History of the Crescent Valley Community Tenants Association
In 1950-1951 the Federal / Provincial (FP) Government decided to build some low-income housing that were
three and four bedrooms apartments, along Churchill Boulevard, that project was FP 1.
In 1952 there was more housing built on MacLaren Boulevard, that was FP 2 and then in 1953 buildings on Taylor Avenue were constructed,
that was FP 3.
These buildings are now Crescent Valley.
In 1990 the Tenants Association was started at 55 MacLaren Boulevard. and the Crescent Valley Community Tenants Association have been there for nearly 30 years.
Membership fees are $4.00 if you buy March 31st, after April 1st its $5.00 per family per year.
The Tenants Association has been here to help families out over the years, they have helped family’s take their child to Halifax more that once and they have helped families if there was a death in the family and they have been here just for everyday problems
They have tried to keep things safe in the community one way they did that was they lobbied for a guard rail on the corner coming down into MacLaren Boulevard.
They even hosted the very first Town Hall meeting with Councilor Peter McGuire almost 5 years ago at the Somerset Police Station.
That is when they started that extra surge, putting in our complaints about the neighbourhood.
From there they wrote letter to Common Council about our sidewalks and seeing about our snow removal along with other things.
They have for many years have what we call our Street Light Committee.
If a light goes out they call and have it replaced.
Now working with the Housing and the City they have better lights in our backyards and front streets.
Criminals can’t hide in well-lit areas.
They also have a lot of other committees like, Honours and Awards, Transportation, Hosipitaly, Block Parent, Sports, Garden and others.
They have a month-to-month calendar of events that we follow and we do bingo’s every Sunday night.
They do special things for the children, like our Community FUN DAYS and March Break activities where everyone enjoys themselves.
They could not do any of this with out the help of our volunteers, so thank you to all who helps out, through out the year.
The current president of the Crescent Valley Community Tenants Association is Janet McLaughlin.
