This is ridiculous, why should a property owner pay for a sidewalk that benefits him very little? There is an age old concept called Common Law Sidewalk Immunity which goes something like this. The sidewalk is there purely for the benfit of the public at large and is therefor the responsibility of the City to build and maintain. Most sidewalks are constructed in what is known as the Public Right-of-Way which is actually City property. Google Common Law Sidewalk Immunity to find out about this regulation that is as old as the Law itself. Targeted property owners should band together and file a class action lawsuit against the City for trying to impose this upon them. The time to act is now before this gets too far, otherwise, individual lawsuits will have to be filed after the sidewalks have been constructed.

Anyone going to Rehoboth Beach, can I recommend a nice place to stay, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, access to the beach, pull passes, beach passes, right next to Jungle Jim, less than a mile to the beach.
