In view of difficulties encountered in zoning -and getting other approvals on s ites 9roposed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that the

September 12, 1967
The Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committee met at 10: 00 a.m.,
September 12, 1967, in Conn'littee Room t12, City Hall. The following members
were present:
Mr. Cecil A. Alexander, Chairman, Housing Resources Committee
Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Co-Chairman, Housin~ Resow-ccs Committee
Mr. Archer D. Smith, representing Mr. Charles L. Weltner, Acting Chairman,
Legal Panel
Mr. Henry L. P.ills, representing Mr. Lee Burge, Chairman, Finance and

Mr. Charles F, Palmer, representing Mr. Clarence D; Cole.man, Chairman,

Mr. J. A. Alston, member, Land Acquisition Panel
Mr. Stewart Wight, member, Land Acquisition Panel
.fkan William s. Jackson, Chairman, Social Problems Panel
Mr. Edward S. Simon, Vice-Chairman, Business Participation Panel
Mr. Dale Clark, Chairman, Public Information Panel
Mr. Malcolm D. Jones, Director
Also present at the meeting were:
Mr. William S. Holland, Executive Director, CACUR
· Mr.· Lester A. Persells, Associate Executive Director, Housing Authority
Mr. Alexander opened the meeting with comments pertaining to the program and
then called on Mr . Jones to present the current status report of the program.
Mr. Jones stated that his office was in the process of retyping the low•
income housing inventory report but had only the summary ready for this meeting
(Item 2 on the agenda and document 2 in the folder which had been presented
to Executive Group members). He explained that included in the inventory
are apartment units bei~ developed under conventional financing which tlo not
cost more than $10,000 per unit to construct, $12,000 for each side of a du)lex
and $1S,OOO for a single family house. He eA-plainecl that the last page of the
summary contains notes, s:, me of which are especially significant. He explained
that Item A of the notes gives a comparison of the status of the program on
August 31, as compared with the previous report of June 28 and stated that on
the whole we hnve lost ground in this program since the previous report two
months ago.
�2
He then called attention to the extract from the CIP report pertaining
to low-income housing requirements (Item 3 on the agenda and in the folder).
He also pointed out t hat we are not really building low-cost housing in public
housing but low-income housing .
He also explained Item 4(a) on the a genda and the correspondin:; document
in the folder passed out to Committee members, pertaining to available land
suitably zoned for the low-income housing program.
At this point Mr. Alexander explained that Mr. Jones' office was understaff ed to handle the statistical data required by the CIP and proposed that
f rom here on out when someone GOes to the Building Department for a permit
we should try to r,et the Per1ut Desk to list what the rent on the units will
be and number of bedrooms per unit; th2.t ther e is no way we can require this
legally; and that another thing that we need to clo is to also go back to the
developers now in_ the program and get more specific information on their plans.
He proposed for this purpose that the City provide a Clerk to the Committee
f or not less than 3 months. He stated that he felt the structures beins built
are reasonably r;ood and that his fe elin::s ar e that a gr eat deal more int eres t
should be put in the lowest r ental-purchase ran~es ; that we can get more in
that price r ange f rom the prefabricat ed housing; th2.t the carrying charges on
these per month i s important and we should find out what it is; that to meet
the r eally tough part of the program m6ans going to the City for additional
hel p . He als o asked for comments f rom members of the Coilll'ilittee.
Mr . Clnrk s ai d he would sup~'.)ort a s k in,~ f or more help; that he als o s aw
a news repor t f or housing t hat woul d r ent f or $50 t o ~>70 per month, under the
Farmers Associa tion program; t hat i t i s in DeKalb County , and is called City
Line .
Mr . Alexander stated that is a good start to ~et low.cost housing in the
counties .
Another member stat ed that the Farmers Association pro,::ram is als o a
part of the FHA program.
~.lr .
PaJ.mcr inquired as to the def init ion of low-cost hous ing, .
Mr. Jone s replied that it i s essentially a matter of interpr et a t i on ,
Mr. Alexander st ated tha t is was from $0 to ~55 per mont h .
Mr. Palmer cormnent ed "And t hey want l ow- i ncome housi ne built under privat e
enterprise?"
Mr. Alexander replied it is thought of now primarily as a Turnkey
development.
Mr. Jones added 11 And even Rent Supplement".
�3
Mr. Alexander again pro_p osed askin(~ the City f or a Clerk and developing
a form for the- Building Department to get fille d out at the time permits are
obtained and. ctated that we will have to talk to Mr. Wofford about that.
A motion was made that the matter be lef t in Mr. Jones' hands , Y.tr. Yates
seconded it.- The matter was dropqed there.
Mr, Alexander then explained that the roll of this Committee in zoning
