Safe Sidewalks LA
The City of Los Angeles has launched an unprecedented sidewalk repair program, SAFE SIDEWALKS LA, which will invest $1.4 billion over 30 years to make sidewalks accessible to everyone.
These repairs will improve neighborhood safety and boost the quality of life. Sidewalk repairs are being made in front of city facilities and this next phase is an expansion of the repair program that will address broken sidewalks throughout the City of Los Angeles.
Safe Sidewalks LA includes:
*Access Request Program: People with a mobility disability who encounter physical barriers due to broken sidewalks, broken/missing curb ramps or other barriers in the public right of way can request a repair.
*Rebate Program: A limited-time rebate for eligible property owners willing to pay for their own sidewalk repairs and get them fixed in an accelerated time. Owners can receive up to $2,000 for a residential lot or $4,000 for a commercial lot. The rebate program will be available for three years.
*Also, public can report a sidewalk in need of repair.
