About BHOA

What Is BHOA?

The Brookview Community Association Ltd. (BHOA) is an incorporated non-profit body entirely funded by members' annual dues. Every resident of Brookview is a member as described in the encumbrance which is attached to every title in the community. Each member pays an annual fee, currently set by the members at $120 (plus GST) per year. This amount is levied on every lot in the community, whether developed or not. The fees are due each January 1 and an invoice is issued right after the AGM.

BHOA was established to enhance both the lifestyle and character of Brookview and its residents through the provision and maintenance of amenities throughout the neighbourhood. The Association holds an Annual Members' Meeting each year where any member can bring questions or concerns to the board and membership at large. At the annual meeting, a nine-member board of fellow Brookview residents is elected for two-year terms. The board oversees the day-to-day operations of BHOA and acts as a front line for dealings with outside parties and concerned residents.

The board holds regular meetings where routine administrative matters are dealt with, new ideas for the community are discussed and the proposed annual budget is prepared. These meetings are open to any interested residents. For information on the time and location of the next meeting, simply call any board member or the Association's administrator. You will find these names and phone numbers on the reverse side of this sheet.

What Does BHOA Do?

BHOA has been the driving force behind many of the features that make Brookview a great place to live. In the beginning the developer put in extra pathways and parklands to improve the sale of lots. BHOA maintains these additional amenities to ensure that housing values in the community are maintained. From the outset, BHOA has worked closely with the various levels of government and developers to ensure prudent and consistent development of the neighbourhood and surroundings. BHOA is consulted by the City of Edmonton with respect to development of transportation and zoning plans.

Brookview has the drypond and many beautiful treed walkways. BHOA is solely responsible for the maintenance of common areas not owned by the City and provides all grass cutting and snow removal for these areas. BHOA provides additional grass cutting and snow removal to lop up' City maintained areas to a level consistent with the neighbourhood's other spaces.

The walkway lights installed on the Burton Road walkway were contracted and paid for by BHOA. As well, additional lighting was installed in the Buchanan Road walkway. BHOA took over the last of the walkways owned by developers and upgraded them to Brookview standards by paving them, adding lighting where necessary, putting in garbage and dog litter receptacles and landscaping. In the last several years, area beautification has been a priority of the board. Many new trees were, and are, being added and a new permanent BHOA sign was installed on Bulyea off 40th Ave. to replace the temporary signage that was pervasive before. Recently BHOA has painted the fence around the outside of the community and improved the Bulyea Road entrance.

The Association put up the skating rink lights for the benefit of all residents. In close cooperation with the Brookview Community League (BCL), BHOA helps maintain the very high quality of ice. BHOA was instrumental in providing a parking lot for residents who wish to use the rink or playing fields.

With the Community League, BHOA is involved with the spring neighbourhood clean up, playground development and the Winter Carnival.

BHOA and the Community League

Membership in the Community League is voluntary, with an annual membership fee. A membership is required in order to participate in any activity organized by the Brookview Community League or any other City community league. These activities include skating lessons, various sports programs (soccer, ringette, hockey, etc.), activities at the George H. Luck School such as drop in badminton and basketball, aerobics classes, pre-school gym night and so on.

The Community League is responsible for recruiting and coordinating volunteers to organize and run these programs. It is the responsibility of the League to enter into leases with the City of Edmonton for the facilities located on Parks and Recreation Department land. These facilities include the playground, the tennis courts the skating rink and the rink change trailer.

The ultimate goal of the Brookview Community League (Edmonton) Society and the Brookview Community Association Ltd. (BHOA) is to work together to meet the needs of all Brookview residents.

The Annual Members' Meeting:

Why Should You Attend?

BHOA must make significant decisions about what long-term direction it should take and what activities are appropriate for it to fund with the members'- annual dues. We have community facilities that are the envy of many older neighbourhoods. Most of the lots in Brookview are occupied and now is the time to plan ahead!

A number of worthy projects are available to the residents and members of the Brookview Community Association. Consultation with all members is needed to choose what BHOA should be doing over the next several years.

The annual members' meeting is a forum for everyone to come out and have their say. The current board encourages all members to attend and help guide BHOA into the next phase of its existence.

