Now more than ever, Oakland needs its Pittsburgh neighbors. Sign on below to join the campaign for an Oakland Community Land Trust.
A community land trust acquires residential real estate and retains ownership of the underlying land while the resident owns the home on top of the land. Over 200 communities across the United States have formed land trusts to preserve the character of their neighborhoods. In Oakland, our trust will benefit the community by requiring anyone who buys a house on land trust land to live in it as their primary residence. We believe that sustaining a critical mass of homeowners and providing affordable housing is the best thing we can do to preserve the quality of life in Oakland’s residential neighborhood for the long term.
