The Land Bank Plan
This plan was drafted by MWCLT staff with input from local community members and national experts.
Individual meetings and group meetings were held between staff and multiple community representatives to answer questions about the land bank and to gather input for this plan. These stakeholders will continue to aid MWCLT as it develops a more comprehensive strategy for public engagement over the next year.
MWCLT board members and staff have consulted with both the Grounded Solutions Network and Center for Community Progress, two national organizations with expertise in community land trusts and land banking, respectively. Technical assistance from both entities will continue to be valuable as MWCLT begins operations as the first combined CLT and land bank in the United States.