Please plan to attend the Annual Members' Meeting to help shape the future of your community. The date for the meeting is not yet set, but you will receive notice of the date and time when it is about to occur. Come out, have a coffee and a doughnut, and give your input about the future of Brookview.

 

Architectual Guidelines

Brookview does not have strict guidelines like other communities.  We do however have recommendations for roofing and fencing.  Most of the original homes built in Brookview had roofing material that was made up of wooden shakes.  This gave a consistent look and feel to the community.  As well, the style and colour of the fences added to the consistency of our perimeter and walkway fencing that adds to the value of our neighbourhood.

If you are thinking of replacing your roof, please consider non asphalt products.  Considering the cost differences, you may lean toward asphalt shingles and there are some designs that imitate the look of shakes.  Here are some examples of other roofing materials:

As far as fencing is concerned, it is the desire of the community and the homeowners’ association that we all remain with the same style and colours.  Just imagine how it would look from the Whitemud Drive or Terwillegar Drive if we had a checker board of colours and styles of fence!

Standard colours for painting fences in Brookview

The original colour scheme used by the developers was General Paint “New Bark” for the rails and posts and General Paint “Fawn” for the fence boards. If you use these colours when painting your fence, particularly the outside fences and those along the walkways, you will help contribute to the overall cohesive look of the neighbourhood.

When it comes time to repair or replace your fence, the homeowners’ association does have a policy where some homeowners that share their fencing with common area can request financial assistance.  See this policy here.

BHOA FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions regarding BHOA

1. Do I have to belong to BHOA?

Yes. If you own a home in Brookview there is an encumbrance on your property, which obliges you to pay the annual BHOA membership fee. BHOA fees run for the calendar year from Jan 1 to Dec 31. All fees paid after April 1st are subject to interest charges. It is the responsibility of the current homeowner to pay all outstanding fees owed to BHOA. 

2. What value do I get for my annual fee?

BHOA provides excellent value to its members through development and maintenance of common areas within the community and representation to the city on issues of interest to all Brookview residents. All current (paid up) BHOA members have a vote at the annual meeting and thus take part in the development and well being of our community.

3. How can I help?

There are lots of ways to help in our community. The best way is to come out to meetings and/or identify yourself as someone who would like to volunteer. BHOA’s primary requirement is for people to volunteer to sit on the board and for people to come out to meetings to help run the association. Volunteers are often needed for community projects as well.

4. How is BHOA notified of a change in home ownership?

BCAL is not automatically notified when property in Brookview changes hands, and this sometimes leads to confusion for the new homeowner. It is the responsibility of the purchaser (through their lawyer) to notify BHOA of the change in ownership. 

5. Who is responsible for cutting the grass and clearing the snow on the walkway behind my house?

It depends. Most of the interior walkways are owned and maintained by BHOA. The City of Edmonton owns the remaining walkways, but BBHOA does provide some supplemental service on these walkways to ensure a common standard of care and service in Brookview. A map is available which identifies ownership of the various walkways.

6. Who is responsible for the trees in Brookview?

The city owns the boulevard land and any trees located on it. They are responsible for pruning and pest problems of these trees, so if the tree in front of your home requires attention, do not hesitate to call them. BHOA is responsible for the care and maintenance of trees on BHOA owned walkways. Guidelines have been set for the maintenance of the trees and for the safety of pedestrians on BHOA walkways. 

7. Who is responsible for grass cutting on the boulevards?

Although the city owns the boulevard land, the city’s bylaws state that the homeowner is responsible for the care and maintenance of the grass on it, including the grass along the side street for those homes on corner lots.

8. Where should sump pump drain hoses be run?

According to city bylaws, sump pump hoses must run to the front of the property and not drain onto any other property, including neighbours’ yards, city property or any walkways. Residents who allow their sumps to drain onto BHOA land create a water problem that effects all residents of Brookview. If you have any questions or concerns in this area call the city drainage department.

9. Are there standard colours for painting fences in Brookview?

Not officially, but the original colour scheme used by the developers was General Paint “New Bark” for the rails and posts and General Paint “Fawn” for the fence boards. If you use these colours when painting your fence, particularly the outside fences and those along the walkways, you will help contribute to the overall cohesive look of the neighbourhood.

10. Who do I call for information on community run programs and obtaining access to the tennis courts?

The Brookview Community League runs the majority of the programs in Brookview. The League is also the organization that gives access to the tennis courts. For the combination to the lock at the court call 437-8761. Watch for the Newsletter, it will have a listing of the current volunteer running the different programs.

