Avenue’s Best Neighbourhoods

Everyone had a great time at the Acadia Community Winter Carnival yesterday!  It’s one of the community events that’s led Acadia being named 4th best neighbourhood by Avenue Magazine Survey in 2016.  The year before, Avenue’s Best Neighbourhoods Survey put us in the third spot!

Avenue’s Best Neighbourhoods

I encourage you to take 5 minutes to take their survey.  Do it now, there’s only a few more days to share your thoughts on your awesome community!

Remember all the great things your community has to offer when filling out the survey.  Acadia is well situated in the city with easy access to downtown and onto many arterial road choices if you’re exploring outside the community.  We boast green space, many school choices, diverse places of worship.  With the Acadia Recreation Complex, Acadia Aquatic & Fitness Centre & Osten & Victor Alberta Tennis Centre, we’re a hub for active living! Our active Community Association is often recognized for it’s engagement.  Our community offers a number of housing choices, which attracts all the benefits of having people from all ages, wages and stages of life sharing a space.

Final Reminder – AGM

Our AGM is tonight!

Acadia Community Association Annual General Meeting

Residents must purchase their annual memberships at least 30 days in advance (Aug 30 cut-off) of the AGM in order to vote.  But you can still come and buy your membership tonight.  Also, the ACA has a few vacant board positions that could be filled at the AGM.

Memberships can be purchased directly at the ARC (cost is $10 for charter renewal, $15 for single membership, and $25 for family & non-residents).

With membership comes many benefits, including discounts at the ARC and several local businesses.  The ARC is home to many great programs that help make Acadia a wonderful place to live.

Support your community!
