Curbs, Gutter & Sidewalks

Curb Gutter Sidewalk BannerThe City's Public Works Department oversees construction and repairs of curbs, gutters and sidewalks along the public right-of-way. Stockton Municipal Code requires these right-of-way improvements to be the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. 

The State of California Streets and Highways Code, Section 5600, requires property owners to be responsible for maintenance of: 

  • sidewalk, including parking strip, curb, and gutter, adjacent the private property,
  • sweeping and removal of debris and weeds, and
  • repair and replacement of sidewalk, if needed.

Damaged Sidewalks

The Public Works Department is responsible for damage caused by City trees only. 

If you have or know of a damaged or raised sidewalk, please submit a service request for Sidewalks or call Operation and Maintenance at (209) 937-8341.
