Meeting with the Alderman

To request the alderman for a meeting or event, send an email to schedule@chicago47.org.

OR meet with the alderman during Ward Night.

NOTE: If you are contacting the alderman about a zoning or development issue, please note the alderman does not discuss his approval or support of any projects until the request, proposal or concept is run through his 47th Ward Zoning Advisory Committee (see www.chicago47.org/zoning). For questions on technical issues or the approval procedure, contact Ernie Constantino (ernie@chicago47.org or 773-549-4555) who handles zoning, residential and commercial development, and business issues such as licenses, SBIF funding and use-of-public-way permits.

Guidelines for Posting Notices in our Newsletter, Website or Front Office Window

We will consider advertising requests for fundraisers and special events/notices for non-profits, including arts & culture-related productions. For businesses we only consider advertising requests for events that have a direct benefit to a community organization/non-profit; otherwise we do not publicize events for for-profit entities. We do not normally advertise events happening outside the ward unless it has pertinence to our ward constituents.

We can place posters in our office window, preferably 8 ½ x 11 size, for a limited amount of time. For our newsletter, JPEG of flyers are preferred but PDF flyers are also acceptable; our deadline for accepting newsletter submissions is usually Thursday mornings.
