Yes, it is that time of year when your Crestmont Community Association (CCA) has our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Area Development Update (ADU).
Last year was a record turn-out and we are hoping this year will be similar. Not only are we going to have drinks and snacks generously donated by Servus Credit Union in Bowness, but we are also going to have lots of information and updates on all the developments that are going on in and around Crestmont.
Please join us on Friday March 16th at 7:00pm at the Crestmont Hall. Also a great time to renew your CCA membership so you are ready for another year of fun CCA events like the Neighbour Day Block Party, Crestmont Clean-up, Crestmont Kids Day and the Kids Halloween Party.
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.
It is that time of year again on June 26th, 2016 (9am – 1:30pm) when all of Crestmont gets out to clean up their yards, garages, and basements and gathers up the debris and garbage to bring down to the Crestmont Hall where the City of Calgary has packer trucks waiting. GEEP will also have bins for electronics and the Crestmont Community Association will have food, coffee and snacks.
Make it a fun day for your family! We will have pick-up sticks, vests, gloves and garbage bags at the hall so you can take your family out into the neighbourhood green spaces to pick up garbage and debris that blow in from the wind.
We will also set up a free table for items that are still in good condition that you no longer wish to keep. Someone else in the community may be able to use it. It’s all about recycling items in a safe manner.
This is a family friendly event and a good way to teach our children the value of keeping all our spaces clean and to feel like they can contribute in a positive way by giving back to their community.
Please check back here for any updates / changes prior to June 26th.
On June 18th, the CCA with MLA Deborah Drever and the City of Calgary are throwing a community Block Party from 12pm – 3pm to celebrate Neighbour Day!
The party will be on the west side of the storm water pond at the end of the 500 block of Cresthaven Place (see map above). There will be Spolumbo’s Sausages and buns, drinks, prizes, games and fun for all ages. Just look for the big bouncy house and all the happy people enjoying the company of their neighbours.
