Different cities handle city sidewalk differently throughout the Denver Metro Area; However, in Denver there is “Denver’s Neighborhood Sidewalk Repair Program” (NSRP) which addresses city sidewalks throughout all of Denver. Their entire operation is focused on maintaining city sidewalks and to address those sidewalks that are damaged, severe sloping or uneven.

As per ordinance, all Denver property owners are liable for the maintenance of city sidewalks that are adjacent to their property. In an effort to assist with this, the city has extended repayment programs and discounts for those home owners and property owners that qualify for such assistance. Denver is very dedicated to maintaining sidewalks and roads. As a matter of fact in some instances, the city is authorizing less expensive type repairs which was not previously allowed (repairs like grinding and crack repair).

Hazardous Sidewalks

If the manager of public works determines that any sidewalk in Denver is in such bad condition that it presents a hazard to members of the public in large, then they will set forth a notice to the homeowner about remedying the situation. This notice will typically come in the mail and it will also be posted on the property adjacent to the sidewalk that needs to be replaced or repaired.

The notice will contain a description of what needs to be repaired or replaced, an explanation of the hazard as well as a complete statement covering the property owner’s right to appeal the decision of the public works manager. Typically all such requests from Denver will need to be completed within 45 days to comply with the manager’s request. If the work is not completed by the property owner within that time, then the city will come in with their own crews and complete the project and charge the property owner for the work completed.

If you have received a notice that your sidewalk needs to be repaired, you will want to work with a concrete contractor that has the ability to pull “NSRP” permits. Best 17 Denver Contractors 4 Years In A Row!
