MEMORANDUM
To:

From:
Subject:
Dan Sweat
Grant Review Board - Model Cities
Attached are the minutes of the Grant Review Board meeting of
December 31, 1968. The recommendations set forth in this document
were accepted by the Model Cities Director and have resulted in much
better lines of communications between the Model Cities program and
the various City departments, other governmental agencies, and
private organizations who are involved in the execution of the Model
Cities program.
The Grant Review Board on February 27, 1969, discussed the current
status of the Model Cities program and the resolution for approval for the
first year program which will be brought before the Board of Aldermen on
Monday, March 3.
Collier Gladin, the City's Planning Director, felt that the approval of the
resolution should be initiated jointly by the Planning and Development
Committee and the Finance Committee and should not imminate from th.e
Aldermanic representatives on the Model Cities Executive Board. It was
the concensus of the Grant Review Board that the resolution for approval ·
should come from the E x ecutive Board and that it is the responsibility of
each Aldermanic Committee chairman to insure that his committee has
given proper attention to the program. It would be desirable for each
committee involve d to give its approval/disapp·r o v al on any paper coming
from the M o del Cities E x ec u tive Board prior to its being introduced in the
Aldermanic Board . Such Aldermanic Committe e e x pression attache d to
a Mod e l Cities paper w ould certainly strengthen the pap er and result in
much bette r com munications of the entire Model Cities program.
�t,__ ·- -

Mayor Allen
Page Two
March 3, 1969
In the final analysis, whenever a paper is introduced, it should be the
responsibility of each member of the Board of Aldermen to ask that -; t
be referred to the particular committee if there is some question about
its contents. The Model Cities organization should continue to seek
prior approval of City departments and Aldermanic committees prior
to introduction of a resolution or ordinance for approval by the full
Aldermanic Board.

�MINUTES
GRANT REVIEW BOARD
DECEMBER 31, 1968
The City of Atlanta Grant Review Board met in the office of the Director of
Governmental Liaison at 9:30 a. m. on December 31, 1968, to review the
Atlanta Model Cities Program application to the U. S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development for Supplemental Funds. In attendance were:
Dan Sweat, Director of Governmental Liaison, Chairman,
Grant Review Board
Collier Gladin, Planning Director, Member, Grant Review
Board
George Berry, Deputy Comptroller, Member, Grant
Review Board
Johnny Johnson, Director of Model Cities
George Aldridge, City Planner
Carl Paul, Deputy Director of Personnel
Jay Fountain, Senior Accountant
The Grant Review Board discussed with Mr. Johnson several major points of
. concern, primarily procedures for approval by responsible City departments
and agencies; administrative organization; .a nd personnel requirements.
In view of the complexities of the Model Cities Program and the need for full
understanding by all responsible City officials, the following concensus of the
Grant Review Board membership is hereby presented:
The Mod e l Cities Program as established by the President and Congress of the
United States is perhaps the most comprehensive and optimistic grant-in-aid
program ever offered to America's cities.
The concept and intent of the Model Cities Program is good. It provides for th e
legally responsible local governing authority to exercise its authority and
influence in demonstrating bold new techniques of urban planning and development.
It provides maximum opportunity for real involvement and participation by
citizens of neighborhoods in the planning and execution of programs whic h effect
their daily lives.
�.
.
-
Page Two
And it promotes coordination among local, state and national agencies and
departments of the limited resources which are available.
The successful planning and e x ecution of a Model Cities Program can be a
valuable experience for any city in its search for orderly and timely solutions ·
to its multitude of urban problems.
Atlanta's City Demonstration Agency has attempted to meet the challenge
and intent of the Model Cities legislation.
Citizens of all six neighborhood areas encompassed by Atlanta's Model Cities
Program were actively involved in organizing and planning for Model Cities
more than a year in advance of the beginning of the City's formal planning stage.
Local, state and federal public agencies and numerous private groups
participated in the preparation of the required planning grant application.
The Mayor and Board of Ald e rmen endorsed and supported the planning effort.
The Model Cities planning staff worked long and hard to prepare the documents
necessary for successful funding of the first year program.
The final documents detail a bold and innovative plan of attack on the major
problem areas in the Model Cities neighborhood. The Model Cities staff
has made an admirable attempt to live up to the concep!: of the 1v!or:! ,,.l Cities
. program. To a great e x t e nt they have met both the needs and wishes of the
citizens of the area and the requirements of planning and administration of the
City and federal gov ernments.

The Model Cities Program also places on all City depa rtments and agen cie s
the requirement for cooperation, coordination and approval of program
c ompone nts.
The r e a r e indicatio n s that t h is requi rement has not been m e t .
Wher e it h as n o t do n e so , each departme n t a n d age n c y i s obligate d to revi ew

the determination as to the compatibility of the Model Cities Program
with overall city plans.
The Finance Committee should determine the financial feasibility of the
program and the capability of the City to meet the requirements placed
upon it by the program.
The full Board of Aldermen should carefully consider the priorities involved
in the Model Cities execution, its impact on the area served and the entire
city as well.
The Grant Review Board believes these approvals should be given before
_Aldermanic sanction is granted.
We feel that if the provisions of the Model Cities application are understood
and accepted before final approval is granted a much stronger program will
result.
It should be understood that this is not intended as criticism of the planning
grant document or the work of the Model Cities staff, but is an effort to gain
full understanding and support of the strongest program in the best interest
of all citizens of Atlanta.
It is therefore recommended that the Mayor and Board of Aldermen require
written acceptance or denial of each component of the Model Cities plan by
the d epartments and agencies responsible for the exe cution of each component
befor e final approval of the grant application is given.

Dear Mr. Mann:
Reference is made to your letter of January 24 and Mayor Allen's reply
of January 28.
We are most interested in your offer to establish a subsidiary plant in
Atlanta. Obviously, with 38% of our families in the Model Cities area
headed by a female and the tight labor market for these people, your
operation would be a most significant contribution of mutual benefit .
We have training funds available, however, their use for training power
sewing machine operators is , at th e pre sent, a subject of controversy .
We are hopeful of a ruling in our favor.
In the meantime it would be helpful if you would provide us the following

The Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
Office of the Mayor
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
Knowing of your extreme interest in things good for Atlanta, I am submitting
an Idea for your consideration.
If the proposition seems to you that i t has possible merit, I would be happy
f or you to suggest a time for me to come to your office and discuss the matter
In detail.
Please understand fully that I do not approach you pos ing as a philanthropi st.
Profes sional and financial advantages to me personally are also involved .
My idea i s, over-s imp lifi ed, that if money for training purposes is avai l ab l e
from the "Model Cities" or 11 Economic Opportunity" programs in Atlanta , I can
provide 200 to 500 permanent jobs, mostly for women, sewing cotton work g loves .
Further, the operation could be located wherever desirable from your over-all

Dear Dan:
During t he Urban Exe cut ive Sess ions a t MIT you may r e call
that I t alked to yo u about the At l anta Mode l Cities Pr ogram . I
was part ic ul ar l y i nterested in your a ction progr am and e s pe cia lly

You suggested that I write to you at t he con clusion of the MIT
program .
I was reminded of this by an article appear in g in a publi cation called Federal -Urban Report to which we subscribe . The
last issue carried a brief resume of the Atlanta Mode l Cities
Program which appeared to be very comprehensive . I realize that
model cities program applicat i ons are rather long and are some times in short supply . However,I thought you might have available
a summar y of the program .
If the supply is short and you can find a way to loan me a
copy I would be happy to return it within two weeks if you so
desire.
Based on the latest weather information it appears that we
left Boston at about the right time -- wouldn ' t you agree?

Mr. Johnny Johnson, Director
Model Cities Program
673 Capitol Avenue, S. W.
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Johnny:
'
As you remember the Planning Staff reviewed the proposed
Land Use Plan late last November ·and forwa rded their comments
discussed them with you and give you a copy of them. I realize
impossible to ma ke any changes at that time while the weight of
your final report and application was on you.
Model Cities
to me. I
it was next to
preparing
Now that the application has bee n approved and the program funded, th is
would be a good time to continue the planning process through a closer look
in order that the se questions may be resol ved. The original comments have been
reviewed again and divided into three categories. The first are observations
which we think would be helpful to you but involve no errors of fact nor conflict
with plans or policies of the city. The second category involves errors of fact,
that is where no difference of opinion exists, somebody just put the wrong color
on the map. The third group contains the most serious of these comments,
these refer to apparent conflicts between Model City plans as we know them
and officially adopted plans and policies of the city.
·
I want to take every opportunity th is year to improve our working relationship
and insure that all the plans and policies that result will facilitate the implementation
of the Model Neighborhood and are consistent with the overal I goals and plans
of the city . I am sure you feel the same way .
Sincerely ,

