Enhanced Landscape Maintenance 

The City of Calgary has a program called ELM. Enhanced Landscape Maintenance.


The Enhanced Landscape Maintenance (ELM) program is a community-initiated program that fosters connectivity, community pride and enhances the visual esthetics of a neighbourhood.



When a community enters the program, it allows them to become stewards of the greenspaces, boulevards, pathways or parks within their neighbourhood –essentially partnering with Parks in the Service Delivery Continuum.

A participating ELM community, through their stewardship, ensures the following are completed:

The foundation of the program is that the annual funds designated to the greenspace in the community is given to the residents association and they enter into an agreement with a contractor. The designated funds are enough to maintain the City of Calgary current level of service. See Schedule 1



The ELM contract is 5 years in length between the NSRA and City of Calgary. However the NSRA with the support of PHEHA can determine the contract length with the contractor we select through a RFP Tender process.


Approval is needed from the PHEHA - Panorama Hills Estates Homeowners Association AGM  and the NSRA - Northstar Residents Association Ltd. AGM.
