Maintaining a sidewalk in a proper state, free from hazardous conditions is the responsibility of the residential or commercial property owner. Property owners can be billed by the City for installation or paving of a sidewalk if it is in the interest of public safety for the City to make such a repair.
However, the Recovery Roads Program does include some funding for repairs of sidewalks damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
To ensure your new sidewalk will be built to the proper standard, click here for the Guidelines for Sidewalk Construction. If your sidewalk is in the French Quarter/Vieux Carre or Downtown Development District (DDD) click here for Guidelines for Sidewalk Construction in the Vieux Carre or Guidelines for Sidewalk Construction in DDD.