matters is not an open and shut case as to how to make reconnnendations to
the Boo.rd of Aldermen; that we have been taking this on as n extracurricular
roll to a 1,sist the developers in this progrrun; t hat this has been done i n
several instances, but no members of this Committee have been asked to co
around looking at these s ites to r e commend. thos e which we cons ider reasonable.
Mr. Jones explained. that this is what he and Mr. Gates have been atteml)ting
to do; that they have been out with the s-,:)Onsors and actually looked at most
of tho sites anc.t have only listed and. encouraged thos e which they felt were
pr actical and desirable, t hat in a several ins tances they have di scourai cd
sponsors f rom submittin0 s ites which they f elt were impr~cticable or unsuitable .
Hr. Alexander continued t hat hie feel :LnG i s that we s hould t ry t o ai d and
assist the builder s i n this progr am but that we hnve no p or"'7er t o cha116 e what
is going on and that we a.r e hnvin:~ our pr o )Osal s turned down one by one f or
various reasons. He stated that the approach which he felt we s hould t ake i s
to issue a general s t at ement about t he housing progr am, i t s needs, and the
shor t a~e of land. that is now suitabl y zoneG and t o work towar d gettin;-~ a
rezoning of the ent ire City, with due consideration f or l ow-i n come housing
needs; that as for working with t he developers we should be governed by what
wo sec is a cceptabl e t o the Board of Aldermen and t ho Building De~art ment i n
granting permits; and fur ther t o come to some conclusion about the problems.
He stated that we should also hel p the developers arrange meetings with the
Aldermen, Departments involved and anyone who want s to talk to them about
deficiencies in Community Facil ities relat ed t o t he housing program, which in
some instances have been lcgimat c , such as parks , transportation, traffic,
schools etc. He further stated that at t he same time the ur 6ency of this
program has seemed to es cape some ;)eople; that one thing which we also need is
to emphasize the requirement for additional low-income housing in the neighboring
cities and counties and make it clear that we are not trying to creat e a haven
here in Atlanta for the whol e country to come to and move in on t his program;
tha t this may happen, but we should try t o avoi,1. it. He stated that the CIP
requirement is for repl acement of houses and apartments that are unfit for
human habitation. He then called upon Mr. Jones for comments.
Mr. Jones stated he feels t hat it we do not take a position to actively
sup::iort the c:'.evelopers who have proposedgood projects and which apIJear~ reasonable,
he di d not know who would; that he was personally inclined to fe el that we can do
a service if we 'as'"a Committee take a ')Osition on such proj ects; that he docs not
think however t hat mnny are;is will be built in the City which already have
a surplus of community facilities; that he has hopec. that we can sup;)ly
facilities such as parks, schools, playgrounds etc. simultaneous with the development
of the housing pr oj ects, by r elying on other Agencies and other Department s ;
�4
that those deta.ils should be checked into carefully and coordination made to
provide these services as adequately as we ca1i . · He said th2.t he felt personally
that a statement from the Housing itesources Cammi ttee on each of the proj ects
proposed f or low-income housing would be helpful to the Planning Boa:.· d and. the
Zoning Committee when they make their decisions. He pointed out difficulties
which we have had in gettine sites approved up to that point and ffi~)lainecl
that he and Hr. Gates (the Committee Consultant) have attempted to look at
each proposed site but have been unable to follow through on all details such
a s checking on the adequacy of community facilities etc.; that in several
instances he and Mr. Gates have discourni~ed s ponsors for this reason or that;
such as ground too rough, facilities not availabl e etc. and that as a result,
sever al of the sites originally propos ed have nev8r come up for rezoning. · He
further stated that he was inclined to feel that on those prooosals for Turnkey
development that it would ev2n be W:?11 for the Planning Board and the Zoning
Committee to know whether or not the Housing Authority considered the sites
as favor able and suitabl e .
One member commented that perhaps the whole City needs to be rezoned.
Mr. Alexander replied it seemed to him that we must create additional
land through purchases for the city - wide avproa ch; that when the indivi dual
developer canes along, there s hould be a body looking to the interest of the
whole city and it ap;)eared to him that these things have thus far been
consider ed only by the Board of Aldermen; that he wonders whether t his is
doing the program the best service? He stat ed that consulting with the
Planning Board is als o v cr.J much in order, presumably .
In r eferring to Item 4(a) on the agenda and the corresponding marked
doc1.ll7lent in the fol der, Dr . Hender s on inquired i f this material i s wha t his
Committee had asked for ?


