City of San Mateo Municipal Code.

17.24.110 INTENT.

California Streets and Highway Code Sections 5600 et seq. provide that owners of lots or portions of lots fronting on any portion of a public street, when that street or place is improved or if and when the area between the property line of the adjacent property and the street line is maintained as a park or parking strip, shall maintain the sidewalk in such condition that it will not endanger persons or property or interfere with the public convenience in the use of those works or areas.

To promote the public health, safety and general welfare, the Council finds it necessary to enact this chapter, which may be referred to collectively as the Sidewalk Maintenance Ordinance.
