The Jefferson Park Chamber of Commerce is assessing the need for improvements to commercial areas in the neighborhood - mainly along Milwaukee and Lawrence. This survey is an important part of the process of exploring the idea of creating a Special Service Area (SSA) in Jefferson Park. SSAs are local tax districts that fund enhanced services and programs, which are paid for by an additional property tax levy within contiguous areas. The enhanced services and programs are in addition to those currently provided through or by the City of Chicago.
Please let us know what needs you feel exist or what improvements you would like to see in the area. The study area under consideration for becoming an SSA is:
- Milwaukee Avenue from Montrose to the viaduct at the Kennedy Expressway
- Lawrence Avenue from Austin to the viaduct at the Kennedy Expressway
