Curb Damage

Residents can help the City maintain curbs in several ways. Weeds and other plant growth can damage curbs. Residents are encouraged to remove weeds from joints and cracks in the curbs and gutters and keep the area clean.

Sidewalk Damage

Every day, thousands of people use Barrie’s sidewalks to exercise, travel, or shop. Broken or damaged sidewalks are not only an eyesore and an inconvenience, they're also a safety hazard. The major causes of sidewalk damage are:

  • uplifting by tree roots.
  • vehicles (especially trucks) driving on the sidewalk.
  • deterioration due to age.

 Help keep sidewalks safe by keeping:

  • sidewalks clear of snow.
  • all vegetation from overgrowing sidewalks.
  • tree limbs from obstructing sidewalks by making
    sure they are at least eight feet above sidewalks.
