Sidewalk Maintenance & Liability

Posted on September 29, 2017


Did you know there are over 275 miles of sidewalk in San Rafael? After significant work with neighborhoods and property owners, the City Council will consider a sidewalk maintenance and liability ordinance at their meeting on Monday evening, at 7 p.m.  The proposed program clarifies the responsibility for performing and funding maintenance as well as liability and follows the best practices of other cities and towns in Marin and across the state. The City Council will also consider a cost-sharing program to match property owners with a 50% match, up to $1,000 for sidewalk improvements with additional City funding for curb and gutter repair and tree work.
