WPB Ambassadors

Gnome-one serves you better!

WPB SSA #33 is committed to continually improving community engagement, beautification and safety. Beginning in 2018, we are offering rebates for participation in the WPB Ambassador Program within the SSA district which incentivizes local businesses to be good neighbors by sending employees on scheduled neighborhood walks.

It pays to be a good neighbor in Wicker Park and Bucktown. The new WPB Ambassador Program financially incentivizes the district’s businesses to send staff on scheduled walks of the neighborhoods (minimum of 3 days and up to 5 days per week) – engaging with pedestrians, providing neighborhood hospitality services and calling in any observed issues as appropriate.

WPB SSA #33 business owners will authorize their own staff (or residents) to participate in the neighborhood walks, receiving a rebate directly for their participation (up to $4,420.00 per applicant annually). 

Owners and tenants of tax-contributing commercial or residential property located on Ashland, Milwaukee, Western, North, Damen, & Division, as defined on the map, are eligible to apply to participate.
