FAQ 08

Why are there so many separate resident’s associations? ¬†Why can’t there be just one resident’s association and community association for WSCR all rolled into one?

Good question.

Private developers are responsible for establishing the residents associations for new neighbourhoods, and The City of Calgary is responsible for the determining the regulatory climate under which these associations are established.

If you have concerns about the balkanization of residents associations, please contact The City of Calgary at 3-1-1, or speak with your Alderman, Richard Pootmans.

We cannot formally amalgamate the many different residents associations and the community association in this area, because that would require getting every single home owner to change the encumbrance on their land title. In the future, however, the residents associations and community association may informally merge our governance structures.
