Minutes
December 12, 1S68
The Second Annual Meeting of the Housing Resources Committee
was held on Thursday, December 12, 1963, in Committee Room 2,
Second Floor, City Hall to review and discuss the work of the
Committee in the low-income housing program during the past two
years. November 15 marked the completion of the second year since
the Mayor established the Housing Resources Committee on
November 15, 1966, in his Conference on Housing.
Copies of invitation~l notice, list of those invited, with
attendance indicated, and other related documents are attached to
the file copy of these minutes only.
Chairman Alexander opened the meeting at 10:30 a.m. and called
on Alderman .Cotsakis for a statement which he had asked to make.
Mr. Cotsakis commented on revision of the Building Codes for
the City of Atlanta, particulnrly to allow experimental housing
to be built in the Model Cities area. He said that if any one
had any chnges of the Building Codes which they desired be made,
that they should bring proposals for specific changes to the attention
of the Building Committee.
Mr. Alexander then called on M~lcolm Jones to eemment ~n
the accomplishments of the Housing Resources Committee.
Mr . Jones said that November 15, 1968, marked the completion
ef the first two years' activity of tbe Housing Resources Committee
in its effort to promote and accelerate the Low•income Housing
Progrem in Atlanta, for which the goal was 16 1 800 low and medium
in~ome housing units during a five year period (1967-71), announced
by the Mayor in his Housing Conference establishing the HRC on
November 15, 1966 .
He then stated that tho fiYe. yoar goal is now in the pipeline
and that the current status of the low and medium income housing
pPogram shows:
Completed
Under Construction
In Pl~nning
Xn Sight
3 1 217 units
6 ,278 units
7.337 units

This slightly exceeds (by 32 units) the 5 year goal of 16,800
units and is only 305 units sho~ in the first two categories, of
the aoticipated need fer g,800 units during the first two years of
the program~
�PQge 2