�COMMENTS ON MODEL CITIES LAND USE PLAN
I.
Observations which may be of assistance.
A.
ALL NEIGHBORHOOD AREAS - GENERAL COMMENTS
1.
The overall residential densities have been measured anticipating
development slightly above average for the density range
indicated,
i.e.,
has been used.
if range is 5 - 10, the 8 unit per acre
This plan can be expected to accommodate
the existing resident population.
There have been some
minor adjustments that will improve the situation.
However,
care must be taken not to arbitrarily change the present
proposed density ranges unless compensations are made in
other locations.
This means no single family areas should
be inserted where high density is now proposed unless densities
are increased in another location.
An alternative to this is
to abandon the no-displacement goal. ·
2.
Some deficiencies still exist in park areas and to overcome
this and provide space, obviously densities will have to be
increased somewhere also.
B.
MECHANICSVILLE
1.
In the area bounded by the Expressway, Bass Stre~t, Formwalt,
Dodd and Pryor Streets, the plan proposes high density and
mixed corranercial in the next five years; however, redevelopment
is not proposed until after 1974 and the present use is mostly
single family and vacant.
It will be difficult to accomplish
the proposed land use in the proposed time period without a
program of treatment.
�-2--
2.
In the area bounded by the South and Wes t Expr essway, Bass
and Formwalt Streets, the plan proposes large areas of
commercial and high density residential; however, no treatment is called for prior to 1974 and the present use is now
equally divided between vacant, commercial and single family
residences.
C.
SUMMERHILL
1.
Between the Expressway and Fulton - Glenwood Streets, the plan
calls for high density ref-i oential; however, the treatment
plan only calls for activi. ty after 1974 and the present use
is mostly vacant, duplexes and single family residences.
This area also extends into the Grant Park neighborhood.
Obviously some development of this type will occur,
but not enough to achieve the expected population density.
D.
PEOPLESTOWN
1.
It is recommended that the frontage along the west side of
Washington hetween Atlanta and Ridge Streets be devoted
exclusively to high density residential which is in accord
with the present uses there.
2.
In the block between Washington and Crew Streets from Weyman
to Little Streets, high density residential is called for;
however, the treatment plan calls for action aft~r 1974 and
present use is primarily single family with some apartments
maki ng it medium densi t y overall .
E.
GRANT PARK
1.
To compensate fo r t he two pr oposed bl ock parks r edesi gnated fo r
s chool purposes , t he recr e ation p lanner s pr opose that one-half
of the block bound ed by Ormond, Grant, Atlanta and Hill Street
be madea block park.
The maj ority of the structures in this
block are substandard and slated for clearance in the period 1971-73 .
�2.
The bl ock b ounded by Hill Stree t, South Avenue , Primr os e and
Little Stree ts is pr oposed for corrrnerci a l use.
Ther e appear s
to be come doubt tha t the t opo of this block is suitable for
any kind of unified conunercial development.
3.
In the blocks bound ed by Grant , Sydney, Orleans Str eets and
Cherokee Avenue, high density residen t ial is proposed.
How-
ever, present use is perdomina tely single f amily and the proposed
trea tment is rehabilit a tion in the period 1971-1973.
4.
In the area between the EX'..'Tess way, Grant, Sydney Streets and
Park Avenue, the proposed us e is high density residenti a l.
This area is for rehabilitation in 1970 and the present use
is primarily single f amily.
To achieve the indicate d high
density, a significant number of high rise units must be
built.
5.
The area just west of Grant Park Elementary School is proposed
for high density residential.
However, no redevelopment is
proposed prior to 1974 and the pre s ent use is mostly single
family or vacant.
II.
Errors of Fact
A.
MECHANICSVILLE
1.
The pl a n calls for a government center use in the triangle
between the railroad, the Expressway and the Pryor Street
School.
Since most program administration is to be accomplished
at two othe r loc ations, ther e appear s t o be no justification fo r
thi s c e nte r ar e a.
It i s r ecommended t hat t hi s parti cul ar
area be us ed f or medium dens i t y r es i denti al .
�B.
GRAi.~T PARK
1.
The Boys' Club is loc at ed in the block bound ed by Killi an,
Mar ion, Burn and Elois e Streets.
In the Model Cities plan
this has been indicated as single family use which is a
mistake and should be changed.
2.
The r e cre a tion planners have indicated that the area south
of Jerome Jones School designated for park purposes should
/
!
be changed tO school use.
3.
I
The indust r i a l use existing at the corner of Boulevard a~d
the railro ad has been omitted and single family resident.ial
use substituted.
4.
This should be changed to industrial use.
On the east side of Hill Avenue between Grady and the railroad
medium density residential is indicated.
This is present!~
good single family residential use at low density and no
clearance has been proposed.
This area should be indicated
as low density residential.
5.
The recreation planners have indicated that the block park to
the east of Slaton School should be used instead for school
expansion purposes.
6.
The block of the proposed educational park bounded by Hill,
Primrose Streets, Georgia Avenue and Cherokee Place is in
reality intend ed for another use, that of some sort of
private welfare type activity, either profit or non- profit,
a nd should be indicated as such and not as an educational
use .
�-5.-
C.
SUMMERHILL
- 1. -- An expansion of the small coromerc_
i al area at the southeast
corner of Atlanta and Capitol is proposed for expansion north
and west.
The condition of the major structures in the
northwest portion is fairly good and there is no program
of treatment slated prior to 1974.
This would indicate
that such a change in use is not indicated nor does there .
appear to be a need for additional commercial use when there
are other commercial areas ~,ear by.
- - . -III. - Conflicts With Adopted Plans and F'olicies
A.
SUMMERHILL
1.
This item concerns the park proposed in the blocks bounded by
G_eorgia, Capitol, Little and Crew Streets.
The entire
Summerhill area needs two twelve acre or more neighborhood parks.
The recreational facility proposed at Hoke Smith is
not a neighborhood type development and will not serve the
neighborhood needs north of Georgia Avenue.
This facility
south of G~orgia Avenue is proposed to be a "central park"
type facility and, therefore, would not seem to meet the
neighborhood recreational needs of the area south of Georgia
Avenue.
The northern block of the park is obviously more suitable for commercial development in conjunction with the
other blocks along Georgia Avenue immediately adjacent
to the stadium.
The other two blocks contain a number of
substantial standard apartment buildings whose removal would
be expensive and undesirable .
�-6The main justification that appears for this site
___is__itL_proximity to the Capitol Avenue School; however,
the long range future of this school is questionable in
terms of its site and its location relative to the existing
and propo~ed-population to be served.
A better park location would be next to the proposed
j
I
K,1-3 school mentioned earlier especially if the Capitol
Avenue
School could also be relocated to this site.
The
area adjacent to the new school site is proposed for clen.rahce
.. -
in the perLod __-__197_1,"'.'.t9.?J - while . P9 tr_eatment is proposed
for t.~e park site adjacent to the present school until after
the 1974 time period with the exception of the block immediately
adjacent to Georgia Avenue.
2.
The plan calls for a school site in the two blocks bounded
by Martin, Little, Ami and Kenneth Streets.
The school planners
reveal this is only to be a K, 1-3 school requiring only
three acres at maximum; therefore, w~thout further justification,
for example, a new gramnar school to replace Capitol Avenue,
this site appears to be excessively large.
3.
In considering the land use aspects of the Hoke Smith Educational Park, it is our understanding that the Parks Department
is highly reluctant to buy and develop any large recreational
facilities directly abutting a high school as it feels the
facility will be monopolized by the school to the detriment
of the- rest of the community.
The School Board, on the other hand, believes that the
Parks Department should acquire the portions of the educational
park allocated for recreational use.
�-7 The resolution of this problem is not in the province
of the land use planners; however, the graphic expression
of proposed land use should show .a solution tha t either
indicates all educational facility reduced in size to what
the School Board would acquire or a recreation use area
that is situated to the s a tisfaction of the Parks Department.
One glimmer of hope is that the school planners used
$80,000 per acre as an acquisition cost; however, the land
is slated for clearance in 1970 and hopefully the land
could be sold to the School Board at cleared land prices
of about $20,000 - $30,000 an acre,
B.
PEOPLESTOWN
1.
Neither the recrea~ion planners nor the city wide Land Use
Plan and Parks Plan call for a block park to be located at
the end of Linam Street just south of Vanira Avenue.
C.
PITTS BURGH
1.
In this area, there appears to be on~y one major comment
to be made.
This is that in comparison with the city wide
Land Use Plan which proposes a uniform medium density
throughout the neighborhood, the Model Cities proposal
indicates two high density areas .•. one at the northwest,
the other at the southeast.
The high density area at the
southeast can be adequately served by the existing Pittman
Park; however, the high density area to the northwest will
provide a large concentration of people who will not be
conveniently served by an adequate recreation facility .
�- 8D.
MECHANICSVILLE
1.
All plans call for a C01!1ffiunity facility to be located in
the block just east of Dunbar School, and :i.t is my understanding that social progr ams are expected to be administered
from here; however, the Land Use Plan does not indicate a
space for this facility.
2.
Since one block of land that was to be used for park
purposes in . our city wide Land Use Plan has been pre-empted
by the school board for a ~P.cond school in the area according to the Model Cities Land Use Plan, it will be necessary
to add the block now occupied by the Atlanta Transit System
to the park proposed in the Model Cities plan in order to
get adequate space to serve this large population concentration.

Marietta, Georgia
Dear Tom:
The City of Atlanta today was announced as America 1 s second city
to receive a grant for execution of its Model Cities Program in 196 9.
There are so many reasons why our city was able to submit and
receive approval of its program ahead of the other major cities -- the
support and concern of the residents of the area, the cooperation of
public and private agencies in preparing the planning document, the
help of the federal agencies and the cooperation and backing of the
Board of Aldermen.
Another significant and important reason for our success was the
direct assistance we received from you and the Lockheed-Georgia
Company.
We have heard much talk about the involvement of private industry in
the resolution of our urban problems.
We have also heard expressed
the need to provide for the transference of the technologies of modern
private industry to our urban governments in order that these problems
can be met.
The involvement of Lockheed-Georgia in the planning and d evelopment
of Atlanta 1 s ·Model Cities Planning document does - both.
Without the
expert professional and technical capability and the logistical support
of Lockheed-Georgia, I think I can safely say that the city could not
and would not have been able to complete and submit its planning grant
request b e fore well into 1969.
Particular thanks are due not only for the most cooperative manner in
which the assistance was offered, but also for the personal abilities
and interes t of the staff members p r ovided.

Mr. Tom May
,
Mr. Hugh Gordon and Mr. Oz Adams recognized and understood
the value to the city of Lockheed's participation.
Mr. Richard D. Henderson and Mr. Sheldon R. Dickstein were
particularly effective in . scheduling and coordinating the overall Model
Cities staff effort and providing, through their own technical proficiency,_ . a direction and organization which substantially contributed
to the completeness and quality of the planning document and the ·
timeliness with which it was completed.
Many other fine L9ckheed citizens .contributed 1n the preparation of
graphics and printing of the final document.
And, of course, your support and encoura&ement of everyone who had
a hand in this effort was essential to its final high achievement.
Again, my personal thanks to you and the Lockheed-Georgia Company
for demonstrating the civic-minded attitude and sense of overall
community responsibility which has long been associated m.th your
fine company.
Sincerely,

�CITY OF ATLANTA PLANNING DEPARTMENT
OFFICIAL POSITION PAPER
RELATION OF PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT TO MODEL CITIES EXECUTIVE BOARD AND STAFF
-PROBLEM STATEMENT AND RECOMMENDATIONS- -
Respe ctfully submitted ,
@~B~
Colli er B. G ladin
Plan ning Dire ctor
February 13, 1969
�The purpose of this paper is to identify certain problems which have
arisen in the comprehensive planning process in Atlanta over the past year.
The problem centers around a misunderstanding of the responsibilities of
the Model Cities Program staff and Executive Board in relation to the
responsibilities of Planning and Development Committee and its professional
staff arm, the Planning Department.
In November 196(, the Planning and
Development Committee of the Board of Aldermen sponsored and recommended
--
approva I of a resolution establishing the Mode I Cities Executive Board.
This resolution was subsequently adopted by the Board and approved by the
Mayor on November 20, 1967. The resolution specifically stated that
11
the
Mode I Neighborhood Executive Board is hereby created for the purpose of
administering the planning phase of (the Model Neighborhood) program. 11
· The Planning Department invested a great deal of time and effort both
in preparing the Model Neighborhood Application and subsequently in assisting
in developing the Model Neighborhood Plan .
In fact, much of the material
contained in all the Model Cities reports and applications originated and was
refined in the Planning Department by its staff personnel.
It was and still is
our intention to work closely with the Model Cities staff in assuring the success
�r
-2of th is program. There appears now to be a lack of unde rstanding on the
part of the Model Cities staff as to the role and responsibili ty of the
Planning and Development Committee and !he Planning Department. The
committee, using the department as its staff arm, is charged with the
responsibility of reviewing all plans and programs concerned with urban
growth, development, and redevelopment throughout the city. The
Model Cities Program, on the other hand, is a special purpose six
neighborhood demonstration program primarily concerned with one tenth of
the city's residents and less than five per cent of the city's area. For
consistency sake, obviously the Planning and Development Committee
should review the physical programs, plans and proposals developed by this
agency for the Mode I Neighborhood ~rea as it wou Id review plans and programs
of any othe r a rea of the city for conformance with ove rall city policy and
goals . The Planning Department's conce rn is not control over the Model
Citie s Program.
Instead, the department is simply exercising those functions
for whic h it is re sponsibl e a s staff a rm to the Planning and Deve lopme nt
Committee and as se t forth in the Code of the City of Atlanta. The de partmen t,
as a ge ne ral plann ing age ncy, must have the opportunity to re view plans .
Whe n in the de partmen t's professi ona I judgment inadvisab le proposa ls ha ve bee n
a dvoca ted tha t lac k a ny justifica tion in v iew of existing c ity policy , the n th e
department must have the opportunity of repor t ing su ch si tuations with positive
re comme nda t ions for improve me nt to the Planning and Deve lopme nt Committee
�-3and eventually the Board of Aldermen.
We had assumed at the beginning that conflicts could be resolved through
a close inter-staff relationship between the city planning agency and the
Mode I Cities agency.
Unfortunately and frequently, because of conflict
commu~ications have broken clown and th is has not been achieved.
The source
of conflict has been a disagreement over the necessary degree of conformity
between Model City plans and programs and City overall goals and objectives.
The Planning Department has attempted to explore and resolve this problem
with the Model Cities staff.
However, the Model Cities staff seems to
interpret this action as a Planning Department attempt to run their program. An
analysis of their lack of understanding indicates no apparent realization of
the fact that the planning effort for a portion of the city should be coordinated
with the city's overall planning effort.
It is important to point out here that we
are not attempting to stiffle the Model Cities Program or to prevent innovative
approaches to problem solving. To take such a view ignores the fact that
through the leadership and effort of the Planning Department, with much assistance
from other agencies, Atlanta was awarded one of the first Mode I Cities Grants
in the nation.
Perhaps this whole misunderstanding is based on the Model Cities staff's
perception of the Planning Department as a I ine department.
Planning transcends
traditional departmental lines, is a staff function, and established responsibilities
as defined in the Code of the City of Atlanta must be met . One of HUD •s
underlying goals for the Model Cities Program was to bring into clear focus
�-4problems in governmenta I organization. The department has been we 11
aware of such problems in the Atlanta governmental system as witnessed
in
the PAS report, a product of the Cl P and pl_anning. Tho~gh that report found
fault with the governmental system, it indicated that the present system
has worked very well, primarily on the basis of mutual trust and cooperation.
In order to avoid further conflicts it is imperative that such a cooperative
atmosphere be es tab I ished.
It is inadvisable that the alderman ic committee
system be used at times and ignored at others, depending on which happens
to serve one's purpose best at a particular time.
It is difficult enough to
make the system work now • The proposed approach being offered by the
Model Cities Program (which is to ignore the aldermanic committee system)
would invite chaos, unless a suitable and acceptable ove ral I reform is
accomplished.
The Planning and Development Committee ex pressed its concern over this
problem in its meeti~g of January 17, 1969. Chairman Cook asked the Model
Cities director several questions concerning the role of the Planning and
Development Committee, other aldermanic committee s, and city departments
i n the Model Cities Program . Mr. Johnson took the position that the Model
Cities Execut ive Board would re port to the full Board of Ald e rmen through the
tw o a ld ermanic membe rs of the Executive Board . Th is proce dure, in effe ct ,
bypasses the Planni ng a nd De ve lopm e nt Committe e a nd to a la rge extent
ignores the alderma n ic standi ng c ommittee conc e pt under which the Atla nta
City Government present ly o pe rates.
In e ffect, the Mode l Cities area is thus
�-5treated as a separate entity, apart from the total city.
It offers no
. opportunity for the Planning and Development Committee to review Model
Cities plans and to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen
concerning plan conformity with city general plans. Chairman Cook further
indicated that the Planning Department had certain reservations about
physical plans for the Model Cities area and a sked what role would be
played by the Planning Department in further testing plans for the area. Mr.
Johnson stated that he felt the physical plans for 1969 required no change.
Here lies the crux of the problem. Mr. Cook stated that the Planning Department
was responsibl e for all planning activitie s throughout the city, therefore,
the Planning and Development Committee has the responsibility to review and
evaluate physical plans develope d for the Model Cities area.
This pape r deals with a confrontation in res ponsibilitie s be twee n th e
Model Cities staff and Executive Board, the Planning De partment and Planning
and De ve lopment Committee of th e Board of Alde rm e n. We strongly suspe ct
that th e fundam e ntal probl e ms a nd issu es involved he re could spread. Thus, other
confrontations could de ve lop be twee n other de partme nts and their a lde rmanic
committees and the Mode l Citie s staff and Exe cutive Board .
In this li gh t, we o ffe r the fo llow ing recomme ndat io ns:
The a dopt ion of a formal re view proce dure by th e Board of Aldermen tha t
is consiste nt with the existi ng a ldermanic committee system is warran ted.
In
oth e r words, e very reso lu tion , ordi nance , e tc . , wh e n introdu ce d into the Board
�-6of Aldermen meeting, must be referred to a standing committee of the Board
of Aldermen unless such a rule of procedure is waived by majority vote of
the full Board of Aldermen. A time limit on the period of review by the
standing committee of the Board of Aldermen could be specified. As with all
issues concerning the city, the matter will eventually be resolved on its
merits by the full Board of Aldermen.
The value of such formal review procedure by the Board of Aldermen
should be fairly apparent.
It keeps the appropriate aldermanic committees
and department staffs informed of proposals and offers an opportunity for
reviewing, making recommendations and achieving coordination.
As mentioned earlier, to ignore the aldermanic committee system is
to invite chaos, unless a suitable and acceptable overal I reform is accomplished.
A second alternative approach to the current situation would be to immediately
move toward es tab I ish ing a Department of Administration in the Mayor's Office
as recommended by the PAS Report. Such a department would include the
following functions: Planning, Budgeting and Manageme nt, Personnel, Public
Information, and Data Processing. The Model Cities Program, with its innovative
approaches and demonstrations, would serve as a testing vehicle for administrative
and technical purposes and would be responsibl e· to th e Mayor and Board of
Aldermen through the Department of Administration.

