Owners in Granville on the Water are collectively members of the Granville on the Water Homeowners Association. The Homeowners Association owns the roadways, the installed water supply and distribution system, and a number of common green space and water access parcels. Formed in 2005, the Association manages operations for the community. Roads and infrastructure are owned by the Association – by all the owners of lots and homes in the development – so management and maintenance are a part of the ongoing requirements for owners.

Homeowners Association - Origin & Covenants
The Homeowners Association was formed in 2005 to enable the community to manage its own water system, handling road maintenance and snow removal, and maintain the common lands.
The development began in the mid-2000’s. The Granville on the Water Homeowners Association Inc. was registered with the province. The Granville on the Water Utility Inc., owned by the Association, was registered and a pumphouse built with 2 wells. All roads and common areas, as developed, are owned by the GOTW HOA. Membership in the Assocation is automatic with ownership of lots in the community. Phase 1 and 2 combined has 40 lots and those owners are members. Phase 3 has a further 28 lots, with a further 21 lots in the last phase. All owners will be members.
A document highlighting the By-laws and origins of the two companies, as well as the covenants and the neighbourhood governing documents for all owners may be downloaded by Clicking this link to the GOTW Owners Info document. (PDF opens in a new window – 6.6MBytes)
GOTW has registered covenants with Rules and Regulations that contribute to the quality of the neighbourhood and the complementary high standards of construction in the development. The Rules & Regulations are found in the PDF GranvilleCovenants-2021-withForm.pdf to view or download
The Covenants originated with a document registered on title to the lands and applicable to all homesite owners. The original document contained the first Schedule ‘B’ – Protective Covenants (Rules and Regulations) (2005). Schedule ‘B’ was modified in 2006, 2019, and again in 2021. A transcribed copy of the registered document is found at : GOTW-DeclarationOfCovenants&Restrictions-COPY
Homeowners Association - Annual Fees
The Homeowners Association invoices member/owners annually with following fees :
|Water Supply : (regulated by IRAC)||$360||$180|
|Road Maintenance and Snow Removal||$400||$100|
|Capital Improvement Fund (2022-2026)||$800||$800|
|Accounting/Insurance||$ 50||$ 50|
The Capital Improvement Fund is in place to enable repaving of the roads owned by the Association, in due course …. We anticipate that to occur near 2026, with some modest maintenance of the roads in the meantime. With a newly paved road, the properties in the community will no doubt recoup the investment through increased home and lot values. New Buyers will have the benefit of this Fund in place
With more lots coming on-line, and more homes being built, the fees will allow a contingency fund as well, which may be required for ensuring the water pump house and all systems function well over the long haul.
