PB in the 47th Ward
Aldermen Matt Martin brought PB to the 47th Ward in 2019. Learn more about the ward, upcoming events, and past cycles below.
The 47th Ward is centered around the North Side neighborhoods of Lincoln Square, Ravenswood, and Northcenter. Generally bounded by the River to the west, Lawrence to the north, Belmont to the south, and Clark to the east, it also includes parts of Roscoe Village, Lakeview, Uptown, and Andersonville. It is largely residential, centered around important commercial corridors including Lincoln Ave. The Ravenswood Industrial Corridor that runs along the Metra tracks highlights the industrial history of the area, with a number of manufacturing businesses still active.

2019/2020 PB Cycle
During the 2019 PB cycle, Alderman Martin created the 47th Ward Youth Council made up of young residents of the ward between grades 8 and 12. From November 2019, the 47th Ward Youth Council met regularly in committees to decide project proposals to place on ballot of the 47th Ward's 2020 menu money. Young residents worked with ward staff and city agencies to develop 7 ballot items. Voting took place June 8th, 2020 to June 15, 2020. Over 1400 residents voted at the ward office, in the community, and online.
Winning Projects: TBD
