The East Village Neighbourhood Association (EVNA) was formed in 2011 to make Downtown East Village a healthy, save, vibrant place in the heart of Calgary and is incorporated under the Societies Act. As a neighbourhood association, EVNA champions the development of Downtown East Village as a thriving neighbourhood community. It works in partnership with a wide range of public and voluntary sector agencies to improve services and facilities for local people.
Spanning 49 acres between Fort Calgary and the downtown business core, East Village resides at the heart of downtown Calgary. A desirable piece of real estate that achieves the highest ideals of “location, location, location.”
The boundaries of the Association are the geographical area comprising the municipality described and known as Downtown East Village generally bound on the north by Confluence Way; on the east by 6th Street SE; on the south by 9th Avenue SE; and on the west by 3rd Street SE.
In 2006, city council approved the East Village Area Redevelopment Plan which aims to reshape East Village into the vibrant urban community it was over a century ago. Now home to 3,600 residents (mainly seniors) the redevelopment strategy is to expand the community to accommodate additional residences and business.
To support an inclusive, thriving, and vibrant East Village where all are welcome to live, learn, work, and play.
To encourage conversation and interaction to create a sense of belonging and ownership for all who live work and play in East Village.
