The Baker City Public Works Department will be accepting Sidewalk Repair/Replacement Grant applications through May 31st.
Application forms are available online (click here) or in the Baker City Public Works Department in City Hall, 1655 1st Street, Baker City.
To qualify, you must be improving an existing sidewalk. This is a reimbursable grant, meaning grant dollars will not be dispersed to property owners until the sidewalk improvement project is complete and the final inspection reflects that the "new" sidewalk meets the City of Baker City's construction specifications.
This grant is awarded at the rate of $2.50 per square foot of qualifying sidewalk construction. The maximum grant award available for each property with single sidewalk frontage is $1,250. The maximum grant award available for each property with double sidewalk frontage (corner lot properties), where sidewalk improvements are being done to each of the sidewalk frontages, is $1,500.
