Priddis Greens Services Co-op
ABOUT US 

The Services Co-op was taken over from the original developer (Priddis Creek Developments) in 1991 and has been governed since that time by a Board of Directors comprised of six residents elected at the Annual General Meeting in April of each year, plus the General Manager of the Priddis Greens Golf & Country Club.  

The purpose of the Services Co-op is to provide the following services to the community:
 - Potable water supply and sewage treatment
 - Garbage pick-up
 - Snow removal
 - Grass maintenance
 - Summer irrigation (non-potable water)

The above services are provided to four basic user groups:
 - The condo residents (26 condo corporations) - all of the above services
-  The 12 single lot owners - potable water and garbage pick-up
 - The Priddis Greens Golf Club - receives potable water and sewage treatment
 - Hawk's Landing Services Co-op - receives potable water.  In addition, effective Dec 1, 2010, the Priddis Greens Services Co-op entered into a contract with Hawk's Landing Services Co-op to operate their potable water distribution system and their waste water treatment plant.  This service is being provided by our Services Co-op for a monthly fee

RE: IRRIGATION SYSTEM MODIFICATIONS

Some residents are finding that turning the valves on our manual lawn irrigation system has become too much of a hassle. As a result a few condo corps have changed or are in the process of changing their current manual valve system to an automatic timer controlled system. 

For those who have made or are contemplating making the change, they should be aware that:
 > The CO-OP is responsible for the main irrigation line up to and including each condo corp/lot owner's main turn on/off valve .
 > The CO-OP is also responsible for the main irrigation line leading from each condo corp/lot owner's main turn on/off valve back to the Golf Club's pressure regulating valves for the home irrigation system.
 > The Condominium Corp/Lot Owner is responsible for the replacement/maintenance/repair of each condo corp/lot owner's irrigation network of control valves, irrigation system lines, sprinkler heads and Quick Connectors.
 > When requested, and if the work is within the capabilities of CO-OP employees the CO-OP will do the repairs and maintenance, at an hourly rate charged to the resident or condo corporation to the current valve and irrigation systems only.
 > Repairs and maintenance to any part of newly installed automated systems cannot be done by the CO-OP due to product warranties and not having a supply of parts other than those needed for the current manual valve system.

Thank you for your understanding.
Our Household Garbage pickup day is MONDAY.

Please place your garbage out by 7:30 AM for pickup on MONDAY each week.

The Range Recycling pickup day remains as WEDNESDAY. We are working with them on possible options, however this may take more time as their whole schedule was built around Wednesday being the pickup day for Priddis Greens. To change their schedule to Monday will mean changing the day for all other customers.

SNOW REMOVAL RESPONSIBILITIES 

The Co-op has received many requests for information on snow clearing responsibilities.

MD of Foothills: (provided by the Deputy Director of Operations, Public Works)
The larger highway plow trucks, with side blades look after all the major roads in the MD that have higher traffic volumes and speed limits. These roads will always take priority over 'internal subdivision' roads. The liability factor, and risk of serious injury accidents, or worse, is far greater than on low traffic volume roads with lower speed limits.

For Priddis Greens one of the MD's large highway plows looks after Priddis Greens Dr. from Hwy 22 up to the Golf Clubhouse and a smaller 1-ton truck with plow will clear the 'internal' roads. (Sunrise Way & Sunset Way) Both of these trucks cover a vast area, so the roads in the Hamlet of Priddis Greens are just a fraction of what these trucks are responsible for.

When there is a 'snow event' like the one before Christmas it will take the MD's fleet of 21 pieces of equipment (9 plow trucks, 10 graders, 2 small 1-ton trucks) a minimum, of 72 hours to clear all roads (approximately 4,400 lane kilometers).
When we receive back-to-back snow events before the first one is cleared, they basically have to start all over again.

With major snowfalls, the staff is instructed to make a quick pass in and out of all their dedicated roads to ensure all residents receive the same level of service and to accommodate emergency vehicles if required, then they return later to clear snow properly. Occasionally, and when time permits, the larger highway plow will use the side blade to push back snow further into ditches to widen all roadways to make room for the future snowfalls.

The MD is also responsible for cleaning the Walking Path at Priddis Greens usually within 48 hours of a snow event, with equipment used for other pathways and parking lots that they are responsible for throughout the MD.

RCBS Cats Inc.: The Co-op's contract provides for 30 'callouts' during the season (Nov 15-Apr 15). Snow clearing on Christmas Day or New Years Day count as 2 callouts. They clear the driveways and sidewalks for the 26 Condo Corps, the service roadway to the Raven #7 Wastewater Treatment Plant and the mailbox areas at Sunrise and Sunset Ways. They try to alternate the 'start' of their snow clearing between these subdivisions when they are called out. Single family homeowners clear their own driveways and sidewalks or arrange for a separate contractor to do that work.

Golf Club Turf Care Department: Clears snow from the Turf Care compound, clubhouse parking lot and around the clubhouse and the access road to the Co-op's #1 Lift Station off of Sunset Way.

Hopefully this information provides residents with a better understanding of the snow clearing process.
