THE EDMONTON AURORA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Edmonton Aurora Residents Association (EARA) was incorporated in 2012 under the Alberta Societies Act. The Bylaws of the EARA can be viewed HERE.
If you are a new resident, or you are not receiving regular emails from the EARA regarding important community information, please forward your details to firstname.lastname@example.org and include this form.
EARA residents may access the Architectural Guidelines HERE.
*Failing to inquire about your property’s compliance with the Architectural Guidelines will not negate your responsibility to ensure compliance.
Please email email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns pertaining to any of the items above.
A map of the assets in the Aurora community that the EARA is responsible to maintain is located HERE.
These assets will be maintained by an approved contractor on an annual basis. They primarily consist of the entrance features, fountains and associated utilities services. The EARA will do its best to ensure these assets are maintained, but from time-to-time there may be an area that is overlooked. If you come across one of these assets that is in need of attention, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Edmonton’s role is to maintain and groom the parks, green spaces, playgrounds and pathways within the Aurora community. They are also responsible for addressing residents’ concerns and enquiries regarding those areas. Please contact the City of Edmonton directly for community updates. You can also report any areas of concern by calling 311 or by submitting a request using the Edmonton 311 app. Please visit their website for more information.
Residents are responsible to care for the boulevard, alley and driveway crossing adjacent to their property line. Please visit the City of Edmonton website for further information.
Boulevards & Median Maintenance
A boulevard is the portion of City property between the curb or road’s edge and the adjacent front property line. Boulevards may also border sidewalks, multi-use trails and alleys. Residents are responsible to care for the boulevard, alley and driveway crossing adjacent to their property line. This means, as a homeowner, you are now responsible for the maintenance of the boulevard landscaping in front of your home to the curb, and if you are a corner lot, the flankage boulevard along the side of your property to the curb. Maintenance includes mowing, watering, fertilizing, weed control and replacement, should the grass die. We also want to remind you that during the winter months you are responsible for the snow removal from the sidewalk in front of your home and, if on a corner lot, the flankage sidewalk. We trust that as a responsible homeowner you will maintain the boulevard area with the same pride as your own front yard. We thank you for your cooperation and continued diligence resulting in a beautiful neighborhood.
Maintaining the Boulevard
- Cut grass to a reasonable length on your portion of the boulevard
- Remove fallen leaves and debris from the boulevard beside your property
- Prune trees and shrubs around your yard so they do not hang over the sidewalk or block pedestrians
- Do not attach signs or devices to City trees
- Obtain City approval before building structures or planting trees on any portion of a boulevard
- Call the city of Edmonton to remove, prune, or repair any City tree on the boulevard
Website & Database
The EARA website is administered by Ivrnet. This Calgary based company provides web site management and hosting services for many community associations and property management organizations in the Edmonton & Calgary region.
Ivrnet was chosen over a self-hosted EARA resident for several reasons, including:
- They are an established company which provides competitive services, including the Telepay option used to collect fees
- They provide technical support during regular business hours, as well as after-hours if the matter is urgent
- They provide a continuity of service, which may not be possible if the services were the responsibility of a specific resident who could no longer meet their contractual obligations (such as if they moved or no longer had the time to do it)
EARA residents may join the Horizon Community League. Please see their website for information.
