The attached report of Peter Labrie is not as
conclusive as it might be. For instance 3
under R e comme nd a tion s - Schools, item (1),
he is correct, of course, in stating there was
no spring bond issue ; however 3 Dr. Womack
of the School Department has informed me that
the improvement to Archer High is being done
anyway from othe r funds and that it will b e
r eady and a mple to s e rve the proposed Brow ntown Road project when developed •

The r e also appe ar r to b e some other items in
somewh a t sim ila r c a t e gory 3 w h erei n the com ple t e
s itua tion is n ot amply expla ine d i n a po s itive
manne r. For example : Johnny Rob ins on
informs me that the transit system study looks

Mr. Robert Dobbs, Chairman
Citizens Neighborhood Action Committee
Northwest-Perry Homes Service Center
1927HollywoodRoad, N. W.
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mr. Dobbs:
As you know, the City of Atlanta has responded in a positiv·e manner
to improvement of deficiencies in community facilities in the general
Perry Boulevard - Hollywood Road, N. W. area, which were so ably
pointed out by yourself and neighborhood groups in the area.
The propo sed re-zoning of the Browntown Roa d site for a well
planned multi-unit housing d evelopment was deferred last fall and
is curr ently being d e layed in c onsideration of the objections then
rais ed by the citizens of the area, becaus e of the lack of community
facilities.
You are, of course, aware that as a direct result, the Planning
D epartment prepared a special study of the area, pointing up the
deficiencies that then existed and making s pecific recommendations
for impr ovements in the area. These recommendations were set
forth on pages 24, 25, and 26 of the Browntown area report.
A survey of the status of implementa-.:ion of the recommendations
contained in the Browntown area report has recently been made and
it was found that many of the recommended improvements have
already been accomplished, others have been initiated and are
now being carried out, while plans are in existence for making
additional improvements as soon as circumstances and funds permit.
A copy of this status report is attached.
�Mr. Dobbs
Page Two
May 10, 1968
I think you will agree with me that considerable progress has been
madeo The credit for these improvements is due in a large measure
to the helpful assistance and cooperation of the responsible citizens
of the area, whom you represent.
If Atlanta is to continue to progress and provide decent housing for all
of its citizens, we cannot afford to wait indefinitely for all desirable
improvements. Many of these will have to be deyeloped simultaneously
with development of the housing to serve the areas involvedo The
City of Atlanta is committed to such a program.
~ The Browntown Road site location has been approved by both HUD and
the Housing Authority. It is designed to house 450 low and moderate
income families for which decent, safe and sanitary housing is
desperately needed. We cannot indefinitely deny these families
a suitable plac e to liveo
--_;iivv
In view of all that has already been accomplished and currently planned
in the nature of improvements for this area, I would very much like
to see you and other responsible citizens of the area:
L
Write a letter to the Chairman of the Zoning Committee (with
a copy to me) withdrawing your earlier objections to the
proposed Browntown Road Turnkey development and request
that it now be initiated.
2.
Should you and others working with you not be able to submit
a positive recommendation for the project, then I solicit
your cooperation in not publicly further opposing it, when it
comes up for reconsideration.
In the event that you cannot see your way clear to follow either of the
courses of action indicated above, I see nothing left for those of us
responsible for deyelopment of low income housing than to recommend
at an early date the rezoning of this site, which I propose to do; and
intend to support it to the bes,t of my ability. I hope that this will
�Mr. Dobbs

not be necessary and that you can see your way clear to carry out
proposal (1) indicated above.

