The Hill CDC began researching and analyzing the concept of the Community Land Trusts (CLT) in February 2014, primarily as a response to the proposed land bank legislation. Affordable housing was already a priority of the Greater Hill District community, but with the introduction of land bank legislation, the Hill CDC recognized the urgency of exploring concepts and practices that could create systems of permanent affordability and displacement prevention.

The CLT Exploratory Committee consists of Greater Hill District organizations and community leaders, as well as representatives from public and non-profit agencies throughout the city.  The Community Land Trust (CLT) Exploratory Committee analyzes and discusses models, concepts and applications of CLTs. The Exploratory Committee advises on feasibility; analyzes local housing data to assess applicability; identifies all opportunities and any obstacles that could potentially arise. 

The Committee completed its work and a final plan was published.  The final plan and other process documents can be downloaded by clicking the links below. | 412-765-1820 |
