Re:
Removal and Rehabilitation
of Houses From the Atlanta
Airport Expansion Site
Dear Mr. Landers:
Jle respectfully request, on behalf of Interfaith, Inc., your
review and approval of our proposal in connection with the abovecaptioned project.
Interfaith, Inc., is a nonprofit corporation organized under
the laws of the State of Georgi a ; the membership is composed of
Atlanta area churches and church ass ociations which represent a
broad cross section of the concerned religious leadership in
Metropolitan Atlanta.
One of the major objectives of Interfaith, Inc. is to provide
improved living conditions for low to moderate income families within the metropolitan area. I~ the furtherance of this objective,
Interfaith, Inc. is proposing to serve as the contractor for the
~hove-captioned project. Our prese nt plan is to provide for
comprehensive residentia l developments, utilizing special financing
assistance available by vi rtue of the 1968 Housing and Urban
Development Act. This legislation enables acceptable nonprofit
organizati ons to obtain financing equal to 100 per cent of the total
development cost of housing and related facilities, developed in
accordance with the provisions o f this legislation. Families of
low to moderate incomes will be eligible to purchase the completed
housing at a monthly rate within their ability to pay.
Intezfuith's concern is with the general welfare of the less
fortunate residents of Metropolitan Atlanta and has dedicated its
efforts to provide improved housing opportunities on a nonprofit
basis. All members, offic ers and directors of Interfaith serve
without financial compensation and offer their considerable skills
voluntarily. This effort of Interfaith represents the first
cooperative effort in the Greater Atlanta area to provide a united
�Mr. R. Earl Landers

attack by private nonprofit organizations on one of the major problems
confronting our city, namely, substandard housing •
. There are approximately 500 houses on the land adjacent to the
'Atlanta Municipal Airport that are to be removed within the next
few months, and for which no contract has been let. In addition to
these there will probably be more such removals at a later date.
We would like to offer the services of our orgarization to
become a nonprofit sponsor of an F.H.A. project to remove, relocate
and rehabilitate these houses for F.H.A. qualified low to moderate
income families. Under this project we would accept ownership of
these houses as you make them available, and move them to an F.H.A.
approved site, rehabilitate them to the high standards of F.H.A. and
resell them to low to moderate income families under the F.H.A.
financing of 1% interest and 35 year mortgage.
If the city feels that some payment should be received for these
houses a mutually agreed upon amount, the same for each house, can
be paid at the time we accept ownership. We would suggest that
this payment per house (if needed) be kept as small as feasible since
it is a direct addition to the sales price that the new owner must
pay, and as this cost goes up the income the family must have to
afford the purchase must be higher. The lower the final cost of
these houses the lower the income group that can be served.
If the city of Atlanta can enter into this a greement with
Interfaith, Inc. we feel that th e following advantages will be
realized:
1.)
A large number of houses for low and
moderate income f amilies would be put
on the ma r k et very quickly and in a
numb e r of loc a tions throug hout the
Atl a nt a are a .
2.)
Because of the e x tensive rehabilitation
work mor e of the houses will be put b a ck
in use.
3.)
Be tt er h ouses wi l l b e made avai l a bl e
b e c a u se o f t he F . H.A. standards and
consta nt i ns p e ction .
4.)
Thi s p rogram wi l l prov ide h ouses f o r the
l o w t o moderate income famil i es a t the best
a v ailable financing with 35 year mortga ge at
1% interest.
�Mr. R. Earl Landers
September 6, 1968
Page 3
5.)
Priority in purchasing these houses will
be given to the qualified families that
are being displaced.
6.)
The total clearing operation would be
speeded up since essentially the same
movers will be used plus additional ones
obtained by Interfaith, Inc.
7.)
The contracting for the work will be speeded
up because each house can be released to
Interfaith, Inc. just as soon-as it is cleared
by your land agent.
8.)
One contractor, Interfa ith, Inc., means
one responsibility in effecting priorities
of moving, scheduling and timing of all
phases of the work.
'
9.)
And finally, of inestimable value, will be
the services of a concerned and interested
group of church people to help these families,
by counseling and other wise, as they make this
relocation and transition.
We will appreciate your consideration of this proposal and we
will be glad to meet with you to ans wer any questions you mig ht have.
Sincerely,
~L~~-g,:

we arrived at an a v e r a q e p r ic e per acre of $7,650 . We

It is
our belief that the use of Secti o n 221 d(3 ) in its various a~plications, s~ction 235 and/or Section 236,

