Our next Big Bin Day will be on Saturday, May 27, 2022 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Henderson Park.
The AGM Meeting will be on WEDNESDAY JUNE 21, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.
Location: The Ridge Community League Building - 2111 Haddow Drive NW
All Homeowners have been invited to join the new website. We have new features that are accessible only to homeowners in Eagle Ridge - but you must sign up! Information (including bylaws and architectural guidelines is easily accessed, as well as links to community sites (EPS, ETS, City of Edmonton). You also have the opportunity to advertise for a service -or offer a service - in the community (i.e. lawn mowing) or advertise a garage sale through Bulletin Board!
SUMP PUMPS: Sump pumps MUST drain onto your own property. The City of Edmonton Bylaw 16200. Water CANNOT run onto sidewalks, walkways or other common areas. This creates slippery surfaces (water, mud, ice) and homeowners can and will be fined. **Sump pumps should not be attached to eavestrough downspouts. Homeowners are liable for injuries incurred on slippery sidewalks if their sump pump drains onto it.
RENOVATION GUIDELINES: There are specific roofing materials, exterior finishes, etc. that abide by the guidelines as outlined in the Architectural Guidelines and Bylaws of the Association (Sections 3.0 and 4.0). Please be aware of these. If you have questions or are planning an exterior redesign or product change that is not clearly identified in the guidelines, please contact the Board. Failure to comply may result in the homeowner being required to remove the product and redo it according to the bylaws. It is the responsibility of the Homeowner to know what product/design is permitted. Many renovation and home-building companies need to comply with the guidelines of ERHA.
If you plan to have a dumpster, storage container, etc. on your driveway, please notify the board (erha-web.com) of the planned duration. They cannot be left indefinitely.
Construction debris, unwanted items, garbage,
etc. cannot be left on the driveway or in vehicles on the driveway for any extended period.
Consider your neighbours - and the aesthetics of the neighbourhood - as you undertake renovations. Garbage and debris should be regularly removed.
FENCE: In order to extend the life of the fence, it should be stained every 4-6 years. The following stain colours are the ONLY accepted ones for Eagle Ridge:
Boards -- Cascade Pewter: Deep Base 06801 - B3y - C1y - F8 /per 01 gallon
Posts & Beams -- Cascade Ebony: Clear Base 06804 - B13y /per 01 gallon
Homeowners who share fence backing onto Rabbit Hill Road or Riverbend Road are responsible for maintaining the interior of the perimeter fence. The ERHA has a plan in place for staining and repairs on a rotational basis. If boards need to be replaced, and the homeowner has not maintained the interior of the fence, the homeowner will be responsible for a portion of the costs incurred.
The ERHA holds an easement on subdivided lots for the perimeter fence. The easement is registered at the Land Titles Office. Therefore, no alterations can be made to the fence. The ERHA has a duty to maintain and protect this asset of the Association.
HOMEOWNERS must notify the Board if they intend to remove the perimeter fence for any reason. If approved, the fence must be reinstalled in the condition in which it was found. The Homeowner will be responsible for any repairs.
SIGNAGE: No signage - including election, real estate, business, etc. - is permitted on the perimeter fence.
ROOFING: Refer to Architectural Guidelines
3.1 on the website for further information.
APPROVED ROOFING MATERIALS:
Untreated cedar shakes, cement tile, certain stone-coated steel products and fabricated rubber products as indicated below:
No asphalt products are permitted. If you are interested in a product or colour not listed, please contact the Board prior to installation for approval.

Recreation Equipment and Commercial Vehicle Parking:
Recreation vehicles and commercial vehicles in excess of 3/4 ton capacity shall not be stored on any property for more than 48 hours unless in a garage. For more details see Appendix "A" of Bylaws: Restrictive Covenants, 2.3.5.
“2.3.5 No recreational vehicles or trailers shall be parked or kept on any Subdivided Lot (unless inside a garage) for more than forty-eight (48) hours, without the prior written approval of the Approving Authority.”
GARBAGE: All homeowners in Eagle Ridge have received the roll-out bins. Please remember that lids must be fully closed for pickup. This also prevents birds from pulling garbage out as well! They should be stored out of sight of the roadway (garage or behind the fence). WasteWise app is a great resource!
TREES: It has been noted that many trees in the area are requiring pruning. Damage incurred by fallen branches and/or trees on neighbouring fences and homes is the responsibility of the offending homeowner! Branches leaning on fences (including perimeter fences) are the responsibility of the homeowner. They must be cleared. There are many reputable arborists in the Edmonton area.
BLACK KNOT FUNGUS: This fungus is noted on many trees in the area. It will infect neighbouring trees if left untreated. Extensive pruning in the early spring or in the fall will help prevent the spread and save trees. The City of Edmonton cleared many branches in the late spring in Henderson Park. Thank you to neighbours who have dealt with it in their yards. If you have a black knot on trees in your yard, please have the offending branches removed so that it does not continue to spread.
Consult a reputable arborist for advice and treatment or removal.
EAGLE RIDGE TOWER - the original masonry company was contacted to assess the tower and make repairs due to leaking in the foundation. This work was carried out in May and sealant and flashing have been applied. There were some brick fence posts that also required attention, and Bombini Brothers have made those repairs.
GRAFFITI on fence posts were dealt with by ERHA Board and the City of Edmonton Clean Up program. Please remember to report any property damage. The graffiti that remains on the Epcor and utility boxes is to be attended to by the companies that own that property.
BIG BIN DAY - May 29, 2023, 10 am - 2 pm at Henderson Park. Homeowners who are in good standing with the HOA in Eagle Ridge and River Ridge communities are invited to use the Big Bin Day as an opportunity to clear out unwanted household items that cannot be set out for regular garbage pick up. Yard waste is permitted (reminder that Seasonal Yard Waste pick up is June 5, 2023). NO electronics, TV’s, oils, paints or chemicals. Large metal objects should go to the Eco Center for recycling.
The shredder will also be available on-site.
NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH is coming to Eagle Ridge! An information table will be set up at Big Bin Day. If you are interested in becoming involved, be sure to check in at the table or contact Nancy - Community Ambassador via email@example.com
COYOTES: In the last couple of years, we have seen increasing numbers of coyotes on neighbourhood walkways, in Henderson Park, and along Heffernan Drive. The mating
season and the arrival of litter are during the spring months.
Small animals (cats, dogs) can become prey. Coyotes can jump yard fences!
DO NOT FEED wild animals. If you witness anyone leaving food out for any wild animals, please contact Alberta Fish and Wildlife.
