Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce
Expands Service Area
At the beginning of 2017, the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce expanded our boundaries to include the area in which the former Central Lakeview organization, Chicago View, used to cover and serve.  Chicago View, also known as Central Lakeview Merchants Association, closed their organization and operations at the end of 2016.   

The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce is also the new Sole Service Provider for Special Service Area #17 (SSA #17), which encompasses the Central Lakeview district. What this means to businesses and residents is that we will be rolling out new programs to make the neighborhood safer, cleaner, and more beautiful! We are excited to be working with Alderman Tom Tunney, the 19th District Police, and the CTA to bring a robust security program to the Central Lakeview area. We will also be opening an additional office in the Central Lakeview area due to open this coming Spring. Please visit our website or Facebook 
page to stay up to date with neighborhood news. 
Please contact us at (773) 348-8608 or email us at info@lakevieweast.com should you have any questions or need additional information.
