When the community of Copperwood was first established, an encumbrance was registered against each lot to allow for the establishment of a neighbourhood homeowners association. The Copperwood Homeowners Association (CHOA) is comprised of all registered owners within the Copperwood area registered under that encumbrance. The fees collected each year allow for beautification enhancements to take place throughout our neighbourhood, complementing the work the City of Edmonton is already doing.
The encumbrance allows the Board of Directors of the CHOA to collect a fee from the residents. The CHOA Board of Directors sets the amount and use of those fees; the fee are currently $185/yr.
Invoices were sent out in February for payment by no later than May 31st.
The fees cover the period of June 1 through May 31 of the given year.
Collecting money for a service is an age old problem. There will always be those people that will simply not pay. There are others that don’t understand the value of what they are being asked to pay for. Some don’t care, etc.
Everyone consciously is interested in only one thing and that is... What’s in it for me?
You have a handful of committed people spending many hours, collectively and without compensation, to bring about thousands of dollars worth of positive effects annually that make your community a more pleasant place to live and your property more valuable. This is one of the best deals you will ever get!
When you don’t pay your fee there is less money to use to improve the area. As well, money that is wasted in collection costs could be put to better use, both by the association and by yourself. Volunteers could be spending more time on making neighbourhood improvements rather than chasing you for your Fee. By not paying your fee, you are asking other Homeowners to pay for the benefit you receive. How would you feel if you were asked to pay someone else’s bill?
