Organizing to secure a Community Land Trust (CLT) in Loisaida
Sixth Street Community Center (SSCC) is co-hosting a meeting with Cooper Square Committee and This Land is Ours Community Land Trust at La Plaza Cultural Garden (E 9th Street and Ave. C.) on Thursdays, Sept. 22 at 5:30 pm to talk to local residents about our interest in jointly developing the underutilized NYCHA parking lot site right next to SSCC.
Our vision is to create at least 50 low income apartments and expand community programs on the development’s ground floor. We envision expanded youth, teen and adult programs, a food cooperative to expand food access in Loisaida and incorporating energy efficient passive building as a model for urban sustainability. We would like to get feedback from local residents about our initial plans. Over the next year we will be incorporating community feedback and build community support for turning this under-utilized space into urgently needed affordable housing for low income households.
Join us and come share your ideas. We have started collecting petitions in support of this plan to present to the Mayor's Administration. Volunteers are welcome to assist with this effort.
