ANNOUNCEMENTS



  UPCOMING EVENTS 2018
MEMBERS LOGIN
Effective November 1, 2017, the City of Calgary implemented a number of enhanced dumping restrictions for all carriers using facilities at city landfill sites.

As a result, GFL Environmental will NOT take any flattened 'cardboard' as landfill sites will not allow cardboard to be mixed with household garbage. Loads that have cardboard mixed in are charged a significant surcharge per metric ton for that load. Please, only put household garbage out, for pickup by GFL. Household garbage must be in tied plastic bags and placed in garbage can's with tight fitting lids. Our contract allows for two garbage cans per household per week. Garbage should be put out before 7:30 AM each MONDAY for pickup.

For those residents using Range Recycling for cardboard and other recyclable items the pickup day remains as WEDNESDAY, however the pick time is changed to between 8:30 and 9:30 AM. If you have not subscribed to this weekly service and would like to, please go to the Range Recycling website at www.rangerecycling.ca to subscribe or for more information.

I have been getting a number of complaints from residents lately about mail being delivered to the wrong box. I have experienced this myself in having mail delivered to my box that belonged to someone else and vice versa. I’d like to request two things to address this issue:

In the short-term, if mail is delivered to your box that is addressed to a different box, can you please do one of two things:

Deliver the mail to the house mailbox of the correct address

Write “Delivered to Incorrect Box” and insert in the new mail slot on the community boxes.
The former is the most desirable, but I understand if you aren’t able to do that.

To address this in the long-term, I ask that everyone that has experienced this problem lately to inform Canada Post. I talked to them on the phone this morning and they advised that everyone who has a concern should complete the online form. The more people that complain, the more likely it is that Canada Post will pay attention.  

Here is the link to the online complaint form.

I complained a couple of months ago, but completed one again today.

COMMUNITY ASSOICATION BYLAWS:

As you may recall, at last year’s AGM, we asked you to vote on the acceptance of revised Bylaws for the Association. The vote exceeded 75% approval, thus the new Bylaws were accepted by the membership. They were then submitted to Society Alberta and were accepted in February 2018. The new Bylaws are now in effect. They can be found on priddisgreens.net in the Members Login page.

For those that have a New Resident’s Guide, the old Bylaws can be found in the Appendices under Tab 2 in the Guide. The attached Bylaws actually replace Schedule B only. I suggest you discard Schedule B and replace it with the attached document. 

The revised Bylaws will help the Association operate efficiently and effectively. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


We have had a number of enquiries asking if the Axia locator flags can be removed, especially to allow for lawn cutting. The answer is No! Even if you haven’t seen workers around for a while, if your flags are still up, they are still needed to mark something below like Gas lines, irrigation lines, etc. If they are prematurely removed, it could cause significant delays for the Axia installation, or damage could occur. The Axia crews have agreed to remove the flags once they are no longer needed. This means the lawn cutting staff will need to work around the flags. Dave Harron will work with them to determine the best solution.

So, bottom line, leave the flags in place and they will be removed by Axia contractors when they are no longer needed. Thanks to those who enquired.
Hello Neighbours,

I’ve had a few enquiries from residents about the potential impact of the proposed Valhalla Facility following last week’s Open House. I’ve had a conversation with Suzanne Oel and she agrees that the residents of Priddis Greens will not be significantly impacted by the facility if it proceeds. There are some arguments that it could actually be advantageous for us in terms of improving public awareness of our Hamlet, but there are not any foreseeable negative impacts to us.

Having said that, there is another hearing at the MD Foothills offices in High River next Wednesday at 1:30. If you have something you’d like to say regarding the facility (good or bad), you are welcome to write to the File Manager Heather McInnes, at heather.mcinnes@mdfoothills.com and she will ensure your letter is given to the Council prior to the meeting. You are also welcome to attend the meeting. The address and directions to the MD Foothills offices can be found on their website.

 Regards,
 Roberta

TO PRIDDIS GREENS GOLF CART OWNERS:

As a followup to the previous message on Unlicensed Cart Drivers, it has been brought to my attention that some residents are driving their golf carts on the 'walking path' to travel along Priddis Greens Drive.

This path was built as a 'walking' path only and is narrower than the cart paths on the golf course and is not meant for golf cart use. Please do not drive golf carts on the walking path.

When driving golf carts on Priddis Greens Drive, Sunrise Way or Sunset Way use caution and please keep to the right edge of the roadway. Check behind often and always be sure to use hand signals to indicate left-hand or right-hand turns, especially if there are other vehicles close by. 

TO PRIDDIS GREENS GOLF CART OWNERS:

In a recent E-Mail Newsletter to golf club members, among other items there was an important message regarding a Priddis Greens Golf Club Policy, that we feel should be repeated to residents who own golf carts. With lots of families with young children visiting over this Canada Day weekend this message is especially important.

