Delray Beach: Sidewalk requirements to change

    The City Commission amended its sidewalk ordinance on Oct. 20.
    The 11 historic-home owners who had paid into the sidewalk fund will get their money back, the Delray Beach city manager said after the meeting. Those homeowners had paid a total of $44,994 instead of building a sidewalk.
    The language in the old ordinance referred to “said sidewalk,” but in some historic districts no sidewalk will be built because sidewalks were never part of the neighborhood. The idea was to pool the money for use elsewhere in the city where sidewalks are needed. The ordinance passed last fall as part of the city’s revised land development regulations.
    Sidewalks will be required in all new communities, new residences, home renovations of 50 percent or more or additions of 25 percent or more.
