Airdrie has hundreds of kilometres of sidewalk, and this number is growing with every new subdivision constructed. Engineering Services reviews sidewalk plans to provide residents with a safe and economical means of transportation.
In new developments sidewalks are maintained by developers until the City takes over ownership. During Final Acceptance Certificate (FAC) inspections, sidewalks are held to City design standards and replaced or repaired as necessary. After FAC approval, sidewalk repair and maintenance is done during local improvements or as part of the Public Works annual concrete replacement program.
Engineering Services reviews street plans for all new subdivisions within the city to ensure current and future commuter needs are met.
Developers are responsible for monitoring and keeping the streets clean until the City takes over ownership. Once approval has been received, Public Works is responsible for maintaining city streets. Public Works has an annual spring cleaning program and will further monitor roadways and clean on an as-needed basis.
