DENVER — The city of Denver in July announced plans to require residents to repair damaged sidewalks, a program that kicked off in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in August.
Property owners throughout the Mile High are subject to inspection. If an inspector determines that a sidewalk needs to be repaired, the city will give property owners 45 days to fix it.
But how do you know if your sidewalk is hazardous and may be flagged by an inspector?
Denver Public Works on Tuesday tweeted a video (below) illustrating for residents when they might have to fix their sidewalk.
Here are the main things to look for:
- Uneven sidewalk section with a difference greater than 3/4 inch. (That would need to be leveled.)
- Crack in the sidewalk greater than 3/4 inch. (That would need to be fixed.)
- Excessive sloping. (That would need to be leveled.)
- Badly damaged. (That would need to be replaced.)
