Please join the University of Maryland School of Law Community Development Clinic, The University of Baltimore Community Development Clinic, and the University of Maryland Social Work Community Outreach Service to unveil the findings and equitable development plan set forth in Baltimore Housing Roundtable’s White Paper Report.
Community + Land + Trust: Tools For Development without Displacement describes how Baltimore’s policy of providing public subsidies and cheap land to economic developers has failed to create good paying jobs for low-income residents, and puts those residents at risk of eviction as housing costs increase and public housing subsidies decline. The Baltimore Housing Roundtable offers an alternative, evidence-based vision that puts people to work meeting the human needs of affordable housing and sustainable communities. Community land trusts and a comprehensive vacant housing initiative will create neighborhood-based institutions to drive development, employ city residents, and create permanently affordable housing that is equitable and inclusive. An annual funding commitment to this vision, through the City's bonding authority, is both plausible and visionary.
Please join us to explore this innovative approach to Baltimore’s development challenge, enjoy a light reception, and learn from policy experts, lawyers, activists, homeowners, tenants, and homeless persons who are part of the Baltimore Housing Roundtable.
