RESPONSE TO QUESTIONS RAISED BY REPRES ENTATIVES OF THE
VINE CITY PROJECT AREA COMMI TTEE AND THE I R LEGAL COUNSEL
ON NOVEMBER 21, 1 9 69.
1. We re g ret that the situation in Vine City is such tha t repre sentatives o f the PAC h a ve r e queste d Mr . Ba rne tt' s tr an s f er. Mr. Parsells
and I bo t h f eel tha t Mr. Ba rne tt is totally commi tt e d to s erv e the PAC
and the Vine City community. We c er t a inly hope tha t a ny diff icult i e s
t ha t exi s t c an b e wo rked out and tha t Mr . Barnett ' s r elati onship with
the PAC wi ll b e effe ct i v e i n a chie v ing t he obj ective s of t h e Vine City
communl ty.
2. The Atl a nta Housing Author ity has e s t a bli s h e d a p r oj e ct of f ice and
a ppropria t e ·staff i n ea ch NDP a r e a i n order to b ring the program close r
to t he pe ople and to enable t he r eside n ts , thr ou gh their PA C, to b e involve d in t he pl a nning a nd impl eme n t a t ion o f t h e prog r am.
The pro ject
d i r e cto r is the Hous i n g Au tho rity' s re p r e sentative in the c ommunity and ,
in tur n, r epresents the community in his con t a ~ts wi th t hi s office.
Of
course, all memb ers o f the Au t hority are ava i labl e u p on request f o r
t e chni cal assista nce.
If a n y problems c a.n be i dentifi e d in communications between t he Autho rity and t h e PAC, the n we will d o more tha n our
share to c o rre ct them.
3. The PAC work ing dire ctly with the p roj e ct di re c t o r in the d ay- to -day
p r ogram a c tivi ties h a s p r oven effective in a ll nei ghborhoods. The
purpo se of es t a bl ishing proj e ct off ice s and p r oj e ct d ire c t o rs in n ei ghbor h ood s is to a l l ow the Housing Authori t y and t he PAC to c ommuni c ate
mo re meaningfull y with res iden ts . All plans a nd recommenda t ion s fr om
�I
-2-

ind5.vidual neighborhoods are reviewed by the Housing Authority and the
City Planning Department with regard to the total program of the City
and the financial limitations of the City and the Federal government.
The PAC should be represented at all meetings of the Planning a nd
Development Co~il~ ittee of the Board of Alde r men when actions affecting
Vine City are considered (see item 6 below).
4. A list of the membership of the Citizens' Advisory Committee for
Urban Renewal appointed by the mayor is attached (exhibit A). It is
our understanding that Mr. A.J. Lockhart, 85 Griffin Street, NW, a
resident of Vine City, is on the committee. Attached is a letter
(exhibit B), dated August 20, 1969 to Dr. Noah Langdale, Chairman of
the CACUR, respectfully requesting that each Project Area Committee
be invited to appoint a member to the Citizens' Advisory Committee for
Urban Renewal.
5. All project directors , man agers and branch chiefs from the Redevelopment Division of the Authority hold staff meetings every Monday at 10 A.M.
at 824 Hurt Building. The purpose of the staff meetings is to report on
pending activities and to coordinate the activities of the various
projects and departments within the Authority. While these staff· meetings
are not secret, no useful purpose would be served by PAC attendance, as
no policy making decisions are made therein.
6.
The Housing Authority will notify the PAC whenever the Planning and
Development Corn.~ittee of the Board of Aldermen meets to consider any
actions affecting Vine City. Prior to adoption by the Mayor and Board
of Aldermen of any plans designating acquisition or rehabilitation of
properties, a public hearing is required, to which the PAC and area
residents will be invited to represent the community's views. However,
other committees of the Board of Aldermen may take actions conc e rning a
particular neighborhood without the knowledge of the Housing Authority,
such as actions on rezoning, street paving, utility installation, etc.
7. The draft of the Citizen Participation Report for Vine City, prepared by the Planning Consultants, contain s an estimated cost of $13,220.
to support the PAC and includes costs of publishing newsletters,
attend ing monthly me etings, and providing technic a l assistance to the PAC.
These costs will be included in t he pl anni ng consultant's contra ct.
'
8.
Following notification that Atlanta's 1970 -iNDP allocation from the
Federal Governme nt was reduced to $7,500,000 it bec ame necessary to
return the plans to the neighborhoods to determine priorities within
the available Federal funds.
The revised time schedule is as follows:

