    Safe Sidewalks Program

    Looking to fast-track sidewalk repairs? Safe Sidewalks is a new cost-sharing initiative that reimburses residents for a portion of sidewalk repairs they complete themselves.

    The Safe Sidewalks Program reimburses 50% of the repair costs, up to $2,500 per resident property frontage. Income-qualified residents may receive a match of 75% of repair costs, up to $3,750 per property frontage.  

    Now accepting applications through March 31, 2022, residents must receive approval prior to starting work with their selected contractor. This program allocates Measure O funding to help expedite repairs and improve safety and accessibility in our neighborhoods.