Autho rity, P lanning Department , Buildi ng Department , Public Works
Department , memb0rs o f the Board o f Aldermen, Mayor Allen and the
me mbers of the Press, Radi o and TV Organi z~tions for their
cooperation and assistance .
Mr . Al exander then called o n Mr. Charles F. Palme r, member
of the Public :-lousing Panel of the Committee, to discus s a
Resolu tio n the Panel had prepared.
Mr. Palmer stated that the only l ogica l conclusion reached
is that (1) subsidized housing must be fairly distriduted
throughout the city and, ( 2 ) that the only polit ic ally feasible
way to do this is by a "pac k age deal " simu l taneously presented
to Council by the Mayor and Atlanta Housing Authority with
�Page 6
overwhelming community support.
He stated that the opion of the sub-committee is that it is
not too late to resubmit those rejected zoning applications
through the "package plan" on a simultaneous basis to meet
the city's needs for subsidized housing and that the Mayor,
the Board of Aldermen and the Atlanta Housing Authority should
proceed to do so forthwith.
·
Mr. Palmer then stated that if the same energy, zeal and
leadership of our "power structure 11 and city officials that was
mobilized to build our dazzling stadium, luxury apartments and
magnificent hotels and office buildings in our urban redevelopment areas had been applied to providing subsidized housing for
those who were bulldozed out of slums to ma ke room for these
m~jestic structures, the goal of public housing which our Mayor
proclaimed so long ago would now be nearly reached.
Then, as spokesman for the Chairman of the Sub-Committee
on Public Housing and on the sub-committee's behalf, moved
that our full Committee does now reaffirm its position on
"package rezon i ng", and calls upon its fellow organizations
of the City and those responsible f~r its implementation to
cooperate to put it into effect.
The Resolution was duel seconded and the Chairman called
f or discussion.
Mr. Al exa nder then suggested that sinc e this was included in
the requests made on hugusut 2, 1 968, to the Zoning Committee
and the Planning and Development Committee of the Board of
Aldermen and ha d been re f erred to the Planning Department, the
Committee should first address the Planning Department as to
current status of t he proposal.
Mr. Palme r de cl i ne d the suggestion and as ked f or a f orma l
vot e on the mot ion to a dopt the Resolution. I t was adopted
una nimoualy.
Mr . Alexander t hen showed the Commi ttee s lides tha t wer e
t aken of the slums as they exist t od ay in certa in areas o f t he
City , particularly Lightening , and as a contrast the new low-income
replacement housing devel opment s such as : V!hea t St reet Gardens,
College Plaza, Allen Te mple , Mc Daniel Street apar t ments for
the Elderly , Hollywood Road Pro jGct , Bankhead Highwa y, Friedship
Gardens , Thom~sville U.R . Projec t and the London Towne Houses.
Mr. William Howland then comment0d on the f ive houses in
Linwood Park which have been rehabilitPtod by CACUR under the
221 (h) program.
The Chairmon then cnlled on Mr. Dan Sweat, Director of
Governmental Li~ison, for comments.
�Page 7
Mr. Sweat stated tha t the statis t ics released by Col. J ones
and the Committee were impress i v e a nd that the influence of the
Committee's success was not confined to Atlanta's hous i ng program
alone but has also been felt at the na tiona l l evel and that housing
experts from over the country have commented on the Atlanta
approach and on the exce l lent program of the Housing Resources
Committee.
He stated that h i o f c olinc is that the story behind the
statistics is where the real meaning of this Committee and the
Housing Program is to be found. Be said that the work of the
Committee has made 211 the city aware o f the desperate need for
decent housing for the less fortunate, l ess affluent citizens of
Atlanta; that it has helped bridge the gap of credit~bility bot¼cen
the City - the institution - the power structure and a very large
and importa nt segraent of our comr:mni t y, and most important , this·
program started the City out on a new directi on so long needed.
He stated that the Aldermen understood this need when they
refused to p ass Urban Renewal Survey and Plannixg applications
until the housing relocation needs were met. The Mayo r realized
the need when he cal led the Hous i ng Conference and established
this commit tee and it was obvious that the private business
leadership recogn i zed i t when , the members of the Rousing Resources
Committee, responded as has been done.
V
.,
Mr . Sweat then po inted out that the resultant changes are
re fle cted in a report given by Howard Openshaw, Director of
Redevelopment of the Hous ing huthority, at the last CACUR meeting.
Mr . Openshaw pointed out that o f the 10 1 033 units begun i n
urban renewal pro jec ts i n 1968, 884 units have been completed
which is 21 times t he nu~bcr of housing completed the previous
year in urban renewal 2reas. During the sane period, o nly 484
units were demolished in urban renewal areas . So , for the first
.time in the histo~y of Atlanta 's urban renewa l program , mo re
bousing units were completed in urba n renewal areas than were
.demolished.
Mr . Sweat concluded by saying , "We have finally turned the
corner in our urban redevelopment program and are headed in a
new direction so long s ought. "
Mr. Archer D. Smith , X](X , Chairman of th0 Legal Panel , made
a warning statement that we·are deluding ourselves if we take the
figur~s presented and quit working ; that we have got to be realistic
and get behind the package zoning plan .
Upon inquiry from the Chairman, Mr. Jones confirmed that sites
for all of the 7,337 units shown as In Planning, have not yet been
rezom~d.
�Page 8
In reference t o the figures pert~ining to Public Housing,
contained in the Summary of Status Report (Encl. 2, Second
Annual Report), attention is called to the fact that although
the 5,476 units shown as Completed, Under Construction and
In Planning categories, fall short by 4,100 units of the 5
year · goal, it is ho~ever within 110 units of the 2 year goal
of 5,586 Public Housing units announced in the Mayor's Housing
Conference, November 15, 1966.

