Authority with reference to a m jor innova tion we a re undertaking
for the provision of low cost housing in urban a r as . Please accept
my sincere expression of gratitude for thelr courtesies and their
very as hite attention to the matters brought before them .
I am worklng ln behalf of a well ca italized g rou p ·whlcb controls
the ~tents by which a major breakthrough ln construction costs can
b achieved. To over lmpllfy, it is our intention to not m rely "prefabrlc te" but t o actua lly manufacture housing wilts and deliver them
to th e s it a lmost intact . The t,Jatents have to do wlth a method of
preforming fibre lass so that the necetJsary s tructural charact rlstlce can be built lnto the bulldlng components on a m as~ production
ba s t • The automobll indu ·try is turning out much mor complicated prod'1ct th n the housing induMtry at enormously lower costs.
Machine work and mass t1roductlon tecbnlque are th obviou nsw r.
Our think.in ls not uniqu t.n thls re ard, but the group I r present
doeliS control rlgld patent and unusual billtie in the necessary ft lds
s o that -we re ur that w can move forw rd.
I am writlng now with reference to th "Honor Farm" land th t is
currently under con ider tlon by your ofrlce • Obviously th re ls an
ov rwhelmlng need for low co t housing to be bullt ln Atl nta. You
