SNAIL - A Neighborhood Organization
In the heart of Sunnyvale, California

Welcome SNAILs!

Welcome to SNAIL - a neighborhood organization comprised of nearly 1,500 homes located in the north-central part of Sunnyvale, between Hwy 101, Maude, Mathilda, and Fair Oaks Avenues.

Our purpose is to renew that "old-fashioned neighborhood" feeling in our area, to be better informed about the city services that are available to us, and to provide a "united voice" with which to express our concerns to the City of Sunnyvale.

SNAIL Traffic Safety Video
to support the requests for changes and improvements on Borregas, Morse and Duane.

Watch the Video (Dropbox).
Read the Letter (PDF).

The video was presented to Council on August 25, 2020 to demonstrate serious and growing traffic issues within the SNAIL neighborhood. For years SNAIL residents submitted their concerns to the city, and nothing has changed, not a single suggestion or idea has been implemented. This 3-minute video should speak louder than words. It was intended to shock and generate some reactions from Council members and City Staff. A series of CD Roms with the video and its accompanying letter were dropped off to the following folks at the city:

  • City Council
  • City Clerk - David Carnahan
  • City Manager - Ken Steffens
  • DPS Chief - Chief Ngo
  • Staff person for the Active Transportation Plan - Lillian Tsang
  • Staff department manager for the Active Transportation Plan - Dennis Ng
  • Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee
