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. Record 2 of 2 IAC # 12950039(IAC) AUTHOR Matthei, Chuck. TITLE US land reform movements: the theory behind the practice.

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