�TO: The Housing Resources Committee of Atlanta
FROM:
Sub-Committee on Public Housing
During the last year the Sub-Committee on Public
Housing held numberless meetings with many community leaders
and visited a great many acceptable sites for projects.
After days and nights of discussions and tireless blending
of opinions, plans for action were unaminously agreed.
rhe only logical conclusion was reached that (1) subsidized housing must be fairly distributed throughout the city
and, (2) that the only politically feasible way to do this was
by a "package deal" simultaneously presented to Council by the
Mayor and Atlanta Housing Authority with overwhelming community
support.
Our full Committee, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, the
Ma yor ' s Citizens Advisory Committee, church organizations and
many others approved and endorsed such procedure.
But when submitted to the Housing Authority the Authority
stated it hadn't studied the plan, failed to approve or disapprov~but instea d proceeded with the single shot approach which
had failed before.
The r esult wa s continuing turn downs of rezoning by the
Aldermanic zoning powers .
. I t is the opinion of the Sub ~Committee on Public Housing
t hat i t is not too late to resubmit those rejected z on i ng
appl i c a tions t hr ough the "pack age plan" on a simultaneous b a sis
t o mee t th e city ' s n eeds for subsid ized hous i ng an d that the
Mayor , the Board of Alderman and th e Atlanta Housing Author ity
shoul d proceed to do so forthwith .
If the same energy, zea l and l ead er s hip of our " power
structure" and c i ty offi c ia ls t h at was mobil ized to bu i ld our
dazzling stadium, luxu~y apartments and magn i ficent h otel s and
office buildings in our urb a n redevelopment a r eas had been
applied with equal energy, zeal and lea d ership to providing
subsidized housing for those who were bu l ldozed out of slums
to make room for these majestic structures, the goal of public
housing our Mayor publicly proc l aimed so long ago would now be
nearly reached.
�.
-2. ;
We have done wonders for the rich. Now, let us do
wonders for the poor!
Therefore, as Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Public
Housing and on its behalf, I move that our full Committee
does now reaffirm its position on "package rezoning", and
calls upon its fellow organizations of the city and those
responsible for its implementation to cooperate to put it
into effect.

· low-Cost Housing Gap
THE HOUSING Resources Committee heard
Thursday that Mayor Ivan Allen's fiveyear, lo,v-cost housing goal of 16,800 replace. ment units by 1971 was . sure of being met.
This is encouraging.
· But the goal, unfortunately, falls far be--
low the mammoth commitment needed if city
leaders are determined to wipe out the terrible slum conditions that breed violence and
· volatile r esentment.
Noting this, the HRC voted unanimously
at its second annual meeting to endorse and
push for appr oval of the zoning "package
plan" designed to pave the way for low-cost
. housing throughout all sections of the city .
simultaneously.
Is this too much to expect?
The answer appar ently has been yesjudging by the silent reception the plan h_as
r eceived from the alderm anic Pl anning and ·
Development Committee and the Zoning Committee since it was r eceived for study last
August.
Both comm Htces were to seek inform ation
from the Planni ng Depar tment. Now, more
than four months later , Pl an ning Department
Director Colli er Gl adin has r epor ted no substantial progress has been mad e to implement
the package plan.
HRC Cha irman Cecil Alexander put the
· need for the package plan in proper perspec- ·
. tive las t August. " It's like this, " he told the
a ldermen, '.'eithe r we house the poor or we
have within ou r midst, if not in this · generation, then cer tainly in the nex t, an alien ated
· people r eady to gras p by fo rce what -we would
. not pro·vide when there was ye t time. "
The true indication of the meager success
In providi ng adequate low-cost housing units
so far in Atlanta comes from a statement
r ele·a sed by the Atlanta Housing Authority
Wednesday. F or the first time in Atlanta
urban renewal histor=y, said the AHA, housing
construction in 1968 exceeded the number of
uni ts de molished.
In other words , AtlcJ nta has virtually been
staniling still, if not going backwards , in at-·
tacking its low-cost problem in r ecent years.
Therefore, it is not surprising to count the
number of r esponsible community orga nizations supporting the package plan. They
include the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce,
the Community Council of the Atla nta Area
Inc., Central Atlanta Progress Inc. , the Wori1en's C_hambe~ of Commerce, the League of

THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION

,r
.A Fig1it at All Levels
Two groups in the vital area of housing
heard good news last week in Atlanta, btit
members immediately got off their laurels
to continue their work.
ban Renewal, meantime, was hearing that for
the first time in urban renewal history here
housing construction exceeded the demolitfon
rate.
· The mayor's Housing Resources Committee was told that Mayor Ivan Allen Jr.'s
five-year goal of 16,800 units of low-cost housing surely would be met.
Lest this set off jubilation
over the
place, Atlanta Housing Authority official Howard Openshaw had a somber message, part
of which was as follows:
More than 3,000 have been completed, another 6,000 are under construction, and more
than 7,000 are in the planning process.
All wasn't optimism, however. "We're
deluding ourselves," said attorney Archer D.
Smith III, "if we take these figures and
quit working. . . . We've got to be realistic
and get behind the package zoning plan.
The committee voted unanimously to seek
again such a plan, which would zone for
low-cost housing simultaneously throughout
all sections of the city. Such an approach
has been studied by the City Planning department since last August.
"In our affluent society, it is unthinkable
that millions of Americans remain ill-housed;
that affluent whites continue to flee to the
suburbs, leaving our urban core to the poor
and blacks; that spreading slums and blight
are leading us not to decay but destruction,
while in many cities, officials remain insensitive lo the plight of the people..
The Citizens Advis0ry Committee for Ur-
all
Starkly pu t, yes, but a I summing of a
national concern. It is well that Atlanta sees
the problem and is fighting it through committee, agency, and individual leadership.
This is one of America's most important battles, and it must be engaged at all levels of
government.

