Questions and answers about Expansion
No. The annual HOA fee is an encumbrance attached to your land title by law. The annual fee is a necessary and legal requirement to ensure the operations and maintenance of our community’s shared amenities and services including our direct control sites, and beautification of the community. We will be continuing operations around the community and will be finding creative and fun ways to bring the centre experience into the community throughout the year. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the Board of Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org
The PHCC facility is expanding to meet the growing needs and demands of our diverse community. We want to provide more programs and services that can enhance the quality of life of our members and visitors. The expansion project will allow us to offer more space, more equipment, more amenities, and more opportunities for our community.
The expected timeline is 12 months of construction. The PHCC facility will likely be closed for expansion from October 16, 2023 to December 2024. This is the estimated duration of the construction work, which may be subject to change depending on various factors.

Owning a home with an encumbrance on the property land title makes you a member of Panorama Hills Resident Association. Despite the renovation of the PHCC park and facility, we are still offering multiple services such as maintenance on Direct Control sites and Enhanced Landscape Maintenance to keep Panorama Hills looking good. Therefore, the collection of fees will not stop.
One of our top priorities is to have our members involved in the overall process. We have and will continue to conduct several engagement events to get feedback from members. We are dedicated to getting as much feedback as possible during our targeted engagement phase and beyond. We have been collecting survey information since 2017 from residents and it is that information that acted as a driver to move forward with this project. If you have more questions or concerns about the expansion project or the closure, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com or (403) 226-4386. We are happy to assist you and address your feedback.
