Resources and Forms
The Berthoud Municipal Code (Chapter 15.11) states that property owners are responsible for the repair or construction of sidewalks adjacent to their property. Any such construction or repair must be consistent with any construction standards set forth by the Town of Berthoud. Sidewalks must be in good repair with an even surface and conformity with the established grade of the streets along which they are constructed.
The Concrete Sidewalk Cost Share is open to single-family property homeowners and non-profit property owners. The Stone Sidewalk Cost Share is open to all property owners.
Property owners with a failed sidewalk may contact the Town at any time to request participation in the Sidewalk Cost-Share Program. Upon receiving an application, the Town will inspect the sidewalk in question and determine if the sidewalk has failed.
Here are a few examples of what would be considered a failed sidewalk:
- Significant lifting or heaving that may cause a safety or tripping hazard.
- Settled curb and gutter.
Here are a few examples of that would not qualify to participate in the program:
- Cracked or minimally settled/lifted concrete surface that does not constitute a tripping hazard.
- Aesthetic issues, such as spalling, do not qualify for the program.
Please note that this program will not fund aesthetic elements, such as stained concrete or stamped patterns.
If the Town determines that the sidewalk has failed, the property owner must solicit a minimum of three bids from qualified contractors to repair or replace the sidewalk. All bids must be provided to the Town within five business days of receipt for approval or disapproval.
If approved by the Town, the property owner may proceed with having the work completed. Upon completion of the work, the property owner will request the Town to inspect the work completed.
Once inspection has been approved, the property owner must submit proof of payment to request reimbursement. The Town will reimburse the property owner within 30 days of receiving the reimbursement request from the property owner.
The Town may notify a property owner of an adjacent failed sidewalk and require repairs to be made by a certain deadline.
