GENERAL INFORMATION

More About Elbow Valley And Area

Schools

Springbank is the designated community for schools for Elbow Valley. With our unique proximity to a number of Calgary communities, however, there are also multiple private school options nearby.

Local Shopping

With Westhills, Aspen Landing and Discovery Ridge shopping centres all within a few minutes drive of Elbow Valley, you really are closer than you think to all of life’s amenities.

Fees

The community association (Elbow Valley Residents Club – ‘EVRC’) collects monthly fees in order to operate and maintain the community and to provide essential services while protecting the natural integrity of Elbow Valley.

Utility Providers

With rural living, there can sometimes be a fear that common utilities may be harder to access. In Elbow Valley, our residents enjoy the comforts of urban living with access to water, ‘city standard’ waste and other important services.

Golf Courses

With three options in our backyard, you can take your pick of whether you want to hit the links at Elbow Springs Golf Club, the Glencoe Golf & Country Club or the Pinebrook Golf & Country Club.  River Spirit Golf Club is just a 10-minute drive away.

Governance

Elbow Valley is governed by an elected, volunteer Board of Directors that has the fundamental decision-making authority for the community. The directors are tasked with looking out for the best interests of Elbow Valley as a whole.

Original owners in Elbow Valley, along with their builders, contributed $750 to the Communities Forever Fund. Hopewell, the community’s developer, contributed $1000 per home. Since there are 700 lots in Elbow Valley, approximately 1.2 million dollars were contributed to the Communities Forever Fund. These funds were used to build the amenities in Elbow Valley, such as the Clubhouse, boathouse and the Bishop Gray gazebo, as well as to purchase such things as picnic tables, boats and firepits.
