Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Michael:

May I acknowledge receipt of your letter of March 3lst,
and apologise for not having tendered you an answer sooner.

I sincerelyhhope that you realize that the housing efforts

of the City of Atlanta must be directed for the benefit of
the people of Atlanta first. Every reasonable caution must
be taken to see that Atlanta citizens be given priority in the
use of this wubsidized housing.

i further sincerely hope that you will recognize that the
City of Atlanta must protect itself and its people from
constant encroachment by other political subdivisions in
their efforts to force their poor into the city.

I certainly do support reasonable residential requirements,
and I sincerely hope that you are not going to create an issue
over this matter purely to have an issue.


Ivan Allen, Jr.