with an opportunity to see and discuss first hand the problems of our inner cities
and to assess the adec.iuacy of current Federal programs in alleviating urban
problems. Th is tour is being sponsored by the United States Conference of
Mayors and is intended to be educational, rather than investigative.

Following this discussion, Mr . Cook asked the members of the Pla nning and

Development Committee to retire to Committee Room #! to conduct a
business session of the Committee. He asked the Congressmen to keep their
seat for a presentation by the DepC1,1rr:ent of finance, after which they
would take a tour of the Model Cities area and continue their itinerary for
the day.
The Committee reconvened in Committee Room #I at 3:30 P. M. and the
· following business was considered:
STATUS OF URBAN RENEWAL PROJECT AREAS - CLOSE OUT
Hov-rard Openshaw, Director of Redevelopment for the Atlanta Housing Authority,
presented each committee mer:nber present a written status report of Atlanta's
Urban Renewa'I Program as of January 29, 1969. (See copy attached to original
of these minutes).
Because of the lengthy agenda only the Butler Street, Rawson-Washington,
and University Center Projects were discussed at th is meeting.
(_ _,
The high I ights of the discussion on each project follows: (Secretary's note - the
discussion on each project centered around the Status Report and reference
should be made thereto.)
Butler Street:
The Butler Street Project is the closest to completion, awaiting only the construction
contract of the middle school and disposition of a small area of land .. The
conversion of the school from elementary to middle has caused~ delay in that
the architects had to start over. It appears now that the earliest date construction
can start will be the middl~ of August.
The Chairman then requested that Mr. Openshaw prepar~ a letter .for his
signature to Dr. Letson urging that every step possible be taken to expedite this
matter.
It was pointed out that a Resolution had be~n passed by the Board of Aldermen
designating the area around Ebenezer Baptist Church as a historic site (Martin
Luther King, Jr. memorial) and the Housing Author ity subsequently removed
the property from the market for commercial reuse; whi le this will not prevent
the clos~ out of the project, it does need to be resolved before the Housing
Authority can complete thei~ work.
~
Chairman Cook also asked Mr . Openshaw to draft a letter to Mr . Bax ter of
l
�Minutes
Planning and Development Committee
January 31, 1969 - Page Three
the Department of Housing and Urban Development urging rapid approval
on Parcel C-5 and to send him a carbon copy with a note reminding him to
personally call Mr. Baxter about the matter.
Chairman Cook continued to ask questions and make these requests because of
his concern, and the Committee as a whole shared his concern, about the
· mounting cost to the city, through interest charges, resulting from delays in
closing out the urban renewal projects.
Rawson-Washington:
The Chairman asked Mr. Openshaw to report what the proje.c t situation would
be (relative to the 95% disposition requirement) if any two of the three
parcels (Ebenezer Project, park arid school) were disposed of; specifically,
could the project be closed out under the condition that the community
facilities buildings 14% non-cash credit would be lost. He also asked Mr.
Persells to verify with HUD whether or not the credit wou Id, in fact, be
lost, since he was not positive about the requirement. ·
Jay Fountain of the Finance Department was asked to explore the possibility
of the city carrying out its commitment in this project through the use of 1 63 Bond
Funds.
Mr. Cook requested that Mr. Openshaw write Mr. Baxter of HUD requesting
that amendment #9 (reference status report) be carried out as quickly as possible.
Relative to amendment #9, the question arose as to the disposition of the land
in the blocks bounded by Georgia Avenue, Capitol Avenue, Bass and Washington
Streets. It was pointed out that the city's Land Use Plan and previous project
plans called for some type of commercial reuse for the area . However, a conflict
exists with this proposal and the Model Cities proposal, which call.s for the
development of temporary office facilities and a Housing Center .~n the sites.
Mr . Cook asked who has control of the Rawson - Washington Pro1ect and commented
he didn't see how we could plan an area if along the way half the area gets
usurped . " ·

Mr . Gladin e mphasi z ed that th is problem is stalemated on the basis of fwo
a lderman ic decisions and needs to be resolved . It was noted that the Model
Cities people expe ct to occupy their new offices by March I~ .

Mr. Openshaw stated he felt we owed them th is kind of di rection; further,
he didn't think anything should happen to urban renewal projec t land without
the approval of the Housing Authority, Planning Department and this
committee.
It was the. consensus of the committee that Mr. Gladin notify the Director
of Model Cities Program that the entire area in question will be considered
for commercial reuse and request that they conside r another location. It
was also felt there needed to be further clarification on the line of autfit)rity
-· .in this matter.
University Center:
The committee unanimously approved the Housing Authority proceeding with
an amendment deleting from the University Project seven (7) Fulton County
owned lots on the south side of Hunter Street, as recommended by the
Housing Authority.
The elimination of the grade separation at Northside Drive and Hunter Street
will require a plan change to permit disposition of the property; commitments
by Central Methodist Church and the Celotex Corporation to acquire and develop
the land will be required.
In discussing close out of the Project, Mr . Persells stated to keep in mind
the expansion discussions with Atlanta University.

Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Johnny:
· ·-·- As you remember the Planning Stoff reviewed the proposed Model Cities
Land Use Pion late last November and forward e d their comments to me. I
discussed them with you and give you a copy of them. I realize it was next to
impossible to make any changes a! that time while the weight of preparing
your final report and application was on you.
Now that the oppl ication has been approved and the program funded, th is
would be a good time to continue the planning proce ss through a closer look
in order that these questions may be resolved. The original comments have been
reviewed again and divided into three categories. The first are observations
· which we think would be helpful to you but involve no errors of fact nor conflict
with plans or policies of the city. The second category involve s errors of fact,
-·- that is whe re no difference of opinion e x ists, somebody just put the wrong color
___ on the ~op ~- Th e third group contains the most serious of th ese comme nts,
these refer to apparent conflicts between Model City plans as we know them
and officially adopted plans and policies of the city.
·
I want to ta ke e ve ry opportunity th is ye ar to improve our working re lationship
and insure that all th e plans and policie s that result will facilitate the impl eme ntation
-of the Mode l N e ighborhood and are consiste nt with the ove rall goals and plans
of the city . I am sure you feel th e same way.
Sincerely,

HODEL CITIES Lf.~m USE PLAN'
--
Observations which may be of assistance.
A.
ALL NEIGHBORHOOD A'REAS - GfiiERAL COHHENTS
1.
-- - -· - · ... ------ -- --· ·- -·
The overall residential densities have been measured anticipating
_development slightly above average for the density range
indicated, i.e., if range is 5 - 10, the 8 unit per acre
has been used.
This plan can be expected to accommodate ·
the existing ·resident population. ·· There have been some
__p:iinor adjustments that will improve the situation.
However,
care must be taken not to arbitrarily change the present
proposed density ranges unl~ss compensations are made in
other locations.
This means no single family areas should
be inserted where high density _is now proposed unless densities
are increased in another location.
An alternative to this is
to abandon the no-displacement goal. ·
2.
Some deficiencies still exist in park areas and to overcome
this and provide space, obviously densities will have to be
increased somewhere also.
B.
MECHANICSVILLE
1.
In the area bounded by the Expressway, Bass Stre~t, Formwalt,
Dodd and Pryor Streets, the plan proposes high density and
mixed commercial in the next five years; however, redevelopment
is not proposed until after 1974 and the present use is mostly
single family and vacant.
It will be difficult to accofilplish
the proposed land use in the proposed . time period without a
program of treatment.
�--2--
2.
In the area bounded by the South and West Expressway, Bass
·- -- -and Pormwalt Stree ts, the pl.an proposes large areas of
commercial and hi.gh density residential; however, no treatment is called for prior to 1974 and the present us e is now
equally divj_ded between vacant, comme rcial and single family
residences.

