Sidewalk Program

To report a sidewalk issue please click here.

The repair or replacement of deteriorated sidewalk, drive approach, and curb and gutter in the 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 a commercial property, the owner will pay 100% of the cost.  Both options replace deteriorated concrete sidewalks, drive approaches, and curb & gutter.  Property owners must pay for the work before construction starts.

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

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 federal guidelines and defined in the Salt Lake City 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan.  Further information can be obtained by contacting Chris Norlem at or (801) 535-6289.
