Any housing authority established pursuant to Article 1 of Chapter 3 of this title,
the “Housing Authorities Law,” is authorized to prepare or cause to be prepared redevelopment
plans and to undertake redevelopment projects within its area of operation, in accordance
with this chapter. In undertaking such redevelopment projects, a housing authority shall have all the
rights, powers, privileges, and immunities that such authority has under Article 1
of Chapter 3 of this title, the “Housing Authorities Law,” and any other provision
of law relating to slum clearance and housing projects for persons of low income,
including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the power to make and
execute contracts, to issue bonds and other obligations and give security therefor,
to acquire real property by eminent domain or purchase, and to do any and all things
necessary to carry out projects in the same manner as though all of the provisions
of law applicable to slum clearance and housing projects were applicable to redevelopment
projects undertaken under this chapter, provided that nothing contained in Code Sections 8-3-11 and 8-3-12 shall be construed as limiting the power of an authority, in the event of a default
by a purchaser or lessee of land in a redevelopment plan, to acquire property and
operate it free from the restrictions contained in said Code sections.
