On MONDAY May 28th from 5-8pm the City of Calgary, Affordable Housing group will be hosting an information Open House at the Southview Community Hall. I hope you will all come out and learn about the Affordable Housing project proposed for Southview. This will also be an opportunity for everyone in our community to provide constructive input into the project and voice any concerns you may have.
The intent of this engagement is to help inform the decision making process on the project. Our Board has been hard at work behind the scenes getting this engagement to take place. We feel that the project is early enough in the planning process that there is room for a constructive conversation.
There has been many recent situations in the City where these engagement events have been disrespectful to everyone involved, but I am sure we can rise above that here in Southview, and be a positive influence. I hope you will support the Boards work by coming out to the event.
We will have refreshments and I look forward to seeing you.
George Harris, President SVCA
We are super proud of our small crew of very dedicated rink volunteers. Our hockey rink and pleasure rink are both officially open! Please enjoy and spread the word.
PS – If you use the hockey nets, please pull them off the ice after use so they don’t melt into the ice and cause dips in the ice.
And if you want to help maintain the rink please email us.
SVCA is very excited to host Yoga at the Southview Community Hall, Mondays nights from 6:30pm-7:30-pm.

As the fall arrives your new Southview Community Association board is getting ready to get down to official business.
The group is working towards an inclusive and open relationship with all Southview residents. As such, they will be making time prior to all official board meetings to meet folks from the community as well as introduce other key resources that contribute to Southview’s success.
Please feel welcome to come see us Wednesday evening. Bring a neighbour and bring any questions, ideas or feedback you have for the board and the city officials that will be in attendance.
See you there!
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Southview Community Association, I hope you are all having a great summer.
Your new board was elected on June 1st and has been very busy since that time. I‘d like to offer thanks to the outgoing board for their hard work and dedication over the years.
We have a number of initiatives already underway, here is a quick update:
• We have a new Hall Manager who will be streamlining operations and assisting with bookings and rentals of our facilities.
• The Board is actively seeking your feedback on what you‘d like to see in the coming months. We have great infrastructure that we want to better utilize to offer programming in the community. We‘d like to see regular programs and special events that will propel Southview to be one of Calgary‘s best neighbourhoods.
• We need people with passion to help get the ball rolling. If you‘d like to take part, please contact us. This board is looking to connect with all Southview residents that want to help us build a better community. There are current opportunities for the Skating Rink Committee and Hall Maintenance.
• Please stay tuned for more details on a Community Potluck Barbeque to be held at Snoopy‘s on September 17th, 5:00pm.
Watch for a new newsletter in September, and our community website. Look below for other ways you can stay in touch.
