1.c . HUD to AHA to Developer
1. Atlanta Housing Authority would use the normal urban renewal procedure through on and "expedited" basis. The schedule is 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 Non-cash Grant-in-Aid Credits.
3. 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.
4. Some comparatively small credits would be eligible from park, bridge, ramp and other items probably in the range of $50-100,000.

1* Site Improvements Designated in Planning
2* Advertise after Loan and Grant - Site Improvements on basis of bid
3* Pre-Advertise -- Site Improvements on basis of bid
2. Will Disposition be 221 (d) (3), 202, only?
a. 221 (d) ( 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 Single Family Portion of the Thomasville Project.
b. To split the area between two programs will require definite boundaries for each, so that each can be appraised separately.
c. 221 (d) (3) would insure low and moderate income occupants.
d. 221 (d) (3) would require special appraisal techniques (writedown of land price).
e. Commercial areas must be designated regardless of other consideration for appraisal purposes.
f. If public housing is involved (this is at the present ruled out), this boundary would have to be 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 build streets and utilities would increase the cost per dwelling unit.
b. 221 (d) (3) might affect the decisions.
c. Approximately 6½ 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 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.
e. Authority construction of the streets would cost the City approximately 1/3.
f. Bridge credits would be affected.
g. Cost of streets and utilities estimated at $______________________________.
4. When should street locations be pinned down (involves savings of approximately 1-3½ months)?
a. 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 1-3½ months.
b. After streets are pinned down after advertising and decision on developer:
(1) Would give freedom to the development plan.
(2) Cost and credits would not be quite as firm.
(3) Would delay from 1-3½ months before construction could be started (would this be actual or would the architects use up the time anyway)?
