public facilities. The developer
has agreed to dedicate a 25 acre park on the site. Since the
cosi of entire tract for park use would run 1.8 million this approach
appears unrealistic and the present proposal will serve to preserve
considerable open land in addition to the park.
Our Commit-tee has voted unanimously to support these two projects
since they have both been judged in accordance with the city's new
land use plan.
I repeat we need your help and are relying on your favorable action.

The Developers have agreed to dedicate 25 acres to the City of
Atlanta as a park and to make an elementary school site available
to the School D epartment at nominal cost.
(f)
There was no opposition raised at the Public Hearing, April 4th,
on which date the Zoning Committee deferred action on the petition
and has not acted on it since.
(g)
On May 20th during the Alder:i;nanic Board meeting, the Ch9-irman
of the Zoning Committee (who had previously been out of the country)
expressed his personal opposition to th e proposed r e -zoning. No
official action was take n by the Boa rd of Ald e rmen.
Comment:
Both of the a bove indicat e d sites m eet all th e prescrib ed r e quir ements
for housing d eveloprne nts and are b a dly n ee d e d _in Atla nta • s curr ent low
and medium incorne housing program. Unl es s th e se site s can be utilized
in the program, there app e ars little chance of getting other sites approve d
which, tog e th e r with thes e , are e ss entia l to the success of the program .
