Sidewalk Program

Responsive Margin

The repair or replacement of a deteriorated sidewalk, drive approach, and curb and gutter in a public way is the responsibility of the adjacent private property owner (City Ordinance 14.32.300). Property owners may hire a contractor to accomplish the required concrete repairs, which requires a permit to work in the public way, or they may take advantage of the 50/50 concrete program.

50/50 Concrete Program

The 50/50 concrete program is a cost-sharing program that splits the actual cost of replacement between the adjacent residential property owner and the City on a 50/50 basis.  For commercial properties, the owner will pay 100% of the cost, and this cost must be paid before construction starts. Payment is required to be added to the wait list for both residential and commercial jobs.

Construction estimates are provided without charge and work is scheduled on a “first come first serve” basis. To obtain an estimate, please contact Kyle Biggs at or 801-535-6934.

Concrete restoration includes the following:

  • 50/50 concrete program for deteriorated residential concrete sidewalks, drive approaches, and curb & gutter replacement
  • 100% concrete program for deteriorated commercial concrete sidewalks, drive approaches, and curb & gutter replacement
  • ADA ramps replacement
