Dear Mayor Allen:
As you may know, our client TUFF and the Southern
Ch ristian Leadership Conference jointly sponsored a mass
meeting at the Carver Homes Corrnnunity Center on March 4th
to protest the policies of the Atlanta Housing Authority.
Approximately 750 people attended the meeting, and I think
I am safe in saying that every single one of these people
had a specific complaint against the Atlanta Housing
Author i ty.
Seven week s ago , on Januar y 16th,TUFF presented
to the Bo ard of the Atlanta Housing Autho r i t y a "Tenant s'
Bi l l of Ri ghts" which, if a dopted, wo uld go far towar ds
allev iatin g many of the tenants' c omp la i nts.
(The Bi l l
of Rights h as been endorsed by s u ch d iverse g roups a s
Good Government Atlanta and Metropolitan Atlanta Summit
Leadership Con ferenc e.) Fr om January 1 6th to today we
hav e h ad n o response from the h ousing authority on t h e
sub j e ct of that Bill of Ri g hts ; and jud ging by Mr. Attridge' s
irrespons i b le den i grat i on of a laws u it r ecen t ly f iled by

this o r on any o ther matte r designed to benefit tenants .
The refusal of the Atlanta Housing Auth o ri t y to

In my o p i nio n it is n ow u rgent that y ou i n tervene

�We are here tonight to tell Atlanta, Georgia to STOP treating
poor people in the housing projects like slaves.
STOP making mothers in Grady _Homes leave their babies at six
in the morning and go take care of the rich white man's children in Buckhead. STOP paying those maids only 30 dollars a week and raising their
rent.
,.
STOP making men in Perry Homes work for slave wages. STOP
evicting their families or dimming their lights when they can't get the r ent
on time. STOP making them pa y fines they don't deserve and bills they a r e
not r esponsible for.
STOP conditions in Carver Homes that let rats go after childr en.
STOP lying to peopl e about not having their applications.
And STOP, Atlanta, bragging about what you are doing for poor
people, because you aren't. Atlanta, yo u don' t even have Grady Homes,
Perry Homes and · Carver Hom es. You have Grady Slums, Perry Prisons,
and Carver Ghettoes! And that' s where hungry children, unemployed men,
and poor mothers live.
We say to Atlanta, Georgia, that if you don't STOP all this, we are
going to STOP you from doing it. SCLC and the Tenants United For Fairness
---that means TUFF -- are going to get tough with you, and we mean everyone from Mayor Ivan Allen on down.
WE DEMAND the Bill of Rights for Public Housing Tenants. We
are sick and tired of the Mayor and the Board for the Atlanta Housing Authority delaying action on our Bill of Rights. The injustices to poor people in the
�-2housing projects have been going on for years and years , and we will not
stand for more delays and more studies. We have studied the Atlanta
Housing Authority, and we have found that the Atlanta Housing Authority, starting with Mr . Satterfield (the director) had better get right or get
lost. And the Board needs some new blood that represents poor people,
no t bankers and real estate interests.
We especially demand that the Atlanta Housing Authority tell us
exactly why it doesn't reduce rents instead of raising rents. WE DElVIAND
that they tell us what they are doing with ever y penny of poor people's money
fo r s ecurity deposits when they move into housing pro:j'ects·. Wher e i s the
money? Do t he banks get it ? The white banks? Wha t does the Housing
Authority do with the poor people's money? Do they get interest on the
money and reduc e r ents ? NO ! Do they fix up the housing projects? NO!
the tenants have to pay for that. Do they provide more electricity and heat?
NO ! they dim the lights and the homes get cold. Do they use the money to
buy more slum properties? Do they use the money to pay their own salaries?
WHERE IS THE MONEY? We demand that the money be controlled by the
'
tenants and used as the tenants determine for improvements in their homes.
WE ALSO DEMAND that public housing be turned over to the tenats
so that the tenants can manage their own homes and control admissions, discipline, fines, clean-up, and hiring for maintenance. Do you know that this
has been done in projects in Baltimore, Maryland, and Cleveland, Ohio?
Why not Atlanta, if Atlanta is so great and so progressive?
,.,
- - --- - - - --- - - - -
- - - - - - - -- - - - - -
�-3-
WE ALSO DEMAND THAT each housing project have a hearing
-
panel - - made up of tenants and management, and controlled by the tenants .
This panel must have the power to veto the rules of the Atlanta Housing
Author ity. · This panel could decide who manages their project and who gets
..
jobs in managem ent and custodial work. The tenants themselves would have
fir st choice. That is a way to really fight poverty by giving poor people
jobs . Housing projects don't need managers who come from other comm unities. We don' t need mapger s who dig up the flower gardens that the poor
people planted, a s they did at one pr oject here in Atlanta. We don' t need
managers and government employe es breaking into homes and searching
property when the tenants aren't ther e. We don't want dictator managers
fining us and putting us into the streets with out money for rent or food.
WE ALSO DEMAND that the Atlanta Housing Authority recognize
TUFF as the official bargaining agent for tenants and stop intimidating people
in tuff;.1:.
These are our demands, and we want simple answers -- like
YES or NO -- and we want answers NOW.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Ralph David Abernathy started fighting for poor people and black people 14 years ago in Montgomery, Alabama.
They have assassinated Dr o King, but if anyone thinks I am going to let
them forget about it or stop fighting for my brothers and sisters -- they
got a lesson to learn, starting right here in Atlanta, Geor giao