Some quantity of low-rent public housing may be
found necessary. Eac}~ prospective Redeveloper
should analyze this phase of the development in
order propc~ly to arrive at a solution.
It is
our hope that no low-rent public hqµsing will be
necessary to meet this goal oi the development.
However, if public housing, either Turn-key or
preferably Leased, is co~sidered necessary, it
s})ould not exceed 50% of the -300 dwellings.
Our analysis of the low-rent public housing situ-}
at ion in Atlar.ta, as it concerns high-rise for
?
elderly, leads 1.J.s t:o the conclusion t~1at this
_
type of public housing would not be acceptable in
this development.. We do not, however, rule out
high-rise for one and two person families financed
through other programs.

After the bid openingJ all proposals will be delivered to a Jury composed of nationally recognized
authorities in the field of housing. The Jury is
being supplied with the same information as that
supplied to prospective Redevelopers.
This Jury
will review all proposals and will select the
successful proposal to recommend to the Housing
Authority Board of Commissioners for the award.
(4)
It should be apparent from the foregoing that the
criteria for judging the proposals will be based
solely on the written information which has been
supplied both to the prospective Redevelopers and
to the Jury.
The types of questions, therefore,
that our staff is prepare d to answer relate to
the methods of submitting proposals rather than
to the contents of the• propo_sals.

Dear Sir:
Re:
Report Concerning Cooper-Glenn Area
The Building, Department Housing Code Division is making every effort to
eliminat e hazardous and unsafe conditions in the above area by making
inspections and notifying the owners of requirements necessary to make
structures safe and sanitary or to demolish the building .
We have not insisted upon full comp liance with the Housing Code in the
above area inasmuchas most of the prope rty is slated for acquisition and
demolition under the Model Cities Program .
,
To date, the Department has sent out notices effecting one hundred and
seventy-seven structures consisting of approximately four hundred living
units. Forty-seven buildings have been comp lied by rehabi litation and
thirty-five have been demolished. Thirteen owners have been in court and
eighty-one buildings are current ly being repaired.
Housing Code enforcement in the above area has been most difficult
because:
(a) Delay in approval of funds for the acquisition of properties by
the Housing Authority for the purchase of a school and park site located
east of Whitehall Terrace, S. W.
(b) Property owners and residents of the area are aware of future
Model Cities plan and feel that their property may be acquired and that
rehabilitation might cause them an undue expenditu re which they may not
later recover if the property is acquired.

(c) Lending institutions are reluctant to lend money in the above
disadvantaged area for home improvement purposes.
(d) Insurance policies have been canceled on structures because of
the possibility of civil disturbances.
We _.are continuing to make every effort to improve the above area. By
riding through this section many vacant lots where buildings have been
demolished can be seen and improvements in housing is progressing under
the handicaps mentioned above. Some bad housing is being demolished to
make way for future connnercial projects.

The attached paper was used tod y by Rodney Cook in expl ining to

Recoffi1Ilendation by Housing Resources Committee:
2.000 more public housing units.
Aldermanic Connnittee review and action:
1.
The request for a reservation of 2,000 additional units of
public housing to the Housing Assistance Administration
of the Department of Housing and Urban Development is in
line with the city's goal of ~reating 18,429 public housing
units in the city by 1971.
7
2.
To date we have obtaine·d and utilized reservationftotaling
4,500 units. Thus,.we currently have reached an accumulative
total of 14,514 units or 79% of our go a J.
3.
The propos ed reservation of an additional 2,000 units would
bring us an accumu lative total of 16,514 units or 90% of our
goal.
· 4.
The Planning and Development Committee recouL01ends adoption of
the resolution.

