One of the first examples of a city-land trust partnership that was designed to address a range of community challenges was the Dudley Neighbors, Inc. Land Trust (DNI), which was created in the 1980’s in the Dudley Triangle Neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts as part of the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative. After years of disinvestment, the neighborhood was struggling with blight, dumping, and arson. DNI was started to promote economic development in the Dudley Triangle neighborhood and to empower community-control without displacing existing residents. DNI acquired 30 acres of land and constructed 225 units of affordable housing, a town common, parks, urban farms, a greenhouse, and a charter school. The land trust helps to build community resilience by reducing displacement pressure in a rapidly gentrifying city, by incorporating green design features, like renewable energy, in some of its developments, and by stewarding urban farms and parks that help to enhance food security, reduce urban heat islands, and manage stormwater runoff. Additionally, the CLT’s governing board helps to enhance social cohesion and racial equity by ensuring representation that reflects the neighborhood’s racial and ethnic diversity. The DNI example shows how cities can be constructive partners in helping CLTs access land and funding. DNI was granted eminent domain authority, which helped it negotiate the purchase of blighted and underutilized parcels in the Dudley Triangle neighborhood for redevelopment. Additionally, DNI receives significant financial support from the city and the state, including benefitting from a State-level Community Investment Tax Credit that provides incentives, in the form of a 50% tax credit, for private and corporate donors that give to “high-impact, community-led economic development initiatives,” like land trusts.
