  1. Hola: We would Like to be kept informed regarding the meeting discussed above. We are a NFP looking for property to buy in either North or South Lawndale. The following is an outline about our plans. Buy property, convert a portion of it into a bookstore, community center and classroom. The classrooms will be used to hold Spanish and English conversational classes, among others. The community center will be used by the community to hold meeting anywhere from meetings by Transgender persons to families suffering from domestic abuse. We will employ people who are living in the communities of North and South Lawndale, giving preference to persons who are exoffender and/or of the LGBTQ community. We are investigating working with the NFP Investment in Community and the Cook County Land Bank, also the banks we have approached are community banks, we are trying very hard not to work with any of the big four who were responsible for the economic situation we are in. Looking forward to hearing from you and finding out more of how we can work to strengthen North Lawndale and bring a better understanding and connection to South Lawndale.  EL TECHNO COLIBRI eltechnocolibri@yahoo.com Guadalupe M.
