The City’s annual sidewalk repair program completed the entire City district sidewalks in 2016, a 30 year (1986 to 2016) district-by-district sidewalk repair cycle. Please see the Sidewalk District Map below.
This year, 2017, the City does not have an annual sidewalk repair program. The City is hiring a Consultant to evaluate other alternatives for improving, prioritizing, and implementing a more efficient and cost effective sidewalk repair contract program compared to the current district-by-district sidewalk repair that would have a much greater impact on the condition of sidewalks throughout the City.
The City will resume the annual sidewalk program in 2018. Please call Jim Amores at (650) 496-5939 regarding annual sidewalk repair program.
The City has the “Hot Spot” program, also known as the sidewalk repair in-house program that address sidewalk, curb and gutter requests on a case by case basis. “Hot Spot” repair priority will be based upon the severity of the damage. Please use the PaloAlto311 mobile application to report a problem with sidewalks, curbs, or gutters.
