Welcome to History Hub
Is this what you are referring to?....https://www.gvnews.com/news/east-center-pool-remains-empty-its-future-uncertain/article_6f6cb8b4-f237-11ea-9dc8-032d3806…
Above is the contact information for the Arizona Hud Field office...Have you spoken to them?
Alice, thank you for responding so quickly. I really appreciate it. The article in the GV News, which you attached, is the property that we need answers for. I have not contacted Stephanie Smelnick yet. I did find her name to use as a contact, after business hours last Friday. But, thought that I would try the History Hub also. There are several of us trying to research this however, I am the only one with a background working with HUD and an understanding of their CFR's. I will be making an attempt to contact Ms. Smelnick today or tomorrow. If there is anything that you find from the 1960-70's, please let me know. Once again, thank you.
Dear Ms. Griffin,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
