Alderman Sandi Jackson, SSA#49 Board of Commission and the South Shore Chamber Inc., has combined their resources, in order to eliminate development gaps and foster greater achievement within the 7th Ward area. The goal of South Shore Exchange Special Service Area (SSA#49) is to position its commercial corridors as a desirable, safe and foot walking destination, which will attract residents and visitors more frequently. In addition to supporting retail businesses, cultural planning and real estate development, SSA#49 will also help restore the beatification and amenities that 7th Ward patrons can appreciate while supporting businesses in our community.

- Five (5) hours a week of beautification for streets, side walk sweeping and litter removal,
