Town of Davidson Hires First Housing and Equity Director

Eugene Bradley

The Town of Davidson announces the hiring of Eugene L. Bradley as the town’s first Housing and Equity Director. In this key position, Eugene will lead the town’s affordable housing and racial equity programs. This role will be responsible for developing and implementing affordable housing strategies as well as a racial equity action plan. In addition to developing overall strategies for affordable housing and racial equity, Eugene will be responsible for working with and providing information to individuals who wish to rent or purchase affordable homes, organizations that support affordable housing, and developers who build affordable housing.

With extensive experience, Eugene comes to the Town of Davidson after most recently serving as the City of Charlotte’s Aviation Department Community Affairs Manager where he was responsible for increasing CLT Airport’s presence and partnerships with the surrounding businesses, neighborhoods, and community organizations. Eugene has over 16 years of public sector planning and implementation experience in the fields of neighborhood revitalization, community development, “placemaking” and land use planning. Since 2008, Eugene has worked with the City of Charlotte – including 12 years with the Charlotte Department of Housing & Neighborhood Services as a Community Engagement Manager with a focus on community engagement, housing and plan implementation.   

The new Housing and Equity Director position was identified by the Davidson Board of Commissioners and the town’s management team at the board retreat in early 2020 as a crucial component to Davidson’s strategic plan and the much-needed work in the areas of equity, inclusion, and affordable housing. Town Manager Jamie Justice remarks, “We are excited about welcoming Eugene to the Town of Davidson. We know that he will help us to build upon the critical work we’ve been doing in the affordable housing space, and help us create the kind of racial equity programming and racial equity plan that will move this community forward.” 

Eugene began his role on Monday, October 26, 2020 and was welcomed at the Davidson Board of Commissioners meeting last night. He may be reached at ebradley@townofdavidson.org