~--..-_ ·-- C. ,· St"t:,r!{ZiUiILL
1.
Between the Expressway and Fulton - Glenwood Streets, the plan
calls for high density re~iciential; however, the treallllent
· -··plan only calls for acti vi. ty after 197l• ·and the present use

is .mostly .vacant, duplexes and single family residences.
This area also extends into the Grant Park neighborhood.
Obviously some developme nt of this type will occur,
but not enough to achieve the expected population density.
D.
PEOPLESTOHN
1.
It is recommended that the frontage along the west side of
Washington between Atlanta and Ridge Streets be devoted
exclusively to high density r esidential which is in accord
_ _ _~ith the present uses there .
.2.
In the block between Washington and Crew Streets from Weyman
to Little Streets, high density residenti a l is called for;
however, the treatment plan calls for action aft~r 1974 and
present use is primarily sing le family with some apartments
making it medium density overall .
E.
GRANT PARK
1.
To compensate f or the two proposed block parks redesignated for
school purposes, the recreation planners propose that one- half
of the block bounded by Ormond, Grant, Atlanta and Hill Street
be madea block park.
The majority of the structures in thi s
block are substandard and slated for clearance in the period 1971-73 .
�2.
The block bound ed by Hill Stree t, So11th Avenue , Primrose and
··Little Streets is propos ed for corr:mercia.l use.
There appe ars
to be corne doubt that th e topo of this block is suitable for
any kind of unified commerci a l development.
-- --3, · In the blocks bounded by Grant, Sydney, Orieans Streets and
Cherokee Avenue, high dens ity residential is proposed.
How··
ever, pres ent us e i s perdomin ately sinsle f amily and the proposed
treatment i~ rehabilitation in the period 1971-1973.
4.
In the area between the Ex~~ress way, Grant, Sydney Streets and
Park f\_v_~_nue_, the propos ed use is high density residentj_a l.
This area is for rehabilitation in 1970 and the present use
is primarily single family.
To achieve the indicated high
density, a sj_gnificant number of high rise units must be
built.
5.
l'he area just west of Grant Park Elementary School is proposed
for high density r esid ential.
However, no r e development is
,.
propos ed pr ior to 1974 and the pr esent us e is mos tly sing l e
family or vacant.
II.
Errors of Fa ct
A.
MECHANI CSVILLE
1.
The plan calls for a gover nment cente r us e in the triangl e
be tween the railroad , the Expressway and the Pryor Stree t
School.
Since most pr ogram admini strati on is to be a ccomplished
at two other locations, t h ere appears t o be no justifica tion for
-- thi s center area.
It i s recommended tha t thi s particul ar
area be used for medium density residential.
10-··
~
~
...
�B.
GRANT PAI!.K
L ·__ The _Boys' Club is located in the block bounded by Killian,
Marion, Burn and Eloise Streets.
In the Model Cities plan
- ·-·--this - has been indicated as single f amily use which is a
mistake and shoul d be change d.
2.
The recreation planners have indicated that the area south
of Jerome Jones School designated for park purposes should
I
be ch~nged to school use.
3.
The industrial -use existing at the corner of Boulevard .a~d
--the _railroad _has _peen__omi_tted and singl~__ family residential
use substituted.
4.
This should be changed to industrial use,
On the east side of Hill .Avenue betwe en Grady and the railroad
medium density residential is indicated.· This is presentl~
good single family residential .use at low density and no
clearance has been proposed.
This area should be indicated
as low density residential.
5.
The recreation planners have indicatt:d that the block park to
the east of Slaton School shoald be used instead for school
expansion purposes.
6.
The block of the proposed educational park bounded by Hill,
Primrose Streets, Georgia Avenue and Cherokee Place is in
reality intended for another use, that of some sort of
private welfare type activity, either profit or non- profit,
and should be indicated as such and not as an educational
-use .
�-5C.
SUNHERHILL
1.
An expansion of the small commercial area at the southeast
corner of Atlanta and Capitol is proposed for expansion north
and west.
The condition of the major _structures in the
northwest portion is fairiy good and -~ here is no program
of tre~tment slated prior to 1974.
This would indicate
that such a change in use is not indicated nor does there
appear to be a need for additional commercial use when there
are other commercial areas nearby.
III.
Conflicts With Adopted Plans and Policies
A.
SUNHERHILL
1.
This item concerns the park proposed in the blocks bounded by
Georgia, Capitol, Little and Crew Streets.
The entire
Summerhill area needs two twelve acre or more neighborhood parks.
The recreational facility proposed at Hoke Smith is
not a ne ighborhood type development and will not serve the
neighborhood needs north of Georgia Avenue .
This facility
south ~f Georgia Avenue is proposed to be a "central park"
type facility and, ther efore, would not seem to meet the
neighborhood recreational needs of the area south of Georgia
Avenue.
The northern block of the park is obviously more suit-
able for commer cial deve lopment in conjunction with the
other blocks along Georgia Avenue immediately adjacent
to the stadium.
The other two blocks contain a number of
substantial standard apartment buildings whose removal would
be expensive and und es irabl e.
�-6The main justification that appears for this site
is its proximity to the Capitol Avenue School; however,
the long range future of this school is questionable in
terms of its site and its location relative to the existing
and proposed population t9 be served.
A better park location would be next to the proposed
K, 1-3 school mentioned earlier especially if the Capitol
Avenue School could also be relocated to this site.
The
area adjacent to the new sc~ool site is proposed for clearance
in · the period - 1971-1973 - while no treatmen t is proposed
for the park site adjacent to the present school until after
the 1974 time period with the exception of the block i mmediately
adjacent to Georgia Avenue~
2.
The plan calls for a school site in the two blocks bounded
by Martin, Little, Ami and Kenne th Streets.
The school planners
reveal this is only to be a K, 1-3 school r equiring only
three acres at maximum; therefore, w~thout further justification,
for example, a new grarmnar school to replace Capi tol Avenue ,
this site appears to be excessively large.
3.
In considering the l and use aspects of the Hoke Smith Educational Park, it is our unders t anding that the Parks Depar tment
is highly reluctant to buy and develop any large recreationa l
faciliti es directly abutting a high school a s it feels the
facility will be monopolized by the school to the detriment
of the res t of the community.
The School Board, on the other h and, be lieves that the
Parks Depa rtme nt should acquire the portions of the educational
park allocated for recreational use.
�-7The resolution of this problem is not in the province
of the _land use planners; ho'.-1ever, the graphic expression
of proposed land use should show a solution that either
indicates all educational facility reduced in size to what
the School Board v!ould acquire or a recreation use area
that is . situated to the satisfaction of the Parks Department.
One glin:rner of hope is that the school planners used
$80>000 per acre as an acquisition cost; however, the land ·
is slated for clearance in 1970 and hopefully the land
--- could- be .sold .to _.the School. Board at cleared land prices
of about $20,000 - $30,000 an acre.
B.
PEOPLESTO~-TN
1.
Neither the recrea~ion planners nor the city wide Land Use
Plan and Parks Plan call for a block park to be located at
the end of Linam Street just south of Vanira Avenue.
C.
PITTSBURGH
1.
In this area, there appears to be only one major comment
to be made.
This is that in comparison with the city wide
Land Use Plan which proposes a uniform medium density
throughbut the neighborhood, the Mode l Cities proposal
indica t es two high density areas ••• one at the northwes t,
the other at the southeast.
The high density area at the
S·outheast can be adequately served by the existing Pittman
Park; however , the high densi ty area to the northwes t will
-provide a large concentration of people who will not be
conveniently served by an adequate r ecreation facility •
.-
�--8D.
HECHANICSVILLE
lr
All plans call for a community facility to be located in
the block just east of Dunb ,:tr School, and it is my understanding that social programs are expected to be administer~d
from here; however, the Land Use Plan does not indicate a
space for this facility.
2.
Since one block .of land that was to be used for park
purposes in our city wide Land Use Plan has been pre-empted
by the school board for a s~cond school in the area accord -
ing to the Model Cities L~nd Use Plan, it. w_i ll _be . necessary ____.
to add the block now occupied by the Atlanta Transit System
to the park proposed in the Model Cities plan in order to
get adequate space to serve this large population concentration.

GRANT REVIEW BOARD
DECEMBER 31, 1968
The City of Atlanta Grant Review Board met in the office of the Director of
Governmental Liaison at 9: 30 a. m. on December 31, 1968, to review the
Atlanta :NJ;odel Cities Program application to the U. S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development for Supplemental Funds. In attendance were:
Da:!:1 Sweat, Director of Governmental Liaison, Chairman,
Grant Review Board
- - -·collier Gladin, Planning Director, Member, Grant Review
Board
George Berry, Deputy Comptroller, Member, Grant
Review B bard
Johnny Johnson, Director ·of Model Cities
George Aldridge, City· Planner
Carl Paul, Deputy Director of Personnel
.J;ay Fountain, Senior Accountant
The Grant Review Board discussed with Mr. Johnson several major points of
concern, primarily procedures for approval by responsible City departments
ana agencies; administrative organization; and personnel requirements.
In view of th e complexities· of the Model Cities Program and the need for full
understanding by all responsible City officials, the following co.ncensus of the
Grant Review Board memb e rship is hereby presented:
·-·· - - ·. . -·
·- ·
-


The Model CitiE:s Program as established by the President and Congress of the


---trnited States is perhaps the most comprehensive and optimistic grant-in-aid
program ever offered to America's cities.
The concept and intent of the Model Cities Program is good. It provides for th e
legally responsible local governing authority to exercise its authority and
influence in demonstrating bold new techniques of urban planning and development .
It pro vid e s max imum opportunity for real involvement and participation by
citizens of neighborhoods in the planning and execution of programs w hich effect
their daily lives.
�Page Two
And .it promotes coordination among local, state and national agencies and
departments of the limited resources which are availabl~.
The successful planning and _execution of a Model Cities Program can be a
valuable experience for any city in its search for orderly and timely solutions
to its majtitude of urban problems.
Atlanta's City Demonstrafion Agen-cy has attempted to meet the challenge
and intent of the Model Cities legislation.
Citizens of all Si?( neighborhood areas encompassed by Atlanta's Model Cities
- Program were actively involved in orga nizing and pla nning for Mod e l Cities
more than a year in advance of the beginning of the City's formal planning stage.
Loc_al, state and federal public agencies and numerous private groups
participated in the preparation of the required planning grant application.
Th~ Mayor and Bo a rd of Aldermen endorsed and supported the pl a nning effort.
The Model Cities planning staff worked long and hard to prepare the documents
necessary for successful funding of the first year program.
The final docume nts d e t a il a bold and innova tive plan of attack on the m a jor
problem ar eas in the Mode l Citie s neighborhood. The Mode l Citie s s t a ff
has made an admirable attempt to live up to the concept of the Model Cities.
program. To a great extent they have met both the needs and wishes of the
citizens of the ar e a and the requirements of planning and administra tion of the
- City and fed e ral governme nt s .
The Mode l Citie s Program al s o places on all City d e partments and ag e ncie s
the requireme nt for cooperation, coordination a nd approval of program
_____ _ con::i-pone nts.
The r e are indic·ations tha t thi s r e quire m e nt h a s not b een m e t.
Whe re it h a s not done so, each department a n d age ncy is obliga t e d to r evi ew
and pa s s on the spe cific compone nt s of the pro g ram which assigns e xec ution
respons ibility to tha t d e p a rtm~ nt .
Each commit tee of the Board of A ld ermen shoul d review and approve/disapprove
each program component whi c h fa ll s within t he responsibil ity and a uthority of
the com mittee .
The Plann ing and De v e lo pment Committee s h o uld exerci se it s responsibility
for overall planning of t he city b y revi ewing t he Model Cities p l an and making
�_Page Three
the determination as to the compatibility of the Model Ci.ties Program
with overall city plans.
The Finance Committee should determine the financial feasibility of the
program aI?,d the capability of'the City to ·meett:he · requirements placed
__ u~on it by the program.
The full Board· of Aldermen should carefully consider the priorities involved
in the Model Cities execution, its impact on the area served and the en '..~ Te
city as well. ·
The Grant Review Board believes these approvals should be given befor,e
Aldermanic sanction is granted.
We feel that if the provisions of the Model Cities application are understood
and accepted before final approval is granted a much stronger program \\'ill
result.
It should be understood that this_ is not intend e d as criticism of the planning
grant document or the work of the Model Cities staff, but is an effort to gain
full understanding and support of the strongest progr a m in the best interest
of all citiz ens of Atlanta.
It is therefore recommended that the Mayor and Board of Aldermen require
written acceptance or denial of each compone nt of the Iv1odel Cities plan by
the departments and agencies responsible for the execution of each component
--· before Jina! approval of the grant application is given.

