Subject: Request for Change of Zoning to Special Zone for Community Center Usage

Dear Community Development,

I hope this letter finds you well. As per our discussion this evening with you and Matt Frank I am writing to formally request a change in zoning for NATIONAL INDIA HUB Foundation (INDIA HUB) property at 930 National Pkwy, Schaumburg, Il, 60173 to a special zone that permits the establishment and operation of a community center.

In January 2023 The Ministry of External Affairs of India recognized INDIA HUB as one of the most effective service organizations in the world which helped more than 11,000 people across the United States since the beginning of the Pandemic in March 2020 by bringing more than 135 Organizations together and continuing the services for all the ethnicities without borders. The purpose of NATIONAL INDIA HUB on National Pkwy in Schaumburg is ultimately to enhance the overall quality of life in the Greater Chicago community by providing a place where residents can connect, learn, grow, and access essential services. INDIA HUB is a valuable asset that contributes to the well-being and resilience of communities. INDIA HUB already has over 285 Volunteers signed up to support the mission and vision to serve the community without borders and supported to set up the furniture worth more than $500,000 within 2 months.
