One Sunnyside neighbor is making a green difference on her block. Pam Parker Souza, realtor and SNA member, initiated a greening project on her block, near Detroit St and Flood Ave, with cooperation of her neighbors and the help of Friends of the Urban Forest. First the concrete comes out, then the plants go in. The big planting day is the morning of Saturday Oct 14 — stop by then to see what’s happening and show your support. More info and photos later.

Now that the selection of the developer for the Balboa Reservoir site has been made, the prospect of the new housing project to the south may be more real for residents here.

Community involvement through the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) will be an ongoing process, as the developer is called to mitigate the impacts–parking, traffic and public amenities–on Sunnyside and other adjacent neighborhoods. All residents are welcome at the meetings of the BRCAC. The next meeting is Monday October 2nd, 2017.
