Updates

6/12 - Currently, It looks like we might start concrete work next week?  We are removing trees in the lower section of ward 5 and continuing to remove trees in wards 3 and 4.  They may start trees in wards 1 and 8 this week or next.  Stump grinding is taking place in ward 7 this week.

5/18 - We may start grinding stumps in Kenmore later next week.  We will probably not start removing sidewalks for at least 3 weeks.  We now have a map showing all of the address that will be fixed this year.  The link to the map is located under additional resoures

5/17 - We are currently taking trees down in wards 3 and 4.  The contractor may have the tree contrator start grinding stumps in 2 or 3 weeks (that is subject to change).  Next week I will mark trees in wards either in ward 1 or 8 or both.

5/7 - We are continuing to remove trees in ward 7.  Tomorrow I will start marking trees is the lower section of ward 5 and Ward 3. We will probably be cutting trees in Firestone Park for one more week.

4/26 - We are having the pre-construction meeting today.  Liberta plans to wait at least a month to give Barberton Tree time to get ahead of them.  Barberton Tree is still cutting trees in Kenmore and they are starting to cut trees in Firestone Park.  I will be marking trees in Firestone Park and South Akron this week.

4/19 - Liberta Construction will be using Barberton Tree for tree removal.  They will be starting in the Kenmore Area.  I have started to mark trees in the Kenmore area.  I will put another post when I find out when Barberton Tree wants to start.


Residential City-Wide Petition Sidewalk Program

The City of Akron has a program to replace an individual homeowner's substandard sidewalks and drive approaches if a residential property owner signs a petition agreeing to pay for a share of the costs. The rates will be locked in at the current rate at the time that the petition is turned in. Currently, we are using the 2009 rates:

Sidewalk $25.25 per front foot
Driveway Apron $3.05 per square foot
Curb (at apron only) $21.25 per front foot
Roof Drain Pipes (sidewalk to curb only) $29.00 each
Retaining Wall (along right of way) $11.00 per square foot

The City will construct the necessary improvements. The City will be responsible for replacing any sidewalk sections damaged by tree roots, provided those trees are in the lawn strip. The City will replace those damaged sidewalk sections and replant the tree at no cost to the property owner.

Commercial City-Wide Petition Sidewalk Program

The City of Akron has a program to replace substandard sidewalks and drive approaches at commercial or non owner-occupied residential property (i.e. a rental property or other business). The City will construct the necessary improvements. After the improvements are completed, the property owner shall be assessed 100% of the cost of construction plus the cost of engineering and inspection costs. The City will be responsible for any street tree work required including the re-planting of new street lawn trees at no cost to the property owner.
