The Borough of Somerville, through a shared service initiative with the Somerset County Engineering Department, provides all roadway construction and engineering related services to the Borough.
The Borough employs a full-time Assistant to the Engineer who can assist with any questions regarding Engineering related issues.
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. This is an excellent opportunity to make sidewalk repairs or installations that you may have been putting off.
Flood information and mapping zones can be obtained from FEMA at fema.gov/floodmaps. This is where you can prepare a letter-size “Firmette,” showing the map panel name, your address, and the portion of the flood map associated with your property.
