Precinct 4’s “Sidewalk Policy” limits sidewalk installation from subdivision entrances to school property lines along a curbed major thoroughfare provided the proposed sidewalk connects to an existing sidewalk at the subdivision entrance and the school property line. Sidewalk requests that do not comply with the Sidewalk Policy, but will provide a safety component for children walking to school along a curbed thoroughfare, may be considered provided:
- The sidewalk installation is the only viable means for accommodating the school-related pedestrian activity and
- The requesting entity (local municipal utility district, homeowners association, or school district) funds 50 percent of the project costs.
A requesting entity may proceed with sidewalk installation without Precinct 4’s participation and Harris County will accept the sidewalks for maintenance purposes should the improvements be built according to Harris County sidewalk specifications.
If the sidewalk damage is caused by a leak (sinkhole) in the storm sewer, Precinct 4 maintenance crews will repair the sinkhole and sidewalk. However, Precinct 4 will only repair a sidewalk that has been damaged by a sinkhole. If the sidewalk damage is not the result of a sinkhole, Precinct 4 will not be able to accommodate the request. Sidewalks are typically installed by the developer as an amenity to the community, therefore, sidewalk repair ultimately is the homeowner’s responsibility, unless the damage is caused by a sinkhole as noted above.
Standing water next to a curb. For standing water in a ditch, please select ditch maintenance.