Novelist Jan Struther once 1·1rote: A city is greater than its bricks and mortar; it
is greater than tower or palace, church or hall; a city's as great as the little people
that live there. 11
We agree wit~ the sentiment expressed in these lines, but if we expect the little
people to prove their greatness, aren't vie duty bound to ask ourselves, what kind of
living quarters are we providing for them?
Many families in Atlanta are living in decrepit apartments and rat-infested slum
housing. Their so-called homes are unfit for raising children . They lend themselves
more often to serving as breeding places for discontent, disease and crime .
While we have replaced some of these hovels and shacks, and expect to meet the Mayor's
quota of 16,800 replacement units by 1971, we aren't providing nearly enough low and
middle-income housing.
And we aren't subsidizing the building of such units in enough different places in
the city.
Clarence Col eman of the Housing Resources Committee of Atlanta hea ded a t eam that
studied this matter thoroughly. Its members concluded that (l) subsidized housing
must be fairly distributed through the city; and (2) the only politically feasible way
to do this is by a 11 package deal , 11 1,11hich designates some ten areas located in various
sections, north, south, east and west, all of which are suitable for housing development.
The plan isn't new, but its never been given a vote of approval by the Boa rd of
Alder~n. If they would say yes, housing development could move ahead in a way to make
1969 a oanher year for Atlanta.
Our city has proved its ability to redesign our skyline vlith magnificent ne\'.J office
buildings, hotel s, lu xury apartme nts and shooping complexes , This same kin d of vi s ion .
and energetic l eaders hip is so rely nee ded in the building of adeq uat e sub sidi ze d housing.
· Besides eradicating substandard dwe llings and bringing new sunlight into thousands
of lives, such an enlightened effort on a mas s ive, city-~·1i de scale could oerhaps do more
than any other thing to promote social and .economic stabili ty and stimulate peaceful
progress throughout our community .
A great many bus in es s, profess ional and chu rch leader s are sol idl y behind this program.
A number of our top civic organizations are enthus iastically s upportin~ it.
What we need now i s a res ounding expression of approval from t he vast maj or ity of our
loca l citizens .
If we make i t cl ear and convin cin g that we , t he people of Atl anta , are behind t hi s
package proposal --and we earnes t ly want to see subs idi ze housing di s tri buted t hro ughout
the city--then vte will improve vastly the chances that our Housing Authority and our
Aldermen will h2ar and give thi s program the green light.

AN EDITORIAL OPINION •.• •• •••
January 2, 1969
VIEWPOINT
An official expression of the editorial opinion of
the management of WSB Television.
"Who is my neighbor?"
If you live in Atlanta, here's a modern day answer to
that 2,000 year old question.
These are your neighbors.
Some live in these homes because they are lazy; some
because they don't know any better; but most because there is
simply no other place to live in this city of a million.
For too long, most of us have passed by our slum
neighbors on the other side of the road.
But the good Samaritans are among us today, too.
In 1966, Mayor Allen set a goal - almost 17,000 new
housing units in the next five years. It was a modest goal
actually aimed only at keeping us about even in the fight
against rotte n housing.
Since then, Atlanta architect Cecil Alexander has
sacrificed much of his own profit-making time as a non-paid
chairman of the Mayor's Housing Resources Committee. And
Malcolm Jones, a retired Army Colonel, has been the full-time
working head of the big housing pus h. At the · e nd of the first
two years, the program is amazingly "on schedule".
Except in one important area:
The city is 4,000 units behind in the goal
rJr
public
housing.
Behind in the very area where the need is greatest,
where this family must live --in new units that can be rented
or purchase d at $30 to $50 per month.
Of all the units built or started since 19 66, private
enterprise has not b~en able to build anything to re nt o r sell
for l ess than $60 a month. That i s not to s a y tha t priv a t e
builders have not tried. They have done a fine job. But the
high co st of l and and labor and zoning problems have effectively
prevented the building of tr~ly low co st housing.
That me ans that our gove rnme nt , which is anothe r way
of say ing -you a nd I , i s appare ntly the only Samaritan who can
change the life of a boy like this.

