Neighborhood Sidewalk Program (NSP)
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.
"Call For Projects" period
The City of Spring Hill is pleased to announce a "Call for Projects" for 2018/2019 budget year funding of the Neighborhood Sidewalk Program. Sidewalk projects will be installed in the 2018/2019 budget year, which begins July 1, 2018. The City will receive requests from interested neighborhoods or citizen groups for projects until the deadline of 4 p.m. Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

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.
Submitted requested 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
- Constructibility, 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 rights-of-way required for the project. Mailbox relocation, if required by the final design, will be a homeowner responsibility.
