Community Land Trust: An Innovative Experience

In this intervention, Saki Bailey argues that Community Land Trusts offer a critical tool to preventing displacement and solving the housing crisis through housing preservation by creating affordability where and when people need it the most, not tomorrow or ten years from now, as with housing production, but by giving people the option to remain in the homes they know and love right now.ommons will be an enormous benefit.”

Conceived by Ugo Mattei, the conference “I beni comuni / Housing and the Commons. Una soluzione istituzionale innovativa per l'edilizia sociale?” was held in Trento on June 27, 2024, organised by the International University College of Turin, the Coop Generazioni Future, and the Law Dept. of the University of Trento.

Dr. Saki Bailey is the Executive Director of the San Francisco Community Land Trust, with extensive experience in affordable housing research, policy advocacy, and non-profit management, and a deep understanding and knowledge of community land trusts, housing cooperatives, and other shared equity ownership models.

The San Francisco Community Land Trust (SFCLT) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create permanently affordable housing for low-to-moderate-income people through community ownership of the land. Guided by the principles of anti-displacement and racial justice, SFCLT stabilizes neighborhoods, and creates greater access to housing and homeownership opportunities with a focus on communities previously excluded from access to wealth.

Organized by Generazioni Future and the IUC of Turin, an important conference on common goods and the right to housing was held yesterday in Trento. Among the many excellent contributions, Ugo Mattei chose these two interventions for us!
