Welcome to the
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association!
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association is a small group of volunteers who
meet regularly and work constantly to:
- tackle and fix residents’ concerns
- review and adjust development applications
- watch out for environmental concerns
- year-round operation and maintenance of RRROCA park
- run children and community based programs
- provide insurance for supported sport and area usage activities
- communicate area and city issues to the residents
- represent the community to the outside world
- communicate with the Ward 1 Councillors, the Member of the Legislature of Alberta,
and with the Member of Parliament.
Please note that the City communicates overall area issues directly with the Community Association and does not necessarily recognize residents associations as the “voice” of the people.

Questionnaire: Cannabis Stores Near You?
With legalization of marijuana came business interests to open cannabis stores in our neighbourhood. An application for a store at the Royal Oak plaza (#200 – 500 Royal Oak Dr NW) was rejected by the Development Authority, but is pending appeal.
RRROCA wants to submit our community members’ position on this matter. So we are asking you to share your opinion. Thank you.
Survey now closed.

First an overview:

The release of the final results of the survey is delayed until the 1st week of February. There was an overwhelming amount of responses on the last few days before survey closed that the review of responses is taking longer than planned for. Thank you.
