This Committee submitted a report on policies and operation of the Housing Authority of Portland (HAP) that was approved by the members in April, 1966. On October 31, 1966, the Committee was reactivated by the Board of Governors to consider a controversy that had arisen over a proposal by HAP to construct a new 70-unit public housing project on Southwest Vermont Street near 26th Avenue in the Hillsdale area (the Hillsdale site). Lawrence S. Black, who was a member of the original committee, was unable to participate in the investigation and preparation of this report; all other committee members have done so. Since its reactivation the Committee has met weekly through November and December, 1966, and part of January, 1967, and has attended the hearings, interviewed the witnesses and examined the material described in the attached Exhibit A. The following report is based upon these investigations.
