    We are proud to share our new Strategic Blueprint (PDF download) and new mission statement, developed in 2018 as a tool to guide the work of the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce, Special Service Area 27 (SSA 27), and Friends of Lakeview. The Strategic Blueprint was developed jointly by our three boards based on research, community surveys, and interviews with stakeholders. It is intended to help point our collective efforts in a direction that will most effectively move the needle toward realizing our shared vision for our community. It will provide a framework for developing annual work plans and for measuring our success, while also serving as a tool to communicate how we approach our work to people both internally and externally. As part of the Strategic Blueprint, we have also updated our mission statement: "Our mission is to support a resilient local economy and high quality of life for the benefit of businesses and residents in Chicago’s West Lakeview community through neighborhood promotion, business development, advocacy, and public space enhancements. We are a partnership between the Lakeview Chamber, SSA 27 and Friends of Lakeview, and we support each other to advance our common mission."
