The book Saint Paul Housing Project: A Plan for Slum Clearance and Low Cost Housing, details a proposal for slum clearance and the creation of low cost rental housing at the future site of the Mt. Airy Homes development, an area now bordered by University Avenue to the South, Highway 35E to the East, Pennsylvania Avenue to the North, and Jackson Street to the West. The Mt. Airy Housing Project was spearheaded by the St. Paul City Planning Board, Mr. George Herrold, the City's Engineer and coordinator of the information presented in the book, and the individual members of the Citizens Housing Committee, the group that sponsored and approved the project. The Citizens Housing Committee, which included many of the community's leading citizens of the day, was charged with the goal of developing a space that would specifically address the affordable housing needs of future low-income populations, as well as the City's changing landscape. Two pages of introductory text describe the nature of the project, site selection and district selection, current real estate balance at the time, the development itself, outside housing influences, costs, and personnel. Twenty-one pages of printed maps of the City of St. Paul provide detail on census enumeration districts, relief cases, tuberculosis cases, delinquency rates, land values, comparative incomes, and comparative rent. The maps were all created in March 1934, however the information they depict ranges from 1928 to 1935. Four of the maps focus solely on the future Mt. Airy development and feature plans for street layout and housing. The book also includes three pages of charts highlighting comparative conditions of blight, building permit and vacancy statistics, and land values for the past fifty years. A five-page section entitled Mt. Airy Housing Project Property Listing, dated April 1934, provides detailed information on the ownership, value, and tax history of the properties located on the site before development.
