Roscoe Hosts LBRA Event at Garden City Business Center

Roscoe Hosts LBRA Event at Garden City Business Center

The Roscoe Company played host to the recent annual meeting and networking event of the Lawndale Business Renaissance Association (LBRA). The meeting brought together business owners from both Lawndale and Little Village at the Garden City Business Center and was a good opportunity to reflect on the LBRA's impact on the community and how the Garden City Business Center supports local small businesses.

Mission & Impact of the LBRA

The event, which included the seating of new board members and an awards ceremony, highlighted the association's growing membership and efforts to improve connections between the Lawndale and Little Village communities. The LBRA, which has expanded to include Little Village, was created to revitalize, grow and attract new businesses to the area with a mix of networking, problem solving and facilitating of local, state and federal programs and incentives.

More than 50 companies are members of the association, which has assisted in efforts resulting in more than $8 million in area economic impact since 2014 – including more than $2 million last year.
