The Slopes Community first started to develop in 1993. From its beginning it has evolved into a mature community comprising 124 residential sites. Most of the building sites have been developed with homes and landscaping. A few lots are vacant and undeveloped. Home ownership has partially transitioned from original owners to purchasers of existing homes.
Slopes Community Association
The Slopes Community is organized as a Community Association under the Alberta Societies Act cS-14. Under the terms of the Association, the community owns and maintains the roads, water, sewer, shallow utility and overland drainage systems. The community also engages contractors to clear snow from the roads, provide landscaping within community owned land and insure the overland drainage system is maintained and managed.
Community members elect a Board of Directors from members of the community who serve 2 year terms with the responsibility of managing the affairs of the community and its assets. An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in the spring each year for the Board to report to the community, to provide members the opportunity to vote on issues, and to provide a budget for community maintenance and programs.
We encourage members of the community to provide input to the Board and also encourage people to volunteer to accept responsibility to serve on the Board to help insure the interests of the community are protected and maintained.
Some members of the Board are asked to function as a Design Committee to review proposed building and landscaping plans with lot owners, review construction as it proceeds, monitor issues related to site development and administer the damage deposit discussed in this document. The Design Committee reports to the Board and refers questions and issues needing the attention of the Board.
Overland Drainage Covenant
Each home site has a registered overland drainage covenant on title. This covenant requires each owner of a site to allow naturally occurring overland drainage to enter and leave the site through existing drainage systems developed within the community. It also prohibits lot owners from changing drainage patterns on their site to negatively impact adjacent building sites or community drainage systems.
