Overview

In this session, members will learn about an affordable housing tool used in neighborhood redevelopment. In 2003, Lexington-Fayette County Government with EHI Consultants developed the Southend Park Urban Village Plan as way to mitigate the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the proposed Newtown Pike Extension Project. The plan recommended an innovative implementation tool known as Community Land Trust to create a diverse, and permanent affordable solution for the neighborhood allowing residents impacted by the project to move back into the redeveloped neighborhood.

Today, road construction is nearly complete along with a portion of the neighborhood and the Lexington Community Land Trust is fully established.  The session will focus on the organization and development of CLTs and how they can be used in other types of planning processes and community projects. CLTs have become an increasingly popular affordable housing tool for many cities, especially those where low-income communities are at risk of displacement and/or have limited access to homeownership.
