How our board works:

OakCLT’s bylaws provide for a traditional tripartite community land trust governance structure, with seats apportioned among the three categories below. The board must be comprised of at least one-third low-income residents at all times:

  • Lessee Directors: one-third CLT homeowners, renters, or other lessees of land owned by OakCLT
  • Community Directors: one-third local experts and residents of the neighborhoods served by OakCLT
  • Organizational Directors: one-third appointees from local organizations in alignment with the OakCLT mission
