The West Springs/Cougar Ridge Community Association serves the growing population of the West Springs/Cougar Ridge community which has a rich mix of cultural diversity, abundant natural parks and green space, recreation facilities, and shopping and services at our Community Core.
The Association is a not-for-profit body that has proudly served the residents of our community since 2002 and is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. The scope of our work revolves around many issues in our community including development, transportation, parks and green space planning, plus recreational and educational programs for all ages. Our organization serves as a conduit to City Hall as the voice for our residents.
We are a proud member of the Federation of Calgary Communities, whose mission is to improve neighbourhood life in Calgary by providing services and programs that create, support and sustain vital and representative community associations.
The Community Association holds monthly Board meetings, usually the first Tuesday of each month, to discuss and plan for life and issues in our community. These meetings are open to the public. Our city alderman sometimes attends these meetings as well.
The Community Association:
- Represents your community to the city
- Liaises with the city regarding planning and traffic matters such as the West LRT.
- Plans and organizes fundraising for the community
- Plans and runs community initiatives like:
– Community Recycling

Homeowners take note: All of the above increases the value of your property!