AN EDITORIAL OPINION .... . .. .
January 3, 1969
VIEWPOINT - An official e x pression of the editorial opinion of
the management of WSB Television.
American Builder Magazines' Centennial issue asked
a hard question:
"Who really give a damn about housing?"
And answers:
· "Not the cities - they're headed for a decade of
failure.
"Not the suburbs - they couldn't care less."
"Not the rural areas - everyone's leaving them."
"Not the power structure - all they do is talk, talk,
talk."
Then the magazine recognizes Atlanta as one of the few
oasis in a desert of apathy. Because Mayor Allen, Dan Sweat,
Cecil Alexander and Malcolm Jones have pushed us far ahead of
other cities.
But still not far enough. Even the Mayor's crash program falls short of help in the area of the greatest need: units
that will rent or sell for $30 to $50 a month.
So what can be done?
Here is what WSB Television considers some key recommendations:
The Federal Housing Act
some loans for home ownerships at
there's not enough money for this
other housing programs. Congress
the money.
of 1968 allows the FHA to make
one per cent interest! But
project - or for many of the
must see the crisis - and vote
Building ·codes must be updated to allow for new, more
economical assembly-line building techniques and materials.
Building trade unions must stop discriminating and
start.helping to train mo~e · workmen.
_ Private enterprise must b~ able to build truly low cost
housing at a profit. Senator Robert Kennedys suggestions for
t ax benefits offer the best hope for that.

�r
What private enterprise so far has not built in Atlanta,
must then be built as public housing. And some of this public
housing can be built in present slum pockets even in Northside
Atlanta.
One of the most difficult problems in Atlanta is to
find land at a reasonable price zoned for apartments.
WSB Television suggests the expressways. That's right the expressways! Not on the pavement during rush hour traffic.
But in the air space over the freeways!
Not only is it possible to build housing over the
expressways but it has been done in other cities. The land is
already.owned by the government. And the government encourages
use of the valuable air space for such necessary urban projects
as housing.
Incidentally, for rapid transit, too.
Without the expressways, only 200 to 400 acres inside
Atlanta are zoned for apartments. With the air space over the freeways there would be a minimum of 2,700 acres of expressway rightof-way within the city of Atlanta. Already there's plenty of
parking available e very rush hour.

IMPLICATIONS OF THE 1968 HOUSING ACT
The National Housing Act passed b y the Congress on August
1, 1968 , renffirms the national goal in the 1949 Housing Act, o f
"a decent home and a s uitable living environment for every
American family".
Px'ivate i ndustry has been cha l lenged to provide six
mil l ion addi ti ona l housing units during the next ten years for
low and modera te i ncome f ami lies. The 196 8 legislation provides
the t oo ls and incentives and success ·in meeting the national
o bj ect ive will large l y de pend on:

Municipal coo peration
Fundi nE by the Congress in 1968 .
Bui lding coda and zoning restrict i ons.
Sec ti on 238: The 1968 Rousing Act established a new Special
Ri s k Ins ura nce Fund wh ich permits the Federa l Housing
Administrati on t o assume higher mortgage insurance ris ks in
connection with b o th location and credit cha r acteristics that
were unacce p ta bl e under the mut u al mortgage sec ti ons of the
Act. This should widen b ot h the housing and the mortgage sect i o ns .
o f the Act. This shou ld wide n b oth the housing and the mort ga ge
mark et.
Secti on 237 : Provides, on an experimental basis, FHA
mortgage i nsuranc e to f inance homeownership f o r certain lower
income families who cannot q u a lify under normal standards because
of their pas t credit records , but who can me e t mortgage
payments with appr o priate budget and financi al counseling .
,,
Section 23 6 : Under this rental housing p rogram the tenant
o r c ooperator will pay at least 25 pe r centum o f his family
income towards the market rent or the ba sic rent , whichever
is greater . The basic r cmta l is d etermined o n the basis of
o perating the p ro·ec t with p ayments to principal and interest
on a leve l annuity plan a t l percent intere st . NUD pays the
mortgagee the difference between the amount collect ed from the
occ upa nt and a fair market monthly rental determined on the basis
of operating the p roj0ct with pa yraents o f pri nci pal , interest
and mortgage insurance premium required on a level annuity
mortgage at the market interest rate. There will be no subsidy
f or the modera te income tenants . Maximum mortgage amounts 100% of FHA cost to nonprofit and 90% for p ro fit motivated
sponsors. 40 year term.
Limited to families whose incomes are
not in excess of 135% of initial admission levels of public
housing.

