New Sidewalks Completed
The new sidewalks along Walnut and Madison are now completed.
From what we can tell, this is all the work that will be carried out on sidewalks in our neighborhood this year. Next year might bring more sidewalks to additional blocks along Madison — or it might not. That all depends on funding, formal requests, and grassroots pressure.
Have new sidewalks gone in near your house? Please send us photos so we can add them to the blog. Taking pictures of concrete slabs might not seem that important, but it’s the only way we can document all the improvements that are taking place across Emerson-Garfield.

How does somebody make a formal request for sidewalk repair? The sidewalk in front of my house on W. Cleveland is literally crumbling. I wasn’t sure if it is something we should repair ourselves? It’s nice that there’s a neighborhood council. I’ll have to mark the next meeting on my calendar!
There was someone else at tonight’s neighborhood council meeting with the very same question. You should be able to repair it yourself after clearing it with the city (since the sidewalk is technically the city’s property), or if you want it to be repaired on the city’s nickel, you can mark it on the neighborhood map that we submit to the city each year.
If you submit your name, address, problem, and contact info to us, we can try our best to pass it on to the city with other sidewalk requests. But we’re residents just like you, so the best thing to do is to come to next month’s neighborhood council meeting (October 10, 6pm at Corbin Senior Center) and help us start to compile formal neighborhood sidewalk requests for 2013.
