Welcome to Sunnyvale

Message from Mayor Saji George

Mayor Saji George photoUniqueness. That’s what Sunnyvale is all about.

A long-time commitment to remaining a lower-density community with a focus on maintaining a strong rural element, an exemplary school district and citizens who are active and involved in the events of the community are the hallmarks of Sunnyvale’s difference from any other city or Town. Ours is a community of special qualities and people who moved here because it isn’t like anywhere else.

It is our hope that all who live here, move here or merely visit for a while will find their Sunnyvale experience a special one. As your governance team, your Mayor and Town Council are focused on enhancing the quality of life in Sunnyvale while continuously striving to improve our public services and customer service provided by the Town staff.
