The City's Sidewalk Improvement Policy was created to provide a objective, consistent method to prioritize sidewalk projects.

Sidewalks constructed as part of the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) follow the Sidewalk Master Plan and focus on overall mobility needs. With new construction, developers install sidewalks or provide funding as required by the City’s development regulations and impact fee ordinance. The neighborhood sidewalk program is a way to partner with the neighborhoods to provide primarily recreational and amenity features to local residential streets.

Neighborhood Sidewalk Program

As a part of this year’s Capital Sidewalk Program, the City of Sandy Springs is offering residents residing on proposed sidewalk locations the opportunity to indicate their interest in donating any right-of-way required for the proposed sidewalk project.  Donated right-of-way will impact potential points a project receives as part of the overall project scoring and ranking per the City’s approved Sidewalk Program Project Scoring guidelines.  

Residents interested in improving the overall score and potential ranking of a project in their neighborhood are asked to contact the City’s Public Works Customer Service representatives by calling 770-730-5600 and indicating that they would like information related to right-of-way donations for a scored sidewalk project.  Residents will need to have the name of the scored sidewalk program project from the City’s master list. The caller will also be asked for a point of contact, including telephone, email and physical address for those who are calling on behalf of a neighborhood group. Customer service representatives will log the requests and forward to appropriate staff. 

City staff reviewed submitted requests, followed up with residents to confirm the specified project and addressed questions.  A list of the property owners for the specific sidewalk project site and a right-of-way donation intent form was forwarded to interested residents to be completed by each impacted property owner.

Donation statements were due back to the Public Works Department by November 16, 2016, in order for the project to receive credit in this year’s scoring process. Scores were finalized and presented to City Council on January 17, 2017, for final approval.
