The City of Cortez provides an annual sidewalk cost-share program to help residents and business owners either install new sidewalk or replace deteriorated sidewalks on their property. The program encourages and promotes improvement of our public walkways by offering a 50% cost-share agreement with local residents. In addition, the City utilizes this project for maintenance on City sidewalks, ADA accessible ramps, and miscellaneous curb and gutter work.
Applications are accepted until April 15th each year for participation in that year's Sidewalk Cost-Share Program. Application forms can be picked up at the City Service Center in the Industrial Park, or can be emailed, faxed, or printed. For more information, contact the Public Works Department in the City Service Center at 970-565-7320.
Sidewalks are the responsibility of the property owner to clean and maintain.
