 Who We Are
The Lehigh Valley Community Land Trust evolved from a dedicated group of about thirty-five, community-involved individuals who have a strong interest in local housing. A diverse group of professionals, they brought a tremendous amount of talent and effort to the formation of the Trust. They studied the most successful of the 200 community land trusts in the country today and took what they believe to be “Best Practices” in designing the Trust for Lehigh and Northampton Counties.
The Trust is administered by the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley and governed by a Board of Directors that represents the interests of the community. The Board of Directors is structured in a three-part fashion, featuring representation by Trust homeowners, local government, and community repretntatives.
The Trust's day-to-day administration is managed by Project Coordinator Mike Handzo and Construction Manager Mike Austin.
