Local Improvement Options

The Neighbourhood Renewal Program is paid for through a City-wide property tax reserve fund dedicated to the program. In conjunction with the program, the City offers cost-sharing opportunities between the City and property owners for two local improvement options—decorative street light upgrades and sidewalk reconstruction.
Elmwood Park needs to make a choice by July 2nd whether we will pursue an Expression of Interest on decorative streetlights and this means we need to pick the style of light. Then a letter will be sent to each homeowner in the area with our selection and the associated cost. If we have a majority support of a sampling of owners, the decorative lights are installed. If there is not enough support, we still receive new regular streetlights.
Examples of decorative streetlights options are:
As an example, a home owner with a typical 50ft lot would pay a one time cash payment of $360 OR $36 each year for 15 years for green streetlights with octagonal poles and a regular style light.
Our board invites you to a town hall meeting on Thursday June 27th at 7pm to discuss and choose an option. Light refreshments will be served and any attendees will be entered into a draw for K-days passes, prizes from Northlands and City of Edmonton attractions passes.
If you can't attend the meeting but want to give feedback on your preferred option, please email at