�Recommendation by Housing Resources Committee:
,
Stepped-up urban renewal.
Aldermanic Committee review and action:·
Eventually, every neighborhood in Atlanta must be involved to
some degree and in some form of renewal improvemnt. While we have
long sup~orted a stepped-up renewal program, we have tempered our
recommendations by the realities which administrative, financial
and housing limitations as well as social problems have imposed. It
is purely wishful thinking to believe that Atlanta can step up its
renewal program and ignore the limitations which are real not imaginary.
In addition, many of the limitations are couched in legal requirements
which are difficult to overcome.
We have been working in the Na~h-Bans Area for appro ximately one
and a half years, attempting to organi ze the community in support of
renewal i mprovements. Again, this take s time to develop and is a legal
mandate the city must fulfill.
The expressed objectives of the recently adopted Neighborhood
Development Program would also support a locally stepped-up renewal
program. The Neighborhood Development Pro g ra m was authori z ed by
Section 501 of the Hou s ing and Developmen t Act of 1968 . Howeve r, while
the Neighborhood Dev e lopme nt Pro gr am may provide the framework by which
to accel e r a t e loca l r e newa l efforts and soften some of our l i mit a tions,
it will in no way r e solve loca l fina ncial limitations. The Pl anning
Department has b e en instruct ed to pursue this program further and report
back to the Planning and Development Committee,
�I
Reco!:l11lendation by.Housing Resources Committee:
Revised Non-Conforming Use Ordinance.
Aldermanic Committee review and action:
1.
The Housing Resources recommendation was specifically oriented
to dclapidated housing in industrial zoned districts. The
Planning and Development committee did not share the idea that
major structural improvement of residential structures in
industrial districts should be allowed. The committee felt
that prolonging the life of a residential structure in a slum
environment where residential standards and services (parks and
schools) are not being provided, is no solution.
2.
The committee requested the staff to bring to the attention of
the Zoning Committee and the joint Planning Board their feelings
concerning the non-conforming Sections of the Zoning Ordinance. ·
The Zoning Ordinance is under review at the present time with
minor revisions expected to be brought before the Board in
mid-October.
�Recomi~endation by Housing·Resoqrces Committee:
,
Revised Building Code. ·
Aldermanic Committee Review and Action:
1.
The com.~ittee supports the position to revise the Atlanta
Building Code to enable the greater use of new techniques and
materials as long as Atlanta's building standards are improved
not compromised.
2.
The committee felt that recommendations for change should be
specific and be addressed to the Building Inspector and his
Technical Advisory Board.
3.
The committee r e commended that the profe s sionals associated wi th
building in the Atlanta Area be summoned to demonstrate and
document the need for change based on their actual experience
with the existing code, And further reco mmends that the Housing
Resourc es Committe e coordina t e and work with this group of
profes s ionals and the Building In spe ctor in the review of Atlanta's
Building Cod e and its interpreta tion.
�Recommendation by Housing Resources Corranittee
,
A committee of the Aldermen concerned with Housing.
Aldermanic Committee review and action
1.
Recommended the utilization of the existing Planning and Development Corr.mittee to be responsible for the continuing development
of housing policy and to provide greater direction and guidance
to the Housing Resources Committee. This pos.ition was taken
because the composition of this conunittee is broad consisting of
. representation from all other aldermanic committees concerned with
community development, redevelopment, and improvement.
2.
A resolution was recommended which officially documents and emphasi zes
this position (to be submitted Board of Aldermen September 16, 1968).
3.
The committee also felt that the Housing Resources Coromittee (a
citizen group) has and can continu e to have the most effective body
for gaining citizen support and underst anding for low-income housing
in Atl ant a as we ll as the Atl ant a regiona l ar ea. The continuing
efforts and advic e of t his commi ttee will be of gr e at ass istance to
the Planning and Development Con:mittee.

An engineering firm from Savannah, McNamara & Associates, Consulting Engine~rs, has made presentations in Atlanta of a
"patent applied for" low-cost housing method of construction with flexible design, which is claimed can be constructed
quickly on site, employing mostly untrained labor and at a savings of 10%-15% under conventional construction. This firm
established connections with a reputable c onstruction firm in Atlanta and a local architect.\ This team is anxious to

The Travelers Insurance Company has financed 70 or more new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville Urban Renewal

Broker ag e Company for financing low-cost homes at favorable rates.
Interest is inc_reasing in development of this_ type I?-ousing.

In vie w of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family developme nts, it is apparent that the Low-income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a
subs ta n t ial portion of the requirement on small scattered sites, with or without Federal assistance.

No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50 per
month , although the London Towne Houses :; a 221 d (3) co-op development now under construction, is approaching this close, wi t h
it s o ne bedroom un i t selling at $69 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30-$50 per month ren t al-purchase r a nge.

dema~ and marke t. Per h aps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the City Limits. Economi cs
for this pr ic e-range sales housing requires land which will not cost the developer more than $1,500 per unit, (a 5 , 000 s q.
ft. lot i s c onsidered ample for this type house).

