Dear Mr . Aldridge : ·
Subject:
Proj e ct No. Ga . R-97(CRP)
Community Renewal Program
Approval of Housing Cost s Study
The Housing Costs Study for the Atlanta Community Improvement Program
has been reviewed and found to be satisfactory.
It is recommended that the Model Cities Agency be advised of the
following :
a. To consider the recommenda tions and conclusions contained in
the Housing Cos ts Study in planning relocation resources, especially
as they concern housing p r ef erences, timi ng of development of
resources, treatment of particular neighborhoods or sub-areas, the
style and cost of housing and full utilization of HUD-assisted
housing programs.
b. To coordinate the Study recommendat ions with proposed NDP activities
within the Model Cities Area.
c. To include in the Relocation Program for the Model Cities Area
the matters included in paragraph a ab ove, in addition to reviewing
estLuates of displacement found in the Study.
d. Relative to housing resources proposed for relocation of residents
in or from the Model Cities Area, displacement should not exceed the
supply of new housing which can be assured of development within the
same displacement period. In view of the experimental nature of t he
Model Cities effort and the . recommendations in the Study to use all
possible methods and programs to keep housing prices low, it may be
necessary and desirable to show resources on a year-to-year basis
with first year displacement limited to the resource supply for that
�2
year, allowing the time for development of innovative housing programs
and in attaining necessary sponsorship on an open-ended basis. This
would require assurance that displa cement and resource supply will be
reviewed annually wi t h ame nded Relocation Programs provided to HUD
for concurrence before displa cement occurs.
Sincerely yours,
