Basements, Bedrooms and Renovations

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

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.

Garbage

Dumping Issue

Large furniture items being dumped in and beside the garbage garages continues to be a problem with a significant cost to all of us to take care of it.

The Board has decided to bring in a big waste bin every 3 months to help take care of the problem.

If you have something large you want to get rid of and can’t take it to the dump or the Eco-Station, please hang on to it in anticipation that you can put it in the bin within 3 months.

Please do not place it beside the garbage area and make it somebody else’s problem.  Thank you.
