Land Control Tool Trainings
The conference will focus on three land control tools that have proven to be effective tools in producing land use decisions that substantially benefit low-income communities of color: community land trusts inclusionary zoning ordinances, and community benefit agreements.
All participants will attend introductory workshop on each of the tools. Participants will choose one tool to learn about in a full-day training session on the second day of the convening. Participants will register for the all day land control training sessions when they register for the conference. Registration in each workshop is limited to 34 participants. Cities and organizations are encouraged to send teams of three to attend the conference to ensure full coverage of the workshops.
The training teams for each land control tool are:
- Community Land Trusts: May Louie of Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative and John Davis of Burlington Associates
- Inclusionary Zoning: Alan Mallach of the National Housing Institute and Nico Calavita of San Diego State University
- Community Benefits Agreements: Madeline Janis Aparicio and Maria Loya of Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, Laura Wolf Powers, Brad Lander and Wendy Fleischer of the Pratt Center for Community Development.
