January 2022 Update

Homeowners’ Association News

The NDHA would like to extend our best wishes to all of you for a healthy and Happy New Year.  It is hard to believe we are coming up on the second anniversary of when COVID officially arrived in Alberta, how time goes by. We hope that the beauty of our neighborhood, the close proximity to nature and all the outdoor pursuits that come with it, have brought you some joy and happiness in 2021 and that this will continue into the New Year.

This past year saw the NDHA take on a variety of projects including but not limited to; Xeriscaping Discovery Ridge Way, wrapping the remaining garbage bins, overseeing the repair work on the waterline and valve feeding our waterfall and irrigation system, planting trees for the median entrance, going through a full calendar year with the new membership platform and hosting a virtual AGM. It is your annual fee that makes this work possible, so please accept our thanks for keeping your account in good standing. We would also like to thank the residents who have reached out to the NDHA with feedback, questions and comments throughout the year.  This connection to the community helps us to address concerns that come up, it helps us to set our priorities and it guides our work. At each board meeting we discuss what issues our neighbours have brought forth and how we can best respond. Please reach out to us at anytime. You can call us at 403-237-9595 or visit our website at www.ndha.ca. We look forward to hearing from you.

At the AGM in November it was noted that 152 residents had not yet paid the annual fee. Please note that an interest charge of 18% per annum will be applied effective December 31st. 2021, per the terms of the encumbrance on your title.  Invoicing for 2022 will begin in February.

This year an unfortunate and unexpected situation arose. Due to new information, the NDHA has been advised that it has no legal access to three (3) publicly accessible spaces in the community. Despite their accessibility, these areas are in fact located on privately owned land, which creates a liability issue for the NDHA. As of December 1st, 2021, until further notice, NDHA services including snow clearing, has ceased in those areas.  The map shows the location of the affected areas. Please use caution if traversing through them, as conditions may have changed from what you have become used to. We are working with the impacted adjacent owners to rectify the situation, if possible. Please contact the NDHA if you have any questions.

The members of the NDHA would like to wish you all a happy and healthy New Year.  We are looking forward to the year ahead and watching our beautiful community pass through the different seasons, we hope you are as well.
