Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the benefits to being part of the legacy Residents Association?
The Residents Association’s goal is to operate, maintain and repair certain recreational facilities and amenities, reserve lands, park lands, signage, lights, decorative lights, walkways, neighborhood entry monument signs, clock tower, traffic circles, landscaping, ornamental features and other features and improvements, and certain upgraded landscaping and irrigation facilities within certain medians and boulevards, all located or to be located within or adjacent to that community in the City of Calgary.
There is also the possibility for the Association to have full time staff to organize events and community initiatives on behalf of the entire community, including Christmas light parades, Movie Nights and Stampede Breakfasts.
Q: What is the difference between a Residents and a Community Association?
In Legacy, there are certain amenities and assets which, because of their unique nature, could not otherwise be provided, as the City would not normally accept responsibility for their maintenance. We intend to hold Legacy to a higher standard than other communities and therefore have created entry gates and fences that would not normally be maintained by the City of Calgary. Other benefits include enhanced maintenance of City Boulevards. A residents association handles the maintenance of the community amenities.
A community Association’s purpose is to give a community a voice and is open and voluntary to anyone in the city. The community association does not contribute to any community upkeep after the developer has finished the community. Other communities who do not have a Residents Association set up by the developer have petitioned the City to collect additional taxes through local improvement bylaws to fund enhanced maintenance of open spaced owned by the City.
Q: Who elects the board of Directors and when does that occur?
These positions are decided by way of nominations at an annual meeting when they can be challenged/altered. As more of Legacy is built, the Board of Directors will be turned over to the residents. WestCreek Developments reserves the right to appoint a certain number of Directors to the Residents Association, based on the remaining inventory owned.
