Try this Public Land Bank governance concept on for size, special from the Comet:
Three (3) Mayoral appointees, three (3) by City Council, and three (3) by the new Opportunity-Laden Neighborhood Community Advisory Council (OLNCAC).
Participating community organizations and residents will submit to the City bylaws for the OLNCAC, and the City shall approve the agreement with the association by ordnance and may revoke it only by ordinance. The OLNCAC’s bylaws must include adequate measures to ensure a diversity of representation, participation and inclusion among land banking “affected” neighborhoods (by the terms of Burgess/Lavelle). The OLNCAC may participate in other activities.
If that is too radically community engaging, then how about five appointees by the Mayor, four by City Council, and several restrictions on the choices to ensure adequate “affected” neighborhood interest representation by either side, while an Advisory Council still makes its advice known.
