About the KRA
The Kincora Residents Association is a community-run, non-profit organization responsible for maintaining green spaces and landscaping for Kincora. The KRA is governed by residents of Kincora who volunteer their time for the betterment of the community along with Simco Property Management for day to day management.
Our main objective is to maintain all entrance features, green spaces, the gazebo and Kincora tower. We do not however have any oversight of the natural greenspace areas (ravines) or pathways throughout these areas.
The KRA was established by APEX Builders Group to assume ownership and responsibility of entrance features and feature parks within the community. All owners, within the orange outline area as shown in the Boundary Map tab, are members of the KRA. An encumbrance exists on all residential and multi-family parcels within the KRA boundary which outlines the annual payment required (see "Annual Fees") for the purpose of maintaining the entrance features and feature parks.
The KRA is separate from the Kincora Community Association. The Community Association has a number of responsibilities related to enhancing a family-oriented lifestyle in our community. Some of these events include content for the community newsletter, stampede breakfast, winter festival, Easter egg hunt, community cleanup and other social activities throughout the year. The two associations work closely together to ensure that community concerns are managed efficiently and effectively.
The KRA is very proud to contribute funds to help support the KCA events.
The collection of the annual fee is used to maintain the green spaces within Kincora at a level that is superior to the standards that would have been provided for by The City of Calgary through the assessment and collection of property taxes.
The board creates it based off of previous year's budgets and directs its energies towards projects to improve Kincora. Landscaping is by far the largest item of that budget and is tendered publicly for contract. This tender is based on a specifications a previous board had an outside consultant help craft and is reviewed annually by the board's landscape committee.
Yes, we are provided a grant for work that would be done on their normal work schedule. This can be found in the past financials.
Board meetings are pre-scheduled for the first Tuesday of each month, except July and August. Residents of Kincora are able to attend meeting. Please contact the KRA with details of your item so you can be added to the agenda for the upcoming meeting.
