Funding

Capital Improvements Program (CIP) Direct Funding


Every year, money is allocated for sidewalk construction. To determine how that money is spent, City staff identifies and reviews sidewalk gaps. These sidewalk gaps are then prioritized based on several factors such as cost, location and safety benefits.


Capital Improvements Program Indirect Funding


Other capital improvements projects, such as road-widening projects, include sidewalk construction. For example, this process helped identify the gaps along Southlake Boulevard as a priority. Many of those gaps are being bridged as part of the ongoing Southlake Boulevard deceleration lane project.

Grant Funding


City staff actively seeks out federal and state grant funding opportunities for sidewalks and applies whenever we are eligible.

Developers Agreements


With limited exceptions, all new commercial and residential developments must provide sidewalks along City streets.

Neighborhood Sidewalk Matching Funds Program
