2015 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program New Date to Apply

The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program is an extremely popular program in which residents share the cost of sidewalk repair with the City. The program has been a successful service for many years, offering an outstanding value to property owners. All property owners pay the same square-foot cost for new sidewalk: $4 per square foot--well below what a private contractor would charge.

The Chicago Department of Transportation administers the Shared Cost Sidewalk Program (SCSP) each year. Traditionally, the program to Chicago property owners opens on New Year's Day, January 1, 12:01 a.m. We would like to inform you of a change in the opening date and time for the 2015 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program.

There have been numerous complaints from citizens that the New Year's Day program opening is not convenient. In many circumstances the property owners are on vacation during the entire application period. In order to address this issue CDOT will open the 2015 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at 12:01 a.m.

SCSP applicants can begin by calling the City's 311 System or access the City's service request website cityofchicago.org/311 at 12:01 am on Tuesday, January 13th.

Chicago Winter Overnight Parking Ban is Active from Dec, 1st through April 1st

Chicago’s winter overnight parking ban is going into effect.

The seasonal parking restriction consumes 107 miles of the city’s most critical arterial streets from 3:00am – 7:00 am and is active from December 1, 2013 through April 1, 2014.

The parking ban is enforced regardless of snow. Click HERE for a map.

The 2-inch snow parking ban is activated on another 500 miles of arterial streets when at least two inches of snow are present. Click HERE for a map.

Cars violating the parking ban will face a minimum $150 towing fee, a $60 ticket and a storage fee of $20 per day, according to city officials.

Owners of towed vehicles can find their vehicle location online or call 311. You will need to know your license plate number, location of vehicle and date towed. Operator will inform caller of the location of the city pound that has the vehicle. If you have questions regarding your towed vehicle, for more information click here.

This Winter...Get a Shovel, Not a Ticket!

Shoveling Your Sidewalk is the Law in Chicago
Chicago Municipal Code (10-8-180) Snow and ice removal.
Every owner, lessee, tenant, occupant or other person having charge of any building or lot of ground in the city abutting upon any public way or public place shall remove the snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of such building or lot of ground. City of Chicago fines range from $250-$500 per day.

Safe Sidewalks Are Everyone’s Business
Keeping your sidewalk clear and safe to walk across keeps Logan Square in business during the winter. Kids need to get to school. Commuters need to get to the bus and train to get to work. Customers need to get to your store or office. Please pitch in and do your part to keep the neighborhood moving.
REMINDER: When shoveling please don't put snow on the wheel chair ramps on the sidewalk.

Please also be reminded that using articles to obstruct any public way or reserve parking could lead to a citation by the Department of Streets and Sanitation.

Chicago Shovels

Chicago is strongest when people, government and business work together in the face of adversity, challenges, and even Mother Nature. Chicago Shovels is a tool to help connect the public with City winter resources and empower neighbors to come together to help Chicago navigate winter.
Last winter, The Mayor's Office unveiled Chicago Shovels, an interactive website designed for residents to access information and lend a hand in snow-clearing efforts. At chicagoshovels.org, people can see the locations of snow plows in real-time and sign up for Snow Corps to help the city's most vulnerable citizens by shoveling their walkways.
Snow Corps, part of Chicago Shovels, is the program that connects volunteers with residents in need of snow removal. The response from volunteers was strong last winter and this year we'd like to help empower snow efforts in our ward. Together, we can ensure that each and every Chicagoan who is in need can have access to walking and transit.
