Welcome to Sunset!
The Sunset Area Transformation Plan continues key investments in Sunset Neighborhood
Sunset is a distinct neighborhood recognizable as a gateway to the larger Highlands area of Renton. A diverse neighborhood, spanning 269-acres and 2,689 residents, the Sunset area has long been characterized by distressed public and WWII-era housing. The Sunset area has significant need for improved housing and services, but it also offers opportunities for strategic community investment. For more than ten years, the City of Renton, Renton Housing Authority, Renton School District, and other partners have been working together with the community to help revitalize the Sunset Area.
The Sunset Area Transformation Plan (SATP) helps guide community reinvestment in the Sunset neighborhood of Renton, WA as one part of the overall strategy to improve the area. The plan was originally created to apply for federal funding. The Plan identifies potential public investments in housing, services, and amenities that would benefit the neighborhood based on identified community needs and opportunities. Three strategies make up the Plan: Neighborhood, Housing, and People. Each is headed by a different principal partner, who is charged with carrying out projects and initiatives to achieve its goals. Together, these strategies aim to holistically—and equitably—transform the neighborhood.
