Boulevards & Median Maintenance

A boulevard is the portion of City property between the curb or road’s edge and the adjacent front property line. Boulevards may also border sidewalks, multi-use trails and alleys. Residents are responsible to care for the boulevard, alley and driveway crossing adjacent to their property line.
This means, as a homeowner, you are now responsible for the maintenance of the boulevard landscaping in front of your home to the curb, and if you are a corner lot, the flankage boulevard along the side of your property to the curb. Maintenance includes mowing, watering, fertilizing, weed control and replacement, should the grass die.
We also want to remind you that during the winter months you are responsible for the snow removal from the sidewalk in front of your home and, if on a corner lot, the flankage sidewalk.
We trust that as a responsible homeowner you will maintain the boulevard area with the same pride as your own front yard.
We thank you for your cooperation and continued diligence resulting in a beautiful neighborhood.
Maintaining the Boulevard
  • Cut grass to a reasonable length on your portion of the boulevard
  • Remove fallen leaves and debris from the boulevard beside your property
  • Prune trees and shrubs around your yard so they do not hang over the sidewalk or block pedestrians


Responsible Practices
  • Do not attach signs or devices to City trees
  • Obtain City approval before building structures or planting trees on any portion of a boulevard
  • Call the city of Airdrie to remove, prune, or repair any City tree on the boulevard
