Sidewalk Installation & Maintenance
The Town of Chili is proud of its continued effort to improve and encourage pedestrian and bicyclist access within the Town. On any given day, you can see residents using these safe and convenient paths. The Town of Chili is responsible for the maintenance and replacement of all sidewalks constructed along publicly dedicated roads within the Town with the exception of the College Green development.
The Town of Chili encourages the installation of sidewalks within residential subdivisions. Along these roadways, the costs associated with the installation, maintenance, replacement and/or repair of sidewalks is borne solely by those residents directly benefiting from the sidewalks installed within their particular subdivision. These costs shall be assessed through an additional tax levy to the parcels located in the specific Sidewalk District encompassing the properties benefited. Where a Sidewalk District has been formed, the town’s policy is to install, maintain, replace, and/or repair sidewalks as required.
In 2015 the Town completed the development of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
