Sidewalk Replacement Program

Property owners are responsible for maintaining their sidewalks. The City of Allen currently offers to share in the cost of repairs, covering up to 50% of the total cost. To see if your sidewalk qualifies for this program, contact Community Services at 214.509.4500 or completed a Sidewalk Service Request through the MyAllen App. (See current sidewalk fees.)
The City coordinates and inspects all repair work. Repairs may be performed by city workers or by a contractor. The property owner must pay their total share of costs before work begins. Work will be scheduled and completed as quickly as possible.
