Full details on the package in this post, below image. The project that most directly affects Sunnyside is in the first section “Pedestrian Safety”. (Also look for a Parklet project for Monterey Blvd.)

Pedestrian Safety Improvements for Sunnyside Streets – Cost: $120,000
These proposed pedestrian safety improvements, including strategic stop signs, marked crosswalks, and other measures to promote visibility, directly address specific danger spots in Sunnyside and will substantially increase the pedestrian safety. These improvements were assembled with the input of local residents and the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association.
