Sidewalk cost-share program available for San Jacinto neighborhood property owners


Taking a walk in the San Jacinto neighborhood of Amarillo will soon be more convenient.

A unique program is available for property owners in the San Jacinto area – the San Jacinto Sidewalk Cost-Share Program. 

Amarillo City Council recently approved the program which provides property owners in the San Jacinto neighborhood plan boundary the opportunity to be eligible for a cost-share program from 50 percent to 100 percent to improve sidewalks on their property. 

“This is really a unique program that will benefit the San Jacinto area,” said City of Amarillo Assistant Director of Planning Emily Koller. “Sidewalks that are older or in disrepair can be not only an eyesore but also a nuisance and a danger to pedestrians. The goal of this program is to make it easier for property owners to improve their property in many ways.”

The program is only available to property owners within the neighborhood plan boundary. Depending on income, property owners may be eligible to receive financial aid to cover repair expenses for sidewalks on their property. 

The deadline to apply for the program is Aug. 1. To apply for the program, go to: www.sjnamarillo.org
