About David Johnson
My name is David Johnson and I started my primary business, Cypress Properties in Cedar Park in 1983. Of the 33 years, I have been doing business in Cedar Park I lived in the city for 10 years.
In 1997 I bought 6.4 acres of land on E. Whitestone Blvd. (FM 1431) across the street from the Cedar Park post office. At the time the post office was the only building east of the railroad tracks on 1431. Over the next 7 years I developed what you know today as The Railyard Shopping Center. I still own, operate and office in The Railyard. I have a history of leasing to mom and pop businesses, when no one else would and as a result many successful businesses have been incubated at The Railyard and still call it home. We are home to 29 businesses including Cedar Park Jewelry, C. R. Surf & Turf and Whitestone Brewery.
I am just as concerned as anyone about the long term viability of Cedar Park neighborhoods, it’s economic base, and business community. I also believe in property rights and market driven demand based on economics vs emotion based decisions. I want my tenants to be successful so they can pay their rent and after I pay the mortgage, taxes, insurance and other operating expenses… hopefully make a profit.
Over the years I have donated hundreds if not thousands of hours in volunteer time to the Cedar Park community. I was on the Chamber of Commerce board for 7 years and President in 1990. I was the founding president of the Rotary Club of Cedar Park. I served on the Library Foundation board for 4 years and helped raise tens of thousands of dollars as well as personally been a major contributor to the Library Foundation. I have donated space to the Cedar Park Police Dept. 3 different years for Operation Blue Santa, and have also been a major contributor to the Cedar Park Veterans Memorial. I have served on numerous boards and commissions appointed by the City Council.
