City of Houston Sidewalk Variance Form

The city recently changed its standards for sidewalk replacement form 4 ft. wide to 5 ft wide regardless of location and type of street. This new requirement is detrimental to our street trees and alters the character of our neighborhood by creating more paved surfaces.  BOCA encourages all neighbors  who are contemplating a sidewalk replacement and builders building new homes to replace sidewalks with 4 ft wide sidewalks to match the rest of the neighborhood.  The city has a variance procedure that is easy to follow. The application can be found here.  Select “HOA Letter” as your reason for requesting the variance. Please attach our letter to your request. The BOCA  letter can be found here.
