The 2023 Culver Sidewalk Program will open at 8 a.m., Monday, April 3, 2023. The program intends to work with homeowners to replace sidewalks.
The program reimburses the homeowner a set per-square-foot amount for sidewalks and per lineal-foot for curb and curb/sidewalk combination (when the sidewalk and curb are next to each other). This amount is set by the Culver Town Council. This IS NOT a 50/50 program. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to obtain a contractor, provide the town specs, and pay for services.
Applications will be available at www.townofculver.org/documents/sidewalk-program/ after March 14. Completed applications, including a sketch of the property and sidewalk to be replaced, will be accepted via email beginning at 8 a.m. local time, Monday, April 3, 2023. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received after 8 a.m. Applications may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted through July 1 or until the funds set aside for the sidewalk program are committed, whichever is first. Applications for completed projects do not qualify and will not be accepted.
Once applications are received, they will be reviewed by the Utility Superintendent and the measurements will be confirmed by him or one of his employees. The town reserves the right to make adjustments to measurements based on the conditions of the site and will not participate in any concrete placed outside the measurements applied for.
If your site qualifies for the program, you will receive a letter from the Culver Clerk-Treasurer confirming your participation, the amount of reimbursement, and the next steps. Please do not start your project until you have received the confirmation letter.
Sidewalks and curbs must meet ADA and town specifications to qualify for reimbursement. You are responsible for making arrangements with a contractor and providing the town specifications to them. You also are responsible for safety marking during construction, removing the rubble, and returning the construction area to its original condition.
Before placing concrete, you or your contractor must call the utility superintendent for an inspection. He can be reached at 574.292.3943. Failure to do so will result in the loss of reimbursement and may result in the replacement of the concrete at the owner’s expense.
If there are any further questions, please call Town Hall at 574.842.3140.
