2013 Program Closes to New Applicants After January 3rd

Due to the high number of applications received, the Chicago Department of Transportation announced that it will cease accepting applications after January 3rd. The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program is an extremely 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.

Applications will only be accepted through the City’s 311 system. Please note that if you applied for the program in previous years, you must apply again in 2013.
