Where does the water come from?
A common well beside the water treatment plant (behind Lot 24) supplies water to the development. The treatment plant is carefully monitored and maintained. Chlorine is added and water is delivered to the homes by a common distribution system.
A Reverse Osmosis (RO) System is installed in each home for better drinking water.
What will the WBE utility rates be? What do they cover?
- WBE utilities cover water and wastewater (black and grey) and the maintenance of the system.
- The total cost of utilities will depend on the size of your family and usage. The cost will be in line with Lacombe County comparables.
Are there Homeowners Association Fees?
Nope! Zilch. Zero. Nada.
Is temporary housing allowed, such as an RV?
WBE allows temporary housing behind the home under construction, only when construction has commenced. RV parking on lots for extended periods of time before and/or after construction is not permitted.
Can I build a shop or other accessory building?
You can add an additional building on your property, up to 1200 SF and within the architectural guidelines.
Can I take down trees on my lot?
You bet. We know that to allow for your home, outdoor space and secondary building, some will have to go! However, in order to preserve the natural beauty of the development, there are guidelines to how much of your lot may be cleared. A non-treed lot will give you more flexibility!
Do I need to build a fence?
Only if you’re Wilson from Home Improvement. Otherwise, having a fence is not required. We are currently working on guidelines for those who do wish to build a fence. They will be in line with guidelines in other developments in the county.
