Public Way Maintenance
Cleanslate, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides paid transitional jobs in neighborhood beautification (www.cleanslateChicago.org), keeps the area sidewalks clean, litter-free and trash cans emptied on a daily basis. In the winter, sidewalks are plowed and salted whenever the snow is 1" or more. Sidewalks are professionally power washed when needed, and a graffiti removal team spends 4 days a month removing graffiti throughout the entire SSA.
Graffiti Abatement Rebate. Property owners and tenants may receive a rebate of 50% of the cost of removing and preventing graffiti on the front of their buildings, up to $500.
Public Way Aesthetics
Street Pole Banners Sponsorship. Businesses may sponsor a street pole banner and have their business names printed on the banner as a form of advertising. Please see our Street Pole Banner Sponsorship Brochure attached, and feel free to sign up & pay online located under our Forms section.
Tenant Retention & Attraction
Staff are also available to provide technical assistance to those who are looking to start or expand a business within the SSA and can assist them in obtaining City services / permits, as well as linking them to other valuable resources.
