Hi everyone and thank you for your help.

So for this class project, we have to build a model in the toolbox.

- I have 2 layer (point shapefiles): Schools and hospitals
- I have 1 other layer (polygon shapefile): Vacant parcel.

So I am trying to figure out how to build the model that would allow me to only retain the parcels that within 3 miles of an hospital and within 1 miles from the school.

I know how to do that normally (select by location), but not how to do it in the model builder.

I tried buffer and then intersect but the problem is that it cuts the parcel, and I want to keep them intact.

Any ideas? Thank you
