Sidewalks

Stephenville Sidewalk Program

The City of Stephenville has funded a program for residents and businesses to participate in the Matching Grant Sidewalk Replacement Program. The program provides an opportunity for citizens to expedite sidewalk repairs or replacement of eligible sidewalks by covering some of the financial burden. The City will share the cost 50/50 between the City and the owner, and a 30/70 split, between the City and commercial properties.

The City recognizes that improvements to the sidewalks around Stephenville will reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality, keep pedestrians safe throughout the city, keep our city connected and accessible, improve appearance of the City and promote a healthy community.

The City of Stephenville hopes this program will encourage program participation by residents who want their sidewalk repair expedited.

City financial participation is limited to removal and replacement of only the portion of the sidewalk parallel to the public street, a standard-width section of sidewalk that connects to the public street, and one standard width panel of lead walk to connect the public sidewalk with the lead walk. The lead walk, which is the portion of the sidewalk that connects the public sidewalk to the house, will be solely the property owner’s responsibility, and will not be eligible for use of the matching grant funding.

Repair of damaged irrigation systems, replacement of sod or landscaping, leveling or replacement of soil, and repairs which are not the direct result of the sidewalk replacement project are not eligible for program-funded reimbursement.

Full payment from the property owner for their share of the sidewalk replacement will be due upon application approval. A formal performance agreement between the City and property owner will be required to establish the conditions of the engagement. For sidewalks that meet the criteria for participation, the cost will be dependent on the contract price at the time the formal agreement is submitted.
