City Sidewalks

Homeowners are responsible for maintenance and repair of sidewalks.  In 1993 the City completed a Transition Plan, required by the Americans’ with Disability Act, which addressed public buildings and surrounding property.  The Transition Plan is designed to improve accessibility for citizens on public rights-of-way that include streets, bridges, intersections, sidewalks, trails and bikeways.  Any new construction and renovation to City property after that time complied with the specifications required by the Americans’ with Disabilities Act.  The City of Norfolk worked with the Federal Highway Administration to develop and implement a Sidewalk Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way to comply with the Americans' with Disabilities Act.  The Mayor and City Council approved this plan on February 21, 2006. 

Some of the items included in the plan below are a review of public rights-of-way to improve accessibility, a proposal that sidewalk waivers shall be limited to areas of no current or no future pedestrian travel, the procedure for making accessibility requests, and a grievance procedure for citizens.

The map below outlines the City's review of public rights-of-way to improve accessibility for all citizens.  Staff will conduct inventories of sidewalks and trails to remove and replace broken or misaligned sidewalks that could cause tripping, narrow sidewalks, correcting cross slope problems and providing for ramps where needed.  This inventory of sidewalks needing repairs is to be completed over a nine year period with one section in each ward to occur each year.  The areas of town scheduled for sidewalk inventory/review are outlined on the map by year.
