On February 14, 2003 the Erlwyn Drive Residents Association (EDRA) purchased the 66 foot right-of-way known as Erlwyn
Finally, after about 50 years, the residents of Erlwyn Drive can now say that
their street organization owns and controls the road allowance. However, it is unfortunate that we couldnt have obtained control/ownership
sooner so that we personally could have had the power to give Enbridge Gas the permission to install a gas line in 2001, and
Bell Telephone Fiber Optics the permission to go ahead and install their underground phone lines in 2002.
approach Enbridge Gas and Bell Telephone to determine if they are still receptive to installing their respective lines along
Erlwyn Drive. Since we now have ownership of the road, we can provide the necessary legal easement documentation required
by those companies.
You, as members of the EDRA, now have complete control of the right-of-way (ROW).
Members of the EDRA will be able to use their voting capabilities to determine the operation and future of Erlwyn Drive. The
purchase has ensured that any existing structures, driveways, parking areas, fences or other objects on the ROW, as well as
the temporary parking of vehicles/boats on the ROW, can remain unchanged. However; in the future if anyone wishes to erect,
place or modify anything on the 66 foot ROW they must submit a written request to the EDRA which will then be brought forward
for a membership vote.
For the main residential portion of Erlwyn Drive, the breath of the 66 foot ROW basically
extends from the hydro poles on the west side of the road, to the hydro poles on the east side of the road. The length of
the ROW extends from Ennis Road at the north end, to the Skyline fence/gate at the southern boundary of 705 Erlwyn Drive.
