West Humboldt Park
Special Service Area #63

Special Service Area #63 encompasses the main portion of the Chicago Avenue commercial corridor, a  roughly one-mile stretch of property along Chicago Avenue between Albany Avenue on the East and Karlov Avenue on the West.  This is the first SSA on the Westside.

Special Service Areas, known as Business Improvement Districts or BIDs in other cities, are local tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within contiguous areas. The enhanced services and programs are in addition to those currently provided through the City.

SSA-funded projects typically include but are not limited to: public way maintenance and beautification; district marketing and advertising; business retention/attraction, special events and promotional activities; auto and bike transit; security; façade improvements; and other commercial and economic development initiatives.

For more information on the SSA please contact Tom at (773) 342-0036 or
