DIGEST OF S. 3640

Title I of the act recognizes the need for a national urbanization policy and specifically outlines the purposes of this policy. A Council on Urban Growth is created within the Executive Office of the President to prepare a biennial Report on Urban Growth, to collect, analyze and evaluate relevant information. to assess the effects of Federal programs on urban growth, and to assess other public and private efforts to create rational urban growth. The report shall include significant problems encountered as a result of urban growth trends and developments, a review of existing programs and efforts, and recommendations for future programs and policies.

Title II, the Development of New Communities, encourages public and private bodies to undertake community growth and development programs, including the development of new communities, satellite communities, accelerated growth centers, new towns-in-town, and other large scale urban development. The Community Development Corporation is established and authorized to extend finan. cial assistance through loans to eligible developers for feasibility studies, planning, land acquisition and development, construction of essential public works and facilities, and necessary commercial and industrial areas. The Corporation may also provide public service grants for the staffing of essential public facilities and services. Any development undertaken under this title must be economically feasible and must contribute to the orderly growth and development of the area. The developer must provide a sound internal development plan which is consistent with any comprehensive planning in the area and which has received all necessary governmental approvals. The new community guarantee program authorized by Title IV of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 is transferred to the Corporation. The Community Development Corporation, as a government corporation within the Department of Housing and Urban Development, is authorized to establish a Community Development Fund, carry out demonstration programs and advise on the compatability of any major Federal installation with the provisions of this act.

Title III provides for inner city development to augment the inventory of housing and essential public services through more rational use of urban land and space. Title I of the Housing Act of 1949 is amended to permit the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to make financial assistance available to local public agencies for rebuilding projects on land which is currently occupied by functionally obsolete or uneconomic uses or which is curently unusable because of natural hazards or inadequate development, though not necessarily "blighted". Grants under this title shall be available for feasibility studies, plan. ning and developing the project, and the acquisition and preparation of land and space.

Title IV, Assistance Planning for State and Regional Growth and Stabilization, amends section 701 of the Housing Act of 1954 to provide grants to States, regional bodies, State boundary commissions and municipal incorporation control agencies to assist in financing the cost of conducting population growth and urban development planning programs. In addition this title provides technical assistance to State and regional agencies engaged in land-use planning and authorizes grants to enable such agencies to purchase open land surrounding urban and metropolitan areas to insure proper growth and development.

Title V of this act includes general provisions relating to relocation requirements and payments, housing priorities for programs assisted, requirements for the utilization of new and improved construction methods and techniques, and advance consent to interstate compacts for mutual assistance in carrying out the objectives of the Act.
