Dear Sunnyside Community Residents:
We are proud to bring you the September 2007 monthly update on Houston Hope. Houston Hope is Mayor Bill White's initiative to reinvest in several of Houston's older neighborhoods through a combination of stabilizing activities such as coordination of public safety programs, rehabbing existing homes, providing quality new affordable homes and improving infrastructure and drainage. As a participant of the Houston Hope initiative, qualified buyers in the targeted areas may receive up to $30,000 in down payment assistance.
Currently, the Land Assemblage Redevelopment Authority (LARA) has purchased 793 properties citywide 127 these in the Sunnyside area.
Historical fact: Sunnyside's initial plat included only the area south of the Southern Pacific Railroad lines and Holmes Road. This land was east of an oil field called Pierce Junction.
