State Awards Reidsville $1.65 Million for Infrastructure for 37-Home Private Development

The City of Reidsville is one of five local governments to be awarded state funding this week for Rural Workforce Housing initiatives.

The announcement came from Governor Kemp’s office on Thursday, which said the money is awarded to communities that “demonstrated strong collaboration between communities and real estate developers.”

From the press release:

The City of Reidsville will receive $1,650,351 to construct necessary water, road, drainage, and sewer infrastructure improvements for the 14-acre Pine Ridge Subdivision that will support 37 new single-family homes built by Catch 22 Properties. The City of Reidsville is contributing to the total infrastructure cost of $1,690,351 with the development partner covering any project cost overage.

According to the Georgia Secretary of State, Catch 22 Properties, LLC was incorporated in February 2021. It is a private entity which owns 29 properties in Bulloch County.

The property in Reidsville is located on Highway 280. It was purchased by Myers Place, LLC, which lists Jay Swindell and Lew Graham as its Organizers, in 2021 for $140,000. While the Tattnall County Tax Assessor website names Catch 22 Properties LLC as the owner of the property, it does not reflect when it was sold to Catch 22 Properties, LLC.

This project comes at no cost to the developer unless the project runs over cost.
