Petition for improvement of street

Importance of Petition for improvement of streets

Many a time the streets and the sidewalks that lie on the outskirts of the city remain unattended and are hardly improved upon to match the standards of the city that is expanding continuously. This is a thing of concern and the property owners in this area may petition for improvement of streets.

The improvement of streets may require many things to be done such as

  • Paving of the streets to make an acceptable base
  • Resurfacing of the streets
  • Inclusion of the curbs and gutters
  • Widening of the streets
  • Filling of potholes

All the residential streets that come within the limits of the city can be petitioned for improvement of streets. The cost that is incurred in this improvement programme is passed on to the residents of the area who also happen to be the property owner in the area as well as the petitioners. It is by the action of the city council and many a time the property owners that are petitioning for this improvement because the property owners may need to pay for the cost of all the construction on these streets.

The streets that are not matching the standards of the city and once were outside the jurisdiction of the city have been included into the city due to the expansion of the city and therefore it becomes the responsibility of the authorities to get these streets improved so that they become commutable and match the other streets in the city.
