BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois & Healthy Chicago will be providing vaccinations at different locations throughout the summer. Make sure to bring your child shot records in order to get vaccinations free of charge. They will also be present at our Back to School Fair on August 19 at Schubert Elementary from 10:00 - 2:00. If you can't make it to our event they will be hosting others, according to the flyer.
This coming Monday, our weekly Ward Night event will be hosted at Cragin Park! Ward Night is a wonderful opportunity for residents of the 31st Ward to come and speak to Alderman Santiago and voice any concerns about our ward. Join us at Cragin Park, located at 2611 N. Lockwood, on Monday, August 7, from 4pm until 7pm. We hope to see you there!
Alderman Santiago is calling a Community Meeting to review an amendment to the planned development for The Fields.
The meeting will be on the site of the development at 4000 West Diversey on Wednesday, August 2 from 6:30 to 7:30pm.
The development's plan has been approved by the Chicago City Council long before Alderman Santiago took office, but the developers are now seeking an amendment to the approved plan to change from a proposed 84 "live/work" units to 125 residential, rental apartments.
Alderman Santiago and Chicago Animal Care & Control are hosting a low-cost vaccination clinic. The event will be held in our office parking lot, located at 2505 N. Pulaski Rd. (two doors south of the ward office). Pet-owners can qualify for rabies vaccinations for as low as $15 per vaccination! Bring your furry companions down to our office space parking lot and take advantage of this opportunity! Please be advised, however, that only the first 100 pets will receive service. Cash only, please.
It's that time of the year again, Participatory Budgeting is back!
All residents of the 31st Ward will again have the opportunity to decide what needs fixing. $1 Million Dollars is available to make repairs to our Infrastructure. You can help decide where that money is spent.
Alderman Santiago will host four Neighborhood Assemblies to reach out and collect ideas.
The Neighborhood Assemblies will be held over the next month and a half. We will also combine PB Assemblies with other events to collect as many Ideas and Volunteers as possible.
Watch this page, newsletter, and Facebook Page for more Participatory Budgeting information!
We look forward to seeing you at one of the Assemblies.
