History

Summerside Community League of Edmonton represents residents of Sunset Valley, Fields of Summerside, Orchards of Ellerslie, Walker Lakes and Lake Summerside residents.

What is a Community League?
At our events, we are often asked what a community league is.  There are 155 community leagues in Edmonton so wherever you live in the City, you will at some point come into contact with a community league either through events, community sports, hall rentals, etc.  A community league is the primary speaking body for the community.  Any resident within the boundaries of the community may become a member.  Summerside Community League’s boundaries are from 50th Street to Gateway Blvd and from Ellerslie Road south to 41st Avenue SW.

A league's members are responsible for electing a Board of Directors.  Summerside Community League’s annual general meeting is held in October each year.  All area residents who have purchased a $25 community league membership are eligible to vote and volunteer for board roles.

A community league acts on behalf of its members.  A league may be able to assume that it's position likely represents the majority views of the community.  We encourage communication with members so that we can accurately reflect the community’s views.

A common function of all community leagues is to bring neighbours together and to:

    Represent the community at large on matters of interest to the appropriate order of government and other organizations (e.g. Traffic issues, new developments, crime prevention, etc.).
    Provide recreation and social programs such as soccer, basketball, family events, etc.
    Develop amenities such as a community hall, rink, playground, etc. for the benefit of its members.


I hope this helps you understand what the role of the community league and how the league can work for you.
