The Street Department manages repair and maintenance of existing sidewalks, in addition to fixing potholes, curb repair, road construction, and preventative maintenance.
The Engineering Services Department administers the design, development, and construction of new sidewalks in the public right of way. Additionally, new development is required to build sidewalks as part of the Denton Development Code.
Funding: 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. [Driveways are the responsibility of home and business owners.] The department works on a call-in complaint process. Each request is evaluated by staff for urgency and status. A plan of action, if any, is then established.
