The City of San Antonio Sidewalk Cost Sharing Program is a voluntary program where owner-occupants and the City of San Antonio share in the cost of replacing sidewalks. For FY 2018 (October 1, 2017 – Sept 30, 2018), the City has $250,000 available that can be used towards repairing sidewalks and curbs along residential properties.
The cost share that residents are required to provide will range from 30-50% of the cost to replace the sidewalk. The share that residents need to provide will depend on their residential location. If the property is located in a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) area, as designated by the Federal Government, residents may qualify for the City paying 70% of the total cost of repair. An example of the required match amounts are shown below:
Table 1: Financial Commitment for Sidewalk Repair detached from curb
50’ Length, 4’ Width = $60 per linear foot
Table 2: Financial Commitment for Sidewalk Repair attached to curb
50’ Length, 4’ Width = $68 per linear foot
Measure the existing linear feet of sidewalk along your property line, then call 311 (210-207-6000) to determine the cost sharing rate. 311 will submit all service requests to Transportation & Capital Improvements for investigation and a formal cost estimate.
