SSA 7: About

The SSA can use its tax money within its boundaries to do private security program, public way maintenance, business retention/attraction, and technical assistance to promote commercial and economic development.

The Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC) is the Service Provider Agency for SSA #7 and three other SSAs that surround the Back of the Yards area; SSA #13 Stockyards Industrial Park, SSA #39 Brighton Park/Archer Heights, and SSA #10 Back of the Yards. Every year, the City awards a contract with the BYNC to continue providing these superb services.

SSA #7 is overseen by a group of five volunteer SSA Commissioners. These Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Chicago and approved by the City Council. Once appointed, the Commissioners can recommend and approve the annual services, budget and Service Provider Agency.

Some of the highlights of SSA #7 include year-round private security and public way maintenance.
