The Campus Neighborhoods Revitalization Corporation (CNRC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was created in October 2002 to assist or engage in developing, designing, financing and implementing urban land use plans designed to eliminate blight, improve conditions, and prevent future deterioration in the neighborhoods surrounding the West Virginia University campus.
In 2008 the City of Morgantown designated CNRC as "developer" of the Tax Increment Financing project for the Sunnyside TIF District. Hence the moniker "Sunnyside Up".
CNRC's principal aim has been to develop plans that will upgrade, replace, and build new infrastructure--water, sewer, sidewalks, streets-- to meet the demands of burgeoning growth and development in this neighborhood. Phase II of the infrastructure plan will be completed in August of 2017.
Beginning in the Fall of 2017, Phase III will begin making further public improvements to the Sunnyside Area.
We hope you will go on to browse the various pages of this website and come back often to witness the progress we are making in the revitalization of Sunnyside. Thank you for visiting.
The photo above represents a celebration following completion of Phase I of the TIF Project for Sunnyside in 2011. Over the past three years, between 2011 and 2014, the Campus Neighborhoods Revitalization Corproation Board of Directors has worked hard to identify the components for Phase II of the TIF Project slated to begin in May, 2015. How the Sunnyside Up Board made its way from Phase I to Phase II of the TIF Project will be detailed as photographs, documents, minutes of meetings, and ongoing initiatives find their way into the pages of this website.
