Annual Fee

Background

Your annual CRRA fee is used for these additional operational, maintenance and replacement services at a level of service over and above the standard of service provided by The City of Calgary, to the extent legally permissible, for the public utility lots, environmental reserves, municipal reserves, public walkways, road boulevards, road medians, entrance features and associated community and related signage.

In other words, the CRRA fee is used to enhance and maintain the greenspaces (boulevard medians, entrances, etc) in Cougar Ridge.

The CRRA fee is a legal requirement and has been registered with Alberta Land Titles as an encumbrance on each and every residential property that was developed wholly, or in partnership with United Communities Inc. This means that when you signed off on your home purchase, you signed an agreement to pay these fees.

The fee is currently set at $108.15  including GST. Fees run from January 1st to December 31st every year. The annual invoice is normally mailed out to residents in May of each year, and due June 30th.

Effective in 2015, there is an option to make on on-line payment via Interac eTransfer for a fee of an additional $6.00.  Email nicole@acms.ca; you will be prompted to setup a security question and answer.  The security question must be: “Who is your management company?” The answer must be: ACMS16 (you must use capital letters). In the subject line of your email you must provide your NAME and ADDRESS to avoid delays in processing.

Effective October 1st, 2012, the CRRA has contracted Accredited Condominium Management Services (ACMS) to manage our financial, administration and collections processes. The CRRA Board, comprised solely of volunteers, simply does not have the manpower to do all the billing and accounting plus collections. ACMS will from this point forward be sending out all yearly invoices and requests for late payments, as well as final collections notices. ACMS are doing this on behalf of the CRRA board and have our authority to do so.
