ACT NOW TO TAKE ADAVANTAGE OF THE NEW CITY CONCRETE COST SHARE PROGRAM
Concrete repairs to sidewalks and curb gutter adjacent to private property are ultimately the responsibility and liability of the adjacent property owner; however, when the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority sales tax was passed in 2004, the City decided to allocate some of its PPRTA maintenance funding to assist with these repairs. Currently there is an approximately 15-year backlog of citizen requests for concrete repair. This new 50/50 cost-sharing program is designed to allow citizens to get those Priority 1 and 2 areas addressed sooner. This will also allow the PPRTA funding to address more needs with the money allocated. In 2012, $107,500 is budgeted for this program.
Repair needs must meet Priority 1 or 2 levels using objective criteria established under the PPRTA concrete repair program (See below for criteria).
Citizens interested in participating should call 385-5411
