On July 22, we held an orientation meeting to inform people in our community about the community land trust model and the goals that we’re looking to accomplish together.
Ten people came to the program and learned more of the detailed workings of a Community Land Trust — including some DVD clips about two other CLTs. Also discussed were the ways in which MCLT is a participatory democratic organization, where members are encouraged to be part of it according to their interests. We looked at how committees will function and talked about program activities going forward. Everybody who came out agreed – Portland needs more affordable ownership housing!
Any organization that would like MCLT to make a presentation should contact us, and we’ll be glad to schedule a presentation with your group or organization.