Low-income Housing Programs
Applicable to Unincorporated Areas of Neighboring Counties
Under the National Housing Act, Cities and Counties can participate
in all of the Special Housing Programs providing ' that they have
satisfortorily complied with Government regulations and have an approved
Workable Program.
The following Cities have complied in all respects and their Workable
Programs are presently effective:
Atlanta
College Park
Decatur
Marietta
Other Cities and Counties in the Metropolitan area have either
permitted their Workable Program to expire or have never submitted a
Workable Program for approval.
.
l
RENT SUPPLEMENT PROGRAM~ Separate and distinct from the Federal aid
programs administered through local housing autho~ities, r but .serving the
same income group, is the rent supplement program; which ·was established
by the Housing Act of 1965 and administered ·by FHA.
Under the rent supplement program, a qualified-tenant pays 25 percent
of monthly income toward rent. His rent supplement, provided by the Federal
Government, is the difference between the 25 percent and the full market
rent for the dwelling unit he occupies.
To qualify for rent1.. supplement help · a · tenant must: ...
1.
Have an income within prescribed limits (no more than
would be allowed for public housing tenancy in the same
geographic area)~
2.
Have no . m0t~ ,assets, aside from income, than $2,000
($5,000 · for the elderly).
3.
Be one of the following:
62 ·years of age or olde r
Physically handicapp e d
Be displaced from home by government action
Living in substandard housing
A victim of natural disaster to the home in which
he is or was living
�Page 2
Sponsors or owners of rent supplement projects must be one of the
following:
1.
A nonprofit organization (labor, fraternal, church, or
other group).
2.
A limited dividend corporation (realtors, builders, developers,
etc.).
3.
A cooperative housing corporation.
Arrangements for rent supplement payments are made under contract
between the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the housing
owner.
Housing under the rent supplement program is financed with mortgages
insured under HUD programs at the market rate of interest. The housing,
of whatever type, is built, owned, and managed by private industry.
Must either have a Workable Program in effect or must have approval
of City or County Officials having jurisdiction.
FHA - SECTION 221 (h) - Rehabilitation and resale of existing homes
(detached, semi-detached or row houses). Workable Program not required.
These projects must be in groups of not less than five units. The
program is administered directly by FHA. The local special representative
is Mr. Kenneth L. Finn, FHA State Office, 230 Peachtree St., N.W., 3rd
Floor, Atlanta, Georgia, Telephone 526-6594.
LEASING PROGRAM - Communities that wishto use housing subsidies to
house low-inc ome families through LHA's must meet certain statutory
conditions and administrative requirements. The following are the most
important:
The locality must have, or must establish, a Local
Housing Authority (LHA)
Except for the Leasing Program, the locality must have a
Workable Program for Community Improvement approved by
the Secretary of HUD and currently in effect.
(A Workable Program includes seven elements of accepted
principles of good community development. These interact
to deal with the problem of slums and blight and help to
establish stable neighborhoods suitable for an adequate.
family life. HUD publications describing Workable
Program requirements are available.)
In the Leasing Program, the local governing body must
approve use of the program in the locality.
(In other
programs, each project must be approved by the governing
body, which must also ente r into a cooperation agreement
with the LHA. The agreement covers such matters as tax
�~age 3
exemption, payments in lieu of taxes, and provision
of the usual municipal services.)
Low-rent programs are subject to Title VI of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964 prohibiting ~iscrimination.
PUBLIC HOUSING - (Turnkey or Conventional - May be constructed and
operated by the Atlanta Housing Authority in unincorporated areas of
neighboring counties, which do not have certified Workable Programs,
within 10 miles distance of the City Limits of Atlanta. Concurrence of
County Commissioners is required and they must agree that necessary
community facilities will be provided the projects.
Public Housing (including Turnkey) may consist of a variety of types
of structures, i.e., high rise multi-family, garden type apartments,
duplexes and single-family houses, or any conbination of these in the
same or separte developments. There is a very strong desire on the part
of many low-income families for single-family houses. Many famalies
of course are not financially _able to purchase even the lowest cost
(221 d (2)) houses. Such can be developed however as Public Housing
(including Turnkey) and later sold to the occupants, as they become
financially able to qualify. The Federal Government is currently
encouraging this type of development under Public Housing.
221 d (2) SINGLE-FAMILY SALES HOUSING - This FHA insured mortgage
program can be placed almost anywhere, where appropriate zoning e x ists
and is not restricted to locations .w hich have Workable Pr ograms. FHA
insuredlilOrtgages (30-40 years) may be obtained at approx imately 100%
of appraisal. The down payment is only $ 200 f or those who hold certificates
as displaced by gov~rnmental action and slightly more ( $ 350 to $400)for
anyone who qualifies financially and h a s a good credit record. The ma x imum
FHA insured mortgages on these houses in the Atlanta Metropoli t an area
has been $12,500, but has recently been incre ased under the Housing Act
of 1968 to $15,000. This should cause a ve r y much needed boost in this
program.
FARMERS HOME ADMINISTRATION - An Atlant a family, or one residing in
neighbor ing ru ra l a r e a s, may be able to build a home in a ru ra l area unde r
th i s p r ogra m, wh i ch is limited to onl y low and moderate income f am ilies,
which c a nno t qu a lify fo r conventiona l loa ns t h r ough loc a l lending
i nst i t uti o ns.
Th e r e i s no st at utor y limit a tion on size o r cost o f t he h omes t o b e
bu i lt. However f r om a p ra c ti c a l st and point s uch homes do n o t us ua l ly exc eed
about 1400 sq . ft . o f l ivi ng spa ce and max i mum mortgage s ar e ab out $14,000.
Home are generally withi n t he $ 10 , 000 -$12 ,000 ra n ge. Th e re i s no design
criteria spec ifi e d.
Intere st is 5% straight; 33 year mo rtgage, which may
be as high as 100% o f appra i sed fa i r value. Loans ar e insured by the
Farmers Home Administration. There is no d o wn payme nt r e quir e d. However
purchaser must pay for title certific ate and recording fees. Mortgage
limitations are based on family income, with maximum income considered
$7,000. Payments are on an annual basis, although mortgagors with income
of less than about $5,000 per year are required to make monthly payments.
The Farmers Home Administration is willing to accept applications from

