Several years ago the Village of Ashville Mayor began a program to promote sidewalks in the community. TheSidewalk/Curb Assistance purpose was to provide a safe area for pedestrian use. Without a sidewalk people would have to use the front yard of a home or the street. Seed money was established to encourage sidewalks. This program has been extended to include curbs. A resident can apply for up to $500 (sidewalk) or $1000 (curbs). The grant forms are available at 200 East Station Street or online below.
The requirements for size/location (planning & zoning ordinance), and construction (Columbus Building Standards) of a sidewalk or curb can be found under "Village Departments" the dropdown is "Planning & Zoning/Building" or clicking on the sidewalk image to the right.
