dc.description.abstract The rational for a rehabilitation program in an older part of the city is: 1. in considering an established part of the city, one must retain that which is good and eliminate that which is bad. This is not only part of the chemistry of change but also an economic consideration in that it is cheaper to maintain than to let deteriorate and replace. 2. the houses have been well-built and with repair and maintenance, their life-span can be extended. 3. by spending $2,500 - $6800 on a house, we can provide adequate accomodation which would have not been available or have disappeared and had to have been replaced by a new $12,000 unit - it is low-cost housing. 4. we must retain and strengthen that which is old, so it can better accept the new. en_US
