Sidewalks are required at any new construction site within the City. Any developed land that does not have sidewalks currently would be required to install them at the time of a major renovation or addition.Chapter 8 in the Engineering Design Standards covers sidewalk requirements.

Homeowners are responsible for maintenance and repair of sidewalks.

South Dakota law (Codified Law 9-46) makes the owner of the property ultimately responsible for any injuries caused by a defective sidewalk.
