Navajo Street Partners is hosting a mid-year week-long street clean up effort to beautify Sunnyside from June 25-29th. There will be garbage & recycling bags, gloves & vests housed at the Quigg Newton Community Center (look for a sign at the front desk) along with a map so folks can write their names on the streets they will be cleaning. Anytime during that week is fine. Can you please post this to the community? We are a mighty but small force and we’d love to see some of the neighborhood residents participate. Many thanks, Maureen

Genesee, the town along I-70 as you drive up to the mountains, has a history hike, complete with audio snippets about interesting points along the way. It got me thinking about the stories neighbors could tell about Sunnyside... 🤔 Are there any interviewers out there that would be interested in heading up a project collecting neighborhood stories? https://www.geneseefoundation.org/history-hike/

FULL TEST OF OUTDOOR WARNING SIRENS WEDNESDAY 5-9-2018 Denver will conduct a full three minutes test of the outdoor warning siren system this Wednesday, May 9, at 11:00 a.m. This test is conducted annually in advance of tornado season. As a reminder, if you hear outdoor warning sirens at any other time, seek shelter immediately. The best places to shelter during a tornado are indoors, in a basement or interior room, and away from windows. If you are indoors and cannot hear the sirens, that is OK! Sirens are an outdoor warning system designed to alert those who are outside that they need to seek shelter.
Hello Sunnyside United Neighbors! I’d like to invite residents of the Sunnyside Neighborhood to the Vision Zero Community Forum. This family-friendly, community event is focused on safer streets, especially on high priority streets like Federal and Colfax. We’d really like to use this forum to show how other cities have assisted with community engagement and empowerment to make safer mobility environments, so that Denver can move more in partnership with communities. This event will also have a Federal Blvd Photovoice Exhibition by 17 residents from along the Federal Blvd corridor. We will have interpretation in Spanish and Vietnamese at the forum (and, I will make my best effort to get interpretation in any other language requested as well). Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions! visionzerodenver.eventbrite.com Michele
