units are listed in this report, as Lost. (The majority, but not all, of these losses was due to disapprovals of sites and
proposed rezoningo)
B. Proposed locations for lo~- :in::cme housing are coordinated through the Plan. Dept., for adequacy of Community Facilities, e xist ing or

Interest is increasing in d evelopment of home-ownership housing.
f or financing low-cost homes at fav orable rates.
D. I n vie w o f 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 wil l have to lean heavily on Develop ers and Builders provid ing a sub s t2ntial poJ~tion
of the requirement on small sc at te r ed sites, both Conventionally and Federal assisted.
E . No proposal had yet been made for coristruction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell f or as low as $50 per mo11th,
al t h o u gh the London Towne Houses 9 a 221 d (3) co-op development now under construct i on, is approaching this, with its one bedro,,m
u nit selling at $ 69 per montho The City's greatest need~ hthe $ 30-$50 per month rental-purchase rangei which appears to have
lit tle c ha nce of a ccomplis hme nt 9 without governmental subsidy.
F . Pr e fab distrib t o rs and conventi o nal builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of :fear o f local Codes
d i fficul t ie~ are c urrently producing very few single-f ami ly houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for which th(!re
i s a strong demand and market . Perha ps the greatest difficulty i s availability of suitably priced land withi n the City Limit s.
Eco n omics for t his price - range s ales housing requires l and which wil l not cost the developer more than $1,500 per unit, (a 5 , 00()