The above i s on l y a part ial outl i ne o f Section 236 .
The regulations cover a wide segment o f r e ntal housing financing
and the mortgage insurance terms are liberial. The Act
authoriz ed $ 7 5 , 000 , 000 to July l , 1969 , but o nly $25 , 000 , 000
has bee n funded .
These funds will likely be all oc ated very
rapidly t o pr o p os ed re nta l and c ooperative p ro jects. There
is no requ irement for a Workable Pr ogr am .
\
\
\
Section 23 5: Thismc tion places heavy e mphasis on home
o wners h ip and pr ovides t hat if the purchaser of a new home or
a living units :in a condomimium will p ay at l east 20% o f the
famil y's inc ome , HUD will pay the balance of the montbly

UNFI N.ISHED BUS I NESS
There are many u nfinished phases of the initial program
which need t he continui ng existance of c ci t izens ' group t o
help with t he completion of the program .
Some of them are :
1.
Comp let · on of projects now in planning.
2.
Le g·s latio n pendi ng th2t will allow the city
to lea s e sc hoo l G to be built by developers
simulta neous_y wi th housing projects, except
in urban renewal areas .
3.

restrictions on innovative bu ilding .
4.
Activation o f Board for the Greater Atlanta
Hous ing De v el opme nt Cor p oration .
5.
Ob taining of additional sites in areas where
low income housing i s needed.
It s hould be b orne in ni nd 1 that whi le this program is
apparen•tly in g ood shape, that many of the p ro jects still ne ed
s hepherding . There are many force s trying to bl oc k housing in
~tlanta and any faltering in continuing efforts might well
decimate thG final a ccoaplishment of the erection of the 16,300

�Report of Legal Panel
December 9 1 1968
In brief, the achievements and activities of the Legal Panel
in the year to date have been as follows:
(1) Advocacy, drafting, and passage by the Atlanta
School Board of a local constitutional amendment to allow the
City of Atlanta , through its local School Board, to lease school
buildings for a term longer than that of the City Councila The
research on this project was done by Freeman Hutton and the Chairman
of this Committee, and was presented by the Chairman to the School
Board on June 28, 19680 The School Board passed the concept of
leasing school buildings from private developers for a long-term in
principal, and directed Mro A. C. Latimore, the school board attorney,
in conjunction with the Legal Panel to draft the specific local
constitutional amendmento
The advantage of this local constitutional amendment
would be that school facilities could be provided in a low-cost
housing project in the form of rental payments over a term of years,
thus alleviating the need of the School Board to construct a school
f acility at high initial costs, and thus providing the project with
necessary community facilitieso The most oft-used excuse in opposition
to zoning property for low-cost housing is that no school facilities
would be available; an objection which would become moot after passage
of the constitutional amendment, in that the School Board would lease
with litt l e dimi nution in its bonds' credit .
Upon compl et i on of the draft i ng, the amendment will
t hen be s ubmitted to the School Board sometime in early 1969, for
formal appr oval so t ha t it can be readied for the 1970 Legislatur e
a nd subs equent referendumo As a practica l ma tter, the leasing
arrangements in Urban areas wil l probabl y be r equ i r e d to conta in an
option to purchase vested in the School Board , to c i rcumvent HUD
requirements, in that City credi t agains t Federal Funds could only
be allowed in structures which were a public faci l i t y ; a ccording t o

Interest is increasing in development of home-ownership h ousing.
D. In vie w 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 subst a ntial poJ·tion

E. No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell f or as low as $50 per month,
alth ough the London Towne Houses, a 221 d (3) co-op development now under construction, is approaching this, with its one bedro1m

in 1968, 884 have been completed which is 21 times the number of
housing units in urban renewal a:reas completed the previous year .
During the same pe:iriod, only 484 units we:re demoli shed in urban
renewal areas. So, for the first time in the history of Atlanta' s
urban renewal program. more housing units were completed in urban

