The Cooper’s Crossing Residents’ Association (CCRA) was established in 1999 as a private, non-profit corporation under the Alberta Companies Act. The Association was created by the Cooper’s Crossing Joint Venture to provide maintenance and ownership of certain amenities located in the Cooper’s Crossing Lands and to represent the community’s interests. The Association is governed by Articles of Association and is operated by a board of directors elected by the Cooper’s Crossing residents.
All homeowners in Cooper’s Crossing are required to pay regular fees to the Association to fund its operations and the maintenance of the amenities. The Association’s operations may also be expanded to include other functions that are of common benefit to members.
From 1999 to 2016, the CCRA was managed by Westmark Holdings Ltd., the developer of Cooper’s Crossing. During this period, several community-enhancing initiatives, such as community events, enhanced park maintenance, a community newsletter, and community enhancement projects, were established. The CCRA changed management bodies to Astoria Asset Management Ltd. in 2014 and was then transitioned to a resident-led management in 2016 with the first resident-led Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on May 27, 2017.
In 2018, the CCRA board underwent a strategic planning session and developed a vision and mission for the Association.
