On behalf of Melcor Developments Ltd, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family to BlueSky at Black Mountain and are confident that you will enjoy this unique community for many years!
Melcor is committed to building communities where residents can live, work, play and shop.
Within the community, residents can bike or go for a walk around the community’s connected walking trails, parks, Tennis Courts and much more.
Homeowners quite often have questions about their community. Listed below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding the BlueSky at Black Mountain Equitable Charge.
To ensure the community is maintained to a high standard, Melcor has registered an Equitable Charge on each lot in the community to manage and maintain assets and features in the community for the long-term use, enjoyment and benefit of all BlueSky residents and helps ensure their financial sustainability over time.
Yes. All residents and property owners have their title registered with a caveat for the Annual Equitable Charge. Payment is mandatory with the purchase of a home in BlueSky and applies to each property owner in BlueSky.
The payment is secured by a caveat between $150.00 and $170 (subject to upward adjustment for inflation & GST) is registered on the title to each owner’s lot. The fiscal year runs from January 1st to December 31st of the current year. Fees for 2020 are set at $180+GST
Residents benefit by having certain amenities and assets in their community scheduled for enhanced maintenance of Entry features, parks and boulevards, which will serve to set BlueSky apart from other communities that do not have the ability to maintain open spaces to a higher standard.
BlueSky, including the features and amenities, is managed and administered by Melcor Developments
There are a variety of garbage barrels in the community. The Black Mountain Golf Club or the City of Kelowna are responsible. The difference is specifically due to the fact that we are a developing community and in some cases Melcor still owns the properties until such time as each area is registered. When registration of an area occurs, the City of Kelowna holds a landscape bond for a certain period of time until they feel the project can then be turned over as the City’s responsibility. City owned garbage cans are usually well identified as such, near City trails etc., with dog disposal bags as well. The temporary garbage cans are the responsibility of the Black Mountain Golf Club via the Equitable Charge and an email to Triona can have a situation solved quickly.
The City of Kelowna has put the responsibility on Melcor for parking at the entrance to the walking trails on Stockley St. even though it is a City of Kelowna Right of Way. Please note that we will be placing signage in this area and any boats, trailers, unlicensed vehicles, etc. will be towed at the owner’s expense.
We have visitors from outside the Okanagan as well as families, children, and teenagers from our community and nearby.
Sometimes the vistors are not respectful to our community and as a community, we need to stand together and form a bond to help keep our neighbourhoods safe.
We have installed cameras, paid for security services, and policed our own development but, the people of the community are needed to band together to help the neighbourhood.
The police must be called for all violations. With the engagement of our community we can reduce isues of this nature.
We work with many builders and establish successful relationships to ensure they are operating to the highest standards. Unfortunately in rare instances a builder may not keep their commitment. We will contact the bylaw department and find out if any permits have lapsed as that seemed to help get some of the issues resolved. However, again as a community, it might be helpful if others contacted the City as well.
The lamp posts on the walkway across from the Clubhouse are currently the property of Melcor. Melcor is responsible to repair/replace the vandalized posts.
In the future, when we register the phase 7 portion of our development this area will become park land held by the City of Kelowna.
We mailed trail maps to everyone in the community showing trail lengths, locations, species of animals, descriptions, etc.
The new directional signage that goes with the maps will be installed summer 2020.
The connecting road to our community via Loseth is anticipated to be completed in 2021.
All accesses to this area are blocked off because this is private property and should not be used by any sort of vehicles. We do however; allow people to walk through the area at their own risk.
Weed suppression is underway again in 2020. Our goal is to continue to suppress weeds on properties still owned by Melcor. We began in 2018/2019 and it is working. By maintaining the weeds we are bringing back the natural grasses, shrubs, and environment that belong on the hillside developments. We have already had tremendous success in the past hydro seeded slopes and look forward to next year when the majority of the weeds will be exhausted. This is a long term project that we intend to continue.
