The City of Gardena Public Works Department maintains, and repairs sidewalks, curbs, and gutters along City of Gardena roads. These rights-of-way are the joint responsibility of the City of Gardena and the property owner on whose property the sidewalk crosses. Property owners are responsible for routine maintenance of sidewalks, curbs, and gutters, such as sweeping, and removal of debris and trash. The Public Works Department handles raised or displaced sidewalks by ramping, grinding, or replacing.Grinding or patching of driveway approaches can be scheduled through the Public Works Department, however, the replacement of driveway aprons (approaches) are the responsibility of the homeowner. If you desire to replace the driveway approach, you need to secure a permit from the Engineering Department.
