Dear Neighbor,


Welcome to the 2nd Ward! My name is Brian Hopkins and I am your Alderman. I was first elected in 2015, and my commitment remains to ensure that the diverse neighborhoods that make up our Ward remain vibrant and attractive places for Chicagoans to live, work, and enjoy. Our Ward encompasses parts of Streeterville, Gold Coast, River North, the Near North Side, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Noble Square, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, East Village, and Bucktown.

As your Alderman, I am committed to making sure that my office, staff, and I, are accessible to you as possible.

Whether you need parking passes or constituent services, my staff and I are dedicated to making sure that your issues are resolved or answered in as expedient a manner as possible.


Be sure to explore the rest of my website to find out when your garbage pickup date is, when your streets are swept, find residential permit parking zones around you, information about block parties and CAPS Beat meetings, public safety tips, schools and parks around the Ward, and most important, sign up for my newsletter.


Lastly, if you need anything from me or my office, call (312) 643-2299 or send an email to


Thank you for selecting the 2nd Ward as your home, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