�MINUTES
HOUSING RESOURCES E IBCUTIVE COMMITTEE AND
LOW-INCOME HOUSING COORDINATING GROUP MEETING
March
14, 1968
The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Coordinating Group and
Housing Resources Committee Executive Group was held in Committee Room 2,
City Hall, March 14, 1968, at 10 a.m.
Thirteen (13) members of the Housing Resources Committee Executive
Group; seven (7) invited key individuals concerned with Low-income Housing;
three i3) other :L~vited guests; three (3) developers; and members of the
Press attended the meeting. List of those invited, with attendance incµcated,
is attached to the file copy of these minutes. Also attached to the file
copy of these minutes are copies of invitational notices sent out for the
meeting and the agenda used at the meeting.
Chairman Alexar.der presided.
Mr. Alexander opened the meeting by stating that there are two matters
under consideration:
(1) There is going to be a Conference on Equal Opportunity in Housing
to be co-sponsored by the tlanta Federal Executive Board and other voluntary organizations. Twenty-five (25) organizations have signed up as cosponsors i.e. Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta, CACUR, Community Relations
Commission, Interfaith Housing Corporation, Georgia Council of Human
Relations and many others. He mentioned the fact that the Mayor is backing
this conference . The primary purpose of this conference will be educational.
This conference will seek to bring those of different backgrounds and viewpoints around the table to discuss the problems - to have Atlanta people
talk to Atlanta people. Broad participation by organizations and individuals
throughout Metropolitan area will be encouraged. He read to the Group the
objectives contained in brochure passed out by :t'ir. Nat Welch at the March
12 preliminary meeting called by the Federal Executive Board.
Mr . Alexander made a suggestion that the Housing Resources Committee
might become a co-sponsor of the conference by lending their name as cosponsor without going on recor d as to how the Housing Resources Committe911
feels about the matter.
Mr. Palmer made a motion that the HRC be a co-sponsor of the conference
on Equal Opportunities in Housing on this basis; the motion was seconded and
Committee voted on and approved the motion..
(2) Mr. Alexander then proposed that a Resolution be drawn up tc,.request
that an Aldermanic Committee be established on Housing. He stated that a call
should be made to either set up a separate Aldermanic Committee or to take
�housing into an existing committee which would concentrate its efforts on the
Low-income Housing Program. He stated that at present we have the Planning
and Development Committee under Yir. Cook; however, housing is not one of their
specific concerns. He said that he felt having an interested and responsive
gr oup in the Aldermanic Board would be very beneficial to the program.
Mr. Archer Smith made a motion that the Mayor be requested to set up
a Committee f or, or refer to an existing committee, consideration of the
~lty 1 s Program on Low-income Housing. The motion was s econded and carried!
Mr . Alexander t hen asked Hr. Collier Gladin to explain the Land Use
Map and its effect 0 :1 the Low-income Housing Program. He mentioned that of
some 54 sites bei ng consider ed for this program only 12 are consistant with
the Land Use Map,
Mr . Gl adin explai ned that the Land Use Map represents a distribution of
our portion of the growth that we anticipate coming into the City by 1983.
The acreage shown on the map is to absorb the anticipated growth of 150,000
people. This Plan should encourage greater density of housing and at same time
protect single f amily r esidential areas. Parks and other s ervices are planned
i n advance of all this growth. This Plan ser ves as a guide to housing, schools,
parks and s ewer r equi r ements. He said this was not a zoning map; just a guide.
He stat ed this plan does not indicat e rapid transit. Detailed changes will be
made as they become necess~ y. He said the Mayor's statement that this Plan
was a "policy guide on which we can build" is a good description.
Mr . Alexander asked how many additional acres were for housing?
Mr . Gladin didn 't have the answer available at the meeting.
Mr. Alexander asked if an owner of pr operty came in and applied for
rezoni ng wi thout a developer, what would happen? He asked if there was anything
in the Ordinance that r equired t hey have to be ready to develop?
Mr. Gl adin said that when a reques t i s received, it will be farmed out f or
considerat i on. Recommendation of School Department and others concerned will
be consi der ed .
Mr . Jones asked if a proposal is br ought in f or rezoni ng a sit e and the
t ype of development is cons istant with what is projected in 1983 on the Land
Use Map, in g2ner al coul d t he developer anticipat e f avorable considerat i on by
the Plannins Dep&rtr.~rmt and Zoning Commi ~t ee?
Mr . Gladin r e~pondcd t hat the Planning Department will suppor t pr oposals
along these lines ~
Mr. Alexander then sai d t hat being the case, when a developer comes in
with a proj ect f or a s ite that i s in conformance with the Land Use Map and
we think is a good pr oj ect he f elt the HRC should therefore support i t.
�3
Mr . Winn asked what effect the Land Use Plan would have on the plans of
54 sites of which only 12 were in conformance with the plan .
Mr. Alexander said it would probably hurt us.
Mr. Jones said we would have to realign our plans,
Mr. Gladin asked how many Rcres were in the 12 sites that were in conformance with the Land Use Plan,
Mr. Jones said approximately 320 acres.
Mr. Gladin said that maybe we should take a look at the number of units
that have actually been built. He stated that many proj ects had been planned,
but not actually built yet, and that some sites had also been turned down for
reasons other than zoning,
Yir. Palmer asked if the Land Use Plan shows sites in any instance that
the Aldermanic Board has already turned down? (They are not indicated
specifically as such.)
Mr. Archer Smith said if there are particular projects in this general
connection, that the HRC should send advocates to Aldermanie Board and Zoning
Committee to support them. Mr. Smith also stated that he felt the HRC should
act as advocate at the Zoning and Planning Commission levels for particular
low-income housing pr ojects which conform to the 198J projections of the Land
Use Map of the Planning Department of the City,
Mr . Jones brought out the point that the HRC should not be required to
suppor t all developments that are in conformance with the Land Use Map ; that
proposalsmight not be appr opriate,
Mr . Archer Smith then suggested that an addendum be added to the Resoluti on
s tating that the res olution would not exclude the HRC f r om supporting proj ects
that are not in conformance wi t h the Land Use Map.
After considerable discussion, it was concl uded that t he Resolut ion not
be amended, as this would t end t o weaken it.
It was then decided and agreed t hat Mr. Alexander and Mr, Archer Smith
would get together and draw up specific wording of a Resolution stating that
the HRC would give its support to develophients of low-income housing by going
before the Planning Board and Zoning Committee of the Aldermanic Boo.rd. The
following is the Resolution developed.
"Housing Resources Committee will support and advocate in each instanca
before the Zoning Committee and the Aldermanic Board those appropriately
planned development projects which conform to the 1983 Land Use Map of the
City Planning Department, as it _Presently exists or is hereafter a~rnded,»-·
�4
Mr. Pclmer asked for a list for Mr. Clarence CQleman by March 20 of
major proj:scts that hact--been. .turned down already by Zoning Committee or
Aldermanic Board, but which now might be desirable in view of the Land Use
Mnp,
Mr. Jones sru.d he could give him a partial list by that date.
Mr. Alexander asked about this npproach in terms of the Turnkey Program.Mr. Persells said it might be a means of finding more land for development for this program. He stated th2t consideration should be given by builders
to what sorts of people will live in the housing; that developers may determine
whether they could mnke more money building for low-income or high income people
as both types of housing are needed in Atlanta. However, he suggested that
zoning should be on basis of appropriateness of the area to meet the long term
requirements of the City as to location, density, schools, parks, etc., and
not on the basis of what kind of people will occupy the units; that when we
reach the point of zoning on plans for future utilization of the land, rather
than on who is to use or live there, we would be much better off.
Mr. Alexander asked Mr~ Persolls if this Land Use Map was going to be
used by the Housing Authority as a guide?
Mr. Persells indicated that it had been us ed; however, the Housing
Authority does not turn down a project simply because it does not conform to
the Map.
Mr. Alexander then discussed the role of the Housing Authority further.
He stated that we are ahead on the 221 program and Rehabilitation phas e , but
behind about 2500 units on Turnkey and Public Housing.
Mr. Bystry asked if HUD had checked any of these areas for Public Housing?
Mr . Gladin stat ed thct the City is r equired to maintain a Land Use Plan
under the Workable Program. The problems are finding more sites and get ting
t hem zoned; that turnk ey proj ects must go through HUD in getting appr ovnls.
Mr . Alexander asked from the developer s point of view for the pros n.nd
cons of Turnkey ver sus the 221 program. He asked if the 221 program w~s more
appealing to developers than the Turnkey program.
Mr. W. L. Moore said getting l ruid zoned f or Publ ic Housi ng is more difficult .·
Mr. Alexander asked about economix ( a mixture of Public Housing.,. 221 d ( 3).,
and single frunily dwellings) t o be developed in one area,
Mr. Persells said the Housing Authority preferred to have that kind of
mixture. However, each program would require separate mortgages and separate
approvals and that it would be a complicated process,
Mr. Bystry said t.his might delay the program,
.,
�5
Mr. Alexander stated that much stronger support would be likely if
particularly large tracts were developed under the 221 program with only a
smaller portion of the tract for public use.
Mr. Noorc stated that the biggest problem wa s the high cost of land in
Atlante! and the difficulty of financing l and under the 221 d (3) program and;
secondly getting the land zoned. He f elt that this type financing (interim
construction lonns a t reasonable interest rates) might be encouraged by this
Committee . He also suggest ed that perhaps banks and other financing institutions might be encouraged to set aside a certain amount or percent of their
money for fin ancing of low-income hous ing. He mentioned the fact tha t
insurance compani e s ar c nc:iw participatL:g in fi nan cing of this type.
Mr. Alexender said that most of the l arge banks in Atlanta are repres ented
on this Committee . He stated that perh~ps the Business Participation Panel could
do something about encouraging this type of financing.
Yir. Alexander then welcomed Mr. Richard Ce cil, who was r epres enting Mr.
William C. Bartholomay, Prosident of the Atlanta Braves, and newGst member of
the Business Participa tion Panel; and Mr. Robert C. Hatkins, newest member
of the Construction and Design Panel.
Mr. Al exander praised th§ persistant efforts of the developers in the
face of so many problems and roadblocks. He stated that the City of Atlanta
owes the developers a great debt for their contribution to this program.
Demi Jackson brought up the ques tion "Who is r esponsible for physical
s tructures in terms of r e creational or social needs in a housing development?
Is this the responsibility of the developer?"
Mr. Alexander stated that on the National scene, the Community is
responsible.
Mr. Jones expl ained th.:it in Public Housing pr oj e cts , Federal regulntions
require certain consideration be given to open space and recreational faciliti es .
He pointed out that t hi s wa s also given consideration by the Planning Department
in regards to zoning; that the Planning Board its elf has turned down projects
tha t did not provide enough spa ce or recreational facilities. He stated that
the social elements were being given more consideration today than ever before.
Mr. Alexander commented that there is c gap tn social services to be
performed in low income housing proj e cts and suggested that the Community
Council and non-profit groups such ns Interfaith may fill tho gap of social
planning. He asked for a report from Dean Jackson's Committee Fl.S to proposals
for social planning in low income housing.
YJr. Palmer mentioned that there was t l,000 set aside to see how practical
it would be to bring available recreational activitie s to Senior Citizens •
.
�6
Mr. Alexander stated that according to our figures, Public Housing is
running behind schedule and asked for any suggestions that might be helpful.
Nr. Persells said this .-ms definitely not because of lack of interest on
the part of developers, but the difficulty of obtaining a piece of land to
present that is properly zoned. He stated that a project should not be selfcontninod, but be part of a whole community; that recreational facilities
should be available to entire neighborhoods.
Mr. Alexander announced that he would appoint a Comnri.ttee of three to
study the "Analysis of Atlanta's Low-income Housing Program," dated February 7,
1968, which would make· a report of recommendations back to the Executive Group.
Mr. Alexander mentioned that package rezoning is still under consideration.
He stated that one of the problems is so much land in this area that could be
developed in this program that might receive favorable recommendation by HUD,
but be politically opposed by others. ·
Mr. Moore asked if there was any way to subsidize, such as limited
dividend?
Mr. Alexander stated that John Steinichen of Interfaith was looking for
proposals.
Mr. Palmer asked if anyone had tried to get the land in the Southwest
quadrant that is artificially overzoned industrial, rezoned for a more reasonable price?
Mr. Moore stated tha t on one particular site, Mr. Shuttleworth would
probably recommend multi-family. The price on this land has come up to
industrial, He also stated that in certain Wards, 221 d ()) houses are not
allowed because of opposition from Aldermen in those Wards•

�A RESOLUTION
The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, through the work of the
Chamber's Housing and Redevelopment Committee, has supported vigorously from
the outset the efforts of the Mayor's Housing Resources Committee to relieve the
city's shortage of housing for low income families.
As a result of its investigation of this problem, the Housing and Redevelopment
Committee delivered to this Board in August, 1967 a report entitled "The Low-Rent
Housing Gap in Atlanta," which included specific information underlining the critical
nature of the housing need. This Board was informed by the report that the process
of rezoning land suitable and feasible for multi-family, low-rent housing appears to
be the single most difficult obstacle in the task of providing, during a five-year
period, some 16,800 units of the type hoµsing required. The Board also was made
aware that available vacant land is scarce within the City of Atlanta for any use , and
outlying areas have not seen fit to qualify for programs which allow construction of
federally-insured housing of the type which would help meet the current need.
·
A resolution by this Board in September , 1967 urged immediate steps by the
City of Atlanta Planning Department and the Board of Aldermen to adopt an updated

land use plan, from which a new zoning ordinance could be evolved . The resolution
further declared: " ... Any new zoning plan adopted by the City of Atlanta should make
provision for adequate land for multi-family housing and open up land for increased
density of housing in all quadrants of the city, in order to serve the best interests
of a changing and progressive City of Atlanta."
Since that time, diligent study has been given by the Atlanta Chamber of Comm erce
to a proposed "package zoning plan, " the purpose of which would be to rezone simultaneously several sites of land throughout the city for development in public housi ng .
Be it resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors reiterates its position in support of dispersing multi-family housing to all quadrants
of the city. iff'()weve1- ;-n-eithe1 • thts"'Boai'd"'fl

And be it fur ther resolved that the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Board of Director s
supports the principle of the package z oning proposal as an approach well wor th considering toward the efforts to alleviate this serious problem in our community.

I h :ve contacted Mr . Bowden as to whether, under the Cooperation Agreement
the City would be obligated to provide off site improvements for essential
facilities for 'l'urnkey projects ., as it is obligated to do for conventional Public
Housing projects? Mr. Bowden has suggested that Hr . Satterfield attempt to
determine informally from the Federal people 11hether they will allow inclusion
0£ such off site improvements in the purchase price of Turnkey projects. Mr.
tterfield has agreed to discuss this matter with local HU officials and mil
advise me of their position.

