The Crestmont Hall was vandalized on October 17th likely sometime after 11:30pm.  This activity has been reported to the police.  There was significant damage done. The concrete garbage bin was thrown off the side of parking lot near the rink.  There were several large concrete blocks broken all over in the parking lot causing a serious safety risk.  I myself almost crashed into them in the parking lot this afternoon at 1:30pm.  Also a concrete sewer grate was stolen and a garbage bin had to be stuffed in there for now. Please take caution in the parking lot!

We need to be on the watch for any suspicious behavior and please report it by calling the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.

Snowfall Tree Debris Management

2014 September 11

Fallen Tree Branches from Heavy SnowSnowfall Tree Debris Management

Recent snowfall has caused damage to many trees throughout the city, leaving tree debris on both private property and City property.

All three City landfills – Spyhill, Shepard and East Calgary – are accepting tree debris from the snowstorm at no charge until further notice. Customers arriving at the scalehouse should identify that they are bringing tree debris and must not mix the debris with any other waste material for it to be accepted free of charge.

Alternatively, tree debris can be cut into 4-foot pieces in length and stacked beside waste and recycling carts to be picked up with regular collection or at a later date, depending on our resources.

To help keep regular garbage and recycling pickup on schedule, and to avoid damaging City equipment, we ask that Calgarians do not put tree debris in their blue, black or green carts.

Calgarians may notice a disruption with City services such as power outages in City facilities and delayed garbage and recycling collection due to tree debris blocking back lanes. We thank Calgarians for their patience as City crews work to manage all effects of the recent snowfall.

Please be safe as many drooping tree limbs still pose a safety threat. We continue to work on a debris management plan and will communicate with Calgarians later today how we will be proceeding. At this time, we are still focused on emergency response to fallen tree debris on roads and impacts from power outages throughout the city. Safety is our current priority.

Crestmont Community Call to Action

2014 September 5

This Monday, Calgary City Council will vote on an issue that will cause major changes to our
community. They will vote on building a new retail center larger than Market Mall right at the
bottom of the hill where the current interchange is.

This development will force all traffic (residential, commercial, retail) into one single intersection.

The result will be longer commute times and jeopardize emergency access to and from our

Here is a message from a local resident on August 5th, 2014…

10:15 am today I saw the same guy who has been going through our recycling bins and weaving in between homes in our community. 

This time he was working with another man. They would load up their large green bag and other garbage bags and empty them in their red car.
Once again I reported this to the police and they said they would send someone out.
What was interesting is that another man (blond hair) in a FJ Cruiser with custom BC license plate approached one of the men and had a conversation with him. The FJ Cruiser was also driving around our neighborhood but then parked on Cresthaven Rise and Cresthaven Way.
Not sure if these guys are linked in any way or why the driver of the cruiser would stop to speak to one of these characters but please keep your eyes out and report anything even if remotely suspicious.

Suspect? Suspect?

Please stay sharp and report any suspicious activity to the police immediately, it does not matter if you think it is important or not.

Update:  Apparently the guy from BC is going door to door with a clipboard and a backpack.  If anyone has any information please let us know… are you on the WhatsApp community network?
