ABOUT US

The Changing Ground Project is an urban research effort that examines how existing suburban communities can be redeveloped into walkable, mixed-use communities by combining the concepts of community land trusts with suburban land readjustment. It aims to protect and advance the interests of local communities by creating collective land cooperatives owned by the residents, and leased to investors for redevelopment. We work in close collaboration with our municipal partners, community leaders, and investors to identify equitable land ownership strategies for a community's long-term economic stability and prosperity. The Changing Ground Project is fiscally sponsored by FJC, a 501c3 public charity. As such, all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