MEMORANDUM
To:
Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr.
Director of Governmental Liaison
From:
Mal colm D. Jones
Considerable thought and effort has gone into development of the attached
Analysis of Atlanta 's Low-income Housing Program.
From experience gained during the f irst year of the program, I am convinced
that current policy and procedures are inadequate to meet requirements of the
program; and if the program is to succeed, some changes will have to be made.
The attached Analysis proposes adoption of ten (10) changes from current
pro cedure, none of whi ch ~
rash or radical, and I believe that each of the
recommended changes would make a worthwhile contribution to the overall eff ort.
I would like for this Analysis to be considered by you, the Mayor and the
Housing Resources Committee (I have a copy for both Cecil Alexander and the Mayor).
I intend to suggest to Cecil that this Analysis be taken up with the Executive
Group of the Housing Resources Committee and, if f avorably considered, that a
formal recommendation for its implementation be made by the Committee to the
Mayor.
Sincerely,
Mal colm D. Jones

Analysis
�HOUSING RESOUR CES COMMITTEE
February 7, 1968
An
Analysi e of Atlanta ' s Low-income Hous ine Program
and Proposed Procedures for Its Improvement
Although the most recent report (copy attached) of the Housing Resources
Committee on t he status of the Low-income Housing Program shows good progress
t o dat e , the cream has already been skimmed· from the initial potential and
prospects f or the future of the program look extremely dim.
This analysis is lengthy but is justified by the gravity of the current
s ituation and the necessity for adequately explaining each of the features
proposed herein.
There is no need to dwell here on the major problem areas involved such
as neighborhood objections, zoning, Federal policy, funding, etc., as we all
are quite familiar with them.
The resulting effect however is very disturbing.
Substantial land promoters, developers, and builders on _whom we must rely
for actual developments are losing interest in the proeram and are directing
their major efforts elsewhere. and in other fields not involved with the difficulties encountered locally in attempted production of low-income housing.
Without their continued active participation it will be extremely difficult to
meet the alre ady established goals for the program (and it 'now appears that even
t hese goals may not be adequate ).
Our policy to date has been to follow prevailing established procedures by
depending on the land promoters and developers to select the sites, take options
on the land, attempt to get it rezoned if require~ and then develop the site.
This procedure places t he entire initiative on private enterprise and l eaves in
their hands primary responsibility for overcoming neighborhood objections and
pol itical resistan ce.
work.
This is good, if it works, but f r equently i t does not
This also habitually places the City in a vulnerable defensive and embar-
rassing position, if the efforts of ·private enterprise do 'not succeed, and
discourases other developers. if This is happenin~ entirely too of ten for continuation
of a healthy progressive program which is sorely needed in Atlanta.
�2
Instance after instance can be cited where the above has occurred.
Some of
the more prominent specific cases which have suffered or failed under this policy
are:
Browntown, Butler Street YMCA, Sewell Road, Browns Mill Road, Empire Drive.,
Golfview, Wilson Mill Road, East Lake #2 and Wellswood Apartments sites.
(The
last one was considered under the leasing progTam.)
In fact, most of the 8,266 units proposed, which did not materialize (see
Note A of Low-income Housing Invento:::-y Report of January
15) can be attribu:ted to
strong objections from one or more groups under our current private enterprise
sponsored, hit or miss, development procedure.
The availability of land, one of the critical elements, which can be obtained
at prices developers can afford to pay and still make a profit from their venture,
is rapidly becoming a vital issue within the City limits of Atlanta.
This factor
a],one is primarily responsible for the lack of current development in single family
sales housing for •low and moderate income families, although there is a great
demand and substantial market for this category of housing in Atlanta.
The rapid growth of the City and phenomenal rate of new construction is fast
limiting the desirable sites on which low-income housing can be located in Atlanta,
from both an economic and public relations standpoint.
It is evident that in the past the procedure of letting nature take its course
by depending entirely on private enterprise to initiate propos ed locations for lowincome housing and then carry the ball on obtaining the necessary approvals and
zoning changes, is not adequate to insure success of the Low-income Housing Program •
..
This is particularly true of Turnkey sites for Public Housing.
A few specific examples clearly illustrate this:
(a)
Attempted rezoning of the Browntown site for
450
units under the
Turnkey program has been delayed until July 1, 1968 for further consideration at
that time as to positive provisions for the timely construction of essential
community facilities, one of which is an Elementary School to be built on the
project to serve i t and another anticipated low-income housing proj eC} in the same
general area .
In anticipation of the rezoning it was understood that the School
Department would place this school in top priority on its proposed bond issue for
the Spring of 1968.
However, since the r ezoning last fall did not go throueh when
expected and has been definitely delayed until at least July 1968, the School
Department has now changed its priorities so as to accommodate those projects which
are already' definitely approved, under cons truction or where plans for early
�3
development are actually pro6Tessine satisfactorily.
Department's position is justified and understandable.
This chanee in the School
However, as far as this'
particular school is concerned, it does not bring the Browntown site any nearer
to fruition.
It is also likely that plans for improved sewer facilities for
this area will not have a~ high priority as would have been the case, if the
proposed zoning had already been approved.
(b)
A similar situation also applies to the Butler Street YMCA site
on Hollywood Road in the same general area and which is equally dependent on
the proposed Elementary School discussed above and improved sewer faciliti es.
(c)
The Sewell Road project is a typical example of an excellently
planned and designed Turnkey project for Public Housing which was well located
and adequately isolated and screened, but which went "by the board" as a result
of pressure of public opinion from the neighborhood.
(d)
Another instance is the requested rezoning for a proposed 221 d
(3)
project on an excellent site on Wilson Mill Road,. immediately across from a
developed City park, and where other adequate community fac~lities exist.
It
received an adverse recommendation from the Planning Board, supported by a
recommendation of the Planning staff, because of anticipated objection from
residents of the neighborhood.
(e)
One well known out of town developer, highly recommended by FHA,
after having to give up three proposed developments in DeKalb County because of
DeKalb's lapse of its Workable Program, subsequently filed applications with FHA
for three substantial projects -in Atlanta under the 221 d (3) program.
applications were later withdrawn.
All three
It is understood that two were withdrawn because
of neighborhood resentment, which he experienced early, and anticipated rezoning
difficulties.
The third proposed project, for which the site was already zo~ed
appropriately, was given up primarily because of high land costs and partially
_because of anti cipated neighborhood resentment, plus economic problems encountered
in trying to design and develop a creditable proj e ct which would overcome the other
difficulties.
The foregoing are typical illustrations why previous us ed and long established
procedure is not working adequately for the Low-income Housing Program.
The success of this program is as important to the future well being of
Atlanta as the School, Sewer, Traffic, or Parks programs and should be approached
with the same considerate deliberation and coordinated planning as has been found
necess ary and which is currently being pursued in other City programs.
�4
After careful consideration of the foregoing factors and based on experience
with low- income housinp, i n Atlanta f or s everal years, i t appear3 that some new
pr ocedures are practical and would be helpful.
However, dilligent effort will
continue t o be made under the current procedure, until it is changed.
Recommend that the followinc additional procedures be adopted as soon as
pos sible:
1.
Written recommendation from the Mayor to the local Director of F1iA that
t he maximum limits for FHA mortgage insurance under the 221 d (2) program in the
Atlanta area be increased from the current $12,500 to $15,000; to compensate for
.increased cost of land and construction since the present ceiling was established
several years ago.
(This should provide additional flexibility and incentive to builders to
construct and market single family sales housing in Atlanta under the 221 d (2)
program.
Acti vi t:r in this field has been quite dormant since the Low-income
Housine Program started.
It is one of the most needed categories, for which there
is a strong demand and adequate market.
Home o,mership should be encouraged when-
ever possible, as it is one of the most stabilizing factors for low and moderate
income families).
2.
To supplement the above, adopt an additional Single Family Dwelling Zoning
District in Atlanta, to permit erection of dwellings havine a minimum of 720 square
feet floor area, on minimum size lots of S,000 square feet and with minimum f rontgage
of
so•.
Similar proposals have been previously made to the Administrative Assistant
and to the Director of Planningw
(This would permit an increase of
50%in
house f or which the currently applicable
R-5
current density of the 221 vari ety
zoning district requires
·7, 500
square
feet of lot area, 810 square feet minimum floor area and a minimum frontgage of 60 1 •
This additional zoning• district would provide ample land area for houses in this
category and i n the price range of the 221 d (2) program).
J.
Request HUD to modify its current FHA policy by per mitting mort gage
i nsurance under its FHA 221 insured mortga ge proerarn in areas which do not now have
certi fied Workable Programs, when Sl.lch developments will serve to alleviate
unsatisfactory and overcrowded housing condi t i ons in areas such a s Atlant a which do
have certi fied Workable Programs in ef fect.
(Although t he purpose of the current restrictive Federal policy in those areas
was well intenti oned and expected to s erve as an _.incentive to t hose areas t o es t ablish
�5
Workable Programs, the actual r esul ts have boomer anged by excluding cons truction
under this type financi ng fr om nei ghbor ing areas (which inci dentally are apparently
desirous of having it excluded) and thereby placing incr eased low-income housing
burdens on comrrrunities , such as Atlanta, which do have Workable ProGrams).
4.
Modi fy the current Zonin g Ordinance to permit structural changes in
non-conforming residential dwellings in other zoning districts, when ne ce::,sary in
order to meet requi r ements of the Housing Code.
'lj·,
(This is no't permi tted now and serves to perpetuate unsatis f actory and substandard hous ing conditions in many areas of the City, which :i.n the past have
been premat urely zoned for uses other than residential and which will probably
continue to be so used f or the foreseeable future.
In many of these areas improvement
i s stagnating because of the f act that existing residential buildings cannot be
s tructurally altered and if demolished another can not be built in its place , plus
the past difficul y of obtaining financing in these areas for housing improvements,
due partially to the zoning restrictions, and of the problem of private enterprise
in assembling tracts in thes~ areas of sufficient size and price to justify substantial development).
5.
As a companion measure to the above, eliminate from the Housing Code
Enforcement Map and Policy and Procedur e Guide all so called
11
Clearance - Code
Enforcement 11 Area classification and place all of these areas in top priority for
strict Housing Code Enf'orcement on a house-by-house basis, except where formal
application has been submitted for a Federal assisted project for th e area or other
planned development is eminent.( Although some modification was made during 1967 in Housing Code Enforcement
policy, t he current policy in these areas of which there are many in the City, for
pract ical purposes is still essentially one of containment, in that Code .Enforcement in t hese areas consists of:
(a)
Pl a card where warranted and seek demolition
(b)
Cor r ect hazzards
(c)
Reduce overcrowding
(d )
Vacate unfit units
(e)
Clean up premises
.
Under existing policy, there is _no specif ic requir ement or priori ty i n t hese areas ,
which contai n much of the wors t housing i n t he City, for bri neing all dwelling units
into strict compliance with the Housine Code .)
�6
(Furthermore, the theory of clearing such areas throueh Housing Code Enforcement is a fallacy and is a long drawn out, impracticable as well as unprofitable
procedure, in that the Housing Code is not, and never was intended to be, a punitive
or clearance weapon, but rather a tool to encourage, improvement and with which to
maintain good standard housing conditions throughout the entire City.
.
The so called
\
"Clearance-Code Enforcement" areas are extremely difficult to operate in and have
been generally neglected in interest of obtaining more compliances in less difficult
areas where violations are less serious and compliance is much easier to obtain.
Early improvement of substandard conditions in existing housing in these worst areas
would materially relieve the long range burden on the Housing Resources Committee
of providing adequate new standard units for many low-income families, for which the
existing housing in many instances in these areas could be made adequate.)
(The financial burden or even hardship, on the owners ' of these properties for
bringing them in ' to compliance with the Hou~ing Code would be no greater than it
is now and has been in other areas of the City, where the Code is being strictly
enforced on a house-by-house basis.)
6. Modify existing local building codes to permit erection of prefab
residential construction, to incluae preassembled plumbing, electrical, and heat
facilities, when it has been-determined that the materials and workmanship are
satisfactory and can be inspected during assembly at the factory.
(The application of assembly line procedures and techniques to mass production
of low-income housing is as essential today as the assembly line procedure has been
-
to the automobile, major elect.;rical appliances, prefabricated kitchen cabinets and
other similar products, if we are going to meet the current day.' s needs in low-income
housing.)
7. Encourage prompt formation of a Non-profit Housing Development Corporation,
I
having a city-wide scope of operation, to assist development of low-income housing.
Such a corporation could provide much needed seed money on a loan basis to local
neighborhood non-profi t sponsors; bank land f or future low-income housing projects;
and lend technical and other assistance in promotion of low-income housing
developments.
(The formation of such a corporation ·i s well under way through the efforts
of the Finance and Non-profit Funds Panel of the Housins Resources Committee .
Thia corporation ia much needed in Atlanta now.
A revolvins fund in the nei ghborhood
�7
of 1-1½ million dollars could probably be procured through loans of perhaps ten
year durat ion from Private Enterpris e at low interest rates, with principal re-'
payable as available.
This money would serve to finance activities of the
Corporation on a r evolvi ng basis, in a manner similar to procedure which is being
success.fully used in Hartford, Connecticut and several other cities.)
8.
And almost l ast but not least, recorrrrnend that suitable sites be carefully
selected j ointly by the Housing Resources Committee and the Planning Department,
in all f our geographical quadrants of the City (not necessarily· equal dist ribution)
sufficient in number and size to bring the current Low-income Housing Program up
to 20,000 units; that each of these sites be earmarked for Public Housing under
t he Turnkey or conventional program, housing under the FHA 221 insured mortgage
program or conventionally financed similar priced construction; and that special
effort be made to rezone these sites simultaneously in one package; with the help
of wide-spread, well placed and care.fully selected public support and on the
conditi on that low-income housing will eventually be constructed on these sites
when adequate community facilities will be available.
The plan should include
several areas f or a reasonable number of single family sales houses.
( It is believed t hat this approach can be successful, if careful a t t ention is
given to selecting sites which will serve the intended purpose, but which are most
l i kely to be the least controversial (omitting those which are obviously likely to
arouse strong community resentment).
This procedure has recent ly been r esorted to
in New Orleans f or Public Housing , after s i te s electi on by private enterprise f ailed.
This would spread the locations- and not concentrate the bulk of such housing on two
or three sites which are likely to be particularly controversial, and on which it
would not be wise to concentrate l arge numbers of low-income f amilies , even {f
appropriate zoning could be obtained.)
(There are suff ic1ent sites in the former category.
Many of these sites , if
appropriat ely developed, would excell ently serve the needs of low-income .famil ies
and at the same time would 'materially improve the areas involved.
In sever al
instances t hese are areas in which l ow-income famil~es already r eside and will
probably continue t o do so for a l ong time , but i n which current densities can be
increased and the environment improved .)
(Still, other areas to be consi dered should be those located where nice well
planned low-income housing devel opments would improve the area, shoul d pr omote a
mininrum of cri ticism from the res idents of the communit y and l ocat ions that are
not l ikely to be developed in the near future for bet ter or higher
use .
�8
In some instances however , this will require modification of current policies and
thinking of some planners as to zoning classifications for such locations, by
permitting a mixture of uses in the general areas involved rather than continuation
of all single family Residential or all Industrial or Cornmerciai as the case may be.)
9. When the proposed reZPning of suggested sites is accomplished, then
concentrate on coordination of all Departments and Agencies involved in planning
for the proposed developments to provide necessary Community facilities ~imultaneously
with scheduled development of the low-income housing.
This is possible and offers
the best opportunity for getting what is needed in the nature of Community Facilities
at the time it is needed to serve the proposed developments.
Two good examples of
where such coordination efforts have recently worked successfully are:
(a)
The arrangements made for extension of Cleveland Avenue to serve the
proposed Golfview development project; and
(b)
The compromise recently worked out satisfactorily between the
developers and the Water Pollution Control Division for sewer service at an
extremely early date for the proposed Bankhead Highway Turnkey project.
10.
In order to speed up development on land in Urban Renewal projects sold to
developers, recommend that the period allowed between award on bids and beginning of
actual construction be reduced from the current permissive time of one year. · It
appears that 6-9 months should be ample.
(Examples of disturbing delay are the Ebenezer Baptist Church project and, to
a somewhat lesser degree, the Rockdale project; whereas planning for the Friendship
Baptist Church pr0ject is much further along, which illustrates that others could do
likewise.)
All of the above explained procedures are believed to be feasible and if adopted
should insure completion of the established goals in the Low-income Housing Program
within the time alloted and with a minimum of difficulty and disagreement between
I
those involved in accomplishing the Program.

