the community is located in Okotoks, AB, which is it's own community outside of Calgary, as opposed to being right in Calgary.

How pretty is this community? Does it have a home owner's association? Are the gardens organic? Are there more details about this community? Are there other similar communities?

This is a regular subdivision in a new development. There is a homeowner's group in the larger subdivision, but not on the two streets that are the solar community. That said, the sense of community you will find there is unsurpassed. Everyone knows each other(at least on the street that is finished) and there is lots of cialis shop talk about how we can further our attempts at 'green living'. Not everyone is there for the solar aspect, so there are people there of varying degrees of commitment towards the environment. Which I think is awesome. It means that the technology is assessible to a wider aray of individuals. Many of the homes plan to xeriscape including us(although the how much does cialis cost developer included sod with each house). Many of the owners included further upgrades such as dual flush toilets. Ours is a Mansbridge. I have a blog regarding my own families attempts to 'take it to next level'... if you are interested. Okotoks is a very forward thinking small town as they are looking ahead to buy viagra in england a limited water supply. Strange for Southern Alberta, I know, but not all of us are rednecks here :)