to Board of Al derme n for a ppr oval.
to Atl an t a Housing Authority Boar d for approval.
NDP a pplic a tion to HUD.
It is i mpera tive tha t PAC pl ans for each n e i ghborhood be final i ze d and
submi t t ed to the Housing Auth ority no l a t er t han J anuary 15, 1970.
9.
Each submission to the Federal Government of an NDP application
•j
�-3requires a citizen participation report including: (a) a statement
from each PAC on the timing, loc a tion a nd appropriateness of activities
planned for the Urban Renewal Ar ea, and (b) a report on citizen participation describing the inf o rma tion and technical assistance provided,
prepared by the Housing Authority. Whi le the PAC minutes would assist
the Housing Authority in pre paring item (b) above, it is not essential
or required that the Housing Auth ority obtain copies of the PAC minutes.
We feel compelled at this point to state a g ain that the PAC, representing
all the area residents~ consultants, and the Housing Authority are a team,
hopefully working together in a cooperative spirit to achieve the objectives of the Vine City Community.
10.
With regard to PAC attendance at local, regional or national ~eetings
at project expense, see attached letter from HUD dated November 26, 1969,
(exhibit C).
11.
The Department of the Public Works of the City ha s advised this office
that street paving now under way in Vine City, was undertalrnn at the
request of the Mayor. With resp e ct to new construction to be undertaken
by the City in Vine City, I have requested Mr. Ray Nixon, Chief of the
City Construction, to coordinate future work with the Housing Authority
to determine if the improvements are in accordance with the plans for the
Area and to dete1"'Illine the method of funding, ie., assessment against
property owners or provided by the City.
12.
Apparently the relocation activity report was not included in the
Neighborhood Development Program application furnished to the PAC. A
copy of the relocation activity report is attached (exhibit D).
13.
It is our understanding that the PAC volunteered to assist the
planning consultants in conducting projecr area surveys .
In accordance
with the consultants' contract with the Authority and mm re g ulations,
all survey data become the property of the Authority. However, all
planning documentation is available to the PAC at the project office.
14.
The City Planning Department is responsible for the annual preparation and submission of the City's workable program to the Department
of Housing and Urban Development. Contact Mr. Collier Gladin, Planning
Director of the City , 7th floor, Cit y Hall, telephone 522-4463, for info1"Ination relating to Atlanta's workable program.
15.
It is the policy of the Housing Authority to employ residents from
program areas as jobs become available dependent, of course, on meeting
job qualifications. Persons employed in jobs requiring minimum qualifications will be trained and promoted according to their demonstrated
abilities.
16.
The City Planning Department and the Housing Authority will p res ent
to the Planning and Development Conµni ttee of the Board of Aldermen a
proposed allocation o f NDP moneys and activities by neighbo rhoods based
on available Federal funds and PA C recommendations and priorities, all
subject to approval of the Cit y comptroller, Planning and Devel o pment
Committee, the mayor and Board o f Aldermen and the Federal Government,
(see attached schedules A and B, exhi b its E and F).
17.
Structures in good condition will not be acquired unless their
location and retention is contrary to the Urban Renewal plans formulated
�-4by the PAC and adopted by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen after a public
hearing. The plan will designate good structures for rehabilitation.
18.
Home owners can be told now wh ether the i r houses a r e subject to
rehabilitation or clearance as determined by the plans prepared by the
PAC and their pl a nning consultants. However, it is important to differentiate whether rehabilit a tion or clearance will take place in 1970 or a
subsequent year and also to know tha t the pl a ns are not final until
approved by the City and the Federal Government.
The PAC has established a priority of activities to be undertaken in 1970
w~th clearance to be g in in area 35, then area 34, etc. 4 specific area
must also be designated for rehabilitation by the PAC if this is your
desire.
In my letter to Mr. Laws on December 4, 1969 I indicated that , to
the e x tent feasible, the Housing Aut hority will carry out the objectives
of the PAC, ie., complete the clearance and redevelopment of a1,ea 35
before beginning acquisition in area 34. A determination must be made
about this particular sequence of areas as to whether it is practicable
and possible from the standpoint of street access, utilities, and construction of the residential units.
19.
It will be virtually impossible to acquire property, relocate families,
demolish buildings, install necessary improvements, sell the land to
private enterprise and to construct and complete housing short of a year,
which means that property acquisition of the second area will probably
· not occur in the initial NDP year.
It is simply a question of the
time involved to complete each activity in sequence in accordance with
applicable state and Federal regulations. · We will explore with the PAC
the most feasible way to proceed, and concur with the PAC that families
to be displaced from the initial clearance area should be kept to a
minimum and every effort must be made to provide an opportunity for each
family to remain in the area.
In summary, we hope that this response adequately answers the questions
posed at the November 21, 1969 meeting. We want to assure the PAC and
all residents of the Vine City community of the commitment of the Atlanta
Housing Authority to a meaningful invol veme nt of area residents in the
planning and execution of all Urb a n Renewa l a ctivities to b e u ndertaken
in Vine City . . The Housing Authority solicits the continued cooperati on
of the PAC as we work together to make Vine City an outstanding residential area of Atlanta.

