Dear Cook County Land Bank friends and supporters:
Happy New Year! 2014 was an exciting year for the Cook County Land bank and I want to thank you all for your continued support. With your help along with the leadership of the Board and staff, this first year in operation has brought many notable accomplishments. We have established a solid foundation for the land bank and the development of an organization that will be able to take advantage of exciting new residential programs at Fannie Mae and truly regional economic development opportunities. As we evolve to take on more targeted neighborhood and commercial and industrial development, we will again be looking for your assistance to attract and partner with new leadership at CCLBA.
Our first executive director, Brian White, has done a tremendous job creating this foundation and his skills and experience in the start-up of the Land Bank have been invaluable. As we look to the next phase of the Land Bank, we are seeking a leader who will build upon all that has been accomplished and continue the mission of transforming communities.
Attached is a job announcement and position description to forward on to your networks. Resumes are due by January 30, 2015, 5:00 PM US Central Time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Cook County Commissioner – Tenth District
Chairman, Cook County Land Bank Authority
