Sidewalk Inspection & Maintenance Policy


On September 12, 2016, the City Council approved a Sidewalk Inspection & Maintenance Policy.  The policy provides standard specifications for sidewalk construction in residential areas. It also sets a timeline for regularly inspecting and repairing residential sidewalks. In periods between inspections, Public Works staff are allowed to make patches with asphalt or other durable materials. Residents who want to do work on their own sidewalks must apply for a Sidewalk Permit for work in the City Right of Way.

Streets

City streets allow residents and visitors safe and easy routes of travel around the City. Streets are maintained throughout the year by the Public Services Department.


Street Lights


To report a street light that is out or blinking, call City Hall, 763-425-2624, ext. 101, or email with the exact location of the problem light, and include a house/street address and the nearest intersection. Please include whether the street light is out or blinking. If you choose, you may also contact Xcel Energy's Outdoor Lighting Outages at 1-800-960-6235 directly or at their website to Report an Outdoor Lighting Outage online.

Feasibility Report for the Street Project (18,161 KB)

The meeting was hosted by Osseo City Engineer Lee Gustafson, WSB & Associates

MEETING PURPOSE: The informational meeting was an opportunity for the city to hear thoughts and concerns that residents may have regarding this proposed project. Resident input will be used to help prepare the feasibility report for this project.

FUTURE ACTIONS: The full feasibility report is scheduled to be reviewed by the City Council on November 13, 2017. At that time, the City Council will consider approving the feasibility report, and authorizing the preparation of final plans and specifications. It is important for the City to know about resident concerns before the final plans and specifications are approved. If the project is ordered to proceed by the City Council, an assessment hearing would be scheduled in the spring of 2018. At that time, it is not likely changes could be made to the project.

ANY QUESTIONS: Please contact City Engineer Lee Gustafson at 763-762-2821 or lgustafson@wsbeng.com

2016-2017 Residential Sidewalk Repairs

The City completed repairs during the summer of the 2017. 

Due to lower-that-expected costs, the City has been able to fund the entire project with federal Community Development Block Grant funds and an additional contribution from the State of Minnesota’s Small Cities Assistance Program. Under these special circumstances, there will be no property owner contribution required for the 2017 Sidewalk Repairs.

We thank you for your patience during this project, and hope that everyone in the community will be able to enjoy the new sidewalks.

If you have questions about the city’s sidewalk repair program, please visit the city's blog post about sidewalks.
