We Want You . . . To Have a Sidewalk In Front of Your House
The City of Perryville has created a new program to make it easier for property owners to install sidewalks in front of their home.
The Residential Sidewalk Installation Program allows the homeowner to hire the contractor of their choice to build the sidewalk, and the City of Perryville will pay the contractor up to $25.00 per linear foot for the sidewalk construction. The City of Perryville will provide any necessary engineering, legal or surveying services, and will provide your contractor the sidewalk design standards and specifications.
Why? Because not only do sidewalks keep us safe from traffic, they help create a healthy and active lifestyle. Connected sidewalks encourage residents to go out and about in their neighborhoods – to take an evening stroll around the block and enjoy the fresh air! Sidewalks provide a place for neighbors to visit and kids to play. They provide safe routes to school and accessibility for those who cannot drive. Sidewalks can even beautify a street and neighborhood.
So, what are you waiting for? Help us close the gaps in the City’s sidewalk system. Nobody likes it when the sidewalk ends … and now, it doesn’t have to.
