Welcome!

For nearly a year, you have helped identify programs and projects needed to make your community complete. From environmental safety, affordable housing, education, economy and jobs, and mobility, the Sunnyside Houston community spoke out, and we’re listening.

Your questions, comments, concerns, and recommendations have formed the draft Sunnyside Complete Communities Action Plan featured on this page. Thank you to all who have participated! A special thanks goes to the Neighborhood Support Team members who helped guide the process and ensure that the plan reflects a community consensus.

Our work is just beginning! Sign up for a group here!
