The City of Denver Municipal Code requires that sidewalks be maintained by the adjacent property owner, just like they require the adjacent property owner to maintain their tree lawn.  Although the sidewalk and the tree lawn are both owned by the City of Denver and defined as a “right-of-way,” the city requires the homeowner whose property borders that right of way to maintain the area from their property line to the curb, both the concrete sidewalk and the grassy tree lawn and any landscaping or trees planted in the tree lawn.

You may be required by the City to obtain a permit when doing sidewalk maintenance, please call 311 for more information.
