To improve the economic vitality of the area we serve, and maintain a safe, clean, aesthetically pleasing, and culturally distinct environment that reflects its historic significance.
Special Service Areas are local tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within contiguous areas.
SSA-funded projects typically include but are not limited to: Public way maintenance, 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.
The Chicago City Council passed the Establishment Ordinances for the SSA #40 Michigan Avenue/Roseland and SSA #41 103rd Street/Roseland in 2006. The Calumet Area Industrial Commission is the Sole Service Provider for both SSA 40 and 41; it manages SSA-funded programs under the oversight of the SSA Board of Commissioners. SSA Commission meetings are open to the public.
The Calumet Area Industrial Commission is proposing to renew and combine SSA 40 on Michigan Avenue and SSA 41 on 103rd Street to allow for services such as security, sidewalk cleaning, landscaping, business attraction, and façade improvements, as well as other activities.
Join us to discuss a proposal to renew and combine SSAs along Michigan Avenue and 103rd Street in Roseland at upcoming community meetings:
Monday, April 18 at 1:00 p.m.
