The Charter Township of Kalamazoo offers a program to assist residential property owners with the replacement of sidewalk squares that are in disrepair. The Township may reimburse a property owner for 50% of the cost to repair sections of sidewalk determined by the Ordinance Enforcement Officer to be in disrepair. The maximum subsidy per parcel is $500. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis until the Township’s annual Sidewalk Replacement Fund is exhausted.
Sidewalk squares will be considered in disrepair if any of the following criteria exist:
- Potholes of one or more inches in depth
- A height difference of two or more inches in adjoining sections of sidewalks
- Insufficient slope to adequately drain the water away from the surface
Applications are available online or by contacting the Township Ordinance Enforcement Office at 1 (269) 381-8080 Ext. 137
