On June 11, 2012, the VHCA Board reviewed the first VHCA Sidewalk Bundle program and voted to fund up to $15,000 for sidewalk improvements in the bundle. Plans are to develop future bundles in the neighborhood, if the St. Charles project is successful.
The funding program is for owners who require assistance to replace their sidewalk. The program contributes up to half of a property owner’s cost of replacing a sidewalk, as part of the bundle, up to $500 for a sidewalk segment. If a property has two segments (corner properties have a segment in front and a segment on the side) then the program will contribute up to $300 or 50% for the second segment.
Look for sidewalk improvements along St. Charles Ave. by the end of the year.
