WELCOME TO THE EDMONTON AURORA RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION (EARA)
The Edmonton Aurora Residents Association would like to welcome you to the community. We are excited to see the community continue to develop and are pleased that so many people have chosen to make Aurora their place to call home. We look forward to sharing this great community with you.
Notice - Summer Update
We still have some people contacting Melcor, please ensure all requests / inquiries are sent to email@example.com.
Please note: we do not have a physical office with a phone number, so email is the only form of communication that we use at this time.
The 2020 Fee Notices have been sent out and are now due. If you have not received your notice, please contact us at the above email address. If you are a new resident to the area, please fill out the form under the “Resident Info” section and contact us so we will be able to create your profile to process your payments.
For a list of assets that the EARA is responsible for, please see the map link further down this page.
Generally speaking the City of Edmonton is responsible for maintaining all green spaces in the area, however we have contracted an outside company to perform extra grass cutting and weed management on an as needed basis. The exception is the pond area since the City of Edmonton has declared that a naturalized area, so no extra maintenance is done. All complaints of green spaces should be directed to the City of Edmonton.
The pond lights and fountains are fully operational, and are on a timer system. If you notice that they are not working please contact us at the above noted email address.
The entrance features have not had any issues this year, but if you notice anything please let us know.
The summer event has been cancelled due to Covid 19.
The Annual General Meeting is currently scheduled for late September, though that may change depending on restrictions due to Covid 19. More information will be available when the details have been finalized.
Finally, please keep in mind that the entire EARA is run by four volunteers who do not receive any compensation for their time and efforts. Some of the duties are; arranging the distribution / collection / processing of fees with various companies, managing the accounting system, arranging financial audits, contracting companies to maintain the green spaces / fountains / lights as needed, contracting companies to repair other assets (such as fences) as needed, organizing functions for the area, updating the website, monitoring and responding to emails from the “info” account, liaising with our contracted law office regarding the Alberta Societies Act / Restrictive Covenants / Encumbrances / Architectural Guidelines, maintaining the Architectural Committee, and organizing and attending meetings throughout the year. For a volunteer position this is a heavy workload and there may be a delay in responding to specific inquires. We ask that residents reference the website and documents associated to your land title as much as possible.
– The EARA Board of Directors
EARA Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide improved value to the Edmonton Aurora residents and owners through the development, enhancement and maintenance of the Edmonton Aurora area amenities.
EARA Vision Statement
Our vision is to create a community environment that has a consistently high aesthetic appeal throughout; to enhance the walkways, ponds and common spaces; to establish and maintain close integrated communication with our stakeholders; and to ensure that the Edmonton Aurora community remains a preferred choice for current owners and potential buyers.
The EARA fee is an encumbrance that is placed onto all registered land titles within Aurora. The fees are to be administered by the EARA Board of Directors to pay for costs associated with the development, enhancement and maintenance of our common area neighbourhood.
Fees for all registered titles within the Edmonton Aurora area are $100.00 per household.
We will be waiving the processing fee for online / telephone payments, but there will be a $25 processing fee for cheques.
(updated) 2020 Fees: Resident Fees for 2020 will be $100 with a due date of July 1st. Interest for overdue accounts will begin on August 1st.
If you have any questions in regards to these fees or are interested in more information about the EARA, please utilize the “Contact” section on this website.
New Owner Registration*
If you are a new owner in the Edmonton Aurora community and need to register with the EARA, or are a current owner looking to update their information, please complete the form available under the “Resident Info” section and email it to the address under the “Contact” section. This will ensure you will receive all applicable invoicing and information pertaining to the EARA.
*Note: Failing to register will not negate your responsibility to pay the annual fees for your home, any applicable late fees, or legal expenses that may be incurred by your account.
Architectural Guideline Compliance*
Homeowners may access the Architectural Guidelines under the “Resident Info” section.
*Note: Failing to inquire about your house’s compliance with the Architectural Guidelines will not negate your responsibility to ensure compliance. “Landscaping Deposits” are held by your builder and not the EARA.
Edmonton Aurora Fountains
Should you notice an issue with any of the fountains, please use the email in the “Contact” section to notify us.
