SSA #51 Chatham Cottage Grove
What is a Special Service Area (SSA)?
The Special Service Area (SSA) program is a mechanism for contiguous industrial, commercial and residential areas to fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy. These enhanced services and programs are in addition to services and programs currently provided through the city. SSA funded projects could include but are not limited to: security services, area marketing and advertising assistance, promotional activities such as parades and festivals, or any variety of small scale capital improvements which could be supported through a modest property tax levy.
Security is provided from SSA #51 at any SSA #51 public event.
The businesses in SSA #51 provide retail, restaurants and services to the Chatham community. SSA #51 is dedicated to marketing these businesses year round.
During the Spring, Summer and Fall Seasons, SSA #51 provides maintenance for planters and weed removal along the sidewalk.
SSA #51 provides a grant to several businesses a year for the opportunity to enhance their storefront.

SSA #51 Kudos
"Hats off to the CBA for their men with the blue jackets "Street Beautifcation or Cleaning Team"!!!
- Michael LaFargue, Associate Broker, REALTOR (R)
"RECENTLY I WITNESSED SOMETHING TRULY WONDERFUL AND AMAZING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD! THREE YOUNG MEN WALKING DOWN THE STREET TOWARDS ME AT 612 E. 79TH STREET WERE ENGAGED ACTIVELY IN CLEANING THE SIDEWALKS AS THEY PROCEEDED BY REMOVING TRASH AND DEBRIS. MOST INSPIRING WAS THE FACT THAT THEIR PANTS WEREN'T "SAGGING" AS IS THE "NORM" HERE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD! I MADE IT A POINT TO THANK THEM FOR THEY'RE HA...RD WORK! DID I MENTION THAT IT WAS ALSO DRIZZLING RAIN AT THAT TIME, WHICH DID NOT SEEM TO DETER THIS TEAM FROM SSA [#51].
THANK YOU LEON WEST, THANK YOU JONATHAN BRYSON, THANK YOU RAYMOND BROWN FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN MY COMMUNITY."
