Meadow Ridges Estates was designed and created with principles of environmental conservation in mind using the method of Open Space Design and as such is a bareland condo corporation.
Bare land condominium unit boundaries are defined by boundaries marked on the land; any buildings on the land are contained in the condominium unit. In the case of Meadow Ridge Estates, a condo unit is the “lot” and a purchaser owns everything contained within its boundaries including the home.
A bare land condominium complex may look like a neighbourhood of single-family homes or
townhouses. Bare land condominiums operate in the same way as conventional condominiums, but may not have as many common property elements since yards and driveways are located inside the
boundaries of each condominium unit.
The simple explanation of what common elements at Meadow Ridge Estates are would be to say everything that is not within a “lot” or owner’s unit and within the community's boundaries. Here are some examples of things that are common elements at Meadow Ridge Estates and maintained by the condominium corporation:
The Roads - All of the roads within the community of Meadow Ridge Estates are privately owned by the community
The Wells - All of the wells within Meadow Ridge Estates are owned by the community (each home has its own water treatment system)
The Wastewater Treatment Plant - A state of the art wastewater treatment plant was custom designed by engineers at WSP Group for Meadow Ridge Estates. A state of the art AdvanTex AX100 Treatment System with underground pressure lines connect each home, negating the need for traditional individual septic systems and helping to conserve land in the process.
Conserved Land - All of the untouched land at Meadow Ridge Estates are conserved in its natural state and require little if any maintenance. The entire community is 56 acres in total, which means approximately 35 -40 acres of land remain as natural green space for you and your family to enjoy in co-ownership with the rest of the residents at Meadow Ridge Estates.
Part of the process of setting up the Bare Land Condominium Corporation with the Nova Scotia
government involves determining how much the condo fees will be. This determination is made by an
independent engineer who takes into account reoccurring maintenance costs (such as running the waste water treatment plant) and projected maintenance costs into the future. The independent engineer determines the fee, not the developer. Other similar communities here in Nova Scotia have fees in the $40 to $150 per month range and at Meadow Ridge Estates they are $72.50 per month.
Open Space Development is a creative form of subdivision designed to conserve open space. The basic principle of the design is to locate homes on the portion of the site where the soils are best suited for development while retaining the remainder of the site as natural open space.
