The Sunnyside Neighborhood Association Land Use and Transportation Committee meetings will be held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 8 p.m. at SE Uplift (3534 SE Main Street). We are in the process of finalizing a revision of the committee’s charter, including outlining a work plan for the next year. We especially encourage Sunnyside renters to attend. The LUTC recognizes that most Sunnyside residents are renters and seeks to include their voices and needs in this committee.
Historically, the Sunnyside LUTC has served as a point of contact between the neighborhood, city planning bureaus, and private developers looking to make changes or redevelop land in the neighborhood. The reformed committee will maintain this role, facilitate discussion between neighbors on issues relating to proposed and existing transportation, and aid in refining a vision for our neighborhood infrastructure in alignment with the interests of current and future Sunnyside residents.
The SNACC committee began our February meeting picking up where the SNA Board meeting left off – with community agreements. We generated a list of community needs for increased engagement, as well as our own list of agreements to consider adopting in addition to the ones shared at the last meeting (which were adapted from Southeast Uplift). The notes from that activity are available here. We then shared updates for the shower, outreach, and trash programs. In our March meeting we will continue conversations about budgeting, as we recently received generous donations that will allow us to be more responsive to the needs of the community that we serve. Our first priority is investigating a hot water heater for the shower that is within our budget. We will also look at the results of the community needs assessment to decide how to use funds after we have stocked the shower project with plenty of the high-demand supplies.
We encourage anyone who is interested in these efforts to attend our next SNACC meeting on Thursday, March 17th at 6:30 p.m. Meeting details will be posted on the SNA website Monday, March 14th.
The Sunnyside Neighborhood Community Cares (SNACC) Committee Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 17th at 6:30PM.
The Sunnyside Neighborhood Community Cares (SNACC) Committee Meeting will be held on Thursday, January 20th at 6:30PM. Here is the agenda and the zoom link.
Looking forward to meeting with you (virtually due to omicron) this week! We will be discussing several important efforts the committee is working on with opportunities to volunteer including continuing the community needs assessment that we began last month with our shower participants, trash clean-ups, and outreach to houseless neighbors.
We had our November meeting on the 18th. Minutes from the meeting are attached: SNACC November Minutes