Mr. R. Gregory Griggs
UR Committee Board of Aldermen

Atlanta, Georgia 30316
Dear Mr.Griggs:
Recently you asked Mr. Openshaw for information concerning the property
bounded by Georgia Avenue, Capitol Avenue, Bass Street, and w·ashington
Street. Approximately a half of this area is in the Rawson-Hashington
Urban P,enewal Project, and the other half is in the 1969 clearance
area in the Model Cities portion of the Neighborhood Development Program.
If the Rawson-~ashington Project is to close before December 31, 1969, the
sale of this land would take place through two simultaneous offerings.
Under the pres3nt approved land use, the land can only be used for commercial,
and would be offered in such a way that a Developer could hly the entire
area with Crew Street to be clo sed, or buy either or both blocks to keep
Crew Street open. Under the Model Cities Land Use Plan, the block bounded
by Crew, Georgia, Capitol, and Bass is designated for park use, which is,
of course , public. If this portion of the area were to be used for public
purposes, amendments to each of the two Programs would be necessary.
In any event, the land would have to be appraised by two competent appraisers,
with a price to be concurred in by the Renewal Assist.cU"ice Administration.
The appr aisals would be the s ame for either commer cial or public use,because
proper ty to be sold for public purposes must be appraised at its hi1ghest and
best alternate use . We have not, of course, had appraisals made. Based on
our experience, our Real Estat e people estimate that t he pr ice per sq. foot
would not be les s than :j;J . 00 or more than $5. 00. Land for commercial uses
must be sold under competitive pr ocedures . Land for publ ic purposes, how=
ever, can be sold wi thout adver tising. If t he land wer e used as a park, t he
price of t he l and would be eligible a s a non- ca.sh grant-in- aid credit to the
extent that t he park s erved and support ed t he Project. I f it were used f or
office space, no credit would be avai lable. If part wer e used f or one purpose
�-2-
and part for another, the above provisions would apply. If the area
were to be a Park with temporary use for office space, the matter
would have to be negotiated with the Renewal Assistance Administ ration,
and probably receive 1vashington concurrence or approval.
It is my hope that this will clarify the questions you have. If· not,
please let me know and we will try to provide further information.
Sincerely yours,
~53!~

Dear Mayor Allen:
As you may know, our client TUFF and the Southern
Chris ti an Leadership Confe rence jointly sponsored a mass
meeting at the Carver Homes Community Center on March 4th
to protest the policies of the Atlanta Housing Authority.
Appr o x imate ly 750 people attended the meeting, and I think
I am safe in saying that every single one of these people
had a specific complaint against the Atlanta Housing
Authority.
Seven weeks ago, on January 16th,TUFF presented
to the Board of the Atlanta Housing Authority a "Tenants'
Bill of Rights" which, :..f adopted, would go far towards
alleviating many of the tenants' complaints.
(The Bill
of Rights has been endorsed by such di.verse groups as
Good Gover nment Atlanta and Metropolitan Atlanta Sum..~it
Leadership Conference.) From January 16th to today we
have had no response from the housing authority on the
subject of that Bill of Rights; and judging by Mr. Attridge's
irrespons ible denigration of a laws uit recently filed by
this offic e against the Atlanta Housing Authority as
"harrassment", and Mr. Satte rfield's recent attempt to
block Lega l Aid' s funding, we would be foolish to expect
voluntary action from the Atlanta Housing Authority on
this or on any othe r matter de signe d to benefit tenants.
The r efus al of the Atlanta Housing Authority to
r espond to the l eg itimate demands of t enants can only
ha rm o ur city, for as you will see from ~he enclosed copy
of Dr. Abe r na thy's r emarks l ast night, the tenants are
b eginning to escalate their de m~nds .

If we continue along the present road the Atlanta

When TUFF first demonstrated early in November

In my opinion it is now urgent that you intervene
Unless the
tenan-l: s are granted s ome relie f from the arbitrary policies
of the housing authority , and unless the y are give n some
power to control their own lives , the present conflict
will deepen, and, I fear, broaden. May I implore you to
join with TUFF, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Atl anta Legal Aid Society in seeking a fair
solution to the problems of tena nts in Atlanta public

Housing Author ity, and we have found that the Atlanta Housing Author i ty, s tarting with Mr . Satterfi eld (the director) ha d better get right or get
lost. And the Boa r d needs som e new blood tha t represents poo1..· P"'ople,
not baiL'l{e r a 8.nd r eal estate inter es ts.
We e specially dem4nd that the Atlanta Housing Authority tell us
exactly why it do es n't reduce rents instead of raising rents. WE DEMAND
that the y tell us what they are doing with ever y penny of poor people's money
for secur ity d eposits when they move into housing pr oj'ects·. Vlhere is the
money? Do the banks get it? The white banks? What does the Housing
Authority do with the poor people's money? Do they get interest on the
money and reduce r ents? NO! Do they fix up the housing projects? NO!
the tenants have to pay for that. Do they provide more electr icity and heat?
NO! they dim the lights and the homes get cold. Do they use the money to
buy more slum properties? Do they use the money to pay their own salaries?
WHERE IS THE MONEY? We dem and that the money be controlled by the
tenants a' nd used as the tenants determine for improvements in their homes.
WE ALSO DEMAND that p;1blic ho '. i sing he turned over to the tenats
so tha t the tenants can manage their own hom es and control admissions, discipline, fines, clean-up, and hiring for maintenance. Do, you know that this
has been done in proj ects in Baltimot'e, Maryland, and Cleveland, Ohio?
Why not Atlanta, if Atlanta is so great and so _pr og1~essive?

