    ​​Plainfield Sidewalk Installation
    Sidewalk Installation (3 Mile to I-96)
    ​Completed 2015

    Project Summary
    The City of Grand Rapids installed sidewalk on the east side of Plainfield from 3 Mile to I-96, which did not have sidewalk. This work was done as part of the City's Sidewalk Continuation Program. 

    Project Update(s) 
    01-08-16
    The City recently installed a sidewalk on Plainfield to help reach the City’s larger goal, and public desire, to fill in gaps in the sidewalk network to provide transportation options for all people.

    Please be aware that City ordinance requires that property owners clear all ice and snow, down to the concrete, from sidewalks adjacent to their property within 24 hours of a snowfall.
    If the City receives a complaint about a sidewalk that has not been cleared, the property owner is mailed a written notice of the violation. If the sidewalk is not cleared within 48 hours following the notice, the City will hire a contractor to complete the work and bill the property owner for the labor.

    In
    dividuals needing assistance in clearing sidewalks should contract with a private snowplowing company or seek possible alternatives via the United Way (2-1-1) or their neighborhood association.

    Residents who encounter a sidewalk that has not been cleared within the 24 hour window may file a complaint by calling 3-1-1 (456-3000) or online at
    inspections.grcity.us/citizenaccess by clicking on Report a Code Violation.
