Showcase - Vernon View
Vernon View Condominiums, a 36 unit condominium corporation in Huntsville is a very charming, quaint example of the typical condominiums in Muskoka. The site was developed in 2006 by a local builder, Goodfellow Construction Inc, and being the 5th of their condo projects in Muskoka, you can detect the pride that this developer puts into their work.
Although it is a small building, there are still the typical managerial requirements such as administration of the Landscaping, Snow Removal, HVAC, Elevator and Fire Protection Contracts along with the Reserve Fund Study updates and all the day to day operational requirements of multi-residential complex. As with other condominium corporations which have a smaller number of units, the Board of Directors are much more involved in the day to day operation of the property. With a part time superintendent, Managements’ presence is also required more often as the Board is relying on Management to educate and guide them.
The CCI Directors' Courses have been imperative in assisting the board to understand their roles and responsibilities as well as their expectations of their management company. They are relentlessly searching for ways to improve the lifestyle of the residents, maintain the beauty of the property and minimize the financial burden while maintaining the highest standards possible.
Therefore, when the new Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act came into place in 2012, the Board had taken the initiative to investigate the options and commence the process of upgrading the building. Although the upgrade was not required immediately, the Board felt that installing handicap operators, with a combination of a keyless Access System, would not only enhance the lifestyle of the residents but it would raise the security level as well and increase the value of their investment.
