Sidewalks, Curbs & Gutters

The City of Stockton Public Works Department oversees construction and repairs of sidewalks, curbs, and gutters along public right-of-ways.  Once installed, Stockton Municipal Code requires that these right-of-way improvements become the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. 


The State of California Streets and Highways Code, Section 5600, states that property owners are responsible for maintenance of the following: 

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

The Public Works Department is responsible for damage caused by City trees.  If you have or know of a damaged or raised sidewalk, please submit a service request for Sidewalks or call the Municipal Service Center.
