Sidewalk inspections begin Friday, April 12

Altoona Code Compliance staff will begin walking sidewalks in the community as part of the annual sidewalk inspection program.

For 2024, staff will focus on a quadrant of the city shown on the map available here.

Please note that initially staff will only be walking the sidewalks, marking as needed. Should marks be made on sidewalks on your property, no initial action is needed. City staff will work to collect a list of where repairs are needed and will reach out to impacted property owners later this year on an as needed basis.

Markings made by this crew will be done with fluorescent pink paint.
