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

Locating suitable sites for this type development is extremely
difficult and experience 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

We will endeavor to assist you in every way feasible in
obtaining suitable sites for these additional units.

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
