Block Club Info

Block Clubs help preserve the quality of life in communities and neighborhoods. They are also a forum in which neighbors can share ideas and information with one another. They also help in getting neighbors acquainted with one another, which in turns builds and strengthens relationships. A block club is the backbone of an organized neighborhood.

Block Clubs can have incredible success in reducing crime. When neighbors are well organized and collectively address issues and concerns of unwanted activity, they can achieve anything. Being involved in and caring for the community will provide a safe environment for everyone.

For 2017, block party packets will be available beginning the first week of March. Party packets must be returned no later than June 30, 2017 to be considered for approval. Applications will not be accepted after June 30th.

Snow Removal

Chicago winters can be especially challenging when sidewalks are not cleared of snow and ice. Clearing sidewalks is the law, and it is our responsibility to each other during the winter.

Many people rely on walking and transit as their primary way to get around. Without a wide, clear path through snow and ice, it is especially difficult for people with disa- bilities, seniors and children to walk. We all are pedestrians at some point in the day and all benefit from a clear sidewalk.

Make your neighborhood safe for everyone to get around this winter. Help the City of Chicago provide a great pedestrian environment and take responsibility for your side- walk by clearing snow and ice.

Clear snow as soon as practicable, but no later than 10pm on the day of the snowfall. Individuals who do not comply can face fines of up to $500 per day of violation. Busi- nesses that do not comply can face fines of up to $1000 per day of violation.
