This is where you should answer the most common questions Auburn Bay residents might have.
What’s is the difference between a Residents Association (RA) and Community Association (CA)?
The RA is a Not for Profit business that was set up by the developer to operate and maintain Auburn House and the Lake in addition to specific community corners. The CA is a group of volunteers that represent the community of Auburn Bay with all levels of Government.
We have (2) groups with the community due to different mandates: the RA's priorities are Auburn House and the Lake, the CA's priorities are the rest of the community: schools, traffic issues, events open to everyone, cell phone towers ...
Please see the RA page for a complete comparison of our groups.
Does the CA have it's own building?
At this time the CA is working towards building on the designated CA site at 234 Auburn Bay Ave, but we need to raise the funds to build and maintain the property. We currently are working on getting storage on the site for equipment that we need for community events such as the Stampede Breakfast and Parade of Lights / Winter Festival.
Why do we have to pay for a CA membership ($25 / year)?
In order for the CA to operate we have various expenses that we need to pay each year and our membership fee is our main source of income, such as liability insurance, meeting space rentals, and event expenses to name a few.
All CA membership holders are able to use their card to receive discounts at various local businesses. Please see the Membership Privileges Program (MPP) on our Membership page on our website or monthly "Down by the Bay" newsletter.
