    Hello,

    we own a home in Wexford Estates. Are we eligible to be members of the Wentworth Resident’s Association?

    Thank you.

    We think it is a natural fit for Wexford homes to be part of the same residents’ association as Wentworth.

    Wexford shares the same area, and shares many of the benefits, such as the parks, common areas, etc that the association pays to maintain. It’s fair that everyone pays into the same fund and there are no “free-riders”.

    There are economies of scale to be gained by joining together, and maintenance services could be efficiently added to the Wexford area.

    We are trying to find a contact person for the developer of Wexford to discover their plans for a Wexford association. Our position would be that the homeowners simply become part of the Wentworth association.

    This should be on the agenda for the WRA Board to pursue in 2010.

    In the meantime, Wexford residents should please feel welcome to attend any WRA events!

    Hello,

    I was travelling on business and therefore could not attend the AGM in March.

    I have left several e-mail messages such as this in the past to try to understand the most basic of information about the Wentworth Resident’s Association (i.e. what is the money used for) and the annual $200 fee, but I have never received a reply.

    When I purchased my home, my builder didn’t mention anything about the WRA and an annual fee (there’s no mention of this in my purchase agreement) and frankly, it was a complete surprise to receive an invoice for the WRA.

    Nowhere on the WRA website does it state what the money is used for. I understand that Dundee, the developer, is responsible for certain aspects of neighbourhood upkeep and overall maintenance and I expect that the City also has responsibilities in this area given that I pay fairly hefty property taxes.

    I would be very appreciative if someone could explain what the $200 annual fee covers and contrast that with what Dundee is responsible for and what the City is responsible for. I would also recommend that a section be added to the WRA homepage to explain what the fee is all about and why it is in place. This would be extremely useful for new residents and I’m sure that a little bit of understanding on the resident’s part would go a long way in terms of the WRA’s timely collection of the $200 annual fee.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance. I t would be very much appreciated.

    All the best,

    Michael.

    I’m writing in concern for the boulevard grass on Wentworth Drive that is now being cut by the Foothills landscaping company. For the past 5 years it was the residents’ obligation to maintain and take care of the boulevard adjacent to our homes.

    However, it looks as though recently the grass is being cut by our landscapers. I’m not sure when this decision was made (or why it’s being done now), but my concern is the lack of effort being made to maintain it. I pride myself on having a well manicured lawn and home (like most residents), but now the boulevard looks awful as the blade is too low scalping the grass down to the roots, leaving black tire marks on the sidewalk, and missing areas around the trees (in some places).

    I would like an explanation as to why the company is now taking responsibility for the boulevard, is it due to some previous complaints? If this ‘maintenance’ is going to continue, then I ask to please take more consideration and care when cutting our lawns. Thank you.

    This is to address the topic of “Restrictive Covenants” and remind residents that live in a community built by the Dundee Corporation (i.e. Wentworth) that this is a legal document that is placed on the land title of each lot when it is created.

    I live in Wentworth (west of 85th Street) and I believe some of the residents are not aware of the Covenants which restrict what can (or cannot) be placed on a property. For example, Recreational Vehicles, Boats, etc. cannot be placed on a property lot and can only be on the street for no longer than 36 hours (according to City bylaw).

    I think this information may be helpful as an aid to keep our neighbourhoods looking clean and organized. I have included the link to the Dundee Development Restrictive Covenants as well as the Good Neighbour Guide provided by the City of Calgary. Please be considerate to your neighbours. Thank you.
