Another Break-in

2014 April 1
by aduro

Further to our previous post, a Crestmont resident notified us of another similar break-in.

On Friday March 28th between 8-5pm a house on Crestbrook pl was broken into by access through a side basement window. This is a separate break in incident from the earlier post. Several people were home in the adjacent properties and these criminals were still able to enter for a length of time going through the home.

Please watch for unfamiliar vehicles and people in the neighbourhood and contact the police. One set of tracks were found leading directly to the window.

If  you saw anything at all, no matter how insignificant it might seem, please contact the police.

Criminal Activity in OUR Community

2014 March 31

FingerprintLast Tuesday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm a house on Crestmont Dr was broken into.  Thieves entered the home through a basement window.  The entire house was gone through, and many personal items along with alcohol were taken.  No serious property damage was suffered, however the homeowners feel very violated.  Police were called, but it would seem the thieves wore gloves, so no finger prints were lifted.  Foot prints in the snow were matched to some in the house.  Unfortunately the victims of this crime did not have an alarm system.
As a further note, there has been a lot of activity at the top of Crestridge Terrace, a dead end street facing Artist View,  police are called whenever cars are seen parked at the end of that street. In the past there has been a sexual assault on a young girl at that location and many drug transitions have also taken place up there.  People loiter there, drink and do drugs in that location.    Police have also wakened individuals who have been parked there overnight, as they did  not have sufficient funds to get a hotel room.  Garbage is  regularly dumped there and people have been seen defecating there in broad daylight.  Not far from this location a vehicle was stolen.  Many car prowling’s have also been reported.
Residents are asked to be aware of suspicious individuals in the community and report any suspicious activity or individuals IMMEDIATELY  to the police.   Get a description of the person, or vehicle, take a license number and make,  model and colour if you can.
All  Crestmont residents are urged to be on alert to keep our community safe for everybody.

Dear community members:

WinSport would like to thank you for your continued support in the creation of the World’s Leading Winter Sports Institute.

From time to time, major events are held at Canada Olympic Park that may or may not affect members of the surrounding community. WinSport would like to increase our communication with the community and provide regular updates when these events take place.

A major event is upcoming in less than two weeks, with the details provided below.

World Cup Freestyle:
Description: The world’s best mogul and halfpipe skiers will be competing at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park on January 3rd and 4th - and as one of the final qualifying events for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, the competition will be more intense and exciting than ever. More than 130 athletes from 20 countries are expected to attend and Canada has some of the best medal prospects of all.
Date/Time:
- Dec. 31 to Jan. 2 (training)
- Jan. 3: 10:30 a.m. – training; noon to 2 p.m. - halfpipe finals
- Jan. 4: 8:30 a.m. – training; 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. – finals and awards

Potential disruption: Increased traffic near the park in what is typically a busy time of year.

The East service road will be used to access venue, where parking is limited to VIPs and organizers.
A DJ, along with public address announcer will be used throughout the event. Noise will continued to be monitored. Attached is a copy of the noise exemption permit from the City of Calgary.

WinSport truly appreciates your support and would invite all neighbours to take in the action and watch some of the world’s top athletes take part in a preview to the Sochi Olympics.

Board Members Needed

2013 November 25

sharing-is-caringHi everyone!  Due to some unforeseen circumstances the board is currently short some members.  It has been an exciting year so far and coming up to the board AGM in March 2014 we would love to have a full board.  If you ever thought about volunteering, this is a great opportunity for you.  We are currently looking to fill a few positions including Secretary and Treasurer.  Serving on the board would be from now until the March AGM and then if you wish to continue the board election at the AGM will decide.

I have been working with the CCA board for a number of years now and the current board is one of the most active and dynamic that I have seen so far.  Please join us and share what you can offer and contribute to this wonderful community of Crestmont!

Are you handy with a hammer?

2013 November 21
by aduro

RepairsThe Crestmont Community Association and the Crestmont Homeowner’s Association are looking for a team of handy people in our community to help re-build our hockey rink beside the Crestmont Hall.  The Homeowner’s Association has organized a company with a water truck to lay down the temporarily liquid water in the appropriate layers as well as a special liner that is required to sit between the grass and the future ice.  We also have a father & son team in the community that is excited and willing to help out with clearing the snow and maintaining the ice.

Until we can flood the rink and have a team to shovel and maintain the ice, we need to repair the boards.  If you are handy with a hammer and can help out, please contact the board and let us know.  The boards have been sitting beside the hall for years and have been totally neglected.  We now have the opportunity to turn things around and have another great facility for the members of this community.
