Community News and Events

Season’s Greetings!

New Newsletter publisher

Welcome to our new newsletter for SECA which replaces the one previously published by Minds Design. We welcome this change which will result in better distribution to the SECA area. Delivery is via Canada Post which does not have distribution routes that align with community boundaries. Therefore the SECA monthly newsletter will be incorporated into two newsletters; the Evergreen Bulletin which will be delivered to Evergreen Estates (as well as Evergreen) and the Chronicle which will be delivered to Shawnee Slopes (as well as Shawnessy and Millrise). The SECA boundaries can be found elsewhere in this newsletter. If you have suggestions for items to appear in your newsletter, send them to info@shawneeevergreen.ca. Photos for consideration for the newsletter cover page will be welcomed!

Community Pub Nights

Our first Community Pub Night was held January 17th at the Coach & Horses Ale Room. We were pleased with the turnout of community residents. The winner of the Glenbow Museum tickets draw was Beth Kilbach. Congratulations Beth! At the time of writing this report, our second Pub Night was planned for February 21st which I hope will also have met with success. Our March Pub Night will be Thursday March 21st and will again be held at the Coach & Horses Ale Room (150 Millrise Blvd. SW).

2019 Planned Events:

In addition to monthly Pub Nights, this year’s SECA planned events include:

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

Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) and Residents Associations: What’s the difference?
1. The Shawnee-Evergreen Community Association (SECA) is a volunteer organization originally formed by the residents of the Shawnee Slopes and Evergreen Estates communities. It includes residents in Beacon Hill condominiums, Highbury Place, Shawnee Park, Fish Creek Exchange and The Manor Village at Fish Creek Park. SECA’s 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 most of 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.

3. The Shawnee Park Residents Association (SPRA) will be an organization similar to the ERA when the community has been fully built out and all residences occupied. Until that time Cardel Homes is collecting an encumbrance fee from residents commencing in in 2019.

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