  3. Background


The Safe Sidewalks Program is a repair reimbursement program that aims to help expedite the repair needs throughout our residential areas by allocating $350,000 in total funding with $50,000 distributed to each of the seven City Council districts. Any unused funds may be used by Public Works to repair sidewalks throughout the city or returned to the Measure O Fund. 

The Safe Sidewalks Program will reimburse 50% of the repair cost (up to a maximum of $2,500) per resident property frontage. Income-qualified residents (per California Alternate Rates for Energy Income Qualifications) may receive a match of 75% of the cost of the sidewalk repair, subject to a maximum of $3,750 per property frontage.

The application period is open, and applications must be received by March 30 of the current fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Application approvals and permit authorizations will begin on July 1 of the current fiscal year.
