The City of Lebanon cost sharing program for sidewalk replacement is a great option for residents seeking to partner with the city in having improvements made in their neighborhood. Under this program, the city, and the petitioning resident (or residents) will pay 50 percent of the cost of the replacement. Here’s how it works:
Submit the petition to the Planning and Zoning Department, 401 South Meridian Street, Lebanon, IN 46052 Attn: Derek Warren or they can be emailed to: [email protected]
After a petition has been submitted, a cost estimate for the sidewalk replacement will be prepared and provided to the petitioner. If you wish to proceed the project will be scheduled for replacement, performed by the contractor under contract with the city for the current calendar year. The city will pay for 50 percent of the cost of the replacement work and the petitioner will pay 50 percent for the cost of the work. For the project to be scheduled, the petitioner is required to submit to the city their 50 percent of the cost prior to start of the work. In general, sidewalk repairs may cost about $3,555 for a 60’ wide lot (without a curb ramp). In this case, the homeowner would pay $1,777.50.
The city will cost share the driveway approach (portion of the driveway between the street and sidewalk). The petition must be signed by only the owner(s) of the property, as listed on the title. The program is available during the non-winter construction period of the year. Typically, between May and October. Exceptions will be considered based on the weather conditions. Program is first come first serve and is available to any property owner inside city limits until such time the money available is at a zero balance.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact the Planning and Zoning Department at (765) 482-8845.
