Brooks Pierce attorney Patrick Johnson was appointed to the Redevelopment Commission of Greensboro (“RCG”) by the Greensboro City Council. His five-year term began April 1.
The five-member RCG conducts studies, formulates plans and carries through redevelopment projects for blighted areas in the City of Greensboro. The RCG is authorized to implement redevelopment within the city through various undertakings including the acquisition and disposition of real estate, provision of relocation payment and assistance in accordance with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policy Act, and compliance with North Carolina Urban Redevelopment Law. It is established under and regulated by North Carolina’s General Statutes and the Greensboro Development Ordinance, and operates according to the city’s policies, Community Development Block grant applications and programs, and plans for locally funded redevelopment projects.
“I am honored to be appointed to the Redevelopment Commission and am looking forward to collaborating with the other members in an effort to continue the important work with which the commission has been tasked,” said Johnson.
Johnson focuses his practice in commercial real estate and represents buyers, sellers, developers, tenants and lenders in the structuring, acquisition, construction, leasing, financing and sale of commercial developments.
