Shawnessy Community Background

Shawnessy-Barn-HallThe community of Shawnessy is located south of Fish Creek. Development began in 1981, primarily in the form of single family housing. The east edge of the community includes Shawnessy Town Centre, a major regional shopping destination. The community is well-served by the Shawnessy LRT station, and Macleod Trail provides direct access to downtown or a quick way out of town! Shawnessy is named after British settler Samuel Shaw, who built a log house near Fish Creek in 1882. This history lives on through the almost 100 year-old barn that is now home to the Shawnessy Community Association.

Shawnessy Community Association

Shawnessy-logoThe Shawnessy Community Centre Association (SCCA) spends a great deal of time working on behalf of the entire community as a strong voice on issues such as development and planning, traffic and transportation, recreational facilities and programs, safety, municipal by-laws, and community affairs. One of the goals of the community association is to continue to increase membership and involvement of its residents to ensure continued success in building a close knit, and safe community.

The SCCA works closely with the City of Calgary to represent the concerns of the community residents.

The Shawnessy Community Centre Association has the following objectives:

  • To provide for the recreation of the community and to promote and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities
  • To provide a building or buildings for social and community purposes
  • To provide a meeting place and a forum for the consideration and discussion of questions affecting the interests of the community, and for other various activities in the community
  • To encourage, foster and develop among the membership a recognition of the community and its environment
