The Chicago Bungalow Association (CBA) was inspired by former 19th Ward Alderman Virginia Rugai and was created in September 2000 by Mayor Richard M. Daley to ensure that the 80,000 one and one-half story homes that have been the foundation of family lives and neighborhoods for over 100 years would continue to do so for the next century.
