Who is responsible for repairing the sidewalk in front of my property?

Pursuant to the California Street & Highways code §5610-5614, it is the property owner’s responsibility to repair sidewalks that front their property.  If the street is County-maintained, you will need to procure an Encroachment Permit before commencing any work.  However, all fees associated with the Permit are waived for sidewalk repair. Visit our Land use permits page to learn more about an encroachment permit.
