The city has never done a comprehensive review of its 5,000 miles of sidewalks. That might change soon.
City Councilman Mark Kersey, who heads the council’s infrastructure committee, is pushing for a formal evaluation of sidewalks next year.
“It’s something that is long overdue,” Kersey said.
The city plans to hire two engineers and more than a dozen engineering students from local universities to survey all the city’s sidewalks, from Carmel Valley to San Ysidro, and identify problems. The students also would note areas that need sidewalks.
