Dunno about infrastructure costs. Could be some sort of CDFI funding, if it makes sense to that type of alternative lender. As for cost of land, the model seems to be relying on transfer of land for $1 from public agencies, or long-term leasing from public entities. An alternative cost-of-land thing that has come up in discussions is agricultural easements, or sale of development rights. How those are purchased, and by whom, is maybe worth considering, since it could potentially lead to favorable tax treatment, but would (presumably) need to be transacted for something more than a nominal amount. That came up in Troy Gardens, right?
