Somerville’s Voluntary Sidewalk Improvement Program for Residential Property Owners
The Sidewalk Improvement Program allows residents to replace all or part of an existing sidewalk, or driveway apron passing the same rate the Borough would receive onto the homeowner. You may also install a new sidewalk where none currently exists.
The Borough will assemble the applications, advertise and award the construction contract, and inspect the work to ensure quality.
The Sidewalk Improvement Program for Residential Property Owners is an excellent opportunity to make sidewalk repairs or installations that you may have been putting off. It is another way we’re making Somerville a better place for all of us.
Contact Brendan Nally, Assistant to the Engineer at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 908-704-2490 for an application and general information.
