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.

The harder you work,

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.

AXIA High Speed Internet UPDATE 
- February 11, 2018

With the fluctuations between periods of extreme cold and then short periods of warmer weather and the accumulation of snow, it has made it cost prohibitive for AXIA contractors (Cross Cut Directional Boring Ltd. and J2Link Group Inc.) to keep mobilizing equipment and trying to work on the project for short periods of time when there is a break in the weather. The following is a summary of where the AXIA project is now and what is scheduled over the next several months. 

Main Line Cables Placed
* All conduit and cable placements are completed from the junction of Hwy #22 and Priddis Valley Road to the Remote Cabinet at Hawk's Nest Gate.
* All conduit and cable placement is complete from the Remote Cabinet west to the corner at #10 Sunset Way on the Priddis Greens side.
* The Remote Cabinet is in place and waiting for power service to be installed.
  Note: The Remote Cabinet is the base from where all the homes and other facilities in Priddis Greens and Hawk's Landing will be serviced from. 

Splicing
* Splicing is starting the week of February 12th and will continue until they have completed all the sections that have been placed and ready.
* The Remote Cabinet will have power installed be turned up and ready for testing of service to it by February 23rd.

Service Drops to Homes
* All activity on service drops have been stopped until early spring now, due to snow cover and depth of frost.
* The contractors are not proceeding with 'drops' to homes in these winter conditions to minimize private property disruption, damage and rehabilitation.
* The contractors will be brining in several 'drop' crews to complete the remaining work as soon as possible in the spring.

All remaining conduit and cable placement on Sunset and Sunrise Way and to all the Hawk's Landing subdivisions will continue as weather permits but this work will only commence based on the forecast being for warmer weather for an extended period.

The tentative completion schedule is now May 31, 2018, however they will do everything possible to improve on this date but they are restricted by the weather and ground conditions. As they proceed they have agreed to provide further updates on completions and any schedule adjustments.
RE: Walking Path UPDATE 27 February 2018

Today (February 27th) we have officially CLOSED the Walking Path.

We have continually monitored the water flow in an effort to prevent ice from forming on the walking path again. During the last month, we were able to work on the creek system and pump water out of the Hawk #18 'holding' pond and have it flow into the Hawk #2 pond on two separate occasions, when there was a brief break in the weather. This proved to be somewhat successful until this past week when the creek overflowed its banks and water came through the trees onto the path creating a thick covering of ice and the culvert under Priddis Greens Drive became blocked with ice and snow.

The MD crew came out today and they were able to steam and melt the ice in the culvert so that water is now flowing through to the Hawk #2 Pond. However, with the colder than normal temperatures and snowfall amounts we have experienced, the ice build-up on a large section of pathway is now too extensive to be able to clear to open the pathway.  

The walking path will remain CLOSED until the ice melts naturally this spring and it is safe to use again.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and please exercise caution when walking on the road.

Our Annual General Meeting of the Priddis Greens Community Association will be held on June 26th, 2018 at 7 PM in the President’s Room at the golf course.  
Attendance is important as a quorum of 40% of voting members is required to conduct the business of the meeting. Here is a Draft Agenda and a Draft of the Minutes of last year’s AGM.  
Please notify of me at your earliest convenience of any items you would like added to Other Business. I will send out a final Agenda closer to the meeting. 

Please note the AGM will be followed by an information session designed to help people understand the relationship between the various governing entities (PGCA, Condo Corporations, Co-Op, etc.) and some of the important processes and documents relating to each. It is critical that every condo corporation is represented by at least one person at this information session. I would ask that each Condo Corporation President ensure representation for their condo corporation.

 As we look ahead to the upcoming Annual General Meeting of the PGCA, I would like you to think about giving of your time and talents as a Director on this important Board. The Board’s key functions are:

- Plan, prepare and host social activities that bring community members together.
- Act as a central point for information sharing amongst the community members and various other organizations (e.g. emails, website, information sessions, meetings, etc.).
- Administer the Priddis Greens Restrictive Covenants and Architectural Standards.
Act as a coordinating body for special projects to enhance our community (e.g. walking path, pickleball, community signs, etc.).
- Act as an advocate for the community to other organizations such as the Priddis Co-Op, MD of Foothills, RCMP, Priddis Community Association, Golf Course, etc.
- Provide coordination for other community services and initiatives as needed.

We meet quarterly (2 – 3 hours per quarter and an annual AGM in June) and can make accommodation for Directors that need to “attend” via Facetime or Skype rather than in person. Even if you do not have availability for additional activities associated with the Board, and are only able to attend the regular Board meetings, your ideas and opinions at the quarterly Board meetings will be valuable and your participation appreciated. 

 To volunteer or if you would like more information on this volunteer opportunity to make your community the best it can be, please call (403-461-4219) or email Roberta Roesler, President PGCA.

Thank you,
Roberta Roesler

To ALL Residents of Priddis Greens (Still looking for 1 more candidate to join the PGSC Board)

We have been very fortunate in the past to have many of our neighbours commit their time and energy as Directors on our Priddis Greens Services Co-op (PGSC) Board, with some having served multiple terms. This year, the Board had 2 vacancies, each for 3-year terms to be filled at our AGM in April. ALL residents of Priddis Greens (including single family homeowners) are eligible to serve as a Director on the Co-op Board.

With the Annual General Meeting being April 24th, we need 1 more candidate to volunteer to join the Co-op Board. With time running out, I urge each of you seriously consider offering your time and talents as a Director on our Board.

The Priddis Greens Services Co-op is responsible for providing and managing various services to residents, which include but are not limited to potable water, sewage treatment, garbage pickup, lawn irrigation, lawn maintenance and fertilizing, snow removal and dangerous tree removal. The Board would benefit from those of you who have some experience working with financial information. You need not be a Certified Public Accountant, nor a bookkeeper, but simply comfortable reading and understanding balance sheets and profit & loss statements as part of the Board's governance duties in overseeing expenses related to the Co-op's $927,000 annual operating budget.

The commitment is not onerous. The Board normally meets 6 to 7 times throughout the year. The General Manager organizes the meetings and provides Board members with needed information in advance of each of these meetings. 

If you are interested in serving your community in this important role as a Director, please respond to the Co-op's Chairman, Russ Huston.
