Eau Claire Community Associationc/o Calgary YMCA, 101-3 St. S.W.
About Us:The Eau Claire Community Association (ECCA) was founded in 1992 as a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the quality of living in Eau Claire. It is recognized by the City of Calgary as the official voice of the Eau Claire community. The ECCA by-laws define the purpose and direction of the ECCA and are registered under the Societies Act of Alberta. The bylaws are available at http://www.EauClaireCA.com/about. The community of Eau Claire is located adjacent to the downtown commercial core, bounded by Prince's Island and the Bow River on the north and centre of 4th Avenue on the south, extending from the centre of 2nd Street SW to the centre of 9th Street SW.
Mission:The Eau Claire Community Association strives to create a vibrant connected community. Our approach to planning and development is to enhance the quality of life for our residents.
Vision:Eau Claire is a safe, clean and liveable residential community proud of its natural environment. We are supportive of social and recreational gathering places and relevant businesses that support the community.
Membership:Membership in the ECCA is open to all residents. The annual fee is $6 per household. The majority of Eau Claire condominium complexes (and therefore their residents) hold a membership, paid for by the condo corporation. Business memberships are also available. Strong membership empowers the ECCA to protect the interests of our community. Issues of key interest are planning, transportation and safety. The ECCA’s role is to provide a voice for Eau Claire residents, to help ensure that community interests are being considered and that development is in keeping with the Area Redevelopment Plan.
TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS
