The Sidewalk Assessment is a yearly project administered by the Engineering Department, where public sidewalk is reviewed and inspected for deficiencies on a ten-year cycle. The City is divided into ten zones and one zone is inspected each year. By City Ordinance Sec. 19-183, abutting property owners are required to reconstruct all broken or defective sidewalks, when notice is given from the City of Cedar Falls. If you have any questions regarding the sidewalk assessment project, please contact the Engineering Department at 319.268.5161.
