GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Developers have contacted Greensboro's Redevelopment Commission in reference to the 1.5-acre lot on the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Douglas Street.

Councilman Jamal Fox said the lot has been vacant for about 20 years and said he is excited that a developer has come forth willing to pay for the property.

Thursday at 7:30 p.m., the city is holding a community meeting at 414 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive to discuss what type of development the community would like to be built.

The name of the developer and cost has not yet been released.

    Let’s hope not another corner curb mart. That area is a complete infestation. You can’t drive thru the area w/o hitting a “working girl (and/or man it seems sometimes) or some 15-20 yr old thug standing in the middle of the street or the other curb mart waiving cars down.

    I think they got it wrong, instead of developing that 1.5 acre lot, they should un develop the surrounding lots for the entire area and start fresh. Obviously the community doesn’t want to make it better, the police sure ain’t making an impact with the 10 patrol cars you see zipping up and down MLK all the time.
