Those vrtio gi\ e q broad inter ?»t»retatiQn to the Supreme Court " ^ruling say tbe public hou^mgl ' discrimination found in Chicago' t_--.^ls typical of most big cities Ths :v!ew.; holds that HUD's re ' Kponse to the ruling is crucial j to determining the case's - \ I nificance ' " m The narrow interpretation is ~that HUD's pav-eip. are limited - v and "/Chicago circumstances are) unique and thus the national ·=-= x -Impact of the decision \\ould be ICQ based on zoning laws: oane lliinks zoning laws.are linerahie to attack in court it ey are used as tools of dis- iminalion. , Q. So that : - will decide the issue once and tor all? A. -Not · necessarily. F.ven if the court · rules in Arlington Heights' favor and undermines HUD's authority, Iho federal government has other low-income housing programs,that involve federal money -going .to local housing authorities. HUD ladled out $2.55 billion to. 3,000 localcommimHics hist year for such development projects and will sjinnd $2.8 -billion this year. HUD is supposed to require communities -- cities and suburbs -- receiving the funds to stipulate in advance what the low-income housing needs of the communities are and how officials are responding. 'A court decision earlier this year involving Hartford, Conn., tand ils suburbs even . blocked distribution of federal money to the suburbs on the grounds rhat HUD hadn't been tough enough. HUD has since revised its procedures and now even loimei; critic Sloane is satisfied. """ But ad\ocates^ol"both vicusl Kay any eJoubJs should be I cleared up by a v case set for argument before the bnpremc Court this fdll A developei has challenged the right of Arhng ton Heights, 111 , a Chicago sub ] urb to use zoning laws to e\ elude a low income federallj subsidized housing project if the effect is to maintain tbe virtually all white character of the suburb. ' ' Here, in question and answer form, is how anabsts uew the Tuesday'decision. Q t What d id the Supreme Court case involve? A. In response to a' 1966 suit by Dorothy Gautreaux and five other black public Housing' ten ants or applicants., the federal courts had already found the Chic ago ^-Housing Authority and ^^HUD guilty of discrimination m |*·*""·*· selection of sites and tenants to ;_J-£*.keep public housing out 'oi fc -?S white neighborhoods of the city * *·* Mrs Gautreaux and the other i;-.plaintiffs asked that the city !}* " and HUD be forced to draw up !· "^a metropolitan area housing 1 t-C-jplan distributing public hous- t?;£f^Sng The District Court refused '"·^The Court of Appeals re\ersed VC^Hhe lower court and th« Su .C^fcreme Court, f by a ,8 fo O^yolc, · ^agreed with' the a0peals court, I Q W Ij a t did the Supreme I Court 0*0? , I A The justices told tbe lower , court it may impost* metropoli Ian remedies [houghs the specific remedies \vere left to the lower court and HUD to" wrk out. Q Docs that mean the Chi cago suburbs now will have to put up puiilic housing projec-ts' A Maybe jes. Maybe no It 'depends on what the Dislnct Court and HUD do m» The court was not told it must im poiu a metropolitan remedy The Supreme Court said only lhat such a remedy is within the lower court's power With both sides able to appeal the lower court's eventual decision, it could take years for the'case (o be resolied Q So was the decision a signili .cant one 7 : A That depends on whom you talk to Edward Rutledge, enccial assistant to the statt di rector at the U S Civil Rights Commission, calls the Gaul rcyux case a landmark. Martin Eloane, general counsel for tbe National Committee. Against Discrimination in Housing, says It can be a crucial factor in opening up the suburbs. and thus better housing and job op portumlies to minorities Arthur Gang, assoc.nte general counsel at HUD, calls the issue involved a very narrow tcchni cal one but still one with a pos tibly broad impac 1 Jerome G Rose, a professor of urban planning at Rutgers University, calls the decision a very Il-nit ed one with lillle impact on the cation's suburbs Q Why the divergence of opinion'' A The answer depends basically on two questions Is Chicago typical of other major cilies as far as this case is con cernecl? Piven if Chicago is typical, whnl can !!ie federal government cto about il? · o. What can the .government 'do under the. metropolitan approach? ; . A Sloane thinks It can do plenty. Under the 1974 Housing Act- amendments. .HUD can contract with' builders on its own fo put up low-income pro)- etls..wherever, the.,«g«icy .determines. Bclore, HUD had to work through local, authorities. The agency is required lo some extent to consult \yith the local governments (irst, :but Sloane feels there's nothing a local government can do to stop Q. You mean the local governments are powerless? ' - A They do have Ihcir zoning tows and could tight' a ; H U D move on Ihosc grounds But the possible success of such action \s in dispute right now.
