Community + Land + Trust: Tools for Development without Displacement

University of Maryland School of Social Work Auditorium

525 W Redwood St

Baltimore , MD 21201

United States

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.

NESRI is a founding member of the Baltimore Housing Roundtable, and NESRI staff co-wrote and produced this report.

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! Click here to RSVP.