-3WE ALSO DElVIAND THAT each ho using pro ject have a hearing
panel - - made up of tenants and management , and controlled by the tenahts .
This panel must have the po wer to veto the r ul es of the Atlanta Housing
Authority. This panel co:1 ld decide who m an,.._ges their project a nd who gets

TLe tena nts t hems2lves ·\1ould have

Dear M ills :
I am. returning your map on the airport property.
I certainly would like to build low income hou ing
on this land if such was pos ible.
Unfortunately, the law i perfectly clear that
property acquired through public condemnation for
airport purpose , can only be used for airport
purpose . Thi i the is ue we are con tantly faced
with in acquiring additional land for the airport.
Secondly, thi land is in Clayton County. and I do
not think the Atlanta Housing Authority ould under
any circum tance have the authority or c pability to
build in Clayton County.

Dear Mr. Sterne:
Over the past several months, we have becomef
increasingly aware of the hardships worked o n applicants
by the one year residenc y r equire ment for Atlanta public
housing.
In our opinion, this requirement is b ad public
policy and is probably unconstitutional.
I, therefore,
urge the Board of Commissioners to co nsider its complete
elimination.
As y ou may know , durationa l reside ncy requireme nts
in the are a _of public welfare have b e en attacke d r e cent ly
in the courts . Indeed, a three-judge Federal District
Court for the District of Columbia has r u l ed that such a prerequisite for welfare benefit s is unconstitution al.
The District o f Columbia case , along with othe r s ,
is current l y pe nding before the United St a te s S up r e me Court .
It is likely that a de,cision voiding residency requirements
for welfare applicants will be rendered in the near futur e .
The argume nt before the S upreme Cour t i n the
we lfare c ase s is e qually applicab l e t o p ub lic h o us i ng .
No l eg itimate p u r pose of the Fede ral o r State p ub lic
housing program is served b y a durational resi denc y req u ireme nt, since the twe lve month rule me r e l y f orces p oor n e wcomers to Atlan ta t o live in the sl ums or t o p a y excess i ve

Furthermore, denial of public housing i n Atlanta serve s
to limit severely a Georgia citizen's fundame nt al rights
to freedom of movement and association.
Because of the likelihood of a Supreme Co urt
decision o ut lawing durational residency req u irements
f or welfare applicants, we are loathe to devote time and
effort to litigating a similar requirement in public
housing.
If our clients' interests cann ot be served_
without litig ation, we shall, of course, be ob liged to
move f orward ~hrough the courts. But I would ur ge the
Authority 's Board to reconsider its p o sitio n in this
matter.
It is our understanding that Ma yo r AlleD has
taken a personal interest in the residency requirement.
I am, therefore, sending h im a copy of this l e tter a n d
urging him t o support our request f or a change in the rule.
I shall look forward to hearing from y ou soo n
concerning this matter.

Dear Mayor Allen:
Thank you for your letter of April
subject of AHA's residency requirement.
As an Atlantan I am entirely sympathetic with
the problem you and the city have encountered. I
know of your efforts to persuade county officials to
build public housing outside the city limits, and I
know how frustrating it is to deal with officials who
coldly and calmly throw all of their problems onto our
shoulders.
A residency requirement for public housing,
however, punishes only low-income people. It does not
work to force out-of- city officials to build public
housing, because poor people are politically weak
(especially in non-urban areas) and invariably ignorant
about asserting such power as they may have.
The dilemma faced by Atlanta, of course, is grave.
Irrespons ible officials force people i nto our city, and
irresponsible legislators deny us the f unds to deal with
the problems their jurisdictions have imposed upon us.
But this dilemma cannot be solved by residency
requirements, which are both unconstitutional and unwise.
I presume we must attempt to solve our problems by
continuing our search for federal and state funds to
bui~d new housing .
SPO N S OR ED BY UNITED APPEAL A N D ECON O MI C OPPORTU N ITY ATLANTA, IN C .
/
�Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.,
April 11th, 1969
Page #2.
And while I know it is no answer to the problem you
and the city face today, I must point out that Atlanta
has built its justifiably brilliant national reputation
in _ large part on the concern you and your administration
have shown for the humane resolution of urban problems.
Anyone can find an angry solution to the 20th Century:
it takes an Ivan Allen to find a calm one.
Legal Aid now has a number of clients who have
suffered as a result of AHA's policy.
(I understand
you discussed one of these clients with Eugene Taylor ,
a lawyer on this staff.) As I am sure you know I wrote
to you and Mr. Sterne not out of any desire to "create
an issue," but in the hope of resolving, without litigation
or publicity, a very real problem facing a number of clients
of this office.

