SIDEWALK AT 142 and 146 YORK ST. is VERY DANGEROUS - has been for several years.
sorry one more comment - also i emailed DPW to ask if this is in the schedule for repairs -
city owned sidewalk - before howard w left - he was made aware of the sidewalk issue. i left a message at DPW for an update -
i think what would be great would be a list on the city website of issues acknowledged and scheduled for repairs - something that could help us residents understand the timeline better.
i haven't forgotten about this - i am working to compile a list of the worst sidewalks in the ward to put together for a spring/summer build season.
Property owners are responsible for clearing sidewalks of snow and other potentially hazard conditions, and are liable if failure to do so causes injury. The City holds liability for damage caused by physical defects in the sidewalk when it is found that the City should have reasonably known about the defect, though the City can force a property owner to fix a physical defect of which it becomes aware (or lien the property owner for the cost of the repair if the owner does act) if the defect was not caused by the City.
Defects caused by the City principally include raised slabs from roots of City-owned trees, though can be from other causes. Defects that the City can mandate a property owner fix include raised slabs caused by trees on the owner’s property, damage caused by vehicles on the sidewalk, and age-related wear. In practice, the City will only force a property owner to repair the sidewalk if the damage is caused by improper use such as parking a vehicle on the sidewalk.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
