Replacing Your Curb, Gutter, Sidewalk, Or Driveway

Property owners are required to maintain the sidewalk on the boulevard adjacent to their property. This includes repairing any broken or uneven concrete, and removing any snow or ice. Failure to do so may result in repairs or maintenance work being completed with the cost assessed to the property.

The City completed a city-wide sidewalk survey and rated all sidewalks based on condition. Those that are determined to be a trip hazard will be repaired first. Along with the survey, the City put in place a program to pay up to 50% of the cost of repairing a sidewalk that is considered a danger to pedestrians. The first targeted areas will be those located on priority routes and near the schools.

Each year the City calls for bids for concrete work for curb and gutter, sidewalks, and driveways. Property owners have the option of having these items replaced under the City's bid price and paying for the work upon completion or having the cost put on special assessments for that property. If you would like further information about this option, please contact the City Engineer's office at (701) 662-7600, ext. 2.

A permit is required any time you replace a curb, sidewalk or driveway located on the City right of way or boulevard. The Engineering Department will establish the sidewalk grade for purposes of drainage and public safety. There is no charge for the permit and permits may be obtained from the Engineering Department located at City Office.
