Dear Johnny:
This note follows our phone conversation of Monday, August
12th in which I suggested that the Model Neighborhood Program a pp ropriate $6,000 to Model Neighborhood, Inc. and
withhold $6,000 for Model Neighborhood, Inc. and o ther con tingencies.
I recommend that the $6,000 appropriation be made at the
earliest possible date so that Model Neighborhood, Inc. may
continue to tie up the land while finding tenants for the
shopping center.
Our conversations with Scott Rutherford of EDA have led us
to the following points:
1.
If the city provides Model Neighborhood, Inc.
(MN I) with an appropriation, such action will
indicate to EDA that . the City approves of what
MNI is attempting to do and how they are doing
it;
2.
The appropriation would then allow EDA to deal
direct ly with MNI for additional and future
funding;
3.
Such additional or f uture funding from EDA would
allow MNI to
.1
hire a full-time pl a nner to get
on wi t h the work of finding .tenants and allocating space and

costs;
.2
provide a sense of organization
to MN I;
.3
and allow for future program and/or
project planning.
Braun Cleveland of Eric Hill Associates and I plan to put toge t her a formal app lication to EDA in the near future.
The
application would incorp orate the Model Neighborhood Program's
appropriation into MN I's overall program.
Your immediate attention to this matter would be gratefully
appreciated.
With best wishes,
Yours truly,