tvlr. Jones s t ated that this is Phat the Planning Department pr ovided i n


response to hi s panel' s request; th.it when i.e got it, it came in t wo f orms:
a zoni ng map of the Cit~, wi th vacant lancl ar eas super impos ed on it i n orange;
and a re,ort of total l and in tho various zoni ng cat aeories and vacant l and
by Land Lot and Dis t ri ct.
Mr . Jones f urther expl ained t hat t he Planning fupart ment i s now maki ng
a comprehensive Land-Use s tudy to go before the Board of Aldermen with come
propos ed changes in t he overall land-use of the Cit y; t hat he fel t the best
thin:; t his Cammi ttee coul d do now is to 1.:;ct its r 0, commendat i ons presented t o
the Planning and Development Commit tee; that we have a Joi nt Meeting scheduled
for the 29th of September.
Mr. Alexander then told Dr . Henderson that hes hould meet with Mr. Jones
to go over the material provided by the Planning Department, but that in trying
to resolve this thing we are still short on land and t hose two should cane
up with a proposal, say in September, as to the number of acres needed and its
distribution.
Dr. Henderson asked approximately how many acres does that involve?
�5
Mr. Jones replied that the maximwn ci.ensity authorized for garden type
,:·.partments is 16 units per acre, but that the Housing Authority has been tr,fing
to hold that down to about 12 units per acre.
Mr. Pcrsells stated that was corre ct; that 3, h, and 5 bedroom units, which
the Hous ing Author ity particularly needs, r esults in r eduction of the density
tclow 16 units per a cre.
Mr. Jones explained we had one proj ect which has been approved by FHA at
16 units per acre , but it is in nn Urban Renewal project; that we had a developer
recently drop a project bec~use he had bought the land expecting to develope it
at the maxinum authorized dens ity of 16 units per a cre and that i n preliminary
discussions, FHA suggested 10 units per acre.
Mr. Alexander s t ated that it is open to debat e about how many total acres
would be required.; -that our experience to dat e indi cates that no more than
1/3 of t he l and appropriately zoned actually gets into the low-income housing
program, due to turnd.mms by HUD, FHA, nei ghborhoods etc. ; that to date only
about 1/3 of the land zoned has found its way into this program.


Mr. Alexander stated that there ap) ears to be a need to rezone the City


at large ; that there wer e 51 zoning petitions on the agenda recently for one


';.ec':-i ng of the Planning Board.


V.tr . Jones expl ained that the current z anin5 wa s especially planned for
indus try; that many areas wer e orieinall y pl anned but never us ed as industrial,
1-,:-D.ch development will not occur in the f orsceable futur e , and that the same
applies to much of t he land now zoned r esidential ( s ingl e fam ily development)
whereas t ho immediat e need of the City now i s f or low-income multi-family
housing.
Mr. Persell s expl ained that the Housing Author i ty has gone ba ck over the
lan<l to cons ~.der additi onal parcel s which could be used f or the low-income housing
c~tegoriJ where ch,u1gcs seem to be reasonabl e .













