INTRODUCTION

Valley Ridge was initially developed in 1992 and the community association was organized in 1993.  Valley Ridge  is located in NW Calgary in between the TransCanada highway and the Bow River, just west of Stoney Trail.     The City of Calgary's 2014 census results (http://www.calgary.ca/CA/city-clerks/Pages/Election-and-information-services/Civic-Census/2014-Results.aspx ) reports Valley Ridge having a population of 5,518 living in 1,904 residences.  Valley Ridge is in the final stage of build-out with Melcor's Valley Pointe development at the west edge of the community nearing completion.  The community has a considerable amount of green space that includes the Valley Ridge Golf Club.  The VR golf course (http://www.valleyridgegolf.com/) is a privately owned, semi-public course. 

To the south, across the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) lies the smaller and newer community of Crestmont with a 2014 population of 1,514 living in 473 residences.
