(Image: Lauren Walker / Truthout; Adapted: Justin Brown , Damien Gadal ) As rents become increasingly unaffordable throughout the metropolitan US, activists are looking at housing solutions beyond mere rent control, such as community land trusts -- successfully implemented in Cleveland -- and government-owned mixed-income housing projects with 99-year leases, such as those found in Vienna, Austria and Singapore.

Cleaning Up Toxic Sites Shouldn't Clear Out the Neighbors 19.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Abandoned industrial buildings at San Francisco’s Pier 70, with a smokestack in the background. (Photo: Lindsey Dillon) San Francisco has embarked on a project to transform its industrial southeast waterfront into a bike-friendly destination called the  Blue Greenway . When completed, the Blue Greenway will be a 13-mile network of parks, bike lanes and trails along the southeastern edge of the city.  Among its many benefits, the project creates green space and waterfront access in the low-income  Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood . The Blue Greenway is part of a larger transformation of Bayview Hunters Point. This older, neglected neighborhood is still full of vacant lots and a large, abandoned naval base, but it is becoming a landscape of  hip townhomes and new coffee shops . Its transformation includes the complicated cleanup of many toxic waste sites -- most notoriously, a military radiation lab on the  former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard .  The Blue Greenway project cleans up toxic land along its ...

On wildness: Community and control in urban green space 13.1.2017 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Friday, January 13, 2017 The city is a structured place. Roads and sidewalks follow mainly straight lines, while houses, apartment buildings, offices and shops march dutifully alongside them, one after the other. Many of us live structured lives within our concrete, highly controlled world, following the schedules, routines, and norms of our workplaces and leisure activities. Urban green space is often no different -- processions of trees stand on manicured turf and garden beds are filled with neat lines of annuals. Community use of park space is defined and limited by a stifling array of municipal policies, bylaws, permits and red tape. The wild and wayward life of a tiny, disproportionately lively square of parkland in Toronto's west end has a lesson to teach us about the rewards of relinquishing ...
