The Sidewalk Rebate Program allows homeowners to apply for financial assistance in the form of partial rebates to help reduce the expense of sidewalk/curb repairs and replacements. Note: This does not include driveway aprons; projects started before the application is approved will be considered on a case by case basis. The eligible rebate that residents can receive range from 50-70% of the repair cost. The City will determine the total rebate estimate based on whether or not your property is located in a federally-designated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) geographic area.
Once a request is received, Public Works staff will complete an initial investigation of the requested sidewalk within 10 working days. An eligible project scope and rebate estimate will be emailed to you. You’ll have 15 business days to accept or reject this estimate. If you do not respond within the allotted 15 business days, the request will be closed. If you accept the estimate, you can then select and hire your own contractor to complete all necessary sidewalk repairs within 60 business days. Once repairs are finished, submit your completed rebate forms and copy of invoice (or receipt) from the contractor itemizing work and costs. Once repairs have been inspected and approved, you will receive a rebate check by mail for the eligible amount of the repair cost, not to exceed $3,000. Your check will be mailed to you within 30 business days.
