It's snowing! The SSA #33 works with our contractors to provide supplemental snow removal throughout the winter: Cleanslate takes care of Milwaukee Avenue and the Polish Triangle, while Christy Webber Landscapes oversees Western, Damen, Divsion, Ashland and North Ave. Please keep in mind that there will likely be times when your property may not be serviced by these contractors immediately. Business owners are responsible for shoveling their sidewalks or they may get a ticket! It is important to remember that according to the Municipal Code of Chicago, individuals who do not comply can face fines of $500, and businesses can face fines up to $1000 per day of violation.

Have you walked by the intersection of Milwakee/Wood/Beach lately? World renowned artist and Chicago Native Hebru Brantley returned to our neighborhood on September 10th and 11th to paint a new mural on the east-facing wall of 1401 N. Milwaukee Ave. This piece is the second at this location by Brantley. The first piece, which stood for almost a decade and was covered by graffiti clean-up crews, was one of his earliest Chicago murals and represented a key step in the development of his iconic characters, Flyboy and Lil Mama, inspired in part by the Tuskegee Airmen.
