DAMAGE & DESIGN CONTROL DEPOSIT
A $5000 Damage & Design Control Deposit forms part of the sales agreement and total purchase price. Upon satisfaction of all purchaser building obligations this deposit will be refunded. Requirements for applying for the damage and design deposit refund will be dependent on which category the current resident falls into. Categories and requirements are as follows:
Resident is original purchaser of lot: The damage and design deposit can be filled out and submitted directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. The name of the applicant for deposit refund is to match the name provided for offer to purchase.
Resident has purchased home from preferred builder: The damage and design deposit must be filled out and submitted to the home builder. At this time, dependant on the original agreement between the builder and the developer, the builder shall submit refund request in writing to email@example.com with the refund form attached. If the deposit is to be provided to the resident direct, the builder must submit in writing, at that time, that the developer is authorized to provide the deposit to the resident.
Resident has purchased lot from other party prior to completion of landscaping and/or has not applied for the damage deposit: The resident must ensure they are provided in writing from the prior resident that the damage deposit is to be provided to the current resident.

The development agreement is an agreement between the rural municipality of East St Paul and the Developer(s) of Countryside Crossing. To view a copy of this agreement contact Mark Penner at Royal LePage Prime at 204-989-7900.
The Developer requested a Development Agreement Amendment in the summer of 2018 to allow for some updates to the existing lot types.
The amendments are as follows, and apply to any lot purchased after August 1, 2018. A full copy of the Development Agreement will be provided to any purchaser:
1. Update Paragraph 15 (q).
Existing: “For the lots adjacent to the retention pond within the Planned Area, only walkout basements shall be permitted on the north side and lookout basements on the south side”.
Update: “For the lots adjacent to the retention pond within the Planned Area, only walkouts shall be permitted on the north side and walk-out hybrid’s on the south side”.
2. Updated Schedule F-2 & Schedule F-3. Lot Grade Plan East & Lot Grade Plan West.
3. Added the following paragraph:
27. Rules related to lot grades and associated housing design.
Walk-out (North side of Retention Pond)
A walk-out basement can be achieved through a sloped lot, so that part of the basement floor is above ground, with a door opening outward to permit egress and ingress to the rear yard.
Walk-out Hybrid (South side of Retention Pond)
A walk-out hybrid basement can be achieved through a sloped lot, so that part of the basement floor is above ground, with a doorway to permit egress and ingress to the rear yard. The stairs, if required, must be located inside the house, stairs down to basement level on the exterior of the house will not be accepted. The finished house grades, at the front and rear of the property must be in accordance with the lot grade plan. Driveway grade must be 8% or less.
A look-out basement can be achieved through a sloped lot, so that the basement can have a higher ceiling and the windows can be made larger. A door is not permitted at the basement level.
A half walk-out basement can be achieved through a sloped lot, so that part of the basement floor is above ground, with a doorway to permit egress and ingress to the rear yard. The stairs, if required, must be located inside the house, stairs down to basement level on the exterior of the house will not be accepted. The lot grade on a half walk-out varies along with the width of the lot. The finished house grades, at the front and rear of the property must be in accordance with the lot grade plan. Driveway grade must be 8% or less.
A half look-out basement can be achieved through a sloped lot, so that the basement can have a higher ceiling and the windows can be made larger. A door is not permitted at the basement level. The lot grade on a half-look out lot varies along with the width of the lot. At the high side – typical house/lot design would apply. Toward the lower side – the lookout definition would apply (to the low portion of the lot only).
A split lot is one where the grades/drainage gets ‘split’ at some point along the property. In other words, there is a split in the drainage pattern, it does not just drain front to back or side to side. A door is not permitted at the basement level. Therefore, only Look-outs & Half Look-outs will be permitted on Split lots.
For all lot types, stairs as a component of the deck structure that lead to the rear yard are permitted.
4. Add the following paragraph 15 (s):
For the walk-out hybrid lots, the property owner will have to provide an egineer/geotech confirmation that the rear door will be placed at such an elevation that it is above any flood risk from the pond.
