Public Service Programs
Community Development, in cooperation with the Leisure Services Department, currently administers two programs available to City of Sunrise senior citizens:
- The Social Services Senior Computer Program provides educational services to promote computer literacy.
- The Medical Transportation Program provides by-appointment transportation services to medical appointments for the disadvantaged elderly.
- The Department also administers an After-School Homework Tutorial Program, offered in cooperation with Broward County Schools and the staff of Village Elementary School. Through the program, homework assistance and tutoring services are provided to approximately 100 students from low-income City households.
The Redevelopment and Grants Division in recent years for the City has solicited funding for programs designed to facilitate safer mobility, improve roadway drainage, and provide a more pleasant roadway environment. Funding has been awarded for City projects on West Oakland Park Boulevard, University Drive and Sunset Strip - covering such improvements as landscaping, sidewalks, swale drainage and irrigation.
Grants from the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) have provided Recreation and Open Space grants so that local governmental entities may acquire, develop and/or preserve land for public outdoor recreation. In recent years, FRDAP funds have been awarded to the City for Oscar Wind Park, Sawgrass Sanctuary Park, and the Civic Center Family/Instructional Swimming Pool project.
