Operative words: How COMMUNITY LAND TRUSTS Are Reinventing America. Let’s get to the root cause of the HOUSING AFFORDABILITY issue and examine a systemic solution!

Discussion based on “Democratic by Design: How Carsharing, Co-ops and Community Land Trusts Are Reinventing America” by urban planner Gabriel Metcalf, Executive Director of SPUR in San Franscisco.

Portland Tribune and KGW are doing a series on Shut Out of homeownership. Housing affordability is a major topic in nearly every media outlet as well as old, established organizations such as City Club and 1000 Friends of Oregon. New housing groups like Portland Tenants United are on the ascendancy.

“In Democratic by Design, Gabriel Metcalf sketches out a strategy that starts with small-scale, living examples of a better society that can ultimately scale up to widespread social transformation. . . .can be the crucial spark for a broad new progressive movement.”