RESOLUTION EY
.S

Attached Memorandum

'! The attached memorandum received from the Washington Office

mainly with the method for using unspent and surplus Model

I
i
It is our projection that at the end of our present contract
year, May 31, 1970, we will have approximately $2,500,000.00
in unspent and unallocate_d funds. After examining all of t h e
various possibilities for the use of these funds, the staff !
has determined
that they should be used for one-time capita lI
,
expen d itures.
I
We are in the process of establishing a list of projects th~t
will me et this criteria and would like to submit it to the I
Board at an early date for consideration. In the meantime, :
if you have any ideas or suggestions that you feel should be
included on this list, please contact me at your earliest
convenience.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development would like an
indication from us about the use of these funds before
February 20.

Robert H. Baida, Deputy Assistant Secretary (MCGR)
SUBJECT





Establishing the Start of the Second Action Year
I.
Purpose.
T1:lis memorandum sets forth the procedure for establishing the star t
of the second action year for each first round Model City.
It
follows discussion at the July and October meetings of Assistant
Regional Administrators and response of ARA's in September to a
memorandum dated July 28, 1969, asking how Regional review loads
might be spaced out.
II. Considerations.
Among consider ati ons i n s etting t h e s tart o f s econd a ct ion years
are t he f ollowing ~
1.
Nece s s i ty of spac i ng review. l oads. If ever y fir st r ound city
had exactly a 12-month f i rst action year, abo~t one-half the first
round cities and perhaps one-half the second round cities would come
up for review at the same time.
2.
Effect on the cities. In some cities, it appears from results
so far, there is an advantage in entering the second action year
as soon as possible.
Continued planning efforts point to a better
second year program mix than the presently funded first year package.
Shift to the second year may give the city an opportunity to kill a
few doubtful programs before they start.
on the other hand, some
�-2-
other cities have started a lot of promising projects but have not
kept pace with their monitoring and evaluati on efforts.
A later
shift to second year prograrnrning--perhaps 15 or 16 mont~s after the
start of the firat year--may give evaluation a better chance to
impact the second year decisions.
3.
Adjustment to local calendars. Some cities will want to fit
their Model cities program year to the city fiscal year.
prefer not to do this.
Others may
Some cities may wish to avoid making program
decisions at the time of municipal elections.
There may be other
local reasons for preferring one renewal time over another.
4.
Effect on quality of review.
Because of changing conditions
in the cities--new leadership, a later start of projects, etc. - -ther e
may be some cities which the RICC and the HUD staff feel will be
e a sier to r eview at a later time than others .
5.
Funds a vai l able to the cities .
Obvious ly a cit y that is
r unn ing out of money mus t be reviewed pr omptly, or perhaps given a
f ew months' money t o finance a first year cont inuation until the
second year planning c an be rev iewed.
At tnis point, however , it
appears very doubtfu l that any first round cities are going to be
out of funds 12 months after their contract signing.
III.
carry-over of unspent funds.
An important factor of entering the second action year is the disposition of funds obligated to the city for the first action year
but not spent.
In various ways· we have promised the cities that
such funds may be carried over into succeeding years, providing the
city is performing well in the program. A city that may have started
�-3-
s L ;·;:·iy but has steadily increased prcgram momentum during the first
shou ld .?:".ot be punished in the second year.
y \-:;.·-'.z
Howeve2~ ., ·i:ib.e
national pn1:f,ose of the Model Cities Program may not I -& l1a l l ser'\;:.~d
by allocating a full second round target figure to cities whi t:~-:.
have shown little or no promise in getting good programs started
in the first year.
Even for good cities , there may be a problem in building up a
spending rate in the second year which cannot be maintained ·in the
third year.
For example :
City A has a first round target figure
of $4 million and a second round figure of the same.
During the
first year, while projects were starting up, it spent only $2 million .
With carry- over, it then has $6 million for the second year .
If the city's supplemental spending consists entirely of on-going
staff or other expenses , as compared to one-time capital expenses,
f or whi ch t here is no take-over sour ce in the thir d year , it c a nnot
establish a $6 million spending rate in the second year without
facing a l i kely cut of $2 million for the thir d year.
The tendency
o f all pro ject s to get more expensive without i ncreasing t h eir
scope (because of pay raises, more utilization of services and other
reasons ) heightens this risk.
Therefore, cities shall not be allowed to use their remaining
first round funds to increase their second year spending rate
except to the extent that:
1.
An amount equal to the first round carry-over is applied to
capital or other projects which, by their nature, will not require
renewal in the third year, or
2.
The city can demonstrate a commitment from other sources,
�i--4-
pr,;:;i erably local or State, to ca.rry out the excess on-goi.r•.g project:f£1
i r,, year tr.iree, or
3.
A combination of #1 and #2.
In cases where the city has carry-over but cannot meet the abov9
conditions for spending the carry-over in year two, either of ·cn e following steps may be taken :
A.
The city's first year may be stretched out to use all or
part of the carry-over.
This technique should be used
when a stretch-out is desirable for other reasons--in particular, when it will result in a better second year program,
or
Bo
The city may be renewed without stretch- out, but the allowable
second year spending level will be held to the second year
target figure without the carr y - over, or without that part
o f the carry- over not covered by paragraphs 1 to 3 immediately
above .
Exampl e :
City A, cited above, shows that $1 mi ll i on of
its projected second year programmi ng repre sents one-time
expenditure , either as capital projects or as projects
for which other funding i s secure for t h e third year.
It's
s pending guideline for the second year would be $5 mil~iono
The c ity would not b e permitt ed to carry f orward $1 million
of its f i rst year fund s o
Where a city , because of a ppl ication of t he above, i t not allowed
to add all or part of its carry-over to its second year spending
level, it should be indicated to the city that it may get the
remaining increase during the second year.if it can come up with
�-sone~,·cime projects as described above.
Ex~ple:
Half-way through
its second action year, City A :j.qentifies a new adult educa-t:ion
..
project for which State or local funds will be available in the
third year.
It may start this project .on supplemental funds in
advan.c e of its other funding.
Given these operating considerations and policies, we now
request that ARA's recommend a specific starting date ·for the second
action year of each first round city.
This date should be not less
than ten months nor more that 18 months after start of the first
action year.
It will be the central Office intention to follow the
AR.A's recommendations providing the total pattern of recommendations
is consistent with obligation and spending patterns.
If recommen-
dations have to be changed ·. to meet these considerations·, it is hoped
t'!lat the changes will a:ffect only a few cities.
Proposed changes
will be discussed with the ARA's, and time will be allowed to discuss them with the cities before final decision.

INTRODUCTION
AND
BACKGROUND
Section 10 (a) of _the Demonst~ation and Metropolitan Development
· Act of 1966 requires the Model Cities to provide "maximum opportunities for employing residents of the area in all phases of the
p rogram and enlarged opportunities for work and training," and to
develop programs which will result in "marked progress in reducing
u nderemployment and enforced idleness."
In a letter to City Demonstration agencies, the Department of
'
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has outlined specific requirement s for implementation of this provision.
The City o f Atlanta, as City Demonstration Agency (CDA) for
the Atlanta Mo del Cities Program, has been approved for a grant
o f more than seven million dollars for t he current program year.
The HUD employme nt requirements are applicable to the Atlanta CDA
and all other agenc ies participating in the Atlanta Model Citie s
Pr ogram.
At prese nt, there are thir ty-three ( 33 ) such agencies in
a dd i tion to the CDA.
Exi s t ing local pol icy on Model Cities e mp l oyme nt is conta ined
in a res oluti on approved by the Model Cit ies Executive Commit tee and
adopted by the Mayor and Boa r d of Al dermen of the City of Atlan ta.
While more lim ited in scope t han the HUD re qui rements, the resolution
provides that "a ffir mative action be taken to insure that residents
of the Model Neighborhood Area ar e given max imum opportunity for
training and employment, " and tha t
"The Mode l Cities Program and
�" -2 -
its contracting agencies be encouraged to develop compre he nsi ve
s y stems for progressivel y t raining a n d upgrading workers at all
levels .... "
The present need is for a c omprehensive employment program
wh ich will fulfill the HUD requirements, as well as those set
forth in the Executive Committee and Aldermanic resolutions.

STAFF COST AND ESTIMATE
As stated in the proposal, we propose to complete this project
within six months of its. inception.
This will require a greater
concentration of professional consultants than would be required
i f t h e t i me for completion could be extended.
We envision essential-
ly three (3) full-time personnel.
Our special billing rate for Federally funded programs is
$100 per d ay per man.
Your atte r, tion is invited to Section III,
"Work To Be Performed"
"
on pages 2, 3, 4, and 5 of our proposal.
You will observe that
ex tensive vi s itation in the 33 contracting a g encies will be mand a tory.
Fur t hermore, considerable time will be required in job evaluation
and t he wr iting o f job descriptions.
The developme nt of plans and
systems wil l requi r e s u ffi cient rese a rch in or der to acquire t he
s p ecific designs necess a ry to assure feasibility.
Our f ee f or the complete project will be $39,000.
This is a n
all- inclu sive q u ota t ion f o r pro ~essiona l con s ul ting a nd research time,
s ecretar i a l and other cle r ica l costs, d e sig n and re production of
for ms, questionnaires , e t c .
The fee does not i nclude t h e cost of
printing and art work, since t h e volume of such work will be determined by Model Ci tie s .
We render our bills monthly during an assignment.
We shall appreciate a n opportunity for further discussion of
this subject.

of Southern Railway:
1.

