Community News and Events

Season’s Greetings!

On behalf of the SECA Board, we wish you a joyous Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!

There is a renewed energy at SECA thanks in part to the addition of three new Board members. We ask for your support as we deliver our annual events and test drive some new initiatives which we hope will help to build a sense of belonging in our community.

  • Join us for our first Community Pub Night on Thursday, January 17 at 7 pm at the Coach and Horses Ale Room (150 Millrise Blvd. SW near Sobeys)
    • Meet SECA Board members and your neighbours!
    • BYOB – Buy your own beverages.
    • Win 2 tickets to the Glenbow Museum.
  • How about a Block Party, a Community BBQ or a Potluck Dinner? Let us know which of these you would prefer via FaceBook or email.
  • It’s not too late to renew your SECA membership for 2018/19. You are now able to pay via e-transfer! Just click here.
  • There will be no printed newsletter in January as we are transitioning to a new provider. Watch for updates via an e-newsletter.
  • There is one vacant seat on the SECA Board of Directors. We are looking for someone with younger children. Are you that person? If so, please contact Lynn at VP@shawneeevergreen.ca.

SECA Board of Directors’ Meetings

Note that SECA Board of Directors’ meetings will now be held in the library (Room 101) at South Gate Alliance Church 1436 James McKevitt Rd SW.

Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) versus Evergreen Residents Association (ERA)

1. The Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) is a volunteer organization formed by the residents of the Shawnee Slopes and Evergreen Estates communities whose focus is “Working Together for Our Community’s Future” to:

  • manage and direct its social and recreational activities
  • act as an intervener in civic matters (planning and development)

NOTE: Membership in SECA is voluntary

2. The Evergreen Residents Association (ERA) is an organization created by the land developer (Genstar) for the “newly” developed area in Evergreen Estates (i.e. south of the old 146th Avenue) as well as for the rest of Evergreen. On September 1, 2011, Genstar officially handed over control of the ERA to the residents of Evergreen and Evergreen Estates. The ERA now owns and maintains the 17 community entrance features and feature park sites, originally constructed by Genstar in the development of Evergreen and the new portion Evergreen Estates.

All questions or concerns (i.e. garbage pickup, snow removal, burned out lamps, green space damage, etc.) should be directed to admin@evergreenresidents.ca. Further information can be found on the ERA website at www.evergreenresidents.ca.

NOTE: Membership in ERA is compulsory and the requirement to pay an annual fee is collected by the Residents Association through an encumbrance on title.

Newsletter Publisher

As of December 2018, SECA Newsletter publisher (Mind’s Design) has ceased operation.

Replacement publisher is under investigation.
