updated SECLA AGM 2020


There are lots of things happening in our neighbourhoods these days, such as infill, LRT development, potential changes to transit routes, community park development, and lots of community events and activities, to name a few. Often these changes or activities will affect multiple neighbourhoods. The South East Community Leagues Association (SECLA) is a non-profit community league area council with members from eleven leagues. SECLA is taking a look at how we can represent our neighbourhoods (from Avonmore to Capilano, see map for more info) in a meaningful way. We'd we’d love your help! Please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey and let us know what’s important to you. Please complete the SECLA survey to share your ideas with us before September 20, 2018.

The City of Edmonton's Zoning Bylaw Team, as a part of the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay Review project, invites you the Seniors Engagement Event.  This consultation is specifically for seniors who live in Edmonton's mature neighbourhoods.  Come and share your opinions.

The Mature Neighbourhood Overlay is a subset of regulations within Edmonton's Zoning Bylaw that controls how new development fits into existing neighbourhoods.  We are reviewing these regulations to provide greater certainty to communities and the development industry, and to ensure that new residential development fits in with the surrounding community in mature neighbourhoods.

The event will occur on June 28th from 1:30 to 3:30PM at the Southeast Edmonton Seniors Association - 9350 - 82 Street NW.  Refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP to Christopher Wilcott, Principal Planner (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 780-442-7579) by 430PM, June 24th.  Space is limited to 25 participants.

Walking around our 60 year old neighbourhood we recognized that a lot of good fruit was falling to the ground and being wasted.  We decided to collect fruit such as rhubarb, raspberries, cherries, pears, and apples that were not being used by homeowners.   We are a not-for-profit society with the mission of connecting this wonderful local resource with those who will use it.  We make jams, jellies, sauces and condiments that are 60 – 100% “rescued” fruit;  we teach preserving courses so people can make their own;  we connect homes with excess fruit to those who want to pick for themselves; and fruit that is excess to the above sources goes to local charities, group homes, community kitchens, small food banks and anyone else who will use it (at no charge).  In 2014 we redirected about 15,000 kg apples and this is just a small portion of the apple trees in our city.    

If you have fruit in your yard that is excess to your needs or you are unable to do the work yourself, here are a couple of options to consider.?

1.  Tell your neighbours about the fruit and invite them to come and pick.  You can arrange with them to leave you a portion in return for your sharing.

2.  Call us at 780-244-0129 and we will let you know about coming to pick ourselves.  Please note that apples are so abundant that we often cannot pick – but if you drop them off at our kitchen we will make sure they go to someone who will use them.

?3.  If you don’t want others in your yard give us a call.  We will tell you where and when you can drop off the fruit or we can arrange for a pick up.  

Call us at 780-244-0129 if you want to be a volunteer picker, know of a place that would use some of this free local fruit, or have other questions or comments.