Land Use and Housing

Inconsistency with Major Planning Efforts
Conclusions
Areas of Concern
A.
Land Use
&
Housing
1.
Result. Industrial land use will increase
through the enlarged yard facilities while
residenti al and park acreage will decline.
2.
Effect. Under present plans the resulting
increase in heavy industrial activity threatens
the stability of the remaining residential
neighborhood. Residential property values will
decline since living close to a railro ad stor age
~
.
�-2yard is ~ndesirabte. With9ut proper pianning
there will be an increase in the structural
deterioration oi homes adjadent to the yard.
B.
Transportation
1.
Result. Railroad activity will increase above
existing levels and the proposed yard limits
will dead end various local streets.
2.
Effect .
(a) Dead-End Streets
The expansion, as proposed, will cut-off seven
streets in the Pittsburgh Neighborhood . These
streets and the number of structures which
will be located on the resulting dead-end
streets are ~
1) Windsor Street 0 structures
2 ) Garibaldi Street - 12 structures
3) Gardner Street
1 structure
4) Ira Street
4 structures
5) Rockwell Str eet 0 structures
6) Smith Str eet
16 str uctur es
7) Ber ckele S treet 6 st r uctures
-
-
-
39 str uctur es
On these same seven streets , a s pres ently e xisting , there are 1 1 s tructure s o n the dead-end
p o rtion s o f t h e streets .
I t will have to b e determined if a ny o f the
propose d dead-end s t reet s are of sufficient
length t o necessitate a turn around. If one
is needed 0 then additional properties may
have to b e acquired to provide the turn around.
The expansion of Southern Railway 0 as proposed 0
includes portions of several streets. To
�-3implement this plan, it will be necessary for
the City to abandon parts of these streets.
A public hearing will have to be held to
determine if these streets should be abandoned.
(b) McDanield Street Crossing
The principal connector between the Pittsburgh
and Mechanicsville Neighborhoods is McDaniel
Street . This street presently crosses the
Southern Railway tracks at-grade. When trains
are coming to or leaving the storage yards ,
McDaniel Street is often blocked for relatively
long periods of time .
To eliminate these long delays, a proposal has
been made to construct an underpass under
McDaniel Street. Total cost of this project as
estimated by Public Works Department is
$1 , 050,000o This does not include ri ght-of-way
damage or relocating water lines . To accomplish
this project , three or four tracks will have to
be killed during construction. This will be
difficult since increased train traffic past
McDaniel Street will occur if the existing
storage yard is expanded . No date for constr uc tion of this underpas s has been set . I f this
p r oject is not i mplemented , the incr eased t r ain
t r affic f r om the p r oposed storage yar d will
fu r ther i n c r ease the lon g delays at t he at - g r a d e
c r ossing.
( c ) Fortress Avenue Cr oss i n g
Fortress Avenue also conne c ts the P ittsburgh
and Mechanic s vill e Nei ghborhoodso Since this
s tre e t do e s not l e ad to any major streets and
since it crosses the Southern Railway tracks
at-grade, Fortress Avenue is not heavily used.
Also, trains are parked at times across
Fortress Avenue discouraging use of the str eet .
�-4-
The increased train traffic resulting from
expanded yard facilities will all but eliminate
the use of Fortress Avenue. There are no plans
at this time to improve Fortress Avenue.
c.
D.
Relocation
1.
Result. The proposed land acquisition will affect
about 100 families.
2.
Effect. These people must move without being paid
the allowances received by urban renewal displacees:
moving expenses and differential paymentso They
will not be eligible for temporary housing presently being provided by the Atlanta Hqusing Authority.
And their exodus will further contribute to the
city's current deficiency in standard housing units
for people of such low income. Consequently, the
forced movement of such a large number of people by
an agency with public responsibility does not reflect recent trends to finance and provide direct
housing assistance to such groups , nor does it
reflect t h e present trend of business to become
involved in the human problems it creates.
P ittman Park Acqui s ition
1.
Re sult. A portion of Pittman Par k mus t be a c qui r ed
f o r r a i l r oad use while adjacent r esident i al and
indus t r ial p r oper ty wi ll be acquir ed and add ed t o
t h e r emaining par k site . The gymn asium , swimming
po ol , and tenn is court s wil l have t o b e d emolished
a nd recon s truc t e d: f i nancing is b e ing provi d e d by
Southern Railway .
2.
Effe ct. Pittman P ark comes close st t o b e ing the
most ideal recre ation and p a rk facility in the
entire Atlc.nta system. It has b e en bless e d with
a fairly complete list of physical facilities, as
well as a real outstanding staff. Pittman Park
lies within what is referred to as a Neighborhood
Service Area Number 20 8 as defined by the A.tlanta
�-5Parks and Recreation 1983 Plan. Due to the fact
that the Parks Department does not wish to relocate
large numbers of people adjacent to the park, they
have abandoned any thought of having a full-fledged
community park in this neighborhood ~ A community
park consists of not less than twenty-five acres ·
and obviously many, many people would be dislocatedo
Thusf they have proposed to convert Pittman into an
"expanded neighborhood park" by adding about three
acres . The Planning Department has recommended that
they acquire the brickyard to bring up the acreage
total but their owp design staff opposes this
particular direction of expansion. The Park's
position, specifically, with Southern Railway System
is that , if the park must be bothered , there must be
ful l and rapid replacement of all facilities interfered with and these facilities must be bigg er and
better and more modern than the e x isting facilities.
Eqm, lly ·important, the project must not violate the
supe.;: ior philosophy of Model Cities.
E.
Inc~nsistency with Major Planning Efforts
1,
f esul~~ The expansion o f industrial uses in this
area ls not cons i stent with existing city p lans fo r
the area including the f ol l owing:
a. 1983 P a r ks and Recr eati o n Plan
b . NDP ?lan f o r Mo d el Cities
0-. 1983 Land Use Pla n f o r Atlanta
c1. Mo de l Cities Land Use P l an a nd Five Year
Comprehe nsive P lano
2.
Eff~. All city plans are interrelate d, some more
s o than others. Th e Pitt man Park s e rvice area and
plans for recre ation program e xpansion is contingent upon the preserva tion o f Pittsburgh as a
resiiential community. Business areas, schools.
park, and rehabilitation areas are proposed because
of tL~ relationship of these land uses to surrounding uses. The inclusion of an industrial use in
this ctea - without proper consideration and control will nullify the past years of work that the city
�-6-
has committed to this neighborhood - not to mention
the cost of this work and the involvement of
residents working to better their own environment.
For example , the Housing Authority's concern is to
determine whether or not the Southern Railway
expansion plans are consistent with the Neighborhood
Development Program plans prepared by each of the
six Model Cities neighborhood resident committees
and their planning consultants in conjunction with
the staff of the City Planning Department, the Model
Cities staff and the Atlanta Housing Authority .
Federal and local funds are being provided to carry
out these plans which are approved by the Mayor and
Board of Aldermen of the City of Atlanta and the
Federal Government. Contractural agreements preclud~
the City from taking any actions such as rezoning
or closing of streets which are contrary to the
plans approved by the City , the Federal Government
and the Housing Authority .
I II.
Alternative Considerations
On the basis of an analysis of proposed plans, two
major conclusions have been formulated.
A.
Selection of Another Site. The foregoing concerns
can be minimiz ed if the r a i lroad e xpanded nor th a nd
east - into the existing i ndustr ial area o f
Mecha nicsv i lle - instead o f south and west into a
p ark a n d establ i shed r e sidentia l n eighborhood . Th i s
dir ect ion will elimi nate a large , unsi ghtly a nd rat
infes ted junkyard a nd also r e l o c ate only a h a ndful
o f famili es as opposed to t h e 1 00 p r esent l y a ffected.
Bo
Involvement of Ra i l road with Age nci e s Re sponsible
for _Planning a The ut i lizing o f any site for Railroad
expansion can b e found only if the railroad and
city agencies develop a closer working relationship
than has e x isted to this pointo

MEMORANDUM
To:
Mayor-Elect Massell
From:
Dan Sweat
Subject:
Model Cities Program
This memorandum is provided for your general information so that you
will be aware of the administrative situation in i-egard to the Mod.el
Cities Program a it is now established.
Technically, the Model Citi s Program i8 a part of the Mayor's Office.
Its budget, I.or example, is und r the administration of the Mayor ,
although Mayor Allen has delegated the r spon ibility for approving
the disbursement of project funds to the Model Cities Dit ctor. This
organizational structur was established in accordance with the Mod 1
Cities Act th t r quir d the program to be a "Mayo:r ' s Program". Th
me act, howev :r, r quired broad citizen participation in the program.
In att mpting to r coricil this r quir :rnent with Atlanta's committ
system, it wa decided that the Executive Board of th program. would
b chaired by the Mayor and would have on it two Ald rmen in addition
to cltiz ns and oth r of£icial • It was furth r d cided that all re olution
arid official action r quired fortl:he program would come from the
E:gecutive Board to the appropriate Ald rmanic Committee but, becau e
th M yor and two member 0£ the Alderma:nic Board
re on the
Ex c:utive Board, the other Ald . :rm n would not have to be overly
concern d with th detail of th program and could act on th recomme:n•
dation of the Ex ·cuUv Board With confidence.
Thi
ituation has er ated som · problems in determining th M yor'
xactrrol in the administration of th program. Notwith tandin the
f d r l governm nt' poeition th t the pro :r m l8 th r pon ibUity of

participation requirement must be met. This brings up the question of
who can make administrative decisions; the Mayor, the Executive
Board, or the Board of Aldermen. At present, the Model Cities Director
feels that he is on the staff of the Mayor, but decisions concerning
bis program are officially made by the Executive Board. Further, the
Board of Aldermen should not normally question actions made by the
Executive Boa.r d if they are within the context of the approved program.
Even less clear and of some concern to me is the exact role that the
Mayor ' s Staff is to play in the Model Cities Program. The Director
has made it clear in the past that he feels that it is his position that he
answer Birectly to the. Executive Board and specially to the Chairman,
the Mayor. This is only important in that you understand and approve
this arrangement so thatyyou will not expect that the staff has any
responsibilities in this regard.
This is not a problem that requir s imm.ediate action. but it is one that
obviously needs some direction. Hopefully. this will provide you with
om information so that you can be prepared to deal with it after the
fir t of the ye r.

Dear Mr. Sweat,
I have been advised by Dr. Carl J. Tschappat of
Georgia State University that p·e rhaps you would be able
to aid me in the compiling of a survey as described
in the enclosed letter. Dr. Tschappat told me that
you are involved with Model Cities in Atlanta and that
perhaps you would have some ready information on the
subject I am interested in.
I am particularly interested in attitude surveys.
Although we are, specifically, interested in citizens'
attitudes and values regarding their communities any
related subject survey would serve our purposes at the
moment.
Any assistance which you would be able to give
would be very much appreciated.
Very truly yours,

Gentlemen:
The Regional Planning Commission of Cuyahoga County is
interested in the availability of any questionnaires or surveys
which you have employed to sample citizens' attitudes and values
regarding their community. We are interested in these surveys,
and the validity of the results obtained, for the work we are
doing.
As an agency involved in regional and city planning, we
are developing a citizen's attitude questionnaire based on the
following criteria, as established by the Ohio Department of
Development.
liA sample survey and study of citizens' attitudes
and values regarding the social, economic and
physical aspects of the community will be
undertaken. The sample taken will reflect,
insofar as possible, geographical location,
housing type, employment, income and minority
group differences, as enumerated by Census
Tract data."
Ohio Development Department.
In -order to obtain the best possible results in this area,
we are seeking your help to assemble the most valid survey.
If surveys or questionnaires, fitting this description, are on
file, would you send the survey, the validity or measure of
results, and the source of the survey? If all this information
is not available, we would still be interested in any help you
can offer. Do you have an idea as t o other organizations or
institutions we might contact for the information we are seeking?
The data may be mailed to the above address, in care of
myself. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Very truly yours,

Re:
Atlanta Youth Council-Model Cities Proposals
Dear Mayor Allen:
The Board of the Youth Council has requested that I wtite you to exp~ess its
concern over the Juvenile Delinquency Proposals for the Model C&ties area.
In early November, 1968, Model Cities' staff contacted the Youth Council and
requested that the Council submit proposals for special programs to be
undertaken in the Model Cities area.
You will remember that the Youth Council submitted 5 separate proposals a s a
part of the Mode l Cities program. These proposals are a s f ollows:
1.
Absenteeism Project
2.
Central Coordination Services for Model Cities Yout h
3.
Juvenil e Delinquency Prevention
4.
United Youth Outreach and the Model Cities Branch of the Atlant a
Youth Congress.
It is my underst anding t hat these pr oj ects wer e a part of the tota l programs submitted to and approved by HUD.
Last April, Jerry Luxemburger and J ohn Cox appeared before the Review Board
and as I understand , questi ons were raised concer ning t he Absenteeism Project, whereupon it was decide d that this particul ar project should be operated
by the Public Schools and the others were approved by the Review Board and
considered to "be all right".
It is my further understanding that Jerry Luxemburger met with Dan Sweat to
obtain your general position concerning the Youth Council projects, at which
time Jerry was informed that all these projects were approved by you except
the Absenteeism Project.
AN AGENCY OF THE CITY OF ATLANTA
�-2-
The most important proposal submitted was our Juvenile Delmnquency Program.
This as you remember, is the very purpose for which the Council was created.
You may not know that the Model Cities area, accounting for only a fraction
of the city's population of children (less than 4%) accounts for a substantial percentage (17%! of the city's juvenile delinquency.
The Youth Council Board has heard that the Juvenile Delinquency Program is
proposed to be deleted from the list of funded projects. We again request,
as we did last spring, a hearing with respect to this and our other programs be rescinded.
Very truly yours,

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Dan Sweat
FROM:
Clarence Greene
SUBJECT:
Model Cities, J. D. Newberry and Mrs. Annie B. Laird
DATE:
October 13, 1969
As instructed we met with J. D. Newberry concerning repairs
to the residence of Mrs. Laird at 662 Mayland Avenue, S. W.
Subsequently we met with Littlefield and Lynch from the Model
Cities office, Lynch the inspector on this case.
Allegations made by Newberry and Mrs. Laird in some instances
were correct and some incorrect. The application signed by
Mrs. Laird for a loan of $3100_,. 6,.bove the $3000 grant was at
the rate of 3% - not 8 1/2%. Mrs. Laird's statement that only
one contractor came to her house is probably true. Her statement is probably true she was told by the Housing Authority that
three bids were received and this particular contractor offered the
lowest bid. This will more or less being borne out from statements
made by Littlefield.
The followin g is procedure used by Model Cities' staff on the
rehabilitation of a property :
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Contact property owner
Inspection - discussion with owner
Prope rty owner invited t o office for financial discussion
Application for grant and/ or loan made
Contractor bids accepted and presented to owner
Contract let - repairs under supervision of the rehabilitation
staff .
Under #5, Littlefield stated he could on his own initiative place
a property for repair bids or he could as sign one contractor only
to a particular property . We do not unders t and his powe r here
howev e r , this i ,s what he states .
�-2-
Dan Sweat
October 13, 1969
From what we can ascertain the only form which is given a
property owner is a list of repairs necessary. A copy of this
document is attached and marked II l 11. Property owners are
asked to sign numerous papers a copy of which is apparently
not offered to them. Most of negotiations are of an oral nature.
Attached are forms marked 2, 3, 4, and 5 which, if were given
to the property owners, would fully inform them as to the nature
of the grants, etc.
The following should not be publicizied because if generally known
would work against the Model Cities Program.
A property owner cannot be required, according to Littlefield to
accept grants or loans nor to rehabilitate their property to
Model Cities standards. If they did not conform to the standards
they could only be required to have their property conform to
the minimum City Housing Code requirements.
In the case of Mrs. Laird, according to one of the supervisors
in the Housing Code Division, her property could be brought
into compliance for an estimated expenditure of $1200. It can
readily be seen she would be in a fGl:r better financial situation ,
even conside ring the higher interest rate she might pay for a
FHA home improvement loan, than she would b e unde r a 3% 20
year $3100 loan.

