Sunset neighborhood wins revitalization project funds

Cricket Wireless and Rebuilding Together will work with the city to remove graffiti and add a mural.

Cricket Wireless and Rebuilding Together announced Sept. 21 the Sunset Neighborhood was selected to win a revitalization contribution.

“The Renton community is pleased that the public selected Seattle’s Sunset Area initiative for the recent Cricket Wireless online voting campaign,” said Mark Santos-Johnson, community and economic development project manager for the city of Renton said in a media release. “The funds provided by Cricket Wireless will make a positive impact on the Sunset Area neighborhood.”

The two groups, Cricket Wireless and Rebuilding Together, will work with the city to improve the Sunset area by removing graffiti and adding a mural.

The project, according to the release, is set to take place in October.

Arts Unlimited of Renton will also receive smaller donations to put toward needed repairs.
