Good news everyone! The Town of Smithers is preparing for its yearly sidewalk upgrades. We know we can’t repair all our sidewalks at once, so we have to start with the ones that need it most. If you’re wondering how we choose which sidewalks to repair, here is a list that we follow to help us.
- Volume of pedestrians
- Size of tripping hazards
- Number of tripping hazards within a sidewalk section
- Customer concerns
Our Sidewalk Inspection and Maintenance Policy sets out how often we inspect areas and gives us the information we need to update our repair list. We want to make sure everyone is safe out there, so please call 250-847-1600 if you do notice something out of place. Stay tuned for a map showing the sidewalks that made the list for 2023.
