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.

2018 Crestmont Christmas Market

It’s finally here!!!   The 2018 Market is full of exciting vendors who will be selling their beautiful products, many of them handmade crafts.  We think this is going to be the best Crestmont Christmas Market EVER!!!

It all begins this Friday (November 16) at 4:00pm – 9:00pm and then again Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm.

We have quite a bit of change-over so there will be a different collection of vendors for you to check out each day.  

Here is a link to a photo album containing a selection of the many things that will be available for you to get all your Christmas Shopping done early this year.

Also, from 11am – 1pm on Saturday and Sunday we will have live seasonal music from Doug Taylor

Please stop by, we look forward to seeing you!

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

Snack Bar at Movie in the Park

Your CCA is holding a snack bar during the Crestmont HOA presented event, Movie in the Park, showing A Wrinkle In Time.  Friday, September 7, as soon as it’s dark enough to see the screen.  The movie will be set up directly behind the hall, the snack bar will be just outside the daycare doors, under the overhang.  Bring your loonies!!

Messy Greenspace

We have been receiving many complaints about unkempt greenspaces in our community.  If you have concerns about dead trees, overgrown pathways or boulevards that need attention, we urge you to report them to the City of Calgary through the 311 mobile app, or by simply dialing 311.  The more reports we make as a community, the more likely we are to get attention before the snow falls.
