As part of its Capital Improvement Program (CIP), the City of Charlotte builds sidewalks to provide a safe, comfortable and connected pedestrian system to improve the quality of life of its residents, visitors and businesses.
The City's adopted Transportation Action Plan (TAP) calls for the prioritization, design, construction and maintenance of convenient and efficient transportation facilities to improve safety, neighborhood livability, promote transportation choices and meet land use objectives.
The City allocates money (through neighborhood bonds) to fund the Sidewalk Program. Sidewalks are requested and prioritized in accordance with the City's Sidewalk Retrofit Policy. Sidewalk repairs can also be requested by calling 311. Citizens may learn more about the Sidewalk Program by contacting Charlotte's Department of Transportation at 704-336-3893 or visiting the web site: Charlotte's Sidewalk Program