Re :
Bedford -Pine NDP Area
Acquisition of 11 Hardship 11 Parcels
Dea r Mayor Allen:
Following the meeting in your office on March 14, 1969 relative
to the acquisition of vac ant, dilapidated structure s in the Bedford-Pine
NDP Area, I requested a policy decision from the Departme nt of Housing
and Urb an Development. A copy of the HUD letter, dated March 20, 1969,
outlining procedure s relating to the use of project funds under a Neighbor hood Development Program (NDP) for the acquisition of properties not scheduled t o be ac quired during 1969 , i s attached.
We have , thi s dat e , submitted a r equest to HUD for authori za tion
t o obta in t itle sea rc h and appraisals on all of the pro perties which
Mr. Wofford ha s furnished this office . Following a fi eld inspection,
the Housing Authority ha s added additional propertie s containing vac ant ,
dilapi date d structures , in addit ion to eleven properties whos e owners
have reque sted early acquisition due to hardship .
The Author ity has previously secured HUD approval to ac quire
the city-owned property at ~03 North Avenue, and will proc eed with t he
demolit i on of t hat struct ure a s soon a s the City conveys title t o the
Authority ( authorized by the Bo ard of Al dermen on March 17, 1969 ) .
The Authori ty i s proceedi ng with apprai sal s of 278 and 288
Pine Street, a s these properties are i ncluded i n t he NDP acqui s i t i on
program for 1969 .
�Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.

While the acquisition of 57 add1tional properties will require
adjustments of the approved NDP budget and additional staff time in revising title and appraisal contracts, we strongly believe that the program
must be flexible ·enough to remove structures found to be hazardous to the
health and safety of the community, and responsive to the expressed needs
of the people.
We want to thank you for calling this matter to our attention .

Dear Mr. Satterfield:
Subject:
Project No. Ga. A-2
Acquisition of "Hardship" or "Opportunity"
Parcels in NDP
Mr. Howard Openshaw has asked as to our policy on the use of project
- ·I
•I
·,
funds under a Neighborhood Development Program for the acquisition
during the 11Action Year" of land not scheduled for acquisition during
that year • . His specific question relates to the acquisition of about
40 scattered parcels on which are vacant, ~ilapidated structures,
located in the Bedford-Pine area. The Activity Program for the NDP
anticipated that these parcels would not be acquired this year, but
instead i n a subsequent year •
- The NDP offers flexibility in the acquisition of land, so tha t an LPA
can purchase land in hardship cases or opportunity cases, even though
the land was not scheduled for acquisition irt the Action Year. A
contingency amount is put in the annual budget for this . pur pose.
Of cours e , no land can be pur chased unl ess it meets the area el igibility
r equirements o f Georgi a and Federal l aw , a nd unless it is in an area
for which ther e is an urban renewal plan which has been approv ed locally
and by HUD. The Bedford-Pine area meets these requirement s; most other
areas in Atlanta 's NDP do not.
We believe that the money in an NDP as a contingency for land acquisition,
and even money included for land acquisition in specified areas, may be
used for purchasing parcels not designated for acquisition in the Action
Year. However, such parcels must be either hardship" or "opportunity"
parcels, and the owners must be willing to sell for the offering price;
eminent domain should not be used for policy reasons.
�-2You should obtain our approval for the purchase of each of the hardship" or "opportunity" parcels. Our approval will authorize your
securing appraisals and a title search of the property and its purchase
later, at a concurred-in price. We will follow a liberal policy in
granting approvals, and will not superimpose our judgment as to what
· constitutes a "hardship" or "opportunity" on the judgment of your
Authority. Nonetheless, we must determine that the acquisition of
these parcels does not take money, staff time, relocation housing, or
other resources to such an extent that the programmed accomplishments
of the Action Year cannot be met.
This policy should provide sufficient latitude for your Authority to
change its acquisition program to meet changed circumstances during the
year.
Sincerely yours,

Group one contains forty-three parcels containing vacant, dilapidated structures, many of them placarded by the City Building Inspector's
of£ice as unfit for human habitation. Mayor Ivan Allen has requested
the Housing Authority to acquire and demolish these structures as quickly
as possible, as these structures are hazardous to the health and safety
0£ the community.
Group two contains three parcels on which are located vacant,
dilapidated structures as indicated in group one. · However, these parcels
also contain substandard, occupied structures designated for future
clearance. In order to remove the vacant, hazardous structures without
incurring severance damages, the Housing Authority proposes to acquire
and demolish the total parcels. Group three contains eleven parcels, the owners of which have
requested early acquisition to avoid further . undue hardship. The Housing
Authority staff has made a judgment that the documentation submitted by
the owners of these properties does in fact constitute a "hardship".
Upon receipt of your authorization to proceed with a title
search and appraisals of the above- listed properties, the Authority
will proceed at once to obtain title through negotiation. The Authority
will notify the Regional Office in the event we are unable to secure
title through negotiation.
T'n e Authority has also determ:L.~ed that the acquisition of thes e
57 pr operties does not take money , staff time, relocation housing , or
other r esources to such an extent that the programmed accomplishment s
o£ t he 1969 NDP Action Year cannot be met . The acquisiti on of these
proper t i es will be undertaken in accor dance with the terms of the NDP
Funding Agr eement , consistent with t h e Ur ban Redevelopment Plan f or
. the Bedfor d-Pine Ur ban Redevelopment Area adopted by the City and ap-
proved by mm, wit h suff icient funds available wit hin t he NDP budget
to undertake these a ctivit i es .
We urgently solicit your early approval of this reques t for
authorization to obtain t itle search and appraisals of these 57 properties

