D.1.3.3 Sidewalk Maintenance

Action

Improve sidewalk maintenance.

Why

Sidewalks typically make up the vast majority of your district’s streetscape; therefore, they make a big first impression. If your sidewalks are covered in garbage, snow, weeds, or other debris it will give off a negative impression of disinvestment.

How

Tactics to help improve sidewalk maintenance:

  • Establish ordinances that clearly explain the roles and responsibilities for building owners and business owners for maintenance
  • Enforce ordinances consistently
  • There is a reliable, designated maintenance provider
