The City of Deer Park is pleased to offer its residents reimbursement for replacing their broken sidewalks through its Sidewalk Program.
As a walking school district and a small city where many folks like to walk their pets, jog or walk to the grocery or church we want to improve the safety of our sidewalks by making it more affordable for residents to replace sidewalk panels that are broken or uneven. In the budget we have allocated $2,500 toward sidewalk reimbursements.
The program works like this: residents will submit an application and choose a bonded contractor. The city will inspect prior to and after pouring the cement. The resident will submit their receipt for reimbursement after the job is completed.
The scale of reimbursement is as follows:
- projects up to $400 reimbursed at 50%
- projects $400-750 reimbursed at $250
- projects $750-1,000 reimbursed $300
- projects over $1,000 reimbursed $400
- corners over 90 running feet reimbursed on an individual case basis
Residents doing the work themselves can receive partial compensation for materials used. Brochures with detailed information will be available at the city building 7777 Blue Ash Road or call (513) 794-8860.