IMPORTANT: UNLICENSED CART DRIVERS
Please note that only persons 16 years of age and over, and who hold a valid driver's license, may rent, lease or operate power carts. Juniors who are 14 years and over who hold a valid learner's permit may operate a power cart provided they are accompanied by a person who holds a valid driver's license and is 18 years of age or older. This policy is designed to keep our members and their guests safe. Power carts are motor vehicles and those without the proper training and experience to operate such, create a serious liability to themselves and to the Club. (or cart owner)
There will be no tolerance for non-compliance with this policy.

If you were at the AGM Tuesday June 26, you know that I have resigned from the Board after serving as a Director for almost 5 years. It was time to hand the reigns!

The new Board met on Friday and voted in Lynn Donaldson as the new Chair. Congratulations Lynn! All future PGCA Chair communication will come from Lynn, so please contact her at lynn@lynndonaldson.ca with any Board-related requests.

I has been my pleasure to serve you. My best wishes go to Lynn and the new Board as they begin another year of PGCA stewardship.

Regards,
Roberta
Message from Dave:

When residents undertake major household renovations, it is normal for them to rent large waste bins for the contractors to use to hold the debris from the the renovations. These bins are rented and paid for by each homeowner for the exclusive use by their contractors. There are load limits on the bins and when they are full they are removed and the homeowner pays the disposal fee. From time to time there are one or more of these bins located throughout the community at homes undergoing renovations.  

It has come to our attention via photographs that some individual(s) are taking advantage of the opportunity to use these 'private' bins to dispose of their own old or unwanted household items. One bin for example has had chairs, an ottoman, baby car seat, Allen & Roth privacy screen boxes, and even large bones etc. added to the construction debris! This type of trash adds to the load limit of the bin. The homeowner has to pay for the disposal and then often has to rent another bin so their renovation projects can be completed.

From time to time there are one or more of these bins located in driveways throughout the community at homes undergoing renovations. Most but not all of the major home renovations are being undertaken by new residents and taking advantage of using these bins by anyone to dispose of their personal 'trash' in no way to welcome newcomers or treat any homeowner in our beautiful community.

Please be good neighbours and not dispose of your personal household trash in these 'private' bins.

Message from Dave:

By now most of you will have heard or read about the acquisition of Axia NetMedia Corporation by Bell Media Inc.

We have been informed that as of July 18, 2018 our Axia installation project at Priddis Greens and Hawk's Landing has come to a "full stop" until further notice. This is due to subcontractors not being allowed to work on the project (or any other Axia projects) until all the contracts and other legalities have been completed in the Bell acquisition.

We understand that Partner Solutions is heading up the acquisition process and when completed we will be advised on the re-start date to finish the installation in our community.  

Axia and their subcontractors have removed their equipment and no more work wiil be done here until the acquisition is finalized.

Axia have advised that 'locate flags' may now be removed as they will have to conduct a new survey before restarting work. Homeowners may remove the flags if they wish or our lawn maintenance crew will remove them for you when they are on site this week.

LAWN MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Fiddler's Green crews will be spreading the mid-season application of 'weed and feed' fertilizer this week. The fertilizer will be applied after the lawns and ditches have been mowed. Depending on the weather the fertilizing may start on Sunset Way on Wednesday and Sunrise Way on Thursday but in any case the process will be completed by Friday, July 27th.

A reminder that you are not to water your lawns the evening prior or morning of your regular lawn mowing day and until after the lawns have been cut. Lawn maintenance crews can do a much better job of cutting if the grass is not wet. Condos with automatic timers should adjust these systems accordingly.

IRRIGATION SYSTEM MAINTENANCE  
Due to the need to replace a broken valve on the main line, the irrigation system on Sunrise Way will be shut off for the day on Tuesday, July 24th to allow this work to be completed.

GARBAGE SCHEDULE
The schedule for GFL Environmental to pickup household garbage is each Monday after 7:30 AM.
Please do not put garbage out overnight on Sunday. Not only does this invite bears to a potential food source, sudden overnight windstorms can also upset cans and spill garbage. GFL will not clean up these types of spillage.
Message from Dave:

Further to my email on July 21st, referring to the Axia / Bell issues, I shall remain the point of contact between Axia / Bell and the Community and will inform you all as soon as we have any news.

However, I am not the point person for any opinions, complaints or questions you may have concerning Axia. It would be appreciated if you contacted Axia directly by calling their Customer Support line, 1.844.276.2888 and/or by email to Axia by copying this link: https://www.axia.com/contact-us

As of August 1, 2018, I will be retiring as Webmaster for our community website.
I have been with this website since it's inception in 2011, but it is time to pass on the reigns to someone else.
I thank you all for your patience (especially while I have been travelling and not able to apply updates as they happen) over these years.
Lynn Donaldson is your new contact.

Thank you, 
Myra Currie
