Kenneth R. Johnson
The Port Authority's President and Chief Executive Officer has more than 35 years of experience in working with business and government in the area of economic and community development. A University of Minnesota graduate, Johnson began his development career with the City of Duluth in 1969. He held several positions in housing finance and economic development.
Johnson's Saint Paul experience began in 1982 when he became Director of the Housing Division of the City's Department of Planning and Economic Development (PED). There he helped to assess the city's housing market needs and worked with the business community to create, finance, and deliver housing-finance and real-estate products and services.
In 1987, Mayor George Latimer named Johnson Director of PED, a 150-member organization. As Director, Johnson helped create and implement numerous business and real estate growth projects. He also participated in housing finance and production, job creation and tax-base expansion, neighborhood redevelopment, policy planning and land-use regulation.
Johnson joined the Port in 1990 as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. In August 1991, he was named President and Chief Executive Officer.

CERTIORARI TO THE SUPREME COURT OF CONNECTICUT
After approving an integrated development plan designed to revitalize its ailing economy, respondent city, through its development agent, purchased most of the property earmarked for the project from willing sellers, but initiated condemnation proceedings when petitioners, the owners of the rest of the property, refused to sell. Petitioners brought this state-court action claiming, inter alia, that the taking of their properties would violate the “public use” restriction in theFifth Amendment’s Takings Clause. The trial court granted a permanent restraining order prohibiting the taking of the some of the properties, but denying relief as to others. Relying on cases such as Hawaii Housing Authority v. Midkiff, 467 U.S. 229, and Berman v. Parker, 348 U.S. 26, the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed in part and reversed in part, upholding all of the proposed takings.
Held: The city’s proposed disposition of petitioners’ property qualifies as a “public use” within the meaning of the Takings Clause. Pp. 6—20.
(a) Though the city could not take petitioners’ land simply to confer a private benefit on a particular private party, see, e.g., Midkiff, 467 U.S., at 245, the takings at issue here would be executed pursuant to a carefully considered development plan, which was not adopted “to benefit a particular class of identifiable individuals,” ibid. Moreover, while the city is not planning to open the condemned land–at least not in its entirety–to use by the general public, this “Court long ago rejected any literal requirement that condemned property be put into use for the … public.” Id., at 244. Rather, it has embraced the broader and more natural interpretation of public use as “public purpose.” See, e.g., Fallbrook Irrigation Dist. v. Bradley,164 U.S. 112, 158—164. Without exception, the Court has defined that concept broadly, reflecting its longstanding policy of deference to legislative judgments as to what public needs justify the use of the takings power. Berman, 348 U.S. 26; Midkiff, 467 U.S. 229; Ruckelshaus v. Monsanto Co., 467 U.S. 986.
