July 24: Doing Business with Cook County’s Land Banks

From the Metropolitan Planning Council:

You’re invited to this free workshop…


The Cook County Land Bank Authority and South Suburban Land Bank and Development Authority are open for business, ready and able to work with residents, organizations and businesses to put more than 55,000 vacant and abandoned homes, buildings and parcels back into productive use. The land banks and the Metropolitan Planning Council, in partnership with Chicago Rehab Network, Community Investment Corporation, Neighborhood Housing Services and Smart Chicago Collaborative, invite you to learn about opportunities to partner with the land banks by attending this free workshop.

This interactive workshop will outline the land banks’ policies, powers and limitations and explain how community development corporations, neighborhood organizations, developers and investors can tap the land banks as resources. Through case studies and best practices, as well as a resource guide, the workshop will cover topics including researching vacant properties, identifying financing options and determining the feasibility of projects.

Guest Speakers: Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle Cook County Board Commissioner Bridget Gainer

Please note: A buffet lunch will be provided. The Union League Club of Chicago requires business casual attire.
