for turning an initial $5 million investment from the

"The transfer (of the deed) - whether by lease or purchase
~ is the transfer of a $100 miUion business," said
Archia, who said that he not only represented Green, but
voiced the sentiments of black citizens throughout Forsyth
Archia also asked the commissionefs if the hospital
reorganization, which becomes effective Jan. 1, will continue
to guarantee health care for the county's poor,

The Roundtable has, however, expressed skepticism
about several aspects of the package, and is not satisfied
that the city is doing enough to meet its housing needs. I
Of the $35 million earmarked for use inthe package,_l
the city is requesting $23 million and the county another
$12 million - $7.5 million to partially finance the 1
reorganization of the city-county schools and $4.5
million for the expansion of Forsyth Technical Institute.
The city would use the majority of its portion, $15
million, to expand the Benton Convention Center to attract
more visitors. The rest would be used to "finance an
industrial park," arrnrriing tn a brochure distributed by
the pro-referendum Citizens' Committee For Jobs And
Education Referendum, "that could create 4,000 new
jobs, ... significant downtown improvements to draw in
provements for neighborhoods adjacent to downtown."
What's missing, says White, is a plan that addresses the
city's housing needs.
