What is SSA #42?

SSA Stands for “S” Special; “S” Service; “A”Area #42. SSA #42 is the South Shore community’s SSA number.

How do I as a business and/or resident benefit from being in SSA #42 Commercial Corridor?

Businesses and residents within SSA #42 boundaries receive Special Services for
their areas:

  • Five (5) hours a week of beautification for streets, side walk sweeping and litter removal,
  • In winter months, snow removal at bus stops and sidewalks in all
    SSA #42 areas are prioritized,
  • SSA #42 area’s are banner decorated to colorize the designation of the commercial corridor distinction,
  • SSA #42 areas are provided private security patrol on foot along the commercial corridor. Officers are highly visible as a deterrent to crime.

Who pays for these services?

The SSA #42 is a result of the efforts of 5th Ward Alderman Leslie A. Hairston and the South Shore Chamber, Inc. and a tax levy from businesses in the SSA #42.
