Dear Sir:
In a Model Cities Steering Committee meeting on July
31, 1969, a motion was carried to approve the Model
Neighborhood, Inc. economic development program, pending
written communications of information conveyed by a consultant at the meeting on the following two concerns;
(1) expansion of MNI Board and (2) MNI Directorship.
The following action was taken at a special Board
meeting on July 30, 1969 of Model Neighborhood Inc.
(1) MNI Board agreed to expand its Board to include
more members with the stipulation that they be
residents of the Model Cities area.
Although the Board agrees in principle that the
addition of professional businessmen on their
Board would benefit the corporation, it disagreed
with adding, specifically (5) "Black" businessmen
because of the racial overtones of such an action .
The Board also felt that sophisticated "out-side"
business interest ( on the Board) would not
enhance the basic concept of self- help . The Board
however , did agree that the Advisory Board would
meet monthly in o rder to review the program progress
and financial e x penditures . This action was agreed
�Mayor Ivan Allen

.


to by the Advisory Board.
At an earlier Board meeting, there was re-election
of officers. Mr. Joe Stallings was elected chairman and Rev. Joel Marshall vice-chairman. The
Board also ruled that no member of the staff
could hold a position on the Board. All staff
members have resigned from the Board.
(2) The Board hired Mr. Samuel Cochran as Executive
Director. Mr. Moody,to benefit the corporation,
agreed to work in a line position. He is to
receive a contract with specific duties as outlined in a scope of services.
The Model Cities Steering Committee voted to approve
MNI's program upon receiving the above information in
,
writing. The committee instructed MNI to forward this
information on to the Executive Board via letter for your
consideration.