Mr. Alexander stated the builders have claimed that FHA procedures were
holdinG them up; that Atlanta i s one of the City ' s in which FHA now claims that
it can process an applicat ion in l ess t han 2 weeks; that this is a change in
attitude, but the 221 d ( 3) pr ogram does not come within the direct line of
FHA 1 s principal insuring policy .
Mr. Alexander asked Mr. Clark if the report prepared by Mr. Gates on the
accelernted procedure for multi-family processing by FHA could be carried to
the press (Item 6 on the agenda., ·w ith co-: >i es in the folders) Mr. Clark indicated
that it would probably be better for this type of announcement to be made by
the local FHA office rather than f rom this Committee.
�6
Mr. Alexander then referred to Item 7 on the agenda pertaining to the
proposal in the fl.ent Supplement program to require nonprofit sponsors to put
up 5%equity (in effect a donation); that the reason the attempt to put this
thing in, is the theOI'iJ that if nonprofit sponsors 2re financially inm lved
in the success of their project that they will hD.ve more permanent interest
in it; that Urban AmGrica's feeling is, if this is done the Rent Supplement
program will die before it gets an opportunity to grow; and Urban America has
suGgested that those interested send telegrams to their Senators and to
Senator Warren Magnuson sugGesting tlkct this approach of re~uiring the 5%
equity will defeat the purpose of the program; that what he would like to do
is to eet an authorization from the Committee to sign a t 8l egram in support of
this position and to urge cons idercJ.tion of this matter in the final preparation
of the bill.
A motion was made by Mr .. Palmer, s econded and unanimously c1.dopt ed asking
Mr. Alexander to sen<.J. such telogrruns to appropriate Sen<'..tors. ·
Mr. Clark asked if the .5%o.onation i s a known step or a new development.
Mr. Alexander s t at ed that it i s
nonprofit, spons or i s not sup-: iosed to
and it is asking too much of him to
Mr. Alexancler also s aid that to gi ve
nonprof it proj e cts one can borrow up
is what you are compe ting with, in a
new; that t he thinking i s tha t t he
be gct t in~ any prof it back f rom t he proj e c.t
put up 5%equity ~onation to the proj e ct. ·
the other si d.P. of it is, that in 221 d (3)
to a 102% of the proj ect coat and this
sense .
Mr . Per s ells asked Mr •. Alexander to expl ain t he 102~Z•.
Mr . Alexander explained what the extra 2'1, t akes care of •.
~-





Mr . Alexander again asked for and recei ved unanimous consent to r eques t
the City for a Cl.er k f or a t l eas t 3 months .
Mr . Alexander then called f or br i ef repor t s from the Panel Chairmen. Legal Panel - Mr. Archer Smith made a ver y int er es t ine pr e sent ation of
his case s tudy and t he s i gnificance of the Shaffer vs . City of Atlant a Housing
Code Case , whi ch he announced was corning up f or hearing the next day.
Constr ucti on and Design Panel - As no one was pr esent to r epr esent t his
pnnel, Mr. Alexa..11der ex.pl ained a proj e ct which tha t panel was working on
i nvolving Bui l ding Codes and a Syst em s tudy. ,
Finance and Nonprofi t Funds Panel - Mr. Alexander expl ai ned t h8.t t his
panel is working on creat ion of a Nonprofit Housing Development Corporation • .
He als o menti oned the f avorable comments made at the Urban America Seminar
by n local banker pertaining to loans made t hrough his bank to sponsors of
nonprof it proj ects.
�7
Business Participation Panel - r1r. Alexander commented briefly on his
recent conference in Washington with Secretary Weaver and FHA Administrator,
Brownstein, pertaining to bringing "Big Business" into the low-income housing
field.
Public Information Panel - Mr. Clark commented on the ill-fated Browntmm
Road rezoning at tempt and to a nonprof it sponsor project which is being promoted
locally by the Interfaith Group of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
Social Problems Panel - fuan Jacksor.. explained that the avera2;e annunl
income for Negroes in Atlanta is $3600 and that the number one question is the
adequacy of the number of bedrooms in rental units.
Mr. Alexander then called on Mr. David T. Edwards, sponsor of a rezoning
petition f or an 18 acre site on the West side of Atlanta , i'Jorth of Bakers
Ferry Road, s. W. (-IJ, 2h, 14th Dist. FF) to present his proposal ( one of three
in Item 5 on the agenda). ¥1r. Edwards made a good and convincing presentation.
From questions a sked md comments made by some member s of the Committee , the
Committee appeared receptive to Mr. Edwards' proposal. Formal action by the
Committee however was not called for by the Chairman to endorse this proj ect
to the Zoning Committe e , as had previously been re quc oted by Mr. Edwards,
as well as similar requests from sponsors of two other projects which the Committe e
had previously endorsed to the Planning Board. This was for r easons explained
earlier in the me eting. Subsequently however, the Chairman of the Planning
Boclrd was reque s t ed to pass on to the Zoning Connnittee , with the Plnnning
Boards' recommendations, a letter which had previously been written by the
Commi ttee to the Planning Board endorsing those t wo proj ects.
The mee ting was adjorned at 12 noon.

