How did a taxpayer funded, 40 year, zero interest loan for the Bessemer Center get done?

City staff members said the loan is risky.

The city would be the second lien holder,
meaning the bank would get paid first if the project failed.

And if the city already has more than $1 million invested in the property
in redevelopment work done so far.

“It’s a hard-to-develop area,” City Manager Rashad Young said.

“Council has to make a decision
about what level of risk they are willing to accept to move forward.”

Carr-Powell Properties LLC is George Carr of Beacon Management Corp.
and Vernon Powell of Sabre Capital of GSO.

East Market Street Development Corp.
has utilized federal, state and local funding sources
while Carr-Powell Properties has
“significant experience with private market financing.”

If Zack Matheny served on Greensboro’s Zoning Commission
when his campaign first filed on March 3, 2007,
and continued to serve through the 2007 election,
should his campaign have accepted almost $20,000 from Real Estate Interests,
many of whom had, did and or intend to present Zoning issues
before the Commission or City Council?

When buying and selling are controlled by legislation,
the first thing to be bought and sold are legislators.
