Chelsea, Massachusetts is currently in the process of gentrifying due to an increase in public transport, density increases of middle to high class commercial business, and increases in educated, middle class population. While these changes are beneficial to the new populations, current residents are at risk of displacement from their homes. Our goal is to help the Chelsea-based nonprofit GreenRoots by providing them with benefits and challenges of implementing a community land trust (CLT). We accomplished this by learning about other community land trusts and how they are able to maintain sustainable affordable housing. We also gathered interest about implementing a CLT from other Chelsea-based organizations, which will help GreenRoots determine if a CLT is appropriate for Chelsea.
