This document sets forth the basic problems to be considered
in preparation for the development of the New-Town-In-Town program
in the Federal Surplus land from the Federal Pen. The Schedules

contained herein are optimum and probably are too tight to be met

by the agencies involved. However, this optimum scheduling gives

the soundest basis for the consideration of differences between

the various means of carrying out the project.

1. Who will administer the project?

l.a. Direct Sale By HUD To Developers

HUD states that they would expect the City to provide the land use plan,

assurances as to public facilities, review the developers proposals.

HUD would need Bureau of Budget approval of the method of sale and
would present the proposal to sell to the Bureau prior to making the award.
Each of these steps would consume a minimum of approximately 30 days or a

total of 60 days on this stage.

Under this method the Developer would put in the streets and utilities

and this cost would be reflected in rents or sales prices.
No non-cash credits involved.

Fed. Pen. to GSA to HUD is based on certain improvements (fences, etc.)

which only HUD can finance.

Can HUD acquire the ); non-gov't owned parcels? Leave them out?

1.c. HUD to AHA to Developer

Atlanta Housing Authority would use the normal urban renewal procedure
through on and 'éxpedited" basis. The schedule is estimated on optimum
time intervals as are the other schedules.

If the project puts in the basic streets and utilities, they would be
constructed at project cost which could be more than offset by Non-
cash Grant-in-Aid Credits. ;

The two major credits are for two schools: one at $1,000,000 - 100%
eligible and one at $2,000,000 - 10 to 50% eligible.

Some comparatively small credits would be eligible from park, bridge,
ramp and other items probably in the range of $50-100,000.

Will Disposition be 221 (d) (3), 202, only?


221 (da) (3) development would prevent any private development
being financed by other FHA or conventional finance. This would
prevent an extensive economic mix in this new area. However,
high income families now occupy the eangte Family Portion of the
Thomasville Project.

To split the area between two programs will require definite
boundaries for each, so that each can be appraised separately.

eel (da) (3) would insure low and moderate income occupants.

221 (d) (3) would require special appraisal techniques (write-
down of land price).

Commercial areas must be designated regardless of other
consideration for appraisal purposes.

If public housing is involved (this is at the present ruled out),
this boundary would have to be delineated. (Turn key or conven-

Can the developer be non-profit, limited dividend, Co-op, or
other; or will it be limited to one.

Who builds primary streets and utilities?

For the developer to build streets and utilities would increase
the cost per dwelling unit.

221 (d) (3) might affect the decisions.

Approximately 64 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.

A developer could build the streets at his rate of need but probably
no more rapidly than the City or the Authority. It would however,
force scheduling of construction to be tied to street construction
schedule (access). This may not be pertinent.

Authority construction of the streets would cost the City

~ approximately 1/3.

Bridge credits would be affected.

Cost of streets and utilities estimated at $ | .

lh. When should street locations be pinned down (involves savings of
approximately 1-33 months)?

ae If street is pinned down before advertising property:
(1) Would restrict the design of the development plan.

(2) Would define school and park sites so that costs and
credits could be firm.

(3) Would save approximately 1-33 months.

b. After streets are pinned down after advertising and decision on
developer: ;

(1) Would give freedom to the development plan.
©) Cost and credits would not be quite as firm.
(3) Would delay from 1-34 months before construction could be

started (would this be actual or would the architects use
up the time anyway)?