YJ.r. Alexander then introduced Mr. William R. Hirshson, Executive .Ji.rector,
Greater Hartford t{ousin·; .:Jevelopment . "und
.
Inc. Nr. Hirshson was the guest
speaker and presented a very interestin::i; i ~9rom1Jtu report on his experiences
in the f orm.;.t ion 0-Ucl operation of Hartford I s i\Jon-profi t Hous ing Development
Corp. The follo1-ri.n1 is some of what Hr. T:firshson ha.d to say :
0
General
Hartford consists of 18 square miles , has a population of 160,000 and
needs 6, 000 low-income dwellinG uni ts, of which 5,000 are now substandard.•
There are only 90-10( acres of vacant land in the city and few l arge housing
developments, but many of 16-32 units.
The Great er Hartford area consists of 29 separate municipalities or
communities of which only f our have approved Workable Pro[;rams.
The corporation has developed a pre-processed reusuable package for
assistance and guidan ce of developers. This p:1ckar:;e has basic designs for
two and three !)edroJm units. ~2,00(' to $3,000 per project is usually
sufficient to test proposed. project's practibility .
The corporation has not gone deepl y into rehabilitation . It has thus
far rehabilitated two units under 221 d (3) and purchased 12 group units.
221 (h) has not been popular because cannot find suitable areas in which to
work.
The Greater Hartford Housin~ Develo~ment Fund, Inc. is snonsored by the
Hartford Chamber of Commerce. Funds to finance the corporation were obtained
from 26 of the major firms in the 2.rea in the sum of $1,SOO,OOO ( $700,000
in cash and the balance in coillil1i tmenta. ) These funcls were obtained throu.-,;h
personal solicitation as loans .from life insurnncE' companies, banks and major
industries.
The corporation is nonprofit, organized to lend seed money on a revolvinG
basis and to provide technical skill on a consulting basic to s ponsors of
rental units for low- income families. Efforts however are not limited to
nonprofit organizr,tions o
�3
Speci£~
After the corporation was organized arrangements were made to borrow
on a maximum line of credit of $700 ,000, secured. by 10 year notes, with
interest up to 6 percent, payable asavailable. Only $350,000 of this amount
has been actually dra~m to date, In lieu of interest, surplus is returned
to lenders, as funds are accwnulated as authorized by the d:i.rectors., in
lUiilp sum amounts.

Report on Vaca.~t Land in Atlanta
The attached report (Encl. 1) has been provided by t he Planning Departffient
upon request of HRC (July 6 Executive Group Meeting) for total aceragc zoned
Apartments, Commercial, Industrial and Residential.
(Tabulation of vaca..!t acerages
by Land Lot and .District which accompanied the report has not been reproduced.)
Totals for each of the above zoning categories have been tabulated in
pencil on first page of the r eport to facilitate overall comparison.
The report shows t he amount of va cant Industrial land to be approximately
3 times the vacant l and zoned for multi-f~~ly and 6 times the vacant land zoned
Commercial o This appears t o be excessive in view of current im,~ediate needs of
the Cityj particularly for low i ncome multi-family development.
The report also indicates t hat vacant
3 times that zoned R5- 9o
land zoned Rl-4 is approximately
The latter category only is applicable to low income
families, whi ch apparently constitute the majority of familie s in Atlant a.
For detailed comparis on between the HR C July
5 Analysis of vacant land
zoned for apartments (tabulated from Zoning Map previously provided by the
Planning Department ) and the Appendix which accompanied the attached Planning
Department report, see Encl. 2~ atta ched.