Dear Edwin :
Please express my regrets that I cannot be present at the
dinner honoring M . B . Satterfield £or hi years of service on
the Atlanta Housing Authority, and his additional years of service
in the low income housing field beginning with the Techwood
Project in Atlanta in 1936.
I am sure that Satt has a warm feeling of real accomplishment
when he looks back over the years of his satisfactory work in
providing housing for the, poor . All of the gQod that he has done
could be multiplied by the number of day of pleas nt existence
which thousand of Atlanta families have enjoyed.
Atlanta stand
t the very top in America in recognizing the
fundamental need for low in0.ome housing . On a relative basi ,
we have out tdpped the other national cities in building the e
fine unit ; and, Mr. S tterfield has been the Executive Director
during this period of greatest accomplishment, and he i entitled
to the grateful appreciation of the· people of tl nta.
Please expre
my gratitude, per onally nd offici lly, to Satt
for hi m jor contribution during the e dynamic ye rs.
Sincerely,
Ivan Allen, Jr.

Dear Ivan:
The article which I saw with
of cooperation in connection
I hope that we shall be able
and cooperative program with
reference to the County's lack
with housing alarmed me somewhat.
to proceed to work out a workable
Fulton County.
For the record, the writer and Mr. Jack Izard met with the
County Commissioners and their staff approximately one year
ago on this subject. We officially represented the Housing
Authority on this matter. I reported back to the Atlanta
Housing Authority that the County Commissioner s were most cordial
and cooperative and they had assured us that while they had no
money or means for sponsorship themselves, they would cooperate
and work with the Atlanta Housing Authority and staff in the
development of housing in Fulton County . Mr. Izard and I reported
the details of this to the Board and staff of the Housing
Authority, and this has been followed up from time to time.
Unfortunately, I am afraid a bog-down has occurred somewhere which
resulted in this misunderstanding.
I sincerely hope that this can be cleared up and we can begin to
make progress in this undertaking.

FOR RELEASE IMMED~ATELY
STATEMENT OF THE BOARD OF COMMIS S I ONERS
OF FULTON COUNTY
The repeated attacks by Mayor Al l en critici z ing the Fulton
Cou nty Government for f ~ ilure to develop a low-cost housing program
are unfort unate, unf air and unjustified.
They come at a time wh e n
City - County cooperation is at an all- time high and many j o i nt pro jects
are b e ing planned for the future by the two govern ments .
Low- cost ho u sing is largely a prob lem where masses of people
r e s ide.
In spi te o f t h a t, however, the Fulton County Commissioners
have on t wo occasi o n s , met with committe es from the Atlanta Housing
Au t hority and Atl an ta Chamber of Commerce.
It is a matter of re-
cord that at both t i mes, we t o l d these rep r e s e n ta t ive s tha ~ we
would like to cooperate . insofar as we could a n d t h at we certainly
had an open mind as far as low-cos t housing is concerned.
We asked
both groups to indicate areas where they thought public housing in
the County should be considered.
As yet, this has not been done.

Dear Mayor Allen:
I want to thank you for the intervie w on urban renewal which I had
with you during my recent visit to Atlanta over the Christmas holidays.
Your summary ·!Of w.l::a t urban renewal is a ccomplishing in Atlan'la am some of
the problems it is encountering is most helpful in my project on the history of the program.
I also appreciate the discussions I had with Mr. Sweat, Col. Jones, and
Mr. Satterfield and other staff of the Housing Authority. I have just finished ccnverting my notes to tape and find that these discussions, together
with the writt en materials furnished me, give me a current and comprehensive
view of the Atlanta urban renewal program.
Anyone who has been to Atlantaat d.if ferent t ime s over the l a st quarter
century, as I have, cannot fail to be impressed by the tremendous progress
that ha s been made in both the city's phJrsical and social development. The
priIIl2ry role that you have assigned to urban renewal is therefore most
gratifyills.
This i s particularly so in view of the atta cl{S which have been
leveled against the program in the last seve ral years.
The mos t r ecent is the chapter, "From Slum Clearance to Urban Renewal, 11
in the report of the National Commission on Urban Problems, whic h ha s just
been released. I understand that this chapter was written personally by
Senator ~ aul Dougl as, chairman of t he Commissicn. Unfortu nately Senator
Douglas ' s attack is based :in large part on a di storted and inaccurate
version of the l egislative history of the program. ~ conclusion is based
on the opinions of others mo participated in this history, my observations
over two decades of close participation in the legislative and policy development of the program, and the review of events leading to the original
enactment in 1949 which I have just concluded as part of my project.
Programs like t.ha t in Atlanta an:i the support they have frcm the
community are undoubtedly better answers to that kind of criticism than
any attempts I or others can make to straighten out the reoord. So
I wish you and your associates continued success in your new efforts
midl have ju st been announced.

