Be a Water Conservation Champion and You Might Win $100!
You may already know that as a City of Sunrise utilities customer, you can receive a $100 rebate for replacing a qualifying water-guzzling toilet with a WaterSense® High-Efficiency toilet.* If that isn’t enough incentive to save water, Conservation Pays
is sweetening the deal with a contest!
You can win an additional $100 if you convince five friends to take advantage of the rebate program. But hurry: Only the first two Sunrise utilities customers to have their friends’ rebates processed and completed are eligible for the extra cash.
Here’s the fine print:
1. To be eligible to win $100, you and five others need to get a toilet rebate. If you already have a rebate, you’re ahead of the game. If not, apply for one now and get five more people to apply for and receive their rebate during the contest period!
2. The rebate application has a page that asks how they found out about the rebate program. Make sure your friends write your name in their application so that you get credit!
3. The first two people who get five friends or family members to complete the rebate process will win $100 cash! All rebate applications must be submitted by April 30, 2017
, and rebate claim documents must be provided within 45 days. (Please note: This marks an extension
from the contest's original rebate processing deadline of April 30!)
What’s better than that? Well, you and your friends’ water conserving toilets will continue to save water and money year after year. For more information, visit www.ConservationPays.com
or call 800.270.9794.
*Rules apply. For example, you must apply for the rebate and receive approval before you purchase a new toilet. Visit www.conservationpays.com for details
Public Input Meeting: East Sunrise Improvements Master Plan
The City of Sunrise has initiated the development of the East Sunrise Improvements Master Plan
. Find out about the Master Plan process and share your feedback at our first Public Input Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, May 17, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Village Multipurpose Center Gym (2240 NW 68th Avenue, Sunrise 33313).
A Master Plan reflects a community’s long-range vision for its built environment, stimulates investment in non-residential areas, helps revitalize existing neighborhoods, and guides the appropriate use of land in order to protect the public health and safety and to promote general welfare. As a result, this Master Plan has a direct relationship to everyone who lives, works, worships or owns a business in east Sunrise.
Public Input Process
The Sunrise City Commission and City staff are committed to involving our residents, businesses, civic leaders, and other stakeholders in the development of the Master Plan. Working together, we hope to build consensus for a shared vision.
The City has defined a preliminary Vision for the project: East Sunrise will be a safe and desirable place in which to live, work and play, with attractive streets, buildings, and green space and a vibrant local business community.
At the Public Input Meeting, we will discuss and refine the Vision. This is our first step in understanding the goals and objectives of the community for revitalization, reinvestment, and new development.
Please join us on May 17 and at subsequent community meetings as we work together to shape the Master Plan.
