The general boundaries of the proposed 103rd Street SSA includes both sides of Halsted between north 115th street and south 99th Street; both sides of 103rd between Morgan and Lowe; and along Vincennes between north 115th Street and 111th Street.

103rd Halsted Street SSA will support our efforts to promote investment and development in the community by offering the following programs: Street Cleaning, Maintenance and Beautification, Security, Marketing and Economic Development. These program areas will provide the 34th Ward with a Vibrant and Healthy Business District.