ACCOMPLISHMENTS
November 15, 1968, marked the comp l etion of the first two
years• activity of the Housing Resources Committee in its efforts
to pr()!llote and 5Cceler~te the Low•income Housing ~rogr~m in
Atlanta,
The 5 year goal of 15,800 l ow and medium income housing units
announced by the Mayor in his Housing Conference establishing the
HRC on November 15, 1966 , is now in the pipe line, This figure
was based on anticipated replacement needs caused by Governmental
action during 1907•71 , and did not take into consideration normal
growth, f ormation of new families and in-migration.
'Th e November 15 revision of the re port on status o f the low
~nd medium income housing progr~m shows:
Comi9le ted
Under Co ns truction
In ?l~nning
In Sight
3 ,217 u nits
6 ,278 units
7 1 337 units
16 ,832 units
Total
This slightly exceeds (by 32 units) the 5 yeaT goal of 1 6 ,800
units and is only 3~5 units short, in the first two c2tegories, of
the anticipated need for 9 1 800 units during the first two years
of the program.
�2
It is anticipated that most of t he 7,337 units ln Pl anning
will materializeo However, in the event that some may fall by
the way side, there are an additional 6 ,215 units Be i ng Considered r
which will more than compensate for any units now in the In
Pla nning category wh ich may be l ost to the program.
The Summary (Encl 2) shows that the "coals for all phases o f
the 5 year program are being mets with the e x ception of Pub lic
Ho us ing which is currently 4 , 100 units behindo

It is nlso suggested that consideration be given to
plncing the functions of the Housing Resources Committee with
the Citizens Advisory Committee for Urbnn Renewal or ns a
part of ~n activated Urban Coalition.
UNFIN.1SHED BUSINESS
There are many unfinished phases of the initial program
which need the continu i ng existance of n citizens• group to
help with the completion of the program. Some of them are:
1.
Completion of projects now in planning.
2.
Legislation pendi ng t ha t will allow the city
to l ease schools to be built by developers
simultaneously with housing projects, except
in urban renew~l areas.
3.
Investigation of problems relatin8 to code
restrictions on innovative building.
4.
~ctivation of Board for the Greater htlanta
Housing Development Corporation.
5.
Obtaining of additional sites in areas where
l ow income housing is needed.
It should be borne in mind, that while this program is
~pparently in good sha pe , that many of the projects still need
shepherding. There are many forces trying to bloc k housing in
Atlanta and any faltering in continuing efforts might well
decimate the final a ccomplishment of the erection of the 16,800
units.
I wish to close by thanking Col. Jones, William Gates of
our staff, the raembers of our cor:imi ttee who worked eilligently
during t he past two yesrs ~ nd such members as Archer Smith , Lee
Burge , Cl 3re nc e Coleman, Cha r les Palmer , Robe rt Winn snd D~le
Cla r 1 immediately come to mind ar:1ong many otbe•e. This has
truly been a work ing Commit tee . We also thank the Atlanta
Housing Authority , the Pl anning Department , the Building
Department, Public Works Department , members of the Board of
Ald0rr:1en , Ma yor Al len and the members of t he Press , Radio and
TV Organizat ions . Not to be forgott e n are the developers and
nonprofit groups who have in the last analysis made the program
possible.

�Report of Legal Panel
Decemb er 9 ~ 1968
. I
I
In brief$ the ach i evements and act i vities of the Legal Panel
in tbe year-to date have been as follows~
(1) Advocacy, drafting and passage by the Atlanta School
Board of a local constitutional amendment to allow the City of Atlanta,
through its local School Board, to lea se school buildings for a term
longer than that of the Ci t y Councilo The research on this project
was done by Freeman Hutton and the Chairman of this Committee, and
was presented by the Chairman to the School Board on June 28, 19680
The 3chool Board passed the concept of leasing school buildings from
private developer s for a long-term in principal, and directed
Mr~ Ao C. Latimer" the schocl board attorney~ in conjunction with
the Legal Panel
draft the specific local constitutional -amendmento
to
The a dvantage of this local constitutional amendment
would be that school facilities could be provided in a low-cost housing
project in the form of xental payments over a term of years, thus
alleviating the need of the School Board to construct a school facility
at high initial costs, and thus providing the project with necessary
community fa c i lit ies o The most oft-used ex cuse in opposition to
zoning proper ty f or low- cost housing is that no school f acilities
would be available; a n obj e ction which would b e come moot after
passage of the constitutional amendment, in that the School Board
would lease with little diminution in its bonds' credito
Upon completion of the d rafting, t he amendment will
then be submitted to the School Board sometime in early 1969, for
formal approval so that it can be rea died for the 1970 Legislature
and subsequent referendumo As a practical matter, the leas ing
arrangements in Urban areas will probably be required to contain an
option to purchase vested i n the School Board in that City credit
against Federal Funds could only b e al lowed in structures which were
a public facility; ac cording to Mr Neil Zi ttrauer, o f the Depar tment

