CLT Workgroup and City Council Work Study Session, 2016
In September and October 2016, members of THRIVE led the first 3 City Workgroup sessions on the community land trust model. Councilman David Benavides convened this Workgroup to learn more about the CLT model and explore opportunities to implement the CLT model in Santa Ana, bringing together City Staff and local partners. THRIVE also prepared a presentation for the City Council Development and Transportation Committee, outlining lessons from the Workgroup including the growth of CLTs in the United States, how CLTs work, and existing opportunities in Santa Ana -- particularly at the Walnut and Daisy lot. A similar presentation was made to the full City Council on December 6th, 2016, during a City Council Study Session.
