Tuesday, January 21st – WQCLT Public Meeting!
Everyone is welcome to our first public meeting, where you can learn all about what Community Land Trusts are and how they can benefit Queens by providing REAL affordable housing and commercial spaces in a way no other entity can. Best of all, the land is owned not by a person but by the community.
We will have an in-depth presentation by a group of Rutgers graduate students who have been studying the Department of Education building in Long Island City and how, rather than giving it away to private developers, it can be used for the public good to create deeply affordable manufacturing and artists spaces, plus a school, a food co-op, a rooftop farm, and much more!
We will be adding guests and more specifics as we approach the date, but you’re welcome to come, ask questions, and become a part of this exciting movement. All are welcome!
Where: Jacob Riis Center, 1025 41st Avenue, LIC. Go down stairs at main entrance. F train to 21st/Queensbridge.
Please RSVP ON OUR FACEBOOK EVENTS PAGE to give us a head count. Thanks!
