Sidewalk or Curb & Gutter Replacement

Written by East Central

Topics: Sidewalk, curb, gutter replacement

By City Ordinance, the repair or replacement of deteriorated sidewalk and curb and gutter in the public way is the responsibility of the adjacent private property owner.  Property owners can hire a contractor to accomplish the required concrete repairs, which requires a permit to work in the public way, or property owners can take advantage of one of the following programs offered by the City:
1)  Streets Division 50/50 Concrete Replacement Program
This cost-sharing program splits the actual cost of replacement between the adjacent residential property owner and the City on a 50/50 basis.  Property owners must pay for the work prior to the start of construction.  Construction estimates are provided without charge and work is scheduled on a “first come first served” basis.  Further information can be obtained by emailing Andy Bath at andrew.bath@slcgov.com or calling 801-535-6934.
2)  Special Assessment Area (SAA)
A concrete replacement Special Assessment Area is created to resolve all of the deteriorated concrete problems within a defined district.  The City and the adjacent private property owners share the replacement costs on a 50/50 basis.  Property owners have the option of paying off the concrete replacement assessment over a five-year period.  Further information regarding SAA’s can be obtained by contacting Lynn Jarman atlynn.jarman@slcgov.com or (801) 535-6016.
3)  Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Concrete Replacement
These federally funded concrete replacement projects are accomplished with no cost to the adjacent private property owner; however, funding is limited and work can only be accomplished in defined “target areas” based on restrictive federal guidelines.  Further information can be obtained by calling (801) 535-7961.
