Who We Are
The Swift Creek Estates Homeowners' Association is an incorporated entity established and governed in accordance with the Restrictive Covenant and Articles of Association of The Swift Creek Homeowners’ Association.
Swift Creek Estates rests peacefully on the rolling hills of Springbank in Rocky View County where the prairies meet the mountains just 5 minutes west of the Calgary, City limits. A place so breathtakingly beautiful, quiet and peaceful that hawks, Canada Geese and other birds are in abundance with regular visits from deer, coyotes and the occasional moose. With only 59 homes nestled on 2 acres parcels, we cover 150 acres including 32 acres of common area with wide open spaces. Swift Creek’s natural beauty and charm is the ultimate retreat for our homeowners.
Membership in the Homeowners' Association is exclusive to properties to which the HOA Covenants are attached. Swift Creek Estates Homeowners Association members are governed by Covenants and Design Guidelines. Both are legally-binding documents. The Association Covenants stipulate the purposes, membership and related logistics of operating the HOA as well as govern the use and maintenance of member property both personal and common. The Design Guidelines govern more specific architectural characteristics of homes and yards. All member homes must be in compliance with both the Covenants and the Design Guidelines.
All Homeowners' Associations have covenants, and many have related design guidelines. Both are intended to preserve and promote property values and protect homeowner investments by ensuring everyone that certain things cannot be done that could have a negative impact on property values. The design guidelines in Swift Creek Estates were crafted to promote a specific character of Premium Country Estate Homes.

Homeowner Association Fees
HOA fees for 2014 were mailed on April, 30 2014. The fees for Jan - Dec 2014 are $1400.00 per property plus GST and are due on June, 15 2014. Payments received after June, 15 2014 are subject to late fees.
Homeowner fees pay for Common Area maintenance such as snow removal, cutting of grass, spraying of weeds, tree/plant watering and care, in addition to taxes, insurance, public lighting at the front entrance and mail structure, accounting / legal fees and administrative supplies. Remaining HOA funds are committed to community enhancement projects.
The members unanimously voted in favor of placing a late penalty of $100.00 on fees not paid within 30 days of the due date and further authorized placing a lien against any property whose fees remain unpaid 45 days following the original due date and to remain until all HOA fees, penalties and legal fees are paid in full. All Homeowner fees are needed to maintain and beautify our community.
