Infrastructure is vital to a neighborhood’s economic development, vibrancy, appeal, and safety. Alderman Thompson is committed to maintaining and replacing our Ward’s aging infrastructure.

Shared Cost Sidewalk 

Sustaining sound infrastructure is vital to a community’s health.  By participating in the Shared Cost Program and replacing your sidewalk, you will increase your property appeal and make a significant contribution towards improving our community.

The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program allows residents to replace the existing sidewalk in front of their home at a significantly lower cost than by hiring a private contractor. Through this program, homeowners and the City share the cost of sidewalk improvements.

Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis and registration starts in January of next year.