Comparison of Jul y S Analy.,is --:;y :!-:2C fro:n Zoni:'"lg ?fap c'ind
Appendix to July 21 Me.'Tlo. from Planning Depart ment
Zoning :Map was revised April 31, 1967.
Appendix was compiled as of January 1966.
As can be seen, discrepencies exist in both land lots and acreages
between the Zoning Map Analysis and the Ap~endix.
This may be accounted for
by zoning changes and _new· developments which have taken place since the
compilation shown in the Appendix.
However, this reduces the dependency which
can be placed now on the compilation of figures sho-~m in the Appendix.
See
Summary at end of the attached Comparative Tabulations for acrea;:;es
already committed; turned dovm or rejected; and planned for otner us es .
Vacant areas zoned A-L (understood to be generally f or a specifically
planned development)
and A-2 (not generally accepted locally as suitable for
low-cost housing, except for the Elderly) have not been generally included
in this comparison.
The vacant land in both categories is relatively small
however.
CONCLUSION:
In a:ny event, from the attached comparison, it is quite obvious that the
land currently zonac A-1 is both inadequate in quantity and U.!equitably
distributed throughout the City to meet requirements of the low-income housing
progra111.

Comparison of July S Analys is oy !--2.C fro:n Zoni:'lg Hap and
Appendix to July 21 Memo. from Plannine Depart men-::.
Zoning Hap was revised April 31, 1967.
Appendix was compiled as of January 1966.
As can be s een, discrepencies exist in both land l ots and a creages
between t he Zoning Map Analysis and the Ap~endix.
This may be accounted f or
by zoning chanees and new developments which have taken pla ce s i nce the
compilation shown in the Appendix.
However, this reduces the dependency which
can be placed now on the compilation of figures sho~r.1 in the Appendix.
See Summary at end of t he attached Comparative Tabul ations for a crea,:=;es
already committed; turned dovm or rejected; and planned for other us es .
Vacant areas zoned A-L (understood t o be generally for a specifi cally
planned development)
and A-2 (not generc.lly accepted locally as suitable for
low-cost housing, except for the Elderly) have not been generally included
in this comparison.
The vacant land in both categories is relatively ~~all
however.
CONCLUSION:
In any event, from the attached comparison, it is quite obvious that the
l and currently zoned A-1 i s both inadequate i n quantity and U.4equitably
distributed t hroughout t he Ci ty to meet requirements of the low-incorne housing
program.

R. EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant
MRS. ANN M. MOSES , Executive Secret ary
DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison
Memorandum To: Mayor Allen
From: Malcolm Jones
The action of the Zoning Committee yester day in turning down the re-zoning
of a 51 acre tract off Browntown Rd. (Zoning Petition #Z-67-124-D) from M-1
and R-5 to A-1 for Turnkey development was very disappointing to those of us
wor king in promotion of housing for low-income families. More s erious however
is the discouragement to owners, sponsors and developers of other tra cts under
considerat ion f or inclusion in the l ow-income housing program f or both Turnkey
and 221 d {3) development.
I recommend that you ask the Board of Aldermen to defer act ion on t his
pet i tion, rather than t o turn i t dovm, when it comes before them August 21.
The advantage of such action would be to at least del ay a turndown, which
would prohibit futur e considerat i on of t he sit e for 18 mont hs , and would perhaps
maintain a ray of hope in sponsors and developers f or other l ow-income housing
pr ojects under consideration.
This tract is one of only 5 t hus far tentatively approved by HUD for Turnkey,
after 9 months of effor t . Of the remaining f our, one 15 acre t r act r equires
r e-zoning and besides the owner has not yet agreed; another 20 acre tract i s
zoned appropriat el y but t he owner has not yet agr eed to sell f or this purpose .
This reduces the approved firm sit es t o two of 20 acres each (appr oximately
480 units ) .
The Browntown Rd. site i s now zoned predominately M-1 . It had t he favorable
recommendation of the Planning Board and the formal unanimous support and
endorsement of the Executive Group of the Housing Resources Committ ee.
If the City cannot get this site re-zoned for low-income housing, I see
little prospect for favorable action on others . The amount of vacant land
in the City currently zoned A-1 is just not adequate (as can be confirmed by
various sponsors and developers) to meet the needs of the low-income housing
program (see attached report). The 802 acres of vacant land indicated as zoned
A-1 was as of January, 1966. All that we have been able to find now from the
Zoning Map dated April 31, 1967 provided the HRC by the Planning Department,
and which is not already committed to the low-income housing prograni~rejected,
or planned for other use is approximately 204 acres. (It is understood however
that some very small tracts, expecially with mixed zoning and not suitable for
the program, are not included on the zoning map).
�Mayor Allen
Page 2
August 11, 1967
This land is not all available however, as some of it is too expensive;
some owners are not willing to sell for low-income housing; some sites are too
small to be profitable; some, although otherwise suitable, will not meet HUD 1 s
pol icy because of location in r acially identifiable areas; and other reasons .
Therefore ,'we must depend to a large extent on ability to re-zone qualified
sites to meet the requirements . If that cannot be done (we have already had
several failures), solution of the problem becomes extremely difficult if not
impossible under current practice . We may thus have to resort to other .procedures
and techniques .
Respectively,
Malcolm D.

