June 2021 Update

Homeowners’ Association News

May was a busy transition month for the community.  As spring clean-up draws to a close and we begin preparing grass and shrub beds for the summer months, you will see a constant presence of personnel from our landscape maintenance contractor, ULS, working in our community.  Discovery Ridge has an abundance of green spaces and the NDHA is responsible for ensuring all of them are looked after.  If you happen to notice an area that needs extra attention, please let us know so that it can be tended to quickly. *Please note that the NDHA is not responsible for landscape maintenance in the new “The Pointe at Discovery Ridge” development.  Tree concerns should be directed to 311, as the NDHA cannot prune or remove trees on cityands.

2021 Fees The annual NDHA fee of $307 is due on June 29th. Please access our website to log in and pay the fee if you have not already done so. You can also check to confirm if your payment has been made and update your contact information as needed. If you are new to the community or have any questions about the fee or your account, please email the NDHA Treasurer at accounts@ndha.ca

2021 Landscaping Projects –There will be one major project executed by the NDHA this year. The nine island medians on Discovery Ridge Way will be transformed to the Xeriscape style that exists in the medians of the main roadways in rest of the community. This is the final phase of the Xeriscape initiative in Discovery Ridge. Work is scheduled to start in June provided the permits are finalized, and the weather cooperates. Community shrub beds and manicured turf will be attended to by ULS as per normal.  If we find that certain spaces require additional mulch or the replacement of a few shrubs that did not survive the winter, we will prioritize and engage our contractor as needed. Please be courteous and extra-cautious of the ULS workers taking care of our community this summer. We all appreciate it when cars slow down to keep everyone safe!

Planter Pots – Flowers and greenery are scheduled to be planted into the seasonal pots near the roundabout in early June, weather permitting. Special thanks to Pixie Gardens for their beautiful work!

Garbage Bin Beautification –The NDHA will complete the remaining bins in our parks this season. Vinyl wraps are being used as an alternative to painting; it lasts longer, looks nicer and is both resistant to and less likely to be targeted for graffiti.
