Neighborhood Sidewalk Program (NSP)

Program Summary

Subject to the availability of funds in the City Budget, the Neighborhood Sidewalk Program (NSP) is intended to be used for small scale multi-modal projects within neighborhoods, including sidewalks and multi-use trails. It is recommended (but not required) that installation costs for Neighborhood Sidewalk Program projects be shared between the City and the neighborhood.

The NSP is administered by City Staff and is subject to availability of funds in the City Budget and final approval by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. City Staff will periodically advertise a "Call for Projects", a period of time when requests for projects may be submitted.

Requests that are submitted will be evaluated and scored on the following criteria for justification:

Safety Factors
Trip Generation Factors (proximity to Schools, Parks and other Civic facilities)
Land Use (Zoning) Factors
Constructability, Location and Other Factors
Neighborhood Cost Share Amount

Final determination will be based on a variety of factors including justification, funding availability and Board of Mayor and Aldermen Approval.

Note: To calculate the square feet for a sidewalk project, multiply the Length of the project by 5 feet, the minimum width of any sidewalk per Spring Hill Subdivision Regulations. For Paved Walking Trails, use 5 feet (minimum for walkway), 6 feet (recommended for walkway or one way bike trail) or 8 feet (minimum for 2 way bike trail). A Homeowners’ Association, Neighborhood Group, or an Individual making the request will need to assist the City in obtaining the necessary easements or Right-Of-Ways that are required for the Project. Mail box relocation, if required by the final design, will be a homeowner responsibility.
