Step On A Crack...

From Ald. Cappleman's latest newsletter:

"Shared Cost Sidewalk Program - Opens January 1, 2012. Is the sidewalk in front of your property in disrepair? The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program is a popular program in which residents share the cost of sidewalk repair with the City. The program has been a successful service for many years, offering an outstanding value to property owners. All property owners pay the same square-foot cost for new sidewalk: $3 per square foot--well below what a private contractor would charge.

The 2012 program will open to participants on January 1st, 2012. Participation will proceed on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that the program typically reaches capacity quickly, so you are encouraged to apply early in the year. Interested residents should call 311 on January 1st. Please note that if you applied for the program in previous years, you must apply again in 2012. Follow this link for more information."


  1. Sidewalks are near curbs.

    Curbs remind me of the Curbed Cup.

    Vote for Uptown, or not.
