The West Loop Community Organization (WLCO) invites you to a public discussion about the proposed establishment of the Fulton Market Special Service Area (SSA).

Special Service Areas, known as Business Improvement Districts (BID) in other cities, are local tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within contiguous areas. The enhanced services and programs are in addition to those currently provided through the City of Chicago. SSA-funded projects typically include, but are not limited to: public way maintenance and beautification, district marketing and advertising, business retention/attraction, special events and promotional activities, public and bike transit, safety and security initiatives, litter and trash removal, and other commercial and economic development programs.

The City contracts with local non-profits, called Service Providers, to manage SSAs. Mayorally-appointed Special Service Area Commissioners for each SSA district oversee and recommend annual services, budget and Service Provider agency to the City. There are currently 53 active SSAs within the municipality.


Learn about the proposed programs and services the Fulton Market SSA could provide for the Fulton Market District by attending our community meetings. There are two: Tuesday, May 28 at 9:00AM and Wednesday, May 29 at 6:00PM at Revel Fulton Market (1215 West Fulton Market).
