New South Coast Program Helping Homeowners Pay For Sidewalk Repairs


You know the problem - the sidewalk outside your home may need a repair – but it’s costly and not a priority.

The City Of Ventura are launching the Safe Sidewalks Program, which reimburses 50% of the repair costs – up to $2500 per property – with some qualifying residents receiving 75% of repair costs.

Mary Joyce Ivers – the deputy public works director at the City Of Ventura – says she hopes it’ll expedite sidewalk repairs throughout the City.

The reimbursement program is funded by Measure O, residents must apply by March 31, 2022, and need approval before starting repair work with their selected contractor.

Selected contractors must meet the following criteria:

  • Possess a current City-issued business license;
  • Possess a valid A, C-8, C-12, or C-61:D:06 contractor’s license; and
  • Registered with the State of California’s Department of Industrial Relations.

All project applications must have work completed by June 30, 2022, and approved by the City before receiving reimbursement.

Details on how to apply are here.