The Atlant a Housing Author ity has for a long t ime been eag0r t o have the

Department, it develop s t hat they are equally eager t o supply these s ervices
t o t he citizens of Atl anta 1-1ho live in public housing.
'
From these con.ferences,it appears t hat t he only reason that such servi ces
are not supplied to t hese citizens is that· a -definition-of city- ser vices --has been made t hat prevent s City f unds f rom bei ng expended fo r t h.i.s purpose .
As you know, the At l anta Housing Author ity is prevent ed f r om supplying

by virt ue of where t hey l i ve . It i s our hope t hat thi s situation can be
.
corrected a t the earliest possible date since the At lanta Housing Authority,
i n cont r ast to most other pr operty 01-mers , has outdoor and indoor space ·
which can be made available for recreation purpopes a t no or l itt le cost to

Mr. R. Gregory Griggs

Atlanta, Georgia 30316
Dear Mr. Griggs :
Recently you asked Mr. Openshaw f or infonnation concerning the property
bounded by Georgia Avenue, Capitol Avenue, Bass Street, and Washington
Street. Approximately a half of this area is in the Rawson-Washington
Urban Fenewal Pro j ect, and the other half is in the 1969 clearance
area in the Model Cities portion of the Neighborhood Development Program.
If the Rawson-Washington Project is to close before December 31, 1969, the
sale of this land would take place through two simultaneous offerings.
Under the present approved land use, the land can only be used for commercial,
and would be offered in such a way that a Developer could bly'the entire
area with Crew Street to be closed, or buy either or both blocks to keep
Crew Street open. Under the Model Cities Land Use Plan, the block bounded
by Crew, Georgia, Capitol, and Bass is designated for park use, which is,
of course, public. If this portion of the area were to be used for public
purposes, amendments to each of the two Programs would be necessary.
In any event, the land would have to be appraised by two competent appraisers,
with a price to be concurred in by the Renewal Assistance Administration.
The appraisals would be the same for either commercial or public use,because
property to be sold for public purposes must be appraised at its highest and
best alternate use. We have not, of course, had appraisals made. Based on
our experience, our Real Estate people estimate that the price per sq. foot
would not be less than $3.00 or more than $5.00. Land for commercial uses
must be sold under competitive procedures. Land for public purposes, however, can be sold without advertisingo If the land were used as a park, the
price of the land would be eligible as a non-cash grant=in=aid credit to the
extent that the park served and supported the Project. If it were used for
office space, no credit would be available. If part were used for one purpose
�-2-
and part for another, the above provisions would apply. If the area
were to be a Park with temporary use for office space, the matter
would have to be negotiated with the Renewal Assistance Administration,
and probably receive Washington concurrence or approval.
It is my hope that this will clarify the questions you have. If not,
pl ease let me know and we will try to provide further information.
Sincerely yours,,:;?

Dear Mr. Satterfield:
This will refer to your letter of February 18, 1969, regarding the
establishment of Authority-paid special project police forces.
The Cooperation Agreement between the Atlanta Hou~~ng Authority and the
City of Atlanta states that the City shall fu~nish or cause to be furnished
to the Local Authority and the tenants of such projects public services and
facilities of the s ame character and to the same extent as are furnished
from time to time without cost or cha r g e to other dwelltng s and inhabitants
in the municipality.
This provision, of course, includes police service
and the City should therefore provide services required at the projects
to insure the safety of its residents.
This office does not approve funds to be used to provide protective services
as a matter of course.
Only where highly unusual circumstances existed have
we authorized funds to employ project police or security guards.
In such
rare instances, approval involved very small numbers of personnel and for
temporary periods of time.
At this tim e , we are not aware of circumsta nces in Atlanta which require
special prote ctive s e r v ic e s ov~ r a nd a bove tho s e pre s e ntly b e ing p r ovided
by the municipality und e r the provisions of the Cooperation Agr eeille nt.
Under no circumstanc e s would we be willing to approve an arrange ment which
in effect would r e pl a c e s e rvices which the City performs in accordance with
the Cooperation Agre ement.

Dear Dan:
Many thanks for sending me the applications
of those two college students. Unfortunately, I only
hire second-year law students during the summer, so
I am unable to help them.
If you hear of any exciting
law students I would very much appreciate knowing
about them.
You mentioned on the telephone the other day
your high regard for Les Persells. I would very much
like to hear the argument in favor o f his appointment
to succeed Satterfield. My own impression is very
st r ong that he is tied up so closely with present
policies a s to gravely diminish the chanc es for
signific a nt reform in the Housing Authority. My
opinion about his appointment has been sought by
a n umber of people .
I would like to he a r y our
comments in orde r tha t mine can be mor e intell i gent .

(6) The requested increase in administrative costs is also confusing. It is stated
that the present costs in this line item are ccmputP.d at the rate of $19, 800.00 per
month. Based on this rate, they arrive at a total cost (from April, 1969, to the
completion date of July, 1971--a period of 28 _months) of $L,43,L,00.00. With an unencumbered balance of $193,505, a net adjustment (increase ) of $360,900 is requested.
Based on the total cost as shown by AHA , the correct ne t adjustment would be $249 ,395;
however, $19,800 per month for 28 months gives a total cost of $554,400 which when
reduced by the unencumbered balance requires a net adjustment of $360,895--a difference
of $5 from their request o · Their ind icated total cost would cover a period of only
22.4 months, based on the rate given. This does not conform to the extension period
of ApriJ 1, 1969, through July, 1971.
Although two-thirds of the Surmnary of Changes could not be checked for verification
due to _the l ack of information from AHA, it is hoped that the above findin gs will
be helpful to you.

