Sidewalk Design and Construction

About Sidewalk Design and Construction

City Council established a process for requesting new sidewalks. The policy was established in 2012 and revised in 2015. The Council resolution can be found at this link: Resolution-2015-32

City Council requires that new sidewalk requests be approved by a majority of residents in a neighborhood in order for the City to begin design; neighbors must also approve designs prior to construction. Council sets the funding level for sidewalk construction  annually and projects are placed in a queue for design and construction.