Dear Malcolm:
John Cone, who is our Public Service Director, has offered
to produce television spots for all three stations in town
which would enco urage private firms - and especially churches to venture into sponsorhip of non-profit housing projects.
Could you be good enough to give us - not a great wealth
of rules and regulations - but a capsule page or so of what
you think are the most important points to encourage such
participation. We'll take it from there with visuals, etc.
J've dabbled on this far too long, so I hope you'll move
swifter than I have. Thanks so much.
Cordially,

Hr. Malcolm D. Jones, Housing Coordinator
I~ . Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee, pr esi ded. He
opened the meeting by explaining that at some point in the past the Corr~ittee
had come to the conclusion that it shoul d not back specific areas on natt ers
of rezonin~ , but of course would continue to work in support of the overtll
program; that it appeared the Committee could be more effe ctive t his way.
Hr. Jones asked Mr . Litchfield to explain the purpose of his pr esentati n .
Mr . Litchi'ield explained that in the past HUD had come up agair.s t s ituations
where developers have come into Atlanta and put much work and effort on a project
only to be turned down at the last minute by zoning requirements . He s aid the
Committoe 1 s endorsement that this l and is a good site for a Turnkey . rojcct. is
needed so that the paper work can be a ccomplished and the ·actual construe ,.,i on can
be s t art ed a s soon as the funds are available; that Turnkey ~un.::ls :,::-.... i ::- --:en until
July l, _1968 ( except f or Turnkey 3).
·
Er . Litchfield stated that he was proposing ·a Turnkey project cons5.st:.nr, of
a 16.3 acre tract in Northeast Atlanta off Dekalb Avenue at Hampton Ter race and
Southerland Terrace on which to build approximately 200 units . Facil ities needed
for Public Housing are available. A densi ty of twelve units per acre is contemplated and feasible beca.use of hieh land cost. He believes this would be the best
way to use this land. He stat ed that the City of Atlanta Housing Authori ty has
endorsed this site for a Turnkey project and that Mr. Shuttleworth of the Plarming
.Department feels that it would receive favorable recommendation from that Department . He further stated that Mr . Flanigen, HUD, and NAACP, were in favor of this
proposal .

