The votes are in from the recent round of District 7 Participatory Budgeting — and the Sunnyside pedestrian safety proposal got a fantastic number of notes — 892 — and came second in its category. As far as we know at this point, that secures the $120,000 needed to make those improvements happen. A big thank-you to all those who took the time to vote.

This is the package of improvements that SNA helped draft, working with Sunnyside Elementary School PTA, Friends of Monterey Boulevard, and other local residents. Congratulations are due all around! Details on what we asked for below.

SNA President Stephen Martinpinto is on the PB committee, and has helped craft a package of ped safety improvements for the neighborhood that incorporates the requests of numerous local residents. There is a quarter of a million dollars available for ped safety alone, and SNA hopes we can bring some of that money to Sunnyside.

More later!