11. Can a resident add or remove trees from a walkway?

According to the city guidelines and the BHOA walkway guidelines “No resident may plant, move or trim a tree on the walkways”. All vegetation planted on BHOA walkways is the property of BHOA and it is the responsibility of BHOA to maintain them. Any changes to the soil level, ground cover and trees must have board approval prior to the change.

Brookview - Who we are

 Brookview is a community of 1196 homes in South West Edmonton. The official City name for us is Bulyea Heights.  When the community was first developed, the land developers decided that Brookview would sell more homes and thus most of the signs refer to the name "Brookview".   At the time that the community was designed and built, the land developers wanted to make Brookview a walkable community and decided to add more walkways into the plan than the City allowed for.  These extra walkways do not belong to the City, but belong to the community and therefore must be maintained by the community.  The community had to create a homeowners association to take care of this property. 

 

BHOA --Brookview  Community Association Ltd,  (BHOA) has a mandate to maintain its walkways by maintaining the landscaping and removing the snow from the sidewalks that it owns.  As well, BHOA also supports the maintainance and improvements of many assets throughout the community which improves the overall value of the entire community and its residents.  BCAL membership is mandatory for all Brookview residents. BHOA is an incorporated non-profit organization and it is supported in full (100%) by the membership fees from each household collected on an annual basis.

 

BCL -- Brookview Community League (optional membership) – recreational programs and events
Brookview also has a community league which offers recreational programs and events. The Brookview Community League, BCL, is a member of   Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, EFCL and its funding comes from the City and from the membership. The membership is optional.
 
 For further information regarding Brookview owned lands, email service@brookview.ca. Much like in the other parts of Edmonton, our grounds, parks, trees, roads, etc. are maintained by the City. For any maintenance issues on the City property or for an enforcement of a City's bylaw, please call 311 to be transferred to the right department. 
 

 

The community of Brookview collectively owns three walkways, totaling 1 mile, as indicated in the map. That's why Brookview has a homeowners' association.  

The History of the Brookview Community Association Ltd - BCAL

 

The History of the Brookview Community Association Ltd (BCAL)
(under continual construction)
 
In the beginning, there was a mass of farmland in the southeast corner of the current intersection of Whitemud Drive and Terwillegar Drive. This land was subdivided into land that could be turned into residential lots. The City of Edmonton called this subdivision Bulyea Heights. The developers of the community decided that Bulyea Heights would not sell lots and decided to call it Brookview, which they felt would be more appealing to potential families thinking of moving into the area.
The developers, Melcor and Genstar had other ideas for the community as well and decided that they wanted this community of Brookview to have a vast network of walkways that would make Brookview a very walkable and friendly community.   The City of Edmonton did not agree. The amount of walkways that the developers wanted to put into the community far exceeded what the City was willing to allocate into new subdivisions. If the developers wanted to have these walkways, then the community would have to own and maintain them themselves. This could only be accomplished if there was a revenue generating body such as a homeowners association, just like condominiums have. Thus the Brookview Community Association (BCAL)  was created. BCAL would require every home in Brookview to pay an annual fee of $80 that would be used to maintain the grass and sidewalks and lighting on the land that it would own. This association would also be responsible for such things as the tennis court, hockey rink and playground that the developers built in order to appeal to new home buyers.
At the start of the Brookview Community Association, the board consisted of members from Melcor and Genstar. Eventually this was replaced with a board made up of volunteer home owners from Brookview.
The original intent of the Community Association was to act as both homeowners association and community league as outlined in it’s 1986 Memorandum of Association:
2.       The objects for which the company is established are:
               2.1         For the sole purpose of acting as a not-for-profit community league or association….
            2.5         Generally to act as a not-for-profit community league or association for Brookview
In 1993, it became evident that the association could not be a community league. Community leagues needed to be registered under the Societies Act and needed to have a volunteer membership, whereas BCAL’s membership was compulsory. Community Leagues could run programs such as soccer and apply for grants and run bingos and casinos. It was decided that a separate Brookview Community League needed to be established and on May 28, 1993, the Brookview Community League (Edmonton) Society was incorporated. (Commonly referred to as BCL)
BCAL continued to function into the mid 1990s as an overall community organization, sponsoring pancake breakfasts and winter carnivals. As it started to make improvements outside of it’s specifically owned lands, it’s board decided to pave the playground parking lot in 1998 and was met with resistance from some homeowners that believed the phrase, “common lands and amenities” did not mean the general Brookview community and that BCAL should restrict itself to only maintaining the walkways that it owned.
On April 30, 1998, BCAL held a Special General Meeting and changes were agreed upon to the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association. These documents governed how the Brookview Community Association should run and what powers it has. The changes decided upon would clarified the role that BCAL had in Brookview, allowing it to clearly sponsor, support and finance any activity that supported the betterment of it’s members in the Brookview Community. On August 26, 1998, a court order was granted that made the changes to the Memorandum and Articles of Association binding and legal. Highlights of the changes included:
An interpretation and definition of “Common Lands and Amenities” which would mean:
(i)                those lands owned or leased by the Company; and
(ii)              all grounds, parks, buildings, parking facilities, recreational
amenities, landscaping and all other amenities, which are common
facilities located within Brookview and designated by the Board as
Common Lands and Amenities;
 
