Hey thanks  for the reading suggestions so far, I'll look into them.  The 
Institute fro Community Economics has a reading list which includes many 
articles from its newletter in collected format and the two definative 
community land trust books "The Community Land Trust Handbook" and "The 
Community Land Trust Legal Manual" which are also availible at libraries 
and book stores.  
Their address is 57 School Street, Sprinfield MA. 01150, 413-746-8660  
(fax  -8862).  They are the leading promoter of CLTs and provide 
technical assitance it the set up and administration of CLTs. 

On the Net I have found on piece by John Rivett (sic) that is a very good 
overview of the CLT essence and nice try at tying it into the luddite 
movement (unless my jumbled brain has confused itself once more).  Do a 
search on Community Land Trust and you'll find it fast.  I hope to have a 
reading list and my own brief historical and current perspective on the 
CLT movement on a web page within the month for your perusal.

The following is a spotty list (some of which I have not found a copy to 
read yet) of an electronic library  search using community land trust.  
Other word combinations may turn up more reading.

             Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is one example of many resort 
               that have serious affordable-housing problems.  The 
               home price is more than $500,000.   To give working 
people a
               chance to obtain an equity stake in town, the Jackson 
               Community Housing Trust was formed to create 
               affordable ownership housing.  The Trust opted to 
               resale restrictions via lease restrictions, which are 
               through the community land trust model.  The Trust is 
               motivated to acquire land and build housing before 
               development makes it cost prohibitive, and ground 
lease fees
               are a good source of cash flow without being a real 
               burden to the homeowner.
