Spring and Summer Maintenance Program

Spring & Summer Maintenance Program

While maintenance takes place all year, here are some of the specifics for the sites we care for and what happens during the warmer months.

Water Conservation Plan for 2024

The Panorama Hills RA is taking a proactive approach to help protect the water that we all depend on as we anticipate that City of Calgary water restrictions will continue to go in effect if we do not receive a substantial amount of rain. Therefore:

  1. We will reduce grass watering efforts and will follow City restrictions
  2. We will use drought resistant grass seed with all repairs
  3. Although we have ordered flowers last fall, we are looking at drought-tolerant plants that can be added this year and in the future.
  4. We will invest in rain barrels to capture as much rain as possible.

  •  All signs posted in the community must abide by the bylaws set forth by the City of Calgary. This includes temporary, election and other advertising. Any signs posted on the PHRA property, including the 38 DC sites, must be approved by the PHRA ahead of time.
  • All fences running adjacent to a property are the responsibility of the homeowner. The PHRA does not provide  any maintenance on these item. However, information on the materials and paint colors  associated with the fence caveat, listed on the affected homeowners. The chain link fences, along the pathways and greenspaces are also under the care of the homeowner and must be maintained in a similar way.
