The City of Decatur has developed a preliminary list of improvements for Phase 2 of the City’s sidewalk program. Locations of the proposed sidewalk improvements are described on the map below. A list of the proposed sidewalk improvements is also included.

Several of the proposed sidewalk improvements were based on petitions received from neighborhood residents. Others were the result of staff recommendations based on the priorities described above. It is anticipated that construction of Phase 2 of the sidewalk improvement program will start in 2009.

Budget: $1,200,000
Status: Under Construction
Bid Date: Phase 2 Part 2 - September 2010
Construction: October 2010 - May 2011

sidewalk4The city-wide sidewalk improvement program began in 2004 with funding from annual appropriations by the City Commission and the goal of having a sidewalk on one side of every street in Decatur. About 3 1/2 miles of new and replacement sidewalks have been built to date. Generally, priority has been to:
  • Provide safe walking routes to the City’s schools
  • Close gaps in the existing sidewalk system
  • Provide sidewalks where there is a substantial amount of existing pedestrian traffic and in areas with high volumes of vehicular traffic
  • Respond to citizen requests
  • Repair existing sidewalks in poor condition

Proposed Sidewalk Program: August 2008
