Sidewalk Inspection & Maintenance Policy

UPDATE 8/23/2017

After several months of hard work, the 2017 Sidewalk Replacement project is now complete.
The project began last October when property owners received a Notice of Public Nuisance relating to Sidewalk Repairs required on your property. At that time, the City proposed to cover half of the cost of sidewalk repairs for property owners participating in a coordinated City project. The cost share was funded with an allocation of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, administered by Hennepin County.

This spring property owners received a second notice when the City received bids and awarded a contract for the sidewalk repair project. Work on this project has now been completed. Overall costs for the project were much lower than expected.

Due to lower costs, the City has been able to fund the entire project with CDBG 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. In other words, property owners pay nothing for the 2017 Sidewalk Replacement Project.

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

As cooler weather approaches, we would also like to remind residential sidewalk owners of their responsibility to promptly remove snow from their public walkway. All snow must be removed within 24 hours. Those elderly residents unable to arrange for their own snow removal may contact the Household & Outside Maintenance for Elderly (HOME) Program of Senior Community Services. For more information contact 952-746-4046 or visit www.seniorcommunity.org.

UPDATE: 10/28/2016Nui

Sidewalk repair letters were hand-delivered by City Staff this morning. If you weren’t at home when the letters were delivered, please check around your front door to see if a letter was left for you.
If you’d like another copy of the letter or have questions about its contents, please contact City Planner Nancy Abts at 763-425-1454 or nabts@ci.osseo.mn.us

 

Dear Residents,

Safety for our residents and visitors is essential to the City of Osseo. Our small, historic community should be a place that is safe and accessible for everyone. This is an important goal, and everyone must work together to help our city be the best it can be.

In a city as old as Osseo, public safety sometimes requires we spend time and effort repairing and maintaining our shared facilities. Continue reading
