Legal Compliance / Design Guidelines

Wedgewood continues to be a desirable neighbourhood for families due to the commitment of all homeowners who invest in keeping the community looking great! Part of making the community attractive is having residents respect the guidelines in place to keep common areas maintained, and properties aligned to standards. 

Please see below a summary of design guidelines documents, caveats, encumbrances and architectural standards that are comprehensive and in place for our ravine-oriented community.  These guidelines are mandatory for the community, and if you have any question, please contact your lawyer that closed your real estate transaction for explanation of binding.

Design and color compliance-Wood Fence Detail and Paint Requirements, Fence Repair or Replacement

Wood Fences

Our Fences in Wedgewood have been built to a consistent design and color across the entire subdivision, for neighborhood appearance, continuity, and design quality, and adherence to this original design specification is mandatory and outlined in the document link above.  All design guidelines in the neighborhood, non compliance can be met with penalties.  

Residents are responsible for maintaining fences that are on their properties including wood fences that border a common area. While the Homeowners Association will paint the common side of the wood fences; all repair and replacement of fence boards are the resident's responsibility. For complete details select the above Link. 

These fences if they border your property, are your responsibility for repair or replacement, if common area border fences are in disrepair, you will be required to replace them, as they are the responsibility of the homeowner where the fence borders.  Many of these are very old and in need of replacement, in keeping with the guidelines of the Community.  The homeowners bear the cost of the paint, only to maintain the look of the general neighborhood. 

The correct Paint for our neighborhood wood fencing is called “Wedgewood Slate Green” and is available at the Sherwin Williams location 17016-90 Ave (the previous General Paint location). When ordering/buying this paint be sure to state it is the Wedgewood Slate Green formulation as used in the Edmonton Community of Wedgewood Ravine. You should receive a discounted price. 

Brick Fences

Residents who have brick fence or iron rail fence on their property are solely responsible for the repair and maintenance to the standard as defined in the guidelines. Please ensure you have adequate insurance coverage in the event of damage which does occur from time to time.  Please do not use these fences for any sort of support or another purpose that may affect its integrity over time, as repair/replacement is the sole responsibility of the homeowner, to the original specifications. We have witnessed serious degradation of some fences where owners have put dirt and vegetation against these brick fences, this shortens the life of these fences, due to the manner of construction, and in turn, will result in the owner replacing the brick fence in-kind prematurely.  Owners with these fences on their property should also be wary of the costs, and budget appropriately for replacement, and possible insurance if you have one of these fences that may get damaged by others.
