Welcome our new Greektown SSA Commissioners
Learn about Justine Fedak, George N. Reveliotis and Maria Tsourapas
Like many neighborhoods across Chicago, Greektown has its own business improvement district, Greektown Special Service Area #16. This SSA is administered by sole service provider the West Central Association and guided by a volunteer commission of local business owners, property owners and residents.
We’re pleased to welcome three new Greektown SSA #16 Commissioners: Justine Fedak, George N. Reveliotis and Maria Tsourapas. Learn more about each of them in their bios below.
