Historically, my fair city has practiced residential sidewalk construction in piecemeal fashion, allowing subvision sidewalks to be constructed by developer/builder lot by lot, prior to occupancy. Obviously it takeds a long time to build a complete street network this way.
Other fair cities I have lived and worked have required ALL infrastructure upfront--so the sidewalks are built during street and curb and utility construction.
Builders/developers here complain that it costs too much to repair sidewalks injured during construction process.
What is best and how do I move us in the right direction? Any good sidewalk trigger/standards out there I can reference?
