Updates

8/29/2019 - We have 5 locations left to fix this year.  We hope to replace those sidewalks and landscape the rest of the properties next week.

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.
