Thanks from Lori, to all who participated in the courtyard market yesterday. Hope to see more out next time. The social was fun, as always. Special thanks to Yassin for getting the BBQ. Hope you enjoy the rest of summer and stay tuned for Fall/Winter events. We look forward to seeing you there.
#AmazingOliver is holding weekly picnics on in the various parks around our neighbourhood every Thursdays! Come meet your neighbours, renew your OCL membership, toss a frisbee, bring a snack, or have a nap– anything goes at a picnic! We’ll have lemonade for you & your friends. First one is this Thursday, August 20 at Paul Kane Park.
A friendly reminder for the safety of all. Please ensure any guests or residents who smoke in your suite or balcony are aware that containers with potting soil are NOT suitable for cigarette disposal.
Advice from the fire department:
- Use non-combustible ashtrays.
- Make sure butts are wet before putting them in garbage cans.
- Never extinguish or leave cigarette butts in potting soil.
Saturday, August 25, the Board is inviting everyone to come on down to the courtyard.
Afternoon yard sale: for residents, owners, family & friends. NOT open to the public. Please contact Lori in Unit 5 if you want to set up a sale table for household goods or small business items.
Potluck BBQ starting at 5pm: Bring your own beverage and something to throw on the grill plus an appie, salad or dessert to share. Yes, we are bringing in a BBQ for the occasion!
Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy the new gazebo and our lovely courtyard. No, the gazebo isn’t off-centre, just the angle of my photo.
The Alberta government has published an important survey with a deadline for response of July 31. You don’t have to answer every question, or finish the survey in one sitting. There is also space to write comments and suggest alternatives and solutions.
The results of this survey will affect the new condominium regulations and all condo owners. Although many changes are welcome and important, some have the potential to inflict unrealistic expectations and heavy administration costs on condominium corporations. This is not light summer reading but it is important.
The Canadian Condominium Institute Northern Alberta Chapter recently held an information session and has provided the slides with commentary and concerns. Please read, consider and respond to the survey before July 31.
Stage 2- CCI Proposed Regulations Info Session- July 12 2018
If you feel you don’t have enough time to consider these changes and their consequences, please at least let Service Alberta know that by your comments in the survey. You could also contact our MLA, David Shepherd.
There are many questions about these regulations. Here are a few to consider:
- Do these regulation changes support good condominium governance?
- Are there things that need to be spelled out more clearly? Added? Deleted?
- Are both owners and boards held accountable by these regulations?
- What documents do we really need sent to every owner before an AGM or Special meeting and in what format, paper or electronic?
- What is the cost of preparing, sending and storing documents?
Come on down to the courtyard tomorrow evening, July 13, between 5 & 9 pm. Meet your neighbours. Celebrate summer!
Bring, a snack to share, your favourite beverage and a chair.
Unit 4 will have a dog visitor this weekend. This dog has visited before without incident. As usual please contact Ted if there are any noise or other concerns. All pet visits are regulated by the bylaws and Pet Policy.
ALL VEHICLES, INCLUDING MOTORCYCLES, SCOOTERS, TRICYCLES, ETC. NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE PARKADE BY 7:30 A.M. ON MONDAY, JULY 9, 2018.
Anything occupying floor space must be removed.
Bicycles in the wall racks may remain.
Vehicles can be put back in the parkade once the cleaning is complete.
If you will be away on this date, please arrange to have your vehicle removed.
Reminder about parkade storage: the designated 3 wheeled bike area is for bikes and bike trailers only, as space permits. No storage in parking stalls except in a Board approved storage unit.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS MATTER
Many thanks to the good neighbour who returned the bookcase. Our Chanticleer book swap corner is now available for use by all. Please confine donations to the space available in the bookcase and only leave books in good condition.
Also for those who are having difficulty figuring out what goes where in the mail room, here is a handy Users’ Guide to the Chanticleer Mail Room. Your co-operation in keeping this room clean and tidy reduces costs and makes it nicer for all.
