Sidewalk Repair Program

The Sidewalk Repair Program was enacted by City Council in 1990 for expedient repair of frontage improvements damaged by street trees throughout the City. The program allows property owners to replace street trees, sidewalk, curb, gutter, and driveway and receive a partial reimbursement from the City. The program is funded yearly by the General Fund.