On July 6 this map and a pre l i minary analysis o f areas zoned A- 1 and

showed a total of 482 acres 11 zoned for a pa rtmentsfl. The apparent
discrepancy between t his f i gure and t he 802 acres shown in the data
processing analysis can be explained by the fa c t that the nap s used
in both co.Jputations, although similar, were no t rea l ly c ompa r a ble .
The map used i n the Ho using Resources Comr.iittee analy s is was at a
s c ale of 2,000 feet to the inch and the maps used in the data p rocessing a nalysis were at a s c ale ~f 400 feet t o the i nch . Due to the
small maps at a s c ale of 2 , 000 feet to the inch , ac c u~ate measurement
is difficult, and , additionally, only large parc els c an be show~.
At 400 scale , more a c curate representation and measurement are possible.
71:e r-::fore , upon re c eipt by t;,e Plann ing Department of the cor.1.-nittec
re quest for additional data, further de tailed maps at 40 0 s cal e were
prepared s howi ng only signific a nt va cant tracts (4 acres and larger),
so that a more detailed listing of vacant land could be made. A
preliminary analysis has be en made by the Planning Departmen t of ea ch

App endix A to this memorandum.
The map s used in the analys is are avai l ab le in the Planning Departcent

Comparison ·9f ,·Juli 5 Analysis by HRC from Zoning Map and
Appendix to July 21 Memo • .from Planning Department
Zoning Map was revised April 31, 1967.
Appendix was compiled as of January 1966.
As can be seen, discrepencies exist in both land lots and acreages
between the Zoning Map Analysis and the Appendix.
This may be accounted for
by zoning changes and new: developments which have taken place since the
compilation shown in the Appendix.
HOlvever, this reduces the dependency which
can be placed now on the compilation of figures shown in the Appendix •
.-.
See Summary at end of the attached Comparati ve Tabulations for acreages
already committed; turned down or rejected; and planned for other uses.
Va-cant areas zoned A-L (understood to be generally for a specifically
planned development)
and A-~ (not generally accepted locally as suitable for
low~cost housing, except for the Elderly) have not been generally included
in this compari son.
The vacant l and in both categories is relati vely small
however.,
CONCLUSI ON :
In any event, from t he attached comparis on, it is quite obvious that the
land currently zoned A-1 is both inadequate in quantity and unequitably
distributed throughout the City to meet requirements of the low-income housing
program.

Members, Executive Group, Housing Resources Cormnittee
Report on Vacant Land in Atlanta
The attached report (Encl. 1) has been provided _by the Planning Department
upon request of HRC (July 6 Executive Group Meeting) for total acerage zoned
Apartments, Commercial, Industrial and Residential.
(Tabulation of vacant acerages
by Land Lot and District which accompanied the report has not been reproduced.)
Totals for each of the above zoning categories have been tabulated in
pencil on first page of the report to facilitate overall comparison.
The report shows the amount of vacant Industrial land to be approximately
3 times the vacant land zoned for nrulti-family and 6 times the vacant land zoned
Conunercial.
This appears to be excessive in view of current immediate needs of
the City, particularly for low income multi-family development.
The report also indicates that vacant
3 times that zoned R5-9.
land zoned Rl-4 is approximately
The latter category only is applicable to low income
families, which apparently constitute the majority of families in Atlanta;.

