We believe that WeaverPRM will help us to standardize and track how the individual CLTs under the ALTC umbrella function and to implement regional best practices.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
The Jones Payne Group, Inc. announced that the Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative (ALTC) has purchased WeaverPRM™, the firm’s web-based software that integrates workflow tracking, dwelling, and homeowner information into a system designed to help organize and manage parcel and property-based activities. ALTC, founded in 2009, will become a central server to create a strategic and focused approach to developing community land trust (CLT) housing initiatives around the Atlanta BeltLine.
ALTC is committed to using the CLT concept to offset the effects the current Atlanta BeltLine economic development efforts might have on gentrification of neighborhoods and displacement of low- and moderate- housing stock.
“We believe that WeaverPRM will help us to standardize and track how the individual CLTs under the ALTC umbrella function and to implement regional best practices,” said Tony Pickett, executive director of the ALTC. “As we move to create new land trusts, WeaverPRM will ensure the continuity and integration of all the CLTs while allowing them to maintain and protect their unique identify within each community.”
The Jones Payne Group will be offering a demonstration of WeaverPRM on Wednesday, October 26 at 3:00 pm during the National Community Land Trust Network’s 2011 Conference in Seattle, WA.
Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative
Under the leadership of The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, the Atlanta Housing Association of Neighborhood-based Developers (AHAND) and the Annie E. Casey Foundation – Atlanta Civic Site, a group of more than 30 public, private, nonprofit, and community organizations created the Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative (ALTC) to maintain affordability in neighborhoods at risk of gentrification and displacement due to the Atlanta BeltLine $2.8 billion redevelopment initiative and throughout the City of Atlanta. The ALTC is spearheading the creation of Community Land Trusts (CLTs) in order to provide access to land and housing for low- and moderate-income residents; increase long-term community control of neighborhood resources; empower residents through involvement and participation in the organization; and preserve the affordability of housing permanently.