What Col. Jones is saying is that CRC doesn't do a very good job. From what I
know about it, I would agree with him . This responsibility used to be in the
Planning Department a nd as a result of somebody's efficiency study, it was
determined that this was a function that could best b e provided by the Housing
Authorityo The result has been that costs have sky-rocketed and their effectiveness
is questioned by about everybody. (They are asking $40, 000 from the City for
Fiscal 1970) .
They did do the relocation assistance work for persons displac e d as a result
of Highway Department acquisition in the city, but the Highway Department got
so dis enchanted that they went back to providing relocation assistance with their
own people.
We could call Les Per sells and Howard Grigsby over for a pep talk, but I
hone stly don't know what it would accomplish. I have n e ver heard them admit
that any improvement was neede d. They are usually pretty defensive about any
hint that it is not a perfect operation. While trying to work out budget problems
once in Finance, I made the suggestion that the City reassume this function.
I have dr afted the attached for your signature.

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr.
Chief Adrninistrati ve Officer
Mr. Tommy Hess, Manager of the Central City EOA Neighborhood
Center, under which the J. P. Stevens and Company temporary Relocation
Assistance Office is operating, informed me today that although the services
of Mrs. Hazel Johnston, the current Housing Authority Relocation Worker
with the Mill Village project, are highly satisfactory, however, much to his
disappointment, the Relocation Housing Office of the Housing Authority
(Mr. Howard Grisby) has not provided any lists of firms to contact, information
or assistance for relocating families in private enterprise rentals or sales
housing. Further that Mr. Grisby stated that his office keeps no information
on sources for relocation, other than Public Housing. Mr. Hess advises
that his s taff has had to refer exclusively to newspaper ads and direct contact
with Atlanta Real Estate Board to gather information on pas sible sources of
private rentals or sales and prevailing prices.
It was my understanding, when in 1964 the City contracted with the
Housing Authority to establish a Central Relocation Housing Office to perform
relocation services on a city-wide basis (in a ddition to Urban Renewal areas,
which responsibility they already had) for families displaced by Governmental
action, that they were to include a ll available sources of private enterprise
housing, in addition to Public Housing facilities. This is exactly what the
R e locatio~Housing Division of the Urban Renew al Department (only 3 people)
were doing when the city -wide relocation function was turned over to the
Housing Authority.
It certainly appears that the Central Relocation Housing Office of the
City should be up to date on and utilize a ll pas sible sources for relocation in
private enterprise developments, in addition to Public Housing.
�Mr. l.ian E. Sweat, Jr.
August 6, 1969
Page Two
Some time ago I sensed that the Housing Authority Relocation Housing
Office was relying too extensively on Public Housing only for relocation purposes.
I came to that conclusion when I found out that the Housing Relocations Office
did not have a list of low and moderate incom~ housing developments under the
low-income housing program. I asked Mr. Grisby about this at the time and he
told me that they did not have a list of the various projects shown in the HRC
periodic progress rep-orts, but that his staff knew pretty well which ones they
were and how to get in touch with them.
As a result of that experience, I then personnaly sent Mr. Satterfield
a complete list of all the low-income housing projects, explaini,ng that it was
for use by the Reloc ation Housing Office. Apparently that idea didn 1 t take.
Furthermore, the recent experience with the J. P. Stevens and
Company personnel indicates that the City 1 s contract with the Housing Authority
for operating a central relocation facility should provide not only utilization
of a ll sources of housing available, but
should also include relocation
assistance, when needed, for any reasons whatsoever, a nd not limited to
displacement by Governmental action only.

Malcolm D. Jones

have either been approvad for public housing or have located housing and
will be ~cving by August 31, 1969. This leaves the referral center with
a total of 15 families who have not been placed. It is felt that since
the referral center's hours have been extended, it will enable those
who have not been in to the center a better chance to get there and it
will enable center referral workers to get out into the community in

Very . good overall. Some technical material ove~ my head
but pointed out what I must learn as a city administrator.
Very good.
material.
High calibre instructors, good quality class
Program is thought-provoking rather than practical in most
respects.
Exposure to modern management decision making and
financial concepts valuable in making me aware of their
existence.
Good, with some minor e x ceptions re. scheduling and timing priorities not always clear.
Impressed with learning new concepts which can be ·used in
making management decisions. Material and structure both
·excellent.
Worthwhile, generally relevant.
Very stimulating .and worthwhile experience.

Outst anding , although perhaps too much material made available
f o r only 4 weeks.
Excellent.
I gaine d a new insight into the possible solutions
of many o f our problems .
This has be en the most useful and enriching four weeks of educational
experience in mY memory. M.I.T. des erves the highest praise
for venturing into this new program and I sha ll always b e proud
of my association with M.I.T . and this program.
Very good, well-balanced.

Broadening, stimulating, provocative with resulting insights
not b~fore possible.

and flexible attitude of staff.
I
I
Stimulating, broadly benef'icial as an introduction of application
of decision systems and technology to problems of cities.
Program content Was excellent, offering a wide exposure to
the yariety of disciplines represented by the group.
It provided a very good and most stimulating learning experience,
especially for a person like me who does not have the opportunity
of going back to school for a longer period.
Grateful for the opportunity.
I don't know of a better
investment of my time to enable me to help my organization.
I
Most stimulating and informative.
I believe M.I.T. is doing
a great service to local governments by providing such a
program.