IVAN ALLEN, JR., MAYOR
MEMORANDUM
TO:
CECIL A. ALEXANDER, Chairman
Housing Resources Committee
MALCOLM D. JONES
Housing Coordinator
Mr. R. Earl Landers
Administrative Assistant
Re your note to give you my opinion on Mr. James A. Smith's
Memorandum of March 14, 1969, to Mr. Wofford pertaining to first
batch ofwee~ylists from the Housing Authority of families certified
for Public Housing, the following is offered:
Hasty perusal of the 45 certifications indicates that only
11 locations listed appear to actually justify Housing Code notic es
(4 of these already had Housing Code notices, and notices were
prepared on 4 others as result of these inspections); a few may
have been justified because of overcrowding.
The remaining 34 certifications because of sub-standard
housing conditions or overcrowding include:
Public Housing unit in Perry Homes
4 lo<iati1o.p outside of the City Limits
Si~0 ' a8 dresses given which could not be found
Remainder apparently unjustified (in opinion of Housing
Code Inspectors)
Attention is invited to paragraph 4 of my Memorandum to you
of Febr uary 26 (copy attached) in which I pointed out the fallacy
of the Hous ing Authority accepting the tena nts' word for s ub - s t a nd a rd
c o ndi ti ons of housing as a basis for applicat i on fo r Public Housing.
This pr a ctic e is c l early confirmed i n communication of Februar y 28,
1969 , from the Chief Tenant Selec tion Officer to Mr . Sm it h (copy
of wh i ch is e nc l os e d ). This is obviously the pr i ncipal reason for
the abuse indica ted in Mr. Smith's Summar y Memora ndum to Mr. Wofford.
Unless this is corrected, no amount of ef f ort on the part of the City
can ever produce enough Public Housing in Atlanta.
The attached material appears to be positive evidence of why
the current procedure should be changed, as proposed by Building
Department Officials, that a prospective applicant for Public Housing
�Mr. R. Earl Landers
March 21, 1969
Page 2
because of inadequate housing conditions should first request and
obtain a certificate from the Housing Code Division that the unit
occupied is sub-standard or overcrowded to the extent that relocation
is justified; and that such certification be presented to Housing
Authority Tenant Selection Officials before certification for
Public Housing is considered.
I recommend that the Housing Authority be requested to adopt
such procedure immediately.
One other detail brought out during my discussion with Housing
Authority Officials was that in reporting certification for Public
Housing to the Building Department, an estimated date for move would
be included (although it was mutually admitted that such dates would
be tentative). This does not appear to have been done in these
instances.
It should be included in future reports.
Sincerely,

1n , and to protect the health and safety of residents of, the program area:
1.
Systematic clean-up of public areas and ways, including the carrying J, (;;out of comprehens ive r odent control and extermination measures.