Atlanta residents who qualify and wish to build a low-cost home in a
rural area.
State Director of this program is Mr. S. L~ VanLandingham, PeachtreeSeventh Building. Details pertaining to this program are contained in
Pamphlet PA-476, Rural Housing Loans, U.S. Department of Agriculture,
Farmers Home Administration.
CONVENTIONAL FINANCING - In addition to the above Federal assisted
programs, apartment developments under conventional financing, with no
Federal assistance, are of course feasible and are taking place constantly
where land prices are favorable, necessary utilities exist and where
appropriate zoning and required permits can be obtained.
In fact to date,
since Atlanta's accelerated Low-income Housing Program was initiated,
November 15, 1966, 50% more units have actually been constructed in
Atlanta, under Conventional financing, than under all of the Federal
assisted programs combined. These however generally serve the moderate
income families ($5,000 - $8,000 income) and are not available to the
lowest income families ($3,000 or below). This latter requirement can
currently be met only through Public Housing; whereas, the Federal
assisted programs generally serve requirements of families in the intermediate $3,000 - $5,000 bracket.

Re: Proposed Joint Fulton CountyAtlanta County Line Road Sewer
Outfall
Dear Mr. Respess:
I represent National Homes Development Company of Lafayette, Indiana,
in efforts to sell their property located adj a cent to County Line Road and
Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta. As a matter of information for
my clients and myself, I investigated the availability of a sanitary sewer
to the property.

·1 spoke to George Pace of your department and he informed me that there
was a proposed sewer outfall for the County Line tract, such proposed
outfall to be a joint effort between the City of Atlanta and Fulton County.
During the course of of our conversation, · Mr. Pace told me that Atlanta
has been ready since 1963 to proceed with the project and was awaiting
an agreement with the Fulton County Public Works De partme nt. I
subsequently w ent to the Fulton Public Works D e pa rtme nt and talk e d
with Mr. H. E. Philips. Mr. Philips advised me that to the best of his
knowledge, Fulton County has been ready to participate since 1958
and wa s awaiting an OK from the City of Atlanta before the project was
to proceed.
I rea lize d a t this point, tha t evide ntly the re wa s a l a ck of recent
communication on this project between the two d e partments and it was
not my place to intervene. During a second conversation with Mr. Pace,

he suggested that I write to you and ask for a clarification of the

Turner McDonald in Fulton County Public Works to clarify the present
status of the joint project. I want to make it clear that I do not blame
anyone, and that I merely recognize that we are all people. Therefore,

