MEMORANDUM
TO:
Carl Sutherland
FROM:
Dan Sweat t , ·_
SUBJECT:
Model Citi e s Personne l Requirements
-.../, r-,
~
This is to request that some advance consideration be given to the
problem of r e cruiting well qualified perso nne l to administe r the
City's Mod e l City Prog ram if and when such prog r am is funded by the
Fede ra l De par t me nt of Hous ing and Urba n Developme nt, As you know,
an applic a t i on for s uch a g r ant wa s prepa r ed in the ea rly par t o f the
year by the City Pl anning Depa rtment with a ss ista nc e from s eve r a l
other city de partme nts an d outside age nci e s and submitted to HUD
in February. We have been expecting to r e c e ive notific a tion of
approva l of our grant since the end of J une , howeve r, wi th the De t r oit
riots, e tc . th e dat e on which these gr ants will be announce d is very
difficult to predic t . The l a te s t word I have from so urc es in Wash i ng t o n
is tha t t he announcemen t o f thes e g r ant s may c ome ~i thin th e next t wo .
weeks. I am reasonably confide nt that Atlanta will be among the first
fe w cities to rec e ive such~ grant.
The pl ann ing period a llowed by HUD unde r the Mode l Cities Prog r am
is l imi t ed t o one year . I n other words , t he pl an for this t r eme ndous
p r ogram must b e compl e ted within one year from t he t i me the grant is
awarded or a t least frorn· t he time t he actua l f unds a r e received.
_)_
All of th is i s to point out the di ff iculty with wh i ch we a re f a c ed . We
mu s t s e cur e a staff o f competent pianners and admi ni s trators a t what
amounts to a mome nt s notice, ye t we can ' t be sure wh en that moment wil l
come. It s eems clear , howeve r , that t he on l y way we c an b e prepared to
move into this pro gr am within a reasonable iime after the grant is

announced is to have the personnel which will be required to fill
the top few positions in this program already recruited, or at l~ast
have a number of people who are qualified and interested in filling
these positions. Based on the difficulty that the Planning Department
experienced in fillin g their five new high-level planning positions;
I am convinced that we must start an intensive recruitment campaign
immediately. I recognize, hm-1 ever, that there are certain legal steps
that must be takep before any positions can be actually filled, namely,
the approval of such positions and the salaries by the Personnel Board
and the Board of Alderme n and the appropriation of sufficient funds by
the Board of Aldermen to cover the se salaries, In spite of the fact
. that these steps cannot be taken prior to the awarding of the grant funds
we should be able to begip an informal recruitment effort immediately.
In order to fill their fiye positions the Planning Department had to
resort to a nation wide advertising campaign and, in addition, had to pay
the transportation costs of bringing applicants to Atlanta for a personal
interview. · This type of effort may very well be necessary in this
Model Cities Program.
I have attached a listing of proposed positions, showing proposed monthly
salary rates and duration of employme nt, which was used in preparing our
application for grant funds. The positions which should be given top priority
for recruitment are the first four positions listed, I have also attached
a copy of the job description for the Project Director which was prepared
by personnel of your department. In addition, I have enclosed several
resume s which I have received since this application was submitted. I
understand that the Planning Department may also have a list of applicants
which might be qualified for one of these positions.
,
I would suggest that all of these Model City positions be included within
the classified service under the Civil Service laws of the City. Since the
project staff will be attached to the Mayor's office, the Mayor would act
as the appointing authority. His selections would be based upon the
recommendations of a selection team comprised of Earl Landers, Administrative
Assistant to the Mayor, Dan Sweat, Director of Governmental Liaison and
Collier Gladin, Planning Director, In accordance with the Civil Service
. laws this s e lection team would recommend from the top three candid·a tes on a
register established by the Personnel Department.
Again , I wish to point out the urgency of this situation and to urge that
some action be t ak e n i mm~di a tely to line up personne l for these positions . ·
This office is available to assist your department in implementation of
this request if you so desire .

