TITLE: Community Land Trusts: A Viable Path for Housing Preservation in New Orleans
WHEN: February 12, 2014 8:30 am
WHERE: Dillard University
WHO: Van Temple, Executive Director, Crescent City Community Land Trust; Nancy Stangle, Emierita Director, Athens Land Trust; Beth Sorce, Community & Capacity Building Manager, National CLT Network; John Debreuil, Attorney and Board Member, Northshore Housing Initiative
ABOUT: With recovery in New Orleans continuing at a rapid pace, maintaining a viable stock of affordable housing for our working class residents is becoming harder and harder due to the rising costs of renting and buying a home. Community land trusts have been successfully implemented in other cities across the country as a method to combat this problem. However, CLTs are just getting off the ground in New Orleans and many of real estate professionals are unfamiliar with the specifics of how they will work here.
