Each year, the 11th Ward is allotted approximately $1.3 million in funds to be used for infrastructure maintenance and improvement projects. In the 11th Ward, Alderman Patrick Thompson strives to make the most out of these funds and improve every area of the Ward by selecting projects based on need and fair disbursement throughout every section of the Ward. Community involvement is an important aspect of the Menu Program and we encourage suggestions for improvements such as Street Resurfacing, Alley Resurfacing, and Curb & Gutter. Please email our office with any requests and be sure to include your name, address, a brief description of the issue, and if possible, pictures.

The Menu Program is best used for fixing sections of sidewalk that are serious tripping hazards within the public way. For those who would like new sidewalks in front of their home, we encourage you to apply for the annual Shared Cost Sidewalk Program. 

The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program (SCSP) is a voluntary program where the property owner can share, with the City, the cost of repairing sections of sidewalk adjacent to their property. 

Residents are encouraged to participate because the City charges much less than a private contractor would. Furthermore, Senior citizens and persons with disabilities may qualify to receive an additional discount. The SCSP Program opens in January and the number of participants is based on availability of funds. 

Applications will only be accepted through the City’s 311 system by calling 311 or through the City’s service request website www.311.chicago.gov. Please be sure to specify that you are interested in the Shared Cost Sidewalk Program when you call. 

For additional information on the Shared Cost Sidewalk Program, please contact CDOT at (312) 744-1746 or e-mail [email protected]
