A few words from Derek & Vanessa
Spring is finally here! Wow, what a cold snap we just came through. The warm weather brings out walkers and children playing so please remember that the speed limit is 30km through-out the park.
We would like to extend a very warm welcome to those who have moved into the park this past winter. We truly hope you are enjoying living here in the meadows.
Our Facebook page and website are getting more and more traffic to it which is awesome. We love connecting with everyone. When searching for us on Facebook make sure you look for our duck logo. Once again if your phone number has changed please notify the office.
We will be having the streets swept soon. If you see the sweeper we ask that you please remove your vehicle from the street. We will keep you posted as the day draws closer.
We should be welcoming some new little additions to the park soon…yes Geese!! Please don’t feed or disturb them in any way.
R.V. season will be upon us soon so please review the rules of owning an R.V., trailer or boat located in your Tenancy Agreement. R.V.’s, trailers (utility or travel) and boats can only be in your yard for loading or unloading purposes only. (max. 24 hours)
Insurance: Thank you to the majority of you who brought in your proof of insurance. I have been keeping track of renewal dates and will send you a reminder at the beginning of your renewal month as we require this
The Town of Stony Plain will be holding its annual Treasure Hunt and Large Item Pick-up again this year. The Treasure Hunt will take place the weekend of May 3-5th. The Large Item Pick-up will follow the week after on May 6-10th. Check out the Reporter or the Town web-site at stonyplain.com for more information. This is a great opportunity to get rid of “stuff” laying around that you no longer need. However, if your stuff is not out to the curb for the Large Item Pick-up by the 6th of May the Town will not come back and pick it up. Restrictions apply.
Our Community Garage Sale is back by popular demand! The sale will take place on Saturday, May 25th, 2019. If you would like to have your name added to the list please call the office. I do believe this is our third annual!

Beautiful Yard Competition: Every year we hold a “Beautiful Yard Competition”. In August we will put a team of judge
We also look for yard neatness, flowers, etc. we also choose one home that has shown big improvements. The winners will receive a gift certificate. With so many beautiful yards in the
Dog poop! Clean it up!! I don’t know how else to say it. Keep your yards clear of dog feces as well. Dogs need to be chipped, tattooed or have dog tags on. Please provide the office with a picture of your dog so that in the event the dog gets out the office will have a reference from which to start to get the dog home safely. You can email it to me as well.
Coyote Update: We have had coyotes in and around the park recently. The truth is they get to live here as well as us. I contacted Fish & Wildlife recently. They gave me some great information how to deal with an encounter. A Coyote Hotline has been set up at 780-644-5744. There is a lot of good information available to you from that number. Fish & Wildlife will not “trap” a coyote. The only way they get involved is if the coyote is aggressive or injured. If this is the case you need to call 1-800-642-3800. This number is available 24/7. F&W did tell me that it has been over 20 years since there has been an attack on a human. Common sense must prevail; dogs on leashes, not leaving garbage out etc. Check out the hotline for more information.
Taxes: Regarding property taxes, you have until April 24th to dispute and get reassessed. If you think you have been unfairly assessed please call the Town at 780-963-2151 for more information.
If anyone has a complaint or concern please call the office to discuss or drop me a signed note into our MM mailbox. If the letter is not signed we cannot deal with it properly.
Odds and Ends
When selling your home please advise your Realtor that signs ARE NOT to be put in the ground. Window signs or sandwich boards are permitted. Also, if you are selling privately please be aware that any future Tenant must meet with Park Approval. Have them come in and speak with us.
Our office continues to get a lot of traffic through it and we could not be more pleased with the comments we receive about our park. So, thank you!! We feel so fortunate to have a park filled with such special people.
Thought to Ponder: Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush!
