Sidewalk Replacement Program
In order to promote safety in Canton neighborhoods, and improve the appearance of the community, Canton has adopted a sidewalk ordinance and program.
Sidewalks are inspected in designated neighborhoods (click here to view the 2012-2014 Sidewalk Repair Program Master Plan Map) on an annual basis in order to determine if any portion of the sidewalk is in need of replacement. If, after inspection, the township determines that a homeowner's sidewalk is in need of repair, the homeowner will be notified accordingly.
Canton's Utility Inspector will place "Green Dots" denoting resident responsibility and "Red Dots" denoting Township responsibility for all sidewalk repairs. All subdivision ramps in need of repair will be replaced to meet the guidelines set by the American Disabilities Act (ADA).
After inspections have been completed, a Public Hearing for Necessity of Repairs is scheduled. Notification letters are mailed with the time, date and location of the Public Hearing. The letters also include an estimated quantity and cost of the sidewalk to be repaired. After the hearing, homeowners have 60 days to complete repairs. Options for sidewalk repair are provided in the notification letters and in the Sidewalk Program Brochure.
Sidewalk repair construction is anticipated to begin after Memorial Day and be completed by the end of July. Invoices for repair work will be mailed in the Fall/Winter.
