Joe Di Fiore
Elected Board of Directors
Our board reflects that of a traditional community land trust with a tri-partite board consisting of 1) Lessee Representatives, 2) General Community Representatives, and 3) Public Representatives. Control of the CLT’s board is balanced to ensure that the community as a whole considers and determines the priorities of the organization and all interests are heard but no interest is predominant.
Individuals that are Land Trust residents and live in City Roots CLT housing. These representatives bring knowledge and real-life stories that are valuable to the CLT.
General Community Representatives
Individuals that live in the communities where City Roots CLT works. These individuals bring valuable knowledge of the community at large.
Most of these individuals are professionally employed with prior board experience. They often provide valuable knowledge of resources that can be utilized by the CLT.
