When the community of Copperwood was first established, an encumbrance was registered against each lot to allow for the establishment of a neighbourhood homeowners association. The Copperwood Homeowners Association (CHOA) is comprised of all registered owners within the Copperwood area registered under that encumbrance. The fees collected each year allow for beautification enhancements to take place throughout our neighbourhood, complementing the work the City of Edmonton is already doing.
Invoices are typically sent out in February for payment by no later than May 31st.
The fees cover the period of June 1 through May 31 of the given year.
Fees are reviewed every year and are currently $185

Generally speaking, the responsibility of any HOA is to maintain areas of the defined neighborhood that are not maintained or provided by the city or to supplement the services already expected. In the case of CHOA, it is to maintain landscaping services along boulevards and common areas, maintain flower beds, provide flower pots and plantings. In addition the CHOA has also elected to maintain certain elements of wood fencing, stone structures and wrought iron in common areas. Refer to Society Bylaws.
When the community of Copperwood was first established, an encumbrance was registered against each lot to allow for the establishment of a neighbourhood homeowners association. The Copperwood Homeowners Association (CHOA) is comprised of all registered owners within the Copperwood area registered under that encumbrance. This is a legal entitlement of the HOA to collect annual payments and can not be opted out of by the homeowner.
This misconception is commonly heard and the reality is quite the opposite. The CHOA will assess interest penalties and legal caveat registrations against outstanding balances. Continued non-payment can result in significant costs that could be avoided by simply paying on time. See Collections Policy for details.
Invoices are mailed out to all known registered owners in February. The invoice is due by May 31 of that year. The Fee covers a 1 year period June 1 of the current year to May 31 of the following year.
The Fee covers a 1 year period and if you move in-between, provided it has been paid, the coverage continues for the new residents. There is no refund on the balance. Generally speaking prior to the transaction being finalized the lawyers handling the transition will reach out the CHOA to verify if any outstanding balances remain and will be dealt with at that time.
We would certainly appreciate receiving an email indicating when you would be moving so we can update our records to address future invoices to the new owners. We try our best to ensure there is an effective process in the back end to keep the Residents List as accurate as possible, however it ultimately is the owner's responsibility to notify the Association of change in ownership.

The registered encumbrance on the property is applied to the registered owner of the property. Therefore if you are renting, you would not be responsible for the Fee.
The best course of action is to start with 311 or the Edmonton 311 App, that will serve the needs for 90% or more of the inquiries we have traditionally been aware of, Eg trees, streetlights, garbage, vandalism, crime, unsightly property, parking complaints, noise.
The areas of jurisdiction that the CHOA can address is damages to community property (common fencing-wood-metal-stone), common area landscaping.
Specific requirements are listed on the Restricted Covenant for the home. These would have been provided at time of purchase. Please consult your lawyer to obtain the information or you can get a copy from any Registries office.
The only really compliance component for any home within the CHOA is outlined in your respective Restricted Covenant for Architectural Controls. Initial minimum landscaping requirements ( # of caliper trees, shrubs, etc.) are required when the home is first built but after that, there is very little influence any HOA has over the ongoing appearance and upkeep.
At a minimum, the only guidelines would be within the Edmonton Community Standards guidelines as to what violations would cause concerns from an enforcement perspective.
