Evergreen Architectural Controls

It is important to build homes that are appropriate for the size and grade of the lot. There are a variety of lot types in Evergreen, which will need to be designed for accordingly. Each of the lot types has its own development controls that are registered on each individual land title. 

 

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROLS FOR ALL PHASES AND LOTS

These controls apply to lots regardless of the phase and lot type and are in addition to the controls found in "Architectural Controls By Phase & Lot Type" section below.

 

ATTACHED GARAGE PLACEMENT

In addition to the controls noted below, for lots that require the construction of an attached garage, a separate interest will be registered against the title of each single-unit lot indicating which side of the lot the garage must be placed against. The intent of this control is to pair garages together against a common property line in order to provide a better streetscape appearance. The garage side placements are shown in the attached Lot Information Map.

CORNER GARAGE PLACEMENT

All corner lots that require an attached garage have the following caveat registered on title: The garage must be located on the side of the property that is furthest from the intersection. the image below demonstrates the permitted options for the placement of an attached garage on a corner lot.

Although the development controls for each respective lot are listed in the Lot Information Package, please review the Development Controls listed in your “Agreement for Sale”. This will help to ensure that your understanding of the Development Controls as listed in the Lot Information Package is in agreement with the Development Controls as listed in your “Agreement for Sale”.

 

Please be advised that if the dwelling is constructed in violation of the Development Controls set out in the Agreement of Sales and as registered on Title as a Building Restrictive Covenant, the City may take legal action to require compliance. Issuance of a Building Permit will not absolve the Purchaser from meeting this requirement. Such action could result in the demolition or partial demolition of the building at the expense of the Purchaser. 

 

 

PLAN APPROVAL PROCESS

Saskatoon Land’s approval of dwelling plans is required prior to the submission of a building permit application. Builders are encouraged to meet with Saskatoon Land during the design stage to avoid potential delays.

The following information must be submitted to Saskatoon Land prior to the submission of a Building Permit Application:

  • Completed Application Form

  • One hard or digital copy of the working drawings, including site plan, floor plan, and dwelling elevations. All exterior dwelling materials and square footage must be identified on the elevation plans.

**Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will NOT be accepting any hard copies of application forms or working drawings. All documents must be submitted digitally.

To avoid delays, application forms and dwelling plans should be submitted to Saskatoon Land well in advance of applying for a Building Permit. Incomplete submissions will be held until the complete application is submitted. Plans will be reviewed for adherence to the architectural controls, and Saskatoon Land may contact the applicant to discuss any required revisions. Plans which do not meet all the architectural controls will be reviewed by Saskatoon Land’s Design Review Committee. The Design Review Committee’s decision is final and any revisions will be required to be made before approval.

Upon approval of the drawing set, Saskatoon Land will issue an approval letter to the applicant. Following this, builders may apply for their respective Building Permit. At the building permit stage, Saskatoon Land may review the Building Permit drawings again to ensure they are substantially consistent with the plans submitted during the review process.

Periodically, Saskatoon Land will inspect the project to ensure it is in substantial accordance with the approved plans. Builders/homeowners will be responsible for correcting any deficiencies to dwelling elevations which deviate from the approved plans.
