Residents or neighborhoods can submit requests to construct or fill sidewalk gaps within their neighborhoods through the Sidewalks Matching Funds Program. New sidewalk construction may require property owners or HOAs to dedicate pedestrian access easements to allow construction to occur.
If the city owns the sidewalk, a Southlake Serves form can be completed with the request to have a sidewalk evaluated for repairs. If the sidewalk is on private property, the homeowner or HOA will be responsible for the repair and maintenance. If a homeowner or HOA is responsible for the repair of a sidewalk, contact Public Works for assistance with the guidelines and inspection process.

Sidewalks are guided by a master plan that includes recommendations for sidewalk and trail segments across the City. Using the master plan as a guide, sidewalks ultimately get built by one of four ways:

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:
It cost’s anywhere from $20-60 per linear square foot to build sidewalks. Get more sidewalk funding information here.
As much as possible, we work to include the cost of new sidewalks into existing projects. This could include adding sidewalks to a new roadway project. On the commercial side, we work with developers to include sidewalks in their developments as well. When those options are not possible, we also actively seek out federal and state grants to help fund new sidewalks. More details about our sidewalk funding process can be found on the Building & Funding Sidewalks webpage.
