Resident Member Obligations
The OAH was established to protect the value statement of the Harmony community features and facilities and has a vested interest in ensuring a high level of maintenance and future upkeep of these amenities. These features and facilities are not funded by municipal taxes, and therefore a monthly fee payable by all property owners in Harmony is required. Each member contributes to the maintenance and care of the community and its amenities. To ensure every Harmony resident is aware of the OAH and its purpose, the Member Acknowledgement Form should be completed at the time of purchase with assistance from your builder. If you missed seeing this form, please go to the Important Documents menu. If you have any questions about this form, please call as at the OAH office at 403-212-1617.
OAH Ownership & Responsibility Map
Maintenance of the roads, parks and pathways and the landscaping in and around these areas falls to several parties. For a look at the areas of responsibility for stage 1 of Harmony, please view the map at Important Documents menuhttps://harmonyowners.com/important-documents/
Green Web Pathway Maintenance
Please read below for information on the maintenance of open spaces and pathways within the community:
The green spaces and wetland areas in the community were designed to be part of a naturalized green web system. This means that the grasses in these locations are intended to be left natural, and not regularly maintained. During initial construction, Harmony Developments was maintaining these areas while the grass was new and was getting established. However, homeowners should not expect that these areas will be maintained by HDI in future. A strip of grass along each side of the pathways will remain mowed but the larger “field” areas will not.
Moving forward, after the OAH takes over landscape maintenance, there may be an opportunity for the OAH to maintain some of these areas, particularly outside of rear fences/gates. However, there is a cost associated with this. Communication on this topic will be shared with homeowners after HDI has completed the deficiency site walk with the OAH. OAH Management has requested that a landscape maintenance map be produced, in order to highlight the areas of maintenance by the OAH. Once that map is complete we will share it with homeowners on the website.