GREATER ATLANTA HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
CORPORATION
The Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation is a non-profit, tax-exempt
organization, whose primary objective is to assist non-profit sponsors and private
developers, as well, in carrying out programs to serve the housing needs of Atlanta's
low-income and moderate-income families.
·
The corporation was established under the auspices of the Atlanta Chamber of
Commerce in June, 1968, with financial support from the Chamber ($10,000) for the
initial funding of the corporation's operations. In close cooperation with the Chamber
were Central Atlanta Progress, Inc., key persons of the Mayor' s Housing Resources
Committee, and others.
It was the intent of the Chamber's Board of Directors, in establishing the corporation,
to seek a broad base of leaders1?,ip and financial involvement from throughout the Atlanta
business community. Toward this end, a number of the city's leading business citizens
have been invited to participate in the funding of the corporation, and there has been gratifying response.
The Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation will aid sponsors of housing
programs in several ways: Interpretation and explanation of programs available under
current housing legislation; advisory help and coordination of the development functions,
such as assistance in selecting an architect, attorney, engineer, contractor, developer
and financial institution for construction loans -- seeking, in each case, those experienced
in the type project selected; and helping to arrange and negotiate "seed money" loans for
expenses for such services above set out which are incurred before mortgage proceeds
become available.
These services are being provided through the corporation's Executive Director, who
is highly knowledgeable in housing finance, project development and management, judgment
of the feasibility of projects, technical aspects of Federal Housing Administration procedures,
and communication with the business community and p.eighborhood groups.
Arrangement and negotiation of short-term "seed money" loans will result in a
reduction of the sponsor's risk and thereby stimulate the construction of sales and rental
housing for lower income families and promote rehabilitation of substandard housing.
(One prime source of seed money, or 1 ifront end" loans, is to be Atlanta Civic Enterprises,
Inc., an organization of ten larger businesses which have created a pool of resources to
help solve the local need for housing. Atlanta Civic Enterprises, Inc., is in agreement
with the method of approach being undertaken by' the corporation.)
The loan fund administered by Atlanta Civic Enterprises fills this need for seed money,
which can be loaned at less than the market rate of interest -- with some type of security -and will be generally supplemented to some extent by the non- profit sponsor. It will be a
revolving fund, as funds disbursed for the permanent loan are used to repay the seed money,
or front end, loans.

Housing Development Corporation - 2

Cost of operations will initially be provided from the funding support of the Atlanta
Chamber of Commerce and members of the Atlanta business community. However, the
corporation is anticipated to become self- sustaining from the fees or other charges for
the technical services rendered. Such charges, as a part of the project cost, would be
paid from the proceeds of permanent loans.
Already, in some FHA projects which have the 100 per cent loan provision, a
consultant fee is allowed for inclusion in the cost and payable when mor tgage money
is available. The Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporati on ost ensibly would
qualify for such fees in many instances.
The housing legislation passed by Congress permits non-profit organizat ions, such
as churches, civic organizations, unions and others, to sponsor projects of building or
rehabilitating housing for low to moderate income fan1ilies, with loans up to 100 per cent
of the costs at interest rates, in some cases, as low as 1 per cent.
Despite 100 per cent financing, the initial costs of architect fees, attorney fees,
engineering studies, FHA fees, land options and other costs must be paid before mortgage
proceeds become available. These front end expenditures can amount to as much as 4
per cent of the total project cost but are reimbursable when mortgage money becomes
available. Lack of funds to meet these ·e xpenses often seriously delays or completely
rules out projects by non-profit sponsors.
Executive Director of the non-profit corporation is Mr. Robert Watkins, formerly
owner of Industrial Service Company and with a background in the construction business.
Offices of the corporation are located at 2742 First National Bank Building, adjacent to
the offices of Central Atlanta Progress, Inc . , which is providing secretarial help as well
as office space for the new corporation.
