Valerie Leonard announces that The Lawndale Alliance, in partnership with the North Lawndale Community News, is presenting The Community Awareness Series of Town Meetings at the 10th District Police Station, 3315 West Ogden Avenue, on Wednesdays, June 16, 23, and 30, 6:00-8:00 PM.
The issue for discussion at the June 16 meeting is North Lawndale Schools: Gaining Ground or Shaky Ground?
On June 23, the discussion centers on the question, Who’s Being Stabilized? Who’s Being Stimulated? Consideration will be given to the Stimulus Package and Neighborhood Stabilization Program’s effectiveness and impact.
Meeting #3 on July 30 is called Connecting the Dots: TIFs, Eminent Domain, and Building Code Enforcement.
Local residents are encouraged to attend and participate in these lively and thought-provoking discussions on the state of North Lawndale today and determining the look of the community in the future. For information, call Valerie Leonard at 773/521-3137 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
