PB in the 31st Ward
Alderwoman Milly Santiago brought PB to the 31st Ward in 2015. Learn more about the ward, upcoming events, and past cycles below.
Chicago’s 31st Ward is located in the northwest part of the city. It is made up of portions of the Hermosa, Belmont Cragin, and Portage Park neighborhoods. A longtime community anchor – the Marshall Field’s warehouse – has recently undergone redevelopment to serve as a mixed-use facility with housing, retail, industrial, and office space. The ward is also well-served by a constellation of parks, including Kelvyn, Ken Wel, Cragin, and Kosciuszko Parks. The makeup of much of the neighborhood is mostly residential and is serviced by several major retail corridors, including Fullerton, Belmont, Cicero, and Pulaski.