2.
Specia l collection of r~fuse ( garbage and trash) and bulky junk
such as old ~pplicances , furnitm·e, and autos parked by owners
and tenants for removal and disposal as part of an area-wide
campaign to clean up priva te premises.
3.
Repa ir of ser ious deficiencies in public streets to meet needs
consistent with shor t term continued use of area prior to under•
taking of permanent action (exce pt expressway, free,;-iays, and other

cuts in pavement and the repair of curbst gutters, culverts, aud
sidewalks .
4.

Dear Mr. Smith:
The enclosed names are families that have been certified to low rent
public housing dur ing the week of February 19, 1969. As we no longer
make home visits, a small percentage of these families may live in
standard housing, but are classified as sub-standard due to overcrowding. We are now verifying applicant housing conditions by
accept i n~ applicants sta t ement.
Due to our low va cancy rat e the list of names are f ew, _but will
increape consider ably as new public housing becomes available.
From now on the list of names will come to you weekly with no

Subject:
Weekly lists of families certified for Pub7 c ~
Housing.
Several days ago a system was instigated whereby we would
receive weekly lists from A.H.A., and we would go out immediately
to inspect the property unless we already had an active case in
our files on the particular property .
The first "batch" has been checked out and a list is attached,
which gives a synopsis by Housing Supervisor Eidson of remarks as
reported to him by the Housing Inspectors; also of the action being
taken. Attached is a copy of the A.H.A. lists furnished us .
My observation is that it has generally resulted in very little
gain for the effort involved as far as correcting housing conditions
within the City. It also seems that just about anyone who wishes to
live in Public Housing is eligible, if they say so!
I am continuing to check out these lists for Housing Code
violations as directed, and will report to you as they are checked
out .

U. R. Project
As a result of our tour of the above area with the Mayor
on July 9, 1968, and our prior conversation with the Housing
Authority, I feel that I am in need of a specific written
policy to follow concerning the activities and extent of
jurisdiction of the Building Department in the above project
area.
I have had many requests to " hold off" in the above area
because of contemplated action by the Housing Authority ; but
I can see a need f or inte r im a ction befor e the proj ect reaches
the execution stage.
Inasmuch as both the Housing Authorit y and the Building
Department along with other departments of the City are
involved i n the tota l ef for t that s hould be made i n the
Bedford-Pine Proj ect Ar ea, I would appreciate a letter
establishing a definite policy to be fo llowed, particularly
concerning the demolition and rehabilitation of buildings in
this area.

Dear Mr. Hummel:
The above Project is in an area of acute racial tensions.
The
Part I for this Project has been submitted, and we have been
waiting for approval for a considerable length of time.
Public
Hearings have been held and the Part II submittal will be made
immediate:cy- after approval of the Part I.
The new Housing Act gives Atlanta an opportunity to convert this
Project to the new program entitled Neighborhood Development
Program. We wish to make this conversion at the earliest possible
date, which we estimate to be within approximately three to four
months.
Pending such conversion, however, it is important to
Atlanta that this Project be approved as presently constituted
immediately,without the delay necessary to convert it.
Any steps you can take in view of the foregoing which would result
in early approval of this Project would be greatly appreciated.

I hav e r e c e ntly made s everal tours of this area and find the
structures in an e xtremely bad and oft e n dang e rous ·stat e of repair.
In
reviewing this with the city's Building Insp e ctor, he has advis e d me of
the practical difficulties that h e has in requiring a property owner to
made a substantial inv e stme nt whe n it is anticipated that the pro perty
will soon be acquired as a resy ~

area to acquire str ee t and sewe r rights of way a s well as properties of
those persons who, it was fe l t)were s uffering a severe hardship because
of the impending urban renewal act i vity .
It is now obvious that every
resi dent and prope rty owne r in this area is suffering a hardship and the
City Comptroller has advised me that)even if funds were available)there
is c on s iderable risk involved in advancing funds for any further acquisitions that are outside · l e tter of c ons e nt areas .
This is because of the
'
rule that requires us to accept the amount we paid, or t he appraised value,
whichever is lowe r , at the time we eventually resell the property to th e
project.
I am cognizant of the fact that the combination of the original

The situation in this ar ea is now critical.
