Who Is Responsible For Taking Care Of Sidewalks?

Sidewalks are an important part of how people move safely throughout the City. The City actively plans for a well connected network of sidewalks to provide for safe pedestrian travel and encourage pedestrian activity. 

If a sidewalk is located adjacent to your property you are responsible for maintaining it. This means removing snow, ice, and/or items blocking the sidewalk. 

Adjacent property owners are also responsible for maintaining the sidewalk in good repair. If cracks, holes, or uneven areas become evident, the sidewalk should be repaired or replaced. A sidewalk permit (PDF) is required to help ensure proper design. 

If you have questions about sidewalks, please contact the Public Works Department