Reactions to first week in Organization Behavior
Fabulous experience.
I'm very sensitive about people and our
T-group ,·sessions helped me calm down and get to know my fellow
executives better.
Irv Rubin - very fine.
A new experience for me.
Time well spent.
At first, I coultjn't tell what was happening. At end of
week it made some sense. Now I realize it has helped me
listen to the other guy.
Very helpful - (1) as a quick and deep development of community
among participants (2) as a t ra nsition between job and school
(3) as gene ra l learning experierice about self and group behavior.
At the time I felt too much time was being given to it; now I
feel that any less time would lose purpose of its objective.
It wili affect my job performance as much as any material received .
\
'
.
My reaction was mixed - it was a good way to break people from
the office setting , but was a whole week really necess ary?
I
A veI r y unusual and rewarding e x perience.
for l ~he next 3 weeks . .
Good preparation
• Terrific! La b provided essential unifying fact or for the
group.
Its effects could be observed thr ou ghout the following
3 weeks .
Cannot make up ·my mind whether one full week is best use of time
for a short program.
In a ny event, the "commu nity game" was
most effective and should be continue d.
I may change my mind later, but I think now other parts o f
program should b e given more time in place of lab.
,.
Trainers both good people, but I found my own grou p's
experience not particularly helpful f o r me. The "commu nity game"
simulation was, however, a benef icia l exericse.
My first reacti on was very negative. Now I believe it was the
most impo rtan t part o f the p rogra m.
More advance information
and r e ading would have greatly increased the value of the
week for me.
�'
.- , ,
··:~'
At first I didn't feel that it was worth 25% of the course;
th~n as the week developed I began to see the significance;
observing one member who missed the first week made me
realize '·even more how important it was. We should have
received, however, a clearer explanation in advance of what is
to be accomplished.

Session was helpful in personal sensitizing but went on for
t~o long.
This is a unique part of the program and should be retained.
Very meaningful and individually helpful. Group able to

I think its objectives
could be achie ved in 3-4 days, leaving time for a tour of the
city and l earning of its problems , re ading , etc.
Unfortunately, I was not here for t he first week.

Excellent.
In my opinion the first week's activities made
the rest of the time more effective.

�Additional Comments
I am very grateful for the opportunity of being of part of
the M.I.T. Urban Executive Program.
I
There may have been too much material offered for the length
o{ the program as given.
Faculty should be better communications
and more familiar with government material.
Good' mix of geographic areas and work responsibility of
participants. Should add more blacks, and involve people from
so·cia i service areas.
My thanks to all members of the staff for a job well done.
More faculty interest and exchange of agruments needed.
I
Special tribute to directors of program - willingness to shift
schedules and respond to group's interests.
Faculty sympathetic,
understanding, and giving of their time.
Should provide a larger selection of reference reading material.
Build into the program a tour o f Boston featuring those aspects
which instructors use as examples.
The cou rsework fills a great void in updat~ng urban management
skills and techniques. Please continue.
Cities are heartened that top-level institutions, such as M.I.T.,
are a·ware o f urban problems and concerned with assisting in
their solution. Thus, urban managers should be better equipped
to take a b roader view, and be more amenable to new approaches.
v
I want to express my appreciation to members of M.I.T. and
Endicott House staffs for making the se 4 weeks a memorable
and rewarding experience.
Your program 8ould be an excel lent instrument to promote and
expand cooperation among faculty members and interest them in
collaborative work related to u r ban problems.
Lower tuition to under $1,000, to avoid t e chnicaliti es in
obt aining approval for application.

more time on taxation theory and methods
urban dynamics received more attention than it deserved

�URBAN REDEVELOPMENT
PROTECTS THE FUTURE
OF YOUR INVESTMENT
In any Urban Redevelopment Area, no proposal can receive consideration that contemplates an unpermitted use. This assures good
neighbors and permanence of values. All
proposals must include a statement by the
developer showing financial responsibility
and capability to successfully complete the
proposed im"provements set forth in preliminary drawings and a narrative description.
These are carefully considered before a determination is made as to which proposal is
to be accepted. The Authority will accept
such proposals, if any, as it deems to be in
the public interest and in furtherance of the
purposes of the Georgia Redevelopment Law.
In evaluating the proposals, the Authority
will consider the compatability of the proposed development to other existing and
planned improvements in the area; .the excellence of the proposed design and the
quality of the overall planning of the proposed development; and the size of the
proposed development, particularly as it
relat es to effect on the tax digest. These
tracts are in a protect ed area-this is funda mental to the whole basic concept of Urban
Redevelopment.

In any Urban Redevelopment Area, no proposal
can receive consideration that contemplates an
unpermitted use. This assures good neighbors and
permanence of values. All proposals must include
a statement by the redeveloper showing financial
responsibility and capability to successfully complete the proposed improvements set forth in
preliminary drawings and a narrative description.
These are carefully considered before a determination is made as to which proposal is to be accepted . The Agency will accept such proposal, if any,
as it deems to be in the public interest and in
furth erance of the purposes of the Georgia Redevelopm ent Law; however, no proposal for purchase at a pr ice less than th e established minimum
price will be considered. In eva luating the proposals, the Agency will consider the proposed
price to be paid for the land; the compatibility
of the proposed developm ent to other existing
and planned improvements in the area; the excellence of the proposed des ign and the quality
of the overall planning of the proposed development; and the size of the proposed development,
particularly as it relates to effect on th e tax digest.
