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 Homeowners Association Ltd, (BHOA) has the 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 maintenance and improvements of many assets throughout the community which improves the overall value of the entire community and its residents. BHOA 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.
The community of Brookview collectively owns three walkways, totaling 1 mile, as indicated in the map. That's why Brookview has a homeowners' association.
