Robertson rolls in greenways face lifts

by

It was a very green month for Tiger Management chief Julian Robertson. For starters, residents of Salisbury, North Carolina will see their streets and greenways get a face lift along the Interstate-85 Corridor, thanks to a sizable gift from the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation.

The Tiger Management head, himself a native of North Carolina, will be funding the greenway project through a $40,000 gift from the foundation that bears the name of his mother and father. The gift augments some $290,000 given by other foundations and philanthropists aimed at making the municipal face-lift look more cheery
