Community + Land + Trust: Tools for Development without Displacement
Join us for the release of Baltimore Housing Roundtable’s new report:
Community + Land + Trust:
Tools for Development without Displacement
Community + Land + Trust describes how Baltimore’s development policies have failed to create affordable housing and good paying jobs for low-income residents and offers an alternative vision that prioritizes human rights and human needs. The creation of community land trusts and a renewed vacant housing initiative will create neighborhood-based institutions to drive development, employ city residents, and create permanently affordable housing that is equitable and inclusive.
Harry Smith, Director of Sustainable Economic Development & Dudley Neighbors, Inc., will speak on a successful land trust development in Boston.
Please join us to explore innovative approaches to Baltimore’s development challenges, learn from area experts, and enjoy a light lunch reception!
