Dear Congressman Weltner:

A Housing Resources Committee is being established in Atlanta
to work closely with and as an adjunct to the Mayor's Office in a
special effort to provide through private enterprise, non-profit
organizations and public housing sufficient housing units for all
those in low and medium income brackets in Atlanta to be housed
in decent, safe and sanitary housing and to eliminate existing
slums in our city.

Sub=sommittees of the Housing Resources Committee will soon
be appointed in various fields of endeavor to serve on the
Committee for accomplishing this momentous objective.

You have been nominated to serve with several others on the
Legal Sub-Committee. It is anticipated that at tts first meeting
each Sub-Committee will elect its own Chairman, who will also be
the Sub-Committee's representative on the Executive Group”

of the Housing Resources Committee as a whole.

It is also expected that each Sub-Committee, in addition to
supplying ''know how" in its particular field, will also be
influential at all levels to gain acceptance for and promotion

of the program and would select at least two young men from
firms which can afford to devote part of their time for intensive
work with the Sub-Committee.

It would also be helpful if each Sub-Committee could form an
advisory panel of people active in the field of housing, who would
remain free to pursue their active business without conflict of

Please advise Col. Malcolm Jones (telephone 522-4463, Ext. 432
or 437). :
