October Land Use and Transportation Meeting

Hello Sunnyside,

The upcoming Land Use and Transportation (LUT) meeting, October 14th at 7:30PM (at Southeast Uplift) is one you might want to put on your calendar.

We have requested the developer for the proposed project at 700 SE Cesar Chavez Blvd to follow up on their LUT briefing from last May during the first half hour of the October meeting.  David Mullens of Urban Development Group is proposing a 3 story project on SE Cesar Chavez which will include on-site parking.  Details reported earlier this year call for 108 units (16 Studio, 74 One Bedroom, and 18 Two Bedroom units) and 40 on site parking spaces.

The second half hour of the October meeting will involve a discussion of land use and transportation aspirations as a lead into the October 17th “neighborhood visioning” event at the Mazamas Mountaineering Center, located at 417 SE 43rd, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Please feel free to contact Dan Rutzick – Chair of the Land Use and Transportation Committee with any questions at sunnysidelut (at) gmail (dot) com

New Planting Guide From Sunnyside Street Tree Team

Wondering what kind of tree to plant between the curb and sidewalk in front of your home?

The Sunnyside Street Tree Team has created a series of lists to assist homeowners in deciding what to plant where, based on a recent inventory of all the trees in our neighborhood.  You can view the lists by clicking on the street tree tab on this site.

And don’t forget, the next annual Friends of Trees planting is coming up this January!

Neighborhood Visioning

What are your dreams for Sunnyside?

On October 17th your neighborhood association will host a “neighborhood visioning” event at the Mazama Mountaineering Center, located at 417 SE 43rd.

From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. we are inviting ALL Sunnyside neighbors to come and share their ideas for our community.   A lively discussion will be facilitated by Ashe Urban from Southeast Uplift, who has coordinated several successful events of this type in other neighborhoods.

There will be food and drink and socializing and we hope to leave the event with a sense of purpose for the coming year and with some excitement and commitments to make these ideas happen!

October 17th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mazama Mountaineering Center on SE 43rd and SE Stark.  See you there!
