4/ Project Management
We have some great ideas to help us build a more friendly and connected community. Can you help to bring these to life?

  • Installing natural benches at pathway intersections - these offer seating for all ages and play opportunities for young children
  • Installing shade structures near playgrounds
  • Utility box painting - with a cohesive motif across the community
  • A storage structure in a park - likely a sea container
5/ Technology Update
Google Suite products and other apps can simplify the Board’s work while better serving the community. We need a knowledgeable person to evaluate what fits us best and then to transition the SECA Board to take advantage of these products.

When residents get involved good things happen!

1/ THANK YOU for your letters related to Graywood Developments land use amendment application. At the May 7th City Council meeting, with the support of the the Planning Commission, and our Councillor, Diane Colley Urquart, Council approved C-1N zoning. This means that the commercial development will not include drive-thru or gas station developments.  Thanks also to the leadership of volunteers in our community who led the SECA response, Norm Rousseau (SECA's Director of Development) and Dave Jacobs. 

2/ THANK YOU to those who used the online pothole reporting system and especially to those that engaged city officials including our Ward Councillor. Some of the worst potholes along the east end of Shawnee Drive have been patched. It's still bumpy but at least no one will be damaging their car now. 

COVID-19 is changing our world. 
We are all experiencing the pandemic in our own ways.
Let's be kind to one another and keep safe.

We hope you are managing through the pandemic. If you need help, call Alberta 211,free helpline that connects you to community and social services in your area.

Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park 

Shawnee Evergreen is in such a lovely location, adjacent to the Fish Creek Provincial Park. It's a space that many of us use for walking, biking, photography, bird watching and more. And it's a space we need to help to protect. You can become a Park Protector with a monthly donation.

Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society is an organization that offers a variety of programs to help us enjoy the park and protect the park. Like every organization, their programs are adapting or being postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit their site to learn more about programs
