If you have a damaged sidewalk or one that could be a safety hazard, the
City of Edmond has a program that could assist you in having the
sidewalk repaired. Your City Council adopted and funded a program to
assist residential homeowners repair sidewalks that are in the city’s
right of way.

The damage to your sidewalk falls within one of these categories:
