MEMORANDUM
To:

From:
Ray Fleming
R. EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant
MRS. ANN M. MOSES, Executive Secretary
DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison
The idea of management seminars for the concerned businessmen (or those
affected by relocation) in these areas is an important idea.
However, in light of the language of the people, I think it may be still too
"highbrow 11 • It needs to be thoroughly oriented to the average businessmen
in the area. It is folly to try to assume .t;:f,.:'i~! market potential or training
for most of these businesses. Seminar classes should focus on business
practice s such as bookkeeping and development of the neighborhood market.
I would also sta t e that b esid es s imple busine ss skills , the definite stressing
of awareness of agencies that can h e lp in the relocation and new facilities
expenses. These agencies, public or private, should be more than advice
givers . I believe that these businesses cannot survive the relocation move
if not given financial help for they are pretty close to marginal status now.
Concerning relocation -- relocation should be made as closely as possible
and retransition should be made as quickly as possible so that to preclude
the loss -of each business' narrow market.
AU center should also keep an ongoing, free advisory agency for helping these
people and Ehould encourage "rehabilitated" businessmen to help and contribute
with their views and opinions.
In summary, I think the project is useful for some redirection toward a
short term approach to keeping these exi sting small er busine sses alive.

Dear Mr. Sweat:
For some time, The Regional Economic Development and Busine ss
Service Cente r has been observing small firms ope rating in the
Mode l Citie s Area. Much atte ntion was dire cted toward ways a nd
means of how the Center could assist these small firms.
I would appr e ciate it very much if you would review very carefully
and critically t he e nclos e d state m e nt. If it is r e l e vant to Mode l
Citie s , the n we will d e v e lop more in d e pth. We b e lie v e it may h ave

Thanks for your attention.

ATLANTA - MODEL CITIES PROGRAM
The Regional Economic Development and Business Serwce.1Center
Atlanta University
The objective of this report is to provide Atlanta I s Model Cities
officials with a working tool to assist in the planning for Economic
Development activities in the Model Neighborhood Program Area.
Rather than wait until the Center's work on this subject is complete,
we have prepared a preliminary description of two ite ms : One is the
various problems and conditions affecting the lives of business people
in this area.
this area.
The other is the reactions of these business people in
To what they feel, rightly or wrongly, are the conditions
under which they live.
A full understanding and empathy with what
they face and what they feel is a prerequiste to improving current
socio-economic resource
and developing new ones.
It is also neces -
sary in order to plan effective for economic development in the area.
The style of thi
preliminary report, therefore, was deliberately
chosen to communicate this under tanding.
In order to facill t
the use of socio-economic information use in
other studies conducted by the Center at the same time , it was necessary to anticip te our final results.
analy i
This has been done through an
of all our vailable local data and where necessary, an inter ..
polation of thia data baaed on the results of re earch conducted elsewhere.
�z
The local data has been developed from three major sources.
First, we held nearly fifty individual interviews with businessmen
ope rating a business in the program area.
During these interviews,
the problems. attitudes, and reactions to exis ting services and conditions
were investigated.
The second source of data was developed
through using graduate students attached to the Center's staff who
spent a total of about sixteen (16) weeks primarily in the five different
neighborhoods (one or two blocks in size ).
Their work involved the
use of informal and unstructured interviewing techniques as well as
simply continous observation of day-to-day movements.
This se c orld
a p proach provided us with much more depth of understanding than
could be obtained through more typical survey techniques.
The third
source of data is the available local stitistics on income, employment,
family characteristics, health, and other factors.
Most of the local data that we have thus far collected is from the
program area.
This area of approximately 3, 000 acres containing
slightly less than 50, 000 residents is bound by the East Expre sway
on the north, the Central of Georgia Railroad on the west, Atlanta and
West Point Railroad on the south and east.
The six communities of
Grant Park, Summerhill, Mechanicsville, People town, Pittsburgh,
and Adair Park compose the target area .
Some of our investigations,
howeve r, have been conducted in other areas of Atlanta.
On the baeia
of thb comparative information, we feel that, while there are
�3
differences among different areas , most of the preliminary conclusions
in this report are applicable to other low income areas of Atlanta.
In the overall view of needs and assigning priorities to these needs,
it is immediately evident that these represent problems of substantial
magnitude for the marginal and sub-marginal businesses in the Model
Cities Area.
The provisions of the Model Cities Program, theoretically, created
an ideal situation for the small entrepreneur in a relocation situation.
At first glance, it would i\ppear that, by and large, these persons would
be anxious to relocate in modern, well planned facilities; as opposed to
the dilapidated, dingy and antiquated structures in which they presently
operate.
We have had an opportunity to converse with many of these businessmen, white and black, within the inner city, and the reaction has been
less than pleasant anticipation.
Many realize that their problem' is that of selective or captive
patronage.
This is coupled with the lack of managerial capacity to
appeal to a tot 1 market.
If they are required to move to a new location
then they will for all practical puJr.poses, lose their patronage.
Many further feel that if they are eventually moved back to th ir
present location , they feel that the financial requirement necessary to
acquire modern furnishings and fixtures would be prohibitive.
Mo t
�4
persons who have operated for some period of time are of the opinion
that they would not be able to be more than marginal operators.
The
reasons given are age, financial resources , and lack of academic
training .
Attention to a report submitted by a consultant for the
Regional Economic Development and Business Se rvice Center, indie
cates similar findings as a result of a study conducted in a similar
area.
At this point the Center recommends the assigning of top priority
in these cases and make the development of managerial training course
an integral part of the transition period.
It is felt that such a program
would contribute immensely to assisting these persons enhance their
managerial skills, as well as demonstrating the advantages of appealing to a total market.
Even con idering those who would return to present sites,
it
would do much in improving the ability to render service in his given
area.
This is presently lacking in most of the small, individual pro-
prietorhsips in the area.
This could be done through the Center conducting manage rial
eminara on campu
seminar
sit s and/or in the various communities.
could be conducted and attendance requirement made
of the reloc tion subsidy which the e persons would receive a
of the Model Cities relocation provisions.
The
part
a part
�5
These seminars would serve to assist in making many of these
persons aware of the various government programs available in easing
the adjustment of relocation.
The foregoing recommendation would consist of programming the
general managerial needs of these neighborhood enterprises.
This
would include choosing and improving sites , exposure to the various
marketing techniques useful to small business , raising of capital,
record-keeping and personnel management.
Program should be de-
signed to include the above items , but not limited thereto.
Coordination of such a program could be implemented by the Cen ...
ter.
Personnel could be selected from the School of Business of
Atlanta University, as well as the cooperating universities in the
Atl anta area.
This would make for a comprehensive program of
Economic Developme nt and Technical Assistance .
It should be empha ..
sized that these programs and seminars · would be geared to the level of
academic preparation brought to the seminar by these entrepreneurs of
the communities in question.
This would be in oppostition to many pro-
grams heretofore developed which would not lend themselves to meaningful participation by such persons due to limited academic or
comm rcial preparation.
It would be further recommended that the Center would use contact
resources to encourage on-going industries to locat
in these
reas.
would be well to empha ize that such indu tries would initially install
lt
�6
their own management personne l with efforts made to train and promote
local personnel to these position in phases .
The Center could initiate progra ms which would fa cilit ate the u p -.
grading of t he l ocal pers onnel in the direction of fi r st ...line management .
There could be further efforts , e nga ging t he s ou r c es of the C ent er, to
seek out and determi ne the feasi bilit y of the expansi on a n d / or c r e a t i on
of service industry enterprises t hat indicate a p o ssibility of succes s
operat ing or based in these a r eas , but again, not limit ed to the respe ctive communities .
There is an imme d iate need for the foregoing provisions .
There
could be immense benefits derived fr om such an undertaking , and i t is
felt that from these a meaningful program of Economic Development
could be designed for these communit ies wit h long - term implications .

REPORT OF THE MASS CONVENTION STEERING COMMITTEE
In the absence of Deacon Peters, the Chairman asked other members of
the Steering Committee if they wanted ta:,make a report. Mr. Whi tiey
then stated that he wanted to call t o the a t tention of the Board that
there is a lot of unrest in the Steering Committee and that he thinks
it would be a good idea for the Review Committee to review all the
action taken by the Steering committee. Mr. Hood explained that
some discrepancies have occured in the Steering Committee and attributed these discrepancies to the failure of the Steering Committee
to hire an Executive Director of Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc.,
to take care of some of the duties that Deacon Peters has had to
perform as chairman of the Steering Committee. He said that as soon
�~
as an Executive Director is . hired, the business of the Steering
Committee and the Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc., will run
smoothly. Tbe Mayor then said that the did not think _i t will be
necessary to do any checking into the Steering Committee at this
time.
Mr. Newberry pointed out that some of the S~~ering Committee mem-
bers think that the Steering Committee should see and check all
contracts before the Executive Board passes on them.
Mr. Millican
stated that the Steering Committee could recieve a list of contracts passed , but that they should not be~given a copy of the
actual contracts. Mr. Johnson pointed out that all membe~s of the
Steering Committee had received a copy of the Project Descriptions
and that this information should be filtered down. Mr. Hood agreed
that the Steering Committee should go through the .~ oject Descriptions and raise any questions thatt they might have as a result of
the review in their meeti~gs.

Dear Mayor Allen: ·
We, the members of a special committee of the Executive Board of the
Model Cities Program, in an attempt to satisfactorily resolve the Model
Neighborhood, Incorporated contract, wish to make the followin g report:
The committee met on Tuesday, August 11, 1969, innnediately following the
meeting of the Executive Board. We reviewed the correspondence between
Model Neighborhood, Incorporated and your office. We concluded that
two areas of concern in regard to the proposed contract are:
1.
Adequate staffing, and
2.
A Board of Directors of Model Ne i ghborhood Incorporated
that is fully capable of exe cutin g the contract successfully.
We believe, a letter to you dated August 5 , 1969, from Mr. Joe Stalling,
Chairman of the Board of Model Neighb orhood, Incorporated, proposes a
staffing pattern which can assure the satisfactory administration of the
contract.
In regard to strengthening the Board of Directors of Model Neighborhood,
Incorporated, your special committee met with that Board in session on
Tuesday afternoon, August 11, 1969. During this meeting, the following
persons were approved as additional Board Members pending acceptance:
Mr. Herman Russe ll, Mr. James Johns on, Mr. Ira Jackson , Rev. D. D. Dunbar
and Mr. Samuel Mills . As signments were made to contact these persons t o
secure their agreement to serve. I h ave reques ted the Chairman of the
Board of Model Cities, Incorporated to furnish the special connnittee the
reconstituted list of members of the Board of Dire ctors as soon as it is
feasible.
the basis of these developments, the special committee is requesting
tha t the Executive Board of Model Cities, Incorporated be reconvened on
