Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We are looking for sample language for an ordinance requiring
construction of sidewalks upon building construction.
Milford requires sidewalk construction along property frontage when
a new principal building is erected, when an existing principal building
is extensively altered, when a building or site use requires site plan
review and to replace existing sidewalk to eliminate a hazard. Traverse
City and Grand Ledge have similar requirements. There are variations from
city to city. Copies of some sample ordinances
are available on this web site.
