Sidewalk Replacement Program
Sidewalk replacementMaintenance of sidewalks is the responsibility of the property owner. The City of Allen currently has a program to share in the cost of repairs. This includes a 50% cost share of the total cost to repair your sidewalk.

The City completes the repair work either through in-house expertise or through a contractor. Before any work begins, the property owner must pay their total share of costs.  Read more information on sidewalk fees.
