A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a blended land ownership model. It secures socio-economic and environmental goals through non-profit ownership of the land and leasing it back to private owners or organizations focused on community benefit. Affordability and other goals are built into the lease creating a powerful and balanced means of blending private and community benefits.
This unique land tenure model has proven itself to actually increase housing affordability over time, both for rentals and owner occupied housing. This workshop will elevate these applications as a priority. In addition, CLTs have several other applications. Two will be touched on in this workshop – how it can be used to facilitate the transfer of land to a new generation of ecologically conscious young farmers or foresters, and the provision of affordable workspaces.
Sound interesting and relevant? We hope so. Come and spend 5 hours engaging with Michael Lewis, who is one of the most knowledgeable speakers in Canada on CLT’s.
