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.
