Generally, sidewalk parallel to the street and sidewalk meeting the curb is within city right of way. If you have questions as to exactly what might be within city right of way, the Goodhue County online parcel viewer is a good place to start. You can find the parcel viewer at https://www.co.goodhue.mn.us/524/Maps (make sure to turn on the imagery layer under the Basemap Gallery on the top right of the screen). The parcel viewer isn’t always completely accurate, so please get in contact with the City Engineering Department if you need further assistance. If the sidewalk that you’re replacing is on private property, you will not need to follow the remaining steps on the list, but you need to contact the Building Inspections department at 651-385-3623 to determine whether you will need any additional permits from them for the work that you are proposing to do.
