AGM Friday March 24

Crestmont Community Association AGM

Please join us on Friday March 24th at 7:30pm for our Annual General Meeting.  This past year was the most active and eventful in the history of the Crestmont Community Association.  We held or participated in a record number of events (eight):

  • Police Safety Chat
  • CCA & VRCA Community Garage Sale
  • CCA & HOA Neighbour Day Block Party
  • Crestmont Cleanup
  • Kid’s Day
  • CCA & HOA Movie in the Park
  • Kid’s Halloween Party
  • Crestmont Christmas Market

In addition there was a significant amount of work accomplished on your behalf by the development committee.

Please consider throwing your hat in and volunteering for us this coming year.  All board positions are always open at every year’s AGM.  This year we are looking for a Secretary and a brand new position to be filled that we are calling “Event Coordinator”.

If you have ever wanted to give back and add some valuable board experience to your resume, please consider joining us on March 24th.  For more information on being a board member, or just volunteering in general, please contact us.  We look forward to another wonderful year and you are all a major part of our success.

Development Committee Presentation

At this year’s AGM you won’t want to miss the development committee‘s update.  Did you know that there are several major development projects going on around Crestmont that directly impact you as a homeowner?  We have updates and information on all of them.

We will also have snacks and plenty of information to share so please join us!  Check back here as we get closer to the end of march for any updates.

Crestmont Kids Council

We invite Crestmont kids ages 13 – 17 to join the first ever Crestmont Kids Council (CKC).  This is a great opportunity to learn new skills, get some great experience for your resume, and give back to your community while providing a voice for the youth in the community.  Come to the AGM and throw your name it for the CKC.

Thank you,
Al Del Degan, CCA President

City of Calgary Bylaw Changes Survey

The Community Standards Bylaw promotes good neighbour relationships through regulation of neighbourhood nuisances like fire pit use, noise, weeds and grass, and untidy properties.

Over the past year, the City of Calgary has conducted a review of this bylaw to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of Calgarians.  The review found that while most of the Community Standards Bylaw meets citizen needs and effectively addresses neighbourhood issues, there are some areas of the bylaw that can be improved.

A number of bylaw changes are being considered and we would like your feedback on these changes, you can find the survey here.  Your input is greatly appreciated and it will be used to help make decisions on the proposed amendments to the Community Standards Bylaw that will be provided to Council later this year.

New Crestmont Bulletin Board

Hey Crestmont Residents!  Do you have a babysitting service?  How about a small home-based business?  or maybe you are looking for someone to Car Pool with?  Maybe you have a coffee table to sell or a pair of skates to give away to someone who could really use them.

Now as a Crestmont Resident, you are welcome to post your information on our new Crestmont Bulletin Board system on our website.  The link will remain at the top-right of our page so it is easy to find… it’s just below our newsletter signup link (which you should also do if you have not already!)

ALL posts on the bulletin boards are moderated so it *may* take a bit of time to get your listing posted, but we will try to get to it as soon as we can.  There are a number of categories so you can post in:

Take advantage of this FREE service from your Crestmont Community Association.

Also, if you can think of other categories that we should have then please let us know.

Happy Posting!

New Board History Page

Crestmont Invited to Hitmen Game

As you may have heard, the entire Crestmont community has been invited to attend the Hitmen game on March 13th at 4:00pm.  The Crestmont Homeowner’s Association will be providing transportation to and from the game and will be having a pre-game party at the Crestmont Hall.  For more information check out the Crestmont Hall website

The NEW Crestmont Kids Council

Crestmont Kids CouncilIt is time that the children of Crestmont had their own voice!  The CCA is looking to put together a Crestmont Kids Council (CKC) to be formed by volunteers in the community ages 13 to 17 years old.  This will be a working board and the president of the Kids Council will have a non-voting seat on the regular CCA board and attend our meetings to keep the communication between the CCA board and the CKC open and flowing.

 

The CKC will be expected to assemble their own, mission statement, bylaws, budget, board positions, and monthly meetings.  They will also be welcome to help plan and execute the kids-related events happening in Crestmont, including the Kids Day and Children’s Halloween Party.  They may also come up with some of their own events and initiatives for kids in the community.

This is a wonderful experience and character building opportunity for the bright and focused children of our great community.  This is a serious commitment and the CKC will be self-sustaining and independent.  It is not a playgroup or babysitting service, but a serious team who will be charged with making Crestmont even better for it’s younger residents.

Any Crestmont Residents in the 13 to 17 age range who are interested can contact the CCA President (or their parents can) via the email address info@crestmontcommunity.org.
