Community Entry Signs – Completed June 1, 2020

Landscaping

2020 & 2021- Weekly or biweekly summer landscaping depending on the area. Refer to the map below for details.

2019– In 2020 we got approved by the City of Edmonton and a motion was made at the AGM to distribute planters in designated areas throughout our community as shown by the map below. The board have selected the White Granite, Boulevard 28 planter made by Equinox. https://www.desertplanters.com/product/boulevard-self-watering-planter/

2020– This project was completed and the planters were delivered the last week of May 2020. White Granite was chosen because it was the only textured pot available in this line and would fade less over 10 years.

Fence Painting

2012-2015 – Fence painting was a phased project scheduled to be redone every 10 years.

2019– The Grange had a detailed report completed and there is a total of 11, 408 linear square feet of exterior developer fence that requires painting.

2020– Letters to all properties with exterior developer fences in The Grange will be contacted by mail this summer with details of the repairs they are required to complete prior to painting. If you are wondering if you have an exterior fence that will be painted by The Grange refer to the attached spreadsheet and map. Remember it is the homeowners responsibility to maintain and repair there own fence.

2021-Painting of the fences will begin in 2021. Fences 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 will be painted in 2021. Fence 4, and 5 are not exterior developer fences but the management companies will be contacted to see if they want to have the fence painted at the same time. The Grange will only paint every 8- 10 years so repairs done after painting will need to be painted by the homeowner.

2022 – Painting of fences 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, 31, 34, 25, 36, 37, 28 will be completed in the summer of 2022. The Grange will only paint every 8-10 years so repairs done after painting will need to be painted by the homeowner.

To see if your property (condos not included) has an exterior facing fence download “The Grange Properties With Exterior Developer Fences” below. If your address is there your exterior fence will be painted by The Grange. This still means you need to maintain it by painting the inside and replacing rotten posts and boards.

Mulch Replacement

2013, 2014, 2016, 2018 & 2019 – Mulch replacement was a phased project originally done every 6 years.

2020 – After much research and the completion of a landscaping tender the board has decided to dedicate $5000.00 per year to maintaining the mulch in the flower beds. This will help with weed control, water retention and provide nutrients to the many perennials located throughout our neighbourhood.

Areas for mulch top up are being identified by the landscaper and will be completed in June, 2020. Some of the areas identified in the tender are E, D, F, U, V, DD, EE, FF, R
