Sidewalk, Curb and Driveway Apron Project
Many years ago, Oakwood City Council initiated a sidewalk, curb, carriage walk (the walk from the sidewalk to the curb) and driveway apron repair and reconstruction program. The intent of the program is to keep these structures, which are located within the city rights-of-way, in good, safe condition.
Under the city's program, the cost of improvements to roadway curb and driveway aprons is paid by the city, and the cost of improvements to the sidewalks and carriage walks is the responsibility of those persons owning the abutting property. The only exceptions to this are as follows:
- The city pays for sidewalk repairs along the radius at street intersections, including construction of wheelchair ramps where sidewalks meet the street.
- The city pays for sidewalk repair on the side yard of corner properties.
