The particular forte of community land trusts is not development but stewardship. It is what happens to affordable homes, community gardens, nonprofit facilities, or commercial spaces after they have been developed that is the CLT’s area of special concern – and expertise. The materials collected (or referenced) in this section of the CLT RESOURCE CENTER examine policies and procedures for implementing the CLT’s long-term commitment to what is sometimes called the “three faces” of stewardship: preserving affordability, promoting sound maintenance, and preventing foreclosures.
