Property owners are responsible for upcoming mandatory sidewalk repairs
The goal of creating well-maintained sidewalks across Denver may soon become a headache for property owners.
Sidewalks around the city are about to undergo mandatory repairs on the property owners’ dime.
This month, a city inspector will start hunting for damaged and uneven sidewalks that need repair in Denver as part of the Neighborhood Sidewalk Repair Program. City ordinance says the cost to fix them falls on the property owners’ laps. Residents will have 45 days after notification to make the repairs.
Residents will receive a notice on their door and in the mail if the sidewalks on the property need repair, providing them with the requirements, estimated costs and more, according to the city.
Property owners have two options: They can either repair the sidewalks themselves or pay the city to do it.
The inspector is expected to start identifying sidewalks that need repair in mid-August.
