City-wide Lerma's Community Meeting
Presented by Esperanza Peace and Justice Center
August 12, 2015
Built in 1942, Lerma’s opened for business in 1951. In 2010 the building risked demolition and was saved by community members; it is now under the guardianship of the Esperanza. Efforts are now in place to open it as a live music venue, a museum and a non-profit rental space. In 2010, the building was cited as a dangerous structure and risked demolition. Luckily a group of community members banded together to save the historic building and sought the help of the Esperanza Center, then known for its efforts to save La Gloria. For the past few years, the Esperanza has sought out funding to repair the building in hopes to open it once again as a live music venue, a museum, and non-profit rental spaces.
Join us in a large community discussion about future redevelopment plans to make our beloved Lerma's a vibrant and active community cultural arts space. The meeting will take place Aug. 12 at Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center at 6 PM- 8 PM.