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr.
Director of Governmental Li aison
Re your note for my thoughts on attached explanation of Section
413 "Low and Moderate Income Housing in Residential Ur ban Renewal
Ar eas", in. rei)ort of the House Banking and Currency Committee on the
"Housing and Ur ban Development Ac t o f 1 9 68", I have had some dif f iculty
in understa nding the explanation. This may be partially because of the
poor reproduction of page 53. The first word of line 14 of page 53
reads "adequate l y". This is confusing, in v iew of the tenor of the
remainde r of the paragraph.
I belie v e this wo1·d should read "inadequately".
My understanding of the explanation is that whereas, currently
i n any Ur ban Renew al P roject to be de v eloped f or predominently
r esidential use, at least 20% of the units to be developed must be
standa r d and o f low and moderate c ost, whe r eas the proposed amendment
r eq uir es that 50% o f the units to be de v eloped in al l Ur ban Renewa l
Are as i n a c ommu ni ty must be o f low a nd moderate cost (with at le a st
20% o f them f a l l ing i n the c a t e go r y designed f o r l ow-income fami l i e s ).
Th e p r oposed req uirements would not b e r etroactiv e, but woul d a pp ly
to f uture Ur ban Rene wal Pr oject s .
In vi e w o f the diffi cult y wh i ch we h a ve a lready e xper i enced wit h
respect to the pr op osed de v e l opme nt o f the Fede r a l Pen Sit e, whe reby
initiall y the Housing Au tho ri ty d id n ot p r o p os e to h av e c ons tr uc t ed on
it o nly un its f o r the lowes t i n c ome fami lies ; and the posit ion wh i c h
the Housing Resourc e s Commi t te e too k i n opposi tion to tha t p r o p osal;
and the supp o rt received fr om t h e Ma yor o n t h e p ositi o n t aken by the
Housing Resources Committe e; it thus appe ars to me that the proposed
change is probably justified .
If Urban Renewal is to accomplish its primary purpose of providing
adequate housing for the lowest as well as moderate income families, I
do not share Hugh Meilds f eeling that the proposed change would hurt a
community or unduly restrict and deprive the Urban Renewal program of
the flexibility i t needs.

Dear Dan:
We have reviewed Section 413 11 Low and Moderate Income Housing in
Residential Urban Renewal Areas" as it appears in the Report of the House
Banking and Currency Committee on the 11 Housing and Urban Development Act
Of 1968, II
It is our understanding that the Atlanta Housing Authority has also reviewed
these materials and expressed concern about restraints which said section might
impose, namely, an economic diversification of housing units and possible
conflicts between local and national goals impeding achievement of the highest
and best use of land. In that we share these same feelings we shall not reiterate
them here .
Instead we would like to offer some suggestions which we feel might strengthen
this section, while at the same time offering some alternatives to those cities
to be affected by it. The suggestions are :
(I ) Let the 20% provision as currently written in the law remain
as it is, but add the requirement of a locally developed low
to moderate income housing program outside of u rba n renewal
are a s . Such a loc a lly developed program could be sub jected
to rev iew as necessary by the Secretary of HUD in much the same
way a s th e Wo rka ble Program for Communi ty Improveme nt (WPFCI ) .
�Mr. Dan Sweat

July 22, 1968
(2) Use the 50% requirement, but state it somewhat differently.
It should be restated to the effect that, if possible, 50%
or more low to moderate income housing units should be
developed in predominantly residential reuse projects to rehouse
those families and individuals originally displaced. If this
requirement is found to be in conflict with local goals, the City
shal I then create or cause to be created in other areas of the
city that percentage of units not attained within the urban renewal
project area, or
(3) Use the 50% or more requirement, but enhance its use. Congress
might give thought to creating inducements or incentives to
cities applying themselves towards the end of creating low to
moderate income housing units. For example, in those urban renewal
projects (predominantly residential) wherein 50% or more of the
units are designed for low to moderate income housing, it would be
desirable to accomplish economic diversity, and a cohesive"planned
community" (including but not limited to commercial areas,
community centers, schools, parks and other residential amenities).
The proposals should be imaginative and innovative, but practical
and economically feasible, They would be subjected to the normal
review by the Secretary of HUD, but upon acceptance wou Id be
eligible for 80/20 or 90/10 financing in lieu of the standard I/3rd 2/3rds arrangement .
Thank you for the oppostunity of commenting on these materials.

Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen,
I appreciate the opportunity to have made your acquaintance and to have discussed
with you the experimental in-city housing program . Atlanta is a fine city, and I
th ink quite suitable for the site of such an experiment.
Having worked in Atlanta on various real estate associated projects over the past two
years, I have come to know the city wel I and feel that Atlanta has the potential of
becoming a model example of how urban growth should be guided. I and Real Estate
Research Corporation stand ready to assist you in whatever way we may in the planning
of your futu re growth.
Very truly yours ,

Dear Mr. Bedford:
Thank you for your letter of July 17, 1968, pertaining to the
Experimental Housing program of the Department of Housing and Urban
De velopme nt, which was deli vered to me yesterday personally by Mr.
G. M. Abraham, Project Engineer.
The City of AtlAnta is very much interested in the Exper imental
Housing program in that we aro committt e d to probably the most extensive
low-income housing program in the S outhe ast and are currently very
active in implimenting it. We certainly hope to be included as one
of the cities recommended for participati on in the program.
With respect to the criteria which you are using in your
evaluation of cities as potent ia l locations for experimental Housin g,
I will comment briefly on each point, in the order listed in your letter.
1.
Atlanta, proba bly more than any other city in the
Southeast, attracts many workers in the low and moderate
income brackets. Hence, our need for low-income housing
is great.
2. Housing is c onsidered our Number one priority and our
entire city is comm itted to providing adequately for it.
We have a very active Housing Resou1·ces Comm ittee, comp os ed
of p rominent business and civic leaders, sponsoring the
overall program.
Included in its membership are leaders
of both labdr ~nd industry. This Commi ttee also sponsors
a monthly coordinating group me eting with the he~ds o f
Departments and Agencies involved with low-income housing.
3.
In our application for· Model Cities we went on record
ns to our willingness to make appropriate adjust me nts in
our Codes and Zoning to permit innovations in techniques
and materials in housing.
�\

Mr. C. P. Bedford, Jr.

4. We understand that in order to meet program schedule
requirements, it will be necessary for construction sites
to be available by Ma rch 1, 1969. We feel confident that
this requirement can be met, through advanced land acquisition
(subject to approval from HUD), in our .Model Ci ties A1·ea.
We are positive that suitable sites outside of our Model
Cities Area can be available nt that time.
I:
As to constraints cited in your letter, which may require
relief:
a.
Atlanta has a good reputation for reasonable cooperation
of organized labor in the use of indigenous labor and easing
of work rules.
in this field.
We do not anticipate any major difficulty
The labor force in Atlanta is about 50% Union and 50%
Non-Union. Reasonable cooperation may be expected in the
application of new technical ideas, particularly in our
Model Cities Aren, where we are prepared to waive certain
aspects of our existing technical codes to permit experimental
innovations in techniques and materials.
b.
c. We have a Board of Adjustments for consid ering zoning
variances; also Technical Advisory Boards for considering
changes and or variances in the constr uction technical
codes. We anticipate their willingness to cooperate fully,
where health and safety will not be affected.
d. We are a l rea dy we ll advanced i n the overa ll housing
program and severa l substantial non-profit organizations are
available for sp onsoring maj or proj0cts in the housing
program .. Financing is available th r ou g h local banks,
mortgage bankers and insurance companies, several o f which
are already quite active in this field. Ne cessary seed
money is available through the recently or ganized, Atlanta
Housing Development Corporation, with a commit ted initnl
operating capital of approximately $500,000.00.
With respect to the letter of commitment requested by HUD in regard
to site availability, suitability of the proposed experiments and
cooporation in relief of constraints, I wish to advise that sites are
available within the City Limits (and we anticipate can be made availabl e
in the Mode l Cities Area) and I pledg~ my personal support in relief
of constraints where reasonable and desireable in carrying out the
Experimental Housing program.

NOTES
TI.,022 units proposed did not materialize, of which 8,056 were shown in the previous report of Jan. 15, 1968 and 2,966 additional
units are listed in this report, as Lost.- (The majority of these losses were due to disapprovals of sites {and proposed rezoning.)

Proposed locations for low-cost housing are coordinated through the Planning Dept., for adequacy of Community Facilit ies, existing
or prosposed. Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for adequacy of school facilities.

