CCA VS CHOA

The Crestmont Community Association and the Crestmont Homeowners Association are two associations currently operating in Crestmont.  The two entities are totally separate from one another, and have no overlap whatsoever.

The Community Association serves to create a sense of community and belonging.  We are a dedicated group of volunteers, who liaise with all three levels of government, deal with resident concerns, respond to development permit applications, and hold events.  We are supported mainly via sponsorships, donations, and grants, and membership is voluntary.  Our membership is $25/year for each household which grants access to all events and board meetings.  We throw three community events, Neighbour Day in June, Kids’ Day in September, and a Halloween party the Sunday before Halloween.  We are a supportive group, always happy to have new volunteers come in and try out board positions, learn new roles, and take a larger part in deciding what happens in Crestmont.  We welcome your questions and concerns to info@crestmontcommunity.org.

The HOA is a compulsory membership, an instrument is registered on each property title in Crestmont.  The HOA is responsible to maintain our community amenities, including the hall, spray park, tot lot, and fire pit.  The HOA  is not responsible for anything outside of their own envelope of property.  The HOA board is currently controlled by Qualico Communities, who has plans to turn the board over to Crestmont residents at some point in the future.  No information has been provided to the CCA regarding the official turnover strategy.  The HOA can be reached via CrestmontHall@shaw.com or by emailing their property manager ajohson@ranchogroup.com.

All other public land in Crestmont is under the maintenance of the City of Calgary, or under the control of Qualico Communities.  If you have a concern about areas outside the purview of the HOA, 311 is your best bet.  Reports can be made online by searching Calgary 311 or dialing 311 from your telephone.

Membership Drive

The Crestmont Community Association invites you to join us or renew your membership before June 1, 2019 in order to be entered into a draw for a two-night stay from a selection of accomodations in Banff, a $100 gift card to The Keg, and two passes for the hot springs.  The prize is co-sponsored by Scott Brayshaw, and Gerard Chiasson, your local Re/Max realtors.  

Community Pathway and Greenspace Cleanup

Please join the CCA on June 1 for a pathway and greenspace cleanup. Bags, gloves, and wildflower seeds can be collected from 9-10am outside the doors of the community hall. All bags, once filled and tied, can be left near the brown bear bins located around the drainage pond for collection by the Parks Department.

Community Garden Opportunity

Through the remediation following the emptying of the storm drainage pond at the bottom of Crestmont, an opportunity has arisen to create a community garden.  This project would need to be led by a dedicated team of volunteers.  For more information about the location and scope of the project, or to volunteer, please email Megan Brayshaw, CCA secretary, at meganb@crestmontcommunity.org
