Barton Elected to DeKalb Perimeter CID Board
John V. Barton II, senior vice president and managing director of Parkway Properties, Inc., has been elected to the Board of the Central (DeKalb) Perimeter Community Improvement District.
The Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs), composed of both the Central (DeKalb) and Fulton Perimeter CIDs, are special areas established by the legislature where commercial property owners voluntarily pay additional property taxes to help make transportation and other infrastructure improvements.
DeKalb PCID Board Chair John Heagy noted, "John Barton will certainly bring a unique perspective to our board given his experience with other high quality mixed use markets around the country."
"John represents one of Atlanta's premier Class A office owners and brings a wealth of experience to the board," said Bob Voyles, immediate past chair of the DeKalb PCID Board and one of the organization's founders.
"We are honored to have John on the DeKalb PICD Board," said PCIDs President and CEO Yvonne Williams. "He will be an asset on the leadership team as we undertake major initiatives next year."
Barton serves as managing director for Parkway's portfolios in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Nashville, Memphis and Jackson, Miss., which comprise approximately 8.3 million rentable square feet of wholly owned, joint venture and third-party office buildings.
In the DeKalb Perimeter market, Parkway owns and manages the 17-story Ravinia Two office building off Ashford Dunwoody Road containing 437,846-square-feet of space. CID Board members are required by law to own or represent the owner of commercial property within the defined geographic district.
Barton has 17 years of commercial real estate experience. He and his leasing teams have consummated several million rentable square feet of leases including AutoTrader and Cox Communications in the Perimeter market.
