Community Land Trusts – A Route to Affordable Housing?

Rising costs for land are a significant factor in the high cost of housing. Buying the house, and not the land underneath it, would reduce costs for homeowners and renters.

Community land trusts acquire and hold land for the benefit of the local community. The speaker evaluates the merits of using community land trusts to make housing cheaper and more accessible.

    Great presentation. The speaker really knew his subject and gave plenty of time for Q&A, with lively and informed discussion. The idea that we could provide community-oriented affordable housing in a way that is sustainable and better than simple block grants and other handout-type solutions is especially appealing, as it should appeal to both small government types and to social justice believers. CLTs require hand-on work with neighbors, mutual housing associations, and members of Land Trust boards; they require commitment. But if one is willing to put in the time and effort, city governments can be persuaded.