�FACT SHEET ON THOMASVILLE URBAN REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT
The Thomasville Urban Redevelopment Area , loc ated four miles southeast
of downtown Atlanta, was desi.gnat ed by the Board of Aldermen on August 19, 1957
as a slum and the site for a predominately residential development.
This area covers 277 acres of land and originally contained 356
residential structures, 67% of which were substandard, that housed 402 families.
The area was marked by unpaved streets, dilapidated structures, lack of
park and playground facilities, overcrowded school, and inadequate utilities.
Since entering a Loan and Grant Contract with the Federa l Government on
July 10, 1959, the Atlanta Housing Authority has completed acquisition of 453
parcels of land, relocated 283 families, 26 individuals, and 19 businesses, and
demolished 302 structures.
.
The Authority has compl eted contracts for roads, sidewalks, and sewers •
In addition,the Authority has sold 314 single-family lots, on which 222
dwelling units have been complet ed , and construction started on 92 units, 69 lots
r ema in to be sold.
350 public housing units are pr oposed north of McDonough Road .
Bids
for the construction of these units will be let on March 1, 1968, with an
estimated completion date of construction in September, 1970.
The urban renewal plan also propos es six church site s and a 10-acre
commercial tract.
The Thoma sville Urban Renewal Area is fast becoming
3
madel residential
neighbor hood, with paved streets, sidewa l ks , fine home~ , parks und er development,
new el ement ary schools
.o2oe.i, and provision for
chur ches and a shopping center.
The Federa l Government has recently announc ed that approximately 95
acres of land will be given to the City to provid e additi.onal housing for f amil i es
of low and mode r ate income.

Mr. Collier B. Gladin

Atlanta, Gergia
Dear Collier:
The progress with the package plan has been good and I congratulate
you, Johnny and your staff on the work.
I would like to point out that one of the areas selected is, in my
opinion, so very controversial that it will endanger the entire
concept . This i s the ball park site . It seems to me that no public
housmng per se should be included in this area - that it should be
a mix of commercial, some 221 D-3 and conventionally financed. The
placement of the 221 D-3 should be carefully arranged so that they
will be buffered from the surrounding residential area.
As you know there has been a strong effort to maintain the residential
patterns north of Ponce de Leon · and this proposal will fly in the
face of the most strenuous opposition.
Please give this your consideration.
Sincerely ,
_Cecil A. Alexander

FACT SHEET ON THE 'IRAVELERS INVESTMENT PARTICIPATION IN
THCMASVILLE URBAN RENE.WAL PROJECT
The Travelers, Hartford, Conn., through its mortgage loan office in Atlanta,
io currently making ~0rtgage loans on single family homes in the Thomasville
Urban Renewal Project in Atlanta.
To
date, these loans total nearly a half million dollars.
It is expected that
the company's total investment on this first phase of its commitment in Atlanta
will reach $1 million, an amount which could eventually double.
This urban development mortgage loan participation in Atlanta is one of the
commitments which have oeen made to date by The Travelers as its part in the
$1 billion mortgage loan program announced last year by the life insurance
industry.
This program is designed to provide financing for developers and
others working in blighted core city areas of _l _a rge urban centers throughout
the United States.
The homes in Thomasville, most in the $12,000 range, are being constructed by
the Knox Home Corp. of Thomeon, Ga., and the Fulton County Division of the
National Homes Construction Co.
They are both wholly owned suboidiarion of
National Homes Corp. of Lafayette, Ind., one of several developers currently
active in this 227-acre central city project.
The Travelers thus far has made F.H.A. insured loans on nearly 40 homes, and
expects to provide loans on a total of about 70 homes in this first phase.
If
arrangements satisfactory to F.H.A., National Homes and The Travelers can be
wor ked out, f inancing for an· additional. 70 homes is possible.

H0USillG RESOURCES EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AND
LOA-INCOME H0USmG C00RDL~ATI0N GROUP MEETING
Februnry l, 1968
The regular monthly meeting of the Housing Resources Committee Executive
Group and the key individuals involved in low-income housing, was held at 10:00
a.m. this date, in Committee Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall.
Fifteen (1.5) members of the H)Using Resources Executive Group; Nine (9)
key individuals concerned with Low-income Housing; five (5) other invited
guests; and members of the Press attended the meeting . Lists of those invited,
with attendance indicated, is attached to the file copy of these minutes.
1
Chairman Alexander presided.
Mr. Alexander opened the meeting OIJ stating that this was the second
meeting of the Low-income Housing Coordination Group. He expressed regret that
the School Department was not included in the first meeting on January 2, 1968 •

Each guest introduced himself by giving his name and organization he
represented.
Mr • .Alexander asked Mr . Jones to expl ain the Summary of the Low-i ncome
Housing Repor t , dated J anuary 15, 1968 , copies of whi ch were distri buted t o
all in at tendance .
Mr. Jones expl ained t he Summary. He stat ed that thi s report showed the
s t atus of a 2-year goal of a 5- year progr am that Mayor Allen' s office had
established. He pointed out that t his was the firs t time this report showed
a comparison with the previous report. He s t ated t hat the "In Planning" totals
were actual pr oj ects that were being worked on . He said that applications may
not be made to HUD for commitments on some of these projects . He said that
in addition, 4,481 units in various project s ar e in discussion s t age . He
pointed out that unfortunately 8,266 unit s which had been proposed did not
ma t erialize and speci f ically mentioned the Sewell Road proj ect as an exampl e .
He s t ated t hat 10,157 units have been rehabilitat ed through the Hous i ng Code
Division, plus 247 unit s by t he Housing Authorit y in the 1vest End u. R. Proj ect
and 30 units voluntarily by privat e enter prise . He point ed out that this report
deals only wit h Low-inc0me Housing in Atlanta. The second page of t his Swnmary
is a compilati0n of Public Housing in Atlant a . The thir d page consists of notes
that have a direct bearing on t he Low-income Housing Program. He also mentioned
that during the period of existence of this Commit tee {Nov.15 1 66 to present)
1,312 new low-income units were construct ed; that according to reports from the
Building Department for end of 1967 that under the Housing Code Enforcement
Progrrun 1,272 units were demolished; that it can be assumed that most of the
units demolished were low-income housing.
�I'

