On March 4, 2015, the Martinez City Council unanimously adopted Ordinance No. 1384, adding a “Sidewalk Maintenance and Repair” chapter to the City’s Municipal Code. The primary purpose of the Ordinance is to affirm that fronting property owners are responsible for repair and maintenance of sidewalk areas adjoining their property. The Ordinance also establishes clear legal liability to property owners for injuries or damages to third parties as a result of failing to maintain safe and non-dangerous sidewalks.
