City of San Diego working to help property owners fix sidewalks

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego’s efforts to repair thousands of damaged sidewalks across the city is getting a boost.

Starting in three months and lasting for the rest of the year, the city of San Diego will waive the more than $2,000 fee it charges property owners to fix damaged sidewalks.

District 5 Councilman Mark Kersey is dedicating as much as $100 million over the next decade to complete a backlog of sidewalk repairs. Kersey, who chairs the Active Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said the money will be divvied up evenly over the next decade.

He was in studio to discuss the plan.
