Calendar of Events

While the City of Chicago eases into Phase Four of Reopening Small Businesses, we want to remind you all that we are still in a pandemic.  We encourage everyone to continue practicing social distancing, please wear your face masks and wash your hands frequently. SSA #42 has canceled all in-person events for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year.   And in compliance with the Governor's public meetings order, all SSA #42 Commissioner meetings will be held remotely until further notice.


To learn more about the City's Phase Four Guidelines and how they may impact your business please review the Mayor's Press Release here.

Thank you,


Tonya Trice

What is a Special Service Area?

Special Service Areas are localized tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within a contiguous area. The enhanced services are in addition to those currently provided through the city.   


The South Shore Chamber of Commerce is the proud service provider of SSA #42.
