Waterville Community Land Trust (WCLT) works to improve Waterville’s neighborhoods by investing in people and land. Blighted neighborhoods negatively impacted by the cycle of decline can be lifted back to health by the partnerships formed by a community trust.
WCLT is a membership organization, run by an elected Board of Directors. Volunteer Directors represent the full spectrum of members: renters, homeowners and “interested parties.” Interested parties may be representatives of local government employees or elected officials; citizen activists; and individuals from the business sectors of real estate, insurance, law and other professions.
The Directors will set the organization’s mission, write its bylaws and procedures, vote on policy issues, and hire staff to run the daily activities of the trust.
The Directors have a fiduciary responsibility to ensure the organization holds to the highest standards the application of charitable contribution from members and donors and government grants and loans.
