Census Challenge
July 7 - 17

Mayor Lightfoot is calling on all Chicagoans to participate in a Census Challenge. The ward that delivers the highest census response rate in the next 10 days will receive a ward-wide Ice Cream event! Take the census today at My2020census.gov.

Currently, our ward has a self-response rate of 60.9%. Remember each person counted is worth $1400 in federal aid to our city - billions of dollars are at stake.

Today is week 17 of the Census Response Period. As of today, 18,170 households in our ward have responded to the 2020 Census. This means there are about 11,666 households which have not responded! Let's all participate in this opportunity to be counted -- and have a ward-wide Ice Cream event! Socially distanced, of course.
No Permits for Block Parties
Through September 7, 2020

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has announced that no block party permits will be issued through September 7 and any permits that were issued last week, will be revoked.

Following recommendations from the CDC and the guidance of City and State officials to avoid non-essential gatherings and any gatherings larger than 50 individuals,  Block Party permits are not being issued during summer of 2020.
