Sidewalk Program

The City works to maintain existing sidewalks and construct new sidewalks where needed to create a connected sidewalk network. The City is responsible for:

  • Installation of new sidewalks
  • Repair of existing sidewalks
  • ADA-accessible ramp installation or repairs
  • Curb and gutter construction or repairs

*Driveways are the responsibility of home and business owners.

Denton voters approved in 2014 $2 million of bond funds to be spent on new sidewalks. All new sidewalk requests received are ranked based on several criteria. View the repair criteria. Highest ranked projects will move forward. Repair of existing sidewalk has a similar ranking process. View the ranking criteria.

To request a new sidewalk, report a sidewalk/curb issue, or report an ADA-accessibility issue, fill out this form. For sidewalk questions, contact Pritam Deshmukh (940) 349-7710, or Pritam.Deshmukh@cityofdenton.com

How are sidewalk repairs funded?
The Street Department has an annual budget of $1 million to fund sidewalk repair, curb and gutter, and address Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requests. The department works on a call-in complaint process. Sidewalk requests are evaluated by staff for urgency and status and then a plan of action is established.

Who is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk in front of my home or business?
According to the City code, the City is responsible to fix/repair sidewalks in front of residential properties, assuming the location fits the criteria for repair. Non-residential properties are not included. Read the City code here