An engineering firm from Savannah, McNamara & Associates, Consulting Engineers, has recently made presentations in Atlanta of a
"patent applied for" low-cost housing method of construction with flexible design, which is claimed can be constructed q u ickly on
site, em~loying mostly untrained labor and at a savings of 10%-15% under conventional construction. · This fir m establis h ed
connections with a ·reputable construction firm in Atlanta and a 1ocal architect. This t~am is anxious to acquire a 10 acre tract
in the Model Cities area to construct an experimental Housing project.
The Travelers Insurance Company has agreed to finance 70 or more new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville Urban Renewal
project area under the FHA 221 D (2) insured moitgage program. Equitable has made $1,000,000 available to Atlanta Mortgage Broker~g~
Co. for financing low-cost homes at favorable rates.
I
In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family developments,
it is apparent that the Low-income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial
portion of the requirements on ·small scattered sites, with or without Federal assistance.
No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $ 50 per month,
a l t hough the London Towne Houses, a.221 d (3) co-op development now under construction, is pushing this c+ose, with i t s one
bedroom unit advertised to sell for $59 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30-$50 per month rental-purchase range.
Ric h ard L. Fullerton Associates has proposed a fibre glass "manufactured" patented process, 3 bedroom and bath house (900 sq. f t.
& c a r port) with w-to-w carpeting and air conditioning, ~hich he claims can sell for $9,000-$9,500, including land estimated to
cost $1,500.
H.
Na tional Homes Corp. of Lafayette, Inc. placed on the market Fab. 1, 1967 a 800--900 S.F. (O.S. dimensions) 3 bed~ooms, p re fa b ri c ate
prea ssembled panel, single family house plus a 96 S.F. (IoSo dimensions) storage building manufactured by Arrow Metal Pr oduc t s Corp.
t o s ell under FHA 221 d (2). Price includes plumbing, electrical, heating units, stove & refrigerator. Houses can b e compl e tely
a ss embled in 85 man hours; 72 of these (with conventional plumbing) are being erected (pre-sold) in the Th omasville Urb an Renewal
Area . Ap prox. 800 sq. ft. house is priced at $11,200; 900 sq. ft. house is priced at $11,600. Adrian Homes Cor. h as p rop os ed a
prefab to retail for about $7,500 plus land, foundation, closing and possible tapping fees. Other prefab distribu t ors a nd convent ional b u ilder s have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Codes difficulties, a re no t p roduci ng s ingl
fami ly h o uses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$12,500 range for which there is a strong demand and market. Perha ps the gr e ates t
difficulty is a vailability of suitably priced land within the City Limits. Economics for this price range sa l es hous ing r e q u ire
land which wi ll not co~~ the developer more than $1500.per unit.
(A 5,000 sq. ft. lot is considered ample fo~ this t ype hous e.)

the areas. He stated that he still wanted Mr. Jones and Mr . Parham

Mr. Alexa nder stated that the Zoning Manu al, as it r e lates
to the Building Code, needs to be changed to permit struc tura l

Mr. Persells stated that the City of Atlanta's low-income
housing program calls for 16,800 housing units and that it is
contended by some that more people are coming in from rural
areas, rather than the people already in Atlanta using the
housing and that thus, we are not taking care of our own people
in the slum areas; that priority should go to the people of
Atlanta first. Mr. Persells stated that the number of people
who come to Atlanta f or low-income housing is very low; that
of those applications rejected since November 1967 1 141 did
not meet the residential requirements; that the time of
application applies to priority for public housing; that it is
on a first come first served basis (other considerations permitting).
Mr. Jones commented that ~lthough the percentage of
rejections may be low f or those who do not meet residential
requirements, however, that 141 rejections since November 1967,
that did not meet residential requirements, is significant
and should be made known to the Aldermen.
Mr. Jim Parhm said that the Committee should start buildi~g
up the area outside the City Limits in the big Metropolitan Area
to meet this problem of people coming fr om the rural areas who
need to live in low-income housing.
As there was no further business, the meeting adjourned
at 11:05 a .m.

Mr. Dan Sweat
City Hall,
Atlanta, Ga.
Dear Dan:
As a courtesy, I thought you would like to see the
first draft of the article on Atlanta. Some of the
figures will be outdated, but I intend to get the
latest figures available from Malcolm Jones just before we go to press.
The manuscript is going to be revised before it is
published. Any comments you might have will be appreciated .
Thank you for all your help.
Sincerely,
