The New Brighton Residents Association (NBRA) is a not-for-profit organization established under Part 9 of the Companies Act by the builder in 2003, to professionally manage and operate several of New Brighton’s community features. Operated by the NBRA, the New Brighton Club is a year round recreational facility, consisting of a 6500 square foot building. Also on site are; 2 tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, basketball courts, a splash park, playground, and a hockey rink. Members can gain access to these facilities using their issued membership card, and can also sign in guests. The Bell Tower amenity, pond fountains and community entrances are among a few of the other community features maintained by the NBRA. The New Brighton Residents Association, including the operation of New Brighton Club, is administered by a Board of Directors made up of resident representatives
In addition to maintaining community features, the NBRA also employees a fulltime Recreation Coordinator at the New Brighton Club, who is responsible for implementing recreational programs and events, using various facilities and amenities within the park. To meet the needs of all of its members, the NBRA offers a variety of fitness, educational, and creative programs for all ages.
Membership to the New Brighton Residents Association is automatic and mandatory with the purchase of a home in New Brighton. The payment of “Membership Fees”, which is reviewed and established annually by the NBRA Board of Directors, is secured by an Encumbrance (subject to upward adjustment for inflation) registered on the title of each member’s property..
Communities with established Residents Associations have proven to benefit from their establishment, by having certain amenities and assets in their communities that would otherwise be difficult to implement. Research has also proven that these communities have greater community spirit and neighbour interaction through the program and special event offerings provided by their Resident Associations.
