Village People Project

This is your chance to create your own community project, placemaking activity, or event! The Crescent Heights Community Association can support your project by paying for supplies, artist or service fees or honoraria, and your time. We can also help with promoting the event (website, e-news, social media), making connections to community members or organizations, and recruiting volunteers. This application is open to people who live or work in Crescent Heights or who have a Crescent Heights membership as well as non-profit organizations who would like to use this as an outreach opportunity.

Clean the Streets!

Help Us Clean up the Neighbourhood!

Can you help collect litter around the neighbourhood on May 1st and/or May 2nd? From 4th St NW, to Centre St, to Edmonton Trail, from 16th Ave to Memorial Drive, and everywhere in between – there is a lot of ground to cover to make our neighbourhood all clean. Garbage bags will be available from the Tigerstedt Flea Market at 918 Centre Street NE starting April 23. After you are done you may bring the litter home to put in your black bin or call 311.

Tag us at @chcayyc on Instagram or Facebook with a photo of you cleaning up and get a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to Sought & Found and an awesome CHCA t-shirt!

Apology

Unfortunately, the Crescent Heights Indigenous Walking Tours are cancelled. The Crescent Heights Community Association left Many Chief Tours out of a key planning decision for the Crescent Heights Indigenous Walking Tours and did not have a written agreement in place. We apologize for our mistake. We apologize to Many Chief Tours and those who were signed up for the tours for the missed opportunities that our mistake has caused. Our volunteers are learning from this mistake and will be introducing agreements with service providers going forward. Please note, Many Chief Tours provides other Indigenous Walking Tours in Calgary and we encourage you to visit https://www.manychieftours.com/.  

North Hill Communities Local Area Plan (NHCLAP) and Guidebook for Great Communities go to public hearing and Council on March 22, 2021

The CHCA has been negotiating with administration for a series of amendments to the NHCLAP. Several amendments are being considered and we appreciate the efforts of the City. Even with these potential amendments, we believe that the NHCLAP does not meet the needs of our residents in its current draft. After considerable deliberation, the CHCA Board has passed the following motion: 

The Crescent Heights Community Association does not support the North Hill Communities Local Area Plan and on behalf of our residents we request that our community be removed from the plan until further changes and improvements can be made.
