Whitemud Creek is a unique community lifestyle concept in which the developers created a community that would be the envy of every other community in the City of Edmonton. Their plan was to put in amenities that were superior to anything available in any other community and to ensure the community retained its value, Carma Developers put in place a series of architectural guidelines and placed restrictive covenants on all property titles to ensure that the architectural guidelines were adhered to in order to reflect the value of our properties.
An encumbrance was placed on each title requiring homeowners to pay a yearly fee to ensure all community owned assets are maintained and safeguarded. This fee is now $300.00 per year if paid by the due date. For Whitemud Creek Classics properties, the fee is $240.00 per year. The encumbrance allows for a maximum of $50.00 per month.
As per the restrictive covenant:
No changes may be made to the style or colour of the fencing.
No roofs may be replaced with other than approved products (see Approved Roofing Materials). Owners may substitute other roofing material only with the prior written consent of the WCHA Board of Directors.
Failure by a homeowner to comply with the covenant regarding fences or roofing materials will result in legal action by the WCHA to enforce the covenant.
Fees are essential to the financing of operations and services provided by WCHA. The Board of Directors establishes the services and resulting rates to be paid each year which is presented at the Annual General Meeting.
