Privacy Fences

Published by:

Privacy Fence, After

Hello all,
We have begun an initiative at various owners request to install optional privacy fences.
Owners can purchase a privacy fence for introductory price of $1250+GST. Orders and payment in full must be done by July 25th at Noon for this years fence installation.
The privacy fence consists of a gate that can be operated on either side.
For lawn care and fire evacuation purposes the gate does not lock.
The fence can be installed in a single day.
If you are interested in purchasing a privacy fence we will be installing the fences in batch during August.

If you care to take a look at the new privacy fences we have our first install in the yard of Unit 52.

For more details contact Tamara at Bridgegate

Lot Grading Update

Published by:

As everyone knows our condo complex has been undergoing grading for the last few years. Following contractual disputes last year we terminated the services of Do All Landscaping.
We are still working on getting quotes for the work this year.

What we have left to do:

  • Swale behind units 32-37 requires minor revision to slope
  • Downspouts on units 1-6 need to be rerouted to the swale behind units.
  • Sod, and rocks are not done behind units 18-19 and 24-25
  • Grading/Swale behind units 19-28 is not done and requires sod and rocks
  • Downspouts should be installed on all down pipes so that all the water drains away from the foundation
  • Grading and grass beside driveways of unit 58,99,121,127 need to be repaired
  • Settled area beside Unit 41(SE corner), Unit 42 (NW corner), Unit 69 (NE corner), Unit 140(east wall), Unit 149 (west wall), Unit 175 (east wall), Unit 158(west wall) need to be repaired

Basements, Bedrooms and Renovations

Published by:

Renovations

We have had a few inquiries about basement bedrooms and basement renovations.
To be clear there are a few hurtles to get over when renovating a basement.

First owners should put together a detailed plan with proposed electrical, sewage and water hookups listed.
The plan should have measured wall lengths and detail any windows.
The renovation plan must follow our Unit Renovation Policy. And be submitted in writing for board approval.

Basement renovations require permitting and inspection by a City of Edmonton.
An outline of all the City requirements for basements can be found on their basement permitting page..

For basement bedrooms a basement window is required to permit safe exit from the building in the event of a fire.

Unfortunately none of the units in the Stonebridge complex are capable of meeting this regulation. As such basement bedrooms cannot be installed in the complex.
Options for the basement include building a rec room, gym or a home theater. Bathrooms may be installed drainage permitting.

Dumping Issue

Hello Everyone we are running the Big Bins again.
This time we have moved the bin to the visitor parking area by Garage 2. This is by units 20-24 on the east side of the complex.
We are running this one a little longer than usual do to demand. We have already emptied the bin once and we will keep the bin around until it is full again.

Doorbells!

doorbell

Hello everyone,
Hear that sound?
That’s your doorbell.
Or lack there of….
Just a reminder to owners that door bells are part of your property and responsibilities.
Please replace broken doorbells with similar doorbells to match the rest of the units.

Our site manager is willing to replace door bells, for a small fee if you are unable or unwilling.

Issues with Dumping

Published by:

Dumping Issue

Hello Everyone, please note that there is no dumping in the complex.
Do not leave large furniture or items beside the garages as it is an additional charge to have any items picked up.
Anyone caught dumping will be charged to have the materials removed.
Also note that the City of Edmonton does not remove large items placed in the dumpsters such as TVs and Pallets.
Please dispose of large items during big bin events or at your local Eco Station.