�GENERAL INFDRMATION OF REHABILITATION GRANTS AND DOANS
Many low-income property owners in an urban redevelopment project cannot
afford repairs and improvements necessary to bring their property up to the
required hausing standards. In order to assist these property owners, a
special program of loans and grants was -authorized as a result of the housing and Urban Redevelopment Act of 1965.
REHABILITATION GRANTS are direct grants to qualified. low.,.income owneroccupants located in an urban redevelopment aEea. These grants are for the
cost to repair and improve the property so that it conforms to property
standards in a Neighborhood Development Program. The maximum amount of the
grant is $3000. These are outsight grants, and do not need to be repaid.
No lien is placed on the property.
Eligibility for these grants require that the family income in most cases
must be under $3000. Any applicant whose income exceeds $3000 may be eligible
for a partial grant if the total housing expense is over 25% of the
applicant's monthly income.
REHABILITATION LOANS are direct loans at 3% interest, whfuch can extend over
a 20-year period made to qualified owners of property in a Neighborhood
Development Program Area. The property owner is eligible if he is an acceptable
risk, but unable to secure necessary funds from other sources upon companable
terms and conditions. In the case of homeowners, it is possible to refinance
loans presently on the property in addition using the loan to pay for the
rehabilitation costs. The loan may not exceed the estimated cost of necessary
repairs and improvements to bring the property up to the project standards. In
the case of investor-owned property, no funds are available to pay off any
present indebtedness on the property; the loan is limited to the actual cost of
the repairs and improvements.
THE PROCEDURE FOR SECURING A GRANT OR LOAN WOULD INCLUDE:
(1)
A survey of the property by the Rehabilitation Advisor who will
prepare a written report on the work that needs to be accomplished.
He will also develop a cost estimate.
(2)
Discussion of methods of financing improvements with the property
owner and assist in making an application for a loan or a grant.
(3)
Assist property owners in obtaining bids from contractors to
assure that work will be done at the lowest price .
(4)
Inspect the work as it is being accomplished.
(5)
Make certain that the contractor is paid only after all work has
been completed to the satisfaction of the owner and the project's
rehabilitation staff .
Rehabilitation staff members will be available at all times to assist and
counsel the property owner-- from the time of application through the closing
out of the grant or loan .
�TO THE HOMEOWNERS IN THE MODEL CITIES AREA:
In order to determine your eligability for a Grant of money to be used to repair
cll1d improve your home in an amount not exceeding $3000..00 or a Loan at a low
interest rate of
3%
it is necessary for our finance department to have the
fol.lowing information:
1.
Proof of ownership of the property which is usually a copy of the
warranty deed.
2.
Verification of income to determine your maximum eligability for a
Grant of Loan or a combination of both. This is usually in the form
of:
a.
b.
c.
letter from employer
written form indicating the amount of any income derived from
social security, welfare, disability, pensions, verification of
any rent .received and any other income received from any other
source.
The amount of any existing mortgage and the monthly payment on
same and the name of the mortgage holder.

Your cooperation in providing this information as soon as possible will enable
us to detemi ne what help we can render to you, add proceed to get work started
on your home as soon as pos s ible.
Yours very truly,

Director
Model Cities Program
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Johnny:
While I realize that we are both aware of the following facts,
I feel that it is important that they be pointed out and emphasized
at this time so that there will be no chance of a misunderstanding.
The federally approved . budget under which the Model Cities Project
is now operating is authorized only through January 31, 1969. While
we have noted in the press that the Model Cities execution grant
containing the 1969 administrative budget has been approved, there
has been no indication that the City will receive a binding connnitment from the federal government in time for the Budget Connnission
and Board of Aldermen to act on it at their next regular meeting
on January 20, 1969.
I am aware that your staff is now preparing a request for an extension of the present planning budget until such time · as a new
administrative budget can receive· official federal and city action.
Again, time is of the essence in receiving a federal connnitment for
---this extension. If it is not received in time for action on January
20, the nex t regular meeting of the Board is on February 3 which is
· after your current budget e xpires.
It is, therefore, ex tremely important that we receive some definite
cormnibnent from the federal agency prior to January 20, 1969. Please
call on me if there is anything that I can do to assist in obtaining
federal agency approval.
I would also like to advise that all of the staff positions that
have been authorized by the new administrative budget were cre a ted
�Model Cities Project Budget
January 13, 1969
Page 2
by action of the Finance Corrnnittee on January 6, 1969. These positions, however, were contingent upon federal funds being available
and therefore none of the positions can be filled until we receive
a specific federal corrnnitment to funding these positions.
Very truly yours,

TRANSPORTATION
ND P Action Areas
ADAIR PARK -- PITTSBURGH
1969 Clearance (a) Additional setback should be required for the widening of Stephens,
McDaniel, and Rockwell Streets, since these streets are classified as twolane collectors. Two- lane collectors, as referred to in th is analysis, are
60 foot right-of-way, with 40 foot pavement as set forth in the City of
Atlanta Revised Street Cross Sections.
(b) Berckele Street and Middle Street between McDaniel Street and Coleman
Street were constructed in approximate I y 1968, to relieve a drainage problem.
It is, therefore, desirable, if possible, to r:rointain th is street as part of the
"redevelopment plan.
1969 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems.
1970 Clearance - Additional setback should be re9uired for the widening of Rockweli
Street.
1970 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems.
Long.,-Range Plans
Adair Park
I.
Major Thoroughfares
(a) The existing city strret classification does not recognize Allene-Lowndes
Street as a collector.
(b) Allene-Lowndes Street sho-1 Id not be classified as a collector, since it
is one block east of Murphy Street, which is classified as a collector
and prov ides access to the same land .
(c) The relocation of the intersection of Allene Street and Lillian Avenue
�is desirable and eliminates a dangerous interse ction. The extension
of All e ne Street nortb of Lillia n Avenue provides only a slight increase in access to the area and would mainly serve the park, which
has adequa te access without the extension, i.e., we recommehd relocation of Allene Street from Pearce Street to Lillian Avenue, as
shown but not from Lillian to Lowndes.
2. Minor Streets - Preliminary review indicates all changes desirable.
Pittsburgh
I. Major Thoroughfares (a) If Rockwell and Fletcher Streets are improved to collector standards,
it will not be necessary for Mary or Arthur to be improved to these
standards.
(b) A grade-separation at McDaniel Street, and the railroad , is desirabl ~ and feasible as an underpass . This will affect adjacent land
use and needs additional study.
(c) Consideration shou Id be given to the widening of University on the
north if additional right of way is not availab le from post offi ce
site on south si_d e to provide for four lane arterial.
(d) Developing McDanie I Street and Hubbard Street into one-way pairs
between Gardner Street and Fletcher Street was mentioned by the
consultant and has some merit, particularly since it would allow
the two stree ts to take on collector status without cl e aring existing
comme rcial on McDanie l.
2 . Minor Streets (a) Bender and We lch Stree t a c cess to Shelton- Ste phens Stre e t sh ould
not be a !lowe d . The se stree ts should conne ct into Humphries Stree t ,
whic h prov ides access to She lton- Ste phe ns Street, or some o ther
solu tion .
(b) The stree ts east of McDan ie l Stree t and north of G a rdner Stree t
should be a ba ndone d , a nd pri va te access shou Id be prc·1ided to
the a d jacent high densi ty reside ntia l .
(c) If condition of struc tu re s warrant c le arance, Cohe n Street be twe en
We lch Street and Col eman Stree t , Middle Street between Beryl
Street and Humphries Street, and Hubbard Street between Roc kwe 11
�Street and Gardner Street should be abandoned. If these
streets are abandoned, it will allow for the accumulation of
larger parcels for proposed land use while adequate access
is maintained.
(d}
Access into University Avenue from the north should be
limited (close Welch, Sims, Ira , etc. )
and remaining
access should align with exits and entrances to the post
office.
(e)
West Avenue should not intersect with University Avenue due to
its position relative to the freeway ramps. Problem of industry
would need study.
(f}
The Fortress Avenue railroad crossing should be maintained and
signals shou Id be considered.
(g)
Traffic Engineering wou Id Iike the intersection of University Avenue
and Pryor Street improved on the northeast corner.
We are in agreement with the classification and treatment of streets in the above
areas unless commented upon.
The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs
additional study in relationship to the clearance or non-clearance of adjacent land.
�.

