Rondo Community Land Trust

In response to the displacement of low-income residents by highway construction projects, Rondo Community Land Trust was formed in 1993 to provide permanently affordable housing to residents in Summit-University and Lexington-Hamline, two neighborhoods in St. Paul. It has since expanded to include all residents of Ramsey County who make less than 80 percent of the area median income.  In addition to constructing new homes with sustainable features, Rondo CLT creates affordable housing by moving buildings slated for demolition to vacant lots and then rehabbing them.  To date, this effort has moved 12 buildings, creating 15 housing units and diverting over 15 million pounds of waste from landfills.
