Sidewalk Program

We usually take sidewalks for granted, but they do play an important role in the quality of life we expect in Avon Lake. They provide safe routes to schools, parks, commercial establishments, and are a healthy way to connect our Avon Lake. Over time, sidewalks can become damaged from weathering, tree roots, and even regular use. Damaged sidewalks can pose a hazard to pedestrians, so repairs to sidewalks help reduce the likelihood of someone getting injured. For this reason, the City of Avon Lake is re-energizing its Sidewalk Program, which was first implemented in 1972. Similar to our neighboring communities, this program aims to improve the overall condition and quality of the existing sidewalks to provide a safe, ADA-accessible pathway for pedestrian travel.
