about us

Who We Are

The Sunnyside Redevelopment Authority (SRA) exists to facilitate positive development of the area within the Tax Increment Zone #26 (TIRZ #26) boundaries.

Tax increment dollars collected within the boundaries of the Zone are reinvested back into the Zone through the Board of Directors. The SRA pursues to construct the necessary public infrastructure that will lead to private capital investment in the area that respects the character and culture of Sunnyside, offers a corresponding increase in the tax base, and creates economic opportunity.

It accomplishes this by providing financial incentives through public/ private sector partnerships designed to drive economic development in the Historical Sunnyside Community.