Mr. Alexander asked that copies of the Summary report be distributed to
those invited but who did not come and stated that developers should be included
in next meeting~
Mr. Alexander said there wero two primary problems to discuss: (1) acquisition of land that is approved by all parties concerned that could be zoned
and community facilities be provided and; (2) the use and ability to use lowincome housing that could be built that does not me et the Building Codes but
which would be every bit as good as tho Housing Code calls for.
Mr. Alexander asked Dr. Letson about the possibility of having developers
build schools f or l ease to the School Department.
Mr. Earl Landers said he had nothing definit e to report, but Tom Choyce
had advis ed him that he had been in contact with Pete Lattimer, and had maile d
a lotter to Mr. Lant~ers Dn January 31, 1968; that apparently the City Attorney
is working on tho possibility of having schools built f or lease to the School
Department,
Mr. Archer Smith said tha t " governmental" bodies cannot commit thems elves
to l ong-term l easing beyond their term of office (which is usually one year).
He stated that City schools are considered " governmental"; that contractors
could dedi cate land to City; that a l ease that would be terminable would be
impossible to get . Ho said the onl y way to acquire schools by leasing would
be by l egislation to change the code section of schools being considered
"governmental".
Dr, Lets on said that schools built by private developers and l eased to the
School Board would probably be more expensive than construction by the City
through General Obligation B~nds, However, failure 10 years ago to provide
adequate s chool facilities for today's population means the Board must now
build schools on more expensive property at hiGher interest and construction
costs. He placect emphasis on the nee d for Kindergartens to be built in or
near housing developments.
Dr. Letson said that pro cedures for getting capital outlay funds arc
tied to the calm, quie t pas t many years ago and are not adequate for today 's
needs.
Mr. Alexander asked where do these funds come from that would be used to
pay rental on leased schools?
Dr. Lotson said the funds would have to become an annual charge in terms
of the budget; that funds arc limited to property tax; that wc need some
adcitional source of revenue.
Dr. Harrison asked what de~rce of independence did schools have on
expenditures?
Dr. Letson said no independence in bonds.
�3
Dr. Harris on asked what the gov0rnin~ r esponsibility was ?
Dr . Letson sai d the same law a s Board of Aldermen.
Mr. Archer Smith gave three ways to solve the pr oblem of l easing s chools:
(a) go t o tho courts and l ook into f ormer cas es of this nature and get the
courts t o s ee that things have changed and that s chool ::; mus t l eas e on a l ong
t erm (20-30 y ear) bas is; (b) that fi nancing i s oven more s trenuous; we should
arrange for ext ending the l ease provis i on beyond the term of the Council;
(c) easi est way t o solve the pr oblem i s pr obably t o tell the private c.e velopcr
we will zone the lanG if you will dedi cat e tho land to the City.
Mr . Alexander sai d we al so want t o kn:,w whe t her a devel oper can be
authoriz ed t o a ctually build a s chool?
Dr. Lot : :; on sai d thi s tics up wi t h a pr oposal that we se cure l egi s l ation
authori zing a l ocal Sch:,:Jl Building Auth')rity.. Such an Authority by l egi sl ation
should be 5 iven certain rights c:md privilege s to overcome these probl ems .
Mr . Flani gen sai d that the Zoning Committee a t present time does no t trade
f or zoni ng.•
Mr . Alexande r so i d t hat one sugges ti on was made t hat thi s could be handled
if s omeone under wrot e the City ' s s chools by insuring the l ease . Another might
be for the Feder al e ove r nment to get in the a ct.
& . Persells s tat ed t hat funds for low r ental Public Hous ing in Urban
Renewal areas may not be used for any school cons truction whats oever. I t was
brought out that f or HEW t o ass i s t on r ent al of s chools f or low r ent Public
Housing proj ects would requi r e that tho l and on which such s chool s might be
constructed woul d have to be a ctuall y deemed surplus . Al so that FeJoral
pr ojections of t ho Labor Depnr t ment have included funds for r entals .
Mr . Thigpen sai d ho doesn 1 t know of any program FHA has which could assist
in this fi eld; that HUD may have somethi ng.
Mr. Alexander asked if FHA ho.cl rel axe cl on certain commercial f a cili tics in
housing developments?
Mr . Jim Parhrun oaid EOA was thinking about Day Care and Head Start paying
for r ent for facilities; that those programs arc here to stay to some degree.
Dr. Lets on statoJ that one of Atlanta's tremendous advantages io a
relatively l ow property t ax . It was also mentioned that General Obligation
Bonds arc financ ed by property ad vnlorem tax .
This was confirmed by Mr.
Landers.
Mr. Alexanuer emphasized .the importance of timing of community f acilities
and housing developments ( s o that community facilities would be developed
simultaneously with construction of houdng ).
�4
Mr. Alexander asked if any faciliti es ar c being l eas ed at present time?
Dr. Letson said a Catholic Sch0ol was l oas ed on nn annual r ontcl bns i s.
Dr. m:irrison des cribed a system for building l ::iw-income housing being
sponsored by Jones -Laughlin a t an alledged cos t of $8.SO a square f oot, which
ho said w':luld not conform to local building codes . This method was one in
which apartment units would be inserted - shoe box fashion - into a steel frame.
Bathrooms ancl kitchens would be in line ancl served through a central shaft to
save cost::; of plumbin6 •
Mr. Al exanJer mentione d the pr opos ed t e chnique by National Homes to bui ld
houses in Thomnoville that wci'e panelized a...-id er e cted on site.
Yu-. Alexander sai d that national codes arc more flexible than local codes .
Hr . Al exander t old about the t eam fr om Savannah which was to make a
pres entation t o the Construction ancl DcsiGn Panel on a new propos ed proccso
of construction, but the presentation haJ to be postponed because of sickness.
Dr. Harri oon r oad his r eport, whi ch in es s ence sai d thnt the Conotruction
and Design Panel f eel s thot it will bo necessary t o find some s ource of funding ,
outs i de of city funcls, and that codes r evi s i on i s essential to any r eal advances
in low-cost housing.
Mr. Alexander commented on Interfaith Inc., which has oi ~ht or nine
incorporators. They ar e wi de spread a cross the City. He expressed high hopes
for this group.
Mr . Alcxarn.!cr asked Mr . Collier Gladin f or a rep0rt on tho Land Us e Plan .
Mr. Gladin said that the Planning Department has been working with several
different 3roups; tha t the proposed Land Use Pl an has boon presented to Aldermen
on individual baGis, on commi ttee basis, ::md through the Pl an11in3 Board, and it
will be brought back to them posoibly February S t o take some type of nction on.
This Plan propos es the projccti 0ns that we have translated from the Atl2.nta
Metropolitan Regional Plan for tho gr~wth which io anticipa t ed within tho next
15 years. It is a plan that distributes thi s gr owth. He said they mus t get
a statement of pol icy from tho Board of Aldermen to support thi s basic euiclo
lino approach. Tho Planner::; hnve also :ilet with nei ghborhood groups . Thoy-sroworking
with the Nmwpnpers. A section ( in color) JWill be in the At lanta JournalConstitution on Fr,bruary 18, to include 2 page::;, of tho plans. There will be
approximately½ million distribution of this paper~
Mr. Howland, CACUR, sai d the Plan was presented on Janug.ry ?4 to his group
which unani.r.lounlysupports tho plan and that they arc pushing it.
Mr. Hills said the Finance Sub-Committee has been working to es tablish tho
Housing Development Corporation sponsored by tho business community. They have
boon unable to get a firm commitment fr om a group which is considering furniohing
the s eed money funds. Bnscd on present prospects, the Housing Development Corporation should be operational within 90 days,

Mr. Sommerville snid ho docs not think we can get by through evas ion
techniques aml that we should try to use m.tiom.l codes for experimental work.
Mr. Thigpen statod that tho Low-income Housing Progrrun's pipe line in the
Atlanta Metropolitnn area is filled which includes FHA 221 d (3) projects;
11 proj ects of 1,352 units arc fully occupied; 11 more projects of 916 units

Mr. Alexander commented on the possibility of r educinc the prices on tho
remaining 221 vacant rough lots in Thomasville. Thero was no response.

NOTES
A.
8,266 units proposed did not materialize, of which 7,166 were shown in the previous report of Hov. 15,
current report, as Lost.
1 67 and 1,100 additional unit s are listed i n
(The majority of these losses were due to disapprovals of sites and proposed r ezoning.)
B.
Proposed locations for low-cost housing are being coordinated with the Plannine Dept., for adequacy of Community Facil ities, existing or proposed.
Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for a dequacy of school facilities.
c.
A team from Savannah composed of lfr. Leon J. Meyer, Architect, A.I.A. and Mr. John O. McNamara, Jr., Consulting
presentation in Atlanta of a "patent. applied for" low-cost housing method of construction with flexible design,
quickly on site, employing mostly untrained labor and at a savings of 10%-15% under conventional construction.

D.
The Travelers Insurance Company has agreed to finance 70 or more new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville, Urban Renewal Proj e ct area under
the FHA 221 d {2) insured mortgage program.
E.
In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites propos ed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that
the Low-income Housing Program will have to l ean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial portion of the r equirements on small
scattered sites. Thus far, 597 single family sales houses and 2,854 rental units in duplexes and relatively small apartment developments, in this
category and mostly under conventional financing, have been and are being developed.
F.
No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even eff iciency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50.00 per month, although the
London Towne Houses, a 221 d (3) co-op development now under construction, is pushing this close with its one bedroom unit selling f or $59. 00 per month.
The City' s greatest need is in the $30.00 - $50. 00 per month rental-purchase range.
G.
Attorney Blacla-,ell in Decatur has proposed a concrete 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,000 sq. ft. hous e which he claims can sell for $6,000, plus land cos t s, incl.
heating and air conditioning equipment.
H.
National Homes Corp . of Lafayette, Ind. placed on the market Feb. 1, 1967, a 800 - 900 S.F. (O.S. dimensions ) 3 bedroom, prefabricated, preassembled
panel, single family house plus a 96 s.F. (I . S. dimensions ) storage building manufactured by Arrow Metal Products Corp. , to sell under FHA 221 d ( 2).
Price includes plumbing, electrical, heating units, stove & refrigerator. House can be compl etely assembled -in 85 man hours ; 72 of these (with conventional plumbing ) are being ere cted (pre-sold) in the Thomasville Urban Renewal Area. Approx. 800 sq. ft. house i s priced a t $11,200; 900 sq. f t.
house is priced at $11,600. Adrian Homes Corp. has proposed a prefab to retail for about $7,SOO plus l an.d, f oundation, closing and possible tapping
f ees . Other prefab distributors and conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but are not producing single frunily houses in
Atlanta to sell in t he $10,000-~il2,500 range for which there is a strong demand and market in Atlanta . Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the City Limits. Economics for this price range sal es housing require l and which will not cost the developer
more than $1500.00 per unit.
I.
Saul Gray is one of five partners in a Corporation which o,ms 280 new units off Bankhead at Elbridee St. , which he wants to sell, + a potential
development on the site for several hundred additional units. Area is already zoned A-1.
J.
Ralph L. Dickey of Atlanta has proposed a non-profit revolving f und enterprise to acquire subs t andard housing, renovate it and resell , primarily
throuGh private enterprise. CACUR recently f ormed a non-prof it corporation to rehabilitate existing units under 221 (h). Morr is Bro1-m College
is another such sponsor. North Hest Community Forum has also filed applications for 4 projects under 221 ( h ) .

