State College property owners may get notice for sidewalk repairs

More than 1,300 State College sidewalk blocks have been deemed in need of repair following a Public Works Department evaluation, a borough news release said.

Following approval of a contractor by Borough Council on Monday, Public Works will be sending more than 500 letters to property owners, notifying them of the need to repair or replace sidewalks abutting their property.

Sidewalks in need of repair will be marked with a white dot, the release said. By ordinance, it is the responsibility of the property owner to make repairs or replace damaged sidewalks, orrange repairs with this borough.

Questions and requests should be sent to the Public Works Department at or at 234-7140.
