What is an HOA?

Everything you need to know about Homeowners Associations

The Basics

A Homeowners Association is a non-profit society that manages a community’s features and assets for the benefit of all residents.

In Evergreen, gorgeous natural scenery is accented by its thoughtful amenities and trail system, making it one of Red Deer’s most outstanding neighbourhoods.

HOAs ensure that a higher standard is met in terms of amenities offered, up-keep of those amenities, and overall beauty and longevity of a community.

By purchasing a home in a neighbourhood with an HOA, you automatically become a member and are required to make annual payments.

The initial fees in Evergreen are estimated to be $100 per year.

The Benefits

Melcor builds communities that are more than just a collection of beautiful homes. They are places where families grow and neighbours connect.

They are master-planned and amenity rich. Melcor builds communities to a higher standard than most, which means including amenities that the City will not agree to maintain. 

Certain amenities within a community can only be provided if they can be maintained, via an HOA, such as:

  • Entrance plazas and features including electricity
  • Bridges, waterfalls and water features
  • Feature landscaping and planting
  • Community gateway and roundabout feature

The Legal Stuff

The Evergreen Homeowners Association is a non-profit society.

Membership in a community HOA is mandatory for all homeowners. This includes those living in both single and multi-family dwellings.

An encumbrance, registered on title in favour of the HOA, allows funds to be collected to cover the costs of maintaining and operating the HOA. A board of directors administers the HOA in accordance with the Articles of Association. Residents of Evergreen can hold director positions on the board.

Each homeowner is required to pay an annual fee to the HOA. Fees are collected once per year, with a maximum allowable fee set in the encumbrance on title.

You will receive an invoice for your fees in the mail. You will be given a variety of ways to pay your fees including:

  • Online
  • By cheque
  • By credit card

Unpaid HOA fees are sent to collections. A lien may be registered against your land title for unpaid fees.

Evergreen Phase 1 Amenities

These amenities in phase one will be maintained by the Evergreen HOA.

Year in Review

Season's Greetings!

It’s easy to look forward – to the next holiday party, next week, or even next year. We’re ready to take on 2019, but the holiday season is a reminder to slow down and use this time to reflect.

2018 was the year that saw Evergreen begin to evolve into its natural beauty. In 2019, we will do exciting things like:

  • Open our Streetscape showhomes in the spring
  • Watch the 2019 Kinsmen Dream Home take shape in Evergreen, opening in the fall and built by Larkaun Homes
  • Move-in the first Evergreen families and watch the community grow

But in order to get where we’re going we have to know where we’ve been.

Here’s what we did in 2018:

Features & Amenities

  • We planted 611 trees, 766 shrubs, 2,396 perennials and 635 grasses
  • The entrance feature and plaza were completed
  • Began creating the bridge and waterfall feature in the central park

Lots & Home Construction

  • 33 acres were developed into:
    • 118 single-family lots
    • 47 street townhome lots
    • A 2 acre multi-family site
    • 6.4 acres of open park space
  • 9 of 12 streetscape showhomes are under construction
  • 12 homes have been presold and are either under construction or preparing for construction

Roads & Trails

  • All roadways and paved rear lanes were completed
  • Decorative streetlights have been installed
  • The trail system has been laid out and paving has begun
  • 650 metres of asphalt trails were laid, looping around the constructed wetland

From everyone here at Melcor, working to bring the Evergreen vision to life, we wish you and your family a joyous holiday season.

Introducing: Streetscape Homes

Evergreen will be Red Deer’s newest community with old school charm. It will feature the modern amenities that fit today’s lifestyle wrapped around a collection of architecturally interesting homes.

For the first time, we will add new housing options to the Red Deer market, like Streetscape Homes.

Being the first to allow a variety of home styles in the same community will create more choice for home buyers while diversifying the streetscape of the community.

Streetscape Homes include a front-attached garage but shift the eye’s focus to the overall design of the home. Things like the front door, veranda or porch become the focal point of the exterior, instead of a protruding garage. 

This is accomplished by shortening the distance between the sidewalk and your front door.

Watch the video

Watch the video below to see how the main features of the home become flush with the garage, blending it in with the architectural detail and adding curb appeal.

Evergreen is proud to be the first community in Red Deer to offer new home styles, more choice, and ultimately the charm that you used to only find in mature neighbourhoods.

Streetscape Homes are now available to purchase in Evergreen. Visit one of our approved builders for more information.

Evergreen offers so many choices, naturally.