The result has been a cutting of the ties 1
which oi1ce bound states and cities and a new'
o:-icnta:ion of the cities to Washington.
I
I
i\\1shington understands the problems of ;
the citi:?s. Washington is more responsive to l
th:?se needs than are the states. Washington !
also h::is the money.
II
ln the last few years Atlanta would have .I
been lost without tra nsfu sions of · federal '
money. These funds ha\·e gone into slum
clearance and rebu ild ing programs. They
h::n·e been used to tra in the un skilled, and ,
to im pro·;e the quality of educa tion in sub- I
st,rnda rd schools. They h:1ve gone into recreation areas in parts of town where the streets
furnished the only recrea tion. They have gone
to meet m::rny pressing human needs.
I
\\'ithout this direct federal aid, Atlanta
v:ould be in sorry shape.
Atlanta is counti ng on more federal aid to
6ct it over some big hump tomorrow. Portions of the city ought to be rebuilt. We must
continue to train people for jobs and there
are other human needs which must be met.
THE PRESIDENT'S budget contains many
items to aid urban areas. But the President is
having a hard time mustering voles for his
bu dget.
.'.lretropolitan Atlanta is represe nted by two
senators, and congressmen from the Fourth,
Fift h, Sixth, Seventh and Ninth Districts.
This is a nice block of voles. We trust
these representa tives understand Atlanta's
need for federal urban aid.
Of these congressmen, two especially represent Atlanta and we assume understand
this problem an d the needs of their constitu_
I
ents.
These are Fletcher Thompson of the Fifth ,
rind Ben niackhurn o[ the Fourth. They are
Rcpublic:rns and some might expect th em to '
vole again st the ad minislration for political
r cnson s.









Surely the nee d for big and fun d::imental
r.ew approaches is evident at a time when
the inner cores of n:.ost bif; cities have the
kind of rot and human deprivation that ieads
to a waste of children and possible tun:10il.
It i;; a sad irony that the congressional
representatives of many of the areas · most
needful of this kind of approach opposed the
program. There was a time when it seemed
that it had died. As usual. a chief threat w:J s
the votes and the power or numerous backwa rd-looking Southern representa tives in
Washington who were oblivious of the situati ons of their own cities .
But President J ohnson mustered ihe votes
required and the program; several times on
the verge of death, survived. IE it had not
been passe d before the 19tiG elections put
more conservative and r eactionary r epresen lati\'cs ihto Congress, it surely would have
been put aside for a long time to come.
So Atlanta (and other Georgia ci ties, fo r
oth ers al so apparen tl y will pa rticipate) have
had a lucky break in timing.
We are gl ad to see thi::: hopeful unclerlak- i
ing moving ahead.
>I<
~OLl'fl~S is politics. But r epresenting
their constituents is more important. The
1_1eeds of these two districts should outweigh
pressures to vole the party line.

would be renovated. :-:ew structures would

�.LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL
To the Mmnbers of the Committee on Banking and Currency:
The enactment of the Demonstration Cities and Metropolitan
Development Act marks a new era in our efforts to·rid our towns and
cities of blight and meet the problems of population growth. Programs to eradicate slums and to aid underprivileged citizens have
achieved notable success in the p ast, but experience has shown that
greater coordination is needed to obtain the maxi.mum value for
every dollar spent. Urban renewal cannot attain its full goal if we
rehabilitate and improve the housing but the people who live in them
still suffer the problems of poverty. Similarly, our efforts to improve
education, vocational training, health services, and so forth are greatly
handicapped if the families who receive this help must continue to
live in slums. The demonstration cities program will bring these
programs together so that the physical and social problems of an
area can be treated together.
Ano ther important shift in our approach to the needs of communities
and the people who live in them is the new program of urban planning
incen tives which provides a powerful inducement to all units of
government in metropolitan areas to plan together for their future
and to pu t these plans into action. A major new provision of the act
au thorizes assistance for whole new communities which can channel
homebuilding into well-planned a ttractive developments of major
sizes and which can counteract urb an sprawl.
·
The needs of our rural population are not forgotten in this act
which includes a title of perfecting and improving amendments to
our pr ograms in this field. Other titles offer new aid for the group
pr actice of m edicine, the preservation of valuable his toric structures,
and improvemen ts in existing programs.
·
T he many weeks of work that the committee devoted to this legislation have result ed in a landmark addition to our laws concerned with
housing and community development. The 10 titles and 90 sections
of the act represent one of the most comprehensive and -f orwardlooking actions in this field ever taken by Congress.
Sincerely,
WRIGHT PATMAN, Chairman.