LAND USE
ADAIR PARK -- PITTSBURGH
1969 Clearance Area - The 50-foot buffer along Stephens Street is theoretically desirable.
However, this buffer will have to .be maintained (cleared of paper, grass cut,
leaves picked up, etc.) by the city, which is undesirable. When the land is
cleared and sold, controls shou Id be attached to the land to require buffers to
be provided by the developer. In developing this land, it must be remembered
that there is a serious flooding problem in the area which will have to be solved.
1969 Rehabilitation Area
(a) Preliminary plan indicates homes of Salvation Army block for rehabilitation;
land use is incorrect and shou Id be changed.
(b) The land adjacent to University Avenue between Welch Street and Stewart
Avenue is in a 1969 rehabilitation area. If 20 feet of right-of-way cannot
be obtained from the post office site on the south side additional land wili
be needed on the north. This decision on right-of-way should be made before
rehabilitation is begun.
1970 Clearance Area
The area southeGtst of University Avenue and Stewart Avenue is shown as commercial. This area should be examined to determine whether it can be cleared in
1970 and be redeveloped with prefabricated housing industry to provide employment and housing for the residents of Model Cities.
1970 Rehab ii itation Areas -
(a) Adair Park Rehabi Iitation - There appears to be no major problems.
(b) kea south of Arthur Street and east of Welch Street - The only problem
appears to be the proposed block park, as shown in the southern part of
the plan (between Coleman and Sims Streets). Because of the steep terrain on this site, it will be very difficult to build a park here . The hill
is too steep for a multi - use court . It is unreasonable for the Parks Department to assume maintenance.
�.. ' ~
.. . _..
(c} Area south of Gardner Street and west of Windsor Street - There appear
to be no major problems.
Future Uses
I. Adair Park Neighborhood
(a) Adair Park is now too smal I to meet the needs of the citizens of th is
neighborhood, or come up to neighborhood park standards. If land is
acquired near Adair Park, the park can be expanded and used by Adair
Park School. It has been stated that the residents are against acquiring
the homes on Catherine Street north of the park. However, recreation
facilities can best be provided at one large park of 12-acre standard instead
of two small parks, as proposed. It would be more beneficial to the entire
neighborhood if Adair Park could be expanded instead of acquiring land
north of Li 11 ian Avenue for another park. In one 12-acre neighborhood
park, a recreation building, athletic field, and other facilities can be
provided clnd maintained. Two smaller parks cannot effectively provide
these facilities nor a well-organized recreation program. It is proposed
that the cost of acquiring the necessary homes north of Catherine Street
for the expansion of Adair Park be determined. Also, the Recreation
Department shou Id be contacted to see if they can provide a recreation
program at two smaller parks. The auto wrecking yard should be cleared
in either case.
(b) · Proposed park north of Lillian Avenue and south of Gilette Street - (See
comment la). If Adair Park cannot be expanded, this proposed park should
be acquired. It should be 12 acres to meet neighborhood park standards.
This will mean expanding the park to Murphy Street. The boundaries of
this park would then be Murphy Street, Lillian Avenue, Tift Avenue, and
Gi lette Street. Th is park wou Id then be for active recreation programs
while Adair Park wou Id be used for more passive types of activities and
school sports. If the park is built, Allere Avenue should not extend through
the park.
(c) Fifty-foot buffer along various streets both in Adair Park and Pittsburgh
will be difficult to maintain . Such buffers, if determined to be desirable,
shoo Id be incorporated as covenants on the land and shou Id not be shown in
pub Iic use . If shown on plan describe as private open space.
2. PITTSBURGH NEIGHBORHOOD
(a) The block east of Sims Street and west of Hubba rd Street shou Id be high
�density instead of medium density. This would permit the block Rockwell Street, McDaniel Street, Gardner Street, and Sims Street - to
be redeveloped as one unit and Hubbard Street cou Id be abandoned.
(b)
Somewhere between Welch Street and Sims Street it may be desirable to
build a pedestrian walkway linking Gideons School with the high density
area.
(c) The brickyard southeast of Pittman Park should be abandoned but should
not be used for high density residential. This site should be expanded for
park use, as proposed in the 1983 Parks and Recreation Plan. The land
here is higher than the rest of the park, but it could be effectively developed.
The block west of Windsor Street between Arthur Street and Delevan Street
has been discussed for park expansion. However, the homes on this site
may be improved to meet the Housing Code requirements. Also, this site
is lower than Pittman Park, and Windsor Street shou Id not be closed.
(d) The block south of the brick yard should be retained as medium den~ity
residential since the area surrounding this block is medium density.
Access to the site is too poor to consider high density residential.
(e) The park proposed east of Smith Street and north of Roy Street is impossible
to develop because of the topography.·
(f) The play lot on Welch Street should, if possible, be expanded to a block
park.
(g) Before block parks are proposed throughout the neighborhood, sites should
be examined to see if the topography is flat enough for a park. The Parks
Department must have developable land and however desirable cannot
afford to maintain a lot of passive open space.
(h) If West Avenue is closed the industrial uses along this street should be purchased and the area redeveloped for medium density residential. If these
industrial uses continued their only access would be through the surrounding
res ida, t ia I areas.
�TRANSPORTATION
ND P Action Areas
MECHANICSVILLE
1969 Clearo.nee - Cooper Street between Richardson Street and Fulton Street should be
deleted. Formwalt Street and Windsor Street should be retained between
Richardson Street and Fulton Street. In future years, Formwalt Street and
Windsor Street should be deleted between Glenn Street and Georgia
Avenue. Cooper Street should be retained between Glenn Street and
Georgia Avenue.
1970 Clearance and Street Improvements -
(a) Discussion with the Atlanta Transit indicates that their property cannot be
included in 1970 Clearance. A relocation/marketability study of the transit
facility will have to be made first.
(b) That portion of the Pryor-Central two-way street under consideration for
1970 Action should be deleted pending a thorough study of the PryorCentral corridor.
Long-Range Plans
1.
Major Thoroughfares
(a)
McDan.ie I Street shou Id be continued into the Pittsburgh Area with a grade
separation at the rai Iroad.
(b) The combination of Pryor-Central into a two-way .street south of Fulton
Street best serves the neighborhood. The Traffic Engineering Department
believes the one-way pair should remain, as it serves stadium traffic. We
believe the problem needs additional study. The action should take place
only after the study is completed.
·
(c)
The relocation of the 1-75-85 ramps will have to be discussed with the
Highway Department.
(d) Windsor Street- Ormond Street south of Georgia Avenue and connecting to
Centra l Avenue shou Id be classified as a two-la ne collector.
�(e)
2.
Glenn Street between McDaniel Street and Ira Street
will have to be maintained to provide access to adjacent land.
Minor Streets
(a)
Since McDaniel Street is continued into the Pittsburgh Area, Stephens
Street should end with its connection to Smith Street.
(b) The relocation of Rawson Street, Eugenia Street, and Formwalt Street
north of Fulton Street is questionable on a cost-benefit basis.
(c)
Some local access streets should be maintained or built bet;...,een Central
Avenue and Pu 11 iam Street to maintain access to the adjacent land use.
(d)
Existing Adamson Street should be maintained but relocated between
Buena Vista Avenue and Ormond Street to align with existing Formwalt
Street. Th is street wou Id replace the proposed streets west of Adamson
and south of Ormond.
(e)
Access to Georgia Avenue between McDaniel and Windsor should be
limited.
(f)
Whitehall Terrace should remain open between Glenn Street and Crumley
Street to provide access to pub Iic housing.
The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs additional
study in relationship to the clearance or non-clearance of adjacent land.
�. LAND USE
MECHANICSVILLE
1969 Activity Areas - The .area south of Fulton Street and east of Windsor Street, which is
shown as neighborhood commercial, will be difficult to develop since it is only
200 feet wide. Since the need for housing is so great, commercial es tab I ishments
could be located on the first floor of the apartment bui ldings with residential units
on the other floors, thus eliminating the small commercial area.
1970 Activity Areas -
...
(a)
The relocation of the Atlanta transit garage (Brisbane Park) during 1970
wil I be impossible to achieve. A study wil I have to be ma~e to locate a
suitable site for the Transit Company and adequate time must be provided
for a new facility to be built. When this is done, the site should be
acquired for park purposes.
(b)
The block park east of Windsor Street and north of Bass Street is needed at
this time. However, after the park south of Bass Street is bui It, th is block
park will not be needed and should be phased out.

1970 Clearance - Al I clearance areas adjacent to major arterials and collectors
should provide sufficient setback for the improvement of these streets to city

It is not indicated if the streets on the Major Thoroughfare Plan without a zip

Long-Range · Plans
Maj or Thoroughfares
1.
Traffic Engineering prefers that Fraser Street be maintained between Georgia
Avenue and Bass Street. It is felt that this is necessary to the movement of
stadium traffic. If Fraser Street is maintained, Bass Street should be improved
in its present location instead of being relocated in a northeasterly direction.
2.
Why is Ormond Street east of Capitol Avenue terminated?
3.
Additional study is needed to determine the exact alignment of the relocation
of Martin Street at Little Street.
4.
The city street classification does not classify:
(a) Martin Street as a collector.
(b)
Fraser Street from Fulton to Georgia as a collector.
(c) Bass Street from Capitol to Fraser as a collector.
(d)
Haygood as a collector.
(e)
Little Street as a collector.
We concur in classifications proposed by consultants.

l.
Kenneth Street is scheduled for curbing this year. The consultant does
not classify this street, implying it may be abandoned.
2.
Ridge Avenue, between Weyman and Capitol should be terminated at Capitol
Avenue. The extension of Crew Street between Weyman and Capitol should
not be constructed.
3.
The realignment of Pulliam Street, Pope Street, and Washington Street north
of Weyman Avenue is not desirable.
4.
The Ridge Avenue intersection with Pryor Street realignment may not be
feasible due to the topography.
5.
Traffic Engineering would like Crew Street maintained between Georgia
Avenue and Bass Street (helps move stadium traffic??), but I question the
desi rabi Iity of the connection.
6.
The extension of Fraser Street south of Varina Street connecting to Dunning
Street is not desirable.
The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs additional
study in relationship to the clearance or non-clearance of adjacent land.

1970 Activity Areas
(a)
Activity areas appear acceptable except for the following item:
It has not been firmly resolved that the area slated for clearance west of

this school site and on the location of the adjacent park will be forthcoming shortly.
(b)
1970 clearance for school west of Martin Street sti II not firmly decided.
Future Uses
l. Boyton Street in Peoplestown is currently an unimproved, very narrow street.
If th is street is paved and widened to two lanes, it wi II be impossible to obtain
a buffer south of Boyton Street as shown on the map. Such a buffer could only
be obtained if the city condemned part of the land south of Boyton Street, which
is now used as a lumber yard.
2. West of Capitol Avenue and south of Haygood Avenue are several commercial
establishments. This area is shown as high density residential.
a more appropriate use wou Id be neighborhood commercial.
j
l
It appears that
3. The buffer north of Pope Street and south of the proposed road between Pope
Street and Pulliam Street will be difficult to maintain and is too small to provide
recreation facilities. Controls may be imposed when the land is redeveloped to
require proper shielding from t~e industrial areas. Other proposed buffers and
scenic malls or corridors are shown on the plan.
4 . Park adjacent to E. P. Johnson Elementary School does not meet neighborhood
standards.
l
5 . There is a large amount of neighborhood commercial shown just north and south
of Georgia Avenue . This shou Id be changed to general commercial.
6. If Ormond Street is continued east and west , the pa rk shown west of Fraser Street
wi ll be elim inated . Deletion of the park does not a ppear to be se ri ous be cause it
is so c lose to the park on Crew Street and the proposed pa rk a t Li ttle a nd Marti n

7. The proposed scenic corridor to the stadium and downtown starting at Love
and Crew Streets and extending along the right-of-way of Crew Street to
Georgia Avenue would eliminate all the trees along the street if a view of
the stadium and sky Iine is the desired effect.

8. The recently constructed Southside Comprehensive Health Center is located
at 1039 Ridge Avenue. The center offers preventive health services to all age
groups. This site is now shown on the map as industrial and should be public.
Carefu I consideration shou Id be made as to the type of uses to be located near
the center. It may be necessary to impose a buffer between the center and
other uses to insure the proper climate for the health center.
9. Land use immediately east and south of the stadium needs further study. It is
recommended that no plan changes be made in this area until a detailed study can
be accomplished and approved.

1970 Clearance - Clearance areas adjacent to arterials and collectors should
provide sufficient setback for the improvement of these streets to city
standards.
1970 Rehabi Iitation - Review shows no problems.
Long-Range Plans
Major Thoroughfares
l.
The separation of Sidney Street into one-way poi rs east of Cherokee
Avenue needs further study as to the exact location of the separation.
This arrangement might operate better if the separation was between
Cherokee and Oakland Avenue.
Minor Streets
l.
The extension of Kellman Street east of Eloise Street is not feasible
because of the topography. Eliminate so existing and proposed park can
be joined.
.
The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs
additional study in relationship to the clearance or non- clearance of adjacent
land.

LAND USE
GRANT PARK
The Sydney-Glenwood one-way pair poses land use problems for the north end
of Grant Park. It will be difficult to maintain the area between the one-way pairs as
desirable residential and pressure will be strong to turn the narrow strip between Glenwood
and the Freeway into commercial. All these factors will be detrimental to the neighborhood.
Careful study should be given to extending Fulton Street from Connally as a four-lane twoway collector immediately adiacent to the Freeway and connecting to Glenwood with a grade
separation at Boulevard.

Dear Les:
After reviewing your memorandum by Tom Eskew on the status of
NDP activities, I am concerned about the total number of properties acquired under option and purchase. The report indicates that 47 parcels are under option and 60 parcels have been
purchased for a total of 107 parcels.
The Model Cities Program assur e s a family that it will be provided with temporary or permanent relocatable housing before
they are required to sell their home.
Past experience has shown
us that when a family is contacted about the sale of their prop e rty they immediately b e gin to think of moving and often move
without r e c e iving the a s si s t a nc e t h e y are entitled to receive.
To this date, I have seen no visible evidence that adequate provisions are being made to provide the temporary housing assistance
promised the families in the Model Cities Area.
Therefore we must hereby r e que s t that all action to acquire prop e rt ie s c e ase until such time as a d equate provisions are made
to provide t e mporary or p e rma n e nt housing f or the families displaced .
We a lso request that a meeting be h e ld a t y our earliest convenience
to discuss procedures that will allow us to meet the statutory
requir e ments for relocation in the Model Cities Area.
Sincerely,
Johnny c. Johnson
