A Pilot Sidewalk Repair Partnership Program is helping Pasadena property owners pay for repairs to public sidewalks on their property damaged by City-owned trees. The City will match 50 percent of the cost of most repairs, up to $1,000 per parcel. Income-qualified residents may receive up to 70 percent of repair costs, also up to $1,000 per parcel.
Income qualifications are based on the City’s Electric Assistance Program found online at www.cityofpasadena.net/ waterandpower/care.
Property owners cannot be engaged in selling their property and cannot already be involved in a building permit process for property improvements valued at $20,000 or more. Damage to sidewalks caused by privately owned trees or other
circumstances are not eligible and remain the property owner’s responsibility. The City will inspect the sidewalk to determine qualifications, conditions and project limits.
An agreement will be sent to the property owner showing costs. Repairs will be scheduled once the invoice has been paid in full. The City will obtain permits and work with the contractor.
The program is on a first-come basis while funds last. For information, visit www.cityof pasadena.net/ publicworks or (626) 744-4191.
