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.
