The Village Board approved changes to the Village's annual sidewalk replacement program in 2014 that will improve the Village's sidewalk infrastructure by eliminating trip hazards and create a safer sidewalk environment for pedestrians.
The changes involve implementing an annual inspection program that is designed to replace trip hazards located throughout the Village. This year, the program will emphasize replacing sidewalk in high pedestrian traffic areas located near schools, parks, churches, nursing homes, commuter parking lots, and commercial/retail business districts. Sidewalks in these areas will be replaced by the Village at its expense. Remaining funds will be made available to residents seeking to participate in the 50/50 shared cost program.