SPECIAL MEETING, HOUSING RESOURCES COMMITTEE
January 2, 1968
Special meeting sponsored by the Housi~ Resources Committee of key
individuals involved in low-income housing, (in accordance with Item 1 of
Chairman Alexander's proposals at the Annual Housing Resources Committee
Meeting of December 14, 1967) was held at 11:00 a.rn. this date, in Committee
Room 2, Second Floor, City Hall.
The following invited participants attended the meeting:
Mr. Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman
Alderman John M. Flanigen, Chairman, Zoning Committee
Mr. Collier B. Gladin, Director of Planning
Mr. Howard Op)enshaw, Director of Redevelopment, Housing Authority,
representing Mr. Lester A. Persells
Mr. Gilbert Boggs, Direc~or of Public Housing, Housing Authority,
representing Mr. Edwin L. Sterne
Mr. Ralph Johnson, Chief Underwriter, FHA, representing Mr. John
A. Thigpen
Mr. Robert L. Sommerville, Olairman, CACUR
Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr., Director of Governmental Liaison
Alderman Rodney M. Cook, Chairman, Planning and Development Committee,
Mr. Jim Crawford, Chairman, Atlanta-.F 'ulton County Joint Planning Board, and
Dr. Vivian Henderson, Acting Chairman, Land Acquisition Panel, Housing
Resources Committee, did not attend.
Additional guests included Mr. William S. Howland, Executive Director,
Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal, Mr. Al Roland,- Chief Appraiser,
FHA, and several members of the press.
Chairman Alexander presided.
Mr. Alexander opened the meeting by explaining its general purpose i.e.
to provide an opportunity for key individuals involved with low-income housing
in the City to get together, compare notes, and exchange ideas with view to
accomplishing more effective coordination.
He advised that over all prospects are good for finalizing establishment
of a City of Atlanta non-profit Housing Development Corporation, being sponsored
by Mr. Lee Burge's committee, which, am0ng other things, might:
�2
(1)
Provide seed money to local neighborhood non-profit
organizations.
(2)
Bank land for future low-income housing developments.
(3)
Assist in sustaining neighborhoods; and
(4) Although officially limited to housing activities within
the City limits, we hope eventually to involve the metropolitan area.
Mr. Alexander then told about a non-profit organization that had
recently formed, called Interfaith Inc., consisting of Catholic, Episcopal,
Presbyterian and Unitarian churches, in which John Steinichen is the moving
force. He urged that this group be given full cooperation by all concerned
with low-income housing.
Mr. Alexander then referred to the ten point s he had specifically
mentioned at the December 14, Annual Meeting of the Housing Resources
c.ommittee (included in the minutes) and announced that the Housing Resources
Committee is interested in ~etting housing in all sections of the City. He
then proceeded to raise a variety of points for discussion and called upon
various participants for their views and comments on specific items.
The discussion which followed was healthy and tended to pinpoint sane
of the under-lying features which contribute to the difficulty encountered
in meeting the City's goals for low-income housing, These all seemed to
stem from the following factors, which evolved as the essence of the meeting:
(a)
Lack of any one body or individual empcn,ered to make top level
policy decisions essential to the program and to see that they
are carried out effectively, (The structural organization of
the City, in this as in other fields, appears to be the primary
cause. )
(b)
Breakdown in communications and inadequate coordination of
efforts of various Departments and Agencies involved in the
program for carrying out a general plan to meet a specific
time schedule ,
(c)
The necessity for establishment of definite time schedules
for matt ers essential to the low-income housing program~ For
example: establishment of supporting community facilities;
.wditional proposed Urban Renewal Projects; initiation of
devel,opment of some units in areas already known to require
l~i:QCOme housing, such as in Vine City and the Model Qi.ties
area, even though . complete requirements and all specific
locati~ .may not yet be determined.
�3,
Mr. Gladin was called upon to comment on the Model Cities Project. He
discussed how his Department is trying to tie in housing requirements for
five years with the Bedford-Pine and Model Cities areas; that exact housing
r equirements for the Model Cities area are not yet known; that planning funds
in the amount of $172,000 have been made available, whereas $500,000 was
requested; that new housing in the Model Cities area is several years off,
with the possible exception of the proposed Stadium site; that we have always
had to wait until we could get into an area before any actual new housing
could be built; that if we could get someone interested in the Stadium site ,
four decks of parking could be built between Capitol and Frazier Streets,
South of Fulton, and development of a platform for housing above this; that
the Zoning Committee has suggested that applications for re-zoning in the
Model Cities area be held up for six months; that "we" are trying to work
out Housing Code enforcement policy in the area during the next six months;
that the planning stage covers twelve months from November 15, 1967; that a
r evised work program proposal is being considered today; that the next deadline is May 1 for determining of types of treatment needed; the time from
then to September 15 will be devoted to detailing (application due in to
HUD t hen); HUD to review by October 15; that November 1 is the deadline for
utilization of the first year's allocation of planning funds; that we should
have an indication by the first of March of what our first year's development
allocation will be; that initial development should be in areas similar to
Hill Street and Grant Park that are substantial and which are not likely to
change very much; that citizen participation is being emphasized; that
citizens shouldn't feel that a plan has already been developed before they
have a chance t o indicate their desires.
Mr . Alexander expressed hope that there will be a positive effor t mad~
in accordance with t he plans developed by t he proj e ct Executive Committ ee, to
invit e developer s to s ee the land that i s to be used for apartments, etc.
Mr. Alexander then explained the proposal of attempting to locate Turnkey
developments in s everal areas of the City and express ed hope that t he Hous i ng
Author ity woul d make a posi tive effor t toward l ocating some of t he Publ ic
Housing required.
Mr. Gladin s t at ed that his Department is t rying t o come up with a
pr oposal of perhaps t en sites f or Turnkey t o mee t our total r equirements
and on which to get allo cations for the r emainder of the five - year progr am.
He pointed out t hat we need a package proposal f or getting our total r equirements .
Mr. Boggs stated that Public Housing may be pla ced in Ur ban Renewal
projects, in t hose areas which the Hous i ng Authority owns the l and.
Mr. J ones stated t ha t i n order t o get start ed earl y on additional
housing in the Model Cities area we could a s sume that there is need for
some Public Housing in the area and that perhaps some areas could be selected
�now and started on, even if we do not yet know the total requirements; that
it can be anticipated when so many people are to be dislocated, a certain
percentage of them would need Public Housing.
Mr. Alexander stated that there is apparently little use being made
of Limited Dividend.
Mr. Johnson said FHA has several projects under construction and others
being considered. He cited Gartrell Court, College Plaz~, and Park West
1, 2, and 3, as examples. He also stated that there is a $32 million unused
allotment in the Rent Supplement program plus $10 million additional and
also. a $1 billion fund has been allocated by insurance companies for Rent
Supplement and similar loans; that s everal Rent Supplements are under
consideration in the area (one is in Marietta and four in Metropolitan
Atlanta). One Atlanta Rent Supplement project is now under construction.
Mr. Johnson said that FHA will consider row-type housing under 221 d (2)
mortgages, if separate real estate entities exist.
With respect to a suggestion that 11 Economix11 be used, Mr. Sommerville
said he feels that "Econ.omix" will not work except in certain residential
areas.
Mr. Jones stated that an example of what he thought would work is
townhouses which might be built in certain r esidential areas and cited as
an example a 12-14 a cre tract in r ear of existing single family houses
constructed on very deep lots in an R-5 area, on which he sugges t ed townhouses
might be built; and that there are many other similar areas in the City which
are not now serving any useful purpose and might be developed in this manner.
Mr. Johnson said this is what he was talking about when he mentioned
that FHA would insure row-housing under 221d (2) ; that the two main probl ems
are getting the neighbors to agree to apartments being built and getting the
land re-zoned for higher density.•
Mr. Alexander asked if FHA foreclosure properties could be obtained
and whether t he Housing Authorities could .run ads for such?
Mr. Boggs said this could be don0 , but hasn't been tried here, that the
Housing Authority is negotiating for l easing; 162 units have already been
leased and that an additional 175 units are about to be leased.
Mr. Alexander s t ated t hat some way should be set up whereby the
developers could build public facilities such as schools, outfall s ewers,
etc,., if needed to serve proposed developments, and lease them to the City
until such time as the City is in a position to acquire them.•
�s
Mr. Sommerville comtnented that School Superintendent Letson said this
is not legal in Georgia.
Mr. Alexander stated that if this a good approach, perhaps the Georgia
law should be modified; that if neighborhoods and cities could become
interested in getting schools built , inadequate schools would not be a
problem when new housing developments are built.
Mr. Alexander expressed a desire for the School Department to be
repres ented at the next meeting.
Ya-, Jones advised that Dr. Womack of the School Department gets a copy
of the Low-income Housing Inventory r eports every 60 days, but the problem
is that by the time the propos ed locations get on the report, if the
f acilities are not already provided for, it is usually too late.
Mr . Sommerville asked if Georgia school funds could not be ~sed? The
answer was not readily availableMr . Alexander s aid that Federal funds may be available for leases in
t hese s ituations, as an e couragement to builders , and have been used i n
other parts of the country; that the School Department would eventual ly buy
the s cho.o ls •
Mr . Alexander then asked wher e Vine City now stands in terms of the
ef f ort t p ge t the Vine City Urban Re newal Project under way and if funds
are avai lable ?
Mr. Gladin said t hey have or ganized a communi ty group r ecogniz ed by
the City. A r epor t i s being made by the City along with the group ; t hat
an Ur ban Renewal Project is required to all eviat e problems in the Vine Ci t y
area; t hat the s chool whi ch is under development there would give the City
the l argest capital improvement credit to be used in meeting the City's
one-third share of' t he cost of an Ur ban Renewal Pr oject; t .h at we have only
about three years left in whi ch to take credi t f or thi s f acilit y,
Mr. Alexander expres sed t he opi nion that t he City needs a t ime-table
to get rid of the worst areas throughout t he City.
Mr. Gladin admitted that the Nash-Bans Project is dragging; t hat SO%
of his staff will soon go to the Model Cities Project; that the Planning
and Development Committee should come back and ask the citizens what they
want, or tell them that they should be willing to go along with an Urban
Renewal plan to be developed by the Ci:t,y.
Mr. Alexander then asked if this did not essentially resolve itself
to responsibility of Mr-t Cook's Committee? Mr~ Gladin agreed that it did.
�6
-
Mr. Flanigen then asked why is there so much delay on all Urban
Renewal Projects?
Mr~ Gladin explained that delay in the Vine City area was caused by
an attempt to involve people in the community; that we are waiting for them
to docide what they want.
Mr~ Alexander again emphasized the necessity for deadlines in planning
and stated that he felt the City should move on its principal proposed
projects in accordance with a time schedule; that it is well to involve
people in the area, but they should be given a time limit for coming up
with their proposals and if they did not meet that schedule, the City should
go ahead and develop -plans and submit its own plan for the Urban Renewal
Project; that if we are to eliminate slums, at some point the City must
move into its worst areas,
Mr. Boggs said authorizations by City government for Public Housing
b another problem; and that federal funds can now only be used in an areaif there is housing and employment for the poor.
Mr, Oppenshaw said that Federal funds are limited and that timing of
submittal of projocJ;_ npplic~tion8 is all.inPortn.nt; that every Urbe.n RenewaJ.
Project in Atlanta has been amended and that takes additional time. He
then quoted figures as to the number of Public Housing units under construction and planned for Urban Renewal Projects,
Mr. Johnson said that the Rockdale project now has an FHA commitment
for 600 units; that FHA has reviewed the ( Central) Methodist Church plan md
is ready to approve it; that the Ebenezer Church program is dragging; that
according to the Housing Resources Committee Annual Report, the FHA 221
program is the furtherest advanced in meeting the City 's goals. Mr, Jones
confirmed this.
The question was raised about the slowness in getting housing started
on some of the Renewal land sites. Mr. Oppenshaw said he had recently written
to Mr. Rosen about this with respect to t he Rockdale Project. Mr. Alexander
agreed to write a letter to Mr. Robinson about the Ebenezer Church project
and also Mr. Rosen.
Mr. Alexander proposed a Workshop t;, which developers and involved
groups would be invited, to explain how we suggest developing this program,
what we have available, etc. and that key Department Heads should also be
invited. Ha asked for opinions as to this idea. Mr. Jones responded that
he thought this might be very benificial.
�7
In summary, the necessityfor over-all decision making; timing; and
authority and res ponsibility for following through to get things done was
the essence of the meeting.
The meeting adjourned nt 12:10 p.m.
Respe ctively submitted,

