Property owner responsibilities
As described in

- Maintain all walkways and driveways between the curbline and the right-of-way line.

Requirements for repairing sidewalks
As a property owner, you can repair a damaged sidewalk yourself or have a contractor do the work, but you need to get a sidewalk repair permit and a sidewalk closure permit from the
Permit Application Center. Both permits are free. The permits ensure the repair work is inspected by the City to make sure it meets City Standards.
