Community land trusts bring affordability home

Affordable housing advocates in Sitka are looking at a new strategy for leveling the market for low- and middle-income home buyers. Community Land Trusts have been around for about thirty years in the US, but are only recently getting traction in Alaska.

Michael Brown is a Community Land Trust consultant with Burlington Associates, who met with Sitka’s municipal government at the firehall on Tuesday (12-18-12) evening, and spoke to the Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday.

He also appeared on KCAW’s Morning Interview, where he explained the rationale for creating community land trusts.
