Why does City Roots have members and what do they do?
City Roots mission is to create permanently affordable, community controlled land in Rochester. We work to achieve this mission by bringing land under the control of our organization, which is democratically governed by our membership, our community. This is why members are so crucial to City Roots. Our membership IS our community. They put the community in Community Control.
There are a number of ways that members can participate in the governance and day to day work of our organization. Some of those include:
- Voting for our board of directors every year
- Joining a Member Committee to work on CLT Projects
- Chairing a Member Committee
- Volunteer at home rehab days
