About S.E.C.A.

How We Got Started

Our grassroots, non-profit community group began in 1994 when South Edison homeowners got together to clean up a neighborhood eyesore. Once that nuisance was resolved, these property owners began to find new ways to create a sustainable future for our community and to make positive changes throughout Edison Township, especially in South Edison. Today, the South Edison Community Association is a group of “neighbors helping neighbors.”