The amendments gave BCAL the ability to make a difference to all of Brookview:
 
2.2       To provide for the ownership, acquisition, operation, care, maintenance,
construction, expansion and alteration of Common Lands and Amenities and to
enter into Agreements in connection therewith;
2.3          Generally to act as a not-for-profit community association for Brookview, and in
so doing carry out the following:
(i)                Manage and operate the community functions of the Company;
(ii)              Coordinate social and other community functions that the Members
assign to the Company; and
(iii)            Promote the community interests of the Members of the Company;
2,4          To manage and control landscaping features and other fixtures which may be
erected or placed on or in Brookview by or for the Company or have been or are
placed on or in Brookview by the Company;
2.5          Generally to carry out all duties and functions assigned to the Company under
those encumbrances registered against the title of each lot located in Brookview;
2.6          To collect fees, assessments and other charges from the owners of parcels within
Brookview to provide for the performance of the duties and functions of the
Company; and
2.7          To do all such lawful things as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the

In summary, the changes made to the Articles of Association in 1998 gave BCAL the ability to any make changes to the general community of Brookview,  that the board sees fit to benefit the entire community. Such enhancements recently include the painting of perimeter and main roadway fencing, the erection of south entrance brick Brookview sign, the financial assistance in the building of the Brookview Centre and the sponsoring the outdoor ice rink.
In 2000, the BCAL board commissioned a reserve fund study that determined what it would cost Brookview to maintain and repair all the assets that it was responsible for in the community. It was determined that based on the results of the report, a reserve fund would have to be established in order to prepare BCAL financially for the inevitable repair and replacement of items such as the sidewalks and tennis courts and the community sign. Up until this time, homeowners had paid $80 per year and even when the GST was put in place, the $80 fee did not increase. At the 2000 AGM, members voted to increase the fees to $120/year plus GST. This increase would allow the association to put 20% aside into the reserve fund and still be able to afford to maintain its other financial obligations. The reserve fund was indeed deemed necessary in 2003, when close to a kilometer of the community’s 1.6 kilometers of sidewalk was replaced due to extreme cracking.
 
From the beginning of BCAL’s existence, it was implied that it owned the tennis court and outdoor ice rink and that it was responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of those facilities. The ownership was never truly possible as these facilities were located on City leased land. The community league operated the programs that used these facilities, but needed ownership in order to insure them properly. On January 1, 2003, a Memorandum of Agreement was made between BCAL and the community league that formally gave ownership of the rink, tennis court to the community league. 
 
In June of 2004, cosmetic changes were made to the Articles of Association that removed much of the references to Genstar and Melcor.
In 2007, another reserve fund study was commissioned that confirmed that BCAL was handling its reserve fund appropriately.
 
In summary, the Brookview Community Association is now moving forward with the complete understanding of it’s capabilities, responsibilities and empowerment to maintain and improve the community of Bulyea Heights. The community has the unique situation whereas both the homeowners association and the community league share the same boundaries. Together both groups will be able to continue to make Brookview vibrant and visually and culturally appealing for both current and future residents. BCAL will strive to bring the community together and bring a sense of community to the members of Brookview.
