In an op-ed published by the Charleston Post and Courier, partner Eli Poliakoff discusses the importance of community partnerships to address local housing issues.
“The Charleston Redevelopment Corporation and the Palmetto Community Land Trust alone cannot create sufficient affordable housing. Stakeholders throughout the community still need to get involved in ways large and small. It will take a collective and sustained effort. The corporation and the land trust’s efforts are examples of concrete steps taken by public and private partners to help address one of Charleston’s great challenges in new and collaborative ways,” he writes.
Nelson Mullins Charleston office attorneys have provided contributions, in both time and pro bono legal services, for the Charleston Redevelopment Corporation. Poliakoff is a mayoral appointee and currently serves as chair of the CRC Board. Charleston partner Jay Claypoole has provided real estate pro bono services for the CRC’s activities.
