Wicker Park Bucktown Special Service Area #33

WPB. It’s our  name and the name of the community we serve. It is where we live and what we live for. We help make this hood happen. WPB works when we grease the gears of commerce. It flourishes when we promote its arts. It stays beautiful because we keep it clean. Our culture thrives with our celebration of it. We are the forum to hear its voice. We are the volunteers who serve it. More importantly, we are it.


We are guided by a Master Plan, adopted in 2009 after consultation with a broad range of community residents, businesses and leaders.  We are governed by a Commission of volunteers who are appointed by the city.  The WPB Commissioners are guided by our committees.  Our WPB committees, which are open to public participation, are organized to accomplish the goals and objectives of the Master Plan. Please join us at an upcoming committee or commission meeting to help implement the Plan.  For demographic information,click here.
