The City of Newburgh recently published its sidewalk replacement program guidelines and application. It’s a program many property owners don’t know exists. The City will pay 50% of sidewalk replacement up to $2,000. This is open to all property owners regardless of income. During the application, the Conservation Advisory Commission may suggest a tree for your sidewalk. There is no cost to the property owner for the purchase of the tree. But make sure to obtain a permit before you begin your work.
Think replacing sidewalks are no big deal? They are a huge deal and are part of the historic fabric of Newburgh and cities alike. Check out the details of the project pictured above to see the difference a sidewalk upgrade can make.
