communicate area and city issues to the residents;
represent the community to the outside world;

The Tuscany Community Association, formed in April of 2000, is a volunteer-driven body committed to addressing community issues, planning community events and recreation activities, and providing effective representation in civic matters. Membership in the Tuscany Community Association is voluntary and costs $25 per year. A single membership covers a household for participation in TCA-sponsored activities, and entitles one vote at the AGM.
How is the Tuscany Community Association related to the Tuscany Club/Tuscany Residents Association?
Our Community Association receives questions from many residents who want to learn more about the relationship between our Community Association and the Tuscany Residents Association/Tuscany Club. Although we often work together, these are actually different groups with independent purposes. Here is some information to help illustrate how these two Associations function:
– A community association is an organization formed by the residents of an area:
to manage and direct its social and recreational activities
TCA plans, develops and maintains some community programs such as Tuscany Soccer, Community Bookswap, Tuscany Sun, Amazing Chase and Race, etc.
to represent the community in civic matters (planning and development)
to plan, develop and maintain community facilities and amenities
not applicable at this time
membership is voluntary
all residents within the entire community of Tuscany are welcome to become members
– A resident’s/homeowner’s association is a compulsory organization created by a land developer:
to manage and maintain the “marketing” amenities (entrance signage, ornamental parks and ponds, boulevard landscaping and building) of a development that the City will not accept responsibility to maintain
to manage and maintain amenities such as lakes and golf courses
The Tuscany Club is run solely by the RA
membership is compulsoryand the requirement to pay an annual fee is collected by the association through a caveat on title
not all residents in Tuscany fall within the RA’s boundaries and so not all residents pay an annual fee and so, therefore, not all residents are members of the Tuscany Club

We know our community associations play an important role in both the physical and mental well-being of Albertans. We need your help to reduce the spread of COVID-19 so our parks can stay open, safe and accessible.
Continue to practice physical distancing.
Don’t visit if you’re sick or were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Bring a cloth mask and wear it when you’re near other people.
Visit early in the day so you can head somewhere else if a parking lot is full and do not park on the shoulder of roads.
Please bring your own hand sanitizer.
Leave no trace; pack out what you pack in. This will keep our parks clean and reduce the potential for human-wildlife encounters.
Follow the advice of public health experts to protect yourself and others during this pandemic.
Be extra cautious and stay within your limits, knowledge, skill and physical ability. Now is not the time to try new activities or head into unfamiliar areas. Continue to avoid high-risk backcountry activities, regardless of your experience level.
