Information for Residents


Sunset Ridge Community Resources

Homeowners Association (HOA)


We are committed to building communities where residents want to live, work, shop and play. While its prime hilltop location and proximity to downtown Calgary and the Mountains make Sunset Ridge a highly sought neighbourhood, its numerous parks and amenities really make it stand out.When we build community amenities that go above and beyond city standards, we establish a Homeowners Association (HOA) to ensure that these amenities are maintained for the long-term enjoyment of all residents. The HOA maintains these extra special community amenities, so you can rest assured that the features you love in your shiny new community will remain in great condition.

Sunset Ridge HOA is a non-profit society. You are automatically a member of the HOA when you purchase a home in the community. An encumbrance, registered on title in favor of the HOA, allows funds to be collected to cover the costs of maintaining amenities and operating the HOA. A board of resident directors (initially Melcor) administers the HOA in accordance with the Articles of Association.

THE BENEFITS

Sunset Ridge HOA (SRHOA)

When you become part of this community, you automatically belong to the Sunset Ridge HOA. In addition to maintaining the “extra amenities” that we build into the community, the HOA helps to foster a sense of community by organizing fun events where neighbours can meet and get to know each other.

Here are some of the current and future amenities that the HOA maintains. See the HOA website for a map and complete list.

  • Main entry feature
  • Bollard lighting in parks and along paths
  • Pond fountain, including winter storage, service & maintenance
  • FUTURE Community Centre

A multi-use path winds through the community of Sunset Ridge. The path is lushly landscaped, dotted with picnic tables and benches, and features bollard lighting for evening safety.
The Sunset Ridge pond with fountain is one of the many features that the Sunset Ridge HOA takes care of.

Sunset Ridge Access Gets Funded!


As Sunset Ridge grows, we've seen increased traffic volume on Sunset Boulevard. Melcor has worked with the Town of Cochrane, Rocky View County and Alberta Transportation since 2011 on a plan for a second access into the community to help alleviate traffic congestion. We are very excited that the new interchange received provincial funding in the fall 2019 budget and hope for a speedy build for this much needed access point.

Diverse finishes include cedar shakes, board & batten, and Hardie board siding to add interest to the streetscape.

Large porches and usable covered landings encourage neighbourliness and interaction with the street. Articulated garage doors complement the character of homes in Sunset Ridge, reducing the overall impact on the façade, while creating a pleasant, memorable and welcoming streetscape to come home to. Speak to our builders today to discover how your new home in Sunset Ridge can be carefully crafted to reflect your personal style.