b.' tl:e m:iyM Lo e.·prdi :e his low-cost ho usi ng
plans.
The HJlC observed that almost all urban
renewal land on which low-cost housing might
be built already has been committed. Most
other sites zoned for rnull.i-family use already are be ing used fo r that pu rpose or are
prohibitively expensive .
And yet there is reasonably priced vacant
land in the city. It 1s zoned for other purposes, howeve r.
This i.ndicrtt.es ," said HRC's annu al report, "that the bulk of remaining land needed
for the program will have lo depend on rezoning of appropriate tracts for this purpose."

And there's the nib. Aldermen have been
notably reluctant to rezone for housing for the
poor-unless the site were in someone else's
ward.
In its repor t, the Housing Resources Commi ttee out! ined a broad-spectrum attack on
sl ums, utilizing "turnkey," 22l and other privately developed projects; vigorous rehabilitation programs, leasing of privately owned
bu tld ings by the Atlanta Housing Authority,
add itional urban renewal, and close intergovernmental cooperation.
A key and controversial recommendation

�January 17, 1968
MEMORANDU11 FOR RECORD
Pursuant to instructions this date from Mayor Allen, I called a me eting
at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon between representatives of the Developers of the
Bankhead Turnkey site, their architects, the Housing Authority and the Water
Pollution Control Division in an eff ort to resolve the sewer problem. pertaining
to this site which was raised in a letter of January 12, 1968 to Mayor Allen
.f'rom Sheetz and Bradfield, architects for the project.
The following attended the meeting: :Vir. Jack Jones, Hr. McLauren and Mr.
W. D. McGrath, H. L. Gobel Construction Company, Greensboro, N.C., Mr. Richard
H. Bradfield, A.I.A., and Hr. Hatt Welsh, Sheetz and Bradfield Architects, Inc.,
Mr. M. B. Satter.field, Housing Authority, Mr. Robert H. i-Torriss and Mr. Raymond
Adair, Water Pollution. Control Division.
After explaining the purpose of the meeting (to try to arrive at a mutually
acceptable plan for resolving the sewer problem in connection with this project)
Mr . Morriss was called upon to present a proposal which he had made pertaining
to this matter substantially as contained in his memorandum January 16, 1968 to
Mayor Allen. Mr. Morriss also explained several other details related to this
project involving requir ements of his Division. Mr. Morriss also explained that
his proposal is subject to approval by the Public Works Cormnittee of the Board
of Aldermen, but that the City's portion of the cost involved would come within
his budget and that he had no reason to believe that it would not be approved by
the Public Works Committee.
I then asked Mr. Bradfield, Mr. Jones and Mr. Satterfield separately i f they
were agreeable to the proposal presented by Mr. Morriss. They all said t hey were
and agreed to work closely with :Vir. Morriss' Division in developing the preliminary
and final plans (in so far as the Water Pollution Control Division is concerned)
for the project.
Mr . Bradfield asked for confirmation in writing from Mr. Morriss of his
proposal and inquired when could he get such. Mr . Morriss replied t hat he would
provide Hr. Bradfield with a written statement of his proposal, including a
sketch of t he area 1whi ch was used during t he mee ting 1 and that he would get this
out t omorrow. He also agreed t o provide me with a copy.
As there was no further business to transact in connection with t his
particular issue, the meeting was adjourned at 2:40 p.m.

�A source close to the House Committee said that members who
attacked the measure viewed it as a frill in light of proposed
Federal spending cutbacks of $6 billion. He ~lso cited the difficulty
of defining "new communities," as opposed to housing and commercial
developments.
On other items, the Committee followed the recommendations
of its housing sub-committee. It tentatively approved an increase
from $1,500 to $3,000 in the maximum renabilitation grant for lowincome home owners, compared with an increase to $2,500 as proposed
by the Administration and approved by the Senate.
And the Committee okayed ' 2 related amendments which would
provide rehabilitation loans and grants to home owners in areas
of substantial blight outside urban renewal and code enforcement
areas a~d would authorize rehabilitation assistance to home owners in
deteriorated neighborhoods whosq,roperties are uninsurable under
proposed riot insurance legislation .

Living in a London Towne House is a new carefree living experience. But
now, you may wonder, in this era of rising prices, can a family find so much
luxury at so little cost?
ouses
The answers lie in three important categories.
1. "Volume Buying" . . . made possible through cooperative
home owAership purchasing power.
2. "Land Utilization" . . . in Townhouse living arrangements, expensive property is utilized to its fullest extent.
3. "Low Interest Rates" ... especially designed for this
program.
You don't have to be a millionaire to live like one. If you can qualify
make the smart move into a London Towne House. London Towne Houses

These questions and answers tell how it works.
WHAT IS A HOUSING COOPERATIVE?
A cooperative is a business owned by the people who use
it. You may belong to other co-operatives, such as credit
union or mutual insurance company.
Each member of London Towne Houses has an equal vote
in the cooperative corporation which holds title to the
property. A Board of Directors is elected by and from the
residents. The Board establishes standards to keep the
community a pleasant place in which to live.
IS IT LIKE RENTING?
Yes, in terms of convenience. You make one payment a
month - easy as rent _ without worrying about insurance, taxes, mortgage payments or mainten ance.
It's luxury living without a landlord, therefore, cooperative
<a
living is better than renting in many ways.
