Volunteer Sidewalk Replacement Program

Is your sidewalk in disrepair? The City of Helena can help.

The volunteer sidewalk replacement program helps property owners add sidewalks where missing or replace old and damaged sidewalks. The City consolidates all the sidewalk projects into one bid, which helps keep installation costs low. The City offers a 0% interest loan that is repaid via the property owner's annual tax bill over 10 years.
