SPECIAL SERVICE AREA #17
As of January 1, 2017, Lakeview East is the sole service provider for Special Service Area #17. The Special Service Area (SSA) is an economic development tool that allows additional real estate property taxes to be levied to fund added services for a defined area. The services funded through the SSA #17 tax are in addition to services generally provided by the City. These services benefit those properties that are located within the boundaries of the SSA.
Central Lakeview property and business owners will benefit from special services that will enhance the commercial district, retain and attract business and financially support small business. Some of these programs will include:
Property and business owners receive 60% rebates for improvements to storefront facades.
The SSA #17 maintenance crew will sweep by your store to ensure a clean environment. During seasonal weather snow removal and street vacuuming will be performed. Special detail work such as graffiti removal is part of their daily routine.
Floral and plantings spread across the commercial district throughout the year. Annual contracts with professional landscapers will maintain all planters and flower buckets.
Marketing and Promotions
Business owners will benefit from area advertising and promotions that will attract thousands of people to our district.
