Sunnyside

The Sunnyside Complete Communities Action Plan is online! The Action Plan outlines the vision, policies, goals and projects that have been identified by stakeholders over a six-month planning process that included four large public meetings and an examination of nine local community plans and studies. Over 760 leaders, stakeholders, and partners attended the public meetings and provided valuable input and guidance. The goals and projects work toward a vision of a healthier, more resilient, prosperous, and equitable future for the community.

Neighborhood Profile

landSunnyside SN #71 is bound by IH 610 on the north, Sims Bayou on the south, Martin Luther King Blvd on the east and Hwy 288 on the west. The area is within Council District D.

Sunnyside was one of Houston’s first communities platted in the early 1900s just for African Americans. The area was annexed by the City of Houston in 1956 but remained without basic City services such as running water, sewer, paved roads and drainage.

Due to civic pride in the area, the Sunnyside Civic Club was formed to address some of the issues of basic services. The area was serviced by a volunteer Fire Department.
