The City has a Sidewalk In-Fill Public-Private Partnership program in conjunction with Measure K-14 projects where property owners agree to pay for one-half of the construction cost of new sidewalk fronting their property. The City pays for the design and one-half the construction cost of the new sidewalk. Funding for this program is limited and funds are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis during Measure the K-14 project design phase. Please see the Sidewalk In-Fill Public-Private Partnership Program page for more information. Property owners looking to construct new sidewalk without participating in the Public-Private Partnership program can submit an encroachment permit application and hire the necessary professionals to design and construct the new sidewalk.
