Huge thank-you to everyone who is participating.

Drainage Repair and Traffic Issues – 61 Ave and 109 St

On October 8, 2020, inspection of a sewer trunk line 23 metres below 61 Ave, found a 2.5-metre-long opening along the top of it. Further inspection at the intersection of 61 Ave and 109 St found materials around the trunk line had also eroded creating a void.

EPCOR placed roadblocks, reduced speed limit signs, and local traffic only signs in the area. Edmonton Traffic Enforcement were in the area for a short period to ticket speeding motorists or those not obeying traffic signs (i.e., not coming to a complete stop or performing illegal U-turns). The city eventually placed rerouting information in the surrounding areas.

Estimated completion of the repair work is now July 31.

For a update from EPCOR, please review their most recent update: EPCOR March 2021 Update

Registration is now open for the 2021 Soccer Season.

REGISTRATION MARCH 15 – APRIL 15

Registration includes training fees only as there are NO GAMES at this time. Once AHS lifts the COVID 19 restrictions, SWMSA will collect additional fees.

Registration for the 2021 Soccer Season is online at emsasouthwest.com/play/registration.

Allendale does not have a volunteer soccer coordinator so no plans were made to have a team. But keep your community in mind since Allendale has large field spaces so close by. If you are interested, possibly for this year or next, complete our volunteer page to join the board then get in touch with EMSA.

Allendale Community Hall Grounds Construction

Construction of Phase 2 of the Allendale Grounds Enhancement Project will begin in August.  Please note the following:
  • The construction fence is now up and demolition will occur shortly
  • This project will retain the west side basketball court, will add a naturalized park area of plants, trees, a pergola, and park benches. On the east side of the ‘ park area’ there will be a small multipurpose recreation area that can be used for street hockey, outdoor yoga, etc.
  • The construction of this project will take approximately 6 weeks.
  • Entrance to the tennis courts will be moved to the access gate off 105A street.
  • For the duration of construction there will be no access to the basketball courts.
