The City of Lawrence has begun Phase 2 of its Sidewalk Hazard Mitigation Program. The area included in Phase 2 is bounded:
LiveWell Douglas County has supported city efforts to improve the sidewalk network and will continue to closely monitor progress on the city's sidewalk program.
While rebuilding hazardous sidewalks remains the financial responsibility of the homeowner of the property adjacent to the defective sidewalk, city assistance is available to low-income residents who must rebuild sidewalks.
There have also been changes made to the program in 2019 which allow residents to have the city oversee sidewalk repairs and make payments to the city. By selecting this option residents can avoid having to go through the process of hiring a contractor to do the work.
LiveWell has developed a fact sheet about the city's program which you can find at this link.
