Sidewalks are a key component of the City of Bloomington's transportation system, allowing for increased mobility and an option for non-motorized transportation.  Due to heavy use, age and weather, sidewalks can become damaged and in need of repair.  Here you can find a complete overview of sidewalk repair information and requirements.  

Who Is Responsible for Repairing Sidewalks?

In accordance with the Bloomington Municipal code § 12.04.010, property owners are responsible for keeping the sidewalks adjacent to their properties in good repair.

If you have sidewalks that are in need of repair, you may receive a sidewalk notification letterfrom the City of Bloomington.  As part of this program and our effort to improve the condition of sidewalks in the community, the normal excavation permit fee will be waived. The City requests that the sidewalk repairs take place within ninety (90) days from the date this letter was postmarked.

In order to assist you with undertaking sidewalk repairs on your property, a listing of City of Bloomington approved and bonded concrete contractors is provided for your convenience.

If you have Questions or Need more Information:

Please contact Danny Bitner, Assistant Director of Street Operations or Danna Workman, Grant Coordinator,  City of Bloomington Street Department .  They can be reached at (812) 349-3448, or via e-mail.

Sidewalk Repair Assistance Program

Per city code, property owners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of sidewalks that are adjacent to their property.

The purpose of this program is to make funds available for City of Bloomington owner occupied residential properties within designated areas to complete the repair of their adjacent sidewalk.

This program is a partnership between the City of Bloomington, its residents, and vetted local contractors.
