History of the Hodgson Neighbourhood

The Hodgson neighbourhood was named after John Hodgson (1888-1969) who was the city comptroller and financial commissioner for the City of Edmonton for nearly 40 years.  John Hodgson came to Edmonton from England in 1913, where he had worked as a chartered accountant.  The neighbourhood began to experience the bulk of its residential development in the early 2000s, and the housing mix is split between low and medium density housing forms.  Prior to urban development in the early 2000s the land was used primarily for agricultural purposes, but there were also limited residential uses, a few woodlots and a natural wetland located within the plan area.

Hodgson is located within the Terwillegar Heights Servicing Concept Design Brief (SCDB) area and encompasses about 72 hectares of land.  Whitemud Creek Ravine forms the eastern border of the neighbourhood, providing residents with access to one of Edmonton’s significant natural areas.  Access into the neighbourhood is provided by Rabbit Hill Road (north-south access) and 23rd Avenue (east-west access).

 Hodgson Homeowners Association

Hodgson is serviced by the Whitemud Ridge homeowners association.  The primary purpose of the Association is to fund and maintain structural improvements as installed by the Developer and maintain open spaces to a higher standard than that is provided by the City of Edmonton.  Membership in the WRHA is mandatory.  Encumbrances were placed on title to ensure the WRHA would have the ability to collect annual fees allowing the Association to fulfill their objectives.  The 2013 fees are $108.00 for single family homes, $36.35 for bare-land condos, and $12.75 for the Chateaux at Whitemud Ridge condos.  While it is the City of Edmonton's responsibility to maintain all open spaces and boulevards, WRHA augments the city's services by engaging landscape contractors.
