Why do some neighborhoods not have sidewalks?

When some of the older neighborhoods were developed, plans at the time did not include adding sidewalks. However, if the neighborhood would like to add sidewalks there are some options. Take a look at our sidewalk planning page to see how sidewalks are planned and built in the City. 

There are several considerations when putting in sidewalks:

  • Available right of way or the willingness of the neighborhood to grant the City an easement to construct the sidewalk
  • Drainage
  • Trees
  • Space
