The city has developed a process for reviewing and prioritizing locations for sidewalk construction. Many factors are considered when selecting the locations including the proximity to schools, number of bus stops, existing sidewalks in the area, number of users, the speed limit, existing drainage conditions, obstacles, right of way width, safety hazards, and estimated costs. A team consisting of City Staff, members of the St Lucie County School Board, and the Police Department prepare a sidewalk list for review by City Council. The City Council reviews the list and approves a priority listing of sidewalk projects.
City staff explores many avenues to supplement our city budgets for our sidewalk program. We continue to apply for and are often fortunate enough to be awarded grant funding for many of the sidewalk projects throughout the city.
