dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the reuse of a failed subdivision as affordable housing by the Athens Land Trust (ALT). In 2010 ALT acquired a foreclosed parcel of land through federal HOME funds to develop the property for low-to-moderate individuals. Prior to their ownership the property had been subdivided and had the majority of the infrastructure installed. Through the grant ALT will construct 15 single family homes for low-to-moderate income individuals through a community land trust (CLT) model. Using such a model will allow ALT to provide high quality design at an affordable price. This paper examines the processes ALT and the College of Environment & Designs Public Service & Outreach office, the Center for Community Design & Preservation (CCDP), completed to make this project a reality. The final product, include as Appendix A, is a design program that examines the reuse of the site and its development at the community, site, lot, and built levels. Additionally, the larger implications of this project will be discussed as they pertain to the nation as a whole.
