Members of Explorer Post 685 will be going door-to-door during the next two weeks in Sunnyside, conducting a survey as part of an effort to apply for government grant funds.
If the funding is obtained, the money will be spent to pipe the SVID canal along Washout Road, from the North Avenue/Sheller Road intersection north to the new school grounds that will house Sunnyside's new middle school.
The survey has been designed to meet application requirements for a Community Development Block Grant. The survey is currently being prepared by the City of Sunnyside and the Sunnyside School District. The survey area will include approximately 200 randomly selected homes located within a one-mile radius of the new school district property on Washout Road.
