Special Service Areas collect additional taxes for improvements to a defined business district. The public is invited to attend the first of two community meetings being held to obtain feedback on a proposed SSA for an area bounded by: North Branch River Channel to Kimball on Lawrence, North Branch River Channel to Central Park on Montrose, Ainslie to Berteau on Kedzie and Kimball.

The second meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., June 10, 4650 N. Pulaski Rd., 17th District Police headquarters.

Find out more about the SSA, the services it provides and who's affected by the tax.

The meeting is being hosted by the North River Commission and Albany Park Chamber of Commerce.
