SAENA is committed to the health and safety of our community and will contribute to the global effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. That is why SAENA will be taking the following actions to better serve our residents:

-We will no longer host the March 23rd Community Meeting.
-SAENA staff will be working remotely.
-Meetings and events will be postponed until further notice, with the exception of the April Board of Directors meeting, which will be hosted on Zoom. More details on how to access that meeting soon!
-SAENA will continue to update you regarding events scheduled for later this season as we monitor updates from the Minnesota Health Department:

We appreciate your understanding in this challenging time and hope everyone stays safe and healthy!

SAENA’s Board of Directors met in November 2019 to set priorities for the future informed by resident’s input on the Community Priorities survey from last summer. The Board of Directors narrowed down all of the amazing ideas to three areas of focus for 2020 and beyond:

  1. Equitable Transportation and Mobility
  2. Environment
  3. Fundraising
