The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce currently provides the following services through the Clark Street SSA:

Supplementary sidewalk snow removal: Snow plowing and salting services are provided after a one inch accumulation of snow.

Landscaping: Seasonal plantings and streetscape amenities are maintained throughout the SSA area, including spring and holiday installations for hanging baskets and standing planters.

Holiday decorations: Festive decorations and lights are installed on the street poles for the holidays.

Sidewalk litter pick-up: A clean-up crew has been hired to pick up garbage and debris on Clark Street three days a week during the colder months (November through April) and five days a week during the warmer months (May through October). Crews also empty sidewalk trash cans and recycling bins.

Facade Improvement Rebate Program: The Facade Rebate Program offers rebates to business and property owners within the Clark Street SSA that improve the look of buildings and storefronts in the corridor. From projects as small as a new window or sign, to those as big as an entire facade replacement, this program will keep our neighborhood looking good.

Safety Rebate Program: The Safety Rebate Program offers a rebate for business or  property owners within the Clark Street SSA that make improvements such as exterior lighting upgrades and security camera upgrades to the public way facing portion of their building. 

Art on Clark: The Art on Clark program is a rotating annual public sculpture exhibit designed to showcase and support local artists and artisans, as well as beautify the neighborhood. Each year ten sculptures are placed throughout the Clark Street SSA district. Visitors can take a self-guided tour with the help of the Otocast app to explore all the unique sculptures along the business corridor. Learn more about Art on Clark and download the Otocast app here.

Business Safety Tips: The LPCC developed a list of Safety Tips for Businesses to help business owners and managers with simple and effective ways to keep their businesses safe.

Vandalism Repair Rebate Program: The Vandalism Repair Rebate Program provides incentives in the form of a rebate for physical repairs to windows and doors of commercial spaces along the public way due to vandalism. The goal of the Vandalism Repair Rebate Program is to ensure that the Clark Street SSA district is not mired by broken or boarded up windows, and that businesses can receive financial assistance if vandalism occurs.
