The community of Barrio Logan and Logan Heights have been working for decades to remove polluting businesses from alongside homes and schools.
They’ve been working hard to clean up the air, bring parks and trees into the neighborhood. Now that these efforts are finally gaining traction, they are at risk of being pushed out of their neighborhood due to rising rents, unaffordable homeownership, house flippers, and new businesses.
In order for residents to benefit from the progress they created, and to ensure the long-term affordability of housing in the community, residents themselves need to own the land. EHC, with funding from Transformative Climate Communities, is engaging residents in a planning process to establish the first Community Land Trust in the area.