�BRIEF S UMMARY OF PRINCIPAL PROVISIONS OF THE
DEMONSTRATION CITIES AND METROPOLITAN DEVELOPMENT ACT OF 1966
C OMPRE H E NSI V E CITY DEMO NSTRA TION PROGRAMS
The Secretary of Housing and Urban D evelopment is auth orized
to provide grants and technical assistance to help communities of all
sizes t o plan, develop, and carry out comprehensive city demonstration programs. These are locally prepared programs for rebuilding
or rest oring entire sections and neighborhoods of slum and blighted
areas by the con centra ted and coordinated use of all available Federal
aids t ogether with local, private, and governmental r esources.
The program will operate in t wo stages : (1) Assistance wi).l be
provided t o plan and develop demonstration programs ($12 million
for this fiscal year and $12 million for next fiscal year), and (2) after
J uly 1, 1967, assistance will be provided t o carry out the programs
planned ($400 million for next fiscal year and $500 million for the
following fiscal year) .
A ssistance for Planning a Demonstration Program
The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development will make gran ts
and provide technical assistance for planning city demonstration
programs. The Secretary is authorized to make grants to cover up
to 80 percent of the cost of planning and developing a city demonstration program.
These grants will be made to a " city demonstra tion agency". The
"city demonstration agency" may be a city , county, or any local
public agency established or designa ted by t he local governing body
to administer the comprehensive city demonstration program . It
may be a public agency created for the purpose of admmistering the
demonstration program or it may be an existing local public agency
assigned this responsibility.
Applications for assistance to plan demonstration programs would
be made by the "city demonstration agency" and must have the
approval of the local governing b ody of the city. The application
must show in broad and general terms th e nature a nd seriousness of
the city's problems and the outlines of what the city proposes to do.
Content of Demonstration Program
To quaJify for assistance, a city's demonstration program must meet
standards prescribed by the legislation. In general, the city's program must be designed to (1) renew enti,re slum neighborhoods by
combined use of physical and social development programs, (2)
increase substantially the supply of standard housing of low and
and moderate cost, (3) make marked progress in red11Cing social and
educational disadvantages, ill health, underemployment and enforced
idleness, and (4) contribute toward a well-balanced city .
In addition, the city's presentation must indics.tte that (1) the
projects and activities which are to be a part of the program will be
1
�2
DEMONSTRATION CITIES AND METROPOLITAN DEVELOPMENT ACT
initiated reasonably soon, (2) adequate local resources to car ry ou t
these projects and activities are, . <?r will be, available, (3) priv ate
initiative and enterprise will be u t1hzed to the fullest extent p ossible,
(4) a relocation plan to adequately serv e th ose displaced exists, a nd
(5) the progrfl-m is consistent with comprehensive planning · in the
entire urban and metropolitan area.
Assistance for Carrying Out the Program
Two types of Federal assista.nce will be available to help finance
projects or activities that are included a s par t of an approved comprehensive city demonstration program.
First, to the extent such projects or activities are eligible for assistance under an existing Federal grant-in-aid program, they m ay be
financed under that program. This legisla t ion contemplates that
existing Federal grant-in-aid programs-and funds now available for
those programs-will be utilized, where feasible , in carry ing out
projects or activities that, though part of a comprehensive city
demonstration program, are eligible for assistance under exist ing
grant-in-aid programs.
Second, special grants, supplementing th e assistance available
under existing gran t-in-aid programs would b e provided under the
demonstration cities program. The am ount of the special-supplemental- demonstration cities grant would be up t o 80 p ercent of the
total non-Federal contributions required to b e made to all projects
or activities assisted by existing Federal gr ant-in-aid programs which
are carried out as part of a comprehensive city demonstration program.
Use of Supplemental Grant Provided f or Demonstration Programs
The supplemental gran t funds au thorized to be paid to comprehensive city demonstration programs are not "earmarked" for any one
specific project or activity carried ou t as part of the demonstration
program. After the amount of the supplemental grant funds available
to the city is established under the formula in the legislation, the total
amount will be available to the city to be used to assist those projects
and activities included within the com prehensive city demonstration
progr8:m 'Yhich are not oth er wise assisted under an existing Federal
grant-m-a1d program. To the extent that these supplemental grant
funds are not n ecessary to support such projects and activities, they
may b e used by the cities to provide their required share of the cost
of new projects or activities included within the comprehensive city
demonstration program and assisted under an existing Federal grantin-aid program.
·

An additional $250 million in grant authority is provided f?r ur~an
renewal projects which are part of approved comprehensive city
demonstration programs.

makes it essen tial th at they prepare, keep current, and carry out comprehensive p lans and p rograms for their ~rderJy physical dernlopment
with a view to meeting efficiently all their economic and social needs.
It fu rther finds that metropolitan areas are esp eciall y handicapped
in this t ask by the complex1ty and scope of governmental ser vices
required in such rapidly growing areas, the. multiplicity of political
jurisdictions and agencies invol ved , and t he m~dequacy of the operational and administrative arrangements ava1l abl ~ fo r roop ern-tion

materially assisted in the solution of metropoli tan p_r?blems, bu t that
greater coordinat!on of Federal programs and add1t10n-a) p ar:tic ipation and cooperat10n are needed from the States and loca11ties rn perfecting and carrying out sue~ e!for ts.
