Sidewalk Repair and Maintenance

Background:  The California Streets and Highways Code requires that property owners maintain the sidewalk area adjacent to their properties. This area includes the sidewalk and any parkway strips between the curb and the property line. If a property owner fails to maintain the sidewalk area, the City can perform the work and then collect the cost from the property owner.

Sidewalk Repair Partnership Program:  To assist property owners on public streets with repair of sidewalks and to improve safety for pedestrians using sidewalks, the City has a Sidewalk Repair Partnership Program where the City and property owner each pay 50% of the cost to repair sections of sidewalks that City inspectors have identified as needing repair. The City’s Municipal Code requires sections of sidewalks to be repaired when they are found to be a trip hazard or pose a potential safety hazard to the public as defined in the City’s Comprehensive Sidewalk Policy No. 801-1.

Downtown Sidewalk Cleaning:  To assist with maintaining clean sidewalk in the downtown area, the City pressure cleans the following sidewalks:

  • 100 and 200 block of Avenida Del Mar, both sides of street
  • El Camino Real between Avenida Palizada and Avenida Presidio, both sides
  • El Camino Real to the first alley on Avenida Victoria, Avenida Granada, Avenida Cabrillo, Avenida Serra, Avenida Miramar and Avenida Palizada
  • Avenida Victoria from Monterey Lane to Coronado Lane on the inland side
  • Avenida Victoria/Del Mar nexus Pier entrance on the ocean side

This pressure cleaning is done twice a year, once before summer and once after the annual Fiesta block party in August.