zoned for apartments (tabulated from Zoning Map previously provided by the
Planning Department) and the Appendix which accompanied the attached Planning
Department report.P see Encl. 2·, attached.

are small tracts of less than 1 acre located in otherwise developed
areas. Therefore, a series of maps at 400 scale was prepared showing
vacant land and zoning for use in the City's land use plan_niri.g project.
copy of the data processing listing of · parcel code numbers of vacant
parcels, zoning and acreage data was delivered to Steve Schwartz of
Cecil Alexander's office during the latter part of April; and; also
during the latter part of April, Mr. Schwartz was given access to the
400 scale maps in the Planning Department showing these vacant parcels.
These maps were copied and delivered to Mr. Alexander's office prior
to May 1.
A
On June 28 at a meeting of the Planning and Development Co~uittee,
a map of vacant and "under,-developed" land was shown in connect i on
with the land use plan progress report. After this meeting, Malcolm
Jones requested that a copy of this map showing zoning of vacant areas
be provided to the Housing Resources Committee. This map was prepared
by the Planning Department and delivered to Col. Jones.
On July 6 this map and a preliminary anal y sis of areas zoned A- 1 a nd
vac a nt was pre sented to the Housing Resources Committe e . Th e anal ysis
showed a total ·o f 482 acres "zoned for apartments_". The ap parent
discrepancy between this f igure and the 802 acres shown in t he dat a
proc e ssing analysis can be explained by the fact that the map s used
in both cot.1putations, although similar, were not really comparable.
The map used in the Housing Re sources Committee analysis wa s at a
scale of 2,000 feet to the inch and the maps used in the data proce ssing a nalysis were at a scale ~f 400 feet to the inch. Du e to t he
small maps at a scale of 2,000 feet to the inch, accurate measurement
is difficult, and, additionally, only large parcels can be show n.
At 400 scale, more accurate representation and measurement are pos sible .
Therefore , upon receipt by the Planning Department o f t he com.~i ttee
r e qu e st for additional data, furthe r detailed maps at 400 scal e were
p repared showing only signific a nt vacant tracts (4 ac r es and larger),
so t hat a more de tailed listing of vacant land could be made . A
pre l imi nary analysis has been made by the Planning Department o f each
si gnificant tract , and the result of this a nalysis i s p re s ented in
Ap pe nd ix A to t hi s memo r andum .
The map s us ed in t he analys is a r e availabl e in the Planning Department
for detailed examination by i n tere sted parties.

The Executive Group of the Housing Resources CommittEe of the City of
Atl anta, Georgia this date unanimously adopted a motion that the Committee
prepare a memorial for use by Mayor I van Allen Jr. in connection with his
scheduled testimony, Thursday, July 13, before the Senate Appropriations
Committee, pointing out t he need f or, and this Committee's support of,
reinstatement of the Rent Supplement progr am.
Atlanta is now promoting an accelerated five-year program for constructi on
of 16 , 800 low-cos t hous ing units by the end of 1971, in order to provide decent,
safe and sanitary housing for all of its citi zens ~ Of this amount, 9, 800 units
are needed during 1967 and 1968.
The City has planned strongly on t he Rent Supplement progr am to supplement
Publ ic Housing for families in the lowest income brackets. Without it our Public
Housing requirements will have to be substantially increased.
The Rent Supplement program s timulates Private Enterprise in producing the
needed housing units , provides a wider field in both desi gn and location, as
well as a broader economic mix, than convent i onal Public Housing developments.
At the same time it keeps the property on the t ax digest at full tax value.
Although several Rent Supplement projects were in planning in At lanta at
the time the funds were recently cut off by Congress, only t wo projects had
actually received final approval; one of 108 units for Wheat St . Gardens and
one of 150 units f or the Catholic Archdiocese of At lanta.
This Committee sincerely hopes and strongly urges that the Senate Appropriations
Committee will see i ts way clear to reinstate the Rent Supplement program which
